Anyone else on this board in Fort Myers?

Hi Brishe,
You will find that the people who don't have as much to lose have smaller losses up front. I would think 5-7 pounds is realistic for you. Most of the people who have lost 10 pounds have much more weight to lose than you do. But every pound counts! Hang in there

So....WHY is my mouth sooo dry & just disgusting?? Is that normal...is it because of the lack of pills....is it because I'm in Ketosis....do i need more water intake?? Will this go away?

I was told that I would have dry mouth etc due to the appitite suppresent (Phendimetrazine). I definitely do! That is the only side effect I am having which is great! I am loving the program so far. Also, about the water..yes my clinic said 100-128 oz but try and get to 128 oz.

The dry mouth is from the Appetite Suppressant. It gets better over time, you can chew sugar free gum to help with it. Also you need to drink the full 128oz of water, this will also help.

Good luck with week 1 and let us know how the weigh goes!

It is hard to determine what you will lose, but you will lose on this plan if you follow it to the letter. You will probably not see the over 10 pound first losses that many of us have had because you just don't have that much to lose. The main thing to remember is that this weight took some time to come on so you must be patient in getting it off. This WOE is also teaching you how to be a much healthier adult. Good luck you will do fine!

Jessica is correct, go to the newbies page, almost everything you need is listed in there. But the first visit is 268.00 and then weekly visits are 70.00. You go weekly until you meet your goal weight. You will buy Fat Burner (25.00) and journal (6.00) monthly if you choose. The appetite suppressant and Vitamin are included in the 70.00/week charge. Once you are in maintence it is 35.00/month.

Susan,

Every clinic is different but here are the basics.

Initial visit $268.00 this includes bloodwork,ekg, vitamins,fat burners, mic injection, B-6 injection and program materials.

After that is usually run $70.00 per week.

Here is a link to the clinic site.

Day 2 - I feel pretty darn good actually !! :)

I feel really good today. Last night was tough - I'm a middle-of-night snacker - when I can't sleep, I go to kitchen and have some sort of high carb snack (Little Bites Muffin pack; Rice Krispie Treat, etc.), so when I woke-up last night (4 times btw to pee-pee because of all the water), I was absolutely dying because I soooooo wanted that snackie, BUT I resisted, and was much happier with myself this morning as a result.

I'm not feeling hunger pangs at all - no cravings really either, yet....

Question: I'm addicted to caffeine and my morning coffee is a must - have to have a cup in the a.m. to start my day -- they recommend Coffee Mate Free (icky), but that actually has 1 carb gram in it vs. Real Half-Half that has zero carbs. Why not substitute the calories and enjoy the real half-half? I'm dreading the fake stuff....it just isn't creamy enough. Truth be told I hate coffee and that's why I need the equal and half-half, but I'm terribly addicted to the caffeine, and am afraid to cut out the coffee altogether... Any suggestions or similar dilemas?

BTW - forgot to thank everyone for their comments on what to expect the first week. I know a 10 lb. loss is not realistic, but 5 lbs. sure would be a great motivator to keep chugging along...

I am also a coffee drinker and did not give it up. I did end up going with the Coffee Mate Sugar Free Creamer (French Vanilla). The fat free creamer had way too much of everything but the Sugar free is okay. I bought the international delights and the Coffee mate. I could not even choke down the Intl Delights but don't mind the Coffeemate. I think the half and half has too much fat & calories...not 100% sure though...just my guess. Best bet would be to check with the clinic.

Is your appetite suppressant an Rx prescription? Phendimetrazine-something? I have a real prescription and have to take it to a pharmacy to get it filled. Just wondering?

Going,

Are they charging you $70 and giving you a prescription? If so, it sounds like you are being overcharged as my $70 fee includes the medication. However, if they are charging you substantially less, it is better because the medication is much cheaper if you get it at a pharmacy. I know there have been several people on the forum that have gone that route.

Brishe, Kate and Miss Ria,

You have chosen a wonderful program that works! I have lost 60 pounds in 6 months and am only 3 pounds away from maintainance. Click on my avatar and you can see my before picture in my profile. I am so glad you found the newbie thread. If you have questions please feel free to ask. Also please join us on the main thread which is the June thread.

And no, I don't work for Medi, but I would by a franchise if I had the money. Their slogan "the one that works" is spot on.

Susie

Thanks for your response Susie! I go to the same clinic as Jerry.... so I will wait for him to weigh on the topic (oh hee hee...... "weigh in") I have only gone to the first visit which was $268 and one weigh in which was $70. I got the prescription and went to Walgreens the first time where it cost $13.99 for 30 pills and the second time I filled it at WalMart for $11.88

I am curious now what others have to do?

Amy (I remembered to put my name!!)

PS I weigh in tomorrow morning, is it rude to ask about this?

at my clinic we pay 70 a week, and they give us a "card" to give to the pharmacy. So we have to go to the pharmacy to fill it, but we do not pay anything extra for it. I did find out how much it costs since i was curious, it is only 10.99 for a 7 day supply IF you did have to pay.

Thanks Susie for the encouragement - your before/after is amazing - WOW....that's true success! I've never actually tried a true diet plan before - never had to - but after having 2 kids (who are now 9 and 10) I struggled with the last 10-15 lbs of weight, then I turned 35 and a couple more lbs crept on, and this past April, I turned 40 (with a few more lbs.), and I finally decided that's it - I need to get this under control now before it's something bigger than I can handle.

