    That is so sad! When are people going to wake up and realize that this is an internal thing? This is all about how one sees and feels about themselves. Using brainwave entrainment in an alpha or theta state and incorporating it with powerful visualizations is what works. The mind must be working in harmony. The conscious mind has the will but, the subconscious holds the power. It is 88% of our mind. If theses two are not in harmony there is no WILLPOWER. A person can have the best intentions when losing weight but, if they were programmed as a child, such as not feeling loved or if they were neglected, abused, teased etc, the victim will turn this on themselves and continue the abuse of the tormentor for the rest of their lives. Whether if that person is physically there or not. If they can not get past that image they hold of themselves in their mind, they will continue to sabotage themselves. They are in an essence carrying out that person’s “work” for them. It is VERY IMPORTANT for people who are modifying their self image to surround themselves with positive, uplifting people who are supportive and nonjudgmental. You must remove the naysayers first no matter how painful this may be. Remember this. If you have negative people around you who continually try and drag you down, you are NO DIFFERENT WHATSOEVER than the abused housewife who keeps running back to her abusive husband. You are NO DIFFERENT AT ALL! Because it is much more comfortable for her to run back to her husband than it is to go out and explore other options. It’s safe, well at least in her own mind and it’s familiar. Just like a person being overweight and surrounding themselves with people who keep them fat. Including themselves!
