Before T-Tapp: What Was I Thinking?

Before T-Tapp: What Was I Thinking?

by Charlotte Siems

Looking back at early marriage and young motherhood, the perspective is different after 32+ years have passed. Sometimes we’ve laughed and shook our heads at a few of our inexperienced decisions and asked “What were we thinking?”

When we make a decision to change—really change—in an area of our life, we might look back on the path that brought us to where we are and ask the same thing.

When I look back to the years before I found T-Tapp and changed my life, health and dress size, I ask myself:

What was I thinking?

Here are some of those thoughts:

I’m pretty healthy. What I called healthy included constant exhaustion, bad knees, aching joints, blood sugar issues and chronic sinus problems.

I’m not that big. So what did I call size 22W and 52” abs?

I’ll lose weight next week….next month….next year. I didn’t realize that the only time we truly have is NOW—not yesterday, not tomorrow, just today.

I don’t have time to exercise. I mistakenly believed that exercise meant an hour in the gym 6 days a week. I didn’t realize the power of a 15-minute T-Tapp workout 4 times a week.

Exercise won’t help this body anyway. Even after I placed my T-Tapp order I secretly doubted that it could do me any good.

I don’t have time to take care of myself. What I really thought deep down was that I didn’t deserve to care for myself.

My family loves me just as I am. And of course they did. But they wouldn’t have loved it if I had continued on a path toward broken-down health.

It doesn’t take much for me to remember these thoughts because I thought them for 25+ years. Maybe you’ll see yourself in some of them.

Learning to stop thinking them was a process that started with my first T-Tapp workout and continues to this day. It was like a discovery process, finding my self along the way.

What are you thinking? Is it true? How’s it working for you?

  1. So I’d like to know…are your sinus problems better? 🙂

    Thank you for the encouragement. I look forward to your posts in my inbox. I have a question. Where do you buy malted milk powder? The cocoa recipe sounds wonderful but I have never seen malted milk powder.
    Thank you,

    Hi Ronda,
    Yes, sinus issues are most definitely better. T-Tapp is so good for the lymphatic system and I think that’s what has helped. Three other things that have helped: Olive Leaf nasal spray (from health food store), warm sinus pack and Deep Relief essential oil from Young Living (I will never be without it!!). Many people get help from a sinus rinse but that hasn’t helped me near as much as the nasal spray. Hope this helps!

    Hi Sharyn,
    I find malted milk powder on the coffee aisle at WalMart. It’s Carnation brand. Usually next to the Nestle chocolate milk mix and Ovaltine. 🙂

  5. Sometimes the malted milk is on the baking aisle near the chocolate chips and Eagle Brand milk.

  6. I got my T-Tapp last week while I was getting over an upper resperitory virus. I decided to watch the seminar with my hubby on Thursday night and start Friday morning. Wow! So excited to continue this week with the Intro and get started on the other workouts next week. I realized one thing has stopped my progression in the past – I’ve been really sick the entire time my hubby and I have been married (actually since I was 19 but its gotten worse since we married 11 years ago). Now I finally have some answers and I’m feeling better and realize that I have a future in front of me. Anyway, I realized yesterday while my hubby and I were talking that I’ve been worried that if he doesn’t have to take care of me anymore that he won’t love me as much. Silly thinking!!! My hubby ADORES me, in sickness and even in health LOL. Very excited to finally take control and get my life back!!

    I just put a post on my facebook page a couple weeks ago that said the same thing. What was I thinking? I have had terrible hip pain since my first pregnancy that would not go away. I put up with it for four years. Finally, I got serious about doing my t-tapp and it was completely gone in less that a week. Truly it only took a couple of sessions and that was only the 15 minute workout. I am glad my hip pain is gone and I do feel like I am getting stronger. However, I am not really seeing the belly disappear. Please tell me I can get rid of my baby belly and the extra pounds.

  8. Charlotte,
    Thank you so much for all that you share with all of us. I look forward to your emails more than you will ever know. All of those thoughts plus others for me as well. I just keep telling myself baby steps. I didn’t get this way overnight and I won’t turn it around overnight. I’m wondering how you use Deep Relief essential oil and what you use it for. Thanks, Chris
