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 know..
First of all>>>CONGRATULATIONS!! So many milestones, it is simply amazing and I can't wait to join you on those "firsts". Second, yes I have noticed that your posts lately have had more of a "long-term" focus and I just wanted to thank-you for that. Many times when I seem to get stuck on negative thoughts, I can always count on your posts helping me to turn my thinking around. You seem to be a very in-tune person and I'm glad that you are part of this support group. Carolyn..
Another great post, my man. Enjoy the new you!..
Happy day to you too Jerry! So proud and happy for you!!! Way to go and keep up the great work. This journey is not for the faint of heart...
WOW WOW WOW and yes....WOW..
Excellent results for a great guy. and your nowhere near finished...
Well done Jerry, you know photos will be required to show off the new you....
The girls wont rest... it is like YOU HAVE TOO....
Woot Woot Woot Woot Jerry!!!! Congrats, how awesome to be able to say all those things!!! :).
Luv ya...xoxo erica..
Thats awesome, lots of wows to be proud of. I'm sure you are feeling much better now than when your journey started. Congrats on everything!..
Ok, it's been a bit since I have posted any personal wow moments about myself, but we should celebrate the small victories along the way, right? The past couple of weeks have gone especially well - several things seemed to come together at once and so I wanted to share:.
I'm actually now at 190. I held off on any announcement because I plateaued at about 200 for 2-3 weeks. And before anyone asks, yeah, I got a little obsessive about the scale for a while - better now that I am solidly under 200..
2. Lowest weight in at least 30 years.
I know when I entered college I was around 210. Don't really remember being 190..
3. BMI is now 24.8.
Just slightly under the upper limit of the 'normal' range. Don't know if I've ever had a BMI in the 'normal' range - I suspect not. I've always been overweight. My starting last year BMI was 37.8.
4. Back in blue jeans.
Most of my weight was in my belly. Blue jeans had become uncomfortable for me many years ago. On Saturday I purchase my first pair of blue jean in at least 20 years - size 36. They feel great..
This journey has not been easy by any stretch of the imagination but the effort is definitely paing off in very big ways That why (as you can tell from my recent posts) I've been so focused lately on the keys to long term success - I have a very strong desire to permanently maintain what I have already achieved - and more...
Your day goes well...
Doing the happy dance here for you Jerry! Now will you please change that scary baby picture we would LOVE to see the "new" you! lol - great job, and keep it up (or off) - Diane..
Yay Yay and double Yay!! am so very proud of you!! You are such an inspiration, I always look forward to your posts, they are uplifting actually there are a few of you who I look forward to.
Thanks again!! and keep up the good work!..
That is awesome, it is post like these that really inspire me. Great job...
Congrats for all the wow moments. Your picture doesn't begin to do you justice. (plus all of us who know we have yet to face hair loss are getting really scared.).
Your recent posts have kept us all on track for thinking this journey through. Thanks for being there..
Absolutely FANTASTIC!!! I am very happy for you and proud of you. Plateaus can be very daunting at times. I am in one now and how if changes soon..
Not that I don't admire your charming avatar, but I would like to put a face to Mr. Insightful. You've made me ponder many questions and ideas lately. Please post a picture?..
Jerry, my mentor, my inspiration, I couldn't be happier unless that was me. And according to you, it will be soon. It is so good to hear that it is being done so that we all know we can do it too. My whole gang is giving you a big "way to go" cheer..God bless you...
Congrats that is so wonderful and so happy and proud of you. I love your positive posts concerning the future and your dedication to maintaining what you've achieved actually inspires me to keep myself on track so thanks for that :)..
Congrats Jerry........I'm so very proud of your accomplishment..
I can't wait to get to Onederland, although I'm not expecting it till over the summer sometime...
Thanks all for your very kind and encouraging words. I've gotten far more out of my participation here than I ever imagined I would. It has helped me to see my journey not from just one pair of eyes but from dozens. We are not of 'one mind' here - lots of opinions, lots of different suggestions, approaches, perspectives, philosophies, and solutions. Through that diversity and sharing of stories, sometime simple, sometimes painful, I am finding things that work for me..
Greek yogurt saved my life. Devrom saved the lives of my wife and my co-workers. Seriously! Sometimes it's the little things. Often, it was the posts I just read and never replied in - just the perspective helped. Your very kind words today have added to my commitment going forward. Thank you...
It all sounds so great!.
Keep up the good work!.
Some huge wow moments for sure. I am very proud of you, as you must be of yourself!.
Enjoy every minute of your success!..
Congrats...so many wow moments! be proud of yourself and accomplishments and all the people you help on your journey!..
Congrats Jerry !!! Your words touched me.HUGS and KISSES........
Ok Buzz said what I was going to say. WOW WOW WOW WOW !! Congratulations to you Jerry...
