“I am so grateful to have finally found something that works, is healthy and tasty. For most of my life, I struggled with self-esteem issues, eating disorders, and depression regarding my body size. Following the births of my first three children, I semi-easily lost the pregnancy weight. After my fifth baby, I still couldn’t lose the extra weight. In addition, my body seemed determined to hold on to another 7 pounds.
I tried the traditional methods of calorie intake vs exercise. The only result was my milk supply dropped. I wasn’t going to jeopardize my baby’s food just to try to lose weight. And with all my work, I still didn’t lose any weight. Frustrated, I basically accepted that maybe the fifth pregnancy in six years did me in weight wise.
I stumbled on a blog later in June talking about THM and was intrigued but skeptical. How could it be that simple? I started researching, reading lots of testimonies, then finally deciding that the best way to see was to just try. So I bought the ebook.
That was June 27, 22 pounds ago, and over 20 inches ago. I dropped from a tight size ten to a loose size six. My goal was my wedding weight. That was five pounds ago and I am still losing.
I honestly never thought it would work. Not for me. And the best part, beyond the weight loss, my milk supply is great! My 13 month old is still solidly nursing. I feel better, have more energy, sleep deeper, and no longer crave sweets. I am so thankful that God provided when I had given up. I look forward to continuing my new habits into subsequent pregnancies and beyond. Thank you so much Pearl and Serene for an amazing book.” –Heather
“I have always struggled with my weight. I was a serious calorie counter and would lose weight, only to gain it back when I got tired of being hungry all of the time from such a low daily calorie allowance. I would stall (before getting to goal weight) and then gain it all (plus some) back! This has gone on for years, and through 3 pregnancies.
I started my THM journey at the end of March 2013, only 13 lbs down from my heaviest weight ever. I struggled at first with not counting calories but then finally relinquished that control and began to enjoy the freedom that THM gives, a freedom that I have never known before. The weight started steadily coming off and I begin to regain the energy I once had, that I really thought was gone forever. My clothes started fitting better and I just felt better in general.
I don’t have to walk around hungry all of the time, starving myself… AND I get to eat delicious, nutritious food! I never feel deprived and look forward to each meal.
Today, 5 months after beginning my journey, I am 30 lbs down from when I started (43 down from my heaviest) and have dropped 3 dress sizes. But the difference this time is that it is gone for good! I can honestly say that I now know how to properly fuel my body for optimum health. It has been an amazing journey. I’m not through yet, though very close to goal weight.
I am so thankful for THM and for what God is doing through these amazing women. I haven’t been this size or felt this good since before I got married over 11 years ago. I am happy with myself again and know this is something I can continue forever. It is a way of life, and I couldn’t be more excited! I seriously just want to tell the world about this amazing plan and what it can do to change their lives. I have told SO many people about THM! What I once thought was impossible is now my reality. You can do this too!” –Tammy
“I have now lost 40 kilos (88 pounds) on your eating plan. I was under dieticians and more specialists than you’ve had hot dinners, trying to work out why I was so sick. Food was my enemy and I had come to a point where I did not want to eat anymore. Yet the weight went on and on and on and my health declined. I was dying.
It was NOT until I changed to your diet that my fatty liver, irritable bowel & Fibromyalgia improved out of sight. And the weight loss was nothing short of miraculous. After 15 YEARS of being VERY ill I now have a new lease on life. I praise God for your book and the insights it contains. I have recommended Trim Healthy Mama to many young Christian women as I believe it is a Health book for life based on the truths in the scriptures. Not everyone is easy to convince but my weight loss is speaking to many. After all, it’s supposed to be harder to lose weight when you get older. At 66 and having now lost 40 kilos – no one can say that to me ha ha! I have actually lost another 10 kilos (more than twenty pounds) since this last photo but don’t have an updated photo at present.
I have found my love of cooking again and am enjoying food for the first time in fifteen years. I love the eating plan. The recipes are amazing and so easy. My food bill is definitely down as I am not buying the expensive specialty foods that dietitians had me on before. I love eggs and was blown away to find I can have a couple a day. My generation was brought up to believe that too many eggs was bad for us as was butter and cream.
