Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Comment #1

Helloooo....where is everybody?.

For once I can say I'm glad it's Monday. This last week and weekend were just crazy busy. I'm so glad they are over..

I'm almost done my decorating..I'd say 95%. Iz had an Irish Dance comp on Saturday and it was a LONG day...7:30 to about 5pm and they still had a second session! Luckily she didn't have any dances in the 2nd part so we split like a banana. Hubs got the outside lights hung up while we were there and then took us out to dinner. Ri was busy w/ SAT's a cheer clinic and school projects as well as work and practice!.

Iz also had piano and 2 soccer games yesterday..did I tell you we were busy? lol..

Amy.

..yay for the wood stove!!!.

Dawn.

..hope you guys worked it out... you deserve some friend time/social life on your own. I'm excited about all that Ikea goodness!! Pix please!.

I can't remember my other shout outs..sorry..

Side note: my feet are like icecubes. Time to go work out....

Comment #2

Hey.

Christina.

...that hot choc sounds delish!! Iz has been drinking a lot of the Westsoy chocolate mint soy drink lately. We warm it up..

How was your weekend? I miss that Florida weather...

Comment #3

Good Morning everyone.

Wow Heather, you were busy this weekend.

Carolyn- Yes I got my Frontierville Thanksgiving finally, I ended up buying a couple items.

Nope.

Our woodstove is not installed yet, my Hubby is doing it himself and had to work yesterday.

Yesterday my Hubby got off a little early so I met him in town and we picked out our Christmas tree, we will decorate it tonight..

Comment #4

Aww....

Amy.

It sounds like VB is very busy. I'm glad you got your tree though..

What's frontierville Tha'giving..is that from FB?.

Ok...no more procrastinating. bbl after my work out...

Comment #5

Yeah it's a Facebook thing Heather.

Yup it's that time of year my Hubby will be swamped until after super bowl, His Brother is getting married Jan 2nd I think, we just found out last week. So Troy is hoping to get the time off, he is in black out for vacation right now..

Comment #6

Good Morning, Ladies... I had a bit of an eventful weekend. I ended up in the ER with heart palpataions. They couldn't find anything structurally wrong with my heart, but my labs were way out of wack. They told me I need to lay off the Medifast foods for a few days and I almost cried. I was wondering if this was the plan for me, but when they wanted to take it away I panicked.

At then end of the week, I will go back for repeat labs and we will discuss my course of action then. I'm bummed..

I did go out and buy myself a scale (I had been using a friends) and have changed my weighing time to first thing in the morning instead of after Sunday dinner. The scale says I am down 17.3 pounds in 3 weeks. I am pleased..

So my question is, if I am not OP, can I still come visit you lovely ladies?..

Comment #7

Morning, lady-kins!.

Dawn.

, hope things are better with marky mark. I can definitely see it being a bit of jealously that you're going out, doing things, and having FUN! I was hanging out with ry last night, telling him he's going to have to start asking me out on proper dates to get time with me because I already have plans monday, tuesday, and wednesday night this week, and i'll be gone thursday-monday visiting my friend in PA. I was (half)kidding, but he got this sad look and said, "what's up with all the plans lately?" hey! I got places to go and people to see! hope things are better today..

Heather.

, sounds like another fun, busy weekend! how'd ri do on the SATs? I just checked the weather in reading for the weekend...brrrrrr!.

Amy.

, yay for the woodstove!!! hope hubs is able to install it soon. did y'all have fun on your day off friday?.

Christina.

, mint hot choc sounds so good!!! I love minty anything. I was at my friend ro's yesterday, and she has peppermint hand soap. I wanted to lick my hands nomnomnom...

Comment #8

GREAT MONDAY MORNING TO YOU LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Amy, great news on the woodstove!@.

Heather, as usual it sounds like you all had a very busy weekend. I stayed with you on FB. How did Iz's bread turn out? Yummy, I'm sure!.

Dawn, IKEA?!?!? Can't wait to see!!!!!!.

I was lazy but productive all weekend. I called in to the Loft Saturday after leaving after only working an hour Friday night. I don't think this is going to work for me. I love the store but with my business picking up I just don't have enough of me to spread around. I just hate to give up that discount..

