I'm back and trying to make the most of the 5 days until my weigh in Friday. I'm feeling much better but will pass on the gym tonight to rest some more. Today was a good day though I struggled with the water. I have that bad medicine taste
To avoid disappointment, I'm thinking of pushing out my mini goal another week since I got back on the wagon today. What do ya'll think?

I stuck with the Medi shake until I hit maintenace, then I switched to Designer Whey Vanilla Praline. Now that Im back in the Acute phase, Im finishing what I have in the Designer Whey and Pure Protein (lo carb) cans and will switch back to the the Medi stuff until Im back to my goal weight range.

Good luck!
You are right...those containers are HUGE...which is why I started with the Medi container to see if I would like it or not. I took the label off the Medi container to compare...and boy was I shocked! The stuff I saw at other stores had 3x the carb and sodium...not to mention the calories were higher too. I'd just thought I would put it out there since there are alot of Medi experts here! Thanks for the advice!

Mary...thanks for the advice...and everyone else too! I have some research to do!

After reading through your journeys on this forum, I am feeling relatively hopeful. My one concern is that I am on my second day and I am not remotely hungry. Everyone said only bouncing around 500 calories would make me feel miserable/ tired/ etc. ... and yet, I'm not hungry at all. I mean, I'm not complaining about feeling fine; However, it makes me feel like I am doing something wrong. Has anyone else felt full their first week and seen positive response on the scale at first weigh in? Maybe I am just being neurotic...
Best,
Elle
PS. Have an awesome Valentines Day!
Welcome to the journey, Elled! I've been on the program 4 weeks now...and I was shocked how full I felt the first week too! I still can't believe how full I feel on SO much less (and healthier) food than I ate before. Don't stress out too much about it...it's a GOOD thing! Can't wait to hear what your results are!

Valentine's Dinner

To be MEDI compliant, my valentine and I stayed in. I made a delicious LowCarb Valentine's Dinner (beef tenderloin, sauteed shrimp, fire cracker green beans). I did over indulge in the beef tenderloin (3oz), but I'm not going to beat myself up. I only exceeded my protein calories by 95 calories for the day. I think I may have eaten too many steamed green beans though, 1 cup steamed! I hope all of you were able to avoid the usual chocolates, and sweets that this day brings!
I have the MEDI chocolate protein powder. My problem is that I don't know what to mix it with. I tried to mix it with CHOBANI yogurt, but it was way to sour. Any suggestions?

Happy Valentine's Day! I spent the day taking a nice, long, WARM walk outside and then laying poolside all day....ah, yes - vacation!! To be away from the cold and snow and enjoy a walk/jog outside felt amazing....I really believe the winter weather at home effects my mood. Those of you who get to enjoy this FL weather, I envy you!!

Swirveegirl - firecracker green beans??? What's that??

While at the pool today, my 5 yr old (who literally swam all day - I had to fight to get her out just to eat lunch!) asked if swimming was good exercise because her "heart was beating in her chest". My inlaws were shocked that she would know something like that, then out to eat tonight we got some boiled edamame as an appetizer and my 2 yr old couldn't eat enough of it, again the inlaws were shocked. My husband then pointed out to them how eating healthy and daily exercise has become a part of all of our lives, I felt so proud of my girls today and how easily they embraced things (don't get me wrong, they then split a piece of chocolate cake for dessert....we are on vacation after all!) I just
really hope that my changing habits now will lead them to a lifetime without struggle!

I loved reading your post Keri, though very jealous of the warm weather! It's crazy windy and cold here today. A big reason I decided to take the weight off was to be a good role model to my eight-year-old daughter. It's amazing how quickly they pick up on what we do. Hopefuly by setting a healthier example than I have been, she will grow up with eating healthy and exercise as the norm. Don't get me wrong, she had some Valentines cookie cake last night, but today we are going rollerskating (INDOORS!)afterschool to burn off some energy on this freezing day!

