I will be celebrating my 2 year Trimmiversary in a few weeks. I am posting early since Thanksgiving is around the corner and I’m very Thankful the Lord led me to this plan.

On December 10, 2015, I saw myself in the before photo and wondered what I had done to myself. I was an exhausted wife and mother of 3, working full time. I thought I knew how to eat, but when I read the first Trim Healthy Mama book, it challenged everything I thought I knew about healthy eating.

I tried it, skeptically at first, because I saw all the wonderful testimonies in the forums and the spectacular results that all you wonderful ladies were posting. The pounds and inches started coming off, albeit, very slowly.

I started out at 167 lbs. I’m 5′ 5.5″. By the end of 2016, I was down to 132 lbs. I went from a size 12/14 to a size 4/6. I worked out faithfully 5 days a week the first year.

Enter year 2, things at work went crazy, my 3 kids were in various activities, I had to get a certification at work, my husband started dealing with anxiety, I was working out less and less. I decided that even if I couldn’t work out, I was still going to eat right, the THM way. I fluctuate 4 pounds over my weight of 132 lbs. even not working out. My hair grows like crazy, my skin looks better than it ever did. I feel free that I can eat healthy, workout or not, and still maintain my weight loss.

Ladies, life happens. By the way, when my husband saw what I had achieved, he asked me to help him. He is the pickiest eater you will ever meet in your life, but so far, using the THM principles he has lost 56 pounds and counting. When I first started, I felt completely overwhelmed and like I would never reach my goal. I admit, it took longer than I wanted, but it happened and I’m so glad I started! I am now 41 years young and feel better than I did in my 20s. You can do this ladies, you are worth it!
