One Year Later #Medifast Update

I transitioned into Medifast maintenance mode at the end of April 2012. It has been well over a year now, I’m sure you are wondering how I’m doing? So, here’s the scoop! I have maintained my weight loss for well over a year now. Sure, I have seen some fluctuation but I know moderation is key! I do splurge and enjoy various foods and beverages, BUT I also use Medifast products to stay healthy since they are packed with vitamins and taste great. I still graze throughout the day (remember, on the 5&1…

Wordless Wednesday: #Medifast Buddies

Meeting people online can sometimes be strange. You think you know someone by their blog, then meet them and realize they are not what you expected. I am SO THANKFUL that is not the case with my local blogging friend, Stephanie. We met a few years ago and have had a constant friendship. Our sons are almost the same age with similar likes, so it makes getting together fun for ALL OF US! She is also my inspiration when it comes to running and Medifast! Perhaps a little goofy in the…

New Medifast Tomato Basil Bisque Soup Is Delicious!

Medifast recently added a new soup to their line-up, Tomato Basil Bisque! I just had the opportunity to sample it. As you can see from the photos, I scraped my bowl clean. Honestly, the soup is wonderful. It is creamy, has chunks of sun dried tomatoes and lots of herbs. I am a huge tomato basil soup fan and this did not disappoint! It is extremely satisfying, those on the Medifast program will enjoy this delicious meal. The soup has 110 calories, is gluten free and as always, packed with…

New #Medifast Products Will Keep Your Taste Buds Happy

I’m excited to share my thoughts on Medifast’s three newly released products: Macaroni & Cheese, Fajita Seasoning Mix and Brown Gravy Mix! I tried the macaroni & cheese and WISH this meal was available when I was on plan, I would have enjoyed it every single day! It’s a definite comfort food that you don’t have to feel guilty about. Tasty and satisfying! Creamy and delicious! I think Medifast knocked it out of the park with this one! My exact phrase to Medifast was “Holy Macaroni” when I gave them my…

One Year #Medifast Comparison + Cross One Off My Bucket List!

My weight loss success has inspired others I know to join Medifast. To date, total weight loss from 5 of my friends/loved ones totals 140 lbs! Not joking. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY POUNDS! That’s insane. So proud of each and every single one of them, they know who they are! Keep up the great work, simply amazing! Now, here is the kicker. Last year (November 2011) I attended a holiday event called ICE (it’s a beautiful frozen ice sculpture display that is kept at a frigid 9 degrees, hence the…

Medifast Update – YOU Are Worth It!

I receive a LOT of questions about the cost of Medifast and whether the program is worth the investment. My response is typically “are YOU worth the investment?“. If you are looking to improve your health, appearance, confidence AND willing to make a commitment, then YES it is worth it. The cost for 5 Medifast meals is about $11 per day. Think about how much money you spend at coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries, the grocery store, etc. Once you do the math, you will realize $11 a day is not unreasonable. BUT,…

Another Medifast Success Story + New Coupon Code For Free Products

It has been months since I have written a Medifast update. I have been successful transitioning into to my “new normal“. I know my limits and recognize my triggers for eating (stress, emotions, boredom, etc.). I enjoy eating healthy and hate the way my body feels when I do not! I also know that lacing up my running shoes is a terrific way to burn off steam, instead of shoving comfort foods into my mouth. Since my son is now in school, I no longer run with a jogging stroller. Last…
