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 anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
I felt the same way a week before, I am 5 days past now and know that I made the right choice. Its a big decision and you have been through a lot to get to where you are. keep.
To the group and asking questions. What I finally did was go back to the basics. Why did I go to the seminar? Why did I want the.
In the first place? So ask yourself the basic questions. What started you on this journey and think about what it will be like 6 months to a year form now. Keep.
But know what you are feeling is normal. Liz..

2years ago I went threw all the classes and such to have GBS I lost alot of weight and 2 months before I was going to have the surgary I backed out thinking I could do it on my own ... Well to make a long story short .. I gained the weight back. Then my husband had a heart attac and his health was in the dumpster.. his weight was out of control so he and I decided to go on the journey together we had our GBS on Dec 1st and he and I are doing great .. there are a few bumps along the way but in the end we have made the right chose and I'm sure you are making the right choise also..
Your new friend,.
There is a similar thread out there now, about the doubts etc. before.
It would be strange if you DIDN'T have doubts - this is a big deal! I had doubts up until they wheeled me into the OR - like most of the people on this site. Let me tell you though - it was the BEST thing I have ever done for myself and I'm so glad I didn't let my fear get the best of me! You have come this far, so you know this is what you need to do..
It reminded me of being pregnant and being terrified of the delivery lol it's gonna happen, you don't want to stop it, but knowing what's gonna have to happen to finally hold that baby is terrifying. In the end it is soooooo worth it!! :)..
My advice: MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY. I thought I was but I found in hind sight that I wasn't. I didn't have near enough information about exactly what was going to happen to me mentally and emotionally. The impact is huge but the rewards are great as well. It will be easy at first, the first 6months maybe 8. But it gets really tough really tough and if you don't do a lot of.
And get all the information you can make serious mistakes and hinder your progress which is what I did. I'm not saying wait or don't do it. I'm saying take this time to gather information,.
, get ready to work hard and fight....something that helped me immensley was "pouch rules for dummies". Good luck..
I am 11 weeks post op and this is the best thing I have ever done! I am shocked every morning when I look in the mirror. I have lost 62 lbs!!!!!.
Just hang in there and be patient. The first few weeks are tough, and about 2-3 weeks post-op I wondered what in the heck I had just done to myself. It is tough to get in the recommended fluid and protein. Just do as much as you can, your body is different for everyone else's. Just be patient and things get better with time and healing..
I promise you, you will be thrilled in about 2-3 months! I love the new me! JIM..
With me, it all came down to one thing, where will I be ina a year if I have it, where will I be in a year if I don't... I'm 6 days post op, it's been a bit of hell but feeling better each day and am so glad I did it.you have to decide that for yourself, I wish you all the luck....
As just about everyone says, all of us had second thoughts, mine was also as they were putting in the IV's on the operating table. I just kept thinking I'm doing this so I can live longer and be healthier there is so much out there I still want to experience and I want to do it all :).
I am 2 weeks post op and feeling like this is the best decision for myself that I have made yet and yes it was hard for me to do something good for me..
