Essay:  My journey with T-Tapp started many years ago, in 2011. My sister introduced me to the method and I would wake up early, like 5:30 am, just so I could T-Tapp. It was wonderful. I have been doing T-Tapp mostly on and rarely off since then. In the summer of 2014 I lost 30 pounds by getting in tune with my body and looking to God instead of food for comfort and support. During that three month transformation I consistently did T-Tapp three of four times a week, and I am sure it helped accelerate my results, going from a size 14 to a size 8. My husband was inspired by my success and lost more than 40 pounds. Then he started running marathons and competing in triathlons. Last summer we both finished a triathlon together, which had been on my bucket-list. The problem began when I started putting pressure on myself to start training more like my husband. I also was watching the scale way too much and letting that mind game drive me crazy. I decided to do the T-Tapp challenge as way to get off that roller-coaster. I was going to let go for 60 days and just do the workout that I love and makes me feel great! I also haven’t weighed myself, which has been very liberating.

Another reason why I wanted to do the challenge is because of a health issue with what I believe to be clogged lymph. During the challenge I have seen a definite correlation between the size of the obstruction and doing T-Tapp. It has gotten smaller and has changed in density.

I wish that I had great inch loss to share this year, but I am in the less to lose category. In fact, when I looked at my before pictures I thought, “Why am I trying to change anything?” But that wasn’t my real purpose in doing the challenge. I needed to get back in touch with what I needed to do for my own body, rather than comparing myself to other people. Though it may not be reflected in my measurements, I feel tighter in my midsection, and the sides of my abs are definitely more developed after going through the challenge.

I love doing T-Tapp, I can feel it working and I feel great physically after I do it, and mentally because I know that I have done something great for me that has more beneficial effects than many other forms of exercise. I also like knowing that I am not going to get injured doing it, in fact it will only improve my performance jogging, swimming and biking.
