Time To Speed Things Up
By Meggan Larson
I’ve been pretty content in my weight lately. I’ve been fitting into smaller jeans and you know that always makes you feel like a million bucks. I haven’t necessarily been lax on my eating but probably eating homemade sweet potato fries once a week and crossover pizza is not reaaaally needed. This past weekend I went to Texas for an event and had a great time with my tribe.
It wasn’t until…
I saw the pictures taken of our team that I got a bit of a reality check. I am not where I want to be. I cringed a little bit looking at the pictures of myself. You know when you think you’re doing super well and then you see a picture and are like yiiiiiikes…that’s where I am. I really thought I looked better than that! I guess in this selfie induced world where you can take a pic in the exact angle you look best, it’s easy to fool yourself into thinking you’re closer to where you want to be than you actually are. It was a much-needed reality check, to be honest. It forced me to reevaluate how I’ve been eating and where I can change some things. It also gave me a renewed sense of determination to finish the year strong. I have some solid goals and I know what it takes to make them happen. I just needed a reminder that I’m not where I want to be yet.
This journey is a lifelong one. At times we need to be reminded to keep going and stop veering off the path of success no matter how slightly. Maybe you need that reminder today to just tighten up on your eating or exercise routine. If you know you can be doing better than you are, do it! You owe it to yourself to give it your very best shot; not your most mediocre one. I look forward to going to this event next year and comparing the pictures to each other because I know that I’ll be smaller. And so will you!

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!
