That’s Just Stupid: Weight, What?
F-Word: A three letter word that carries the greatest impact to the
deepest void inside the soulâ€¦Fat there I said it.Just the word
alone makes every hurt, pain, failure or haunting memory rise to the
surface and food is the only thing that will quiet the storm.You
donâ€™t have a problem with food! You have problems, issues,
behaviors and you go to food. There is a big difference!WEIGHT, What?
is the third release in the Now Thatâ€™s Just Stupid, Inc. book
series. Itâ€™s a journey through real weight loss using regular,
every day foods only this time you will solve the issues and keep the
food. No one should tell you what to eat, what not to eat or how much
to eat. YOU know how to do that! What you donâ€™t know is how to
solve the reasons why you overeat. Healthy foods and exercise didnâ€™t
make you fat and they wonâ€™t make you thin UNTIL you face the
emotional issues underneath the weight. This book will show you how
to use your food to guide you toward your C.O.R.E. issues and take
the steps to solve them.

How I Lost a Million Dollars on a Dating Service could be the title of this book but The Woman Behind the Smile is so much more than a â€œCatfishâ€ story â€“ a term used to refer to someone who creates a false online persona to reel someone into a romantic relationship. Many people are looking to online dating as a way to get back into real life after the death of a spouse, divorce or a failed relationship. We paint ourselves as the â€œperfect partnerâ€ with a profile that reflects our lifeâ€™s story, or does it? In The Woman Behind the Smile, Debby shows how during much of her life she hid behind the mask of being the perfect wife, mother, Air Force Officer, banker, legal assistant and friend â€“ until life was completely changed by â€œThe Call.â€ The subsequent rebuilding of her life would include a journey only seen on Lifetime Movie Channel! Like Debby, we all have some hidden stories and like her, itâ€™s now time for us to STAND UP in our power.

The Book Synopsis:
“Heartbreak, Humor and, ultimately, Hope
Thatâ€™s the message that comes through loud and clear in My Pineapples Went to Houston, Lee Gaitanâ€™s personal and powerful tale of surviving a decade of relentless chaos and loss. The â€œshock and awfulnessâ€ began in 2002 when her father died, her mother teetered on the brink of a coma and her husband of 22 years secretly lost all their money and ran off with a stripper. And it was all downhill from there!
Then one day in the midst of all the chaosâ€”somewhere between loud cursing and cryingâ€”she recalled an amusing anecdote sheâ€™d heard about pineapples that spoke to her circumstances in such an unexpectedly humorous way that she couldnâ€™t help but laugh out loud. â€œThat moment of laughter was a small epiphany for me. I realized that I had allowed my sense of humor, which had always mitigated the bad breaks in my life and enhanced the good ones, to fall victim to the machete my ex-husband had taken to my life. I determined right then and there that I could no longer permit that. I instinctively knew that humor was the most potent, and just about the only, protection I had at my disposal to survive the crises unfolding around me, and I vowed to keep it alive.â€
Told with honesty and insightâ€”and, of course, humorâ€”My Pineapples Went to Houston both inspires and entertains readers and offers hope and encouragement to those struggling with their own â€œplans gone outrageously awry.â€
Lee Gaitan is a wife, mother, teacher, author and speaker, but above all she is passionately committed to overcoming lifeâ€™s obstacles, surviving sometimes by the skin of her teeth, but always with humor and optimism. She shares her experience with anyone who will listen with the intent to encourage others to use humor to their benefit.
In the past twelve years Lee has had to deal with more than a healthy helpingÂ of â€œare you kidding me?â€ moments. In 2002, she hit rock bottom. It was so bad shelovingly refers to it as a year of â€œshock and awfulness.â€ That year her father died,her mother was in the hospital, semi-comatose from grief, and her husband of 22 years lost every penny of their money BEFORE running off to Arizona with his girlfriend, who just happened to be a former stripper.
That was just the beginning. She spent the next decade struggling with loss and challenges on every front, from finances and family to health and career.
