Feeling down

Postby Yworry » September 1st, 2007, 3:46 pm

Well the good news is that in 6 hours I will have made it my first full week in a year and half. But I am feeling down because I am feeling physically burned out I guess my body is taking a bit longer getting use to the fact that I am not eating 10000 cal a day anymore. I am also upset because I can't see the progress yet because sad to say my scale will not weigh me. I cursed at the stupid machine today all it does is beep, beep at me. :x And that means
1. I am not losing weight as fast as I normally do the first week or
2. I weighed more than I thought when I started (my wife said this was probably the case since I always lose more than her :? ).
I also am still getting use to not eating what I want when I want it. All I want right now is a (*****explict description coming up******) Stuffed Crust Meatlovers pizza from Pizza Hut. But alas I am about to have my lean cut of beef and some brocolli. Not really a substitute. :x
But I am just venting and I really want this to work this time, hopefully that stupid machine will say something to me in the next couple of days and then at least I can see some progress and I know in the coming weeks My clothes will start to fit better and that will be a help also.

Remember Clint, after you do something 21 times it becomes habit. Soon you wont even think about it, it will become natural.

I started Medifast on June 11 at 406lbs i weighed last Sunday at 326.2 thats almost 80lbs in 11 weeks. (Tomorrow is my weigh day)

Just keep the faith you know you can do it

Good Luck and keep us updated.

One thing i did at first was sometimes have the egg beaters. (i still do)You get two cups plus your veggies ITS ALOT OF FOOD and sometimes more filling that other L&G's

Great idea with the Eggbeaters. It is tough, there's no way around that - but if you're not feeling so hot, remember, give it a week or two and you will get a burst of energy and really start feeling wonderful. It's so worth it. Hang in there!!!

Hiya Clint........hang in there buddy.
It's pretty much impossible for you not to have lost weight if your calories are as reduced as they are, isn't it?
Perhaps if you thought of your craving in a less than glamorous fashion it wouldn't be as temping or desirable...??
Here's the nutritional info on just ONE SLICE of what you're craving.
Think also in terms of how harmful to your body its contents are ~ in all of its artery-clogging glory :shock:

:D I hope this helps:


Shake it gone, babeee!!!

Holy Guacamole!! That really puts things into perspective, doesn't it? I happened to be in the shower when the abuse to the scale began...I hope that it will register for him soon, or else I'll live without the scale!!

I know he can do it!

Hang in there. I was where you are now (as well as when you started). You can do it.

On the scale thing, I know its frustrating. One suggestion is to visit your local hospital or clinic and ask them if you can use their scale.

When I was 460 we bought a Tanita that weights up to 600 lbs. It works really well, even if we are alot less now. I'm at 273 and my wife is down almost 120 from 303 to almost 183. Hang in there buddy, you can do this. Then you can show off how well you have done and others will want to join you.

Keep at it you two, you are both doing great. :mrgreen:
Pre WLS 460
Low after WLS 300
Start of MF 350
Previous MF low 280
Restart MF 330

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

Well That stupid thing is still beeping at me and not telling me how much I weigh. I thought I got a reading on Monday but evidently I didn't. Which makes me think I was closer to the 460 mark than I wanted to believe. Isn't funny how we always think we are not as bad off as we really are. Now I am watching Biggest Loser last night thinking those were some big people and here I am heavier than they are such a joke. But this week I am trying not to get discouraged that I can't weigh in yet I am just trying to stay on track and not worry about a number right now.

I used to be a daily weigher when I was on Medifast before. Now that I am restarting, I don't have scale in my current residence. I'll probably weigh about every 2-3 weeks. I know if I follow the plan, I will lose weight. I don't need a scale to tell me so.

Honestly, your clothes and other people will tell you when you are losing weight! Good luck from one fellow restarter to another.
