But like a lot of people, I was a little lackadaisical in getting started…and two surgeries slowed me down in 2003 (knee surgery in the summer and a complete hysterectomy in the fall). Talk about being lax! I always had a pretty flat stomach …even after a partial hysterectomy and childbirth. About eight months after the hysterectomy, I started carrying extra “padding” around my waist –something I never had before!
Each season, I was traipsing to the store to buy bigger pants. I went from a size 4 to size 8/10 in just a year and my exercise and eating habits did not change.
Finally, I had had enough! I got serious and started Tapping regularly. My arms have always been thin and I now have long lean muscles in my arms which I could never achieve with lifting weights at the gym. My knees do not hurt anymore and I have been able to lose the “padding” from my waistline. My hot flashes are controlled and I continue to reap all the health benefits of T-Tapp. I am maintaining now by doing only 2-3 workouts each week. I’m now wearing a size 6 but can also fit into some size 4’s.
Another challenge came in May, 2005 when I broke my ankle. I had a cast (bright pink, I might add) up to my knee. I was devastated because I could not do a full workout. However, I chose to be undaunted and poured myself into Teresa’s floor work. I lost over 9” while wearing my cast! T-Tapp has introduced many positive attributes to my life: more energy, better health, good posture, a flat stomach, a great mental attitude, improved sleep, increased strength and stronger muscles.
I’ve also been lucky enough to attend several fitness retreats, 3 of which were graced by Teresa’s presence. My form greatly improved after learning the important tips at these wonderful events. I’m really grateful for the improvements I’ve seen and have become a T-Tapp “evangelist” to those who want to increase their personal fitness and overall health.
This year (2006) I finally pursued my dreams and am proud to say I’m a T-Tapp trainer! It is such an honor to be able to pass on the health and psychological benefits T-Tapp brings to all of us. I have learned that even setbacks can be overcome with T-Tapp. Thank you, Teresa, for a wonderful program! I am forever indebted to you!
