Loving it

I made it through my third day of Medifast and I feel pretty good. I was really hungry the first day but drank lots of water to fill in the gaps. Yesterday and today I've been mildly hungry and forgot to eat one of the meals *gasp* Imagine, me missing a meal, haha.

Anyway, today I went out for dinner and had grilled chicken and some spinach. I was a little nervous about going out so soon after starting my new plan, but I was in control and made good choices. It was nice having a 3-day weekend to have a chance to eat on plan at home for a few days before doing this at work. There are several people at work doing Medifast (MF) and they keep a single serving blender at work. I bought a Magic Bullet yesterday and think I will take it tomorrow. I made the soft serve tonight with it and it was awesome.

It's a three day week for me at work this week as I have to go out of town Friday and return Saturday night. I will take my MF meals with me and make good choices when I'm faced with eating out. I'm determined to make this work - no matter what.

We had a touch of fall in the air today. Yay! Well, let's just say it was cooler than it has been in months.

Have a great week. Make good choices! Oh, and don't forget to drink your water!

I haven't been blogging much because I haven't felt very successful at my diet. I know that dieting isn't the "be all, end all" but when you are very overweight, it kinda occupies your every thought. At least, it occupies my every thought. I'm so tired of losing a few pounds only to gain them right back. Thinking about what to eat, what not to eat just makes me want to eat. I don't want to give up and I won't give up, but it's time to try something different. So, I ordered Medifast and started yesterday!

I'm really excited about the simplicity of it. I just choose which five (yes, five) of their meals I want to have for the day and then I have a "Lean & Green" meal once a day. I'm mostly having shakes and bars but they also have these awesome Parmesan Puffs that I love. I have been reading the boards over at the Medifast website and checking out what works and what doesn't. So far, I'm very encouraged that I've made the right choice for right now. I once thought that doing a weightloss program like this was too unrealistic, but I'm desperate to lose this weight and aside from weightloss surgery (which worked for Janell), this looks to be doable.

I'm still working on setting some goals. One I know for sure is kayaking some time next year. And blogging more. I know it helps me to stay accountable.

Take care. Have a safe and happy Labor Day.
