Introducing myself

Postby Guest » October 16th, 2006, 8:46 pm

I am starting my fourth week of Medifast and I have lost 14 pounds so far. I am SO excited about this! I had asked my doctor about going on a liquid diet and she said she didn't recommend it. I was very disappointed but a few days later I saw a Medifast commercial on tv and did a lot of research the next few days. I called my dr. to ask her about it but she had never heard of it. I decided that I had done enough research and that I would try it. My doctor will be thrilled when I go back to see her. She's been bugging me to lose weight for years!

It has been hard at times and I haven't been 100%, but this is the most hope I have had in 9 years! I lost 60 pounds nine years ago and gained it all back when I got pregnant. Then I had two miscarriages, became depressed, gained even more weight, and then finally had two more babies.

I am a homeschooling mom of 5 wonderful children. It's very hard cooking for my family and not being able to eat what they are having!

I've been reading this forum for several weeks but just signed up. Everyone's before, during, and after pictures are very inspiring! I have stayed up way too late many nights looking at the pictures on here.

Looking forward to lots of encouragement and support here! :D

I did register but when I put in my username last night, it kept telling me that name was already taken. So I left it blank. I signed in today successfully though.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes! :D

Hi Robin,
And welcome to our group. :D This is a wonderful group of people -- they'll help you along the way. Posting is a great form of accountability. We let ourselves down more redily than we let down others. It's just the way we are. :? Plus our excuses sound great to us but others see right thru them. :mrgreen: So this is the place to be.
Oh and did you know that MF is not a "liquid" diet.?? I think long ago we used to be but now of course we have lots of yummy things. The bars, oatmeal, pudding etc. What a great variety!!.. Have fun trying the new things and remember to check out the Lean Cuisine section so you'll have even more variety. We love to "play with our food" :mrgreen:
