“I wake up pain-free and full of energy!”
“I’m going to stay in the lodge. I think I hurt my ankle,” fibbed Suzi Conklin Nance to her family while on vacation years ago. Though she’d always loved skiing, the fear of falling at her then-weight kept her indoors. This isn’t the kind of mom I imagined I’d be…
Suzi was a self-described sugarholic, who hid candy even in her car’s glove compartment. “It was ridiculous. My whole life,
I was either on a diet or beating myself up for not being on a diet,” she reveals. “Thoughts of food were always there, like an unwanted guest I had to accommodate.”
Tired of not getting help from doctors, Suzi began researching naturalhealing approaches. “Hypnosis kept coming up,” she recalls, and though skeptical, Suzi educated herself and performed “self-hypnosis” with the message: “I love exercise.” She explains, “Trust me, I had never gotten even one tiny bleep of an endorphin from exercise. Well, lo and behold, I started doing six exercise classes a week and loving it.” Even more surprising: She quickly shed 30 stubborn pounds! “It wasn’t like going on a diet,” says Suzi. “Hypnosis unraveled my unhealthy core beliefs so I could make the right choices.”
Now down 101 pounds and free of chronic pain,
Suzi has become a hypnotherapist serving veterans.
“I found my passion helping people change behaviors they’ve struggled with for decades. I love waking up with energy. The other day I got on a teeter-totter with my grandkids!”
