How to Make Good Vacation Choices
By Meggan Larson
I was in Jamaica last week and it was EPIC! The views were absolutely gorgeous. The people were so kind. And the food, oh the food, was delicious! I did not want to come back feeling disgusting and bloated and having gained a ton of weight so I went into the week with a plan.
Here’s what I did…
I planned to stay on track for 80% of the week. I didn’t want to feel like I couldn’t have something if I really wanted it (they have an ice cream parlor, I mean come on!) but I also didn’t want the week to be a free for all ya know? So I filled up on veggies as often as possible and stuck to yummy proteins. I avoided the bread as much as possible and when it came to drinks I stuck to water or tonic and brought liquid stevia. I also brought swerve for my morning coffee.
I was prepared y’all! I know how it feels to eat like a pig and get home feeling further away from my goals than ever. I just didn’t want to do that to myself this time. 2020 is special to me for some reason, I can just feel it. That’s why I decided to treat my body kindly, rest as often as possible, and eat well. It truly is our choice whether we are careful about what we eat or not. I can tell you this much, I didn’t feel deprived at all during my trip!
It’s not always easy to make the best decisions for our health but oh my goodness when you do it feels amazing! I know it did for me. Besides, I was too busy enjoying the sparkling water, sleeping on the beach, and catching up on all the reading I meant to do so far this year. When in doubt, distract yourself from eating junk! You’ve got this mama.

I am serious when I say that if you’re tired of going back and forth each year and not getting any closer to your goal weight then this is the answer you’ve been praying for.

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!
