Motivation is Yours With Weight Loss Hypnosis

With freezing, wintry days ahead for many of us, the thought of braving the elements to get to the gym or go for a run does not sound very engaging. Maintaining the motivation to adhere to your weight loss goals when the rest of the world wants to hibernate is simple with hypnosis for weight loss.

Many us who want to get back into shape agree that motivation is especially challenging when the weather changes, so what if you could stay dedicated to your diet and exercise plan just by viewing a hypnotherapy weight loss DVD or listening to a CD? Better yet, a hypnotherapy weight loss program can ease your compulsions too.

Self-hypnosis for weight loss works simply, but effectively, by leading you to a deeply relaxed state where your unconscious can more effortlessly accept post-hypnotic suggestions, like the ones that will keep you motivated to keep on your fitness track, even in the middle of winter.

It is a known fact that if a person exercises, it will speed up his/her metabolism and boost the rate that weight is dropped. Some of the most successful hypnosis exercise motivation techniques comes from Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP. With NLP, the unconscious is programmed to use the same thought processes that are initiating a problem, to get rid of it. Said another way, the same thought processes that the unconscious utilizes to create oral compulsions and cravings could help to completely stop them! And similarly, the same processes can be used to increase your motivation to exercise.

Anchoring is an NLP method that can be used to give you a “switch” for activating feelings and behaviors. Creating an appetite hypnosis anchor works simply and effectively like this: A qualified hypnotherapy weight loss practitioner will safely direct you into a tranquil hypnotic state. Then the hypnotherapist will ask you to identify a time when you were excited and happy about anything in your life.

The point of this exercise is to remember and re-experience as many sensations as possible from numerous times in your life when you felt motivated and eager to do anything at all. Then, the hypnotherapist will ask you to anchor those feelings by simply touching two fingers together.

Next, you will be asked to visualize yourself exercising and enjoying it. As you produce this mental picture, you’ll trigger your anchor by touching those two fingers together again. When you complete this action, your unconscious will connect the feeling of excitement and eagerness from the other memory to the thought of exercising.

From this point on, any time you need to feel motivated to exercise, you can simply trigger your anchor and re-experience those same affirmative feelings that will motivate you to workout. NLP and weight loss hypnosis can even be used to dissuade behaviors, so you can easily overcome cravings. That sounds much easier and encouraging than beating yourself up for missing a workout or giving into temptation, doesn’t it?

A successful weight loss hypnosis program will also address the root cause of weight gain for many people, namely a lack of self-esteem. In a relaxed state, you can be given post-hypnotic suggestions that will develop your self-esteem as you lose more weight. The lack of self-esteem is a big reason for being overweight.

A lot of people wonder if, after trying every new diet and purchasing every piece of exercise equipment on the market, something as straight forward as weight loss hypnosis can help them. The good news is that research shows that all normal people are hypnotizable to a greater or lesser extent. However, it should be noted that people who have less than a 70 I.Q. or those who are in an active state of psychosis or with senility generally are not hypnotizable.

But for the rest of us, hypnotherapy for weight loss can actually help us look forward to eating healthily and working out. That said, the key proponent for victory in any fitness routine, whether it incorporates weight loss hypnosis or not, is wanting to attain your weight loss goals.

On a related note, that is exactly why you can not force someone to undergo weight loss hypnotherapy just by giving them suggestions. If someone is against an idea, no amount of weight loss hypnosis they hear or see will take hold. Looking to the NLP explanation above, if someone does not posses a memory of feeling motivated or positive, they can still be successful with hypnotherapy and NLP because they can envision what it would feel like if they did feel that way, and anchor those imagined feelings.

So, if you are like many of us and find your drive dwindling as the temperatures drop and the days get darker, weight loss hypnosis can help regain (or maintain) your passion for carrying out and finally achieving your fitness goals.

Succeed With Weight Loss Hypnosis

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and come to the realization, “Gee, I need to lose some weight”? Well you wouldn’t be the first, and you also wouldn’t be the first if you started a weight loss program that very day, only to have completely given up on it just a few days later. There’s a very simple reason for this, most people don’t go into weight loss programs in the right frame of mind to make it succeed. How do you get into this right frame of mind? Hypnosis!

Hypnotherapy (the use of hypnosis for therapeutic means) has shown a great deal of success in helping people lose weight, and unlike most methods it actually results in long-term weight loss. It’s of no use to lose 10lbs over three months if you put it back on again soon after. Hypnosis works where other methods fail because it connects with the subconscious mind and places suggestions that work towards to achieve your goal, in this case weight loss.

At this point you may be thinking, “I can’t afford to hire a hypnotherapist!”, and in this current economy that is more than understandable. Fortunately the internet has brought forth an entirely new genus of hypnotherapy, the hypnosis download. You can now purchase a couple of hypnosis downloads, one focusing on weight loss and the other on exercise motivation and listen to them at your convenience. The beauty of this is that you only have to make a one time payment, and on most sites you can get this sort of package for around $30.

Just imagine the inner-power that brings you. You are effectively commanding your subconscious, the most powerful part of the mind, to focus on sensible weight loss and regular exercise. That’s more than all the motivation you need to start dropping the pounds and become slim and healthy, and you’re not relying on any club, diet or “magic system” – it’s all coming from inside you!

That in essence is what hypnosis is all about. It’s giving people the power to positively change their life in anyway they wish.

When it comes to losing weight positive thinking really is what it’s all about. So as well as the regular use of hypnosis downloads there are a few simple tips I have for you that help keep you in that positive frame of mind.

Weigh Yourself Once A Week – And only once a week! Choose a day and time and only weigh yourself then. While it’s tempting to monitor your weight loss extremely regularly it’s actually counter-productive. Your weight fluctuates throughout the day and speaking from personal experience I’ve seen my weight fluctuate by 6lbs, and I weigh around 150lbs. When some people see a fluctuation like this they think they’re gaining weight and that they’ve failed the weight loss program when in actuality it’s something that happens to everyone.

Take Measurements – I’ve dealt with people who’ve been unhappy with the slow progress of their weight loss who have not even realised how much better they’ve looked just by dropping a few pounds. Good places to measure are the stomach, chest and thighs. Because exercise tones and strengthens muscle some people don’t lose as much weight as they originally wished by they lose many inches from around the stomach, chest and thighs because they’ve burned fat and replaced it with lean muscle. You can co-ordinate measuring with your weighing.

Write Out Weight Loss Goals – And put them somewhere you’ll see them everyday. Split a piece of paper in two and have a section for daily goals and long-term goals. Your daily goals might be “Do 30 minutes of exercise” and “Eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables”, these are relatively easy goals to achieve and as you tick them off each day you will feel successful. They will also help you achieve your long-term goals which might be “Lose _lbs this year” or “Get down to a size _ dress”.

This sort of positive thinking and motivation will carry you through and make your goal of weight loss a complete success. One weight loss tip that isn’t so much to do with mindset but well worth mentioning is that you should take a good quality multivitamin once a day. This gets your body working at maximum efficiency and also greatly reduces cravings for food. Many people eat too much because their body is crying out for proper nutrients but the food they are eating isn’t supplying them with these. So they eat, and eat, and eat, not getting the nutrients they need but getting the excess calories.

You now have all the information you need to make your weight loss program a total success. Don’t believe me? Take the first step and get yourself a weight loss hypnosis download and just watch as the pounds begin to melt away.

I wish you the very best of success.
