You did make it! I am pretty full after my L&G too. And don't you worry, you will see a reward on the scale!!!.
Congrats on making it through the first few days. I love that feeling of being full, and knowing that I haven't over eaten, or stuffed my body with terrible food..
I know how you are feeling! Today was day 2 for me and after eatting only two of my Medifast meals I felt extremely full and bloated. I actually told my husband that I am afraid that I am going to gain weight rather lose it!.
I feel the same way, and I'm day 3. I'm actually struggling to get my last Medifast meal in now, and it's a brownie, which I love!.
I remember thinking toward the end of my 1st week, "I must be doing something wrong. This is too easy. I'm not only, not hungry, I'm full. I just know that I'm going to get on the scale & see I've actually gained weight.".
I really thought I must have done the math wrong when I got on the scale & was down 17.5 pounds (results will vary).
The first week or two I never felt hungry; in fact, very full and bloated. That waned over the next few weeks and honestly, I have to say the past week (my 7th) I have been extremely hungry and cravings are out of control - well not really, I haven't given in to any, but I am having a hard time. I went through my closet Saturday and was so excited to be able to fit into my smaller suits and jeans. It definitely makes dealing with the cravings a little easier!.
I found I needed to split my L&G some days because I was just so over full. Other days, my full L&G was just enough. A lot of it depends on what I'm eating that day. I find shakes, oatmeal and pretzels/puffs made me feel fuller. A steak and salad L&G was just enough, but an egg beaters L&G had to be chopped up into three meals, half for L&G, 1/4 for another meal and 1/4 for the last..
The beauty of MF. However, eat all your meals so you get all the nutrients..
Yea! Thats such a wonderful feeling! Congrats on your losses!!!!.
Sundays I find are my hardest to eat too during the week, kinda weird maybe cuz I'm in lazy mode all day LOL.
Thanks for all your responses! You all make this process/journey so much more tolerable and positive..
