It has been a few weeks since my being put under hypnosis for weight loss. Since then every time I go to eat a potato chip I feel the need to cover my mouth tightly with my hands. Just kidding LOL. Actually there have been no adverse effects.
If you remember, my first time being hypnotized included a story about a Queen (who I assumed was me) who bases her food choices on what is good for her. For a little while after I did find myself thinking often “is this good for me to have” when faced with a menu or meal option. I wish I could say that resulted in me only having what was good for me in every occasion but I have not been lying on this blog so I better not start.
The hypnotherapist said that hypnosis was not a magic pill for weight loss. She was right. I have been gaining and losing the same 1.5 lbs the last few weeks. The good thing about this it means that I am doing some things that lead to weight loss. The bad thing about it is that it means I have not been consistent enough with those behaviors.
The major change that I feel is a direct result of the hypnosis is that I have been able to make many choices that were good for me without feeling deprived. I have thrown in some days where I do not have any junk food and I did not feel that I was missing out. I knew that I could have them again on another day. I have been able to have a large salad much more often for dinner (my mom’s suggestion 🙂 and I have not felt resentful or that I was having rabbit food. I feel my attitude toward changing my diet and food in general improving. I give the hypnosis the credit.
With there being positive but no negative results of the hypnosis. I figured I’d keep the appointment I had made and go ahead and meet with the hypnotherapist again. This third meeting was my 2nd time being put under. I initially i did not feel the 2nd hypnosis went as well as the first. However, by the end of the session I changed my mind. This session was… Wait! instead reading about it check out the video I made right after the session.
I bet most of you have tried to lose wight before. Have you ever spent time working on your thoughts and attitudes about food or do you think it is all calories in vs calories burned???
