Need to Lose Weight in a Month or Two?
People want to lose weight for many reasons. It might be for health, to attract a partner, to get a promotion or a new job, or in this case study; to look great at a daughter’s wedding!
“Wanda” from Chicago came to Sullivan Hypnotherapy because she was feeling frustrated. She wanted to lose weight, but felt like she had no “will power.”
I explained to her that using hypnosis to lose weight would make it easier to lose her desire for the foods that caused her to gain weight in the first place and to lessen her desire to eat when her body did not need food.
There are many emotional components to being overweight. Some people are emotional eaters. They eat during stressful times because the subconscious mind stores memories of childhood when they were comforted by food.
Emotions such as sadness, loneliness or anger can cause some people to over eat. For many people, food is a reward for doing something good, a way to celebrate a special occasion, a comfort when we’re feeling bad or even something to do when we’re bored.
People often turn to food when they feel:
Using Hypnosis to Lose Weight Has Benefits
Hypnosis for weight loss helps to lower stress and increase confidence and feelings of self-worth in addition to the reduced desire for greasy, sugary, salty, and starchy foods.
I explained to Wanda that the average weight loss is 2-4 pounds per week when using hypnosis for weight loss. Wanda wanted to lose weight for her son’s upcoming wedding in three months and had already purchased the dress she was going to wear. She figured she would need to lose 20 pounds to wear the dress, but her goal was to drop 25 pounds by the end of three months using hypnosis for weight loss and walking three mornings per week.
At the end of three months Wanda reported that she had lost twenty two pounds and that the dress looked great on her. She has come in for a “tune up” twice to fine tune her hypnosis for weight management and has kept the weight off for over two years.
“A cousin asked me how I rid of my excess weight, I told her about our gastric band hypnotherapy session and how you helped me to shed 80 lbs. over 4.5 years. I’m going to send her your info. I hope you have been well and wish you the best.” M.B. Arlington Heights
