Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
From Miss Lara:.
Ok don't have time to fully set up the thread this morning, so hopefully one of you regulars will do that- sorry..
But I wanted to get on and check in this morning to help myself stay on track for the challenge. Yesterday was hard, but I did it. Meaning today will be just a bit easier. Heading to gym straight from work, which will give me my 3 days, which I will have to say I'm rockin. Then going to eat at PF CHangs for my Dad's Bday. I'll have to be careful there, but I'm thinking lettuce wraps will be ok.
Have a great OP day hookahs- WI is only a couple more days. I'm so excited for all of us...
As suspected...it got screwed up. I'm sorry. It was PERFECT on the preview...then I saw that the opening paragraph is tiny when posted...I tried to change it...too late. I should learn to just leave well enough alone..
Other than that...have a GREAT day!..
Sorry I was MIA yesterday - rushing trying to get a few things done by the end of my week - I only work at that job M-Th... and don't work at the other until Sunday....
Oh glorious day off today- and you know me - to start enjoying it right - I'm going back to bed.
Will try to be more "ON" today... Have a great one - and drink your water..
WTH is everyone? My baby is sick so I gotz the excuses. Won't be on much today b/c asshat boss is back in town and here to torture me!..
Have the best day you can. We love you..
Hi Andi and Ang ~.
I was wondering the same thing...it was eerily quiet..
Everytime Asshat starts to give you grief...remember his cell phone and smile..
Andi ~ Enjoy your day(s) off!!!..
A man is dining in a fancy restaurant and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to talk with her..
Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out of it's socket toward the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back..
'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman says as she pops her eye back in place.....
'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you,' she says..
They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theatre followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams and he shares his.. She listens..
After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time...
The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed. Everything had been SO incredible! 'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?'.
'No,' she replies...
Wait for it...
The suspense is killing you, isn't it?.
'You just happened to catch my eye.'..
Quiet is right!.
Thanks Lauri for starting us off the proper way..
Ang- hope dd feel better and asshat leaves you alone..
Andi- Enjoy your day off.- I'm jealous...
Lauri- Loved the story..
Ang - you get more flies with honey. I was just thinking of Azzhat when that came out. Hope DD is better..
Andi - enjoy your day. I am doing great with my water thanks to you..
Lara - hope your day goes quick..
I am cleaning house today...
WHERE IS EVERYONE? It scares me when it's this quiet b/c it usually means everyone is out eating their faces off..
Work still nutty!..
Hi guys just stopping in to say hi!.
For all you jersey girls!..
Ang, picking up nev at school. Totally op baby. Love ya...
Quick check in from work. Just finished making the cutest freakin' oreo cookie turkeys. They turned out so good! It was round 2 today in my class for those. We kind of ran out of time making them at the end of the day yesterday so I went to the store last night to buy some more stuff. It was worth the "do-over". I will try and post some pics here..
Will go back and check the messages. It is so quiet here, it is making me a little scurred. I hope this isn't how it will be during the holidays.
I miss all of you guys when you aren't posting on here like crazy!.
Oh....and I got a.
FREE IPAD TODAY!!!!!!.
Haven't taken it out of the box yet, but I earned enough bonus points through my Scholastic book orders (You remember those from school?) and it was supposed to take about 1-2 months to process but it came today. It was like Christmas!.
Now if I could just learn how to make it work...
Oh no ang. sorry to make you worry. I'm OP just crazy with work and want to murder teen ds. just a normal day around here... LOL..
Kori ~ How sweet is that! You're a ROCKSTAR with Scholastic, too!!! Way to go!!!..
Hope to be back to say hi before 5 PM.... lets hope...
Hey lori... should go but you are here! hows nevan in school?..
I suppose murder is illegal there, too??? Rules, rules, and more rules!.
It must be the weather, cuz all three of my kids are being horses azz's!..
Oops.. lori must be on my mind. HI LAURI... you would be the mom of Nevan. told you I'm having a crazy day......
Murder is illegal in NY despite the NYC murder rate... yes. maybe it's a full moon...
Apparently he was good there...as soon as we got into the parking lot...he slugged me..
Hi lara, ang, sandy, andi and kori... love you guys!..
I suppose we have some stupid law against it, too. Perhaps I should check. lol..
