It’s been 9 days on Medifast. It has been a hard journey for me (Marco). The food is OK — nothing to run out and get to be honest but it’s doable (avoid the Mac&Cheese at all cost). I lost 6.4 pounds in these last 9 days. I am excited about that.
My problem is that I don’t know if it’s giving me enough calories to basically function. I was doing fine while I was at work – just sitting there working at my desk. I would come home for my Lean and Green meal. No problem. My BS #’s seem steady and slowly lowering but overall I was OK. My problem started on the weekend!!!! I was not stationary. I was not immobile. I was up. I was out. I was doing things. I walk walking around. I felt like crude. I looked like a ghost and the people I was with were concerned. Yes I was eating all my food. I was drinking all my water. I WASN’T HUNGRY. I just felt like my limbs were jello and my mind was in a fog.
I just barely made it through the weekend. Monday came and I was OK again — I’ve contacted my Coach and she suggested more protein and veggies and another shake. (Not sure I want the other shake but I am ok with adding some protein and veggies at lunch. I tried this on Tuesday and Wednesday… I seem to have more energy but I only lost 0.4 pounds – that doesn’t really make me happy. I know a lost is a lost but I can still be unhappy at the speed.
Yesterday I had a dinner at PF Chang… I am not worrying about what I ate. I was smart – no rice just the meat with veggies. Lettuce Wraps were the bomb. I started Medifast on plan again today. My goal is to follow it 100% M-F and on the weekends incorporate a protein into breakfast or lunch. Hopefully by doing that I will have more energy to get me through.
Still 6.4 in 9 days….only 30 more to go!
