Got a question... Please give me some new and interesting ideas for Medifast Diet? Thanks for any answer. My 2nd question... Medifast is a wonderful program with many different types of support and a fabulous community. We understand that everyone is an adult and this is not a "mean" group. For some of us, we thrive on this program if we have a place where we are held accountable, where we commit to the program 100% and where we have a place to chat with others who feel the same..

What we believe:.

1. Cheating on Medifast is NOT a strategy to get us out of our fat suits.

2. The only way for us to learn about our problems with food is to take the word "choice" out of the equation when it comes to Medifast. Our only "choice" is 5 packets and 1 weighed and measured lean and green a day.

3. We look to those who have been successful with this strategy to continuously remind us about why this way, for us, is the way to go.

4. We believe that, even though we are completely committed, knowing that we have a group that holds us accountable for our actions is both useful and important.

We commit to:.

1. Remove the word "choice" from our vocabularies.

2. Follow the Medifast plan as written, including transition and maintenance.

3. Tell our "inner brat" to shut the H-E-** up and quiet him or her through abstenance from off plan foods.

4. Give and receive tough love without complaining or calling each other "mean".

5. Cheerlead fellow group members as they follow the path to thinness.

6. Make Medifast the LAST diet we ever go on.

7. Check in with the group as often as our schedule reasonably allows.

Getting the banner:.

1. Copy the following text using your favorite method:.

[IMG*]http://i851.photobucket.com/albums/ab74/pennosh/ToughLove.jpg[/IMG*].

2. Click on the "Edit Profile/Settings" link at the top of this page.

3. Click on the "Edit Signature" link on the left of the page.

4. Place your cursor in the "Edit Signature" area (looks like a mini version of Microsoft Word) and paste the text you copied using your favorite method.

5. Remove the two asterisks (*) from the text you just pasted.

6. Click "preview signature". You should now see the banner in the Preview area (above where you are editing)!!!.

7. Click the "Save Signature" button. If you do not, all this will have been for naught! So make SURE you save this after you are all set!.

Anyone is welcome to join, and if folks have additional ideas on how we can commit, I am happy to hear them!..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..

Comment #3

Morning, kids! Karen, hope you feel better. Glad it's Thursday. We got another dusting of snow overnight and are ready for the temps to plummet prolly below zero for the weekend, then another snowstorm on Tuesday. I'm officially over winter..

Planning another entirely OP day today! Somebody, entertain me, k?..

Morning all!.

Just remember, if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off..

Charging off to the first meeting.....

Oh nice. 1-5 more inches of snow predicted by the weather service. I'm betting we get.....

Yeah about that much...

Comment #6

Morning all. Cold here, too. Off to the eye doc before werk, and a class tonight @6, so kind of a short day at the orifice.

Merilee.

Anna.

Penny, or whoever, How do you get your images to show up.

Inline.

As opposed to my above jacks pic all framed off with.

Comment #8

So I'm going to join because I need the kick in the *** for these last 25 pounds (lowered my goal weight, so the rest I need to lose is more than it was before)..

I'm tired of going off plan as I have in the past a few times and mad that I will have been on this a year come March 8th. I want maintenance and transition... NOW. I'm joining. LET'S DO THIS...

Comment #9

Morning, boobnar! Yes, you're brave, alright! Let's get to work on those last few pounds..

Jan, I usually "Go Advanced," click on the paper clip, upload the image from my computer (of course, after saving it there), close that window, then click the little arrow next to the paper clip. You can upload multiple images and they'll all show up when you click the little drop arrow next to the paper clip..

If I don't want to save the image to my computer, such as at work, I'll copy the url for the picture, then click the "picture" icon and do it that way...

Comment #10

I bought a pair of pants last week in a different style, but same size and same brand as the black ones I was so happy about fitting into. The new ones are green and they were by no means zipping up. I'm talking serious football-shaped zipper gap here. Of course, I wouldn't be talking about them if they didn't fit today! Good thing since I have a meeting and not much to wear.....

Comment #11

Hi Tough Lovers!.

