That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
I had this same debate with myself. IN the end I did share with many, who would care, because losing weight had been such a part of me....or trying to...all my life. I felt like if I did the.
, didn't say anything and it WORKED, people who knew me would wonder if I had cancer or was seriously ill to have dropped that kind of weight quickly, when I hadn't been able to before. It's been therapeutic for me, but each case is different. I will say, I didn't share much except with family a close friends until just before I had it. Didn't need other's imput as I was still making my own decisions. But that's me..
I share with anyone who asks, in the.
That my obese friends and family will consider this.
And a better, healthier way of life..
Thanks for all your advice. I think I will share, it's a part of me...
I decided to share. I think that seeing someone get healthy and help eliminate some of the myths about GBS is a good thing...
I am 5 weeks out from having my.
And I too have struggled with how to inform or not inform people. This personal decision was mine alone and I too don't want a flood of different opinions flooding in..
Although I only shared with two friends at work before.
, since returning from short term disability, I decided that if a person was respectful enough to ask me up front and privately, I would be honest with them. And, I have..
I share minimal information though. I can already see how people are checking me out when I walk into the office and I am not comfortable with that. I don't want to be asked every day how many pounds I've lost. It's still pretty private for me but I know that it has begun to circle around the office..
I have to be okay with it because all news travels in these environments; we can't escape it..
As far as the future goes, seeing people down the line...I plan on answering those inevitable questions in this way.............
Yes, I have lost some weight. How? By eating better and getting more activity..
It isn't a lie, is it? It is the truth. I will have told them what they wanted to hear and yet kept my privacy in tact, only telling them what "I" am comfortable with..
You don't have to tell anyone anything you don't want to. Prepare yourself now for any anticipated questions or comments and you won't be caught off-guard later on and end up blurting out info you really hadn't intended on sharing..
It doesn't need to be awkward if you prepare..
, I told everyone...then I told a close friend whom did not support the idea at all. And for two months before my.
Everytime I would speak to her she would say something negative about it. I know she was trying to support me in her own way, with concern. But my decision was made. I ended up telling my close family and a few friends. I am now 2 months post op- and people notice. And I say- half as much Medifast food for half as much me!!.
Good luck on you journey...
I will tell you that I shared the news of having my.
To anyone that would listen even before I had the.
I was telling everyone as soon as I got my insurance approval! If I were you, I would be open and honest with everyone, because quite honestly everyone is going to see you dropping weight at a dramatic rate. So instead of them thinking that there is something wrong, I would let them know how proud you are of your decision to better you health. It is a wonderful thing that you did for yourself. Don't worry about what others think. If your friends are your true friends, they will support the decision that you made and be happy for you! Good luck!..
