Erica, your post made me :lol: chuckle outloud. In reading the entire thread, pretty much, all I did was restate what everyone else (including you, my dear) had already put forth! :) Good to know we're all on the same page!
Here's to our mutual success! :buddies: --Diana

starting again woes

Postby hawklady » January 22nd, 2008, 11:48 am

I have not been here in a LONG time, but am at the same place: starting over, as you are. I lost over 60 pounds, and kept it off for almost almost 2 years. During that time, I had to replace ALL my clothes for a much smaller size, and of course everyone I know noticed and commented on my loss. So my sliding backwards now is very scary and also very noticeable. (I had a 4-day family wedding, followed by a vaction in Europe, and then the holidays. Each of those events led to eating WAY off any kind of plan, and I was terrified of getting on the scale. Yesterday I did, and the number read: 27 and 1/2 pounds back on. My clothes are tight, and some don't fit at all. The only 2 positive things: I am not 60 pounds over, and I do KNOW what to do. And today is the 2 year anniversary of the first day I started Medifast before.
I am going to do it again, back to 5 and 1 and lots of water. For me the key last time was ZERO TOLERANCE. No cheating, no temptations in my house and no days off. I will report in, and maybe we can help each other. I don't know why it's so much harder to start over, but it is.

Welcome back. We can all do this together.

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.
