The plan... (Jennifer)

I have decided that I need to hit the gym and start toning my muscles.   Unlike intense cardio, weight lifting I can do while on Medifast.  I should be taking advantage of my gym membership.  So thats my plan.  I look forward to getting back into the swing of things. Once summer comes and school is done for my daughter I plan to get back into the actual weight training classes they offer.  I havent been able to go to them because the times conflict with school drop-off. Those classes were the ones that REALLY made me feel the muscles that I didnt even know I had.  The classes were so tough that there were many times I literally could barely walk for several days after.  This time I plan to use lower weights when starting to avoid that if at all possible.

So thats it.  Thats the plan.  Physically I still feel like something isnt right with my body.  But I cannot put my life on hold like I have for the past several months(like 6).  I am trying to have faith.  And today I realized that by me doing Medifast and getting back into the gym that I am finally making an attempt to move on.  I also realized that  as of my last weigh in of 164.9 lbs that I am only 5 lbs away from my first goal...to get into the 150's.  I have not been there since college more than a decade ago and I really look forward to it. 

Today's reason for losing weight:
*to accomplish my goal and see the 150's!  Its so odd how sometimes it feels like its impossible because I have been trying for soooo long to get there.   And other times it feels like its only 5 small pounds away and I am so close!   I much prefer to think of it being so close and feasible!!  What's 5 lbs when I am already down 65 right?  Thats the mindset I need to have to succeed.  No more poor me negativity.

Today I am thankful for:
*I found a lump in my breast.  I called the dr, got in right away and they did a sonogram right in the office.  This literally all happened within 3 hours of me making the call.  I am thankful that it turned out to be glandular tissue, and also that I was able to get some answers so quickly.  I really wish the whole healthcare system worked like this.  But for now, I am thankful that it worked that way for me today!

There's so much to say...first, I'm so glad everything is okay with that lump. What a blessing!

I'm sorry you're still feeling that something's not right with you. I've been there and know how frustrating it is. For me it ended up being my gallbladder. I knew it months before it finally had to be removed.

As for the 5 pounds...just hang in there. It's taken me all year to get off the 10 pounds I've been working on. I only have to lose another half pound to get there, but geez...4 months!!! Slowly but surely I'll get there. And so will you!

Be blessed