I'd really like to join your group but you guys are scary! (shuddering). I'm very sensitive and take everything personally, so please walk on eggshells around me, okay? I'm sure it won't disrupt your flow to make sure your posts don't offend me..

Oh and I'm not sarcastic or funny at all and really can't tolerate a lot of joking around. I mean dieting is serious business!! And I'd like to remind you all that hazing is illegal in most states. My friends call me Debbie Downer..

Every party needs a pooper, right? LOL.

Seriously, though, I have been accused of being extreme in my dieting in the past, so I've chosen not to really talk to a lot of people about my MF. I'm finding it pretty fun figuring out ways to stay low key and not draw attention to what I'm eating or when. Maybe this strategy is appealing to the closet eater in me!.

Looking forward to some snarkiness to keep things interesting. With 100+ pounds to go, I'll be here awhile!..

Comment #12

Hey folks- a very quick checkin as the bell just rang, so I gotta go get the little kiddies- I'll get in again once they get snack in an hour or so. Have a snarky day...oh and I'm already through 24 ounces of tequilla, so the kids should have a ball today!..

Comment #13

Oh, that was hot! Jacks. Oh wait maybe it was a hot flash. Time for Coffee!..

Comment #14

Peeking in.....

Wishing for some magic punch and jacks right about now..

I WILL be in bed by 8:30 tonight. Yesterday almost killed me!..

Comment #15

LOVE.

IT!!!.

Morning Peeps. Lots of new faces this morning. Welcome to all!..

Comment #16

Welcome to all the new TLvrs. It's really nice to see new faces in the clubhouse. See what you started, Em?.

Let the snarkiness, pickles and cheese whiz begin......

Comment #17

I can only imagine what may come up in a google search of.

Tiddly winks..

Comment #18

I just have to share with you that while I won't be joining your group (I wasn't gifted with the quick wit you all have), I do come here often to read because, well...you all just crack me up..

Have a good day!..

Comment #19

Ohhhh mmmmmm...... or Jax from Sons of Anarchy!! yeah baby! Now we are talking. This cougar needs a bad boy to feed me my fried twinkies..

Comment #20

MG - Hey chickie! When my thread was up and running, I googled cheez whiz just for fun. I happened to click on a site right at the time a medifast banner was directly under it. Cracked me up!! Tried to post a link, but when I clicked it the banner had changed. Oh well!..

Comment #21

Good morning TLer's!!!!!.

100% OP yesterday. I will conquer today, too!.

No time for shout outs...I'm a recruiter and I have an interview in just a few minutes..

Hope everyone has a great one!!!!..

Comment #22

Too funny, De. Remember - if you saw it on the innerwebs, it must be true..

Waving at Kimberly loooong time, no see. Glad you found your way back to the clubhouse...

Comment #23

Morning TL'ers..

Hi Newbs..........Good to meet you. Join the fun or just read..

YiaYia-when I do the photos, I just click into photobucket (they have a pic of almost anything imaginable) and under every pic is a copy img link, then just paste in a post...

Comment #24

OK- I'm back and they are snacking on oranges. Although they are technically good for you, they aren't good for me unless drowned in Vodka! So, guess none of those- and of course I am 100% OP today and always now, so it's not even tempting. Oh, and after my 2nd full day, I am down 4 pounds- boooyaah! I know it'll slow down, but I don't care- I'm down 4 anyway! About to hit the 180s after today I bet and that is awesome! I hit it once in a while anyway- the 180s I mean (ha- you can take that how you want to!) - so, back to the 180s- I have been to about 189 when doing ww last month, but I never stay there, so I can't imagine hitting that and lower- and then acutally staying and still losing. How cool will that be?.

Oh, and to those with all the snow- Keep it! I live in South Louisiana for a reason- and that is because I hate the cold except for maybe to go skiing or one snow day. We shut down if there's a lot of ice, so you know just a sprinkle of snow will shut us down for a while. But, it doesn't happen often..

And I'll take some Jacks as well- or maybe the Tiddly Winks- or both, depending on my mood..

