Have a better attitude

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

Today is day 3 of my new attempt to get the weight off. I am utilizing Medifast mostly because I had stockpiled a good 3 months worth (some of it expired which I'll chuck if it's bad) and this stuff isn't cheap. I am the type that needs some structure or I will just never get at it. So, don't mock me because I am going to get through this food. Today has been perfect on plan so far. The last two days I had little cheats but kept the calories down good. Success on Medifast or Optavia is very much dependent on not cheating, especially in the beginning until you get that fat burn going. I am trying to do this coachless also which they don't recommend but I don't want to feel bothered by anyone. I can't wait until I see some results. My friend who has a great attitude said "losing weight is the fun part, it's the maintenance that sucks!" 70ish pounds to go and this is so much fun.

About inauguration day, I am not sad today as much as I am just afraid. There are only two real emotions which are love and fear - everything stems from those. I love this country so much and I can't think of one person I hate. I am sure I don't know everything about everything as they say but I just want success, love and peace for all. Those are the things that I will continue to pray for. I am going to work on my attitude.

Last night I laid in bed realizing that I am returning to work in just over a week after having this 12 weeks off. I wish I didn't have to go back. At 60, I have 6.5 more years until I can retire and I know it will go by quick if I keep the right attitude. I love the patients and love being able to bring them cheer. I am a Medical Assistant at a busy cardiology office at a hospital. The stress level was really high when I started my leave and I don't expect much will have changed upon return. I will get my second vaccine two days before I return. I expect we will be wearing masks still for a good long time. I hope they get better and better at getting the vaccination distributed to everyone. I know a lot of folks are anxious.

    I hope that your program jumpstarts the journey to healthier living. Maybe you can start finding nonprogram similar foods. The doctor's always say 90% is due to what goes in our mouths. Chin up!
