The holiday season was a little rough on me this year. Things have never been the same since my dad passed away almost 7 years ago, and now that my mother in law is gone too. Financial troubles add to the feelings of loss and despair. Because of it all, I sort of slacked on my diet. Okay, I completely fell off that wagon for a couple of weeks. Food is my best friend when I’m feeling down and my will power just went out the window. I’m human. I make mistakes. But it’s a new year and I’ve made some weight loss resolutions that I plan to keep! I’ve partnered with Medifast for this post. As always, opinions are my own.
Luckily, I’ve gained my will power back and I’m consistently on the Medifast Go™ plan again. I’ve learned to turn instead to my favorite foods from Medifast and that seems to be working well for me. A typical day for me looks something like the image above, with a few more quick meals in between.
Morning starts off with a Chocolate Chip Pancake. It surely are one of my favorite meals from the Medifast Go™ plan and I’ve found that I do so much better if I stick to my favorites. Shortly after breakfast, I’ll grab a snack to hold me over and help me to not crave something else. The Apple Cinnamon Crisps are pretty tasty!
Then I’ll do something quick for lunch, like soup and have a Crunch Bar later in the afternoon. Mashed Potatoes or soup are on the menu shortly before dinner and then once dinner time hits, I’ll have one of the Lean and Green Meals, like Beef Stew with real chunks of meat and vegetables.
So far so good, and I’ve got plans for a happier, healthier me in 2018. The Medifast Go™ plan is helping me along the way. I’ll be checking in early next week with my final results for y’all and if you’d like, check out my journey from the beginning by reading the following articles:
