Joyce Olaveson from Boise, ID
My name is Joyce Olaveson. I live in Boise, ID and I'm a Credit Analyst for a major bank. I heard about Positive Changes through TV, radio, and the newspaper. Before I came to Positive Changes, I didn't feel very good about myself. Every time I went to the doctor, my cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar were all going up. My doctor was saying that I was obese. I needed to change it and that's why I called Positive Changes. It was getting worse and worse and I needed to do something for myself. I was overweight for probably 15-16 years, since I was 40.
Since coming to Positive Changes, I have lost 35 lbs and gone from a size 14 to a size 8. I do have 1 pair of size 6 pants. It took me 6 months to lose the 35 lbs. I have tried just about everything else but this is the first time I have gone through a program. I mostly tried on my own; going to the gym, cutting calories, cutting food. I just didn't have any self-control. With Positive Changes Hypnosis it was very easy to lose weight, it was almost effortless. It was wonderful. I started seeing results immediately after my first personal session. It was like somebody flipped a switch in there. My weight loss has been consistent. I started losing immediately and lost all the way through my program. It kind of slowed down at the end, but I think my body just got to where it wanted to be and decided to stay.
My behavior changed immediately. I just had no desire for snacks, no desire for all the garbage that I was eating before. Before I came to Positive Changes, I was not in control of my eating habits at all. I thought I was but I really wasn't. Now I feel that I have complete control. When I walk past something, I have no desire to jump in and have a snack.
I have seen my doctor since I started Positive Changes and my doctor was extremely pleased. He walked in the door and could tell I had lost the weight. All my numbers were in line, my cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and even my thyroid; I was even able to reduce that.
Everybody has noticed. My friends say that I even have a lighter attitude, a different attitude, not so serious, more fun I guess. My self-esteem has gone way up from what it was before. I just feel way more confident in myself. Everybody here at Positive Changes has been wonderful.
I do feel like the cost of the program was justified because it has totally changed my life. It's changed my attitude. I'm also saving the costs of drugs that I would have to take if I were to get diabetes or high cholesterol. Now I don't have to worry about that and that's a huge savings.
I'm going to go snowshoeing this winter. It's something I enjoy and haven't been able to do because of my weight. I am also looking forward to my main goal this summer, which is to get to the lookout tower at Jackson Peak, on foot and on the trail. I will do it.
I think the most valuable benefit I've received from coming to Positive Changes is the better health and better self-esteem. It's been great. I do believe that my weight loss is permanent. I know I can do it now; I have the willpower and the tools.
I would recommend Positive Changes to anyone and everyone. Not just for weight loss but for the other benefits as well like increased self-esteem and the ability to let go of bad attitudes and have a much more positive life.
