Testimonials from clients of The Key Hypnosis.
FYI: I AM TRYING TO GET SOME PICS TO SEND IF NECESSARYHabitual Dieter to Fit - If I can do it, so can you!I have been with Julie since 2012 and have lost over 115 lbs (size 20+ to size 6) and have kept it off. Throughout these years and going thru two refreshers, I have improved my eating habits, physical fitness, and - most importantly - health and well-being.Having been a habitual dieter all my life (and a yo-yo dieter), I found Julie's methods/program FREEING. She gives you the tools for success and takes away ALL those "diet" rules that have you chained to the scale and its results. You eat when you are hungry which was one key for me - no deprivation - just eat the right foods (protein). Not specialty foods (or fake foods) but foods at your grocer, restaurants, etc. I am in the best shape of my life thanks to Julie....and I did it all in my 50s. It is never too late. Go to Julie with an open mind, willingness to listen and follow, and you will succeed. I am proof of that!

I submitted a testimonial when I was a few months into the program and wanted to send an update now that I've nearly completed a year. My entire life has changed because of The Key Hypnosis, and I swear to you I have made it through my life's toughest challenges this past year because of the confidence and determination I gained while following the program. Let's talk about willpower. I had next to none. I wasn't a yo yo dieter, I was a diet failure for about 30 years. Couldn't take more than 10-15 lbs off...EVER. Atkins, WW, Slim Fast, Isagenix, Nutrisystem... absolutely nothing worked for me, so I always gave up after a few weeks. Fast forward to August 2017 when I tried Hypnosis as a last ditch effort to take off the weight and ensure my health wasn't about to take a steep nose dive as I neared my 40s. To my utter amazement, it worked! And even more amazingly, I stuck with it. 11 months later and I'm deciding if I want to go just a little further or start going into maintenance soon. I have blasted past my goals! I started as a sausage size 20 and initially wanted to be a 12, but set a stretch goal of 10. I am now a comfortable 8, and I'm pretty sure without the extra skin you have when you basically lose an entire person, I'd probably be a 6. I wasn't even this small in high school. This program gave me back my confidence, my strength and my self-esteem. My family has gone through a very rough year and I never wavered. Not once. And I didn't even care. Julie's Hypnosis broke that emotional tie I had with food. It stopped being a miserable thing to go without sugar and starch, so I was able to stick with it. And each time I made that decision to stay on track, I got stronger and stronger, and so did Julie's suggestions rattling around in my brain!I am now firmly in control of my life, my body, and my mind. My weight was literally the one thing in my life I felt like I had failed at, and now I can say I've truly met and exceeded all the weight goals I set for myself. It's an amazing feeling and I'll be forever grateful I took this step and got the help I needed. I have many healthy decades ahead of me now and I'm leading by example for my kids.

I just finished my 3rd session for weight loss.I honestly think I will miss these sessions. Julie is amazing, funny and so REAL. I feel like this will help so many aspects of life. I already have much more energy and feel more content. people already commenting about how I look.

I have been seeing Julie for a few years now. I started at a size 26/28W - 3XL *My highest weight being an unhealthy 350lbs at age 20*with no confidence or self worth... eating fast food, addicted to bread.... yet, wanting a healthier life and not sticking to what I started. Sitting in a small room in West Springfield- I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. It was Julie. Fast forward some years I’m a size 8/10 - MEDIUM!!!*Approx 170lbs GONE* I’ve found a self confidence I never knew I had - a new life I never thought was possible until Julie. This program is easy and addicting.I couldn’t imagine what my life would be like if I wasn’t introduced to this program. I can’t thank Julie enough for helping me get my life back.
- Ashley Erickson
I struggled w my weight since a young age, tried every diet, had gastric bypass and gained it all back. I was depressed and felt that I would never lose the weight. My mother and I went together to the sessions and believe it or not the whole process was easy. I could actually go anywhere and find something I could eat. I have never been this small in all of my adult life. I am so grateful for Julie and her staff.
I’m so grateful to Julie! She’s changed my life! I tried every det, exercise programs but nothing would work.I started this journey on 10/11/16 and never felt better. I used to love sweets and haven’t or want to touch it at all.I started at a size 14/16. My husband is a doctor and he tells people to go see her. Thank you Julie for changing my life. She’s the real deal and am so grateful to her!

I've been an athlete all my life, and when I started gaining weight in my mid thirties, I was frantic. How could this be happening to me - I'm supposed to be able to stay fit! I lost 50 lbs when I was 44 and felt relieved, but somehow within 10 months it was back with 10 of its closest friends. I know many people out there have experienced or are experiencing this same thing, and that they spending so much time trying to control their eating, accept their bodies, get more exercise, weigh their food, try this plan and that, and fight against their cravings and imminent diseases. It's exhausting and depressing and it feels like there is no way out. I tried hypnosis with a private practitioner several years earlier, and after two fruitless appointments gave it up. At 56 I had thrown in the towel. Then, a great friend told me that her sister-in-law had done this program (ok, she said "this weird program...") with great results and I thought to myself "What the heck, I have absolutely nothing to lose and what if it works?" I was skeptical as I'd unsuccessfully tried hypnosis, but I was also optimistic as my friend and her sister-in-law are intelligent, down-to-earth people. My optimism was well-founded. This program has worked for me from the first day. I've never struggled, and one of Julie's many directives - "eat when you're hungry, not when you're not" - was so freeing for me. No calorie counting, no meal-time planning, no 7 small meals a day, no weighing anything. It freed me from all of the hassles of the normal diet or lifestyle change plans. This program is clear-cut, basic, and easy to follow. Julie talks about free will, and I will tell you that the few times I had what came close to a craving I just said "nope" and that was that. I didn't wrestle, justify, think about it - just "nope." This program is empowering and it's magical. I would recommend not over-thinking, researching or questioning because you will always find naysayers and you will always find an opposite opinion. Simply believe, and then reap the significant benefits of both weight loss and health gains. I call it magic, and to me that's exactly what it is. It's been about 6 months, and I'm down from an 18-20 to a 10-12. I feel great, and I'm comfortable in my body again. I'm back to being me. Of course time will tell if this is as effective as I believe, but it's already felt completely different from every other diet and effort I've made. Get on the waiting list. You have absolutely nothing to lose but your weight!
- Stacey Altieri

I want to let Julie know that I have had remarkable success with the program . I attended my first class in August 2017. Since that time I have gown from a Size 20W or a 2X to a size 12 or 14... I have never ever gotten on a scale. I have no clue what I weigh.. I have handled the return of potatoes well. I no longer have lower back pain that has been chronic for me even after surgery. I have no knee aches. I hate exercise but I do ride a simple bike or take a stroll 3 2 to 3 times a week. I am so grateful for my friend who also went to see Julie several years prior and has been an ongoing support. This was not hard for me to do which has just amazed me. I miss nothing regarding "food wants". I have been to parties, bars, restaurants etc with family & friends. Baked Christmas goodies and never had a taste of one thing... did not want to .. Just thrilled to be able to tell you this and to say thank you for all that you gave me back !!!!JoAnn

