First Day Tomorrow! Duhn Duhn Duhn!!

Postby starla29 » August 3rd, 2006, 9:07 pm

Hi Everyone!

I have been poking around this forum for quite some time. I love to read everyone's posts. Tomorrow I am starting Medifast, and I have decided to do the complete plan. I have a bit to lose, but know I'll get there.
I have been up and down most of my life. Most recently, I had lost some weight in 2002 and went down to about 150 lbs. Then, I got pregnant with my daughter, who is now 3. I have gone on to have another baby, a boy who is now 13 months, but have never lost the 90 lbs I gained from my first pregnancy. I have a closet FULL of skinny clothes! I cannot wait to put them on again!
I would like to see myself at 130 lbs, ultimately. That means that I have to lose a little over 100 lbs!!! IKES!!!
Well, here I go..................I know that tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of my life. I can't wait! I am also looking forward to making new medifriends on this forum, and will post about how my first day went tomorrow.

Well it's Friday so that means you've started. Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life. Medifast rocks and you will achieve your goal if you simply submit to the plan and keep going one meal at a time. First 3-4 days are tough but after that it's soooo easy.

Welcome and happy shaking.

Thank you everyone for your support! I appreciate the replys! It is now Friday and I have started my journey. One day at a time! So far, so good. The oatmeal needed a little cinnamon and a tad bit of splenda, but it was good after that. I will post in the journal section next. Again, thank you so much!
