Newbie...gearin up for Day 1

Postby lilgorg » May 12th, 2006, 10:48 am

Hello everybody, I wanted to introduce myself before I started the program because I’m probably gonna be on here quite a bit. My name is Kim and I found out about the program last week when my former “work husband” emailed me about this great plan that we’ve got to try (I just moved out of state and he got a new job too, hence the term “former”). I’m currently at my breaking point so I’m willing to try just about anything. If I wasn’t so scared of needles, I probably would’ve even resorted to surgery! Anyways, I’ve been getting mentally prepared all week for this new journey. My package is due to arrive today so my plan is to start this up tomorrow. I figure if I’m going to be cranky with an attitude and headache, I might as well do it in the comfort of my own home and not risk getting fired! :shock: LOL

I guess I don’t have much to say right now. Dede got me hip to this forum so I’m gonna browse thru as I get ready for Day 1. Talk you soon….

Welcome. This is MUCH easier than going under the knife, I think! (And from what I've read on here, people who DO have surgery still have to follow something similar or they're even put on Medifast afterward.)

Good luck!

Welcome Kim! You've stumbled onto the BEST weight-loss plan ever, and if you just hang on tight it will change your life forever! :D The first 3-4 days are the toughest, and even though you'll be wearing your cranky-pants for the first little while, it'll get better...I promise you. :mrgreen: Just keep your eyes on the road straight ahead and you'll be thin before you know it. :redprowl:
Motto: The time will pass whether I diet or not.

Hi and welcome to our little forum! :lol:

I remember getting psyched to start Medifast. I couldn't wait for my box of stuff to arrive. And you know what? I'm still just as excited as I was on day one! This is a great program. It can be life changing if you let it.

What is a work husband? I'm a bit confused about your marital status, lol.

i've got so much to learn, like how to get my picture to show, how to get a chart of my progess in my signature, etc, etc.

u guys never heard of a work spouse? u must not watch "king of queens" :) well a work husband is a platonic hubby at work that understands u (translation, will whine & complain about crap around the office with u), goes to lunch with u, runs for coffee with u, updates u on th gossip, loans u money, borrows money (pretty much everything like real hubby but no nookie and no arguments). for a true, in-depth definition, see this article by GQ: <snip>no urls please - mr. Snippy</snip>. i have a real husband too. a lot of ppl have work spouses but don't even realize it.

speaking of my real husband, he just called to inform me that my box has arrived! yeah! he was like "dang, it was a pretty big box". so it's a sunny day here in cali and i'm all ready for what tomorrow brings. i'll try to log on and give ya'll an update on how it's going...maybe i can be a member of the 2# or 3# club by monday! :D
