Week 15 Medifast Photos

I was able to finally take updated photos this week. Until now, it has been hard for me to see the difference in myself in the mirror. I know that I have lost weight. Obviously, the scale reads 24 less pounds, and I’m down nearly two dress sizes. However, having a visual of comparing “before” photos side-by-side with “current” photos, really helped put things into perspective. I’m going to swallow all of my pride here, and share the results so far.

My First Photos - yikes!

 And now…

WEEK 15 - my last weigh-in. (I cannot get the editing tool to format this the same as the last one. It’s driving me crazy!!! I apologize for the smaller view)

Medifast Week 15

Remember, this should not be considered my “after” photo, but rather as a ‘work in progress’ photo. I am far from finished! For me, the side view was most startling. That is where you can really see how my belly fat has reduced! Consequently, with such smaller circumference I can now wear a size 10/12 instead of 16. When I posed for the first photos, I purposely chose some shorts and a sport bra that were waaaayyy too small, with the idea that I would “shrink into them”. It’s nice that is what’s happening.

My next goals are as follows:

1. 4 more weeks of Medifast Take Shape For Life  - with an option to extend for 8 weeks. (My next order will process and ship this week).

2. Continue daily lunch-hour walk/jogs, with a 2-hour walk/jog on Saturday. I will also begin to introduce free weights, strength training and body sculpting.

3. A goal to lose 15  lbs. by Jan 1st. (that’s only asking for approx. 2 lb. loss per week). More would certainly be welcome!

4. Survive the Holidays WITHOUT GAINING! (my #1 challenge).

  1. Awesome! That’s great progress! You really look different. And I can imagine that you feel a lot different without all those extra pounds. I know I do! I was not brave enough to take ‘before’ photos. In fact, any pictures of me (even fully clothed) from that time period were usually censored into the trash – if I let them be taken at all. So, I applaud you for being able to now see the huge difference! Good for you!

    Keep up the great work!

  7. Wow, Such a Huge difference…..U got good results good results by using this medifast. By seeing your photos, i would like to suggest medifast to my friend he really want to reduce his weight. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I started Medifast 4 weeks ago and have already lost 20 lbs. I’d like to lose 80 more, so I’m just at the beginning stages. However, I already feel MUCH better and plan to continue this journey.

    Congrats on your success.

  9. Therefore, trust on choose credible software that accommodate all your need and requirement within less time. As mentioned before using CSS3 has the unfortunate downside of not being supported by older browsersmostly Internet Explorer, all the way up till version 8.
