Another week of weight gain, and while I didn’t always make good food choices while traveling, I still think this gain is more about stress and travel bloating than actual food intake weight gain.  The good news is that my busy annual tour is now officially complete, and I’ll be home more often, and can settle back into a routine.  The first thing that needs to happen is I need to drink more water. I’ve been absolutely horrible about my water intake.

I think it’s time to start exploring some new food recipes.  With all the traveling I’ve been doing, I haven’t been cooking at all, and I love to cook.  Normally, with fall approaching, I’d be cooking more comfort food, but I want to break out of that habit and cook some healthier stuff that is still comforting.

What’s your favorite source of healthy AND delicious recipes?

Think about what it’s like to be a fat hypnotist.  Generally speaking, consulting hypnotists are associated with the use of hypnotism for weight loss, smoking cessation, and stress management.  There are lots of other uses, some of which are truly incredible, but most clients come for “the big three” that I listed.

In the consulting world, it’s usually helpful for the consultant to model the outcomes that they are selling to their clients.  If you’re targeting weight loss clients, you probably should be at a healthy weight, yourself.  I was overweight when I started in hypnotism in 2004, and my weight just kept increasing over the years.  So, I avoided weight loss clients.  I took them if they reached out to me for a session, because I knew that I was good at hypnotizing people, and I wanted to help folks, but I didn’t get many requests, because the visual impact is really quite simple.  Not inspiring.
