I finished the evening last night without eating outside of plan. In fact, I never had my last shake. But I had eaten a few craisins earlier, so that probably evened out calorie-wise. I know it sounds like I am falling off plan with the craisins a lot, and technically I am, but if that keeps me from having an all-out stumble, I am okay. I am eating few enough calories that I still have a good weight loss. Last time my carb cravings got pretty bad, the longer I was on Medifast. This takes care of that craving a little bit.
I am having such a hard time facing the shakes at the end of the day that I decided to start my day with one today, instead. That way my after-dinner snack is not something I dread. I will have to rethink whether buying shakes in my second shipment is a good idea. Or at least not 2 a day. Yuck. I am thinking about using Atkins shakes instead of Medifast. They taste so much better. I will have to study nutritional content first.
I need to be careful to drink my water today, so that is a focus. I will drink some down each time I go to the restroom until I have had enough.
I have now had my lunchtime shake, so I am done with the shakes for today. Yay! I also had some cuties oranges. Sometimes you just need something to get that taste out of your mouth. I don't really enjoy chocolate shakes that much anyway, even when done with the "bad stuff," but I have to chug th MF ones to get them down.
I am home now and have had my dinner. I forgot to thaw anything out, so Stephanie picked us up some salads at Chick-Fil-A. My, that tasted so good! She remembered to get me grilled chicken this time. I feel surprisingly satisfied. I bit later I will have my MF pancake and if I need anything else, I will have some celery sticks. Today has gone smoothly and I hope it finishes out that way.
I'm trying to get back to reading some blogs. I hid from those, too, last year. Which is silly because they probably would have helped. I just wasn't there mentally after my hysterectomy. I'm starting with Holly's blog. It always inspired me a lot.
That's it for tonight. I'm feeling pretty strong, so I think I will be fine (knock on wood). Over and out.
