Are you stuck?  Are you stalling?  (This post is teetering THMers) Are you wanting to give up thinking you’ll ever get back on track Trim Healthy Mama stlye?  Maybe you have used the Trim Healthy Mama plan  with great-great results — weightloss, strength, energy, and confidence.  Yep, me, too.  Maybe you drifted away and gained back ten of the many more pounds you lost.  Yep, me, too.  Maybe you’ve tried to get back on track dozens of times.  Yep, me, too.  Maybe you’ve read or followed Sheri Graham, Gwen’s Nest, the THM books, THM websites and/or all sorts of Pinterest THM linked photos, tips and tricks.  Yep, me, too. So what are we waiting for?  What are we doing, anyway? I don’t know… I don’t know what it takes to get in that THM zone where you won’t, can’t, don’t want to: veer off plan.  I know that when I continue reading

It’s a beautiful day here!  Sunshine always seems to change my outlook — sort of, no matter what I’ve got to do, if the day’s a sunny one, generally, my attitude is sunny, too!  It’s taken me all these months of ‘working at’ the Trim Healthy Mama plan to get confident enough to begin sharing some of the different recipes or how I’ve learned to use the different recipes in the book — but every day I learn something new!  Ever a “free-styler” I have to really work at following the recipes.  But I’ve come to see and really appreciate the beauty of the THM plan is that once you have the basic understanding of meal guidelines, you can adapt the plan to your personal tastes, etc — and the recipes can be tweaked to fit your personal THM-style.  I have begun to call THM a method rather than a continue reading

Category: THM style Recipes THM = preparedness; sincerely.

NEW!  TrimHealthyMama Online Store Many women are enjoying great success following the Trim Healthy Mama book & eating style or plan.  But many women aren’t.  I notice this many times as I read the different posts on the Facebook THM group “encouragement page” [my description] and the number of comments  that are either negative or reflect a lack of being able to stick with the THM meal plans.  Many women are simply feeling defeated as they try to “stay on plan.” I don’t know why this is, exactly, but I think it has a lot to do with the proliferation of diets, programs and diet foods many women have tried (and failed) or have tried with  some success but as soon as the diet was ‘over’ or abandoned, the weightloss was erased and the weight increased.  Again.  There’s some strange psychological phenomenon that seems to occur with weightloss — especially continue reading

Category: THM style Recipes the comforting hedge

Four months ago I began the THM journey and what amazes me is how simple it’s been to stay the course with no intention or temptation to quit or get it over with.   I’ve never stayed with a plan in my life—but that’s not to say I’ve not tried a whole bunch of plans, diet-shakes, crash diets — only sticking with them for a few days or even a few weeks but always going back to the whatever, whenever way of eating.  The THM plan is so simple… the freedom is incredible.  There is so much freedom — but that freedom is totally NOT a whatever-whenever way of eating.  If it were, it would be the “fat, sick mama” diet… that’s pretty much where many of us, to one degree or another, have come from—and isn’t that what we never want to be again?!?! This is the freedom I mean: continue reading

Category: THM style Recipes homemade almond milk

I want to share a really simple, delicious and inexpensive alternative to “store-bought” almond milk.  I hope you try it and enjoy it.  I’ve made this twice now and am really thankful for it! You’ll find a number of recipes in the Trim Healthy Mama book calling for almond milk.  I found it to be pretty expensive at the grocery store — plus, from time to time I haven’t been able to get to the store, so this method is a nice alternative for me. I fill a quart mason jar about 1/3 full of raw almonds and then I fill to the top with water.  I let this stand over night and pour off the water in the morning–refilling with fresh water.  Before bedtime, I pour off that water and refill with fresh.  The following morning, I pour off the water and put 1/2 of the soaked almonds and continue reading
