Why oh why is this so hard for me this time around? I can make it a few days, maybe a week, then for some reason my resolve slips and I end up tail spinning into diet nightmares. I won't give up! I will keep trying! I do feel lame coming back...yet again...on day 1. But I refuse to quit. So lame as I may be, I am back on day 1 again of Medifast.
Shane (my wonderful husband) and I had a heart to heart talk this weekend. We are both at our heaviest points and last time we did Medifast together, we knew were were at an emergency point. Well this time is strange....we are actually more active now but at our heaviest. Running after 3 small kids all the time forces us to be active, but by night we are beat. Back hurts, knees hurt...generally just wiped out! At our size it is an emergency to lose this weight! We need to be healthy for ourselves but also for my sweet nephews that we are caring for. We have big plans for this summer! We are going to put in a new patio and finally, after 2 years, have a new sod installed so we can have a nice grassy retreat in our backyard. We want to enjoy BBQs (on plan!) with friends and play with the nephews in the grass! We want to relax on the patio at night, sipping iced tea. But when my butt is so big it is hard to fit in a chair, this is just a dream.
This leads me to wonder....why am I letting my weight stand in front of the life I want? So what did Shane and I do to motivate us? We booked a vacation in Las Vegas at a resort this September! From today until September first, that is 32 weeks exactly!! I won't be where I want to be in 32 weeks, but I can be a heck of a lot closer!
