For many people it is the start of a life-changing journey. By changing your relationship with food at a psychological level the change, the weight loss is fast, and maybe, more importantly, the results are permanent.
My Weight-Loss Success With Hypnotherapy
Sarah lost a total of 144 pounds!
My Weight-Loss Success With Hypnotherapy. Sarah had an issue with her weight for as long as she can remember – “I’d always been a bit chubby as a child, but my weight ballooned when my doctor prescribed steroid-based medication for asthma at the age of 9.” She was 13 stone by the time she was 11 years old, and weighed 19 stone at the age of 19.
Her older sister Amanda has always been slim. Sarah says: “I spent my teenage years envying her. I wanted her hair, her style, and, most of all, I wanted her figure.” Read The Does This Work? page.
Sarah before she lost weight with her sister Amanda
In the year 2000, Sarah and Amanda decided to have a joint wedding. “At a size 24, I must have been crazy to agree to a double wedding with my size 8 sister, but at the time I thought it was a great idea. I can still remember the pang I felt when I saw Amanda try on her understated white gown. She looked beautiful, whereas my dress was custom made to fit my ever-expanding waistline. Our wedding should have been the most incredible day of my life. Instead I spent it feeling awkward and uncomfortable.”
My Weight-Loss Success With Award-Winning Hypnotherapy
“Still, as unhappy as I was, as the years passed, I always found an excuse not to lose weight, being busy with my job as a travel agent, then using my two pregnancies as an excuse to eat. There was only a year between my two sons Harrison and Marshall, so I didn’t have a chance to lose all the baby weight before I had the next one.
I had tried a few diets, but with no success, until I eventually gave up altogether, surviving on Mars Bars, pasta, fizzy drinks, double portions of takeaways and curries. By the time I was 27, I had reached my heaviest weight of 21 stone, and even my size 28 trousers were a tight fit.” My Weight-Loss Success With Hypnotherapy. See the GMband website for more info.
An embarrassing plane journey was Sarah’s tipping point to lose weight
In 2009, Sarah suffered the classic indignity of being unable to do up her seat belt on a flight. On that day that I will never forget, I decided that enough was enough. So on 1st January 2010, she made a New Year’s Resolution, and was determined she was to see it through. “I didn’t want to be a fat mum. I didn’t want to die young and leave my kids without a mother, all because I had eaten my way to an early grave. If I could just reprogramme how I think…..”
Sarah had tried just about every diet that existed including diet pills, but always ended up putting the weight back on again. She had even researched Gastric Band Surgery but after reading about the many side effects, she decided it was not for her.
One morning I saw an article in the newspaper about Martin and Marion Shirran. As soon as I read about their treatment I knew it was going to be right for me. I phoned the clinic number and managed to speak to Marion. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. After chatting with her for ten minutes I decided to book up and fly over to the clinic in Spain. Meting them both was a life changing experience.
Read Sarah’s Weight-Loss Success Story With Hypnotherapy
When Sarah started her weight-loss journey in March 2010, she was more than 20 stone. Her BMI was 46.7 and she was rated as morbidly obese. She had high blood pressure and was on medication for asthma, she was constantly tired and sometimes struggled just to walk. She just about managed to squeeze herself into size 24 clothes. After her sessions with Marion and Martin she went on to lose half her body weight – a massive total of 144lbs!
“I was surprised at the amount of therapy time Marion and Martin dedicated to my sessions – They managed to get me thinking about my relationship with food and opening up about it. I didn’t realise some of the issues I had, until I talked about it, for example, how greedy I was. It totally changed my mindset and literally reprogrammed my relationship with food. When asked if I ate in secret I had to admit, Yes, all the time. For example, I eat a block of cheese while cooking, but I don’t count it. Or, I’ll eat five chocolate bars, but tell myself I only had one. I was living a lie.”
“The driving force of my overeating was psychological factors, which I needed to address. I was stuck in a cycle of feeling unhappy because I was fat and eating because I was unhappy. It was a vicious cycle. I had to learn to be honest with myself, kind to myself and eat food that was good for me.” The Hypnotherapy part surprised me, to be honest I was not a believer. However after just the first Hypnotherapy session, something, and to this day I am not sure what, something just changed. My relationship with food changed that day, and over ten years later it is still the same.
My Weight-Loss Success Using Hypnotherapy
“I knew I wasn’t going on a fad diet, but I was going to change my whole lifestyle. Not just to be a better mum, but to finally, truly like myself as a person. At the end of the sessions I felt so empowered. I knew something inside me had changed for good. I was very focused and I started losing weight immediately. Because I really wanted it to work so much, I think that’s why I was so successful.
I can eat whatever I choose – it’s just making the right choices. As carbs were my biggest downfall in the past, I choose to cut them out as much as possible. Knowing I’ll feel ten times worse if I eat things like bread and pasta now, leads me to think there’s no point. I’d rather choose to eat something healthy and enjoy it!” My Weight-Loss Success With Hypnotherapy
“I never saw this as a diet. Instead I came through the treatment with a totally different relationship with food. Now I just eat when I’m hungry and not for all the other reasons that I had in the past. Also, thanks to the hypnosis sessions I felt full eating much smaller portions. I also started eating much slower following the CBT sessions.”
Sarah has lost 144 pounds!
After completing the Shirrans’ weight-loss sessions, Sarah’s weight is now just 9 stone 12lb: a total weight loss of 144 lbs. Her BMI is a healthy 23.8, her blood pressure is now normal, and the asthma is virtually non-existent. Sarah has a passion for running now and she has completed several half marathons.
Sarah gradually became more outgoing and enjoyed being more active, as her weight reduced further. She realised that she and Lee were growing apart, as he continued enjoying the former lifestyle they used to follow together, and they finally split up.
Sarah’s Weight-Loss Success Story
Sarah met Adam in 2012. He was very proud of her impressive weight loss achievement and they soon fell in love. They married in July 2015, and Sarah walked down the aisle for the second time, absolutely radiant, in her dream size 10, classic white gown, with a delicate lace veil.
“When I slipped into the dress and saw my reflection, I burst into tears. I never knew I could look so elegant. Walking down the aisle for the second time, I felt as happy as I looked. Holding my two wedding photos side by side, even I’m sometimes shocked by how different they look.” You may be interested to read our page: “Pre-Wedding Weight Loss.”
Following her treatment Sarah has appeared on TV shows in both the UK and Australia. Additionally, the Daily Mail and Daily Express Newspapers, and a number of national magazines have featured her success story.
It’s OK to Be Selfish
I have been completely retrained around food, now I eat to live rather than living to eat. I read once that losing weight, being on the journey of change is certainly one area in life where it’s OK to be selfish. So now around food and socialising, I just put me first.
