I’ve been on the Medifast program for 2 weeks now, and it is still going great! This week, the pounds didn’t fall off as easily as I hoped, since I weighed in a 162, but I can feel a difference in the way my clothes fit and how I feel. (The exact opposite of last week!)
Last night for church, I was able to get into a size small skirt and sweater set – that I took out of my daughter’s closet. It’s such a great feeling to see the fruits of my labor. It makes it all feel worth it!
Not only that, but the very best part was having my (almost) 13 year old son hug me and say, “You look pretty, Mom.” He didn’t say it because he wanted something or had ulterior motives, he just hugged me and said it. It about sent me to the floor! What a great thing to hear!
I still have my favorite foods: the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and the vanilla shakes – to name a few. 🙂 And I’m starting to do really well with making Lean & Green meals that my kids all love and are excited to try. (Note: I made one meal the other night, and Lucy loved it so much, she went back for seconds – and she’s my pickiest kid!!)
Today, I want to share with you some tools Medifast offers to help you on your journey. Not only does the meal plan come with a food journal – which is great for keeping you on track with your eating, but you can also download the MyWellness App. This app has become my best friend over the past 2 weeks. Not only can I log my calorie intake, but I can also log my water intake, calories burned, weight, measurements, and even sleep duration. I can pair it with my fitbit and it helps keep me on track with everything!
You can also create an account on the Medifast website and do all the same things. It’s all about what’s more convenient for you. (I prefer to have the one-touch access the app gives me on my phone. Then, it’s always with me, and I can quickly and easily input data into it. It takes just a few seconds to put in the data, and I immediately have it recorded so I can look back on how far I’ve come!
8 pounds in 2 weeks is great. Yes, the weight is much easier to put on than it is to take off, but it’s coming off. And by the end of these 30 days, I have a feeling there’s going to be more than just a change in my diet, I’m looking forward to a total lifestyle change.
I can do this!!
