Hi, all! I am starting Day 2 (again!) on Medifast. I had tried it out in May of this year, but I wasn't ready to really commit and only made through three days before I sent the unused portion of my shipment back. Now, things are different. I found myself with a horrible back ache last week that took a week to heal. That was the final straw for me. Oftentimes, I was stooped over trying to walk as the pain was great, and I realized that my weight was only making it hurt worse! So, I vowed then and there to jump back on board with Medifast and do things right, no matter how hard things get.

I love biscuits, but I would not let myself entertain the thought of eating just one. Yay me!.

As I was trying to fall asleep last night, I started to make a list in my head of all of the reasons I wanted to lose weight. When things get kind of tough, I think it's important to revisit these reasons to help pull us through. Here's the list that I came up with. Let me know your reasons for wanting to lose weight. This could be a powerful motivator for all of us!.

1. I don't want to need someone to help me put on my socks and shoes like my dad does..

2. I want to be healthy and not have to live with diseases caused by obesity..

3. I want to be able to exercise more than five or ten minutes without feeling like I am dying..

4. I want to be able to buy any clothes that I want without having to make a special trip to a plus size clothing store..

5. I want to be thin for the first time in my life!.

There you have it! I'm sure there are many other reasons that I am forgetting right now. I look forward to hearing from all of you!.

My reasons for losing weight are:.

Lowering my cholesterol (just being on Medifast for 2 months and dropping 15 pounds shaved about 40 pounds off my cholesterol, I'm now in the normal range!).

Reduce my waist size from 40" to under 30" (I'm at 36" now).

I want to feel comfortable in my own skin (aka nekkit!).

I'd like to be able to shop in any store/boutique without worrying that people will think I don't belong there.

Get my sexy back, I've not felt sexy in any way, shape or form for poor husband!.
