Let me tell you about my past life, back when I was an unhealthy, miserable, unhappy, fat, 40-pound overweight lady.
Hey, back then if you gave me a choice between a steak dinner with a baked potato topped with sour cream, butter, cheese and green onions, or a warmed chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream on top, I would go for the chocolate brownie with ice cream on top every time! Why? Because I was a hopeless “Sugarholic.”
Back then, my typical breakfast consisted of two warmed honey buns with a cup of hot tea with two teaspoons of sugar. Lunch consisted of a large hot sandwich on a bun, a large serving of French fries, and then I’d top it off with one of my favorite king-sized chocolate candy bars for dessert. My dinner usually consisted of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, two biscuits, macaroni and cheese, and I’d top that off with a big bowl of ice cream for dessert. I thrived on my ‘sugar high’ all day long. I’d also drink at least eight to nine colas a day which we know are loaded with sugar. Then I would complain to my husband, “I just don’t understand why I am so overweight! You see what I eat and it is not that much.”
Whoa! Back then I did not know that my stomach (in its natural size) is about the size of my fist and through my overeating, I’d stretched it to the size of a basketball. I thought what I ate was ‘normal.’
When I think back, I realize I was obsessed with food. While I would be eating my breakfast, I was fantasizing over what I would eat for lunch. When I was eating my lunch, I was fantasizing over what I wanted to eat for dinner. When I had finished my dinner, I would fantasize over what I was going to eat the next day. I was truly obsessed with food and food controlled me. Food ruled my day! All I talked about to my coworkers, friends and family is what new fad diet I was going to start the following Monday. Of course you know every new fad diet restricts you from eating from some food group that you love, so I would last about two weeks and then my mind and body would scream, “I want my desserts back! I want my mashed potatoes and gravy back! I want my macaroni and cheese back! I can’t stand this anymore.” And, my yo-yo dieting would start all over again. Starve or binge, starve or binge, there was no in between.
On the day I took my “Sugarholic” Quiz I had an awakening. I finally confessed that I was a hopeless “Sugarholic. WOW! They say confession is good for the soul. HA! I also finally confessed that I needed help. This is when I decided to see if learning Self-Hypnosis could help someone as hopeless as me. Learning to practice Self-Hypnosis changed my life so profoundly for the better that twenty years ago I took a leap of faith and left a very successful 17 year career in the field of Human Resources to start my own hypnosis practice, because I was determine to figure out the secrets to lasting weight loss.
Are you beginning to see that maybe, just maybe, I am a lot like you? Are you beginning to see that maybe, just maybe, I have probably done every little food game/trick you have done and then some? So why am I telling you all of this? Because if I can learn how to lose my extra 40 pounds using self-hypnosis and KEEP it off for 20 years, then you can too! I am proud of my success.
