Week 8 weigh in (Jennifer)

I was so ready to get on the scale this morning because the results were going to be the deciding factor of how to proceed. If I gained or didnt lose then I would start exercising while on MF. If I lost a number that was an improvement from my 1-2 lbs per week then I would continue to lay off the exercise and let the plan work for me in this way. SO.......I got on the scale and just about fell off when I saw the number. Very little exercise this week and I was down 4 pounds! In one week! Other than week one this is the biggest loss yet. And it wasnt just 4 lbs that was awesome...it brought my weight to....179!!!!!!! I havent been in the "7" territory in well over a decade. I was so happy inside. And it wasnt just the weight loss, although that is fabulous. I was happy to have figured out the key to how to make this plan work best for me...or my sweet spot for the time being. Apparently I need to just step back for a few weeks and let the plan work for me. I will pick up the exercise at a later time when I need to shake things up again. But I will continue to walk here and there and I wont give up my zumba since I love it!

Today's reason for losing weight:
*I am going to be boring and use the same reason as yesterday because the fact that I want this for myself is still shocking for me. I want to run a 5K. I will put these plans on hold for now though. I dont want to extensively train myself for this while I am taking in so few calories on Medifast. But the main importance here(for me) is that my mindset has changed and I WANT to exercise reguarly in "the real world".

I'm glad that you figured out how to make the plan work best for you. That is so good. Keep it up. Wish I could do Medifast too. I need something super structured. Like you said, weight watchers is good but you do have room to cheat and I think that is my problem. Although I don't eat garbage and I don't eat a lot, still having issues with the weight coming off. Ughh....
