My journey to become a Healthier Me!

 

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

TRIM HEALTHY MAMA

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!

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
