Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
I absolutely agree with you. This site is such a blessing before Sunday, I really felt I was alone in this journey. Now I have been uplifted and rejuvenated..
Thanks for your uplifting post!.

Very well said... we are indeed blessed to have this second chance at life...
Thanks Lin for the reminder..
We are lucky and blessed. I had a friend 44 years old. (my age when I choose to admit it) who passed away last November from gall bladder/pancreatic cancer. She had a 15 year old son. AND I know first hand the devastation of loosing my mother at a young age. My own mother passed away when I was 10 years old and she was 44 years old of leukemia back in 1976 when it was still so very untreatable.
I still miss my mother every single day..........................
When we think we have it bad we only need to look beyond ourselves to reach out and see someone hurting and someone worse off than we are to remind us just how lucky and blessed we really are..
Love ya Lin! Just saw our boy today... he was upbeat per his usual and told me that he was going to have Dr. Cello (the dept chair) call me because he doesn't understand why i'm having all this nausea. He was like, "we fixed your stricture, now go out and eat" I laughed at him and told him that even.
Is making me nauseated..
He said that I'm experiencing this strange nausea phenomenon that some people experience and eventually with time, it goes away. I do believe that... So I'm just going to try my best and be grateful that I have another month to figure this out before going back to work..
Wish me luck and I.
To meet you very soon..
Thanks for some perspective. We are all very lucky to have this site..
There are reminders on this site that life can be, and is, good. And people suffering from obesity need that. I have a BMI of 59 Super Morbidly Obese. But I'm on the path to WLS to get my "second chance at life." I just need to remember everything I'm doing is another step toward my goal, being able to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of my life. This site keeps me on track. I haven't been around long, but it's helped...
Great post. Thank you for reminding us how lucky we truly are! My Mom died when she was only 56 from cancer. I also miss her every single day. At least I was 36 and had her for that long. I can't even imagine the devastation of losing your Mom when you are a young child...
