Family vacations were planned around what I was able to do at my weight. I had reached the point where I couldn't walk longer than a few minutes without a walker. I was taking an excess of medications, including some of the strongest pain medications on the market.
I also took high blood pressure medication, hormone pills, water pills and I was insulin resistant. My doctor said I would need cholesterol pills, as well. I tried to lose weight but either couldn't or quickly gained back what little I lost.
I learned about Medifast through my chiropractor. He thought that if I lost weight it would relieve the pressure from my back and I wouldn't need rods inserted. I committed and saw 30 lbs* drop off of me in less than three months! Losing weight allowed me my doctor to start easing off of reducing some of my weight-related medications and I actually saved money because Medifast cost less than all of my co-pays!
I had no hunger or cravings with Medifast. My doctor ran a metabolic panel and found that Medifast was providing all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that my body needed.
After eight months, I lost 56 pounds* and reached my goal weight of 132 pounds. I have been married for over 30 years and it's like dating again! My husband constantly tells me how happy he is to have his wife back.
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.
