When they do my In Body, I step on this super-high-tech machine and stand *just so* with my hands holding these bars *just so*. It whirs and clicks and does its thing. It then spits out a lovely multi-colored analysis sheet that I always ask for my own copy of so that I can show Cosmo my “report card.” In addition, one of the sweet ladies at the Medifast Center measures me. All over. Neck to ankles. You’d be amazed. I won’t go into detail, but there are 17 places from which she takes measurements. She writes down each measurement on a spreadsheet with my measurements from the other times we’ve done measurements in order to compare. I always ask for my own copy of this, as well. It is also my report card.
Here are the results from this past month…

Pounds left to lose: 0!!
I’m not quite at my goal weight – 5 lbs. away- but according to all the statistics and calculations, I don’t *need* to lose any more. All that means is that I have moved into Phase 2 of the plan – Stabilization! Wahoo!! The only change this week is that I add 1 cup more of veggies per day, but next week…I get fruit. I’m so stoked. I miss fruit. Irrationally. I crave bananas. I drool over strawberries. I stare longingly at grapes. I confess. It’s more than a little odd. They don’t have a “normal” range for fruit craving…
