I chose “Let’s end with some good news” as this weeks reading from Becoming Slender For Life. At the Seattle weight loss hypnosis office of Slender For Life™ this past week there have been several discussions how to fill yourself with living rather than with food. Using hypnosis for weight loss tools you no longer have the need to overeat. Learn self hypnosis and make positive changes in your life.

Let’s end with some good news

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, July 2005, there is a general perception that almost no one succeeds in long-term maintenance of weight loss. However, recent research has shown that 20 percent of overweight individuals are successful at long-term weight loss when defined as losing at least 10 percent of initial body weight and maintaining the loss for at least one year. The key is to build on your first signs of success, focus on progress not perfection, but never lose sight of the fact that you are making a permanent lifestyle change.

As of this writing (in late 2010) there are signs that food suppliers are getting the message that we desperately need and want to eat more healthily. In late 2006 New York City instituted a bold law banning trans fats. Since then, cities like Seattle and others around the globe have been following suit. Restaurants are changing the way they operate, with most fast food chains pouring out the unhealthy oils. Even Denny’s—formerly known for giant platters of fried food— announced plans to dump trans fats. Then came news that Wal-Mart of all places is going to sell organic food. That means healthier options are reaching into the smallest towns and farthest corners of America—which conveniently eliminates yet another potential excuse—that there is no healthy food in your area.

Former client Leslie sums it up for many people who have stuck with the Slender For Life™ plan. “This program has given me the confidence to be myself without overeating. I have lightened up both physically and emotionally.”

I wish for you the same gratifying results.

Applause, applause for finishing the book—and giving yourself the immeasurable gift of good health. By now, you may be beginning to realize that it’s not about the food! It’s about you taking control of your life and creating a new relationship with yourself, where you are living consciously in the moment. It’s about taking back your power—the power that you gave away to food, stress, family, other people, work, life, events and circumstances. But it is about having room in your life to savor family and other relationships. It’s the love you feel when someone makes you dinner—it’s the love—not what’s in the skillet. It’s about you loving yourself as absolutely as any pet ever did. It is about a transformation from within. You no longer fill yourself with food— you fill yourself with living.

May all your days be infused with enormous joy and satisfaction, a little exercise and a lot of vegetables.
