So many people think that they would be happy if they could just lose weight or look differently. What if that is completely backward? What if the weight is not the source of our unhappiness, but is actually the result of our hidden feelings and beliefs?

This is the premise of Jessica Ortner's new book, "The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence". Weight loss has become big business and a national obsession, as two thirds of Americans are overweight and one third are considered obese. If you have tried all of the diets and programs (you probably have or you wouldn't be here), this is the missing component that other programs need.

Another diet is not the answer. Losing weight is not rocket science. There is not a heavy person in the world that doesn't know that broccoli is good for you and donuts are bad. The reason most diet books don't work is because they focus on weight or food, but never address the root cause of why you are eating too much. The real heart of this book and process is not about food. It is about loving yourself and feeling good about your body.

I really enjoyed Jessica's writing style. It is like a personal conversation with a friend. I think everyone can relate to her openness and honesty. As she states, "I could no longer use my weight as an excuse not to be happy or go for what I wanted in life. I began to look at my relationship with my body, food, and exercise as well as sexual intimacy, pleasure, and perfection, and I realized that I wasn't broken. I just had layers of beliefs that made life feel unbearable if I couldn't turn to food for comfort." In the end, it is a feel good book about embracing life and feeling good about yourself.

This is not a book to just read. It is crucial that you do the tapping.

This book is what everyone else says...warm, inviting, like talking with a friend. Jessica Ortner has been there and done that and was able to get a smaller sized t-shirt from the journey. So she understands.

In her book, Jessica addresses what extra weight is really about and gives the reader actionable (and easily doable) steps to effect healing within themselves and to make the shifts that they desire in their bodies, energy and lives.
Tapping is easy. You can do it anyway and Jessica shows, in this book, how easy it is to make those changes that you have previously struggled with. While Jessica didn't 'invent' tapping, she brings the practice to readers in such a comfortable, safe way that they feel supported as they work through the book.

But this book's story is much bigger than tapping or weight loss. It is about confidence. As a matter of transparency, I am the illustrator for this book. My first published illustrations. I am so excited and the reason that I was able to share my art with the world was because of this practice and the way Jessica teaches this process. She helps women to find their inner strength, to be willing to step up in life and say "I am enough". Upon reading this book and doing the tapping, the first thing that the reader will find is PEACE. Stress starts to melt away. For me, quickly. The anxiety lessens throughout the process of tapping. This feeling of calm is worth the price of the book, even if there weren't any other results. But there are many more.

After years of trying to give up diet soda, I just stopped because of this process. I didn't try. I just didn't want it anymore! That was huge for me, as I knew I was poisoning myself with the chemicals in the drinks.

I hope I can update this review later! Reading the Kindle version. It's an awesome read and I am very intrigued. I think the book is written very well and I can't stop reading... until I get stuck on an obviously missing section. That is more than annoying! Fix the electronic version before you charge money it! It's like a stupid cliffhanger in a great series :-(.

I would recommend this book to any female out there. If you are happy with your weight or not, this book is about so much more. Written in an easy to follow and relatable style, it guides you through tapping and the science behind it and then walks you through how to use tapping for yourself in relation to multiple aspects to your emotions, stress, cravings, beliefs, past events, and more.

Anything that could be holding you back, not just from getting to your ideal weight, but from fully living your life, can be helped with tapping. I suggest keeping a notebook with you as you read the book because things are going to come up, whether you have aha moments, whether you read something and it strikes a nerve or maybe you just resist the whole thing. Write it down! Those are all clues to help you use what this book teaches you. The same happens as you work with tapping.

Jessica Ortner is very relatable and through her own story and stories of those she has worked with, she presents a new way to look at weight, at body confidence and at life. This book breaks it all down in a way that you can easily follow it at your own pace. If there is an area you need to work on more than others, you can take the time and work on it or you can always come back to it. This is not just a great book to read now but this is one to keep on your shelf to go back to anytime you start to feel like you aren't your best.

This book can help you learn to truly like yourself and to let yourself shine. It goes through many layers of the emotions behind weight but also talks about exercise and food in a new way. It doesn't just say, eat this and don't eat that or do this workout at least 6 times per week. This is about creating a new lifestyle for yourself and a new way of looking at everything.
