4 Things You Might Not Know About the Book

This week’s Vlog is special because we’re celebrating the first Bright Line Eating book being published in paperback. To commemorate the occasion, I decided to share with you some interesting tidbits that you might not know about how the book came to be, how I felt as I was writing it, and much more. Watch to hear my thoughts.

    Thank you, Susan, for sharing your heart and soul with us. I started BLE in February 2017 and it has forever changed my life. I was thrilled in spring of that year to have your book as another resource, while I was in the Boot Camp. As I continue to go deeper into my own journey with food, I so appreciate your honesty and your ups and downs with your own journey. This journey is not a straight line of success for me, either. Your experience driving through the desert while writing the book touches my heart. I have had similar profound experiences. Thank you for being who you are!

    I have had my Bright Line Eating book for over a year. Purchased thru Amazon it came in paperback! I was a little disappointed because I had borrowed hardcover from the library and wanted hardcover. It’s been out in softcover for over a year.

      Hi, Margie! Where are you located? Curious because it’s just now out in paperback with Hay House, the publisher in the USA.

    Everyone I speak with after they ask me how did you lose the weight, I give them the same comment, ” if you are serious about losing weight, then borrow my copy of Bright Line Eating. If you are not serious, then waste your money somewhere else.” The program is great, and your are the perfect person to take this lifestyle out into the public

    Another issue, you never thanked me personally for contributing to your book. I submitted my story and it was published but never was thanked.. Never a complimentary book, no appreciation ever voiced.

    Susan – I’m happy for you and your book success, but it’s worth noting that publishers keep a book in hardback as long as sales are high because it means greater profits. Your royalties are likely higher for the hardback than for the newly released paperback. I don’t begrudge you that, but why try to twist it into a sign of success for the BLE community? I don’t regard it as a success, except as a business venture for you. (And good for you!)

    As a former professor, I know that many college professors often try to find less expensive ways for students to obtain books, especially their own. In all fairness, you might also tell your followers that they can check libaries or e-books for less expensive options.

      Hi, Marylou!

      Absolutely! We often refer individuals to their libraries and the ebook, which goes on sale for $1.99 a couple of times each year from the publisher. 💕

    I just looked at my book and don’t see any drawings nor could I find anything about your trip across Utah at the end. I have the first edition. Do different editions have different things in them?

      Hi, Diane! The story Susan is talking about begins on page 270. There are several drawings in the book, for example, pages 29, 162, 194, 234. Hope that helps! ❤️❤️❤️

    Susan, i have messed up a few times since December, but i Rezoomed quickly. Still losing weight, though not as rapidly as at the first. Still have 6 lbs. to go to be in the normal weight catagory of BMI. Would like to get into the middle 130’s to mid 120’s. This is the first diet/ lifestyle change that fit me. I promote it almost daily, by voice and pen. Thank you!!!💝

    I am going to reread the book with new insight. I’ve been on the journey since April 2017. My journey is a bumpy one. I never gave up. Each day I learn something new. It’s amazing. I love that it’s not a diet. It’s about your whole life, body and soul. All your parts. I love the people I have made connections with. I am so grateful you got that message in your morning meditation. ♥️

    Susan, I ordered your book just at the conclusion of my Bright Line Eating. I hadn’t yet read the book. But when I heard your story of writing the last few pages on a trip across Utah, I picked up the book and went to the last chapter….. But I couldn’t find that story at all. Where am I missing it? page #____? Thank you!

    Dear Susan,
    Thank you for sharing the story about the book Bright Line Eating. I enjoyed hearing the history of how Bright Line Eating started and grew! I appreciate your candid insight into your inexperience and the story of the artwork. Finally, the story about the trip across Utah- an extremely personal, spiritual moment, shared with your followers. That touched my heart. I truly believe you love those who are following you and benefiting from your knowledge and experience. Thank you for sharing love during this particularly difficult pandemic. May you and your family be blessed with happiness and health throughout this year and each year to come.
    Mary
