I did ttapp 17 days straight, somedays the 15 min workout and somedays the total body workout and I did not loose a inch:( BUt I refuse to give up.
I ordered the Critter Crunch workout but because I am in rehab due to a sprain hip this workout was too painful so I couldnt do the workout.
I thought about ordering the tempo DVD, eye of the tiger, is this lower body, floor workout?
Anyone have any suggestions? Where do I go from here?:help:
THank you and God Bless

Personally, I think you should stick with the instructionals, BWO+ and TWO for awhile. You need to get very familiar with the instructionals and work on your form and mind body connection before you go on to other routines like Critter Crunch, Tempo Lower Body, etc. At least, that is my opinion. Your body has some healing to do with your sprained hip and maybe even more on the inside..... it will attack those areas before it starts dropping inches. Just give it time and consistency and be sure you are resting your muscles a day or two a week and you will see results.

Oh, I hope you get more feedback. I think you will, but the forum is pretty quiet during this time. If you don't get much this week, bump your thread up after the holidays and you'll hear from some more seasoned tappers than I am!

I recently posted that, I hope you will find some encouragement there. I have gone, many many weeks without changes but they do come! I still have a journey ahead of me but I know it will happen if I don't give up.
I agree that you need to take some days off now. Maybe switch to every other day. You did 17 in a row and that is awesome! Sometimes letting the body rest will encourage some changes. It needs to recover. Just be sure to keep those ribs lifted on off days and don't slouch! It really helps.
Stay focused on doing your best and learn all you can about form. Even five minutes in front a mirror learning how to properly perform a move and suck in that tummy helps you lose. So keep at it! You can do it! :clappinghands:

Glory - I am SO impressed with your 17 days in a row! That's incredible! I agree with Jean and Jen. Take a Dynamic Day Off - give those muscles a little break - it WILL happen. Some of us are "turtles"... slow to lose - but who wins the race? Every single time? That's right - us turtles!
Hang in there! Be sure to come back and let us know how you are doing....... we're here for ya!

I would suggest after your 2 day rest period, go back to instructional one for a week or 2, This workout is about your muscles getting stronger and more flexible, not simply you learning the movements. Concentrate on making each movement a workout, squeezing each muscle tight and using full extension.
Welcome to T-Tapp!

Yep, what Michelle said! And the rest!
The Instuctionals are for more than learning the moves. They help establish mind-to-muscle activation connetions, and that is one of the primary keys to success in T-Tapp!
And it comes in spurts! Many of us see more inch loss in the days following a "bootcamp" than during or right after.
Always take one day completely off, except for Primary Back Stretch and Organs in Place.
And keep coming to the forums! They are another "key to success" for most of us!
HUGS and WELCOME!

I won't add to what the others have said....they are so right! I will just ask if there were any changes that you have felt other than lack of inch loss. Like---increased energy, not so sluggish during the day, sleeping better, greater mobility or range of motion? There have been many things I've tried over the years and nothing I have done has given me what T-Tapp has in those areas.
