Hello, my name is Laurie Gregg, creator of Thimage Weight Loss and Body Sculpting.
I was raised in a small town with traditional beliefs about women. I believed I was supposed to be sweet, a good listener and pretty, which included being slim. I had wonderful friends, a loving family, made good grades and participated in fun, extracurricular activities. In college, I modeled professionally. Everything looked pretty good, right?
But I had a secret. I ate. I ate and I gained weight. I ate and I fasted. I fasted and I felt sick. I ate and I felt bad. I engaged in bulimic behaviors and felt even worse. On top of everything, this wrecked havoc on my diabetes. My life looked good, but the truth was, I always felt bad. I looked at food or looked in the mirror and I felt awful. I could not even watch a restaurant commercial without feeling the struggle.
I moved to Manhattan to pursue modeling. Now the pressure was really on. There was no escape. I wouldn't be paying my rent if I didn't keep myself at the perfect size. My real work became watching the scale, not modeling.
I was always working to "fix" my body. You know the drill - diet centers, fad diets, diet pills, trading diet trends with friends. And you all know the results.
I added movie production to my work. While doing research for a documentary, I was introduced to hypnotherapy and began to understand its impact -- the power of our inner thoughts over our lives. Combining this with medical and psychological research helped me to redirect my ideas towards my old nemesis, weight loss.
They say "good things come in threes". In 2000, I welcomed the birth of my son, the birth of my psychic abilities and the birth of Thimage Weight Loss and Body Sculpting.
So many have bodies they are ashamed of and feel they can do nothing about -- and the sad, stressed-out faces to go with them.
I am here to empower you, as I have done for myself, and help you feel at peace so you are able to create your dream body the easiest, most permanent way -- With Your Mind!
