That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
Good morning all!.
In case you missed it...our BEAUTIFUL Andi was thoughtful enough to leave us the following message yesterday:.
"I'm heading upstairs to get the last of my take-home work done before my Dolly shift tomorrow. 9-5.
Makes me giggle. was supposed to be Princess (7a-3p) but the Dolly-shifter asked me to switch and I love sleeping in so I said YES of course!.
And remember to fall back......
Fall back to Swagger.
Fall back to Sexy.
Fall back to Sassy.
Fall back for OP and all the water you can drink!.
Fall back for the Super Sexy Swaggerin' Shamrocks!"..
If you think it's 8:00 and you have an appt. at 9:00 and you're thinkin' you have plenty of time...think again! You're LATE!..
Just a reminder for those participating in the Challenge: Please be sure to post your stats by the end of today, if you haven't already...
This is so sweet AND I LOVE this guy...don't tell my DH. lol.
Ok, one last one...I think he has some love issues in his past:.
Good morning Sexy Shams! Is it 5, is it 6? DST throws me off!.
I'm going to see what I miss last night. Today busy again...it's my neices' 1 year birthday party...
Morning Lauri and Ang..
OK Lauri= sorry to say that Conan just doesn't do it for me. Now if that second guy was in the Conan video I would agree that it was HOT..
Ang- DST always screws me up too. I hate it getting darker even earlier, esp with my seasonal effetive disorder (that's at least what I diagnosed myself with.).
AFM- Head is all stopped up. Need to go read last night- even though I was here pretty late, sounds like some may have stopped in. Then I'm heading over to the challenge board. On the agenda for today is youngest dd play date at friends house, oldest dd to bday party and mom and I shopping while they are there. Trying to get some Christmas shopping done while I can..
Have a great OP day!..
I only said the Conan video was hot so you guys would look. I thought it was funny mockery of the bikini babes washing the car. But...we all know my humor is a bit warped..
Happy Birthday to Ang's niece. I was just about to tell you the "real" time, but realized I don't know the time zone diff. in your area. I believe it is 7:43 there now. Whatever time your clock says, move it back one hour. I can ONLY remember by saying in my head: Spring Forward; Fall Back. Again...I'm a dork...
Miss Lara ~ YOU DID IT!!! I knew you could...but I didn't expect it so quickly. That is SO awesome!!! You'll get your Swagger back in no time...
Good morning all... I am alive and kickin....sorry to have been mia for so long. friday night with BF, sat with kids (soccer and shopping). my landlord has been around and yestrday we raked leaves for hours.....
Help... I need cliff notes stat! whole day of soccer an hour away from home coming up today!.
Love and miss you guys!..
Lauri- I never even thought of the bikini girls when I watched that- does make it a lot more funny. Can you tell I don't watch much TV, just a couple shows I DVR, so no commercials either. Thanks for the kuddos on my WI- I am so happy today. Just hoping it keeps going for a couple more weeks..
Andi- Good Luck with soccer today. We had a scoreless game yesterday against the older girls team, so I thought that was pretty good that we hung with them. DD had an awesome save against a HUGE girl named Toast! Cliff notes I'll try- Lauri will probably be able to add to this list; Ang didn't die or kill her MIL shopping yesterday for Hannakah gifts; Lori made a cameo apperance yesterday- she's still dealing with sdad in the hospital. They had to take defib out; Barb's SIL passed away so she will be at visitation today; Barb and her hubbie have several MD appt tomorrow (one for her knee- hoping for a shot to help it feel better); Andi is working the Dolly shift (9-5) so that she can sleep in; Sandy went shopping and got some new golf clothes a size smaller; Darlene's computer is still messed up- Timmy is doing ok waiting back test results- her DD and SIL are off to Vegas for a business meeting; Kori has been an exercise fool and keeping up with newphews/ nieces and headed to a hockey game last night; Lauri has kept us going, she cleaned out gutters yesterday; I had a terrible time with hunger and the pantry calling my name yesterday, but I did not succumb, I stayed OP and am back under goal_ YEAH! I think that does it...
Wow.. lara, you rock. thanks so much. really feel out of touch when I dont know whats going on. congrats on that soccer game yesterday. we are hoping for two wins today! ill be back tonight to say hi to everybody.....
Tucson does not do day light savings so no changing clocks here..
Lara - You ROCKSTAR! Great job. You are doing this and showing a good example..
Lauri - thanks for starting us and all the videos..
Ang - hope you enjoy the birthday party and are not toooooo busy..
