SP Premium


Well it has been decided.

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Last night my wife and I decided that I would be starting the Medifast plan. I will meet with my health coach today (I actually saw her last night at a Love Song concert and told her the good news), and order my first months worth of food. It looks like it will cost me about $250 to start my first month (I found a $50 coupon, WOO HOO). My Health Coach thinks that I would be a great Health Coach so she is trying to talk me into that side of the program also (We'll see). I definitely know many, many people who would benefit from the Medifast program but I want to be the guinea pig so to speak before I ask anyone else to make the commitment to the same program.
On paper it looks as though I will do well with Medifast as it is very similar to how I lost my first 130lbs, minus all the weighing of food and counting my calories.
I will continue to update you all on the ups and downs of my new challenge, this morning May 6th I weighed 318. My lowest weight has been 304 and that was approximately 8 weeks ago, but since that time I continued to workout but, my eating habits have not been good at all. About 3 weeks ago I actually hit a high of 332lbs, and since then I have gotten back to eating correctly. I still have about 100lbs that I would like to lose, which would have me somewhere in the 200-225lb range, and I think that will be perfect for me at 6' tall.
If there is anyone else who would like to start the program with me please send me a private message, I would really love to have a team with me so that we can support each other.

    I have a Spark Friend (in real life) who has done the Medifast thing if you'd like to chat with her about it: KERIBELLE. I think she said it was similar to Slimfast, but when Slimfast wasn't effective anymore, she switched to Medifast and had much better success. (She calls herself a "cat" - in that she can eat the same thing EVERY SINGLE DAY and not get tired of it.) Me, I get bored of something after a week AND I'm a picky eater!

    I am happy you have made this decision as long as you stick to it and it works for you. As far as the yo-yo numbers on the scale, I am very disappointed, I thought you were stronger then that. Come on buddy... let's get moving and kick the 300s out of the park!!! I'm here for ya.

    Take care and stay healthy
