Medifast Day 117 -- Mistaken Identity NSV

Monday, November 04, 2013

This morning I was walking from my office to the coffee and a coworker saw me and went "morning T!" And I kind of look at her and she realizes I'm not T. "Oh sorry Sofi, you look just like her!".

emoticon Wha.. huh... seriously?

Let me back up a few months to this past April when I started at this job. T is one of the girls that works in the same building but a different floor, different department. She is thin. I remember just staring at her like some weirdo thinking 'god, I bet she can just wear whatever she wants' and 'why can't I look like her'.

To be mistaken for her is like the biggest compliment I've heard all year. The people also getting coffee agreed at the resemblance. And I quote "she has the same body type". This.. omg. I can't even. I just stood there in shock. Me? Her?! Really?!?! OK, Sofi. Get a freaking grip. Stop freaking out on these people. They'll think you're insane. Just keep walking and get your coffee.

I was thinking about that strength training routine I was going to try this month and I kinda want to postpone it to after I reach goal. Hear me out. We all know that strength training is good for you. But I need to lose fat and pounds and very quickly. I'm just going to do straight up 1 hour sessions of cardio (elliptical, cycling, treadmill) 6 days a week until I reach goal weight. I feel like with strength training I will start gaining muscle mass and I don't need that right now.

Wednesday is the weigh in and I'll have to tell my counselor I cheated AGAIN. That makes 5 cheat meals in the last 4 months and 1 week. I see these Medifast before and after videos and they are all 'she never cheated' blah blah. Well, I did. Sorry.

YAY!! Congratulations! Everyone deserves compliments, and to feel good about themselves.

Cheating occasionally should not hurt too much... it is constantly cheating that can hurt. Just remember to not let it get out of hand.

    Yay for others noticing your hard work! Congrats :-)
Moderate strength training will help you burn fat quicker though, so you might want to reconsider putting it off! (says the chick who is utterly intimidated by the weight room at the gym... so take that with a grain of salt!)

    You're doing great, don't worry about the cheat meal....I tend not to believe people who say they have NEVER strayed from their diet plan. I think everyone cheats once in awhile, we all have some kind of weakness. All that matters is that you got right back on plan & didn't overdo it. emoticon

    I am postponing strength training until I'm done losing weight because I don't want to hurt myself and have a setback.

You have done great! Awesome that you were mistaken for someone whose body type you admire!!

    I'm not a doctor or a Medifast counselor but in my book 5 cheat meals in four months is not much at all! You're still seeing results, not just on the scale but by people mistaking you for your co-worker. Don't feel bad about the cheat meals.

Keep up the great work!
