I started in February 2010 and I lost a little over 70 pounds by August. I joined Medi in April, so I lost 40 from Feb. to April. Seems like the first 40 came off fast and easy.

One of my weak spots was almonds and I ate them from the second week on. Too many, really. You're right the calories are just so high. I had to ban them from my diet AND the house. But your serving was perfect and they really are GOOD for you.

I really think you could up your calories a couple days a week, making sure you always have your 500 calories of protein. ALWAYS. One of the biggest things MY body responded to was switching it up. Some days 600, some days 900. It never knew what it was going to get and responded kindly. I do worry starvation mode and think the higher calories kept my body from that. I know it's a little different for everyone and sometimes it's hard to find what works BEST for you. I do believe you have to follow the plan, but there's flexibility.

One last thing that I did was increase my exercise. I rode an exercise bike a lot of days. I started with three times a week for 30 minutes. I ended up with EVERY SINGLE day for 45 minutes. In maintenance, I was most days of the week for 30 minutes. That's where I am now. Probably I should up the time again to drop even faster, but the biggest thing is that this is not a race. I was so HAPPY TO GET TO THE FINISH LINE LAST AUGUST!!! And guess what? It was only the beginning. So don't rush yourself. Slow and steady because there truly IS no end. This has to be for the rest of your life - or else you'll gain back 15 pounds like so many of us have done!!

Good luck to you and keep up the great work. Also keep posting. We're all in this together!

Hi Lea and butterflytrg,

I can not thank you ladies for your kind words of support. I do understand that there is no rush to lose it but, there are those days you just want to see a bigger number or feel Iam sticking to this way of eating and not seeing what I think should be there. I do need to still reporgram my brain to understand this is whole new and healthy concept of eating to keep with you forever.
I would love to have support and a buddy to talk me through so again ladies, I feel much better knowing you are all here going it alone and some not but, together we can go through this journey. Lea I will try to go up to 700 for the next couple of days maybe even eat one of those protein bars or try to keep to the 20 almonds!! Do you have any other suggestions on other proteins to take in?? I have done shrimp,fish,chicken,turkey,lean steak not sure what else is left to up the calories without going overboard. Just wondering if you have any other nuggets of information for me. OK then THANK YOU again. I will keep posting.

Cathy

Forgot to let you know I hear you when you say you lose at a slower pace. I too have a condition that I think alot of others suffer with, hypothyroid so I wonder if those health issue slow us down that much more??
Just a thought.

I'll be cheering you on. I've been doing it on my own too, just too expensive. Good luck with the week one re-start. I'm doing the same thing this week. On day 3 and so far so good! So grateful for dill pickles!

Cathy, check out the Energy In Energy Out thread. I've looked at each and every entry in that thread at one time or another. You can get some great ideas for protein that you might not have thought of. Off the top of my head I can think of eggs, egg beaters, the protein pancakes (recipes on threads too), crab legs (a personal favorite), turkey sausage, turkey bacon, turkey pepperoni (with cheese for a crustless pizza), cottage cheese, low carb yogurt (we have Kroger brand Carbmasters here). Let us know what you find!

Hi everybody! Hope the newbies find this June thread okay.

Determined Gemini - It's good to have you back!

My oldest DD and fiance just got here this evening and we'll be heading to TX tomorrow to get them moved in to their new place. They left Ohio Tuesday and are in a rental moving truck, etc plus my 3 grandpets! So, I will resume week 1 anew on Monday 6/6.

Rachel - Congratulations to you for making wise choices during your trip/cruise. I think I'd have a hard time resisting the wonderful fresh fruits...and here it is an you only gained 1 pound...that's awesome! You look so beautiful and I'm sure your DH was proud to have you on his arm! =)

Jodi A, you wrote:

You've inspired me with the marathon you ran. Last year I wanted to do the Suan Komen 3 day walk for breast cancer but I knew my body wouldn't be able to handle it. My mom died of breast cancer a year and a half ago and I want to do it for her memory. Maybe this will be the year. It is at the end of October so if I start working at it now maybe I can do it!"

