My Journey to a Healthier Me with Medifast Go

With an influx of pumpkin this and pumpkin that dominating the autumnal season, the cooler seasons are when I struggle with my weight the most! That is why my invitation to join the Medifast Go diet program couldn’t have come at a better time.

How it All Began

My struggle with weight started as a teen after moving out of state and into a town of unfamiliarity. I had always been shy throughout my school years, but I became shyer once I became the target of bullying because of my shyness. One would have probably thought that this wouldn’t be the case with a private school, yet this was the case for me. The constant bullying caused me to become depressed and I turned to food for a solace of comfort. I did transfer to a different school after nearly two years, but the damage had already been done.

Food became my addiction. It wasn’t until a doctor told me that I weighed… A LOT. The crass way he put emphasis on “A LOT” made me cringe in embarrassment. I was at my heaviest at that time, weighing 175 lbs. I was inspired to change my life around from that day forward. I started going for walks, stopped my soda addiction as well as turning to food for comfort, and thought of my health in a whole new perspective. This new perspective brought me down to a healthy weight of 135 lbs.

Fast Forwarding to Years Later

I’m fast forwarding to years later! I continued to maintain a healthy weight for years and even after the birth of my son in 2006. I was down to my lowest weight (125 lbs.). I was probably in my early teen years the last time I was in that weight range! I went through a bout of depression in 2009 and this resulted in old, familiar habits, and I was back to teeter-tottering between 170 – 175 lbs. I took charge of my health in the following year. I enlisted the help of a diet meal plan and had a successful weight loss that brought me back down to my ideal weight.

Since weight loss came effortlessly easy after my first pregnancy, I thought I would have the same success after the birth of my daughter in 2012. This encouraged me to sign up for the same diet meal plan that I did in 2010. Unfortunately, my results weren’t as successful as the first time around, with only a 14 lb. weight loss, even though I was adamant about sticking to the plan. Of course, I understand that our metabolism tends to get slower as we older. After that diet plan, I was eating healthier than I ever was before and was hitting the trails regularly. Some of those “pregnancy pounds” continued to linger until I got pregnant with my third child last year.

My Journey to a Healthier Me

With an influx of pumpkin this and pumpkin that dominating the autumnal season, the cooler seasons are when I struggle with my weight the most! That is why my invitation to join the Medifast Go diet program couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m determined to lose at least 30 pounds. I want to get down to a healthy size, so I can be there for my family.

This is my first foray with Medifast Go, but I’ve read plenty of weight loss success stories. I also know that I can have a success story of my own in the coming months, especially since I’ve lost 6 lbs. And, this is after starting this program a little over a week ago! It is way different than the diet program that I was on in the past. Every two weeks, I’ll be sharing my experience with Medifast on here as well as social media.
