The Mental and Emotional Keys to Lasting Weight Loss and Body Confidence

If you ask the average woman on the street how she feels about her weight, you’re likely to receive a scowl, both for how she feels about her weight and for how she feels about you for asking. For many women, thinking about their weight and their bodies is an uncomfortable and emotional issue.

Society puts a great deal of pressure on women to look good and be fit. Diet and exercise programs abound! Lots of frustrated women are on a constant roller coaster ride of one diet after another, trying to find the magical solution. With all the pressure and all the programs, why is it that in the United States alone, two-thirds of all women are overweight, with half of them categorized as obese?

What if diet and exercise are not enough? If weight loss is clearly such an emotional issue for women, why aren’t more experts addressing the emotions instead of continuing to focus solely on the endless deprivation and mania of calories in and calories out?

EFT tapping expert, Jessica Ortner, agrees. She been helping women achieve lasting weight loss and body confidence with a more systemic and holistic approach involving tapping. Jessica says,

“Focusing on diet and exercise FIRST when trying to release weight is the wrong approach. You need to first focus on what’s going on inside you, in your unconscious brain, that is holding you back.

It’s not that diet and exercise don’t matter, it’s that the ability to eat well, exercise, and feel safe releasing weight are all run unconsciously in your brain, and if your brain isn’t wired the way you want it to be, then you’re just setting yourself up for failure.

If you’ve struggled and gone from diet to diet, you’re likely to continue the trend UNLESS you get to the root of the problem.”

When I talk about Jessica’s approach, the first question I’m usually asked is whether I used it to lose 80 pounds back in 2009 and keep it off. My answer is, “No and yes.” When I lost my weight, I didn’t know about tapping yet, but I discovered the same essential insight on which Jessica’s tapping work is based.

I realized the emotional, mental and spiritual roots of life-long physical fitness and health. Falling in love with myself unconditionally by demonstrating love, respect, curiosity, compassion and gratitude for myself no matter what, led me to the same place—a life of generous, effortless, gracious flow filled with faith, hope, prosperity, peace and joy. Now that I know about tapping, when I find myself straying from healthy nutrition and exercise (yes, I still stray sometimes as any of us can do when we become overwhelmed by stress and ancient self-destructive scripts), I’m able to use tapping to help me reveal and release the specific fears that are fueling the re-emergence of my former unhealthy (and most decidedly unloving) nutrition and exercise habits.

In her FREE webinar, “The Biological Weight Loss Trap,” Jessica goes into detail concerning the major role that our underlying emotions, beliefs and traumas play in our weight and how we feel about our bodies. She shares science and research that prove exactly why ignoring your emotions and only focusing on diet and exercise doesn’t work.

Her content-packed FREE webinar will help you figure out what is going on inside you that is preventing you from releasing weight, and just as importantly, what is holding you back from feeling comfortable and confident in your body right here and now. This presentation will give you greater insight into and control over the unconscious things that make it challenging to release weight. There are a number of times available to attend.  I hope you’ll join us.

During her previous struggle with her own weight, Jessica became passionate and knowledgeable on the subject. She’s the author of a new book being released in May called The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence which is already getting strong endorsements from early reviewers like Cheryl Richardson,  Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Dr. Mark Hyman, Gabrielle Bernstein, Marci Shimoff and many more. Be on the look out for Jessica’s book next month.

Jessica has coached over 4,000 woman on this topic over the last year alone. Here are two of the hundreds of emails Jessica has received from clients she has helped use tapping to lose weight and increase body confidence:

The results were DRAMATIC. I stopped wanting and eating sugar. I began to WANT to exercise. I lost 11 lbs. within just 2 months. After 5 more months, I’d lost another 7 lbs. The day after New Year’s, I stepped on a scale and I had lost another pound instead of gaining anything. In the year since, I have not dieted or restricted food AT ALL!” —Rhonda Robinson

“I have struggled for over 15 years with weight fluctuations and emotional issues surrounding food and body image. Through working with Jessica, I was able to discover the root cause of my eating/body issues and understand how to move forward. Not only is there a physical transformation, but also a significant emotional weight loss as well.” —Christine Haskin

Time to get off the diet and exercise hamster wheel! You’ve got nothing to lose except the limits fear, stress and pain have been placing on your life.