The whole experience with Julie was the most out of box thing I have ever done. Was I intimidated, unsure and thinking what the heck had I just signed up for? You bet! But I had the right mind set and the support of one of my customers had success with the program.Immediate results for me with my weight loss, because I did everything Julie said to-do. Also had the support of my family. But the clincher, hands down was making 4 friends from CT. For some reason we 5 found each other and on the last day we gathered in the parking lot, laughing, exchanging emails and promising to get together. We have formed a support group of our own, by texting, offering recipes,And getting together for dinner every 2 months. We share our successes, which we have ALL had and photos of our weight loss. We are friends and ALL agree that the friendship has added to our success, so make a friend in the class, stay in touch and support each other. Julie gave us the tools, it's up to us to make them work. Best of luck to your success in this journey, you can do it!!
I began my journey with Julie and The Key Hypnosis on July 6, 2017. From that day until this, I have not had a craving for the foods that made me overweight! On October 24th I left with my husband and another couple for a riverboat cruise on The Danube River from Budapest to Prague and returned on November 6th. The most amazing thing happened…..I followed Julie's Program perfectly……YES….I SAID "PERFECTLY"! It was MIRACULOUS!!!! First I made arrangements with the airlines and had special meals prepared for me. Some of it was not appropriate but I ate the protein and the veggies given to me. I also called Julie and was told to bring Beef jerky on the plane with me for a snack….which I did!Then when I got on the ship I spoke to our waiter and had everything made that I could eat. It was AMAZING!!! Never once was I tempted with all the food, desserts and German Beer! My friends couldn't believe it! I, on the other hand, found it quite easy. I only saw the foods I could have and it was delicious and very satisfying! The other miracle is that my clothes still fit me when I returned home…..in fact some are getting big on me.I've gone from a 2x or size 18Woman's Petite to an X large or Large and size 16petite which is big on me now. I'm not in the woman's sizes anymore and it feels WONDERFUL!Thank you Julie and all your staff…. your program is an answer to my prayers. I've always had a problem with my weight and now at my age …68…. I have been given a chance at having good health.By the way…my blood work was excellent at my annual physical and my blood pressure medication was adjusted to a lower dose.Thank you again…..I will be forever grateful. God Bless you, Julie!

Julie Ann, today is exactly 3 months since my first session and I am thrilled to share the great results. Not only do I feel fantastic, and my T2 diabetes has been placed firmly into remission, overall I find following your guidance easy and liberating. Whereas it did take some time to fall into a routine, and early on I needed to power through a couple of weak moments, I cannot believe how quickly the weight is coming off. In fact, my motivation to continue is as high now as when I started. To anyone that is questioning how or why this program works, my advice is "just do it", stay focused, and get ready to wear your skinny clothes.
- Rob Sherry
I finished the program in April, 2017. I was a 22 pants, 2X-3X top. By Memorial Day I bought size 18 pants, by September size 16 which are already loose. The weight just keeps melting off. I haven't had cravings and feel satisfied. It takes planning to make meals and bring food or eat before an event, but it is so worth it! The recipes are delicious and easy to prepare. I don't even notice the bread basket when eating out. I made it through Halloween and am making my plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
- Joan Puglia
I can not say enough about this program!! I heard about it in December of 2016. I jumped right on line and saw that there were seats available for the January session. I am the type of person who always does for others and put myself aside - so I decided that I am doing this for me. I called and received a return call within a half hour and I was registered. My first session was January 12th. The willpower that Julie has created in me is tremendous!! I have never had willpower, ever! and I can say to date, that I am down over 60lbs (I still don't know what I weigh-which is fine), by BMI is under 27 from being 36.5. I went from a size 12-14 to a 4-6. I feel fabulous and my doctor couldn't be more thrilled over my numbers. I have not cheated, not once!! Even when people say, "just try it" or "just taste it"! I was never on meds for anything, which was a good thing, but I know I was heading there. My mother had a quadruple bypass 2 years ago after having a heart attack and stents the year before. I didn't want to end up there myself. I have a "fat" belt that I refuse to throw away and can proudly say I am now down 9 notches on that belt!!! Below are pictures of me from two years ago to now. I have a little more to go, to get where I want to be. I truly find this program to be extremely easy and tolerable. I tell everyone who will listen about it. Some people think I am crazy when I say I was hypnotized, but the pictures don't lie.. It shows!! yes, their jaws drop when I show them and my fiancé joins in to say how easy it has been for me. I am beyond elated and forever grateful to have found Julie Ann. Her life struggles made me want to just hug her. I know she enjoys teaching people how to become healthy and I can't say THANK YOU enough!!
- Lisa Murphy
I attended Julie's class in July. For many many years I was treated for stomach issues (IBS). Many doctors had me try different things, medications diets and none were successful. Since the classes in July, eating the way Julie instructed I have not had any issues with my stomach. I did want to lose weight and that is happening, but more importantly not having the stomach problems have changed my way of life. This program is one that I would recommend highly.
- Sara Clark
Attended in July 2017. Today is the three month mark and I’ve lost approximately 50 pounds. I am basing this off of the clothes I am wearing and haven’t work since I was this weight. Another person who attended at the same time was not successful because she didn’t follow the rules. She told me that she 1) weighed herself, 2) ate candy, 3) wrote everything down so she wouldn’t forget. If you listen to Julie and follow her rules then you will be successful. Think I have about 2 more months to go before I begin the next phase. Getting educated by Julie was the best part. Soooo many people have asked me about my weight loss. It is fun to share the knowledge with others. If you value your self worth then go. Your health and happiness are worth every single cent
I began my journey on August 8 and already, not even two full months later, I'm seeing amazing results. Since I don't step on the scale, it's impossible to know for sure, but I can tell you my wedding dress from 12 years and 30 pounds ago not only fits again, but it's loose! I haven’t been this small since I was 24 years old, before two kids! But it's not just weight loss - I have more energy, a more positive outlook every day, confidence, and a sense that I am in control of my life and my choices. I feel attractive again for the first time in years. It's not that I don't want the food around me anymore - it's that I'm fine to do without. Julie has adjusted my thinking in a way that has removed the emotion from eating. I have regained my control, my willpower, and my perspective. My overall goal is 80 lbs and size 10 - who knows how much I'll actually weigh when I get to that size (and honestly, who cares?), but it feels like in just 7 weeks, I'm already at least a third of the way there, nearing the halfway mark. I fully expect plateaus so my body can regroup and heal, but this is still way beyond my expectations. My dress size has gone from 18/20 to 14/16, top size from 1X/2X to XL. It's absolutely unbelievable to me since I've never been able to lose more than 15 pounds before in my life - and believe me, I've tried it all.This program is a huge commitment. You have to be in the right frame of mind to commit your free will fully to the rules, but if you do, you will see a wonderful change in your body and mind. I'm already looking forward to the day I can schedule my refresher to get me ready for maintenance - it's all happening so much faster than I ever thought possible! Julie’s program is changing my life.
After a despite search to loose weight. I had tried every diet that was out there over the past 40 years - finally, I heard of Julie thru someone who had spoke highly of her program; and how she had just completed 12 weeks and lost a lot of weight. I was so despite, I prayed to God to find me an answer.It is now (1) year later - I have gone from a size 26 down to size 14 and I'm not thru yet - I am healthier, happier and more confident than I've ever been. I can climb mountains, walk for miles (even though I had bi-laternal knee replacements and a torn Achilles) and I Feel GREAT! I now know how to eat properly and in what portions - thank you Julie, God sent you into my life so I can help others who need my assistance.Linda
- Linda Kramer
I am so grateful for Julie what she does is beyond a gift. She has graced me with a healing and self love i never knew i had. Its not about the weight loss for me it was about healing my bidy and soul. I started in may size 12 it is now september 4 months later i am into a size 4. You have a gift from god and i am so lucky i got to experience it. Thank you again.
- Megan Renzi
Started this journey March 30, 2016...can't begin to express how thankful I am for this gift! I never loved myself until now...37 years of hating who I was...now I can't get enough of myself! Julie you have an amazing gift and I am forever grateful
I've never been thin and have always struggled with my weight until May 9, 2016! It's been a little over a year since I made the life-changing decision to go to Julie Kibe at The Key Hypnosis in Westfield, MA. I've never felt better and more in control, ever. It's not hocus pocus. Julie teaches you about food, and that the number on the scale means nothing. She gives you the tools and then it's up to your own free will to follow what she teaches. I had tried everything. This was the game changer for me. It's amazing! Thank you, Julie!
- Teresa Morais
Far exceeded my expectations. In 10 months I have gone from a size 50 and 4x t-shirt to a 36 pant and xl t-shirt. I'm still going, this is by far the best thing I have ever done for weight loss. My wife also went through the process and is doing fantastic as well. We are forever greatfull.
- Todd Decker
Julie is not a scientist but she is the first person who ever explained reasonably why we gain weight and how to lose it. Honestly, she intuitively knows things that are NOT obvious to the average or even above average person.. Her plan and suggestions are really very easy to follow and more importantly work. I'm so very grateful to her for sharing this information through her program.
- Kate Basile
In January 2017 I went not knowing what to expect. Can I do this. Being one of the shorter ones I sat in front and was happy to. Scared and excited not knowing me. I did not like me when I went in. I have failed so many things and thinking now this too maybe. The First week I made mistakes and Julie said to a person she waas speaking to 'Do you want to continue" to others i"m sitting there quietly saying yes! I need this . I felt myself cry three times during your sessions . it was my will saying to you Help Me! The Before picture is Halloween 2016 The other was on my year anniversary with my sweetie April 10th a few short months into the program. I do not ever want to go back to that person. I am starting to like me now! Thank you So much Julie. You'll never Know what you are doing for me right now! I still have to work on the confidence piece, but I am on my way. Bless what I have found in you! Dorinda Bell -Hudson Massachusetts

