Newbie Alert!!

Postby Out*With*The*Old » October 2nd, 2007, 8:30 pm

Hi, y'all!

I'm a newbie! My MF meals are in the mail and due to arrive on the 4th. I was soooooooooo excited to find MF when I ordered and now I am getting NERVOUS! It's way too soon for that, I know. I'm afraid I wont like the meals (I'm such a picky eater) but I really want to get this weight off!! A horrible marraige and a even worse divorce (which isn't over yet) has left me way way way larger than I ever thought possible. I'm an emotional eater and find that to 'get control' I have to take drastic measures. I can't cheat at all cause I can't cheat a little, KWIM? I've tried a million carbs left me mean and tired, WW drove me crazy with points counting and it's always been easier to 'grab something fast' instead of something good. I'm hoping this will be easy and that I've finally found what will help me reclaim the real me!

Another downfall is that I get so frustrated when I am on plan and try and try only to see the scale the same or slowwwwly moving. I am aiming for 89 pounds and I'm not the most patient person around :-). I'm 5'2, 219 pounds (OMG I said it!) and will be 38 in three weeks. I want a new me, a new life, my health and happiness! I figure I have a tall order but you don't get what you don't stirve for, right?

I'm looking forward to all of the advice, support and thoughts you have!!!! My food arrives Thursday so I'm trying to determine the best start date!

TIA for whatever you post in return!

Hugs to all :oops:

Welcome and congrats on the decision to change your life. Don't worry, you will like the food. There may be things you might not care for, and you can deal with that later. :mrgreen:

Again, welcome and congrats. ;)

congrats on your decision to start MF! You will do just fine! If its any consolation, when i started i was about 220-230 and im only 5'! eek!

to be honest not all the shakes are great but they have alot of really good ones and when u see the weight starting to go it may make it easier to down yucky ones if ya have to. :) YOU CAN DO IT! :hug:

Hi there. If you follow the plan and remain patient, you will lose the weight. It's that simple.

I love the taste of the food, but I must warn you that for the first week or so it can taste a little off until all the sugar is out of your system. After that....smoothe sailing.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!

I'm still nervous - - but also excited. I had planned to have my favorite foods this weekend and then start the plan on Monday.......but I'm torn, I may just jump right in on Friday (assuming the food arrives early enough on Thursday for me to read and know what the heck I am doing)......Part of me thinks I'd better just do away with the old junk now and move forward.....thats hopefully what I'll do - lol

Thanks again for the welcome - I look forward to becoming a big loser with ya!

It would be easier to start right away.... the weekend is great. The first three days are the hardest. If you are at home you won't be tempted to stray!

I'm so happy you are beginning this marvelous journey, Kim. :D Nervousness and anxiety are normal when someone contemplates changing their life. And that IS what you will be doing! It is truly a time to be excited over the prospect of being all you can be! :cheermed:
