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"!!!
