Goal Weight Day- with Trim Healthy Mama

Goal-Weight-before&after

This morning my scale landed on the magic number…my goal weight!  Celebrate with me!

The first thing you should know is that the November photo above is the *retouched* one that went on our cards this year.  That just wasn’t good enough for me…I asked the photographer for the raw files, and here they are…in all of my glory.  And just so you know, I had on spanks, and was holding my gut in like a champ for these.

Goal-Weight-A-unretouched

Note to self: hiking buttocks into a tree branch does *not* make it appear smaller.

And here is another one…Goal-Weight-before&after-un

Notice how the skirt is all jacked up around my hefty hindquarters in the before shot, and it’s literally dragging the ground in the after.  Stretchy skirts are awesome.

Admittedly, my goal weight is just an arbitrary number that I really just pulled out of the air early on.  I just gauged where I felt good when I was thinner, and when my clothes fit nicely.  It arrived quietly, and I almost let it go by without mentioning it.

It felt kind of…awkward to say, “I’ve arrived!” when I just feel pretty normal.  But then my friends fussed at me for not celebrating this accomplishment, and I decided that it may encourage some of you who are on your weight loss journey, as well as those who are working on restoring their health.  So here I am.

Now that I’m *at* goal weight, I still see tweaks and toning that needs to happen, and more healing that needs to happen.  But it will come with time as I keep plugging away at my overall health picture.  And I’m VERY happy with being where I am physically.

Update: Several people have asked me how tall I am.  I’m 5’7″, and I always weigh more than what people would think, because my upper half is on the small side, but I’ve got a naturally [very] muscular build under that stretchy skirt.  I’m not that hung up on numbers, so I chose a goal weight that represented what I knew was a happy place for my own body and build.  Oddly, the last time I was this weight, I wore a size larger than I do now.  I’ll take it.

In the mean time, I’m DELIGHTED with the lifestyle changes that I’ve learned from Trim Healthy Mama, and I have no desire to stop living this way.  Ever.  It’s not even TEMPTING to go celebrate by cracking open a Dr. Pepper and gorging on cake & naughty ice cream.  The me in November who was trying to roll out of her sweaty Spanx…the me that decided to wait until cookie and fudge season was over to start a new ‘diet’ would never have believed it.  Spanx are not awesome, by the way.

P1090881

I ate this to celebrate.  I get to eat DELICIOUS and REAL food *S* style Cheesecake Berry Crunch…and lose weight. Please pinch me, I think I’m dreaming.

I still almost don’t believe it!  There are SO many things I could tell you about Trim Healthy Mama…

  • how I get to enjoy PLENTY of healthy sweets
  • how at about 3 weeks of (over) thinking foods, it ‘clicked’ and is SO easy now…like brainless easy
  • how I no longer crave junk foods.  ever.  REALLY!!!
  • how I get to eat foods multiple times a day that are NORMAL foods…I get to eat what sounds good to me!
  • how THM has taught me to listen to my own body for what I need (energy or satiation) and has re-awakened ‘normal’ hunger and satiation signals that used to be SO screwed up.
  • how I eat more often now, and WAY more food than I did when I was holed up in my Spanx.  I’m SO not deprived in any way.  Food is fulfilling, filling, and guilt free.  I’m in a healthy relationship with it now!
  • how much I enjoy all the awesome ladies over on the Facebook Trim Healthy Mama group!
  • how I wake up without an alarm clock now when the sun comes up and am READY to get out of bed!
  • how I have enjoyed fitting into cute clothes again
  • how I can move around in my own skin without feeling short of breath, or cut in half  by my jeans
  • how I can run and play with my kids
  • how food is no longer associated with guilt
  • how my husband looks at me now
  • how my son has lost 15 pounds and found how to control his own blood sugar with healthy foods
  • how I cry when I’m happy and overwhelmed with gratitude
  • how very, very, very grateful I am to Pearl and Serene for writing this book

Comments

  1. Kelly Thomason says

    I have the book but would love to win this to pass it along to someone else so it can change their life, too. Congratulations on your weight loss and thanks so much for all your input in the THM group on Facebook. *high five*

  2. Lori Sims says

    Woo hoo! I’d love to pass this to a friend who doesn’t have the cash. I can’t loan mine out for more than a day! Congratulations – hope to join you soon:)

  3. Linda Phillips says

    I would give the book to my sister in Christ whom is checking out mine at the moment :)

  4. SuzanneK says

    I would love to win a copy for my sister in law. She wants one badly but without internet access she’s just trying to implement a few of the things I’ve talked about and it makes it hard. I keep hoping to get to a place where I’m comfortable enough with my knowledge to part with the book for awhile but it hasn’t happened yet and probably won’t for a long time. :)

  5. Tammy says

    Awesome! Your posts have been so helpful and encouraging. :) I have the ebook but would love a hard copy!

  6. JT says

    I don’t own a copy of the book and can’t get one just yet. I do read the facebook group everyday and I’m so inspired by everyone’s results. Such a good group of people! Thank you for this opportunity!

  7. says

    Congratulations on hitting your goal, and thank you for sharing your knowledge on the THM FB group. I have the ebook so I won’t enter the contest. :)

  8. Dawn Harding says

    I’d love to win a copy to give away to my friend, Randi, that I know would THRIVE doing THM :)

  9. Twisted Cinderella says

    You look wonderful! I have been longing to get a copy of THM. I would love to win a copy!

  10. Jessica Woulf says

    I have been wanting a copy of this book! I’ve just been waiting until we have a little extra money. You look great!

  11. Debbie Wharton Reeves says

    Hello! I have recently joined the FB page and have been reading all of the wonderful posts and seeing all of the delicious foods that you can eat. I have hypothyroidism and weight loss has been VERY difficult for me. I would love to try this, and would love a free book! You are so inspiring!! Pick me!!!

  12. Kelley S. says

    I would love to win a copy of this book! I belong to the Facebook THM group and see all the dramatic results. Pick me!

  13. Meggan Larson says

    I have my own copy but know quite a few people who would be so blessed by one of their own!

