Good Morning! I'm not ready to be at work yet today! I'm still pretty sleepy. Hopefully my coffee will kick in soon!.

Hope everyone had a good weekend! I had so much fun with my girls on Saturday night! Yesterday my sister and I addressed invitations to the surprise 30th anniversary party we are holding for our parents! I'm so excited about it, it's coming up in March! I talk to my mom all of the time, and I am so afraid I am going to slip and say something casually! I'm trying to be very mindful of what I say!.

I'm thinking of joining the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) and taking one of the beginning running courses that starts in a few weeks. I think it might be fun and it would be a good way to hold me accountable for running. They have group runs once a week after a class. I just need to find out which day my Spanish class will be and that way I can see if it will work with my schedule! Okay ladies, bell rang. I will check back in later today or after school!..

Comment #3

Morning Ladies! Hey Amy and Kimberli!.

Amy - thanks for starting the thread I was just about to do something, but I'm glad you did..

My weekend was very productive. I had several tutoring sessions and I cleaned house. Still aways to go with the house but getting it done..

Started my meds and it seems okay. They will prob have to adjust the dose as I dont sleep very long but I am already starting to feel better rested and noticed I am not in quite as much pain in the morning with my fibro after just 3 days! So YAY! Hopefully one day soon I will wake up completely pain free. That would be awesome!..

Comment #4

Morning Kim & Tiff.

I am always afraid that I will start a new thread the same time as someone else, I kept refreshing to make sure LOL..

Comment #5

Hey girls!.

Tiffany-Good luck with the meds! I'm glad to hear that you feel a little better.

I'm just popping in to say hi. I just finished my yoga, and I gotta shower and meet my friend C for some geocaching!! Whoo hooo!.

Oh, and Mark and I took the boys geocaching Saturday. We had a blast. We found 3 all together, and one was in this neat little park so the boys ran around like loonies on all the snow covered equipment..

BBL ladies!..

Comment #6

Have fun Dawn.

Catch you laters.

I had a good weekend, My Brother & his kids came over and we all had dinner at my Mom's and let them open Christmas gifts from us, then last night was my Husband's after the holidays party and the Fun Center, they have bowling and arcades and lots of other fun stuff, we had a great time bowling and only had to pay $15. the whole night. Only bad thing is my kids were up until almost 11pm so they are going to be tired today I know I am..

Comment #7

Good Morning Ladies,.

*Rant* I wish people would stop being jealous of my snow or asking how great the snow is. Snow is NOT great. I am stuck in my house and cant get to the lab to work on my research. What is great about that? NOTHING! Ugh! I hate F-ing snow! *end rant*.

My weekend was boring. I was stuck in the house all weekend due to the snow. I only left for like an hour yesterday to walk the dogs. Most of the roads were clear but some still had ice on them. But we got another 3 inches last night and I am stuck in the house again. I have an all day workshop tomorrow which I hope isnt going to get cancelled.

Did I tell you I hate snow?.

Amy Thanks for the image codes..

Kemberli The CARA sounds like a lot of fun. I want to start running but it is too cold here for me..

Tiff That is awesome that you are seeing an improvement already..

Dawn Sounds like you had fun this weekend..

Morning Xtina..

Comment #8

This is an older thread but still is current info, some really interesting stuff. Its all stuff I wish I had known when starting MF..

Comment #9

No prob Jess, I was irritated because I couldnt find the codes in time to edit the first post, but oh well..

Comment #10

I have a really bad case of the Monday blahs. Everyone is getting on my nerves and I kind of want to use a blugeoning tool on them. I hate feeling so cranky on Mondays but I don't think theres much I can do to help it, especially at this craptastic place..

Ok, I'm done whining. Weekend was busy, as usual. Huge sale at Bath and Body Works! Bunches of stuff 75% off...can't pass up a deal. My car, my body, my husband and my house now smell delicious...

Comment #11

My Daughter is such a stinker LOL, We let all the kids stay up way past bedtime and go do something fun and when I woke her up this morning she was giving me the evil glare..

Comment #12

Well, that fixes that. My workshop for tomorrow has been cancelled. *Le sigh*.

It would give me more time to work on my lit review, if the site where I look up my papers wasn't broken. *Le sigh again*..

