Barbara Thurston from Castro Valley, CA
Hello, I'm Barbara Thurston. I'm a Healthcare IT consultant from Castro Valley, California. With the help of Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers, I lost an amazing 46 pounds! My dress size dropped from a tight 16 to a slim size 8. I reached my goal weight in less than 10 months. I'm excited to share my success story with you.
I was a plump kid who grew into an obese adult. I could never lose weight no matter how hard I tried. I hadn't worn a bathing suit in 30 years because I was too embarrassed about my body and the way I looked. I felt like I was losing control and it was very depressing.
My eating habits were horrible. I overate almost every night out of sheer boredom. I'd start with ice cream and then graze on anything I could find. I was also an emotional eater. I could never pass a plate of cookies or brownies at work or at home. As soon as I got upset or angry, I'd head to the refrigerator and try to eat my problems away. After any of these binges, I'd still feel dissatisfied and even more demoralized.
Well, that didn't do it; what else can I eat? was the only result of my eating binges.
I had tried losing weight by counting calories or cutting back on goodies. I even tried a pre-packaged food plan, but the food tasted horrible and it didn't fit my lifestyle. I was always left feeling hungry and deprived. The minute I got bored, my old habits were back with a vengeance. I had to learn how to eat properly.
I had seen ads for Positive Changes in the newspaper for quite some time, but I was skeptical. My job requires that I travel frequently. I had to be able to eat on the go and eat out in restaurants with clients. How could hypnosis fix that?
What finally made the decision for me was working with someone who had been diagnosed with diabetes. He had lost 40 pounds. For the sake of my health, I had to do something and if he could do it, surely I could, too. I called Positive Changes to set up my appointment for the free evaluation, made the decision to sign up right away and melted off 46 lbs. Today, I feel 10 years younger!
Being hypnotized is not what most people think. I enjoyed the relaxation and positive reinforcement, and the changes in my behavior came naturally. I started losing weight that first week. I was impressed with how easily the program fit into my busy lifestyle.
My eating and exercise habits improved and I have to say losing weight with hypnosis lowered my stress while boosting my self-esteem.
I can tell you one thing for certain: I am no longer afraid to put on a bathing suit!
I'm also saving money because I don't go through as much food and I have no desire to buy those expensive snacks. Thanks to Positive Changes, I have finally found a balance in my life.
Hypnosis helped me not only improve my eating habits, but also get motivated to exercise. I am more comfortable in my own skin than I have ever been. In fact, I have never felt so good in my life! With the approval of my doctor, I was able to cut my blood pressure medication in half. No more indigestion and acid reflux. He's very pleased with my results. My friends and family can't believe the success I've had and my husband is so proud of me.
Now that I've finally found freedom from my extra weight and my old eating habits, I am confident that this time it will stay off. I have new mantras pasted to my laptop and running through my mind: Nothing tastes as good as thin and healthy feels and I will never be fat again.
The best part is, I truly believe it! My lifestyle is now active and fulfilling. I feel strong and confident—like I can accomplish anything! I recently ran a half marathon – yes, ran the whole way – 13 miles!
The most important benefit I received from Positive Changes is the ability to focus on what I want. I've stopped negative thoughts from getting in my way. Food is no longer my top priority and I no longer use food as a reward. I have gained control of my lifestyle and it feels great. I would recommend this program to anyone.
