First question I got is Just bought the Medifast Diet Supercharged ? Many thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. So were to begin, well lets start with the bare basics.

I am morbidly obese ok there I admit it, I accept full responsiblity for it as I was not always super plus size, but I didnt get FAT by accident... So that said, I am trying to change..

I am 5'5 345lbs give or take one scale says I'm 325 the other 345 stark contrast but I assume the worse until proven otherwise..

I am 41 yrs old and have gone from a life where I never was home always out on the go meeting people and doing things to being s sedentary sit in from of the computer *Heavy chic, who is starting her own graitational pull* Oh yes and a comedian!.

I am trying to figure out what is the best way to tackle doing the medifast, I have heard amazing things ans from what I have read on the site the last 2 days, well I am ready to give myself the best gift ever.. I want to give me back to me!.

Anywho, has anyone just done it via the web site, or should I keep trying to find a MD that offers medifast as an option, my current PCP I love hre personality and non belief in drug unless absolutely needed. She is the reason that I made a major life change and went back to school to be a Respiratory Care Practitioner. Which I finally finished last year!!.

Anyway she does not offer medifast, and on our having conversations in the past where I asked about lap banding or gastric bipas she said no go and she would never sign off on such a proceedure. But my last visit 2 months ago she asked me if I was still intrested in it as she thinks my 60lb weight gain even further she would conceed to helping me get approved. (Scarey when a doc who doesnt believe in somting comes and says ok lets talk about this surgery before you have a heart attack and die) yes those were her words she knows my family history of women dying young my mother had her first heat attack at age 37 and I have surpassed that thank the lord by 4 years....

Any suggestions? advice? Lifelines? Help? I'll gladly take it all....

Oh yes and I will finally be using a gym membership I have paid 25.00 per month to have for the last 6 yrs and NOT GONE BUT THE DAY I SIGNED UP!..

Hi Chunky Chic,.

My doc has been suggesting bariatric surgery for the last 4 years. I have diligently & faithfully went from one diet plan to another trying to to prove to her that I could do it without surgery - I managed to gain 4 pounds during a month of strict Weight Watchers. So I gave up & went to see the surgeon. You have to lose a specific % of body weight to shrink your liver for bariatric surgery. After reviewing my history, he gave me a 1000 calorie, very very low fat diet. While I didn't gain, I didn't lose.

And losing mere ounces. That's when my daughter told me about Medifast. I've been on 16 wks now, have lost 51 pounds. I'm not hungry, I feel good, and it looks like I've found a solution that doesn't involve submitting to the knife. I am doing the on-line program.

I don't think you need to be a part of a clinic, unless you need the face-to-face support. For me, the discussion boards keep me motivated & supported. I wish you well on this journey, it works!.

I am one happy MFer..

I think you should have a chat with your doc, just order the food online and she can medically supervise you! It sounds like you have a great relationship with her, and if she's willing to consider surgery to help you, I'd bet she'd be willing to see you try MF! I'm pretty new about a month, and down 17 pounds (Literally, with a 100 more to go if I wanted to be a normal range). The only approach I've ever been successful on before was Atkins, but plateaued, got discouraged and slowly nibbled about half of the weight I'd lost back. This is much simpler to follow than I thought and beats the heck out of going under the knife!..

A friend introduced me to Medifast last October. As a diabetic, I diligently took it to my doctor. He had never heard of the program, but was willing to have me try it. After six months on the program, he asked more pointed questions about what I was doing and TOOK NOTES so he could share the information with others..

I do most of my stuff online. I do have a friend or two that work with me who help me stay on plan even when I don't want tothough to be honest the last two months have not been so great just going to show you need to keep up the good habits and hold yourself accountable no matter where you are on the ticker! I am a firm believer in experience being the best teacher. Mine tells me that transition and maintainance are going to be HARD once I reach goal..

I order online. I recieve my Medifast through the regular mail. I post as often as I can and have made some great friends here at this sitebut I also see my doctor regularly to keep an eye on my diabetes, high blood pressure, macular degeneration.....etc., etc. (To quote "the King and I").

This is an awesome plan. Determination and persistance are the keys..

Hey Chick!.

ChewysMom and I are on the same discussion board frequently.(Diamonds in the rough). I'll say the same thing she does. You can absolutely do this online. I have a friend who has lost 130 lbs and is still losing. This program works if you let it. Follow the plan, visit the boards and chat rooms frequently.

Be open to learning experiences. I recently went on vacation and gained 4 lbs in 10 days. RevelationI can eat 3 big meals and desert every day and lose weight. Really? I mean Seriously?.

Chewy, you and I are all in healthcare. This program works shifts. It's portable and in my case discrete. Come on in girl. Grab your packets and let's do this thing!..

Hi Chic-.

I got a fabulous FREE health coach. She really helped me along the way. PM me and I can give you her info..

I am not a Medifast coach and not looking for any Medifast coach business. Just had someone wonderful in my corner who kept me well informed and gave me excellent pep talks as well as great information and Medifast food hints..

Alsotake a minute to read the Hopkins Studies. For me they clinched my getting on the program..

I wish you great success!..

I use the boards faithfully. They're wonderful and you really get to know people. You cheer each other own. You understand like no one else can. Find your group and join in. You become "family"! Good luck and hang in there!!..
