I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with Trim Healthy Mama approved creamer. I also drink unsweetened tea and I have discovered True Lemon. Kind of like Crystal Light but uses stevia…very good, my kids like this. They sell it at my local Meijer. I also drink Bai once in a while and since it’s summer I am trying Trim Healthy Mama Sippers and Good Girl Moonshines.

I follow the  Trim Healthy Mama plan, but I am at goal weight so I do a lot of Crossover meals, at least I am trying to do more Crossovers. This plan works so well I have dropped more weight because I haven’t done enough Crossover meals.

I exercise five times a week for twenty-five to thirty minutes.

We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.

7.6 Breakfast: Bacon and Eggs Cottage Casserole

Lunch: Leftover Egg Roll in Bowl Part Duex from THT

Snack: Blue corn chips, salsa and a Babybel

Dinner: Brats over lettuce, turned it into a salad.

Snack: Chocolate chip cookies from THM Cookbook

7.7 Breakfast: Bring on Da Buttah pancakes from THM Cookbook

Lunch: More Brats and salad

Snack: Greekie Swirl

Dinner: We had a family get together and tried to stay on plan but ate some of the dessert, oh well.

Snack: Chocolate chip cookies from THM Cookbook

7.8 Breakfast: Strawberry Overnight Oat, this is not a THM recipe, but just really like it.

Lunch: Salad with grilled chicken, bacon, veggies and vinegar and oil dressing

Snack: Wasn’t feeling very good, ate a few pecans but that was it.

Dinner: Venison steak (so yummy) and green beans

Snack: Brainy Blueberry muffin from THM Cookbook

7.9 Breakfast:  Trim Healthy Pancakes (E) topped with 0% yogurt, blueberries and THM Syrup.

Lunch: Thawed out a bag of frozen leftover, cashew chicken

Snack: Caramel Apple Oatmeal cookies

Dinner: Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup from THM Cookbook. This was awesome, I was so impressed. Definitely a keeper.

Snack: Single Serve Peach Cobbler This is so good. I made homemade THM whipped cream because neither store I went to have Fat Free Redi Whip.

7.10 Breakfast: Blueberry French Toast Overnight Oats. This was pretty good. Threw some whipped cream on top because I can, it’s THM 🙂

Lunch: Leftover soup

Snack: Started drinking a Salted Caramel shake but my son wanted it and he had been working outside so I gave him the rest. I had a Babybel wrapped in smoked turkey…yum!

Dinner: Black Pepper Chicken from THT. This was good.

Snack: Frosted Cinnamon Muffin THM Cookbook. 

7.11 Breakfast: I haven’t had a crossover in a few days so I made hashbrowns, eggs and veggies.

Lunch: Leftover Black Pepper Chicken

Snack: Blue corn chips and salsa, Babybel with turkey

Dinner: World’s Laziest Lasagna THT over Nuke Queen’s Bread ( haven’t tried too many of the THM breads yet, this was okay) and a salad

Snack: Chocolate chip cookies from THM Cookbook

7.12 Breakfast: Nana’s Fluffy Omelet from THM Cookbook

Lunch: Leftover World’s Laziest Lasagna

Snack: Greekie Swirl

Dinner: My son twisted my arm and convinced me to take him out to dinner. I was so torn because honestly if we went to this place I wanted to get pizza and bread sticks. But I also felt like I really shouldn’t do that to my body, like I would feel guilty afterwards. Sometimes (most of the time) I can eat off plan and I feel no guilt but I have learned to be sensitive to the times I do feel that way. I ended up making the right choice and got a Chicken BLT salad with ranch. I had a bite of a break stick and a bite of pizza to satisfy that longing. And no guilt! Doing good things for my body feels good. (And I know I am going to cheat on Monday…it’s my birthday!!)

Snack: Raspberry muffin with glosting from THM Cookbook

Interesting Observations

I have discovered an interesting thing happening to me.

Now that it is summer and I am wearing shorts and I am also purchasing clothes that fit my new size more people are noticing that I have lost weight. Even though I have been doing it gradually for a year and have stopped loosing weight for the last couple of months.

That’s not the interesting part.

The interesting part is that a few people have acted like I must me sick or have an eating disorder. They approach me with concern in their tone and expression and ask if I am okay.

