remeber me????

Postby carshe(sheila) » March 1st, 2007, 8:40 am

Hi everyone. I don't know if you all will remember me or not. I started medifast in January of 2006. Made it to the 40 lb club, and then dropped off the face of the earth. Life had become so overwhelming, closing my tanning salon in Hawaii;which by the way, never sold. College classes, and the biggest change, moving. I am living in North Carolina now. My Marine Corps hubby got orders so here we are. With all of this happening, now I find myself not in the 40 club anymore, not in the 30 club anymore, not even in the 20 club. I have only managed to keep off 12 of the pounds I had lost. I keep asking myself,"How did I get back to this place that I swore I would never be at again?" My only rationalization is stress. But the one thing that I am absolutely sure of is that I am not happy. I had a good supply of Medifast in my kitchen that I brought to NC with me. I had a banana pudding this morning. So it begins again. I look at so many of your inspirational results. So many of you have really hung in there and are doing AMAZING!!!! I am going to do the same this time around. I'm back, and more determined than ever to accomplish this once and for all! No more whining and no more excuses. We only get 1 life, and from this point on I want what is left of my life to be all that it possibly can be.

Just thought I would contribute a piece of history to help you some!

Ok, I guess its time to quit procastinating and post already!!! Ok, here's my top ten reasons........

1) To be in the best shape of my life by my 34th birthday this September.
2) To feel comfortable enough to wear a bathing suit...I mean I live in Hawaii for crying out loud!!!
3) To feel as comfortable in my birthday suit as my hubby obviously feels in his!!!
4) To be an inspiration to my friends, family, especially my own children, that they can acheive their goals.
5) To not feel like a beached whale at the annual Marine Corps Ball in my formal gown!
6) This one is already happening(yay!!) To have people think that my 15 yr old daughter is my sister instead of my daughter, and I have to explain.
7) When I go home to Missouri for Christmas, not worry what everyone is thinking of me.
Not wishing I was pregnant, just so i would have an excuse to wear maternity clothes.
9) Having enough energy to do things
10) Having self-confidence

Glad you are back and good luck. 5 time zones must be different. :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.

yes, 5 time zones was a big adjustment at first. We spent a month in Missouri visiting family before we drove the rest of the way to NC. i love North Carolina tho, I lived here for 5 years when hubby 1st came in the corps. I know that living somewhere that you are unhappy could have alot to do with weight gain. Dont get me wrong, Hawaii is was soooo far from family, and I just never really felt at home there at all. I love NC on the other hand. So I think this change is going to be very good.

Glad you are back! Maintaining the 12lb loss is no disgrace. You are now back on track. If I had gotten back on track years ago (with whatever plan I was on), I would not be here today! So getting back in the saddle is important and you deserve credit for that. Welcome back! :D
Start 8/24/06
Lost 34lbs and over 30 Inches. Regained 9lbs. Down 4lbs on vacation in Jamaica - yeehaw!
Waiting for Doctor's clearance to restart MF.

Hi, Sheila, I remember you, too. I'm glad you're back - and even if you gained some back, at least you returned before you gained ALL of it - plus some extra, which is what you usually happens when you give up on a weight-loss program.

Welcome back!!

You have been missed!
I am happy that you're back. I remember what grief you were having in Hawai'i, what pressure you found your self under...
Hopefully all will be more settled now.
Best wishes in NC and with moving forward in the MF zone!

Welcome back Sheila! There are several re-starters here. We understand the struggles of sticking with it and getting to goal. But, it can be done, so let's do it.
