Dear Seeker Of A Real & Genuine Weight Loss
Are you fed up with trying and failing over and over
again? Perhaps you've tried other weight loss programs
in the Amarillo Odessa Midland Dallas TX area. Do
you feel you "just need real weight loss right
now" - plain and simple? Are
you finally in enough pain and suffering in your looks,
your body, and around other people to do something real
about it? If you've ever hated seeing yourself in a
then you've probably tried one thing after another. It's
hard to build up hope on something new that's
supposed to help you lose weight. Maybe you're
afraid to let yourself down again. You might be
worried "what if it doesn't work for me?", or
thought to yourself "well.. here we go again..",
or "what will so-and-so think of me if I fail again?",
or "is it even really worth it to take new action
toward my goals?" Perhaps
it's not you, but the approach that's failing. What
if you truly understood, and could change, the
real reasons you sabotage yourself?...
what if you could get your life back?... What
if your changes could be more automatic?...
if.. you found the strength ... (not will power, but
...inner strength / automatic / subconscious.. makes
your new skills automatic). got to the root of your
self-sabotage. What if you got to understood what it is
that's been stopping you from staying thin. And, knew
you could do it... ... (It's not like you don't already
know....) Have you ever wondered what you might be
capable of if you knew how to tap into what is inside
you? What if, this time, you knew that [Hook, big

from a seasoned professional. -- [Stretch benefits - how

[H4~?] Weight Loss Success Tip #1 - You Will
Need To Be Emotionally Honest With Yourself - Pain You
already know the pain and hassle that makes you want to
change. Maybe you feel uncomfortable in your clothes,
don't like the way you look, body distorted. Maybe you
can't get down on the floor to play with your kids or
grandkids, and feel like just a blob on the couch.
Perhaps you're embarrassed and feel people are staring,
noticing fat, and you can't buy the clothes and styles
you like when shopping - or have to go to the larger
size stores. -- The shame, the guilt. You
will need to face it. Be emotionally real and honest
with yourself. That's the only real place to start -
Loss Success Tip #2 - You Will Need To Believe It Is
Possible Those are good motivations
to start your successful weight loss journey.
Next, if you want real weight loss results, you will
need to believe it is possible. Or
else you won't feel like it's worth taking the action.
The good news is, it's not you.. It was the approach
that was wrong...
In order to change your results, you will need to
change your approach. You will need to learn
how to make the lasting, real changes needed to get the
results you want... Build new beliefs - change what you
believe (to be true) -- [Keep it personal, real, and
emotional - See+ Scott's list from Conf Call - eg.:] We
often put off making changes simply because we feel we
can't do it.. That "New Year's resolution, that nagging
habit we want to change, ...

Food-Based Programs Just Don't Work
don't work, and they never will"
- Remington, Fisher, & Parent
weight loss plans are
just drudgery. They leave you feeling deprived
and fighting for every half-inch of progress. And
then, when it's over - if it ever is - it's so much of
a relief that you end up backsliding, only to go back
to the way things were. Usually worse.
plans don't work over time, because:
• They cause starvation - which causes the body's weight
loss to slow down
• They don't address with how you have been sabotaging
• They are not fun and easy - If it's not fun and easy,
you won't keep doing it!
• They don't give you the real skills for a life of
thinness - how to communicate and connect with your
family and others more, how to feel romance in your
relationship again, how to handle issues of stress or
feeling safe thin, and so on...

# Complacency Crushing
Telling yourself that “it isn’t really happening” is
just placating yourself… -
Stop the “I screwed up so I might as well eat” thinking.
This happens when you have ‘slipped’ and think that
there is no point in trying any more.
“I Lost Over 47 Painful Pounds, And It Was Easy! People
eat emotionally. They have triggers. The events of your
life stress you out, then you eat. I'd figure, ‘Heck
with it, I blew the day, so I might as well eat some
more’, then I'd feel bad about it and my appearance. A
recurring cycle. I hid behind the weight - feeling the
need to layer my clothes. I just wanted to stop the ups
and downs. You're not able to see any way out. You know
what it's like.

Loss Tip # - Let It Be Easy
you think it will be hard, it will be hard. If you
believe it's easy, then it is easy.
Let It Be Easy - If you believe it will be easy, it will
be. If you don’t, then you won’t keep doing it. Make it
simple or it’s impossible. Subconscious mind will fight
you on it.
Know your weight loss enemies and how to defeat them.
Also, allow your own mind to be sealed against
negativity from yourself and others.
Do not fight your process. (That’s one of the many
reasons that diets don’t’ work...) Do enjoy your
process. Do let it be easy.
When it’s easy to do, it helps to let it fit into your

Access Resource State
“There are no un-resourceful people, only un-resourceful
states.” - NLP Presupposition
Everyone has resource states that allow them to feel
good while doing what they need to get done.
In this state of mind/body, your actions come naturally,
effortlessly. You are more relaxed and ready to do what
it takes to get success.
Finding your resource state, and learning and developing
the anchors and triggers that “bring you there” will
help you to reduce stress, sleep better, feel more
Can you imagine what that can be like for you? Can you
imagine yourself more effortless in your weight loss
"This program is what I've looked for, the support I
needed to deal with weight I had gained through
'emotional eating' during the last five years. What a
relief to find such help - I know I could do it on my
own with lots of hard work and concentration, but, wow,
this program has made it easy and actually fun. I've
lost 18 pounds and know I will continue to lose about 2
lbs a week, feeling great & eating healthy with no
cravings! That's really something and I am thrilled.

Hypnosis To Support Your Decision To Be Thin...
power of mind and imagination - *little* bit of how that
works - give lots/some examples
order to have lasting success with weight loss (or any
goal), you will need to become automatic (or
subconsciously competent) at your new skills.
Just like anything that you are good at (naturally good
at or have learned to be good at), you will need the
skills to lose weight to become automatic.
You’re not sitting there thinking, are you, that you
have to pump your heart or keep yourself breathing,
We need for your new habits and coping skills to be
automatic. The process for that is different for each
Have you ever been laughing at a funny movie? Or cried
during the sad parts of a movie or book? That is a form
of hypnosis. The emotions are very real - real tears,
real joy... And yet, the movie on the screen is fake.
But the emotions in you are real. Professional hypnosis
takes that phnomenon much further.
At the hypnosis center, you are given suggestions like:
• “You really like the foods that allow you to be thin.”
• “Fattening foods are simply not fun any more.”
• “You feel fuller from less food, enjoy your food more,
while eating less...”
What do you think would happen if you decided to agree
to those powerful suggestions?
However you chose to use the real and powerful tools of
hypnosis and your imagination, realize that...
..in hypnosis, you are actually in more control than
when you’re not.
Hypnosis is 100% safe.
Have you ever been driving your car and daydreaming a
little bit and miss a turn? Or get where you’re going
and realize, “Wow, who was driving those last few
Well, that’s normal, and it’s very much what hypnosis
You are pretty much aware of everything that’s being
said while you are in hypnosis, but you do follow each
suggestion given much more powerfully.
Just a fair warning – You should be using hypnosis only
to powerful solidify your new decision to get thin, and
for training on each new skill set, in the appropriate
Hypnosis was approved by the AMA (American Medical
Association) in 1958 as a field of medical study, and,
then in 1961, the AMA began recommending that all
medical professionals get training in hypnosis.

Hall, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, just
to name a few, and is used in every branch of the
