Is It Really Worth It?
By Meggan Larson
If you read my article from last week then you know I was on vacation recently. I got back on Friday of last week and I am so glad that I brought my scale with me. Even though I did, I still gained a whopping 7 & 1/2lbs in a SINGLE week! I was appalled, to say the least. It’s been coming off steadily since I’ve been home but I felt the edges of depression creeping up on me over the weekend and it made me think to myself…
Was it even worth it? I had a good time, lots of swimming, reading, movies. etc. and way too much junk food. It had been a couple of years since I really let myself eat unrestricted like that. I ate butter tarts, and chips, and way too much cheese. I never really had that moment of “ahhhhh this is so good and so worth it” ya know? It was kind of meh, to be honest. At the end of the week, I was more disappointed than anything and nothing I ate was worth gaining over 7lbs. The saddest part was how much I was looking forward to the gorge-fest and it wasn’t even worth it!
This week I’ve made my favorite on plan cookies and an apple crisp made with the baking blend and they were both just as good if not better than anything I ate last week. I’ve lost 3 of the 7 & 1/2 lbs that I gained (in less than a week) and I just feel so much better. I write this in part to show you that I’m in no way perfect, but also to hopefully save you from making the same bad choices. Save yourself a detox headache, bloating, and depression and just stay on plan.

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 five 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!