We love the cauliflower pizza. I've made it several times. The first time I made it a little too thin (for my pizza pan.....which is BIG), then the next time too thick, but the third time was a charm! It's is crispy enough to pick up!
The shakes come already made. They have 110 calories, 2-4 carbs depending on the flavor and 18g of protein if I remember correctly.
The pizza was awesome! Brought one of the left over slices for lunch today to heat up in our toaster oven (don't think it would be so good in the microwave).

I'm still 100% committed to this WOE, and I'm NOT encouraging anyone to go off their plan (especially in the early stages) but I'm getting closer to my goal and am glad I have enough confidence that I can get back without skipping a beat!
Niiiiiiiiiiice!!!!

Even after gaining some of the weight back, I still felt empowered... my weight gain wasnt because I fell off the wagon and devoured McDonalds everyday, or over did it with pasta's or chocolate or bread or anything in particular... even on maintenance and training for a marathon I still portion controlled, ate lo carb, and was very happy with my new habits.

What did it in for me was that I was eating higher calories from when I was active and didnt adjust it for when I wasnt active (when I got injured).

I walked into the clinic an explained what happened and you know what... the nutrionist smiled and talked out a new plan for me and welcomed me back like an old friend. She didnt yell at me, she didnt harbor on the weight gain or made me feel guilty (which I didnt feel anyway). And, that was it... I didnt feel bad for gaining ... I just needed an adjustment (and you guys to help me be accountable!) and I'm confident that I can get back to my goal weight.

I had to quit going to the clinic due to finances after DH lost his job.....can't wait to return! That will be one of the FIRST things I do once he's employed again! I'm still losing, BUT at a MUCH slower rate....I need their support, and direction

I've tried the Zumba DVD's that DD bought for me a few times, and have to say I really wasn't crazy about them Guess I'm not much of a dance fittness type of person! At least NOT at home alone....I'm sure it's much more fun if you're in a group of people! I should have known, since I like the classes at the gym where the instructor is in front, and there isn't alot of turning this way, then that.....I'm dyslexic, and easily confused by changing direction! OH well, guess I'll list them on Ebay

I pulled out the Jillian Michaels DVD 30 Day Shred that I've had for a while, (but had only tried once) and I was able to do MOST of the level 1 (20 minute workout) without stopping, but let me tell you it REALLY kicked my butt! My legs feel like over cooked noodles! I HAD planned on doing my 5.5 mile walk after this, but there is no way! I'm just hoping I can MOVE tomorrow

I found out yesterday that my ex-sister-in-law passed away due to complications of life long morbid obesity! I'm SO saddened by the news. She was a wonderful person. I know her weight was always an issue with my brother, and their sons, but you cannot force someone else to change their eating habits. She insisted she was healthy in spite of being VERY overweight.....even while on oxygen, and being treated for congestive heart failure! It's just one more reminder for me as to WHY I'm doing what I'm doing!

Bikini Model?!

WOW! I just read a post from an old friend that had similar stats to mine. She started at 188 lbs and her goal weight was 128. She's 128 now, and during my hiatus, managed to compete in a bikini fitness contest and won third place!!! That is incredible!!!

She stuck to her plan (took about two years) and is reaping the rewards 10 fold! What an inspiration. Im awestruck and totally motivated too!

Mary,
Sorry to hear about your family's loss.

I have a feeling that Zumba would be much more fun to be in a class "in person" rather than doing it via DVD. BUT . . . I'm not ready to go to a class. Still haven't found a Zumba workout on Netflix, though. I do love the SELF magazine workouts with Ellen Barrett. But the important thing is to just keep moving!

Keotosis

Question: is it bad if your ketosis level is small? It used to show moderate but lately it's changed to small.

YES!! I love everyone there!! Super supportive and the nutritionist is the biggest sweetheart.

She works with you too... I told her about my athletic goals and we worked out a plan together. Best support I ever had!!

