Marion Chauvin from Metairie, Louisiana
My name is Marion Chauvin. I live in Louisiana and have two boys, Ian and Sean. My weight problem started the way it does for so many women--with pregnancy. You name the diet, I'd tried it. I tried to laugh it off, calling myself the diet guru, but the truth was that I felt bloated, awkward and ashamed. Dieting was a constant battle. Thanks to hypnosis, though, I lost 24 lbs. and have kept it off for over 7 years! My dress size went from a 14 to an 8. Being hypnotized is the most wonderful feeling. My thoughts about myself and my life are totally different, and I don't look at food the same way. Thanks to hypnosis, I'm a new person inside and out.
For me, being pregnant was like opening a Pandora's Box of food. I was eating everything in sight. After my second pregnancy, my bad habits finally caught up with me. I was overweight and embarrassed by my appearance. That's when the dieting started. I tried a prepackaged diet one year during the holiday season, and I remember bringing all those packets to Thanksgiving dinner. It was ridiculous and I was miserable. The whole time I was looking forward to the day I could eat "normal" again. I started trying other diets such as shakes and herbal pills. The shakes left me feeling starved and the herbal pills made me a nervous wreck. Something had to change. In a drawer at work, I found a brochure that talked about hypnosis and weight loss. I laughed and stuffed it back in the drawer, but for the next few weeks my weight continued to climb. One day, while feeling overwhelmed by hopelessness, I went back to the drawer and dug out that hypnosis brochure. The information I was reading made good sense, so I called up and went in for an evaluation. That was the best gift I ever gave myself!
When I left my first session, I felt wonderful--as if I'd just been through a soothing "mental massage." Hypnosis helped me eliminate cravings, food binges, and poor eating habits. I eat what I want, when I want. I've never felt deprived, because I'm enjoying good foods as much as I used to enjoy junk foods and sweets. In fact, I love to eat well. Another benefit of hypnosis is the way I feel about myself. Before hypnosis, I thought feeling bad was just a part of life. Now I realize my bad eating habits and negative thoughts were what made me feel so lousy. Enjoying healthy foods and thinking positive thoughts keeps me feeling great! I'm 100% confident I'll never gain my weight back. I remember the day I was in a session with my hypnotist and I said, "You know, it's 9 weeks later and I've been this thin before. How do I know I'm not going to gain my weight back?" She smiled. "Well, Marion," she said. "Ask yourself this: Did you diet?" "No," I responded, "I haven't dieted at all." That's when it hit me that I'd changed my way of living.
Positive Changes has a wonderful system for helping people become more effective in life in many ways. An improved self-image and soaring self-confidence seem to be natural side effects. If your goal is simply to diet, go ahead and try more packaged foods, shakes or pills. Just be prepared to deal with your weight again a few months down the road. If, on the other hand, you want to learn how to change yourself and your life so food is not an issue, then I urge you to call Positive Changes right away to schedule your free evaluation.
