First question I got is Medifast Diet Question... please help!? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question on my mind: Hello everyone! Just starting Medifast today!! I am excited to get started and hoping I can figure all of this out - clearly I had to go get a new single serve blender. My next purchase this week is going to have to be a sandwich maker. I have found more recipes that I can imagine, thank God, because I will need them soon! I love to try new things with these foods, so that will be good..

I'm starting at 276lbs today and my official goal will be around 150 but not in a rush to get there so long as I am making progress along the way. Truly, my ultimate goal is to be there before I turn 40 in 2 years, so hopefully that will be the case. We'll see how it goes..

Was just wondering if there were some other new Medifast starters around my same weight/goals and just trying to link up and meet a few new friends along the way..

~ Lori (ellekay).

How does everyone have like an "auto signature on their blogs/posts on here? I can't find that option?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..

Hi Lori and Welcome to MF!.

This a great plan and with lots of support and I hope you grow to love it as much as I do...wishing you much success!.


Click on "Community Home" and in the bottom left hand corner will be a box where you can "create ticker". click on basic information to change starting weight..

Then follow the steps - once you "finished" scroll down find URL code that you will have to copy and paste into your signature..

To edit your signature, click on:.

- Discussion Boards.

- edit profile settings (it's right under where it says Medifast Forums).

- edit signature.

And paste that URL code into your signature..

I too am starting today. My current weight is 232 and my goal is 140. I am pretty excited about the plan and ready to start seeing changes. I am looking for someone to share with through this journey..

I will be 40 in two months and feel like it is definitely time for a change. As someone who used to be pretty active, it is hard to notbe as mobile with my children..

So congrats to you Lori for taking that first step!!.

We seem to be in a similar boat. I am starting at 288.8, and hope to be down to around 150 by the time I am 40. :-).

I have had many changes in my life in the last year, and found that food was a grab and scarf type thing for me. I need something that I can "grab and scarf" that doesn't gome with a side of fries, if you get my drift. This seems ideal to me. I've had 64oz of water between 8am and noe (4pm) which is HUGE for me. AND I am getting my excersize in running to the bathroom every 2 hours. Seems like I pee, then eat.

My challenge is going to be what to do at lunch time. I get an hour! I use to run to the fast food place and read a book. Now what do I do. I'm thinking about running to the mall and boosting the economy, but that will break me in days. So maybe I'll do laps at the mall. I am looking for suggestions.

I am still waiting for my food but will be starting here in a couple days. I am 28 and living in Northern CA. I am currently 323 and want to be down to 145. I am not in a rush but I need to do this for so many reasons. I have lupus and this extra weight is making me miserable. I recently came to terms with the reasons why I have been using food as a mask and as a coping tool so now I think I am ready to take this weight off and be the real me again.

I don't expect it to be easy but I am up for a challenge. After all I have been through I know I can do this too...

Hello all I just started Medifast 2 days ago so far so good. I have over 200 pounds to lose but I am hopeful. I wish you all success on the plan as well as myself. Right now I am trying the chicken noodle soup it's growing on me. Let's nip this weight thing in the bud. We can do it...

Just started.....on wednesday the 17th, I am finding it really okay! I can't say I like everything...soups, shakes and cocoa are not to my liking, but the pretzels, pudding, bars and brownies are good. My ideal number of pounds I want to loose is 120......starting at 255....long way to go, but finally think I have found the program for me. I like this support forum too - not 100% sure how it works, but hopefully it will make sense soon....would be delighted to have support from other 'weight losers" in the similar bracket......

Hi everyone!.

I ordered my Medifast food 2 days ago and I am very excited to start. I have 65 pounds to lose. I ran into an old co-worker of mine and she has lost 80 pounds using Medifast since January. It was really motivating and gave me the confidence to FINALLY try something!..

Wow-go Brandi! I don't think I'm going to lose anything this weekI kind of expected to, especially since I didn't have a HUGE loss week 1, but, oh well. I'm getting a scale to measure my protein with, and I'm going to focus on MAKING SURE to drink all my water! Plus I start the 12 week walking program today!!!!!..

I started Medifast on November 8th, a Monday. It has been 3 weeks since I've been on it and as presented in my ticker, the scale says I'm down 13.2lbs. I can't wait to reach my goal weight and all my mini goals on the way!.

Good luck to everybody on their weight loss journey!..

Today is the beginning of week 3 already! I DID end up losing this week! 2.2 lbs! I think I need to watch my condiments a little more though. I've been a little liberal as of late....

Samantha- it's on the medifast website, but I'll try & see if I can link to it...There should be a link that says Exercise Guide here (it's a PDF). The walking program is in the pdf.
