Posted on 6th November 2010 in Blog category.

Someone asked me this the other day and I have been sitting here wracking my brain as to the perfect answer…. Firstly there is no such thing as perfect – even when we think there might be it is always an illusion – however you may not be interested in my pop philosophy so I… Read More

Are you Ready for Winter?

Posted on 22nd September 2010 in Blog category.

At the risk of sounding a bit smug I wanted to let you know it is 32degrees and beautiful here at our weight loss boot camp in France today. However summer seems to be well and truly over in the UK and Autumn seems to have taken up residence… the nights are already drawing in,… Read More

Are you Resentful?

Posted on 14th June 2010 in Blog category.

I know from my own experience over many, many years that being overweight can leave you feeling miserable, angry and even… resentful. Worse, this anger and resentment we often push onto other people, not only punishing them for how we are and how we feel, but also, over time, sometimes even blaming them for it…. Read More

Are You Stuck In A Rut?

Posted on 30th May 2010 in Blog category.

An interesting observation made by psychologists is that most of us are stuck at the same level of happiness and satisfaction in our lives regardless of what’s going on around us or the circumstances we find ourselves in. And if you think about it, you’ll see it’s true. I bet every woman has at one time… Read More

Be kind to yourself

One of the lessons I took a long time to learn (but which, fortunately, you can learn from me now without having to make all the mistakes I made or take so long to learn it), is our ultimate success with our weight-loss goals stems from our mindset. Until this vital foundation is absolutely rock… Read More

With a little help from our friends…

Posted on 20th May 2010 in Blog category.

Change is always difficult. And the commitment to change by losing weight and leading a healthier, happier life is no exception. Because not only do you know there’s quite some work, time and distance between where you are now and where you want to be in the future – and I know that can be… Read More

A Lesson We Can Learn from the Election

Posted on 16th May 2010 in Blog category.

What has a weight loss boot camp got to do with elections you ask? Wel….Now the furore has died down and the dust has settled, I think it’s worth looking at a very important lesson we can learn from last week’s General Election. As you’ll know the vote was indecisive and no party had an… Read More

Posted on 10th May 2010 in Blog category.

Unless you’ve been hiding inside for the past few weeks, you’ll notice the days are getting longer and the sunshine that little bit warmer. And pretty soon, volcanoes permitting, a good proportion of us are hoping to be jetting off on our Summer holidays to enjoy the sea, sun and sand. So. Are you prepared?… Read More

Is Alcohol the Forbidden Fruit?

Posted on 22nd April 2010 in Blog category.

This is one of the most common questions I get at our weight loss boot camp, especially at this time of year as the summer season approaches. And the short, simple answer is “no”. As you’ll probably be aware, with the NuBeginnings Weight Loss Programme, there’s no such thing as “forbidden” foods, because no food… Read More

You Can’t Pick and Choose

Posted on 7th April 2010 in Blog category.

This is something we go over a great deal at our weight loss boot camp. Contrary to popular belief and opinion, and irritating as I know it is… you can’t spot-reduce fat. By this I mean if you, say, have fat on your tummy you want to remove there’s no point in doing sit-ups and… Read More

Are You Drinking Enough?

Posted on 16th March 2010 in Celebrities category.

At NuBeginnings weight loss boot camp we are slightly obsessed by water. Everyone knows water is essential for life. But what most people don’t know is: 1.
