This THM weight loss before & after is probably the last one I’ll need to post, but I’m SO excited to post it. Last year this time, I was *just* getting my feet wet with the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, and I remember on the brand new Facebook group, a lady asked, “Is there anyone here who has actually been on this diet for a year or more and sustained weight loss?”
(Do you detect a tone? I thought I detected a tone.)
Or course, since the book had only been released in September the year before (a mere 6 months or so?), there wasn’t really a pool of experienced ladies at that time. Most of us were still savoring the delicious food, learning, and delighting in the lost pounds of our first few weeks.
But I couldn’t wait to get to be HERE. Where I can stand up and wave my hands and say, “ME!!! Me, me, me!”
Hey lady…I’ve been on Trim Healthy Mama for over a year now, and it took me about 6 months to lose 50 pounds. And I’ve LOVED every minute of it and am maintaining beautifully. And I DID eat chocolate cake for breakfast this morning. And tomorrow, I’m planning to have the chocolate gravy posted on the next page.
And that’s pretty much all I wanted to say today.
Except for that my jeans are so baggy here. They’re the same ‘stretch jeans’ that I’m stretched into in the before photo. But they’re hanging off of me like that time in Kindergarten that I wore my Mom’s red cable knit tights to school because I found them in my drawer, and Mom didn’t notice until she was picking me up that afternoon. And she said it looked like I had elephant legs. But that’s another story.
That day, I was embarrassed. Today, I’m pretty stoked to be wearing my big old baggy jeans! I’ve decided that when you can curtsy in your stretch jeans, that it’s time to retire them.
Here I am in my new size! I can pull the old size 16’s on and off OVER my new size 8 jeans without unbuttoning/unzipping them. Crazy.
So that’s my THM weight loss story, and I’m sticking to it.
