Given up on dieting? Good for you…


I’m glad for you. That’s the first sensible thing you’ve done. I’ve been reading about some pretty awful diets on the market lately. So many so called experts are restricting foods to help you lose weight but when you think about it.. these foods… seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, meats, legumes, eggs etc all have specific nutrients in them which assist the body to maintain homestasis.. This means in basic terms a ‘healthy State’ ‘healthy body.’

Now, how can you maintain a healthy body if you are depriving it of important nutrients? Dieting and food restrictions put your body under extreme stress. The body is having to fight for survival. How can it heal and grow if there are no nutrients to assist in the healing and growth of new cells etc… When people are younger, their bodies are able to endure a little more than older people and when they keep dieting constantly they are removing years from their lives albeit a little more slowly but it is happening. It’s almost sinister in the way it creeps up and manifests itself into drastic health problems in later years.

Ill health, problems with pregnancy, seasonal flu and colds. The body has no stores of good health to enable it to fight these things. Homeostasis doesn’t exist. Did you know even lettuce has important nutrients? You might look at the humble lettuce and think it’s not important but it is! Fresh foods, highly nutritious and good to eat when prepared nicely can give you all the nutrients your body is screaming out for.

If you’re considering losing any weight at all, can I suggest you begin by getting rid of all the sugar in your diet. Normally I refuse to say the word diet because of the failures it conjures up, but when I do use it, I mean a normal eating pattern without food restrictions. If you counted all the sugar in the foods and drinks you consumed in a day you might be very surprised at the amount you are consuming and those simple carbohydrates which has your body experiencing highs and lows all throughout the day. Yuk! It’s no wonder people get cranky. They need a constant sugar fix. Begin doing it now and see how much better you feel. Even if you swapped 2 cups of sugar free drinks in a day it would make a difference.

I just read an article about a mother who embarrassed her overweight child into losing weight. She denied the child a main meal too.. Is that crazy or what? How can that child flourish with food restrictions? I wondered about her mental state as well. What baggage is this little child going to carry around with her after that? Makes me so mad.

I have kids on Marilyn’s Plan now and they love it. Want to know why? Becasue they get to eat normal healthy food. They don’t have to go without and no one even knows they are trying to lose weight. Kids can be so cruel to obese children. Their bullying and taunts are soul destroying. Kids can lose weight and learn how food makes them overweight and how to be careful of their food choices. Maintaining their weight is easy for them as well and all the kids who have been on this Plan love it. For the cook in the house, you don’t need to cook anything different for the obese child which makes life a lot easier. You can all eat the same food. Want to know how??? Well, go to the website and get the book. I have to admit it is a good little read with some humour which we badly need these days.

One more thing… If your child can be assisted to learn about food and can get back to eating good healthy food then teach them how to cook. There will come a day when they will be on their own and I’m sure you would like to know they will be able to look after themselves.

Don’t let it go!


Sometimes I wonder if it’s all worth it. I mean, watching my emails for sales and answering peoples queries etc but I really do enjoy it. I know I haven’t blogged for a few days but life has been so busy. Even the date for completing my next book is on hold. Can’t seem to find the time but I think I have everything ready now.

Life can get so busy we lose track of where we are and what our goals are don’t we? I try to at least put my goals into ‘long term’ and ‘get it done now!’ It works when I make a list and get it done. Sometimes I just want to get off this computer and let it go…
I need space too. I need to get away from it all and take a few days off but every day I get up and put on an item of clothing and it fits as it should without having to say to myself..’I’m too fat to wear it’ I get excited all over again and I do keep going.

I do it for you. I know you have tried so many diets and fads etc to lose your weight but answer one question??? Have they worked and have you kept your goal weight for more than two years??? If you haven’t then you are on the wrong track. How many more diets are you going to pay for? How many nights are you going to go to bed hungry and miserable? How long are you going to be thinking about food before you give up and eat again?

Been there and done that. Yep! I have. I know where you’re coming from. Well, now I can teach you how to do it and once you have this fabulous concept under your belt you will know it will work for you and you will be able to do it. It’s a relief to know when you read something which makes so much sense that you know you will be able to do it. Oh… it’s so exciting. It keeps me going just thinking about it so don’t hesitate. Go and do it now for yourself, for your family and even your pets if they are overweight. And where can you get a weight loss Plan which fits in with people and pets??? Nowhere I know, except my book. Copy and paste this into your browser

I remember last week I was on facebook telling everyone I was registered with the ACCC which is the ‘Australian Competitions and Consumer Commission’ They are linked to ‘scam watch’ etc and their job is to protect the public and businesses from scammers. Well, I forgot it was removed from my website when my web developer did a revamp of the site. It’s back on there again and I am registered with them too. See the bottom of the ‘Home Page’
I requested it so I could show everyone it is for real and not a scam. There is a dinky di book and a bloody marvelous weight loss Plan so get to it. That’s it for me. Have to go and prepare for a busy weekend.
Love to all.

Felt like a sausage roll


Had to go to my workplace today to do my mandatory manual Handling and CPR updates to maintain my Nursing Registration. Each year we have to do this and all the modules we do are allowed a point or two. So in all we have to aquire 20 points to be able to keep working and keep our registration.

