I am so excited to announce that I reached my goal weight a few weeks ago. The Trim Healthy journey has been such a blessing for me. I began at the end of August 2013 expecting this to be another diet that would work initially and then go the way of other diets, another failure to add to the books. I have been so pleasantly surprised at God’s grace and the ease at this transition to a new way of life for me and my family. Eating healthy has never been easier and more fulfilling. I have lost a total of 31 pounds and over 17 inches. I have more energy than ever, I have noticed an improvement in my skin and I am just so happy to be free from the addiction to sugar and carbs. I am not focusing on the scale anymore and I am learning to enjoy life more as a result of this freedom. I am focusing more on wellness and health rather than weight and food. I feel like the Lord led me to this way of life and I am praying that I can eat this way the rest of my life.
I used to feel deprived, tired and hungry most of the time when I was watching my weight. I would lose the weight with enough determination, then when the holidays or a pregnancy came my way, I would find the pounds creeping back on. Since being on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, I lost weight even on vacationl. That was unheard of before THM. It was not unusual for me to gain five pounds while on a week long vacation. This is the freedom that THM brings. I can’t say enough about how blessed I feel to have found this plan that works for me.
We traveled to Washington, D.C. last week for the Teach Them Diligently Convention, where I was able to hear the authors of the book, Trim Healthy Mama and share with them my story in person. We were very encouraged by the sessions and I highly recommend the conference to homeschooling families. The focus of the conference is to equip and encourage families in discipleship. There is one more event scheduled this year in Dallas, Texas. The Trim Healthy Mamas will be there as well. There was also a THM meetup where ladies who have been following the plan were encouraged to share their stories. It was really neat to hear all the testimonies of ladies like myself who have been changed by healthy eating and freedom from fear. It was so special to be able to meet them in person and celebrate the journey. God is so good and I am rejoicing today in the blessings of good health.
