First off, Medifast Diet, being on phase 1 for too long? Many thanks for any comment. Another quick question... Who loses steadily and by steadily I mean who loses 2-3 pounds a week pretty much every week during their weight loss and who among us loses in chunks?.

For some of us it seems to come off very evenly the entire time, then for the rest of us it is feast or famine. We lose little or nothing for many days or weeks, then boom we lose a ton in a short time..

I wish I knew why that was. My ticker is not really evidencing it at this point as so far it has worked out pretty well by weigh-in, but man I am super duper crazy of late on the losing. At first it seemed steady, but now I am going into feast or famine mode. (I am ready for a feast too!)..

I held on at 210 for almost an entire week several weeks ago. That has been a traditionally difficult number for me to get past. So then Thursday I was 209 after almost a week, then Friday 207 (my weigh-in)- so 3 pounds that week all at once at the end. Went on Saturday to 206, then 205 on Sunday??? So from Weds. to Sun. that week 5 pounds were gone my weigh-in just came in the middle..

I was 205 all week until Friday morning weigh-in I got 204 and some change- so 3# by the hair of my chinny chin chin. So now it has been 204 since and we are 4 days removed. So a couple of weekends ago it was flying off, now these last 2 pounds have lasted like 10 days. How weird?.

I do not see TOM affecting things either with this diet. Guess I am not retaining as much water?.

No, I am not distressed by this, it is just so strange how we lose it. Many of you probably do not weigh daily to see it staying the same day after day, but if you do I would love to hear how it comes off. The first couple of weeks I was down some almost every day. It was steady, now I picture the fat cells talking saying "No, we WILL NOT GO! You cannot make us!" for days. Then finally they cannot hold on and say "Alright you guys leave then maybe she'll shut up about the whole thing!" and I lose faster in a short time. Now they are back to hanging on for all they can again. Sorry, I have a vivid imagination...

I seem to lose weight in chunks, and it kinda drove me nuts for awhile. I will have smaller losses and then BAM, the weight starts to drop off fast over a period of a few days. I will be stuck at the same weight for 10 days, then drop like mad over 3 or 4 days in a row. On those fast weight loss days, I also feel really hungry and kinda shaky..

When I looked at the big picture instead of the individual weeks (calculating my weekly average), I felt better about it and now I've just come to accept that this is how my body chooses to give up the weight. It doesn't matter how perfect I work the plan from week to week. I've been 100% OP the whole time. I've tried mixing up my L&G, calorie/carb cycling, more/less exercise. I just decided to stop trying to figure it out. The weight is coming off and that's all that matters to me...

While I can't know the answer to this yet, thanks for posting it. It will help those of us starting out to know that this is a possible explanation if the scale doesn't seem to move!.

During my short time so far, I seem to lose one day, hold the next, lose, then hold... we'll see how that continues!!!..

For the first 50 lbs of my weight loss, I lost pretty steady. Since it has gone in chunks, but as long as I am losing, it is all good...

LOL Gencaf - That's exactly how I have lost on MF, In chunks then stalls for a week on TWO. I hate it when those fat cells start talking to each other. Maybe we can make them write 100 times - I will not talk or listen to the other fat cells when I'm suppose to be shrinking in class...

Thanks for posting this. It's interesting how weight loss works. I think I'm going to have to keep in touch with those who experience this, because I'm new-ish and the scale is confusing me. I'm glad to read staying with the basic Medifast plan your weight keeps coming off. Not feeling confident right now. 1/2 pound seems to be gone from this crazy scale week, my fourth on mf, all OP all the time.

: ( Analyzing everything. Anyway, thanks for chatting about this. : )..

I'm pretty steady. At first it was about 3 lbs a week. For the last 20 lbs it has been about 2 lbs a week...

Yep, I'm one who loses in fits and starts. I'll lose 3 lbs in 2 days, then hold steady for 4. I write down my weight every morning in my little notebook, and there was a time 2 weeks ago where I wrote "***?" beside 3 gains in a row... and then I lost all those and 1 more lb in 2 days..

I don't know! It's just the way it happens for me...
