Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Help! I re-started yesterday, got on the scales this morning and was depressed and angry at myself for having gained back SO much weight. But, I am motivated. I have to get started on this during the holiday season or I will just gain even MORE weight. I feel like crap, clothes are tight again. I know my health is suffering. I have to do something about this..

My first goal is to lose 40 pounds by March 12th. I friend and I are planning to go on a cruise and the idea of being seen in a bathing suit is very motivating! So I am open to as much support as I can get!..

Kay, if you stick to the plan 40 pounds by the middle of March is very possible. I started Oct. 4th and have lost 35 pounds in 8 weeks. Cruises are so much fun, I have been on several. When I went I weighed over 300. I still snorkeled, scubaed, and swam.

Enjoy life whereever you are. But if you really want to be thin, stick to the program and it will happen..

Thanks, Pat! I am proud of myself because I did pretty well yesterday, even with an office potluck. I made a salad I could eat and brought low fat dressing, plus I brought a baggie of chopped up turkey for my lean. I did have a tamale (hey, it's the Christmas season!), but did not eat the enchiladas, the desserts or the pasta..

I will swim when I'm fat, I just want to have the energy to go around and do things on the cruise. Having that be a mini-goal helps me stay focused...

Hi!.

I"m starting Medifast for the first time and making it through my first week. Still kind of feeling my way around this site and hoping to become part of the community. I really want to finally succeed. I started at 330 two years ago, working out at the YMCA and kind of following various diets usually low carb and made it down to 229. Then I just couldn't push past my emotional eating and have gained and lost and gained again back up to 260ish. So here I am..

Thanks,.

Well, I made it past the third day somehow that seems to be a difficult day for me. Down 3.5 pounds, so almost 10% of my first goal achieved!.

I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling overwhelmed by how far I have to go in this journey. If I focus on the fat that I need to lose almost half my body weight, it feels impossible and it's easy to lose hope. I think by breaking this down into specific goals, like losing 40 pounds by March, this will seem more possible. If something is possible, then I find it easier to stay focused on meeting the goal. In the past I have tried to set mini goals for every 20 pounds, but that hasn't done the trick, so I'm making a bigger goal, but setting a deadline..

What methods have worked for others?..

Hello MFers.

I started on Thursday December 2nd. I have 110.6 lbs to loose but I am looking forward to meeting a lot of different goals:.

1: Getting below my pregnancy weight.

2: Entering onederland.

3: Weighing less then my husband.

4: Fitting into my wedding dress.

5: Weighing 136 lbs which is about what I weighed when I was a freshman.

I would love to join your group and help you celebrate all of your goals..

I'm going on a cruise January 23 so my motivation is really strong right now. I'm going to stay on plan, no cheating and reach my goals...

Hi All,.

I've been MIA from the boards for a few days due to studying and get-togethers but I've managed to stay OP so that's a plus! Tomorrow marks my first full week on MF. I'm still feeling a bit blah physically but I'm excited about the changes I'm making each day. I did have to re-work the plan a bit with my Dr. since I have to watch how much soy I eat/drink each day. That means I won't lose as quickly as I'd hoped that's ok... for now.



I hope everyone is having a great week!.

Well, week 1 down several more to go. I had a loss of 5.2lbs so I'm on my way! Now it's time to run a few errands and grab lunch..

Quick question for the Medifast vets. I know feeling kind of run down, crabby, dizzy/lightheaded while your body adjusts to the program is to be expected. If you don't mind sharing, I was just wondering how many people experienced these things early on and how long it lasted..

Thanks!.

Hi, everyone,.

I'm still getting the hang of this thing never used discussion boards before! I, too, started eleven days ago on November 28th, but I hope you'll let me in anyway! :-D.

I'm so excited saw my doctor today and I'm actually down 11 pounds! That's almost 10% of my overall goal, to go from 239 to 130. It's funny how as the days have gone by, my goal weight has dropped along with the weight. When I started out, 150 seemed like the best I could imagine. Then, after a few days, 145, then 140 seemed like they were possible. Now, 130 was what I weighed in my 20s, before I began struggling with my weight (aside from a fat spell in my teens). I'd love to get back into a size 11 again!..

Morning all!.

It's good for me to check in and remember I'm not alone in this. It has been a HORRIBLE week , one that normally would have driven me to eat (I don't drink, but I might have started!) Several family members had surgery, or are in the hospital with critical issues right now. Then, an old friend who is one year younger than me (54) had a heart attack and died in her sleep. She left a husband and 12 yr old son :^(.

It is such a wake up call for me to STAY strongit is worth it to be healthy. Even at 55, I still have little ones at home and I need to be here for a long time!.

