THM New Year, New You Challenge

Happy 2016!  If you have followed my blog any length of time at all you will know that I have always struggled with my weight, and began following Trim Healthy Mama in 2013.  Trim Healthy Mama was a lifesaver for me.  It wasn't too strict, and allows me to give myself grace when I don't eat exactly as I should - I just tell myself that in 3 hours I will be back on plan.  I lost quite a bit of weight following this plan but in February, 2015 I began having problems with my endemetriosis.  As I was dealing with these problems, I fell off the wagon - in a big way.  This has caused me to gain back every bit of the weight that I lost plus a couple of pounds.

Well, I have had enough!  I know Trim Healthy Mama works, and I am committing to follow it.  I need accountability, because the freedom this plan allows makes it too easy for me to stray.  I am going to be joining the THM New Year, New You Challenge that is on Facebook and am committed to losing this weight again.

The challenge will last a month.  I am starting the challenge out posting before pictures, weighing in, and taking measurements (I found this cute printable to record them) .  During the month I will eat completely on plan, with five to seven E meals a week.  I also plan to do 15 minutes of exercise 5 days a week.  This will not necessarily all be gym days, to be honest I am a super busy mom who works full-time, homeschools my kids, and runs an Etsy shop.  I don't have time for the gym but am committed to get there at least two nights per week.  Luckily I have a stationary bike at home as well as a treadmill.  I am going to use my fitbit to track my steps and make sure that I get my steps in each week.  In addition I will be doing the Fit and Lean in 2016 Pushup Challenge from Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans,

So here are my beginning photos.
