REALLY Getting Serious...
Monday, June 16, 2008
I am SO ready to be rid of all the extra weight, and recently I learned of a program that could help me do it. It turns out that the representative (coach) for the program in my area goes to my church. What I'm doing is following the Medifast (www.medifast1.com) program. So my secret is out! Medifast sends me pre-packaged meals, I eat 5 of them a day, and I eat one meal of lean meat and vegetables. I'm taking in about 1000 calories per day, drinking about 10 glasses of water, and trying to get exercise although I've slacked in that area. I feel great, and lost 6 pounds in the first two weeks! The research on Medifast shows that it's safe and effective, and I'll probably only need to be on the full program for about 3 months. People are noticing that I'm taking more weight off, and I'm so excited about how baggy my clothes are getting! Today I dropped down to the 160's for the first time in about 20 years. WooHoo!
When I reach my goal weight Medifast will help me transition back into eating regular foods, and I plan to really read up on Intuitive Eating and live it for the rest of my life.
