702

I HAVE LOST OVER 22LBS IN 2 WEEKS. I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AND MY ENERGY LEVEL IS THROUGH THE ROOF. I BEEN TALKING TO MY FAMILY MEMBERS ABOUT JOINING THIS JOURNEY WITH ME AS WELL. MY LONG TERM GOAL IS TO LOSE 524lbs. I KNOW THAT I WILL HAVE TO TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME BECAUSE THIS DID'NT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. I FEEL THAT OVER THE YEARS I HAD LET MYSELF GO. I HAD ALWAYS PUT EVERYONE BEFORE ME AND I JUST DID NOT TAKE NOTICE TO WHAT I WAS DOING TO MYSELF. I HAVE LYMPH EDEMA LIKE I MENTION IN THE OT HE BLOG. I BEEN TRYING TO GET HELP BUT DUE TO MY SIZE I CAN'T GET THE HELP THAT I NEED FROM THESE DOCTORS AROUND HERE. I LIVE IN A RURAL TOWN IN GA. WE DON'T HAVE A HOSPITAL OR ANYTHING IN THIS LITTLE TOWN. I BEEN TRYING TO GET HELP FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS AND I KEEP GETTING TURN DOWN. I TRY GETTING INTO A LIVE IN CENTER IN OHIO BACK IN 2005. THEY TOLD ME THAT I WAS ACCEPTED BUT COME MARCH OF 2006 I RECEIVED A CALL SAYING THEY WAS NO LONGER ACCEPTING PEOPLE. THAT WAS NOT THE TRUTH I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN!! THE WOMAN THAT I SPOKE WITH ON THE PHONE SAID THAT SHE WOULD SEND ME A PACKAGE WITH THE NAMES OF OTHER CENTERS THAT COULD HELP ME AND IT STILL HA VENT COME YET.(SAD) I ALSO TRIED TO GET INTO THIS PLACE IN NEW YORK THEY SAID NO BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,DIABETES OR OTHER DIEASES LIKE THAT. I TOLD HER I DO NOT WANT TO DIE LIKE THIS AND I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP. I'VE EVEN WENT AS FAR AS CALLING A HOSPITAL IN ATLANTA GA AND ASKED THEM TO PUT ME IN THE HOSPITAL TO SAVE MY LIFE. I WAS TOLD THEY CAN NOT DO THAT!!!!! WHEN I HUNG UP THE PHONE I JUST BROKE DOWN AND CRIED BECAUSE IT WAS LIKE THERE IS NO HOPE FOR ME. I'M REALLY THINKING I'M GOING TO DIE IN THIS ROOM. MY MOM CAME IN TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AND SAID BABY DON'T GIVE UP THAT IS NOT IN YOU TO DO THAT. I THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT SHE SAID FOR A FEW MINUTES AND I REPLIED MY QUEEN YOU ARE RIGHT. I WILL BEAT THIS WITHOUT THEIR HELP AND I WILL TELL MY STORY. SO AFTER A CARING PERSON TOLD ME ABOUT MEDIFAST AND WHAT IT HAD DONE FOR A FRIEND OF THEIRS I DIDN'T HESITATE TO CONTACT THEM. I TALK TO A REP ABOUT MY SITUATION BECAUSE I WANTED TO SEE IF MEDIFAST WOULD SPONSOR ME. SHE TOOK DOWN MY INFORMATION AND SAID THAT SHE WILL PASS IT ON TO THE ADD PEOPLE FOR MEDIFAST. I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THEM YET BUT I CAN NOT KEEP WAITING THEM. THIS IS MY LIFE SO I ORDERED ME A MONTH SUPPLY WHEN I GOT MY SSI AND THAT WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY LIFE. SO AS OF WEDNESDAY MARCH 17,2010 I TOOK BACK CONTROL OF MY LIFE AND I'M NEVER GOING TO LET ANYTHING KEEP ME FROM WINNING THE BATTLE AGAIN MORBID OBESITY AND LYMPH EDEMA... I HAVE 502 LBS TO GO!!!!STAY SAFE AND BE BLESSED...

I'm so proud of you for taking control. There is hope. I was felt the same as you back in 2006 and just did it, order Medifast, which was the best thing I have ever done for myself. It has literally saved my life and it will save yours too. We will do this together. I am always here for you. Keep up the great work.
God Bless, Mary

Thanks for sharing your journey with me. I know you can do this and I'm so inspired by you. I hope you hear back from Medifast and they sponsor you. I know it costs a lot of money but it's sooo worth it. You'll be amazed at how little you spend by not buying 'bad' food. Take care, my friend. I'm here for you whenever you need me! Lucy (lb315)
