I hope that a few of you spend some time and read through a few of these... There are real pearls of wisdom in here and reading through one or two each time I log in, honestly lifts my spirits and gets any negative thoughts far out of my mind!

Happy losing!!

I have completed Cohens in 2009 (57kg) and have reached 60 as maintenance. I love the quote given here by ''Yoda"
It is so true that other peoples negativity is so detrimental in all spheres of life, and it requires a certain strength to have the mind power of continual positive thought. For this reason, I value the ability to visit the forum ever so often!
Forever a proud 'Cohenite'

My NYF Diary
Default Re: This forum has hidden gems

Wow - well, a WHOLE lot of water has passed under THIS particular bridge, hasn't it?

I have been AWOL for some time, but am back (sort of) for a wee while. This morning, an old friend typed some of her usual sage words, which put a big dopey grin on my face as I realised just how right she was. You know the kind of dopey grin that says "Of course - why didn't I think of that?"

And what were those words?

My new job involves sitting. And making phone calls. But mainly, just sitting.

By the end of each day my legs feel as if I have forgotten them! But more importantly, over the past 11 weeks I have lost 14.6 kilos of fat, with no deliberate exercise and all the while working in a sedentary job!


So donít let anyone tell you that you canít lose weight without punishing yourself, running on treadmills, paying expensive gym fees, burning up precious family and personal time in the pursuit of losing a few ounces through sweat and pain.

.................................................. ....

This Program challenges what we think we know about weight loss and weight management. This Program explodes myths that we take for granted as truth, yet here we are, losing weight while just minding our own business!
Where you see ........... that means a whole bunch of other good stuff has been edited out to leave a "teaser" that has you click on the link to read the rest. Here's the link:-

Of course, most of you today will have already read Kristine's Diary - this entry is more for those "coming behind" who may not know Kristine, but will hopefully find this GEMS thread at some stage. Hence, we will bring K's diary to THEM !!!

Rock on Kristine.. and the rest of you too.

Lunch on Kristine's words, and realise just how wrong most of the world has got this "exercise vs weight" thing. And how wrong it is for the Biggest Loser TV program to have grossly over-weight people putting their skeletal structures at risk doing exercises that are best suited for people who are not carrying excess weight.

Anyway, certainly while on Plan, DO NOT exercise any more than you used to (even if you FEEL lighter and are bouncing off walls) as you aren't eating enough to sustain exercise as well as your core body. Leave the exercise until you are DONE with the Plan and can add a bit more carbs to give you extra energy.

Of course, once you are at goal weight, have completed Refeed, and are now eating enough to handle it, by all means DO join a gym or whatever. I would think some of those Zumba classes would get the old heart pumping, and it would seem like fun rather than a chore too, wouldn't it?

Just a big happy hushpuppy
I haven't "done" Cohens - Asy knows me from way back - she invited me to "take a look" here - I did, loved it, and stayed...
And me? I'm a tall skinny bloke (BMI ~23) and have been this way forever, so I haven't faced (weight-wise) what you all have !!
