I am back....in a BIG way!

3rd time is a charm? I certainly hope so.

As of 12/26/2013 I am back on the Medifast diet.  This now marks 3 times I have gained "the weight".  And this third time I am starting 10 lbs heavier then my original starting weight.  I thought I would be sadder about it, but I am really not.  I have a strange sense of peace about it all.  I know what works to lose weight, I know why I regained weight.  I just have to make up my mind that I am worth doing it again over. If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times...no diet, surgery, workout plan or change any other change of lifestyle works if you go back to your old habits & way of eating. If you eat again in the same way that made you fat, guess what? You will get fat again.

Here is a bit of my history, if you aren't familiar with my story:

Round 1
In September of 2010, I started Medifast for the first time. I was doing Medifast 5&1 diet alone, with the support of Take Shape for Life.  From September 2010 until March 2011, I had lost 75 lbs.  I started at 310 lbs and ended, still 60 lbs from goal at 235 lbs.

Round 2 
By March of 2012, I had regained 55 lbs, weighing in at 290 lbs.  Being very scared of hitting the big 3, I started Medifast again in March 2012.  By September of 2012, I had lost 60 lbs, bringing my lowest weight to 230 lbs. Still 55 lbs from goal.

Round 3
In December 2013, I crossed the line into the big 3 again.  As of Christmas, I weigh 320 lbs. That is 10 lbs higher then my Round 1 starting weight.  I am now 145 lbs above my goal weight.  I have to start over 

My husband cracks me up. With a sorrowful face I was just telling him the stats and he said "Now is your chance to show everyone how awesome you are. You can be like Rocky and come back even stronger!" 



Round 3 Official Stats:
Starting Date: 12/26/2013
Starting Weight: 318.6
Weigh In Days: Thursday
Jean Size: 24
Tops: 3X

I have about 4 months of Medifast food in my kitchen and a very supportive husband.  I have no reason to not accomplish this!!

I will commit to post a blog every Friday, with my weekly updates, what I have been eating, etc.

Thank you for your support!!
