    Ozzy, I am not a T-tapp trainer. I hope that Trisch and Ayj will chime in. I am a 1 year-old-T-tapper... Did you do the Total during your 4 day-bootcamp? Have you learnt the Instructional? IMHO, Total and a walking workout (which one??) seem very much to do every day.

    Personally, I do not know the Total because I have some health issues (adrenal fatigue tendency, problems with HIIT...). T-tapp is a different workout that works from the inside out. Some people have immediate inch loss. I haven't seen much inch loss, but I have been experiencing many other health benefits over this past year. I can share more about that if you are interested. For some of them, it took time. Yet, at first, I was inspired to continue and be consistent thanks to the energy and the way T-tapping makes me feel in my whole being. It is still one of my main reasons.

    I would just ask you to be patient, find your rhythm of moving, learning the form and the sneaky fits to do in your daily life. There are lots of info here.

    Hi Ozzy, I can understand the frustration of not being able to "see" progress. I am a slow to improve, too, with the added challenge or being a slow learner. Right now it's taking me a week to learn a move, with my current optimal alignment and activation. Trisch classes are helping me a lot, and I recommend that you check those out.

    When I was starting out, I didn't lose a lot of inches and lbs. They seem to go up and down depending on whether I'm dealing with health challenges that moment, not eating right or not being able to activate or keep good form well. In 10 months time, I only lost 1 pants size and my belly does not bloat as often so looks trimmer. Meanwhile, I've gained better range of motion, a lot less pain, almost no swelling, no pms cramp or painful lumpy breasts, my left and right calves look more equal, I have more energy and better mood + mindset. I look healthier. I could go on and on. That said, I look forward to losing inches.

    {{Hugs}}
    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......

    So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

      Greengem, I hope I am not inappropriate in say "I love you!" You are always SO VERY positive and know just how to gently guide us back to those positive thoughts.

      Hmmm less cramps, less sore breasts/lumpy breasts - I am liking the sound of that. I am terrible with the consistency until I read posts like this and am inspired to try harder to be consistent.

      I am doing Trisch's TFFS, which one are you doing?

      AlisaJDrury, that means a lot to me. It took me a long time to accept me as me right now, it is still sometimes hard. I found so much compassion here in the T-Tapp forum. Reading archives and testimonials of people going through and surviving their struggles helps me redirect my thoughts. Philippians 4:8 is a great reminder, too.

      It was only of a few months of T-Tapping when my fibrocystic breasts became "normal", and that was back when I can't complete 10 minutes of video. I check every period, I have no lump that I can feel since.

      I'm on Beautiful Basics with BBFF. I want to take all her classes, lol.... slowly.

    Hi, Ozzy! Could you give me a typical workout week? How many days did you do Total and how many MORE? How much of Total do you do?

    Also how many sizes are do you want to lose? Any health or hormonal issues, including adrenal or thyroid? You mentioned blood sugar levels--are you insulin resistant? Where are your challenging areas? (tummy, legs, arms, all over?)

    These questions will help us help you!

      BlessedMama This was one of my thoughts as well. If she isn't a seasoned T-Tapper, should she be switching around with full workouts? I love reading your and Aurora's responses...so much GREAT info!!

    Hi Ozzy,

    Welcome. T-Tapp is quality over quantity. Exactly how many days you needs to do T-Tapp a week to reap the benefits is very personal.

    I was a typical "lose 2 sizes in 1 month" beginner. I lost 20+ inches (I did not and had no idea whether I lost weight or gain weight with the 2 sizes lost) in the first month... However, when I had health challenges, when I did more workout, even T-Tapp, I gained inches. I had to scale back on frequency and duration but not necessarily be the form and alignment.

    All in all, there is no one size fits all approach. If you already have chronic health issue, adrenal fatigue, or inflammation issue, what you will find out is alleviation of health issues before seeing the inches gone. As I had experienced when my health went south, I would see my health improvement first before the outside validation.

    Since I have gone thru both, I know T-Tapp works on inside issues first before outside, my banner success in the beginning was because of no health issue at that point.

    Please tell us more about your health, then we can consider which workout and how often would likely help you to see faster results. I strongly advocate not to over do for chronic health issues. Doing more is never the mentra of T-Tapp.

      This is such a good reminder! The benefits we get matches what we are dealing with at that moment.

