That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Comment #1

Good Morning Everyone!.

From back reading:.

Heatherbee.

- YAY on the ice staking! Good for her and wow on being so supportive of her teammate!.

Sandi.

- Congrats on the over 10 lbs! Love the idea of using your belt as a progress meter!.

Katie.

- Glad you got a great nights sleep! Hope it helps you feel better. Congrats on the weight loss! Only 25lbs to go!!.

Charla.

- Sorry you have had such a rough week! YAY for Tanner and his meets...boo for losing his track shoes..

I had a pretty good weekend. I was super busy. It rained here a lot so yesterday I didnt get to take Bax for his walk, and no zumba this weekend. But I did a lot of housework and some repairs so I just was exhausted. I think that should count as exercise..

And the best news...This weekend the weight fell off like crazy! I thank the Spaghetti squash! It seemed to work well in cleaning out my system if you know what I mean...LOL. So I meet my goal and am only 1.4lbs away from a new decade! YAY!.

Well off to get ready for work. Have a great day girls!..

Comment #2

Morning,.

I got such a good nights sleep that my body clock went off at 3:30. OOPS..that is what happens when you go to bed at 9 pm. So I made it into work at 6 so that means I can leave at 3ish.I can take a nap for a couple of hours and go to my TSFL meeting tonight and my therapist at 8. Busy night...so I will need that nap..

The one side effect of the one med is ZERO appetite after taking it. I ate my dinner last night and had to eat one more meal. I was like..ugh..I have to eat again. I hope this is just a temporary side effect and not a perm one. It is WAY to easy to not enough calories because of no hunger...

Comment #3

Morning.

Katie.

! I had a med once that made me never hungry and you right, you have to be careful..

Xtina.

- Sorry you'be been so sick.

Hope you feel better...

Comment #4

Well I have to go to a meeting so I will see you girls later!..

Comment #5

Morning, tiffany and katie!.

Tiffany, thanks for starting the new thread..

Did you end up having to work this weekend? I hope not! and AWESOME about the loss!!! *happy dance*.

My weekend was fantastic. after the great snow of 2011 (ha, one inch), we had the most gorrrrrrgeous weather this weekend. ryan and I finally went on our first hike of the year. it was beautiful! my friend roanna had a birthday party on saturday night, and the theme was "Dead Comedians." I went as gilda radner and ryan was bob saget...because his career is dead. awww.....

Watched the super bowl (and commercials, of course). I was a green bay fan for a long time (just haven't watched pro football in years), so I was really happy to see them win it this year. and that darth vader VW commercial was so adorable...my favorite of the night. worst of the night...definitely Groupon. *** were they thinking?!..

Comment #6

Taylor - I missed the Groupon one! And I love groupon. I did not have to work this weekend much. I did have 2 tutoring sessions and such, but no real work..

My meeting is cancelled kinda...my boss is out with a back issue.

I feel so back for him...

Comment #7

Morning ladies!.

Had a nice weekend with BIL in Cincy, it snowed like crazy in Toledo while we were gone. Got back last night around 5:30, we were in bed by 9pm..

Tiffany- glad you were able to figure out the spag squash!.

Hi Katie!.

Hey Taylor! I love Groupon, but didn't see the commercial...

Comment #8

Morning Lovelies!!.

My weekend flew by in a flash, it felt like I didn't have one. Very busy with the cheer comp, soccer games, etc. Yesterday went to my niece's b'day party and then to a SB party in the 'hood. That was fun! Hubs is home from Vegas too. Yay!!.

Another busy week for me..off to go work out...

Comment #9

I didn't see the Groupon commercial either. The darth vader one was cute!..

Comment #10

From backreading-.

Heatherbee- Glad Lexi did well! I def want to check out the pics but FB is blocked at work so I will have to do it later..

Xtina and Sandi- congrats on your weight losses!..

Comment #11

Good Morning Ladies! I know I've been MIA for 2 weeks and sooo much has happened. I had a really bad flu, had some major changes at work, had 3 snow days and spent a lot of time digging out! I got so off track with Medifast and just being healthy in general, and it is frustrating. I'm back today though, and I've got to be REALLY strict with my diet and exercise. If I give myself an inch, I take a mile. I've got a plan laid out for myself and I am determined...

Comment #12

Hi Heather! I also liked the Darth Vader commercial. I thought the Audi one at the first commercial break was pretty sweet too. It was the one where they broke out of luxury prision..

Hi Kimberli! Welcome back!..

