First question I got is Do you know of a website that has Medifast Diet safe recipes? Many thanks for any response. Another question... So I didn't listen..

I let myself cheat for one day and then it kind of snowballed from there. I even tried other diets during the last 4 months and they didn't work for me. I know I can do Medifast for a long period so I'm here now till goal!.

I gained 15 pounds in four months. The cheats aren't worth it. So I'm back. I saw a show this morning about a mother that was 600 pounds. Her addiction to food was unsettling. She was in total denial.

Told my husband I'm back on it so he'll help keep me on the straight path untill it gets easier. He was never as happy with me as he was when I was on Medifast because it was the only diet I was true to for more then a couple of weeks and he saw how excited I was. Last time I was on it for 3 months and lost almost 50 pounds..

I come to the conclusion that maybe I'm just a slow loser but along as the scale keeps moving down I will tell myself I'm doing good. Hopefully I will start believing it. I'm one of those the people that want a quick fix! Gotta learn it's a lifestyle change. I don't want to be a 600 poound mother!!!..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Thanks for coming back and talking about your experience. We see people here all the time talking about how there's no harm in cheats, looking for a reason, looking for an excuse - I think it's worthwhile for people to tell the truth when it derails them and screws them up. Most people just don't come back, or come back with a raft of excuses, or, worst of all, pretend that it just didn't matter. There might be about two people out there who cheat successfully, but for most people it's not a success strategy..

IMX, the issue is less with what we eat and more with WHY. Do you understand what happened? What's your plan to deal with these issues when you get to T&M? I've found that actually losing the weight was kind of easy, compared to coming up with a food plan that I could live with for the rest of my life. So far so good, but it's been a difficult thing at times to live with the fact that I can't go back to eating like I always did without gaining the weight back. I'm going to have to stay on top of it forever, and that means changing everything about not just WHAT I eat, but WHY I eat...

Thanks, Corbie - these are wise words that all of us in the weight-loss phase need to take to heart!.

And thanks, Marie, for posting about your experience! I'm with you - I want to be a healthy and happy mom ... and someday grandmother and great-grandmother!! And like Corbie said, we have to make permanent changes to our lives if we want to not just lose this weight but keep it off!.

Deb..

I know it can be frustrating if the weight doesn't come off quickly... but really... any week where the scale is either the same or less than the week before... even if it is just a tiny bit less... is a step in the right direction. Whereas cheats and going off the plan lead to increasing weight....



Maybe you ARE a slow loser. But you're still a loser! (That sounds so weird to be saying as a positive thing, but you know what I mean!) Focus on what you ARE achieving instead of what you aren't. And celebrate little mini goals, if needed so that you have some positive feedback from yourself!..

Losing almost 50 pounds in 3 months is not slow. Really, what other plan can get 50lbs off in 3 months?.

Very few people can cheat and continue to be successful. Sadly, it can snowball. You made a good decision to come back and get on track again..

Best of luck to you!..
