I lost weight 3 years ago the old fashioned way, counting calories on Sparkpeople. I craved the entire time, then gained it back and then some. May 2, 2015 I started Trim Healthy Mama. As of today, May 15, I've lost a few pounds. More importantly, I've lost my cravings - even when I taste carb & fat ridden foods.
-------------------------
Update on May 8, 2016 - I lost 18 pounds while following THM principles over several months, fell off the bandwagon, but only gained 3 pounds back. Not bad. I'm back on the THM plan and plan to keep going.
--------------------------

Other goals I want to do at a lower weight:
Hike the Blue Beaver Trail up Lookout Mountain.
Spend a night at the Hike-Inn.
Swim with the manatees in FL.
------------------
May 2019 - The weight I lost in 2016, I've gained back. I'm working on weight loss again, and I've lost 10 pounds over 3 months, 5 in March, none in April, 5 in May. I really think 3 to 5 pounds a month is realistic for me.

Oct. 2019 - I've lost 23 pounds since March, average loss is 3 pounds in a month. I try to walk 20 minutes a day, mostly I do. And I do not stay perfectly on my plan.

My eating plan: Using the Sparkpeople suggested diet for my age, height & weight. Most lunches are a Premier Shake with a dark chocolate bar of 150 calories in the afternoon. Mostly avoiding processed foods, but no banned foods.

Other Information:
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. - Calvin Coolidge

    Happy Friday! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Since it is the holiday weekend, I thought I’d keep the theme going - especially since most of us will be eating leftovers sometime this weekend!

    emoticon "Why didn't the cook season the Thanksgiving turkey?" "There was no thyme!"

    emoticon "What kind of noise does a limping turkey make?" "Wobble, wobble."

    emoticon "Why didn't the pilgrim want to make the bread?" "It's a crummy job."

    emoticon Q: Why were the cranberries red?
    A: They saw the turkey dressing.

    emoticon "Knock knock!"
    "Who's there?"
    "Tamara."
    "Tamara who?"
    "Tamara we'll eat all the leftovers!"

    emoticon "Knock knock!"
    "Who's there?" "
    Arthur."
    "Arthur who?"
    "Arthur any leftovers?"

    What’s the difference between in-laws and outlaws?
    Outlaws are wanted.

    Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Aahhh . . . yes, we’ve finally arrived at our favorite day of the week - Friday! Today’s jokes and cartoons are in honor of National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. Who knew there was actually a day set aside to tackle this maligned task! This ties in perfectly with our Sparking, and of course, cleaning out the ol’ frig is a great way to get ready, and make more room there for the big T-Day in just a couple of weeks!
    Time to get our “Friday Happy” on!

    I bought my daughter a refrigerator for her new kitchen remodel. You should have seen her face light up when she opened it!

    I had a rude awakening this morning. Apparently my freezer stopped working during the night, but it’s all just water under the fridge now.

    My grandfather made his fortune in the appliance business. He’s a fridge magnate.

    While I was walking through the kitchen I heard the faint chorus of the song Stayin’ Alive. It was just the chives talkin’.

    If you’re not supposed to eat at night, why is there a light in the refrigerator?

    Gotta go! My refrigerator’s been running, and I really need to catch it!