I got a park a couple of streets away and walked briskly to the venue, signed in and met another RN who I bonded with nicely. It’s always nice to meet someone and click at the first meeting. We laughed and giggled the way through (at the appropriate times of course) not when the lecturer is speaking.

I got picked by the lecturer in the manual handling practical because I was the thinnest one there and it wasn’t hard to move me around the bed or the floor. So I was chuffed at this. hehehehe! By the time I had finished I felt so dirty. I’m home now and clean. A good day and all updates done. Phone ringing so have to go.
Bye for now. xxx

What makes my Plan so good? “It’s a quirky fun read, and it works”


I was once asked what made my Plan for weight loss so unique and my reply was to say…
“It’s a pretty normal way to eat but I have manipulated all the good things we know about food.”

When you read the book you will know it does work and you will be able to do it. Truly! After you’ve read it you will realise it does work. There is no doubt. It’s proven method is helping overweight people all over the world and I’m so excited to be able to have the opportunity to present it to you in an easy to read, quirky, Aussie book.

Have you ever read anything to do with weight loss given the title of quirky? I bet you haven’t. But why should weight loss be boring and difficult. Ha! It’s not boring or difficult doing it my way. It’s fun, it’s healthy and it’s even fast if that is what you want… Don’t get me wrong… The Plan is not quirky but the way I wrote it is. So it’s enjoyable and fun to read..

Every day I wake up and put on my skinny girl jeans or a little dress I am in awe of this Plan and how easy it is.
You may look at my website and think all the celebrities on there are paid to be there but no, they are not. Some of these lovely people are friends, some are friends as a result of them having my book but they all have one thing in common.
They like the Plan. I don’t need to pay celebrities to endorse my book and I think it’s totally wrong to do it.
It’s misleading to say the least. Won’t say anymore except that my Plan is honest and so am I. Email me and ask me something or better still.. call me. My number is on the website on the contact page… Either me or my husband will answer the phone…if we’re awake that is…lol

Oh my aching Latisimus Dorsi


I was fortunate enough to secure 4 days work this last week with one day off in the middle for my mum’s birthday. How wonderful was that, I thought to myself. I honestly do worry though because every time I do more than 2 days work I lose so much weight I look skinny. We RN’s in Aged Care work like dogs. It’s hard and fast and certainly not for the faint hearted.

Ok, so the first 2 days went smoothly. The shifts were very busy but not tiringly so and I was not too worn out. I then celebrated my mum’s birthday the next day with a nice lunch at a popular little eatery where I was surprised was full of elderly people out for lunch and having a wondeful time. It was nice for a change to see a dining room full of elderly people being able to choose what they wanted to eat and not have to have someone shovelling food into their mouths without letting them even swallow! I felt a sense of warmth seeping into my every pore to see it.

But let’s get back to the aching Latisimus Dorsi….. My back! Because I eat like I do (according to Marilyn’s Plan for Weight Loss) I have to be careful not to do too much hard yakka and I have to watch my trousers too. I have now put elastic in the waist of my work trousers to keep them from falling off again because the weight falls off me and the waist band of my trousers can’t keep up so I let my tummy out to give the waist band something to sit on so it doesn’t fall down. That is sooooo wrong!

We do Manual Handling training every year as part of our registration and part of that is to ensure we protect our back by holding the stomach taught! This ensures the muscles of the abdomen support our backs and we don’t bend over but squat… hence the trousers (who wants to look up my skirt?). Well, letting my tummy out doesn’t support my abdominal muscles which in turn puts me at risk of back injury. So I do another 2 days work and as I go I am allowing my abdominal muscles out as I go because my pants are getting too loose, and then on the weekend I spend the day cleaning up the mess my family have made in the house and now I’m pooped!

My back has an annoying ache and I’m sooooo cross with myself. I am sick of having to replace the elastic in the waist band of the trousers so now I am going to have to go shopping to buy another pair. This you may think is an easy thing to do but I want and need trousers which look professional, don’t come to the hips allowing my undies to be seen, and are baggy enough in the legs and bum so there is no shape to my body. I do not dress for fashion. I dress for my Profession and to keep that modest, unsexy look. I know if I go to a hospital I want someone to look after me who doesn’t look like a tramp but exhudes professionalism, cleanliness and total discretion in all things.

I could go on but I have had my whinge for the day. If Florence Nightingale were alive today and saw the way Nurses dressed and behaved she would be very angry indeed. Now I will rest and repair! Movies are on and if I don’t get called to any emergency I will remain on the lounge all day. I feel better already.
I would also like to get a few comments from this post too if you wouldn’t mind.

1. What are you looking for in a nurse?

2. What do you expect of them?

3. How do you expect them to dress and behave?

4. Have you had any bad experiences with Nurses?

ebook now $3.50. Yahooooo!


Yep! That’s right. I dropped the price of the ebook to $3.50. The reason I did this is because there are so many people who just cannot lose weight and I would go as far as saying they have given up. besides that, the way the economy is heading, I don’t think anyone really wants to spend too much on weight loss products. Well you can take it easy now because I have taken everything we know about food and nutrition and added a few things you didn’t know and came up with this….and it works.

The book

I love it so much because there is no more silly dieting or starving yourself. No more grumpy bums! You will be able to manage it so easily…
Love and hugs to all.
