Trim Healthy Mama Book Study – Week One
Welcome everyone to section one of the Trim Healthy Mama Book Study! We are really excited to have you here.
If you haven’t already, please join our lovely community on Facebook right here. We are a lovely group of ladies who are all going to go through the plan together and support each other towards our health goals.
If you’re new and not sure how this study is going to work, please have a read of this blog post here.
Below are the details for the reading and questions for section one. We have two weeks to cover section one as there is quite a bit of reading and some people are still waiting for books to arrive. If you haven’t got the plan books yet, you can find them in the links below. You can use either book for the Trim Healthy Mama book study.
For this week, concentrate on the reading, just keeping the questions in mind. Next Monday, the 16th January, I will post the questions in group and we will all then have a week to answer them and explore what they mean for us and how to implement the information. As always, feel free to share experience, ask any questions, feedback how Trim Healthy Mama works for you and support each other.
If you get stuck at all, check the pinned post in group – the latest information and links will always be found in there.
Remember – you will only get out of this study what you put into it, so joining in fully with the group will give you the best experience. Reading the answers and hoping it will teach you the plan, is not enough!! You’re only cheating yourself that way!
You can fill in your answers in your printed study guide, a notebook or straight into your plan book (If you are an annotator like I am!) Whatever works best for you. This is your book study, so adapt it to how you learn best. Be honest with your answers, it’s only by being honest with yourself that you will make the changes you need to make.

DIG EVEN DEEPER …
1 – Do you prefer to gently work your way into plan, or would you rather dive in head first and learn as you go?
2 – Are you at peace with the fact that your trim and healthy journey will be very different from others in this group and that you may lose weight more slowly or quickly depending on your age, sex, unique metabolism, history of dieting and approach to starting the plan?
3 – How will you encourage yourself if your progress is not as fast as you would like it to be or if you feel like you have failed meals or full days or make mistakes during the learning curve?
4 – Why is it important to fuel our bodies during weight loss? What message does restricting fuels or foods send to our bodies?
5 – Why do we need to allow times of rest between fuelling?
6 – What is one small change or baby step towards trim and healthy that you can make in this coming week?
Happy Reading everyone, please share any questions and concerns and chat and we can get through this Trim Healthy Mama Book Study together 🙂
