Nora Perry from Massachusettes
My name is Nora Perry and I'm a receptionist from Massachusetts. My weight problems started in adolescence and continued into adulthood. Food was my obsession, but I couldn't fill the emptiness inside. The problem was that I wasn't in control of me; food was. During my years of obesity, I felt like a hamster on a wheel. I was depressed, so I turned to food. The more I ate, the heavier I got, which triggered more depression. I couldn't break that cycle on my own. Then I lost 60 lbs. at Positive Changes, without dieting or cravings. After having once worn a snug 24, fitting into a slender size 8 is a miracle. Thanks to Positive Changes, I'm the thinnest I've ever been in my life. My doctor is thrilled I was able to take off my weight without medication or excessive dieting. Hypnosis has been the most relaxing experience of my life. I no longer require my blood pressure medication, and my cholesterol is way down. No more tears for me! That alone makes my hypnosis program worth every penny. I couldn't be more satisfied.
I had a Portuguese-Italian background where everything was centered on eating. Early in life I learned to satisfy my emotions with food. My excessive weight embarrassed me. I had to drive my car with the seat pushed back so far I could scarcely reach the gas pedal. Squeezing into a restaurant booth was out of the question. One night I went to bed and my heart was pounding so hard I was afraid to fall asleep. I promised myself I'd do something about my weight. The next morning started the first of many diets. I'd lose 10 lbs. and gain back 15. I was so addicted to diet pills; it's a wonder I'm alive to tell about it. I went to every diet workshop or group meeting I could find. After 11 long years of diets and pills, I completely lost it. I was slipping into old, destructive eating habits. I started to gain weight rapidly. I was scared to death. I happened across an article in the newspaper about a woman who lost 60 lbs. through hypnosis. I thought, "Oh, if only I could look like her!" I read the article again and finally called to set up my free evaluation. I sat across from my consultant with a box of tissue on my lap. I told her how frightened I was, how I was bingeing on chocolate and how embarrassing it was to be out of control. She reassured me and made me feel comfortable. Best of all, I never felt pressured the way I had at some diet centers. I joined the program and lost 60 lbs. in 7 short months. Never in my life did I dream I'd fit a size 8.
Hypnosis made it all so simple. I call it my R&L (relax & lose) program. I've made wonderful changes in my habits and behaviors. I noticed a change in the way I was thinking immediately after my first hypnosis session. I walked with a newfound stride; my head was high and I had a spring in my step. I soon realized my chocolate cravings had vanished. Food is no longer on the top of my priority list. I'm selective about what I eat, yet I never feel deprived. I eat what I want. When they're passing out candy bars at work, I find it easy to say no, thank you. I was never able to commit to exercise, but now I'm exercising regularly and I enjoy it. What a wonderful feeling to see that needle on the scale dropping down, down, down. I love myself for the first time in my life. I won't ever diet again.
People can't believe I'm 59 years old. I'm strong mentally and physically. When I look at old pictures of myself, it's like looking at another person. I love to feel attractive. I have relatives I used to envy because they were smaller than me, but now I'm smaller than them! I also have a beautiful new wardrobe. I'm even saving money because I no longer purchase sweets, chips and candy. I feel confident my success is for life. If you're feeling anything like that hamster on a wheel, please consider what hypnosis offers you. In my opinion, the name, Positive Changes, says it all. If you're still in doubt, take one more look at me. I shudder to think where I'd be without their help. I have it all together thanks to Positive Changes.
