Sunday Shape-Up Report With Medifast Week 9

At this point, Medifast is simply routine. I don’t stress about dinner plans, I know we will enjoy lean protein and vegetables. I don’t take a list to the grocery store, I spend most of my time in the fresh produce, seafood and meat areas (with the exception of a few items in diary). I have a new found love for making dinner, we have been trying new recipes and eating foods we never knew we liked such as salmon! I typically purchase the meat and/or seafood on sale at Whole Foods, just to add some variety into our diets.

If I am running errands or taking a jog, I throw a Medifast bar, puffs or bites in my jogging stroller. I ALWAYS have water with me, that is one thing you’ll never see me without. Medifast has given me the tools to succeed no matter where I am or what I am doing.

I stayed on plan most of the week except during the NBA All-Star game. I attended the game (you can view my photos here) and enjoyed a couple of light beers. I knew in exchange, I’d increase my cardio and make up for it. I did not see it as a moment of weakness, if I had been weak I would have eaten junk food too and totally blown my diet. Instead I ordered rotisserie carved turkey (held the bun and sauces, did not eat the skin AND asked for extra slices of tomatoes instead of homemade potato chips)! Now, the old me would have said “Screw it, I’m at the NBA All-Star game and I’m taking the night off. Bring on the greasy pizza and nachos.” but those thoughts didn’t even cross my mind! My success with Medifast has helped me grow in many aspects!

Here is my weight loss breakdown over the past 9 weeks.

Month 1: -19 lbs

Month 2: -7.5 lbs

Week 9: -4 lbs

Total weight loss to date since January 1, 2012: 30.5 lbs


I am 4.5 lbs away from my goal weight now. I hope to celebrate hitting my goal weight by my 35th birthday (in 10 days), so we’ll see if that happens!

***YOU too can lose weight and have amazing results! Stop feeling miserable and say goodbye to those extra pounds!*** 

I honestly wish I knew about Medifast years ago! Weight has been a sensitive subject for me! I have been unhappy with my appearance since having my son. I have been active but just couldn’t get the food aspects and diet to go hand-in-hand. Going shopping used to make me cringe, so I found myself hiding in clothing that was just not flattering! Now, I cannot wait to try on new clothes! I love finding items in my “maybe someday I will squeeze back into that” pile and realizing it falls off me now!

If you are contemplating the cost, remember this. YOU are worth it! YOU deserve to be healthy AND happy!

  2. Wow, a 4lb loss this week? AMAZING! I’m also finally starting to get into a groove as far the the Medifast plan goes and not thinking about the diet constantly as I was the first few weeks. How exciting that you’re so close to reaching your goal 🙂

  3. Hi Mariana, I was completely shocked with 4 lbs this week. I guess since last week was a small number, this week made up for it! I am very excited to almost be at my goal!

  4. Hi Kristen. Medifast is a fantastic program that I recommend without hesitation. As a blogger, companies reach out for product reviews and evaluations. I was fortunate to be contacted by Medifast. In all honesty, I wish I had known about this weight loss program years ago because I wouldn’t have flinched to purchase it. I have struggled with my weight since having my son, so I am thrilled with the rapid success I’ve had with Medifast. I have been 100% satisfied with my progress and never dreamed I’d be wearing the sizes I am today.

    This journey has not only been about weight loss, though. I have become healthy again, stopped putting myself on the back burner, adopted healthy eating habits for my family and eliminated stress eating routines. Most importantly, I am happy with myself and confident again.

    This is a safe, doctor approved program that works. It’s an honor to represent such a fantastic product, I feel Medifast has given me my mojo back! 🙂