Anyway, I got another out of state order this morning so I am very happy about it! YAYAYYYY!!!! I am crossing my fingers that I get all my paypal stuff set up this week. That is time consuming and working on it takes away time for creating BUT it needs to be done sooooooooooooo....here we go.........................

Hey Taylor!..

Comment #9

Angela.

, that sounds so scary. I know you're a nurse... did you feel good about their assessment? how were your labs out of wack exactly if you don't mind me asking? just curious. it's frustrating that they couldn't find anything specific, but sometimes, no news is good news. bummer about having to lay off MF, but you gots to take care of you! sounds like you have a good plan set out for yourself. and of course you can still visit us.

You're always welcome!..

Comment #10

Oh, one more thing,.

Angela.

, two thumbs up and a high five for 17 pounds down! BAM!.

Morning,.

She.

!..

Comment #11

Congrats on the 17 down, Angela. Sorry about the other stuff though.

Hang in there!.

Taylor, I lost 2 pounds last week. 18 more to go! Let's do this!!!..

Comment #12

BUN and Creatinine were elevated (with all that water I have been drinking, they should have been down.) Potassium , Sodium and Calcium were low (All being low at the same time is odd). Their explination is that the ketosis was causing issues with my kidneys. The heart palpatations were probably from the low potassium, sodium and calcium. It took about 24 hours for them to stop, but I wasn't willing to let them put me in the hospital (Damn nurses, think we know everything). I've added whole grains into my diet (Spelt, Oats, Quinoa) and a little dairy (mostly yougart) and I am keeping my calories around 1200-1250. But my carbs are up to about 150.

I really didn't go on this program for vain reasons; my intention was to be healthier. SO, perhaps I need to modify my approach a bit..

I'm glad I can still hang out with the cool kids tho. :-)..

Comment #13

Ashlee Drive-By!!!!.

Just got back from a super long vacation from work and I am spinning my wheels trying to catch up! Miss ya'll! be back online later!!!!..

Comment #14

Angela- Yes of course your always welcome here.

I saw Dawn is in the hospital again, according to FB status...

Comment #16

Angela! Skurry! I would see how this week goes, sorry you had that happen.

I had something up with my heart yesterday too, it was like it kept skipping a beat ( I aint no nurse so Idk what that is) anyways it did it for a while and I forced myself to go to sleep..

MORNING EVERYONE!!!..

Comment #17

Morning all!.

Angela.

, I'm so sorry. Hope it all works out. And you are always welcome here!!.

Sheila.

, yay for an out of state order!! Good luck with Paypal!.

Christina.

, someone suggested mixing the chocolate mint soft serve with hot coffee in a blender. OMG. It is so good that I out of chocolate mint soft serve and very, very sad about it!!! Or have I shared this already? I'm just so excited about it!.

Hello to everyone else! Thanks for getting us started,.

Heather.

Sorry about your busy weekend!! I would be exhausted!..

Comment #18

Um what? I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to do with all that softserve I have! Its hard to make it at work. I have it like once a day if that. Yay! New receipe! Thanks Carolyn!..

Comment #19

Hi Ladies!.

I also saw that.

Dawn.

Is in the hospital...anyone know whats wrong? Poor thing..

Angela.

- I also have very low calcium and potassium while on this plan...I dont have low sodium but thats because I tend to eat a lot of the vegetarian options and they are high in sodium. It was causing heart problems with me too...and I have a original heart issue. So now I take potassium and a gelcap calcium supplement. The liquid in the gel caps work better for me. Since the gel caps has fat I also count them as my daily healthy fat. Has fish oil or something.

It really did help me. And the liquid calcium has a lot more absorbable calcium than normal tablets..

Heather.

- WOW that was quite the weekend!!.

Amy.

- YAY for a Christmas tree. Hope the hubby can get off for the wedding and hope your stove gets installed soon..

Sheila.

- did you have to go home after only an hour because they didnt need you or because you had to do other things? You can only do what you can do...dont spread yourself too thin!..

Comment #20

X-Tina.

- my wonderful ninja makes AWESOME Soft Serve...I swear it really tastes like ice cream and is all smooth and creamy...LOVE IT!!..

Comment #21

Morning all!!.

I had a busy but amazing weekend..

The Irish dance comp where was it?..

Comment #22

I'm back and I did work out. Yay me!.

Carolyn.

