Warning you might be stalled -

I am a turtle when it comes to loosing weight. I'm thrilled if I loose a pound in a month.  It's frustrating but I'm learning a lot about how my body works.

A couple of years ago, I started following the Trim Healthy Mama plan & this was a HUGE game changer for me. 

I had tried MANY other plans/diets and not had much success. 

So I was thrilled to find something that worked!

After many ups and downs in the last 12 months, I am stalled out with a few more pounds that I want to shed. 

I tried a scheduled free style plan in the early summer.  That helped by getting me focused on including different meal types every few days.  But it is time for a change.

Ways I'm trying to really shake up my metabolism and bring things to a new level.

  • I’m avoiding eating calorie dense foods & adding more veggies to each meal. 
  • I’m shooting for meals that are filling but allow my body to go for the stored energy(fat) that I’m carrying around. 
  • I’m drinking more healthy drinks and putting more movement in to my week.
