Take Shape for Life/Medifast is sponsoring me on this weight loss journey. Results and opinions are my own.
Week 2 is in the books and if you recall, week 1 I lost an amazing 8 lbs! This is not “typical” (the first two weeks are usually 2-5 lbs), but I will take it! This week the weight loss slowed down some and I lost an additional 3.7 lbs. From here on out, I can expect an average weight loss of 2 lbs a week, provided I continue to complete the program as directed.
Before I address anything else, the excitement for my week is that not only did I get to meat my health coach from Take Shape for Life, Greg Rex, I also got to meet the founder of Take Shape – Dr. Anderson! They were here in Denver to promote Take Shape for Life and I jumped at the chance to meet them. Greg has been wonderful so far as my coach, and since he’s based out of San Diego, the chance to meet with him one on one had to be taken! I really hope I have a chance to meet up with these guys again once I am at goal, so I can have some awesome before and after shots!
I’m slowly settling into the Medifast and Take Shape for Life lifestyle. It truly is a lifestyle which includes making good food choices and striving for optimal health. Dr. Anderson has written books on the topic of optimal health, including Habits of Health, which I am slowly making my way through right now. I am still in the infancy of my journey, and hope to someday not only meet my goal, but maintain my weight and achieve optimal health.
I’m continuing to document my progress and thoughts on my YouTube channel, where you can learn a little more about my likes and dislikes on the program, and my thoughts as each week passes. I’d love for you to check my videos out.
