I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
Honey, Be happy for yourself and for finding a way to be healthy and a way that you will never be a yo-yo dieter again! Yea people will notice but who you tell about your.
Is your business! If it is someone not in your circle of friends, tell them your dieting and exercising, if you don't feel like it is their business to know what your health decisions are..
I totally understand about the up and down weight... We ALL do, it's why we made the tough decision to have GBS! Be thankful for the fact that this will be the last thing you do for yourself because this WILL WORK!!! So embrace the comments and the congrats that you will be getting, and get used to getting a lot more of them! You will learn to get used to it, this whole experience is a.
Curve from day 1 when you make the decision. And we all learn different things during this journey. Good luck..
It is hard in the beginning but just take all the compliments in cause they will keep encouraging you. It may actually be harder on family/friends who might be overweight hearing you getting all the compliments. My 2 sisters would get so irritated when I'd get a compliment cause they were always use to getting all the attention. You decided what you want them to know or not tell them anything at all. Goodluck :)..
You will love, love, love the compliments. After being fat for so long, looking awful, feeling awful........you just start feeling so good about yourself, that when people say something...........it's like you shine. Take them all in, it helps in the process and majorly with your self esteem..
I smile all the time now.......I put on my makeup, I do my hair, and I deserve all the praise I'm getting. GBS isn't an easy fix, it's hard. So enjoy them when you get them, smile and say thanks..
I'm very open and tell them of course I had to have.
To do it, but I did it, and don't regret it one bit..
It can bew an adjustment. I think I honestly went years with no compliments from girlfriends, especially. Oh my husband would say sweet things, even at my heaviest, but it was a SHOCK for me to hear them from previously SILENT friends..
I think the easiest way to handle it is to smile and say :"thanks." Simple, and done. Of course people are going to notice our weight loss....unless they are blind! But it's in OUR mind that the adjustment takes place. They also are probably trying to be encouraging....so take it for that and try to enjoy...
I usually just say "thank you for noticing". It gets a little more complicated when people want to know how I lost the weight. "eat right and exercise" just does not sound totaly honest. I am proud of my decision to do GBS and if they ask the "how" question I tell them. It's very interesting to see their reaction, especially if it is a funny face..
I know it's time to get new, smaller clothes when people comment on how the clothes are fitting. If I wear the appropriate size I think less people comment..
Good Luck, God Bless and we will be here for you when surg is over!.
I call these people my cheerleaders. When you lose a lot of weight people notice. Use the comments to encourage you...
