Category: PCOS THM… so much hope

As I press on, on the THM (Trim Healthy Mama) journey, I have so much hope.   I have so much hope bcz I’m so not alone and I’m so not seeing this as a diet but a different way of approaching health and nutrition.  I say this bcz I’ve experienced so many diets in the past.  And the difference, for me, with Trim Healthy Mama (after this, THM), is that it’s not a limited time diet.  By this I mean, it’s not the lemonade-type diet or the military-type diet or the mama with a wayward child/depression diet or the zone-type diet or name another type of diet that’s generally undertaken for a limited period of time and eventually the old way of eating returns.  And so do the pounds.

I thought about writing one more post about flies. And then I decided, nah, the first was enough and two was too many. However, day three of my fly-capturing adventure went very well. I think our team won with an arsenal of fly-paper strips hanging in every room and the ever present shop vac: thwp, thewp, thwp. It looks like there are very few flies on the loose. But I wasn’t going to write about flies. But then, I didn’t want to write about school shootings -though the matter is grievous and the families need to be remembered. I didn’t want to spend effort talking about corrupt political campaigns, philandering politicians and other dirty politics, or even about a Nobel prize winner for his advancement of the ‘big-bang’ theory of the origin of the universe. And then, on the other hand, there are so many blogs and great websites to continue reading
