Weight loss hypnosis-Giving your body a voice 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and related journal assignment will help you to start listening to your body once again. Over time we learn to ignore the messages our body sends us. Hypnosis for weight loss can help us get back in touch with our body's needs. 

Weight loss hypnosis-Emotional eating

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment can help you to begin to address the emotions related to overeating. Emotions are a part of our lives. Emotional eating has become a catch phase, yet every aspect of our lives is emotional. Much of what we do is habitual or robotic. Thoughts become habits. Feelings become habits. Behaviors become habits. Overeating to manage emotions can become a habit.

Weight loss hypnosis-Feeling full 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and related journal assignment can support you to tune into feeling full. Do you sometimes wonder "am I full yet?" and are you ever surprised to suddenly find yourself stuffed and uncomfortable? If you have been dieting for sometime you may have lost touch with the signals of your body. In an attempt to lose weight many people ignore hunger signals, put off eating or try to fill up on low calorie/low nutrient drinks and "food.

Weight loss hypnosis-Portions 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment focuses on portions.The portions that we may enjoy today may or may not be right for our future size. What is an adequate portion for someone else may or may not be right for you. What is considered to be acceptable for one food type is not considered appropriate for another food type. This weight loss mp3 session is about continuing to explore what is right for you personally.

Weight loss hypnosis-Paired associations 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment begins to look at eating habits.We will be breaking down eating associations in terms of locations. Overtime you have developed habitual behavior in terms of where you eat. This weight loss hypnosis mp3 session will bring eating locations to a new level of awareness. Once at the surface, you can examine them and begin to make new and deliberate decisions.

Weight loss hypnosis-Anger

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-in this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment we begin to look at anger. It is easy to feel angry about being overweight and it is easy to use food to manage this emotion. It is a vicious cycle that may feel outside of your control. The reality is that our emotions are easily triggered. Our emotions are stored at subconscious level and can sometimes surprise us.

Weight loss hypnosis-Natural high 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment supports people who use food to manage their emotional states. This is very common and begins in childhood. However, we want to be able to manage our states and create surges of feel good chemicals within our body without the use of foods (or other substances) that give quick artificial highs and then cause crashes in mood and energy.

Weight loss hypnosis-Boredom eating

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment addresses boredom eating and raises the question...are you hungry or bored? We all sometimes experience life as being monotonous, boring and repetitious. We experience the same old activities, thoughts and feelings day after day. Is it any wonder that people use food to add a little excitement to their lives? There are many other more appropriate ways to bring a little excitement to life.

Weight loss hypnosis-Inner control

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment addresses the fact that often it feels as though we have little control over our lives. We may feel that we are at the mercy of the needs/demands of children, spouses, work demands and/or social obligations.This feeling of being controlled by external forces can leave you throwing your hands in the air when it comes to exerting control over areas of your life that you may actually have more control over. Food and choosing to move our body are examples.

Weight loss hypnosis-Relationship with food

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss mp3 session and journal assignment addresses your relationship with food. Have you ever stopped to consider what relationship you have with food? What would you like it to be? Would you like to see food as primarily a source of fuel? Would you like to have a relationship with food that allowed you to take it or leave it?

Weight loss hypnosis-Urgency

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss mp3 and journal assignment addresses your relationship with food. Have you ever stopped to consider your relationship with food? What would you like it to be? Would you like to see food as primarily a source of fuel? Would you like to have a relationship with food that allowed you to take it or leave it? Maybe you would like to simply enjoy food at the right time, and in the right amounts? Often our relationship with food can need a little updating.

Weight loss hypnosis-Weight fluctuations

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss mp3 and journal assignment addresses weight fluctuations, which are a natural and normal occurrence. Unfortunately, we expect our bodies to maintain an exact weight over the years. As we age our metabolism changes, we have transitions such as moving into puberty, childbirth and menopause. Yet we seem to forget that our bodies respond to the stress of transitions and require new levels of care.

Weight loss hypnosis-Overeating

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses over eating. Compulsive overeating can occur for no obvious reason. Absent minded mindless eating in front of the TV, eating while bored, nibbling while on the phone or gorging at the computer. Before you know it you have consumed larger portions then you consciously were aware. Over time people can become compulsive in their eating behavior as a way to sooth feelings and offer the self comfort

Weight loss hypnosis-Commitment

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment will help you increase your commitment. You will learn that in order to build your commitment to health weight loss it is important to boost the gratitude and your have for your body. Waiting to love and appreciate your body until it is the ideal weight makes no sense. Withholding respect from your body until it is exactly as you would like it to be results in negative feeling and sabotaging behavior.

