Sunday Shape-Up Report With Medifast Week 5

by on 05/02/12 at 8:37 pm

Another week in the books and I remained 100% committed to the Medifast program. I even visited a bake shop and walked out with only 2 cupcakes – for my son and husband! I thought that would be tough, but it wasn’t. I watched them devour their cupcakes as I enjoyed a S’mores Crunch Bar (one of my favorites)! Then, we visited Epcot this weekend and I enjoyed walking around the park without sampling food and wine in all the countries. I am impressed with my will power, I am so focused on hitting my ULTIMATE weight loss goal (which is losing 16 more pounds)!

I have enjoyed trying new recipes for my lean and green meals. I have fallen in love with some new dishes thanks to Sandy’s Kitchen (you MUST check out her Medifast recipes). Even my family enjoys the food I have been making!

I also logged approximately 27 miles of walking/jogging this week. I am thankful to feel well enough to workout again! In addition, I added free weights and playing sports. With all the sweating, I also increased my water intake. My appetite was definitely insane, I found myself counting down the minutes until I could eat my next Medifast meal. After a quick chat with my dietician, I started eating 2-3 oz of protein before working out. This has been making a huge difference, I am not feeling sluggish or hungry.

Unfortunately, the scale didn’t budge this week. But, on a positive note…I didn’t gain either! I am still losing inches, so that is a huge positive! I am hoping I haven’t hit a plateau already, but if I have…it just means I have to work harder and change up my routine. I am already in a healthy BMI, so I’m sure the additional weight loss will be tougher.

    I love my Bob jogging stroller. I throw my kid in and we take off. Otherwise, I’d be trying to find the time to workout w/o having a toddler jumping all over me. :)

    @John, congratulations on taking the step to join Medifast and get healthy! The first week is definitely the toughest, just keep drinking water. Have the headaches hit you yet? Thankfully, it’s just temporary!

    Sandy’s Kitchen has the best recipes, I have not been disappointed at all. My husband has also lost close to 20 lbs as a result of eating healthier! So, it’s been a win-win situation for my family.

    If you have ANY questions at all, do not hesitate to contact me! I cannot wait to hear how successful you are!

    Thanks, Jess. I’ve had a few instances of minor headaches but so far have been able to work through it. Today was better than yesterday, so I like the trend :-)

    I’ll definitely keep you posted on my progress and look forward to hearing about your success too! Awesome also to hear about the healthful impact on the whole family!
