Back in May, I blogged about becoming a Healthier me.
I can not believe how unhealthy I really was! I thought that if I just lost some weight, I would feel better and that would be the end of it.
That my friend was before I read a book called
THIS IS A PICTUE OF ME TAKEN IN JANUARY.
I really don’t like it.. really I hate this picture. I never seen myself as big as I really was.
I had a friend post on Facebook the success she was having with THM (trim healthy mama). I thought to myself I need to read this book and see what its all about!
So I broke down and paid a whopping $35.00 plus shipping for it. ( I have never in my life paid that much for a book before.. but it has been money well spent and worth every penny.)
I decided to read it and try to put into practice the principals taught by this two wonderful sisters.
In the beginning, I did have moments of doubt. I thought how can I eat chocolate candy, cheese, butter, rice, beans, and a whole lot of other things be good for me.. and help me loose weight?
I learned that it is how I eat them that helps you loose weight and become healthy. To be honest, I thought most of the food I ate was healthy.. I learned that some were and some were not… my combinations had to change.
In Trim Healthy Mama, you are taught to eat what are called S meals, E meals, and Full Pull meals. The principals work!
(I really can go into deep details about the book, but it would be too long of a post for your reading.. believe me there is a ton of information that would make your mind spin.)
As my friend says… “The proof is in the pudding!”
This journey has not been easy.. I had to learn (and still am) how to rethink my food prep, cooking it, and my meals all together.
I started slow, doing one meal at a time.. and before I knew it, I was just shedding the pounds.
Next thing I knew, my aches and pains where gone. I could see my ankles, walk without pain, and just function like a normal person again.
After almost 9 months, I can say I am a healthier me! This journey has been fun! I am not completely where I want to be with my weight yet.. but I have completed the goal I set for myself for this year.
I told myself beginning this, that I wanted to loose 56 pounds before December 31, 2013… I DID IT!
If you think that you can’t lose weight or get healthy…..
you really should take a look at Trim Healthy Mama.
You may just be surprised… I was!
Here’s to your Health!
