Weight Loss with Tapping in 2014

Drill-sergeant-largerDecember is filled with celebratory foods and drinks that are good for our spirit but not so good for our waistline. Come January 1st the joy and carefree spirit of the holidays leave us and a drill sergeant moves into our head and tells us the fun is over and it’s time to diet.

This was the pattern I ran for years… and years. A new year equaled a new diet. Sure, the drill sergeant in my head made me feel awful but isn’t that what it takes to get results? It took me a long time to realize this approach doesn’t flatten my stomach but simply flattens my self-worth. You probably know that. How many times have you started a new year with a new diet only to find yourself in the last few weeks of January saying “I give up. This is too hard. Nothing works for me.” You then feel worse than when you started. The truth is, long-term weight loss is not possible or sustainable unless we make it pleasurable. We can’t make it pleasurable unless we tap away our self judgments and critical voice.

Here are a few tips to help you make 2014 your healthiest year yet.

At the end of this post you’ll find a tapping meditation that will help you incorporate all these tips.

1. Leave the pattern of panic behind

When we begin to panic about our weight the part of our brain called the amygdala begins to fire off the fight-or-flight response. This creates an overproduction of the hormone called cortisol. Studies have shown that an overproduction of cortisol increases appetite, sugar cravings and is directly linked to abdominal obesity. That drill sergeant isn’t helping you, it’s making you fat!

The best way to kick that drill sergeant out of your head is to give it a voice while you tap. It’s really that simple. When you are able to become aware of you self-criticism and tap while speaking it to yourself, you’ll find that you can hear those words without feeling the physical sensation of anxiety. From that place you can choose a more loving thought and action that supports you

2. Forgive yourself

So your biggest arm work out this holiday season was opening a bottle of wine? The past is in the past. Next year you can learn healthier recipes and strategies to help support your body during the holidays. Beating yourself up over your past actions doesn’t prevent them from happening again, it simply robs you of the power in the present moment to make a change. Be gentle with yourself. Forgive.

3. Fall in love with the journey

happy-with-the-processIf we focus on a strict goal with some made up deadline we then try to panic ourselves there by eating in a manner that’s restrictive and lacks joy. Un-pleasurable equals unsustainable. For real lasting weight loss we need to fall in love with the journey because health isn’t a destination but a decision we make every moment.

This isn’t really about a weight loss goal, this is about you showing up as your best self in 2014. It’s about eating foods that you love and help you thrive. It’s about moving your body because when there is movement in your body there is movement in your life. It’s about taking care of yourself because you have a deep appreciation for the amazing person you are. Once we fall in love with this process the results are better than we could have imagined.

Here is a tapping mediation to help you incorporate these three keys to create lasting weight loss with Tapping in the New Year:

    Yay! Love that Stacy! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  2. Stacy Taiber says:

    I read your book on tapping and weight-loss. It’s frightening when so many things resonate with you when you read something. Thank you for writing about your struggles and successes. I decided to write a manifesto of sorts based on what you wrote.

    I’m DONE.
    I’m done thinking that I am overweight.
    I’m done wishing that I will be happier, better… if I lose weight.
    I’m done not accepting who I am.
    I’m done with people who used to tell me, you have such a pretty face but…
    I’m done binge dieting.
    I’m done with all the negative crap I tell myself.

    I choose to accept myself, no matter what size I am.
    I choose to love myself.
    I choose to speak kindly and encourage myself.
    I choose to let this crap go.
    I choose to be healthy.
    I choose to find an exercise that I enjoy.
    I choose to believe people when complimented.
    I choose to be strong.
    I choose me.

    Thank you

    I just purchased your book “The Tapping Solution for Weight Lost & Body Confidence”. I am a water aerobics instructor and many of my students are overweight and in pain due to hip, back or knee problems. This mediation is profoundly calming and affirming. I am seeking techniques that I can use to help make the path to health and wellbeing more lasting and effective for me and my students. I absolutely love your approach and the tools you have created to support individuals in their transformation. Thank you for using the technique of tapping and applying it to weight lost and body confidence…you have opened me up to a new way of connecting the mind, body and spirit in my line of work. I am profoundly grateful.

  4. I am enough! says:

    Another great start to a great day!

  5. Tonia says:

    Such a great meditation! At the part about forgiving yourself tears feel, it was such a powerful emotional release. I’ll be doing this before every workout from now on. <3

  6. Cathy Everhard says:

    Thank you so much for the tapping meditation. I have the book “The Tapping Solution.” I’ve been battling weight problems for years. I’m tired of diet pills that I have a tendancy to put more weight on. What a ficious cycle. May God Bless You for coming my way. I feel better already.
    God Bless You,

  7. Linda says:

    This tapping meditation is so wonderful. I was so in need of help this morning to break a cycle of self sabatoge with food that has been raging over the past month, and in fact for over 30 years. I had considered tapping several months ago but struggled to find the guidance I needed. You are the guidance I needed! I am so grateful to you for the work you are doing and I plan to buy The Tapping Solution book today. And your book when it is published. Your work is a blessing to struggling people, continue with my blessings.
    Gratefully, Linda

  18. Suzie Alexander says:

    Thank you so much Jessica. This is the second day I have used your weight loss tapping. Your voice
    is soothing and peaceful.

    I had a thought near the end of the tapping about forming a group around this & sharing thoughts and feelings around it.
    Love & Blessings..

