Change Your Mind To Change Your Weight

Have you ever wondered why you struggle to lose weight? Let’s face it – You know that you should change your eating habits. You know that you should get more exercise, drink more water, and get more sleep. So why don’t you do it? Are you just too lazy? Obviously not, or you would not have gone on any diet nor tried any type of exercise program. I guess you just don’t have any willpower. Oh wait, that can’t be true either. I mean, just look at all the things you have accomplished in your life. You learned how to walk, talk, read, write, do arithmetic, cook, clean, ride a bike, drive a car, and take care of your family! That’s a pretty impressive list. So what is the problem with losing weight and getting fit? The answer is easier than you think. You just need to change your mind to change your weight!

Say what? I’m not talking about the mere act of deciding to do something differently. You see, you may not know this, but your conscious mind does NOT control the paths you follow in life. Your subconscious mind does. That is the mind that you must change to achieve success in changing in your weight. Consciously, you can make decisions to accept or reject any piece of information presented to you, but your subconscious does not have that ability. It can only receive and accept everything that your five senses detect. Stop and think for a minute about every negative comment you have heard in your life: you’re not strong enough; you will never be able to do that; your genetics will keep you from ever being pretty or handsome or skinny; nobody will ever want to marry you; you’re not good enough to be successful.

It’s kind of sad, isn’t it? This type of negativity stays with you, and as a form of protection, your subconscious mind directs your actions towards safety. It prevents you from taking actions that it perceives will lead to heartbreaking pain.

What if I told you there is a safe and pain free way to change that? Would you be interested enough to check it out? There is a way to tear down the roadblocks your subconscious has built. You can develop new thought patterns. You will be able to synchronize the two sides of your mind. You will gain control of your actions!

Can you see yourself standing in front of the mirror admiring the new you? What’s that – no flab flapping under your arms when you move, no roll around your middle? Awesome!

So what’s the secret? Well, it really isn’t a secret. This method of changing your mind has been around for over sixty years, and it is even endorsed and practiced by the medical profession. I know you’ve heard of it. I am talking about hypnosis. Now, don’t start envisioning those stupid stage shows, where somebody starts acting like a chicken or barking like a dog. Those are strictly what they seem – stage shows! With hypnosis, you will still be in control, but you will be in a relaxed state that allows you to be receptive to suggestions. Imagine being calm and relaxed listening to a soothing voice that is suggesting healthy thought patterns to you, and giving you actionable ideas to achieve weightloss. You will find yourself behaving differently and realizing that this is due to the hypnotic suggestion, and you will be pleased.

I highly recommend hypnosis, not just because it works, but because it worked for me. You can go to a doctor that practices hypnotherapy, but that can get really expensive. If the therapist is really good, you will probably spend a couple hundred dollars or more for one session. Some people have learned to do auto-hypnosis. I couldn’t get the hang of it myself. What worked for me was a series of CD’s produced by a professional. I was able to use them at home at my convenience.  Another nice feature is that I was able to re-use them whenever I struggled with any particular issue.

Don’t just take my word for it. Check it out for yourself. Hypnosis is very safe and extremely effective at helping you rid those negative obstacles in your subconscious that are preventing you from losing weight. You’ll be really glad you did!