Comment #13

Tiffany: congrats on your big loss this weekend! You are doing great!.

Mer: How's the skating going?.

Taylor: Glad you had fun with your snow! We had about 20 inches and it was really pretty! Its made for messy streets and long commutes, but I liked it the few days that we were snowed in!..

Comment #14

Morning girls! Thanks for the well-wishes. I'm feeling slightly better or at least I thought Yesterday I started cramping again and today I'm not feeling well. Back at work because I can't be out sick anymore!.

Watched the game last night. Not a fan of NFL in general but watch it for the commercials and GLEE!! My fave commercial was the Elizabeth Hurley Groupon commercial and the NFL commercial that had clips from a bunch of shows having to do with football. I saw ALF and yelled at the TV "ALF!!!"..

Comment #15

Xtina: congrats on your big loss! Thriller on Glee was awesome no? I loved it!.

EDIT: Your bangs are super cute too!..

Comment #16

Hey.

Kimberli.

, welcome back! Glad you enjoyed your snow..

Xtina.

-.

Sorry you are still feeling bad and have to work. No fun...

Comment #17

Welcome back.

XTina.

And.

Kimberli.

..lots of sickness going around. Boooo!!!.

Glad you guys are better..

Mer.

..how's your voice? I didn't see the Volvo one. I missed a lot because the women were mostly out in the sun room and we had the game on but we were talking too much..

I haven't seen Glee yet. I recorded it..

Taylor.

..yay for your snow! It must have been fun for you guys..

Christina.

I did see the ad w/ all the old tv shows. that was cool. We were all yelling out the shows..

Kimberli.

..you guys really got walloped by the storm!.

Heatherbee.

..that is awesome about Lexi!.

Charla.

..hope you guys are feeling better!.

Congrats to all you 'big losers' for the week!!! That is fantastic!..

Comment #18

I had to work for a while. It is going to be super busy here for the next couple of weeks due to some deadlines..

Today I am in a much better place mentally. I hope that I stay there. I don't like that place where I feel hopeless. Normally I am upbeat and full of hope. Just hit a spot where it just wasn't happening..

I didn't slip up at all during the game last night. Granted I only stayed up until half time and than pretty much went to bed. The dog came to bed with me. HE is such a momma's boy...

Comment #19

Xtina.

, glad you're feeling a bit better! and way to go on the loss!!!!!.

Morning,.

Heather.

Kimberli.

Amy.

, and.

Mer.

Comment #20

I finally had a loss myself...3 pounds! i'm proud of myself for making it five whole days with no PB or DDP..

I did have a tsp of PB and a DDP first thing in the AM on saturday, though... but then went without DDP yesterday! that's truly a feat for me. and I think it helped kickstart the loss. I even passed up cake at roanna's party on saturday night...WHAT?! who am i!..

Comment #21

My kids are so grumpy this morning, cant wait to put them on the bus..

Comment #22

Http://homosrus.com/drawpig.html.

This is fun if you have a minute to play. I love personality tests..

Thanks again Tay and Kim. GLEE was the bombdotcom last night! I loved Thriller and there were a lot of good lines. I'm just glad it's back! Missed my Glee..

Comment #23

Stupid question (i'm back to logging my meals) for my veggie serving, do I need to enter it 3 times? that is to say...when I enter my veggie, is that nutrition info for just one of the three servings?..

Comment #24

I saw that they will have another new Glee on Tuesday night.

Im so excited..

Comment #25

I change the serving before adding. Like for Green Beans it says 0.5 cups. I change it to 1.5 cups. It does list only one serving each...

Comment #26

So sad I didnt get to see glee.

But by the time the game ended I was late for bed I really wanted to see it too, oh well!.

On a weird TMI note, I have the worse cottonmouth today! Seriously and it's all sweet tasting too. I hate that. Also seriously that spagh. squash really cleaned my system! I know what to eat now if I have one of those no going weeks!.

What I was doing wrong was that our walmart sells mutant spag. squash. It seriously was the size of a pumpkin. I saw some at another store yesterday and they were half the size of mine. So I wasn't cooking it long enough for it gianormous size! I have 8 cups of Spag. squash in my fringe right now.

Not sure if I can eat all of that before it goes bad..

Does anyone know if it freezes well?.

Heather.

- Sorry your weekend flew by so fast..

Amy.

- Sorry your kids are grumpy!..

Comment #27

Tiff: I bet you can watch Glee from last night on Hulu! I've never made spag. squash. Did you use a recipe for it?.

