A Healthy Start To A New Year!

I have something exciting to share! So very exciting! I have lost my first 10 pounds of baby weight! My newborn son is now 10 weeks old and I can honestly say I feel amazing! I didn’t lose the weight this fast with my first and I worked twice as hard.

Below is a picture of me and my 10 month old son Eli.

I didn’t think it possible to lose weight faster than with my first. Everyone, and I mean everyone says it is harder to lose the weight and get in shape after your second child. That really had me scared because I worked so hard with my first. I didn’t think it could get much harder than that.

So what is my secret? I feel like a celebrity when I say that… My secret is really is no secret at all. Its just a new way to eat. You find and learn about foods and the basics of how they effect your body. It might sound like a college course but its not. Its so much simpler than that.

I now follow the guidelines of Trim Healthy Mama. This is a practical approach to eating well and healing you body with the correct kinds of food. You learn a lot in little time and applying it to your everyday life is really quite simple. There is a lot to learn but once you get the basics down it truly does become second nature.

I feel amazing and the fact that I can eat chocolate and bacon while continuing to lose weight is a blessing! I love me some chocolate and bacon! Not together of course 😉

I am not trying to sell you on Trim Healthy Mama but if you are interested you can easily follow them on their Facebook page. I am sharing this with you because I am so excited to have the first 10 pounds gone! I have only been eating this way for six weeks. I cant wait to see what will happen in the next six!

It is January and my goal is to be back in shape and down to my pre-pregnancy weight by summer. I thought it would be near the end of the year to reach my fitness and weight goals but I don’t think it will take me that long on this new plan.

Losing weight and feeling full and healthy at the same time is a miracle! I honestly feel like Trim Healthy Mama is a gift from God that came at just the right time. I don’t have to kill myself to lose weight and I no longer have to starve myself either. The wonderful thing is my family can easily eat and enjoy the meals I make as well. No more making a dinner for my family and another for me. We can eat happily together.

I am very excited for this new chapter in my life. I strive to eat healthy and now that I know how and what foods are good, I can do just that. I will be able to teach my sons to eat right and they will be able to apply the Trim Healthy Mama principles to their lives as well.

Health, especially now days, is so important! If your healthy you can fight sickness on your own instead of having to get drugs from the doctor. You feel amazing and yourself esteem sky rockets. The list to living a healthy life is endless! I only want the best for my family so here is to a healthy start to our new year!
