Yes, as part of a targeted weight management program. I did find it helpful to focus on the reasons for the behaviors I was trying to change

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

I started therapy last year and had to stop to have back surgery. Although my time with the therapist was short, She helped me with a major insight into my binge eating. I have just restarted therapy with a different therapist this time. I'm excited to work with her.

No, but the more I read the more I think it's a great idea, particularly for people who have gained and lost the same pounds again and again. Mental outlook is hard to change on your own sometimes.

Hello Melissa,

In conjunction with my private lesson in DeCoix Mime we applied positive reinforcement therapy. It is a process of stopping one's story and dealing with it in positive way.

After especially tramatic events I sought council and my Mime teacher was the one who offered to help. We did the positive reinforcement therapy and my despair was turned to such a dynamic new perspective that I was happy to move forward with my life. I believe mind, body and spirit being healthy are all necessary for our total wellness. The tools of therapy are building foundations for all applications including weight loss.

"'Enough' is a feast. Buddhist proverb

Hello, Sparkers! We are working on an article about weight loss therapy and we're wondering: Has anyone here ever used a weight loss therapist to help with issues surrounding weight loss/wellness? If so, we'd love to get your input about your experience. Feel free to respond here or send me a SparkMail!

Thanks!
Melissa