I have been on this journey for almost a year. I owe Julie so much, the things she taught me have changed me inside and out. I never loved myself up until I started this journey. I am beautiful on the inside and out. I started at a 26/28 and I am not in a 16/18. Thank you Julie for the amazing gift!
Give Julie control and she will give you back all of your self control. It's that simple.
I have struggled all my life with weight, size & numbers. Gastric Bypass helped but did not do the trick. However with the help of Julie and Key Hypnosis I am for the first time in my 62 years have a completely different relationship with food. I am not sure how this happened, but for today I am grateful that I have dropped from a tight 3x to a medium in scrubs, my size 16 jeans are too big... What a great feeling that was, I am no longer pre-diabetic, I can breathe, I am no longer short of breath when I work, my joints are happier which helps me move and stay active. I was in the June 29th 2016 class and I am the "Poster Child" at my work for the weight I have lost. Everyone has been following me into a new healthier life style. I am a RN with a better understanding of why I eat and when I NEED to eat. I am so happy to think "How bad do I want it?" I never knew I could have such a will to want something so bad. Thank you very much for giving me back to myself.
- June Axt
Julie, you are one of the most remarkable people I've ever met. Even if I hadn't lost weight, I would still be amazed. But I did lose three sizes in 8 weeks and I was never hungry! The best part is that I have not had any artificial sweeteners, so my 35 year habit of Diet Coke is now over! I feel much better as a parent and now role model healthy eating thanks to you. I have so much respect for you and how you're helping people. Thank you!
- Gail D
I took this course with Julie last August. I am 55 years old and have been overweight almost my entire life. I have done a few diet plans but they never worked and I pretty much gave it up. After loosing a good friend and seeing I another good friend go through bypasss surgery, it scared me so I thought I need to do this once and for all. I need to take control of my health myself and I did. I am down from a 18-20 jeans to a size 12! I haven't wore this size since I was about 12! I have known people that it has worked for and people it did not, in my case it did and I hope to continue this fir my lifetime. I feel good, have more energy, a lot more energy, and I have been told my attitude in life is so much better too! Thank you Julie and Friends!! Happy NewYear!
- Susan LaPlante
I have had gastric bypass in 2004. I gained all the weight back I lost . No one taught me how to eat and why. Julie explains this to you in a way that makes sense. Don't think about this. Just do it . The other day someone was talking to me about having weight issues, I was sympathizing with her. She looked at me and said ' oh have you ever had weight problems'. It dawned on me that no one was looking at me and seeing an overweight person anymore.
- Michele heaton
I took Julie's course at the beginning of August, it's now the first week of November and my body - now a size 12, down from 2x - is galloping ahead and I'm simply following her. For the first time in my life I finally understand my body as a life force in itself, and not as something I have to 'deal with' (often resentfully). And that what I eat is what enables (or disables) this life force to do what it was born to do. And now that I’m feeding it with what it actually needs, the weight is falling off because it doesn’t need that anymore. I was pretty skeptical at first, like so many people, but it’s incredible how liberating this is - to eat as a way to take care of something that’s dependent on me – like a small child, or a puppy (as Julie suggested) – a presence I can actually recognize and love for what it is and for what it does. And it’s SO MUCH FUN to watch ‘her’ thriving ahead of me, instead of being dragged behind me. And it’s certainly is a lot of fun to see how beautiful I’m becoming – and all the compliments that come with that. Hooray for this process, hooray for my tender body! Thank you Julie for opening this up for both of us.
- Melanie Joseph
My best friend heather changed her life with your help back in august. We were on vacation together at Hampton beach she made the trip home to see you. I was with her immediately before and after and the change was beautiful she LOOKED so happy when she came back. Fast forward 3 months. It looks as though she has lost at least 60 pounds. She exudes positivity!!! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping so many people change their lives. I am so happy every day to see her so happy. Jill Smith

