Alwyne Richardson from Virginia Beach, Virginia
Hello. My name is Alwyne Richardson. I'm a retired systems analyst and schoolteacher from Virginia Beach, Virginia. My husband and I have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. I used to be in denial about my weight' admitting the truth was too painful. Then I went to Positive Changes and easily and naturally lost 35 lbs. in only 4 months. Positive Changes was a smart investment. I would never have lost my weight if I hadn't walked through those doors, and now my only regret is that I suffered and waited for 6 long months. I went to my doctor before starting my program, and I could tell she was skeptical. Now my doctor is amazed at my weight loss. My health has improved and my blood pressure and cholesterol are normal. My doctor now tells her other patients to try Positive Changes to lose weight, too. I was out of control when I was overweight, but hypnosis put me back in control. I have my life back!
I was overweight for 5 years. I blamed it on everything from age to metabolism to medication. It was just rationalization. I knew I was gaining weight and not doing anything about it. Diets never lasted more than a couple of days. I didn't have any willpower. I'd sneak into the kitchen to snack because I didn't want anyone to see me eating again. Cravings for junk food controlled me. I didn't want to admit I needed bigger clothes, so I tried to squeeze into smaller sizes. I remember once when I was invited to a wedding and picked out a beautiful dress to wear. When I tried it on and looked in the mirror, I finally saw how big I was. It was a horrible feeling. Still, I was good at coming up with excuses for not losing weight. I read about Positive Changes in the newspaper but waited 6 months before I called. It finally got to the point where I was squeezing myself into my clothes. That was it. I knew I needed to do something about my weight. Positive Changes' fee was reasonable, so I signed up and went from a tight size 16 to a slender 6 in only 4 months. It feels great!
My behavior changed immediately after starting my sessions at Positive Changes. I began to eat smaller portions. I can leave half the food on my plate and get two meals for the price of one, but I never feel hungry or deprived. There are no foods I 'can't have. Remember those cravings? Completely gone. I can have those foods in my house and never even think about eating them. My weight just came off. My family thinks my weight loss is fantastic and I get oodles of compliments from everyone around me. They can't believe I used hypnosis to lose weight. Before I started my program, I talked to my husband about it, and he laughed at me. He isn't laughing any more. Since seeing my success, he even tells strangers they should try hypnosis to lose weight.
When I look in the mirror, I'm delighted with what I see, and I know I can get up in the morning and look and feel great. Now that I've lost my weight using hypnosis, I don't fear ever gaining it back. I went through my closet and gave away everything that was too big for me. I also make better use of my time. I take water aerobics and ride my bike several times a week. It's easy to stay motivated. I used to think of exercise as a form of torture, but now I enjoy it. The most important benefit I received from Positive Changes is how great I feel about myself. I have self-confidence again. Hypnosis eliminated all feelings of being uncomfortable in my body. I've already convinced my sister to try Positive Changes so she can enjoy the same success I have. If you're thinking about joining Positive Changes to lose weight, I urge you to do it now. It works and it's easy. You learn new ways to eat, you never feel deprived, and you get rid of unwanted cravings. I'm glad I found Positive Changes. At 35 lbs. lighter, I feel great about myself, and you can too. Life is grand!
* By following our program, our clients lost more than 4 lbs. on average in their first 3 weeks.
