Check in Point….
Although I have not checked-in for a while, by no means does that indicate any lessened resolve in my commitment. To date, I am happy to report that I have lost 22 lbs and although I admit that I had hoped to lose more by now, I have to remind myself that this is a process.
Not only am I changing my eating patterns, I am also re-establishing new life patterns of how I eat, when I eat and how I exercise.
The whole purpose of doing this is for greater health and well being, so I intend to do this in a way that I will never have to revisit this issue ever again. So it is definitely a process and part of the process is to give myself permission to experience minor setbacks and forgive myself when it happens.
Surprisingly in doing so, it is far easier to get back on the proverbial horse and continue down this path. No longer are the days of beating myself up about the fact that I have an incredulous sweet tooth and sometimes give into the temptation of my beloved Red Vines or Snickers bar.
After all, I’m human and to be human is to err.
This is where my hypnotherapy work has made all the difference.
Like most, in the past when I found myself giving into my weakness, I chastised myself harshly and allow myself to be defined by that momentary action. Inevitably in doing so, I would conclude that I was a failure and these negative emotions would trigger me to eat more sugar in an attempt to pacify the emotions. Comfort food. It was a vicious cycle.
Through hypnotherapy, I have been able to uncover the reasons for the emotions that were driving this behavior.
Once I did and had a firm understanding of this, I was able to transform these negative feelings. As a result, I am far more forgiving of myself when this comes up. I now experience these occurrences far less than I use to, hence the 22 lb. weight loss. While I have more to go, I have no doubt that I will reach my end goal.
Dare I say, I am actually enjoying this process of transformation. Connecting the dots as to why I use to act out in this way has enlightened me and allowed me to gain a far better understanding of myself in a new way. Its really a cool process. So, stay tuned for more updates.
They will be coming until I have reached the finish line!!! And certainly, if I can do it, so can YOU!!!
