Medifast Day 118 -- Cravings

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

I got to wear my new leather jacket to work today.

I am so craving Thanksgiving food right now. Everyone is already talking about what to cook and I'm just literally salivating at the idea of mashed potatoes right now. I want a giant bowl of mashed potatoes covered with a layer of mac and cheese and topped with a final layer of green bean casserole. OMG.




Unofficially weighed myself just now at 5 PM and I'm at 141.2 lbs. Maybe with some miracle I will be at 140.8 tomorrow? Can I be naked on the scale? emoticon I am so bitter that my weight is counted at 5 PM in full attire. I mean, come on! Ugh.

I'm changing my weigh in's to Saturday mornings. The clinic where I go is located next to four separate shopping plazas and a mall. I am NOT going to be stuck in traffic for 2-3 hours near Thanksgiving trying to get weighed. Just, no. Plus, on mornings I'm thinner lol.

Yesterday my boss dropped a bomb on me that I have to attend this 2 day training 20 miles farther than I drive now with some random mandatory pizza party for team building. I was very highly upset. First of all, this training is a giant waste of time. Secondly, I just started a project that will take weeks and now I'm just randomly stopping for 2 entire days. Thirdly, I don't feel like driving so far away. And lastly, screw this pizza party. You would think that the entire world will instantly implode in on itself if we had one single convention, conference, training, seminar, or meeting without a freaking cookie or pizza or candy present. End of the freaking world!

emoticon I'm PMSing so hard right now. Last thing I want to do is workout. Ugh.

  Princess. I am so happy for you that you are losing the weight you want ... but also, sorry that emotionally things aren't going great. The reason you have done so well on Medifast is that YOU are in control, so you can be in control at the other events too. You can also use your lean and green meal any time of the day. So, at a breakfast restaurant you could have three eggs and a salad. At a pizza party, on the other hand, just eat one of your meal replacements and enjoy the company.

As to weighing yourself ... wear the same outfit every weigh day. On your scale, weigh yourself naked and then put the outfit on and weigh yourself. Every time you get weighed in after this, you will know exactly how much you weigh.

Please don't give up ... you can do it. I know you can, because I did.

    Do you have a scale at home? You could do a little test day, with a few weigh-ins with different amount of clothing to see how it affects the scale. This would just be something for reference, and is just an idea.

I know when I do my weigh-ins, I am wearing a sports bra and dancer shorts. It adds far less than a pound and thus would still give me a fairly accurate (as accurate as the Wii balance board can get) without having to get naked. It is also what I wear for when I workout at home, thus I an ready to switch discs in the Wii and do not have to go change.

I am craving thanksgiving food too, but I am craving my turkey spiral. I do not make a standard turkey. I take a boneless skinless turkey breast, spiral cut it, and fill it with a homemade stuffing-like mixture (veggies with some breadcrumbs), prosciutto, certain herbs, and sometimes certain cheeses. I roll it together, and put culinary yarn around it for it to stay rolled while cooking. All and All, turkey with a little bit of a pork product and veggies all in one.

    This food at work thing seems to be a Hubby's office is constantly having some occasion where junk food is involved too. I feel for you, it's not fair that participation in a pizza party is mandatory for work! You'll get thru it tho, just think how close you are to your goal and pizza won't seem worth it. Good luck with your weigh-in tomorrow! emoticon

  Hope you have a better day tomorrow. I do agree with you about having junk food at meetings -- why is it necessary! Just have water for everyone to drink and they can take care of their own food needs either before or after the meeting.

    Gosh, that sucks about work! I feel for ya. I know if someone was to put donuts in front of my face, the would be gone in a second!

That's weird that you are required to weigh in at 5 in full clothing. I guess the 5 o'clock thing is okay, since it is constant, but clothing weight can change BIG TIME!

Here's to seeing a good number on the scale! Good luck!
