Actually, *I* can't handle the truth. But here it is anyway. As of June 2011, I had lost 98 pounds. Between then and about January of 2012, I gained 18 pounds. That is the truth. And tho I eat like a rabbit (a wino rabbit, but stillllll), those 18 pounds have decided to stick around.
It's pretty typical to gain weight after a drastic diet like Medifast. In fact that's why my original goal was to lose 120 pounds, not 100. So that I had some wiggle room...about 20 pounds of wiggle room to be exact.
So, hey, turns out I was right about needing the wiggle room. Awesome. I guess the good news is that I gained that 18 pounds back over six or seven months and I haven't gained any more in the six months since. But I've been trying to lose that 18 pounds and can't seem to swing it eating greens and protein, 1200 calories a day, and running a bit. Irritating. Now I'm thinking I should just really go on medifast with a 40 pound goal so that I can get to my original goal with staying power. How crazy does this shit sound? C R A Z Y.
Look, I know that some of you will say, "hey you should just let it go" and "you're fine the way you are" etc. But, I'm in charge of me. I want those 18 pounds gone.