So far, so good.I have had only one session so far, I went to the Market after day one to pick up some food for work. Usually when I go into the store for one thing I leave with a container of Helluva good dip, bag of chips, pint of ice cream, a heath bar and sometimes I throw in a homemade woopie pie for good measure. Not this time, same day as the first session, I walked in, grabbed the bare minimum to get me through a shift at work, paid for it and left. I didn't even have that anxiety of missing out on something "yummy" that I usually get. I didn't have to talk myself down or pout or have a tantrum in my mind about what I was missing out on, I just didn't want any of it. Can't wait for the next session.Her staff is very professional and friendly. They have ALOT to do to get everyone signed in and seated, no time for chit chat but they were very friendly. They were like a well oiled machine with a personality. Julie is fantastic, straight to the point, no bull fantastic. For the first time in almost 30 years I feel like there is hope, I finally understand how my mind and body work together and now they can stop fighting and get the job done. Thank you Julie and staff, I am so thankful for this gift of knowledge and control you have opened me up to.
- Tamala Shayne Tacey
I just finished my last session. From session one I could see noticeable changes I can't even explain! I haven't been able to say no to any food my entire life, I've tried every "diet". They worked but then I soon gained it all back and then some. I heard about Julie through my husband who saw coworkers lose. I decided to try it thinking this isn't going to work either. I was very skeptical. I've stopped drinking soda that I haven't been able to kick in over 30 years and I've tried hundreds of times! Julie is absolutely amazing and I'm thankful she shared her gift with me! Thank you Julie!
I found out about Key Hypnosis from a co-worker who 'only' needed to lose about 30 pounds. She told me about all the benefits she'd experienced having done the sessions in February of 2015. I went in October 2015 at my heaviest weight ever. Julie's approach was nothing like I expected, and yet it has completely transformed how I think about food, diet, exercise and myself. One year out, and I am smaller and more fit than ever before. I feel great about myself, finally! One of the most significant 'secondary gains' which I had no idea would have the impact it has is that Julie's approach taps into the 'pleasure principle' which is essentially tamped down by her approach. What that means is that although food is still very pleasurable, the cravings and feelings associated with food and eating are no longer overwhelming. The biggest shift (again, totally unanticipated) is that ALL the many, many years of berating myself around food and equating my weight to my self-worth, and guilting myself for eating anything 'bad,' etc. etc. has been completely silenced. I am no longer at war with myself around how to eat and be healthy. I have never been happier, and I only wish I'd found Key Hypnosis years earlier! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I started seeing Julie a few years ago at the size of 28w. I am currently at a size 16. I have always been a slow loser when it comes to weight management but seeing Julie has been a life altering experience on more than just a physical level. Her plan has helped me not only make better life choices in the kitchen but also getting more active and living life more. I can't thank Julie enough, I can't wait to go to my refresher in a couple weeks!
- Ashley Erickson
I cannot thank Julie enough. My life has completely changed due to my renewed health and reduced size. I went from a 16 to a 6 in eight months, and haven't been hungry yet! My cholesterol is normal and diabetes is history.On a scale of 1 to 10, Julie deserves a 100. Seriously. I have tried practically every diet known to man. Sometimes I lost a lot of weight, but I always gained it back. One of the best parts of the hypnosis, is that this is a permanent life change. This is not a diet. It is sustainable and it is easy. I would highly recommend getting your name on the list. Don't even think about it. Just do it! You will be so happy you did!Thank you, Julie, for changing my life! I am eternally grateful.
- Julie Joy
I found out about Julie from a close friend that went to through the program. She had such great success and lived a very similar lifestyle so I had to at least try. I can honestly say it was the best thing I ever did. Julie is amazing. I started November 3rd, 2016 and was a size 12/14 and by January I was wearing a size 6. I also went to Julie's maintence program to how to maintain my weight. I now continue to wear a size 6 very comfortably and never once have felt hungry or confused by what to eat. I highly recommend taking the leap and joining the program!
- Trish Marchetti
I started my weight loss journey with Julie Ann in April, 2015. I lost 55 lbs fairly quickly -- back down to my college weight (I am 55 years old.) Healthier than I've ever been! It's been one year and 4 months - still wearing my bikini!
- Kerry McDowell
I have been on the program for almost two years now. I came in very skeptical, especially about the hypnosis aspect, which I didn't believe in at all. I was very wrong. The most amazing part of the program is how immediately calm I became after the very first session with Julie. Suddenly I didn't think about food much anymore, and I was never anxious about what I would be eating, how much I ate, or if it was "good for me." This feeling has been sustained over the past two years. I almost don't feel like I'm dieting at all. It feels more like my relationship with food has changed forever. I still enjoy food, but it is much more transactional now than emotional. I have plenty of choices, and I know what I can and what I can't eat. I went from a tight 38 pant size to a loose 34, and have been taken off most of my medications. I have never felt better and I am a big believer in what Julie's program teaches.
- Gary Rudnick
Its been 11 weeks today since i started the program, the weight falls off. I don't look at bread, cookies etc. My goal was lose 35 lbs and down to 34 shorts. I am very close to my goal. I love when people ask what I'm doing to lose weight! This was a very easy choice for me, thank you!
- Peter C Walbert
I have been on this journey beginning October 2013. I remember receiving the call and booking my appointments. I cried like a baby because I just knew I had made a life changing decision. Julie is absolutely amazing and I consider myself incredibly blessed that she shares her amazing gift with all of us. I never could have lost the weight without Julie. My life has been forever changed and I am extremely grateful.
- Sharon Sears
Julie is an amazing person. She truly cares for her clients and sets standards to follow. After all, we have come to her because we want to lose weight and have not on our own. I started in July 2015 with Julie's sessions and have gone from a size 14 to size 4/6. NEVER would I have imagined how "easy" this has been for me to accomplish. This took me about four months! WOW. When people see me and are shocked they ask me how I lost so much weight and I give total credit to Julie. It feels like I "cheated" because it was so easy.Have patience in the beginning. As Julie says we took years or a lifetime to pack on this weight so it's going to take just a little while and then, Oh My Word, the weight just falls off you. Have promised myself that I WILL be in these sizes next July and the July after, etc. All thanks goes to Julie.
This was the most amazing thing I ever did. I went from a size 18 to a size 4. I have kept off most of it. Going on 2 years now. I did go up a bit when I started eating some things again. You just need to know your limits and get back to it if gets out of reach. I tried it all this is the only thing that worked. I would recommend this to anyone.
- Patti Webster
Thank you for all that you have done for myself and others like me who have struggled with their weight for so long, I am finally free from my cravings and they will never rule my life again. I attended a refresher on March 3rd and I feel renewed and ready to complete my weight loss journey. Thank you also for telling our group about cloud bread, it is wonderful to have the option of a "sandwich" again, just love it!
Today marks 1 year since my first session and it has been an incredible journey. I was all in, ready for big changes in my life when I began, and I got them. I started the program at a size 28/3x and today I went clothes shopping (a regular & happy event now) and I am into a size 10! 8 sizes in 1 year! I am a huge believer, I have never felt so good and healthy. My doctor is amazed at my results, all my vitals are in great shape. My life has been completely transformed because of Julie. I am still 100% on the program, and have not once strayed in the year. I have encouraged and inspired many people to take this journey and that's also extremely rewarding. Thank you for giving me back control of my life.
- Una Morabito
It has been 1 year and 4 months since my first session. I was wearing a pant size 22 when I began. I now wear a size 10. I have so much more energy and have an easier time keeping up with my grandson. I went zip lining for the first time last summer. Something I was not able to do before as I exceeded the weight limit. Julie made it so easy to stick to the diet. I have not reached my personal goal yet and continue eat meat and veggies. I even bake cookies, fudge, cakes, etc. for others with no temptation to eat any of it. I am forever grateful to Julie and her staff. I feel like a different person. I would recommend The Key Hypnosis to any one struggling with weight issues.
- Michelle Farr
I finished my third session a month before my husband passed away. I had been doing well on the program and was almost down a size when those who love and feel sorry for me kept "giving me permission" to eat whatever I wanted to.It has been just over 3 months since then and I have been on and off the program. I have been understandably unable to get my act together . Today I had Julies refresher session and I just want to tell you how good I think it was. And...Julie you really are nice!!!…you couldn't hide it today!…though I do still hear you yelling at me ..in a good way...in my head from the first session!.. You made me realize I have the choice and the power to do this . I will do this and i will stay healthy for myself and my children.(I will update you on my progress )I want to tell you that I am thankful for you Julie. I and many other people are thankful for you. Most especially at this time of year, I need you to know that I am so thankful for th gift you have given me.Margaret
- Margaret Ricciardi
Thank you Julie. You saved my life. I was never heavy as a child so after I had children in my 30s, I gradually gained weight. Once I hit size 18 and the scale said 200 pounds, I knew if I did not change my life, I would be in trouble. Then a personal tragedy struck and only reinforced my need to get my own health in order. On 1/14/15, my adventure changed. After nine months, I introduced the potato and am working on gaining those 5 pounds. I was really surprised at how easy I found to stick to it and not cheat. I am now used to it and can't even imagine eating the way I did before. I do miss some things and know that they cannot be gone forever and i do know when I can have those things again. Just not right now. For my birthday, I did not have any cake and my wonderful husband made me a meat loaf cake. When you have enough determination and want it bad enough, you can succeed. Thank you Julie for giving me the tools to live a healthier life. I went from a size 18 to size 8 in 9 months. You can do it too if you want it bad enough. Now the challenge begins in keeping it off and living the healthy life.
- Jill Turner
Having never been successful in our adult life in losing weight we have to say this program was very simple to follow and very successful! We started Sept 25, 2014 the day the first photo was taken. Second was Oct 1 2015. Have no idea how much we weigh or what we lost but feel so healthy! Linda went from a size 24 to a size 12 and I went from a sausage 18 to a size 8. Both sizes are what we stated as our goals on the Sept 24th class when asked. I'm amazed and grateful! Not sure how this works but if you trust and follow this program exactly- it works! It was the easiest thing I have ever done! A life changer!
- Kim Holstrom
My results in 3 short months have been phenomenal!!! I had my annual physical today and I'm down 50 POUNDS!! No cravings what so ever and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything !! I've never felt better!! Thank you Julie, you have a gift that is helping so many people!! You have changed my life!!
- Kim Taglia
3 years ago I went to my first session a bit spectipal afrer years on other program. I was size 20 for many years.I am now size 12 after going back as much as size 6-8...Still do not smell fresh bred (my biggest temptation) or dessert.Yes, I am hypnotized and that help a lot since I am not tempted to reach for other foods. I found it very easy to follow.Thank you Jullie
- Rachel Sampson
I am now living in the "After Life" of Julie's wait loss journey. I will always refer to myself as a "Keyster". I still wear my key necklace and bracelet. It's been 1 1/2 yrs. since my sessions with Julie. I got to below my stated goal size of 10/12 in 11 months.A size 26 to a size 6.(10 sizes) What is so wonderful is I'm feeling my way through the "After Life" eating things I enjoy but keeping it as clean, healthy & as locally grown as possible. When my new goal size 6 gets slightly snug....I have the tools to loosen them up within a few weeks....that in itself is worth everything. I have learned to make myself accountable for what I consume. This experience has give me a new life and a new appreciation to being good to my body because it is the only one I have. The medical, physical and mental improvements have been nothing but amazing.....My self & my family thank you, Julie, for sharing your gift and giving me the tools to live my life happy & healthy the best I can!!!
- Martine Dorsey
Thank you Julie! You have transformed my life. I went from over a size 12 down to a size 6 in about 2 ½ months. I have changed my lifestyle from being so centered around food, to eating good foods when I’m hungry and being indifferent to food at other times and sweets. I don’t miss anything about my eating habits before. I feel so much better, as well as look like I did when I was in my 20s. (I’m 54 now.) The weight loss has also eliminated my knee pain, reduced sleep apnea episodes, helped me control my bladder and boosted my self-esteem! My blood test results even came back normal, including sugar levels and kidney functions which were on watch before. Your program has helped so much with my will power, in fact, I don’t even need will power anymore – it’s so easy to eat this way now. I always thought I knew how I should be eating to be healthy, but I didn’t, and now I can honestly say that I AM a healthy person!

