About 3 years ago I was on a VLC of about 800 calories a day. I lost 25 pounds in 3 months...I was so proud and swore I'd never gain that weight back. Well, I gained that weight back plus 44 more. I've finally gotten in the right state of mind again, and I found Medifast! The food isn't the best tasting, but I can tolerate most of what I've had. But BOY! Temptation is everywhere. The first day of my diet (this past Sunday) my husband made a jello-pudding chocolate pie. YUM...but I haven't touched it. Tuesday, the girls in my office brought food: Gumbo, potato salad and Praline King Cake. Again, I did not waver. Today, they brought beef stew and crusty french bread. I ate my Medifast beef vegetable stew for lunch. I am holding fast, but my mouth is STILL watering. This is SO hard, but I know from past experience it will get easier in the coming weeks and that when the weight starts falling off I will be even more motivated to stick to the plan. Just having a weak moment.... UGH!
