I have been working on my weight issues for the past few years and have lost a decent amount of weight on my own but it has taken me a really long time. So, I decided to enlist reinforcements. And I think that was definitely the right decision. Since starting the Medifast Go! program a little over 2 weeks ago, I have lost 11.2 pounds. Here’s how…

I’m Gonna Put On My Walking Shoes

So I asked in my last Medifast post about exercises that you guys might suggest that I use in order to help me lose weight. I got some great suggestions and, ultimately, decided to go with walking. I love that it’s outdoors and we have some really great trails and greenways in my town to walk on. I also like the solitude and meditative aspect of it. I try to walk first thing in the morning or I walk more towards the afternoon when I walk with my friend Michelle. And I track it all on my phone on an app. I started the app on 10/6 and have walked approximately 32 miles since then. I started out slow but I am now up to 4 miles a day. 😀

I take a bag with me to carry on my back and put a couple of waters in it, as well as my phone. After I walk, I typically sit in my car for a few minutes and answer emails and eat one of the Medifast Go! bars. I particularly like the Lemon Meringue and the Oatmeal Raisin.

Water Water Water

I drink a lot of water while I am walking but, admittedly, I have a really hard time drinking it the rest of the day. I mean, I do drink water – it’s my drink of choice – but I just don’t drink enough. So, I am trying to do much better about that. I have heard that drinking plenty of water also helps with weight loss. Whether that is true or not, it helps in overall health and I want to be healthy, not just lose weight. 🙂

My Favorite Medifast Meal, So Far

I really love the Medifast Tomato Basil Soup. I often have that for dinner with a salad. You do get to eat some things that are off the Medifast plan, while being on the plan. So you can add some variety that way, which lots of people really need.

Getting Closer To My Ultimate Goal

I have this weight in mind that I would really like to reach before I hit my 41st birthday in December. If I keep losing, at this current rate, I should be able to achieve that. And I think that would be the perfect birthday present to myself.

  1. I LOVE this post so much. More than what you did is how you did it. Diets DO NOT WORK! The only way to get healthy in the long term is to change your life and do things differently.

  2. You’ve been kicking so much butt! Keep it up! The only way to get where you want to go is by making changes, not getting sucked into diets. Great job!

  3. It’s awesome that you were able to make these positive changes! Those Medifast meals sound really helpful!

  4. I love it! And congrats for losing the weight, I’ve been going back to the gym this year as I want to be more fit. It’s so much better to eat healthy food as well, I’m glad you have your go-to meals and snacks.

  5. I am glad that medifast is helping you, I have seen many have great success with this. Glad that you are sharing your journey, it should inspire others too!

    It is crazy how simple lifestyle changes can make such a huge difference in your diet. Congrats on the weight loss!

  7. It’s not always easy to find the right weight loss program, so I think it’s awesome that you found one that fits your lifestyle! It’s really awesome when you start losing those extra pounds, that’s how I felt when I started to lose weight this year.

  8. I’ve never heard of this diet before! It’s not easy to adjust to a new lifestyle, but it’s totally worth it when you start seeing the results!

  9. The Medifast Tomato Basil Soup sure sounds good. I’m glad to see so many more food choices than years ago. Things that actually taste good too!

  10. Congrats on your weight loss and keep up the good work! My husband is finally ready to start his weight loss journey. I’ll be sure to grab him some Medifast bars for a special reward 🙂

  11. Wow! Congratulations! You are doing great in achieving your goals! Good luck! Would love to try those bars too!

  12. Congrat to you for losing the weight! I didnt think weight loss bars could help this much!
