The Ups and Downs of Losing Weight…

For me it’s been more than a three-year long journey… I have been dieting all my life!

This time around which began just over 3 yrs ago at first, I was on fire and life was good. I was losing weight and feeling better. Then like most dieters I hit the “wall” just after my first year.

Hitting the wall from a weight loss perspective is typically when and were most folks toss in the little white towel and give up. 

To me that was not an answer. There was no way I could do that. If I did quit that most likely meant, I would gain back the 56 pounds I’d lost and gain some on top of that!   So I did what I had to do… I suffered and hung in there, all the while hoping I’d get back in sync.

I did get back in sync but not doing the new program Weight Watchers was offering. For the life of me – I just could not stick to their old Core Plan either…

I stepped back.  

In May on this year (2009) I started on my new path of eating small meals all through out the day. Healthy food from Medifast.  It’s so easy, I like the food,  and this has helped me to control my portion sizes.

The chart below shows my week-by-week weight. There is an 18 month period in the middle where I was STUCK! Then I got introduced to Take Shape For Life and Medifast.  You can see how well it works.

In 22 weeks I’ve seen amazing results in how I feel, the smaller clothing sizes I’m wearing ,and of course the scale is looking better too!

My outlook has changed.

My way to eating has changed for the better.

And I am able to reach out to my family and friends and show them the way.

Life if good!
