Hello, I'm Jeanine Crosby. Ten months ago, I was a completely different person. I was unhappy with the way I looked. My eating habits were out of control and I was eating for all of the wrong reasons. I was eating when I wasn't even hungry. My portion sizes were extra large and I had a love for fast food and fried food. I also didnt exercise regularly. My emotions were in control of when I ate and what I put into my body. I was 89 pounds heavier and a snug size 20. I used to take comfort in food. In reality, it wasn't very comforting when my clothes would not fit or when I stepped on that dreadful scale. Then I would get depressed and turn to food. It was a vicious cycle. My self esteem and confidence level were invisible.

One day on my way into work, I saw a Positive Changes billboard. I had seen the ads on TV and in the newspaper, but the billboard really caught my eye. The words Positive Changes looked as big as life to me that day, and I knew that I had to call to set up an appointment. I had an abundance of negative experiences in my life and I was ready to move forward with my life and turn those negatives into positives.
I have four sisters and four brothers and I was so tired of being the heaviest. Being the oldest daughter with six younger siblings, I learned at a very young age to take care of everyone else but myself. Now was the time to take care of Jeanine. I realized I had to do this for me and not for any other reason. I needed to change the way I thought about food and I desperately wanted to be a more positive, fulfilled person.

When I went in for my evaluation, I wasn't sure what to expect. The only thing I knew about hypnosis was from watching TV. Most often, television shows portrayed hypnosis as being strange and unknown, making people bark or do something else ridiculous. I was happy to find that Positive Changes wasn't anything like that at all. Their program keeps you focused on your goal of losing weight, and you achieve this goal by being put into a relaxed state of mind. They gave me CDs to listen to that would reinforce my goals. I have learned the mind is a powerful thing and Positive Changes gave me the right mindset to have power and control over food.

Now that I have gone to Positive Changes, I feel like I am twenty years younger. If only I would have known then what I know now, I would have done this a long time ago I have more energy and stamina than I have ever known before, and I have a fresh, positive attitude about myself and my life. Words cannot begin to express how incredible that feels. I am now a slim looking size 6 and 89 pounds lighter since when I began 10 months ago. I wake up in the morning charged and ready to exercise, and I exercise daily. I eat fresh foods and I havent had fast food or fried food in months. For the first time in my life, I have fun trying on clothes and that once dreadful scale doesn't worry me anymore. Now I think and feel like a naturally thin and healthy person. It is unbelievable and surreal in so many ways. Thanks to Positive Changes Hypnosis Center, I have learned to love myself unconditionally and to forgive myself for letting myself get so big. I have found a free spirit in myself and she is here for keeps. This program is truly Priceless
