Woman looking at her bum in the mirrorHow many times have you asked that question? How often do you scrutinise your appearance in the changing room mirror, focusing your attention on those troublesome areas of your body? There’s nothing like a shopping expedition to make you feel bad about yourself.

You, no doubt, are very familiar with those particular set of negative feelings, the despair, disappointment and frustration that have you reaching for soothing comfort food, when you realise that there is a distinct possibility that you may have gained another dress size. On and on it goes, a cycle that sometimes seems impossible to break. You may ask yourself in those uncomfortable and somewhat defeating moments, why is it so difficult to lose weight, and keep it off?

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss with the Virtual Gastric Band offers a solution. The Virtual Gastric Band program is designed to change eating habits and behaviours at a deep subconscious level. The subconscious is the true ‘healer’ and the ultimate powerhouse when it comes to lasting and permanent change. Trying to lose weight with willpower and conscious intent is extremely hard, especially if your subconscious mind is not in agreement, it will sabotage your best efforts each and every time.

Unfortunately the subconscious will not relinquish its hold until it believes that a new weight loss program is in your best interest. The subconscious has an important job to do, and that is to keep you safe and alive, the old default programme that is presently running in the background was installed for a specific reason as a response to past conditions, so it needs to be ‘sold’ on an alternative that is in alignment with your conscious intent to be fit, healthy and slim. The subconscious is an obedient servant, does not discern between right and wrong, good or bad, fat or slim, and it certainly does not have a sense of humour!

Just imagine what it would feel like to be in control all the time. Imagine walking into a changing room, trying on that dream dress in your perfect size, and it fitting like a glove, envisage looking in the mirror and the only thoughts that come to mind are ‘doesn’t my bum look great in this’ and feeling that incredible sense of accomplishment and well-being.

Now visualise yourself buying that gorgeous dress (you know the one that looked particularly good on other people) and then making your way to the food hall to buy a healthy dinner, breezing past the cakes, chocolates, crisps, all those fattening foods that held you captive to their charms in the past, and feeling complete indifference, they are not even on your radar.

Because now you’ve moved on with the full realisation, that there is no sugary, sickly or fattening food that could make you feel remotely better than how you feel in this precise moment. Nothing compares, or comes vaguely close to the feelings of empowerment, control, confidence, vitality and self love that you have right now for yourself. You know without a shadow of a doubt, that you would not trade in despair, hopelessness and depression for all the chocolate in Belgium. Not a chance.

This is your life, live it to the fullest.
