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 (http://www.trimhealthymama.com/) 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 shrinking...in 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.... http://www.gwens-nest.com/ 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 https://www.facebook.com/groups/trimhealthymamas/ !!
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!!!
