Things I miss
I was about this close to reordering Medifast food yesterday. But before I processed my order I went through my old Medifast posts from when I first started the blog. The first week was a huge loss of 10 lbs and every week after that I lost like 1.5 lbs average. It just seems like a lot of money and a drastic way of eating to lose a lb a week and not be able to exercise. My weight loss slowedand sometimes even stopped with exercise when I did that plan.
I miss being proud of my weight loss when I look in a mirror. I miss wearing a size 12. I miss feeling good. I am pretty sore these days. My body is not happy at this weight. I miss feeling good about myself. I miss feeling less self conscious. I cant even imagine getting in a bathing suit right now to get on our boat we bought last year. I miss shopping for cute clothes.
The only thing stopping me from all the things I miss is ME.
My husband keeps telling me to exercise. The last thing I feel like doing with my sore bodyis exercising. Be he is right. And I need to get over this confusion of what to eat, especially when I dont know the calories of something like a complex meal that I cant just look up online.
So I whipped out my WW stuff and will use that as a guideline. I think it will help. WW runs pretty much along the same lines as calorie counting except I get free fruit :)
I feel like I am grasping at so many options over the past weeks. But I really need to help myself out here. I am so unhappy at this weight. Only I can fix it. The warm weather is coming and I need to have a plan in place NOW so when its boat time I am not refusing to wear a bathing suit. Also, all of my warm weather clothes are size 12. I will having nothing to wear if I dont do something now!
I need to get some things at the store!
