Long Island Man Loses 61 Pounds

June 14th, 2010

Corey Milman, age 59, a Sales Representative from East Meadow NY, less than two years ago (Dec. 2008) weighed 238 pounds. And today (June 2010) weighs 61 pounds less.

His story: Six months ago, Corey Milman had high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and was very overweight. Today, that picture has changed radically. “I now do not snore; my sleep apnea is gone; my medications are being reduced under medical supervision,” says Milman.

How did he manage to make such a change? “I went for hypnosis,” says Milman. “I had five sessions. My therapist listened to what my issues were – my issue was that I ate too much.”

As Milman is quick to point out, his weight-loss is an ongoing project. “I continue to reinforce myself since all of my sessions were recorded.” But his new way of eating represents more than a change of diet. “This is a change of lifestyle,” Milman says. “Now, I eat to live instead of living to eat.”

His diet: “I don’t count calories. I eat sensibly,” says Milman. “No bagels and no desserts. These things were put into my therapy, and I have no desire for them. But I eat pretty much anything I want to eat. I don’t eat between meals – I don’t get hungry. And I wind up getting fuller faster because I eat much more slowly than I used to. And I don’t eat anywhere near as much as I used to.”

His exercise: “I am on the aerobic treadmill three times a week, doing at least two miles each time.”

His advice: “There’s something out there that will help you lose weight,” says Milman. “What worked for me might not work for someone else; you just have to find what works for you. But the key is to stop thinking about going on a diet and think about a lifestyle change.”
