I'm feeling quite lucky like a leprechaun today since I've finally reached a BIG goal in my weight loss saga. I'm now just over three months on Trim Healthy Mama and drum roll....
I am down about 9 pounds and quite a few inches (will measure and update shortly). I'm healthier, slimmer and feel really, really good - emotionally and physically. While 9 pounds doesn't sound that impressive overall (some ladies are dropping 20-30 pounds in three months on Trim Healthy Mama!!) for me, it's a huge victory since I've been struggling with this for quite some time.
As of March 2012, I'm down 20 pounds. I'm now currently 10 pounds away from my true pre-pregnancy weight (150-ish) and at my first goal of my pre-second child weight (160).
I have to admit it feels really good to be at this goal. This is a day I thought would never be here. Having really tried everything from Eat To Live, Weight Watchers, South Beach, Cinch, 21 Day Sugar Detox and a few other methods - Trim Healthy Mama is truly what finally has worked for me in these past 3+ years I've been struggling to lose weight.
And, since visuals are more powerful than words, I share with you below two pictures to show my progress.
Just to refresh your memory, I started Trim Healthy Mama on December 12, 2013 right after I ended my 21 Day Sugar Detox.
The image on the left was taken at our family photo shoot we had done literally FOUR days before I started THM. The right was taken just the other morning.
|March 2012 (180), February 2012 (170), February 2014 (163) and the other morning (160).|
Far left is when we were at Disney in March 2012, next is Disney end of January/early February 2013, next is February of this year and the last image is just the other morning. I can definitely see the weight loss in my face more in the last two pictures. While I'm holding children (trying to strategically block myself!) in the first two pictures, you can see I'm clearly larger in my face - and honestly just larger all over! And all I can think when I see the image to the far left is "Who is that???" Because it certainly doesn't look like "me" and at that point I didn't feel like myself either.
I have some toning to do and am currently working out 3-4 days a week now. Hopefully will have a true "after" picture to share shortly as I hopefully reach my goal weight!
