As I mentioned last week, I am committed to health with Medifast (read here), a fast, safe and effective weight loss system recommended by over 20,000 doctors! You can read more about it here.
Today concludes my first week on the program and I am impressed with my progress thus far! In just one week, I am down 5 pounds and 10 inches! Seriously, in just one week my clothes are fitting much looser!
What did I experience my first week on Medifast?
I was warned I may experience headaches and feel sluggish initially, and the first night was the worst. The headache lingered for several days, but by day 4 I was feeling good. Since then, I have had an abundance of energy and have enjoyed life normally.
I was worried about being hungry on this plan, but not at all! At night, I have to remind myself to eat my last meal because I am just not hungry. Basically, I am grazing all day long (every 2-3 hours). I do look forward to my lean and green meal each day, which has been a salad with organic vegetables and very lean protein. My entire family is eating much healthier as a result, which is a huge win!
I have tried a variety of Medifast foods and overall, I have been impressed with the variety. I was concerned with how the food would taste and I have been pleasantly surprised. Some items I have enjoyed, others I will use in recipes.
Since I already lead a fairly active lifestyle, I didn’t want to sit around for 3 weeks (you are not supposed to exercise during your first 3 weeks on the program so your body can adjust to the reduced calorie intake) but after a quick consultation with my Medifast nutritional consultant, I have been walking regularly and will resume my long jogs after the 3 week period.
I had family visiting this week and stuck to this program with ease (even being around tempting foods)! I also went to Whole Foods tonight and enjoyed my lean and green meal.
Week 1 loss: -5 lbs
Week 2 loss: Stay tuned until next week for my Sunday Shape-Up Report!
