Newbie and made it to MFDay 4!

Postby Happyskull » May 25th, 2006, 9:56 am

hello to you all !

Shame on me for lurking for a few days! :D
I stareted MF on the 23rd! And admitedly the first day wasn't to bad!
I think maybe body was quite happy to be watered and fed every two-three hours! XD
Second day- gosh- absolutely weird. I just wanted to eat anything-but I didnt'- yay me!
Third day and today easy-easy! I'm not to keen on all the food stuffs yet... :'(
I had a wonderful good time sacking the recipe pages for perking up those soups!
Thank you to the folks that have posted there... I thought i was doomed until those!
The shakes are yummy! *life savers*

Well I dont know really how much of an intro we are supposed to give...
So I'll be breif. :)
In my pre baby life XD I was a solid 130-135lbs.
After baby no good... just got in a funk and with S.O. traveling just kept packing on the lbs.
Until was at 285lbs. i'm only 5'5" !!!
Sick of that- I went the completely opposit end of the "I want to see me again" route-
And am down to 210lbs.
I'm starting Medifast after some family intervention but supportive in my determination to lose the weight.
My mother actually bought the medifast for me! *hug for mom*
I do want to be "me" again, I am really impressed with the successes and good things about the MF plan I've been reading!
I'll get to be me again and enjoy a healthy way achieving it!
So grateful and happy someone pointed me in the right direction!
I found this forum looking up info about medifast and am finding good motivation and help from reading the posts!
So happy your all here extending friendship, support and guidance on the MF road!
S.O. comes back from japan july 17 and wont he be surprised to see
the old me coming back out!

Joining you on the road to thindom!
all the best,

Hello & Welcome Ina! Image

It sounds like you are doing GREAT for your first week. You found us and that is huge. I didnt think I would make it to day 2 and luckly found this site. The lean cusine section saved me too.

My advice is to keep drinking your water and posting here if you are feeling down or just want to chat.

Hi Ina,
I just wanted to add my welcome! You're doing SO well! I'm so happy you found us! Post any time you need us! We'll be here!

Also, I'm not the brightest bulb in the lamp, so I'm STILL trying to figure out what a XD is, but I'll figure it out!

Today is my first day and I'm feeling your pain from days 1 and 2. Really great to read about someone who pushed their way through it. Thanks for the inspiration.
