I recently decided to transition into maintenance mode. While losing a total of 40 pounds would have been a nice even number, I am beyond thrilled with losing 39 lbs! My original goal was to lose 35 lbs, so not only did I achieve my initial goal but I exceeded it!
Even though I have shrunk in size, I have grown in so many ways!
I had some concerns (changing what has worked so well) and shared those with my dietitian. After a pep talk from him and chatting with two Medifast blogging veterans (Kelly who is close to transitioning and Stephanie who has been successfully maintaining her loss for a year), my fears were alleviated. Talk about an enormous support group, with Medifast I have NEVER felt alone!
You know what…I got this! I really do! I know nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.
I have been reviewing the Transition Maintenance Guide to become familiar with how to gradually introduce foods back into my diet. The guide is easy to follow and breaks everything down. I have no fears.
I began my Medifast journey on January 1, 2012 (my official starting weight was 179 lbs and I was wearing size 8 – 10 pants and large shirts)! Here are current my numbers!
Current weight: 131 lbs
Current size: 4, small tops
Total weight loss: 39 lbs
I also ran 7 miles the other day like it was NOTHING! My usual running distance is 5 miles at least 3 days per week, my pace is getting faster and easier. I am healthy, fit and feeling phenomenal! I have my eyes on a 1/2 marathon later this year!
YOU could also be celebrating weight loss success! All it takes is making the decision to change!