Your book and the information contained therein is an answer to prayer for me and part of God’s miracle of healing in my life. Thank you and may God continue to richly bless you all the days of your lives.” –Dianne
“I was dreading this day….turning 50. I began my THM journey on April 5th. I made a few goals in the beginning. The 3rd goal was to lose 50 by my 50th birthday, which was just six months away at the time. It happened!!
I am so very, very thankful to Pearl and Serene for listening to God’s prompting and writing this book. I have been trying to lose weight, it seems, my whole adult life. Lose some, gain it back, and more! Finally, I know that this plan is something that is forever! It’s now a way of life.
I feel my bondage to food is broken, God has given me freedom again!! I’m wearing a size now that I haven’t worn since before my youngest was born, more than 23 years ago! So thankful! Now my 79 year old Mom and our 27 year old daughter have begun THM as well and are having great success.
This is to encourage all the 50 something’s out there, you can do this!! It works! The pic on the left is at our youngest son’s wedding last August, unfortunately I got a little bigger after that. The one on the right was taken of me October 5th with my handsome husband of 31 years is exactly 6 months after beginning THM. 50 lbs gone, another 25 or so to get to my goal. It will happen. God is good!!!” –Marlene
“My daughters and I have lost 140 pounds!!! I learned about Trim Healthy Mama through my daughter, Sarah who has now dropped more than 70 pounds thanks to THM. Seeing her transform inspired me to start! My other daughter Jessica and I have joined her and I thought you would like to see our results too. I Love doing this with my daughters. We talk about this new way of life… we laugh and encourage one another. We have so much fun! We’re all a lot happier!
I am 46 and have been dealing with thyroid and menopause issues. I COULDN’T LOSE A POUND TO SAVE MY LIFE! Thought I was eating healthy but felt constantly bloated. I started THM in March. Now I’m not bloated and I have more energy. My night sweats are so much better.
I work in the hospital and they always tell you how to eat. I used to eat whole grain cereal every morning. I was a cereal fanatic! I was eating what I was told to but never ever felt good. I thought I was eating healthy with a lot of whole wheat, Yoplait yogurt, skim milk… a lot of fat free everything… diet pop… never felt good. I was always bloated and had digestive issues. My cholesterol numbers and scale were constantly climbing! Oh My! How depressing!
My daughters and I love sharing our new THM favorites and cooking together. We are on a new healthy journey. I love the shake recipes in the book. My favorite is the Coffee version of the Fat Stripping Frappa. I take it to work every morning. My favorite snacks are the Wasa Crackers with light laughing cow cheese and turkey lunch meat. My favorite dinner is the Sweet and Spicy Asian Stir fry recipe because I love Chinese food.
THM has been a life changer. It’s not just the pounds, its hope for a new way of living. It feels like I am 5 years younger! I love this wisdom. I’m so thankful! I feel like I’m getting healthier while the numbers are going down! Still have more to go but I feel good about myself now! A lot of people I work with see a difference and a few have bought the book and more want to!
My husband can’t stop staring at me, he has lost weight too. He gives me so many compliments on my journey. He encourages me too! And loves the food… Ha!” –Rachel
“Hi ladies! Just thought I’d try to be a little encouraging this morning. I have PCOS and have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of these pounds.
I started THM about 6 months ago, knowing it was an answer to prayer. I feel so much better and I actually have cycles now, without medication! I have attached my before and during photos.
They are almost exactly a year apart. I will tell you, not to sound dramatic, but this time last year, I wasn’t sure I’d be alive this year. I felt horrible and battled illness after illness.
I have never felt better in my life and am so thankful to Serene, Pearl and all of the encouraging sisters I have here in the THM community. I have lost 50lbs. I couldn’t see it until yesterday when the new family picture came across my timeline. My hubby is down 30lbs and has been loosely following the plan since July. Thank you for reading this far. You CAN do it! Take pictures ladies!!!” –Misty
