I have always had weight issues. I have tried every diet, lost
weight and then gained it again plus a little extra. My other problem was wine. I would open the bottle at teatime, always just intending to have the one glass,
and by bedtime the bottle would be empty and I am ashamed to say that another was sometimes
opened. I would feel terribly guilty the next day, until teatime,
and then I would open the wine.
summer, just before my hols, I weighed myself and it was not good. I was in a vicious circle of eating, drinking
and then eating a little bit more. I felt quite desperate as I did not want to get any bigger and I also worried
about the unhealthy effect my lifestyle was having on my body and the bad example I was setting to my two young
had hypnotherapy for a flying phobia and that had worked really well, so I went on the Internet and found
Julie. I emailed Julie to see if she could help, and after speaking
to her and reading all the testimonials I decided to give it a go. I rang Julie whilst still on holiday and made
an appointment for as soon as I got back.
so nice and put me at ease straight away. She listened patiently to me about what I wanted and needed to change
in my life. Being hynotised was a nice
and relaxing experience. I had 3 sessions fortnightly and the
transformation has been amazing. It's weird really as you don’t necessarily feel very
different at first, but then you realise that different foods are appealing and that foods that you have loved
are no longer tempting you. I have also found that drinking water
has become totally normal to me, I always have a bottle in my bag and my water filter
in the fridge. I also take more exercise, running at least twice a week.
of all my alcohol consumption has reduced dramatically. I can now
just have a glass without finishing the bottle. I also alternate with a glass of water if I go out and I only
tend to drink at weekends. Through doing this I am sleeping so much
better and in general feel like a new person. I feel totally in
control of my weight and have lost to date 1 stone 5 Ibs.
Julie has been a very rewarding experience, one I would definitely recommend.
