Hi, I am new, today, to posting on the site. I thought I was going to just jump on and look, but I was struck by the posting. My husband just attended a two day seminar on this very subject. He just got home and we talked about it and how I may be able to apply it weight loss. After listening to him, I asked him if he thought it would work for weight loss. He said they covered that too, and yes, it would.
But this seminar was attended by natural pathic doctor's, drug counselor's, chiroprators and massage therapist, all getting CE credits. And of course, the general public. But the entire basis was just this, that if you believe something, you will make it so. You set yourself up even on the subconcious level. That was a major part of the seminar, how to retrain your subconcious thinking, so you stop the negative line of thinking.
At first I was very skeptical, but after researching it and looking more into it, it makes a lot sense. And now with my weight out of control, having done every single thing out there, but maybe change my thought patterns. I have been doing exactly what has been posted, saying, yeah, I messed up, I am done...
The seminar was given by Concious Media Network. They have a book out also, on this called The Missing Peace in your life. I haven't read the book because my husband just brought it home. But I am going to take a look at it.
Sorry to just go on and on, but it was so cool, seeing this very topic we were just discussing and how you really can take control mentally to get the physical changes. It goes with that phrase... worry yourself sick.. you really can, those are all thought patterns.
I was glad to see the topic posted. I read an article in the paper here, about people who get weight loss surgery and how studies show some of them are picking up horrible addictions afterward because they are replacing their food addictions with other ones. Carney Wilson talked about becoming an alcoholic after her surgery because she didn't address the food addiction.
Which goes back to say, it isn't all on the outside of our bodies, there has to be some mental work done too.
