David Delp

My name is David Delp. I live in Columbus, Ohio, and I work in construction. I have three daughters. I lost 46 lbs in five months thanks to Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers. I went from a size 36 waist to a trim 30. I have kept my weight off easily ever since.

Lifelong Battle

I had battled with my weight my entire life. I was heavy from third to sixth grade and then got a paper route and worked the weight off. When I was 19, I worked at a pizza restaurant. Needless to say, I packed on the weight. I stayed heavy until about age 28 when I went on a diet. I eventually gained it all back and then some.

My eating felt totally out of control.  I ate whatever I wanted without thinking. I ate for gratification. The only problem was my weight kept climbing.

When I was overweight I had to give up my passion—water skiing. I was too heavy to pull myself out of the water. It was hard for me to get around at work and I felt sluggish, yet I continued to just eat and eat and eat. I even caused permanent back damage by carrying around all the extra baggage in my stomach.

Wanted to Lose Weight for Good

I tried many methods to lose weight. All Weight Watchers taught me to do was check off boxes when I ate. They didn’t change the way I thought about food. I did Atkins briefly, but couldn’t stick to it. After struggling to lose for eight years, I decided I’d had enough. I was ready to take off my weight for good. I knew that I had to change my perception of food if I was going to get fit permanently.

That’s when I discovered Positive Changes in the newspaper. It sounded exactly like what I was looking for. I wanted something different. I wanted to change my thinking so I could make smarter, lasting choices. I wasn’t sure what to expect at my first visit, but I went in with an open mind. I really believed that Positive Changes was the answer.  I signed up and melted off 46 lbs in five short months.

"Easy and Automatic"

I enrolled in the program before Thanksgiving. To my amazement, the holidays weren’t even a struggle. I lost a steady two to three pounds every week and about 14 lbs my first month. The best part was I noticed the changes in my behavior almost immediately. I was paying more attention to what I was eating and how it would affect my health. I also noticed I was eating a lot less, but it was easy because I was taking the time to enjoy the food I ate. I started drinking a lot more water. These changes were all easy and automatic.

Hypnosis also helped me eliminate snacking. I eat balanced meals and then I’m done. I no longer have those three o’clock cravings for ice cream. I drive right by McDonald’s with no desire to stop. Positive Changes was just what I was looking for. It was almost too easy.

Everything is Easier

Thanks to Positive Changes, I now have a better attitude and outlook on life. Of course I’m happier with the way I look, but Positive Changes has done so much more for me. It has helped me get focused. My stress levels are way down and I think more clearly. Hypnosis has given me the clarity and strength to work on other areas of my life. Everything is easier without that extra 46 lbs I used to haul around!

Before Positive Changes, I couldn’t pass up cookies or snacks. Now I don’t care about those things. I don’t have to put any effort into it, and I’ve never felt like I was on a diet. My weight just came off quickly and naturally. I know I’ll never go back to my old way of thinking and eating. My weight loss is a permanent change.

Surprise Benefits

I had always tried to stay active with my kids, but I was afraid it might kill me one day. I now have no trouble keeping up with three active girls. This is the first time they’ve ever seen me at a healthy weight and they couldn’t be happier for me. Positive Changes has helped benefit them, too. I cook them healthier meals instead of careless ones, and I try to help them make better food choices. I feel like I’m setting a good example for them now.

I would absolutely recommend Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers to anyone. In fact, I already have. When you are ready to lose weight--and that’s something only you will know--you can do it, and Positive Changes can help you. So get ready to relax and change your thinking—with Positive Changes you will succeed.
