Trim Healthy Mama is my new way of eating!

Following a new program called Trim Healthy Mama! My friends are dropping 50 lbs and they are all over 60..now what program wouldn't be wonderful for us post menopausal women..we need the help with our slower metabolisms and other health issues. THM is for women of all ages!

Following a new program called Trim Healthy Mama! My friends are dropping 50 lbs and they are all over 60..now what program wouldn't be wonderful for us post menopausal women..we need the help with our slower metabolisms and other health issues. THM is for women of all ages!

Update 8/15/15: My weight is down to 187, slowly it is coming off. I have been faltering a little on my plan, too many dairy queens and fast food. Just need to plan some really great tasting meals and desserts. And make up my mind to replace dairy queen with perhaps the Fat Stripping Frappa - haven't make that one yet. So since May 1 lost 15.6 pounds (average 3 lbs a month). My cholesterol blood results came back with lower total cholesterol which is great news.
Update 7/19/15: Was totally off plan when I was on vacation and gained 3 lbs, but got right back on plan when I got home after a few struggles (hot fudge sundaes called my name), but THM is so easy and satisfying it really isn't that hard to get back on plan. I hate to be in the kitchen so at times hard, but anytime you eat healthy it requires one to be in the kitchen, the food has to get prepared by someone. I lost the 3 lbs in about a week, so I'm sure part of the gain was water weight. Whoaaa love THM! My insides feel great, no heartburn, no bloat....

Update 6/26/15: So finally reach 189, and feeling great...I have been hungry the last couple of days, but then so have my cats, maybe a full moon of something..made the shrinker today and sipped on it all afternoon..yummy....having pizza, my crust is all cheese!

Update 6/21/15: My current weight is 190, so looking forward to being in the 180's, it has been awhile. The stress over the past year caused me to eat a lot, and I went from 170 to 206, which is quit shocking. I also attributed my eating to stress which in part it was, but I also believe because I was eating the wrong things like chips, candy bars, pizza, subs, all the things that have a lot of carbs only added to my cravings for more junk food. On THM I can have such great desserts and I never ever feel deprived! Who wouldn't want cheese cake or chocolate peanut butter cake? I make skinny peanut butter cups, etc. and the meals are out of this world...so satisfying. Feeling great!

Update 6/11/15: My current weight is 192, albeit slow going I'm feeling great! One of my biggest health improvements is no more acid reflux during the night and I can feel the bloat leave my body. I do have to step up the water, seems I slack in that area, I can imagine how things will be if I could just get the water going. Water bottle here I come!

Update 5/22/15: Today my weigh in was 195, so not too shabby of a week..Food wise I have been having fun with experimenting, have not had any white stuff at all nor any wheat stuff since 5/1..well besides lavish bread. I have been making bread in a mug that doesn't have any wheat flour. But most important I have not binged at all since 5/1....that is a biggie for me...

Update 5/10/15: Wow I can't believe how emotionally and physically satisfied I have been since starting on 5/1. And not only that I have not binged! And I'm done to 198, 4 lbs might not seem like a lot but it takes me forever to lose weight when counting calories and watching fat, etc. Mostly because I end up binging because my body is just not nourished correctly. Overall things are progressing nicely.

Update 5/7/15: I'm on to a new adventure following "Trim Healthy Mama" concept of eating. Started 5/1 (weight 202.6). A few friends of mine over 60 have started this plan and have lost over 50 -lbs each, one lost 30 since Feb. With them giving me inspiration I'm giving it a try. The key for me is not to become obsessed with it as I think I might be a bit OCD.

Hey, what do you know, I actually watched my portion size today!!! Instead of: as many pinto beans, as I wanted...I had 1/2 cup, which was the serving size, (who knew)?, not me...!
Even, the 1/2 cup, was 110 calories, wow, no wonder, so that's progress...
YAY!!! emoticon

I think its being a closed group is the key. At least, I hope so! I'm in a closed group and depend on feeling my comments are just between us, if need be. But third party sources like the article can be moved around. Thanks for following up!
