Trim Healthy Mama Week 8 in Review

It's been almost two months (the 15th will be officially two months) since I started Trim Healthy Mama (THM).  I think I've mentioned before that I really wish I would have started sooner.  I would be so much further along in my weight loss journey, but that's okay...I'm making progress now, and that's what really matters.  Here's what I ate during week 8...

I've mentioned many times that it's not about the scale, but about how you feel and inches lost as well.  I am very pleased with the amount of inches I've lost over the course of 8 weeks.  Even though I can't see a whole lot of difference in some areas, the numbers don't lie.  I am smaller than I was 8 weeks ago...even if it's not super noticeable.  As always, feel free to ask me any questions or post any comments.  I love hearing from you all.  If you're interested in learning more about THM, I'd love for you to click through my affiliate link to learn more.  You are not affected in any way, but it does offer me a small percentage for sharing my love for THM and their products.

Happy THMing friends.
