My Noom Journey Update: Almost 5 Months In

{This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make purchase after clicking on my links. Enjoy my review!}

The pace of my life has picked up a bit since my first post about my Noom journey, and it has included some intense moments. All is well, but I have not had much time to be own my own blog to craft an update! 🙂 Nevertheless, I am taking a few moments here to pause, breathe, and share some of my thoughts. I will share them here in bullet point form, just as I have written them in my journal. Enjoy my brief insights!

  • ◦ {Noom} works in the way you think about your emotions, decisions, and food

 

  • ◦ I haven’t logged food much at all, that was proving to be too taxing for me with other things going on in my home

 

  • ◦ However, the color coded system for logging helps me to keep in mind what foods I should lean into having more of

 

  • ◦ No food is inherently good or bad

 

  • ◦ Changing my thinking about punishment/reward system

 

  • ◦ I haven’t really lost weight, but haven’t really gained any either

 

  • ◦ Letting go of that “I’ve exercised so now I can eat this” mentality, or vice versa

 

 

  • ◦ There are other things they teach to be more in tune with what my body is telling me, but that is not necessarily an area I have time or focus to explore

 

  • ◦ There is something to read everyday to keep you moving toward your goal

 

  • ◦ I’m just proud of myself that I am still in the game after 4+ months!

 

  • ◦ It challenges me pushed me to change my perspective about life in general

 

  • ◦ To succeed at this program, to get the most out of it, you need to commit to the processes and psych that is shared and try to put them into practice

 

  • ◦ Admittedly, I didn’t commit fully to every psychological suggestion that was presented (or the food diary) due to other things going on in my life. I felt that if I tried to implement EVERYTHING, I would have felt overloaded. Instead, I have taken what is for me, what I felt I COULD do, and have kept things moving forward for me in that way.

Have you tried Noom? What are your thoughts? I would love to hear them!

    I’ve not tried it. I do think you’ve made good, wise decisions about implementing their ideas. Any day one doesn’t gain is a good day. 🙌🙌🙌
    Their ideas and yours sound ….well….sound.