Last Spring and Summer my goal was to do the C25K so that I could, for the first time, RUN the 5K for the Race for the Cure (I'm a survivor from 4 years ago, post-op). Well, I did it! And then about 2 wks later a jogged another 5 K for the local city! Then we headed into winter, my grad school studies got heavier, I moved indoors more, and stopped jogging while studying more. Today I cannot jog more than 5 minutes. But, I will train and do it again!! I know you can be ready for the Race for the Cure by October. You have SO much to be thankful for!!! You can DO this!

Jubilantly and joyously jumping into the 180's!

Hello everyone
I had a better weigh in this week with a 3.8 loss. So happy and excited that I almost didnt feel the burn of that second shot
So I got back in the gym and upped my calories when I did a class or weights in the morning AND a 4mile walk in the evening. I weighed this morning on my scale and saw 189! I had to step off and get back on cuz I just knew that was someone else's weight. I also hit my mini goal that I wanted to hit in my head and that was getting below 192. This is the lowest I have ever seen my adult body.
This morning at my kickboxing class I was watching myself in the mirror and for the first time in a long long time felt proud of myself. I saw a thinner me and even though the tummy is still there and even a smaller tummy above that I still was proud. THAT my friends was what Opra calls an "aha" moment.
So this afternoon I'm treating myself to a massage . I hit my mini goal and I wanna rubdown for all my hard work! Hee hee

So glad to see everyone doing so well. I may not post a whole lot but I keep up with y'all and I think you guys are FABULOUS!!

Have a super duper weekend everyone
Peace Tiffany

Rachel, That's really great that you were able to not be tempted on your vacation. To have only been up 1 pound says a lot about how dedicated you are to making your goal. I believe because of that determination you will do just fine on your own. Besides we are here when you need us.

Hey thanks Betty! I do believe in rewarding yourself (non food wise). I was so close to my goal for a couple weeks in a row but I never hit the magic number so I waited and waited. It was worth it, the massage and the feeling of accomplishment and most of all the victory of defeat! I am a medi warrior!!! Woot woot!
Smiles for days, Tiffany

The lady at the clinic said it was normal for me to only go #2 every few days because of the fact i'm eating 800 calories and my body is using it all for fuel and there is not much waste, but I find this hard to believe. Can anyone offer any feedback into this?

Thanks Barb. I have one of those markets not too far from my home. I really went I think overboard last night, see what you think:
B:EAS Shake
L: 2 dry fried eggs
D: 3oz deli buffalo chicken
and the drum roll:
S: Pure Protein Bar, 3 tablespoons peanutbutter,1/2 cup greek yogart. I got to over 800 cals and 30 carbs, this would be the first time since April 25th that I ever went even over 18 carbs per day. Iam going back to 500 cals today, tomorrow is my anniversary going to a nice steakhouse in Boston I know I can do well there with steak,shrimp, salad and go from there. Thanks for letting me go on. Have you ever went over your carbs for the day?? I think I tried too hard getting in 700 cals and took it to the next level. I need to just get the protein in not the carbs.

lucluc42,
Alot depends on what is "normal" for your body. This diet really affected my "going" habits! I went into my first clinic visit telling the Dr. that I had been chronically constipated most of my life. And BOY this diet didnt help!
I tried stool softeners for a long time and Benefiber along with them... and they worked some. But the thing that helped me MOST is advice I read RIGHT HERE!!! Mary and some of the girls were taking Magnesium tablets daily. And Oh my gosh!! It helped me greatly. I now take 500 milligrams each morning (2 tablets) and my situation was solved. My system is "regular" and I do not feel stuffed and "backed-up" in my colon from lack of "going".

Give yourself some time, though. Your system may adjust and get used to this WOE. My whole first month was a huge struggle. My system was 1) overwhelmed at me drinking so much water and 2) not eating the fiber I had been eating to keep me regular.

