Hi all, I am going to orientation in a few days (finally! has been long awaited!)

Anyone else who is going through the program know is you are started on shakes the same night as orientation or do you have to wait for a follow up appointment?

Doing well so far - I haven't started yet because I have to go through all of the appointments but I should be in the program as of the first week of April - The earliest they could schedule my evaluations were on March 31st and April 4th so now I am just counting the days!

Hello there,
So glad I found you here. I just started the program yesterday. I am completing my 2nd day. I have to say, I am really hungry but I just keep trying to visualize what I would look like 30-40 pounds lighter. The past few days I have been reading through various sites to hear of other people's successes. So far it help makes it a little easier. I wish you both the best of luck. I hope that we can share this journey to reach our goals.:) Keep posting, helps keep me motivated.

Thank you! I go for my physical tomorrow (the last appointment I need before starting).
Hopefully I can get into the meeting tomorrow if there is enough time after my appointment. I am dying to start the program and the next full fast meeting I can attend around my work schedule is not until Wed evenings...I don't want to wait another week! lol

So how is your optifast diet going? You should be finished with your first month by now. What is your weight loss? I am finished with 2 weeks and down 10 LBs. Added exercise this week and we'll see what happens at the next weigh in.

nibog
04-23-2014, 08:34 AM
It is going well! Today will be my third weigh in. At my second weigh in last week I was down exactly 10.00lbs. It is a great starting point and definitely a motivation. I haven't cheated nor have I wanted to cheat. I have a goal and no amount of food will taste as good as losing weight is feeling.

I've been considering this program, but I heard it's expensive....it sounds like it works, can I ask how much you've invested so far and what you're expected to do to stay on the program?

Thank you!!

nibog

Hi, looking at the program, it does seem expensive. When I added up the amount I spend at Dunkin Donuts in the mornings, going out/ordering in for lunch, dining out at restaurants some nights or ordering Pizza with the hubby....wine/alcohol etc...and the fact that none of that would be happening on the Optifast program, it is really not a lot out of pocket in comparison.

In my area it is a $295 program fee (one time fee). $100 for the psych eval (another one time fee) (neither covered by insurance). There is also a monthly $125 fee for the program (most are 4/5 month programs (20-22 weeks usually) and then you can continue on afterwards with out the monthly fee - in my area at least!)

Two main programs - 1) Full fast - all shakes, no food. Eventually (after 12+ weeks usually) you are weaned onto the Modified program 2) Modified - some shakes, 1 "lean and green" meal. Eventually you are weaned onto more and more food.

Both programs have weekly meetings that you have to attend (also where you buy your shakes/bars/soups). You have access to an exercise coach, nutritionist etc.

I am doing full fast, which for my weight means 5 shakes a day - an 800 calorie diet total. Eventually I can have an Optifast Soup a day but I am not there yet. I can't have the bars until I am weaned onto Modified.
The shakes are $3.75 each premade/drink box ones, around $3 for the powdered that you shake with fluid. I have to meet weekly with the doctor (a full fast requirement, I think it is every few weeks for modified). My weekly co-pay is $30, the actual doctors visit is covered by my insurance.

If I average the costs of the shakes, co-pay and monthly fee, I am spending about $190 a week.

Before the program I was spending $35 a week at Dunkin Donuts ALONE. Lunch usually averaged about $10-12 a week....never mind dinner/drinks/snacks/sharing a bottle of wine at dinner or ordering a $10 martini....

When you compare what you ARE NOT paying for, paying for the program really doesn't seem as extreme.


I hope this was helpful!!!

Third weigh in last night, another 3.3LBs lost - - total of 13.3LBs in 19 days!

So happy. I was able to start on soups also. For the first week I can substitute one shake with one soup every other day. Next week I can do one soup to replace a shake once a day.

Alarkin - just to help each soup is about $3.20

Thanks. I had the chocolate flavor this morning (of the Optifast 70 variety). It... was not good. I put in 3 packets of Splenda and still had issues getting it down. Might try blending it with ice and some diet root beer or something later today.

Uh oh, sorry to hear you don't like the taste of the chocolate. :p Poking around the 'net, I have seen that people seem to like vanilla the best. I guess the vanilla is easier to flavor.

Yeah, that's what I discovered at "lunch" just now (I use quotation marks since I'm drinking something and not actually eating, haha). I mixed the vanilla with some diet orange soda. It was a lot easier to drink than the chocolate this morning. It still tastes odd - almost a fish oil aftertaste IMO - but considering it's an 80 calorie shake, that's sort of to be expected. :) Heh.

Sorry for the double post, but wanted to give a bit of an update.

Played around with the vanilla Optifast 70 today. Tried it with diet orange soda (not bad), fruit punch Crystal Light (pretty good), iced coffee (coffee + vanilla Optifast 70 + bit of Splenda, blended thoroughly in blender). The iced coffee rendition is my favorite so far I think.

