My social life was non-existent and I didn't enjoy being in public because I felt uncomfortable with the way that I looked. I stayed on the couch all day playing video games. I only ate once or twice per day, but I ate large quantities of food, and the weight started piling on. I had a 42-inch waist and wore XXXL shirts.
My wife started researching weight-loss options. When she discovered Medifast, she had a difficult time finding anything negative about the program. I was inspired by other people's success stories.
After realizing that we were spending $600-750 each month on fast food, I agreed to try Medifast for five weeks. I started my weight-loss journey and made a pact with myself - if I lost weight in the first five weeks with Medifast, I would continue. I saw results in the first week!
I reached my goal. I was down 114 pounds!* I started the program weighing 304 pounds and now weigh just 190 pounds. My shirt size no longer includes Xs!
My family and friends can't believe how much weight I lost with the help of Medifast. Friends that I hadn't seen since starting Medifast didn't recognize me!
I feel that I have motivated people to look at weight loss as a lifestyle change. Medifast is not a bandage - it's a new way of life and I am living proof that it works.
Results vary. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 PlanŽ is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.