I know quite a few people here in SW FL that have used MWL - most of them with great success, so I have no doubt that I should do well as long as I learn to re-program my way of thinking about food -- which is something I really DO want to do -- I hate feeling so addicted, dependent and powerless against carbs. I'm sure they have been my road block to weightloss.

I will check-out the Main Thread as well - thanks...

I had my first weigh in this morning! I lost 10.8 pounds!!! I am so so excited! I really stuck to the plan big time. Not to discount my hard work, but I do have a lot of weight to lose (I know there is much talk about the first week loss....so please keep that in mind) But I worked very hard and really stuck to it! I have to say it was not nearly as hard as i thought it would be. The only other medical weight loss program I have tried was Optifast which I lost weight on but it was SO hard and then put the weight right back on when I was done...because I did not know how to eat right! This is a lot easier than that in my opinion..but still tough! Good luck to all you newbies! YOU can do it!!!

Excellent Kate. I don't have my first weigh in until Wednesday, but I feel like I'm doing very well. I was already in Ketosis as of last night (end of day 2), so I must be doing something right. I too and finding that it isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be -- I actually feel pretty good, and not really that hungry.

Kate, that's really awesome....great job!!

I had my 1st weigh-in (lost -5.2lbs and -2.4lbs of fat mass) and although I did not lose as much as some others, I was really excited for my weight loss. But wonder if that's too low of a 1st time weight loss? The clinic said it was good. But I was suprised that they didn't want to check my journal to see if I did anything wrong or to show me where to tweak it. They never asked whether I was in Ketosis, just gave me Week 2's food list and sent me on my way. Now, I was in Ketosis when I went to weigh-in BUT I had a tough 2 days...just because I was at places that made it difficult to stay on the plan. NOT because I was tempted but just because I had very limited things to choose from-which I think is what knocked me out of Ketosis. Do I have to go back to Week 1 until I'm back in (the papers they gave me said not to start week 2 unless you were in ketosis)??

I think the amount of weight you loose the first week has a lot to do with how much you need to loose overall. I only needed to loose 30ish and on my first week I lost 5.5. I would try doing only protein and see if you go into ketosis tomorrow, then add your veggies.
I'm not familiar wit your clinic but I would write down all your concerns and tell them you want to sit down with someone and go over your questions. Maybe call ahead of appointment and tell them you need more time then what they allot. These places want and need to make their clients happy to succeed. They have to meet certain goals too. Good luck, 5.2 lbs. gone is awesome.

~Miss Ria~ Would it be possible for you to add your stats into your profile?
Then we can follow along with you as you progress. And I echo those above who suggested that you bring any concerns to the clinic director.

And as for temptation, it will always be there, you need only to find positive ways to deal with it. As you make your way along this journey into a major new lifestyle change, come often to the forum for support and encouragement. That is what we are all here for. Sometimes, it may not be what you WANT to hear, but it may be what you NEED to hear to be successful. And, in the long run, that is what we all want for one another, to be successful!

Newbie here...

Been posting in the June page....

Was just wondering this...so let me re-post my question over here

I just got home from Fry's grocery store and I inhaled 3 oz of skinless chicken.

It went really fast....I am still hungry!!!!!

Should I drink some water...to feel full?

I got sugar free jello for a snack...not sure if I can have it.

When do I take the fat burn?


Sorry for all the newbie questions!!!!

It seems kind of late to be eating dinner, when was your last meal, if it was lunch time that could be the reason you are starving. I found the program was a great deal of trial and error. Do you have appetite suppressants? I would keep track of my hungry times which seems to be 3-6 before dinner and would then take my appetite suppressant around 1-2 and then if I was going out that evening take one around 5. But it all takes time to figure out. And I was told at the clinic to take the fat burner 11, 3, 7. Didn't they give you any information on when you should try their vit's?
And water, water, water, all the time. But you should have gotten a packet on the first day with all that info in it.
I don't believe you can have jello the first week.
But if you didn't get a packet with info I would call your clinic and tell them you need the written info to follow.
Good luck with the program, it really works.

Good luck with the program, it really works.
Nicely said Hudiman! All I can add is read your info packet again and again! If you didn't get one, call and ask for one. Like Hudiman said it is trail and error on what works best for you and your schedule. Her advice on when to take the pills is spot on. Try to figure out when you need the help from the appetite suppressants. The main thing is to drink the full gallon of water and to take all your supplements. Remember the Chicken broth will help with the hungries in-between meals. Also you need to really listen to your body - Are you really hungry - stomach hungry or hungry because you are bored or the like, eating to be eating. Determine those functions in your body and you can control yourself much better.

Good luck and check in often. We are all here for you, we have gone through this as well and remember it well!

HI Brishe, I only need to lose 25lbs... my going is slower than a lot of people. I also think that not being able to eat gluten anyway made a difference in how my body reacted to the first weeks...
keep up the good work!

Today is my first day. Took my pills ate my eggs. Informed my buddies that no alcohol for me this weekend. Man I hope they don't think it's funny to pressure me to drink. Going to a comedy club and bar afterwards with them. Club soda it is for me!

TXgirly- maybe don't tell them that you are not drinking? If it is just a bar, then you could order club soda with a splash of cranberry juice. Or just be the designated driver. If you are responsible for getting everyone home safe, you wont be able to drink.
