I lost 14lbs with the Gastric Mind Band
Ruth Gerull is English, 54 years old, has two children (9 and 12), two cats, one dog and one husband and lives in Germany. Read how she went on to Lose 14lbs Gastric Mind Band Treatment.
Looking back, I’ve had a bad relationship with food for a very long time. My first memory of bad feelings about eating came after I left school at 16 and went to college. I used to buy a big bag of loose sweets on the way home and by the time I got home, I’d eaten the lot. Of course I then ate the meal my Mum had prepared. Then I’d feel bloated, wished I hadn’t eaten the meal and hated myself.
By the time I got to 19, I was well over a stone overweight and went to Weight Watchers. Although the diet went well and I got to my target, keeping it off was another matter. I kept on putting on weight and then losing it. I suppose I became the proverbial yo-yo dieter. I was completely out of control when it came to food. I think I must have been on every diet that there was, I tried slimming tablets I bought from a private doctor until I discovered they were ‘speed’ based.

I think the worst thing about everything was my feeling of being out-of-control and feeling like a fat blob. I just couldn’t pull myself together. So this yo-yo dieting and feeling bad about myself just carried on and on and my self-esteem was very low. I got married just before my 40th birthday and moved to Germany. My weight slowly crept up and after having my two children, yet again I was a size 14/16 and felt miserable. I hated looking at myself in the mirror. I hated shopping for clothes. I hated going to the supermarket and my relationship with food got even worse than ever. I even blamed my husband for not stopping me from eating chocolate. The more miserable I felt the more I ate, normally in secret. Read more about Lose 14lbs Gastric Mind Band Treatment.

During a visit back to the UK in the summer of 2009, I was reading the Daily Mail and read the article about the Gastric Mind Band something like Lose 14lbs Gastric Mind Band Treatment. I was very interested in what I read. I never thought it would be possible to Lose 14lbs with the Gastric Mind Band Treatment. When I got back to Germany, I read the web site over and over again and got very excited about it, because it seemed that I had found people who knew exactly how I felt about myself. I made a phone call and had a chat with Martin and made the decision to go ahead and fly over to Spain.
I flew over in December 2009 staying at the Hostel Marbella, very nice, clean, with bathroom on suite and only 30 euros a night an added bonus was that it was virtually next door to the clinic. My first appointment was with Marion. We spent hours talking and I had my first hypnotherapy session, which I loved. When I got back to the hotel that evening, I ate much less than I normally would have and didn’t even bother to have a dessert, although there were so many to choose from. I felt full up and just didn’t fancy any dessert. To this day I am not sure what happened in that first session with Marion, but something changed in me, and since that first session I have continued to fell very happy and in control. My Lose 14lbs Gastric Mind Band Treatment.
During my other appointments I learned more about calories, portion control, exercise, Gastric Band operations and much more, and had more hypnotherapy sessions each one seemed to be taking me deeper. One of the most helpful things for me was learning that it isn’t a bad thing to feel hungry and I realised that I hadn’t felt actual hunger for years. I also learned that I ate (or should I say “stuffed my face”) when I was stressed or upset. eat everything in moderation to maintain a healthy weight.
Before I went to the clinic in Spain, I thought that I was a healthy eater. But it had never occurred to me that I could still eat too much healthy food and put on weight. Guessing the calories of an apple in one session with Marion was an eye-opener for me. I guessed it was around 40 calories, but it was 90 calories! I enjoyed all the sessions with Marion and Martin and left the clinic feeling very positive. I found them very professional and even friendlier than I had hoped. I must also add that I was pleasantly surprised with the very comprehensive pack of ‘tools’ that I was given to take home with me, especially the manual, covering the four days of treatment and the set of CD’s along with too many other things to list here. So, I had Christmas ahead of me, which used to be a complete nightmare. However, Christmas 2009 was completely different. Not only did I eat completely differently and enjoy my food, the weight was falling off me. Week by week I continued to lose weight, seemingly without any effort from me, until I got to the weight I was happy with. I just cannot believe how easy it was to Lose 14lbs Gastric Mind Band Treatment.
Weight Loss Hypnosis & The Gastric Mind Band Treatment
Eating when I’m not hungry was a habit I’d got into and sometimes now, I still get the urge to eat when I’m not hungry. Instead of just stuffing myself, which is what I used to do, it’s like there’s a little voice in my head that asks me why on earth would I want to do that – do I really want to go back to the way I used to feel (and look) or do I want to carry on feeling good about myself and staying slim? I don’t want to eat Nutella by the spoonful or 6 slices of toast with butter and jam anymore, or eat the children’s leftovers. Almost a year later, I’m still a size 12 and happier than I’ve been in a very long time. I’m in control of my eating and have a much better relationship with food – I even enjoy cooking much more.
I have just returned to Spain to have my final session, I am not sure I will ever have to return, I am in control of my eating, maybe for the first tome in my adult life. It’s not just me that’s a happier person, my husband and children have noticed it and so have my family in the UK. I’m just so glad I made the decision to go ahead with the Gastric Mind Band as it’s changed my life for the better. I would be happy to recommend the treatment to anybody, in fact I always do, I think my friends are bored of me constantly talking about it, even now.
