My closest friend has doubts.  She has concerns about my food choices.  You see, it is about my obsessive compulsive self.  I choose to eat the foods I like over and over.  Her concern is what will I do after Medifast?  I haven't given that much thought to tell the truth.  I don't know what I will do.  I have no plan at this point.  My focus has been entirely on losing and not maintaining when done.  I have had a long haul and I am not done yet.  I have 38 more to lose.  Probably 4 more months yet and maybe more.  I can't worry about that yet because my FOCUS is loss.  Maybe I should consider later, but right now, I just can't. I choose to eat foods I like.  I love the cheese puffs, soup, and bars.  It is really all I eat besides my lean and green.  I eat what I like.  I guess I don't see a huge problem with it at this point, but she is right about thinking about the future.  I need to start working on a plan.  Medifast does have a transition and maintenance phase.  I am going to read more about that.
On another note, I spoke with the scheduler today about the breast reduction.  It looks like it is a process.  The first thing they do is review my case to see if I meet the qualifications.  If I do, they will schedule a consultation.   They have people booked already for the next two months, so it looks like it will be August or September.  I worry I won't meet the qualifications.  I would be so disappointed.  I guess I would just have to see what it takes and do that to get qualified.  I wont give up on this.  It is just too important and I have worked too hard to see it fail.


  1. I have read that some Medifast dieters go on WW when they reach their goal. I think that is a great idea. Good luck on the consultation.

  2. Oh, I saw your blog name over at the Summer slimmin' challenge. Glad to have another blogger on board. Let's encourage one another to lose this summer! And I hope everything sorts itself out well for your surgery.

    Definitely sounds like a good idea to review what sort of transitioning plan Medifast has so you see what's ahead a bit.

  3. Welcome to the Challenge! Love the Churchil quote you have at the top of your blog!

    Don't forget to put up a badge to link back to the challenge, and outline the goals you have for the duration.

    Good luck getting your operation sorted :)