Anyway, It's 10PM, and I'm sitting here watching TV. I'm pretty sure this time of day will be the hardest part. I even caught myself thinking, "well, I'm hungry now, but at least tomorrow I can have actual fo-- wait, no, I can't."

I'm really looking forward to the first couple days being over, because I've heard those are the worst while your body adjusts to ketosis.

To be continued...!

Have fun at your orientation tomorrow. :D When is your start date? Do you have one yet? Are you planning on doing Optifast 70 too?

I had better luck today with the chocolate Optifast 70, thank god! I mixed it with coffee, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a little Splenda. The cinnamon TOTALLY cut out the nasty aftertaste of the chocolate. It was so good I felt like I was cheating while drinking it.

Other news: I was pretty irritable today. I will attribute that to my body not being in ketosis yet/me being hungry at random times in the day. I can't wait until I'm in ketosis so that I don't feel hungry. D:

TMI news: I use the birth control Nexplanon (implant in arm) and have been for about four years now. While on Nexplanon, I don't get a period, which is awesome. When I tried low-carb/keto eating earlier this year, I would have random breakthrough bleeding, which was annoying. Well, today that started happening again. I was curious why this only seems to happen when I'm eating low carb, so I poked around on the internet for a bit. Apparently the reason is that because estrogen is stored in fat, when you lose fat rapidly it gets released into your system, flooding your body with excess hormones, which can sometimes cause breakthrough bleeding or irregular periods. Interesting.

At the meeting today I will find out the dates for my physical and psych evaluation and also my fasting start date. I'm just celebrating one step closer with today's orientation. :) I'll be doing full fast for 12 weeks with Optifast 800. :)

About your TMI... I guess the bright side is that you are indeed burning fat? :shrug:

If you are doing Optifast 800 you might not have as many "yuck" issues with the flavor of the shakes. When I met with my dietician last week she made me a complimentary chocolate shake with the 800 formula and it was pretty decent. All she added was water. :)

Floral shorts - - I was on Implanon (a type of birth control stick in the arm) for 5 years...Started it at 19, had it replaced at 22 as it has a 3 year life cycle, removed it at 24 (about 2 weeks before turning 25) when we decided to start trying for a family.

I gained a LOT of weight with the second insertion of Implanon, I didn't have my period more than a half dozen times during those 5 years. Now I have an unbelieveably messed up cycle (have gone up to 18 weeks in between periods! - They hope I will regulate after losing weight - they think the irregular periods and my ocular migraines are both a result of high estrogen levels which is a result of high fat percentage in the body (like you pointed out).

Life is so much fun, isn't it?

Omg, crazy! Implanon doesn't have the weight gain effect on me for whatever reason, but I made up for that by being depressed and eating my life away haha. I really like it though, other than the random bleeding that I'm getting now... blah.

And... I'VE OFFICIALLY LOST 11.8 POUNDS! When I went to the clinic last week, I weighed in at 245.8. I'm not going to be able to go to my clinic to get officially weighed until next Tuesday, 3/13, so I figured "what the heck" and weighed myself at home this morning. It said 234! I was in a happy shock. And this is only my fourth full day on Optifast 70. Wow is all I can say. Really happy over here. :)

Since I don't have enough posts yet to get a weight countdown in my signature, here's where I stand right now:

SW: 245.8
CW: 234
GW 1: 175
UGW: 160

Today is day five of Optifast 70 for me. Yesterday went much better than the first three days. I have some Ketostix which test your urine to see if you're in ketosis - as of yesterday and today, I am definitely in ketosis. I am also getting a lot less hungry. I try to drink a shake every three hours.

My only problem so far is cravings! I know I won't cheat, but goodness, I am sure craving some pizza. I unfollowed a few food blogs on Tumblr because all of their posts were making me hungry, haha!

I know I have the will power to not cheat but the mental cravings are still there. I just keep reminding myself that cheating is not worth it. Which would I rather have... a slice of grease laden pizza, or a sexy figure? I think I'll go with the latter. ;)

It is a hard wait!! I signed up for orientation in Jan, was given a call back and finally received a call in Feb with an orientation date for March...Started the program on April 4th. I completely sympathize - waiting from Jan to April was a nightmare!

Between now and then, I would do a few things to start you off in the right direction.

If you don't already, start taking a sugar-free fiber powder.
Not sure how much you drink, but ZERO alcohol is allowed in the program, start cutting back now.
Start drinking water like it's going out of style - minimum of a gallon a day, max 2 gallons.
Start taking small walks. Even 1 lap around your neighborhood. You can't do a lot of exercise on Full Fast to begin with, walking definitely helps.
Start a food journal, write down what you are eating, when you are eating etc. I keep a food journal for all my shakes and water....Every piece of sugar free gum is also notated!
Stop the "I hate my body" thinking - you are in the right direction of changing that. Start positives now.
Start saving up $$ - - bras are expensive and a pain in the butt - bust is one of the first areas you lose weight and you will need to go through a variety of sizes before you get to your goal.