      Yes, GreenGem, definitely so. Sometimes we are so unaware of or in denial of our issues, we rather just label it as weight or size instead of considering the internal issues or emotional issues. What we have going thru as a whole person manifests to the physical shape. Our size is not just too many calories, as if so, surely under eat will turn back time and get just back to the size we want. Life is not just calories in and calories out, it is much more to it. Exercise, the correct exercise, is not just do how many what workout in a week and you will miraculously change as one formula. What works for me works for me, what works for you might not work for me. Toxins and inflammation is more indicative of our physical size than anything else. T-Tapp is a rehabilitative muscles building and detox program, that is the reason it works so well for everyone. When you have a lot of things to rehab and detox, you will reach your ultimate goal later.

      I agree with GreenGem. Thanks to your reply in my "lymph moving" thread, I was reminded that T-tapp moving is efficient when I don't overdo, don't force myself when I am too tired. Yesterday, I woke up exhausted, I could do my morning moves, but doing anything else felt overwhelming. So, I had a 2nd lighter day and it was totally fine. Today, I am feeling much better and will be able to do something doable for how I am feeling. We do find the balance as we learn the workouts and their "different help" for us as individuals so to say.

    Ditto on what ayj67 said about inside first. I can attest to this. When I started T-Tapp I thought I was in pretty good shape. I was noticing changes in my health like more energy, less brain fog, but was losing inches. I got discouraged and stopped for a couple of months. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS!!! T-Tapp is the Workout that Works!! You just have to give it time. All of the women in this post encouraged me to stick with it because I must have more inside issues than I realized.

    Also, most of my issues now are diet related. Take a really close look at your diet and see if there are areas where you are sabotaging your progress. Sometimes we think less is more in the diet area and it just isn't so, especially when T-Tapping. Some people believe everything in moderation, but I often wonder with T-Tapp is we are sabotaging our workouts by eating too many carbs and sugar because then when we work out, we are only working off that bad food.

    If you don't have a lot to lose (like I only have 20 lbs to lose) it is always harder no matter what kind of workout you do. T-Tapp won't let you lose what is not needed to lose. Just because I would like to be a size 6 again, this may not be realistic.

      GreenGem - if I could get my diet in check I would feel so much better. I may only lose 5 lb. but I know I would feel better. I cannot seem to back away from the snack foods these days.

      Me three, not dreaming of size 6 though. I am a 12 (I lost 1 size thanks to T-tapp) well-built, 5'74 and may never lose more inches. *But* I have never felt so well in a very long time. Alisa, we have been discussing the snack issue. I wish so much for 2019 that there will be changes in that area, but I have no clue how!!! I am almost sure that "only" leaving out those snacks would help me losing those 5 lbs...But I am so tired of challenges, that I know that I won't do that again. I must have started a dozen of those no-bad-snack-detoxes....Tragi-comic!

      @AnnaLee I am an extremist to a point so I usually just have to say NO!! And stop all the madness, deal with the effects for a few weeks then I am good. Once I am off them for a few weeks I am usually pretty easy to resist. The problem lately is that I want them, I like them, I don't want to be without them LOL

      If detox challenges stress you then do not call them that. Just say I am eliminating sugar. Once you are good with that try to eliminate bread products, unless you like them then just be more moderate. My MIL loves bread, has it at dinner almost every day. She will never eliminate it. Lucky for me, bread makes me feel bloated so I tend to feel better not eating it. I can eliminate bread before I can eliminate a cookie or muffin.

      Refer to our holiday challenge as a Holiday Accountability Check-In group...reword it for your mind so you don't feel stressed.

      Ok, that is just my thoughts on the subject LOL

      Alisa and Ozzy, these are for you to research further...

      https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-...-diabetic.html

      https://medicalcitylewisville.com/hl...age.language=1

      Basically, you cannot cheat your body out by using pretend sugar, even the blood sugar is not raised, but the insulin started pumping even more when the brain registered sweet/food. If food does not come, then the body pumped more insulin, and the pancreas overworked and insulin resistance occur. Insulin is a bulking up hormone, the more insulin your execret, the bigger you are. Kids need insulin to grow big. So, I do not put my kids in low carb, but they get health carbs.

      The blood sugar and insulin high and low are two different thing. We cannot think moderate blood sugar is the same as moderate insulin. Insulin is release at the thought and sights of food even the blood sugar is not affected. Because of that, it is better that you have higher fat in diet with carb that you will not need to eat very frequently to give the pancreas some rest... Grazing and constantly eating in low calories is actually making Type II diabetes worse off. Australia seems to be a country that is more advanced in figuring out the insulin index. Using glycemic index as your guide to eat is not really that good.

      ayj67 Thank you for the links. I am going to look at them tonight. I have heard that before about artificial sweetener that your brain doesn't know the difference and reacts in the same way whether sugar or artificial sugar or honey. However, I have read that stevia is the only one that is true natural and different...Do you believe this?

      ozzy Listen to ayj67 and forget what I said about grazing

      I am cursed or gifted with a palette that hates artificial sugar or sugar substitutes. I can taste diet soda and stevia. I use real sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc. Just a lot less and sparingly. I trained my taste-buds to have no sugar. Unsalted nuts is sweet to me... So, I do not use stevia either. I heard the only safe one is the real stevia leaf as in dried or fresh herbs.

