This month I celebrate my 5th year on Trim Healthy Mama.

Here are a few things I have learned along the way . . .

* This truly becomes a lifestyle. I don’t have to think about it.

* I lost all my weight, 40 pounds, in 6 months using only three new ingredients (truvia-that’s what was available, coconut oil & almond flour). This plan can be done with no special ingredients. I do indulge in the NSV’s now.

* I have more energy in my forties than I did in my twenties.

* My entire family enjoys eating THM. My husband jumped on board and lost 60 pounds after he watched me get healthy. He’s a huge fan of THM.

* My grocery bill went down after my entire family started eating the THM way. I have 5 kids and three of them are teenagers.

* When you gain health, the trim comes . . . it’s part of the package.

* I won’t ever go back . . . THM is a beautiful thing!
