Have you ever had a curveball thrown at you? Everything is going well and then boom ~ curveball. Something you weren’t expecting, something inconvenient, something that threatens to derail the success you’ve been experiencing. It happens to the best of us but the most important thing to remember is that…
…it doesn’t HAVE to derail you. I know curveballs aren’t fun, nor are they expected. It’s just one of those life things. An illness, an unexpected guest shows up with pizza, something happens that makes you really sad…the list goes on. These are the trials we get to experience because we live on planet earth. It’s not always fun or convenient but we do get to choose how we respond.
I’ll admit, I haven’t always chosen the high road in these instances. There are times I dove right into a box of donuts because I felt sad. When you feel sad you feel justified don’t you? It’s almost an irrational response. “I need these donuts NOW and nothing in the world will make me feel better in this moment.” Tht feels pretty justified yeah? But it’s nonsense and deep down we know that. Of course those donuts don’t even make you feel better. They make you feel worse and are often accompanied by diarrhea so there’s that aspect as well.
Trust me, I feel the pain of a well timed curveball just like anyone else. It’s up to you if you want to let it knock you down and keep you there. You have the choice to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and hit that ball out of the park next time. You don’t have to eat an entire pie to yourself in the meantime.

Meggan Larson is a wife, mom of three, and challenge overcomer! Being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and undergoing aggressive chemotherapy when her second born child was only three months old, gave Meggan an expected twist to her life. Dealing with pregnancy weight gain and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy, Meggan’s weight soared to over 228 pounds. Feeling humiliated with no desire to socialize, Meggan was desperate for a change. Shortly after losing 20 pounds with the Trim Healthy Mama program, Meggan found out she was pregnant with baby number three, which ended in an emergency C-section and unexpected hysterectomy. Despite the challenges she faced, Meggan has just celebrated her one year “trimiversary”, and her success of releasing just over 60 pounds! Meggan is confident that her success on plan is “doable” for anyone looking to gain back their health and wanting to live a trim and healthy lifestyle!
