Using EFT For ...

From 400 lbs to Size 16 After Tapping on Childhood Events

Dear EFT Community,Joy Vogel of Mexico relates her remarkable story of weight loss with EFT. When she feels a craving, she traces it to a specific emotional event and taps on that event. This has led to gradual but very significant weight loss.

By Joy Vogel

I work nearly 10 hours a day, six days a week, as a teacher and department head, and serve as pastor of our church group as well, so I was getting worn out by my weight problem. I began a program of weight loss just over 2 years ago.  I was near 400 pounds at that time, and had begun to have serious problems with my feet, legs and back.

I have always been overweight, even as a tiny child.

In fact, my dad told me several years ago that when he first saw me in the hospital, he knew I would have weight problems my whole life (kindly meant, but not helpful, Daddy Dear!)

So I grew up believing I had inherited my mom’s weight problems, my thyroid condition; and my eating habits seemed uncontrollable.

I have never been successful at weight loss, and had tried every diet I heard of for years, and had about given up hope as I gained more every time I stopped one.

My husband, who, thank goodness, has loved me through it all, even made me promise no more diets.  But I found something that I felt might be different and decided to give it one last try, and he finally, reluctantly agreed.  I was surprisingly successful at first, but then began to fear I would backslide as usual.

About that time, I learned of EFT and decided to combine it with the diet, and have had great success.

As I continued the diet, along with tapping, I finally had to confront a sudden onslaught of seemingly disconnected events in my very early childhood which I had not been consciously aware of.

Putting them together, I was able to understand there has been a hideous event in my life that I must have been unwittingly protecting myself from ever since.  Through EFT, I have been able to tap it into a far-off corner of my mind, where it seems now to have happened, but is no longer important.

I still tap on it once in a while, not to forget, but to make sure it is no longer a reason to hide behind my weight and try to be unattractive to men.

Now I understand myself in new ways, and feel free to be a new person. 

If I am ever tempted to eat something that is not on my diet, I can now trace it to some part of my past or to a present feeling of fear or frustration, etc. and I just tap a round or two, and my craving disappears and I can go do other things and not obsess on food as I used to do.

I am not weighing any more, as I found it depressing.  Even though it usually showed a loss, it just seemed I had so dauntingly far to go always.  So now I just tap and diet, and sew or buy clothes. :=)

At this point, I wear a size 38 bra and 16 in dresses with a full skirt.

The goal is finally in sight, thanks to EFT!  I feel I am living a miracle!
