Quick question: Do you know any good Medifast recipes to make with pasta? Looking forward for any comment. My 2nd question... Today I decided I would head down to the dmv and get my license changed over to show my new address...I have hesitated to do this but had some free time and recently had a haircut so figured what the hell. I still have another six or eight months before I reach my true goal weight so I might as well bite the bullet and do it right???..

When the woman took my picture she looked up at me with a look on her face that not only confused me, but also almost scared me. In NC they now do everything by computer, so the camera gets your photo, they send it to Raleigh, and in about a week, you get a license in the mail..

Anyway...your old photo comes up on the left, and your new photo comes up on the right. When my photos came up, it must have thrown the lady for a loop. cause she asked me...Ms Roberson, do you mind if I ask you a question? It's kind of personal....

I said sure, ask away....

She said..."Exactly how much weight have you lost? I started laughing and said, about 165 pounds now...she said holy shit!!!...lol lol.....

She said come here and look at this...

I walked around the other side othe computer, looked at my photos side by side, and started.

Crying.

Like a baby. it was like looking at 2 completely unrelated people. My face was so thin. I didn't even look like the same person anymore. all I could do was stand there and cry..

There are so many days when I question if any of this is working, and if I am getting anywhere. Then I see these pictures, and finally, for once...for ONCE, I can see it...I never see it. It was amazing to me, to see the difference..

Now I can't wait for my new license to come, so I can show them off at Christmas..

Man I needed that worse than anything. I needed that affirmation like you wouldn't believe..

It makes me really look forward to spring now....bring it on baby!!!!!..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Oh, Elizabeth. That is so great! Family and friends who see you often probably don't realize how startling a change you have made in yourself. It took that stranger at the DMV, looking plainly at the evidence, to show you the new you! So psyched for you. I'm telling you hon, there's love in your future!..

I'm speechless. What an awesome moment. And if that's not enough - it happened at the DMV???? WTF? Here you need to get an appointment to get an appointment. On the other hand, by the time they took your picture in CA - you would have been at goal weight. Enjoy every moment, I'm so happy for you..
