New to medifast

Postby caramelsundae02 » October 18th, 2006, 8:23 pm

Ok So I am new to Medifast but have been looking into it for months now.I just had to wait to get work and a new job.So I just ordered my first order yesterday :D Now my question is I work a lot.I have to jobs and it will be hard the first three days I hear so are thier any suggestions? I actually work at Target so leaving to go down a shake every few hours may be hard. My work day begins at 6 or 7 dependign on the day and ends at 2:30 or 3:30 and if I go to my other job its usually 5 or 6 till 9 so how should I schedule my shakes? and how should I handle the first few days? Im 4'11 and 211lbs :x I gained weight after a bad breakup last year. I want to go do 135 or 125 depending on how it looks on me any ideas on how long it should take?

Thanks everyone

I also work in retail and I have no problems eating my meal, my day is like this:
Wake up at 5:30 am
Eat my oatmeal at 6 am
drink a shake at 9 am, my first break at work
at noon I have soup, my lunck time
at 3 pm I have my bar, during my last break
before I wok out I have another shake about 5 pm
then for dinner at 7 pm I eat my L&G
I would hope that you get breaks and lunches at Target

Hi and welcome. You may want to consider the ready to drink prep time and they're so tasty.

If you drink all your water, beLIEVE me, you'll be taking your breaks!! And the Ready to Drink shakes (RTDs) are a great option, as are bars (but just one bar a day). It also might help to have things you can make up ahead of time and bolt down quickly if you're in a rush (like pudding, although even the regular shakes can be made ahead of time)

Welcome to MF and the Forum. It is important to have a MF meal every two to three hours. Otherwise, the temptation to grab anything that is not on the program is there. And, there are certainly a lot of goodies to get into in Target! Others gave you great ideas. Select the meals with little or no prep time, and save soups and oatmeals for home. It can be done--it is totally up to you as to how successful you will be, with help and encouragement from this forum! 55# later, I can attest to that! Good luck, Caramel, you can do it!! :)