Heather: Yes, we got pounded by snow! 20 inches in about 20 hours! My school district hasn't taken a snow day since 1999 (because they pretty much refuse to cancel) and we had 3 in a row! I had to do some serious digging to get my car out!..

Comment #28

Kinda, did a google search for "how to cook spag squash" and there were pictures and everything. Then for mine I added some oregino and garlic to it after it was cooked, cooled and turned to spaghetti. I eat two searvings with one serving of tomatoes pureed with either grilled chicken diced up or browned ground turkey. Its very YUMM! I also add cream cheese to my tomatoes for my HF and it makes it all creamy and yummy..

Comment #29

This site had the best instructions and I found another that had pictures. But I pretty much followed this.

Spaghetti squash..

Comment #30

I like spaghetti squash with a little bit of salt and some margarine. Even though the texture is way off, for me it's been the closest thing to tasting like potatoes that I've found...

Comment #31

That sounds yum,.

Tiff.

! now I know what to have if I have a no-go week, too..

I've found that most all veggies freeze well as long as you they're in airtight containers. now I want spaghetti squash!!! by the way, i'm super proud of you for branching out on your veggies. why, just a few months ago, you proclaimed to only like green beans!..

Comment #32

Kimberli- skating is so-so. J and I have a date on Saturday at the skating rink and I convinced him to let me order skates! I'm a long shot to pass the skills test this month, but worst case scenario I'll practice and try out again in the fall..

Christina- I haven't watched Glee yet, I'm excited..

Hi Amy!.

Heather- it's 80% back! Still have some drainage which is making it a little off from normal, but at least I have a voice!.

Katie- Juneau, my older dog is such a daddy's boy. Faith the puppy is a mommy's girl, and I LOVE IT!.

Taylor- GO YOU on no PB or DDP!!.

QODs on the way!..

Comment #33

I know I am very excited myself. I called my mom and told her and when I go home in May I am making them spaghetti squash! YAY! I am also hoping that by May I will be at my goal weight! Wooo Hooo!..

Comment #34

Tiffany maybe you could freeze it in ziplock baggies in whatever individual serving sizes you use. It does sound yummers!!.

Ok..finally worked out. I did a new Firm work out Jiggle Free Buns..oh yea! I love the other Jiggle free series so I gave it a go and really liked it. It was tough!!.

Hubs and I are going on a lunch 'date' and getting Ri's party plans together..

Ri's team did a big pasta party on Friday night. She really had fun, they made posters and shakers for the fans too. Sat. morning was pretty icy but we got there ok and I helped w/ registration of the teams. It was a LONG day. Poor Iz ! She was a good sport though.

One really good girl is in the hospital w/ a pneumonia so they had to redo all of their stunts. Some of the seniors don't seem that into anymore either. The JV did really well though..

After Ri's competition, she was co-hosting a Vday party w/ some friends from school and I took Iz to her games. Her team is much better this time around. There was one super obnoxious dad up in the stands (we overlook the 'field'). He had this deep barky yell and he would bellow "WHOOP THERE IT IS" when they got a goal. Good times! She actually won her first game so she was pretty happy. Then we met my MIL, SIL and niece at Applebees for dinner..

It was really rainy/misty and foggy. I was worried about Ri and she got home past curfew (for her license, not mine). I was freaking a bit..

OH and her coach is scheduling a practice on Friday (her b'day and day of her party) but we don't have the time yet so I'm really stressing! Ri doesn't want me to email the coach about it. She thinks it will be after school, not at night. She better be right!.

I'm going to Ri's game tonight w/ my gf (also Ri's godmother) so that should be fun. I also have to take Iz back to the orthodontist because one of her spacers fell out over the wkend and she needs it back in before Thur. (her next appt)..

Better go shower. Sorry for my rambling.....

Comment #35

Kimberli.

- your welcome. I was also not scooping out the seeds and strands before baking so yeah I was all over the place wrong my first attempt!.

Xtina.

- On friday night I ran out of green beans. I had exactly one cup and one cup only. The spaghetti squash had just finished and cooled so I ate 1/2 cup with a wedge of LC for my fat. OMG it tasted so much like mp! So I completely agree. This maybe my fav new veggie!.

Mer.

- Way to go on ordering skates! So glad you get to have them! You are going to rock the roller derby thing!..

Comment #36

Heather.

- Thanks for the info! You always have the busiest weekends. Hope practice is right after school friday..

Heather.