Welcome Calypso! Things have been a little slow in this thread the past few days. I guess we are all trying to cope with the holidays. It's good that you decided to give Medifast a try first. My doctor asked about bariatric surgery and I just have some real concerns about it. Not only does surgery carry risks, but I've seen people who don't change their relationship with food sabotage bypass surgery. This is the less invasive way to go!..

Calypso, I agree with Kay about the surgery. I had a lap band 'installed' :^) about 5 years ago. It helped a little bit at first, but I soon figured out how to bypass it and I gained back all the weight I had lost, plus more. Even my doctor told me that over half of the bands he.

Had placed were not helping the patient..

I have done many, MANY diets over mylifetime, and this is the fastest I have ever lost weightand I lost 75 pounds in six months once, on Atkins..

Agreed! If I were not traveling, I would start it right away. I really don't care about holiday food. But, I'm not ready to tell my whole extended family about MF, and there will be no privacy for fixing food, etc. since we're all staying in one house. So, I'm waiting until we return home (the 28th) to start..

I was thinking about doing a "transition" to MFmaybe replacing some meals with the bars, and eating as lean and green as possible for the other meals...

Hi all,.

I just wanted to stop by and give you all some encouragement. I started the first of Oct and have lost 40 pounds. I know you all can do it too. I was 306 when I started and had.

Done several other diets over the years. Sometimes this one is easy, somedays it is really hard, but you can do it. I was surprised at how easy it has been for me to not eat all the holiday goodies that are everywhere. The bars are like have a sweet treat and curb my desire for goodies..

Give this diet your best and you will all succeed. Just remember how good it will feet to get rid of the extra pounds. It really surprised me just how much more I could do and enjoy activities after just one month..

Great job and congratulations!!! It makes it easier to keep working when you see progress!.

A couple people commented about getting ready to start if you can't start (traveling, supplies not in) then eating as clean as possible is a good idea. Review what veggies are on plan because not all are! And congratulations for taking your steps towards a healthier new year!.

So my resolution for 2011 is to continue working this program and to increase my exercise to 3 times per week. If I can continue to lose about 10 pounds per month, by summer I will be lighter than I have been in 10 years, and I will be very close to my goal this time next year!.

People with less to lose sometimes don't lose a quickly. But I think if you stay on course and eat as approved you could lose that 40 pounds..

Was not on plan yesterday for the family Christmas dinner, but drank LOTS of water, just had a spoonful of mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (not the kind drenched in syrup), focused instead on green beans and turkey. Did have a rice noodle dish as our starter. Did not eat dessert, rice krispies treats or any other goodies. Gave away all the chocolate I got for Christmas. Did extra workouts at the gym this weekend. So, when I weighed in this morning, I was up .6.

I will keep reading your posts and join in when I begin the program. I am truly looking forward to getting to know all of you. Please give me your opinion - I have a hard time eating regular food.

Yes I am like you. If I have too many choices I tend to overeat. I like Medifast because I have choices but they are all basic. My L&G is very basic. I like the ease of not having to worry about making special meals. I have tried some of the special reciepes people have made up using the Medifast foods.



I don't seem to obsess about what I can't have because of the good weight loss. When you get results it is easy to stick to the plan. Just don't let you emotions run wild and try to use food to fix it. It dosen't work..

This plan seems to ruin your past relationship with food. It no longer gives the pleasure it seemed to do before. It is just food, not your main focus of life. You become aware that it is not making you happy, even right at the time you eat it..

Welcome to the group! I find it really helps to talk with others who also have 100+ to lose. Sometimes I have trouble identifying with people doing Medifast with 30 or 40 pounds to lose, but that's me thinking their propblem isn't as bad as mine, instead of understanding that for them that 30 or 40 pounds may be as hard to deal with as my 130+ pounds are..

Anyway, jump in to this program when you feel ready to make the changes in your life. I get a lot of support from different forums when my motivation is not as strong. I know when I am going into a "relapse" I stop posting and reading other people's posts because I don't want to face what I'm feeling. My resolution for 2011 is to keep showing up. Even if I fall off, come back and post and ask for help and support to pick myself back up and keep going. So start the program and keep coming back blog, use the boards make friends and call on them for support. We are all on this journey!..

Hi Everyone;.

Short info: I was 375 3 years ago, started eating low carb and made better choices when I was not totally on low carb. I am now 287. I've had some trouble gaining and loosing, but this is the first time I have been able to not gain back.

Everything.

As soon as I stopped loosing. I have also tried every diet known to man and I pretty much know that's not the way..

