    Wasn't sure where to post this so sorry if in the wrong place

    Has anyone tried hypnotherapy? If so what happened and more importantly - did it work? I'm scared of giving it a go as I would hate to be powerless and not in control of my actions - I was hoping someone would tell me that that was a fallacy and I would still have some modicum of control over the basics!!

    I am getting desperate - I can't seem to stick to any diet. My mind is playing tricks on me and I find it relatively easy to rationalise my size as being OK if I want something to eat - then regret it as soon as I'm done stuffing my fat face:break_diet: :cry::cry::cry:.

    I'm 5' 7" and a size 14 but my weight classification is obese!! :confused: :cry: There is nothing wrong with being a size 14/16/18 etc - it looks great on other people - but I am not happy in my own skin and there-in lies the problem

    Thanks for any help you can give me

    I've been. Its not like he has you strutting round the room like a chicken.

    Its more of a deep relaxation state in which you can modify your behaviour.

    I couldn't go back as moved away and travelling was too far.

    A bit, the compulsion to eat excessively wasn't as strong. There was a lot of visualisation involved too so I was beginning to feel thinner even though I hadn't lost that much, and beginning to feel a bit more in control.

    Very Paul McKenna actually.

    Hey Toots, also try Glenn Harrold. I bought his cd on ebay following advice from a friend. His voice is nowhere near as smooth as Paul McKenna's but there is definitely something happening as Easter is causing me no issues at all, despite there being 10 Easter eggs in the house - none of them are calling me in the slightest!! :giggle:

    Oooh, thanks!! Will try Amazon. At least this way if I get the urge to cluck like a chicken it will be in the comfort of my own home ;)

    thanks again,

    I copied them onto my computer, then burnt a CD that has:

    * Paul McKenna
    * Glenn Harrold x 2
    * Weightloss free hypnosis

    so I just play it on the dvd player as I go to sleep. I also have it on a cheap ipod. I am sleeping so much better, waking much more relaxed. Will see how the weight thing goes! ;)

    Cool - 2 birds one stone - could do with being a bit more relaxed and sleeping better.

    Have just ordered from Amazon so hopefully it should be here next week

    Thanks again, ladies

    Thanks

    Well, Glenn Harold CD arrived on thursday and I started using it that night

    Night 1 - listened all the way through and had a great night's sleep

    Nights 2 & 3 - fell asleep about 10 minutes in and slept like a babby!! All night with only 2 loo trips - that is NOT like me at all. I wonder if it still works when you're asleep :eek:

    Started Cambridge on wednesday and I can honestly say that this is the EASIEST it has ever been. Not sure if it is the CD or the fact that I only have 2 weeks until my holidays which has put the fear of God into me. (Didn't think I would be able to go so didn't diet - one of our party has broken their foot but has been given the all clear to go on holiday)

    Whatever is is, I feel happy, relaxed, rested and in control. That can only be a good thing - I don't care what the reason is I feel FAB

    Oh, yes - I have always been quite sceptical about things like this but am now a convert!!! I feel happier and calmer all around.

    Have tried some holiday clothes on - non of them fitted last week and now the majority do!!! Woohoo!!

    All I can say is to keep listening - even falling asleep five mins after it starts, the words will sink and they will help :0clapper:

    Still loving it, still feeling much more rested when I wake up. Because of the pain from my back, I only sleep for about 4 hours, but now I just plug in my MP3 player and drift off again straight away - it's fab!! :cool:
