I'm down 29 pounds!!! 7 more pounds until I reach my healthy bmi, and then I'm thinking of phasing out of Medifast. I still have about 10 pounds to go after that but I feel like I can do that on my own. I'm really not losing weight quickly...I was, but now that i'm closer to goal I'm only losing 1-1.5 pounds/week, which I think is pretty typical for any diet... I'm making healthier choices, I know what I need to do to keep it off, I have a good workout routine that I can up once I'm off... Mostly, Medifast seriously messes with my digestive system, and I'm ready to be done with that. I can't get rid of it. I have the worst, foulest smelling gas, I get bad stomach cramps and bloating, and I'm getting diarrhea constantly...sorry, tmi, but none of that is typical for me. I love the program, I actually love the food, and the weightloss, but I can't take the digestive crap anymore. I'm taking my probiotics...i'm staying away from soups as much as I can, as that's a big trigger, but there really is nothing I've tried that works. So, 7 more pounds I think!
