Today is the day that I share what my awakening is all about.
This picture is from January 13, 2015. Please excuse the bathroom selfie, there were no toilets exposed in the taking of this photograph.
I didn't tell anyone outside of those living with me and my support group of my changes but I did tell myself that if I made it to the twenty pound mark I would write a blog post. I am almost one-third of the way to my goal and this has happened in just ten weeks.
And, here I am today. Twenty-one point eight pounds gone.
I will say that these jeans are too big but today is a day of school, cleaning, cooking and home so I threw on the old baggies to spend my day at home and then I realized I had made the goal weight for sharing my journey on the old blog here.
I have gone down one pant size and I no longer have to shop in a special section of the clothing departments.
What am I doing? Have you heard of Trim Healthy Mama? I heard of THM as soon as the book was published but not being a bandwagon jumper I looked at it and decided it was not for me (boy was I wrong). Fast forward to the end of December when I was looking on Pinterest and THM pins kept popping up. I decided to give online research one more go and I ordered my book that night. Little did I know that two other local friends were also discussing THM the same evening and a built in support system was immediately in place. Now I have three local THM buddies and a fourth beginning slowly and learning how to make this work for her.
My journey began on January 5, 2015.
I am not going to go over how THM works and researching online gives a glimpse of how this lifestyle works. If you need a change, buy the book. The book is definitely worth it. This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle and a way of life that is easy and enjoyable. I still eat pretty much whatever I want it is just what I eat when and with what that makes the difference. Oh, and I have dessert all.the.time.
I will make sure and get a better current picture soon and I will have a Resurrection Day picture to share I am sure, because I am going to need new clothes because nothing spring fits any more.
