Medifast Day 21

That’s right, I’ve now been on the Medifast system for 3 weeks. So far I’ve lost 12 lbs total which is great. My clothes are getting big on me and my chin is disappearing. I am hooked. I have not cheated since the hockey game and I feel great. My average dailey caloric intake is 800 and I have been working out at least 300 calories, 6 days a week on the elliptical. I’m so happy with the results and it seems to be getting easier for me. I do however think my will power is going to be put to the test because I am going on vacation next week. It’s a family trip with the Italians so it will be a lot of tempting food but my husband and I have every intention of keeping up this diet so I’ll let you know how that goes. I must admit that while I felt bad about that one time I cheated and it did throw off my weight loss but afterwards I realized it wasn’t worth it. I think it was a good thing because it’s actually given me more will power not to cheat.

Fair warning this next part is a side effect that I did want to warn you ladies about and there’s a fair chance this is an over-share so I apologize. My menstrual cycle has gone crazy! I am on oral birth control and have been for many many many years. My period used to be predictable almost down to the hour and would be light for no more than 5 days. Since I’ve been on this diet my period has been on and off for the past two weeks. It’s something that is extremely annoying but the period symptoms of weight retention, cramps and cravings are not present so it’s not too bad. I’m hoping it will level out by my next cycle but it’s something I wasn’t prepared for so I thought I’d share it with you.

 

Hope everyone else is having luck and for those of you who aren’t I really do recommend this program. I absolutely love it and I really feel like this will be a life changer for me.

  1. I think it’s fairly common for your periods to be out of whack when you change your eating habits. It will level out eventually though! Congrats on the 12 pounds