Oh, Lara - good luck on shopping and what a great summary..
Andrea - miss you to. Have a fun day..
Hope every one posts today so I can run the spreadsheet tonight. Monday's are my busy day so if I can do the analysis tonight that would help me. Thanks..
OK, off to get ready for my brunch. I am making a main dish that I can eat. No champagne for me...
Lori - hugs your way. I hope you are doing OK. Miss you..
Hi to all Shammies when you show up. I think it is lazy butt day...
I wasn't able to use that link for the challenge board. Will go search for it after this. Of course it always helps if we post that link every Sun. if possible. I had a big weight loss so that's always good. Won't be around today as we leave in a few hours for the funeral home.
Enjoy this beautiful Sunday...
Lara - congrats on the loss!.
Barb - you too. and have the best day you can at this sad time..
Andi - travel safely and I hope the kids play well.
Sandy - Have a great day and OP!!! you have a plan and that will save you!.
Ang - Hope you have a great day planned!.
Lori - how are you my riend?.
Lauri - thanks for the great start!.
AFM - will have a super day - take-home work almost done -just need to write 3 more questions for my jeopardy game and my quick 8 hour shift will fly by. then home to snuggle with hubbie before the madness begins next week - 4 skills day sessions in 3 days WITH a holiday and I'm getting Mirena placed on the holiday OUCH! At least I have my coconut cocoa tea and my warm hubbie..
OH - BTW - are you drinking your water? I've been up about 30 minutes and have downed 32 oz already.
Well on the way.......
Looks like everybody logged off..
I am going to try to get some sleep..
Sand ~ Thank you again for starting the challenge. Looks like EVERYONE is having beyond amazing results. YEAH! It must have been just what I needed..
Andrea ~ Welcome home!!! (if even for a moment)..
Lori ~ I hope you are hanging in there..
Ang ~ Have a GREAT day!.
Barb ~ WAY TO GO on the loss! I hope you have a safe trip...I know it won't be the best of times, but I do hope you enjoy the visit with your bros..
Erin ~ Still lookin' for ya. I hope all is well..
Darlene ~ I hope "limpy" (computer) can get you through another day, before it becomes a yard ornament or coaster..
Andi ~ Sorry you have to work today. Oh! and yes, on the water..
I hope I didn't miss anyone...I tired...
Lauri- Hope you are getting some sleep. I thought I had done ok on the cliff notes- just afraid I'd forget someone as I usually do..
Andi- WTG on the water so far, keep your bottle handy at skills..
Sandy- What's on the menu for brunch? Mom bailed on the shopping and instead is going somewhere with sis. See where I rank. So now I'll be stuck at the party with all the soccer parents. Will take my Medifast food with me as they are having Hamburger/hot dogs with all the sides I'm sure..
Barb- Be safe and more Hugs your way. WTG on your weight loss this week. Hope your going today with a plan as funeral homes usually have lots of goodies lying around...
Quick check in. I have to get to church. Will check back in..
Thanks Lara!! what a great re-cap..I vote you our historian of the Day. It reads like a fun George Carlin or Dennis Miller rant when you take it fast.
I haven't made it through the rest of the posts yet, but had to chime in with thanks for this..
Can I also put a big woop woop..raise the roof for everyones great wt loss week? Lauri***way to kick that ticker.
Off to read more..
Darlene ~ I hope "limpy" (computer) can get you through another day, before it becomes a yard ornament or coaster..
Baahhhhha maybe I can dress it up for the different holidays..it is stuck in the lawn now as the Thanksgiving Turkey..
Wow three posts in a row without being kicked off or "webpage cannot be displayed" or endless circling working icon...I am off to buy a lottery ticket for sure. Make sure everyone changes their ticker to match the great week of lbs lost!.

Observations on Growing Older.
~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them.
...but your grandchildren are perfect!.
~Going out is good..
Coming home is better!.
~When people say you look "Great"....
They add "for your age!".
~When you needed the discount you paid full price..
Now you get discounts on everything ...
Movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use them..
~You forget names ... but it's OK.
Because other people forgot.
They even knew you!!!.
~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose.
Is now 15 and you have a better chance.
Of losing your keys than the 15 pounds..
~You realize you're never going.
To be really good at anything .... especially golf..
~Your husband is counting on you.
To remember things you don't remember..
~The things you used to care to do,.
You no longer care to do,.
But you really do care that you.
Don't care to do them anymore..
~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair.
With the TV blaring than he does in bed..
