Vicky's Hypnotic Gastric Band Journal
Need some way of keeping focused on this and to see how it's working.

The first thing I had to do with Paul McKenna's new program was read the whole book all the way through. There are a couple of different things in the book from the I Can Make You Thin program, but you still need to follow the 4 Golden Rules
Eat when you're hungry
Eat what you want
Enjoy every mouthful
Stop when you are full

The new NLP recording guides you through the procedure, and from what I can gather, unlike ICMYT, you don't need to listen everyday to the recording. But you can listen as well as often as you like. So I plan on every day for the first week. Then maybe drop back.

There's also a DVD that explains 'havening', this is a technique that supposedly stimulates seratonin, something that people who over eat crave - eating turns it on?

I listened this morning - and then applied the 4 Golden Rules and ate my lunch. I did feel full faster - left some lunch, but did get hungry later - had a little something - not enough to feel full.

We're off out for Thai tonight, will be interesting to see what happens there!

So, just back from my meal out. Very interesting ....

Ate 3 tiny spring rolls, a chicken satay stick, a tablespoon of coconut rice and a little soup and I was stuffed!

Normally (in non-diet mode!) would have put away the spring rolls, a couple of satay sticks, the bowl of soup, and main course and rice -a lot more to drink and we went somewhere for coffee after and I would have had a larger coffee and a dessert! Probably already feeling stuffed during the main course!

Am quite excited!

I love the sound of this. It should be doable anywhere and everywhere.

I am you cheerleader.

Could be good! Keeping everything crossed xxx

Just had my leftover soup from last night's Thai, for brekkie. Feeling quite full.

See how the rest of the day pans out!

Been away for a few days - and now know that I will need to listen on a more regular basis.

Oh well, that's not too difficult to do.

Okay - went off track for a few weeks - have listened 2 x since last night - so let's see where this takes me ...

So far so good ...

Ate way less today then I have in ages.

For dinner I managed half a small pork chop, a few green beans and broccoli, three small roast potatoes (not even half a small full potato) and a bit of cheese sauce - and I feel stuffed, unpleasantly so.

Will be listening again tonight - we're off for a few days and I want to stay on the program.