The "Before Photo" is from July 4th, 2014. We started the 1st Class on July 8th, 2014The "After Photo" was taken 5 days ago on July 4th,2015We are still on the diet which changed all our eating habits & our lives.I do think pictures are worth a thousand words!I wrote previously about A1C values and that still holds true. Lower Numbers & Less Meds. Thanks Again Julie!
- John & Linda Donnelly
When I first heard about the key I was so excited to join the waiting list that I did nothing but eat meat and drink water to prepare myself for the class. Call me silly but when I saw Julie I was almost star struck, she has such a way about her when she walks in the room its unreal. My last class was April 27th and since then I have lost 3 pant sizes and my stomach is starting to go away!! It didn't go on over night so its not going to come off over night, I am a work in progress and I am so excited to be able to of been apart of her work!! I tell everyone about her, and I can't wait to see where I am 6 months from now =)
- Jaclyn Aiston
I took my first class in March 2013 and a little of a year later I am still keeping the weight off. There have been times when I struggle but after attending a refresher class I am quickly put back on track. I have struggled with weight all of my life and have tried every kind of diet and exercise program. This is the only program that has made a difference that I can see and have been able to stick with. Julie is truly an amazing person. What she is able to do for people is a gift! When I took my first class I was a size 42 and now I am a size 36!
- Kevin McDade
I am one day away from attending my third and final class and I have already gone down from a size 16 to a size 12!!! It feels great and I am trying new recipes from the site and they're really good. Thank you!
- Debra Maymon
After watching others have great success on Julie's program, I joined the wait list about a year ago. 6 months into her program and I can honestly say I am the thinnest, healthiest and happiest I have ever been with myself. I found Julie to be powerful and her program unbelievable and amazing. I still have a ways to go but I am enjoying life while I look good!
Started Julie's program in September, 2014 and have not only gone from a size 18 to a size 10 already (my goal is an 8 so I'm almost there!) but today my doctor took me off my medication for high blood pressure! I've been taking something for high blood pressure since 2000! It is a happy day indeed! Thank you Julie!
Hi Julie,I wanted to let you know about some good news I just received from my Doctor's office. I had an appointment yesterday and they did bloodwork. When you get a call that quickly regarding your visit, I thought for sure it was something bad. But they called to tell me that I show no signs of type 2 diabetes that I was diagnosed with 2 years ago. Although I haven't lost all the weight I want yet, I want to thank you and your program for helping me get on the right track. Just the weight I've lost so far has helped me feel better about myself. It has helped with getting my blood pressure under control. Getting that news today made me so happy that I needed to share. I know that because of your program it is helping me realize what I want and how to achieve it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

