Yup, but... you might wanna make sure and wait for another person here to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...
Wearing *large* scrub pants because I have to, instead of because I like the extra room in them now..
Most of my knee pain, unless I run across a particularly evil stretcher that just won't go straight no matter what. lol.
Super strong cravings for carb-y foods, although now and again I'd kill for a big hunk of cornbread..

L, XL, and XXL shirts (can't wait for single digit pants bottoms!)...
Oh this is a good one. Thanks for getting this going!.
Carrying around Stella. That's what I called all the extra fat that was on my *ss. It's been like toting around another person!.
Having a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear..
Buying cute clothes even though I know good and darn well that they are too small!.
My snoring. The snore train is no longer running; lose the weight- snoring stops. My family is extremely grateful!.

Bye bye to the Herculean effort to put on a pair of jeans that I make up every excuse in my head as to why they still fit (they are still tight from going through the dryer...yesterday, They'll be loose after I wear them for a while, etc.) Those jeans are now almost too loose to wear anymore!.
So long back pain!.
I no longer feel the need for an afternoon nap since I'm sleeping better at night and I have more energy during the day..

Being able to walk up a flight of stairs without my heart pounding..
Sleeping better and only waking up to use the bathroom 15 times because of all the water I'm drinking..
Lol I can totally relate! This is why I have a strictly enforced cut off time for water intake, I stop at about 6 or 7 pm so that by the time I go to bed at 11 the most of it has been umm flushed out and I sleep through the whole night!..

1. Migraines (still AMAZED at this one!).
2. Heartburn and heartburn meds..
3. huffing and puffing to reach down and tie my shoes.

Ah. Heartburn. I totally forgot about that! An amazing thing of the past for me, too...
Horrible chainsaw snoring..
Pulling the seat belt allll the way out in the car..
Feeling ashamed and embarrassed just to be. Constant despondency..
Going to a thrift store and not fitting in the very largest men's shirt they had. That was ugly..
The bed was harder, the car was smaller, every day efforts seemed so much larger....
I may not be there yet, but I'm soooo grateful to be here now...
I forgot heartburn, too! As long as I go easy on the raw red bell pepper I don't have heartburn at all...
I can totally relate to so many of these! Especially the difficulty getting up and down off the floor and reaching all of the parts in the shower. A biggie that I was just realizing since I went on plan is that I've not had to use Mylanta at all! I used to wake up at least once a night with horrible indigestion and had to keep the Mylanta on my nightstand..
I know that my family is hoping that my snoring goes away or lightens up significantly...
1. Having to shop in the non-existant plus sized department at some stores, and shopping at Lane Bryant..

Buying clothes because they fit...not because I liked them...
