Hi, Hypnosis Friends!
Today I want to share a weight loss success story. There are many, many client success stories on my Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP website of all varieties (over 180 at last count), and many, many weight loss success stories in particular.
This one is different. This one is me.
I have a lot of new readers to my blog and I’d like to share my story again. One of the things that makes me different from other hypnotists in the area is my confidence, my absolute knowing that hypnosis works to change anything. That includes habits, health, energy, body size and shape. How do I know? I live that success.
That picture up above is me, taken today. It’s not vanity to do my “selfies,” it’s how I measure weight loss success. I don’t get on the scale. I measure success by how I feel and how I look. How my clothes fit me. I’m wearing clothes half the size. I measure success by how much energy I have, walking, climbing stairs, and so on. I especially like to compare my face to how I used to look, several years ago, before I started using hypnosis & NLP for weight loss. Here is a pic of my face from 2005:
Do I look different to you?
I grew up as a child with weight issues and most of my adult life as well. I know the ins and outs of unhealthy habits and negative thinking, and what drives changes in weight, both up and down. I know about diets of all varieties, starvation and otherwise. And because I am so intimately conversant in all this, I can help you! I KNOW how to lose weight and keep it off for years! I’m doing it. And I know how to help you to be successful as well.
How do we do this with Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy®? When I work one on one with my hypnosis weight loss clients, we address everything, including habits, emotions, and beliefs! We tweak anything and everything that needs changing in you to help you be successful. We work on: overeating, food choices, sugar addiction, carbs, emotional eating, stress eating, bored eating, celebration eating, alcohol consumption, speed of eating, mindless eating, not drinking enough water, etc. We pump up motivation to exercise. We remove any limiting beliefs that might hinder your success. And, most importantly of all, we improve your self image. All this changes how you feel, and how you act in the world.
I help you to see yourself as vibrant, happy, and enthused with life, an active person who chooses healthy. And you become that person. When I was very young, there was a popular expression: “what you see is what you get.” Well, it turns out that that is true, as it applies to what you see in your own mind about your own life.
I’ve found the secret to weight loss. Here it is, in a nutshell. People think, when I lose weight, then I will have earned the right to feel good and like myself. I’ll be feeling energetic, proud, confident, sexy, in control, high self esteem, joyous, and so on.
That’s backwards. It’s not lose weight and feel great. It’s FEEL GREAT AND LOSE WEIGHT. In that order.
Once you start feeling better now, with all those good emotions rolling in you (even before you’ve “earned” them), your body begins changing automatically. With my work, we bring and attach a custom blend of good feelings to your now. And here comes the weight loss. Patterns shift. Eating changes. Easy. If you check out the many video testimonials of success on my websites, you’ll notice a common theme: “I feel so good. And it’s so surprisingly easy to lose weight.” Those two things are connected, and in the proper order.
I know this is true. Look at my face. I’ve done it. And I am doing it. One of the big issues people face is regaining weight. Yo-yo dieting, it’s called. Well, I’ve been a lighter weight for 10 years now. Long term! When you’re focused on healthy and feeling good, that’s just the way it is and how you live. I help you focus. And maintain focus. I give you tools to take home to maintain success long term.
What would you think of a hypnotist who is obese telling you they can help you to lose weight? If they could, why don’t they do it for themselves? What would you think of a timid, self-doubt-ridden hypnotist telling you they can increase your confidence? If they could, why don’t they do it for themselves? What would you think of a physician who is a chain smoker telling you to lay off the cigarettes? There’s something called “congruency” and it’s important in life and in business. I just call it “walking the talk.”
Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming–a high tech conversational hypnosis) are the tools that we work with to get you from A to B. If A is overweight and B is looking in the mirror and smiling with pleasure and success at the healthier face looking back, I can help. Let’s do it!
All the Best,
