The Flat Tummy Club

Hey guys this is just a quick one to tell you about this new book i have been reading which in turn has inspired me so much i am getting ready to walk an hour to work!
 in the cold and possible rain people!!? 
this book must be doing something rightt!

the blurb says:

Depressed by her expanding waistline, Kate Adams set out to lose weight - and keep it off for good. Six months later and over two stone lighter she decided to share her experiences and set up the Flat Tummy Club. 

Now you too can become a member by following the foolproof Flat Tummy Club Diet:

1. Do the Flat Tummy Inquisition to work out where exactly your spare tyre comes from.

2. Beat the bloat and shed up to 7lbs in a week with the 7-day Jump Start.

3. Swap in the Top 20 Flat Tummy Foods to keep you on the straight and narrow-waisted.

4. Keep your flat tummy forever with tips to help you maintain your willpower when stress, holidays and work start getting in the way.

I say:

I haven't finished this book so far as i have only read week 1 of the plan it includes but i cannot tell you how inspired i feel by the first chapters 
(not even including the plan its self) 
The author knows her stuff 
and better yet when i'm reading it i don't feel like its all sciency jargon i don't understand.
 She talks about the need to tailor make a diet and not to just blindly follow a crazy one. 
she also talks about looking at the root of our  unhealthy and unhappy habits. 
after reading the first half of this book i woke up this morning at 6:30 
(usually i drag myself out of bed at 8) 
and have decided that to save the bybane money 
(another of my resolutions was to get debt free by 24) 
I am going to set off an hour and 15 mins before work and walk all the way to work!

so call me crazy, call me weird but check out this book -
 i downloaded it to my kindle and LOVED IT <3

also there us a website if you guys want to look a bit further into it

also i forgot to mention yesterday but many of you found me anyways i am on MFP too

You go girl! If you want, join! It's all in Norwegian but as a member of the forum you can pretty much ask anything you might want answered by other people working out and there is a lot of motivation there!

Thanks for the mention of the book, thinking of ordering it on Amazon though I'd like to hear another update on it in a bit when you've been trying it out for a litle while. Sorry, I'd like you to be my test dummy :D

The fitnesspal thing looks interesting too, I'm trying to find a way to drop some pounds (About 20 ideally but thats just not happening) before my wedding day. I've lost about 10 plus thus far so fingers crossed.

Found your blog through another and am quite enjoying my visit here! This book sounds like it's fantastic - and am glad to have some motivation to create a "flatter tummy"!!

Walking all the way to work?! That book must be inspiring! I'm thinking I'm going to check this book out because 1. I've got a little extra pudge in the midsection since moving to France and 2. my birthday is around the corner so I'm thinking an Amazon shopping trip is in order.
Best of luck with your flatter tummy! :-)
