I am 58 years old and because of my love for beer, fast foods, snacks and anything else I craved, I allowed myself to reach 273 lbs. body weight with a size 45-inch waist. I am only 5 feet 5 inches tall so I felt as round as I am tall. I felt absolutely exhausted, terrible and disgusted with myself. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and there is a history of diabetes in my family. I had no energy or drive to do anything and would get winded drying off after a shower. My wife says I would wheeze watching TV. I was also starting to have mobility issues with my knees and hips and it was difficult to climb the stairs to bed.
I was always able to find the motivation to lose weight before and would successfully hit the 20-pound weight loss with diet and exercise only to put it back on and more after a few months. I knew I needed to make positive changes to my health but was unable to somehow get that drive in the right direction.
I decided to try something different to grasp that spark to get me going and underwent hypnosis with Julia at A Butterfly’s Touch Wellness one month ago for weight loss. My goal is to lose 100 lbs. within a year based on one to two lbs. per week.
I followed Julia’s expert direction with “easy homework” each week to implant the positive suggestions in my subconsciousness thought process as well as consciously being aware of the changes I had to make to reach my goals. Julia also provided me with a sensible diet book to follow to help with my plan.
Since the hypnosis sessions, my life has been turned 180 degrees as I now eat properly without even thinking about it, I naturally turn to healthy foods and snacks and have no desire for junk or fast foods. I am also working out four times a week at the gym I’ve joined as well as doing an hour a day on my treadmill. Since starting the therapy I’ve lost twenty-five lbs., five inches off my waist and feel like a new person, I have tons of energy to burn now and no longer feel like a blimp. The doctor says at this rate I will be able to come off all medications as well.
Having the hypnotherapy was the best money I’ve ever spent! No looking back as I move on to reach my goals.
