So here I was Aug. 20th measuring myself for no reason because I was sure this was a waste of time. I watched both of the instructional tapes laughing. Now I was sure I got ripped off. This looked so easy that I was sure that a toddler could do it. I was right about one thing; a toddler can do it a lot easier than I could. Toddlers still have their balance muscles. I couldn't do it but managed to keep it up for the whole 2 weeks with my ability to do it improving. I didn't weigh or measure during this 2 week period but after about a week I knew my clothes were too loose, I just couldn't bring myself to say it. By the end of the two weeks I was down to a tight size 10. The scales still said about the same weight wise and I was hung up on the pound issue so I called the T-Tapp office and went on the T-Tapp Forum. I found out about Teresa's Man Made/God Made way of eating. The plan is simple where you eat only God Made food for a number of days and then you have one day where you eat Man Made Foods. I tried it and started really losing weight along with my inches. This was an eating plan that I could live with.
By the time they had a clinic in Chicago in October I was down to 136lbs and a size 8 or a tight 6 if I didn't want to take any deep breaths. I had really slowed down as far as inch loss and weight loss. I again called the office and found out I really should go to the clinic to have my form corrected if needed. I might not be doing everything exactly right and thus hit a plateau.
I attended the clinic in October and got some ideas for better form and started losing again. By the end of November I was a size 6 or a tight 4 and 126 lbs.
Again in late December I hit another wall and stopped losing. I was 122 lbs and a size 4. That is when I met the Illinois T-Tapp Trainer in training, Katarina. I started going to workouts with her and a bunch of other women once a month. She watched everything we did and correct my form constantly. It did so much to correct my form that I was a size 1-2 and 108lbs when Teresa came to do a weekend retreat and certify Katarina as a trainer in February. By the beginning of March I was a size 0 and 100-102lbs. I did the CRT program from the very beginning and have absolutely no loose skin.
In high school I was 98-100 lbs but a size 5. So the workout really does change your shape and you weigh more at a smaller size.
I do the workout about every other day but sometimes only 2 times a week. I take the workout with me on my trips and workout in my hotel room.
