On social media recently that there are several weight loss supplements being marketed. Many of my friends have been posting before and after pictures of people who have supposedly lost weight using these supplements. Most of these pictures are of people that I have never seen before, but in all fairness there have been a few shots of my friends. I had to give them credit because this stuff really seems to be working for them. I don’t know exactly what it is they are marketing this time because it is veiled in secrecy. Apparently I have to PM private message them (PM) if I want any real information on these miraculous products. I did PM one of my friends to see what this was all about and found that the said product is being sold through the use of Multi-level marketing. Multi-level marketing always makes my critical factor (a part of your brain that determines what you will accept and what you won’t accept) rear its head. Let me apologize to all of you successful Multi-level marketers out there a head of time, but it seems to me that someone is always on the bottom of these schemes paying a higher price than what the product is worth in order to support all the people who are higher up. If you have a great product just sell it outright at a descent price. Enough of my rant already. Multi-level marketing isn’t what I want to talk about here. What I want to address is weight loss. The problem I am having with all these pictures on my news feed is this: I have a history of buying every Miracle product that has come on the market. I have bought hundreds of items that tout themselves as the last “Diet” you will ever need. I have a whole closet full of these said products. And through the years of using them do you know what I found? I found that many did work…for a minute. I would lose weight by taking the product or supplement. Then when I got to my desired weight guess what? I thought I could stop taking the supplement. Do you know what happened every single time? I gained back the weight that I had lost plus some. The product flooding my social media is upwards of 500.00 dollars the first month and around 150.00 to 300.00 every month after that (if you are a good salesman it will supposedly be free because the guy on the bottom will then pay for yours. My problem is that I was always the one on the bottom). What happens when you have a hard month and can’t afford to spend this much money on supplements? Or you lose weight to your desired goal and get the crazy idea that you can now maintain your weight loss on your own? I can’t say for sure but I have a sneaking hunch that there is a reason that weight loss is a billion dollar industry.

What I want to talk about is how do we loss the weight and keep it off? There really isn’t a miracle cure…or is there? There is but I will save that for a bit later.

One of the areas I want to address is the fact…yes, it is a fact, If you want to lose weight and keep it off you must lose weight from the inside out. I have heard it said that you will never look better than the best mental picture you have of yourself. Wow, think about that for a minute. What is your mental picture of yourself? Another point to ponder is this…many times your physical weight equals that of your mental weight. So if you are carrying around a lot of mental stress, anguish, trauma etc. You may very well be carrying around a lot of extra lbs. because of that.

I saw a video on Facebook that showed a person holding a glass. They filled the glass so it was about a third full. They talked about how the weight of the glass was really irrelevant to begin with. The person was able to hold it with ease, but the longer the person held the glass the heavier it became. The point they were making is this. It isn’t always the weight of something that matters, but rather how long you hold it. So the question is how do we begin to rid ourselves of these issues inside that have become heavy to hold? Through the use of hypnotherapy! Hypnotherapy is successful with the release of these heavy issues because it allows us to access your subconscious mind. Your subconscious makes up 90 percent of your brain. This is where all your memories are stored. The subconscious is where your emotions about the events of your life are stored. Emotions cause behaviors. Through the use of hypnotherapy we are able to discover what memories and emotions have become heavy for you to hold on to, and we are able to help you gain a new perspective of these events. This new perspective will change the emotions you feel about the event and release the weight you are carrying mentally.

I want to share with you an example of losing weight from the inside out. There is someone near and dear to me that struggled with her weight during high school. She was never obese, but was a little chunkier than she wanted to be. She was a cheerleader and would do the early morning practices where they would run laps, do weight training etc. She actually had a very active life style. She would do a few of the fad diets like eat nothing put cabbage soup, but she had little change in her physical weight. On paper she was doing everything she should be doing to lose weight. Calories in equal calories out, muscle burns more calories than fat, etc. The problem was that she had very negative self-talk. She would mentally beat herself up every time she ate. She had a mental picture of herself as being even heavier than she actually was. One day she decided to change all of that. She decided that she was going to stop feeling guilty about everything that she ate. She was going to start feeling appreciation for it instead. She was going to speak kinder and gentler to herself when she looked in the mirror. She was going to start loving herself. She quit dieting and started loving and guess what all the extra weight dropped off. Now she is super skinny. She eats only those foods that she knows her body will appreciate and use. She no longer feels anxiety or stress over her weight and her body let go of the excess physical weight.

Through the power of suggestion hypnotherapy can help change the way you view yourself. I have witnessed some beautiful examples of increased self-love. It never ceases to amaze me what love can do.

I must impress upon you that weight loss hypnosis is not a crash diet. You will not lose 10 lbs. in one week. Weight loss hypnosis is not a diet at all. It is a mental change. A life change. People using the technique of hypnosis can expect to lose ½ a pound to a pound a week, but when you look at the big picture that could equal 52 lbs. a year. 52 lbs. that you lose and never gain back. There are no supplements to by and no special meals to fix. This is a safe and natural way to lose weight. It helps you change from the inside out, and let’s face it if you don’t change inside you will never maintain the outside.

So “YES” there is a miracle cure for obesity. It is self-love. And the letting go of those heavy emotions that you are carrying around. Hypnotherapy can truly free you. It can help you begin to live the life you were meant to live.
