This has been an incredible journey that is still going on. See where I started. I love food and I don't feel deprived from it with THM which stands for Trim Healthy Mama, a new way to eat that yields wonderful results. When I look at the pictures above, I wonder how I let myself go that long. I was miserable, lacking energy, and even depressed. I needed a change and I found it with THM. If I can do this, then you can do this. It takes one good decision at a time. One nutritious meal, one satisfying snack, even one refreshing drink at a time and did I mention those can all be healthy too. We succumb to poor eating habits one choice at a time. We learn to overcome those habits one lesson at a time.
This is me 100lbs lighter!!!! I am happier, more energetic, and I am healthier. Many have asked me about food journals, I don't keep journals. The way I did this was by setting a timer, to eat every three hours. I start my day with an S breakfast, lunch normally is E, and dinner is whatever goes with the meat I am using. See THM Explained if you didn't understand that. Most of my snacks are Greek yogurt with Polanar jelly, celery with Laughing Cow Cheese (which my husband hates paying for), cheese sticks and pepperoni, and Fat Stripping Frappes (a THM recipe). I just started adding fuel pulls in my regiment, since I have S and E meals down. I don't stress over it, I follow the recipes, adapt my own and go with it. I don't have a secret way to lose weight. I just follow the plan. When I can't, like at some restaurants or church dinners I don't feel bad, I just get back on plan at the next meal.
The thing that helps me most is the wonderful THM community. The THM Facebook page has helped tremendously. The support, encouragement, recipes, and openness of all the ladies makes this journey easier. The days I get discouraged, I encourage myself with others' success. We are like a family supporting each other.
