I left off yesterday where I was parked in the driveway of my house just sitting in the car depressed after my doctor's appointment trying to decide what I should do and would it even matter in the end. After a few minutes of feeling sorry for myself, I went into the house determined to find something else I could try. Later that night while sitting on the couch watching tv with my husband (my fiance at this time), I saw a commercial for one of those weight loss systems that send you prepackaged food, you know the one that says “Lose up to 13 Lbs & 7 inches in your first month” At this point I was so desperate for something that would work, I jumped up and ran to my computer to sign up. I couldn’t believe how much it cost but I was willing to pay whatever it was because I really wanted to find something that would work and if I was being cheap I might miss out on something that could really help me. So I went ahead and paid them their money, I picked my food and anxiously waited for it to arrive. I couldn’t wait to get started, I was so excited and hopeful.
A couple of weeks went by and it finally arrived. It was packaged up so nicely everything that needed to be refrigerated or frozen came separate in little coolers with dry ice, and all the nonperishable items came in their own box. I unboxed everything and put it in my freezer. The next morning I started eating only the prepackaged foods they sent me. Some of the foods were pretty good. I mean I couldn’t believe I could have cinnamon rolls, double chocolate muffins, and pizza and I was still supposed to lose weight. Unfortunately, I couldn’t only eat those types of foods. The dinners were the worst though, most of them tasted like cardboard and it was so hard for me to force myself to eat them. I was determined to give this an honest try so I choked down the meals even if I didn’t like it. I did this for 3 months in the hopes of seeing some kind of results. And let me tell you, I didn’t lose the 13lbs or 7 inches in my first month, I didn’t even lose it in the 3 months I was on it.
Now after the 3 months, I decided I was done wasting my money and canceled my membership. If I remember correctly, I didn’t even lose 5 lbs I was so fed up with these gimmicks. I decided then and there I was so done with all these weight loss systems that claim to work miracles, or so I thought.
