Medifast | Week 18
Let me tell ya a little story...

Last fall, Bob and I cleaned out our closet from top to bottom in preparation for Brynn's Baptism {and ya know how everyone peeks into your closets, right? No? ...is that just me?} We ended up donating about 6-7 bags of clothes to Goodwill. At least 4 of those bags were mine. They were filled with clothes that I loved, but thought I'd never wear again. All those "small" shirts and size 6 & 8 pants that I never dreamed of fitting into again. I just about cried as Bob packed them up in the back of his truck and drove off to Goodwill.

Fast forward to March 2, 2011- the day I started Medifast. I set my goal at 30 pounds, in hopes of being somewhat close to my wedding weight {or what I felt was "healthy" for my height of 5'8.}

I'm going to be honest with you now... I never thought it would
really work for me. I thought if I lost 10 pounds, I would be extremely happy. {Like literally jumping-up-and-down happy.} I mean, who doesn't want to lose 10 pounds?? That's one of the reasons why I decided to set my 3 reward goals for 10lbs at a time. It was always my intention to do just that... just try for 10. 30 is an overwhelming number... I always just wanted to concentrate on the next 10.

And here I sit, a mere 4 months from the day I began. A day that I had an incomprehensible number hanging over my head. 30.



I have lost 27 pounds on Medifast. I am a success story. And I want my clothes back from Goodwill, damn it. {I keed, I keed. Sort of...}

Congrats on your week and the total too! Even though you feel a little badly about the clothes you gave away, the best part is that you get to rebuild your wardrobe with new pieces! Yay for shopping! I did some cleaning out earlier this summer with this rule in mind: If I can remember that I owned it before I met my husband Mike(almost 6 years), it's out! It cut my post-baby summer wardrobe down quite a bit BUT now I pick out things to wear that I LOVE and not just like because it's hanging in my closet. Sort of less is more....and then I can shop to add in some cute new stuff.
