Frustrated at not being consistent with your diet plan? Are you still in that hamster wheel cycle of losing now and gaining weight later? Does it seem like an endless struggle for you?

That’s probably because the more you’re attached to something, the more you get disappointed every time you fail.

In this episode, Tina, an Hypnosis for Permanent Weight Loss graduate, shares her experience of being so obsessed with her body weight issues that things magnify her struggles. She ends up frustrated, even with how hard she tried losing weight. But when she found out about Hypnosis, that’s when things started transforming. For her, this is what freedom looks like — choosing what is good for you because that is how your body feels about it. It’s not about how bad or good the food is. It’s making a decision based on what you want and what your body feels it wants and needs. It’s about confidence in knowing you are better, even with or without it.

“Just stop the craziness. It’s so freeing and accessible to people that if you want to make the change, you can, and you just have to believe in the process, believe in the program, and find the means to do it. And, get out of that hamster wheel cycle, that diet mentality.”