  14. Debbie says

    I love my THM eating plan. My sister is struggling with weight and health issues. She’s 15 years older than me, and I’d like for her to be around for years to come. She is looking for a good eating plan and I’ve been telling her about THM. I would love to surprise her with the book. She’s following my advice about a few things, but the book explains things so much better.

  15. Gail says

    I’ve been reading the comments and following the weight loss of all these lovely ladies and thinking this might be a good fit for our family.

  16. Melissa says

    I don’t need one, but my mom really wants one, but with her cancer, she is spending all her extra money on supplements. You look great, Gwen…such an inspiration! Thank you for all the work you do, here no your blog, and also over on the FB page.

  17. ginad says

    I would love to win a copy of this book! I’ve been watching the progress made by so many women and would love to be able to do the same! Thank you for this opportunity to win this wonderful book!

  18. LMcC says

    Congrats! I do not own a book, but have a friend who is a THM mama who highly recommends it. I’m just holding off the book and key ingredients due to finances now. I weigh what I did at end of my pregnancies (3 kids – oldest is now 9 – UGH!!). Sooo tired all the time. I hope to get the book someday & start feeling all that energy you all are talking about. God bless you!

  19. April B says

    I’ve been wanting to read this book because I’ve heard so much about it!

  20. Leanna Williams says

    I was given the book by my sister for my birthday…I would love to win one to either give to my mom or my best friend. Still learning the “the ropes” on it but weight is coming off. :-)

  21. Stephanie Wahab says

    I could really use a book as opposed to the digital copy I have (which makes it hard to re-look up information when I have questions), I would also love to be able to loan it out to friends and family who are interested and I can’t do that with a digital copy. I really believe several people I know would start eating this way if they could read the book and I can’t afford a hard copy to give or even loan them right now.

  22. Alea Stepanic says

    I also have the book but would LOVE to have one on hand to pass on to someone…I have been telling people bout the book and how excited I am about it and how much sense it makes and soooo wish I had one to give to those that I’ve been telling about. Congrats on reaching goal weight!!!! I can’t WAIT till that day for me….but it will be a LONG time coming. Thanks for your advice also…I’ve asked a lot of questions and they will probably keep coming as I am new and trying to understand it all still. Just started my official journey, with no plans on cheating or straying away from plan yesterday. Yay THM!!!!

  23. Luci Dutton says

    I would love to be able to bless someone with the book who couldn’t otherwise afford it. Thank you!

    • Its_Gwen says

      Luci, if you’d also like to contribute a book to the giveaway, please contact me and we’ll work out the details. :) Thank you!

      • Luci Dutton says

        Hi Gwen, I am not in a position to do that but would love to win so that I could. Sorry for the misunderstanding! Blessings to you, Luci

  24. Lisa B. says

    I would love to win a copy. I’ve been eyeing this book for a while now but haven’t bought a copy just yet.

  25. Amber W. says

    Congratulations Gwen! You look amazing! I started THM about halfway through this pregnancy, and this lifestyle is helping me to not use my pregnancy as an excuse to eat the junk I usually crave during pregnancy…I’ve only gained 15 lbs, I have had a pretty easy pregnancy compared to my others, and I only have a few weeks to go! I have never been able to lose all my weight from previous pregnancies, so I look forward to seeing what my body does on THM after the baby is born! My mom came to visit a few weeks ago, and was amazed at how fit I am this pregnancy. She keeps asking questions about the book…she’s overweight, pre-diabetic, and has has lots of health issues. I’d love to win THM for her!!!

  26. mominmaine says

    I would love a copy of this book I haven’t been able to afford it yet but I gave up sugar over a month ago! Now just waiting for more direction.

  27. JoshsRebekah Larson says

    I would really like a hard-copy of the book. Then I could have it on hand instead of trying to get my computer to find the right spot in the ebook every day!

  28. Tami says

    I would love to win a copy! Congratulations on your exciting news. You look fantastic!

  29. Randi Graves says

    Oh I could really use this book but can’t afford it at all. I’d love to win this! Thanks for doing this giveaway.

  30. Paula Hoy says

    I feel guilty for wanting the book as I have bought 4 already and given them away to people who need it more so than I. I do think it would be nice to read how to do THM properly. and the pass it on to another person who needs it, I would just like to be able to read it all the way through, get to know what to eat with out asking for help…..

  31. Rachel V. says

    I would LOVE to win this! After five kiddos and a gut with issues, I NEED this book!

  32. Andrea Catherine Cousino says

    Your story is very uplifting and inspirational. I would love to win a copy! At the time i am unable to afford the book due to our families strict budget!:)

  33. Katie Did says

    Congratulations, Gwen!! You look great. I am about to buy the book, but would love to see if I could win one, first. 😀

  34. Cathy E says

    I have (and use) a book but have a friend who wants it but can’t currently afford it that I would give it to if I win.

  35. charis says

    I would love the book to pass on to my sweet friend who cannot get her own right now. She has so many health issues plus weight I know she will benefit greatly! I cannot part with mine yet either! :) Congrats to you!

  36. Karen F. says

    I have lots of weight to lose, and it sounds very do-able. Would love to have a copy of the book.

  37. Laurel says

    Your THM story has inspired me and given me hope that THM might be the last weight loss plan I’ll ever need. Thank you! I’d love to own the book. You’re sweet to share the source that helped you reach your goal.

  38. Tiffani says

    Congratulations Gwen! I would love to get a copy of the book to be able to read through and try my hand at. Thank you for the offer!

  39. Rachel says

    I would love to win this book! My entire family could benefit from having the book! We have lots of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and are very overweight. God has really put this program on my heart as a way to health for my family.

  40. SBARTEL says

    I’d love a copy of this book for my mom. She asked me to borrow my copy but I just couldn’t part with it as I have just begun my own THM journey. Thanks so much for this giveaway but more importantly CONGRATULATIONS!

  41. Jayne says

    Love a copy of THM, not for me, I have it on my iPad, but for a friend who is facing many health problems caused by being overweight. Thanks Gwen. I LOVE reading your blog. Congratulations!!!

  42. Beverly says

    I’d love to win a copy. I’ve done well over the last week with just reading the FB thread, but can’t swing the book yet. I’d love to have the book and REALLY know what I’m doing.

