If you have had a weight issue for any length of time you probably have tried just about anything. The grapefruit diet, the subway diet, Atkins, weight watchers, various potions, drinks and bars or my favorite (UGG) the cabbage soup diet. They all seemed to work, at least for a while that is. But sooner or later you got tired of eating grapefruit or whatever it was and you drifted off the program. Chances are like many people you also discovered that along the way you picked up even more weight that when you started trying to lose.

My father in law used to say, “If the only tool in your tool kit is a hammer then every problem looks like a nail.” Achieving your ideal weight and staying there is a complex problem. Why would you only use one tool?

A professional coach will help you to identify your goals and make sure they are realistic. She will look beyond you immediate weight issue to assure you are creating a balanced life. A coach will hold you accountable without judgment and help you to make decisions that are in your best interest. Working with a coach weekly will help you stay motivated. When you get off track your coach will be able to gently but firmly guide you back. Choose your coach wisely. It needs to be someone you feel comfortable with and can relate to. Interview several before choosing.

Add hypnosis to the mix and you will have a recipe sure to win a blue ribbon. Studies have shown that by adding hypnosis to diet and exercise could double your weight loss.

Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness during which our subconscious mind is more open and receptive to suggestions that are given. It is a very natural state that we drift in and out of many times a day. Do you ever daydream? Or maybe a really good speaker or preacher or something on TV has mesmerized you? These are all good examples the hypnotic state.

Your hypnotist is a guide who works with your imagination to help you achieve your goals. Think of it as adding new programs to your computer. No longer will you rely only on your willpower, being disappointed when it lets you down. Hypnosis is a tool that can help alter your behavior patterns. Instead of automatically picking up that bagel or chocolate cake or whatever your weakness is, your subconscious mind will have a new program running. With hypnosis you will add a whole new collection of programs or messages to run. Your new programs will have messages encouraging you to eat the right amount of food at just the right time and even enjoying exercise. With regular use your new programs will override the old.

Sure you can dance on one leg but isn’t it easier on two? You will still be the one doing the work (eating right and exercising) but with coaching and hypnosis in your toolbox you will have what you need to achieve your ideal weight and keep it.
