Welcome Happy Cat! Are you starting today? This program works so well. There are a lot of helpful people here so come to the boards often!..
Welcome! I'm in week 2 of MF. I weigh in on Tuesday. I still have some rough times - mentally, not physically...but I love Medifast because it is a really straight forward approach to weight loss! Congratulations on making the decision to better your health and your life and good luck on your journey!..
Hi Happy Cat!.
I'm very curious about the Medifast center. I live in Canada and it is more difficult to get products.... I'd LOVE to have the option of joining a center. What happens there? It sounds really neat. Great job on your first loss! woo hoo!.
Yay! Welcome! I just started about two weeks ago and it really does help being able to come on here and be inspired by everyone!..
Welcome!! This is a fantastic program! I'm 41 and I don't think I've felt better in my life, even before I was overweight. Good luck!..
Welcome! Continue to come to this great community of supportive people and resources. I am not near any centers (just order online and come to the community), and I can't imagine it without this group of folks to answer questions!..
Thanks for so many replies!.
Amy, I started on Medifast last Tuesday. I will continue to visit daily and thanks!.
Misty, Thanks for the encouragement!.
Theresa, You can look online for the nearest center to you. I don't know how many are out there but I am glad I have one so close. Being able to go in and weigh each Tuesday and have the accountability and medical supervision is going to be most helpful..
Elizabath, Thanks! I was quite inspired going into another message board and seeing befroe and after pics. I am so excited and can, for the very first time, see myself as a size 10 by January!.
By the way, what does OP mean? I see that alot around here?..
OP means "on plan.".
Welcome to the boards and to MF...
Welcome to MF. I go to a center as well. I like the extra accountability and being able to get more food every week without having to wait!.
You can do this. Can't wait to see you shrink :P..
Hi and Welcome! I am new too. Im on day 9 of my new life. Already I feel really great and thinner already.
I look forward to a successful journey with yoU!..
Good job, I can't wait to get my kit and start getting thin...
Alicia, at the Center they call us "Meltaways" and I like that...
Welcome! I just finished my first week and am ready to face week two! Enjoy the community - everyone is so helpful and inspiring I can hardly stay off the discussions for more than an hour or two! Make sure to check out recipes also, to help stave off boredom with meals! Good luck on your journey!!..
Welcome, it's great to have you here!!! ( lol....."meltaways"......I LOVE it!!)..
Had my first weigh in yesterday and I am down 9 lbs! I know it comes off relatively fast at first but still, no diet has given me that first week result in the past. I can see myself on January 25, 2011 wearing size 10 jeans with my shirt tucked into my jeans and my jeans tucked into my Gem Baby boots! Sitting with my legs crossed (without having something in front of me to prop my foot against to keep my leg from flying out and kicking the person in front of me) is another goal. And, I want to run a mini marathon in 2011. Oh to run...I have, for years, had the desire to just run. But God forbid. No one wants to see that!.
My journey began on 4/26/2010 with high cholesterol and blood pressure and taking Prilosec every morning..
Week one - 4/26 - 257 (haven't taken Prilosec since I started and haven't needed it!).
Week two - 5/4 - 248!..
9 pounds woo what a great start and motivation!..
Congratulations on getting started. I love reading the results from those first couple of weeks on Medifast! The weight loss is always so great and it inspires a lot of enthusiasm. I love it! Keep up the good work!..
