Re: Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Yes, I have tried hypnosis and I believe that it worked for awhile. Once I was hypnotized I lost 6 pounds over the course of 2 months, which for me was very good as I had been at a plateau for a year!
I was skeptical of the process but decided to try it anyway. I don't remember details of the session itself other than wishing I had dressed warmer because I was cold. I vaguely remember the lady talking about the color red and wondering what that was all about.
TWo days after the session I was in the cafeteria at work and a gentleman walked by with a bright red shirt on, and suddenly my appetite was gone! I am not kidding, it is for real. I tested this theory several times after that with the same results. That effect lasted for 2 weeks and gradually lessened.
I was given CD's to listen to and was instructed to listen to them twice a day. Initially I did, but gradually (as with all my other weight loss plans) I backed off and eventually stopped listening and of course the weight loss stopped.
Whether the weight loss stopped because I stopped listening to the tapes, or because the hypnosis wore off or what, I'm not sure.
Whether I was really hypnotised or just believed I was, there was a noticeable change in my eating behavior, for awhile. I've never gone back for another session, although I can go free for a lifetime now. I've toyed with the idea but I've always chose to try to "do it on my own"---until lately I've plateued again and I need some help! Thanks for the idea I think I will look into when the next session is!