Comment #39

Heather- YAY for Iz's team!.

It always makes it hard when you have to restage due to absences, I know my show choir had to do that a lot..

Tiff- I'm REALLY excited about having my own skates..

I get e-mails from this thing called Food Now for cooking, couple things caught my eye..

Calorie free chocolate:.

Http://shop.walkerart.org/?ck=PAYWKG...&CartID=140996.

(If the link doesn't work, it's a magnetic "chocolate bar". $18 seems pricy though).

Heart Shaped Melon baller (Heather- I could see you using this.

).

Http://www.csnstores.com/Paderno-Wor...0-WCS1316.html.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

The Audi breaking free from old luxury commercial.

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years?.

Yes, J wants to move away form Toledo anyway, this would be a way to get paid to relocate. I really living this close to my family, but could make sure the relocation wasn't too far away. (The previous person in the position is now in Cincy, 3 hours away from us but 2 from my parents)..

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1?.

Red raspberries are my fave but they are expensive. So I pick apples because they are easy. Strawberries are yummier, but they are a lot more work..

I try to go through it at least once a month..

Comment #40

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

VW little darth vader!.

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years? (someone may or may not have an interview for such a job).

Depends. am I signing a contract saying I will not quit and will commit to relocating? if not, I probably would. anything could happen/change, so i'd be open to it. I am not, however, open to relocating to locations I consider "undesirable" for whatever reason..

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1 what one would it be (for those not on the 5-1, what's your fave fruit)?.

Pineapple! although 'nanas are what I eat most of. I used to eat one every day before MF!.

4. How often do you go through your spam folder on your e-mail? Or do you just let it delete automatically without checking?.

I never check it. maybe I have too much trust in gmail....

5. If you had to join the witness protection program and got to pick your new name what would it be?.

Ingrid isaacs. maybe not subtle enough for the WPP... love this question!.

Bonus- L&G?.

Morningstar burgs and spinach, maybe tomaters...

Comment #41

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

I liked the Groupon and NFL commercials I mentioned earlier..

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years? (someone may or may not have an interview for such a job ).

Yes only if the relocation would be in a place that was safe though for my family. For example, I would not relocate to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kuwait or Detroit..

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1 what one would it be (for those not on the 5-1, what's your fave fruit)?.

I would probably pick strawberries or mango. Its strawberry season now for Floridaalways around my birthday..

4. How often do you go through your spam folder on your e-mail? Or do you just let it delete automatically without checking?.

I check it daily because I sometimes get important stuff sent to my spam because the setting is so high. So I check it pretty often..

5. If you had to join the witness protection program and got to pick your new name what would it be?.

Michelle Cavanaugh. I like both of these names..

Bonus- L&G?.

Not sure. Things arent sitting well right now so probably something bland or soft to digest i.e. cooked canned green beans and a chicken breast..

Im trying to make myself go running tonight because I missed all last week. Just hoping Ill make it in one piece...

Comment #42

Ok, sorry Ladies I had to watch Glee before I head to work and I loved it, I would say it's the best episode so far..

My weekend was good, pretty uneventful. My Daughter had a friend stay the weekend with us (her parents went to Portland) so we really just hung out at home, they played outside alot, yesterday I ran to Costco but thats about it..

Ugggg it's snowing.

I knew it was coming but Im still not to happy about it..

Comment #43

Christina just take it easy, your body is still recovering from being sick, dont over do it..

Comment #44

The Darth Vader and the VW commercial. That was great with the kid..

No clue.

I am going to Ruby Tuesday's with TSFL group. So most likely a salad, and some sort of protein. Not sure what yet.....

Comment #45

I know you're right Amy. I'm going to just see what I can do tonight. If it's miserable, I'll probably just do some walking and take it slow this week...

Comment #46

All this talk about spam email got me thinking, so I checked mine just now... Y'ALL! i've been missing out on FREE hydrocodone and rolex watches!!!!!!!! *smacks forehead*..

Comment #47

That eminem commercial was pretty cool, though... I do admit. take 'er easy on the exercise, lady! also, love your new ticker...

Comment #48

I gotta head out, catch you all later this afternoon. Have a great day..

Comment #49

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

I kind of half watched the super bowl, and no commericals are really sticking out to me right now.... I'll get back to you on that one!.

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years? (someone may or may not have an interview for such a job).

Hmm, I have relocated a lot for work in the past 3 years and now I finally feel settled. I guess it really depends on where I was relocating and if the price was right.

