Anyone up for a current thread? I've had a good search and couldn't find anything recent!

I've got the book/cd and am downloading the app too. I'll start tonight.

I've never done this kind of thing before but am very open to it working smile

Hopeful bump for some buddies!

I've started day one with the app. A few mini talks today, and then I have a bedtime trance thing - I'm hopeful an offshoot of this might be that it will help my shocking sleeping <yawn>

I’m in- I did this a couple of years ago but gave up. I’ve downloaded the app and i’m ready for the morning. As I remember the hypnosis definitely got me to sleep

I downloaded the audio book yesterday. Listened to it last night.

Undecided whether it'll actually work but worth a shot. I'm in.

FoofFighter Tue 23-Jan-18 17:05:50

Ooh hello 👋

I'm approaching it with an open mind but probably secretly thinking it's all tosh but nothing to lose by trying!

holightssmolights Tue 23-Jan-18 19:31:08

Me too! I've downloaded the App ready to start tmw. Do either of you know if I should have the book too?
The sight of myself in the mirror today when I came home from work was horrifying - I have to do something.

FoofFighter Tue 23-Jan-18 20:35:29

I have the book and cd but haven't read yet.

Looking forward to my nighttime hypnotic trance! Will report back in the am

Load of bollocks ! Eat sensible and exercise is only way to lose weight

holightssmolights Tue 23-Jan-18 21:38:51

Well yes farmerswife thank you for your well thought out and new advice 🙄

If it was that simple we'd all be doing with no help.

Now piss off and leave those of us alone.

Threeminis Tue 23-Jan-18 23:56:06

Well said holights
I decided I needed the book too Si have ordered a preowned one from eBay.

Away to start my operation now. Wish me luck!

I used this a lot before I had children and it was amazing. I ate what I wanted but had control of portion size and I felt inspired to exercise regularly. He makes sense about the diet industry and how they play on personal guilt and low self esteem. Good luck and I'll watch with interest must dig out earphones and do this as ism now ginormous

Hmm, been thinking of buying the whole book, just reading the sample on kindle and there's nothing too faddy or woo about it at all yet. Following to see how you all get on with it, good luck!

holightssmolights Wed 24-Jan-18 00:44:47

Thanks threeminis blush
Catsofa I've also downloaded the free sample tonight and started reading. I figured in for a penny in for a pound!

First day tmw so will see what happens

FoofFighter Wed 24-Jan-18 08:11:05

Did the trance thing last night in bed, felt a bit silly at first. His voice amused me. I failed to keep counting backwards cause I'm rubbish at maths blush

I've discovered I'm not too great at visualisation but that should improve. Is the trance thing the same each night?

I did sleep a bit better than usual and strangely I always wake in a degree of discomfort from back and hips but didn't this morning. Coincidence?

FoofFighter Wed 24-Jan-18 08:13:07

Btw found my book/cd in a charity shop, worth checking them out.

Anyone else using the app?

FoofFighter Wed 24-Jan-18 11:51:14

OK it's almost noon and because I haven't felt physical hunger yet, I haven't eaten. Not sure if that's correct or not!

FoofFighter Wed 24-Jan-18 17:05:23

So I had my lunch, I started feeling hunger rumbles whilst making dc lunch.

I had a sandwich and ate it mindfully, putting it down each bite, chewing at least 20 times doesn't that sound a lot, but in reality sometimes I was taking 30 to chew it, maybe I take big bites ;) I tried to savour it but the onion on it was too strong, so that ended up being the part I left on my plate, probably not in the spirit of things though! It took me 15 minutes to eat said sandwich.

I'm out for dinner tonight so can't exactly do the wait til you're feeling physical hunger thing, but will still follow principles of putting down cutlery in between and chewing a lot. Can't say I shall be concentrating on it much though as obviously there will be conversations going on!

holightssmolights Wed 24-Jan-18 21:58:47

Well done foof.
It's weird as I don't actually it will work this quickly (if it does at all) but I only ate my lunch (homemade soup and 2 slices of bread) at lunchtime and my dinner (chicken breast, baked potato And veg) at dinner time. I haven't smacked or picked at sweets. I'm a dreadful chocoholic but haven't had any which is unheard of.
I've still to listen to my first nighttime thing so who knows what my mind is doing 😂

catsofa Wed 24-Jan-18 22:19:45

Didn't know there was an app. It seems to have fairly terrible reviews, how have you found it?

Singingtherapy Wed 24-Jan-18 22:37:07

I tried this method a few years ago. It makes a lot of sense. The problem I found was reconciling it with the fact that eating is inherently social. I don't feel free to eg have a sandwich at 5pm because I'm hungry and that's what I fancy, and then have nothing while rest of the family have dinner.

holightssmolights Wed 24-Jan-18 22:40:23

Catsofa - tonight will be my first night of the "hypnotic session" but I'll report back. So far I've listened to a wee video of him describing why it's the best and the 4 ways that I'll achieve weight loss. Am trying to keep an open mind 😬

holightssmolights Wed 24-Jan-18 22:41:14

Singing I totally agree, and I can't help it but I enjoy eating. I enjoy food. Too much hence I am where where I am.

I can but see

xandsch Wed 24-Jan-18 23:08:00

Paul McKenna is my cousin. Random fact for you all.

FoofFighter Thu 25-Jan-18 07:15:37


So I went out last night and although I chose what I wanted, I randomly found myself clearing up the salad before I had the main part.

Have a good day everyone!

Hi all. I used to have/host (?) the PMK threads and am thinking of returning to it. I did lose weight with him before so I may join you smile if you don't mind? I need to get my books out. Just as an aside, the PMK Hypnotic Gastric Band one works too.
