The One Thing Stopping You

If there was one thing stopping you from losing weight, what do you think it would be? In my experience, people really, really want to release those extra pounds and look/feel great. But they come up with all kinds of excuses why they can’t do it. Do any of these sound familiar to you…

  • I don’t have the time right now
  • I don’t have the money right now
  • I live too far away from help
  • I’ll do it next month
  • I’ll do it when I feel better
  • My spouse won’t be happy if I do it.


Underneath it all, there’s something else lurking – the fear of failure. What if I invest time and money and don’t succeed? Then I’ll really be discouraged. You definitely won’t fail if you stay where you are. But you won’t succeed either. You will stay stuck where you are, putting on more pounds each year and watching your health and well-being deteriorate. The only way you can succeed is to step out of your comfort zone and take a chance. Are you willing to do that, or would you like to go another year, or decade, in exactly the same place as you are today?

If you’d like to move forward but are afraid of failure, here’s a script to tap on. 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 afraid are you to try something new to have a naturally slim body? Then let’s start tapping at the karate chop point.


Even though I’m afraid to try something new, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I fear failure around becoming slim, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I’m afraid I’ll lose the weight and gain it back, I accept who I am and how I feel.


Top of Head: I’m afraid I’ll fail.

Inside the Eye: It’s easier to not try.

Outside the Eye: If I don’t try I definitely won’t fail.

Under the Eye: But I won’t succeed either.

Under the Nose: What if I spend all that time and fail.

Under the Mouth: What if I spend all that money and fail.

Collarbone: I’ll be so discouraged if I fail.

Underarm: This fear of failure.

Top of Head: I procrastinate because I’m afraid to fail.

Inside the Eye: I can’t seem to get moving in a different direction.

Outside the Eye: I don’t want to fail again.

Under the Eye: I’ve failed so many times before.

Under the Nose: It’s so discouraging to try and not succeed.

Under the Mouth: I don’t want it to happen again.

Underarm: But every year I gain more weight. I need to do something now.




Top of Head: I may fail, but what if I succeed?

Inside the Eye: Wouldn’t that be wonderful!

Outside the Eye: I can see myself at my goal weight.

Under the Eye: It feels great!

Under the Nose: I really do want to be slim.

Under the Mouth: I want to have good health.

Collarbone: I want to have lots of energy.

Underarm: If I succeed I’ll be so proud of myself. I’m will to make the commitment and give it a try. It’s worth the risk.
