I saw a video of myself after doing a speech at a local wellness fair. It was very enlightening. Like a lot of people, I let the pounds creep up and just hadn't paid attention. I decided to take back control of my health.
I began the same regimen I encourage my clients to follow. Daily I used self hypnosis and visualization to see a healthier, slimmer me. I gave myself positive suggestions for healthy behavior (take time for me, get more sleep, eating habits, food choices, exercise, etc...)
I saw results quickly in how I looked and felt. Ultimately I lost 70 pounds!
You name it, most people have tried every diet out there! And with most diets, people lose weight for the first few weeks or months. Pounds come off. You feel fine. People tell you how great you look!
Then BOOM! A stressful situation happens and you experience a set back. Dinner becomes a whole chocolate cake the first night. What do you say... Aw it's just one night, I'll do better tomorrow because as the saying goes, "Tomorrow is another day!"
Yeah Right! Tomorrow gets here along with more stress, but instead of chocolate cake, you reach for a quart of your favorite ice cream. Because hey, life is short, let's eat dessert first!
Now you really feel guilty. All that hard work down the tubes. Your old habits have weaseled their way back into your life and the pounds start packing on once again.
What can you do? Start the diet cycle again. You may think, there's that diet Aunt Sally tried where she lost 50 pounds. Or, Kathy the co-worker went on the diet X and lost weight light a bandit. Both looked great for about 6 weeks.
Instead of trying the next diet fad, give hypnosis a try. Combined with a healthy eating regime and exercise routine, hypnosis can help you get on track and tackle those habit changes you want to be a slimmer, healthier you.
How does hypnosis help get your there?
Positive suggestions! As your hypnotist I give you suggestions to drink more water, eat healthy snacks such as fruits and vegetables, control portion size, take short walks outside instead of a short walk to the vending machine, increase exercise in general, and other suggestions based on your unique situation.
Creative Visualization uses the power of YOUR imagination! During the hypnosis session, I use mental imagery to help you see yourself as the slimmer, healthier person you want to be.
