i'm trying to lose weight again.
(i started in december, you know, to avoid the whole inevitable New Year's resolution pressure.) so, it's going well. i feel like i have a good plan: i'm eliminating mid-meal snacking, eating smaller portions, walking the dog to get my cardio in, drinking water.
oh, and then there's the hypnosis.
people have asked me if getting hypnotized has helped me lose weight. the thing is, i have no idea! i have lost weight. i'm not tempted to snack (as much). but, somewhat disappointing, i don't find myself wanting to eat a salad every time i really want cheese and crackers. or chocolate. i can't all of a sudden run a sub 5 minute (or sub 10 minute) (okay... or EVEN a sub 12 minute) mile.
from what i understand about hypnotism, i won't really be aware of changes in my behavior around food, because it's all happening in the sub-conscious. it's all been pretty interesting, and, i'm feeling pretty upbeat about it.
i have mentioned before that i try not to be a slave to the scale. i love to have more energy. i love to see thin-ness in my face. i love to feel loose-ness in my clothes. i love when my pants fall down when i'm walking the dog...
i mean, come on! is there ANY better indicator of weight loss? i think not!
so my sub-conscious and i are pretty excited about reaching some weight-loss goals this quarter. i kind of have a "number" in mind. but i'm more focused on the "attitude" i have in mind. oh, and i'd like to be able to wear a cute pair of jeans when i go to Dallas in March.
just as long as i'm not the one at conference with my pants on the ground...