      If I were diabetic and needed to use sugar or sweetener, I will use Whey Low. Yes, I am that nerdy, I tried all kind of sugar substitutes for my mother's sake. Funny thing, she did not object to sugar substitutes.

      However, the better way to deal with sugar is really to make sure the sweet item is just a small bite and the primary food is savory and vegetables. Vegetables are sweet, and I am not even talking about fruit.

      Ozzy, read Jason Fung's books. He is a Canadian MD trained in US. He is a kidney specialist dealing mostly with complicated issues because of diabetes. You can also look into the pancreas formula by Dr Christopher, the formula includes Cedar Berries.

    Alisa, thanks for the endorsement...

    Ozzy, there is quite a bit to address, diet, cleanses and detox is one of the thing that will help you a lot in the excess weight. A lot of the time, what manifests outside is an indication of inside health...

    First thing first, healing the guts if help decrease the brain fog and fatigue and also improve nutrient absorption. if you dumping syndrome is the same as yeast overgrowth, leaking guts, in the sense of colitis, then I will suggest you look into the Dr. Christopher protocol. I have helps a few people with going to poop 3-15 times a day, and so much gas that by late evening, the belly is extended to 7 month pregnant (while in the morning is just a slight tummy pouch - not more than 2 month pregnant if you actually can see a 2 month pregnancy). The yeast overgrowth protocol will be 3-5 days of yeast killing herbs or essential oil, then 2-3 weeks of eating only vegetables and a little meat (no carb, no fruit, no fermented food) while also taking in 5 times a day of intestinal healing herbs (slippery elms powder and licorice root powder in water). Then, there is a another 2-3 days of intense yeast killing herbs, and then for a week or two increase probiotics and fermented vegetables as often and as many times as possible (10 times regular suggested dosage) to repopulate the microbiome.

    Once you get that dumping syndrome reversed, you will find yourself 5-10 lbs lighter (someone I just help last month told me that she is 10 lbs lighter, she is not even unhealthy, she is a Tai Chi teacher that she teaches 4 hours a day). You need quite a bit of nutrient to repair and rebuild the damage done by various surgeries. Once you are healthier and taking in nutrients properly, your body can do its own repair faster.

    If you are keen to alternative modality to heal and repair scarring tissues and muscles, I will suggest you look into LED infrared light pad. Otherwise, look up castor oil pack.

    I will suggest you look into Paleo diet and read both the Obesity Code and the Diabetes Code by Dr. Jason Fung. Cut the cereal, wrap and potato out even if you are not gassy after the Dr. Christopher protocol. You have yeast overgrowth and the carb feeds the yeast and you are gassy and having colitis because of that. If you can taking in more garlic and onion (raw is even better), it will help you keep some of the yeast.

    Workout wise, until your yeast overgrowth and leaky guts Colitis is under control, I will suggest you stick with More Step Away a few times a day. It helps with detoxing and improve circulation that is so needed for all people afflicted by insulin resistance. Listening to your body is the best. Going thru the workout meticulously is also important. Cancer is really a toxin elimination, sluggish lymphatic, malnutrition issue. Let's fix the malnutrition first by fixing the guts, then the rest will fall into place a lot easier.

  • #10
    thank you so much for everyone input. i have been to 5 dietitians in the past few years from regular to homeopathic unfortunately my issues are due to the cancer and surgery needed to get it out. the consensuses was to blend all my food and drink it because my stomach doesn't digest food even with probiotics. who can drink everything they eat???carbs although bad for me are the easiest to eat and not suffer horrible pain. red meat out of the question, raw veggies never, I thought you could lose without diet not true ?? what about my workouts am i doing enough??alisa seems to have added her diabetic issues i am not as concerned with them when i eat 3 times a day exercise a little everyday and drink my canary milk my sugar is in line i just want to feel better in my muscles shrink my waist maybe get stronger as i age. i did hear hoedowns helped sugar levels decrease and i haven't notice that. i did find after a workout my sugar increase oh well

      Hi Ozzy, I wanted to clarify that I DO NOT have diabetic issues. I have diet issues meaning I put the wrong foods in my mouth LOL but I am working on that

      AYJ was posting websites to read for clarification about some misconceptions regarding certain food intake and how it effects diabetes.

      Together, we can work through anything, that is why we are all here!
