Take Shape for Life

August 2, 2010

Well, for the four of you that read this…I’m back at it, as of today. I successfully managed to gain probably 75% of my weight back. But not all of it!!! 🙂 I will post more soon, just wanted to let you know I’m in pre-ketosis as we speak. I know it, my body isn’t aware yet. It is just patiently waiting for what it thinks is coming today, which is copious amounts of cheese, ice cream, peanut butter, etc etc.


Take Shape for life day 18

June 26, 2010

Not gonna get overconfident.  BUT, feeling pretty good on medifast right now.  I’m down to 200, lowest weight so far.  Feel like it is more natural now and its not as hard to resist stuff lately.  The hardest part in the last couple of days was when I was standing in line for the iphone and a guy came down the line…with a bucket of VOO DOO doughnuts.  A bucket of them.  Free.  That was tough, because it was 5am and they just looked like circles of joy, like the O in jOy.  10 more pounds to my goal weight.  Then it will be about finding a healthy balance and staying under the big 200.


Take shape for life, day ?

June 23, 2010

Honestly I can’t remember what day this is.  Its somewhere around day 15?

The quick update.

I am still doing this.  I have failed or went “off plan” 3 times.  All 3 times pretty major, but not as major as the first.  As a result, I have held pretty study at the 13 pounds down since I started. 

I have recommitted to finishing out my food without straying.  I have about a month of food left.

Keeping you posted. (pretty sure I’m talking to mainly my mom and sister but I’m glad someones reading)



Day 9. The day I ate.

June 17, 2010

So today was an interesting one.

We had a staff lunch, with AMAZING food.  Brauts(sp?), wonderful desserts etc.  I barely managed not eating, but had my orange creme medi fast shake and watched everyone delight in their food.  I saved my lean and green meal for the evening because my senior pastor was having me over for dinner with Alli and Mike and Lacy Giering.

We got there at 6, and I came quite hungry.  I skipped the appetizers and was prepared to have my 5 ounces of steak and a salad.  This went well. 

I sat at the table and watched Mike G. go back for 2nds and 3rds and taunting me.  Ron taunted me too.

I decided to grab just a little more salad and was gonna call it good.

Then it happened.  My switch flipped. 

I went back, loaded up my plate with a big piece of steak, a huge load of salmon, another full salad with the dressing I really wanted, and a piece of bread.

I then went back for thirds, another piece of steak, more salmon, more salad, more bread.

Then dessert.

Homemade ice cream pie.  Cookie crust, ice cream, homemade whip cream, homemade hot fudge.  2 huge pieces.  Unbelievably good.

So ya, needless to say, tonight I went “off plan” as they say in the biz.

I could not have picked a more enjoyable meal to do it with.  I am feeling quite good at the moment.

Tomorrow I go back on plan. 

Curious to get on the scale in the morning.


Shape for life day 8

June 16, 2010

Barely been home, not much time to post, but a quick update.

Still hungry.  But not as much and not as often.

Down to 202.   That was around 13 pounds for the week, without a doubt the fastest I have ever ever ever even thought about losing weight.  I wonder if you can lose weight in your brain??  I will begin to transition out of medifast carefully when I hit 190, which at this rate, will be before my medifast food runs out in about a month.
