Shock of split forces size 24 bride to slim
Dumped by fiance after he says you are too fat to marry me.
A bride to be has lost seven stones using hypnosis after she was dumped by her long term boyfriend for being too fat.
Pamela 31, from Tollcross, Glasgow was so devastated that she vowed (pardon the pun) to slim down from her 17 stones. She and her boyfriend had been together from the age of 17 when she was a size 14. He is a serving soldier, and when he was away on duty, call-centre worker Pamela would comfort eat on macaroni cheese and chips for lunch, snack on crisps and chocolate and then have curry for dinner followed by ice cream.
They had planned to get married this August at Airth Castle in Stirlingshire. They had already paid a £2000 deposit on the venue, the band and a piper but last March her boyfriend said he wanted to end the relationship.
Pamela was devastated but it was the spur she needed to finally do something about her weight.
Then she read about Helen Cameron from Waterfoot, near Glasgow who went from 20 stones to 10 stones thanks to hypnotherapy.
Pamela got in touch with a hypnotherapist who used a combination of hypnosis, psychology and gym training. The hypnotherapy treatment helped Pamela to dispel her negative beliefs that losing weight was not possible. Targeting her negativity with hypnosis proved to be the key to unlocking change in Pamela.
She has also been doing interval training, 30 minute sessions, five or six times a week.
Pamela is now a size 12. She has shown that with hypnotherapy and a change of mindset, hard work and determination, great things can be achieved.
