My New book is out!

My new book is out!

The blurb on the back says this:

Have you ever realised you are obsessed with diets and weight loss? To the point where you wish you could just “Lighten up”?

LightenUp-front

Often, if you can accept that you don’t want to live on cabbage soup but rather lead a healthy, balanced life with occasional treats, then this is the book for you! The author has shared stories of old which will pull at your heart. She also has written hilariously funny descriptions of who looks back at her from the mirror.

Realising if she were to just ‘lighten up’ she might well in fact literally lighten up, Louise discovered a whole new life. Opening her up to a new pathway to help others into a healthier life, she also realised a new business.

Follow her journey from frustration to bikini wearing beach goer in this easy to read journal. Tips, tricks and even links will inspire you to lighten up too!

How to measure your weight loss success

Guess what?

Well,  over on my other, new blog,  it’s a lonely place! It’s taken off much better than i thought but I’d love to still share here with you guys if that’s ok.  Course it’s all ok,  you’re a friendly bunch.  Well,  if you want to come on over and share with me over there you will find loads of tips that you will love regarding health and weight loss.

My digestive health issues

My digestive health issues

 

Something I haven’t shared on this blog much before is the journey I have had into digestive health.  More and more and more people are asking me, “How did you get well?”

 

They want to know because their doctors are giving them prescription lists as long as their arms,  offering stoma bags and surgery or generally asking them to accept a less than normal life.

 

Do you suffer with any of these things?

IBS

IBD

Crohns

Colitis

Coeliac

 

There is a long, long list but these are just a few.  If you do,  or know someone who does,  read on.

 

My personal story starts years ago and is long enough to write in a book but I will give you the shortened version.  It may make your tummy flip.  

 

After a long spell of struggling with my weight (despite following many diets to the letter) I began to get very poorly.  To the point of being admitted to hospital for many tests.  

Drinking this fluid to empty out my entire digestive system was more than unpleasant to say the least.  Have you ever had that done?  Sit on the loo for about 5 hours.  Not nice. 

 

Well I was loosing blood constantly like a slow dripping tap and also (though I didn’t realise what it was) my intenstinal wall was coming away and passing out through my body.  That actually looked kind of like chicken fat.  So things were looking bleak.

 

After photos were taken of the intestines from an inside camera called a Colonoscopy (plus biopsies to check for any malignant cancer cells – scary) there was a diagnosis.

I had Ulcerative Colitis.  My colon was covered in Ulcers.  The photos were not pretty.

 

In a crazy way,  I was pleased to have a diagnosis.  You know when something really bugs you and you think, “I know something isn’t right with me.” Even though nothing is found.  When something is found it’s a huge sigh of relief.

Getting onto the medication the Dr gave me was scary.  I would be on these for life I had been told.  

 

When the test results from the biopsies came back I felt so nervous as who knows what they could be telling me.  As it turns out, there were no nasty cells in there which was  good news.  I think they would have taken part of the intestine away if there was.  That would have left me with a bag on my tummy and no more bikinis for me.

So,  I made a decision to say “sod it!” to my stretch marks that my pregnancy proudly gave me and start wearing bikinis again in the hope that I could show off my intact stomach.  Stretch marks and all.  

The biopsies also showed that it wasn’t Colitis but in fact Crohn’s disease instead.  The treatment was similar but it did mean I needed another camera down my throat.  Crohns isn’t always limited to affecting the intestines,  it can be anywhere from the mouth downwards.

 

That camera showed I had flattened villi.  These are the little finger type ‘bits’ that help absorb nutrients from the food.  As mine were damaged and broken off this meant that although I was overweight,  I was also under nourished. I couldn’t break down the food in the normal way either  so the undigested food would sit in the gut area and basically just feed the bad bacteria (including Candida but that’s for another post) and eventually these bacteria would turn into pathogens.  Which could lead to nasty cells. 

 

Onto the internet I went.   Reading and studying.  Reading and studying.

 

Reading and studying.  

 

One of my best friends had done the same unbeknown to me and despite her being one of the strongest women I know,  she broke down in tears and hugged me tightly when she saw me.