Listen to the people at the clinic... they will help you greatly.
But, I found that I can get SUPER advice and wonderful support RIGHT HERE!!

I hope this helps

Blessings to ya!!

your clinic is correct......you are no longer eating anywhere close to the amount of calories you were eating to get you up to your starting weight. I KNOW for a fact, that I ate more calories at ONE MEAL prior to Medi than I did for a whole day once I started at Medi. You can research what your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is on line......it will give you an idea of just how many calories it takes JUST for you to be alive....like if you were in a coma, not moving etc. THEN add on top of that the calories it takes for you to move through your daily life, and on top of that to exercise. You are buring up those calories AND MORE (that's why you'll lose weight FAST) PLUS those calories are useful calories (protein) and not the junk calories from the stuff you used to put in your body. So you don't have much in the way of waste (poop)

Make sure you drink ALL of your water EVERY day.......it gets easier. I've read studies that say a huge part of the obesity problem in the US today is because we are dehydrated! What many feel as hunger is really thirst. I found that once I started drinking plain water as my main drink (Yes, I still drink coffee in the AM, and have diet pepsi, and crystal light but more now as a treat) I was MUCH more thirsty, so that made it easier to drink more. At your current weight you may find you'll lose more weight by drinking MORE than 128 ounces of water every day. The Dr. I worked for suggest that a person drink 1 ounce for every pound they weigh That might be overkill, but you MIGHT find yourself doing better by drinking more. Make sure you take your supplements.....I added Magnesium to that mix. Look online but, the side effect of too much magnesium is abdominal gas, or diarrhea, so you KNOW when you've reached your limit. IF you decide to try Magnesium, buy the CHEAPEST, and start with something like 400 mg, so you can take it as many times a day as needed, and even double up if need be. Then once you figure out a good amount for your body, you can buy a bigger dose next time so you only have to take 1 pill once or twice a day

Just wanted to chime in to say hello - I am completing week 5 of medi and have never felt more inspired or more good about myself in all my life. So glad that I stumbled upon you guys - you have been a wealth of information, support and inspiration - more so than my clinic at times! Hope to continue getting to *know* you all - and hope you all know how much you help others, even us silent ones, by sharing here. Have a great June : )

Last Spring and Summer my goal was to do the C25K so that I could, for the first time, RUN the 5K for the Race for the Cure (I'm a survivor from 4 years ago, post-op). Well, I did it! And then about 2 wks later a jogged another 5 K for the local city! Then we headed into winter, my grad school studies got heavier, I moved indoors more, and stopped jogging while studying more. Today I cannot jog more than 5 minutes. But, I will train and do it again!! I know you can be ready for the Race for the Cure by October. You have SO much to be thankful for!!! You can DO this!
That is fantastic! I am so glad to hear you are doing so great. I'm sure that was the scariest time in your life. Maybe I'll look into the Race for the Cure. The 3 day walk requires you to raise over $2000 in order to participate so that is more of a deterant right now than doing the walk! Thanks for the encouragement!

So I haven't been around much this week...things have been crazy with concerts and school year nearing a close!! I wanted to congratulate MARY on her first 5k!! Go you!

I have been trying, still to get below 200, but my body won't give it up right now. I just did a 5k today. I haven't done a race since Nov so this was a big one for me, now being 20+ lbs lighter then I was back in Nov. I am proud to say that my goal was to be at least a minute faster than my best time prior to weight loss and ......I DID IT!!! Surprise too because the start of the race was crazy and crowded. I kept trying to run and find spots to break out.

I did the 5k in 31:15! My best time yet. Woohoo. All this and still weighing 200lbs...crazy! And...not having much carbs either.

I am looking forward to relaxing tomorrow..after running the race this morning and then having a wedding to go to in the afternoon...I am beat. Goodnight all Medi-folk!
