I had my hypno gastric band 'fitted' by Paul McKenna last night...

lynniep Fri 11-Jan-13 11:01:11 far so good! Admittedly its not even 11am yet, but I havent eaten my snacks which are sitting on my desk and not even tempting me! Normally I don't allow myself anything till 10am, then I pounce!

I am doing this in conjunction with weightwatchers, which Paul McKenna would not approve of, since he despises 'diet clubs' (boy does this come through loud and clear in his book).

However since I don't know the man personally, and I feel I need the WW sessions for support, I am carrying on with pro- pointing and hoping that my gastric band will provide the backup I need to not binge and eat more than my body needs.

I've been (back) on weightwatchers for several months now and failed miserably because I am both a compulsive eater and a (hopefully) reformed bulimic.

I'd like to think this will help me - and I'm willing to try it because I am now as heavy as I was just after I gave birth to DS2 3 years ago (my heaviest, unless you count when I was 40 weeks pg!)

If anyone is interested I will report back smile

Hi guys, I'm also from Australia. Just read the book and going to install my band tonight smile

To keep me from eating on the couch I'm going to buy place mats for my new dining table setting and encourage myself and my partner to use it every breakfast & dinner instead of using it as a storage table (i hate when people dump things on it) haha

what a great idea kate yes i too battle the dumping ground epidemic which takes over every time there's one little thing on the dining table & everyone decides it needs the company of other stuff <aaarrgh>!!

i've reinstalled my band at the start of the week & seem to be satisfied by smaller partions hmm but also been making the effort to be more mindful too. so i'm off to do it again right now and have a powernap wink

I completed my 21 day session yesterday, and I would recommend it to everyone. I've lost 8kg and have started running and cycling because of this app. Just give it ur 100% and you won't be disappointed.

Just joining thought id write a review on Paul McKenna Gastric Band Hypnosis. After losing over 6 stone with WW and struggling as put nearly two back on and never want to be back at that point, thought id try his book/DVD. Followed it to the tea and read the book twice and then on Monday night went into the spare room and put in my earphones and listened to the pre-op then the surgery and relaxed and started to follow his instructions of counting down, I felt very strange very relaxed my body felt almost tingly, but could here everything he said and remained awake but so relaxed it felt like I was dreaming, although I could hear everything and opened my eyes once or twice to make sure I was definitely awake its was a strange but dreamy feeling, when at the end he counted down from 10 I opened my eyes and felt lovely and relaxed, went to bed shortly after that and had a great sleep, as usually not a good sleeper, got up for work the following morning at 4.30 and felt quiet energetic, breakfast time came and went didn't feel hungry so never ate then about 11 o clock felt slightly peckish and a bit light headed as have a active job so had a small bowl of cereal ( in a sugar size bowl) finished it didn't feel overly full like I thought I would, but not hungry either, as the day went on I was at work until so about had a small sandwich on my break usually id have 4 slices of bread as its small Warburton's wholemeal bread but only made two with a slice of turkey and salad in them, and a packet of small quavers crisps, when my day was over went home my OH had already had his tea I didn't feel hungry at all and had nothing else, I had drunk water through the day, usually I live for meal times but think that's sometimes my problem eat because we have been programmed to eat Breakfast then Lunch then Dinner even when at times I probably was eating for eating sake as its just habit, like the book says eat when hungry stop when full so I am going to try this method and see what happens, I did get weighed on the night I listened to the DVD so will post again soon to let anyone interested know the results.