Comment #25

I just read your blog.

Marilee.

-I am so glad you had fun and felt comfortable. Enjoy it.

Now just waiting for Freya to report on Mortician Man..

Comment #26

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but work intrudes..

Nope. Vodka doesn't count. It has no nutritional value, whereas tequila can count as your l&g because it's made from a plant and the worm counts as protein. Just wanted to clear that up..

I can't get caught up this morning so I'm going to stop trying. No chopped tofu from me!!..

Comment #27

Me, either, De. I unfortunately have to go and STAND around a table at a meeting about (of all boring things) BUDGETS for one of our buildings and other things I don't care about. I like the property management / tenant services part of it, but the numbers lose my interest every stinkin' time. Oh well, in another month or so I'll be standing out at that table in my cute skirts with tights and boots... that's still fashionable, right? I've gotta get some fashion tips. I remember after "Round One," I didn't even HAVE a style since I spent so long just wearing what fit and covered me.

Jeans and sweaters looked dynamite, so that's what I went with. 5-pocket color cords and sweater dresses with tights and boots. Any help appreciated. Maybe I'll try those back-seams-in-front trick Freya talked about.....

Comment #28

Sweater dresses and boots are still huge. One look I wear now is the sweater over tights and then leg warmers scrunched at the top of the boots. I got swarms of compliments..

I usually go to Maurice's, Express, The limited and see what they have the mannequins dressed in and then copy the look from Kohls or Boscovs.

I am 5'4" and one look that has really caught back on is like the 50's cropped jackets. So cute, I have a couple and wear them with black slacks and saddle type shoes...Another huge compliment getter...

Comment #29

Morning all! I'm pretty sure this is the earliest I've made it out of bed in a full two weeksgonna try to slowly adjust back to my accursed 0530 wakeup in time for going back to work next weekand I'm feeling a bit groggy. I am epically happy to see, though, that all of our "negative publicity" on Connection has brought hordes of newbies our way! Hi and welcome to everyone!.

NSVs for the day: Today's weigh-in brings me from a "severely obese" BMI to "obese." Whoop for movin' on down! And yes, I'll quit it with the daily weigh-in reports once it slows down enough to be annoying..

Right now it's still fun though, with 1+ pounds down some days!.

And the next NSV: My resting heart rate is dropping again! At my peaks of fitness and exercise, my heart rate when I'm almost asleep has been as low as the low 50s. Most recently when I haven't been on plan, it's closer to the high 70s. The last few nights, and I haven't counted but I'm pretty good at estimating (since I watch monitors all day), it's felt more like the high 50s. Whoop! My body is appreciating my changes..

Also, I'm beginning to feel the urge to exercise again. I have a week left, and then it's back to the drawing board to figure out where in the world I'm gonna work that in!.

No chopped tofumaybe later when the fog lifts from my brain...

Comment #30

Lynn, thanks for the tips - I do have some cute longer sweaters and some ultra-hot Calvin Klein ankle boots that would totally work with the leg warmer look you mentioned. I'm pretty tall, but I think it would still work for me. After a few more pounds, that is....

Waiting on some good news and that's all I hafta say about that, but I'd appreciate a couple fingers crossed and some mojo tossed my way.....

Comment #31

Congrats on the NSV Rachel-better health is the best news I hear from anyone on this plan..

Tons of Medifast MOJO Penny-sending you lots of positive vibes..

I really had to go outside my comfort zone when it came to clothes at first. I have been obese my entire adult like so of course big, baggy and plain.......My DD 18 has actually had a ton of fun helping me. She is a wicked little fashionista..

Comment #32

I shudder at the thoughts of what might come up. No time to play this morning. Got to go and rip me some tickets. Come see a movie!!..

Comment #33

Hey all. I didn't get here yesterday until about 2 am so I am unsure if many saw my post then. So I will tell you here. My date was wonderful. I would say it is the best first date I have ever been on, ever. So, to me that is a HUGE deal and I am still feeling giddy about it.

