This has been the longest week of my life!!! It's my last week of having to be on this Medifast diet before the transition and I am not motivated to stick to it. I have not cheated this week, but I have had mad cravings.
This past weekend wasn't all that great for my diet. I went home to see my mom...she had knee surgery and Saturday night, we decided on pizza for dinner. Mom wanted thin crust and I was SUPPOSED to only eat 1 slice, but by the time we got our pizza, I was so hungry, I ate 2! Well, thin crust does not fill me up that much so a few hours later, I got another... :( I did get up and go walk/running the next morning though...to hopefully offset the damage I had done. Oh, but on a side note, my mom, sister, and dad all said that I looked skinnier. That really made me feel good since my mom and sister always seem to make a big deal about my weight.
So when I got back on Sunday, I was not feeling the shakes and bars at all and I gave in and had McDonalds. OMG! I just love McDonalds double cheeseburgers! I really think they put crack in their food!! So instead of me just shaking that off and moving forward with my shakes I decided that since we were going to a baseball game that night with friends, I wanted to eat a hot dog at the game with everybody else.
So I weighed myself on Monday morning and I had not gained anything but my stomach has not been as flat as it had been in the past. That was a wake-up call! But seriously...can I never have carbs again in life?? I have been doing some sort of workout everyday since Friday (excluding Sunday) and my stomach still hasn't gone back down. :(
I got up and weighed myself this morning and I'm back down to 15 lbs lost but today is Wednesday and our game night is coming up Saturday. I don't plan to stuff myself but I really want a piece of pizza and chips and salsa and peach cobbler...listen to myself! I sound like a fat girl! LOL
I think this will be a constant struggle for me for the rest of my life. I can say at least Medifast has jump started the weight loss process for me when nothing else seem to work. I know that I can't eat ALL of my favorite food in a week's time and that I need to consistently workout.
So for now, I will finish out my week...I only have a half a week left or 18 meals left to go! ;-)
Until next time...
