Being overweight is definitely not fun, and working in a beach in a food vendor, I knew the pain. I looked with envy, and pain as guys that were lean, and cut did not wear their shirt, and girls that looked like models admire them with passion.
I weighed 220 lbs, and it wasn't a pretty 220 lbs either. Some guys look tough and weighed that much, for me I simply looked disgusting.
I then learned about Medifast from my cousin, and early last year, I decided to try Medifast. Well, that day marked a turning point in my life. From that point on, I was saying good-bye to high blood pressure, and cholesterol.
How has the Medifast product changed my life? Well, my weight before the program was 220 lbs, and felt huge, ugly, and unhealthy. Every single day, I hated what I saw in the mirror. I became so disgusted that I simply did not even look at the mirror. Yep, I stopped looking. Why depress myself even further?
My cousin told me about Medifast, and encouraged me to buy their product. I checked out their website, and was pretty surprised to see so many glowing, positive reviews on the Medifast product. I knew I had to try it.. and I knew this could help.
So I bought a month supply of their shakes, and meals. I didn't think the 5 and 1 Plan was for me, so I just decided to stick with the Medifast liquid shakes. I had difficulty getting through the first week drinking the shakes.. They claim it tastes good, but trust me, the taste is simply unbearable for most of the shakes. However, my friends were very supportive of me, and encouraged me to stick with it.
During the 2nd week, it got better as I got used to the taste. I still missed eating french fries, bison burgers, and ice cream shakes though. However, when I saw I lost 3 lbs the first week, I became more motivated. I had to stick with the Medifast Product. I had to continue.
After the 2nd week, I lost an additional 4 lbs. And after 1 whole month, I had lost a total of 15 lbs. The guys at work didn't recognize my weight loss, but my wife did... she remarked about how slim I looked each and every week. My loving family also was huge key in making this diet work.
After 6 months on the Medifast product, I had lost 100 lbs total... Yes, 100 lbs. I couldn't believe it myself since the time passed by so fast. In fact, after 2 months I just stopped weighing myself, because I no longer was conscious of my weight. I felt healthier, and felt lighter, and knew I was losing weight.
I frequently visit the Medifast message board, so if you guys have any questions on my experience, feel free to ask me there. Medifast is definitely a product I would recommend to anyone looking to lose considerable weight.
