I couldn't seem to get back on track. Just had gone through a really tough time. Finally, I started listening to my self-hypnosis tapes again, and though the power of suggestion, I am back to walking and keeping my food journal!
Hypnosis is merely putting yourself in a very relaxed state, and this allows you to accept positive suggestions. You will never do something that you don't want to do when using hypnosis, and it really helps!
My hypnosis cd's have Wendy on them and she is always positive. She tells you that you self talk everyday. So be careful of what you say. Watch out, that little voice in our head can be our biggest help or our worst enemy. When you talk to yourself, ALWAYS be positive. Say things like, I am ready to, I want to, and I would love to, and cut out comments like, I have to, I need to and I have got to. These latter comments make this one more burden you have added to your life.
Each day tell yourself, it is ok to release the fat, picture your self standing on the scale with the number that you want to see, repeating or visualizing this number everyday until time for you to step on the scale again. Self talk can be as strong an asset as the food, exercise, and food tracking
When I get the urge to grab something to snack on, I remember a saying I learned through Positive Changes: "Appetite (craving) is of the mind; hunger is of the body." In other words, if my stomach isn't growling or empty, then my urges stem for a mental or emotional desire. That has been very helpful for me.
Positive Changes is an "hypnosis" program. I participated in the Beaverton, Oregon center.
