Debbie Day from Burnsville, Minnesota
In Today's Weight-Conscious Society, Are You Ever Embarrassed By Your Weight? This Woman Was – Read Here to Find Out What Changed!
Because of my weight, I used to be too embarrassed to go out in public. I was even embarrassed when my sons' friends came over to play. That all changed when I lost 54 lbs. in 8 months! I went from a stout size 16 to a slim 8. Now I can hold my head up high. Here's how I did it…
Hello. My name is Debbie Day. I live in Burnsville, Minnesota with my husband, Randy, and our 3 children. I was overweight off and on since my youngest child was born. I had back problems, and had to go to the chiropractor constantly to relieve my pain. I suffered from headaches. My feet hurt from carrying my extra weight. I had trouble just getting out of bed in the morning!
I never sat down for meals. I was home all day doing childcare, so it was easy to snack and graze. I never felt hungry because I ate all the time. I was under stress and would eat food simply because it was there. I didn't want to go out in public because I was embarrassed by my weight.
I tried to lose weight with prepackaged food, the cabbage diet and the low-carb diet. I once lost weight through pills and starvation. Of course, I gained it all back. I did a version of the point system. I would get to noon, only to find I'd eaten all my points! I tried every diet I could find, but none of them made sense. I felt out of control.
That was when a friend of mine told me about Positive Changes. She knew my weight constantly yo-yoed, and she felt hypnosis could help. Like many people, I was skeptical at first. I knew about stop-smoking seminars at hotels, but I'd never heard of anyone using hypnosis to lose weight. I'd always thought of hypnosis as stage-show antics. I delayed for a month before I called. Seeing the scale tip 192 finally made my decision for me! Positive Changes was my last resort.
The free screening was comfortable, and everything was explained to me in detail. The only pressure I felt to join the program came from myself. The program was guaranteed, so I knew I didn't have anything to lose. The fee was less than I'd spent on a national diet chain I'd tried 11 years before. I signed up and saw immediate changes. I wasn't skeptical any more!
I noticed changes after only 2 days. Hypnosis eliminated my poor eating habits and constant need to eat. I'd been drinking at least three 20-ounce bottles of soda a day, but now I don't drink soda at all. I used to drink a pot of coffee before noon, but that stopped too. I just don't want it. I enjoy my healthy choices more than I ever enjoyed junk foods.
I used to be a fast eater, always the first one finished. I learned to slow down and enjoy meal times with my family. I eat a lot less and enjoy it more. I've also started exercising. I lift small weights 3 days a week and I walk 4 or 5 miles 5 days a week. It is easy to stay motivated to exercise. I love taking time out for myself.
I thrive at Positive Changes Hypnosis! When people ask me how I lost my weight, I sometimes tell them I don't know. It was that easy! I came in for my appointments and lost my weight. That was it. Hypnosis was the right decision for me.
It was wonderful, the first time I went shopping with my daughter and was able to select clothes right off the rack. We enjoy shopping together now. I even started buying a new wardrobe. I tried to keep wearing my old clothes, but my husband told me I looked like I was wearing pajamas! This is the first time in my life that I have no fear of gaining my weight back. In the past I kept my fat clothes in the back of the closet, just in case. I've taken everything out of my closet and gotten rid of it.
I'm excited by my new appearance. A year ago, I could never have held my head up and said I was proud of myself. Losing weight gave me more confidence than I've had in 10 years. I'm no longer embarrassed when my sons' friends come over. People always notice how much weight I've lost.
I make better use of my time now. I'm organized! I can keep up with my kids' busy schedules and still manage my home without making myself crazy. My house is cleaner than when I stayed home all day. I enjoy my leisure time more knowing everything is done at home. I always liked to cook, but now I enjoy finding healthy ways to fix my family's favorites. We also save money by not going out to dinner all the time. That pays for this program in itself!
Hypnosis put me back in control of my eating and my life. I have no fear of losing control again. I feel wonderful about myself. I've met other clients at Positive Changes who are getting results like mine. Everyone is excited about the program. I don't know what I would have done without the staff at Positive Changes. I had a cheerleading section to make sure I reached my goals. Thank you Positive Changes!