  19. Another inspirational, timely piece of work, thank you! says:

    Really looking forward to your book. You brother and yourself are amazing, inspirational people and my desire for 2014 is financial abundance for me to come over and train with you and bring your work and ethos to the uk.

  21. flo says:

    Over the last year I have cleared so much clutter from my body, I have attended to grief, sadness and much more, I am feeling like a new person.
    Jessica I want to congratulate you on this meditation.
    For me it seem to cover not only weight loss but a general good purpose for us to tap towards.
    Over the years I have put your meditations on my desktop in order to use them every day, but this one I know I will use every day as it is touching on so many good thoughts to start the day and of course the new year.
    A great positive tap session to start every day.
    thank you

  29. Chiloe says:

    Thank you very much !!!! 🙂

  30. Jan says:

    This meditation is a wonderful gift for feeling better. However, I would feel even better if there was a reference to the RESULTS of a number of people using this to achieve lasting weight loss. I’ve spent a lot of money feeling better but am still 30 lbs over my best health weight.

  31. Eileen says:

    Thank you Jessica, I really enjoyed the tapping exercise and it is reinforcing ideas that I have been having for some time. I look forward to your book and any other tapping exercises you can put out.

  32. Dana Middleton says:

    Jessica, thank you. I just listened to your Surrogate Tapping Meditation and it helped me so much. I love the way you tap and how you lead us into peace. Lots of love back to you.

  33. Jeanne says:

    Thanks, Jessica, this was a wonderful “refresher.” I participated in your Weight Loss Program over the summer and have been doing quite well. Although I was one of those who did not see immediate results, there was a dramatic change in my approach to weight loss. Your program ended in mid-August and I started a yoga program in early September which continues today. About mid-September I became more conscious of what I was eating and what my relationship to food was in general. Since then, I have lost 12 lbs of my 20 lb goal in a relatively easy way, no high stress or pressure at all. Although the holidays were challenging, I’m confident that I can lose the next 8 by continuing my healthy approach to living. Thank you for your program, it was incredibly helpful to approach the “problem” in an entirely new way.

  34. Big Shirl says:

    Did the tapping and within moments some stress that had been in my left ankle for five years popped up again. Everytime I tap and a shift occurs, I start to yawn, so I was yawning quite a bit during this tapping session. The ankle stress quieted down and I’ll be drinking a lot of water today in addition to having home-made turkey soup for lunch and eating some tangerines this afternoon. Thanks, Jessica.

  35. Katherine says:

    Wow! I have done meditations with you before Jessica, but this one moved me to tears. I have been so hard on myself, critical, and in this short meditation, you revealed to me how I need to let go of those thoughts that are so critical of me. I love this one! Thank you, God Bless You! I want to listen to this every day! namaste….

  36. libby says:

    Thanks Jess. That was awesome.

  37. This was wonderful. says:

    I have done tapping before, but never have I felt like this. I could feel the energy thru out my body and it felt good. Since I do therapeutic touch, I see colors and visions when I do TT. I saw brilliant yellows and blues, which wnen I do TT means it working well. I feel so good since I did this tapping.

    Thank you Jessica for the free download. I always get a feeling of peace and serenity after each session of tapping. I’m looking forward to purchasing your new book. I wish you success!

  40. Taffar Cifalia says:

    Thank you Jessica, that was wonderful; I really enjoyed the meditation and of course the tapping. I find it easier to help others, than myself sometimes, and this has helped me. Thank you again.

  41. Nancy says:

    Thank you, Jessica, that was awesome! I’m excited for how this will begin to turn my reality!

  42. Brian says:

    I try to be open minded about learning/exploring new things. What this means however, is that the mind is so open, that it looks at both ends of the spectrum. Meaning I’ll look at the pros and cons. With that said, this technique reminds me of the game my brother would play with me. The ‘name 10 chocolate bars’ game as he tapped on my forehead. I mean no disrespect, I am simply challenging this whole theory and would like to see clinical proof that this does in fact work.

    Can anyone here elaborate on their “it really works!” Comments by explaining exactly how it ‘worked’? Again, I mean no disrespect I just want irrefutable evidence that it does ‘work’. Can someone chime in please? I am sincerely interested in purchasing this product, but don’t want to throw money away on gimmicks.

    Dear Jessica and Nick,
    I want to thank you for your blog and site, which I met some months ago. Your meditations and way of tapping helped me a lot and helped other people to reach their goals.
    I wish you a wonderful year, a year of peace and love.
    And thank you so much just for being you!

    Many thanks for your continued dedication this world changing work Jessica & Nick. Much love from Angel in the UK xxxxx

  46. Gail Koula says:

    Thank you Jessica. I have to say that you have been gifted with the perfect voice for the work you are doing. Although I am not trying to lose weight, I found this helpful in making healthy eating choices a more pleasurable experience. I used to workout on a regular basis and for various reasons have let that slide. I liked the part of the meditation regarding movement and I think that is really going to be really helpful for me to start moving again.Thank you again for all you do.

  47. Janet Ditroia says:

    what a great way to kick off 2014 thank you and God bless you Jessica

  48. colleen mcCurdy says:

    Thank you for being so generous, Jessica. Your voice is great. I feel more relaxed/happier with…me, already. All the very best to you- also!

  49. Klara Fuhren says:

    Thank you so much, Jessica, it was a very deep moving tapping experience. I realized, that it could be also used for lack of money, where I’m confronted with nowadays and every year again. I felt calm whereas before I felt panic. Thank you for this New Year present.
    Lots of luck to you and Nick.
