I've had a life long struggle with my weight and it was a physical and emotional battle every day. I felt like I was fighting with myself and sometimes it was even hard for me to get out of bed. I was stressed out and erupting like a volcano all the time. I would be alone and I would eat a whole plate of food and just keep eating. I felt out of control; I was caught in a tornado and I was going around and around, but my situation was never changing. I work in a kitchen and I was always snacking and was eating fast food late at night. I just accepted that this was the way things are.

I've tried diets; I would lose weight and then go right back up, exercise would work for a while, but I would lose motivation and get too comfortable and end up slipping back into old habits. Five years ago, I had bariatric surgery. I had drastic weight loss, but unfortunately I had a physical surgery and not a mental one. My mind was in the same place that it had been before and I was afraid I going to end up gaining back all the weight.

I heard about A New Day Hypnosis on citysearch. I saw so many reviews and recommendations about it.

I was looking for a change and wanted to know if it could help me, so I decided to call. I started to notice that I felt calmer after the first session. I was paying more attention to what I was eating and I felt like I was processing information better. I started exercising more and eating smaller portions and I wasn't stopping for fast food on the way home from work.

It's been painless and easy for me. I have more energy now and I'm able to calmly and effectively handle things. My blood pressure has become stable and my blood sugar is lower. I feel more in control. Hypnosis has helped me stop bingeing and snacking and it's really good to know that I'm the one making the choices now instead of the food, the people around me, my emotions, or my stress. I feel personally accountable for what I'm doing.

The changes in my emotional state and stress levels have been the biggest benefits for me. It's been an eye opener; I feel like I've had the light turned on in my mind and I know now that there was a reason behind my behaviors. In the long term, I know that this will help me not to take on everybody's problems and stress eat. I am handling situations differently and I've had coworkers comment on how well I'm handling things. Everyone says that I'm so different and I've even been asked if I'm taking medication.

I feel more confident. I look people in the eye and I walk with confidence. I take more care about how I present myself. I have a boost and it's helped. I know what I want and I'm much more sure of my goals. I know that these changes and my healthy lifestyle will be permanent. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to change their lifestyle. I know that it's beneficial because if it can help me than it could help anyone.
