Read an Excerpt

Chapter one
Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis for Weight Loss: Rewiring Your Brain

Most weight-loss strategies involve dieting, in which your will is directed toward staying away from certain foods for a certain amount of time, but not about eliminating unhealthy urges altogether.

Using this CD, your will is directed toward addressing your most internal thoughts, urges, and finally, that area of your brain that generates the unhealthy cravings. With this approach you will be replacing the cravings with healthier thoughts and images and as a result will change your brain.
Your new brain circuitry will support and sometimes even initiate new urges fundamental to your new lifestyle. As you repeatedly listen to the CD and internalize the messages and make them your own, the guidance then is not from my voice, but rather deep in your own mind and the heart of direct experience.

The messages are also designed as a means of turning toward oneself with care and well-being. If you are an overweight person, this kind of care and nurturing from yourself is a rare experience. The negative messages that you repeatedly give yourself block the much-needed inner-directed care. Messages of fear, doubt, shame, and judgment are replaced with images of confidence and psychological strength.

    If you open this book expecting to be disappointed, then you pro

    If you open this book expecting to be disappointed, then you probably will be. It's not written for those who are looking for yet another excuse for why they can't lose weight. It's written for those who open the pages and plug in the CD determined to make a difference in their lives, to listen to the author speak (regardless of the fact that people complained about her voice in other reviews) with an honest determination to hear what she is saying. It's written for the optimist, the person tired of the up and down battles with weight loss, who has finally realized that in order to change their body they will have to first change their brain.

    I am one of those people. I've been through all of the ups and downs. I've lost tons of weight with other programs in the past, and gained it all back and more. I was then faced with a very serious health problem, and a large part of what was keeping me from getting well was the extra 35-40 pounds I gained, on an already overweight frame, due to prednisone.

    I've now been working with the Think Yourself Thin program for nearly a year. Dr Beuhler's voice is not really that nasal or annoying at all; in fact, if listened to with a hopeful and positive outlook, I find it comforting. Perhaps I find that comfort because because I entered this "relationship" with the hope that she could help me, having read the text through once before plugging in the audio files; I had seen how much plain basic common sense it all made. As stated, I've been on the program for almost a year.

    I have lost a total, of 76 pounds. Yes, Seventy Six. And with the continued encouragement of Dr Beuhler's recordings, I truly believe that, this time, I can keep it off. For the first time in my life (and I am going on 56 years old, so have been at this for a while) I feel like I have control over my weight, my health, my future. Thank you, Darcy Beuhler and "Think Yourself Thin".

    I had hoped this book would be better. Unfortunately the book lacks inspiration and the author's voice on the CD's is painfully hard to listen to. I couldn't relax listening to her. It's too bad because the basic premise of the book is excellent and she makes some good points. Thanks to some other excellent books on the subject, I've been able to change my life. By accessing the subconscious, my weight loss struggle finally went beyond dieting, which was the key for me. Just consider what drives your eating habits, that's the place to start. Most people are so focused on working from the outside in, rather than the inside out, they are never able to build a real foundation for permanent lifestyle change. I'm over the 'lose weight fast' diets and bogus pills, I'm getting thinner and healthier by changing the way I think about myself and food.