Back to work with you my dear. There are MORE flippin' leaves calling my name...
Sandy ~ I hope you're burnin' up the calories; puttin; on the miles with all that house cleaning. Hopefully you can take a break later...
Almost done cleaning..
Love the IPAD..
Hi guys from work....
Lori just texted me that they just took stepdad back in for more surgery...please send some sham love her way!.
AFM, boss is being nutty but I expected it. The reason I stay though is b/c he just gave me a check for 100 bucks towards "gas" since I had to go off site and notarize stuff for him last week...makes it easier to put up with the crap..
Good for you ang. at least there is perk involved there somewhere. I live 5 min from my job and my hours are really flexible. that keeps me going when things get crazy.....
Much love to you lori.... keepin sdad in our prayers...
I stay cuz I got no where else to go. Just kidding!!!..
Adios amigas.... gotta leave work and head out to BF house. going to see the movie about facebook. hope it's good. love you guys and stay OP fo so'.......
Glad to hear you are still OP! Keeping it 5&1!!! Don't murder teen ds, we can't contact you if you are in jail..
Enjoy the leaves...at least then you know the holidays are coming and it is closer to Christmas vacation...oh wait...your kids are homeschooled, you don't rejoice about vacations like teachers do.
Thanks for the update on Lori. I was thinking about her all day..
WooHoo! for the 100 bucks but still...no one likes to put up with crap. We just want to get paid cuz we are awesome, not have to work for it, or put up with any crappy people...
Vacations keep me going and "mental health" days, those help too!..
Have a great weekend Andrea! We will miss you and hold down the fort while you are gone. Cuz we know, BF does not have internet..
I am totally procrastinating getting my kids grades done. I am baking some bomb azz peanut butter banana nut bread that smells so good but I am so proud that I did not lick the spoon when I was measuring out the PB. I love baking at this time of the year. Too bad it is like 90 something right now. But...it is the fall time and so I am baking for everyone else to enjoy!.
OK, back to work now...
Wow- could it be any more quiet around here today?.
Kori- so jealous of the iPad. I wnat one for my kiddos at work. There are so many apps for special needs kids. Have fun playing and learning about it..
Andrea- Have fun at movie tonight, let us know how it is. I haven;t been to the movie theater forever. I'm one to wait and rent, hate paying the money..
Lauri- Well at least Nevan was good at school. I always say I'd rather them be good out in public. Did you get all the leaves raked? That counts as exercise baby!.
Ang- It the perks that keeps me at my job too. If it was only based on the boss, I'd be outta there. How is everyone feeling now? Back to normal yet..
Sandy- Now that your finished with your house, you can jump on a plane and come clean mine-lol..
Lori- Mad love your way chica. If we can do anything, please let us know..
AFM- Went to gym after work, which was hard today. Not sure why but I was dragging today. Then went to PF Changs for dad's 65 Bday. There were really no good choices after looking at the nutritional info, but I order seasame chicken, which had chicken, brocolli and red peppers. I even ordered it with light sauce. Then it came out looking drenched in sauce.
So I think in the end it shouldn't have been too bad. And DH has lunch for tomorrow and she told us to keep the first one. Then Dsis had them bring out a HUGE piece of chocolate cake- which was big enough for all of us (7 total). I somehow got stuck cutting it and handing it out, but no BLT for me. Ok tired so hoping DH goes to bed so I can catch up on some DVR'd Shows...
Hi Everyone, nice to see everyone is doing well with the plan. Have a wonderful weeked..
Sorry I haven't been around..
You're all always in my thoughts..
Lara - WTG on standing up for yourself and your meal plan! can't have been hard, esp since DH initially spoke for you - WAY TO GO!!!.
Lori - (((HUGS))) with peaceand healing for you and SDad...
Lori ~ We totally understand and truly appreciate you keeping Ang posted, so she can let us know. I know I speak for everyone when I say we are like family...when you hurt, we hurt. Know that we love you; I'm praying for S-Dad (AND you). Take care of you, too..
Sandy - hope your cleaning went as expected - I'm about to start and have been putting off the unpacking / cleaning for about as long as I can.....
So much for me maybe being on more today - ended up taking our FIRST Washington bike ride and it was WONDERFUL! She was fussy from not being run and then again about hte cold and the hills but she did GREAT and hubs and I have a wonderful ride with lovely fall colors and fun curvy roads. LIFE IS GOOD!.
