Medifast results week 1

As you know, I blogged about my personal weight loss journey last week, and I told you that I had started Medifast.

Well, this morning I stepped on the scale for the first time since I started the plan. I was excited and nervous to see my Medifast week 1 results, and honestly, when I looked down at the numbers on the scale… I was shocked.

My Medifast results for week 1

So, Medifast claims that you lose 2 to 5 pounds per week in the first two weeks, but I must be special, because I lost 8.8 pounds! OMG!

Medifast Week 1 Results: Down 8.8 lbs. | via

I just realized today how filthy and ugly my scale is, haha.

I am quite certain that some of that weight was water, however, I’m still really pleased.

Want to know how I did it?

Well, I followed the Medifast plan EXACTLY over the past week. I actually feel like I deserve a medal, not so much for the weight loss, but for sticking to the plan. I ate my 5 daily Medifast meals every two hours, and prepared 1 Lean & Green Meal each day.

Those Lean & Green Meals are actually so satisfying at dinner time. You can have a pretty large portion of lean meat (varies based on the meat, I had grilled chicken most days but also pork loin and roast beef).

I won’t say that this week was EASY, because it wasn’t. I felt a little headachey and tired for the first couple of days, but now, I’m really in a rhythm, and I feel perfectly well. Not super energized and not fatigued, just normal.

Normal and 8.8 lbs. lighter!

I know that I can not expect such dramatic results every week. Really, I do. I’m attacking my weight loss one day at a time, and really, one meal at a time. I am definitely becoming more conscious of what I eat, and I know that’s a good thing.
