In this BODY AWARENESS issue




• What is good fat vs what is bad fat?

• When we’re having one of those ‘body awareness –fat-days’ – could it possibly be impacting on your health?

• Why aren’t there eating disorders in Nudist villages?

• Is there a link between obesity and global warming?

• Who is creating your bad body awareness?

A special for EXPECTANT MOTHERS – a time when body awareness can be ultra strong:

• What is fat-gain and what is baby-gain?
• What about dieting during pregnancy?
• Your baby, chemicals and obesity.


Thanks to those of you who have let me know how much you benefited from the ‘One Magical Minute 4 Me’ course. If you didn’t get to sign up for the 2nd in the series – you might like to do that now...and this is especially true if you haven’t done it because you think you don’t have the time! (It’s like receiving a daily bunch of cyber-flowers every day)

And of course you're free to play it forward!

The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.(Albert Einstein)

We all have imperfections that we believe cause people to shun us. If only we had a prettier face or a better body, or more of this or less of that, people would like us better. Not so! People will only judge you for these things if they are the things by which you judge yourself.

When you feel good about yourself, it doesn’t occur to you that you’ll be rejected because of your shortcomings – and when you don’t act as if you’re rejectable, others won’t either.

If you’re in a place where body awareness is crowding in on you and believe you’re judged only by your exterior- what is much more true is that you haven’t been able to dig below your own surface to see the beautiful Sacred Being who doesn’t have to get more beautiful because your already are beautiful.

Did you know that you don’t get eating disorders in Nudist villages? If you’re curious about why that may be when you’d think it was a time that body awareness would reign supreme read this


These are also thought-provoking articles I thought you might like to read and add your comments to:

Are obesity and global warming linked? Actually, this got me a bit hot under the collar.

Who is creating your bad body awareness? Hmmm... makes you think!

I think prices for everything have gone up except for Mind over Fatter. It has stayed the same price for years now. So just to let you know that as from the 1st July the new price will be priced on a dollar amount of $99.00 plus postage and packaging of $7.50. This is a special offer only for programs mailed out within South African borders. I’ve just had a new batch of programmes printed and so this price will last for as long as the existing printed stock lasts. So if you still want it at the old price of R490.00 (plus postage and packaging) – now’s your last chance. Jump in before the end of June.

The price for any programmes mailed to addresses outside of South Africa is $199.00.

But here’s some really EXCITING NEWS! We have just had the most fabulous new mentoring system developed which will now form part of the package you get when you buy the Mind over Fatter package. It’s really an enormous step-up from our previous mentoring.

It comes with one limitation though - because of the one-on-one nature of it – I can only accept a limited number of people at any one time, and so not everyone will be able to sign up for it.


Have you ever wished you could work from home and earn a living online? I simply have to share this with you because it’s so exciting. I searched all over until I found a company that I think has simply the best online business tools out there… here’s a picture of me in my new office! Check out SBI – they’re amazing!
