Chris Hicks from Moline, Illinois
I'm Chris Hicks and I live in Moline, Illinois. When I was overweight, I tried diet after diet with no success. Diets didn't fit in with the lifestyle I wanted to have. I was getting older, and I started to believe I'd never be able to lose my weight. Then I joined Positive Changes and lost 57 lbs. in just over a year! There was no measuring or weighing food' I relaxed my way to a thinner, healthier me. The change in my quality of life is incredible. Positive Changes is different from other programs because they don't focus on scales. They focus on being healthy. No one asked me how much I weighed when I started, and they accepted me as I was when I came in the door. I felt I could do this program and maintain my lifestyle with no problem. When I decided to lose weight with hypnosis, I wanted something that would be permanent, and I know Positive Changes will last the rest of my life. I have a great sense of accomplishment now that I've conquered my weight for good.
I'd always been overweight. Over the course of my life, I probably gained and lost the equivalent of 3 people! Like most overweight people, when I went on a diet and reached my goal, I felt like I'd made it. Then I went back to my old way of eating. Diets were cumbersome and difficult to maintain because they all centered around measuring foods and weighing portions. I'd seen Positive Changes' full-page ads in the paper, and I found out there was a money-back guarantee, so I finally broke down and made the appointment. I've never regretted it. I set a goal to lose 53 lbs. At the end of my program, I'd lost 56 lbs! I've even lost another pound since then.
The only difference I felt during my hypnosis session was that I was more relaxed. I was aware of everything going on around me, and I left my first session thinking nothing had happened. Then I noticed that, when I went out to eat with my husband, I ordered water with lemon instead of my usual beer or wine. I reduced my portion sizes and stopped snacking between meals. The results just happened. I knew I was in a weight-loss program, but hypnosis made it easy to make the right choices, so I lost weight without the struggle. Hypnosis also keeps me motivated to exercise. I used to suffer from insomnia, and one of the best side effects of hypnosis is that I sleep like a rock. Hypnosis helped reduce my stress. I started menopause around the time I started this program, but I haven't had one hot flash or mood swing the entire time! I credit Positive Changes for that.
So many people have noticed my weight loss. My closest friends say I don't look haggard and drawn like many people do when they lose a lot of weight. That's what is great about this program' you let your body recover naturally, so your skin doesn't sag. My husband tells me how beautiful I am and how proud he is of me. That feels great. Since I've lost weight, I've inspired my son to lose over 50 lbs. The greatest compliment I received was when my son said he wants to be like me! If you're thinking of coming to Positive Changes, all I can tell you is, look at my success. I was skeptical, too. Our culture has programmed us to believe hypnosis is nothing but smoke and mirrors. I'm living proof that's not true. I feel better not only about my appearance, but also about myself. Don't waste any more time with weighing, measuring, or counting food. Call Positive Changes to schedule your free evaluation. They'll work with you to help you realize your dreams.
