Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 6th Week!

The Sixth Interview With Dr. Bunny – Before my Fourth Hypnotherapy Session ~

Cheetos_borderWe discuss how frustrated I am that progress is so slow after one month of dedicated effort on my part.

I remind myself that I am on a journey, so I need to enjoy it and not to just focus on the destination.

We discuss eating healthy salads and how Dr. Bunny makes her own salad dressing.  I joke with Dr. Bunny and mention that I eat salad just for the dressing.

She does not think it is funny.  She truly believes that eating healthy, whole foods is extremely important and wants me to understand that, so I can be successful.

Then, I confess that I eat 3 to 4 small bags of Cheetos per week from the vending machine at work, which are 310 calories per bag.

Dr. Bunny is appalled because Cheetos do not have any nutritional value whatsoever, and the calories equate to eating a small meal. I let her know that I account for those empty calories by not eating something else later, but Dr. Bunny still suggests that I need a healthy replacement for this crunchy, stress-relieving treat.

“Why Cheetos”, you ask, as my go to?  Because I am a stress eater, and I have told myself that the crunchiness and saltiness are comforting at those moments.

At work, I have gotten into this bad habit because something always happens to trigger this stress eating or at this point, it has just become habitual.

Dr. Bunny asks those who are listening to stay tuned to hear what healthy alternative replaces my addiction to Cheetos.

Here is the comparison between a vending machine sized bag of Cheetos, and a vending machine sized bag of Snyder’s Pretzels:

Here are the photos for calories of each:

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 5th Week!

dyanne-photo_5_featured

This Is The Fifth Interview With Dr. Bunny – Before my Third Hypnotherapy Session ~ 

dyanne-photo_5_borderWe discuss how I am transforming my mind. It is true that your thoughts are powerful and, when you think about something, you can change it.

I am happier now than I can ever remember.

I am eating very clean and almost no carbohydrates, religiously, with the exception of fruits and vegetables, since my body does not process sugar correctly.

I am making my own food and hardly eating out.

I always had a feeling of being overwhelmed and that is no longer the case. I have told the tennis players in my neighborhood that I will soon be joining them when the weather permits.

Dr. Bunny and I discuss past romantic relationships and how being fat always became an issue to men for me. (Here is a photo of me and one of my boyfriends from years ago.)

Dr. Bunny says that I have attracted this, and it has become my reality. Changing this mindset will affect my ability to transform myself on this journey to a healthy weight.

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 4th Week!

My 4th Week:  The Underlying Causes or Reasons

Dyanne_photo_show4_border

 

Dr. Bunny and I discuss how I was ‘skinny’ for a minute.

I share with Dr. Bunny that I feel negative about being skinny because in the past, I considered myself to be conceited when I loved how I looked and felt when I was ‘skinny.’

I am remembering and talking about a lot of old memories and history that I kept pretty buried.

Also, I was molested by two older men.  I told Dr. Bunny that I was molested by two older ‘gentlemen.’

She told me that they were NOT gentlemen and we had a discussion about how I held that in my memory.

Being fat made me invisible and not prey to these predators or my feelings of being vain, but it also made me depressed. I no longer love myself because of how my extra weight makes me look and feel or the damage that it has done to my health.

I eat very clean. A doctor had introduced me to a book that was called “Wheat Belly”, and I learned to stay away from genetically modified foods (GMOs).

I think that if I can just change my mind with Dr. Bunny as I have done with my diet that I can be successful on my journey to healthy weight.

I think things are starting to ‘shift’.

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 3rd Week!

Dyanne_photo_show3

Dyanne_photo3My Third Week – Continuing Commitment AND,
Noticing  That My Clothes Are Looser!

 Dr. Bunny and I discuss how my week went after my first hypnotherapy session. 
 I was much happier and focused on eating properly. 
 
I am also afraid to fail on my journey to a healthy weight because I have not had any kind of long term success in the past. 
 