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1 what one would it be (for those not on the 5-1, what's your fave fruit)?.

Strawberries..

4. How often do you go through your spam folder on your e-mail? Or do you just let it delete automatically without checking?.

Kind of sporadically, here and there..

5. If you had to join the witness protection program and got to pick your new name what would it be?.

I would probably pick something simple and phonetic. My last name Kearney (pronounced Carney) is always said wrong. I think I pick Elle O'Riley. Keep it Irish!..

Comment #50

Xtina: I agree, take it easy with exercise! If it is feeling like too much, maybe scale it back to one of the earlier weeks! I also LOL at your Detroit comment..

Taylor: haha, better get those drugs and watches while you can girl!.

Bye Amy!..

Comment #51

Tay, Xtina, and Kimberli- I like your WP names.

I'm trying to decide how to exercise tonight. I have narrowed it down to Turbokick, TurboJam, or Just Dance. I'm leaning towards the last two because I can do them in my living room. I'd have to go to the gym for TK, but would be with my friend. I'm just not feeling it, I still have a lot of phlegm and I want to be able to get rid of it if needed in the privacy of my own home. AND I'm feeling too lazy to go to the gym..

Katie- that's really cool that your TSFL group goes out to eat! My coach lives in Oregon..

Tay- lol on your spam.

BYE AMY!..

Thanks! It is a fun question!!..

Comment #53

Amy.

, have fun braving the snooow!.

Merz.

, I love the WPP question, too!.

It feels like it should be 3pm, and it's not even 1pm. yikes!.

So here's an interesting story from work... my boss just let us all know that she's 4 months pregnant! it's a pretty small staff (9 total), and she's the director of the team I work on (there are 3 of us). she told us it's something she's always wanted, and so she just bit the bullet and she's doin' it! she has a strong maternal streak, so i'm not all that surprised. she's single, and she just turned 40, and she didn't want to wait any more..

What are your thoughts? if you didn't have a partner, and you wanted children, would you move forward with it? if so, would you do adoption, surrogate, or get a donor and inseminate yoself? look at me, throwing in another QOD.....

Comment #54

Tay- More power to your boss. It's not something I think I would decide to do myself, but I think that if someone wants to be a mom that badly and has the time and money to do it, that's great. It's hard for me to put myself in that situation because I really don't want kids. But I think if I was in that position, I'd look to adopt. There are a lot of kids that need homes, but I know that artificial insemenation is WAY cheaper...

Comment #55

I see zero issues with it, especially since she is established in her career and is self supporting..

Well I won't be going to my TSFL meeting..I have a conference call with the west coast..

I LOVE my job..

I LOVE my job..

I LOVE my job..

I LOVE my job..

I LOVE my job...

Comment #56

Hello there! My food hasn't arrived yet, so I'm still not "official" yet. And FedEx hasn't updated the shipping status since 2/2. I have enough meals to start as my mom gave me some of her stuff, so I may start tomorrow. I just hope my order gets here soon..

Sounds like you're all doing well on MF, that's exiciting to me!..

Afternoon all!.

Geeze I'm busy today (actually till Wed night, so I will probably be on PM, but maybe not lol. I need to make a new competition dress for the diva. Hers got to small! I was going to add som material to the crotch to extend the life, but noticed there is a run in the side. Sigh. We love it, and she wants another just like it lol. I'm gonna see if I can find the same color, but go with a more sophisticated design (cross your fingers cause I can't sew lol, I just kinda wing it!), but keep the flow and the flowers.



Thanks everyone for the well wishes and congrats:-).

Tiffany~ Way to go on the ticker! I'm glad you veggie-branched, I'm trying to myself. Convinced it's a brain thing, and not actually a tastebud thing:-).

Taylor~ Love the costumes! I used to have naughty dreams about Bob, but her never twittered me back, and thatnk goodness I got over it, because I could never figure out where it was coming from lol..

Heather~ Yea for Iz!.

I'll do QOD later if I can, but here is how I felt about the Superbowl/Commercials:.

I want the time back lol. There were a couple of good commercials. The kid and I LOVED the Bridgestone beaver one lol. Some of the Pepsi ones made me laugh. Coke needs to FIRE their entire advertising and start over BLAH. Bud should go back to the frogs.

No. FAIL..

Comment #60

Hey Heather! I also agree the Coke commercial was a complete waste of money and man power. I missed the Tibet groupon on commerical so I'm not sure...I'll have to look it up later. I liked the Brazillian one though...