But I don't want to be saying crazy crap like that so early on. Although, the thought has totally crossed my mind but I am not going there.... ANyway, thanks for the good vibes you all sent out my way..

Its gonna be hard for me to get over here on some days with my crazy days at work. It gets so busy and there is a ton I need to do and if I don't want to be there all night and all weekend, etc I really need to keep myself focused. This site can and has been a pretty good distraction in many ways. But I also owe a ton of my success to this site and everyone here for support so I guess this is a again one of these questions of balance. Its not always easy for me. Balance that is..

Oh yeah, the document was sent back to the printers yesterday and they were redoing it. I am hoping it is back today..

I haven't made the effort to read through all of the posts this morning, I will do my best. I read yesterdays last night and I was completely cracking up! You guys are so funny!! I love it, love it, love it!!!.

Penny, good luck with the news your waiting on...

Comment #34

I'll take her mojo one step further Penny and send it in good ole reliable Rogue fashion.

Penny gets her good news!.

Penny gets her good news!.

Penny gets her good news!.

And so it shall be!..

Comment #35

My blood is boiling.....

I just went down to my carI park in a 1-car garage on the first floor of my apartment buildingto go pay my rent and head to Kroger for lettuce and ingredients for that Spana-quiche recipe. I opened the big garage door to find what? Someone's broken in to my garage!.

They came in through the back doorthe normal size door that leads to a short passageway (which leads to other garages) and then exits out in the interior apartment hallway. I got in and that door was hanging wide open, and the light was on, that was my clue something was wrong..

I got around to the other side. That garage has been the subject of some serious strategizing, and when I park I have very little clearance on any side. Someone was not to be deterred, however, because they just picked the boxes up,.

Stacked them on the hood of my car,.

And cleared a path to the big screen TV that was leaning up against the wall..

FORTUNATELY, the TV is still therejust.

Moved.

A bit, which tells me this person was working alonethat TV requires two people to lift or move any significant distance. DH is going to head home after lunch to assess the damageall of the stuff in there except my car belongs to him, so he'd be the one to know if something is missing. Already it sounds like they did get an iMacone that I don't ever even remember seeing, but he says was right there in front of my car and was a nonfunctioning piece of equipment from work that he had had in his car for repair..

So... now I'm stuck at home and feeling rattled. This is the safest-feeling apartment complex I've ever lived in... well, so much for that...

Comment #36

Damn Rachel! I'm so sorry to hear that. I remember the feeling though. When I was in HS, my brother and I pulled in and saw movement in our garage (door had a window) and found the front door unlocked. We had apparently surprised someone in the act. The scariest part of it all was that they new exactly what they were looking for. My dad's gun collection.

After they got what they came for, they went through my mom's and my jewelry boxes. Found out later they had also drugged my dogs..

The crazies can find their way in everywhere!!!..

Comment #37

Wow, Rachel! That is horrible. I am so sorry to hear that...

Comment #38

Rachel, I'm so sorry, that has to be unnerving...

Comment #39

The sad part, is I know the routine for dealing with this. After DH comes home, we'll first call the police and file a report... then we'll file with our leasing office... then we'll choose which renter's insurance policy to file on, based on what's missing. We both still have active policies, because we've each had our separate apartments robbed within the last few years..

Gosh, this is why I don't like people...

Comment #40

Ditto Rachel! LOL..

Hopefully, they didn't get much more than a broken computer...

Comment #41

Sorry Rachel-That is scary. our home was broken into last year. We didn't discover anything missing. The cops think someone rifled the medicine cabinet looking for scripts maybe. We don't have any. I didn't sleep well for months..

When the kids were little, their little portable cd players and crap was stolen from our car....By the time the cops and court got done with the evidence MP3 was already out. So they never really even used them.

It is a total violation of us as people to have someone do that to us...

Comment #42

Welcome, Amanda! Good call, being aware that drunk-puking would take you off plan. Good lookin' out. I disagree about the protein/off plan thing. I think vodka can totally be OP if it's bacon-flavored. Just ask NS, they'll tell you..

