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.


  1. Blogging helps me keep the focus on what I'm doing, even when I'm not doing as well as I want to be doing. But I know that as long as I'm putting myself out there on the blog, I'm still in the game...

  2. Wishing you great success with Medifast. Glad you're going to be blogging more. I've missed your presence here in blogland.

  3. Im with Jack for sure.



  4. I pledged myself to blog every day.... even if I'm not on plan. It's all good! And very real! And I miss your blog - and you!
    Onward and downward, as they say!

  5. Thanks, all! I agree, blogging helps me stay focused. And I have missed all of you :)
