Hypnosis for Weight Loss
I have to share a funny story and it happened in my office with a client who I work with who uses hypnosis for weight loss. Actually, thousands of my clients have come to me for this same reason. Anyway, I was in my office and I overheard someone in my reception area say, "I don't care what you tell me, using hypnosis for weight loss is a bunch of crap." Hmmm, that's not something any client at my office has said before. I looked out and saw my client had come with a friend, my assumption, and she was surely not there for moral support. Regardless, I love it when I meet one of the many skeptics that unfortunately still exists, and there are many. I say unfortunately because they are still misinformed as to what hypnosis is and the tremendous benefits it offers for so many issues including hypnosis for weight loss.
As I entered the reception area, walking past my office manager Nancy who was sitting at her desk, I reached out my hand and said, "Hi, I'm Tom Nicoli. I don't believe we've ever met." Though an outspoken non-believer about hypnosis for weight loss she seemed nice enough and shook my hand and replied," I'm Lisa, nice to meet you." I sat down between Lisa and Jill, the client I was to see next, and I said," Hi Lisa, I see you know something the thousands of people I've worked with don't know, hypnosis for weight loss is crap." With this I smiled and she got that caught with her hand in the cookie jar look. I said, "Lisa, it's okay. You are like most people who still really don't know the truth about hypnosis, especially when it comes to hypnosis for weight loss. Actually, what most people think as to the way hypnosis for weight loss works really is crap." That made Lisa feel a little more comfortable, though she like Jill, now seemed puzzled.
"You see," I continued, "Most people think they can use hypnosis for weight loss and it's the hypnosis that releases the fat from their body. This isn't the case. Using your words, that's crap. When we use hypnosis for weight loss we help the person change their feelings, thoughts and behaviors about food and to be more active, which is what everyone knows is needed for the body to do what it can do to release fat, lose weight. So you see, using hypnosis for weight loss is only a part of the total process but without it, weight loss is a conscious struggle and a losing battle for almost all people."
Now I could see the look of revelation… that "Oh, I see" look in Lisa's eyes. And I could also see the smirk Jill had as if to say, "See, hypnosis for weight loss isn't crap at all." This was great for Jill because of how much she is enjoying weight loss hypnosis because now she can do what she always knows she needed to do to lose weight but does it comfortably and willingly.