Weight loss hypnosis-Sensual eating

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment supports you to form new sensual eating habits. Eating brings us pleasure. There is no point in deny the fact that food can elicit very pleasant feelings and sensations. Wanting to give ourselves pleasure is natural and normal. Giving ourselves pleasure is a form of offering ourselves a soothing and loving experience. Most of what we do is driven by the need to either avoid pain or create pleasure in one form or another.

Weight loss hypnosis-Non-scale victories

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 addresses non scale victories. It is common for many people to weigh themselves on a daily basis and to participate in “weigh in’s.” People create many rituals around weighing. Weighing routines cause plenty of negative anticipation and shame for most dieters. This fixation on numbers tends to decrease motivation.Weighing allows us to be aware of milestones but rarely serves as a positive motivator. More often it is becomes an excuse to “start over on Monday.”

Weight loss hypnosis-One helping

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses helpings. Who gets to decide how many helpings you get to have? Who gets to decide how big those portions will be? You do, ultimately. However creating new mindsets around food always requires a plan, because old programs run so deep.  Unfortunately the old programs clearly do not work or portions/servings and helpings would not be such a burning issue with diet plans and programs. We know that when it comes to bodies and food, one size does not fit all, nor should it.

Weight loss hypnosis-Depriving is not love

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses depriving yourself. Depriving is not loving our body. How does it feel when we deprive ourselves? Usually we are setting ourselves up for failure when we withhold for long period of time. We may manage well for a few days but sooner or later something inside of use will build the need.When we deprive ourselves we set up binging conditions. Withholding often leads to binge eating, then self recrimination and then a movement back to being restrictive. It is a vicious cycle that requires plenty of energy and is ultimately demoralizing.

Weight loss hypnosis-Healthy snacks

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses planning healthy snacks. Planning healthy delicious snacks in order to achieve a healthy and slimmer body require a commitment to planning. Does this necessarily mean counting calories and weighing food? Not necessarily. Is it about depriving yourself forever of food you really love? No, certainly not. Planning delicious snacks that are also healthy simply takes a little bit of planning. 

Weight loss hypnosis-Restorative sleep

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses sleep. Can you support your weight loss efforts through programming natural deep sleeps? There is evidence that shows a correlation between getting good nights sleep and maintaining a healthy weight. Research is beginning to suggest that how well we sleep is related to the chemicals/hormones in our bodies. This should not be a surprise to anyone. We know that a chronic lack of sleep impacts our ability to think clearly and negatively impacts our physical energy levels.

Weight loss hypnosis-Excuses

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses excuses. In order to release old excuses we need to become aware of them. It can become very easy to make excuses when you are working to create a healthier and slimmer body. But then, it is not unusual for people to make excuses in many other areas of their lives as well. So it may be worthwhile to ask, why do we make excuses? Often there are limiting beliefs at play which negatively impact thinking in a way that sabotage weight loss efforts.

Weight loss hypnosis-Sneaky eating 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses sneaky eating. Sneaky eating behind closed doors or feeling ashamed about eating happens often when there is a history of binge eating. A need to hide food or to eat in private is more common then you might realize. Many people create little rituals around their consumption of “bad foods.” Sneaky eating can cause a range of emotions from anticipation, to enjoyment of the ritual steps, to anger, shame and guilt.

Weight loss hypnosis-Self-deception

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses the fact that It is often easier for us to be honest with other people then it is for us to be honest with ourselves. Interesting isn’t it? But the truth is that we deceive ourselves, tell ourselves little white lies, placate ourselves, gloss over important information, delete and ignore little internal signals all the time. Self deception is human nature. It is easy to put our heads in the sand and pretend. However the weight of the little untruths adds up. Self deception becomes a heavy burden to carry. This is especially the case when it comes to our health.

Weight loss hypnosis-Mindful eating 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses mindful eating. What does it mean to you to eat mindfully? Is this a concept that is new to you? It may well be, simply because there is actually very little that we do in a mindful manner. If you think about it most of our day is spent multi-tasking in one manner or another. It is not unusual for people to eat while they read, watch television, work, drive, work or walk around. Few people simply sit and savour their meals in a purposeful fashion. More often eating is a rush and frenzied activity.

Weight loss hypnosis-Inner love talk

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses inner dialogue. When it comes to weight loss we all tend to have a running commentary going on in our heads. Often the internal dialogue is fairly damaging to the self esteem. In addition, the inner talk often gets in the way of weight loss progress. Does any of the below sound familiar to you?

