My body is my temple. My morbidly obese temple that is :-( At least that's what my doctor's file says. I recently went to get a check up to make sure that I did not have cancer. Now, I knew most likely I did not have cancer and that what I was experiencing was just heart burn. However never having had heart burn and having had my dad pass away from complications to treatment of esophagile cancer, my hypocondriatic inner voice had me a little, ok a lot, nervous.
The doctor confirmed that I was just having heart burn, which was good. But then proceeded to lecture me for the remainder of the visit on how I needed to lose weight. He blessed me with the oh so wonderful label of morbidly obese (do you hear my sarcasim?) and even threw out the possiblities of my needing to have weightloss surgery in the future if I cannot lose the weight. So that check up did leave me rather bummed.
The good thing is I already knew I needed to lose some weight and have already taken some steps to start treating my body like the temple that it really is. As a matter of fact only 3 days before my check up I had met with a hypnotist to find out if hypnosis could be a technique to help with my weight loss efforts. Here is the video I made after my meeting with her.
Now, as I mentioned in the video the hypnosis won't work by it self and behavior modification is necessary. So I will be referring to my list of steps to Rennovate my Temple along with getting more exercise in the form of taking short walks during work and walking my dog more often.
Have you or would you ever try hypnosis for weigtloss, to stop smoking, or for help with some other issue? If you have what was your experience like?
