“I’ve lost 5 pounds so far! I’m so glad that the jeans I recently bought were only $1 each (thrift store) because I think I’ll need to size down soon!
“I can fit three fingers inside my waistband of my jeans, and DH just texted me that his tool belt at work is sliding off. Yippee!!! ”
“I just want to say how thankful I am for this group & this challenge. Back in 2013, I started Trim Healthy Mama & lost 30lbs in 6 months. I maintained that until I got pregnant with my last baby. I kept up with it about 50% throughout that pregnancy & was down to 5lbs away from where I started when she was born in July 2014. Life happened & I slowly gained weight. 2016 was awful & I gained a lot. I tried to go 100% back to THM, but I never lost more than 2lbs. I knew how to follow that plan, I was successful before, but it just wasn’t working this time.
Fast forward to Angela’s email about this challenge. At first I was just like eh, not going to work for me. A few days or so later, I see about it again & something nudged me to give it a try. Here we are 5? weeks later & I’ve already lost 9.5 lbs! I’m not craving any junk, I’m not able to overindulge even if I try, & I’m regularly exercising. I have so much more energy & feel great.
Thank you Angela for starting this challenge & thank you everyone in this group for being so supportive
“I was just sitting here thinking how I KNOW (not think, not hope, but know!) I’m going to be successful this week in my eating. Having it all fixed in the fridge is so liberating. I know exactly what to have when I feel hungry…and it’s all yummy so it’s not like I’ll be suffering through anything or feeling deprived. And best yet, I’m not obsessing about it – bit counting anything, tracking anything 2 seconds after I put a bite in my mouth, or trying to think of what I can eat next that won’t ruin my allotted calories or points for the day. It’s.Just.Done. I am relaxed and at ease and confident and looking forward to the week ahead. Thank you, thank you. This is exactly what I needed."
