Changes: Can be good. Or not!

I suppose it is time to share.
Last February I went riding and my daughter-in-law
took pictures.
I did not like what I saw.
Plus my back was giving me horrendous trouble!

Look really good at this picture....
Sissy is a BIG horse!
So was my Butt!
OUCH!
It took my horse to make me realize.
I was not happy!
I was not happy with my riding skills.
I was not happy with my self either.

I never owned a scale.
They were bad!
I never got any good news when I stepped on one!
Scales would ruin my whole day!

Well.....
TODAY...
I LIVE by my scale!

I started the Medi-Fast program and STUCK WITH IT!
I have lost 42 pounds since February 20th of this year.
That is an average of 10lbs a month!

I feel great!
I went from a size 18 pants to a size 12 and those are a tad to large.

I do have another 10 lbs to go for my goal.
It is going slower, and they say the last 10 is the hardest to get rid of.
But it is FRUIT SEASON!

I love fruit!
That is my candy!
So I portion control, and I have my bit of fruit.
I am still loosing about a pound a week or week and a half.
I am letting my skin catch up to my weight loss.

Here are some graduated photos of me.
I still don't have any of me riding Libby
except what is posted up top.
No one is ever around with a Camera when I ride.
But I will get some one day.
It is all GOOD!

Great job. What does the maintenance plan for medifast look like when you get those last 10 lbs? I've 31 lbs this year. My horse was also a motivating factor and my endurance and riding have improved from it. I'm in maintenance now and it is not proving to be a walk in the park and that is for sure. I have to add food slowly until the weight loss stops and yet not start gaining. Are you excercising too?

Congratulations! You should be very proud.

I have not started the maintenance part, BUT...I have added fruit! Only because I missed it a lot, and fresh fruit is on now. So I am not loosing as fast as I was but I still average about 1 lb every week and a half. I will need to call my coach to see about the maintenance plan.
