ApplePieDreams posted a really cute comment on my blog yesterday. The blog was titled Waffling and she posted that waffling is better than pancaking. I definitely agree. And yesterday, I almost pancaked in terms of my dedication to getting through just one month of Medifast. It has been a week. I have seen weight loss of about 7 pounds. In my mind, however, I have seen this kind of weight loss before and have not been able to sustain it so it just doesn't have the same impact.

Yesterday was really tough for me towards the end of the day where all I could think of was what I was missing in terms of what I usually eat. On Medifast, I am drinking shakes and eating bars with some microwaved cookies and brownies thrown in - don't get me wrong, I am not knocking Medifast. It is a good plan if you can stick to it. I am just not sure I can. The habits of a lifetime are hard to break.

I eat healthy most of the time. I just eat too much of healthy. And after working all day, I am too tired to measure. emoticon Maybe I should get one of those plates that are divided up into three sections with the biggest section being for veggies. Little off-topic there.

So, yesterday was tough. I got through it and today is better. Just finished my morning cappuccino, looked for, found and put a bid on sectioned plates and posted to my blog. Now it's off to work. Go me. emoticon

    I couldn't maintain Metrecal back in the day. Weighing and measuring isn't hard at all for me now that I am used to it. I use recipes that list ingredients by weight and volume, so I just follow the directions, divide it up, CLEAN MY PLATE (none of this "leave some of the food on the plate), and freeze or give the rest away to my son. I have come to see my scale as a super time saver. Took some time to get the habit, but now I do it without thinking.
