I am on the last few days of this Journal and when I get to the end I am going to start it all over again. I found the inspirational pieces Paul has included so inspiring and helpful along the journey to getting thin. Aged 59 and still dreaming of losing weight - my husband bought me this book and I thought I'd give it a try but also bought the main book with the CD.

After a couple of weeks, I realised that I no longer cared about how thin I did or didn't get, I would keep following Paul's plan because I felt so much better than I had in years. I am losing weight very slowly (which I think is the best way) just around 1 to 2lb at each 15day interval but it is consistent (10lb loss so far). There are no up and down times and, in my case, I am enjoying my food more than I can ever remember. I was someone who never ate between meals, had no snacks in my desk. Now, for the first time ever, I have snacks of different types in my desk that I can choose from when I get hungry, but that can just stay there when I am not. At last I can relax about food. I just want to say 'Thank you Paul McKenna, you have made an incredible difference to my life'.

I'm really enjoying using this book: I love McKenna's style and the day-by-day "check-in" approach is keeping me going. Each of the 90 days has a double-page spread with a motivational message and/or exercise, and space for you to record your achievements in terms of following the system. I like the fact that there isn't a space for noting "what I FAILED to do today" - as Paul says, you get more of whatever you focus on, so this book emphasises the positive!
A couple of points (especially in view of the first customer review on this website): this book was only published a couple of weeks ago, and as it's a 90 day journal, nobody - including me - can be in a position to make a final judgment on whether it works yet (unless they somehow got hold of a preview copy)! The system is dramatic in terms of turning your attitudes around and getting results, but it's not a crash diet or a quick fix - it's for life. So give it time.
Also, you really do need "I Can Make You Thin" as well - it describes Paul's weight-loss system in much more detail, and includes the wonderfully indulgent mind-programming CD Paul refers to each day. I have been using the system from "I Can Make You Thin" for 5 months and have lost a stone easily (see my rave reviews under the other book!). I did keep my own diary during this time, but this new book has given me a really helpful boost and helped me re-focus after Christmas.
One final thing: I don't believe McKenna ever says "just say no" in the book - he is very anti the idea of willpower, and always phrases things in a positive way that helps you feel really good about yourself. The only thing he insists you say "no" to is low-fat, cardboard-tasting diet food (except he's not quite as polite as that about it)!

I bought the original book and then got this after attending one of the Weight Loss seminars a few weeks ago. I can honestly say I have never felt better than I do now. I started this at the beginning of July, the day after the seminar and I feel amazing. I fully admit I was sceptical as anything, but now I just feel happy and relaxed! I don't worry about what to eat, I even find that the relxation techniques help with work-related stress etc. I don't step on the scales everyday looking to see if it's gone horribly wrong, eating out doesn't fill me with dread. Buy this and the original book and you'll never look back. If you can make it to the seminar as well it will help with the rest, even though the price looks a lot it's the best money ever spent. I can't encourage you do to this enough! If you've started it too, good luck to you!

Being freed from low fat, low GI, low carb, low sugar tyranny is truly liberating - buy it.

I have owned the original ICMYT book for about a year now, and find that the techniques do work if you do them regularly and are consistent. However, this was my biggest problem - not staying focused. That's where this Journal comes in handy - if you're having to consult and write in it every day, you'll find the techniques become second nature.

Journaling has been shown to be as much a part of effective weight loss as eating right and getting more exercise. The system itself is pure common sense - don't overeat, get off your butt - but common sense doesn't help you address why overeating happens, reduce/eliminate cravings or motivate you to exercise. In addition, you'll recondition your mind to enjoy whatever is put in front of you, no guilt trip.

This book is a great companion but does not work as a standalone. Spend the money and buy both this and the original together if you don't already have the ICMYT book. If you don't think it's value for money, check out the price of the Paul McKenna weight-loss seminar... if you don't have a spare few hundred lying around, the books are just as good!

I brought this book as a companion to Pauls weight loss system audio set and the original book `I can make you thin' (I highly recommend these also) to lose some weight, get out of bad eating habits and to feel happy with my shape. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Each day of this diary you get a very helpful exercise to do to help you build a better relationship with your body and great tips help you on this journey. In addition you are able to check off which parts of the program you carried out during the day (very helpful) which helps you keep on track. You are also asked to write down a positive thing you have noticed each day and what you're looking forward to the next day (really helps to motivate you, and after a few days focusing on the positives- you get positive results!). I found the journal especially helpful on those days that things don't go according to plan. It helps you to reflect on this, brings you back to now and helps to you to keep up the new habits until they become second nature (which they do!)

Generally Paul's weight loss system which this journal is based on is brilliant. It has helped me to break old eating habits (e.g. over eating and not stopping when full, eating unconsciously, eating quickly, and eating for other reasons than actual physical hunger). In addition it is NOT a diet, and it has changed the way I think about food. On diets I have tried in the past, the minute a food is forbidden you just want it even more! With this system you can eat what you like as long as you follow the golden rules. At first it feels strange to be able to eat what you want and still lose weight. It doesn't have to be hard like diets have brain washed us into believing.
