Hey SP!

My name is Alethea and I am so happy I came upon this site years ago! I joined back in May 2009 and had an amazing start, but I lost focus a few months in and I regained the little bit of weight that I did lose. Over the years I was sporadically active, one moment gung ho, then the next, a no show. I kept asking myself "What GIVES?! Why is this weight not FLYING off? Like, today already??" Little did I know that that was not the most important factor in this journey. ...
Hey SP!

My name is Alethea and I am so happy I came upon this site years ago! I joined back in May 2009 and had an amazing start, but I lost focus a few months in and I regained the little bit of weight that I did lose. Over the years I was sporadically active, one moment gung ho, then the next, a no show. I kept asking myself "What GIVES?! Why is this weight not FLYING off? Like, today already??" Little did I know that that was not the most important factor in this journey.
While I was away, for these past 2-3 years, I got bigger. Not only did I get bigger, I got even more dissatisfied with life itself. They always say that some people are their own worst critic, but I would take it further than that. Not only did I criticize, I mentally beat up, kicked around, then yelled at myself while I was down for not following the numerous plans, workouts, etc. that I tried. Even though none of this was happening out loud/physically, the effects were just the same. Not wanting to go out...depression...lack of interest in life...no self worth..no self esteem...you get the idea.

Then, amidst all of the reading/studying/analyzing that I continuously do on just about every topic imaginable, I began to shift my mental focus from any and everything related to life, to my self. "Jackpot", I thought. "THIS is where I was going wrong." How could I NOT clear out the (mental) attic before getting settled into a new home (body)? Honey, when I turned on that light bulb and looked around there was so much that needed discarding. So, I tried going to a therapist...but for some reason it felt off. Like it was just a job to them, and not a very interesting one at that. So instead of looking at a disinterested expression for an hour and still feeling like I wasn't getting anywhere, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I began treating my mind like a subject at school, and the more I dug up and studied about my inner self, the more I was able to release and come to terms with regarding my childhood, failed relationships, guilt, faults, fears, doubts, shames, etc. The work was hard, I'm sorry, excruciating, and honestly I didn't think I would make it through...but I did. I did because I took it one step at a time and released things my own way. I have finally found my true self, my clarity and my purpose in this life...to help others get out of the mental prison that I was in, so that we all may blossom and come into who we were truly meant to be. =)

Luckily, I kept up with everything that has helped me (I'm such an information hoarder..lol), and even created a bunch of exercises of my own (not physical, mental) to help others who are ready and willing to do the inner work that so many of us neglect. I am here to help, teach, love and guide everyone I come into contact with back to the peace we were all born with, and with things the way they are in the world today, I feel there is no better time than now to make things right!
I love to motivate and be motivated so buddies are welcome, the more the merrier! LET'S GO!!!
I've updated the right side of this page to make it current, and I will every time something changes. When I get things organized and ready, I will provide the link to my new YouTube channel dedicated to teaching introspection, self-love and sufficiency, enhancing natural beauty on a frugal budget, and much more. I hope to see you there! Feel free to also add me on Facebook, the link is also on the right. Until we meet again!

I'm so glad someone created the TapouT XT Team. I don't officially have my DVD's yet but will be soon. I can't wait to start them. I know it's going to be tough as I've got alot of weight to loose, but will be SO worth it in the end.

Thanks again! emoticon emoticon
