I wanted to feel good about myself, be healthier, enjoy activities with my family, and be able to wear clothes that I loved, but never felt that I could.
Before Medifast, I avoided social situations with friends that would take us out in public because I always felt like the fat girl among all my thin and beautiful friends. I remember huffing and puffing just going up a couple of flights of stairs, and I knew I had to change drastically because I was getting scared.
I asked a friend how he had lost weight, and he just said "Medifast," which I had never heard of. So I immediately went online and ordered two weeks (of the Meals) to see if I could stick to it.
I knew within three days that I would stick with this and that it would change my life. I lost 4 lbs the first week! I loved knowing that it was doctor-recommended.
My blood pressure is down. I sleep well, and my energy level is increased. I [ran] my first 5K with my sons at their college at the end of April, . My husband and college aged kids are so proud of me. I truly believe Medifast helped me touch the lives of others and that is such an incredible feeling.
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.
