Welcome to thread 13 of the Paul McKenna's I Can Make You Thin weight loss system.

The Golden Rules that will aid you on your journey with our like minded friendly support system are:

1. Eat what you WANT
2. Eat when you are HUNGRY
4. STOP eating when you are satisfied and full

This weight loss system is about re-educating your body; learning to listen to it and in doing so losing weight and inches. After all, eating a meal is not a competition, it's about enjoying what you are putting into your mouth, but not feeling bloated and uncomfortable (or guilty) afterwards!
Many people have issues around food. Many of us have been brought up by the 'clear your plate' parents of yesteryear which leave us feeling guilty if we leave even the smallest morsel of food, but we are working through this guilt or any other hang up we may have, and we are learning to leave a bit on the plate; return to it another time if we really want to or even feed it to the dog or the bin!
So!! forget diets; they may work for a while, but they aren't permanent solutions. This is a new way of living for your brand new life!! Let's get lighter for those Christmas outfits!!

The Paul McKenna system really works and is easy to maintain.

I've C&P'd our previous threads links as they are helpful.

Here are the book choices on AMAZON which is all you need to get started! they aren't compulsory, but they do help! it's something to refer to and listening to the cd's can really focus you.

This is the tapping technique EXPLAINED - this can be useful to combat cravings.

You don't have to buy the book and CD, but we have found that they do help and somehow they keep you on track, so it would probably be a good investment and will cost you far less than a couple of trips to WW or SW meetings, so do consider having them in your life.

Please feel free to join us, whether it's 10lbs or 10 stones you want to lose.
We are friendly, supportive and successful, but we're not hungry and that is a great way to feel when you are dropping dress sizes at the same time!!! so come on in and start living your new life today and make 2013 your year to drop a dress size or several...if we can get those lbs off a few at a time, just think how we could look and feel for Christmas and The New Year!!!
Some of our thread members are also doing PMK's Virtual Gastric Band and although this thread is not about this avenue, we will still be supportive of our friends partaking of this, so don't think we wont be there for you. I'm pretty sure that the Golden Rules will be just as helpful in this process as the I Can Make You Thin process smile so get stuck in smile

That is good news NoGood smile and of course, you can always eat if you become hungry later on!

I too would love to do fostering, but I don't have enough bedrooms for my Dc's, let alone other children sad

Solo Fri 10-Jan-14 14:27:49

Better! I have been selected to receive a copy of his new book!! grin

NoGoodAtWittyNames Fri 10-Jan-14 14:23:10

Haha I don't fancy him just love the fact he's making a difference to my life (just as well I can't afford private hypnotising, I obviously have therapist issues!!). Well done on you getting your question answered Solo smile

Went out for lunch today, not especially mindful but still stopped when I felt full and then had no desire for dessert, so although not 100% still progress. Won't eat again either until I feel hungry so suspect I won't want tea, but totally fine with that. It feels so good to know even when I'm not 100% in the zone, my brain is obviously changing and adopting new, healthier habits.

Hope the fostering is progressing nicely Jelly do you know who you may be getting? It's something I'd love to do, but don't think I'd be able to let them go at the end

Solo Fri 10-Jan-14 10:45:49

Thing is, he is so not my type!

You just go onto the thread you posted to and he'll type and answer q's and you can type q's etc. I will just be swooning grin

Thanks Solo

Did my posting to PM, and thought of saying 'Paul did you know Solo fancies you', but did'nt you'll be pleased to know.

Anyway you've got competition with NoGood now. You'll be scratching each other's eyes out over smile

Not sure I can get on here at 12, plus not sure how to get onto or do a web chat.

Busy day for me today smile

Solo Fri 10-Jan-14 01:08:11

Yes! I see my competition! Bog offski!! He is mine!!!

Good luck with the fostering meetings Jelly smile

Jellybeans456 Thu 09-Jan-14 20:15:03

Thanks NoGood
It is so true that 20 yrs of bad eating habits, takes some time to go away, and that there are slip ups on the way, but yes we are all heading in the right direction.

That's good news about PM on here for a webchat tomorrow. Will see if I can make it. But got so much going on at the moment regarding fostering. Lots of meetings and phone calls regarding a placement we are getting.

MillyRules Thu 09-Jan-14 18:23:28

Solo......think you have some competition for Mr. McKenna.wink wink wink

NoGoodAtWittyNames Thu 09-Jan-14 16:22:49

Cheers Solo just written a sycophantic post, may as well have just asked him to marry me cos I lurve him soooo much grin.

BrandNew and Jelly we can all do it. The way I look at it is I had 20 years of bad eating habits, that's not going to go away straight away. Of course it's going to take effort and concentration and we will slip up along the way but ultimately we're all heading in the right direction, just need to believe in yourself and know that you deserve it

Solo Thu 09-Jan-14 14:27:55

Ladies! PMK is on a webchat tomorrow at 12 o'clock HERE.

BrandNewIggi Thu 09-Jan-14 10:34:59

He's on the Wright Stuff just now!
(Paul that is grin )

BrandNewIggi Thu 09-Jan-14 10:32:23

Thanks Milly, I don't think I'm trying hard enough tbh.

MillyRules Thu 09-Jan-14 09:17:45

We'll real life does get in the way of conscious eating sometimes but eventually you will be able to tune into yourself anywhere.

BrandNewIggi Thu 09-Jan-14 08:24:49

Have just eaten breakfast whilst reading this thread on my phone hmm that's not allowed is it!

Solo Thu 09-Jan-14 00:49:51

Solo Thu 09-Jan-14 00:44:54

Jellybeans456 Wed 08-Jan-14 19:59:45

Loads on here for me to catch up with. Well done Milly on your losses, you are really in the zone.

NoGood, that book sounds great, and seems to be working for you too.

I've not done too good, last couple of days. Lots of emotional eating going on.

Just feel like snacking chocolate to feel better. Hubby has just set me off, with his moaning.

Keep up the good work everyone, as this all shows it works if being done properly.

NoGoodAtWittyNames Wed 08-Jan-14 15:49:00