Comment #13

Morning yall!.

I am sore! Man, you think about what the mama does in labor, what about the helpers! I felt like I did a million push ups.

But it was a blessing to help and Thank god the baby is ok. She was breathing because she had the cord wrapped around her neck and no one told my sister.

They also had to jump start her breathing and kept her in the nicu over night. I went home around 4 in the morning. DUring the birth she was in a position where her head was up not down? and so that meant her pushing was going to be longer and harder to get her out. I wanted to cry for happiness but it was the opposite. It was the scariest thing in the world for my sister to have that kind of birth. The baby is breathing well on it's own and they should go home today.

She has a air bubble outside her lungs but it should go away. Im hoping my sister can have a good outlook on something through this. THe girl is BEAUTIFUL and has a head full of dark hair. It was an amazing birth she pushed for 2 1/2 hours, I pushed for 15-30 min! I wish I could have traded with her. She deserved to have a beautiful, happy, amazing birth...But The baby is ok and thats all we can ask or pray for!.

I am so sore!.

On that note, I was seriously contemplating calling in..I need a day for myself, I have class tho tonight so ima tough it out!..

Comment #14

Morning All...

I pretty much had a boring weekend. I was going to ride yesterday afternoon but it was just to windy. So instead of I went to the mall. I decided that I won't be going back to that mall again. They got rid of my favorite store in the mall. The clothes fit me well, and they had good sales.

I had a gift card to use at Sears and I ended up getting a Magic Bullet. I went to the sporting goods store and got a new pair of exercise pants..

I had a terrific loss this week. What a concept of doing the plan the way it is written and getting rewarded with a good loss!! I am almost out of the 180's. I am officially just overweight now instead of obese!!.

I was talking to my one friend and again she was giving me grief about my goal weight. Ya know I want to be thin, not still chubby. I look at the pictures from the last time I was at goal. Yes I looked good but could have lost another 20 lbs easily and looked good. That is what I am doing. I think some of the her issue is jealously.

I don't think she looks at what she spends on fast food and it is less. Yes I am in a mood today...

Comment #15

Aww Mel, Im so sorry your sister had to go through that, my oldest was also face up and I ended up having an emergency c-section. Im glad your Niece is doing good and healthy her little cone head will go away..

Comment #16

So is everyone getting alot of snow? I have seen posts on Facebook but havent actually looked at the news the last few days. We got a little dusting yesterday and thats all it's just been super cold. I think we are suppose to get snow all week though.

Hi Katie..

Comment #17

I know both Alabama and Georgia are. My sister's busness trip got cancelled. They arent getting snow where they live (lower Alabama...aka LA) but in Central and north they are and thats where they were going to drive. All the roads are closed and stuff..

No snow here...Florida's like that...

Comment #18

We are supposed to get the storm tomorrow. It is unknown if it will be ice or snow right now. It is cold enough for snow but who knows what the path will be...

Comment #19

Ya I think they should have done an emergency C-section. Thats kinda why it makes me mad. The mid-wife probably didnt want to...

Comment #20

I went through Hell with my oldest sons delivery, they also tried using the vacuum. But it didnt work so they pushed him up out of my pelvis and did a c-section, he has a scar on his weird where they pushed him..

Comment #21

Melly - So sorry to hear that. I cant believe the midwife didnt say anything! Thats crazy...if they had known she was breach to begin with they should have done a c-section...

Comment #22

Thanks for starting a new thread Amy! My internet was acting really wonky this morning. I'll back read then post the QODs..

Comment #23

Melly That is scary. My sister had her cord wrapped around her neck and they did an emergency C-section on my mom. I hope both of them get better soon..

Katie Dont let your friend get to you. Only you know what is right for your body..

Amy There are two different systems moving across the plains and coast. They are going to meet up and make even more snow tonight. YAY!..

Comment #24

Kimberli- love the new pic!.

Hi Tiffany! That's SO great about less fibro pain!!.

Hey Dawn!.

Hi XTina!.

Jess- lol on snow NOT being great!! I agree!.

Hey Melly! Congrats to your sis!.

Hi Katie! Sorry about your friend- I think you're right and she's just jealous...

