Healthy Lifestyle: Jennifer

I've had to struggle with my weight for the last five years and it's been very difficult and painful. I was tired and restless all the time and it was hard to not be able to fit into any of my clothes. It was painful emotionally seeing people who were thin and then looking in the mirror and feeling so fat. I felt out of control because I couldn't stop myself from eating. I saw what I was doing, but I couldn't do anything about it. It had gotten to the point where I was eating between five and eight times a day. I was embarrassed that I was getting fatter, so I stopped eating around other people.

I've tried fasting, crash dieting, different meal plans, and exercise. The results were temporary no matter what I did. I would lose a little weight and then gain it all back. I'd try for awhile and then miss the foods that I used to eat or I would have outside interference from friends and family and just make the bad choices again.

I heard about A New Day Hypnosis on citysearch. Every review that I read was a positive one, so I thought I'd call. I had a little bit of concern about using hypnosis, because of the things I've seen on TV and in the movies. I was a little worried that it might be mind control, but when I came in and met Laura she seemed wonderful, so I wasn't worried.

I noticed changes immediately after my first session. When I went to eat something, I was choosing things that were healthy. I wanted to get up and go and I didn't have the desire to lounge around anymore. I've gone down two clothing sizes so far. I have more energy and I don't struggle to get up stairs anymore; I'm also getting a much deeper sleep. Of course, there is always that temptation in the background to make bad choices, but doing hypnosis has helped reinforce everything and keep me on track. I feel more in control and if I notice that I'm reaching for something I can stop myself now.

Hypnosis has helped me eliminate all the snacking and friends and family have noticed that I'm thinner and I'm wearing different clothes. I eat more vegetables and fruit and I find that I'm eating a lot less in general. I can control myself and I'm just eating three times a day. I feel more confident and I'm a lot more positive because I have hope for my future.

My biggest benefit has been that I have the tools to lose weight and I've learned a lot about what to eat and what exercises are best for me. I have a clearer structure on how to plan and a direction for healthy eating in my life. I know how to do this and I can apply it to everyday life rather than running home to eat my Jenny Craig meal or getting on another temporary diet. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to lose weight because it really does work.
