Question I have... Simple Medifast recipes that a 13 year old can do? Many thanks for any answer. Another question... I read on here every day though I don't post much. I did want to share my own experience though. Right now, I'm a few days over 7 months out.

Just today I was out with my family and ate half of a grilled cheese sandwich and I tolerated it okay. I've had a really hard time with tolerating things but it all seems to be getting better as of late.

Of the six jumbo shrimp on the plate, I ate four. I'm starting to tolerate what for me feels like a lot of food, though compared to what I ate prior to GBS it's really not haha. Anyway, it feels good to go to restaurants and order small plates and eat most of it, and not feel wasteful. At this point I'm able to live my daily life with Medifast food only being an afterthought and not a focal point, but am still able to feel "normal" in situations where eating is being done socially..

At 7 months out I've lost about 120 pounds. And I've started.

Running.

! Well, let me not get ahead of myself. I've started the couch to 5k program which is awesome! It combines intervals of.

Running.

And.

Walking.

And over the course of 9 weeks, you do more.

Running.

And less.

Walking.

, until finally you are able to run a full 5k. The program is set up for Mon/Wed/Fri.

Running.

, so on the off days I do.

Yoga.

And some cardio boxing on Wii fit. It's amazing how much I can move now! I've been.

Reading.

Fitness magazine and.

Exercise.

Is starting to become more of an interest and a hobby than a chore. I never thought I'd feel that way!.

It's crazy that in a mere 7 months my life has changed so much. I still have some bad days... occasionally I see people eating a whole sandwich and wish I could have just a "one day pass" for the experience... and occasionally I still throw up because I ate something my body wasn't ready for... but I have to say for all of you just starting out that it definitely gets better. And moving your smaller healthier body around can be amazing.

Free from the limitations of my former larger body. Free from the pain it would have felt from those jarring.

Running.

Movements. Free of wondering what I would look like wiggling and jiggling about on the sidwalk during my run..

I was so concerned about losing my boobs...losing my hair..... extra skin...all of those things are realities now. But they're nowhere near as bad as I'd feared, and the benefits outweigh them by a million..

I feel AMAZING...

Surgery.

In four weeks. I'm a bit concerned about how things will go afterward. I'm going to keep your story in mind, and know that it will get a little better each day. BTW, you should write more often!..

Thanks! I would say the beginning few months can be somewhat of a roller coaster on a few different levels...but I feel like things are balancing out and I feel great!..

Thank you for your story. As I prepare for this journey it is nice to know that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. You are truely a beautiful person..

Comment #5

Thank you for sharing your story. I am only 10 days out and I have had the question.

Running.

Thru my head WTH have I done. It is nice to know that in 7 months I may not be asking that question anymore. I have done really good not getting sick but I think "will I ever get to eat that hamburger again". I know that we have to give up alot to get healthy but I still think just one bite. I will get over it..

I think that all of us, no matter how great an attitude we have or how much we have changed our views of food....have isolated moments where we just think...I'd give ANYTHING to walk right into that restaurant and order a big fat juicy bacon cheeseburger (or pick your poison..but you get the point...) but honestly at the end of the day there is so much to be gained for that sacrifice that we're making. And at this point I can have one or two bites of my boyfriend's awful fatty heavenly delicious Medifast food haha... and surprisingly, just getting that little bite or two...totally does the trick. I think it's important to make sure that while you're intake is extremely limited, you love the things you are putting into your mouth. I love love love cheeses...hummus....i love.

Coffee.

.... I just make myself an adorable little plate of cheeses with a couple strawberries, take out my.

Coffee.

Grinder and make a fresh cup of.

Coffee.

Using my fine freshly ground beans....and I feel like I'm living it up in MY way. Everything I put into me is delicious and I make it beautiful and I have fun with it. And you get used to it, and you make it work!..

Great job!I am 7mo out today and lost 123 went from a size 22 to size average 5 but really 4-7.I have not felt this good in a long time. I also am a runner. Weighing 152 has it's perks but still want to lose more. Weight loss has definitely slowed some. Best to you..

You're doing freaking awesome Angie! I was in a size 28 when I started (and even that was snug...) and now I'm in a 16. I still have a lot to go and it's slowed some...but I think it's just that the weight loss isn't "a given" anymore. Now I have to work for it. I stalled for a few weeks, and after I started the.

Running.

, boom. 6 pounds gone in the first week. That was really motivating and now I've made so many positive changes. I appreciate the 120lbs head start and now with my smaller body it's EASIER to work for it because I can.

Exercise.

A lot more with out it hurting...know what I mean? Now I feel like everyone else. I can shop where everyone else shops and do what everyone else does. And even if still clinically obese, I don't feel like obesity defines me anymore...
