Carol Stopa from Worthington, OH
My name is Carol Stopa. I live in Worthington, Ohio and I work at OSU Medical Center as an office associate. Thanks to Positive Changes Hypnosis I am now 45 pounds lighter than I was when I first walked through their doors. I have lost an amazing 12 inches from my waistline, trimming me down from a size 22 to a slender 12. I did all this in only 4 1/2 months! I have gladly cleaned out my closet of all my big sizes and thrown away my fat lady catalogs! I would like to share with you how I changed my life for good with Positive Changes Hypnosis.
Depriving Myself Didn't Work
I had been overweight for ten years. I had tried to lose weight with other national programs, but my weight all came back when I stopped the diet. I needed something more. Counting, measuring and depriving myself flat out didn't work. What I really wanted was willpower. I was raised, as many people are, where food was comfort and security. Got an emotional issue to handle? A candy bar or piece of cake can fix that. Sadly, I knew exactly what I was doing to my body, which made my problem even more depressing. I needed to make a lifestyle change. I needed a program that would give me willpower and a different way to think about myself and about food. I found that at Positive Changes Hypnosis.
Too Good to be True?
I had been reading about Positive Changes in the newspaper for two years. Every few months a new ad would appear with a new satisfied client talking about how easy the program was. It seemed too good to be true, so I never called. Finally, I realized I had tried everything else. I was ready to do something for myself, to take care of me. So I called Positive Changes and set up my free initial evaluation appointment. The thing that most impressed me in that appointment was that I was actually tested to see if hypnosis would be right for me. It wasn't a one-size-fits-all kind of program. I signed up, got started right away and melted off 45 lbs in 4 ½ months.
Giddy with Results!
Let me tell you, I noticed changes in my behavior from the very first day of my program. I didn't consciously make an effort to change my eating habits. The first thing I noticed was I no longer snacked after dinner with my husband. It had been our habit to snack our way through the evening, adding a glass of wine here and there. That first night when my husband offered me a snack, I turned him down flat without thinking about it. The behavior changes lasted into the next morning when my husband made my usual cup of coffee--four sugars and two creamers. I took one drink and had to pour it out. The excessive sweetness no longer tasted good to me. My eating habits changed over the course of my program and I have now replaced cookies and cake with fruits, nuts and natural foods. It was the most natural thing in the world. Within the first week on the program I was giddy with my results. I couldn't believe it was working so easily, just like the testimonials promised. I wasn't feeling deprived or hungry in any way. I began slowly introducing exercise into my life as well. Now my day doesn't feel complete if I don't automatically exercise in the morning and get in my two-mile walk at work. I have been looking forward to the time when I have grandchildren. Now I know I'll be able to keep up with them when they do come along.
A Lightness of Being!
Thanks to Positive Changes Hypnosis, I feel so much lighter when I move. I haven't experienced that in sixteen years! I'm also enjoying all the compliments from coworkers and family members who tell me how gorgeous I am! I really enjoyed seeing family I hadn't seen in a year and showing off my new physique. The last time I had seen them I was a 2X. When I appeared in my shorts and tank top, they couldn't get over how great I looked. I am also happy to report I had much better numbers on my annual health screening.
So Much Support!
Would I recommend Positive Changes to anyone who wants to make a change in their life? You bet I would. I do it all the time with people I meet, from those who want to stop smoking, to lose weight, or even for pain management. I tell them it's a free consultation; you have nothing to lose. I can't thank Positive Changes enough for the life they have helped me create. The program offered so much support, I couldn't help but succeed. And I know that my weight loss will be permanent this time. Now why don't you give Positive Changes Hypnosis a call today and get started on that amazing change in your life? If you're like me, you'll be glad you did!