  43. Carol Gates says

    Congratulations Gwen, so happy for you! I have a copy, but would live to win one for my parents who both have health issues I believe this would help heal. They don’t have internet, and mom is one who learns by reading, verbal just goes over her head…she’s interested though! :)

  44. Amanda Frankenberry says

    I would love to win a copy of the book. I have the book and have reached my goal weight. But there is a very dear women I have shared my story with who would love to read this book and change her life as well. She can not afford the book at this time and I wish I could afford to buy her one. I KNOW this book will change her life as it has mine! Way to go Gwen!! I have been following your story for months and today I celebrate with you!!! I to lost 35 pounds. We just discovered we are pregnant with baby #4 and I am excited to experience THM through pregnancy!!

  45. Jean Pirronelli Glavic says

    I’m entering to pass the book on to my friend Laura! She just can’t afford to buy one.

  46. Brenda Emmett says

    I would love a copy of this book! I have been looking for something to help me get back in shape and healthy, as well as something that will help me help my son lose some extra weight and become healthier. I am hoping this is what I have been looking for!

  47. Linda says

    I bought an e-book 5 weeks ago and love the whole concept. I have been bragging, bragging, bragging to friends about this, and would love my very best friend to get a real live copy of this. She has issues her naturapath has given up on, and her weight is up and down. I just cannot believe this method of eating wouldn’t benefit her health!

  48. Sarai B Carver says

    My Momma has been talking about your book and encouraging me to get it. I have just started this without the book she pretty much tells me what to eat and we wlive across the country! Id love a copy so I can continue on my 75 pound weight loss journey! and you look amazin’!

  49. Melody Meyer says

    While I would love a hard copy of the book, if I would win one, I would pass it on. I have a type 1 diabetic nephew who would seriously benefit from this book (although, I would start with giving it to his mom:) ) I have been slowly reading through my e-book and stalking the facebook pages and decided that today is my “day 1.” Congratulations on reaching your goal weight! This is so inspiring to me! It is posts like this helps me to believe in myself!

  50. Lanita says

    I want to win! I already started THM with a library borrowed book, but I would so love to have my own copy.

  51. Amy Marie says

    CONGRATULATIONS! YOU look GREAT, GWEN!! :) HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!!! :) I’m entering for my sister-in-law, who would LOVE to have this book but is unable to afford it right now! Thank you!

  52. KimM says

    I would love to have my own copy! You look awesome. Thanks for all you do for the group.

  53. Michele says

    Congrats! What a great way to start the Summer. Thanks for inspiring all of us :) Love that you are celebrating by having a book give-away. Thanks for the opportunity :) Sincerely, Michele

  54. Jessica says

    Though I have the book and am following the plan, I would love to bless a friend who is having many health struggles and I believe she needs to read THM!

  55. Sheila Danuser says

    Gwen, thanks so much for all the work you put in for us THM’s! Yes, I’d love a copy for my sister in love.

  56. Gina Smucker says

    I have thm book and i love it, but I would like to win this for my sister, she would love to have it…

  57. Delia Jones says

    I am entering for my mom. She has heard about THM from me, but finances have kept her from buying the book. We don’t live close by, so I can’t share mine with her.

  58. Terri Elling says

    You look terrific! I just ordered the book yesterday for myself, but would love to have an extra copy to lend out to friends.

  59. Melissa says

    I’m entering for a good friend who’s been wanting the book for months. You look great Gwen! Mel

  60. Wendy says

    I love THM and would love to have another copy of the book to pass along to friends who could really use the information.

  61. Carol says

    I would love a copy of the book so that I can start the THM plan. I have lately been very interested in the health of my family and am trying to change our eating habits for the better. I was hoping to try figuring it all out by reading about it on the FB group and that has helped me try some of the ideas before I jump in (thanks!), but I still cannot squeek together the money for a copy of the book, and would really like to jump in 100%! After 4 children, I also have a little extra padding I’m ready to let go of! :)

  62. Eszter Gergely says

    I have the e-book and I would like to have the hard copy, because I like real books, but I could not afford one :) Thank you

  63. rosar85 says

    Gwen, congratulations on reaching your goal; you look radiant! Thank you so much for the chance to win this book; being on a fixed income doesn’t leave room for any extras. I have learned so much from the wonderful content on your blog and the info you share on facebook. Thank you for all your hard work! God bless!

  64. Alice Batchelor says

    Gwen,
    I am so proud of you reaching that goal!! But more importantly you are teaching your children how to be healthy, what a gift. Something for a lifetime. I would love to win a copy of the book to pass along to a friend who desperately needs to lose weight. She is a young Mom really struggling…
    Thanks!

  65. creativeschmidt says

    I’d love to win!! I own the book {and love this healthy-eating lifestyle} but I still want to give a book to my Mom, and Sister, and Mother-in-Law, and best friend…you get the picture. :)

  70. Sherri M says

    I’d really love to win a copy of this book. I recently joined the Facebook group and see all of the amazing results and would like to try this. I need to lose a bunch of weight so I can feel better and get healthy!

  71. Sandi says

    thank you for sharing your journey. I am on that journey but do not have this book. I keep reading about it and am very curious to read it, thus why I would love to receive a copy. I am a grandmother now and the last year I have reflected many times about how much of my life is passed being over weight and missing out on things and people. Well this year in April I decided to stop putting it off and so far have lost 11 lbs. I am going to keep on keeping on and still enjoy life. Bless you and I can see the joy in your eyes in your recent pics. congratulations on changing your lifestyle.. I am going to do that too..

  72. Karolee says

    I would love to win the book, as I don’t know yet when I can squeeze it out of our budget but I’m anxious to get started, I have over 150 pounds to lose!

  73. Juleen says

    I would love to win a copy of the book! I have a 4 month old baby and work as well, and am struggling to maintain a healthy diet and a workout routine.

    You look amazing! Well done! I’d love to own a copy of the book. I just found your blog last week and love what I’m reading!

