The Trip So Far.

     Today is a good day! As you can see on the updated weight ticker I have off to the right side of this blog  I have lost a total of 41Lbs. What it does not tell you is that I have, so far, gone from a 52" waist to a 48" waist pants size! I had a stack of pants in my closet from birthdays and Christmas from the last few years and up until now they would not button and plain old would not fit! Just 20 more lbs and I will be down into the 200's!

     I have to admit this week is a challenge for me. Thanksgiving is just a few days away and I am really hoping I can just lock myself in a room and not even think about the good food being shared by all! Its hard when you have little ones and you want to set a good example for them in regards to table manners. I was really hoping we would have thanksgiving at our house that way I would have plenty of space to just escape from all of the good smells and loud chatter. When I get stressed I tend to eat / snack to help deal. To an audio engineer silence is very refreshing.

     No matter what, I need to stay focused on the goal. 20 more pounds to get under 300! I just need to remember to plan accordingly, and stay true to the road laid out before me. As long as I follow the Medifast guidelines I will do just fine. Its important to not just say, "The heck with it!" and do your own thing. I don't know about you but falling off wagon's does not sound like much fun! Have a happy Thanksgiving and be healthy!
