Hi Everyone,

JoAnn SkyWatcher aimed EFT at several of her mental barriers to exercising. The result? She has been exercising consistently for the past 7 months.

Hugs, Gary

This last summer I had the pure joy of being able to hang out with our God-daughter, Kamala. She was a couple of months old at that time, and I got to hold that sweet bundle of joy! To my dismay, it really hurt my elbows, wrists and hands to hold her. In fact, a couple of times I felt as though I was going to drop her. It was as though my joints couldn't handle her weight.

I have been dealing with Lyme disease for decades. One of the symptoms has been my joints aching and not having much strength in my hands. I was disappointed not only because it was difficult to hold my God-daughter, but because within the year I was also going to become a Grandmother. How would I hold my Grandbaby without dropping her?

I knew the importance of exercising-especially lifting weights. When would I ever fit in exercising?
I had been doing a lot of reading about EFT and I thought that maybe it could help me get back in shape, so I could hold my future Grandbaby. Out of my desire to hold my grandbaby I came up with the idea of getting up a little bit earlier and exercising. Here is the way that I did it. I used the following affirmations while tapping on several of my body's energy meridians.

"Even though I don't feel like exercising...."
"Even though I don't feel like getting out of bed to exercise....."
"Even though I feel like I would rather sleep instead of getting up to exercise....."
"Even though I don't feel like I can stick with an exercise program....."
"Even though I don't feel like I can pull this off....."
"Even though I don't feel like exercising......"
"Even though I hate lifting weights......"
"Even though I feel stupid using little weights....."

Seven months later, I continue to exercise at least five days a week. I started out trying to use a hula-hoop just to make it more fun. Now, I typically jump on a mini-trampoline three times a week, and do my weight lifting routine for two days. On days that I don't feel like getting out of bed to exercise, I just EFT right while I am lying in bed. Then I am able to get up and exercise!

I am pleased to say that I am proud to be a grandmother to Tessa Grace. She is now two months old and is growing quickly. Since I have been working out, I am much stronger than this last summer. I feel much more secure about holding her or my God daughter. I am so grateful to have learned how to apply eft to something that is so precious to me.
