Got a question... Has anyone ever tried Medifast for weight loss? Does it work? Hoping for any response. My 2nd question... So I thought I'd share some things I have learned since having my GBS on Nov. 11, or rather mantras that keep me going..

-Listening to my pouch. The moment I get that full feeling I stop eating. No matter what I have left on my plateOr else I get nauseated super quick and feel like throwing up..

-Speaking of throwing up, we will never eat sugar again will we. Um, no, because we made that mistake on Thanksgiving and we spent the evening in the bathroom praying to the porcelain god..

-Other people Medifast food still smells good, and that's okay. Yummy smells are around me every day, fast Medifast food , pasta, treats. But, I've been down that road and I know exactly where it goes..

-Eat protein first. I love fruit and would be satisfied eating it all day, but I have to make sure I balance it with some turkey or something..

-Gulping drinks and taking big bites not anytime soon thanks. Gulping fluids hurts, owie, and I kinda look like a little bunny when I eat because I take tiny bites..

-Find Medifast food you like-I love dairy products(bring me the cheese and milk fairy please) and I love fruit.

-I still am not up to the amt of protein I should be at, and I am still under on the fluids too, but I have spoken to my doc and as long as I am going to the bathroom I just need to work on it..

-I have lost about 30 lbs, but I haven't lost a clothes size yet, and thats okay, because the little things my body is doing are awesome. For instance, I have a watch that always pinched my wrist, and now it's completely loose. My ankles are dainty (who knew). My tight pants, oh yea, they're loose. Incedently, I just realized, I may have grown out of this bra I'm wearing. I've been adjusting the girls all night..

-I am so lucky to have family and friends who understand and are there for me, even if they've never been overweight..

-I don't weigh myself everyday. I never have before and frankly I don't want to start every day with a stressor. In the beginning it was fun, but now, meh..

-One last thing. If I had to do it all over again. I would. In a heartbeat. Up to now, it's the most important life decision I've ever made..

Thanks for.


All and I.


In the coming year we all have exciting stories to tell..

Hugs, Theresa..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Theresa: I second all your mantras, except I haven't had any pain or nausea due to eating. I'm still trying to decipher my pouch's soft cues. Ah, well. Also, I'm down about 30 lb., too...

Sugar has pretty much been my only real problem. So as long as I.

Stay away.

From stuff that has added sugar I'm fine...

Thanks so much for sharing this Theresa!!!.

It's posts like this that keep me motivated and moving forward on days like today when I am making cookies, and brownies, and my favorite rice crispy treats!!! for my daughters fundraiser...and working my ass off because I am a new cook and everything takes more effort right now...and I can't even be "rewarded" for my hard work by eating the one of the yummy treats...and I'm still pre-op...and how am I ever going to be able to do this for the rest of my life?!.

Whew! That was a mouthful!.

Seriously though, I read this and felt all better. :-)).

Thanks for inspiring me to keep moving forward. You are a superstar!!! Love you!.
