I ordered the THM PDF for my Kindle July 10, 2014 & started the eating plan the very next day. So far, I have lost at least 20 lbs. I am loving the diet & the recipes. Thank you for following God's leading & developing this eating plan & sharing it with us all.

hoagie, if you go into a topic area on the upper right hand side there is a create thread. You have to be on the main page of the area and not on a topic already created or it will say reply in that space instead Let me know if I can help further, this is how to do it on a PC I am guessing mobile would be similar.

Hi, I'm new to Trim Healthy Mama. I have been fighting my weight the last 4 years when I lost all of my baby weight thu Weight watchers ( my baby was 13 at the time) I have almost gained it all back! So... I am looking for a new plan, way of life and my friend is having success and recommended the book to me. I purchased the book and the ebook. I am ready to start but havent even made it past the introductions in the book. Do I need to read the whole thing before I can start or do some of the chapters speak directly to the program and the way to do it?
Hi I'm new to this Forum and Facebook and THM! I've read the book and am slowly starting by coordinating S and E meals from ingredients we already have. I'm anxious to get in to full swing so I'll be browsing and gleaning knowledge. It's great to have a place where there is positive feedback. Have a great day everybody.

I'm new and thought I'd introduce myself. 2 weeks ago I went to the doctor to refill my asthma prescription. After weighing in at 220 (the highest weight I've ever been) I had him check if maybe my thyroid was out of whack. No, it wasn't. I have nothing to blame for my weight gain except for the fact that I stopped exercising for the summer (lack of time!) and I was eating horribly for the entire time my kids were out of school. For 3 months I ate fast food and pizza and drank beer and cocktails. I let myself go. This put me in a funk, understandably.
I've been watching my friend lose over 100 lbs on her year long journey-- and she looks smoking hot. I have spent that same year running, working my butt off, failing, drowning my misery/depression in alcohol and fattening foods, and generally doing it all wrong. I was feeling so hopeless, fat, and desperate when she posted another amazing photo on facebook. That was the proverbial straw. I ordered the BIG book right then and there and went grocery shopping for the basics--things I saw in the online recipes, just to get me started.
That was one week ago. Monday I ate what I knew from online and started waking up at 5 again (like I used to!) to walk/run a mile and workout. I started eating the S meals and threw in a E meal yesterday. Even went out to eat last night to my favorite BBQ place and ENJOYED a GIANT salad with chicken, ranch, broccoli, cottage cheese, and onions. NO GUILT and on plan! I can't believe I overcame the cravings for their fried okra, ribs, and texas toast. It didn't even bother me to sit next to my family happily eating the foods I used to love. It was empowering!
Also the sugar addiction, I thought that one was going to be impossible to break. Turns out I like stevia. Huh.
I did have a glass of wine last night (5 oz cab sav! NOT the whole bottle!) and I feel like the road to addiction I was on has been turned around. There have been times I Felt like maybe I was heading into alcoholism. NO MORE. I enjoyed the wine not to get drunk or sleep, because I am sleeping JUST FINE now....it was simply because I wanted to enjoy a glass of wine.
This is just my first week and I can see how this MIGHT be beginners' luck. But it's entirely possible my "addiction" is a different kind now! The type that loves and enjoys a healthier lifestyle and a trimmer waistline. I know I haven't necessarily LOST anything yet but I am thankful and hopeful that the changes are coming. I am journaling all my food and drinking a gallon of water per day. I feel amazing!
Thank you, thank you, Pearl and Serene, for this book! I KNOW I can do this!
msjongg: Just wondering... Are rice noodles on plan?

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

queen: Got a notice that the THM website is having a big cyber-Monday sale and are offering a couple new items. They have also introduced flat rate shipping. Time to stock up on that Gentle Sweet.

mamaj123: what supplements are recommended on plan? I believe they talk about it in the original book, but I don't have mine right now

marmee: Sorry to be such an... Older woman but I'm not abl to figure out how to use the forum. I have been able to read a few posts.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.
Apr 5, 2017 16:30:19 GMT -5
queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

auntchocolate: I have a question i am still confused about crossover meals how exactly do i incorporate them and how often ?

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
