What is your emotional or energetic response to the following words, phrases, and statements. Rate each one on the 1-10 SUDs scale with 10 being very true or very strong.
|I don’t deserve to lose weight.||Rating||It is not safe for me to lose weight||Rating|
|I’ll just regain the weight||Rating||I don’t believe I can change||Rating|
|Expectations||Rating||It’s too late||Rating|
|I want them to love me for who I am, not what I look like||Rating||Sugar Addict||Rating|
Each of these words or statements that caused a reaction for you is a potential item that is holding you back from your weight loss success and can be addressed through tapping.
Take out your lists that you made. Follow the example above and make an intensity rating for your top reasons for losing weight, the cons of losing weight, the benefits of not losing weight, and any automatic thoughts about diet, exercise, or weight loss.
Now you are ready to do some life-changing tapping. If you are having trouble getting started, consider checking out the book Don’t Diet: Reprogram Your Weight With Meridian Tapping. It has 229 examples of tapping based on this process. You can also keep reading the blog posts as I tackle some of my own food, diet, and exercise hang-ups.
Remember the basic formula.
- Make a statement that describes what needs to change.
- Rate the emotional intensity associated with that statement
- Repeat a setup statement or statements while tapping the karate chop point
- Tap on the meridians using the tapping points while using a reminder statement
- Repeat the original statement
- Rate the intensity again.
Your statements don’t have to be fancy. The standard setup statement of –
“Even though (insert thought or feeling) I deeply and completely love and accept myself” –
Is a good one and works well. Then for the reminder statement just say the thought or feeling at each point or shorten it to just a few key words.
