My Story by Jan
I have struggled with my weight all my life, never being able to eat what I wanted but had to watch calories and eat a lot of salad and vegetables. I know that many people can relate to this and have also felt the frustration and despair that comes with it. Buying clothes was difficult as larger sizes always were made of large flowered prints or horizontal stripes. One time I went to look for a dress for a wedding, a sales clerk came over and asked if she could help me. In my hand I was holding a dress that I had found and when she looked at it, she said “Oh my dear that dress in not for someone of your age, more of what an older woman would wear “. I felt crushed. In mid-2016 my weight had reached the highest it had ever been, my health was not good. I suffered from repeated respiratory issues and high blood pressure and was feeling very depressed. At one point I had really just given up. I had been a nurse for 27 years and new the dangers of high blood pressure and complications of diabetes. I had looked after people who had these chronic conditions and saw firsthand how they suffered with or succumbed to complications. I hated myself, lost my self-esteem and began to withdraw from things I enjoyed doing. I have known Sherry for many of years and one day I was venting about the struggle and my depressed state was now becoming more apparent, I could no longer hide my frustration. Sherry called me one day and told me she had a plan that could help, and would I be interested. For the first time I had a glimmer of hope and was excited that maybe this was what I needed. I had read many books on diabetes and diet plans of which none ever worked. We discussed what I had to do and went for my first hypnotherapy session. After the session I was so relaxed that I joked that I almost felt lighter already. That night I tried to remember the wording she had used as to try and recreate that very relaxed feeling. I was not able to remember any words, but my subconscious mind had listened well. I started my new journey to a better health. There were no shakes, pills or diets to follow. I was able to cook the same food for my husband and myself. After a few days I was feeling so much better, I had so much energy that I could get through everything I had to do in the day and still I could do more. The other thing that I believed that helped was not having to look at the scale or count how many pounds I had lost. I saw it in how my clothes first and how many compliments I received. I have maintained my new eating habits since August 1st ,2017 to this date, February 8th2019. I have better mobility, can paint my toe-nails and shop for clothes without frustration. My blood sugars are better and my blood pressure under control. Mindband has given me the freedom to be me again and enjoy life again. Thank you, Sherry, for this new alternative lifestyle. I look forward to continued good health and a much better future.
Hi Meet Jan,
A special thanks to Jan for agreeing to share her journey with everyone.
Jan has struggled with weight her whole life and as time passed developed diabetes type 2. It got so bad even with trying many different diets and exercise and a combination of both nothing was working. Her blood sugar levels hit over 27 at times and she had no idea what was causing it or how to control it. On 3 different types of medication and still gaining weight she felt frustrated and didn’t see any options. Jan is a Nurse and though all of this struggle she was defeated last January and February she felt like giving up and the medication just seems to be making her feel worse. Emotionally she was emotionally drained with no energy and brain fog. Her doctor mentioned Lapband, but Jan had looked after clients who had that surgery, saw the complications, knew the diet before and after and she knew that the research didn’t hold well, up as long-term help. She really did not want to go that route.
Aug 1 2017, she decided to try MINDBAND.
MINDBAND is something like Lap Band only it is done using hypnosis by a hypnotherapist (Sherry) and with a few easy, small adjustments in her food choices, the results are amazing. MINDBAND has made this easy thanks to the Hypnotherapy.
So join us on Jan’s Journey and learn how she became so successful and how quickly the results are.
This is Jan’s journey to a healthy and happy life. Please view the video interview with Jan done exactly 4 weeks after she started and her amazing testimony.

Jan’s Journey continues.
My Experience with the Mindband program,
I am now into the 10th month of my journey with the Mindband program. When I started I wanted to have modest expectations not because I was unsure if the program would work but my track record for diets would only get a failing grade. Every time I went into a diet and exercise program I always wanted great results but somehow either the diet was too difficult to maintain and exercise was always a poor fit in where I had a small block of time. After the first session of hypnotherapy I felt great! Although, I could not remember the words which made me so relaxed and energized, my brain said I feel lighter already, which was the comment I made to Sherry at the end of the session. This program has gone beyond my expectations and continues to give me the energy to lose weight and feel much better. My goal was not to look at how many pounds I lost but rather the changes that I was seeing and feeling. More energy and my clothes getting too big. It also made me realize something about myself that with the help of this program, the energy I now have, that I could achieve the best results without a lot of changes to our lifestyle. I did not have to purchase special shakes or foods, no membership fees to pay to lose weight. I would recommend this program to anyone who is serious about losing weight and feeling better. the benefits are amazing. It has boosted my confidence and my self-esteem by looking and feeling better about myself.
Jan one year later 2018
Jan used to exercise but felt no improvement and it was a struggle, she now exercises easily doing a 35 minute work out tape daily and 3x a week the treadmill, which she has lots of energy for now and feels great doing it. She exercises at her level and choice.
