New Jeans are Nice, But Great Health is Better

New Jeans are Nice, But Great Health is Better
by Charlotte Siems
Wearing the clothes we want to wear is a great feeling. Wowing old friends with our new and improved appearance is a rush. Calling our husband or girlfriend from the dressing room, with the news that we fit in the next size down, is a blast. Good stuff to be sure! But when you think about it, these results are just icing on the cake compared to the great things T-Tapp does for our health.

When I weighed 258 pounds and wore a size 22W, my health was going downhill fast. At the time I was 47 years old; a perimenopausal woman with a one-year-old and a three-year-old. It seemed that all of a sudden, life had caught up with me. From my vantage point in the recliner, I had an epiphany: I wanted to be alive and healthy for my littlest children in the years ahead, to do the things with them that I had done with my older children.

My health issues read like a laundry list of complaints:
  • bad knees (sometimes I could hardly get in bed or walk up stairs)
  • chronic sinus issues that required antibiotics several times a year
  • increasing blood sugar issues (with a family history of late-onset diabetes)
  • extreme fatigue to the point that it was hard to go places
  • hormonal imbalances leading to PMS and constant struggles with depression

When I found T-Tapp, I hoped to lose a couple of sizes for upcoming weddings. After just two weeks of exercise, one of my children said to me, “Wow, Mom, you’re not tired all the time anymore.” I was shocked and pleased. In addition:

  • The knees took a while to rehabilitate and they still crackle some, but they no longer hurt.
  • Sinus infections are rare. 
  • The T-Tapp move Hoe Downs takes care of any sensations of rising blood sugar.  
  • In the throes of menopause, I’ve had virtually no hot flashes or mood swings.
In fact, menopause deserves further explanation. A couple of years ago I began experiencing sleep disturbances and unusual fatigue, along with other symptoms of hormonal and thyroid issues, including a 15-pound weight gain in 3 months with no change in my eating patterns.  My health care provider did several types of tests and diagnosed low thyroid, adrenal fatigue and severe hormone imbalance. 

She was absolutely amazed at the mildness of my symptoms compared to the hormone levels.

She kept staring at me while she asked how I felt. Did I feel angry and aggressive? No, just a little anxious. Was I exhausted? No, except for a few times after workouts. I told her that I consistently did T-Tapp workouts and I figured that was what had kept me on an even keel. 

The practitioner was so impressed that she began T-Tapping herself and lost a size in the first month! 

Everyone began asking her what she was doing and now she recommends T-Tapp to her patients who struggle with thyroid problems and mid-life hormone upheavals.

I know several people personally, who feel that T-Tapp gave them their life back. Each of these women were considering surgery for back or knee problems, but no longer need it. The T-Tapp forum and website are full of success stories of people finding amazing health improvements. It’s the real deal, folks.

Smaller jeans are nice and compliments are fun, but I’ll take great health and energy any day.

    The hope to overcome weight challenges and silly hypothyroid are my motivation for starting to t-tapp. I started just the back warm up last night. It was really tough, but I could feel working those muscles. After getting over the cold the crept up today, I’m going to do the back warm up again and get through the whole thing! Really like the hoe downs. Those are fun!

    Great post, Charlotte. Just what I needed to hear! It’s easy to forget how I “used to feel” before T-Tapp. I need to be reminded that even if the inches aren’t falling off, I certainly don’t want to go back to having no energy, hurting all the time, and unable to participate in day-to-day life!

    New Jeans that fit like a glove with out the bumps and rolls is an amazing feeling – however – having plenty of energy and feeling GOOD is a major plus. I am on week two of TTAP and love it so far. Next week starts the 45 mins and I am looking forward to it – Thank you for sharing it with me

  5. I have had a degenerative neck problem for years, visiting my chiropractor at least monthly.  I started T-Tapping regularly a little over a year ago, and have cut my chiroprator visits down to twice over the past year.  The times I’ve started having increased neck pain, I realized I had been slacking in doing T-Tapp, so I got back on a regular routine of exercising and the pain went away.  Thanks, T-Tapp!

    Amen to your comments about improved health!  I am experiencing these same kind of benefits from T-tapping consistently for a year and eating a very healthy diet with controlled portions.  After I lost 75 pounds I had to stop taking my blood pressure pill!  Just last week I checked my blood pressure.  It was 117 over 70, with a heart rate of 69!  Not bad for an overweight 61-year old woman! The knees are better, too!

  7. I’m in week two of your 60 day Renew Me Virtual Class and I am of a different mind-set now; it’s not about the jeans size, the inches will eventually fall off; it’s about being healthy for my family and myself. It’s about life! Thank you for helping.

    Charlotte thanks so much for all the encouragement you give! Do you remember how long it took you to get rid of the extra 15 and if it was just consistency that took it off or did you do anything special during that time? Thanks again!
