Medifast Day 105 -- Week 15 Weigh In

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I slid down a green dragon tail slide. I landed in some soft pillows and looked up at the bouncy castle behind me. Turning my head I see the Las Vegas sunset shining through my penthouse windows. The strip is illuminated in beautiful lights. Im wearing a slinky black dress with tiny diamond studs. In my hands I see a bottles of champagne and Im surrounded by friends. You just know tonight will be epic. I raise the bottle to my lips and close my eyes

Then I wake up and stare at my ceiling in the darkness. Ahhhh crud. Ended right before the good part! Scumbag brain. emoticon emoticon

emoticon -1.2 lbs
emoticon Total loss is now 32.2 lbs
emoticon I'm still sick; now I have a cold sore

Now, if I was well and did everything I could and the scale still gave me a 1.2 I would be OK with that. But I didn't give 100% this week because I didn't have 100% to give with this cold. Every day I'm not losing weight costs me money. I spend $131+ a week on my program with counseling. Divided by 7 days I'm costing myself almost $20 each day I don't give 100%. I don't have time to take it easy. Granted some days I would forfeit that much to drink a bottle of wine.. hence my 4 cheat times so far. But that was by choice. No fun in being ill.

My counselor said to hold off on exercise until Saturday. Sigh. emoticon

I guess I should try and be more positive. It's just so hard when you're a bitter, grumpy, cynical person like I am. emoticon


No, that's not it...

There we go!

62 days till Christmas.

    Hang in there and let your body recover. Pushing too hard can harm your body.

When you are better you can exercise again. You still lost some weight while sick.

You will get through this. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Look at this way, if you push yourself when your sick, you're not giving it your all, and you'll only lose more time trying to recover even more. I hope that makes sense.

Feel better soon, and remember rest now, so you don't have to rest more!

    I know how thinking about dieting and money go hand in hand. If I'm not losing, what is the point.

I signed back up for the weight watchers thing my doctor sent me to a few years ago so I can focus on portion sizes and preparing food. I just got a response from the instructor and I will start back next week. We had a long talk about all the different ways to lose weight a few years ago and how most people gain it back, whether it is gastric bypass or what have you. Changing behavior is the only thing that will work long term. I think I am only ready now to listen to what was being said.

Unfortunately, being sick is a part of being human. Hang in there. Saturday is not that far away. emoticon

    You're doing great! You still had a loss despite not giving it 100% which is what is important. Once you kick the colds butt you'll be back at it.
