First off, Anyone have a special Medifast menu planned for Cinco De Mayo festivities - recipes? Thanks for any comment. 2nd question I got is.. I have not been bable to.

Lose weight.

For a long time.I started taking.

Metformin.

And.

Testosterone.

After Christmas, then started the.

Surgery.

Trip after the first. In the mean time, the.

Metformin.

And.

Testosterone.

Seem to be working and I am losing about 3-4 pounds a week. If I am losing at that rate for the rest of the time, I may want to reconsider.

Surgery.

Opinions?..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

I have to tell you I went through the same feelings.. I lost 30 friggin pounds on the.

Liquid diet.

Before.

Surgery.

.. but thats it.. how long can a guy live on liquids alone.. I mean damn!. When I went in that day for.

Surgery.

And thought about this.. thinking.. okay I lost 30 pounds and it was fairly easy.. it was because I had a goal in mind for ONCE in my life.. and was able to do what I needed to do.. I know I could have never stayed on tha tdoet to lose what I have lost..

It is all about a lifestyle change.. and focusing on ourselves and being there for the long term for those we love... fad diets and crap like that are a thing of the past.. I needed this tool.. and the ability to get my metabolism moving!!!...

You have to ask yourself.

How many times have you lost 30-40 lbs to only gain it back and then some????.

I know for me the answer was to many.. I lost 24 lbs before RNY on 1/25/10 but I never thought about changing my mind. Have lost 37 lbs since and my BS are great with no meds...

The voices, like an angel on one shoulder and the devil (food) on the other, are really about the fear of having.

Surgery.

And some 12 step guilt, that when all this is over and I have lost 200 lbs, it will still come down to "can you keep it off?" Last time I lost 150 lbs, I gained 140 pounds on anti-depressant meds. I was.

Working out.

5 days/ wk,.

Aerobics.

3X/wk at 6am and.

Dancing.

20 hrs / wk. And still gained it all back and more. Cold feet is the biggest problem with 6 mos waiting. Reviewing all the details is one thing, but overlearning is possible.....

I lost 39 lbs on my pre-surgery diet. I started it on July 30th and on Sept. 18th was down that 39 lbs..

That's what 1 1/2 months. Like Ron said.......I had a goal. For once in my life.......I was focused on the end result.....my.

Surgery.

..

I had lost and gained, lost and gained, lost and gained. Always gaining another 10 lbs more than I lost. I was sick of doing that yo-yoing. I needed something that was gonna work, and for me this was my only fix..

I'm 5 1/2 months out, counting that 39 I lost prior, I'm down 108 lbs. I feel so much better, physically, emotionally and spiritually..

I know that your feelings are going all over, pre-surgery nerves, but you very well know that when you stop doing this diet, your gonna gain..

Some people do go back to eating all the wrong things after.

Surgery.

, and they can and do stretch the pouch and can gain back all the weight they lost. You have to know this is a lifestyle change, and be ready to commit to that. If not you can and will fail..

I know of a couple people in my hometown that have gained back close to 50 lbs. They also eat everything. They don't mind the dumping or diarrhea, as long as they can eat whatever they want. Well, I don't like to get sick at either end, so I'm sticking to my rules..

You need to decide if you can, too. It's such a personal choice. I wish you luck in your decison, whatever it might be..

OMG I had the same internal struggle, I felt like Fred Flinstone with one of me on each shoulder... I really was impressed that I lost 15 lbs in 19 days, that was CRAZY! Humm I can do this without.

Surgery.

... Yea I have been down that road FAR too many times. I needed to kick myself in the rear and do it so Dr Pepper can never call my name again. Had I not had this.

Surgery.

Yea I would give up soda for 6-9 months, maybe longer, but never for life, never... 100+ calories a can, 3-5 cans a day... soda alone could have killed me, nevermind the McDonalds I vowed to never eat again 100 times....

I needed this tool too, it gets me to say NO when I would have failed myself eventually!.

Good Luck, get the.

Surgery.

, you don't want to be here next year saying, "I wish I just followed through last year..."..

We have probably all been through one form or another of this. Go with your internal feelings...will you REALLY be able to keep it off ? This tool has helped me to keep the 208lbs off and now I am going to stop bitching about the last 20-25 so I can get on living! You have helped me out indeed THANKS!.

By time you go through the steps to actually get to the.

Surgery.

Date you will know if it's the medicine helping you loose weigth or if it isnt gonna last. I couldnt take.

Metformin.

Cause of side effects and they put me on.

Actos.

And gained weight even more..

I had the struggle with should I or should nt I for a long time but when they finally approved my.

Surgery.

I thought to myself it would be nice to have some help with the eating problem and I had my.

Surgery.

On june 22 last year. the only regret I have is that I didnt do it years ago when I had the chance..

I have lost 152 pounds in alittle over 81/2 months and feel great especially physically. My diabetes is completely normal without medications and/or shots. My A1C is 5.3.

I say go through the motions for the.

Surgery.

And when it comes if you dont want to do it you can cancel. Good Luck and I understand it is a very , very personal decision...
