Hello All,
I have been trying to lose weight for almost a year since my son was born and have lost maybe 5 pounds in the last 10 months. I tried Surely Slim and felt great immediately. More Energy, less snacks in between meals. Even my husband has noticed. Thanks Surely Slim 

Arny, congratulations on your weight loss! I have known so many people who have battled their weight for years and it's wonderful you were able to lose. When you say you exercised like crazy, what did you do? Can you share with us your exercise schedule for a typical week? Or even a few days?

Had you tried to lose weight in the past? If so, what did you do differently this time? Any information you can share would be most appreciated and would help other women. Thanks.

Hi Michelle,

The only thing that I can tell you about the program is all of the ads I have been seeing in the paper. It is suppose to change your behavior so that you don't over eat and that you exercise more from what I'm reading. Hope that you find something in your research.

About 15 years ago I tried Hypnosis for weight loss and did not see any change in my weight. I did 2 sessions. I think the advice above checking it out is good advice. Good Luck

Hi Donna!

Before starting any weight loss program, always check with your physician. Also for any specific companies dealing with weight loss, you should always do your homework and check them out with the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org).

Honestly, one thing I have found over the years, different programs work for different people.

Hope this helps

Hi Donna,

Could you please tell me more about Positive Changes? I'd love to do some research on this for all our users.

Can't speak specifically to Positive Changes, but wanted to share a little information about hypnosis and weight loss from the National Women's Health Resource Center Inc.

Weight loss: Hypnosis seems to help with low-to-moderate weight loss, but generally only when combined with some sort of behavioral weight-management program.

Not everyone can be hypnotized. Susceptibility varies, and about 10 to 20 percent of us can't be hypnotized at all. For most uses, however, it's not essential that you be highly hypnotizable to achieve results.

Hypnosis may not be for you if you have certain psychological conditions—particularly those caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. If you suffer from psychosis, severe depression (or another organic psychiatric condition) or antisocial personality disorder, you should probably not attempt hypnosis. These conditions require different forms of treatment; hypnosis is not considered an appropriate treatment option.

Have you tried other weight-loss programs with any degree of success?
