Ht. 5'5", Start: 235 lb, Today: 203 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 130 lb - Ok. so havnt been on here in forever. In december i started the Medifast diet. It worked so well. By the time i went on vacation a few weeks later i had lost 15 pounds. Well then i got off of it on vacation and just got back on it today. I gained all the weight back wich sucked but im dedicated to get on track and lose the weight. I also hurt my ankle wich has kept me from doing alot of walking or running. Well its kinda better now so im gonna start walkng and everything else. Im having a hard time toning my arms though. I hate them any tips for that and thighs too. lol.

Hey, I think maybe the reason you gained the weight back was because you are on a Medifast "diet"...when you want to lose weight, you should elimate the word 'diet' all together because diet is temporary, and you want to lose weight permanently don't you? my advice is to not go on any diets. Just elimate the bad foods and exercise. You know what's right for you! it's not rocket science. Eating right + exercise results in weight loss. You just have to be consistent. You can do it. Tips for thighs...lunges are really great, try those. Also, just do lots of cardio that'll tone you up. Good luck!
