Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Odalisque, thank you for your words of encouragement. It is always great to know that somebody has or does feel the same way as me. I have great support from my fiance. Although, my Mother is a whole other story. She was supportive at first, but not so much any more. Any time we speak of "the surgery" it ends with both of us in tears and my Mother.
, "I just don't want you to die, is that so bad?" I know that I will not have her support throughout this and that kills me the most. There are many people that I could care less about their opinion, but my Mother is not one of them. I NEED her support, but I know that I will not have it. It makes the entire struggle that much harder...

Hi lisa.when I read your post you sounded so much like what I went through.no one had cold feet more than me I went up dale and down dale.lost.

And just couldnt do it at the last moment again because of family problems, I lost a brother that year age 44 suddenly and my mum had been quite ill and I had cared for all my family and nursed mum, my brothers were afraid for me and all there concerns must have affected me but I went back and had my.
Dec 16th after seeing a psychologist at the hospital and talked it all through. maybe you need to talk it over some more to alley any fears, it is so normal what you are feeling honest,the doctor even spoke to my son at his level as he asked the dr if I was going to die.the dr was wonderful and spoke to my son at his level and reassured him.u could tell your mum that you have a very well experienced surgeon and I'm sure he will be, I'm in england and went with a well experienced surgeon. I am 9wk out now and down 56 pounds.i am back exercising now and driving and feel much better for the weight loss, you will know when the time is right for you, dont rush your decision,good luck and post me anytime, good luck..
