I am free
like a bird
flying high I soar
because I’m not
and I am feeling-
because you see-
I am finally
New Year’s Eve marked the one year anniversary that I began following the Trim Healthy Mama plan. It has been a year of food freedom for me- but so much more than that! For years I have been a slave to counting calories- how many calories I consume at each meal and how many calories I burn at each workout. Even on the days when I would “take a break”… I would still keep a running tab in my head.
And the worst part of it all? None of that effort made any difference! No matter how much I worked out, no matter how carefully I watched my calorie intake- I couldn’t lose a pound to save my life!! For years I felt defeated and discouraged. My body hurt all the time and I had no energy.
I have my friend, Natalee to thank for introducing me to the Trim Healthy Mama plan. Just give it a try, she told me. So I began reading about it and checking out recipes on Pinterest. I started looking for ways to make the things I already eat fit in with the program. And the great things is that I have found ways to eat everything I love!
For all of 2017, I have not counted a single calorie! That is a miracle for me! And I have worked out less this past year than I have in the last 15 years! And praise the Lord- at 40, I feel better than ever! I have lost 35 pounds over this past year and I have gained so much more-
-freedom from the scale
Thank God Almighty- I am free at last!!
So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 8:36
