Might be leaving Medifast !!!

Postby Tiolazz » May 19th, 2006, 5:34 pm

Well I am so bummed out...

This has been the day from H**l..... :twisted:

My hubby, the wonderful kind man that he is, called me at work at 3pm today to tell me that he had been laid off. I was actually in the middle of placing my next order for product, thank god he called me before I submitted the order.

right now I am so depressed and upset. I could not place my order and I have enough supplements to last me through next week and until tuesday of the week after, but unless he is able to find something really quickly, I will have to go off of the medifast plan until we can figure something out. Just cant justify spending the money for the product right now, I don't even make enough on my own to pay the regular bills, not to mention groceries, gas and the like.....

I gave up my 6 figure job about 2 years ago because the stress was killing me and he actually became the bread winner in our family after 7 years of me being the main income earner. It has been so nice too... but now it looks like I might have to try to find a job back in sales, which I don't even want to do....and don't know after all this time, if anyone would even hire me in that kind of position.... I just don't know what we will do now.

Well, I am just going to pray that something happens soon and would appreciate it if everyone else would do the same for us. This is really a strange feeling for us, never been in this predicament before and it sux...

Thanks for letting me bend your ears, and I will keep the board posted on how things go... it is definetly going to be a crappy weekend at my house...

Terri - I am so sorry. I will definitely pray for you. I was in the same boat back in 2003 when I was happily being the stay at home mom for my 4 and 2 year old...then my hubby hurt his already ailing back and POOF! life as I knew it ceased to be. I had been out of the work force since 1998 (teaching) and out of the business world since 1993. A Christian teacher doesn't pay so I had to go back to what I knew for 15 years - Contracts Admn. I was so scared because it had been 10 years since I was in that "life" and I was older - who would hire me? Well, through much prayer I actually got called from my present employer who saw my resume on Monster dot com. I know have been there almost 3 years and have been supporting my family - we may not have the best of everything - but we definitely have alot and alot to be thankful for.

I pray that you won't have to go and do something you don't want to do; but know this, the ferverent prayer of a righteous man availeth much....God knows your heart, He knows what you need and He will always provide.

Hugs and prayers to you right now.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil 4:13

Hi everyone and good morning....

I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and offers of encouragement and help.

I am really still in a little bit of a cloud this morning and still trying to sort through all of this, cause it really hit us by surprise. We are good savers, and my hubby already has some prospects, but times like these are really scary.

I have read your private messages, and will reply to each of them, I promise, but just not decided what to do yet.

I had a really bad evening, duh, ate mexican food and had a margarita, actually planned on drinking a ton of them, but since I have had no alcohol in so long, one kicked my butt. I was so upset I really wanted to just pig out, but thanks to a much smaller stomach, I couldn't, and even though I did not eat much, I felt like throwing up after I ate. Ended up just crying all evening, so once again I proved that I am an idiot, thought I would feel better with food & drink, and got just the opposite. For an old wise woman, I'm sure not very wise.

the really weird thing is that this morning, I begged my dh to get the scale out for me so I could see how bad I screwed everything up last night and I am at 199. Finally, I am under 200!!!

I am not going to weight again tomorrow for roll call cause I have a feeling that last night will come back to bite me later on, but I am taking this small, very small loss and running with it..

Again, thank you all so very much for your kind words and offers of help, I have never ever been very good at accepting help from others, so if I decline, please do not think me a bad person or feel that I am looking for excuses to discontinue my diet, because that is the farthest thing from the truth. I want to have this weight off of me more than you can imagine, (well that probably is not true, because most of you probably feel the same way I do).... but, I just need to do things on my own, always have and always will. I will try my hardest to figure out a way that I can continue with medifast until goal and hopefully with God's help that will happen. <img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_10.gif' border=0>

Thanks again, and keep us in your prayers....

:( I am so sorry to hear about your situation. We've had that happen to us twice now in our almost 20 year marriage... it is tough when you are going through it. We have always found that we end up better on the other side of it all. To us, this shows us how God's hand has been guiding us along -- for our good and His glory. Not always an easy thing to see when you're in that storm...

I hope you don't vanish from us -- we are here for you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers -- confident that you will be back on your feet in no time! :hugblue:

First off, you and your family are in my prayers. There are other ways to keep on track until you are able to get more product and you can't leave us here without you. Once a part of the family, you are always part. You have to keep posting and I'm sure we can help keep you motivated regardless. :hug:
