Yes - I gained it all back (55 pounds) within 6 months, but kept off the weight I lost as a vegetarian (35 pounds).

And the shakes/doctor's visits (not medifast, but similar) cost me $4k - and that's with insurance. I did learn at the doctor's office that to maintain, I have to only intake 1300 cals/day...a freaking lowcal diet for the rest of my life, basically. My head was not in the right place, horrible job at the time, uncertainty, and I soothed myself with food. Stupidity.

I'm starting again, but doing as JayEll is doing, using real foods that match the medifast profile. And I'm not going down to 140 pounds....I was happy at 190, maybe I'll go down to 175-180. If I went down to 140 pounds, to stay that slim, I'd only get 1000 cals/day to maintain. No thanks.
