I am so happy that I found Medifast. It has helped me be consistent and not to cheat. I know I can keep the weight off if I just keep up the habits of planning and making meals as well as logging food.
I have just finished over two months and it has not been hard. Other diets I put myself on I would always give myself an excuse to cheat and then give up. I have had no frozen yogurt, no pizza, no candy bars, no chips and I feel a sense of freedom that I can walk past all that. I don't have that sugar/carbohydrate monkey on my back.
I do feel a sense of awesome because all those clothes I bought where I told myself I could where them if I lost weight look great! I have had to do some scavenging through my closet for these items!
It is getting colder and one thing I could not do in 2011 was find a coat that would fit me. I always felt so uncomfortable because they were so tight. I bought a 2x on Ebay because I was broke at the time and it did not fit. Also, I did not have any pants that fit and had to wear long skirts all the time. I have lost 71 pounds since then. I tried on an extra large coat at Macy's yesterday and it was too loose! I won't have to freeze this year or be uncomfortable.
Both my parents have passed away in the last few years. I know that they would be happy to see that not only have I beaten my alcohol and smoking addictions, I am on my way to kicking the hardest addiction of them all! No more emotional eating, no more eating because I'm tired, no more eating for any other reason than my body needs fuel.
