      Julz, thank you so much for the video, thanks to you I am back on track to make May mine!!

      I’m not gonna lie, after sticking to the plan last week and only losing 3lbs in my first week I was seriously deflated yesterday. So much so that I ate myself, my emotions and the kitchen sink. I was so upset doing it and felt sick but could not stop myself ๐Ÿ™ your day one video reminded me that I’m the only one that can do this for me and I CAN do it. I am in control of my weight loss not my emotions and 1 day at a time I can make May my month!!!

      Hi All, this challenge is just what I need. I had resolved to “begin again” in May, so the timing is perfect. This is my 3rd year to try to diet…I start and stop, and am now so fed up with myself because I know I can do better. Your posts on New You are encouraging, and I have to say, this time I believe I will do it. I am also very conscious of my health…I have Hypertension and am on medication for it. I hate taking medication, and have always maintained prevention is better than cure, but I have not been true to myself. My GP says I can drop the meds when I drop the weight. Also, I am tired wearing stretch jeans and size 14-16 clothes. I have several really gorgeous dresses that I long to fit into, but because I can’t, I am also looking at fabulous shoes that I can’t wear because they go with the dresses…I am almost a perfectionist, but not quite…it’s just that my lumpy jelly bits do not work any justice for the dresses, and I am honestly embarrassed with my lack of shape. I also hate my husband touching me right now, He would lose his hand on my tummy! UUuugh! Anyway, I feel fantastic, had one choco shake for Brekkie, drank 2 litres H2o before 1200, and walked 8.35km this am before work. Starting at 75kg…watch this space… And every success to all on this endeavour. LC

        Hi Lorraine, Third time lucky as they say!! And a nice wardrobe is one of the best motivators!! Stick with it and you could be wearing one of those lovely dresses in your wardrobe!! You should plan a night out that you can wear your dress and shoes!!

        Well done with the walking too!! You are going to KILL IT!!!

        Love your story and I wish you every success.

        Love,

          Thanks Julz, your video support is spot on. In my weak moments I go to your videos or listen to you dishin out support…and your accent is so cute. Keep up the great work..do you know what a great help and support you are in all of this?? REALLY…Brill:-))))

      • Author gravatar

        Hello Lorraine, I know how you feel,I felt the same way, what I found was, you must think of your self as thinner, act as if your thinner, believe that you are thinner, its what to say when you talk to youself. Your mind is far more powerful than any craving. Just remember that there is only one you on this planet and you are in charge on you. Tell your subconcience over and over and you will be amazed that you will believe it and the diet will be so much easier. Good Luck. Lillian

      Weighed in this morn and was so disappointed with my loss of only 1 lb. I’ve no one to blame but myself cause i picked at the kids tea on more than 1 occassion last week, but today is the 1st day of summer and since Jan i’ve been saying i’m not having another fat summer.

      This challange really couldn’t have come at a better time. Its brilliant.
      As the saying goes ” There’s no such thing as bad weather when you have good rain clothes” so everyone wrap up well with your rain jackets and get out walking.
      This summer will be our skinny summer.

      If we want it bad enough we will succeed. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Author gravatar

        Good luck with the challenge Martina!! TIME FOR A SLIM SUMMER FOR YOU!! Take ti day by day and by July you will feel AMAZING…

        Enjoy your walking, and enjoy your weight loss journey!!

        You are a star!!

        Love,

      Hi everyone, just sat down with my shake to watch day 1 of the May challenge video. Before I sat down I was considering having a little cheat but made up my shake and watched the video and theres no way I’m giving up. I’ve gone from 4 packs a day down to 3 for this and so far so good.

      I am hoping (no I will lose) to lose 14lbs this month, this will put me on track for my ultimate goal.

      Julz you are so inspirational with your motivational talks I/we couldn’t do it without you.

      Now off to sign up for the secret slimmers as I haven’t done anything like this before it’s a first for me.

      Bring on day two I’m ready!!

      Good Luck everyone.

      • Author gravatar

        Hi Moira!! Glad you didnt cheat!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        You will hit your target if you just follow the 5 steps everyday and take it day at a time!!!

        I am so touched by your comments, it really means so much to me!!!

        Can’t wait to get to know you in secret slimmers, you will love it in there, let me know if you ever need any help.

        Love,

      Sorry very late posting!! For my first day of the May challenge I took my first driving lesson in three years, something I’ve been inspired to do since starting new you. Losing weight has inspired me to get out there and see the world!! To inspire others I also uploaded an after photo that I’d taken. The response from everyone was fantastic and pushed me further!!

    • Author gravatar

      I have been on the plan 1 week and have lost 11lbs I just can’t believe it. I was a binge eater I found the plan very easy as I didn’t have to think about food and needed a kick start to get me motivated. I intend doing the 21 days to change my old habits. I am back walking, drinking 4 liters of water a day and not thinking about what I can shove into my mouth next . For the first time in my life I feel free of food. I did my work sheets and watched the videos every day to get me motivated and it worked I’m starting week 2 will let you know how I get on.

      Julz, I am on day 1, so listened to the day 1 video this morning. I think it mat have gotten through to me. I want to have a successful day, but I always feel like this until about 3pm, like yesterday the wet weather gave me an excuse to eat badly. I have to take control now. My weak points each day are 3pm and 6pm and then the whole evening. I am going to read your website, blogs etc. at these times.
      Thanks for the insspiration, Edel.

      • Author gravatar

        Hi Edel!! You CAN do this!! Great idea to read the blog, as this will keep you focused on sticking to your goals, and stop you thinking about food. Watch the day 2 video as well as we are focusing on getting REALLY CLEAR ON YOUR WHY, and when your WHY is big it means it is easier to stay on course!!

        Keep going honey, and get involved with our amazing community who will lift and inspire you at any time of the day.

        Love,

      Julz, I know its day 2 but Im just catching up on your day 1 video. Was sitting on the coach and hubby came in with a huge bar of Milka and started munching, I thanked him for his support!!! we had a good laugh he didnt even realise what he was doing and best thing ever it did nothing for me, didnt bother be an iota, couldnt have said that 3 weeks ago I would have been begging him to go out and buy me a bar. Also looking at the dog beside me and going to head out for a walk with him after I listen to day 2, as you say even a short walk is better than sitting on the couch. Thanks soo much love your accent, my dad was from the north so it reminds me of him which is always nice x

        Awwww Margaret xox Glad you like the video, it is always hard to hear your own voice! So I am glad you and understand me and that my accent brings good memories to you. Glad that you are settling into the diet and finding it easy, it amazing what a few weeks can do to your mindset and habits, they do say it takes 21 days to change a habit and I definitely think that is true! Good luck with the rest of your journey, and I hope to see you post here every day.

        Much Love,
