Medifast Day 156 -- Off Plan

Friday, December 13, 2013

I just keep eating normal food. The holidays are making me slack, you guys. I'm keeping up with my exercise but I keep eating regular food. Last night I made breaded turk'y fillets with gravy and sauteed brussel sprouts in olive oil. It was delicious.

When I went grocery shopping the shelves were empty because of the bad weather in Dallas. All the produce was gone so I had to improvise for lunch today. I'm eating a chik'n taco. It's actually kinda dry because I don't have any sauce. I found one flour tortilla in the back of the fridge, added a Quorn cutlet, and lettuce/tomato. Lunch of champions...

Tomorrow is the company Christmas Party and I plan on eating dessert. Also tomorrow is another weigh in. I know I'm going to see a gain. I just have to try not freaking out. The holidays are throwing me off with all these darn parties. Now I'm told the department head is taking us out for dinner Thursday night. Sigh. I'm gonna be most likely going full Medifast the first week of January just to drop whatever I gain between now and New Years Day.

I think I've eaten enough powdered food to last me a lifetime though. emoticon

    I think that's a healthy meal...lots of brussels sprouts and some "turkey". I think if you see a gain this week it will be because your body isn't used to eating regular meals, not because what you ate is unhealthy.

I can't imagine having so many gatherings to go to lol. I would lose my mind! You're doing a great job handling it. I'm not even trying to lose this month, I am just trying NOT to gain. There is just too much "food stuff" happening this month & I know I cannot always resist. I think most of us will be re-committing to our plans come New Year's. Until then just do the best you can, don't make yourself crazy, and enjoy the holidays. emoticon emoticon

    I probably wouldn't have lasted as long as you to be honest. Giving your self a break for sanity is probably a good thing. Hope it works out.

I am having awful cravings for the weirdest things lately. Right now, it's gingerbread men.

Enjoy your dessert tomorrow! Sounds yummy!

    The picture doesn't look that bad. Your body is probably going to try to save a little more because of spending so much time on medifast food. At least it looks like healthy food.
Keep proportion in mind and everything should even out eventually.

Good luck with the dinners and holiday meals. Like someone else said, try for the healthier items first, as well as a large glass of water.

    Yes, the Holiday season can be quite a challenge.

This is where planning ahead comes in so handy! "Normal food" is where you are going to have to live someday. Planning ahead is a must. Or as my Marine Corp friends like to say, "Failure to prepare, is preparing to fail!"

Just some ideas.....

PLAN to have a big glass of water about 20 minutes before hitting the buffet line.
PLAN your first go through the food line to be all salads and different
veggie dishes. Fill up on the good-for-you stuff first. Less room for junk later.
PLAN on having healthy food choices on hand at home (in freezer or pantry) for food
emergencies! (I set aside at least one healthy portion of healthy meals I prepare
and freeze for days where I can't do any better.)
PLAN for the day when you will have to eat real food that you prepare, not portion
controlled, pre-packaged "diet" items. Learn portion sizes and healthy
This day WILL come!

Wishing you Joy and Success in all you do!

    That looks a reasonable meal to me. So what's the problem?

    At least it sounds like you are eating healthy stuff! Try to enjoy yourself a little bit. You have come a long way in a short period of time! emoticon emoticon emoticon