  75. Jewels says

    Dear Gwen, thanks very much for all the encouragement you kindly and generously share! You look wonderful! I’m so glad you’re feeling wonderful too! I have a copy, but know several dear ones that have weight and over-all serious health issues that I could gift the book to that would be really, truly blessed by it as well. Thanks for hosting a give-a-way for one! Please do enter me in! ;o)

  76. Tiarra Sue Yanalivich says

    What a great moment for you! I would love a copy. And congratulations!

  77. asmanthinkssoishe says

  78. Becky says

    I would love a copy of THM. Just recently found out about THM and am looking forward to the book.

  79. Erin Blodgett says

    I would love to win a copy of this book!! I have been wanting to purchase it for months but my hubby has been unemployed for the past 9 months and we just don’t have the funds. I’ve tried several diffrent diets and have lost but none of them show you how to eat so I gain all that hard lost weight back. Boo!!
    -Erin Blodgett

  80. Okaasan says

    Definitely need a copy of this book! :) Thanks for sharing your before and after pics!

  81. Melinda Brown says

    I desperately need a copy. I lost 70 pounds a few years ago and gained 100 back. I need a plan that will stand the test of time!

  82. staylor says

    I really need this book my husband wants me to help him and our family to eat this way. I am a Dr. Pepper addict I need help too.

  83. Marcy Bruce says

    I am very intrigued by this THM. A friend introduced me to it, & I’ve looked just at a few testimonies, recipes, & joined the FB group today. I only touched the book one time. I’m very hesitant to purchase anything more towards “weight loss,” as nothing before has “stuck” or helped past about 12 pounds. From juicing, point counting, treadmill purchase, gym memberships, yoga dvd’s, etc. I’m curious about how much a book really could help!?!?!? Please enter my name into your drawing. Thank you for the chance.

  84. Jennifer Bryant says

    I would definitely pass a copy onto a friend :) congrats hun!!!! good job!!!! jennifer Bryant

  85. Rachel Davis says

    Please enter me into the drawing! Thank you! <3 You look fabulous, by the way!!! (Before AND after!)

  86. Cassie F says

    I would love to have this copy of your book!!! I have SOO much weight to lose, but I know that w/ Christ all things are possible and I believe THM is the route I and my family should take!!! God bless you!!! :)

  87. Thrifty Frugal Mom says

    You look great!

    Would love to win as I’ve been wanting this book but not wanting to lay out that much money.

  88. Akiel says

    Wow! I only hope I can reach my goal weight someday… You are an inspiration!

  89. Amanda Martin Prosek says

    I’d love a copy of the book. With 3 kids and 2 of them with medical needs often I forget about taking care of myself. Good whole food sounds good to me!

  90. Melody Wright McMullen says

    My mother in law has introduced us to this book. She has lost 15 Lbs in 4 weeks and has been ordered by her doctor to stop her insulin. We are so impressed and proud of her that we want to start the journey with her. She has given me a copy of the quick start guide and a few recipes but not the book. My husband and I are both teachers so we plan to purchase the book at our next pay day, June 25. So yes, we would very much love to win a book.

    Congratulations on your journey and thank you for this group.

  91. S Donald says

    I have a friend using this and have been intrigued…. would love to have a copy to see if it’s something that can help my mother and I to get (and stay) healthy!

  92. Angela Cooney Farley says

    I am just learning about THM and would love to give this program a try. Your success story is very inspiring, and I’d love to be able to write a similar story for myself!

  93. Tanya Montminy Patterson says

    Congratulations Gwen, you are such an inspiration and you’ve poured your heart and soul into the facebook group. Thank you so very much for all that you have done and while I am new to THM (a month new) I am reaping the benefits like the rest. I already have a book of my own but if I were to win, I have a very special someone in mind that I would like to bless. Congrats again, you look FAB-U-LOUS and am sure you are feeling that way too 😀

  94. Diana Kapala says

    I have been dying to get THM for months but just haven’t been able to order it! I would be over-the-moon to win!

    Way to go on your goal weight!

  95. GinaLynne says

    I don’t have the book and what love to read it. While I know I could benefit from it, I’d love to win a copy for my sister, who is struggling after the birth of her third child. I know this book an change her life!

  96. claudia ellis says

    I’d absolutely love a copy of this book! I’ve been reading/hearing so
    much about TMH and follow on pinterest. I want to eat/cook healthy and
    cannot spend hours doing so as I work fulltime and do not get home until
    5 pm. On top of that we have to eat a somewhat restricted diet because
    of food allergies. Congratulations on your fabulouts weight loss goal, you look great!

  97. Brenda Aldridge says

    I would love a copy of the book. I would purchase it myself but my husband is on disability and his checks haven’t started up yet.I really need to lose at least 30 pounds and help get my husbands blood sugar level under control without medicine.

  98. Sarah says

    I would love to win a copy of the book! I keep hearing everyone talk about it, but it just isn’t in the budget now.

  99. says

    I’d love to win a copy of the book for my Mother in Law. She’s borrowing mine right now and I can’t wait to get it back! :)

  100. Mely says

    I would LOVE to win a copy of the book! I have had the book in my Amazon cart for months, but I haven’t taken the plunge. I am so scared it will just be another diet I will fail at. I have read all your wonderful posts and I am part of the group on Facebook. I am just terribly afraid I will have to explain to my husband why I spent $35 on another diet book and still wake up crying on Monday when I step on the scale.

  101. Janine says

    After having my 5th baby last December I have not been able to loose the weight. I have seen wonderful things about this book and would love to enter your giveaway. You look great!

  102. Breezie says

    Congratulations! Thanks for the giveaway! I have been wanting the THM book would love to have it! :)

  103. Michelle Albrecht says

    I’ve been watching everyone’s transformations and being a single Mom haven’t worked getting the book into my budget yet, but I will. If I win a copy, I’ll be sure the pass it along when I’m done! Your pics and story are both inspiring, congrats and thank you!

  104. Threesa Roseberry Sadler says

    I have never known how to eat right and I think this would be a great way to learn how to use food to actually lose weight and be healthy vs gaining weight and feeling yuck. I would be really appreciative of a copy of this book and I can’t wait to post my before and after right alongside yours!

