Medi Friends 2017

Hi Everyone!

I was not seeing a thread for Medi Wieghtloss 2017 so I made one.

My name is Danielle and I recently started with Medi on 1/12/17. My first week was hell in that I did not lose the big amount that people rave about week 1. I account it to already having been on a diet and a smoothie cleanse prior to starting so all of my water weight was gone as I had lost 20 lbs on diet and exercise alone.
So my week one I had lost 1.5 lbs that included - 3 lbs of fat and +1.5 lbs of water. I was totally discouraged through out the week as my weight increased and increased steadily over the course of the week and did not start going down till day 5 or so. I am unsure of what to account that to but I was not happy.
Overall, I am really happy so far with the process and was so glad that they said I can now have veggies. Please let me know if there is anyone else out there that is doing Medi 2017. Look forward to hearing from you.

Danie

I'm doing Medi and started 1/3/2017. I had made a thread but it seemed I was the only one so didn't update it.

I made a weight loss journal in the sub-forum for it. Here is the link if you would like to read: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...d.php?t=885854

As for my experience, I did get a nice sized loss the first week and have continued to have what I consider "good" losses each week. One think I did was go zero carbs, and only way I got any was because they just snuck in somehow. Even now, on my fourth week, I don't have veggies in my approach. I do have some carbs via eggs or my electrolyte supplement but I keep that low. I supplement with a nice vitamin set so the lack of veggies isn't hurting me.

And, Hello!

New appt Friday

HI there.. I have my first appointment this coming Friday. I'm a little surprised and concerned about the level of activity on this board. Starting to think maybe the diet is not so popular anymore? Before moving out of state, I lost weight in 2009 on medi weightloss. There was so much activity on this board back then. A lot of support and help.

Unfortionately before getting to maintenance stage, I lost my job and moved out of state. Could kick myself for not just starting maintenance anyway because I have gained all back in the last 8 years. Anyway, new start, new state, new office. I remember it being hard but also working. My biggest issue in the past was wine(which I love) throwing me out of ketosis.

Hello! I'm active in the Weight Loss Journal and the Exercise board, come on by.

As far as popularity I think the biggest thing is the cost and going to appointments. Additionally the exposure. I had never heard of it until my brother in law mentioned it.

It's really helping me, that's all I know.

I had my first appointment on Friday. On day 4 so far so good. Had a headache on first day but I think that was due to fasting for blood work and by the time I got home it was almost noon. Omega fish burps were AWEFUL the first day. so Gross. Not sure it was on a empty stomach or what but I have only been able to take 1 each day so far. In Ketosis on day 3 so jugging along. Superbowl party was tough. Not with temptation but with very limited options. I brought chicken skewers but everyone loved them and ate them too.

I've been doing fish oil for a few years now and have not yet had a fish burp. Not looking forward to my first one.

I think many times the thought of "I want that" is not a real desire but you remember that you SHOULD want it so it's present. I don't have any real desire for food now, for the most part, but I did have a meal of pizza this past Saturday just to stop me from wanting everything I see just because I think I should. Needed a small reset, and it worked.

I'm back on medi after 2 years off. I lost 7.4 the first week, 4.2 the second, nothing the 3rd or 4th and 1.2 the 5th. I'm getting discouraged but the 2 weeks that I didn't lose I was sick in bed to I didn't move much at all. I need to lose at least. I'm excited that people are posting on this board again, I look forward to sharing tips!

Hi All. Started Medi on 02/13/17. I had to change my appt due to my work schedule so I ended up going today. I'm down 8!! Which I know is water. But I'm happy. I have a lot to lose so this is encouraging. I'd love to hear from peeps who've done medi before. There are literally zero forums/pages where medi people can connect which I find in this day and age is weird.

I just had my first appointment this morning. I did MWL about 5 years ago and had a lot of success, kept it off for 2 years, then life happened Hoping to have similar success this time around! I'm doing phentermine again since it worked for me last time.

I just started back on Medi. I had good luck with it a few years ago but lots of life changes happened in the meantime. Now I'm serious. Day 1 went well. The worst part was the fish oil so that's pretty good. It won't be easy but it will be worth it.

Just got back from week 1 weigh in and I'm down 6.4 pounds. I'm pretty psyched. Is anybody out there?

I'm here! I had my first weigh-in today and was down 9.6 pounds! Super excited! Even more exciting is being able to add vegetables -- I've never been so excited to eat a salad in my life.

New to Medi!!!

Hey everyone. This is day 3 of my weight loss journey. Brand new to this type of diet. Going good, except today I'm hungier than the other couple of days. Not sure why but hopefully today will be the worse day. Hows everyone else doing? I'm excited to see how this goes as I've seen lots of positive results.

Week 5 done. 20 lbs total loss. Been very up and down for me. Big loss some weeks, less some others. Overall happy. Caught my kids cold and this week has been tough. I found out the hard way that Nyquil kicks you out of ketosis. So back to week 1 for me for the next few days.

1st official weigh -in

Hey everyone...first official weigh in and I lost 9 lbs!!! Pretty stoked. It wasn't too hard, but glad to finally get a few vegetables. Can't believe that it is only 2 servings though....which it was more oh well, better than none!!

Good luck everyone ...we can do this!!!

Greetings all,
I'm day 4 in week one. That first night I literally thought something was wrong. My head was pounding!!!! I'm over that now. Thank God!!!
Now I'm still having difficulty getting in all the supplements. It's a lot of pills.
Do any of you do the mid week injections?
I'm thinking about heading in tomorrow.
Happy I found this board.
