Weigh in for this week is 211, a maintain since last Sunday. Since I dropped 4 pounds last week and 3 the week before, I am not terribly surprised. Hopefully the weight loss will pick back up this coming week.
This morning I had my favorite, occasional 'indulgent' Medifast meal: a Medifast pancake spread with a tablespoon of peanut butter and a spoonful of Walden Farms blueberry jam. Back when I did Medifast before, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter was on the list as an optional snack. Recently though, they took it off because it seems to be a trigger for some people. Nuts are still on the snack list, and I still use the peanut butter once in awhile since it doesn't trigger me. I have this yummy breakfast about twice a month, usually on the weekends. The Walden Farms jam counts as a condiment. Not sure yet what's for dinner... I need to take a peek in the freezer and find some kind of meat to cook.
Today is going to be a stay-at-home, enjoy the family day with some baking, decorating gingerbread houses, wrapping presents and playing games. I really need some down time and am looking forward to it. I might even have an extra cup of coffee or two! Maybe if we're lucky, it will snow.
I've gotten a few comments and emails asking if there are any Medifast discounts or coupon codes available. I emailed Medifast and this is what they sent me. I hope it is helpful to some of you.
