“I had no energy and no motivation to care for my body. I had simply given up. After losing 65 lbs with Medifast, I went from a person who never ran before to a 5K runner!”
Being overweight impacted every area of my life. I had low back pain and two back surgeries for ruptured disks. I was seeing a specialist for the onset of arthritis and joint problems, and also suffered from hypothyroidism.
Weight loss has always been a struggle for me because I always disconnected the issue with the triggers happening in my life. I tried many other plans and had short-term success, but my habits never changed. I chose Medifast knowing that my motivations, mindset, and outlook also had to change. Medifast made my progress much easier; the structured plan broke my addiction to food through simple choices.
One of my family members was encouraged to start the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan after she saw my 65 lbs weight loss. She’s lost over 20 lbs! My relationship with my husband is better; my emotional battle with food is no longer a barrier in our relationship. There is a freedom I am experiencing that is helping how I deal with people and life in general.
I enjoy the taste of food now. I have definite preferences instead of simply eating through numbness. After my success with the 5K, I’m planning to run a 10K and hopefully a half- marathon in the future!
*Results not typical. You should not expect to experience these results. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan is up to 2 to 5 lbs per week.
