Drastic Measures

I have to be honest with you guys.  After all, that's why I started this blog!  I am not doing well with my diet.  I don't know if it was the surgery, or the medication, or the setback in not being able to exercise.  All I know is that I'm not doing well.  I have gained four pounds.  Four pounds! 

So here is what I am going to do.  As soon as I finish writing this post, I am going to the BistroMD website.  It's home delivery calorie-controlled meals.  For five days a week, I'm going to eat BistroMD food, giving me two days a week to try to eat properly on my own.

I am not beating myself up about this!  As a matter of fact, I'm pretty proud of what I have accomplished so far.  But, by the same token, I know myself.  And I am in....actually have been in....very dangerous territory.  I'm tired of counting points and no amount of pep talking to myself has been able to convince me that I still want to do that right now.  At least with prepared meals, I know I will be getting good, balanced nutrition.

The plan is to stay on this program through Christmas and then take another look at what is going on.

Maybe I've been enjoying cooking too much!  Wish me luck.



  1. I'm sure you can attibute any weight gain to "all of the above". Everything about your current eating plan changed at the point of surgery and we all know what meds can do to ruin a good weight loss run! I will be very interested to see how the BistroMD works...and to be able to take a break from counting points may be exactly what you need to kickstart further losses. I'm with ya...just hoping you won't stop attending the Tuesday social hours :0)

    1. Vicki, you couldn't get rid of me if you tried!

  2. I'd be doing the same thing if I didn't already spend so much money pampering myself :-) Maybe I should rearrange my priorities!
