Trim Healthy Mama Book Study – Week One (Unofficial)
The day is finally here!! Today we start our unofficial Trim Healthy Mama book study online together!
If you’re new, or not sure how this works, then this blog post may be helpful to you.
This is the fourth time I have run the book study as an online group and the most important thing I can tell you is that you will only get out of it what you put into it.
If you don’t do the reading, don’t answer the questions and then just look at everyone elses answers and think you’ve learnt the plan – you will fail!
Sorry, but it is true. You are worth the time and effort needed to learn this healthy way of living and once you have grasped the basics of this plan you have a healthy way of living FOR LIFE!
We have two weeks to cover the reading and the questions for week one, so there is still time to join us. If you don’t yet have the books then you can order them using our affiliate links below. You can also get the audio book version from Audible for free if you sign up for a new customer trial of Audible! This is also linked below. All affiliate links help us to spare the time from work to run the study so we are very grateful when you use them. Items bought through the links don’t cost you any extra, or change the service you get, but we receive a small referral payment for them which helps us to run the blog. Our full disclosure is found in our “About Us” section. If you want more details about Audible, then this post may be helpful to you.

Don’t forget to download the FREE study guide from the Trim Healthy Mama website on this page here. Keep scrolling to the very bottom of the page and you will see them there or click this link here to download. We will be using the scripture based guide. There is very little difference between the two, just a couple of extra questions on the scripture one. If you wish to skip the scripture based questions then you are welcome to do so. You will need to download this to your computer or print it if you want to write straight on it.
To follow the study, simply complete the reading listed below, keep chatting and asking questions and supporting each other in the chat group and then answer the questions on the posts in the question group. For this first week, we have a full week of reading, then a full week for questions, but you can just work through at your own pace.
