Official Weigh-In: Week 1

Postby Tiffany38 » April 9th, 2007, 10:07 am

Down 9.2 pounds. :D Yeah!

I know that is a good amount for week 1 and I am doing the full-fast right now under my dr. supervision, but..... I have such a deformed mental set with losing weight. I was actually disappointed when I calculated it and realized it was under 10 pounds!! How in the world will I be accepting of 3, 4, 5 pound weight losses here on out??

I think it must be some form of self-sabatoge -- never be happy with what you get or something! I know with other diets, this is exactly why I fail. "Oh, I did all that and I **only** lost 5 pounds? I might as well eat this piece of whatever!"

I did set a goal of 20 pounds for the month and so that is almost 1/2 way there. And that is very encouraging. It does looks good on paper but mentally, it is an issue that I always battle in addition to battling my weight. UGH.

But I do have to say that I keep going to the Studio forum and seeing all of your before, during and after photo's as REALLY kept me going strong this week. You ALL have done awesome and I hope to be out there on the studio forum soon and hopefully will join such an inspiring group of folks!

Recognizing it is half the battle. Now, when you start to have those feelings, you can avoid letting them take over.

Medifast takes time and patience, but the rewards are grand!

I hate to tell you, but you'll have a week with NO losses. It's just a matter of time, so be prepared.

Congrats....:)

Or even gains, with total compliance. It happens.

Exactly! That's when I will really have to be strong and stick with the program and keep reading and seeing everyone's successes!

Funny how we spend years and years, and some of us our entire lives, always being overweight and then expect to be thin in only a matter of weeks! Very unrealistic expectations, I know!!

And hopefully before I get to a week where I either don't lose or even gain I will be stronger and able to wade thru those waters and accept that that just happens - end of story! :?

I'm trying to think **Long-Term** success this time, not just short term!

Tiffany...I understand how you feel. I am struggling with that as well. But....I am settling back for the ride and following the program! The way I am trying to look at it is that it took me years to gain it...what is a few extra days, weeks or months to lose it? Good luck to you! Don't beat yourself up to much!!!! ;)
