Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
Great! I forgot to mention I am wearing real jeans, not the baggy ones you could smuggle guns in. lol..
Congrats!!! That is awesome! I have been able to walk a little more since I have lost some pre-op weight. Can't wait to be able to walk through walmart instead of riding.....
Cogratulations...I can't wait to want to go places instead of making excuses..
I am less that 2 weeks out and have dropped 14 lbs since last Tuesday. I have been taken off all my medications. I am only doing a vitamin regimen. Although I am only 2 weeks out I am already fitting in clothes from Old Navy and some regular stores that I never thought I would be able to fit in to. I look at myself in the mirror and dont only worry about how I look physically but have learned to respect myself and appreciate the person looking back. I am a mom to a 4 year old and it honestly gives me great pride to see my son opt for things like carrots and apples instead of fries b/c those are the examples I am setting at home..
I live on a 3rd floor and I am amazed that I am able to go up and down the stairs without having to stop for air or fatigued..
I am looking forward to taking pictures with my son and my family since I always avoided them b/c of how I looked and being more involved with my son..
Congrats on your success so far and enjoy your concert. Have a blast!.
You have a good time. It really feels good to do things we couldn't do before. Mine is just the simple things in life, like.
Without getting out of breath and not sweating profusely from just getting groceries. Looking forward to all the things I can do later too...
Awe that is such good news. You are doing an awesome job, keep up the good work and enjoy the concert with your family. :)..
Well I would never walk anywhere. We had friends 4 houses away and when we'd have a fight night or even social party I'd drive my car. 4 houses away. Now they live 6.5 miles away and I often ride my bike and have walked there many times..
I've walked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back in a day 15.5 miles, and I looped Mt Whitney up and back in a day last month. That was about a 25 miler. Now God willing and weather permiting I'm.
From the desert floor of Palm Springs to the snow capped peak above next week. 6000' vertical feet of elevation gain..
These are just a few of the things I can do now that I can see my dick! LOL.
Oh luc thanks for that lovely graphic image.....
I am pre op...dieting lost 20 more pounds (have been losing weight very s l o w l y over the last 5 years without.
) My husband also lost 20 pounds because he is our "cook" and I told him "you have to work with me here... it is life or death for me"... so anyway he finally went to something active and outdoors with me...he never has before...(to tired and achy to walk much). We went to the balloon fiesta and had a blast...it was great to see him having so much fun! I thanked him so many times for joining me on this weight loss deal...FINALLY...we have both been obese since marriage and have missed so much fun.....
Thanks Less...I'm new to the group but you have been an inspiration! I too look forward to doing some things I've never done before. I am waiting,,,not too patiently to hear from the insurance company regarding my approval...
