First off, Is it proper for a teacher to ask a student for Medifast daily? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question on my mind: Hi there. i'm another new one to this section of dailystrength..

I'm 36 years old, female, and I have managed to gain nearly 100 pounds in the past year and a half. I have always been overweight. I was born heavy and I stayed that way. i've never known what it is like to be of average weight..

I tried.

Weight watchers.

(along with.


, medifast, a low calorie.

Diabetic diet.

, etc.), but their scales didn't go high enough to measure my weight. embarrassing! I lose30-50 pounds and then it comes right back..

I am going to meet the nutritionist for the first time on the 30th of december. I will have my gallbladder scan sometime this week. and I will be set up to meet with the surgeon soon, too. for the preop visit, I already did his seminar.

The answer is Yes, however you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you call the Medifast guys because they can assist you better...