Marilee - ZOMG yay for successful date! I'm so happy for you!.

Various - so sorry for morning suckage. Hope it looks up soonest....

Penny - hooray for little pants!!! Back seams in front is only for when you're out looking like a tart, because they're still seamed stockings. No-can-do at work unless you have the "got a big event/date tonight" excuse..

I totally know what you mean about developing a style, though. I've been working hard to find out how I dress. It seems to involve a lot of sweater dresses, tights, cute socks, and high heels/boots, but it also keeps evolving..

TKD: I solemnly swear to never ever offend you in any way, and to always put in multiple disclaimers to make sure you understand I mean no offense.*.

*Disclaimer: the above was total crap..

Lori - there's no rule you have to be a snarky bee-yatch to hang out here! Please check in and let us know how you're doing if you're going to be visiting regularly..

RACHEL'S JUST OBESE OMG!!!! I'm thrilled for you. That's wonderful. (And so sorry about the break-in.) BUT OMG JUST OBESE!!!.

Lynne - I'm here, I'm here! Report on Mortician Man = Damn Good. Awesomely wonderfully Damn Good. I had already dumped Bellingham guy, and last night in my head I kicked Sweden Dude to the curb too. So whenever Sweden Dude gets back if he reaches out he's going to find my attention is elsewhere. I'm kind of smitten with the mortician. And so is he with me.

Right Now!!!.

(And this means that Freya managed to "play the field" for about 3 weeks before losing it and picking a favorite. I suck at juggling. *happy grin*).

So far he's brought a gift every time he's seen me. Last night he had a new fleece blanket sitting on the seat of the car so I could have a lap blanket for the drive to dinner. Because I was cold before (his car heater isn't the best). We're going out dancing tonight..

Just... *happy sigh*.

Oh! And I'm at least a little bit "out" about Medifast with the mortician now. He saw my pantry. I told him I had 8 more pounds to go (7 now) to remove the wages of sin, and then I'd be eating less of my space food. I did NOT tell him where the wages of sin had gotten me. He does not need to know that, not one little bit. He thinks I'm beautiful..

Good morning, darlings!..

Comment #43

Oh Rachel- that stinks- I am so sorry! I often wonder if I should put an alarm on my garage- I mean, it's closed, but someone could get in just like they did to you. Scary and I'm just sorry you'll have to go through all of that crap! When I was a kid, we also had someone drug one of my dogs- I don't think to break in, but still- people just need to go to work..

Penny- Good Vibes here ******** feel them yet? They are coming!.

Lynne- I stilll don't know what it would feel like to wear cute clothes. I think the style of the leggings will be gone again by the time I'm down to where I'd feel comfortable wearing them. But, I can't wait to see what I will be able to wear..

I am feeling so good today it's crazy. I'm only on day 3- could I already be in ketosis? Maybe- cause I am rockin and not even wanting to cheat! I'm gonna be so hot! lol.

Keep having a great day ladies...gonna go write on my blog..

Comment #44

Oh Freya-the blanket made me weepy....That is too cute, he just might be a keeper. Why play the field when you have morty bringing gifts.......Lucky you....I am an old married chick (22 years) but DH does have his moments........

Comment #45

Brandi-I haven't really developed a particular style. It seems like the stores are so extreme-slutty or frumpy. I just want well fitting cute.........I am having fun trying new things. My issue is blue jeans-I just can't seem to find any that are just right...

Comment #46

I know, right? He makes me feel like a princess. Like a very desired, special, gorgeous, treasure of a princess. He can stare at me forever, and you know... losing all this weight has made me into a horrible narcissist. I LOVE IT. The way he looks at me feels like FOOD..

I'm not missing the field at all. Screw the field. I have an adorable attentive man. One is plenty at the moment..

I'm very glad that DH still has his moments...

