Follow Up on How I Lost Twenty Pounds

Here are a few more tips and some links to help any of those who are interested in learning more about the Trim Healthy Mama plan that I posted about on Monday.

This Mexican omelet is the breakfast I made myself recently, when I was wanting something a little different than my usual chocolate muffin in a mug.  This is an S meal, which stands for Satisfying.  Its low carb, easy and fast to make.



Just mix up two eggs in a small bowl with a fork and add a little salt and pepper.  Heat about a tablespoon of coconut oil in a non stick small frying pan.  Pour the eggs into the pan and then add 3 or 4 tablespoons of jarred salsa on one half.  You might want more or less than that, depending on the spiciness of your salsa!  Its best to use salsa with no sugar added, but if you don't have it, I don't think there's enough to worry about.

Then add what ever other things you like in an omelet, such as deli meat ham, precooked sausage or bacon, cheese, chopped onions, bell peppers and mushrooms.  After it has cooked a little, flip the empty half over onto the other half and let it cook just a little longer.

Here are some of my favorite links that have inspired and helped me to learn about Trim Healthy Mama.

One thing I really want to stress is that  to succeed on this plan, or any plan, is that you shouldn't give up.  Just keep plugging away on it.  If you eat an off plan meal, its ok.  Just go back to the plan at your next meal.  Losing weight slowly over time is so much better than quick weight loss that you gain right back.  Sometimes when the scale didn't seem to budge for me, I thought about giving up, but I stuck to it and slowly, but surely, it worked.  This would be true of any weight loss plan.
