Stalled on weight loss
I love the clinic I go to in Johnston, RI
They are quite caring ... in fact, I drive 20 miles further than a closer clinic to come to this one.
I've been on Medi Weightloss before and lost quite a bit.
Life happens (smile) and finally came back after a few years.
Basically mentioning this so I can demostrate I "know the drill" about the program. Smile
My question is:
I'm perplexed. I was losing weight at a reasonable rate then basically - nothing.
I'm following the program PERFECTLY - no joke - my hubby laughs at how rigorously I'm weighing food, logging, etc.
I'm drinking 110 oz of water minimum
I'm faithfully taking all the pills at set times
I'm going to the gym and using the treadmill (and adding the protein calories per calories burned as instructed: example burn 300 calories on treadmill, eat 100-150 more calores in protein)
I haven't "cheated" at all
yet - boom - I'm "stalled"
I am patient - but of course, as many of you know on this program ... there's a significant cost and I'm campaigning to my hubby to keep on it ... which is easier to win if I was actually losing at least a pound (big smile)
I was told today (I go in a 2nd time during the week to get the extra shots)
maybe I need to mix up my menu.
I need some encouragement and suggestions from the folks on the diet.
Bless the staff - but most of them have never been on the diet and it's all "theory"

Pat, I just came back to Medi and am doing week 1. I'm sorry this question hasn't been answered yet! How long have you been stalled? What is your weight now? How old are you? Have you ever had thyroid issues?
In regards to the "mixing it up" part, I have seen threads on here where people have upped their carbohydrates for a week and then went back down to 10g or so and have had a lot of success.
Since I'm about 3 years older and have significantly less to lose, I am bracing myself for a slow moving scale this time. Note: I am not attending the clinic this time. I just can't justify paying initial fee plus the weekly visits when I'm not on the appetite suppressant. I do miss the support though and love the people at my clinic! Even though, like you said, I have a suspicion they were all born cute and skinny! lol
In Wellness as of 6/4/2010!