Do you mix the softserve w/ actual hot coffee ..sorry just want to know exactly how you make it. You just use the packet and coffee? and how much coffee? Do you still crush up the ice..questions questions questions....

Oh no about.

Dawn.

!.

Taylor.

Yep it is really cold here right now. Bundle up!.

Sheila.

That is awesome about your business! Is Paypal a real pain to set up? Try not to worry too much about the LOFT, you can only do so much. Oh the bread was really good. too good. She won a couple other medals too ..for her dancing..

Amy.

That 's fun about a family wedding! I hope VB can get off for it though..

Ashlee.

..how was your vacay? What did you do? How is your dad doing?.

Angela.

..that is scary. WTG on 17 pounds but your health is most important. Maybe you can do a modified version of the plan...

Comment #23

Tiffany.

How are you feeling?.

Katie.

It was in Philly...

Comment #24

I just posted some Disney pix on my blog..their Christmas decorations...

Comment #25

Sheila, do what you gotta do (quitting the part-timer!).

Guys my office building smells like bacon.

I want bacon, but I shall succeed!..

Comment #26

Heather:.

That is funny because the place we were staying at near DC was having a Irish Dance Comp also. I thought that you had gone there and would have been like dang it..i was there also (not dancing) so we could have met...

Comment #27

Heather.

- I am feeling some better. I had a really intense Deep Tissue massage yesterday. Not really suposed to have those with Fribro but the main horrible neck pain I ORIGINALLY went to the hospital for still was no better. Even with the muscle relaxers, anti-infamitories and pain meds. So today I am really really sore. But it does feel like some of the knots are gone...

Comment #28

Heather- I dont know how fun it will be, I guess it's really small immediate family only at her Grandparents house and then they will do a reception like a month later, so we would have to make 2 trips over the mountain.

Oooo I need to pull some chicken out of the freezer before I forget..

Comment #29

I love love love the Ninja , Tiff! It's so awesome. My parents have one. My sister makes smoothies with it. Crushes ice like nobody's business. The magic bullet does pretty good too, no lie but I don't make the soft serve at work. I'm self consious about how loud the ice crushing is.

Comment #30

Amy.

, a small, intimate wedding at a house sounds so charming! I went to a wedding last summer in someone's backyard. it was very low-key and lots of fun. hope it all works out for all of you to go!.

Morning,.

Tiffany.

! glad to hear you're feeling a bit better. have you heard of Rolfing? I heard a story about it on NPR this morning. it's similar to massage but is meant to stretch out your fascia and reduce aches over the long term. i'd never heard of it before..

Melly.

, my "bacon" is a cherry coffeecake in the kitchen. I shall prevail with you!.

Quick Medifast question for you ladies... so I putzed around ordering my food, and it's supposed to arrive this thursday, the day I fly out. I don't have enough food to last through my trip (monday). should I do like 3 Medifast meals and a couple of small L&Gs? or should I stick to it, do my 5 meals + L&G, and when I run out, eat a couple medium-sized L&Gs and maybe eggs or something for breakfast? halp!..

Comment #33

Hey,.

She.

!!! I only lost a pound last week, but i'm gearing up for a BIG loss this week. I can feel it. 3 pounds! i'm callin' it! woo hoo for people finding out about you from OUTTA STATE!..

Comment #34

Hey chicas! QODs on the way.

Haven't backread yet, I'll do that after I post the QODs...

Comment #35

OK...

OK my phone conf is done so I can tell more..

I am now down 34 lbs. 1 lb away from my next mini-goal I am up a bit today from to much sodium over the last few days. That is ok because it will come off again with water etc. People are really starting to notice even when I wear the baggy clothes. The other night for ICE I wore 3 layers. I had my fleece which was hugely baggy and put my big sweater underneat it.

Not the best picture..

I went ice skating on Saturday afternoon and night. I haven't skated in forever. My center of gravity has CHANGED so much. Once I figured out the center of gravity I didn't fall as much. Actually spent my time helping little kids skate. I went into the middle and did my turns.

I want to ice skate more but the nearest ice skating rink is 40 minutes away and it doesn't get cold enough for us to skate outside. I grew up ice skating frequently so it wasn't much for me to pick up again..

I did the best I could with the food. There was no nuker in the room and the fridge was not working right. SO..I tried hard. I don't have the option to have bars etc since they have wheat in them. So no fridger and no nuker leaves me up the creek..