I shared the health conditions that I have been diagnosed with such as sleep apnea, heart arrhythmia, which is an irregular heart beat, and insulin resistance. I currently use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine for sleeping because sleep apnea can be dangerous if untreated and may be the underlying cause of the arrhythmia.. 
 
I am told by the doctors constantly that the sleep apnea and high blood pressure can be reversed if I shed the extra weight, which is why I am so motivated. 
 
My clothes are looser after this first week, but Dr. Bunny mentioned not to fixate on the scale as weight fluctuates throughout the day for may reasons. She says to pay more attention to the way my clothes fit and how my body is changing. 
 
I am ready for my next hypnotherapy session, which immediately follows our interview.

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: My Journey To A Healthy Weight – My 2nd week!

dyanneshow2_featured_image2

My 2nd Week:  After One Session Of Hypnotherapy, I Certainly Am Committed.

Every night listen to Dr. Bunny’s  hypnotherapy CD, as instructed, for a half hour before bed time.

I feel dyanne_2_2borderhappy, but I am scared.   I posted my ‘before’ picture on social media and the responses were overwhelming.

I am afraid at this point. What if I fail?  I have never been able to lose weight.  “Dr. Bunny has advised me not say, ‘lose’. She said when the subconscious hears that word (lose), it wants to go find it, again.  Maybe that is why I haven’t been successful, I have the wrong approach.”

I did kick the sugar habit long ago, and now I don’t like how sugar makes me feel when I eat it. It makes me thirsty and gives me a weird feeling in my mouth.

I was diagnosed with insulin resistance. That is one of the major reasons that I have had this weight problem my entire life and used to crave sugar. Is that a problem for anyone else?

Most people get told, these days, that they are pre-diabetic from their blood work.

My numbers do not show that, but a more extensive blood test did prove that my body does not process sugar properly.

I eat pretty clean and stay away from obvious carbohydrates such as cookies, cakes, muffins, rice, and bread, but that has not been enough for me.

Am I alone in this battle?

Dyanne Van Der Kamp: Podcast No. 1 – The Beginning Of My Journey To A Healthy Weight

Dyanne_profile_pic

Dyanne_1_2_20_17_border2Hi, my name is Dyanne Van Der Kamp and I am first generation American born of Cuban parents, in California, in 1968.

I have achieved many accomplishments in my life such as graduating with a Master’s in Business Administration. I have had successful careers in banking, local government, federal government and, now, real estate.

I am passionate about life and sharing my knowledge and experience with others.

I am married to my soul mate, John, and I  share a beautiful home with John and our two canine kids for over 14 years.

Although I  have been blessed in all these successes, I  have struggled with my weight and do not feel healthy.

Now, I am honored to share my journey to my goal to a healthy weight and I invite you to join me in my journey.

Embarking On My Journey To A Healthy Weight 

In my first interview with Dr. Bunny Vreeland, we discussed my lifelong struggle with food and being at a healthy weight.

I explained that I have never been a yo-yo dieter, and only recall being on a diet, once, when I reached 199 lbs.

After learning to eat properly, I had reached 160 lbs within 3 months without exercise, by simply eating well balanced portions.

 Then, the Northridge earthquake struck and I lost my momentum and have never been at a healthy weight, since.

I lived in my family home very close to the epicenter. We slept in the car in the driveway for a couple days during the aftershocks because it was too scary to go in the house.

I feel that I have so many stories about my weight in my head that makes it nearly impossible for me to get rid of this problem, including the birth story that I shared. I was born 5 lbs 1/4 oz when I was born. My mother said that I didn’t want to eat and it scared her, how small I was.

She asked the pediatrician for assistance to fattening me up, and I believe she told me that he responded that she would regret it.

I have finally kicked the sugar habit that I had as a child and some of my adult life.  I eat healthier than I ever have, and I still haven’t been able to change my weight.  Join me on my journey with this new approach in meeting my goal of a healthy weight with Hypnotherapy.
