100 lbs to lose! First day of first week!
Hello everyone! I just started the first day of my medi weightloss program/diet and I am feeling like I will never make it through the first week on such a restricted plan. Does anyone have any advice? I guess I could use some positive reinforcement too.
Here's a little about me..I'm 29...I've struggled with my weight my whole life. I started losing weight in 2009 by working out and eating a restricted calorie diet. My starting weight then was 345 lbs. I lost over 50 lbs. in 4.5 months for my wedding by attending classes at Get In Shape for Women and following a strict diet. Fast forward to a year ago and my marriage failed. I gained back almost all of what I lost in 2009, reaching 317 lbs. again.
I moved from my home in Boston to Orlando, FL in December 2011 and have lost 30 lbs on my own since then, bringing my weight down to 287. BUT, I feel like I could be losing faster and really needed a structured program and to be held accountable, so I joined Medi this week while they were running a $100 off super starter special. I have high hopes for the diet, but its only my first day and I'm SO HUNGRY! I don't mind the lack of variety in my food, I just hate being hungry.
I weigh in next Thursday and am just trying to take things one day at a time. I am hoping for a big loss at my first weigh in to keep me motivated.
Anything that helped you when you started the diet? Also, did anyone experience any hair loss on the plan due to lack of vitamins? I have very long thick hair, and I love it, so if the diet causes me to lose any I'm going to be very sad. I am only worried because the nutritionist told me to take 5000 mcg of biotin every day for my hair and nails. Losing my hair will depress me and make me quit the diet, so I really hope it's not an issue.
I'd appreciate all comments!
