Josephine Hageman from Virginia
My name is Josephine Hageman. I live in Virginia with my husband, Len. I'm a retired substitute teacher and housewife. Most people think older folks can't lose weight. They seem to think we somehow stop caring about how we look, or that grandmas should be fat and happy. It simply isn't true. I'd been overweight for 30 years. I was unhealthy, unhappy and downright miserable about my weight. Diets were always such a hassle. I didn't like messing with special foods or diet plans. That all changed when I joined Positive Changes and lost 5 dress sizes. I'm full of energy, youthful and carefree! The entire Positive Changes staff has an honest-to-goodness mission to help people. To me, they're like family. The beautiful part about hypnosis is that I make my own food choices. I don't have to conform to somebody else's idea of what I should be eating.
My eating habits were compulsive. I ate when I was happy, sad, excited, bored, or just because the food was within reach. I couldn't stop, even though it gave me horrible heartburn. My cholesterol was high and my energy was low. I had crazy cravings too, especially breads, starches and soda pop. I was the queen of the yo-yo diet. With every diet, my cravings got worse. One day a friend asked me what I thought about hypnosis. I said, "To lose weight?" After that I began to wonder, could there be something to hypnosis? I began reading the Positive Changes ads in the newspaper. Still, I was leery. It seemed too good to be true. I looked at the ads for months and asked everyone I knew what they thought about hypnosis. I even asked our parish priest. He said, "Go ahead, hypnosis is nothing to fear." Still, when I scheduled my free evaluation, I asked my husband to come with me. Len and I were impressed from the moment we walked through the door. Our evaluator explained how hypnosis works and answered every question Len and I asked. Best of all, she never pressured me or asked me to buy anything. Len and I agreed; I should give hypnosis a try.
In one short week, I had a whole attitude change. My hypnotist gave me suggestions to relax and get comfortable. She told me I'd eat only when I was hungry and that I'd stop eating when I was full. That's exactly what I did. When I first started hypnosis, I desperately wanted to lose 40 lbs. Now that I've taken off 51 lbs. in 9 months--and now that my dress size has gone from a 24 to a lean 14--I'm certain my weight problem is gone for good. My doctor says my cholesterol has come way down. I no longer use antacids, and all my horrible reflux is gone. My skin problems cleared up. I have no pain, not even from my arthritis. Folks never used to pay much attention to me, but people have a different attitude toward me now that I'm thin. I have fun shopping for new clothing, and feel sharp in my new look. I no longer sit and watch TV like most retired folks. I'm always on the go. It's the little things that make me happy, things thin people take for granted, like the fact that I can cross my legs again. I know some of my friends are watching to see if I go back, but there's no way that will ever happen!
I know you may be skeptical of hypnosis. I sure was until I experienced it firsthand. Now my results are proof positive... hypnosis works. I'm a 72-year-young lady thanks to Positive Changes. So here's how I see it. If it makes you feel good about yourself, lets you wear pretty clothes, and makes you genuinely happy, it's more valuable than all the money in the world. So, if you want to lose weight and feel good about yourself, take a few minutes to find out for yourself. Call and schedule your free evaluation. If you're like me, you'll be glad you made that call. Thanks to hypnosis, I'm slender for life!
