That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic. It is not idly, passively waiting and hoping for some good thing to happen. It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying. We must never give up, regardless of temptations, frustrations, disappointments, or discouragements...
Oh no... I'm such a loser.. I started the thread again... sorry. didnt see where you had started it...ugh...
Duh.. anyway to delete the thread I started... anyone? anyone?..
Andi - can't delete - I made a note for all the lovelies to head this way.....
Thanks andi... sorry for the problem, but I had good intentions. was trying to do stuff too quickly...
So - hello and happy Totally Terrific Tuesday!!!.
Holiday dinner at work today. based on the menu I think I can make it a L&G (or more probably a partial L&G)... we'll see. What I know is that I will be OP, come home and bike or run and will be shootin' for 100oz and 50 humpies again..
Anyone else in?..
Absolutely! isn't the first time - done it myself - won't be the last.
Better two than none.
Gald to see you here up and going... any thoughts on those "maybe more exercise" plans.....?.
Enjoy your coffee..
Hey andi... many more thoughts on the exercise. love my new wii fit, but this cold is kickin my butt. have slept too late 3 mornings now..
Enjoy the holiday dinner. I never thought it possible to be OP regardless of what is going on or what is being served, but it is possible. not easy, but possible. On sunday, I stood in the kitchen eating my pancake muffin, while others noshed on bagels. yes, all the good (in my opinion) jewish food was present. My real PRESENT to me was wearning a cute cord dress that I knew was a size Large and tights that were a Small. I bought tights and for the first time I actually was in the small category for height and WEIGHT!..
More shammies better show up asap, or I will keep rambling on and on and on... I promise not to sing...
Ok... you all need to hope my Medifast package comes in the mail today... I had beef stew for breakfast today!.
Hope you all have great days today.....
I am off today so I am just heading out to the gym. Sister just called me frantic because her truck was making noises and the check engine light went on. Intalked to her till she made it to school. I told her to calm down, go take her final and we would deal with it after. We can tow it to a repair place if needed. Now I need to get to the gym so I am done when she is.
Andi - I am in for the water and will try to get my humpies in. Enjoy your holiday dinner at work..
Andrea- thanks for keeping us going this morning. Hope you feel better..
Morning to all the rest of the shammies. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!.
Hey kori... hope all works out ok with your sis. car troubles are a big pain. enjoy your day off and time at the gym..
Thanks for props, Lori. cant beleive I'm at my original goal. I'm there, it's true..
Gonna eat lunch soon. leavin work at 3 today. taking kids to see HP at imax theater tonight, but takes an hour to get there. lets hope the sound is working this time. LOL... be back later......
Wonder how ang, lara, barb, jo, lauri, jill, erin and darlene are doing today? I know sandy had a golf thing today....
Much good vibes to the missing shammies......
Busy day already.

Hope everyone is having a great day!..
Sitting in hospital waiting rm waiting for dh to get out of surgery. Should know something in about an hr. Using my new iPad and it's great so far. Much easier to type than mt iPhone Going for some coffee so I'll bbl...
Hi barb... sorry I forgot about hubby's surgury. hope all goes well. enjoy the ipad..
Hey erin.. I hate when that happens. hope the rest of your day goes better...
Hi all. Sorry I havent' been here. To make a ridiculously long story short as possible.....
I have had a lot of drama the last few weeks. My Olivia is having real bullying issues at school that have just become physical (some kid ripped her sleeve off at school yesterday); we've been trying new therapies (O.T.) for the baby; still more drama with hubby's ex-wife; and my mom fell off the wagon and started drinking again after 2.5 years or so sober. My life is trying to kill me now, so I've just not been around as much as I would like..
I am always thinking of you guys and hopefully things will ease up soon in this quarter..
I think maybe it's time to turn this in to a weekly thread...
Hey shammies super busy here today as usual. Last night my team won the vball tourney- yeah! But I left my wAllet with Everything including my phone there. So this morning I had to go through daycare at the church to get to the gym and luckily it was there. It is at a church so I figured I was safe but hate that..
Thanks Andi for wondering how my day was going..
Ang- I'm so sorry about e drugging going on. If you need anything on the OT front let me know. What is school doing about the bullying- isn't there a big national campaign against bullying right now?.
I know we are all busy now especially with the holidays but I hope after all is said and done that the thread becomes more lively again, I hate the thought of a weekly thead!.
Ok gals, where is everyone? It's still a few weeks away till Christmas. I'm home now. I left the hospital, stopped for a chicken salad and met our friend here who was keeping an eye on the dogs and putting wood in our outside burner. Going to go relax for the evening. I'll try to check with you guys tomorrow before heading back to town. Cmon shams, make some noise!!!!..
I am *just* finding some time to catch up with you fine folk. My life has been busy busy busy the past week. Tons and tons of schoolwork, studying, and I'm helping a friend move. Looking forward to my first weigh-in on Friday. Feels good to be back!..
Super low numbers on posts here in shammy land. I had a quick minute to see how everyone is doing and to say it has been a 75/25 day...75% grand and 25% pooey sicky. I will take those odds for now for sure. Awaiting the authorization for the repeat MRI under anesthesia that asshat surgeon needs. no not the surgeon, the front office. but it is a bad time of year to get things done.
I dont have time to re check the past few days but a few special things come to my pea brain to mention..
Sandy, the reunion surprise for your mom is so wonderful, just the kind of love that fills the heart with holiday hope..
Barb-thanks again for the kind note and hope the surgery goes perfectly for DH.
Missing Lauri for sure. worried and praying she will be back soon..
Kori- you are so rocking MF. I will be you after surgeries and wellness comes back to our house..
Andi- I always love your hi lovies.
Ang-my heart goes out to your dd and your family. we lived some bad bully years and it affects every area of life. I always hope less tolerance will allow supervisiors to take actions to stop this..
Andrea-your ticker is inspiration and so perfect..shamrocking toward your gold prize..
Capt sexy -I always an amazed you find such perfect and varied quotes to share with us, then you rock it with some great blunt naughty words to stir up the humor..
I know I missed some pals, Imreallysorry.net must go cha cha for Timbo and see if we can make Hobo dinner for grandpa and his croonies..
Hugs bbl or bbt, be back tomorrow..
Hi Patrickglad to see you're still hanging with us. Darlene, glad your day is on the plus sidehope everything keeps going your way...
Darlene - thanks for the great shout outs..

Take care everyone...
All that and no hubbie update - is all OK?..
BTW Barb - I love when you "say" "gals" cuz I can TOTALLY hear it..
Congratulations Sandy Ms Golf Grand Master......
