Newbie Here

Postby Cawfeechick » January 18th, 2007, 5:20 pm

Hi all,

Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm another newbie. Today was Day 2 for me and so far, so good. My name is Cheryl. I am 30 years old and live in Long Island, NY. I had done some research on my own and happened to be talking to a friend about discovering the Medifast program, and to my surprise, she mentioned that her mother-in-law has had great success on it. To my happy surprise, her mother-in-law led me to this board and is none other than Mellowmom. :) I have such great support here in NY, and a friend helping me out/checking in from the West Coast. I look forward to getting to know you all as I start my weight loss journey.

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire

My friend is the one in Michigan, who just had her second child. I actually introduced them....she was at my apartment in college when her now hubby (Mellowmom's son) came over. The next day, he asked all about her, and the rest is history. :D

Day Two went well. I'm definitely in the withdrawal phase though. Felt pretty tired, and had a little bit of a cranky tummy, but I just keep telling myself that means the shakes are working!!

Can't wait to see my results this week. I look forward to getting to know all of you!! :)