I can understand maybe asking once but when it is brought up multiple times it starts to irk me. Or when they talk to my kids or husband about my weight lose after they have said something to me, that really ticks me off.

The ironic part is the fact that we would never dream of saying anything to someone who has put on weight. We would never say, “Hey, I noticed you putting on weight, are you getting enough exercise? Are you overeating?” That would be considered rude.

So, why this? Why is okay to say something to someone who has lost weight but still healthy? I am within a normal weight for someone my size but we never call out over eating, or gaining weight, or the person who is sucking down pop all day long? But if I don’t put a bun on my burger something must be wrong with me?

I know I wouldn’t say anything either, but shouldn’t that be a concern for us? Someone is much more likely to have health issues if they are overweight. I have learned so much over the last year about health and long-term effects it can have on our body. But I won’t push my opinions and beliefs on anyone. If they want to know what I am doing I will share but otherwise it is their choice.

I don’t stand in judgement, it’s more sorrow. I am sad for what I see people doing to their bodies. My family isn’t perfect. I still buy junk for my husband and kids but I am trying to educate them a bit more. It’s very hard to reason with a twelve-year-old boy who loves all things sugar. I see some horrible habits with him that I am trying to break.

Anyway, I just thought I would share this interesting observation. Maybe we all need to be concerned for each other and support each other and encourage each other. Let’s celebrate with those are making healthy gains, no matter how big or small, a step forward is still a step forward.

If you are struggling to make healthy choices take it one day at a time, don’t think long-term (yet), think of today. What is one thing you can do for your body today? Then do the same thing tomorrow. Before you know it you will want to make the healthy choice because it’s normal and it feels good.

Do I Still Love THM?

51GvXSzd+SL._AC_US218_Do I still love Trim Healthy Mama?

Oh yes I do. I have been a THM since March.

I eat much yummier and indulgent food then ever before and I am maintaining my weight. Yes, I have finally found a balance and have maintained my weight within a few pounds for the last couple of months.

I love Pearl and Serene (the founders). They are so encouraging and realistic about doing this plan.

This is a lifestyle for me not a prison. I am not depriving my body of anything (except sugar but I don’t feel like I am even missing out on that with all the desserts I eat).

I do have to plan ahead. Especially now that we camp all summer (pretty much). I have to make food at home that I can freeze and take with me but that means when I am camping I am not cooking. I just pull my yummy snacks out and eat.

If you have tried everything else and nothing has worked I really encourage you to try THM. It works. You have to stick to it but it really does burn the weight off. It makes sense because you can do this for life. Most everything else isn’t something you can maintain for your life because you are completely taking out a food group and more than likely you will put the weight back on.

Even if you don’t need to lose weight but just want to eat healthier I highly recommend THM.

I do think you need to read the books to fully understand the program, otherwise you will be missing important information and buying products that you might think are on plan but aren’t.

Here is a link to the book I think you should start with, it’s not as long at their first one (although this is still lengthy). Click here. 

Or you can get the book from the library, that is what I did. My friends in Michigan can go to Mel.org and request it if you have a library card to another library and it will get sent there. Perfect!

I’m going to try to be better about blogging now that it is summer and share things I am learning.

6.15 Breakfast: Eggatable Breakfast from THM Cookbook..loved!

I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with Trim Healthy Mama approved creamer. With warm weather I will start drinking unsweetened tea and I have discovered True Lemon. Kind of like Crystal Light but uses stevia…very good, my kids like this. They sell it at my local Meijer.

I follow the  Trim Healthy Mama plan, but I am at goal weight so I do a lot of Crossover meals, at least I am trying to do more Crossovers. This plan works so well I have dropped more weight because I haven’t done enough Crossover meals.

I exercise four times a week for twenty minutes.

We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.

5.18 Breakfast: Two eggs, hashbrowns, veggies and cheese. (This is a Crossover and white potatoes aren’t really on plan, but once you are at goal weight it’s okay to throw them in and I do).

Lunch: Leftover Cauliflower Chowder.

Snack: I have missed salsa and chips so purchased some black bean salsa from Meijer, some blue corn chips and will have a slice or two of turkey to have some protein (protein is the center of THM).