Hope this helps - hang in there!!! July will be here before you know it!! (It better be! That's when I think I am going to switch to Modified)

Today is my seventh full day of Optifast 70. Tomorrow will be my week anniversary, and my first weigh in at my clinic.

I weighed myself this morning out of curiosity. 231.8 pounds. I am down 14 pounds in less than a week. I don't even know what to say, so I will just sit here and smile. :) When I go to the clinic tomorrow I don't expect the loss to be as much as it is at home, since I'll have clothes on and it will be in the evening when I weigh in, but this is exciting.

I know it's mostly water weight and that it won't come off this easily in the coming weeks... but wow. I can taste the 220s again. I'm so excited.

In other news, I pretty much have dreams every night about eating food. Last night I ate pizza in my dream! It sounds weird, but it sort of curbs my craving for eating food in real life, haha. I remember the pizza tasted really good in my dream, but the 14 pound drop in real life tastes a lot better.

Congratulations to everyone on the weight loss. I was supposed to start but, I was not mentally prepared, because my period had started and I simply was not ready. I am ready now, I have my shakes in the fridge, I brought a new journal, to record my foods and feelings, and I am as ready as I can possible be to changing my life for the better.

Today is day 10 of Optifast 70. Yesterday I had my first weigh in at my clinic, and I've officially lost 13 pounds (245.8 to 232.8). I figured the weigh in at the clinic wouldn't be the same as at home, since I weighed in there in the evening, had consumed shakes all day, and had clothes on of course.

I've also begun to drink one gallon of water per day, since I didn't put much effort into water consumption during my first week.

I woke up this morning and weighed myself, and weighed in at 228.4! Hello 220s! :) This brings my total weight loss so far to 17.4 pounds.

My food cravings aren't too bad, but sometimes I do really wish I could have some ravioli or some cereal. I usually try to busy myself with something else when I have these cravings; looking at cute dresses to buy when I'm skinny usually works. ;)

On Monday I am going back to work after being off for a year on leave. I am really excited to go back, surprisingly, and I think work will help distract me from wanting food at different points during the day. My only concern is coworkers noticing I never eat food. My mom told me that if they question it, to just tell them that I am on Optifast, but I just don't think it's anyone's business at work what I'm putting in my mouth. Plus, if someone has never heard of Optifast before, the idea of it sounds pretty insane. I'm hoping no one will notice.

I will be starting Optifast soon. I have the initial doctor's appointment in two weeks. I need to lose as much weight as possible in order to have hip replacement surgery...hopefully this fall. Two of my doctors recommended WLS. I am not really on board with that. So hopefully I will start this instead of WLS.

To prepare, I've stopped the food email lists and trying to figure out what to do with my Pinterest account with all the recipes, etc. I have tried shakes and bars from GMC's Total Lean program which is similar to Optifast. I've limited myself to one or two of these products a day. I like the breakfast squares but not sure having an 8 oz. shake every three hours is going to work for me. Need to prepare myself mentally for that!

Glad to read about everyone's progress!

I had my doctor evaluation on Thursday. This is through the University of Michigan. I'm somewhat unhappy with their program because there is not a support group. The doctor is going to put me on meds to prevent gallstones from forming. I weighed in around 324 (don't have the exact number in front of me). My initial goal is around 235. Need to get as close to 35 BMI in the next several months in order to have my hip replacement surgery. After I recover from the surgery then I will try to get down to 175 or so. One interesting thing about this program is at some point they allow you to eat low carb veggies. Unfortunately I can't start until the end of June. I need to see the dietician first and the soonest available appointment was 4 weeks out. So I've decided in the meantime to stick to a 1200 calorie/day plan, eating one 400 calorie meal with my husband. The rest of the time I will eat GNC shakes and bars. That way I will get used to eating every three hours and all I'll have to do is substitute the Optifast products and omit the 400 calorie meal.

I have been walking and up'd the water intake! My feet are killing me though! Ughhh But like everything else I do, I over did it! I walked 1.5 miles away from my house~ so that means walking that back! 3 miles may not be a lot for some but I should have been able to place a flag of victory somewhere! hahahaha I'll post after the 1st meeting. I'm feeling I'm excited & scared!

Congrats!!! It is definitely a program that I have found to "WORK!"

Woohoo for that 3 mile walk - def not a small thing! Don't go crazy when starting the program though, they (at least locally) really restrict exercise in the beginning due to the low calorie intake :)

The next 12 days will fly by!
