Well, friends... I can NOT believe that I've been on the Take Shape For Life (Medifast) program for 4 months now.... and to tell you the truth... it's been pretty darn easy for me! I'm almost shocked as to how I do not (for the most part) crave ANYTHING.... Sure if I'm around something that I used to eat all the time (tacos / pizza / baked potatoes) - my first "thought" may be..."I remember how GREAT that tastes"...but then I do a quick reality check to myself...and think of the weight I've lost - and how Great I feel - and those yummy thoughts dissipate. Instead I fill up my water bottle, find my Healthy food - and keep going...
4 months... My weight is at 150.5. I've lost 38.5 lbs in 4 months! WOW.... I can't stress enough how HEALTHY I feel! The energy I have is incredible. I also just realized this week how my Sleep has changed. When I first started on this program, I remember telling my health coach - I just can't stay asleep. I was getting to sleep okay, but STAYING asleep was another thing... I'd got to sleep around midnight - and be awake at 4am. NOW... I'm ready for bed about 10pm or so - and literally can sleep until 7am! It feels so good to have SLEEP. I'm not saying for sure that it was TSFL - but I really think that getting some weight off, and eating HEALTHY really was the key.
Ok...so now for my measurements:
