I was so tired of being in pain all the time. I was almost 250lbs! I has so many aches and pains just getting out of bed and moving all day. It was time to act. It was time to take control and take back my life! However, I didn’t know how. Medifast has not only help me regain my energy and my life, but it helps me stay motivated and on track to becoming an even better me!
My story starts with a 6 month blood panel yet adding another pill, making a total of 9 per day. I’d had a stroke at 38, had high blood pressure, diabetes (only pills so far) and high cholesterol. I’ve tried several diets before, but none really worked for me. At 42 my doctor decided surgery was my only option. After doing research and speaking to many people who have had the surgery, two things worried me. 1 if your BMI is above 50 it could cause complications. 2. the surgery would make you eat less for a period of time, but never taught you how to eat. This is where the real journey begins! On February 25, 2016 I went to see Danielle and Robin at Medifast. My plan was to loose enough weight to have the surgery. After 21 weeks on the program I had lost over 100 pounds faster, easier and healthier then most people who have had surgery, so I cancelled my surgery and kept going. Now I have people who have had weight loss surgery asking me how to loose weight because they have either stopped loosing or are gaining it back. On April 25, 2017 I had met my goal weight. I have lost 178 pounds and working to keep it off. I went from a waist size of 54 to 36, shirt size from 5X to XL! Even my shoe size changed! Medifast has been the answer for me! It can be for you too! Follow the plan! Let Medifast help change your life like it has mine!
Medifast works! The best thing is the weekly check-ins and counseling I received. It has been invaluable to my success and motivation. I was borderline Diabetic when I started and my doctors have noted my levels are within normal range now. The added benefit is that I look great and am much happier with myself. Choosing this program was me putting me first for once. My health is the most important especially for the sake of my family who wants me around for years to come.
I had lost and gained the same 20 pounds for years. I could never seem to loose any more than that and it was frustrating! My blood pressure and blood sugar was high and my DR was talking about starting me on medication, which I absolutely did not want to do!
When I saw the results a friend was getting with Medifast I decided to give it a try, and I am so glad I did!
They took all of the guess work out of what I should eat. The plan was so simple and I started seeing results the first week! I was able to focus on retraining my mind and to better understand what I should be eating and how to control my portions.
I lost 45 pounds in 5 1/2 months and feel incredible. My blood pressure and blood sugar are in the normal range again and I am not constantly tired anymore.
My counselor, Danielle, is amazing! She has been supportive every week and always answers all my questions and addresses my concerns.
Medifast works and I am so grateful!
I’m a state trooper. A police officer should be able to run, jump, and move much faster than I was! It was time. It was time for me to take responsibility for my performance on the job. It was time for me to take my life back!
Since beginning the Medifast program I haven’t just lost weight. I have more energy. I can move faster and perform better than ever on the job! But most importantly, I have my pride!.
My journey began a little over 3 months ago. I was curious about Medifast after seeing the results that one of my high school friends experienced. She inspired me to finally do something about the 80+ lbs I had gained over the last 12 years. I had tried to diet on my own and exercised religiously, and actually did manage to lose about 15 lbs. However, as soon as I stopped dieting it all came back plus another 20-25 lbs. I stopped exercising, got lazy and basically just resigned myself to being a plus-sized girl. The turning point for me was our cruise to Cozumel in February. I had to buy so many clothes because nothing fit anymore. It was depressing. When we got back from our cruise, I contacted my friend to see if Medifast was something I could live with and have success. As my friend Amie says “Being skinny feels better than ______ tastes” You fill in the blank – whatever your weakness may be.
My very first visit to the clinic on Coursey was the week before my son’s birthday. The first few days were kind of rough, but Danielle and my friend Amie coached me through it and I began seeing results almost immediately. The sweet cravings were gone. As the weeks went by, and more pounds melted off, I got more and more confident that I could really do this! I could absolutely lose 80 lbs and not be miserable doing it! This is by far the easiest diet I have ever done. I got tons of help from Danielle and my friend Amie. I got recipes from several places that specialized in low carb cooking.
Thirteen weeks into the program, and I was down 40 lbs! Those favorite pair of Levi’s that had been sitting in the back of my closet for years were my first real goal. And now they’re almost baggy. So now I have a new goal – the little black dress that I never took the tags off of….. then after that it will be my favorite GAP jeans…. then that little red Ann Taylor dress…. my goals are attainable!! Medifast WORKS!
