Been away so have just seen your post. Have also read this book and found it really made huge amounts of sense to me. Have also read her other book 'Willpower' and have found that really inspiring also. Like you however I am yet to make a genuine and sustained effort at putting it into practice. I use the excuse of being so busy that I don't have the time to think, even though she says this is exactly the sort of thinking we should be challenging. If we could support each other that would be great as i really feel she has a great understanding of how and why people eat addictivly. I am really keen to follow this through. Any other Mumsnetters interested?
Yes, me please! I have also recently read the book, thought it made a lot of sense but haven't actually 'done' any of it. I really need to lose the 4 stone I've gained since having DS and stopping work but I don't want to resort to weightwatchers type things & complicated diet regimes. Been there, done that, felt miserable.
Hello raffandted!! Great to hear from someone else. Have also given up on diets (can't stand somebody else telling me what to do- my inner rebel is very strong!) and realise that the only way I will loose the odd 5 stone is to change the way I think and take responsibility for my own actions. Worry that I am still in that diet mentality by waiting until I am 'ready to start' when I should just be getting on with it. Oh well, it was never going to be easy, will just have to take it day by day. Would love to have some similar minded mn's to spur me along.
