It has been a while since I have been on here. A lot must have changed (there wasn't a may thread yet and when I was on previously someone had it up at midnight)

I am taking this journey with MRC again and wanted to turn here for help AGAIN! I LOVE this program and can't thank it enough for changing my life. In November 2010 I started my journey with the program and lost 47 lbs. I was actually able to get pregnant on my own (two prior fertility babies) in November 2011. Now I am just trying to loose my baby weight and get back to where I was at the end of my program. This time, I am doing it alone. I have about an entire year of maintance left on my program. I was told as long as I was within my weight limit when I am done breastfeeding, they will continue my maintance. I am just working hard to get there. So excited to be back here and meeting some new weight loss pals!

Default 1st day of MRC

Hi - I am new here... and new to MRC. My sister is on the program and has lost over 70 lbs. I am very proud of her. I have some health issues and needed to try something to get on the right track with my weight. I found this website when I was doing some research and hope that by reading everyone's story that I will keep the motivation to keep going. Day one of the rest of my life... and 65 lbs to go!

Just out of curiosity - where do you go to get a weight loss tracker? I am not finding it.

I think directions are in the area where you adjust your profile.

congratulations doingitmyway! I have been doing preconditioning - and they had to change my class date, so I will have preconditioned 13 days before I start the program. :/ I have not weighed myself but am curious as to what has happened during that time!

Happy dancing today, finally made 30 lbs, in fact shot right past it to -31!!

This feels awesome because I was stuck just before here, went from losing 3 lbs. a week to a small gain, then a small loss, another small loss. Last few weeks have been -28, -27, -29, -29 1/2. So -31 feels amazing!

Reinvigorating my program for sure! Also I found out today about medi-quick menu, it will be so helpful to have a few days available where I can do 2 shakes and just worry about a dinner. No more than 7 times a month, but there are travel days where it will really help. Also tomorrow I am moving, so it will be awesome.

Interesting though, the other plan I lost weight on was Medifast, which is very similar, their shakes and bars for breakfast, lunch and snacks, just a lean and green dinner. Didn't feel like real life though, so I gained it all back very quickly when I stopped. So the limitation to 7 days a month makes a lot of sense. We do have to know how to eat real food.
