Put Your Jeans On
By Meggan Larson
Dear diary: It’s day 1, 143, 256 of social distancing. The road has been long, pants unforgiving. I stare out the window longingly wishing for the days when we were simply afraid of romaine lettuce. My gas bill is next to nothing and my grocery receipts look like I’ve been feeding an NFL football team. It’s just us though. We keep buying food to stock up for a few weeks and then eating it all faster than we imagined we would. I saw a meme about trying on your jeans every few days to make sure they fit and lawd have mercy they were tight!
Is this what your diary entry would look like? It’s what mine looks like right about now. It’s been rough trying to maintain my routine while being stuck at home with far more groceries than normal. It’s been a challenging balance trying not to grocery shop every few days and trying not to eat everything in sight. How have you been managing?
The meme I saw was funny but was also pretty good advice. Try on your jeans every few days and you might be able to stay on track better. it will be a reality check when you need one and an encouragement when you need it. You might also try putting on your bathing suit every couple of weeks. 😉 it’s not a terrible idea to make sure you are still fitting into your clothes. I know it’s tempting to wear pj’s every single day but getting dressed might save you! Worth a shot anyway.

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!
