Independence Group Hypnotherapy How and Why Hypnosis Helps Smokers Reduce Smoking

I share office space with a group of hypnotherapists who specalize in helping people lose weight.  I have always focused my practice on helping people quit smoking because I personally  know how difficult it is to stop the smoking habit.

Since I have never had an issue with weight I could never grasp the difficulty in eating less and exercising more.  Then I started to read some of their training materials and listening to the hypnosis and training sessions.  For the first time, I realized that for some people being over the weight that they would like to weigh is less about food and diets but simply just the eating and living habits they have developed. For others, their mind is constantly sabotaging their efforts to lose weight.

I went to Katie Evans, the creator of the weight loss program, and explained that if she would produce a DVD to go along with all her other great materials I would market the program outside the state of Washington where she has focused her weight loss program. My original goal was to market her program to other hypnotists wanting to utilize a successful weight loss program.

She agreed to videotape one of her two day seminars and suggested that I attend.  Each session started with a meditation period and ended with a short hypnosis session.  During  the first session she suggested that we would no longer be part of the CLEAN YOUR PLATE club.

As a youngster growing up on a Midwest farm, we were always told about the starving children in China and that in order to grow up to be big and strong we had to eat all the food on our plate.  I have followed that rule for a lifetime.  why wouldn't I....I was not one to argue with my Mother...especially since she could whip me at arm wrestling until I was 17.

Now here is when it starts getting interesting.  I left the Saturday DVD session and went to my favorite Seattle restaurant....The Catfish Corner....Catfish, coleslaw, corn bread muffins, collard greens, potato salad, red beans and rice, and topped it off with "Fresh" candied yams.     

Just about 2/3's of the way through the meal.....just when I was starting to feel comfortable...from out of the blue.....my unconsious mind says, "Now remember Bill you have to leave some food on your plate!"  Say What?....I am now 66 years old and never once  in my life had that thought gone through my mind.

Now here is the real kicker, I have not had a meal since the DVD week-end of January 21, 2006 in which my mind has not reminded me to leave food on the plate.

All because of one brief hypnosis weight session on how to lose weight.

Because of my experience, I realized there were many people that have never really had a serious eating problem, but they have just gotten in the habit of making poor choices when it comes to food, and not doing the things they need to do to get those pounds off. They are like a smoker, they just have the habit of doing little things that are not good for them.

They simply lack the motivation to make changes in their life.  It's the life style choices a person makes that gets them to an undesirable weight and it is the new life style choices they make that will get them to their desired weight. 

My attitude....That is Just the way it is
