Huelsman Sylvia from Westerville, OH
My name is Sylvia Huelsman and I live in Westerville, Ohio. I'm an educational consultant. I came to Positive Changes for weight loss and to date I've lost 23 pounds and dropped a clothing size. I'm very pleased with my program.
Before Positive Changes I was out of control. I really felt that way. My clothing was tight and uncomfortable. I had to wear jackets all the time to cover my stomach. I didn't like to see pictures of myself because I knew I looked fat in them. I wasn't able to control eating certain foods. I would go to the teacher's lounge at school and there would be donuts or other treats there and I'd tell myself not to eat them, but I always did. Then, once I had the first one, it was so easy for me to just continue eating like that for the rest of the day.
Even though I had only been really overweight for about two years, I have always had to watch my weight. I did all kinds of crazy things to lose weight over the years--fad diets, crash diets, Atkins. I could lose some weight but it was never permanent. The only time I maintained my weight loss was when I just didn't eat. And that wasn't healthy.
I heard about Positive Changes Hypnosis in the newspaper. Since I come from an educational and mental health background the premise of the program made perfect sense to me. I liked that the program offered classes to teach me about nutrition and weight loss. I thought that I knew my stuff when it came to nutrition but I have learned a lot from Positive Changes Hypnosis. I also liked the thought of using relaxation to help me achieve my goals. I thought, this is about the only thing I haven't tried, so why not?
Within a month of starting my program at Positive Changes I was noticing some definite improvements in my behavior. I was drinking water--something I had never done before in my life. I was able to leave food on my plate and still walk away satisfied. Those were huge changes for me. I was slowly and steadily taking the pounds off and it was easy and natural.
Even though my weight loss has been a wonderful result of my program at Positive Changes, the biggest benefits I've received are a little bit different. I've learned a lot about nutrition from the classes the center offers. I'm a vegetarian and before Positive Changes my diet consisted of mostly carbohydrates. I was a carb freak. Positive Changes taught me how to incorporate protein in my diet in a way that fit my lifestyle--suddenly, I wasn't as hungry as I used to be. I used to graze on food all day because I was constantly hungry. Now I've eliminated snacking between meals and I know how to have a well balanced diet. I also really enjoy the positive messages I receive when I'm at Positive Changes and I share those with the people around me. It's made me a more positive person.
I'm exercising more and I'm more motivated to continue with the exercise and healthy eating habits. I really feel more confident and in control of my life and it's thanks to everything I've learned at Positive Changes Hypnosis. Everyone around me has noticed the changes as well and it's really encouraging when people compliment me on my weight loss. With everything I've learned, I know that this time my weight loss will be permanent.
Would I recommend Positive Changes to someone else who wants to lose weight and get healthy? I absolutely would and I have. If you want to make a change in your life, come to Positive Changes. They can help you the way they helped me.