  105. Samantha Seymour says

    I have been reading about Trim and healthy Mama for a few weeks now on here, FB, and Stacy makes Sense. I would love to give this a try. I was overweight before I had my first baby here in February and would love to get in better health for family and myself. I have read so much about this on the internet it really has me wanting to read and try THM :) I would love to win a copy!

  106. Shanna says

    I own the book, love it, and am working toward my goal weight. I am entering on behalf of a friend who cannot afford the book but really want to THM! Thank you for sharing on FB and here! Blessings to you!

  107. Kara Telenga says

    Congratulations on making your weight goal! And it sounds like you enjoyed the process! I have been eyeing this book for a couple months now…so curious if it would work for my problem area (tummy) after having 3 kids!

  108. Kristen B says

    Great job! I’d love a copy of this book to get me back on track after having 4 kids
    (twins included) in 3.5 years!

  109. Alicia Casalino says

    I’ve been trying THM with a book from the library. I’ve had it out twice now, (it has a waiting list so I can’t renew it.) I’d love to have my very own copy to mark in and keep forever :-)

  110. Michelle Marsh says

    I am going to be 54 in 2 days. I have been having hormonal challenges that have caused me to gain 20 pounds to the already 30 that I need to lose. I would really really love to be the winner of this book.

  111. Paige Ratliff says

    -I would love a copy of this book. I feel I’ve struggled for awhile with my weight and eatin right and I would really love to see what this book contains! I’m amazed by all the awesome results I’ve seen on the Facebook page!!

  112. youthfulone says

    I gave away my first copy of the book, and now I have two other friends I’d love to give a copy to.
    Congratulations!
    You are beautiful no matter what your weight. But I’m delighted to celebrate your accomplishment!

  113. Sara says

    Congratulations! I would love to win this book. I have gained about 30 pounds since we started homeschooling a few years ago (all the home baking, I guess!) and have been having such a difficult time losing it! Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

  114. Kari says

    You look great! Thanks for being so honest (& funny) & sharing your before pics! I’m waiting for my library to purchase this book & would love to own it!

  115. Tricia B says

  116. Carmen Snyder says

    So, I wrote this great comment and then it disappeared… story of my life! HahaI

    I need this so much. I just don’t even know where to begin or how to even come up with a healthy meal. I’m so tired, of waking up tired!
    (Not as well written as the first draft! :) )

  117. lesliefair says

    I would love a copy of the book, but we are dealing with the financial issues of replacing 2 cars… at the same time… and then still having to have work done on BOTH those cars… at the same time… GRRR Thank you for the giveaway!

  118. Murf says

    I would dearly love to have this book but as a single mom with extremely limited income, it is just not possible to buy one right now. It would be a dream come true if I could lose these extra 40 lbs! I know I would feel so much better!

  119. Vonnie says

    I would LOVE to win a copy of this book! I too have 35 pounds to get rid of…After 7 babies, my body has had it’s toll. Losing the last 35 pounds has been hard for me. I’ve done a detox, cleanse – watched what I’ve eaten, but now it’s time for something different and I’ve heard great things about this book. Congrats on your accomplishment and thanks for the giveaway! :-)

  120. Carr says

    Congratulations! Really been researching this out for my husband and myself, but can’t bring my self to spend the $39.00. Been trying to figure it out on my own through different blogs. I’d love to win it!

  121. Julie says

    I have (and love) the book and would LOVE to win one to pass along to my sister.

  125. Carlene Heidrick says

  133. Liz says

    Oh how I would LOVE a copy of this book…I have been trying to save up enough “extra money” to purchase it…after my eight baby I haven’t been able to even come CLOSE to my goal!! Hoping to join you on this joyous journey and stop looking in the mirror and wondering “who that is”!!!

  134. Tammy says

    I would love to try this book! It sounds like it is nutritionally sound and healthy! Thanks for the offer!

  135. RM says

    I would love to win this book, after I have my baby next month I’ll need to lose almost 80 pounds to reach my goal weight. That’s the most amount I’ve ever had to lose and I’m scared of such a large number. Scared I’ll cave in to the temptations for sweets and just overall eating too much. I’ve heard wonderful things about this book!

  136. mkc says

    congratulations. That is a huge accomplishment. I would be very excited to receive this book. I am in the same boat after a couple kids and think 35 pounds is my number too. I think our photos would be very similar. :) I am determined to do it now. Thanks for the inspiration.

  137. Julia says

    Hi Gwen! You look AMAZING!! I love this book, too, and have started on the plan :). I would love to win this for my cousin. I know she would love it!!

    ~Julia

  138. joyce says

  139. Jessica M says

    Congratulations, Gwen!!! I have a copy already on it’s way to me from the THM site, however, my mom, who has struggled with her weight all her life, could really use a copy. What a great idea to celebrate with a giveaway!

  140. Cathy Karges says

    Your pictures are wonderful and encouraging for me, I see myself in your old pictures would love to look like you do today!! Keep up the good work, would love to win the book.

    I would really love to have this book so I can reach my goal weight and help my daughter (17years old) with healthy eating habits before she heads off to college. Thank you for the opportunity!

  145. Heather Martin says

    First I would like to say congrats on your success!!! And for starting up this group!!! I would love to win the book, so that I can fully understand what S, E,…etc…are all about and hopefully hit my goal weight so I can be an active energetic mother to my two little blessings. Thanks for doing the give away and helping those find support this this site!

  146. Laurie says

    I’ve long thought of trying this way of eating, just lacked the funds to get the book myself. I’ve done two 60 day juice fasts and was successful at losing (and keeping off) 45 pounds. I, however, have twice that much to lose still. This sounds like just what I need to finally gain control and lose it all for GOOD! Thank you for the opportunity to win! :)

  147. Christina Martschinske Wood says

    I am VERY interested in this book..have seen it on a couple different blogs now ad would love to read it. I have been trying some Paleo eating for a few months now but it is not quite working for me or my family.

  148. Melissa Pallex says

    Congratulations!! I can’t wait until I’m at my goal weight, which is actually the same as your goal weight. I have a LONG, LONG way to go to get there, but seeing your pics and hearing your story inspires me!

