WOW! MF is awesome!

Postby Elidh » June 12th, 2006, 8:10 am

Hi -

I have a life-long (adult) history of weight yo-yoing. Over the past 15 years, I have been on Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, LA Weight Loss, WeightWatchers, and Atkins (I gained 7# in one week on Atkins - hey, they said I could have all the butter, eggs, cheese, cream and steak I wanted- I took their word for it! :oops: ).

I always managed to keep the weight in check, because I was in the Army, and they make you weigh in every 6 months and you have to fall within an acceptable weight range. Since retiring 3 years ago, I have gained 20#! And this makes retirement not nearly as fun as it could be.

I wanted fast weight loss results to keep me motivated (WW is WAY too slow). In two weeks of MF, I have lost 8#!!! And the food is just fine! I hope I can keep it off once I reach goal!

Love this forum -what a nice group of folks you are!!

Thanks to you all and Medifast!

Yes I agree with you. MF is AWESOME! It has helped a lot of us regain some control over our life.

Keep up the great work.

Welcome!!Congrats on the retirement also. My hubby is in the USMC. He was 50 lbs overweight this time last year, but now he is finally under his max, he has been doing MF/southbeach since I started MF. We have both lost quite a bit. I know you will do great!

Welcome, Elidh!!

You bet you can keep it off!! Nancy, and other maintainers on here, are great role models for that. In fact, it's the example others set that Maintenance is very doable that most inspires me long term. (Short term, it's all the pics in the studio, the stories, and the anecdotes about how suddenly my comrades are aware of their emerging thinness.)

Welcome to the party!!
Here's to our mutual success! :buddies: --Diana
