Just wondering if anyone has missed their one year check up, either because they feel they have not done well enough, or just timing is off with other things in their lives.

Strange I know, but I loved optifast and have some left over from my surgery in Jan/16.

Hi everyone,

Everyday I look for my mentor on here, and I have not seen a post for over a month. 

I've not heard from her privately either which is unusual.

Wish I could find a better way to word all this, so I hope this is not too much information. Since I started Opitfast 3 days ago I have had horrendous diarrhea after nearly each shake. I can't even get my 4 pkgs/day in because I just can't handle the e
