Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnotherapy
Waistline was reduced from 91cm to 84cm in five weeks.
Because of after shock stress (earthquake 22nd February, 2011), I gained 6kg which I was willing to get rid of with Virtual gastric Band 4 Sessions Programme. I started BGB in January 2013, my weight was 81.1 and waist size 91cm. Straight after the first “surgery” session , I started eating less, but often, (4 times a day). Tatiana gave me a number of self help strategies and tools. One of them was “The Ritual”: a glass of water, a deep breath, my self suggestion: “Every day I am feeling healthier, fitter
and slimmer”. I promised to repeat the Ritual 10 times a day, which I did!
My eating habits started changing: I started eating more slowly, concentrating on what I am eating.
I started exercising: I bought a Swiss ball and exercycle on Trademe for $70. I exercised 30 minutes every day and Tatiana taught me the skills of self-hypnosis which I do regularly.
I still listen to her Support recording “Virtual gastric Band”.
I am writing this on 28th March 2013, in anticipation of going to Australia for my grand daughter’s 21st birthday, wearing a new outfit size 12! (It was 16 when I started). I am still burning 1 pound of fat a week and my eating habits are healthy!

Changing my eating habits
I came with the belief that hypnotherapy would work for me. I made sure that I did the Ritual each time I drank water. I began to make better choices with food. I began to take smaller helpings and did not feel deprived by not having 3 chocolate bars each day after work! I replaced my morning tea – biscuits with fruit which I enjoyed very much. I bought an exercycle, but was not “very friendly” with it! This is now my next step to regularly use it while watching a favourite T.V. programme.
I am keeping on with the Workbook and remarking on how proud I am of myself for making better food choices and walking and giving more time to my self care eg. putting on perfume, using Lush products, having a massage, putting on nail polish.
My action plan for the next 2 months (May, June 2013) is to increase my exercise, and make better use of my exercycle over the cooler months and burn another 3kg of fat. I am one size less after 4 sessions.
New eating habits and motivation to exercise are the greatest benefits of Virtual Gastric band program and that’s for life.

“I have tried my diets and they worked for some time, but then my extra weight was returning. This year, 2014, I came across Virtual Gastric Band. I like the fact that I can eat what I like, but reduce my portions – feeling better. I stopped eating with “emotional hunger”.
Now, I am selecting healthy foods, drink two litres of water and herbal teas and use the skills of relaxation I learnt at Opti-Health Clinic. Weight is slowly coming off.

Thank you for helping me give myself permission to make the changes in my life I needed to be more content as a loving mother and partner. And also for helping me to work towards reaching my full potential as an artist and songwriter.
