Weigh In Wednesday!

Is it Wednesday already? Alas the calendar in my office tells me that it is. Not a bad day though. I am down 1.2 pounds. I had originally wanted to say 2 pounds but the scale read 221.8 today. Therefore I can't really say I lost 2 pounds (damn you integrity!). I am happy that I didn't gain and even happier that I lost something along the way. I am still trying to figure out the path forward. It is sure to be a bumpy road. However, I have learned that this is a marathon not a sprint. I will be dealing with this for the rest of my life. Now that I have lost 158.2 pounds, I know that I can lose the remaining 60 to 80 pounds. I know it won't be as fast if I choose to not go the Medifast route. Does it need to be fast though? Or should I learn to deal with food instead of bypassing my addiction? Pondering shall continue....


  1. The addiction issue is the hardest part (for me, anyway. That's actually what my last post was about).
    Maybe instead of deciding whether to finish up on medifast vs the 'old fashioned way', think about it more like... Would you rather just lose it, then learn how to handle the addiction when trying to maintain? or maybe take longer to lose (and maybe go up and down a bit on the way) but have things more under control when you're 'done.'? Just another way to look at it that might help... *shrug*

  2. Way to go on losing this week! I am excited to see what path you choose!