It's called his "pre-sleep"..
~Remember when your mother said.
"Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"?.
Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!.
~You used to say,.
"I hope my kids GET married ...
Now, "I hope they STAY married!".
~You miss the days when everything worked.
With just an "ON" and "OFF" switch...
~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ....
Were unheard of, and a mouse was something.
That made you climb on a table..
~You used to use more 4 letter words ....
~Now that you can afford.
Expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere..
~Your husband has a night out with the guys.
But he's home by 9:00 P.M...next week it will be 8:30 P.M..
~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it..
~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!.
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots..
~Now that your husband has retired ....
You'd give anything if he'd find a job!.
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet .....
2 of which you will never wear..
~~~~But old is good in some things:.
And best of all OLD FRIENDS!!..
Phew! Lara you are one busy lady today! hope you get some Christmas shopping done today! Oh, and you are rockin' this challenge girl!..
Yay! Andrea is back! Hope you have a great day with soccer...
Happy Sunday to everyone!.
Barb thanks for those words of wisdom! I guess what I should add is...you know your getting old when you read that and get a kick out of it!.
I'm on my third day (back again ON) and ready to roll! It's funny because I run hot all the time and the past two days I've been cold and I'm saying to myself "what??" then I remembered it's the Medifast!.
Hope everyone enjoys their day!.
Boo for no champagne.
But great job rockin it out as the head of our challenge. Thank you for all that you are doing Sandi!..
Barb - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family today. Way to rock the OP weight loss this week! I think our ninja is back and kickin' azz fo' sho'!!!..
Hey Renee I'm always cold too. Yeah for rollin on day 3!..
Hi Renee- I went on a weight loss program 20 some years ago and was cold but I am not this time. Not sure what is different. But I know what you mean..
Barb - Hugs for you today. Sorry link did not work. I will try to post link on Sundays for the challenge. Thanks to my fellow shammies for covering my backside..
Brunch turned out great. Nice conversation. I served some Mexican pastries with fresh fruit. Coffee, Bloody Marys, champagne. Then huevos rancheros with tortillas. I had the eggs with no avocado and sparkling water.
I do not think I had entertained since starting Medifast so I am learning..
OK, off to check the challenge board and update the spreadsheet. I can't wait to see some more results...
WOW! What a great first week. I have almost all the inputs. Thanks everyone. I will post results as soon as I can..
I am so impressed...
Barb - walking definitely counts on your 25 mile challenge. Maybe if you monitor this week you can estimate for the week we just finished. We will give you credit. I know you did a lot of walking the day you went to the grocery store...
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday..
I posted the wrong weight on MyPlan. I was checking out BMI and hit return at the wrong time. I entered the correct weight for today even though Wednesday is my weigh in day. Now my graph is all screwed up. Do any of you know a way of deleting the wrong post?..
Sandy- sorry no help here. thank you again for this challenge. I think we al needed it..
Quiet here today- where is everone- hoping your all op..
I cooked up two heads of cauli, prepared for pizza crust and froze for easy access. Made some tonight for dinner- yummy. even family thought it was good. I made them one too..
Ok tired so likely won't be back until the morning...
Lara - have a good night and congratulations on a great week. You did great...
Just a quick check-in. need to get some stuff done but thinking of you and will see you all in the AM. MWAH!..
Just wanted to check in real quick. My sister got us tickets to see Celtic Thunder. I will post some info on them tomorrow. Total cuties. We have been to see them several times. My sister won them on a fluke yesterday responding to a Facebook email blast thing.
See you in the AM..
Mucho love hookahs...
Hay Kori! did you see them at the Grove?? My Timbo really wanted to see them, but no extra $$. Amazing coincidence=) Tonight our family just won tix to KOST 103.5 private holiday party at Disney for next week. We have passes, but this is a special night and two more kids get to come with us. Sunday nights at Spagettini, is 1/2 price dinner night. It was hosted by 103.5 fm. My Timmy was the perfect over the top winner with squeals, OMG's,face holding joy when he learned he won.
I had the most amazing salad! Spinach leaves, grilled shrimp, crab meat, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, mango..just a bit. dressing on the side. I hope I was close to L&G. It was great. I also drank everyones water at the table + some more..
See you all in the morning, So cal time of course..
Darlene- we did see them at the Grove. I love those guys! The concert was awesome! It was the third time we had seen em and they were better every time..
Congrats on winning the tickets. How awesome is that? WTG drinking all the water. Salad sounds great..
Talk to you in the morning. I am freaking tired..
