My friend is doing Medifast and I'm following my own plan, which involves real food and tracking everything. I did WW many years ago and reached goal weight, so I'm also incorporating some of the stuff I learned there. I do some walking too, but right now my knees and lower back get sore pretty fast, so I'm hoping to get more physically active once I lose more weight.
My friend and I have very different body types and she is much taller and younger than I am, so I don't feel competitive with her at all. We've had two weekly weigh-ins so far and the results are very interesting. In two weeks, I have lost 6 pounds and she has lost 10 pounds.
This has been really great so far and she tells me it is helpful for her too. On Tuesday mornings we tell each other how much we've lost (hopefully not gained!) and what challenges and successes we've had. We also email each other in between in case we need to get encouragement or we want to get kudos for making good choices.