The “Key” to my physical & mental freedom"The Key" to my Mental & Physical Freedomby Martine DorseyI started my Journey with The Key Hypnosis on Jan. 20th 2014. After 10 1/2 months I am now ready to embark on the maintenance part of this amazing, physical, mental, emotional & medical transformation!I have been fighting obesity since I was 12 yrs old. I was a scrawny 12yr. old until I broke my arm the second day of summer vacation and because I couldn't play much with my friends, I ate my way through the summer and set up my "fat cells" for life. Even as a young teen, I tried every fad diet. I have lost & gain hundreds of pounds. This continued into my early 40's. Then I pretty much gave up on dieting because I would try and fail so often.I was a CNA for 35 yrs.....so I guess you can call me a professional caregiver which is my nature at home and at the hospital. So, in my mind, there was no time to concentrate on me. That needed to change to save MY life! I went to my Dr. (which I do yearly) in Nov. of 2013 and she suggested Julie. I was getting desperate. The Dr. was ready to increase my Metformin for my diabetes. She told me that she had many patients on The Key Hypnosis who had been successful. The following week I signed up. From my first session, I was hooked! I was changed from that moment on. I was mentally ready and with Julie's guidance and GIFT that knew I would see this through. I have to say, Julie made it easier than I ever imagined! I set my mind to the fact I was going to follow her instructions to the letter. I do have to tell you, I was going to make this worth every penny it cost me. I worked hard for my money! My health, myself esteem and wanting to watch my grandson grow up had a lot to do with my "mindset".I was one of the extremely fortunate ones that lost quickly. Really don't know how that is possible because the last 15yrs., that was definitely NOT the case. I remember Julie saying that the longer you "yoyo" dieted and ate badly, you actually could put your metabolism in reverse. My husband would say..."You don't eat a lot and your always busy and moving between work & home....I don't understand why you can't seem to lose".....he was frustrated right along with myself. When Julie said in my session that "You didn't have to exercise"....I thought I had died and gone to heaven!!! But after 4 months and going down at least 3 sizes, I felt I needed to move. Even if it was just to get my blood flowing. I started out really slow due to issues of working 35 years as a CNA. Lower back, rotator cuff, fusion in neck, flat feet issues. All which I might add are all 85% better!!!! Also, NO more diabetic medication and only on 1/4 of BP meds.(high blood pressure runs in my family and is non-weight related) So my exercise consists of 30 mins. on elliptical daily(weekends off) Planking for as long as I can hold it(which is 2 min. 40 secs. due to rotator cuff issues)daily and a two mile walk in good weather in place of elliptical. I am retired 64 yr. old. I feel better than I did over 15 yrs ago. I am ready to tackle maintenance the same way I did with the weightloss part. I think my success has a lot to do with "just doing it"!! I would make sure I always had something "key friendly" available. And made it part of my life without "over analyzing" it. Like Julie said in my sessions..."Do exactly what I tell you.....it is not Rocket Science"!!!! So I go about my life enjoying, so much more, non food related milestone, pleasures and a love for life that I didn't have before "Key". And I am mindful on what I put in my body and how it will affect me in the long run. And I will always, "EAT WHEN I'M HUNGRY, NOT WHEN I'M NOT"!!!- Martine Dorsey

I went to Chris to quit smoking when I was ready.. Other people had tried to get me to quit and it didn't work. I went into see Chris with an open mind.. And it worked!! I loved smoking and I haven't thought once about smoking since I walked out of his class. It's truly amazing. I recommend it to anyone that wants to quit for themselves.

I started as a size 16, felt like crap, lived on junk food. I am now a size 8, have a wonderful sense of well being, and respect my body for the temple that it is. She truly saved my life, I am sure I had all the symptoms of pre-diabetes. I am 59 and this is the first time in my life I have finally won the battle against weight gain.
- Linda Belkas
Julie and staff, please know I appreciate that you all work so hard to bring good health to so many. In seven short months I am at a size and a half to go but this life changing experience is beyond anything I imagined possible. The changes in my life around how I relate to my body and the value I place on what and why I eat are incredible. The knowledge around food I now have and put into place every day brings peace and joy into all areas of my life. THANK YOU! It speaks to the impact one has on others when they follow their soul's purpose.

I'm not talking about a scale. A1C is the range to show blood sugar, not daily like a glucose meter. A1C covers the last 90 days. The current acceptable range according to LabCorp is (4.8 - 5.6)My wife Linda and I went to our first class with Julie on On 07/08/14 my A1C was 10.3. On 07/31/14 my A1C was 8.7 Down-1.6 in 23 Days in to the diet.On 10/28/14 my A1c is 6.9 Down-Another 1.7 in 88 Days In 114 days A1C has dropped -3.4.How much do I weigh? Who cares! I'm happy, my doctors happy, I feel great, Everything fits comfortably.Thank YOU, Julie for saving lives because I'm sure I'm not the only one!John Donnelly

I began my life changing experience with Julie on 9/11/13. I don't have any words to thank her for showing me what I could do. Those of you that have shared time with Julie know what I'm talking about, those who haven't , I can't explain the gift she has. It's so much more than FOOD. I left her that first night knowing I was going to achieve my goal! I have "dieted" my way up & down & up again for years. Never having the ability to stick to anything. By noon of day one I would be justifying some type of "bad" food. Just a bite......1 year plus down the road I have absolutely stuck to my Julie program. I have gone from having lots of social anxiety & just all around low self esteem to some one that is : happy , gaining some confidence & just totally enjoyed her only sons wedding! I didn't even run or hide when the photographer came by. I never would have enjoyed this special day without her. I have not reached my goal yet, but am confident I will. Julie has given me a second chance at life. I am so grateful and wish everyone that felt as I did could meet her. Thank you from the bottom of my happy heart. Ps. My horse says thank you too
- Rachel Pietraszkiewicz
I heard about Julie in May of 2012 from a dear friend Joyce who had visited Julie and looked absolutely marvelous. After much thought and consideration eventually, I booked a session. I started my own journey in Feb of 2013 as a size 16. I had my doubts and fears, (mostly in myself and my ability to follow through) as nothing ever worked for me in the past. Within a month of my first session, my clothes was fitting a little looser, and each month after that I noticed even more drastic changes. I followed everything I could remember from my sessions with Julie, I never went hungry, and I was actually eating more than I ever have before! The weight just melted off, each month I drop an entire size, by Christmas, 10 months later, I had actually reached my goal, I was a size 2, I couldn't believe it, I cried, I laughed, I cried some more. I was a new woman, a woman I was proud to be, my confidence, and social skills have grown so much. I tell everyone about my journey, and the miracle gift that Julie is so kind to share with us. I feel her gift gave me back my life, a better life in fact, and if I can share that gift with others, I feel that is the least I can do, I wish everyone could experience the feelings of pride and joy that I now have. This has been the easiest and most rewarding change.
- Carla Augusto
I began my hypnosis weight loss journey in the summer of 2012, as a size 26 with high cholesterol and heading in the direction of Type 2 diabetes. Within 6 months, I was in a size 8. Now I can hike mountains with my husband again, and I fit in my wedding dress in time for our 25th anniversary party. Julie's program has restored my energy and improved my health...and I have kept the weight off for more than two years. I highly recommend this program. Julie is amazing!
- Susan McGlew
I want to thank you Julie for saving my life; that may sound like an overly dramatic statement but that is exactly what you and your program have done. I have been following your program for just three short months and have gone from a size 24 to a 16/18! I have more energy at 43 than I did at 23 and I can now easily get down on the floor to play with my daughter, what a pleasure that is! I don't have to guess before I sit down if a chair is too narrow to accommodate me, I can cross my legs comfortably, and I can climb stairs without losing my breath or having joint pain. Thank you, thank you, a thousand times I thank you.
- Michelle Seaver
When I walked into The Key Hypnosis on May 20, 2013, I was 365 pounds and couldn't get up off my couch or climb stairs without pain. My left ankle was buckling under the strain of my weight, complicated by corrective surgery I'd had when I was younger. I had to wear a very conspicuous and VERY uncomfortable brace and could only stand up for very short periods of time without pain in my ankle and back.I went home from my first session with Julie thinking, "There's no WAY I'm ever going to be able to do this!" I had developed an emotional attachment to food that was slowly killing me. I was eating fast food at least 1 meal a day, usually more. I thought it was a lost cause. How would I EVER live without fast food and sweets? It seemed hopeless and I walked out of there feeling defeated.Then something amazing happened. I made the decision that I was going to follow the plan, just for one meal. I made it through, grudgingly, and went on to the next, each time making the decision that I was going to do this, do it right, and succeed. I kept making that decision over and over until I didn't have to consciously do so anymore, and that didn't take long... THREE DAYS in, I found myself having to tighten my belt. TWO WEEKS in I could stand up from a sitting or kneeling position unassisted. I lost an incredible amount of weight the first three months and have been losing steadily (but much more slowly) ever since. At almost 16 months in I've hit my original goal. I started out at a size 46/48 waist and a 19 collar (that's about a 4x tee shirt). Today, I'm a 34/36 waist and 16.5 collar. My shirt size is L or XL depending on the cut. I have no more back pain and I have ditched the ankle brace completely. Julie Kibe gave me my life back when I am certain it was almost over. She made me "break up" with the food that was killing me and develop a non-abusive relationship with food that I am sure will stay with me and keep me looking and feeling great for a good long time. Today I get to ride roller coasters and go kayaking and bicycling with my son and that alone makes it easy to say no to the foods that got me into so much trouble (that and the fact that I'm officially better-looking at 42 than I was at 17!!).