5. If Biggest Loser had offered you a spot on the show when you were at your heaviest would you have taken it? Why or why not?.

Maybe. My issue is with the fact that those people have to stop their normal life to participate. I dont want to be away from my family or working to possibly win something. Just doesnt seem right, even though I know the health benefits would be out of this world..


Chicken breast and a salad...

Comment #31

So Im going to whine for a minute: Im having one of those days..

My running partner, Sara, and I have worked out a schedule so that we run every other day or close to it. I even run SUPER late just to accommodate her schedule and thats finebecause Im just glad to have her there being supportive. So we said this is it. Our schedule. End of story. SO, she tells me today that she cant run with me tonight because her couchbag-y boyfriend (a whole other issue) told her last night at 10pm that he made plans for the two of them to watch the National Championship game tonight with another couple.

Am I wrong to feel a little miffed? I mean I know we just started and everything but still? But even so we have concrete plans over a week in advance and she drops it for him? Yargh...

Comment #32

Christina we are twins today(smore & chicken).

I am now eating blueberry oatmeal, need something a little more solid before work so I dont go potty a million times..

Comment #33

Im heading to work, catch you all later this afternoon.

Have a great day..

Comment #34

Christina- that sucks about your running partner. I'm sure she feels guilty for canceling on you. Does her bf do things like that to her a lot?..

Comment #35

Afternoon Vixens!!!.

Just a drive-by today. Work is off the hinges busy! I don't even have time to read today's posts. I will be back in full Shlee force tomorrow!!!.


Comment #36

X-Tina: that sucks! Hopefully it wont become a habbit. I think if it does then bring it up, this time just be privately miffed...

Comment #37

OMG...I have to pee sooo bad and my boss is in the restroom!!! I am having to really amp up my water now thanks to my new meds. It is really really salty and it tastes like salted up ocean water. I have to mix it with Crystal light just to drink it. Its only 1/2 cup CL so I'm not going to obsess, and thats what the Dr told me to do. I know it may slow my Weight loss a little but I'll get over it, especially since it seems to help...OHHHH he's out now! YAY..

Comment #38

Your office only has one bathroom? WOW.

What's everyone up to tonight?.

Both Roommie and Jason have classes Mondays and Thursdays, so I will have the house to myself tonight. I think it's awesome I will have two whole nights to myself every week..

So tonight I am going to a TurboKick class with one of the gals I did personal training with (it was her, me, and Roomie). Afterwards I'll Just Dance, shower, make myself dinner, and watch TV and play computer. Sounds like a great night to me!..

Comment #39

He's not a nice guy. He doesn't hurt her physically but overall he's generally just mean to her. She's tried to break up with him more than once but keeps going back because she doesn't know how to be alone. Blah. It's just a crappy situation...and I really don't like him because she's my friend. I wish she would just move on but it's been over a year now...incredibly.


Friends, with him...

Comment #40

Plans for tonight:.

Dinner and running by myself this evening. I'm going to try and start W2 of C25k but I'm not sure if I"m ready. IF I can't make it, I'll repeat Week 1 again. Other than that, probably crashing. I'm over today. The cosmos are against and making sure I know it...

Comment #41

Christina-you have every right to be miffed. That sucks and she is being lame. 'Nuff said. And don't push it, if you have to repeat W1 then so be it. W2 will still be there when you're ready! I'm super proud of you!.

Jessica-I'm over the snow as well. We got some last night on top of the 6-7 that are crusty and old over here, and now it looks like we're getting slammed tomorrow night into Wednesday! Yikes..

Just got back from geocaching. It was soooo fun. It was a workout too. There were hills that made my booty burn!! We were in a wooded park and we found 5! It was so beautiful and we found these awesome teepee looking structures made with thin logs/large'll see on fb. It was like being a kid again. We were bushwacking and digging in the snow for stuff. We were out for a good 2 hours...

Comment #42

Monday QODs!.

1. Do you have any pets? List them. If you don't, would you like one? If so, what?.

2. What's the last thing you ate?.

String cheese.

3. Have you tried the new Medifast pretzels?.

No, I disagree with that show on so many levels. No way..


