Weight Management Q&A

How does being overweight affect my health?

Being overweight has an immense impact on your self-esteem, confidence, and the way you approach life. Carrying extra weight also significantly affects your physical health.

Fat cells actively release biochemicals that change your metabolism and lead to inflammation throughout your body. As a result, you have a higher risk of developing serious diseases, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Breast, endometrial, and colon cancer

Knowing the risks to your psychological and physical health isn’t enough to ensure weight loss success, however. Many other emotional and behavioral factors can get in the way and sabotage your efforts — whether you know it or not.

Why is it so hard to manage my weight?

Though you need to limit calories and get plenty of exercise, it’s not always enough to lose weight because many other issues affect your success.

You may know some of the habits that get in your way, such as:

  • Eating when you’re stressed
  • Eating to reward yourself
  • Eating when you’re bored
  • Eating when you’re lonely
  • Eating when you’re afraid
  • Eating to overcome an unpleasant experience

However, you may not be aware of other deeply ingrained habits that influence your weight. For example, many people carry negative experiences and emotions from their childhood that affect their eating habits and make it difficult to lose weight.

When you have hypnotherapy, you can overcome an uncontrollable desire for food, childhood programming, and the many reasons that sabotage weight loss.

What should I expect from hypnotherapy for weight management?

Loretta offers a free consultation in which she explains the details about hypnotherapy and how it works. Most importantly, she gets to know you so she can design a personalized program that guides your hypnotherapy. 

During your initial meeting, you complete a life discovery form that defines the issues you want to work on and talk with Loretta about issues such as:

  • Lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Self-esteem
  • Motivation
  • Food choices
  • Exercise habits
  • Difficulty sleeping

Loretta specializes in using hypnosis to eliminate self-sabotage and resolve the stress, anxiety, childhood programming, and inner conflict that prevent you from losing weight.

Hypnosis puts you in a trance-like state that allows your subconscious mind to become alert and focused. Then Loretta introduces positive suggestions that help you recognize and release your specific challenges.

For example, she might suggest a desire for water rather than soda or ways to reduce stress. Then your subconscious mind takes those suggestions and alters your emotions and behavior, leading to permanent changes that support weight loss.
