I set some monthly goals for myself when I started the Trim Healthy Mama plan in the middle of October. I promised myself they were just something to work toward and it was ok if I didn’t meet each one. I did well November 15 and December 15, but then all our food holidays were upon us!!!! I didn’t meet my January 15 goal, but I MAY come close to meeting my January goal in February and the next one soon after.
I was initially disappointed that I didn’t continue to lose weight during the holidays, but then I thought about it. I wasn’t 100% eating “on plan” but most importantly…. I wasn’t gaining! I enjoyed all of our Christmas traditions until ALL the leftovers were gone! Then it was New Years. I only stretched that one for 2 days instead of almost a week.
I have learned that I need to follow the plan 100%. I need to have lots of good “S” meals. I can’t have too much cheese or I won’t lose any weight. I overdo good carbs on “e” meals, so I have to be careful.
My absolute fav is the Frappe! This has satisfied all my cravings for sweets and is easy for quick, on the go meals. Once I added flavored extracts my life changed! I can have the best flavors without all the calories! Here’s some combos we’ve done: dreamsicle, root beer float, chocolate covered cherry, chocolate banana, strawberry banana and lots of varieties of caramel!!
- one cup almond milk
- one scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder
- coconut oil ( a little bit)
- 3-4 Truvia packets
- enough ice to make it thick
I haven’t shared too many pics or any numbers yet. I don’t want that much pressure! Lol! But I will say that I have one more pound to lose and I’ll be 20 pounds lighter than I was last year!!!! I haven’t seen this weight/size since before 1999! That was quite a few kids ago.
