Description

For Tory Johnson, weight was always an issue; although she felt ashamed of how she looked, Tory could never find the will to change. When a network executive warned her that if she didn't lose weight her television career could be in jeopardy, Tory experienced something profound: A Shift. She knew she didn't just want to change, she needed to change.

The Shift begins with this eye-opening incident and follows Tory on her weight-loss journey. Tory creates a plan, makes a list of things she is willing to sacrifice, and teaches herself the realities of self-discipline. With disarming honesty, she shares her experience of overcoming the inevitable challenges along the way. In the process, she becomes not just healthier but happier--a shift that impacts every facet of her life.

For anyone who has struggled to make a big life change, The Shift offers valuable lessons and inspiration for taking charge once and for all.

Now, after a second major shift--losing more than sixty pounds in a year--Tory is on a mission to help others change their thinking and achieve a better life.

Praise For The Shift

Tory Johnson's riveting, shoot from-the heart story inspires all of us to live a better life. She shows how a small shift of thinking can have a huge impact on health and weight. Who could ask for a truer champion and friend on the path to our dreams?—Diane Sawyer, Anchor, ABC News

"One brief comment from a colleague gave Tory Johnson the determination to take control of her eating habits, after a lifetime of feeling unhappy about her weight. Her honest, thoughtful, and often hilarious account of how she lost more than sixty pounds, kept her sanity, and changed her eating habits forever will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to eat healthfully. I couldn't put this book down.—Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project
