Now that the holidays are here, are you anxious about overeating and putting on more pounds? Are there certain foods that really tempt you, that talk to you as soon as you see them? These troublesome foods can use some extra attention.
So, let’s tap on it. With tapping just 10 minutes a day you may just have a whole different experience this year. If you’ve never tapped before, please download my Quick Start Guide first and find out how to tap. Just go to: www.MakingWeightLossEasy.com
Give this challenge a SUD level. How hard is it for you to resist this food? If you totally cannot resist eating it, give it a 10. If it calls you to a lesser degree, give it something between a 9 and a 0. Then let’s start tapping at the karate chop point. The script below is just an example. Please substitute the food that calls you.
Even though I can’t resist this chocolate cheesecake, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
