Like many of you, I was suffering from being overweight for many years. I had tried literally everything in the planet - diet pills, fad diets, exercise routines, fitness programs, detoxifications.. everything.
It wasn't until I learned about Medifast that I was finally able to conquer my weight issue. I wrote my experience below so that others in my same situation could benefit.
At the age of 30, I was pretty satisfied with my life.. I had a lovely husband, and 2 lovely children. I had a wonderful career and caring friends. I lived in Florida, and enjoyed the weather every single day. However, there was something lacking in my life: to have a healthy body, and self-esteem.
My weight had been an issue every since I got married, and had 1 child. I was skinny as a kid, was kinda chubby in high school, and then skinny when I got married. So, I wasn't the type that was overweight since I was born..
Like everyone, I treated myself like crap whenever I felt overweight. I felt bad about myself, and felt like an alien. I thought I didn't deserve to live and be a human being.
When I had my first child, my weight just started increasing day after day. I blamed myself for not exercising after giving birth. Instead I became very lazy, and just sat on the couch, watching TV every single day after work. Taking care of my baby was the first thing on my mind, and when I had any free time, I didn't spend it exercising. Instead I just wanted to rest, and put my legs up the table.
I gained over 40 - 50 over that stretch of time, and it was clear that my health was deteriorating as well. My husband encouraged me to visit a doctor, and I did. Well, after several doctor visits, I learned that I had hypothyroidism. This was partly why I was gaining so much weight too.
During a stretch of many months, I tried countless diets, and countless pills. Trimspa, Hydroxycut Hardcore, Hoodia, you name it. None of them worked. Thankfully, in the summer of 2005, my friend told me about Medifast shakes and their program. I read about Medifast somewhere, and remembered that it had tons of success stories.
So I decided to buy Medifast that summer, and give it a shot. I weighed 175 lbs that time, and my goal was to cut it down to at least 130 lbs. I wanted to feel slim, and healthy again.
After 5 months on the program, I had surpassed my goal of 130 lbs. I had lots over 50 lbs, and weighed 118 lbs! But more importantly, I felt so much better about myself. My self-esteem increased to an all-time high, and I felt 100% healthier.
For those of you thinking of trying Medifast, my message to you would be to keep at it! Don't even think of cheating whatsoever. Keep on the program, and trust me, at the end your body will thank you for it. There is a HUGE payback at the end.
