She has stuck to her plan. Just five pounds to release and she is meet her goal. It has not always been easy, but with the support of hypnosis and Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), she has managed through the rough times feeling more confident and more energetic than ever before.

She stops listening the CDs. She stops tapping. Her old eating habits of dealing with hurt and problems with food creep back. Needless to say, her weight loss stops and she starts gaining weight.

What would cause someone so close to her goal to stop?
Why would she give up on herself?
How could she revert to her old ways?

There are many answers to these questions. Each person’s circumstances are different. There is one looming situation that sabotages us in any change we make to ourselves and threatens our success.

Comfort Zones.

We feel comfortable handling situations with the old coping mechanism. Developed when we where very young, these coping systems comfort us during tough times. What a brilliant child you were! Your brain was not fully matured, yet you developed processes to comfort yourself. Unfortunately, the same survival methods are no longer serving you.

You can rewire your brain to react differently to situations without reverting to the overeating, withdrawing or reacting.

Try this to rewire your brain:

Notice where your thoughts lead you when you sense the self sabotage.

Notice your feelings and where your mind is taking you.

Change the thoughts to “I deserve to take care of myself.” “I choose to react differently.”

Get reinforcement by listening to a hypnosis CDs that supports your goal and start tapping again.

You can change the destructive learned coping response. It is never too late to rewire your brain and succeed at your goal.
