10 years ago I was in pain. Bending over to tie my shoes felt like I was a tube of toothpaste being squeezed from the middle with the cap still on. At my heaviest I lost circulation as soon as I knelt down, a short walk made my head pound and my heart race, and simple household chores left me exhausted. Worst of all my waist was so wide my arms couldn't reach to give my husband a proper hug.
I was smart, of course I knew the difference between a salad and a plate of fettuccine Alfredo but after years of living with bad habits I had no idea where to begin to lose the weight and keep it off.
On August 18th 2008 my husband and I started following a meal plan and the changes that followed blew our minds!
The plan gave us parameters for choosing our food. Our new approach to food immediately took the stress out of healthy eating. Following the plan was the key to creating new habits that became our new lifestyle.
Now, without thinking our portions are under control, we have the energy to outlast our kids, and enjoy all life has to offer without worrying about a backsliding.
The Half Her Size 1500 meal plan is just what I needed to get myself motivated. It’s comprehensive, presented in an organized way that’s very easy to follow and includes easy to find foods. You get meal plans, shopping lists, snack ideas and swaps. Rose has thought of everything. - Christina H.
"I love the layout and that you grouped each day with the recipes! The recipes seem simple and yet delicious and doable. Also, reusing the leftovers for lunch next day is so brilliant. I'm excited about this and look forward to more! Thank you Rose!" - Chris L.
"I love this plan! It has been very helpful for me as a busy mom and the recipes are delicious." - Kelli J.
This meal plan is fantastic! It takes the headache out of trying to come up with something new and healthy to eat on my own. Everything is so clear. The best part for me is the grocery list!
Well the best part might actually be that Rose has included great ideas for snacks and a splurge now and again – which has kept me going - Chris A.
Losing any amount of weight requires:
When people count on you, it is vital that you make your own health a priority. Learn to eat mindfully… so you can be anywhere, and find nourishing food.
Remember, healthy food is good for everyone!
You are your kids most important teacher. Children learn more from showing than telling - if you have bad eating habits they will have bad eating habits.
A good plan teaches you how to make your health a priority, so you can be more present to those you love, and teaches your children that healthy choices are a family value.
I'm a working mom who needs an easy way to manage my weight and feed my family. As a weight loss coach I want a simple system to help my clients reach their weight loss goals.
I created this plan from the exact way my husband & I lost over 300 pounds and have kept it off for over 5 years! It fits into our busy life, because it uses "normal" food that the entire family likes.
The easy recipes save time and make weigt loss sustainable and delicious.
