I Lost 25 Pounds In 5 Months!- Kim's Story
My name is Kim. I’m a 55-year-old mother and librarian. For most of my life I was
overweight. That all changed when I discovered hypnosis. I lost 25 pounds in five
months. That was over two years ago, and I have kept the weight off. If you’re like
me and have struggled to lose weight, I am excited to share with you the secret to
I was on the “see food” diet—if I saw food I liked, I couldn’t stop myself from eating
it. I craved sweets and popcorn. I ate my meals quickly and barely noticed what I
had eaten. Even after I was full, I continued to stuff myself. I snacked mindlessly. I
inhaled bags of candy. I ate when I was sad, bored, or happy.
I looked in the mirror and saw someone who was lumpy and overweight. I hated
the way my clothes looked on me. I avoided having my picture taken. Getting ready
to go out was a struggle. Being social was stressful. I was miserable and it was
affecting my relationships.
Spinning in Circles
A few times a year, I would try to rein in my eating habits using willpower to resist
eating sweets or a second helping. I’d lose weight at first, but eventually I’d get fed
up with counting calories and feeling deprived. Before I knew it, I’d be back to my
old, mindless eating habits. I was frustrated and down on myself, but I kept
repeating the same cycle.
In the summer of 2019, I had completed yet another diet program. I had lost some weight and gotten down to a comfortable size 12. Before long, though, the weight started creeping back on and I was having trouble fitting into my clothes AGAIN! I was determined not to pull out my “big” clothes again. I needed help!
The Solution – Finally!
A friend told me she’d had success losing weight using hypnosis. I called Port Credit Hypnosis and booked a free screening. When I visited them, I learned that many people who struggled with weight like I did, learned how to succeed using hypnosis. They evaluated my situation, assessed me to see if I was a good candidate for hypnosis, and showed me that weight loss success was possible for me, too.
I lost over 25 pounds and 20” in five months. I dropped from a size 12-14 to a size 8, and I have kept the weight off for over two years. I learned how to manage stress and emotional ups and downs without reverting to old habits. I now enjoy food AND look and feel fantastic!
My New Habits
Daily exercise feels great! The old snacking and junk food habits are gone. I enjoy eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at breakfast, lunch, and dinner time. The old emotional eating habit is gone. I feel free to eat what I want, and mostly what I want is healthy food. I only eat when I’m hungry. I don’t overeat and I don’t binge.
I am healthier and happier now. Getting ready to go out is easy. I put something on and enjoy the way it feels and looks. Looking great in a size 8 is something I thought could never happen. My friends and family are really proud of me. I have a positive outlook and I’m having more fun. I feel like I’m the best version of myself now. Thank you, Port Credit Hypnosis!

At Port Credit Hypnosis, we help people to manage their weight in a sensible, healthy and sustainable way. Our program does not depend on deprivation diets or weigh-ins, point systems or counting calories. Instead, we teach you how to make changes both consciously and subconsciously so that you find yourself automatically eating in a healthier and more balanced way.
People who are overweight often share some common factors.
Those who have difficulty managing their weight often:
- Eat for comfort or to distract themselves from negative emotions
- Have a negative self-image
- Use food as a reward
- Don’t enjoy being physically active
- Prefer sweet or salty fattening foods over healthier options
- Continue eating when full
- Were taught as children to ‘finish their plate’
- Believe that losing weight involves deprivation and starvation
- Don’t realize how much food they have consumed in a day
- Don’t drink enough water
Our personalized sessions focus on the reasons why each person overeats and gains weight. When the underlying causes of the overeating are addressed then the unhealthy eating behaviour can be replaced with healthy eating patterns. Our program helps to realign the subconscious mind so that the person eats not as an automatic response to emotion but in order to satisfy the body’s nutritional needs. The result is a slimmer and healthier person who is free to eat as nature designed us, in a balanced and satisfying way.
