Jerry, Saraane and KristenB: Thanks for the congrats! (Pat on my back I weighed on my home scales this AM and was 166.4, THAT's exciting! I'm hoping to make up for lost time by Feb 28th!! Jer- Dr Cobb really does a great job of researching and really is really encouraging. I try to see her at least once every other month personally. The other gals in the clinic are great and will help out but it's such a personal experience I don't want to be flashed in and out at appts. I've mentioned to them that I've "met" you on this site! Congratulations to all your successes!!

Hi All-Today is my birthday and as a treat to myself, I went to the back of my closet and pulled out all of my old clothes that I refused to donate to good will as they became too small. They all either fit well or are a bit loose. Happy birthday to me!
I have been doing the medi plan for three weeks and my energy and self confidence is growing by the day. With the exception of a few ounces of fluid, all my weightloss has been FAT.

What a great idea and gift to yourself! My Bday is in a little over a month. I think I am going to follow your lead and do the same. Thanks, SCgirl

March 23rd is my B-Day! Feels like it is today! Scales said 220 and 17.4% fat! WOOHOO! BMI is still a little high at 30.7 and water is about 15 (+/-5) too high. Can't wait to get this last drain out and start hitting the gym again!

*.*February Weight Loss Stats! Start posting them!*.*

It's the last week of the shortest month of the year, February. Time to start posting those weight loss stats for February. Who will be our "Biggest Loser" for February?

You may post in this thread or PM me if you wish. I will collect data until Saturday, March 6th. Results will be posted on Sunday, March 7th.

Will we beat January's total?

Another whoohoo here as well! I lost 5 pounds this week for a total of 21.8 since starting a little over 6 weeks ago. 4 pounds of fat, 1 pound of water. It also moves me into the 150's!!

It was a nice surprise to lose that much after only losing 1.3 pounds last week.

Have a great week!

Congrats on all of the losses! Nice to see everyone doing so well. It's so awesome to make it to the next set of 10's (if that makes any sense?)

I'm going for my week 8 weigh in on Friday...hoping to hit the 40lb mark along with being out of the 210's!! I'm at 210 right now, so I better at least lose a pound!

Hi, Everybody! Sorry so swamped with work the last few weeks! But I am still losing!

Today was my 3 months mark and I did a 12 pound lost for the month of February. (4 weeks). So lost 47.5 lbs so far!

I had a goal to try to lose 10-12 lbs for months 2 and 3. So far so good. Need to pick up on the exercise, and the water intake though.

Hey, Fellow Medis! I need some help... I want to post my before photo and after photo(really almost half-way to my goal photo) of me in the Before and After thread. But not sure how to upload the photos. I do not have my photos on an URL address.

Let me know how to do it. Thanks!

yess!!

Soo happy! After staying between 163.8 - 164.2 for what felt like forever after my surgery, I weighed in yesterday at 162.8 and today at 161.8. I think I really was just retaining water.

This brings my February weight loss to 7.7 lbs and I am THRILLED about it!!

Does anyone know if there is any other place I can buy the medi bars other than the clinic (since I stopped going to the clinic)? I know that some people don't love them, but I eat 3 a week and they work great for me. I have a really "on the go" lifestyle and when I don't have time for eggs this morning, this is breakfast. I ate my last bar this morning and I'm a little concerned. Or is there another brand of bars that I could substitute in their place? I've heard mixed reviews about the Atkins bars.

I like the South Beach Bars, at Walmart in the Pharmacy section, they have South Beach SNACK bars, they are smaller then the regular South Beach Bars that you find in the grocery stores. They have several flavors. 100 calories a bar and about the same carb g as the Medi. Good luck and great job so far.

Marymo: I was wondering if you could just walk in to your clinic and buy them without still "checking in" all the time. Call, ask 'em, you're still losing and you're still helping their clinic income and doing it a Medi way. I'd try it if I were you. I like the Cinnamon Pecan Delight ones and eat those every so often. Fill me up too. Perhaps you could order them from the MWL.com site (spell that out) or through their ph #.

Congratulations Laura, Mandi, Hudiman, and sunshines6!!

Wakefield clinic

Hi there. I'm at the Wakefield clinic and really like the staff there. I've never seen the MD (Dr. Kilp) and if I hadn't seen her signature on my lab reports when I asked for a copy, I'd wonder if she even oversaw it. That being said, I really like the staff and can recommend it.

Good luck.

I was thinking it was worthy of a pat on the back at least...nothing

I have friends who go to the Wakefield clinic. They rant and rave about it. Always have stories of positive reinforcement, high fives, etc... I am a little jealous actually. If things don't change in Chelmsford, I may look into changing to Wakefield.

What clinic do you go to?

I had my week 7 weigh in today. I was really hoping to have made it to 20 pounds lost but I came up a little bit short. 18.6. This is still great. I did make it to 170 and I am thrilled about that.
Oddly, this week I lost 3lbs of fat but gained 2lbs of water. It not TOM so I trying to figure out what could have caused that.
Oh, well, I am celebrating the successes. I am thrilled that I have lost 18.6, thrilled that I bought a size 10 bridesmaid's dress last week, thrilled, sorta, that I had to put my wedding rings in my jewerly box because they were falling off, and thrilled that I am smaller than my friends. :blush: Evil, I know.

Celebrate the successes. Have a great night!

Down another 1.6 lbs this week! My water was up 2.2, so I actually lost 3.8 lbs of fat, but my water was up so overall loss is only 1.6 lbs.

I think this is because I always go to the clinic in the morning but today I went in the evening. I've heard that you tend to retain water as the day goes on, so I think this may have been the problem. Has anyone else experienced this?

I'm hoping that this will change next week, but I'm going to be drinking a lot of water between now and then to help it out!
