My 1st question is: What a great shortcuts you use when cooking or with certain Medifast recipes? Looking forward for any comment. Another question... I know there will be some that will say, "food is the reason you got fat" but I just want to say that I really miss eating. I went to a family dinner today and wanted to eat all the foods that I used to eat. I am 3 1/2 months out and down 90 lbs. I am very happy with the weight I've lost, I'm about half way to my goal.


Because I can't eat the things I love? I don't eat things I shouldn't but that doesn't stop me from greiving over it..

I am having a really hard day, just feeling a little down. We buried my uncle today and I guess I'm wanting to turn to Medifast food the way I always have. I will be glad later that I didn't eat too much but I still can't stop my head from wanting pasta, bread, and desserts...

Sorry to hear about your Uncle..

I am only 8 days out and although I don't eat what I am not supposed to, it doesn't help the head feelings. For instance, Hubby and I were at walmart the other night picking up some things for my puree stage. It was getting towards supper time and he decided to get a few things from the deli for his supper. Potato wedges and cheese sticks. I got a little upset because I knew what waited for me at home to fix was tuna salad. Tonight we went to a local family restaurant.

Not easy, but I got through it. I just keep telling myself the I am doing this for me...

I am grieving Medifast food as well. It's been my crutch my entire life - Happy? Celebrate with a big meal! Sad? Ice cream & cookies will fix that! Anxious? Chips, nuts, & buttered popcorn will smooth it out! I've been working on my head for the last 6 months, cause I know if I don't lose the brain fat along with my azz, the loss will be temporary. But man, changing my coping mechanisms & habits is challenging!!!..

Hi! Your doing great with your weight loss. I have to say when I first had my.


I wanted to eat all those foods that I no longer was suppose to. But I kept thinking about where and what I wanted to look like in the future and that seemed to help me. Plus my surgeon and my nutritionist drilled it into my head about the dumping syndrome that I'm afraid to eat anything that's not on my eating plan...

What a great loss! Imagine how much you would miss Medifast food if you were in a diabetic coma...or worse....

It's happening so fast for you, that I imagine the Medifast food thing will resolve given more time. Mourn the loss and celebrate the victory!.

Funerals are Medifast food factories and one of those "no rules" eating opportunities. Under all this may lurk a chunk of pissed off, that you are being denied your emotional medication, food...

Some days are like this, some days are hard and you miss the Medifast food and whatever purpose it served for you even if it was just the purpose of eating. I am 7 months out and some days still sneak up on me like that. Most days aren't like that though. I.


By the time you are getting these messgaes you are feeling better about it all. It really is eye opening to start going through all of this stuff life throws at us as well as all of the changes that come along with the.


My Husband lost his job about 3 weeks after my.


And I can remember clearly thinking "how am I gonna deal with this without food?" then the internal reply "thank god I had the.


So I can deal with it without food" It can be such a rollercoaster and sometimes the only thing you can do is hold on... and know this scary part will be over .....
