Hello AJStory!

Exactly!!! The only thing that keeps me going and never giving in to the temporary pangs of wanting to cheat is knowing that this phase of the program "is only for a season". That and knowing that with Gods grace I can do this program and be a success story.

When's the right time?

Postby tcwells82 » July 10th, 2004, 1:28 am

okay, I started off good, and that lasted for about all of three days, I was so ashamed that I didn't sign on to the forum..I didn't want to have to face anyone, or read about someone elses success because of my failures. You know I started this diet and I haven't been home...I work, or I am at my sister's, for the first time in like two weeks I am actually home around dinner time. My mom's fiance got into an "nice" argument with me. I told my mom that I wasn't going to eat dinner because I am on my diet...then my mom's fiance told me I HAD to at least try some of his homemade beef stew (he is a chef)..I told him that I couldn't but he just wouldn't leave me alone...he actually argued wth me..nicely..but still, I finally gave in and had a bowel of the stupid stew just to get him to shut up!!!!! I was so mad... :x , I wanted to scream..but when I tasted the stew it was delicious so I just told myself I would get back on track tomorrow...the next day I screwed up with pizza!!! I work third shift, it's hard to do MF anyway, I am taking my Lincensure exam for nursing on the 20th of this month, my mom is not supportive and has a weight problem, heart problem, and she smokes and to be honest I don't think she really wants me to be successful because that will make her look at herself more I figure I'll start MF back up when I move out of my mom's at the end of this month...but I don't want to wait, but I don't want to keep failing either..I can't afford it!!!! :sadblue: I know these are all excuses...Someone please tell me I can do this NOW, that I really shouldn't wait, that all the odds are not stacked against me....

TCWells82 and Janet, etc.

Yep, ya really CAN do this.

Staying on the Plan during the weight loss phase IS possible. It is necessary IF ya want to reach optimal health and a better weight.

It does take discipline. Self-discipline. Discipline is NOT a negative thing - so often we think of discipline as the result of doing something wrong. Like when your Mom whacks your hand for reaching into the cookie jar between meals! Actually, I like to look at discipline as what it truly is: training.

Medifasting trained me to eat on time, to know how much to eat - and personally, a Medifast shake or a serving of Medifast soup is rather a teensy amount. I laughed when I first saw the serving sizes! They seem so puny compared to my former servings.

But that's one of those self-destructive sabotage type thoughts...

I loved Dr. Newhart's replies! Stop it! Yeah, that's right on!

Maintenance takes diligence, Folks. Once ya reach your goal weight, it does not mean that you may go back to your old eating habits, eating copious amounts of grub.

Every day I weigh, record my weight and monitor my food intake.

I have made a choice to not ever over eat two days in a row and I don't eat humongous servings of high fat foods. I don't need it. I don't want it. It is not good for me.

When I get out of sorts, I look at one of my Mary Engelbreit cards that has a picture of a school marmy-looking lady, arms folded across her meager chest and in bold black letters, it says, "Snap out of it!"So often, I just need to snap out of it. To Stop it.

"Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of CHOICE. It is not something to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved." (Jeremy Kitson)

What will YOU choose to achieve today?
