Trim Healthy Mama Week 6 in Review

Wow, 6 weeks of eating the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) way...I didn't know if I'd keep up with it when I first started.  But -- I'm glad I have.  I'll admit, there are days when I think about eating off plan and just saying "whatever," but I really try not to do that.  Have I cheated?  Yes, I have.  But -- have I done anything I regretted while eating off plan?  No, not really because I haven't gorged on any off plan foods.  I may have snuck a French fry or two, or I may have eaten a slice of bread at a restaurant...but it's nothing compared to the way I ate prior to starting THM.  Plus, with THM, there's a saying..."you can always start again in three hours."  So, if you ever find yourself eating off plan, just remind yourself of that.  That's what make this so do-able...it's something you really can maintain for life and not feel deprived or cheated.

So, what did I eat during week 6...

Snack -- 000 peach yogurt w/1 tbsp chopped pecans (FP)
Supper -- 9 tbsp liquid egg whites (equivalent of 3 egg whites), mushrooms, onions, spinach, and 1 laughing cow white cheddar wedge scrambled and stuffed inside a Joseph's pita (FP)
Snack/Dessert -- luscious lemon cake (I just used egg whites) with macerated strawberries (FP)

Number of Each Meal Type
S -- 19

FP -- 2

Now, for the results on the scale...
Week 1 loss:  5.2 lbs
Week 2 loss:  1.6 lbs
Week 3 loss:  0.4 lbs
Week 4 loss:  1.6 lbs
Week 5 loss:  1.6 lbs
Week 6 loss:  1 lb
Total weight loss so far:  11.4 lbs

I've mentioned over and over about how it really isn't just about the scale.  I'll be the first to tell you that I DO love seeing the number on the scale go down.  But -- it's more about how you feel.  I've lost more inches, I know, but I won't report on that until the end of week 8.  So, just because you don't like the number on the scale, don't feel like it's time to throw in the towel and give up.  Keep at it and know that you're doing more than just losing pounds.  You are working at a healthier YOU, and that's what really matters.  

As always, if you want to learn more about Trim Healthy Mama, I'd love it if you clicked through my affiliate link.  It doesn't affect you at all, but it does give me a small kickback for sharing THM with you.  Feel free to comment with any questions, ask for recipes, or anything else.  I love to hear how other THMers are doing.
