View Full Version : I'm wondering if this is unusual?

I just started T-tapp BWO+ daily about two weeks ago, stopped for a few days, and started again at the very beginning of the 60-day challenge. I still am unable to do Hoedowns since I'm 65 pounds overweight and out of shape, but the workout is getting slowly easier. I have lost over 2 1/2" in my waist, at least an inch and a half in my hips and my abdomen. Already, I can tell I'm starting to look better in my clothes!!
This week, I started my menstrual cycle. The amazing thing is that I have not experienced ANY of the monster food cravings I usually have to contend with, and my fatigue has been comparatively mild, which for someone like myself that is hypothyroid is a BIG deal!!!!
Anyone else notice that their food cravings have lessened, and PMS isn't nearly as bad? I'm happy with just that change, let alone the inch loss!

Yes, I was diagnosed by my gynocologist at age 32 with extreme PMS symptoms that were affecting me as much as 14 days of every 28. I got a lot of it under control with her advice, including taking an excellent multivitamin, drinking enough water and changing bras for additional support so that my breast pain was helped. But undoubtedly T-Tapp has been so much help to me - the very best exercise I've found for easing the symptoms. And Teresa's advice about the correlation between white flour and bloating was a revelation to me. I don't always do her GM-MM plan, but just being aware of what foods can cause water retention for me - that's wonderful help. I also think her Alfalfa supplement helps.
I also have found that I have lessened cramps/pain when T-Tapping regularly and I didn't find it to this extent with other exercise. My cycles can almost "slip up on me" when I'm tapping regularly, but when I'm not the cramps announce them.
What a wonderful report - thanks for sharing with us. 2 1/2 inches in the waist - Woo Hoo!

I'm going through perimenopause. When I filled out my paperwork to see my new physician, I asked him if by definition my cycles were irregular....sometimes, they are 30 days. Other times, they are 26. I think I even had a 23 or 24 day cycle. Basically, he told me I could expect to go through menopause within 2-5 years, and I will be 40 pretty soon. And, I can completely sympathize with 2 weeks worth of PMS a month.
White flour products are definitely not good for you. They are highly refined, and totally devoid of fiber.....yet isn't it just complete irony that white flour products are the ones we crave most during that time???
I'm happy that T-tapp has given you relief....your symptoms sound worse than mine......have you been diagnosed with PMDD?

flour addictions are not usually considered as such... neither is sugar... the europeans don't have the additives/preservatives/colorings as our breads do & find one piece is satisfying... if gluten sensitivities are unknown, they may exist as part of the cravings, which inflame hormonal changes.
extra vit. b6, e-complex, flaxseed, evening primrose, borage & fish oils, alfalfa, hydration, red clover tea, rooibos (red bush) tea, walking, stretching, & whole grains rather than any processed carbs will minimize the hormonal fluctuations & balance blood sugar. along w/proper rest, recreation, exercise & breathing, should smooth out the ups & downs naturally.
keep movin'..the path shows up behind you...

I have definitely noticed that I crave less junk food. So far, that's the only real difference I've noticed with my PMS, but I suspect that I may have some hormonal imbalances, and I think that T-Tapp may be balancing things out. I am hoping that the longer I keep tapping, the more differences I'll notice in the PMS/menstrual cycle area.

I saw Dr Rob Carlson at the Safety Harbor Retreat 2009 and he said that PMS was caused by too low progesterone production in the body. With the appropriate levels in the body, he said that all the symptoms of PMS and periomenopause/menopause would be alleviated. Now that he has me on a bioidentical version of progesterone, I have noticed those symtoms are better and in cases gone. It has helped made my cycle more regular. I am 50 so that is a good thing and I have thyroid/Hashimotos and adrenal fatigue issues. And coupled that with eating more veggies my cravings are gone. If I do all I am suppose to I feel so much better.
So you might ask your doctor to check progesterone levels. Lots of research that Dr Rob told me about supports this.

Vive la difference!
I had my period a week ago and was shocked when it started - I had no symptoms. This is after 6 weeks of almost daily (but small) doses of T-TAPP. In the first session, my chronic lower back pain was cured and since then it's been nothing but good stuff for the rest of my body.
Favourite work-outs - Ladybug Floor and Standing (I hardly ever do TWO).
Tempo Lower Body - Floor and Standing.
Each of the above is around 30 minutes each and considered a full work-out.
