The answer is Yes, but you might want to make sure and wait for another person to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Medifast guys because they can assist you better...

This is a journey you need to take by yourself and for yourself! I have lots of support and still feel alone in it , just because I am the one taking the risk and changing my life. I am excited, scared, happy, all at once and we understand..

You will do good and you will be such a happy , healthy you and get ready to change more than your eating habit!!!.

Remember to breath and take time to visualize yourself a healthy weight, doing the things you may not currently be able to do... normal labs and excellent health, feeling sexy, having people not recognize you, shopping with the "normies", fitting into theater & airplane seats,.

Wrapping.

A bath towel all the way around you, not having to ask for the seat bely extender,.

Walking.

For miles comfortably,.

Climbing.

Stairs without gasping for breath for 30 min afterwords, wearing shorts,.

Dancing.

All night.... the list is endless! Yup, you're making an irreversible decision to change your life and it's damned scary. Choosing to put yourself under anesthesia & the knife is scary. But continuing to slowly (or maybe not so slowly) kill myself was the scariest option for me. You've chosen to save your own life and I haven't met (in person or on line) anyone (even those that had major complications) who regrets their decision to have bariatric.

Surgery.

Check in here frequently - lots of information and support. And when the Hebe jeebes get intense, do something to distract yourself... taking a walk will do wonders, arts & crafts, a movie, a really trashy book or funny movie. We're here for you!..

It sucks that you don't have support at home, that is so important.. at least you found this place though, so you have SOMETHING. Just do what you've been instructed to do, and vent here, and hopefully your family & friends will come around. Hang in there, you can do this. Just remember why you're doing it and who you're doing it for and stick to your guns..

Lots of good advice here already. I echo Kelly You're doing this for you. It's not about anybody else. If your family can't handle it, that's their problem. Tell them that. Make sure you are in control of what's happening to your body.

If those who love you want to manipulate you away from this, you have serious relationship problems. I wish you peace. Just before they put me under, my thoughts were of my personal struggle and overcoming it my own "Invictus" and "Love." I was scared, but it was comforting...

Hey Powro3: I live alone and so I'm pretty much on my own. I had a friend to took me to the hospital and brought me home, but I've been able to care for myself without any problems. You'll be fine. I'm praying that you'll have as smooth a recovery as I haveabsolutely no problems except occasional constipation! Keep a smile on your face. You'll be thrilled with your decision to have this.

Don't worry about the 3 weeks of liquid, and struggling...that part will be over in no time. Some have pain after, I had none and took no pain killers after I got home. It will all be WORTH IT!!..

It is natural to feel scared. You have arrived at this decision for a reason. Yes, this is a drastic step for losing the weight, but this is for you. Make yourself prority. Most of us would do it again to get to where we are. But please do not fool yourself into thinking this cures all.

If you use it right it will get you to where you want to go. But weight gains are possible to if you don't follow the rules. Good luck on your.

I felt like I had no support before.

Surgery.

Too! I felt like I could read my husband. Did he or didn't he want me to do this? He acted like it was a burden to take the day off from work to take me! Well since.

Surgery.

, and 50 (well 49.5) pounds off, he is ALL over me! Literally! I couldn't ask for anything more! I haven't discussed it with him, because I have my suspicions that he was nervous that I'd want to.

Leave.

, or he was jealous, or I'd just be too darn hot and he don't want to mess with it! LOL Just sayin, maybe he will come around! But I also don't know your situation! Good luck to you!.

I'm a single parent also and I do have my 19 yr old daughter's support but the rest of my family (mom, sister, nieces) they don't really agree with me doin it but they are NOT the ones.

Walking.

Around in pain most of the time, short of breath, can't fit into booths, can stand for longer than 3 mins I could go on and on but this is for YOU and only YOU know how YOU feel so at this time I think we can be a little selfish and make this about US!!! Wishing you the BEST!!..

Update, I am home from the hospital, the pain being this intense was something that I was not expected. Thank god for pain medications. So far my husband is supporting me...which will hopefully stay that way. I guess we will see. This liquid is so far so good...but 3 weeks is a long time. I am not thirsty so I am having to force myself to drink the required amounts....Just glad the.
