Day Two – 30 Days Of Tips For Starting The Trim Healthy Mama Plan (THM)
Day Two – Tip Two –
Join A Facebook Group, Or Few!
(THM For Beginners)
If you have come here through the post I put on a Facebook page then you have already done this one! However, there are many different Facebook groups that can help you on this journey. I am not suggesting that you join them all, that would be crazy and unhelpful. What I am saying is, do your research on what groups there are that could genuinely help you and then join a few.
Some examples are
THM Beginners Group
Pregnant and Nursing
No special ingredients
Very fluffy THM Allergy Mamas
Just do a search on Facebook and you will see many official groups.
If you’re new to THM then join three or four relevant groups and then lurk a bit. Read what others put, see their questions and encouragement and begin to absorb it all. Most of us learn by seeing things for ourselves and the forums are a great way to do this. There is no such thing as a bad questions so feel free to ask things and join in.
If you are following THM alone or you are isolated geographically, then the groups will be a huge source of help and encouragement and wonderful friendships. The admin are amazing (I have to say that I am on the admin team 🙂 ) and are all volunteers and really know their stuff – so ask the group members and admin for help when you get stuck and they will be right there with you.
One thing to remember that will make you more popular with admin is that most groups have both a pinned post at the top of the page and a ‘files’ section. The pinned post usually contains any important information and guidelines for the group. Reading this before posting will usually mean you avoid any issues or falling foul of any ‘rules’. The files section usually contains really useful documents that will help you and that you can print to read offline. Have a look at both the pinned post and the files section in any group you join and you will find a wealth of information that will be a huge help.
So today, join a group or two that you are not part of already, something relevant to you (Not fuel cycle yet please!!) and start interacting with the other members. Tomorrow is our last day of preparation steps before we open our books and start figuring out the plan 🙂
