By the book 'beginner guide'! UPDATED!
ALSO KNOWN AS:
Yes... "Robot Mode"... I went there!
As a successful Trim Healthy Mama and Admin on the official facebook groups, I am desperate (DESPERATE!) to share with you how easy THM really is – and following a methodical, one-foot-in-front-of-the-other, “robot mode” approach is the easiest way to achieve this success!
If you are:
Take a deep breath, exhale, then relax – because you are over-thinking!
I have been where you are now, as have thousands of others. It is easy to “freeze up” when we feel overwhelmed – and that first step almost always feels like a “doozy”, but your dreams will never become reality unless you brave that first step!
Rest-assured, you do not need to fully “get” THM to begin a successful journey! In fact, you can learn THM simply by doing – We retain information more readily when utilizing all our senses!
Simplicity lends confidence to our step. No wild shenanigans. No fanfare.
METHODICAL PLANNING = SUCCESS
You do not have to be ultra-organized, or spend days preparing your menu. Do not get caught up in complex recipes or silly distractions.
TODAY YOU WILL PLAN YOUR FIRST 3 DAYS
Plan ahead for a "sipper" drink or two, to sip on each day. Good Girl Moonshine OR The Shrinker are great choices, but there are many more to choose from!
You may have noticed my emphasis on "EASY". This of utmost importance right now, as it leaves NO room for excuse. You barely have to work at this at all. You can't be hungry because you have plenty of food; “Emotional-eating" is covered as well, because you have something in your hands, or nearby, all day long.
Do this for (3) days, then you will change things up with some delicious, energizing meals! You will be ready for these wonderful, healthy carbs!
DAYS 4 & 5
Don't think about it.
Don't stress about.
Don't make it complicated.
Don't put it off until next week...
Just. Do. It.
DAYS 6 - 10
YOU WILL HAVE "OFF" MEALS
This is to be expected. You will simply move forward, with your next meal. This is not about one meal, one day, or one week. It is about making a healthy lifestyle change, for the better.
YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY TO A TRIMMER, HEALTHIER YOU
Take a few moments each day to reflect upon your goals... While this is not a race, you are “in it to WIN", and you will plan for success... and you will follow your plan.
Because... YOU ARE IN ROBOT MODE and you will not be swayed from your course.
READY TO BEGIN YOUR "TRIM HEALTHY JOURNEY?"
Do you like: Steak? Soufflés? Chili? Lasagna? Chile Relleno? Bacon Cheeseburgers? Pizza? Ice Cream? Whipped cream? Chocolate? Cheesecake? Muffins? Cake? Cookies?
Because my husband and I have lost over 80 pounds eating these and much, much more! Having, personally, spent well-over 20 years overweight or obese, Trim Healthy Mama turned my life around! It started with one, small, tentative decision: I bought the book, "Trim Healthy Mama"... and then I read it... and the rest is history!
Not a "mama"? That is ok! In spite of the name, this plan works for whole families!
My "Robot Mode", step-by-step guide - which you have read above - will walk you through the Trim Healthy Mama book with ease.
UPDATE! Since I started my THM Journey, great things have happened! THM has come out with a simplified book set - You now have a choice of the original 600+ page book, or the simplified Trim Healthy Mama Plan & Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook! The original book contains over 200 pages of recipes, and the new Cookbook contains over 350 new recipes! I love all 3 books!
What are you waiting for?!
For those who would prefer... there is another INCREDIBLE option which wasn't available when I first started THM! Trim Healthy Mama has a special membership site, complete with a state-of-the-art drag and drop menu planner, shopping list generator, thousands of recipes, a private forum, research materials, and more! Check it out!
Precision-run households may find my title, "RunAmok Mama" to feel a tad alarming, so I'd like to offer a quick assurance that my life is more an exercise of controlled chaos than sheer pandemonium!
