Medifast Day 125 -- The Mandatory Pizza

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

So I was forced to attend this entirely useless training at work today 30 miles from where I live. Around 11 they ordered pizzas which arrived and everyone was forced to sit in the room. I didn't eat any pizza. Mostly because my stomach was still suffering from the whole wheat bread I ate last night at dinner. Then they made us sit there with the pizza for the next 4 hours. It was not a very good day for me.

A lot of people aren't familiar with the Medifast program and I haven't talked to my counselor in depth about it yet because I'm going to tell them I'm done this Saturday. Basically, after I decide I want to move past the "weight loss phase" I will then go into the "transition phase" where over 6 full weeks slowly integrate normal food back into my diet. This is fruits and sugary vegetables like carrots and eventually grains and bread that I haven't eaten in these past months. I will be eating their food still for these 6 weeks. I don't just drop off. I will lose weight during these weeks. I will be brought up to 1,200 calories in the course of these weeks. Right now I am still at 800 each day.

After 6 weeks of transition then I will move into "maintenance phase" which still requires weekly meetings and weigh ins until July 2014. This is a full year program. They will go over my food journal and re-adjust my food as needed depending on how my body reacts.

I'm feel like I am done losing weight and I am ready to shift my focus to non-scale goals. Last night I thought about what I really want. I started the plan and my goal was to fit into my clothes and I have. NOW I want to be strong. I have trouble opening most doors. I can't even do a push up. But I have to start somewhere that won't kill me. I ordered Jillian's 30 Day Shred. It's coming Thursday and I'm pretty excited to get into some sort of shape.

Wish me luck because I have another full day of training tomorrow. emoticon

    I hope your training today was not as torturous as yesterday!

Good luck with your new exercise dvd..I think my sister did that one & she said it really was a good workout. I wish I had room at home to use those on days I don't or can't go to the gym. I miss my yoga & pilates dvds :) I think it's great you have a new goal to get stronger & continue your healthy lifestyle. Glad to hear Medifast will help you transition to eating regular foods again. Congrats on this new phase! emoticon

    Congrats on making it through that training. Ugh. Looking at pizza for hours.

I need to start working out.

    I can barely get below 1800 calories a day... I do not think I could function on 800 a day, but everyone is different. I am also not going for massive amounts of weight loss.

I have not tried that video... I do not like most work out videos. I always feel like I cannot keep up, I do not have time to make sure I am in proper form, not enough room, or my dog tries to join in while on my feet. I wish you luck with it though.

    Yay! I am so happy (and jealous!) for you. I have the 30 Day Shred, it is great and gets you into much better cardiovascular shape really quickly. It is so hard to start for me because I know how intense it is for a completely out-of-shape person like me right now. I am going to get back into it here eventually because my idea that I can walk with the baby in the stroller went out the window due to the rainy weather and now the freezing cold. I have been for a few walks but not many myself while my mom watched the baby. I am excited to see how things go when you start eating food not from the plan.

    Good luck on the training! That sounded like it sucked majorly!

800 calories seems really low, and even 1200 can be low for some people. I know I have an issue getting calories, and I shoot for 1500, but usually fall into 1200, and I'm not losing weight because it's too little.

I am glad you got to where you wanted, and I am glad the program helps with moving into maintenance. Plus it seems with the way you are adding foods back in, you can determine if any of those foods give you issues. I know I can't eat bananas because of the sugar. Go figure.

I tried JM 30 Day Shred, and it's a good beginning exercise program, but to be honest, I like Ripped in 30 a lot better. Plus she doesn't do jumping jacks in Ripped in 30! Good luck with it! Jillian Michaels videos are some of the best I have found, so enjoy it!

And good luck again, with everything!