Comment #61

I'm gonna half to check the Brazillian one out, did it have to do with waxing? :-)..

Comment #62

I am feeling it tonight.

Taylor.

! They use the Trans-firmer, which I already own and it's two steps (6 and 8 inch) so you use them stacked and side by side and hand weights. Lots of squats and lunges too...

Comment #63

Shipment confirmed and I start tomorrow! I read on another string about using chicken broth instead of water for soups. Do I substitute all of the water for broth?.

Thanks in advance!..

Comment #64

Tay: Congrats on your loss.

I really want to try spaghetti squash now....

Hope everyone's week is going well so far, I'm super busy. Got the highest grade in the class on my native american religious traditions quiz, got two decent electromagetism homeworks back (did something really dumb on one of them and lost 5 points out of 40... oops), and I have an E&M test on Wednesday. You all are probably getting up for Tuesday soon... I'm just going to bed. Long night of E&M homework.

Overall a good semester so far, but super busy..

Official weigh-in in the morning, and I'm going to be over 10 pounds gone.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

I didn't watch the super bowl and I don't watch television (no time for it, so I abstain from it so I don't get hooked on shows). As such... no favorite commercial..

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years? (someone may or may not have an interview for such a job).

Yes, depending on where the relocation is. I want to experience different parts of the country. I have a lot going for me here, but I know I won't be here forever..

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1 what one would it be (for those not on the 5-1, what's your fave fruit)?.

Grapes..

4. How often do you go through your spam folder on your e-mail? Or do you just let it delete automatically without checking?.

About once a month..

5. If you had to join the witness protection program and got to pick your new name what would it be?.

Henrietta.

Bonus- L&G? - super yummy egg beater scramble with some veggie sausage patty chopped up in it, cheddar cheese, tomato, and my new love sauteed spinach.

If you didn't have a partner, and you wanted children, would you move forward with it? if so, would you do adoption, surrogate, or get a donor and inseminate yourself?.

This is irrelevant for me as I do not want children, however, I think that if I did want children in that situation, I would likely try to find a male friend to inseminate me, and do it the old fashioned way.

Good night and sweet dreams, or good morning and have a lovely day, whichever applies to you!..

Comment #65

Morning ladies!!.

Sorry I didn't get back to you last week, and thank you for the kind words.

A "Rooster's Girl" is like a "Hooter's Girl" but with more clothes. It's a restaurant similar in theme, but no booty shorts lol!.

How is everyone?..

Comment #66

Morning ladies!.

Ended up working out with Just Dance last night because my friend had to skip TurboKick..

Stephanie- To start out, I would just use water on your soups. Some people use chicken broth because it makes it tastier to them. My personal opinion is that it is best to follow the directions on the packet the first time you eat something. Then you can decide if you want to modify it..

Sandi- congrats on your quiz!.

Hi Mekaela!..

Comment #67

Sandi - Congrats on your quiz that is great!.

Stephanie - I use just water and soak it either all night or most of the day. The Chicken and Wild Rice I soak longer so that rice isn't crunchy..

Today is a non-hungry day unlike yesterday where I wanted to eat. Those hungry days takes SO much discipline. Those are the days that makes doing Medifast hard because I am truly hungry. Today is not a hungry day which is strange how it can vary from day-to-day. I am wearing another size 10 and loving it. I know that another 10 lbs and these 10's will no longer fit so I am wearing them while I can..

What I don't understand is how come when we are bigger the clothing sizes last 20-25 lbs, but when we are smaller, we lose 5 or 6 lbs and drop a size? Does the clothing manufactuer's put more stretch in the bigger clothes so we are in sheer denial about our real size..

Also for some reason all my shoes are getting big on me....

Comment #68

Stephanie, I couldn't agree with the other girls more, just do water at first! Fix it exactly as written, and then go from there. For me it works best if I put the soup in with boiling water in the container, stir, and then cover for a few mins..

Katie, you will lose weight in your feet too! I went from an 8.5 to a size 8!..

Comment #69

Morning Ladies! We got a couple more inches of snow last night and now we have FRIGID temps! Chilllly! Luckily my office is nice and toasty and I have my electric tea kettle at work so I can make tea and warm drinks like hot chocolate and capp today!.

I had my Spanish class last night and it is going really well. I used a Groupon for the first 4 lessons and I think I am going to continue with 6 more lessons after this. I feel like some gaps are beginning to close! The only problem with the class is the time. It starts at 830 and ends just after 10. I don't get home til about 1030 and my mind is just kind of racing! I talked with the other girls in my class and we are hoping to change the time..

