Trim Healthy Mama Weight Loss: My Top Tips to Help You Get Started!
Click here to watch Trim Healthy Mama Weight Loss + My Best Tips to Get Started! I also share quite a bit about doing Trim Healthy Mama while Breastfeeding since that’s my current experience in this new video.
My experience using Trim Healthy Mama
Over the past year I’ve shared my Trim Healthy Mama journey on Instagram. I’ve chatted it up with many moms about how to make the program work for them. If you follow the #TrimHeathlyMama hashtag on Instagram you’ll find so many helpful recipes and ideas.
Trim Healthy Mama is a system of eating that allows you to eat from all of the food groups while never spiking your blood sugar. When your blood sugar is spiked, in short, this causes weight gain. I go into it more in the video. There is also the Trim Healthy Mama FAQ page and even more resources are at the bottom of this post.
I started Trim Healthy Mama pretty reluctantly in February 2014 after a solid year with several failed dieting attempts that completely stalled out my metabolism from the dieting abuse. The final push I needed was the encouragement I found in my friend Lisa’s post on 10 Reasons to Avoid Trim Healthy Mama and her own Skeptical Venture into Trim Healthy Mama. Once on Trim Healthy Mama I quickly lost over 20 pounds before my pregnancy with Daniel. My only regret was waiting so long to get started!
Trim Healthy Mama Pregnancy
Daniel Joel was my first Trim Healthy Mama pregnancy and baby! Born 12-18-14 and weighing 9.14. You can read Daniel’s birth story here. This was also my first 100% natural birth experience.
During my pregnancy with Daniel I followed Trim Healthy Mama about 3/4 of the time. In the first trimester I’m not usually prone to morning sickness. With Daniel I was very queasy to begin with. I was encouraged in the Trim Healthy Mama Pregnant and Nursing Moms Facebook group to just take it meal-by-meal, day-by-day. The important thing was for me to eat something. There was a ton of grace there. I wasn’t fully on plan during those weeks but I just kept moving forward the best that I could.
By the 2nd trimester I felt that I could enjoy many of my favorite THM meals again. I enjoyed trying many of the recipes in the book during this season. I had lots of energy as well. By the end of my pregnancy I had gained about 30-lbs. Much to my delight my entire pregnancy weight gain of 30 .lbs was gone by my 2-weeks postpartum mark – yay!
Trim Healthy Mama while Breastfeeding
Now I’m exclusively breastfeeding baby Daniel and following the Trim Healthy Mama plan. He is gaining weight beautifully and at this point I’m maintaining my weight loss. I’m not seeing so much change on the scale numbers at the moment, but I am seeing inches coming off. As of this posting I’m 9-weeks postpartum and have come down from a size 16 pants to a size 12 with a belt!
In today’s YouTube Video I share My Best Tips on How to Get Started on Trim Healthy Mama and more on my THM journey over the past year. I chat about doing Trim Healthy Mama while pregnant and doing Trim Healthy Mama while Breastfeeding as well.
