Usually a mother's worst nightmare... I lost my child.

originally posted at my Medifast blog

Rest assured, I know exactly where my boy is. He's in bed fast asleep.

However, I have lost as much weight as he weighs. It's a happy accomplishment.

3 pounds this week. Total 41.6 pounds.

I also hit my first 10% goal and was able to add a bead to my bracelet for 40 pounds. It's a week of celebration. I'm not sure how I'm going to celebrate my 10% goal yet. I welcome ideas.

I'm finding that there are foods that I just can't handle eating. They might be on plan, but if they are in my house... watch out! Identifying them is half the battle. I love coffee. I only drink decaf, so it's not the buzz I enjoy. I love the flavor. Hot coffee with a bit of milk or creamer. During the first weeks on Medifast, I guess I missed where I could have half and half. I drank my coffee with hot chocolate or cappuccino. My coffee consumption went down, but everything was fine. Fast forward to last week when I had a pint of half and half in my fridge. The coffee flowed free. I'm not buying it anymore. But coffee at Starbucks has become a super treat.

My discovery of the week: I make the chocolate pudding in my MB blender with extra crushed ice and extra cold water. When it's blended it's like soft serve ice cream.


  1. That's fantastic! You can also really see a difference. Praise the Lord for your strength and diligence.

  2. Congrats Robin!
    and I love the idea of making 'soft serve' at home. yum.
    Cheering you on from up north~
    hugs to you and the family...

  3. Robin, I am so proud of you. May God continue to bless you!

  4. Hey, Robin, thanks for stopping by my blog!

    One thing I did to enjoy my coffee while I was on 5&1 is to have a shake for breakfast - french vanilla is my favorite. When I make it, I put aside enough to use for creamer in my coffee. Then I don't have to use up any condiments so early in the day.


  5. hahahah- you are creative :) and a stud robin- 40 pounds is amazing!!! bravisimo! glory to God!