Tomorrow night is supposed to be the first night of running club. It is also supposed to be about 2 degrees outside tomorrow night, so I am really hoping they cancel. I have been doing some running at the gym, but I'm not really into torturing myself in the artic air!.

Hey Mekaela! Sorry to hear about you and Shawn but I am excited that there is a new guy around! You look fab by the way! How is Atkins going?.

Hey Mer, Stephanie, and Katie!..

Comment #70

Hello lovey doveys!.

Just a drive-by, I am leaving for kickboxing in a bit..

I have just been busy and also not feeling well lately. Remember the 15 tubes of blood I had taken? Well, the GI doc called and my liver numbers were more than twice what they should be!! So now I can freak about that. This has never happened. I have to get more bloodwork and an ultrasound. The good news is that on the CAT scan I got last time I was in the hospital (just before Christmas) showed a totally normal liver. I did a little research and anything from antibiotics to Crohn's or colitis or celiac could cause it..

I'll try to pop on this afternoon. I miss my PUGs!!xoxoxo..

Comment #71

Hi Sandi!.

As for clothes, in my opinon, when you are heavier that 10lbs comes from so many places on your body you hardly notice it. But when you lose 10lbs on a smaller body, it's easier to notice and it's a larger % of you that you lost. I know it took me losing 40lbs before I dropped my first size, but I started at 325..

Hey Kimberli! I LOVE Groupon! I wish I could find one for Spanish classes around here!.

Hi Ashlee and Amy!.

Hey Dawn! Sorry you haven't been feeling so great and need more blood work...

Comment #72

If it is Celiacs disease it is so controllable by diet. I have it and really suffered with it for years..

When I would eat wheat it was like my intestines slowed down food processing to a crawl...

Comment #73

Grr. I am getting REALLY frustrated with LB's mom. 2 weeks ago on 1/26 we planned on getting together on 2/1. She did warn me that LB's grandpa wasn't doing so well and he may go out of town so we might need to reschedule. I didn't hear anything from her so I texted her on 2/1 to confirm. LB had left for Washington DC early on 1/31- she didn't think to let me know? Grr..

So I texted her over the weekend to see if we could get together with LB tomorrow on 2/9. J's schedule is REALLY busy- Class M&Th, and he needs to do a group project so he has lots of meetings. Our schedule generally fills up really fast, but we kept Weds open just in case (didn't want to ask about Weds then renig). So she didn't respond in 40 hours to I texted her again today to see if tomorrow would work and if not to please let us know. It won't (gee, thanks for letting me know that on Sunday when I asked). So I asked when WOULD work, and we can't do M&Ths and that J is really busy.

I instantly texted her back that I have an interview.

On Friday and won't be available until after 6pm, would that be too late? No response..

The crazy thing is I JUST got a call from Big Brother/Big Sisters to see how the match was going (it's normal, they try to call once every couple of months). I told her I'd call her on my lunch. I can't believe how hard it is for a mom to schedule 2 hours every other week for her only child to go on a "play date"...

Comment #74

Aw,.

Mer.

, that's frustrating about LB! funny that BBBS.

Just.

Called... maybe they'll have some ideas!.

Heather.

, I want to trans-firm my buns! I need to look into this..

Stephanie.

, yay for shipment!!!.

Morning,.

Sandi, ash, dawn, amy, kimberli, and mekkie!..

Comment #75

Merz that stinks, sounds like the Mom likes it when it's convenient for her.

Hi Taylor..

Comment #76

Morning Vixens!.

Still running, but wanted to check in:-).

Hey Merz, What ever happened with the roomie & Club boy? (I have NOTHING intersting in my life....)..

Comment #77

Yay I'm down over 10 pounds officially as of this morning.

Dawn I hope you find out what's going on soon and that you're ok....

Busy day today, time to get ready for school..

Comment #78

Hey Taylor!.

I'm hoping that BBBS will, I'm sure they've dealt with this before. It's just sad because it's NOT LB's fault..

LOL Heatherbee- Roomie and Club boy will celebrate their two week anniversary on Friday (they even made it Facebook official after knowing each other for 6 days). She posted a pic of the two of them with the caption "we're SO happy" this weekend. I've barely seen her, I was gone over the weekend (she puppy-sat for us), and then she has spent the last two nights at his place..

YAY Sandi!..