I was in my closet the other day and more 12's are fitting. The 10's are going over the hips now. Not decent enough to wear out of the house but a few more weeks..

This week the exercise will get increased. 45 minutes is about what I can handle without getting woozy from the lower calories...

Comment #43

Heather.

, yes, I mix the chocolate mint soft serve with actual hot coffee. I have a big mug that my sister's kids made me for and it probably holds 2 cups of coffee. I mix maybe 14 ounces of coffee with 1/2 the packet in a blender. Then same for mug #2. I drink a lot of coffee!.

Katie.

, so sad that you can't have bars!..

Comment #44

Taylor.

, yes 3 pounds for you this week! It will happen!.

Tomorrow is my official weigh-in. I was 238.5 this morning, but TOM is encroaching and I retain water like a MoFo then so there is no telling what tomorrow will bring..

1. Have you ever been in a singing group (HS choir counts)?.

Nope..

2. Do you play any instruments?.

Nope. Deaf pretty much translates into tone deaf, dontcha know!.

3. If you HAD to make all your Christmas presents by hand, what would you make?.

If I had time, I would do black and white drawings of people's favorite photos. If no time, something easy like Cookies in a Jar. I refuse to bake this year. I just can't do it. I'm already having a hardish time with holiday temptations. They are killing me!.

4. Which is your favorite reindeer (you know there's Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen, Rudolph, and Olive) and why?.

Rudolph, of course. I'm a misfit just like he is! If I was going to pick according to cool name, Blitzen would win..

5. What's your favorite kind of salad?.

Probably Caesar or Greek. Although I do love salads that incorporate fruit and nuts along with mixed greens..

Bonus- L&G?.

I just had a tuna salad from the school cafeteria. It also had an egg in it. I think the lean is probably less than what I could have had, but had to eyeball it and decide and just went for it. I made a spinach and cheese dish last night to bring in for today and forgot it. But since tomorrow is weigh-in, I don't want to eat my bigger meal at night!!..

Yes I was in High school choir..

4. Which is your favorite reindeer (you know there's Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen, Rudolph, and Olive) and why?.

I was just chewing GUM nothing thick or chewy...

Comment #54

Carolyn.

- Nice drawing! You are a talented artist..

Update on my Dad:.

I took some days off work to give my mom a break from driving my dad to Philly and back 5 days a week. I went with him last Monday for his all day chemo treatment. I am very very thankful that though today is week 4 of his 7 week careplan, he is still relatively feeling good. He is very very fatigued and his hair is starting to fall out a bit but otherwise he looks the same. His energy level is down, of course, but he doesn't complain or tell us if he is in pain or uncomfortable. The dr's had to really pump him for info about any symptoms of radiation/chemo.

Thanks for asking about him gals..

Comment #55

Sheila- that's really cool about your choirs!.

Thanks for the site link..

Carolyn- WOW, I am amazed. Your drawing is BEAUTIFUL!..

Carolyn, I'm still in awe of your drawing. Girl, you are seriously talented. WOW!..

Comment #58

Ashlee- Olive is the other reindeer. When you sing the song, it says "all of the other reindeer" and it was a common misheard lyric. All of=Olive. They made a movie about her a couple years back..

Glad to hear that your dad seems to be doing as well as possible..

Ok... I'm new here... So, I've gotta ask. Carolyn? Deaf?.

And after that little bit of rudeness is out of the way, here are my QOD answers..

1. Have you ever been in a singing group (HS choir counts)?.

Yes, I sang in Choir during my Sophomore and Junior years of High School. The choir director kicked me out of choir in the middle of my Junionr year because I missed the Christmas concert. I guess being in the hospital having my appendix removed was not an adequate excuse for her. She always said "Concert attendance is mandatory unless you are dead." I guess she meant it!.

2. Do you play any instruments?.

I played violin in 2-5 grades then upgraded to Bass. I played Bass all through Junionr and High school, attending Blue Lake Fine Arts camp for 3 summers as well as Interlocken for one. After highschool I played with the Oakland Pontiac Orchestra for 2 years. I was kind of obsessive in my playing and would practice 4-6hours a day! One day I realized that my work life was surrering because I was playing so much, so I packed my bass away and haven't touched it since. Since my divorce I have moved it back into my living room and it mocks me daily. One day I may touch it again, but I don't want to lose my life to my art..

