I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
Thank you for your awesome update. Your information will be very usefull for quite a few people. My sister and I both had GBS done in December 09. She can't eat much without dumping. A lot of Medifast food intake makes her feel sick. She gets headaches a lot too.
I on the other hand can eat just about anything I want without feeling ill. I eat anything I want, but I make sure it is only a small amount and that it is a healthy food. I eat until I feel full and satisfied. She started 12 days ahead of me and I am 10 lbs less than her. It gives an example of how our bodies try to hold onto our fat reserves when we are starving them.
It is a survival mechanism..
Keep up you losing, loser. :).
Oh, and I wanted to say that Lasik is fantastic. It's one of those things that you will have done and ask yourself, "Why didn't I do that sooner?" ha. I told myself that five years ago when I had it done. It's awesome! Instant sight. I remember seeing across the room and.
A sign that had small print on it the mintue I sat up from the table. Love, love, love it!!!..
Kimmie, you sure look HOT! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new hair do! Look at you just grinning from ear to ear, it makes me happy just to look at you! So glad you finally made that call to your NUT and she gave you the lo down, cuz I feel your pain. Love the new pics too, great job and thanks for updating us! - Diane..
All I can say is...
I am so glad I read this post..
Thanks so much for that information :)..
I'm new to this group but am loving hearing all the success stories. I'm glad you talked to your "nut" assuming a doc or dieatician and got on the right track. At 16-18 mos out most people should be phasing out the protein drinks and relying more on real food. Those are mostly for the beginning when you can't handle eating real Medifast food or maybe for an easy breakfast when you are on the go. I eat a protein bar for breakfast and love them. Hopefully you will be feeling better in no time and your weight loss will increase.
You're probly losing inches :) Goodluck..
You know we will take you any way you like, grumpy, miserable, bitchy, happy, sad...
You name it, we love having you around..
It sometimes helps having the group to bounce ideas off, to get some suggestions or even just have a rant, were all human. we all go through it..
You are lookig super fantastic my sweets..
Hot hot hot....
Wishing you well, and hoping to see a little more finger activity on posts....
We miss your input here.....
Love ya... as always....
Kimmie!!! You look fabulous, love the new do!!! :) I'm glad you posted this...you're explaining alot of what I've been going through, and to tell you the truth when I was eating more over the holidayI couldn't understand why I was loosing...now it makes sense...I'm not eating enough. (who would've thought we'd ever say that!!!) Thanks again for posting this thread...you look great!!! Keep on keepin on!!! :).
Maybe that's my problem too. I'm 12 months out now, big time stall in my weight loss. Same up and down 5 lbs since THANKSGIVING no less. Thanks for the info on not getting enough calories, because maybe I'm not, I do eat about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of Medifast food at a time for dinner, but feel a little guiltier if it's lunch or breakfast to eat more than say 6 oz. I will definately take a closer look at my menu because this plateau sucks!!!.
Btw - you look great and love your new hair style!!! I'm so jealous over the lasik, I would like to do that at some point too. Keep up the awesome work!!!!..
According to my program, at a year to year and a half out, you should be able to eat 1200 calories in a day and 1 cup to 1.5 cups at a sitting..
I can't see myself eating that much, but I'm only 5 months out. I do get 1000 calories a day though, mostly milk..
Kimmie - you look great!! Thanks for sharing the great information...
