"Even though my [mom and/or dad] think I'm fat, I deeply and completely accept myself. "

The past few weeks I've been working with *Susan* who has, for years, been unable to lose weight and keep it off. Of course she tried every diet under the sun, but she was never successful.

This only increased the intensity of her feeling that she was never "good enough."

In our tapping sessions, it was revealed that Susan's family (mom, dad, grandma, and others) were - and still are - VERY judgmental when it came to weight.

During a visualization, all she could see was that everyone was looking at her critically.

Susan was especially stressed because she was soon to be married, and her anxiety about finding the right dress was nearly driving her crazy.

She was certain nothing would look good and was very sad to realize that the joy of her upcoming wedding might be overshadowed her obsession about her weight.

After a couple of sessions, Susan was able to talk to her sister about weight issues and even set some boundaries with her parents. With tapping, she released the anxieties surrounding her "size" and she was able to understand that the negative energy around her weight really belonged to her family members, not her.

She literally felt like a weight had been lifted.

Susan bought a beautiful dress and was able to see herself in it, without judging herself. She also released nine pounds in the past week, as she let go of the anxiety surrounding the number on the scale.

She has been tapping for a few minutes each day to stay calm and balanced and has used tapping to decrease the intensity of any wedding related stressors.

What a joy for her (and me!) to see that Susan will truly be able to celebrate her marriage without worrying about her weight!
