What if you have a whole lot to lose?

What if you have a whole lot to lose is the next segment in Chapter 7 of my book, Becoming Slender For Life. For the past several Saturdays, I have been posting from chapter 7 – which I have come to realize is the most popular chapter in my book.

This segment is a long one and I will post a small piece of it each week until we have completed it. If you are one who wants to read it all in one sitting, then go to Chapter 7 in Becoming Slender For Life and enjoy your reading.

Twenty-five years ago, I was morbidly obese. I had been overweight my entire life. Thanks to hypnosis, healthy eating and exercise, I lost 115 pounds and I have kept it off for more than twenty years.  I remember what it was like to be overweight and obese and I still remember the horrors of dieting. I am passionate about helping you to lose weight and keep it off without the diet horrors. If I can be of support to you, we can meet in my Seattle or Bainbridge offices or online from the comfort of your home or office.

What if you have a whole lot to lose?

The medical term for people with 100 pounds or more to lose is morbidly obese. Now that’s a scary term, and it should be. If you’re in that boat-make that an ocean liner, because you have a lot of  company-then you’ve already heard all the dire warnings about your health. (Reread Chapter One if you skipped it.) I know all too well about this category, because I spent way too many years of my life languishing in it. Which is also why I can state with every ounce of what remains of my being, that you can release a huge amount of weight-i/ you decide you want to.

There’s no doubt, you face special hurdles. From bathroom scales that can’t measure your weight, to exercise equipment
built for someone half your size, to the health problems associated with being extremely overweight, frustrations are a daily reality.

Warren Huberman, PhD, a behavioral consultant for the weight loss program at New York University Medical Center, writes: “You can’t just toss a very overweight person the latest diet book or piece of exercise equipment and expect it to work. There is a whole different mindset to large-scale weight loss, and a whole different approach becomes necessary.”

Anyone can drop off the 10 or 20 pounds they picked up when they weren’t eating consciously. However, to permanently alter your body by 100 pounds or more  requires a special commitment. I will not lie to you and say how easy it will be. It won’t be. It took you years to get in the shape you’re in, and it’ll take more than a year to reach any state of what feels like normalcy. You may well come from a family who also is extra heavy, and they will very likely be forced to face their own issues if you go down this path. Some of them may join you, but others may not. So you need to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for possibly having to take this journey to better health without their help or support. If your own children are also overweight, then at least consider doing this for their sake.

You’ll need to work extra hard on all the intangible factors. And that’s where I can offer some encouragement. Self-hypnosis will be your new best friend-for the rest of your life. This is the tool that can make the difference between one more bounce of the yo-yo and sustaining a new you.
