How did I lose the weight?
I lost all my weight using Medifast. I had seen a co-worker lose over 50 lbs on a meal replacement plan recommended by his doctor. It wasn't Medifast, but it made me realize that it was possible to be successful on a meal replacement plan if you committed to it 100%. And when I started to research meal replacement plans, Medifast came up as a clear winner - both in results and in affordability compared to freshly prepared meal replacement plans.

I had seen a Medifast center in my neighborhood and the week after a particularly depressing and indulgent Thanksgiving, I walked in out of the blue to check it out. I heard their pitch, I saw their setup, and I gawked at the price. But I knew that if I was going to be 100% successful, I needed to give up control of my eating, I needed to be monitored, I needed to have my hand held (and slapped on occasion). I had to admit and embrace that I couldn't do this on my own. I had tried and failed too many times, each time more unhealthy and desperate than the time before.

The rest is history. I got my food, I got on plan, I stayed on plan (not 100%, but almost). 32 weeks later, I reached my goal of 55 lbs lost!

Before and After Stats
Weight: 155.0 lbs to 98.2 lbs
BMI: 31.8 to 20.2
Waist Measurement: 35 inches to 26 inches
Hips Measurement: 40 inches to 31 inches
Total Inches Lost: 80.25 inches
Body Fat: Over 50% to 25%
Cholesterol: 228 to 157


I hope to give back some of the inspiration I've fed off of here for so long! Thanks for letting me share my story!
Wow!! YOU LOOK AMAZING! Like a completely different person! Congratulations!!

Wow, you look amazing. You were pretty before, but wow, you look like a completely different person! Incredible results, very motivating. Thank you for sharing.

The most recent photo is incredible, wonderful quality, magazine worthy. You should send those in to Medifast- I can totally see you on a commercial or ad!

Chickapea, u look fantabulous!!! I'm your twin, except I'm just starting out. (started Dec 13th) I'm also 4'10.5", 155 lbs, and doing Medifast too! (to make it more twinsy, I'm also Asian! haha) Your pictures totally inspired me! My goal weight is 100 lbs, which I had doubts about reaching, but now that I've seen your story, I CAN TOTALLY DO THIS!!! Thanks for the motivation. Congratulations on reaching your goal. How is transition going?
