From a fortune cookie a couple of days ago.
I just placed a Medifast order for my mom (out of my own pocket). It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been hoping (praying!) that my success on the program would motivate her to get on it herself, but she’s made up a ton of excuses not to.
“It costs too much… I won’t like the food… I hate chocolate… I can’t give up fruit.”
So I asked her if she would try it if I took care of the first two weeks and walked her through it. Held her hand, even if only virtually, as she’s 1500 miles away. And she accepted.
The thing is, she has type 2 diabetes and was just put on insulin injections that cost a fortune. I know if she lost some weight that she could have better control of her blood sugar and maybe even go off insulin. I just know it. I read the “Medifast for Diabetes” guide on the Medifast website and am confident it’s a safe and doable plan for her. She’s going to see a doctor and a nutritionist anyway, and will likely do the 4&2&1 plan to ease into it (4 Medifast meals, two Lean & Green meals, and one healthy snack) so she may just be able to keep her beloved fruit in there after all.
Helping her will help keep me focused.
I feel like things have slowed down a bit. I’m going back to logging my food as I think I’m having a bite of this, a taste of that more often than I realize. I haven’t been sleeping well or drinking enough water either, and that is so important!
