I have not posted in some time. I don't post if I have nothing to say. I do today, so here goes. It was November 1 yesterday. That is the one year anniversary of starting Medifast. I lost 70 lbs by May and just seemed to stop losing weight. It wasn't because of Medifast. In fact, the only way I have been able to maintain that loss is due to Medifast. I admit, it is half heartedly that I have done this, but just the same, I have stayed within 5 lbs of my loss for about 5 months.
Coming to the year anniversary made me stop and think. Is this where I intended to end this? Yes, I feel good in my body 70 lbs slimmer, but no. I didn't achieve the loss needed for the breast reduction. It is something I want in a big way. I took the summer off. I sipped my gin and tonics on the back porch all summer. I travelled to New Orleans and ate what I wanted. I had countless other opportunities to eat, drink, and be merry. And I did. But, I did it with a modicum of control as evidenced by the maintenance of my weight.
So, it is a new month and a new day. I am off alcohol and on the diet full fledged for the next month. I am making a one month goal to start. It seems more doable than not. I lost 4.5 lbs yesterday. Yeah.
I know I have changed. I don't do some of the old behaviours and I will post about that another day. If you are struggling with commitment, won't you join me for a month on your plan? Let's see how far we can get in a month. It is still pre holiday and there is time to make a difference.
