I have never tried hypnosis but this is great food for thought. Thanks for posting.


I recall hearing about "Think Yourself Thin" when they ran Paul McKenna's program on TV. At the time, I wondered if it would work, but I didn't really watch it with much conviction (I guess I just wasn't into it at the time). I also understand that hypnosis works best on people who are more sensitive to it. Given my current weight loss journey, it would be great to be able to watch the video and see if it helps. An in-person session with a hypnotist might be kind of neat, but to be honest, I would wait until I got a recommendation from someone who'd had some success before spending my money on a specific hypnotist. Maybe he/she could also help me get motivated to keep up with the laundry? ;-)

Thanks for posting this!!


This is a great shift in paradigm. For me it speaks to the idea of letting go of any guilt attached to past unhealthy behaviours and/or unrealistic expectations for the future. Celebrate every healthy decision you make as a step in the right direction, no matter how small.
