Don’t you just wish we could say, “I am going to lose weight”, and it just happen quickly and easily? Unfortunately, that is not the case for me. I so wish sometimes that this losing weight thing was easier for me. As I told you in one of my earlier posts, if I go off of Medifast, I have the hardest time getting back on.
Going out of town last weekend was not good for me. This past week I have slowly been trying to get back to being On Plan. I have come to find that slowly is not working for me. I weighed and I am still up 2 pounds from my epic fail weekend (last weekend). I am still down 6 pounds from my starting weight.
I have a new plan. Starting today, I am On Plan 100%. None of this playing around with the plan. That is not working for me!! I have to get serious about my health and the time is now. I have a family that needs me around and I feel like I am playing Russian roulette with my health.
I am going out of town this weekend but it should be better for me than my last outing. I will have a kitchen, and I will take all of my meals and plan all of my food. I will stay On Plan and I will have my family there making sure that I do so. I can’t wait for this week to be done so I can give you all a really great weigh in post and let you know how well I did with my weekend out of town.
I am starting a new tip of the week. I will usually put it in video form. This weeks tip of the week is one that I do regularly to help me remember how many Medifast meals I have eaten in a day. When I get my monthly meals, I immediately unpack them and divide them up into baggies. I put 5 Medifast meals in 1 bag so when my morning starts, I just grab a bag out of the pantry and when the bag is done, I know I have eaten all of my meals for the day. Here is my tip of the week:
On to better things. Yesterday was Mother’s day and I had a fabulous day. I woke up to one of my daughter’s bringing me breakfast in bed. We got to go to church and spend lunch with my amazing family. Then we got to go have dinner with my husband’s amazing parents. I was so glad I got to spend Mother’s Day with both of our families.
I got myself a Mother’s Day gift.
It is a necklace that says “I Have Faith”, that is how I feel on some days. I’m trying to believe it more and more. I want to have abundant faith in this journey and myself that I can do this. I am going to start telling myself this day after day after day until I start believing it with all of my heart. I will get there.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. We all need to rally up and take back our health. We need to start taking care of ourselves, so we can take better care of our kids and help them get healthy. Have faith in yourself that YOU CAN do this and YOU WILL do this. No one else can do this for you. I have such a hard time believing this myself but I try to constantly remind myself!!
