I took a break from Medifast. Not because it was hard (which it was), but because it made me sick. It was a shock to my already fragile digestive system (doctors words not mine). I have cut back on doing it as strictly as would be suggested and am following my doctors orders. A typical day now looks something like:
9:30 Medifast Shake
11:30 Medifast Shake/Bar/Puffs
1:30 Lunch (Salad, Sandwich, Soup) basically no fats
4:00 Medifast Shake/Bar/Puffs
7:00 Dinner (Salad, Sandwich, Soup) basically no fats
It's working so far. I haven't even bothered weighing myself. I know that it's working because I don't have to deal with the awkward fealing of my food digesting.
For now, this is enough. I may move towards going back to the 5&1 with a strict Lean and Green, but for now, I'm content.
In other news, I am very proud to say that I stood up for myself. I will keep it generic, but for a little over 3 years, I have been dealing with a difficult person at work. I won't say who, I will only say that I work closely with the person and she is female.
I am a very strong willed, independent, stubborn person. I have never been the one to take "abuse" lightly. And what I have had to deal with the past few years can be characterized as verbal and emotional abuse. NO MORE. I stood up for myself. I said NO. It is not ok for someone to think because they are in a position of authority they get to treat people this way.
I stood up for myself. That statement makes me really proud. I'm even more proud that I handled it professionally, and with restraint.
I'll keep you updated on what happens with everything.
