Remember last week when I said I didn’t miss junk food? Well, that was before my husband brought a giant ass box of Little Debbie’s oatmeal pies into the house.
Then Rita’s Water Ice, which is about 1/8 of a mile from my house, practically right outside my front door, was giving away free water ice yesterday.
Then there were the Herr’s Sour Cream and Onion chips staring at me from the top of the fridge.
That bitch Wendy keeps showing up at my house too. She stands out on the front lawn with Little Debbie, just grinning and sucking up Frosty’s.
Betty Crocker is in my basement pantry calling to me ‘let’s pretend it’s your biiiiiiiirthdaaaaay. Make a cake! MAKE ME! I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR ME!’.
These bitches are mean. But I am meaner. That’s right people, PMS has hit me hardcore this month and I am ready to throw down with that whore Aunt Jemima. If there was a Fight Club for food, I’d be Tyler Durden beating the cream filling out of snack cakes.
I’ve resisted them all. However, despite my best efforts, I have only lost one pound this week. And I am blaming the meanest girl of all: Mother Nature. She made sure there was no way I’d win this week. I’m a little disappointed because I had had so much success in my first two weeks. But I also knew it could happen. I’ve read many posts on the Medifast boards that there is a third week stall. In looking at everyone’s numbers I was seeing losses like .4lbs, 2lbs, .5lbs. I was hard pressed to find people with losses like they experienced in the first two weeks. However I am hopeful that, like those people, my numbers will jump back up during this week and the following weeks.
So I am a little disappointed but not really. I know that it was not a failure on my part or that the diet doesn’t work. It works. All you have to do is click through a few threads on the Mymedifast boards too see proof of that. If you are working it, it works.
I’ll happily take my one pound loss and be proud of it. After all, this is what I lost:
That is one pound of fat. Pretty gross. Besides, I’ve lost more in three weeks than some people do in months on other programs. If that’s not a testament to the power of Medifast, I don’t know what is.
So what is ahead of me? It’s time to start exercising again. We were told to hold off on starting an exercise regimen (unless we already had one in place). Now that I feel I have adjusted to the diet, it’s time to throw in some activity. To start, that will mean some long walks with Izzy and some sessions on the Wii Fit. Then I plan on going toe to toe with another mean girl, Jillian Michaels. I’m coming for you Jillian. You better bulk up, just look at what I did to poor Little Debbie.
Week three: -1lbs