I had thought of Medifast before but now my Ortho Dr. wants to do a hip replacement and will not touch me until I loose 100#. I have a membership to a pool and have been going 2 times a week. I also plan to do Yoga for the "rest" of us. I hope even with a bad hip I can do more as I loose weight. My Dr.



I have 6 children (all grown) 2 grandchildren. My daughters are very supportive..

I would still like to loose the rest of the weight after the 100#, so I need all the help I can get. I also would like to help support anyone here that needs it..

It will be hard work, but I think the lean and green will help. I feel that I can go to dinner and make good choices. And to have others who have to loose the same amount is so great...

Getting to 100 pounds over my "normal" weight was a good wake-up call for me. Time for something to be done, lest it continue to creep upwards for the rest of my (shorter) life..

Weight Watchers has too many loopholes. Medifast doesn't have many, so it's more obvious when I'm abusing them..

Welcome!! I confess I mainly use the shakes and the bars. I have not had much success trying the foods, and don't want to waste money buying a box of something I dislike! I do doctor the shakes with Torani sugar free syrups, and I sometimes mix the shakes with diet soda instead of water. Crushing up ice makes the shakes more like a smoothie, which is another variation I enjoy. I find focusing on "real" food for my L&G helps me retrain my tastebuds, and sticking to the shakes and bars gives me less room to cheat...

Hi, I would like to connect with everyone here. I got my Medifast food today, but because it is my husband's birthday Sunday, I am going to wait until Monday to start. I am trying not to eat all the "last bites" of my favorites. We are getting together for a family dinner I want to eat well, but not gain..

Best wishes for you all..

Patty..

Hello All!! I am right smack dab in my first week. I started on Sunday. I had no intentions of weighing in until Sunday again, but I had a doctor appointment today and I have lost 4 pounds!! As mentioned I am sure that it is water weight, but it is just what I need to see to keep me motivated. I have over 140 pounds that I need to lose, so I have got to stick with it. I love all y'all ladies on here that bare your souls (gentlemen too) because it lets me know that the thoughts that I have aren't crazy. Hope everyone rides through the weekend safely and OP!!!..

Sounds like everyone is off to a great new year! I am 2/10ths of a pound away from losing my first 20#.

I'm pretty pleased to be making such good progress. I think going to the gym is really helping out. I am not a huge fan of exercising, but then who over 200 pounds is! I set myself a goal of going at least twice a week, and most weeks I am getting there 3 times. I stick a little star on the calendar the days I work out so I can tell at a glance if I am on target..

I am mainly using the treadmill at the gym, but have started using the elliptical. Since it kicks my butt (literally, I hope) I am only up to 5 minutes, so I do it after I have done my 40 minutes on the treadmill. What types of exercise are others doing?..

I go to the pool 2 times a week, I am doing exercise given to me by the physical therapist (did them for a year) I am going to do yoga by Peggy Cappy, arthritis DVD. I would like to walk but with a bad hip not possible right now. Anyone have any ideas for me? In my other post I got my food, they are in the bags for 7 days and I'm pretty much ready for Monday. Good work KHatlaw.

Hey, where is everyone? I hope that you are just posting on others threads, but are still here..

I am down 22 pounds since I started. Very pleased about that. Over half way to my goal to lose 40 by March 12th. Bad news is that the friend I was going to go on a cruise with that week can't go, so we're talking about going later in the summer. But I joined a Biggest Loser group at work to help me stay motivated. Ugh, I have to go do a weigh in in about 10 minutes.

Plus, I usually weigh first thing in the morning, naked. Not doing THAT!..

Hi everbody, thanks to those who sent me messages and looked at my just started blog. I am starting my 3rd week and it feels really good. I found that a couple of days I was full so actually.

Forgot.

To eat. An entirely new consept for me. (ha) I have to go in fasting for Dr. Appt. on Wed, I wonder how that will go. I was a Little dissapointed at my 3# loss, but my body does what it wants I guess.



Keep up your good work,.

Love from snowy Oregon.

Three pounds is good! You are sticking to this and that's what's important. I noticed you are gifting yourself a Nook for your first minigoal I received a Kindle for my birthday and LOVE it. I can download new books by favorite authors the same day they are released, without having to pre-order and then wait for mail or having to run out to the bookstore...

Thanks, I'm being a little excessive, I also already have a Kindle and do love it, but I also want to download from the library e-books, I am little "cheap" and want to read currently without the cost! I also promised myself that I would read some of the classics that I missed, and those are free!!.

I'm hoping the lack of new posts is just that group members have been active on other boards! Hope everyone is doing well and sticking through our third month on MF...
