Today has gone pretty well. I have eaten when I was hungry. I ate a MF pancake at about 11:00 a.m. So lunch was later than usual. I had a MF shake (Orange Crème). I tried mixing it in the blender with just a littler frozen berries. I didn't like it and ended up just chugging it down, so I won't do that anymore. I had an apple with that.
I fell asleep mid-afternoon, after dropping my dog at the groomer. I woke up when they called me to tell me he was ready and was pretty hungry. I walked down to get him and came back and had my afternoon snack of a MF snack bar. By 6:00 I am more than a little hungry. Dinner is cooking and it is some tilapia and sautéed broccoli. We didn't make it to the store today, but I need to tomorrow so I will have what I need for my L&G meals. I made a little tartar sauce with some Miracle Whip Light, some grated onion and some sweet pickle relish. I will have that on my fish.
As I sit here, I am realizing that some withdrawal symptoms are probably coming on me. I'm not sure. I only have a little bit of the stronger med left, so I don't want to take it too soon. I will eat and see how I feel.
Honestly that did not taste good to me. I don't know if I am out of practice on seasoning things or what, but I had to push it down. I felt kind of nauseous. That's happened off and on the last few months. I ate it to fill my tummy. So far, I feel satisfied (with how full I am, not with how it tasted). Tomorrow will be either an off day or an off meal. Still haven't decided. :)
I've been reading my blog all day, back when I was on Medifast before. It is very enlightening. Gave me ideas for L&G meals too. I didn't remember a lot of that. I was getting a lot more exercise back then than I am able to do now. But the weight loss did help my pain then, so that is good to know. The thing is, I know that I worsened to the point of needing surgery while I was lighter. But it will still help. I want to read when my condition deteriorated and see what was going on then.
That's all for tonight.