Some sort of stir-fry. I just got some steak out to slice nice and thin, then I'll get loads of veggies and make a yummer sauce!!! No rice...

Comment #43

Each Suite has a restroom. Luckily it's normally just me and my boss in my suite but today payroll is also here. The suite next to us use ours alot for some reason, eventhough we dont do the same...

Comment #44

Plans for tonight: Clean my kitchen and do a load of laundry. I seriously worked my tail off yesterday cleaning but didnt get to the kitchen. So yeah tonight kitchen...I am really hoping I will come home to find Baxter mysteriously mutated and can do kitchen cleaning. But I dont have my hopes too high for this...

Comment #45

Christina-it's always hard when you see a good friend in a bad relationship.

Dawn- yay for doggie adopting!.

Tiffany- that's kind of weird about the next suite over using your bathroom, do they have more people or something?..

Comment #46

Hey everyone!.


, I'm so glad your sister and the baby are okay. Whew! Best wishes to the happy family!.


, I am your mood twin. I'm just pissy as hell today..

Off to answer the QoDs...

Comment #47

Monday QODs!.

1. Do you have any pets? List them. If you don't, would you like one? If so, what?.

Tuggy my 7 year old boxer. He is the baby and he knows it. He helps me when I exercise and do ab work. He will stand over my stomach and lick me every chance he gets..

2. What's the last thing you ate?.

MF Chicken & Wild Rice soup..

3. Have you tried the new Medifast pretzels?.

Nope they are not gluten free.

4. When's the last time you exercised? What did you do?.

Saturday I did running on the treadmill, and did the stair climber machine..

5. If Biggest Loser had offered you a spot on the show when you were at your heaviest would you have taken it? Why or why not?.

No for several reasons. I am not into people seeing what I weigh. I also don't like the way people get upset if they just lose 2 lbs. A two lb weight loss is a good thing. Any loss is a good thing. I also don't think the extreme exercise that they do at the higher weights is healthy.

The knees are not made to handle that..


I have no clue. Most likely egg whites or ground turkey. I will nuke some veggies also...

Comment #48

Why is it still snowing!!!!!!.

Tiff ick! 5 days for a lot of things can be too long. The soup probably doesnt have the preservatives needed to last with water in it..

X-tina You have a right to feel miffed. It would be one thing if she told you a week ago she was going to bail on tonights run but not the day of. It is hard to be supportive of a friend that wont get out of a bad relationship..

Dawn You are getting what is left of what Im getting now I think..

Plans for tonight: Sit here and go stir crazy some more. I have done close to everything I can to be productive for today. I keep hitting road blocks. I may breakout my Just Dance game for a hot minute. I played on multiplayer mode but have played it on challenge or what-not yet..

Questions in a second!..

A nice ice blue color for the cold day :-D.

Chicken, green beans and a baked potato.

You know, if people didn't know I was in maintenance my answers could really give them the wrong idea...

Comment #51

Carolyn- I have broached the topic with her a few times. She's not very receptive to hearing about it from other people. I'm not the only friend who has tried. When she gets upset, she shuts down, doesn't say anything and just tries to change the subject. It's not worth getting her agitated about it but she knows she's in a bad place, she just can't bring herself to get out. All I can really do at this point is just be there for her when she needs me but I never bring him up. I hate talking about him...

Comment #52

Good Afternoon gals... I wasn't going to come on here yet for fear of failure.

But I am on day 4 on Medifast and so far so good! I recognize a few faces but not everyone. Hi, I am Charla, 36.. married 2 kids Tanner 14 , Cooper 15 months. I am Amys neighbor.

I started Medifast in July 2008, lost 60 lbs in 6 months..... got preggers.... made horrible choices.... I have gained it all back. Coops 15 months now, I decided to try this again. I started drinking pretty heavily the past year.

So besides the food, the alcohol issue is my demon right now. So far day 4 for that as well. I too am sick of the snow it depresses me this time of year. I feel trapped alotI will admit it's been extremely hard to go back on MF... I hope I can keep it up, financially as well. I know it works though and I am determined to let it work again.

Soooo nice to meet you all ( those of you I do not know!)..

Comment #53

Dawn- My Father In Law is obsessed with Geocaching.... I mean Obsessed!! I think he has like 1,500 caches and he only started a couple years ago!!..

