Healthy Lifestyle: Casey

I've struggled with my weight for the last five years. Towards the end of middle school, it started to bug me because I knew I was going into high school and I wanted to start fresh. I always had this thing in my head telling me that I needed to do something about it, so I tried the Adkins Diet and Weight Watchers. I didn't like having to count points or cut out food groups and I just felt like I had no options with what I could eat, it was frustrating. I didn't really see any changes with either of them so after a few months, I quit. I felt like I didn't have a system. I knew what I was supposed to do, but I just didn't do it.

My mom did an internet search and found A New Day Hypnosis. After we talked about it, I decided that I wanted to make an appointment. I noticed changes pretty quickly. I was paying more attention to what I was eating and it wasn't hard for me. I'm more athletic and energetic and I'm practicing for basketball and volleyball when I'm at home, which I never used to do. I've noticed that my clothes are baggier and everything is a little bit too big for me when I'm shopping. My family has noticed that my face is getting thinner. I feel more in control now and I'm aware of what I'm eating and how much I'm eating. I'm making the right choices and I don't overeat and snack, I'm also drinking a lot more water.

My friends have noticed that I'm eating a healthy lunch at school with more organic foods. I feel more confident. I used to wear a jacket all the time to try and cover up and now I don't do that anymore. I'm more social and I do more things with friends on weekends instead of staying at home. I've also been participating more when I'm in class.

My biggest benefit has been that I'm paying attention more to what's in foods and avoiding the things that are bad for me. Hypnosis has helped me make more thought out decisions and I never just act without thinking about it. I know that these changes and my new lifestyle will be permanent because I have a strong focus on my goals and I want to sustain that focus. I would recommend A New Day hypnosis because it's worked for me and it's really helped a lot. When I heard about hypnosis I'd always thought that it was somebody just telling you what to do and not discussing anything, but that's not how it's been at all. Laura is open and she really listens and works to help me find solutions. I'm more focused and feel really motivated about staying that way.
