Sweet mercy!! I have been a slacker blogger lately!!! (HA! I typed blooger and almost left it that way just for fun!!)
In my defense (if you will accept it) I have been really busy.  I have begun a new eating lifestyle that has taken me a bit to get used to. I'm not saying I have it all figured out or anything, but it is getting easier to manage my time and meal prep!!!

Let me tell you what I have been doing....

I officially started Trim Healthy Mama ( on February 24th. Not really sure why I didn't make it easier on myself and wait until March 1st.... the way my mind works amuses me...sometimes. So technically, I am going on my 4th week of this eating lifestyle change. I hate to call it a diet because of the negative connotation my amusing brain will give it.

It is an eating lifestyle.

Or some such thing like that, but definitely NOT a diet!

Yes, I bought some special ingredients.
Yes, it is a bit tricksy to get started and understanding all the ins and outs. (there are lots of us THM-ers who are willing and able to help with any confusion!!)
Yes, I am loosing weight. But more importantly, I am loosing inches!!!

I have lost a total of  10 pounds (in 3 weeks!!) and  5 1/2 inches (although it may be more because in my haste to get started I completely forgot to get starting measurements. I am going off of measurements taken a week into the plan!)!!!!!

I can actually wear rings I haven't worn in years!!
My feet are shrinking!! (Weird. Right??)

My body is the best of ways and I am so happy for this!!! It has been a long time coming.
I have always been somewhat active and have been missing out on life due to my body hurting and not being able to keep up!!
I am hoping that by July (my 38th!!!)( YIKES 38TH!!?!?!??!?!?!?) birthday (whew, I can't believe I just wrote that!!!) I will be able to go hiking with my family again!!!
By my 39th birthday, my goal is to look even better than I did at 19!!!! =)
Life is so much better as an adult! I would not go back to those teen years for anything, but being back in that body with the wisdom of my years is going to be AwEsOmE!!! =)

Here's to eating the foods we love (without the guilt)  in a specific way (without the guilt) and loosing weight while doing it!!! =) Happiness!!!

I would be glad to answer any question you may have, but one of the best resources is going to be this blog....     She has got a section (or tab if you prefer) called  Trim & Healthy. Good stuff!! Also, she is the Admin for the official THM page on FB !!
LOTS of ideas and support can be found there if you are interested!

I'm telling you!! It is so simple. The authors of the book have laid out a plan that anyone can follow and be successful in their weight loss goals!!!
