I had to change my shirt again because it was too big! See my Trim Healthy Mama Before & After Photos page to view all before and after photos of my THM journey.
WHAT I’M THINKING
I’ve been eating THM-style for 26 weeks! Half of a year! I originally committed to trying THM for a year to see if it really works. Um, yeah. It really works! In another 26 weeks, I WILL NOT be going back to my old ways! I’m anxiously awaiting being able to get blood test numbers in October. Though that does make be a bit nervous as I hear reports of people who have wildly improved numbers and then others who see no improvement or even worse numbers. It’s hard to believe I eat food this good and will have my numbers improve. I guess time will tell.
Just this past week I upped the ante and started using the Couch to 5k app to train to jog a 5k in September. In late February, I began weekly walks with my sister to get ready to walk a 5k. Very quickly, and surprisingly, we realized that walking 5k was not going to be a problem. I got to thinking that if it wasn’t really a challenge for me to walk one, I needed to “kick it up a notch.”
I also did an updated belly pic. It does appear to be shrinking, of course not as fast as I would like. There is about 15 pounds difference between the January and April photos. There haven’t been any hugely significant changes in my routine in these 3 months. In late February, I started walking once or twice a week to get ready for a 5k in June. I’m talking a 2-3 mile walk once a week and maybe another walk of 1-2 miles (but more often than not, that doesn’t happen). So, hang in there mamas with bellies! It will shrink!
