Good question... I dunno 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 help you..
Really beautiful post. You have it exactly right as far as I'm concerned. I've felt for some time that I was wearing a disguise, and I can remember when I was gaining weight, that I wanted to be invisible. Time to come in to the daylight and be okay with being a less-than-perfect human being who is really OK with who she is...
It's a life changing.
My mom said even my personality has changed.. I.
That's a good thing. lol.
I enjoyed your post. I agree with feeling the shedding of what is weighing me down. With the help of the GBS I will be able to live life fully with my children by actively participating..
Due to many medical issues plus the weight I have been an OUTSIDER looking in for a long time. I feel as this will be a 'NEW' journey for me and my children to experience because I will be able to do NEW things..
I love how you expressed your thoughts and feelings I'm sure I'm not the only one that can relate with it :)..
That was such a beautiful post....finding that person who is in my core....unfiltered by the fat surrounding it..
I have never, ever, that is never been thin, I was the chubby baby, the chubby girl, the it's a shame she has a pretty face girl. The overwieght teenager, the brunt of all jokes. But I always knew if they could see inside I was a great person...I was not my outside...I was the person that was inside..
I have lived like this for so long, I am not sure how I will react when the outside is gone. When I don't have to work so hard to just be me..
I spent time with a young girl this weekend who has just shed 150 pounds dieting. She told me that she just keeps looking and looking at herself in the mirror. She said to me...just wait...people are going to see you..
I was taken aback...I thought people already saw me, take me or.
Me...here I am, always have been. For pete's sake, I sing on a stage with a microphone, (no helmet with horns)..I have sung in front of several thousand people...I am seen....
But what if I am not, and just didn't know it....how awful....
I think that I am in for an eye opening experience. Truth is, I do not want who I am to change. I like me...I would like to loose some of my fears and hang ups...but other then that...I'm not bad. I just want my relationship to Medifast food to change, and my body to be healthy..
