Although I have been concerned over whether my recent choice to add a few more calories to my lunch meal is the right one, I have to say that I feel so privileged and extremely satisfied after my lunch. I have been doing Medifast for over 12 weeks now and really the only time I struggle is around lunch time. I have always said that if I could eat something a little more "lunchy" I probably wouldnt feel like this plan is such a drastic change. To have a salad with a little bagged toppings that I love(about 10 carbs for 2 tbsp and 90 calories) and some nice grilled chicken for calories and protein leaves me excited to eat it and very satisfied when I am done. With the salad dressing I am eating around the same amount of carbs I would be if I were eating a MF meal but with just more calories and protein. I also have to say that my other digestive "issue" seems to be appreciating my change. I still have a sense of guilt and a cheating feeling which I am hoping to get over if the scale shows me good things on Thursday. I know I shouldnt put so much emphasis on the scale but I just want to make sure I am doing right by my body.
Today's reason for losing weight:
*to learn to appreciate the foods that are good for my body. Instead of always grabbing for the things that I was used to, I would like to learn to enjoy the healthy foods out there and feel privileged to be eating them. Doing Medifast has definately helped me to appreciate "real food". I was just telling Teresa the other day that I would feel so privileged having some fresh fruit or a yogurt.
Today I am thankful for:
