Not happy with the way you are now? How come your bodyweight is entirely different from others, even how hard you try to keep fit and slender, even if you are already doing the right things?
Are you someone diagnosed with some condition believed to be the culprit for all your weight gain?
Do you undergo constant medication just so you get rid of all those unwanted pounds but still to no avail?
Are you eating the bare minimum, counting how many pounds you have to lose, or you have lost?
Do you have suicidal tendencies and depression over your current situation?
Fret not; you're not alone.
Is there a way out for you to have lasting peace and freedom from all of these?
In this episode, an HPWL graduate, Katie Orson, tells her own journey of how things were like before she joined Hypnosis.
For an athlete like her, you would think it would be easy for her to have the body she wanted.
But for many years, even when she was active in sports, things weren't easy for her where losing weight is concerned.
She had to go through everything mentioned above. One can just imagine what a struggle it must have been to go through all of those at such a young age and find no hope and solution.
But then Hypnosis came, and that's what makes all the difference.
Where before she was all tied up to this diet mentality and exercise thing that controlled her and not making any progress, today, she's all making empowered choices on what she wants to eat and being present with how she feels at the moment and not really restricting herself from eating what she feels and wants to eat at the moment.
In fact, for the longest time that nothing happened to her weight loss journey, this time around she's starting to fall off the weight she used to have. But not so much because she is exercising or whatnot; but because the mindset shift around food and in many things that she's doing and thinking is doing its work. And that is, thanks to Hypnosis.
"You might be someone that can accomplish it in eight weeks, like, it's gonna be different for everyone. You just have to do your best to go in with an open mind and know that whatever happens, you're bettering yourself, even if it's not five huge steps forward. Like, you're better off than you were when you started. That's all that matters." - Katie Orson