Comment #47

Freya- so good to hear about your date going well!! I will live vicariously through you, OK? You know, I think maybe my hubby sabotoges me b/c he thinks I'll leave him if I get skinny. I was a cutie when I was thinner- never skinny, but a very ahtletic dancer, so I had a great bod, a LONGGGG time ago! So, I really thing that may be part of the issue- he wants me to get skinny, but also is a jealous man- not crazy jealous, but definitely doesn't want anyone else noticing me! lol- well, he'll just have to deal with it and I'll have to make sure he knows I'm his and only his- and if I feel the urge- I'll live through Freya- ok? ok.

Oh, and I hate bacon, so I guess I'll have to stick to the tequilla- which is fine as I love that, too!..

Comment #48

Brandi: hate bacon? I don't know you..

(And good for you for sticking to your guns and letting hubster work through his own insecurities himself.)..

Comment #49

This makes my day!! More fun than the tired, "nothing tastes as good as thin feels." How about "that desert won't taste NEARLY as good as it will taste to see people looking at me like I'm hawt!".

When I had my last apartment broken into, they took some electronics but also rifled through all my drawers and medicine cabinets. The officer who came to take my police report guessed that they were looking for drugsespecially considering that I was also a nurse at that time and left and came home from work in my scrubs, and the time that I was gone when the theft occurred was very briefsomeone was watching me. *shudders* Ugh, it just makes my skin crawl to think about how insecure we really are!..

Comment #50

Hehe. Next week will be 31 years for me and yes, DH still has his moments, just more bad ones than good..

Comment #51

Well cripes De-if sniper kitty comes out what is the man to do?..

Comment #52

Okay I have to get in my car in a minute and it is full of poison toxins from my campus open house last night........I put the box in my car when I came in the office this morning so I wouldn't see it and have to convince myself I don't need it.....Now I have to get in my car..

I can do this, I don't want any of that garbage. Just think of the hands that touched it putting it from the plates back into the containers......Ick,yuck what those hands probably touched.........

Comment #53

Lynne, nobody washes their hands after using the bathroom anymore. You really don't want it...

Comment #54

Had the weirdest morning. Got a call from one of my best friends, absolutely weeping, because people are giving her grief over what they've decided to name their baby girl who is due next week. The name is...... Froney. It's not a family name, it's not a combination of any names, they just like the word Froney..

I did what I always do, and was blunt with her. I believe my exact words were "Of course people are giving you a hard time, it's the worst name ever. I can't believe you'd do that do an innocent child.".

She's called back two more times because she can't understand why nobody likes it. I'm actually spending my day trying to explain to a very intelligent woman that you don't name a baby Froney..

Had a good weigh-in, though, which is helping my patience level with her..

Froney...

Comment #55

Gigi, that's too surreal. Seriously. Too crazy..

But that two people who want to name a girl Froney found each other? That's proof right there that soulmates exist...

Comment #56

Freya - your guy sounds wonderful. Good for you..

Marilees - glad your date went well..

Aahhhh love is in the air .... Well maybe lust... Time will tell..

Rachel - sorry you got broken into. I had a break in last year. They took my laptop and blackberry. Very un nerving..

Well, I'm supposed to be working. But alas, I am multi-tasking instead (read to mean I am goofing off online)..

I just downed 24 oz of water. I think I'll go pee now. I know you all needed to know that...

Comment #57

Gigi - I have to ask - What is their LAST name?..

Comment #58

Mahalovich. They want to name a poor baby Froney Mahalovich. I didn't even ask what the middle name was. It might actually be the worst name ever...

Comment #59

Hi ladies!.

This week at work is going to kill me. Not much time to check in, but still 100% OP..

I get my stand up desk tomorrow!! woo! hoo! I can hardly wait!.

Rachel, I'm so sorry about your break in. That really sucks! I've never been broken into, but I did have a peeping tom at one apartment that I lived in when I was single. I couldn't get out of that place fast enough I felt so violated. I'm really sorry you have to deal with this...

Comment #60

Indeed. That's very close to the most awful name ever. I did know a pair of twin girls, The Hogue girls Ya. Their names: Ima and Uera...

Comment #61

Froney is a strange name. My old bosses' last name is Forney, so everytime I see Froney and keep trying to say Forney in my head..

