It’s Too Much Work to Pay Attention

Do you pay careful attention to what you eat and then want to fall back into oblivion? It’s hard to keep up the effort. If you are getting tired of working on weight loss/improved eating habits, here’s a script to tap on to help you keep going.

If you’ve never tapped before, please download my Quick Start Guide first and find out how to tap. Just go to:

Give this challenge a SUD level: How strong is your desire to forget it all and just eat what you want and not think about it? Then let’s start tapping at the karate chop point.


Even though I’d rather coast than keep paying attention to what I eat, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I’m tired of paying attention all the time, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I feel more comfortable being oblivious to what I put in my mouth, I accept who I am and how I feel.

Top of Head: I get tired of always paying attention to what I eat.

Inside the Eye: I’d rather eat whatever I want and not think about it.

Outside the Eye: It’s so much easier to be oblivious.

Under the Eye: It’s more comfortable to just eat what I’ve always eaten.

Under the Nose: It takes too much effort to pay attention.

Under the Mouth: I’d rather just coast through life.

Collarbone: There are two parts inside me that keep battling each other.

Underarm: One part wants to lose weight.

Top of Head: The other part doesn’t want to be bothered.

Inside the Eye: It takes a lot of effort to reconcile these two parts.

Outside the Eye: I’d rather not pay attention.

Under the Eye: It’s easier to not pay attention.

Under the Nose: That’s why I sabotage myself when I start to lose weight.

Under the Mouth: It takes too much effort to control what I eat.

Underarm: But if I eat on automatic, I’m sorry later.




Top of Head: I’m really protesting paying so much attention to food.

Inside the Eye: But if I don’t pay attention, I’ll just keep gaining weight.

Outside the Eye: I’d like to remember my goal and keep at it, even if it takes more effort.

Under the Eye: If I coast on automatic I’ll be sorry in the long run.

Under the Nose: I choose to keep my goals in mind.

Under the Mouth: And that means making healthy food choices.

Collarbone: It’s time to lose the rest of this extra weight.

Underarm: Even though part of me wants to protest, I’m ready!

Also write down whatever comes up for you when you tap, and also tap on that.
