It takes courage to tell your story, and to tell it on film for the world to see, it takes a lot of courage. In the interview above, you’ll hear from Judy, one of the participants in the upcoming film.
Judy has had a lot of trauma in her life.
She’s also had a lot of therapy …and been on a lot of diets.
None of them ever worked.
The missing piece of all those attempts was what she is learning now… how to deal with emotions.
Judy has a ways to go and her life isn’t perfect (whose is?)
She’s dealing with a painful relationship issue right now.
But this time, she’s not eating to mask the pain.
Hearing Judy’s story will encourage you.
She’s not done yet, as you will hear in the interview.
But after a few tapping sessions, she finds herself not finishing food she would have gulped down unconsciously in the past.
She feels healthier.She feels better about herself.
She feels more *connected* to life and to other people, and more comfortable in her own skin.
Weight issues can make you want to both isolate yourself and *insulate* yourself from a world that can be harsh.
You can feel really alone.
When you lose weight by dieting, the reasons you overate are still there.
When you deal with your emotions and stress, often the numbers on the scale are the last things to change.
This can be frustrating, of course, but I think getting a permanent upgrade in how you feel about yourself is worth the wait.
We’re all walking around with undigested feelings. Weight loss is often the end result of processing and managing those feelings in a better way.
That takes some skill and a lot of support.When you start to feel better, you do better, and then things start to change.
