I'm back, again, again and again

Postby AnnaKat » January 2nd, 2007, 10:30 am

Hopefully this is the last time I can say that I'm back. This time I need to stay on medifast until I reach my goal. I have failed myself, not sticking with this 3 times now. The first time I was on it, I lost 40 lbs in just 2 and a half months. I was finally feeling good and glad I accomplished something. But I stopped, and gained it all back plus 20 lbs. I am miserable. I've tried 2 more times, only to quit before the first week was up. I am a single person who gets lonely and sad and I've just become so addicted to eating and I drink a lot of alcohol. I've thought that it's just not fair that I have to watch what I eat, and I can't be like my friends..able to eat what they want. And as girlfriends do, we always "get together" of dinner and drinks.
But I've soared to 304 lbs! I am absolutely apalled I let it get this far. And now it's not about "being skinny" but now it's about being HEALTHY. So once again, and for the last time, I vow to change my way of life. Let Medifast work for me (as it has done in the past). I'm young and I need to do this so that I may live a long healthy life. I am thankful this support is out there and I am here for you all, as I know you are all here for me.

Happy New Year to all of you.

I find myself getting frustrated at times, but I never seem to give up on this program.
I know it works, its me it seems that has the problem (as is the case I think with most people who say that medifast doesn't work for them).
I am glad you are back with us, and lets make this the best year for all of us.

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

You are here now, thats what matters!

Oh, Annakat... :pet:

You and I have so much in common, oh yeah, check out my past posts on here heheh!

Toss that misery aside and just gear up, sista, you're here to win.

I know it's very hard but ditch the booze however you can, it only makes everything a million times more miserable.

Welcome back! :wavie:

Welcome back! Alot of us are restarting again. We can do this together! At least you are aware of what the problem is and your doing something about it. That's way better than doing nothing at all and gaining even more weight. You can do this. We are all here for one another. Sometimes we are going to fall to the wayside. We just have to brush ourselves off and keep going. You have a goal. Everyone has their own way of reaching their goal. The important thing is that you reach it. I gained my weight back too, but I knew I would because I wanted to really enjoy the holidays and not have to think about dieting, but I knew that after New Year's that was it. LET"S DO THIS! :yeah:

Thanks everyone!!!! It makes it all much easier with the support and knowing I'm not alone in my successes and failures.
So yes, let's all commit and reach our goals one step at a time.

not alone

Postby LAwoman » January 3rd, 2007, 11:41 am

Hey AnnaKat,

Welcome back and let me add that you are definitely not alone. In fact it was very timely to read your post this morning as I actually went to bed last night feeling grateful that I'm not alone in this.

I was feeling not so great, in fact pretty awful about how I've treated my body over the years, and the inability to control my eating and weight. But at the same time I felt so inspired and able to do something about it because of all the people here I see who are going through the same thing and their successes.

So, I just wanted to say I'm truly glad you're back to use MF as a tool to lose the weight to have the "way of life" that you want.