Forney is a sad last name too...

Comment #62

Rachel, so sorry that happened to you. What a horrible intrusion... Such an awful feeling to know a stranger has been touching your stuff..

Freya, you sound just like I sounded when I met Marc. It was just magical and I KNEW it was special. No one ever made me feel like he does. Still..

I missed the call that I needed the mojo for (thanks) and I'll have to call them back now. Dang it all. Stewpid meeting. The boss rescheduled this meeting to fit his schedule. Everybody's standing around a meeting space, waiting for him. He shows up half an hour late, yells at everybody, then leaves early.

And they want meeting notes from me. Are you freaking kidding me?..

Comment #63

When I was preggo, I refused to tell anyone what I was naming my son. I was super duper sensitive and was terrified someone would tell me they didn't like it and it would make me cry..

His name is Nolan, btw, and I am the complete opposite of sensitive now..

Comment #64

My 5 yo is on Day 6 of fever and I am about to feed us all the Kool-Aid..

Have a great day everyone!!.

M-..

Comment #65

I just googled it and here's 2 responses:.

Pet dimunutive of Sephronia and.

Derived from Latin mirandus meaning "admirable, wonderful". The name was created by Shakespeare for the heroine in his play 'The Tempest' (1611). It did not become a common English given name until the 20th century. This is also the name of one of the moons of Uranus..

To each their own. I know a Sephronia, but don't know if she has a nickname. Wonder where they came up with it? Hmmmm..

Hey this is totally off topic but I want you guys to know I met De while I was in Phoenix and we had lunch at Sweet Tomatoes so we spent an entire lunch hour together. She is not mean, not scary, and not rude. She is a wonderful person and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and having wonderful conversation..

Please don't let this get out though. I'd hate to ruin her reputation...

Gigi, call your friend back and tell her that two things past through your head when you heard the name:.

Froney Baloney.

Phony Froney.

Then gave her a good smack in the head and hang up. Just sayin'..

My new favorite person..

Thank you....

I do have some anxiety about all the stretch marks, the loose belly, etc. Things are NOT any sort of perfect once I take my control-top tights off. But he seems indifferent to these things, and I am never one to try to talk a man out of thinking I'm hot. I just fret a little on the inside. Especially if I realize I've rolled onto my side and things are spilling down a bit. Ugh..

But these are the wages of sin. Gluttony > damage to my skin. It's mine, I made it myself, I get to lie in it...

Thanks again for all the MOJO! It worked! I'll be going on that 5 year anniversary cruise! Shhhh! it's a secret from hubby and the wee one! She's wanted to go on an airplane for so long - she doesn't remember her first cruise when she was 21 months old. We'll fly to Tampa and leave from there. The cruise goes to Cozumel, Belize, Isla Roatan (Honduras) and Grand Cayman. Never been to any of them! SOOO excited! We can't get the same cabin, but that's okay. Just being on the same ship and getting to go back to the chapel where we were married is gonna be so stinking cool! My good friend and client is a travel agent, so she is hooking me up! Wootyhootyhoo! There's no freaking way I'm going off plan now (not that there was before)!..

Wow. Not only a new word, but a word I'd never seen before in my whole entire life, I'm pretty sure. Thank you for that! I am not fat, I'm simply VENTRIPOTENT! Fear my venti potency!.

Penny - THRILLED FOR YOU. Yay for the cruise!..

Penny -.

YAAAAYYYYYYYYYY.

I was in Grand Cayman YEARS ago...none of he others. They're all Caribbean islands, so it'll be FANTABULOUS! Warm & sunny..

WHOO-HOOO!.

We're going on a cruise in May - my sister & hubby, too. They'll be celebrating their 40th on board while we're at sea. We'll be celebrating our 11th the day we get back home. But we'll celebrate on board and in Italy (which is where we're cruising). We like the 'at sea' days, so we've got lots of them..

Ahhhh....vacation can't come soon enough....it's snowing out and I have inappropriate footwear on...
