Trim Healthy Mama Week Four in Review

So, I've been eating the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) way for four weeks now.  Each week, it really does get easier and natural.  Now, maybe what makes it easier for me is that I'm okay not having tons of variety...you will notice that I'll eat the same thing for breakfast or lunch for several days in a row...this doesn't bother me.  It makes life easier because I already know what type of meal it is, and usually, the ingredients are prepped and ready to go.

Here's what I ate during week four...

Now, onto the scale results...I've been on plan for four weeks, and here's how it's gone in the weight loss department...
Week 1 loss:  5.2 lbs
Week 2 loss:  1.6 lbs
Week 3 loss:  0.4 lbs
Week 4 loss:  1.6 lbs
TOTAL weight loss so far:  8.8 lbs

Since it's been almost a month, I thought I'd give a report on how many inches I've lost.  This isn't totally accurate because we didn't take measurements until AFTER my first week of weight loss.  So, with that in mind, I've lost at least 5.5 inches.  I think people measure different body parts, so this is just based off what I chose to measure...I'm sure there's a more accurate way to report on this, but oh well.  LOL!

Like I've mentioned before, it's not just about the loss on the scale or the inches...it's about how you feel while making this lifestyle change.  I do feel better, and I've noticed other results as well.  If you feel led to give THM a try, I'd love it if you clicked through my affiliate link...it doesn't affect you or your purchase at all, but it does give me a little kickback for sharing my thoughts and enthusiasm regarding the plan.