Comment #60



! Welcome! I'm Carolyn, 41, school librarian, divorced, no kids, 3 cats, 1 dog, 2 nieces, 2 nephews..

I'm also a recovering alcoholic so I've been in that bad place with alcohol and if you need to talk about that, feel free to email me..


, I have a GameCube hooked up to the TV in the treadmill room and I am hooked on Zelda right now. I could go forever. I tend to do a harder workout, like hills, for 45 minutes, and then slow walking the rest of the time so I don't do too much on too few calories..

My weight loss has dropped in the last 2 weeks and I'm worrying about calorie intake and exertion and if I should just do a straight up 4 & 2. I'm going to record everything for another week and see what my carb and calorie contents are and compare it to my workouts...

Comment #61


, having been in one of those relationships myself, I can empathize with both sides of it. I'm glad you have at least said something so she knows your concerns. It will make her feel stronger to know she has a support system if she ever does decide to leave...

Comment #62

Hi Charla - I am Jessica, 25 y/o college graduate student working on my Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering. I am single, with no kids but I have 2 dogs. I lost 70 lbs on Medifast and am now in main..

Although, I don't know you, I will say this, you shouldn't be afraid of coming here. We are the most supportive group that I have found on the site. If need be we can tell you off plan food has been spit on, encourgage you (or kick your butt) back on plan and start working to common goals together..

All while having our minds in the gutter...

Hello Carolyn! Thank you I appreciate that... you know I never had a prob w/ alcohol until recently.. so far I am okay sober 4 days... I didnt drink everyday, but I wanted to! It helps me sleep. It will be hard cause my Hubs still pounds them down every night......

Awwwww Thanks Mel!.

I am sorry you are having probs with Jose.... I havent been sure whats all bee n going on-outta the loop cept some stuff you have posted now and again on FB...

Comment #68

Carolyn - I was going to say earlier that doing 75 mins and your crossfit I would think definately 4&2. even low impact over an hour should be 4 & 2 or cut back on excersise according to NS. At least thats what I read when I looked into it..

Well girls I'm off! See you tomorrow!..

Comment #69

Oooo my goodness, I am home from work and feeling so tired. I can really tell that I stayed up way past my normal bed time last night, I may have to close my eyes for a few minutes.

Welcome back Charla.

Im so glad you came on..

Comment #70

Chicas! Hope you all had a good day! Sorry about all the snow! I'm not actually minding winter too much this year. We actually haven't had very much snow, but I know there is lots of winter left! I mind the cold much more than the snow..

Xtina: I get very annoyed when friends blow off friends for boyfriends. I am all about balancing, but canceling plans makes me sad..

Melly: so sorry for the traumatic birth, but I am glad there is a healthy baby at the end! And sorry about you and Jose..

Charla: Hey there! Welcome back! I am Kimberli, 28, speech pathologist in Chicago! I started Medifast last Jan, lost about 60 pounds took a little break, and now I am back in the game! Its time two for me as well!.

Mer: Thanks for your sweetness about my pic.

Tiff: Glad to hear you are adjusting to the meds okay!.

Carolyn: You are a machine! Way to go on your exercise lady!.

Monday QODs!.

1. Do you have any pets? List them. If you don't, would you like one? If so, what?.

No pets.

I really want a dog, but I live in an apartment, so that is kind of rough. Also, my neighborhood isn't the super safest, so I wouldn't feel great walking a dog alone at night!.

2. What's the last thing you ate?.

MF Caramel Crunch Bar.

3. Have you tried the new Medifast pretzels?.

Nope, they put wheat in them!.

4. When's the last time you exercised? What did you do?.

Saturday. Pilates on my exercise ball. It was hilarious. I have no balance. Workin on it though!.

5. If Biggest Loser had offered you a spot on the show when you were at your heaviest would you have taken it? Why or why not?.

No, I don't think so. I don't really respond well to people yelling in my face (ahem, Jillian). I think it's residual anxiety from playing softball in high school. My coaches did nothing buy scream and make us run sprints.....


Turkey Burger and Green Beans! yum!..

