Something new…

With my ongoing frustrations at making no progress with the WeightWatchers diet plans this time round (I did lose around 3 stone last time I used the scheme, but put it all back on again – so I’m not saying it won’t work for you) I am now giving a new weight-loss system a try – in this case Paul McKenna’s I Can Make You Thin (Book and CD) and the accompanying I Can Make You Thin 90-Day Success Journal.

This is far less about what I’m allowed to eat, and counting calories, or scoring food up to a daily limit – it basically follows a series of “rules” about eating – which hopefully I’m ready to start following.

The biggest difference in what I’ve read and seen so far is that this helps you deal with the “comfort/depression/boredom” type of eating, where you are eating out of habit, or for the comfort “emotion” that food gives through having low self-esteem, rather than because your body actually needs the fuel.

We’ll see… (yes, I’m a sceptic, but I’m giving it a try)  I think the hardest part is going to be dealing with other people as my eating patterns should change, and “eat what you want when you want” could be a problem at work – but I’ll give it a try.
