I was going to say what Carrie said! I just saw her a few weeks ago and she has definitely slimmed down from when I saw her last year!
A month ago, dh and I were out for our anniversary and we did a bit of shopping. I was really looking for something new to wear to church. I had the most horrifying experience in the dressing room!!!! I couldn't find a thing in the size I "thought" was and anything else in the bigger sizes looked atrocious and they didn't even have any skirts in the larger size anyway! But the few tops I tried on looked horrid! I had been doing real well by the end of last year and had T-Tapped a bit since but had just started being more consistent again when dh and I went out.
I left there fighting the tears. I didn't talk the whole way home...an hour as I was trying not to sob. I was so discouraged that every time I've gotten serious with T-Tapp and lost sizes, I ended up with severe adrenal fatigue and sabotaguing myself. I just couldn't take it anymore. I know that I need to address my eating and I know I need to move but being depressed all the time, adrenal issues, etc, etc....I just can't seem to move forward.
Well---my mindset now is that if I never lose another size, I don't care!!! (Well---maybe a little! lol) But really....T-Tapp IS reshaping and does heal from the inside out. Done mindfully and in such a way that I keep moving forward (NOT burning myself out) it WILL keep me more flexible, with less pain, more endurance, with more energy as I now move forward into my 50s. What is my other option? If I don't do anything (even if I was able to address my eating), I would become more and more crippled! Not a good thing when your youngest is 10 and there are 2 little grandbabies (for now). I want to be active and enjoy doing things with the kids.
When I came in the house the other day, my little grandson--19 months ran up to me and I picked him and lifted him up over my head and talked into his face and then lowered him and hugged him. I felt STRONG!! I could FEEL what T-Tapp is doing (AGAIN!) to my body and I was so thankful.
Soooo---just some thoughts. I hope they encourage you to keep on.
