I wanted to let you know that I've lost 13.5 pounds since August 12th and it has been easy peasy. I didn't start listening to the CD I bought from you on a consistent basis until that date (my appointment with you was July 20th).
I haven't even listened to the other 2 CD's I bought from you because I felt the original CD has been good enough. And I'm thrilled. But even more than that, I now feel as if I am starting a new relationship with food–one that I think is a "normal" relationship. My cravings are completely gone, I eat mostly fruits and veggies and, more important, I now know when to stop…at the satisfied level instead of the full to miserable level—and it doesn't even seem to be a conscious decision. I seem to do it automatically. My intake of food has probably been cut to a quarter to a third of what I normally ate. I just had lunch with a friend of mind who has known me for 45 years and knows of all my weight issues all those years. We went to claim Jumper and I ordered a cheeseburger with fries and a coke. I consciously ordered something that I would normally eat at a restaurant like that to see what my reaction would be. It is the first time that I've gone out to a restaurant since I started listened consistently to your CD. I've been eating fruits and veggies with very little meat and other types of food, following Joel Fuhrman's plan closely although not in a deliberate manner. When I got my food, I ate one half of the cheeseburger and recognized that I was satisfied with that, however, I consciously made the decision to eat the other half. And I only ate perhaps a fifth of the fries (and there was a huge pile of fries that filled over half of the plate). I love French fries and always eat them all and I always leave a clean plate. The food was good but it was just food, and I just did not want all the fries–they did not appeal to me as they normally would have. I controlled the food–it did not control me. This is extremely unusual for me. .. normally I would have eaten the entire meal and never even noticed that I had eaten it all until I saw that my plate was empty and then would have wanted more—and would have ordered dessert, too. My friend noticed I had eaten very few of the fries and wondered if they were not good but didn't comment about it until I started telling her about hypnosis. I gave her your name and told her about where I discovered you and just a few minutes ago while writing this I got an email from her that said she had googled you, found that the Groupon for your $29 package was still available and ordered it for her and her husband.