I wrote you3 months ago with a status report. I happy to add that today I went for my annual physical. My A1C level was 4.1. My Dr. said I am no longer diabetic. He can't even say that I'm pre-diabetic and told me to stop taking the Metformin. I got home and threw out a 1/2 bottle of pills and I'm the healthiest I have ever been.When I started the program last September, my Dr. was skeptical but said to give it try and see. Now he has several patients on the plan and he is continually decreasing or eliminating the medications that his patients are on...he's a believer, too!
- Amy Lamica
While it is only 8 weeks since my first session, I can't believe how I look and feel. I am wearing clothes that I have not been able to wear in 3+ years and I have not wavered from the program. I have had no cravings and am even enjoying my increased activity. I have more stamina than before and have many less joint aches and pains. I am loving this journey, thank you Julie!
- Betsy Rudden
I started the program on April 8, 2014 and within 72 days I have made significant progress. Within the first three weeks, I was no longer taking my blood sugar medication. Furthermore, I went to the doctor today and she has taken me off of my blood pressure medication. My physician was talking about possibly having gastric bypass surgery during my check up in November and now there is hope that I can do this without surgically altering my body. When I first started the program my doctor told me that I had a BMI of 52. Today, it was 40. I still have a long ways to go to reach my goal size, however, I feel I am finally in control thanks to the tools that Julie has giving me. My husband also attended the same sessions and it seems as if the weight is melting off of him. I am excited to say that my daughters will be coming in July and they are super motivated by our success. I am so thankful for the gift that not only I have received but my whole family will be healthier because of this program. Thank you
- Kelley Tetreault
When I started in September, I weighed 171 lbs & wore a size 16. I had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and was taking 850mg of metformin, twice a day. I go to the Dr's every 3 months to keep the diabetes in check. Today I went and my Dr. came in the room saying "this is just to good to be true". My A1C was at 5 so he cut my meds in half AGAIN (down to 500 mg once a day) and said that when I go back in September that if it's the same, he's going to say I'm not diabetic and take me of all meds!P.S. He has 4 other patients on this program and he's loving the results he's seeing!

I came to The Key Hypnosis to see Chris on April 12, 2014 with a severe fear of planes to the point it was interfering with my everyday life. I couldn't look at a picture of a plane or look at a plane in the sky. I would have dreams 3-4 nights a week I was in a plane crash and I would wake up from a deep sleep in full panic when a plane flew over my apartment building. Even though I had this intense phobia I still wanted to be able to travel. When my best friend of 20 years moved to California this passed January, I knew I would have to get over my fear to be able to see her. I came to Chris not really knowing what to expect. I have to say- he is amazing. Right after my session with Chris I felt so comfortable and I took a ride to Bradley Airport and sat at the end of the runway and watched all the planes take off and I was fascinated because I never looked at them before. SIX days after my session, I was on a plane to Florida for Easter with no medication and absolutely no fear. Instead of the dreams I have had about being in plane crashes, I now have dreams about being on beaches in the Caribbean and traveling the world. I am ecstatic to say I have two more trips planned- one in two weeks to head back to Florida for my birthday and I will be flying to see my best friend in California the week of July 4th! Chris- I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me my freedom back. I really couldn't have done it without you. You have a gift- and you are amazing. I recommend Chris to anybody who suffers from anxiety or phobias. He is truly amazing. THANK YOU!!! (below is a picture of me on the plane! having a blast!)

Before doing this program, I was a size 22. I was tired, uncomfortable, and worst of all, I was beginning to lose my confidence. I started at the beginning of October and am still going strong. I recently went to a refresher session and plan to start maintenance very soon. I went from a size 22 to a size 10 in about 7 months. I enjoy exercise now and am proud of my accomplishments. This program gave me my life back. I feel beautiful, confident, and healthy.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I just got back from having my blood work done which is the first time since I completed my visits to you. My A1c has dropped from 7.4 to 6.1 so my insulin was lowered, my blood pressure was 110/70 and is usually higher, and I am walking longer distances and not having as much pain. This after just 6 weeks!! I can't wait to see what my future numbers will be!! Thank you so much...........

This has been an amazing experience for me. Before hypnosis I was overwhelmed by food advertisements, fast food on every corner and convenience. I succumbed to drive thrus and processed foods. What hypnosis did for me is quiet the noise, the silence gives you a respite to regain control and heal the damage you have done to your body eating unhealthy foods. It's not that you don't ever want something but it's that you become strong enough to control your impulses. Julie gives you peace and resets your willpower. This is how you become strong and healthy and that is what this is about. Health. Size 20 to Size 8

Thanks to Chris, I've been smoke-free since March 1st,2014! I haven't been smoke-free for over 30 years. It's a very emotional thing to realize your body is finally healing, and that you DIDN'T need those cigarettes after all. My heart is full of gratitude. I've recommended you to MANY people. Again, thank you so much.

By the time that I was in my fifties, I had given up on trying to lose weight, and had just tried to accept that I would be a size 20-22 forever, although that was never how I pictured myself in my mind. A friend with the same struggle had seen Julie with dramatic results and recommended her. I believe that there are mysteries of the human brain that we have only just started to tap into, and that Julie has an extraordinary ability in this regard. Never Never NEVER had I been able to resist the siren song of food, but now it's not a big deal at all. My mind is capable of making good decisions, and I have attained my goal of size 6-8 in about a year and a half, and never felt deprived. I never tire of my husband telling me that I'm amazing. But I regard myself as lucky; lucky to have found the Key Hypnosis and Julie Kibe.

