In the beginning of March, I decided I needed some big changes in my diet and the eating habits of my family.  I decided we would eat a whole lot more fresh fruits and vegetables and we would eliminate refined sugar.

Done!!   The children were lamenting that they would never have any of their favorite foods ever again but they have learned this isn't true.  I just cook them in a different way.

As of about the second week of April, introduce Trim Healthy Mama!!  I had been praying about what the Lord would have me do in regards to our food and this book was given to me by a dear friend.  I felt like it was a direct answer to prayer.  Since the beginning of March, I have lost 22 pounds.  YAY THM!!!!!

One month ago, enter T-Tapp, and this is what I want to share with you today.  I learned about T-Tapp in the facebook group for ladies following the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan.  I've tried every exercise program under the sun including Wii Fit Plus, ankle weights, Leslie Sansone, The Firm, Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, and Couch to 5 K.  I heard about T-Tapp and thought "meh, another workout DVD".  No, its not "just" another work out DVD.  Its really different and it REALLY works!

Here are some of the T-Tapp claims:
1.  Trim inches
2.  Lower blood sugar
3.  Build bone density
4.  Build muscle

There are many more but I'll address just a couple of these.

First, does T-Tapp REALLY lower blood sugar?!  YES, it does!!  I convinced my mother, who is a diabetic and has a degenerative disease in her spine and can't do many exercises, to try the DVD.  She took her blood sugar before she exercised and again when she was done.  It was lower by 58 points!!  IT WORKS! (She has also been able to continue to the program in spite of her spine disease and bone spurs on her spine.  ANYONE can do this!)

Second, does it trim inches?  This is the really exciting part . . . . . YES, IT DOES!!  I took my measurements just before I did my first exercises.  One week later I took my measurements again.  I lost 13.5 inches IN ONE WEEK.  I didn't eat any differently than I had been eating before I started T-Tapp!  Week 2, I lost an additional 7.25 inches!  Week three I lost another 1.5 inches.  I haven't measured for week 4 yet.  I measure on Saturdays.  So, yes, T-Tapp absolutely trims inches!!  In my case, it trimmed inches in a BIG WAY!!!  (I encouraged a lady at church to give T-Tapp a try.  She doesn't have a lot of weight to lose, she looks good already, and she lost 4.5 inches her first week!)

I have worked out 15 minutes a day for one month.  That's it.  I did a 14 day "boot camp" where you do the work out once a day, every day.  After that, you do it every other day until you reach your goal.  I have been doing the Basic Work Out + , a 15 minute work out, which I found out today I can safely do every day instead of every other day so  I'll be going to back an "every day" schedule to boost my inch trimming power!

And here is another big PLUS that I am getting with T-Tapp that I've never had with any other work out . . . . . . . . it is truly energizing.  Yep, you heard me right!  After I complete my workout, I'm energized, not exhausted!  My muscles are quivering so I can tell I've gotten a work out but I'm energized and ready to face the day.  As a low thyroid sufferer, this is a huge, HUGE, big deal for me as I NEVER feel energized.  On the contrary, I'm basically ready to drop off to sleep at any given moment.

T-Tapp truly is a fitness program that meets you on your fitness level and grows with you as you get stronger and perfect your form.  It rehabilitates your body from the inside out.  Its unique and it measures up to its fabulous claims on the website.  I'm not going to get anything from writing this blog.  I just believe in the product so much that I became an affiliate to help spread the word.  With T-Tapp, "less" really is "more"!!!

This is a picture of me just a few days before I started my THM/T-Tapp journey, 22 pounds and almost 23 inches ago.  I'll post an "updated" picture before too long.  Trying to hide behind a 2 year old is never effective!  If you are looking for an exercise program that is truly doable, regardless of your physical limitations, please consider T-Tapp!  YES, YOU CAN!!!
