Overview

Do you want to take control of your weight and get the body you always dreamed of? You can-and this book will show you how.
In this groundbreaking book, the United Kingdom's premier hypnotherapy practitioner presents a unique program for weight-loss that requires very little effort and yields amazing results. How? You think yourself thin.

For years Ursula James counseled people who wanted to lose weight but who found that no diet ever worked for them. What gradually became apparent to her is that most of them already knew what they should be doing to lose weight-they just couldn't quite get themselves to do it. It was a problem of the mind and one that could easily be solved by using targeted hypnosis methods. In this book and CD package, James shares with readers for the first time the clear and simple techniques she uses with her patients-and with amazing results. With this program, readers learn how to take themselves deep into their subconscious minds and change the thought patterns that allow them to discard negative habits and create new, more healthful ones-and all without having to suffer through grueling exercise or food deprivations.

Read this book and let Ursula James help you think yourself into the body you've always desired, and the confidence you deserve.

    An amazing weight loss book that has changed my life!

    I have tried many weight loss books before but this was the only one that helped me keep the weight off! I'm feeling so much more positive about myself since reading this book. It has changed my life and I can finally be the person who I have always wanted to be! This is not like all the others out there, this one can actually change your life. Try it now if you are serious about weight loss!

    "You can think yourself thin" really works!

    I wanted to read this book because I have always struggled with my weight since having my two children. Although more traditional diets have worked for me in the short term I never seem to be able to maintain the weight loss so I was fast reaching the conclusion that I needed to work on my mind as well as my body. Ursula James' book 'You Can Think Yourself Thin' came along at just the right time for me and I have been absolutely astounded by the effects of reading this book and listening to the hypnosis tracks. I had never tried anything like this before and was even a little skeptical but not any more!

    The book is broken up in to nine chapters which help you think about all the different stages of your life, starting with the past then moving into the present before addressing the future. All of these stages are accompanied by different tracks on a CD and you are told when to listen to these. There are a number of tasks which she asks you to do such as clearing out your wardrobe and dedicating at least an hour a week entirely for yourself all of which are helping you to create a positive self image.

    The hypnotherapy tracks are amazing especially if you have not tried anything like this before. I was very impressed at how easily and seamlessly I was taken into a 'deep focused state' You don't always remember what has been said but the idea is that after you have listened your subconscious will work on the suggestions made while you are sleeping. After I got used to them I found that I really enjoyed these sessions and there were quite a few of them because although you only listen to the past and present tracks once, you are required to listen to the future track twenty one times. This is because apparently it takes three weeks to either make or break a habit. Also, the CD is always there for any future use particularly if you feel you are starting to fall into your former bad habits. I'm hoping I won't need to use it too often.

    The effects that this book and the CD have had on me have been wonderful. I have been reading and listening for the last month and I really feel like I am a changed person and I have also lost ten pounds in weight without even trying. I no longer snack between meals and I am no longer finishing off all my young daughters' leftovers which was possibly my worst failing. It's not even as though my willpower has improved - it's just that I don't want to do these things any more. I seem to have lost my taste for sweet and sickly things, I have slowed down my eating and therefore improved my metabolism and I'm drinking much more water.
    Also my motivation for exercise has increased dramatically and I am no longer finding excuses for avoiding it. In fact now I'm actively looking for opportunities to exercise. I feel healthy and I also feel confident and I'm much more able to take difficult situations in my stride. Of course, the proof will be in how I feel three months for now but I do feel more positive that I will continue to lose weight and then maintain it.

    I cannot praise this book enough and I really do feel that through reading it and following the instructions that it has changed me. I've also talked about it with so many friends who have all asked to borrow it but I'm afraid I told them to go out and get their own copies. This one's mine and I'm keeping it just in case I need a dose of positive thinking again!

    Completely agree- Best weight loss book around!

    I completely agree with you Cathy, this book helped me take control of my life again. I have tried so many diets which only made me feel useless when I couldn't follow their strict regimes. The self hypnosis CD really helped me relax and use the book effectively. It's the only method that has worked for me in my life! I highly recommend it!

    Ok

    I order the book it was pretty good but there was a CD in the back of the book and when you tried to take it out it was stuck and the paper stuck to it so the CD which was to be used along with the book was of no use to me. I was not pleased about that.
