Today, I hopped on the scale to find out how much weight, if any, I have lost on the Medifast plan this week. I have to admit, I was nervous getting on the scale because I haven’t felt fantastic this week.
Last week I lost 8.8 lbs., which was a bit shocking to me.
You might be surprised to find out how much weight I lost on Medifast week number 2. Click here, or click the image above to find out!
So, this week I lost…1.8 lbs.
Yeah. I have to admit, it’s a little less thrilling than the 8 lbs. I dropped last week, however, a loss is a loss and I know that 1-2 lbs. per week is more in the normal and healthy range.
The fatigue that I anticipated in Medifast week 1 has actually hit me like a ton of bricks in week 2. I just feel wiped out, and I’ve been struggling with the desire to veer off the plan and just EAT — but I haven’t.
The other thing that PROBABLY inhibited my weight loss this week was skimping on the water, and drinking too much Diet Coke.
I know, Diet Coke is pretty much the devil but I’ve been craving it more than usual this week. It’ my goal for week 3 to limit Diet Coke and drink much, much more water.

New foods from Medifast
I plan to go into more detail about the foods soon, what I like, and what I don’t like. I did want to tell you about some brand new foods launched this month though! One of them is REALLY EXCITING — macaroni and cheese!
When you haven’t had pasta for a while, the sight of macaroni and cheese is pretty amazing. The Medifast Macaroni and Cheese smells and tastes a lot like Kraft Mac N’ Cheese. It is very important to follow the cooking instructions on the packet, and to let it sit to thicken up.
It tastes pretty good to me, I will absolutely be ordering more next month!
Medifast also introduced the new Lean and Green Meal Helpers, including a Brown Gravy Mix and a Fajita Seasoning Mix. I haven’t tried these yet, but I LOVE that I will be able to use these to spice up my Lean and Green meals!
