What is HYPNOTHERAPY?

“Our subconscious is like our hard drive, where we store every experience, emotion, and thought weโ€™ve had. In a relaxed, hyper-focused state of hypnosis โ€” under the guidance of a hypnotherapist we can run a search on our subconscious, pulling up the memories and emotions at the root of our challenges to release, re-frame or let go.”

Week 4: Company en Route

Hey All!

I missed writing a blog post last week because, in all honesty, I saw 180lb on the scale again. I was embarrassed, frustrated and I felt like I had let you down, even though you don’t know me, have never met me and may not even care about my journey! I have realized for aย  while that I put other’s needs before my own and I am working on that by prioritizing my priorities. I am committed to Fat-Nav and to myself losing weight, and writing about it, warts and all, has helped me keep it at the top of my list.

This past week I have joined a couple of weight loss forums for support (I am unable to take support from my family for various reasons) and I have been sorely disappointed. I made a couple of like minded connections but I received more spam than it was worth. Luckily, I have a friend of a friend on facebook who found CrossFit, you know the type! She had shared progress pictures of earlier journeys and now she is doing another cut and looking for people to join in. I jumped at the chance! I will be cutting down on starchy carbs for 3 weeks, keeping them to under 40g a day, and I already feel better by day 3. She has said she is happy to support me if I want, but I am not super confident about her commitment. She may be a facebook friend but I doubt she would be there through one of my ramsey-esque rages where I furiously question why chocolate mash potato isn’t a thing.

It got me thinking about what I need on a long car journey to keep me moving forward, aside from petrol, caffeine and a determination to get home. I would need a car buddy, someone on the same journey, maybe one who points out potholes or provides navigation when I am facing a diversion. I also enjoy music or podcasts as in-car entertainment. In Fat-Nav terms I think a buddy is helpful only if they are on the same journey, not one who complains about how difficult it is, begrudges your progress or lures you onto their much more intense route. I am now also trying to avoid any social media or TV programs which contradict my current goals. I am far too persuadable and I want to get home.

In lieu of a twin sister or chunky BFF I have been using counselling and hypnotherapy to report to and take advice and solace from. I write in my journal each night, focusing on my emotions and highlighting my successes and untangling my failures. I use self-hypnotherapy to instill my goals into me as I fall into a deep, wonderful slumber. I will probably dedicate a blog post to this as I find it really helpful and interesting.

Love Yourself,

Week One: Bumps Already?!

fat nav map W1

I am blogging for you today, practically from under my duvet, with shame and frustration. I knew I had events to attend this weekend and I convinced myself that I was going to A) eat a moderate amount B) drink a moderate amount and C) not smoke. Well… none of that happened.

Both events I went to were, I daren’t even say it…buffets.ย  Tasty, unlimited mountains of food in all shapes, colours and sizes. It comes withย the added bonus of wise elders forcing leftovers into your protesting hands. ‘Otherwise’ they say, their eyes widening with fear ‘It will Go To Waste’, the most abhorrent place Baby Boomers can imagine. I now have a useless block of Stilton and a half tub of pate stinking out fridge. However the er, ginormous slab of cake may or may not have been consumed for breakfast the following day… Saturday broke my others vows, it was just lots and lots of lovely gin, well gin and creamy potato salad.

I had these events on Friday and Saturday and came home around 6pm on Sunday evening. I weighed in at a whopping 185lbs on Sunday and, knowing my body, I knew/ hoped that my cactus DNA had kicked in. Please let me know if you are the same, but if I get dehydrated from alcohol or smoking my body can hold almost 8lbs of water. Eight. Pounds. Of. Water. This means that after one too many drinks and cigarettes I turn into the CoolAid Man. I drank so much water over the last two days to counteract this, feeling that climbing the stairs every 10 minutes to pee would surely count as cardio. I weighed in at 181lbs this morning. Yes, it is not as bad as 185lbs but is still further away from my destination!

Anyway, lessons to learn for the rest of my journey. If I am serious about reaching my destination I need to learn to say no. I can have fun without drinking and I can eat a meal without going overboard. If, in future, I feel unable to resist the buffet I will bring my own lunch and claim I have specific dietary requirements, which in essence I do if I want to stay on track. I had a fantastic first half of the week and I enjoyed seeing my friends and family whilst seeing out the summer. It is not the end of the road, I am not giving up and I damn well am going to see at least 177 lbs on the scale next Tuesday!

Love Yourself,

Hayley
