Not such a great day for me

But I'm still hanging in on the program. Day five is easier, right?

'Night all :wave:

Morning!

It's snowing big, fat flakes here today. Luckily, I dont' really need to use my car...all I have planned is a walk with a buddy and cleaning my house.

Now if I remember correctly, day 5 is right around the time I start to get into the Medizone. Already, my cravings have been considerably easier to tolerate than when I was on Weight Watchers (where I became monster!) but I'm still looking forward to an even more comfortable program.

The girlfriend I'm walking with is thinking of starting Medifast. She only has 20 pounds to lose :shock: but it seems to bother her almost as much as my 93. I believe it's that painful for her, because I remember being there. And I have another friend who is in a situation more like mine. I'm dying to tell her about Medifast but I want to wait until she sees a change in me and asks!

Today is day one of my blood pressure medicine. It is a diuretic, which I understand is meant to force water out of my blood and ease the pressure. But doesn't my blood need the water? That said, water loss on my body always feels good.

Anyway, I have an excellent day plannned. Many cups of herbal tea and lots of loud music and even some dancing in my living room. And when it's all done, a house that feels good to be in again. ;)

So, I'm off. Have a lovely day, everyone. :D

In his journal, Mike was talking about a rush of energy he always gets on day four. Well for me, this happened on day five. I felt better than I have in months and months...probably since the last time I was on Medifast! :o

I hope I have a little extra energy today, too, as I have a massive pile of marking to do. I'm dragging it all out to my parents place, and my mom said she would help me with it.

My mom also made me a special soup for dinner. It's a bouillabase made with approved veggies and lots of different kinds of seafood. I'm a very spoiled girl. :oops:

Have a great day on plan, everyone!

And day seven: done!

I have lasted a whole week compliant. :mrgreen: This is huge for me. And I had plenty of energy on the weekend...enough to get my house tidied up and make a major dent in my marking and planning for work.

I'm back to my old sleepy self today. But even so, I'm feeling about one inch more hopeful. ;)

'Night all.

Day 9 and I'm still hanging in.

I managed to stay compliant at parents' for Sunday dinner. I have sailed by the treats on the coffee table in the staff room at work every day, and I have even agreed to bake my dad a birthday cake on Friday.

That's not to say throwing in the towel hasn't crossed my mind (several times per day for the last nine days!). I honestly don't know what keeps me going, because I still can't visualize long-term success. But at least I can rest in the idea that I'm pretty much doing all I can.

I've had a non-scale victory: some shirts I ordered online back in September that turned out to be too small...I wore one to work today!

Congrats on the NSV, Mavesse! Day one was not so great for me, but I'm still going to count it as day one and try again tomorrow. Glad that you're here - let's not leave until we reach our goals!

There's a pattern here: whenever I get to feeling kind of giddy about Medifast...like it's too good to be true, I fall off the wagon.

My slip wasn't too bad. I probably had about 250 calories, low in carbs, but it will be enough to show on the scale, I suppose.

Have managed to right myself. Had a regular lean and green (though after the slip, I strongly considered stopping at burger joint for dinner) and I'm just about to have my last supplement and go to bed.

But you wouldn't believe the mind games I can play with myself! The thoughts that went through my head after my off-plan snack went something like this:

"I just can't face another Medifast meal. I'll just have XXXXX tonight, and then first thing in the morning I'll be back on the plan."

And then I said to myself: "Listen, you're in Ketosis. If you go ahead with this, you will not be in Ketosis anymore. And there's no quick and painless way back in to the appetite suppression you've been enjoying. And in any case, a supplement won't be any tastier in the morning than it would be right now. Just hang on!"

So I'm hanging on.

Sweet dreams, friends. :wavie:

Aw, you guys are too sweet. I think I look like a Grade 5 teacher who's really glad it's Friday! :lol:

I'm sorry to report that I'm off the program today, for no good reason at all.

I think what got me started was reading about loose skin, and wondering whether it's true that if I lose the weight fast it will increase the problem. And then I started beating myself up again for the fact that I haven't been successful on a nice, slow loss on regular-old food on Weight Watchers.

The part of the program that I'm finding hardest right now is my lean and green. I just don't like meat or vegetables. I know...I'm messed. I have to just keep at it until my tastes change.

And in reality, I would take loose skin over this extra weight any day, and I have never been able to make it work on Weight Watchers, so I know I need to do this.

It's been a long time since I prayed, but I'm going to fall asleep asking for help getting back on track in the a.m. I can't keep messing around with "I'll try again tomorrow." My health is too fragile to pack around 90 extra pounds, and I'm wishing my life away.