Comment #79

Yay for all the losses I'm seeing!!!.

MerIt just seems like this match has been a little rough since the beginning, no? I think talking to BBBS is a great idea..

Kickboxing kicked my booty. They switched up the boxing schedule, so I am now going to do kickboxing twice a week. The instructor is awesome. It was kind of a circuit type workout. I suck at the kicking!! Lifting my leg so high over and over was a killer on the abs, and I have a hard time because my middle is chubby. So my knee/thigh kinda goes into my tummy...does that make sense? And guess what I did for the first time ever?....

I bloodied my knuckles all up.

Yep, I'm a bad*ss..

Katie-Thanks for the encouragement! My body just seems to be an enigma wrapped in a puzzle, inside a labyrinth these days. I really hope we figure it out soon. I follow a Primal diet, so I don't eat grains or any sugar other than a small amount of honey...

Comment #80

Dawn- This match, while a thousands times better than our first match, has not gone as well as I would hope. I feel like a bad person because I am not enjoying being a Big Sister and J doesn't like being a Big Brother. It's not that we don't like kids, we just don't feel a connection to LB. That whole pouting for an hour because he thought that we were getting him a computer for Christmas was kind of the last straw..

That's great you are boxing again- bloody knuckles? Holy crap woman!..

Comment #81

MerI really really hope it works out with this LB or you get one a little more compatible. I know that you guys don't hate kids! It has such a potential for being a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Sending good vibes your way! That whole pouting thing...ugh....I would have tore Jackson a new a-hole for that ish. Doesn't sound like his mom even noticed or cared..

About boxing, I just told her my issues: joint problems (fine right now, but still) and abdomen is sensitive so no sparring. She was like, "It's okay, I'm not gonna hit you!" She pushed me too. I like that. I feel so out of shape, with all this medical crap, I have gotten so out of shape. But every journey begins with that first step, right? and you just keep taking one after the other, it doesn't matter how, just do it and you'll get there..

Okay that's my motivational speech for the day, LOL!!..

Comment #82

*FROM BACKREADING*.

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? If you didn't watch it, what is your fave commercial?.

I like a very odd one it's a Geico commercial where viewers made their own commercial using a website & the guy looks like Albert Einstein & he suddenly sings "I'm not your daddy, I'm your grandpaaaa" SEXY GRANDPA TIME! lol.

2. Would you take a job knowing you would have to relocate in the next 3-4 years? (someone may or may not have an interview for such a job.

).

Hellllllllllllllllz yeah!.

3. If you could pick ONE fruit to count as a veggie on the 5-1 what one would it be (for those not on the 5-1, what's your fave fruit)?.

Bananas!!!!!!!.

4. How often do you go through your spam folder on your e-mail? Or do you just let it delete automatically without checking?.

I have a spam folder??? LOL I guess I let it delete on it's own.

5. If you had to join the witness protection program and got to pick your new name what would it be?.

Jacinda Tidaro I think it's a unique first name & the last name is the way my mother's maiden name was spelled in Italy before ancestors had it changed when they came to America.

Bonus- L&G?.

Chick boob & ensalada!!..

Comment #83

OMG Ash! Jackson and I were laughing soooo hard at that commercial!.

My favorite though, was the Eminem "Shut Up and Drink It" ad. Or the insect (beetle I think) that was racing around, I think it was a VW commercial...

Comment #84

So I've decided that from now on when the dingledork VP of Finance calls me on my lunch I will chew while on the phone. Our entire organization eats lunch at 12:30 every day. Yes, he is an hour behind us in TX, but can he not look at a clock? It worked, too, he asked if he should call back later..

Dawn- you are so right! You'll never get good at something unless you start at the bottom!.

That's how I feel with skating, I just need practice! And I just found out that the place where tryouts are has skates available for rent. They aren't speed skates, but will do the trick. I'll just need to have my own skates if I make it..

YAY!.

Hey Ashlee!..

Comment #85

Just thought I would message real quick before I head to work, My Daughter came home with me after work yesterday complaining of a headache and her back/stomach hurting, she hasn't had a fever or anything. This morning she was also complaining about not feeling well so I let her stay home this morning and I will take her with me when I go to work and she can finish the day at school. Im not really sure whats going on with her, but hopefully it will get better, she seems fine now and I gave her some Ibuprofen to help her back ache.

Hope you all have a good day I better get going..

Comment #86

AmyPoor baby, does she usually have back aches? It struck me as a weird thing for a kid to have. Good luck!..
