So I'm pretty excited to get going on this plan.. My mom has done amazing so far and I really just want to kick this weight to the curb and being MAINTAINING! Something I have never done on this yo-yo diet lifestyle of mine. It's frustrating I feel like I never get to my goal weight and I start gaining and not paying attention to the scale and over-indulging.. Not this time! I know how to maintain. I have done it when I get in plateaus. And when I get in plateaus it is usually because I stop eating good on the weekends. I eat good all week and then I get out of hand on the weekends, restarting on Monday. And so I know that at least I will be able to have my slight indulgences once in awhile, and stay at my maintained weight. PLUS they also have a transition/maintanence program to help you transition back to 'normal' foods. I am READY!
So Take Shape for Life is by Medifast, they provide the foods, you provide a "Lean and Green" and eat some protein and vegetables. Eating every 2-3 hours. This is great for me because THEY chose the food for me. I'm not great at making choices with my food on my own. I don't have time to cook dinner, that's up to my husband. So this plan will fit in perfectly with my work schedule and my life. I will eat dinner at the table with my family, but might not have the not-so-healthy and over processed food that they might be having due to my DH not really having the time or experience in the kitchen to make healthy meals. If I would be able to get home earlier than 630 pm it might be a little easier on us to eat healthy dinners..
I will keep you posted on how I do, and in the meantime if you are interested in learning more just head on over to www.kathyclose.tsfl.com

SOOOO anyway other than that, things have moved forward a lot more with my leg! I now wear the metal bar leg out in public, and I got a sleeve cover for my leg instead of getting it painted. I found a website where I could get a custom cover made with the design of my choice.. My dad will be painting the metal bar a 'color shifting' color- it will change from purple to green to blue depending on the light. So I have come so far this summer.. From never wearing shorts, to wearing shorts but feeling like I should just go for it and wear a metal bar leg, to going BOLD with this cover and basically screaming 'LOOK AT ME!!!' Haha!
