Thank you medifast! Found my way back to the 100’s!!!

199.4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s been almost 5 years since I saw a one in the beginning on the scale!

Welcome back to the 100’s!! :)))))) I’ve lost over 10 inches from my body and 26.6 pounds, 21 of them in the past month! My size 12 jeans buttoned up! Tight as H. But they buttoned!!!

Now on to the next goal– 185 :)) Only 14 pounds away!!

Medifast is my freaking hero.

Feeling grateful and blessed and filled with belief in myself!

10 pounds in ten days with medifast!

Wow, so my first ten days with medifast were pretty awesome. I’ve dropped ten pounds which is pretty awesome. I’m sure some is water weight but hey thats still less I have to carry around! I am starting to feel more energetic and a bit less hungry. I’m glad medifast is working quickly for me in the beginning (hopefully always lol) because it is so hard to stay motivated when you are obese as ten pounds isnt really even noticeable, I can barely tell at all. I really need like a 20 pound loss to see/feel a difference and usually give up before getting there as it takes so long… so, thanks medifast!!! *crossing fingers I keep with it*

My coach/dietician has said that I can eat more vegetables than what is recommended by medifast, that it will not kick me out of the fat burning stage. Like adding a salad with my medifast lunch in addition to my lean and green for dinner. Has anyone done this or how do you feel about it?

Her big reason for this was that I get a bit shaky around lunch time but don’t want to eat my lean and green then, Id prefer to eat with my family for dinner. Also, I love my big lean and green meal and dont want to take from that. I love a BIG meal… hopefully ill adjust my preference for that some day as tummy shrinks… i just LOVE (but oddly also hate) that full filled up feeling. So anyway she said I can eat more veggies… ???

So, original high weight– 226; medifast starting weight– 220.6; NOW– 209.4!!

IT WILL BE SO AWESOME TO BE IN THE 100’S!!!

88 days smoke free!!!

Its been quite the while since I posted. It’s been a life changing few months!

Best news of all is that I finally quit smoking– 88 days now!! 🙂

Also, became single (found out fiance was cheating) ! this is a GOOD thing because I found out before we got married (and spent thousands on a wedding)! Luckily, I’m the bigger person and allowing him to rent the basement for some time so that the kids (we have 3 year old twins) can adjust to the changes and we can both save up money. I actually feel really good about being single, after 8 years of trying to make it work with this man I know I tried everything possible. It is not me. I accept that, … Finally.

And the final good news— I have started Medifast!!! Actually the Take Shape For Life program but I’m actually not sure if the whole coach thing is really all that great as I am on day 2 and haven’t heard a peep from the coach. I’m not really the reach out to strangers type so the whole coach thing might be pointless. But the coach is also my dietician and I’m meeting with her every other week SO I do like the accountability and support with that.

I do not plan to get on the scale until my next appointment– on the 24th. I do not do well with the normal scale fluctuations that occur and think i should just stay away!!

I really actually like the foods so far. I was really worried after reading reviews but, to me, it tastes fine. So far I’ve had the peanut butter chocolate chip chewy bar, honey mustard pretzels, fruit and nut bar, and the blueberry muffin. All are yummy!

I am pretty excited about all the changes that are taking place and the positive direction my life is headed! 🙂