Deb, Thanks for the C25K advice. For those who are unfamiliar it is called Couch 2 5k, I did not join, but I was able to download a podcast with music so that I can do the workout. The person who has the podcasts is Robert Ulrey (SP??). Anyone want to "join" me on the treadmill?? I am also looking for some weight workouts...but one thing at a time.
Swirveegrl, I mix my shakes with ice, and sometimes with decaf esspresso powder, it does not come out very creamy, but it is sort of like having a fudgicle (yum). Cinammon would be good too. Maybe if you mix the ess. pwdr with the chobani and whey it would cut out the bitterness? I think there is something called peanut butter powder which might work too, you can reconstitute and it cuts out the fat and carbs, leaving the protein and fiber.

I am off to the gym!

I am doing the C25K program (on Deb's suggestion as well). I am now on week 6 :-)

I use the podcasts and either run on a treadmill (if they aren't all occupied in my apartment complex gym) or outside if it isn't dark, rainy and cold. the podcasts are great because I don't have to think about anything. I just run/walk when it tells me to :-) I don't know who the Robert Ulrey person is, but I-tunes had free downloads for Podrunner intervals podcasts from DJ Beatsmith.

Just randomness...I had my previous computer and a set schedule when I started MWL and was able to track everything and it gave me a sense of control. Through the past few months we have gone through my daughter's Cotillion, job changes, a new computer, etc...

So I lost track of where I was and started gaining a little weight back. I noticed when my pants started tightening up again. SO here I am, back with the program...I set up my weigh in for Friday and I set my new computer up with ******, a notepad on the desktop to see my weight every time I turn it on, and I put a link to LCF on my toolbar. All these little things gave me a sense of control and constant reminders of what I was doing. When I didn't have them it was out of sight out of mind. My class for this semester ends this week and I will have more time to really work through this.

Good luck to all of you...and thanks for your support...I will need it...I was only 1/2 way through my weight loss when I slipped, now I need to make it the rest of the way.

Shelley

Week 3 Weigh In

Just got back from my week 3 weigh in. Lost another 3.6lbs!

I told them about this website and how great it has been (including the recipes) and they had never heard about it! One girl said she's going to make a flier to hand out letting people know.

It was the one from the Medi boards.

I have ALWAYS been one of the least active people I knew..........NO MORE When I started Medi (MANY months ago....actually too long ago) I thought I was really doing great being able to walk 1.5 miles........today I walked 7.5 miles at the average pace of an 18 minute mile.....PLUS I walked up and over the causeway (.75 mile each) FOUR times! That is 2 more times over the causeway than I usually do! Bill says the causeway is at least a 15% incline, so I'm pretty thrilled!

I plan on doing the 30 day SHRED again today, all though I'm pretty stiff and sore from doing it yesterday! I have NO upper body strength, so things like push-ups are killer.......my goal is to be able to do REAL push-ups!

The OTHER great thing is that I've lost another pound! Only 2 more pounds to my NEXT mini goal!

Trish- Good job getting to the gym!BTW I will look for espresso powder...
Life is so difficult to really get into a routine when it comes to exercise. I had planned to go again yesterday, of course something came up and sabotaged my plans! I'm definitley going back tomorrow, after my weigh in I really know now that I am losing, because my pants are feeling so much looser! But it's still so scary to go "weigh", because numbers never lie
I've been having a hard time reincorporating my fruit and veggie into my diet. I'm going to try to do a better job, of including at least a serving of veggies into my lunch, and possibly a fruit for breakfast? I haven't had 2 servings of vegetable and 1 serving of fruit on any day so far!

My firecracker green beans are a MEDI compliant version of the green beans served at Famous Dave's restaraunt ( BBQ restaraunt here in Richmond).
I steam my green beans (1lb). I prefer the long, uncut beans; however, I doubt that it really matters. Brown 1 tsp of minced garlic in 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add a bit of diced onion to the garlic if you like, and red chile pepper flakes/diced fresh red chile). If you prefer less spicey, I think a few dashes of chile powder gives a little heat but not too hot. Add your green beans to the pan and coat well with the EVOO mixture, add low sodium salt and cracked black pepper to taste. If you like bacon, you can add crumbled turkey bacon to the beans as well. They are really yummy. My husband isn't crazy over green beans, but when I made these for valentines he cleaned his plate. Enjoy
