Testimony Time!

Have you ever wondered if THM really works for real people? Here is a testimony from my client Sarah!

July 18, 2018- I made the decision to become healthier. I was 7 months postpartum and completely miserable. I wanted to get rid of the extra weight and find my usual energy again. I started cutting back on eating out and just tried to make better food choices. I was able to lose a couple pounds on my own.

A few weeks later Shannon Sikes reached out to me and let me know she was going to be a THM Coach and asked if I was interested. I of course said yes! After our initial coaching session I jumped into the THM plan and haven’t looked back.

My first on plan day was August 18, 2018.

While I haven’t been 100% every single day, I’ve never completely fallen off plan. I do make a few planned splurges on occasion. I am almost 5 months on plan now and I feel so much better! My energy is back and my body feels healthier. I’ve recently started taking Feminine Balance and I’ve noticed it helps me emotionally! THM is absolutely life changing and it especially helps when you have a good coach backing you along the way!

I honestly would have quit long ago, despite the weight loss, if I was not able to ask her questions about the plan. While I feel more comfortable now deciding what to eat / not having to worry if I am eating on plan or not, I’m still learning. It’s so nice to be able to ask for help, and vent when things aren’t happening as fast as I would like. And having the accountability definitely helps me stay on track!

6 months ago I was the heaviest I have ever been…Today I can say that I have lost 40 pounds and they are never coming back!

Thank you Pearl and Serene for coming up with such a doable plan, and thank you Shannon Sikes (My Healthy Journey For Life) for letting me pester you with THM questions on a weekly basis. 😂❤️

Words of Encouragement Wednesday ~ Water

We know we need it. We know it is good for us. But for some reason it is such a discipline to get it done!

We need to drink more water! (I’m preaching to myself here!) I know I feel better when I drink water all day long, I know it’s good for me and yet still I struggle!

Today the Butterfly Institute posted this little gem and I wanted to share it with you:

Tip of the day: Drink 16oz of water right after you wake up. Water fires up your metabolism, hydrates you, helps your body flush out toxins, gives your brain fuel, and may even make you eat less.

That’s some great info! And it gives me an action plan! I always get up and have a cup of coffee straight off. Well now I’m going to make my cup of coffee my reward for my 16oz of water! And hopefully that first glass of water will set up my “thirst” for water the rest of the day.

What are your water drinking tips? Also, if you haven’t heard of the Butterfly Institute you should go and check them out!

Today I just want you to think about this. Food amazing. We get lots of enjoyment from it. But food serves a purpose as well. It is our fuel. It keeps us going and it either keeps us healthy or damages our health.

Think about that! You can sustain life with just about anything. It just takes a certain amount of calories to keep you “living”. But the things you choose to fuel yourself with can do more than just keep you alive. They can cause you to thrive! They can fight disease. They can heal systems that have been damaged! Our bodies are designed by God to heal and we have nutritious food at our fingertips to make that process go even better.

But often we choose foods that don’t do anything for us but keep the motor running. And in the process of putting those calories in, we also do damage to our bodies. We cause our system to not work efficiently. We feed disease. Suddenly that “fuel” that is keeping us alive is draining us of the ability to live well!

As you choose your food think about this. Choose items that will give you both pleasure AND health. It can be done! I’d love to show you how.

When you get caught in the trap of looking for the end result you end up getting frustrated that you are not there yet. Frustration often leads to quitting and getting set further back. This is a vicious cycle to get into that can leave you stuck.

You need to change your focus. Stop looking for a certain number on the scale, stop looking for a certain size on your clothing tags. Instead look for healthy things you can do every day. Focus on feeding your body the good foods it needs, focus on healthy habits, focus on doing what you need to do each day. Before you know it the results you desire will occur.
