My Medifast Journey - 50lbs lost!

As you may know, I have been doing the Medifast weight loss program since the end of June 2013. To date, I have lost 50lbs! This is huge for me!

First, if you're not familiar with the program, let me tell you about it. Medifast is a weight loss program that delivers meals to your home. You get 140 meals each month. You pick and choose which meals you would like so it's totally a custom program. From there, you choose 5 of their meals per day and eat one meal of your own known as a lean & green meal.

As I explain in my article at Weight LossTriumph, Medifast has tons of variety when it comes to their meals. From pretzels to brownies to bars to oatmeal, there is something for everyone. For the lean & green meal, you can choose a portion of a protein such as chicken or fish and add in a portion of vegetables that are on plan. You get to eat 6 times per day, 2-3 hours apart.

I am a self proclaimed food addict who likes to binge. Since being on Medifast, I no longer crave those off plan foods and am rarely even hungry. There are times when I have to "force" myself to eat because I need the nutrition. Speaking of nutrition, all Medifast meals are designed with nutrition in mind. They are all low calorie and low carb but also contain lots of protein, fiber and essential vitamins that your body needs.

The basis of Medifast is that after 3-5 days of being on the program, your body will hit a state of optimum fat burning state called ketosis. Once in ketosis, your body will burn fat quickly. I started the program at the end of June 2013 weighing 322lbs. I was in a size 24 or 26 jeans, depending upon brand. Since then, I have lost 50lbs! I am now 272lbs and am in a size 20 jeans. The program is so simple to follow too as Medifast has taken the work out of it for you. No counting calories or carbs, just eat and lose weight.

Medifast is the only program that has worked for me and I have tried many in the past. When I read others stories about their journeys, I get inspired that I will one day be one of those success stories. I am already a success as far as I am concerned. While I still need to lose more weight, I try to think of how far I have come and not how far I still need to go.

Are you on Medifast? Share your success with me! I would love hear!