“I am fat.”
“I hate my muffin top.”
“I am embarrassed about my weight.”

Weight loss hypnosis-Hydration

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses water. We know that water is good for our skin and our brain. But what does water do for you in terms of weight loss? Water plays an important role in supporting liver and kidney function. The productivity of these fat metabolizing organs needs to be taken seriously.

Weight loss hypnosis-Hunger signals

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses hunger signals. Ignoring hunger signals is common when losing weight has become a driven, focused activity. Filling up with water to “fool” the body into feeling full and filling up with fluff foods that provide little nutrition is common. Over time, we lose sight of the signals our bodies send us. We receive what feels like “mixed signals.” However, if we remember that our body has a very natural wisdom we can begin to tune in once again.

Weight loss hypnosis-Late night eating 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses late night eating. How do you feel about eating at night time? There are a variety of thoughts on the subject. Some people are adamant that eating after supper is a no-no. Other people enjoy a snack before bed while others over-eat beyond the needs of their body late at night.

Weight loss hypnosis-Hurt feelings

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses feeling hurt. Iit is easy for most people to view behaviors as habits. That is to say, what we “do” with repetition over time becomes second nature or a habituated response. However, our feelings become automatic responses as well. Hurt feelings are often closely associated with poor choices in food. 

Weight loss hypnosis-Grocery shopping

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment will help you realize that almost anything can become a mindset and ideally we want to choose mindsets that will best suite us and move us forward. Many people think of grocery shopping as something that just has to be done and suffered through. Most people do not enjoy grocery and in fact some actually they dread it. How do you personally feel about going to the store to buy food? Is it something that just has to be done and so you get it over with as quickly as possible? Wouldn’t it be great to look forward to your trips to the grocery store?

Weight loss hypnosis-Drive thrus

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses drive-thrus. how would you feel being able to just drive right on by the drive thru without thinking twice? Some people are able to do this very naturally. They do not even notice the signs and have absolutely no internal reaction to the advertising. These people drive to and from work without giving fast food any consideration at all. These people have no idea the sheer number of fast food drive thru signs that they pass. It may be registered on an other then conscious level but there is no dis-empowering association built in.

Weight loss hypnosis-Cravings 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses food cravings. how important is learning to manage cravings when it comes to moving into a healthier and slimmer body? Some people have very little cravings while other have challenges with cravings when they are stressed out or having hormonal surges. Many people who have created good habits around eating and regular exercise still fight cravings. Although they are making good strides towards moving into their weight loss goals, they still periodically must manage the “demon” of strong cravings for foods that truly do not serve their goals. How we mange our cravings becomes a patterned response

Weight loss hypnosis-Loving body

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment focuses on loving your body. How important is it to you to develop a better relationship with your body? Most people are not particularly happy with their body. Most people do not like to see themselves naked and prefer that other people do not either. It is not unusual for people to create negative habituated thoughts about their body as a whole or simply to dislike parts of the body. These body parts are unloved and often poorly treated. Thoughts, feelings and behaviors directed to the body create an internal atmosphere that interferes with a healthy nurtured state.

Weight loss hypnosis-Food aversion

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses food aversion. Would being able to create an aversion to a certain food support you in your efforts to create a healthier and slimmer body? Learning to use aversion is another tool. Why do we need a tool like this? We receive hundreds of external messages daily from big name franchises that work hard to convince us that salty, greasy and sugary stuff is "food." People develop an automatic, second nature response to "food" that creates obesity, heart disease and diabetes. The response is to desire food that does not serve our health and well being and only serves the financial bottom line of multi-million dollar industries.

Weight loss hypnosis-Leaving food 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses leaving food on your plate. Do you usually leave food on your plate? Most people eat every little morsel on their plate, whether they are still hungry or not. Think back to your last meal, did you finish it all or did you leave a little? What are your beliefs about leaving food on the plate? What does food left on the plate say about you? How do you feel when you have prepared a meal and a guest has left food on their plate?

Weight loss hypnosis-Shame 

Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 session and journal assignment addresses shame and weight. Shaming is often used to keep people in line and to shape behavior. We see this in homes, on the playground and in the work environment. The use of shaming begins at an early age, usually with well intentioned but stressed amateur parents. Shame is often still used in adulthood as a means to “motivate” people to shape up. A little pat on someone’s bulging tummy, a little snide remark at a second helping, a raised eyebrow during “weigh-ins” are all examples of subtle shaming.
