Take It Off: Medifasting on Vacation {Week Sixteen}

Medifast | Week Sixteen

This week we packed the kids up and hit the road to the Pittsburgh.

The kids weren’t the only thing I packed! A week’s worth of Medifast: bars, shakes, crisps, brownies, soft bakes and pretzel bites were packed up. I vowed when we planned this trip that I would let my plan fall by the wayside just because we were on vacation.

I even packed my good friend, the scale.

I wasn’t chancing weighing myself on another scale. And I’m glad I did. I was greeted with a nice {almost} 2 pound loss when I stepped on it yesterday morning. I couldn’t believe it. Because, if I’m being honest, I let the car ride get the best of me. I gave in and munched on some goldfish and Hershey Kisses. I was bored and I reverted back to old habits.

I promised myself that I wouldn’t beat myself up over that little bump. Every one has bumps along their weight  loss journey. We’re only human. But as soon as my feet got out of the car, I said “No more.” I would stay on plan.

I know this week will have its temptations. There will be some trying times but I can do this. I am armed with an arsenal of better choices and I know what I need to do.

Starting Weight: 186.2 lbs

Month 1: -13 lbs 
Month 2: -7 lbs
Month 3: – 4.3 lbs 
Week Thirteen: -1.7 lbs
Week Fourteen: -.9 lbs 
Week Fifteen: -1.9 lbs {157.3 lbs} Total of -29 lbs!

Fingers crossed that I hit -30lbs this week!

Goal Weight: 130-140 lbs
