Success in 2 weeks -even with Fibromyalgia!
Sometimes it's tough to get started with fibromyalgia. You think you are taking it easy and then-wham! Knocked down, drug out. I've been pulling out T-Tapp for the last 8 or so years, see brief results and then relapse into bed.
THIS time, I'm not really sure what is different, but I am determined to keep going! I'm dragging a few friends along with me, too. They have been amazed at the difference in just 2 weeks.
Starting slowly and trying to listen to my body, I've mainly been doing T-Tapp Basic + Tempo. I can't do a bootcamp-this body can't go there. But I can get 2 days in a row with a total day or 2 of rest. If I can, I do E. Back stretch and hoe-downs on the off days. One day I plowed through Instructional #2, it took me all afternoon! I keep the book at my side and try to refine my form every time.
I know some people are unfamiliar with this program and want to know what the catch is. If there is any catch I would have to say that early dramatic loss is fluid draining and quick tightening of the core girdle. It seems as easy to gain your losses back as quickly as they left in the first place if you stop. The body has to start making these losses a little more permanent before you can relax too much. I have to keep going no matter what-gently!
I thrive on success stories and before and after, that's why I'm writing this. Maybe someone will be helped by my journey! A little accountability doesn't hurt, either!
I started 2 weeks ago, age 51, height 5' 6.5"(in the morning!) 204.8lbs. Very short torso, long legs, big busted.
Today I have lost 12.75" and weigh 205.4!
Gained 6 lbs of muscle and .2lbs of bone mass and I'm still 51
The part I find interesting is that 11.75" were lost the first week, the muscle and bone gain, this week! Last Wednesday I weighed 201.2 and I've been pretty good food-wise. If my body wants to take turns in where improvements happen, I guess I'll let it.
Can't wait to see what happens in the next 2 weeks!
Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided.