AND we managed to sandwich the ride between a late morning wake-up and a mid-afternoon nap.
Downside is I am on meal 3 for the day and have much catching up to do but will make it and enjoy every last minute of this day.
Off to grab my water and continue unpacking....
Later lovelies! Rest well - the weekend is calling..
LORI - BIG HUGS FOR YOU..
Andi - done with cleaning 5950 steps to clean my house. Lauri, thanks for the suggestion to check on how many steps...
I'm glad you had such a wonderful day, Andi. Sounds wonderful! Did you want me to send you a bag o leaves for your house? You mentioned you like Fall and I've got pleanty! This is DH's favorite season, too...
WAY TO GO SANDY! That is awesome!!!.
I burned 604 calories raking; mowing; raking some more. lol I was VERY happy with that...but hurtin' now...
I'm eatin' the tray I cooked mine in right now!..
Darryl was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit even though he knew that he was not speeding..
Just to be sure, Darryl went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed..
Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area once more, but the traffic camera again flashed..
Darryl tried a fourth and fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while he rolled past at a snail's pace..
Two weeks later, Darryl got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt..
You can't fix stupid...
I found this VERY interesting. I didn't believe it at first, but it's right on their web-site. Buyer beware, I guess:.
If you purchase something from Wal-Mart, Sears, etc. And you return the item with the receipt, they will give you your money back if you paid cash, or credit your account if paid by plastic..
Well, I purchased a GPS for my car:.
A Tom Tom XL.S from 'Best Buy'. They have a policy that it must be returned within 14 days for a refund!.
So after 4 days I returned it in the original box with all the items in the box, with paper work and cords all wrapped in the plastic. Just as I received it, including the receipt. I explained to the lady at the return desk I did not like the way it couldn't find store names. The lady at the refund desk said, there is a 15% restock fee, for items returned. I said no one told me that..
I asked how much would that be. She said it goes by the price of the item..
It will be $45 for you..
I said, all you're going to do is walk over and place it back on the shelf then charge me $45 of my money for restocking? She said that's the store policy..
I said if more people were aware of it they would not buy anything here! If I bought a $2000 computer or TV and returned it I would be charged $300 restock fee? She said yes. 15%..
I said OK, just give me my money minus the restock fee..
She said, since the item is over $200 dollars, she can't give me my money back!.
Corporate has to and they will mail you a check in 7 to ten days.! I said 'WHAT?'.
It's my money! I paid in cash!.
I want to buy a different brand...
Now I have to wait 7 to 10 days..
She said well, our policy is on the back of your receipt..
I said, do you read the front or back of your receipt? She said well, the front! I said so do I. I want to talk to the Manager!.
So the manager comes over, I explained everything to him, and he said, well, sir they should have told you about the policy when you got the item. I said, no one has ever told me about the check refund or restock fee when I bought items from computers to TVs from Best Buy. The only thing they ever discussed was the worthless extended warranty program..
He said, well, I can give you corporate phone number..
I called corporate. The guy said, well, I'm not supposed to do this but I can give you a 45 dollar gift card and you can use it at Best Buy..
I told him if I bought something and returned it, you would charge me a restock fee on the item and then send me a check for the remaining 3 dollars..
You can keep your gift card, I'm never shopping in Best Buy ever again, and if I'd been smart, I would have charged the whole thing on my credit card! Then I would have canceled the transaction..
I would have gotten all my money back including your stupid fees! He didn't say a word!.
I informed him that I was going to e-mail my friends and give them a heads-up on the store's policy, as they don't tell you about all the little caveats...
I'm off to fold laundry (the real thing)..
I will try to check back later..
Much love to you all!..
Lauri -way to go on all the exercise..
I think stretching might be in order for all those sore muscles. I find when I do extra stuff I have a tendency for muscle cramps and so for me it is really important to get extra water on those days...
Thanks Sandy ~ It's mostly my joints that ache...but thank you for reminding me about stretching. I don't even think about it unless I'm doing "traditional exercise", silly me..
I'm such a dip...especially when I'm overly tired..
That story was actually sent to me by my brother. I should have started the post with that info. Again...silly me..
I will see you in the a.m..
