2 months ago Donna from Kempston, Bedford, came to see me feeling lethargic and uncomfortable in her own skin. She had a gastric band fitted through hypnosis to lose weight. Here’s an update on how she’s doing.
Donna knew that she was eating too much; she never left any food on her plate and she finished her husband’s meals. With a stressful job she was also rewarding herself with half a bottle of red wine each night. With an eating disorder and a fear of self sabotage she had battled with her weight. She had no energy and didn’t think that she would be able to lose weight as she suffers from fibromyalgia. A further barrier, she thought, was a hip injury that makes exercising difficult.
Donna wanted to be slimmer to have more energy, for her health and to be able to wear whatever she wanted. She had a wardrobe of clothes that she wanted to get back into.
Post hypnosis weight loss update
Donna’s gastric band was fitted on 1st October, and she checked in with us on 1st December, just 2 months later. She has lost 1 and a half stone, but she has also lost a total of 16 inches across her body. She was a size 18 when she originally came in, and now she is a size 14. The figures tell one side of the story, the other side of the story is that Donna feels different; she feels energised.
So much have Donna’s habits changed, she went on a 2 week, all inclusive holiday and actually lost weight and inches; this would previously have been unheard of. Donna’s plate would once have been piled high with food, but now she knows when she doesn’t need any more, and can sit in front of people while they are eating without being bothered by it. Even the red wine was left after it didn’t taste as nice as it used to. Exercise has been added into her life, and Donna walks regularly and was getting up at 7am each morning on holiday to go for a swim.
The slimmer Donna has found this to be a completely life changing experience, and part of a long term plan. She has more energy, feels happier and so much better. The fibromyalgia, which Donna thought would hinder weight loss, is now more manageable. The virtual gastric band works for weight loss, and there are so many positive side effects.
