    REPOST: (didn't originally know where to post) Hello, well I have to say I am scared, scared to death. I just ordered my food yesterday so I am still awaiting it's arrival. I want so badly to lose this weight, and I pray I can do it or atleast shed a few prior to my wedding in March. I have tried EVERYTHING.

    ... EXCEPT Medifast. I hope to god it works, seeing other peoples success stories and pictures really does give me hope, so thank you!.

    You've made a great choice!.

    This plan absolutely works. Stick around these boards, ask questions, learn about the plan. You will lose an amazing amount of weight before the wedding if you do..

    Number one thing: Don't cheat! Not ever. Not a nibble. Nothing. Stay "On Plan" (you'll see people talking about being "OP" here...that's what we mean)..

    In years past, I had convinced myself that a "little cheat" here and there wouldn't hurt. In fact, I convinced myself that a little cheat here and there was actually a good thing...keeps the body off balance and all..

    Nonsense. Doesn't work. All cheats do is delay success..

    As MntMom said, the first week is the toughest. Your body will be going through some adjustments. Side effects (particularly headaches) are common. Fight through it. Once you are "in the groove", this plan becomes second nature. Its gets easy. Next thing you know it will be February and you will be rocking some great losses and totally looking forward to the wedding!.

    Welcome to the board!!.

    Welcome!! I've been battling weight since the 4th grade, and this program has been my "magic pill". You definitely have to be committed to the program and work it exactly as written, but it works! For me, the first three days were pretty rotten, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because after day 3, I felt great. It's such a joy not to shake from low blood sugar anymore, like I was doing before MF..

    On a side note, cooking has always been one of my favorite activities, and I have really loved learning how to cook in a whole new way as a result of this program. I continue to use recipes I used during 5&1, and plan to do so going forward..

    Welcome!! Many, and I mean MANY of us had tried EVERYTHING before Medifast. Why do I love it?.

    1. I see results.

    2. I count very little.

    3. I have great energy (after week 1, but that's usually a very nice loss so it pushes you forward).

    4. I GIANT HEART this community!.

    Welcome! Medifast has given me something that I haven't had in a long time....HOPE. I've lost weight on other plans before, but there was nothing about the other plans that changed the way I thought about food. This plan has done that..

    Before Medifast, I had almost given up. I thought I must be destined to be fat. No more - now I know that I am completely in control of my weight and health...and I feel great! I can't even imagine how wonderful I'm going to feel when I get to my goal weight - it's been so long since I've been there....

    You've made the right choice. Stick with the plan, and it will work..

    You will do great! Good advice from others above..

    If you haven't already, read the post from Kristin70 about hitting her goal and see what she has accomplished. It's incredibly inspiring, and her words of advice are infinitely wise..

    Hey! Joining in with the rest to say that Medifast really does work..

    ((Like you, I tried MANY other things. The only one I had moderate success with was South Beach. Everything else nada.)).

    Remember after the first few days it gets really easy! So just stay on the boards and drink a ton of water, esp that first week!.

    Welcome; and don't be scared. You've taken the first steps in a journey that you won't regret. For me, it's one of the easiest plans to follow. You're in good company here, the support is wonderful and you will receive help whenever you need it. Just remember to always stay OP, drink all the water and ask questions when you need to..
