Hypnosis For Weight Loss: Why You Plateau And How Hypnosis Can Help You Move Beyond It For Good

By Dr. Scott Lewis
Nothing can kill weight loss motivation quite like Plateauing. This phenomenon happens when you've been dieting and exercising for a prolonged period of time, watching the numbers on the scale steadily drop, when out of nowhere, the weight loss stalls or even stops. It is a frustrating reality for millions of Americans who struggle with their weight, because it can be discouraging to think that all of our healthy lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, are futile.
This line of thinking is unfortunate because, when we stop seeing the results of all of our hard work, oftentimes the motivation to maintain the healthy behaviors that lead to our weight loss starts to fail because it seems like they're not working anymore. If you let defeatist thinking creep in and disrupt your healthy new routine, it can cause the weight you worked so hard to lose to come barreling back. But take heart: while plateauing is a normal (if not admittingly discouraging) part of weight loss, there are ways to overcome it, and keep yourself on track, and hypnosis is one tool that can help.
Hypnosis is a tool that has helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off in the long term. It helps to fill the gap that is created when the plateau hits, by tapping into your innermost motivation to lose weight, and get-and stay-healthy. By changing the way you think about and approach your goals, you can maintain your momentum, even in the face of a plateau, when so many ask, "What's the point?" and ultimately give up.
How Hypnosis For Weight Loss Can Help
When you reach the point of a plateau, sometimes the best thing you can do to revamp your motivation is to change the way your mind is approaching your weight loss. This is why it may be helpful for you to consider hypnosis for weight loss, which can keep your ultimate goal at the forefront of your mind, even when the numbers on the scale may frustrate and discourage.
A qualified hypnotherapist will be able to help you visualize your ideal weight and can make it real for you. When you are hypnotized, he may ask you, how does your body feel now that it is so much smaller? How does it feel to breathe at this ideal weight? How does it feel to be able to wear that dress you've had tucked away for years because it didn't fit? How are your loved ones reacting to the healthier you- with complements? Do you feel more confident?
By relaxing and focusing on that light at the end of the tunnel, a qualified hypnotherapist may be able to help you see your body as you want it to be: lean and healthy, not for the sake of a single event, or some other short term motivation, but purely for the sake of being healthy for life. This is why hypnosis can revitalize your motivation so you can confront that plateau and move past it without backsliding into former unhealthy habits.
