t-tapp before018
From size 22W to a size 6–took 5 years but it was worth it!

This past weekend marked an anniversary–my 6th anniversary since doing my very first T-Tapp workout!

It was quite a feat, really!  I had the book from the library, propped it open and attempted to do the 15 minute workout.  It only took 1 1/2 hours at first! :p

But after 3 months of not losing anything and making myself more tired with what I had been doing before T-Tapp, the inches started to move off and I felt better!

I could never have imagined, 6 years ago, that I would now be a trainer, lose 9 sizes, and regain my health.  And feeling better at 50 than I did at 44!

I’ve gained a few sizes back since a year ago, when I reached the smallest I had been in 23+ years–but I am feeling even better with all my adrenal challenges.  I know the extra sizes will start to melt off over the next 60 Days!

Teresa introduced Senior Fit at the T-Tapp Retreat in 2010.  I remember Teresa talking about it even in 2009, and I told my mom about it.  She was sooo excited for it to come out!   She passed away in May of 2010, and I decided then and there that when Senior Fit came out, I would do a giveaway in her honor.

You see, my mom believed in me. Whether it was making good grades, learning a foreign language or something on the flute, she believed in me.  She encouraged me.  My dad was into fitness the last 20 years of his life before a neurodegenerative disease silently stole his ability to move.  I think he would have really liked Senior Fit, too!

I have to express my gratitude first of all, to my parents, for making me who I am!

Secondly, to Teresa Tapp for creating the T-Tapp workout, continuing to tweak it and add new moves, new variations, new workouts!  Most of all, for her generous heart that provides so much information at the T-Tapp forums–as well as providing those forums free and without any annoying ads in your face!

Thirdly, to the trainers and veteran T-Tappers who have shared their wealth of knowledge.  I really credit the forums and those who shared there as being a HUGE key to my success!

If you don’t know my “story”, you can click on the Trisch’s Transformation tab at the top of the page.   It’s been an amazing journey and I still feel like it’s only the beginning!