Hi Charla!!! I think you had just had Cooper when I joined. Welcome back. I'm Dawn, in NY, with two boys, I'm a student and I'm 35 (36 in April!!! Aaaah!) and engaged to Mark.

I have an alcohol problem as well, so I can sympathize with the struggle. Good for you for recognizing and taking action...

Comment #72

Dawn: I meant to ask if you used snowshoes or just were able to hike in the snow today? It sounds so fun!..

Comment #73

Amy: Thanks for reposting that old thread. There are definitely good reminders in there!..

Comment #74

No problem Kim, I thought it had some interesting things in it, Of course alot of things I do differently but everyone has there own tricks and opinions..

Comment #75

Kimberli-I just had my Columbia snow boots and warm gloves. The snow is kinda old, so it had that crust on top, we didn't have much trouble..

Charla-I am becoming obsessed with geocaching. My friend has 550, we are going to try to get her to 1000 before she leaves to live with her hubby (he's in Army Ranger training right now) in April. I found 7 or 8 just in the last 3 days. I'm at 15 finds...

Comment #76

Well ladies I am logging out of here for the night, I need to get dinner going and hopefully sit and relax with a movie after.

Have a great night..

Comment #77

Hi ladies...I have been a Pin-Up "lurker" for a while now, haven't posted and thought I should finally post now that I feel I "know" all of you. I'm Jen, 30, live in Kansas City, one dog and a wonderful live-in boyfriend that is doing Medifast with me..

I originally started Medifast in Oct. 2009, was successful for about 6 weeks and then fell off the wagon. I knew it was the right program for me because it keeps me honest. After finishing grad school last year, I finally felt ready to dedicate myself to Medifast again on 1/3/2011..

So it's been a week now, I'm doing great, been 100% OP...even going to the Kansas City Chiefs playoff game yesterday and staying OP (big win for me). My biggest issue is social drinking...another big win is that I haven't had a drink in two weeks...but oh how I miss a good glass of red wine..

I don't weigh myself, just can't bring myself to see how much I've let myself go. I've promised myself at a doctors appt I have on 3/21, I will let them weigh me. I'm 5'10" and probably 230 at this point...just 2 years ago I was 165.

I probably can't check these boards as often during the day, but I'm excited for the commaraderie with you ladies. Thanks in advance, I look forward to getting to you all..


Comment #78

Hello Divas!.

Sounds like each of you had a some fun this weekend....

I am proud to report that I stayed fully OP - and this is my first week with out any boozin' (holiday's are tough for a Pin-up!).

I about cried today- I was so excited to have my chicken and wild rice soup for lunch. It was so warm and it's yummy aroma was filling up my office and then *BAM* I turned a corner and DROPPED it! It splattered all over the floor. Its not that applealing that way...actually looks like *dare I say* vomit..

My co-workers were agast when they saw me scooping it up. They knew what it looked like too. Let's just say, I lost my appetite. But - bonus - I get an extra treat after my L&G tonight..

Oh, and Jessica - I know what you mean about snow. I live in Minneapolis and we have had it with snow! My fiance is in Sweetwater, TN and he is not very happy with his snow either!!.


Comment #79



Sorry about the soup mishap!.


, we get quiet at night, but maybe with some evening posters, we can change that. Welcome! Try not to feel too badly about your weight. I started at 286. 4 years ago I was about 169 and had just run a 10K. So I know the feeling well of completely letting yourself go. But we all start (or restart!) somewhere!.

Talk to y'all in the morning. Time for the bedtime rituals for me...

Comment #80

I went to the gym even though I really didn't want to..

My reward..I saw mr hot body there. HE is drool worthy....

Comment #81

Thanks Dawn!! I remember meeting you when I would just pop in now and again after Coopster...!! Yeah Geocaching is fun and good exercise! I should have got that for the Hubs for Christmas.. that would have been something fun for him and Tanner ( my 14 yr old to do!).. They went when my FIL was in town but he ran them ragged and they didnt get to enjoy it.. he was after the caches not the scenery.

My hubs likes the scenery too!!.

Welcome JEN! I just started back too, awesome job on going to the FB game and staying OP that would be hard. Thats also cool your BF is doing MF! My hubs just cooks all this wonderful food around me and apologizes...uggg.... I guess they all have to eat!!..