  149. Kendra @ Living in the Shoe says

    Congratulations!! That is awesome! I’d love to win this since I am having baby number 6 within a month. :)

  150. Laura G. says

    Congratulations on your accomplishment. I’m due any day with baby # 2 and would love to win a copy of THM, especially after reading your and Stacy Makes Cents reviews.

  151. Tonya B. says

    Congratulations Gwen! I would absolutely love to have a copy of this book! I have hit an all time low where my weight and health are concerned. I am so upset with myself for letting myself get this way! I have been reading on the facebook page about this wonderful lifestyle change and I am so ready to get my life back! Thanks a bunch!

  152. Aimee says

    My sister recently introduced me to the whole concept behind THM. I, as of yet, have not grasped the when to eat what but would love a copy of the book to read and absorb! It’s something I would like to incorporate into my lifestyle.

  153. Janelle Evans-Mcleod says

    Would love a copy of your book! Maybe your book will help me to lose the weight and not give up so easily like I have on everything else!

  154. cheri says

    I have seen the recipes on fb and pinterest and am trying many of them, I am so excited about changing the health of my family and regaining my healthy weight. Feeling good to keep up with the kids. I can’t wait to have a copy so I can use it in the kitchen as my cookbook!

  155. Angela M says

    Congratulations Gwen! I already have the book, but I am getting ready to loan it out to a friend. I would love to win one for her instead. I don’t know how I would live without it LOL. Thanks for the giveaway!

  158. Sarah Dennis says

    I would LOVE the copy of THM!!! I have been battling with my health for two years now and have gained 50 pounds! I am determined to lose it. I have enjoyed following THM on facebook! :)

  159. El says

    This is so terribly exciting! I am so happy for you! You look amazing! I know i am using too many exclamation marks!! :) Don’t enter me in the giveaway, I have one, and want this to go to somebody who really needs it.

  160. Rebekka Weise says

    Being that I’m tipping the scales at a whopping 300 lbs and need a revamp to my nutritional lifestyle, I would love a copy of the book.

  161. Jessica says

    I would love a copy for my daughter- three babies in three years, a lot of weight gain. I’ve been telling her about this, but I can’t let go of my own copy!

  162. amy goodfellow says

    I would love a copy of your book! Congrats on reacing your goal weight day! Amy in Ca!

  163. Debbie B. says

    I would love to have a copy of this book. My daughter, April, told me about it and she absolutely loves it. I went through a costly (both financially and emotionally divorce) last year, lost a job I had for 18 years and moved from Michigan to Georgia away from all of my family and friends for a new beginning. I have put on 30 pounds since June of last year. I need all the help I can get. Thank you!

  164. Louise Morrison says

    Wow, well done! You look amazing! I would love to win a copy of the book – I have been desperate to order it for months now and have been lurking about on the groups but haven’t implemented anything yet.

  165. Cassi O. says

    I would love this book, I feel like I’ve been eating healthy but the weight is not coming off…I am sure it’s because of the way I am combining meals!

  166. Danielle Côté Brandon says

    I’d love a copy of the THM book. Baby #3 is due in 7 weeks and I’ve gained more than planned :( Would love to be able to have a plan all set to start once babe arrives.

  167. Katrina Sharrock Lucas says

    I love how active you are on the THM Facebook site! Your encouragement for others is unsurpassed. You may not know how much we all appreciate you, but let me be one of the thousands that you have helped to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart!

  168. Mel Lotti says

    Congratulations! I’m getting started. It’s a lot to take in, but I’m excited. I think this is the answer I’ve been praying for. Would love to pass one on to a friend!

  169. Mom of twins&more says

    I have heard so much about this and am so looking forward to actually having a book in my hands to try some of it myself. Thanks for this opportunity and for you blog that is so aspiring!

  170. Melissa Bull says

    Congrats! Hoping I win the book so I can find something that works with both DH and me both. He’s not one hundred percent liking the juicing thing…

  171. Melissa says

    I’d love a copy of this … my cousin recommended it and I just don’t have the money right now to buy it … BUT I SO NEED THIS*

  172. Tammi B. says

  173. Melissa Ford says

    I would love to win a copy of this book for my sister in law. She was diagnosed with diabetes earlier this year. She has done so well losing weight; I would love to see how much she could do with THM. I have lost 14 pounds in about 10 weeks. :) Very exciting. :)

  181. CJ Siege Nygaard says

    I’d love to win a copy for a group of single Mom’s that I’m a part of. I’d do a little loaning thing like we did with that organizing book years ago in the WTM group.

  182. snowflakesmj says

    I would love to have your book. I really need some help to get myself healthy. Your statement of “over-thinking food and then it clicked” really struck a chord with me.

  183. Jennie Walter says

    I have been praying for a copy of this book!!!! I am currently losing weight, but know that THM can help me.

  187. Suzanne says

    Your story is so inspiring! I’ve only recently heard about this book from a friend and have been amazed by all the success stories I am reading. I would LOVE to win a copy of this book and put it into action!

  193. Gwen Staples says

    Congrats! A friend of mine is enjoying eating again after finding THM. I can’t wait to start, too! A free book would be bonus!

  194. Barbara England says

  195. Kegina Sigsbee says

    I’d love to have this book..My dear friend told me about this book & said she likes it so much!! So I would love to try this.I have tried different things & don’t seem to work for me. Thank you:)

  196. Terry Malesky says

    Gwen,
    I just recently bought the book but I would love to have a copy to give away. I am a Volunteer Coordinator for Pregnancy Care Center in Springfield MO. We are a life affirming, not for profit who rely heavily on our volunteers. I have been sharing with some of the volunteers about my new book and they are very interested. I would love to have a drawing for the book at my 2nd Quarter Volunteer Birthday Celebration which will be the last week in June!! Thank you for all you do to encourage all of us, especially “newbies” like myself!!!
    Blessings,
    Terry

  197. Laura says

    You look great! Pick me! Pick me! :) I would love to own a copy of the book but money is tight since returning from the mission field. I’m hoping, hoping, hoping…

  198. Trina says

    I’d love a copy! I just started looking for ways to make a lifestyle change. I want to eat healthier, lose weight, and feel better for my children, not just myself. Your pictures have inspired me and I look forward to checking out your blog from the beginning!

