Down 5 pant sizes and running with it!

Postby bdg » June 15th, 2006, 11:43 am

68 days into the program and I am already down 5 pant sized. I am not sure my starting weight, because I was too big to weigh on a typical bathroom scale, but I set different goals for myself to get started. My first goal was to purchase a pair of jeans in a non-"Big & Tall" shop. I completed my first goal last weekend. I am working on coming up with a second small goal, but I am waiting for my scale to see where I am.

I have found this program to be the easiest thing I have done for weight loss. Not only that, it is working for me. I wasn't on any medications and I didn't have high blood pressure, but my weight was becoming more and more of a problem with knee pain and back pain. I knew that my weight would catch up to me some time. Not only that, but I have a family history of diabetes on both sides giving me great worry.

Now, my face is thinner, the shelf on my belly is going away, and my original pants that I barely fit in when I started the program are huge on me. I look forward to losing more, becoming more healthy and sharing TSFL and Medifast with friends and family to help them lose and become healthy too!
