Hypnotized

Mommy is going to be hypnotized on Saturday!

She has been very discouraged about her weight-gain and even discovered she has been sleep-eating (and 'sleep giving the cats treats' too, but don't tell her). She has heard really wonderful things about how hypnotizing can really help focus you on your goal and the success rates are great for weight-loss. She is very excited about this!

Our friend Jenn is a certified hypnotist, and since Samson and I are very close with Jenn, we have some special instructions for her while she has Mommy in a trance. We know that Jenn usually reads our blog, so we'll just ask her to very discreetly suggest to Mommy that she needs to give us more treats! We would be happy if she completely replaced our food with treats, but 50% more will do just fine. If she is going to stop sleep-eating, she will likely also stop giving us midnight snacks too, so we need to compensate. We realize this may cost more, but don't worry, we're getting our allowance tomorrow and money is no object!

Thanks a bunch, Jenn. Give Mischa and Pasha some headbutts and rubs from us.

Mommy, you're getting very sleepy!

I hope that the hypnosis really works for your Mom. I have heard of sleep-eating, but I have never met someone who did it before. You are very sneaky, Delilah.

Good luck to your Mom. Our Mom did hypnosis because she didn't like to fly in an airplane. It worked very well for her! We never heard of sleep eating.

Delilah, you WILL let us know if this works, right? Because we have had a serious cut-back on our treats and would like to remedy that situation!

That is very sneaky of you guys, giving your friend secret messages will you mom is getting VVEEERRRRYYYYYYYYY sleepy. Kudos! Hope it works for her...our mom would like to do that to stop smoking! We keep asking her, but she says we don't really understand stress all that much! Why would we??? They work for us!

Hip-No-Sis: well, she won't be able to do anything she doesn't really WANT to do, so hopefully she really WANTS to give you extra treats even though she won't be having extra treats herself.
But remember, don't be whiney if'n you don't get them -- it's your job to support your human at this time!

Our aunt got hypnotized to stop smoking once and she lost 10 pounds instead! She did eventually quit smoking, but not through hypnosis. We hope it works better than that for your mom. (We actually think it's a really great idea, and well worth a try.)

Sam and Andy said...

We do hope that it works for your Mommy and that she will be so happy to be cured that she will still get up and give you treats during the night.....:)

Great snap of you, Delilah

love, purrrrs and hugs

We hope that the hypnosis will work well for your mommy. Nanny's mother has the same problem, getting up and eating food in the middle of the night.

Big hugs,

Loki

Good luck to your Mom bean. You can sure show her how to get sleepy..

Our Mom tried hypnosis for weight loss. BUt it cost many many green papers so she had to take the short class and it did not work for her. She wishes you luck.

The Creek Cats said...

Oh wow, that sure does sound exciting!! Sure hope it works!

BeadedTail said...

Good luck to your mom and we hope it works! You'll have to let us know if it does and also if you still get sleep treats. Angel has learned how to wake mommy up just enough in the middle of the night that she'll give us treats. We love our sleep treats!

We've got our paws crossed for your mom and hope the hypnosis works for her! We've never heard of sleep eating either but Momma sometimes does 'sleep-working' after a long night! *giggle*

Oh wow.
I used to sleep eat, as well. I never thought about hypnosis. I hope that it works well for your mommy!

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope the hypnosis works and you get extra treats.

The Kitty Krew said...

Ooooh, we've heard of sleep-eating but never really heard of anyone that *reallllly* did it. We hope it works for your mom but that she still gives y'all lots of treats! :D

Our Mommy doesn't think hypnosis would work for her...she's too much a control freak. LOL

Cute picture of you, Deli!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

PS Mom was just thinking about doing this herself (for the same reason) and can't wait to hear how it goes for her.