Comment #82

Hi Candy! Such a bummer about your soup tonight!.

Hey Jen! Welcome! I'm Kimberli, 28, from Chicago. I'm definitely a social drinker, it's the hardest part of Medifast for me, for sure. In the past, I've noticed when I do drink, even 0 carb drinks, it completely messes with me..

Katie way to go on the gym!!! I need to get back there....

Have a lovely night ladies. I'll catch up in the morning!..

Comment #83

Morning ladies!.

Had a good night last night, cuddled with J on the couch for a bit after work, then it was off to the gym for TurboKick. It kicked my booty! I've taken Turbo classes before, this was the most intense one. I then came home and did Just Dance because I'm on a 7 day challenge. According to my BodyBugg I burned over 4000 calories yesterday! The mystery meat was thinly sliced beef steak, it was yummy...

Comment #84

Morning Girls!!.

Hi Jen. I'm Tiffany, 27 yr old, single, from Florida, no kids, a crazy dog and I'm an accountant..

YAY for all the girls doing excersise. It sound like Carolyn and Merz are doing a ton. Does it mess with your losses to do 5 & 1 with so much excersice?..

Comment #85

Morning Everyone!.

Hi Tiff and Mer!.

Mer: Dang girl, 4000 cals! Impressive!.

I have a busy day at work and then I have a haircut/color w/ a friend and dinner w/ my parents! I'm excited to get through this work day and on to my fun evening! I also have to chat w/ my dad because something with my 401k are changing and I have NO idea what I am doing..

I got a new Medifast shipment last night and I am excited to try have a few new things. I started Medifast w/ what I had left over. Its nice to be able to switch it up a bit! I have an electric tea kettle at work and I am going to have Starbucks via and a Medifast Hot Chocolate for breakfast! I don't know why but I'm super excited about it, haha..

Have a lovely days ladies. I'll try and stop in before evening!..

Comment #86

Welcome Jen!.

Hi Candy!.

Morning Tiffany!.

I haven't done that much exercise in the past, I always stuck to the 45 min limit. But I felt fine yesterday, maybe went over a little on salad though. If I were to ever get weak or light headed I'd cut back on exercise or do the 4-2..

Hi Kimberli! I've also done Starbucks Via and Medifast Hot Cocoa. I LOVE Hot Cocoa. I ordered 6 boxes of it last time...

Comment #87

I had to go google Starbucks VIA...I had never heard of it. With my caffine limits I am going to def. have to pretend it does not exsist right now. With only one cup of coffee or a coke zero a day I have enough coffee/black tea to last a year or more. LOL. But when I finally run out I will def be looking into that. Sounds yummy...

Comment #88

Morning Lovelies!!.

I was on for a few minutes yesterday trying to catch up but didn't get to post. My mom's knee surgery went well. Fingers crossed that she can go home today because we are expecting a big a@@ storm tonight!!!.


Yay for 4 days mama!! You got this!!! So good to see you back!.

I am going to go work out and then I'm working at the school libes, picking Ri up from her first mid terms and then getting to the store. It will be crazy w/ the snow coming. don't know if I have to pick up my mom or not but I'd rather not be driving in the snow. It's supposed to start this afternoon..


, you must be bracing for the snow too. Your geocaching day sounded like so much fun!..

Comment #89

Okay everyone I have a question on a Medifast product. Now I am aware we all have different tastes but wanted to get your input..

The Ready-to-go Shakes. With my new schedule I have to maintain I literally have to eat the moment I wake up and then do 2 1/2 hrs between meals to fit things into my medicine schedule. Now at first wake up I am not really capable of functioning well enough to opperate the magic bullet, or even a shaker jar (I shook it this morning without closing the lid). So these Ready-to-go Shakes seemed like a plan. They are more expensive, so theres that but wondering if any of you gals had tried them?..

Comment #90

Kimberli. your new avi!!.


Sometimes they give out free samples of the Via at Starbucks. They also sell the packs at Walmart and Target...

Comment #91



4000 cals!!! WTG on the Panera yesterday too!!.


The RTD shakes are convenient. I don't think they taste as good as the mixed up ones but they are still good. I've only tried the choc...
