Another month has passed (so quickly!). November was tough. I spent three solid weeks sick, had sick kids, did a week and a half of Medifast with a 2-day detox review in the middle, and got through Thanksgiving. I did lots of PT and was in way too much pain. But the month is gone and we are on to a new, fresh month.
Weight-wise, it was mostly a maintain. I weighed 219 on November 1 and weigh 218 today, so that's a one pound loss for the month. I did get up into the 220's while I was sick, and then last Sunday weighed 220. So I did drop 2 pounds this week. I had gotten down to 217 a few days ago, but maybe those few extra slices of cheese I ate last night weren't such a great idea. Ah well, 2 pounds this week and 2 pounds last week... I will be satisfied with 2 pounds a week. Maybe I will eventually get a big 'whoosh' so I can get back under 200 ASAP. Lots of water today to flush out the system.
Tonight I am making a new recipe so if it turns out good I will be posting it later. I am actually super hungry already. My cravings have not gone away. I just have to get through it and if past experience is an indicator, soon they will go away.
