Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
I have never had high.
And taking compliments is hard for me. This is something else I will have to learn to do. We are going through so many changes, aren't we?!..
I, also have never been great at accepting compliments. Since I work with the public it has gotten much easier. Now a thank you and a smile comes pretty easy.lol..
After losing 170 lbs. I often get comments from acquaintences. Often they think I've had some sort of illness and ask if I am alright. Others just want to know how I lost so much weight. Sometimes I just say I have made positive changes in my life and sometimes I tell the truth and tell them about my.
And new lifestyle. Either way, the feedback is postitive...
I know what you mean. I just saw my son's.
Teacher at the store and haven't seen her since January, right before my.
She only recognized me from my kids and was so in shock, saying you have lost a lot of weight, what are you doing? I guess to me 123 lbs can't be passed off with just Medifast diet and exercize. So for me personally I always respond that I had GBS. I don't explain anything further than that, just I had.
And they just take that in and say wow you look great. And I say thank you, and that's it. Don't worry, you'll figure out the right thing to say, but be prepared to feel like a celebrity, paparazzi and all, lol...
Here is my take on it...be it right or wrong. I AM PROUD to say what I have been through! It takes a very special and dedicated person to follow through with all the things you go through with bariatric.
When someone asks me how I lost all the weight I proudly tell them..."Weihtloss.
And A LOT of old fashioned HARD work" :).
There is no shame in my game and I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to partake in the perverbial "SAVING" of my own life.....
This was not too bold./:).
Just a thought, that's all!.
Have a great day!.
When I first decided to have the.
, I kept it secret and only a few people knew, my closest friend and I even waited until I had the approval from the insurance before I told my Mom and Sister. This was very upsetting to them, because we are very close. They were more upset that I didn't discuss it with them before I decided and were very happy with my choice to have the.
The wek I had.
, because of our car situation and having 6 kids and hubby having to work, my friend was keeping my kids and my hubby was working and coming to see me in between going back to.
To go to work. An acquaintance of mine asked my friend why she was keeping my kids for almost a week. She responded and told her that I was having the.
, and this persons response was "Thank God, have you seen her ass, I thought she was going to have a heart attack and die, and we would end up raising her kids"...... I WAS FLOORED! I was like... is that really what people think of me? Then I was like... she is the LAST person on earth that would ever end up with my kids... but it was then that I decided that I made a good decision, and if people ask I tell them, people are going to think what they want...When I get comments about how easy it is, I tell them to try my "diet" for one week and let me know what they think ;) The decision is yours, but don't be ashamed, the entire process is a tool, a gift and we deserve the credit for the work, the.
Was easy, we were out cold... everything after is work and dedication!.
I agree with Kimmie and Karla. I don't mind saying that I had.
That my story will inspire others who are morbidly obese to consider having.
, too. It is a live saving, life changing thing..
I think if people understand that you are improving your health they will be cheering you on, not criticizing..
Good luck. I.
Year goes well..
