    Hi All

    Some of you will know me as a long termer on Minimins and others won't know me at all.

    Anyways my story is this... overweight all my life... two years ago found Cambridge lost 4stone... put it all back on plus 3 stone... was forever trying to get back on Cambridge.

    My mother was talking about a book called 'The Secret' she even gave me a copy of it... I, of course, didn't read it!!! Over xmas she was giving me a few examples of how 'The Secret' had changed her life... that caught me interest big time!! She had bought it on Audio CD so I took a lend of that....

    Saturday 4 weeks ago I listened to the first CD (there are 4) and ever since then my life has changed..... some examples....

    - I have lost 11lb without exercising or without even thinking about it
    - I am a much happier, positive person... nothing is a problem...
    - I have gone from hiding away to accepting every invitation and getting out and enjoying myself

    They are only a couple... I cannot recommend this book/CD's enough to everyone.

    Obviously I cannot explain it totally in one post but if you have any questions about it at all, if I can answer them I will.

    I, obviously, have nothing to do with the writing or the production of 'The Secret' apart from I was lucky enough to come across it.... just in case anyone was wondering :)

    Since I have come across the cds I have given them to a couple of my friends and they are loving it to and also I have met a few people whose lives have been improved/changed by finding it.

    I hope that this information will be useful to a few of you on here :D

    Love

    Gen xx

    I've watched half of the dvd, it was very inspirational.
    Haven't put any of it into action as yet as need to get my ass into gear and sit down and watch it all the way through.

    I have a friend who follows the laws and lots of wonderful things have happened for him.

    Hi there

    That is brilliant for your friend... great to see other people being happy on it!!!

    To be honest I haven't had to put any of it into action, well apart from watching the way I speak to myself.. using 'i can' or 'i will' rather than i must or other non direct phrases!!!

    Good luck with the rest of the dvd... well worth another look I would imagine :)

    Gen xx

    Unfortunately Ireland are playing scotland in Dublin on the 23rd February... although I am not going to the match I will most certainly be in the city centre chasing a bit of skirt on the day :p:p:p:D:D

    Defo have a look at the link, I haven't looked at it myself to be honest... but have listened to the audio book and found it amazing!!! Its jus the book on CD... so I'm sure the book will do just the same thing!

    Keep me informed of how you are getting on

    Hi Gen watched the film but am a bit confused. When your feeling so down its hard to know how to put the ideas into practice, maybe I need to watch it over again .

    Hiya

    I haven't watched the film so I can't really relate to what you have watched.

    Maybe start with something tiny to see it in action... I started with a parking space and wanting, really wanting there to be one close to the door... and holy god there was one!!! I use it for being early for work... which I was never early for and now for the last 4 weeks I have been.

    I use it for looking presentable... ie putting make up on everyday... which I hadn't done in months and months... everyday now I put make up on without even thinking about it!!!

    Start small until you get the belief in it... but as I said I haven't watched the film so I don't know what its about but I can only assume it is the same or similar to the book/cd's.

    Gen xx

    Hi Gen I imagine the film to be the audio from the cds I would think or similar. But I see wot you mean about starting small, I did get goosebumps when I watched it so it must have struck a chord somewhere, will keep you posted, just want to feel a bit more positive you know x.
