    Only one of them was new:)

    All second hand and they are in perfect condition and only one looks like it was slightly used.

    Don't think I will ever buy brand new again if I can avoid it.

    I have saved about two thirds on what the same books would of cost me brand new here.

    So I am very happy :D

    Love Mini xxx

    Hi Pixie - I've read Gillian Riley's book some years back and recently re-read it last week, to help me stay on course (I'm on CD so don't have the benefit of the councilling sessions that you get with LL). I found her method very beneficially when I use it; it is different from the other books which use the 'eat when hungry and stop when full' method so it may not be for everyone. I also attended one of her courses last March which was excellent as it gets you thinking about why you want to stop overeating (apart from the obvious reason of losing weight which is what we tend to focus on).
    Would be very interested in what you think about the book.
    She also has a short version of the book called Beating Overeating - The Lazy person's guide!

    I wont shoot you honest!! Actually, I am glad you mentioned it, as I needed something to add to a book order I wanted to place for my sons 13th B/D, just to get free P&P!! (I just sooooo mean!!)

    Looking fwd to reading it, will let you know!

    Happy Dieting!

    Hi Pixie, I got the Eating Less book out of the library and have read the first few chapters - it's absolutely brilliant and I think it complements the LL stuff. I can see I'll have to buy it as I think I'll be re-reading it for a while - there's so much to think about. As I read I'm saying to myself, "Yes, yes, that's exactly it!" I'm really excited to have found this book - thanks for pointing me towards it!

    Hello lovelies,

    I dont know if anyone has ever read it, but 'Confessions of a Reformed Dieter' is a fab book - it is a true story by an aussie woman and i think her life changes are totally inspirational. Very easy to read - and really honest - i think it is a must!

    I've been after the gillian riley book for a couple of years. Scoured the local shops and libraries to no avail and don't want to order it off Amazon as I don't really want the family to see I've bought it and they are bound to open the box when it came. A touch embarrased about the subject.:eek:

    I asked about it on here once, but nobody had read it.

    I was just looking at this Eating Less: Say goodbye to overeating: sample chapter: introduction

    It's so 'in line' with what I'm doing and my thought processes. Would love to read the whole thing.

    I'll find a way :D Just wish it was in our local shops so I could sneak it in :D

    I've heard her quitting smoking one is fab too BTW

    Hi Karion Dieting,

    I have this book too, and it's probably one of the best I've read.

    Why don't you pop into your local WH Smiths with the details and ask them to order it in for you?