3. If you HAD to make all your Christmas presents by hand, what would you make?.

Oh, there is so much I could make. Rock candie or cookies, crocheted scarves or blankets, holiday ornaments or my favorite - coupon booklets. Made 'em as a kid, still give my dad one every year..

4. Which is your favorite reindeer (you know there's Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen, Rudolph, and Olive) and why?.

Vixen - and well, the reason is obvious. We have so much in common! ;-).

5. What's your favorite kind of salad?.

Spinach and chicken. Mmmmm.

Bonus- L&G?.

Ironically, I am making spinach and chicken salads tonight for dinner. My kiddo loves them as well...

Mer, It is all of the other reindeer. They changed that for a certain movie I'm guessing for Olive?..

Comment #62

Olive the Other Reindeer is actually a book they made into a movie. Olive is a dog that thinks the song is about her...its really adorable! We have it on DVD...

Comment #63

Angela- OMG, are you serious? Kicked out for missing a concert while you were IN THE HOSPITAL? Craziness..

I love the fact that they took a misheard lyric and made money off of it. And that drawing is really cute...

Comment #64

Thanks, everyone!.

Taylor.

, was it you who asked who it was? It's Viggo Mortensen. I love his face. You can really see that it is him in the original. The picture I posted is a little distorted because of the angle of the camera when I took it..

Angela.

, you're not rude to ask, lol. I am "legally deaf" which means my hearing loss is severe enough to classify me as deaf and not just hard of hearing, but I do really well with what I can hear with my hearing aid and my lip reading ability. I lost my hearing when I was four years old. I had meningitis. I have no hearing in my left ear and about 20% in my right, but my hearing aid gives me 80% in my right...

Comment #65

Glad you are doing a little better. I had a deep tissue massage once and I was bruised from it. Never again. Be careful. How's your soup?.

Ashlee.

Thanks for the update on your dad..

Carolyn.

An at-home wedding does sound nice but not two trips over the mountain in winter. I'm with ya on that!.

We are getting flurries!!! They are very sparse though and no accumulation..

Here's my tattoo from last week's thread. I tried posting the pic but that was day Medifast was having all of those issues...and quadruple posts...

Comment #77

Heather, Big Boi has a solo album out right now that seems to be doing well. I think Andre 3000 may be working on a film?? I want them to do some more music as a group. It's time. I have EVERY CD and could listen to them all day EVERY day!..

I love Olive the other reindeer! We have the book and stuffed toy (back off you stuffie-lovin' people, she's mine!!). The movie was cute too but I really like the book...

Comment #80

Mer.

What a nice gift for your MIL!! Are you going to watch the Sing-Off tonight? Not much is on so I will probably be tuning in...

Comment #81

Chatty girls. I was in a meeting for like an hour and a half. Hah!.

It's cold here, ya'll. I'm freezing my fanny off. I wish parts of me would freeze off....that would be convenient. BUT, I digress. I was just in a classroom where the temp said 67 degree and I was near a window. It was probably closer to 60, which is frio for us!! I need more clothes to layer..

Tonight, I have scheduled myself to do 1 hour of Just Dance and look at homework for my class. I started my next to last class for my first degree. W00t! Looking forward to be able to say I have a master's on my resume...

Comment #82

I'm really really looking forward to the Glee Christmas episode tomorrow. I'm such a Gleek...my sister, who works at Claire's, said she wants to get me Glee merchandise for Christmas which makes me laugh. "DO you want an "I love Puck" bracelet and necklace? Or just a "Glee" notebook with an "I love Finn" arm cuff?" Hah!..

Comment #83

It's a little better. The instructor is kind of a flake. We have to submit our photos through her flickr group and wait for her to approve them to see them on the group and get her feedback. Well it went like two weeks and I hadn't heard anything or seen my pix in the group. I was waiting for feedback before moving on in the assignments. I finally emailed her when I got home and she didn't realize it had been that long and she had been sick (she has 4 kids too).

I am going to try to some of the assignments. I'm getting a little bit out of it .The class was only $20 so no big whoop...

Comment #84

Me too me too(about the episode!) I always look at the Glee merch in Claire's when I'm in there with Iz. She doesn't watch the show though...
