Tonight is salmon with some spinach.
I have a question. How often do you all weigh yourselves? I tend to get obsessed with the scale, often weighing myself in the middle of the night if I get up for any reason. Then again when I get up in the morning.
Do you weigh yourself everyday, or once a week?
I am a math person. I like to see what stuff does to my body so I can accurately measure my progress. So I weigh twice a day. And I log those numbers on a spreadsheet. Here's the thing though, I DON'T care if the number goes up. Just as long as the overall tread is down. My "official" weigh in is always on Monday.

Rule of thumb, if you weigh daily, DO NOT DWELL ON THE NUMBER! It WILL go up, stay the same, drop 2 pounds, or only .1 pound. In fact, weekly weigh ins can have the same effect. Remember that weight loss is NOT linear, our bodies adjust and part of that adjustment makes our weight go wonky sometimes.

A better method to see how you are doing is to take up the tape measure. How do your clothes fit? How do you feel?

The scale measures weight loss...which can be fat loss, muscle loss, water weight loss, bone loss, ect.

The tape measure on the other hand mainly measures fat loss.

And isn't fat loss the real goal?

OH! And IF you exercise, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN EXTRA SHAKE! Trust me on this You'll stall out otherwise. EAS Carb AdvantEDGE is a good one (I prefer the vanilla personally)

Thanks for your reply. I am going to start working out again so I will definitely add a shake. I am measuring myself today. I know my weight is always more at night so I don't worry when I see a gain there because I know it will usually be lower the next morning. My official weigh in day will be Sunday. Thanks for your thread giving your opinions on the different meals, bars, and shakes for Wonderslim. It was a great help when I placed my order.

Day 4, things are going pretty good! My only slip up was having a few too many rice cakes yesterday, but it's better than a bag of chips! My sister and I are having a contest to see how has the biggest percentage of weight loss by June 1st. The loser has to give the winner $100 towards a new outfit.

weigh in this morning, lost almost 8lbs! I have been staying on plan and should be able to until Easter when I plan in going off a bit, but just at dinner. No appetizers or anything before. I am so Happy!
Hope everyone has a great week.

ok, not too keen on the tomato soup, but I add veggies to it so it's not so bad. Not sure if I will order it again.

Hi! Just ordered some Wonderslim but am very confused by their "plan". I have been doing Medifast on and off since last fall and have lost about 25 pounds on it but I would like to try Wonderslim to help the budget. I still have a bunch of MF stuff that I need to use so I thought I would start with subbing a few WS items. My favorite MF items are the cereal, oatmeal and bars and I am almost out of those so I ordered the WS bar variety pack, both types of cereal and also their general variety box with a little of everything to try.

I love how easy it is with MF-- I just pick any one of their items (except the clearly defined snacks) for my 5 meals. I can have Mashed potatoes for breakfast and pudding for the next 4 meals if I want. I am confused by the WS plan which seems to define the items differently and it seems like they are not interchangeable. I prefer to keep shakes/drinks to a minimum because they are harder to prepare and I like to eat actual food that I have to chew. I am looking at their "core" plan but it looks like the cereal and oatmeal are not even used on that? And the "premium" plan is very confusing because it adds 2 more WS meals but only eliminates one starch and 2 veggies which don't seem like the nutritional values really add up.

Can anyone help make this less confusing?

LOL - main reason I parted with it. I still use the shakes and I still use the bars, but I mainly do my own things, counting calories and using these products for last minute grabs or after workout routines. WS just got TOO big! When I first started, there was ONE plan. Now...I think there is like 15? It is crazy! So...if you are following MF currently, you can EASILY sub WS products in place (originally it follows MF to a "T"). A lot of folks use these products as subs for IP. so, make it your own. As long as you stick with it and keep your calories within your TDEE range, it will work

Good luck!

Thanks! I will just have to figure out what to have when. I would like to still keep things under 1000 cal a day and as close to low carb/high protein as I can. I lost about 50lbs on South Beach and just needed something more structured for the last 50. MF has worked for about 25 of those but with a child going to college in the fall I need to cut the $$$.
