Weight Loss Report Week 13: My First Setback

Disclosure: I receive free product in order to evaluate and comment on my experiences on the Medifast Program. Medifast products and the Medifast Program are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or illness. Any medical improvements noted while on the program are related to weight loss in general, and not to Medifast products or programs.

Well, I guess it had to happen eventually. It seems The Pumpkin Curse has caught up with me, and I’ve gained back the two pounds I lost last week.

I’d be lying if I said that seeing 149 on the scale again wasn’t a little disappointing. But I’m trying to use it as motivation to get back on track. It’s not like I had completely fallen off the wagon, but I definitely had been slacking off on my water intake, and eating cheat foods a little too often. For the last few weeks, the 80/20 rule was more like the 60/40 rule.

On the bright side, I’m still under 150 pounds, I’m able to bench press more than my own body weight for the first time ever, and I’m finally below 20% body fat. Now I just need to get refocused, and continue building on those successes.

I’ll be on vacation next week, so sticking to my plan could be a bit of a challenge. Fortunately, the Medifast meals are extremely portable. Hopefully, between the meals and all the walking and swimming we’ll be doing, I won’t have another disappointing week.

Thanks for reading and keeping me accountable. Check back next week, when I’ll be updating you from sunny Florida!
