I hate dieting. Let me say that again. I, Retrobetty, HATE dieting!
Now that I've put that out there, let me share my latest endeavor with you. About 8 weeks ago I saw a commercial for Medifast and decided to learn more about the program. I did research day in and day out. After about 4 weeks of obsessing over the plan, I decided to take the plunge and placed my first order. After all, it worked for other people, it could work for me.
My first box showed up and I began to go through the prepackaged meals. I swear, as I pulled each package out, my anxiety went up a notch. Am I supposed to survive on pre-packaged, just add water meals? Alas, I had committed to this. $387 of commitment to be exact. So I gave it a go. I wanted so badly to love Medifast. I wanted to believe in the program, to be skinny in 8 months as so many others had done, but I just couldn't swallow the food!
I am not a picky eater, but Medifast and I didn't mix. After about a week, I was tired, sick from all the soy, starving, and thinking, there has got to be a better way!
I told my husband that I wanted to return the Medifast food. He told me that he believed that I could lose the weight just by eating healthy and that he would support me. That was all I needed... good bye medifast... hello Sparkpeopel!
I will say the upside of medifast is my body is now detoxed of sugar and carbs so I feel more equipped to take on a healthy eating regime at home. I know Medifast is for some people, and more power to those people, but it's just not for me.
So, for hungry girls everywhere... I want to say I admire you and the hard work you are doing. Weight loss is no easy business. I want to find success just as much as the next girl, but we all know it takes time, failures, and the ability to get back up. I want to be skinny, and if you want to be skinny too, lets be friends, work hard, and support each other. Hungry Girls can be skinny too!
