Back to work...

Today my wonderful Spring Break came to an end... back to work! I didn't think I was gonna make it, though. I have been SO SICK since returning from Florida. It got progressively worse until last night I thought I was going to have to go to the ER. Body aches, fever... I thought I had the flu. But some time during the night I turned a corner, and was able to make it to work today.

The scale said 283.4 this morning... 18.8 lbs lost since starting Medifast on March 5. I have lost the slight gain from falling off the wagon in Florida, plus some more. Yesterday it was tough to eat ANYTHING, but I got everything down except for my last Medifast meal. I didn't wake up until noon, so everything was off track. Today at work hasn't been so bad. I was confronted by DONUTS this morning and didn't succumb. My co-worker had the NERVE to set the open box right beside me to tempt me! I kindly closed the top and ignored.

My goal is to be 20 lbs down by Friday, which will mark the end of my 3rd week on plan. That will only leave about 10 pounds for me to lose to get back down to my smallest weight (270) of last year. Then it's just downhill from there, and I am so excited! I am actually dreaming of smaller clothes for this summer!
