Thank you so much for your wonderful comments on my blog!! I just have to repeat something you wrote there, that I absolutely love:
"My doctor telling me I was obese didn't help. The weight watchers thing didn't help (although it might now!) Not fitting into any pants didn't help. People calling me "Fatty" didn't help.
In the end I had to decide that I was tired of what seemed like an endless yo yo. And it was up to me to find a REAL solution."
THIS!! This is so beautiful - it was my experience too!! Yes, I had a health crisis - but it was *ME* that decided, "I NEED to do this for myself!! I am worth the money for MediFast, I don't like where I am right now, I need to take a chance and try to be healthier." And when your head is in the game, it's not so hard. (Still a bit hard - hey, there is food temptation EVERYWHERE!!)
And yes, it doesn't matter the price - a crack addict will pay whatever to get his/her next high, as will a shopaholic or an alcoholic or whatever. An addiction is an addiction.
Thank you again for your wonderful story!! I am so happy that MF has worked so well and CONGRATS on being so close to a healthy BMI!!
I was never a person who liked drinking mixed drinks or the cocktails. Except margaritas. It just seems like more syrup, mixer, etc than actual alcohol. I prefer to drink straight up. Wine is my favorite but also I love whisky.
No! Not traveling at the moment.... Which is why I'm doing so WONDERFUL on the Simple Diet program now! (And when I placed my order for the book.)
That was quite the whirlwind trip for DH and me from 7/20 thru 9/30. Other than a few stops where we stayed a week, MOST of the time we were traveling every single day--or every other day. I can't take that long-term!
So happy that we're FB friends too! . . . s u s y . . .
