Hi. My name is Meegan VanderBurgh. I live in Spokane, Washington with my husband and 2 children. I was a pack-a-day smoker for 16 years and an overweight smoker for 8 long years. I was miserable. Then, thanks to Positive Changes, I lost 43 lbs. in 4 months and I'm smoke-free. I couldn't be happier! Being in control of my life is a dream come true. I'm a new person, full of self-confidence and energy.
From the moment I walked in, I saw the center was professional, something like a doctor's office, but more relaxing. The fee for the program was reasonable. In fact, Positive Changes was the smartest investment I could make. Between quitting smoking and not eating junk food, I save almost $300 a month. I wouldn't trade what I have for a million dollars. Even though I made these changes myself, I'd never have done it without the help of Positive Changes. My health has so improved that my doctor was shocked when he saw me. He tells me I'm the picture of health. My cholesterol is normal and so is my blood pressure. I sleep better at night. Making these changes in my life is priceless!
There was a time I didn't know what it was like to drive a car without smoking. I tried every gimmick on the market to quit. Nothing worked. I was overweight ever since I had my first child. I tried to lose weight through dieting and exercise, but I'd fall off the weight-loss wagon and go back to eating junk food before I could lose any weight. I felt out of control. No doubt about it, I was headed down the path of obesity.
A friend told me about Positive Changes Hypnosis. I was still skeptical of hypnosis. I didn't really believe anything would happen. My friend convinced me to find out for myself. Then, 9 hours after my first session, I realized I hadn't thought about cigarettes. If they hadn't fallen out of my jacket pocket, I probably wouldn't have remembered them. I was a nonsmoker after my first session.
Losing weight with hypnosis was far easier than counting calories or starving myself. My behaviors changed and my weight came off. I went from an obese 18 to a slender 10. I far exceeded my goal of losing 25 lbs. Hypnosis made it easy to choose healthy foods and motivated me to exercise. I enjoy eating healthy food more than I ever enjoyed junk food, and I eat less and enjoy the taste of food more. When I was overweight and smoking, exercise was out of the question. I didn't have the energy. Now my energy lasts all day. I'm in shape and feel great.
There was a time in my life when I smoked and overate to procrastinate. Now I get things done. I no longer start projects and put them off for later. I'm so proud of myself! I never pictured myself as a person who could achieve her goals, but Positive Changes gave me the ability to lose weight and keep it off forever. If you're thinking of joining Positive Changes, get there as soon as you can. Don't wait! The minute you start is your new beginning.
