OK, so in hindsight, maybe the last Medifast weigh-in was a little on the critical side. But I am critical of me, not the program. But today, I am happier than a pig in a poke. I did go back to the basics and really watched the portions on the lean and green meals, tried (mostly successfully) to not skip any of the 5 Medifast meals per day and had what I think may have been my strongest week since I started the program. Down a big 6.5 pounds!
In terms of exercise, the only thing differently I did was a really long walk from my house to the downtown district and back–like 8 miles–to go to a festival. That was on Sunday, usually a day of rest.
But as I have said, I work on mental goals a lot. With this 6.5 pounds, I am solidly under the 240# mark, and more importantly, I am marginally into the “teens left to lose” mark. I always said that being able to say I have X teen more pounds to go would be huge.
Now I am going to treat myself to a large pizza–just kidding!