I was desperate to try anything that would rid me of this terrible anxiety I was feeling. I had a hard time getting through day to day activities. I felt my children had become more capable than I was and that is when I found Chris Gelonese. I called and was put on a list and of course wanted to get right in. It took about a month to get an appointment so call right now. You won't be disappointed. Chris has an amazing gift. I had been taking anxiety medicine for 5 months and it wasn't helping. I knew I had to do something because I couldn't stand to live another minute like this. I drove all the way from Cape Cod that Saturday morning and I have to say it was one of the best decision I have ever made. When I returned home, my husband asked me how I felt. I said- "I don't feel any different right now." It took about 10 days from the time I met Chris to being free from my anxiety. I didn't think I would be able to work again but I just passed my real estate exam and was hired by a wonderful company. I also was appointed to be a Notary Public! Thank you Chris for this amazing gift. I prayed for at least one day of relief for it has continued on day after day. I can't express my gratitude for freeing me from the pains of anxiety.
I finally decided to post this picture to Julie's page-I am so thankful that my path in life crossed with Miss Julie's.....I was an 18-20 when I started with Julie in 2011 and now I am a 6-8, working on being a 4-6. This year is my 30th High School Reunion, I have never been to ONE, but now I am READY to go to my very first one ever!!!!!! Julie is a wonderful inspiration, very motivational. I am appreciative of all she has taught me, and am enjoying my life SO much now!!!! Thank you thank you thank you is all I can say!
I started with Julie on April 17, 2012 at a size 20/22, but October 2012 I was a size 6! It has been nearly 2 years & Im still maintaining. I was 42 & miserable with a 5year old daughter who I couldn't keep up with. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol amongst other things & my Dr. told me I would never as my daughter grow up if I didn't lose weight. Thank you is not enough for what you've given me Julie Anne, I will be greatful to you for the rest of my life!
I must admit I went to see Julie not quite sure what hypnosis was all about and quite frankly if I even believed it. I had this image in my head of a couch and waving timepiece... But I was 43 years old and needed help getting my shoes on and forget about sitting on the floor and playing with the kids; my body always hurt. At 5'2" I weighed 275 pounds in November 2012; I squeezed into a size 24 pant. I had struggled to get to the 275 for over 6 months on my own having hit my all time high of 298 pounds. I just couldn't figure it out...I thought I was doing everything to lose weight on my own. But every time I would lose some weight...it would come right back. My body seemed to think 280ish was a good number!!! Today I wear between a 6 and an 8; I have so far maintained this for four months. I hike with my family! I FEEL good! Thank you does not seem enough to say to Julie for giving me the tools to change my life...thank you Julie!
I don't even know where to begin. My journey over the past 15 months has been beyond amazing. The aggravation, frustration, and anger I have always had when dieting completely disappeared after my first session with Julie. I accept my way of eating and my way of life now without reservation. It simply is! Today (12/17) is my 40th birthday and everyone keeps asking me how I feel about turning 40...if a picture is worth a thousand words, then as you can see, I am feeling pretty great about it! A picture is clearly worth a thousand words.I had my first session in September 2012 and have not gone off the program once during that entire time. I have gone from a size 22/24 to a size 10 and am unbelievably happy at the results. I know I could not have done this without The Key Hypnosis and the support of Julie and her staff. Thank you for giving me my life back!

Exactly one year ago and at my highest weight ever, even at 9 months pregnant, I received a call from my sister. She knew my pain in struggling to lose weight. I wore it like a badge of shame. I tried every diet imaginable with no success. I was resigned to the fact that it would never come off. She told me about Julie's program and what she was doing. I made the call in October and my first session was just before Thanksgiving. I am proud to say that since then I have gone from a size 16 to a comfortable size 8 (which have begun to bag out by the end of the day). Putting the weight loss aside, the feeling of being in control, healthy and most of all confident is priceless to me. I have never once gone off program. This includes all holidays, summer BBQ's and a recent trip to Las Vegas. There is no place where this way of eating can't be applied. My husband will begin his journey in January. I guess I have been an inspiration to him. Thank you, Julie. You have made such a difference in my life!
Julianne was able to give me the focus and mindset necessary to reteach my brain how to think about eating.this isn't a diet it's a lifestyle..I'm not the type to measure, count calories or weigh my food. What she does is teach and it works.I was on the verge ofof size 12 and have maintained size 4 for two years now. She gave me the control back. Thank you!
I saw Julie in April for 2 sessions, but I had to travel unexpectedly and they were kind to fit me into my 3rd session in June. I was not successful at first because I got a stomach virus, so I added carbs back to my diet. I was told that Julie would try to undo what I did and to have faith that my last session would work. Well, it did! I remember waking up the next morning realizing that if I ate sugar, I would stay fat. That was on June 10,2013 and today is Sept 4, 2013 and I have gone from a 2X top to an XL and my pant size has gone from a 16W to a misses 12! My goal is to be a size 10, but at this rate, I might end up an 8! My doctor weighed me but did not tell me, but she said I weigh less than I have in the last 4 years! She said my blood sugar levels came down and my blood pressure came down! I stopped getting heartburn and stomach aches. This is the best I have felt physically in years and I look great! Thank you Julie!

THANK YOU JULIE!!!! I started the program in mid December during the holidays no less! I sailed through the holidays, never wavering as Julie gave me the strength I needed to do it. I started as a size 14/16 and by June I was a 4/6 (my original goal was an 8!) I went shopping the other day and actually bought some size 2's - I never imagined this would be possible and I feel sooooo good! Thank you Julia Ann Kibe.
I began this journey on August 16, 2013 and have not looked back. When I began this journey I was a size 22 and am now a size 12 with a few more to go! Julie is absolutely amazing and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to restart my life
I attended my first session along with my best friend after struggling for years to lose weight. Nothing was working prior to seeing Julie. I was getting bigger and bigger, and the frustration grew along with my pant size. It was depressing and I had almost thrown in the towel and decided I wasn't meant to be thin again. All that changed by the time I left that first session. Literally. I felt different even on that drive home. This has been the EASIEST program to follow and I do not feel deprived. Who would when you can eat out at any restaurant by just making smarter, healthier choices? I reached my goal in about 10 months. I started at 14+ and now wear mostly 4's. I am amazed at how healthy I feel and look. I have received so many compliments of how healthy my skin looks. This past year has been an incredible journey for me and my best friend who has been just as successful. Julie gives us an amazing gift! And as an added bonus, I've become a pretty good cook from having to become creative with my recipes. Another goal achieved!

In January 2012 I was a size 22 and thought going to Julie would give me will power so I could follow a weight watchers program. I was totally convinced after the first week that this was the plan for me. Never before has a diet been so easy. I dropped weight fairly quickly and felt amazing all along the way. I am now down to a size 8/10 for the first time in my life. It has totally changed how I look and feel about myself. My success has led to many family members coming to Julie as well all succeeding as I have. Thank you Julie for all you do! You are amazing! The support from your staff has been wonderful as well.
- Sandy Mason
I am a typically dieter, or I should say WAS! Every diet you can think of, I've tried. Succeeded and failed after the weight loss "high" wore off and I got comfortable. I heard about Julie and saw the results in a coworker. I went for my first session with Julie in August 2012 at a size 14 by Christmas I was in a size 6 and by late winter/spring a 2-4. Never in my life have i ever been this size! It was an easy and comfortable weight loss. Julie has a special ability to really reach the inside of you. She actually spoke words that I had said to myself. I have been to a refresher class to start maintenance now. I am afraid but her encouraging words and thorough explanations have made me feel secure and ready to tackle this next chapter in my life change (not diet)! Thank you Julie for my success!
- Amy Fearn
I started my journey in November 2012 at a size 16, pre-diabetic and high cholesterol. I was afraid this was not going to work for me. Boy was I proven wrong. I have felt this is the easiest eating plan to follow. Pushing away the cravings is not difficult. I am extremely happy with the results. I am now a very healthy and active size 6. Thank you so much Julie....I could not have done this without you!
- Corine Langevin
I started with Julie on sept. 2012. at time I was a 60 waist since then it june 26th I am now a 48-50 on several diabetes meds and other meds I now longer take diabetes meds anymore. I got a long way to go but at least I have a chance now. so thank you Julie. I know people always say you saved my life but I can honestly say you did

When I first came to Key Hypnosis in 2011, I was wearing jeans with a 44" waist. With Julie's help, I managed to get down to a 34" pair within a year. Admittedly, I did fall off the program and put some weight back on (36" currently), but after a recent refresher, I'm back on track and very committed to a healthier lifestyle.
