Thanks for all the offers!! LOL I really need someone to keep me on track
I feel stupid having done this before and having to do it again...but when I got to my goal weight two years ago (125) I was getting asked at least once a week when I was due or congratulated on my pregnancy...so at that point I said screw this and ate anything and everything I wanted....and that went on for the past two years...I don't know what my reasoning really was but it was really disappointing to get to my goal weight and be constantly reminded that my stomach was disporportionate to the rest of me...
So I'm back on MRC...this time I'll stick through stabilization (when I actually get back to my goal weight)...gosh what a dork I am to have gotten back into this position. Worst part of it is people would tell me oh you'll just gain it all back...and I did....I have such negativity surrounding my every move that I just need to hear from someone that doesn't think I'm crazy...anyone that I talk to about my diet thinks it's crazy....especially when they see 1. what i'm allowed to eat and 2. all the pills LOL...
But I live in the North East and there are no centers anywhere in my state or any states surrounding us...So I do mail order through Cary, NC. The girls there are nice
(I used to live near the Shalimar, FL center and that's how I started my relationship with Metabolic 10 years ago...the first time I did it before I got pregnant the first time)
Well anyhow, I've been 'weighing' in on my scale at home that has been stuck at 144-145 for the past week and a 1/2 and it's so disheartening. I did 7 days on preconditioning, day 1-4 yellow, and I'm on blue day 5...but I plateaued after day 2 on preconditioning...CRAZYness...but I keep telling myself that it's the right formula to just stick with it...but AHHHHHHHHH I just want to scream!!!!!!
Caren, glad to hear I'm not the only one that's done this more than once...I know what I did wrong...I skipped out on stabilization...I think part of my problem was that I stopped taking the All Day Weight Loss, MRC6 and Corti Trim to save on $$...funny part is I have sooooooo much stuff left over from two years ago that I can get 1/2 to my goal without buying anything...lets just hope the shelf life of these items is a VERY long time...LOL I'm willing to take my chances
15 lbs by July 4th sounds like a very good goal...I'm going to hop on board with that goal...I have my fingers crossed for you!!
Biju, Congrats on being 8lbs from your goal...seems like we're in exactly the same boat I'm just a few weeks behind you
when did you start MRC? I was hoping to be to goal in 6 weeks but after doing 2 weeks and already pleateauing I'm thinking I may have to extend my stay :0 Yesterday was tough I almost threw in the towel...wanted a brownie more than you could imagine...but made it through it and feel so much better today for not having gave in to temptation...When I got to 125 two years ago I actually fit into a size 4...I hadn't fit in a size 4 since I was in middle school!! Keep up the good work
Have you been exercising at all?
CMB, it is so nice to have a center to walk into...I've done this both ways now...once when I lived close enough to a center to walk into and then once on mail order....advantages and disadvantages....advantage...I can ignore a phone call...disadvantage...I really should take the call...so my personal promise to myself is to answer the phone everytime it rings
Keep me posted on your progress ladies
I'd love to hear more...