  199. Rosanne Kampen Gingerich says

    I’ve heard a lot of great reviews about this book, have weight to loose and would really love to implement the healthy eating plan. Thank you.

  200. sheila crockett says

    I would love to win a copy of Trim Healthy Mama! If I don’t win, I hope to purchase one soon. I am inspired by what this book is doing for so many people. The facebook group seem so supportive of eachother, it’s awesome. I think it is just what so many people are looking for and need!!
    God bless and thank you!

  201. Katherine says

    I’d love to win a copy. I am muddling my way through and learning the ropes of THM (partly thanks to Gwen). I would love to win a copy of the book for my mom who could really benefit from the diabetes altering affects. You have done a fabulous job Gwen! I don’t really know you but I am so proud of you!

  202. Hannah Harken says

    I’d love to enter my mom into the drawing. She is the life of her husband and seven kids and I think the Thin Healthy Momma would be a blessings to her and help bring energy back into her life.

  203. Crystal says

    I would love to win. Thanks for the giveaway. You look beautiful!!!! Congratulations!

  204. Christina S says

    I would love to win this for my Mother (she doesn’t do give-a-ways much, the time she spends on the internet is pretty limited, plus I haven’t been able to give her a gift in years). My Mother has weight issues, I know she’d love to finally conquer-I’ve been curious if the THM book could help her but neither of us can afford it just yet. This seems like an excellent opportunity to win it for her and gift it to her as an early birthday present :) (provided I win it of course! If not I’ll just continue trying to save up money for it ^-^).

  205. Christy says

    I have a friend that I would love to buy a copy for but just haven’t been able to do it yet.

    Congrats! You look great!

  206. Holly Keeling says

    I have a copy, but would like to bless a friend who needs a health breakthrough and I know THM would help her!

  207. Jennifer Francis says

    I can’t afford to buy the book.. but I’m still inspired! A copy of the book would be great! 4 kids, fulltime job, and 60 lbs to lose :(

  208. SueAnnie says

    I would love to win this book! I’ve been checking it out for awhile but just don’t know if I can do it!

  209. Nicole M. says

    I have heard so much about THM and would love to win a copy of the book. Thanks for all the inspiring posts and the facebook page!

  210. Pat Baker says

    Soooo many want the book. I must admit I would love to have it too. I have been following on FB for about a month and the “diet” seems too good to be true. If I am the lucky winner I will post my success for all to see and help others to believe.

  211. Lori Ann Harsent says

    I would love to have a book. Thanks for being so real, Gwen… and how wonderful for your success.

  212. Janice says

    Congratulations, Gwen! You look lovely! :) I am entering on behalf of my mom. She is 67 years old, quite overweight and just plain unhealthy. She takes a dozen or so prescription drugs each day. We live over 300 miles apart, but I just spent the past week with her as we took an 800 mile road trip together to my grandmother’s funeral. My mom noticed my weight loss right away (40 pounds now). I had not seen her since before starting THM. She asked me lots of questions about the plan on our two day drive home. I sent her home with samples of all my THM food products and told her I would order the book for her. (I’ll wait now, till your giveaway is over.) If she wins it, then I’ll be able to buy one for my sister-in-law instead who also asked me how I was losing weight, and has struggled with hers for many years, as I used to (pre-THM). I want my mom to be healthy so badly. After just losing my grandmother, I now wonder how long I will have my mom. I am going to do all I can to help her get healthy.

  213. rebekah says

    I would like to win a free copy. I can’t afford a book, but I’ve been reading everything I can find about it on the internet. :) I have not been able to lose all my weight after the last few pregnancies. I’m at 176. 130 or less is a pretty good weight for me. I’ve had 11 pregnancies, ten children. My blood pressure is really high, has been since my last pregnancy, and I don’t want to start on medicine. I see a lot have entered so I know this will make the day for whoever gets picked!

  214. AngieK says

    I have the book and have been working on myself, I would love this for my 40ish sister – single mom, hard worker who never takes time to get herself healthy. She really is at a loss when it comes to getting herself trim and healthy. I think this book could inspire her as she has inspired so many others with her hard work ethic and compassion.

  215. Cara Young says

    I’ve been watching the Facebook page for awhile and trying to decide if I should get the book. Just not sure yet if its something I’d actually stick with or not. I guess mostly because I’m not sure I understand it. I’d love to win the book and try it, though.

  216. Erin says

    I would love to win this! Your post with pics inspired me, but what really got me is how great you’re feeling. Oh to wake up and be ready to start the day would be wonderful. :)

  217. Tracy Rose says

    Well done, you are an inspiration. I have the book and have been talking to my sister-in-law about it. She would love a copy but is short on money at the moment, it would be great to be able to bless her with one.

  218. Jennifer says

    That is so awesome! I would love a copy of this book … was researching it last night and came across your review of it. Sounds perfect for me, but dh balked at the price of “another fad diet book”. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  219. Heather says

    I am just now hearing about this book through some great friends who know that I’ve been struggling through this area in my life. Your journey is so encouraging and I love that you are not following the weird diet crazes. This morning I am encouraged. :) I sure hope to win a copy of your book.

  220. Dollhouse Lady says

    I would love a copy of your book. I struggle with up and down weight and my daughter recommended your book.

  221. Danielle says

    I bought the book via the Kindle on Mothers day. I would love a paper copy, I have a hard time using the eversion. My starting weight was 160 and after one week I was down to 155 and have kept it off. Waiting for more pounds to drop my week. I am a type 1 diabetic and this has helped my blood sugars greatly. I would love the book.

  222. Missy Jones Shaffer says

    I have several friends who are following this and have had successful outcomes. After recently being diagnosed with asthma and needing to get a grip on my health and weight problem I am ready to try this exciting program and would love a copy of this book.

    Congratulations on reaching your goal and to maintaining it!

  223. kendra says

    I have been following the stories of people using THM. I would love to check it out myself. I would love to feel good about myself again!
    Kendra

    I’d LOVE to win a copy of the book! Several of my friends have recommended it, but we just don’t have the extra $ right now for me to buy it. Since the birth of my 4 daughters, my weight has just been creeping up and up and up……I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been and I really don’t like myself much right now. Desperately in need of a jump start!!

