What's in Your Mind? Your questions
At the Back of My Mind - Next month's newsletter


A few years ago, I lost 20 pounds... and never gained them back! My first step was to identify my own weight gain causes and to look at how my mind was getting in the way of my weight. In this newsletter, I am sharing with you this first step.
You will also find a way to use hypnosis to cram for exams - painlessly.
And if, since my last newsletter, you have been wondering how I find my new life as my own boss, I just love it, especially the flexibility of setting my own schedule!
As always,, don't hesitate to drop me a line about this newsletter or the previous ones. Back issues can be found here.

Way of the Mind's Article: Weight Gain Causes - Discovery Questionnaire
Identifying weight gain causes often puts an overweight problem into perspective and helps find a solution. The following questionnaire is meant to help you determine possible weight gain causes, among 20 different possibilities.
First, try to remember what was happening in your life when you started being overweight. Then ask yourself the following questions.
1. Are you fighting an addiction, such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, etc.?
2. During your childhood, were you strongly influenced by a parent or authority figure who was overweight?
3. Have you ever been given food as a reward or asked to eat to prove you are a good person? (e.g., "If you eat up all your food, you'll have a nice dessert, a trip to Disneyland, etc.")
4. Are you turning to food when you are angry, lonely, tired, or in need of love and comfort?
5. Do you tend to eat when you are stressed or anxious?
6. Have you ever been sexually abused, either as a child or in your adult life, or do you suspect it may have happened without having conscious memories of it?
Read the rest of this questionnaire here.

Mind Boggling
If you are going to call sick, make sure your boss believes you! More American workers (18%) call sick on Friday than any other day of the week. Tuesday has the lowest percent of absenteeism (11%).

Mind Games
Three friends were playing poker.
Each player had a certain amount of money, in addition to which there was a pool of money in the centre of the table.
Adam said: "If I win this pool, I will have twice as much money as both of you put together."
Brenda said: "If I win this pool, I will have three times as much money as both of you put together."
Michael said: "If I win this pool, I will have five times as much money as both of you put together."
How much money was in the pool and how much money did each player have?

You will find the solution in the next issue of "With You in Mind" but you still have one month to think about it!

Solution of last newsletter's Mind Game:
The second pass will occur at the half-mile mark. With the speed remaining constant the first passing point can be considered as a new starting point.
Nick D. had found the solution just a few minutes after receiving the newsletter. Bravo, Nick!
