    Hi everyone, I think ill start a little diary in here, well more a record of how Im doing because Im not great at keeping diaries. So a little introduction. My name is Anne-Marie and I joined here a little over a year ago but then became pregnant so didnt stick around too much. Well now I am back to lose all this baby weight. I was doing weight watchers but wasnt following the diet so was basically wasting money. I have read Marissa Peer's book and am following her principals basically - but Im not inspired the way I was when I first read it over a year ago even thought I agree with everything she says I just dont have the same fierce enthusiasm I did the first time. However I am determined to be slim so here goes maybe the enthusiasm will come in a day or two. Im looking forward to getting to know you all.

    What are the principles of Marissa Peer's book? Yeah, little point on coming here while prego and gaining every day (or at least that was my problem lol). I would laugh as the scale would increase almost every single day, til I had gained 70 lbs! Luckily 35 lbs slid off within 2 weeks (that includes the actual baby weight and fluids of course hehe). But yeah, I'm STILL trying to rid myself of the rest of the "baby weight" (3 yrs later lol). Best wishes to you!

    Hi ace, well basically she kinda hypnotises you and convinces to avoid flour, wheat, dairy and bad carbs. Its a really good book I would recommend it but Im just finding it hard to get back in the swing of things. Well part of the problem is that for a full week I ate only fruit veg and lean protein and I managed to lose 1 pound only and Im really disheartened but trying to not let it affect me - I have a long way to go so I cant falter at ever little hurdle!

    Well I went home to my parents house and totally made a pig of myself. There is something about my home house that makes me eat all around me - I dont know what it is - Im sure if I had counselling it would come out as I also had an eating disorder when I lived at home, but for the most part I was very happy there. Anyhoo my will power just goes out the window and then it takes me a while to get back on track. So official WI tomorrow - hope I havent ruined the hard work! But coming on here has helped - I have just put both my babies down for a nap and am going to have a cuppa - im v v v tired, not much sleep last night and I really want to use my treadmill tonight but hubbie isnt home till late so ill have to wait until the babes are in bed - and by then Im shattered!

    Well I am going to Marisa's seminar in London on sept 26 th and I am so excited - I think this will be the end of all my issues with food and over eating. Only problem is a little bit of me wants to eat junk now - kinda of a farewell - but if I have 'one last pig out' lasting six weeks ill gain a bloody stone - so have to be very strong, think I might try to just eat healthy and sensible for a few weeks and give Marisa's programme a break until the seminar so it is all new and exciting a fresh when I do go. My brother in law had a minor stroke last night - he is only 32 and fit and healthy, that has scared the bejaysis out of me to lose this weight though, so no more arsing - I will be thin!!

    That sounds interesting, about the seminar, sorry to hear about your brother-in-law, that's awful, a stroke at such a young age, I hope he doesn't suffer any lasting damage

    Thanks yo yo - he is fine now doesn't look like he will have any remaining weakness but he needs lots of tests to see why it happened - he is a heavy smoker though, but not overweight.
    Marisa's book is excellent you should try it - I just feel i need an extra kick in the you know what to get me going since I had my son.

    Im really struggling - but I want to feel fitter and slimmer sooooo much why can I not just stop eating crap - I think I have a major carb and chocolate addiction, I need to go cold turkey I think, I also need to throw out my scales (but I love them ) but it does seem if I lose weight I fall by the wayside and if I gain weight I fall by the wayside too - I cant win. Right that is it Ill weigh in on the 1st of every month only and measure my waist weekly. IM STARTING RIGHT NOW - NO JUNK, NO BREAD, NO CEREAL!! Ill eat fruit, veg, protein and small amounts of brown rice or porridge.

    Well Im back from my hols and I had a lovely time but I ate loads of crap!! But I have started today and done really well - I didnt weigh myself, I didnt need to see the gain TBH and I plan not to weigh myself until christmas - this is healthy eating for life not a diet.

    Im really enjoying this eating plan now - not weighing takes the pressure off big time and I keep visualising myself in a lovely dress on christmas day to keep me motivated.

    Hang in there Annie!! I have a toddler too so I hear ya. My downfall is bread, cheese, and carbs! I have loads of weight to lose, but doing mini goals. Just keep the faith, cos deep down it's who you are inside fighting to be free of all these addictions!
    A happier you is just down the road if you stay strong! :)