    I own it, but I’d love to win it for a family (mother, daughter, granddaughter) who are all struggling to regulate their sugars and, as a result, their weight. I’ve almost bought the book for them, but if I were to win it, that would be awesome!

  226. Tami Waters says

    I’d love a copy of the book. A group of my friends have sung the praises. My son has high insulin and recently broke his leg. It’s an easy opportunity for him to gain weight, so now is the time for serious dietary changes. This looks like an insulin stabilizing, yet still delicious, way to go.

  227. Rachel L. Hardy says

    I just learned about this book last night over a naughty birthday dinner! I’ve tried it all and am getting nowhere. I’m so sick of being tired and unhappy. I would love to win this book!

    After weeks of soaking up THM info from several blogs and fb, I stumbled upon your THM quick start guide and decided that I CAN do it! Husband is on board too! I know so many people that would benefit from a copy of the book and can’t wait to share info!

  229. Michelle says

    I’m celebrating with you. Thanks for sharing this milestone with us and all you’ve learned about THM. I’m on this journey with you too, and it’s been wonderful, but honestly I have not had the time to try all the wonderful treats that you’ve been passing on. So, I can’t wait to try them this summer. I’m enjoying THM Tuesdays. I’d love to win a copy of THM for my Mom or sister. Thanks for the give-away.

  230. Kaira says

    Oh wow… lots of competition here. :) Gwen, you look great! Congrats. I’d love to win the book, but if not I’ll… eventually… get around to buying it. 😉

  231. Lyndsie says

    Oh, How I would love to win a copy of THM! To better my health and the health of my family. Bless you for blessing others through your blog. Such an encouragement to me. Thank You! :)

  232. Chelle Barnaby says

    I’d love to give this book to a special someone whose health is failing without THM.

  233. Amy Asher says

    I would love to win this book! I especially loved what you said about things “clicking” for you. Eating healthy seems so overwhelming and I feel like I don’t even know where to start! (Besides the obvious fruits, veggies, & lean proteins.) This sounds like the answer I am looking for!! All of your bullet points are what I want too! Thanks for doing this giveaway.

    We started a weight loss program at work but I’m kind of stuck and could really use some help on where to start. If I can find something that works for me, then maybe I can help my daughter who weighs over 300 lbs. I think we need a life style change and reading your success is inspiring me. I would LOVE a copy of this book. Thanks, Valerie Gibbs

    I’d love to win a copy of this book. My friend has been using this book and has lost 20 pounds. I need to do something because I feel like I’m stuck here at the weight I am.

  236. Gulwant Kaur says

    I live in Malaysia but have following the THM FB page and have been figuring out how to sign up and pay for a hardcopy of the book as I do not own a paypal account or a credit card. Would really appreciate a copy so that I can try out the plan and share the wonderful success of the THM lifestyle to my community here.

  237. RR says

    Congratulations on arriving at your goal weight! I have been hearing about this book, and would love to win it! Thank you for having this giveaway!

  238. ashleynicholen87 says

    You look great Gwen!! I would love to win this book since I’m borrowing a friends’s until i can buy my own copy! Blessings!!

  239. mchapman says

    I have the book but I would love to win a copy to give to my parents. My Dad is diabetic and my Mom struggles with post-meno weight.

  240. Rebekah says

    Wow! You look amazing! It’s even more amazing that you FEEL good too. That’s always been my problem with “dieting”–I’m ALWAYS hungry, never satisfied and then don’t really lose anyway. What’s the point of all that??
    I have been reading about THM today and am really inspired by your posts and pictures to take the leap and get this book. While I may go ahead and order a copy tonight, I’d love to win another copy to gift to a friend of mine who is so struggling physically, who I believe could really be helped by the principles of THM.
    I can’t wait to start my own THM journey and see how it helps my hubby and me with our health challenges.
    THANK YOU!!!

  241. Megan says

    I’ve been reading and reading out THM. I haven’t been able to committ as I don’t want to disappoint myself again, by not being successful at losing weight. I’m not a fad dieter, and really want a lifestyle change. I’d love to win a copy of this book and hopefully someday be an “after” Thanks for sharing your story! I love hearing everyone’s successes!

  242. Mom24jewels says

    Wow, what an inspiration. I would love to win this book and begin my journey. Thank you for not only offering the book but allowing us to read about your journey. Have a blessed day.

  243. Sue Seim says

    I enjoy your blog and your recipes very much. Two of my daughters-in-law and I are on the THM diet and really liking it. I am using a library copy of the book now and would really like my own copy.

  244. Kathryn says

    I’m not a mamma, but I’d love to own this book, as i am very interested in and with health and fitness! BUT! Come to think of it, MY mamma, who is struggling with weight loss would probably LOVE a copy! Therefore I enter! :-)

  245. Tanya Miles says

    I have been reading so many great things about this book. Congratulations on reaching your goal, and enjoying life so much more in the process!

  246. Robyn says

    I would love to win a copy of this book. I’m waiting for it at the library right now. My husband and I really need to start eating healthier, especially him, he is overweight and it’s not healthy for his heart. Thanks!!

  247. Andrea says

    The contest is over but I still thought I’d comment. I am also 5’7″ and have lost 35 lbs since starting in Jan. I set my goal weight at 147…The lowest I’ve been in my adult life was 135…that was for my wedding and I was thin thin thin. I also have a muscular build and have been working to build more muscle so I know at 147 I’ll be in 6/8 size clothes. I still have 20 lbs to go, and I’m hoping to get there by my birthday Aug 9th. I was such a sugar addict before, like you said above, I serious can’t believe how I don’t crave sugar. I had recees pb cups in my house and didn’t even want one. I don’t feel deprived. Anyway, it’s always interesting to see/meet people with about the same stats. Maybe it’s in your blogg somewhere, but what are you doing for exercise?

  248. says

    My husband called home on Monday and told me to order the book I had been talking so much about.bits a belated 45birthday gift for me. I sure am nervous and afraid I will fail again. I hope not.
