I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Hi and welcome to the group. You'll find lots of good advice and support here. I'm having my.
On the 19th as well. A few days back there were several.
Threads about how we change during this process, but nothing to stress about! The changes are good ones! So keep a good thought, and keep posting...
That's not a very nice thing to say. You're going to be the same person you always were, you'll just look different. I had a friend of a friend who had GBS say she's become a bitch since she had the.
, I said that's because her inner bitch is closer to the surface. lol. Don't let anyone interfere with your decision, and congrats! You'll be so happy you did it..
You will still be you, just a different size, I had.
Two weeks ago today, and I still feel like me, just working on the fat/excercise part of me that was an issue before....
Good luck, you will do great......
Welcome to the group and dont let what others say get to you I am having.
On the 17 Nov so we will be in the same boat at the same time..
Welcome to the group. Only you can change you and you can stay that cute funny chick regardless of wether you are fat or not. Don't let anyone take that away from you. Good luck on your journey..
You're going to be the same you, only healthy. Good luck on your journey. It is well worth it!..
LOL, " she has such a pretty face, but have you seen her ass". This is what the ppl are really saying as you feed your face..
I know you're young and I guess beatiful, so why not have a nice thin, toned, muscular, heathy and active life NOW. Not in 5 years when you wake up onlybto still be fat with older skin and an older pretty face..
I know you'll do just fine so just do it and get your life on the road..
Welcome and you will be from now on known as the cute thin chick.. hahah Good luck on your journey this is a great place to find answers recipes and a encouraging pat on the back.. Congrats on joining our family....
Welcome! Look forward to hearing about your journey..
On 11/3/10. It is definitely a journey with a lot of commitment. Worth it? HELL YEAH! I can get used to focusing on me for a change....lol.
I just joined this support group today! I am having my.
On 11/19/10. I have many emotions.
Through me. Sometimes when I think about it I feel like I can not breathe. It is not the actual.
I am worried about, it is the after part :) I have always been the "cute fat chic". A fun, outgoing, loving person. I guess I am just nervous for the results. I have had many people tell me I will not be the same person on the inside as well as the outside, and it hurts my feelings, cause I like me!!! Any thoughts or suggestions on how to deal with the anxiety of it all?.
Very excited to be a part of this support group!.
Ashley isn't it amazinig that the same people who want you to be healthy are the same ones who are being NEGATIVE! My aunt had her.
5 years ago and the one thing she did NOT do was change who she was on the inside and I know I will not either!!!!....my aunt also vowed to herself to get rid of all the negative people in her life...she calls them TOXIC PEOPLE....... and let me tell you something.... I read someone elses post when ifirst joined a few months ago and it was about how people are negative and things like that.......
ALWAYS TAKE A NEGATIVE AND MAKE IT A POSITIVE....in EVERY SITUATION....... so the next time someone says something negative you just reply with a thank you for your concern but I am doing this for me not you...... they will get this clue! and if not...they aren't worth your energy.....
I did this with my boss (who is also heavy)... I told her about me needing time off and why and she said...."why you are not fat, you dont need that Lisa"...... my responce.."See this is WHY I do not tell certain people because I need support not negative feedback. I did not ask your opinion I was simply letting you know out of respect why I will be out"..she was mortified and felt horrible after. It was not my intention to make her feel bad but at the same time I was being open and letting her know why I needed personal time off...It is not required by law to do that...... she has been VERY supportive since and she quickly said her I'm sorry's..
We must think of the glass half full at all times because once that glass becomes half empty we make ourselves vulnerable to all the bad things that can fill that half empty part!!!!!!!!.
GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING...i LOVE this group and I am sure you will too.....super excited for your.
Coming up so quick!..
Just keep a positive attitude and ignore all of those people! They don't know anything about what you are going through. I have always been the cute fat chick too, but not any more! Now I'm going to be the cute chick...period! Good luck!..
That is so not right! My brother-in-law had GBS...he is 5'6" and was 400lbs. His grandchildren thought that after he had the.
He would not be the fun loving, joking, cut up kind of man that he's always been. How far from the truth that is!! The.
Does not change who you are on the inside, it only helps you change the outward appearance of yourself. It will help your self esteem and give you more confidence, but if they are looking at the fun, outgoing person that you are..NO it won't change that! Good luck on your.
And welcome to this group. I jump in from time to time to say my piece then I go back to my little room lol...
Didn't read all the responses but "those other people..." are nuts. Of course you will not be the same for you will be happier and healthier and more full of sunshine. Kind of like "reborn" and you will be shouting it from the highest mountains. They are just jealous because you are doing something to improve your life and they're not. Don't worry about anything and keep posting...
Anxiety is a pretty normal response to a major.
However, when you think about why you are going through with it you will find all the answers to why feeling good about your decision is a better thing to focus on..
There is little doubt that one year out from your.
Or probably much sooner your nervousness about the results will be completely resolved in the most positive ways..
