Today was day 2 on Optifast. I woke up and weighed and I am down 2 pounds from yesterday. I also was motivated to workout on my elliptical machine for 20 minutes. Tomorrow will be the challenge of doing my drinks at work. I am tried and cranky so I am going to bed.

Today begins day 75. (one goal countdown at a time) Actually, I am more than half way through the day. I am trying not to stress over this but it sooo has to be done. I am afraid of losing my committment and making things worse. I keep telling myself the first day is almost done and I am doing fine. 21 days makes a habit...Just do it, every damn day, quit feeling sorry for yourself and just do it!
After tons of thinking and procrastinating I have committed to Optifast. I have signed up to do partial formula which is 4 servings of liquid per day plus one meal. Although, I have acquired enough of a collection to do full formula (6 servings) if I get super motivated. I have two goals set so far, the first is August 31st (75 days). I will be going out-of-state to visit old friends, some of whom I have not seen for many years. The second is when I go see my brother who is in the Army for his birthday/Thanksgiving in November (154 days). I did Optifast in December 2009 totally committed for about 10 weeks. I did really well but ran out of money. During the next year I put almost all of my weight loss back on. I am currently still down 14 pounds. I want to dig deep to finish this time so I never have to do this again. I want to lose approximately 74 pounds. I am hoping this new venue for expression will help make this time fun. Is that possible? Fun?
