Where'd the Time Go?

Has it been almost a week already since I last posted?? I don't know where the time went! I have been out of town on a trip this week, and am actually still in a hotel right now! So there won't be a weigh in today (nor was I near a scale this week). My eating's been nothing great, for sure... but when I get home I an planning to do a partial juicing... not a juice fast... and not a carb festival either. I am planning to get some extra greens and other veggies in by making juice once or twice a day and also eating lean proteins, healthy fats and whole vegetables. Still want to stay off the grains, and will limit the fruit to 2 servings a day (in the juice, to make the green stuff palatable). Depending on how I feel doing this, I may continue it for more than a few days or might just stop if it makes me feel bad.

My other decision this week is to be completely off soy. I cut way back on soy a long time ago by not choosing bars and shakes that are soy based; however, with my new sampling of Wonderslim and Bariwise meals I have been eating more and more soy because their bars are SO good. I am going to give the rest of my soy meals away or trade them for whey based meals, and just use whey shakes when I need a quick protein boost. Whole foods the rest of the time. I know this doesn't seem like a big deal but it is for me. I have, frankly, been dependent on packets and bars most of the time since I started Medifast in 2010. I guess I got used to the convenience and simplicity of it. So much easier (for me) to have a shake or a bar rather than trying to think of something to eat with the right ratios of protein, fat, and carbs. The farmer's markets will be opening soon, making it easier for me to get back to a produce-based diet... whether that includes juicing or not.

Lyn, A friend pointed me to your page, I had lost 70lbs using medifast in 2012 and have gained 45 back off plan. It was nice having all the meals planned out, took all the thinking out of eating. Off Medifast all my old eating habits came back like a vengeance! How in the world do you stay out of weight gain mode?

Yay!!! I'm so excited to have farmers markets reopening for the season. Fresh local produce is the BEST!

Soy versus whey....I prefer whey for the taste anyway. :-)
