It Works...

Incredible stories from people who have started or completed the Fat Chance! Workbook

"I have had many attempts at losing weight and getting fit but they all failed and I ended up back where I started and more. The TV ad was what got me started. When I realised that the book contained a 12 week programme and was interactive, I thought, "Yes, this is what could just work for me". I was not in a good place emotionally and had put on a lot of extra weight because I didn't seem to want to help myself. I had given up. I was feeling sorry for myself. Then the idea that we should eat like a slim person just made sense me.
I am a narrative therapist and part of narrative therapy is to tap into the "untold" story. There was a story about me that was not being told, a story of energy, good skin, a slim figure and a kind gentle, passionate person who showed a keen interest in everything. That person was lost in rolls of fat and helplessness.
I am now on week three and I have lost over 6 kgs.When I feel tempted to eat, I just remind myself of my goal of 77 kgs and ask myself, "Why do you want to eat? Are you really hungry or just sad or angry?"
I am loving the book and the sensible and long term approach to changing myself. I am going to sign up for the Auckland ½ marathon on November.
Thank you so much for this wonderful gift of life."

"Well I achieved my goal, in fact I went from 85.5kg down to 64.5, a loss of 21kgs in 11 months with many thanks to you and your book! It has been life changing! "
