Lose Weight – Not Hope

WaistNo Drugs. No Surgery. No Dieting.
Just the Power of Your Own Mind
can help you lose weight.

You can take back control of your eating habits
and reach your ideal weight safely and naturally.

Losing weight is not about going on a diet, diets often fail!
Losing weight is a personal journey -. it’s your body, your metabolism, and your goal.

No Fuss. No Dieting. No Counting Calories.
You do not need to rely on counting calories.
You do not need to starve yourself.

Your body and mind can be helped to work together
(this is where hypnotherapy excels as a safe, natural way to lose weight).
To help you start your weight loss journey some pre-planning can make the road to success so much easier for you. Here are a few tips to help you identify your personal goal to lose the excess weight and become the person you want to be.

First of all identify:
1) Where are you now?
(what weight are you now and what clothes size?)
2) What do you want to achieve?
(what is your ideal weight and ideal clothes size?)
3) What ‘stepping stones’ would help?
(break your weight loss goal down into small successful steps of achievement),

A goal needs to be specific, realistic and achievable.

Now ask yourself:
i)   “is my goal specific, i.e. I know how much weight I want to lose and what clothes size I want to fit into?”

ii)  “is my goal realistic, i.e. am I planning a sustained weight loss over a period of time and not a quick fix and put my health at risk approach?”

iii) “is my goal achievable, i.e. “is there anything that could interfere with me achieving my weight loss goal?
(be honest…do you eat if feeling angry, bored, lonely, stressed, anxious, etc. or perhaps just overeating, or maybe some other reason – seek help if you need to).

Losing Weight Can Help You Build Confidence and Self Esteem
How would you like to look in the mirror, see a reflection of yourself and think:
“wow! I look good!”

What you think as you look in the mirror will affect how you feel and as you admire the slim, fit looking body of yourself so your feelings about yourself will be given a tremendous boost.

Never put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.
How many times have you told yourself…tomorrow, I’ll start tomorrow!

Are You Ready to Lose Weight – Now?
If your answer is a firm YES then ‘go for it!’
If you need help then seek help, if you do not need help and you feel you can go it alone…I wish you well.

Health and Happiness to you.

Quit Smoking?
Lose Weight?
Curb or Quit Alcohol altogether?
Or do you have some other goal in mind?

‘I just want to live while I’m alive’ is a famous line from a Bon Jovi track and there is no better time than Now to really think about how you want to live your life.
Lifestyle changes are often on people’s lips of what they want to change, but generally speaking, after 3-4 weeks many people give up and feel disillusioned, stuck in the “I can’t do this’ mould. But success can be yours.

Plan for Success
Success is in the planning strategy – the step by step guide of how to make your goal a reality – long term, not just for a few short weeks. Achieving a personal goal to stop smoking, shed the excess weight or control alcohol intake involves many factors that most people are unaware of, so prepare yourself for success.

i) The Art of Saying ‘NO’
Initially in the first few days – or week, when motivation is exceptionally strong, it is generally easier to resist group pressure (and never underestimate group pressure). However, as time goes on, the human desire to ‘fit in’ can often override any personal desire to give up something that the rest of the group are doing, so falling into the relapse trap is common unless you have prepared yourself mentally – how to say ‘NO’ to others is a skill to be learned.

ii) Resisting Temptation
Equally important is the ability to say ‘NO’ to yourself, a good example is when you are dining out and you feel like indulging in a favourite food but know that health wise or weight wise, it’s a ‘no no’! This reminds me of being at a restaurant with a group of friends and one lady ordered chilli mussels. Within an hour of eating the mussels she suffered the stomach cramps and discomfort that she had always suffered when eating chilli mussels. One might ponder: Why did she eat them?

She was ‘in the moment’, dismissing her mind’s attempts to tell her that it wasn’t a good idea to eat the mussels, it’s as though she had ‘brought the shutters down’ on the reasoning part of her mind and ignored all the years of evidence that had gone before. She hadn’t mentally prepared herself for such a situation.
Whatever your goal is, listen to the commitment you have made to yourself. If you are struggling then seek Professional help in the way of counselling or hypnotherapy.

iii) Coping With Stress and Anxiety
If smoking, alcohol or food are your usual way of coping with a stressful or anxious situation then counselling or hypnotherapy can certainly help you let go of your dependence on these methods and adopt a healthier personal coping style.

4) Lifestyle Changes Can Lead To A Healthier Lifestyle
There is so much medical evidence that how we live day by day impacts on overall general health and even how long we live. Investing in yourself and living a healthier lifestyle now may improve your quality of life as the years roll by.

Health and Happiness to you.