 

“What’s wrong?” I asked,  really concerned.

“It’s just all so so horrible.” She answered. 

 

By educating herself she had learned that this was a disease which could take over your life and it’s important to give it the respect it deserves.

 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

 

My research took me to a place of hope.

 

I had always believed that I was a person who couldn’t eat the same as everybody else.  I remember at work one day I was watching the manageress lady eat one thing after the other all day long.  She was stick thin,  she had a lovely figure.

“I couldn’t eat all that food I’d be like an elephant.” I said with envy.

“If you ate the right foods you could.”  She replied ignorantly.  What she had actually said was right.  But she hadn’t known that.

 

My research showed me that in fact you could massively control your health with the right diet.  I get right on my soap box here.

 

WHY?  Why doesn’t everyone know this?

 

Everyone should know this,  hence my new website has been born http://www.motiv-weight.co.uk to pass on the messages.

 

I have been on a big journey the past 6 years and my knowledge has grown massively.  When I now see somebody suffering like I did I have the links to send them to.  The books to suggest they read,  the DIETS I suggest they adapt to.

 

Yes,  that’s right,  you want to know how I got well and also lost 3 stone in weight?  It was all through correcting my health through diet.  I really want to help others by passing this information on,  in one place without having to search the internet as much as I did.

 

I also believe that if you are struggling with extra weight it will have a negative impact on your health regardless.  However,  it’s not always so straight forward to shift it.  Different things work for different people. 

 

Different things work for different people.

 

My website will encourage whatever diet works for you.  If you want to lose weight or if you want to get well again.  

I’m here to assure you this is definitely possible and honestly,  it’s the best thing I have ever done in my life.

 

My lovely Doctor and me used to argue.  To the point of tears.  He said,  “This illness needs medication,  you can’t change it by what you eat.”

“But it’s a digestive issue,  surely it will be affected by food.”

“No,  i’ve never seen that.”  He protested. 

 

After I used my new knowledge,  I followed everything to the letter and dropped 3 stone in weight in 4 months and also my health went through the roof.  I stopped bleeding within 3 DAYS.  I couldn’t believe my energy levels after just a few short weeks.  I had never realised that people were supposed to feel like this.  I had been born again in my 30s.  

 

Just a year later,  my doctor respectfully shook my hand and said

“I’ve never seen anyone turn this disease around to this level without using drugs or surgery.”

 

That speaks volumes.  

 

Help me on my quest to help others and please pass this on.  Follow my blogs and websites and facebook page.  I will share exactly how I have done it and point you to small investment books so you can save your own life too.Imagecrohns, colitis 

Life coaching – what is it?

What exactly is life coaching?


I totally have huge passion for this part of my job.  I’ve loved helping so many people.   Often they have felt confused about a situation.

Sometimes not motivated.

Very often simply need to thrash out a few ideas.

Business people have needed to be held accountable.


“Louise really helped me when I needed help with a big job decision.  I’m in a high profile position with work and didn’t feel I could air my worries to colleagues. Speaking it all through with Louise helped me make the right decision for my future and I’m really glad she was able to make it clear for me.” Rosie


“I was always so worried to go certain places at certain times.  I knew I was being silly.  But Lou made me realise this is my fear and it’s real to me and I suppose not silly after all.” Barbara


If you find you lie awake at night worrying about things you don’t need to worry about really or the answers keep arguing with themselves inside your head as you drive around each day, maybe Life Coaching if for you.


Showing you how to get motivated is a big step forward. 


Clearing the ‘spaghetti head’ as I call it is another.


Realising that everything doesn’t have to be perfectly in place.  Including you.  You can still make progress.


Answering your lifes purpose.  Your passions.  Making them your dream come true.


There are so many ways in which coaching can help you.  Once you feel clear on your direction there will be no stopping you.  What is stopping you right now?  You may even be able to answer your own issues just by reading this post.


Posts like this have been known to ignite a spark into your decision to make a change.  Why not!

Will it make your life seem better?  Go for it!
