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

Hi Sheila! Thanks for the compliment..

It was pretty quiet last week, too. I haven't been around much. Just feel off-plan - again - and fell out of the habit of checking the boards as I tend to do..

I'll do QoDs because Tuesdays were my day once upon a time. If someone else has taken them over, let me know...

Comment #12

QoDs.

1. Do you have a favorite famous artist and/or a favorite famous piece of art?.

It used to be Renoir and the Girl With the Watering Can, but lately I've been more drawn to work that resembles Van Gogh's with the strong brush strokes or really colorful work like Gauguin's..

Again, it used to be Impressionism, but I'm more drawn to modern pieces lately, especially bright colors and simpler shapes..

3. Describe any artwork you have at home decorating your walls..

Painting in the kitchen of wildflowers..

Painting in the den of a river as seen through a forest. It's oversized and really compelling..

Painting in the kitchen of a man fishing and the whole scene is shifted like a kaleidoscope..

Okay, since I'm really busy at work, I'll just give my vacation highlights for now:.

LOVED seeing my grandma's, we stayed with my Mom's mom (Mimi) but saw my Dad's mom (Mamaw) a couple times.

Mimi has a pool and we swam a lot.

Got upgraded to first class on the way down without even knowing it until we boarded.

Had a really nice time with Jason's cousin and her husband in South Beach (Miami).

Swam in the ocean.

Walked around South Beach every day we were there.

Got a free upgrade on our car rental, from a Chevy Cobalt to a Mustang Convertible!!.

Ate lots of yummy seafood.

Went on an airboat ride in the Everglades to see gators and wildlife, held an alligator for a photo op.

Hated leaving and returning to Ohio.

Pictures will be posted on Facebook eventually..

Comment #14

Hi ladies,.

It has been crazy here the last couple of days. I am trying to get a project wrapped up for handoff to the two other people. I think today they finally realized that my time is very limited with helping them. I get an hour a day and that hour gets absorbed quickly. They want me in a team meeting, that is the hour. They also realized how much I actually do on a daily basis..

I am slowly making progress through my to-do pile. Just waiting for feedback on a few things before I can proceed..

I had a dr appt yesterday and he was so happy with my weight loss. We talked more about a realistic goal weight and I told him what I really want to weigh and he oked it. He just doesn't want me to get to thin. I told him that would be way to hard when I love food..

You know the unsupportvie friend that makes me upset. Well she has been doing Slimfast and lasted 3 days. Sunday she texted me and told me about the ice cream sundae she had. I ate my coffee soft serve and counted to 100..

I have a new/old dress on today. I bought it a while ago and wore it at my heaviest. It is amazing how much LONGER dresses get when you have less rear and I am not flashing everyone with my chest...

Comment #15

1. Do you have a favorite famous artist and/or a favorite famous piece of art?.

I like Dejas..

2. What is your favorite time period in art?.

I am going to show my ignorance and just saw Degas period..

3. Describe any artwork you have at home decorating your walls..

Living room - mom made me a patchwork dog head of Tuggy..

Kitchen - Cross stitched picture that mom made, and a metal start from Christmas Tree Shop..

Guest Room - Undersea photo bought from photo auction..

4. Today is primary color day. Look around you and describe the closest thing to you that is yellow, the closest thing that is blue, and the closest thing that is red..

My red fleece that I have. The ricola throat drops, and my Medifast shaker cup bottle cover..

5. What is one color that shows up frequently in your wardrobe, jewelry or accessories?.

Red or Blue...

Comment #16

Hi.

Merzz.

Comment #17

Katie.

That must have felt great at your doc's appt...

Comment #18

Helloooooooooo ladies! i'm back, too..

Comment #19

Hi.

I put on 21 pounds in 2 months being mostly off-plan, so I feel your pain. I bet you will get yours off quickly, though!..

Comment #20

No time to backread right now....

Coopy's had a fever since we got home Sun night.. it may have broke though....

Tanner didnt place at state.

He was pretty upset, we had one of our three place 5th..

He only lost 3 matches all year(Tan).. and of the three matches 3 of them placed 1,3, and 5th in state.. he was pretty disapointed. I reminded him he WAS the district champ and he had a undefeated regular season... he still wasnt very happy.

His record was 24/3 I think great!.

Well I'll try to check back later when I have more time.. hope everyones having a great week so far!..

Comment #25

Good Morning Ladies.

I havent been feeling very good since Monday, not sure whats going on. Ive had an upset stomach, headache and just kinda blah, my temp hasn't gone higher than 99.4 so I am not really sure what I have going on.

This morning my Husband got up at 5:50 with my oldest son so I could sleep in, it was really nice I didnt get out of bed until 7..

Comment #26

Morning Vixens!!!.

Drive-by but I wanted to say hey!!!!.

I miss you all terribly so...but work is crazy sauce lately..

I hope I can check in again later this afternoon..

*smooches*..

Comment #27

Hey girls! Work is still busy, so might not be on much again..

Had a blast at Derby practice last night. I'm still SUPER unsteady, out of 11 Fresh Meat newbies I am the worst skater..

I'm not used to being the worst at something, and it is KILLING me. I know I just got to keep going and it will come with time, but it's still frustrating that I'm not picking it up faster..

But last night we got to practice hitting with our skates off- I'm REALLY good at that, in fact a couple Derby girls told me that I will be a force to be reckoned with when I can skate better..

Random- so our Toledo Living Social Deal of the Day is a $320 two-hour Glamour Boudoir Photo Session for $80. I have 17 hours to decide if I want to buy it and then a year to use it once purchased. I'm on the fence about this one......

From backreading-.

Carolyn- First class ROCKED. Super awesome. Comfy seats and one flight attendant for us and only 8 other people..

Tiff- I LOVED Wicked! Enjoy!.

Hope to be back later!..

Comment #28

Hey Girls,.

Taking my break so I thought I would sneak on..

Mer.

- I have never been in 1st class, want to so bad though. Awesome about the hitting!.

Ash.

- I feel ya! Hope work gets less crazy..

Amy.

- sorry you are sick.

For me 99.4 is a fever. I normally run at 97.6. I hope you get to feeling better soon..

Heather.

- Hi! Have fun at working out!.

Carolyn.

- Art week sound cool! We never did that kind of stuff when I was in school. We had spirit week where we would wear weird things but I would have LOVED art week!..

Comment #29

Mer.

I think you should do the boudoir photo shoot! (but only if you really want it!).

That is great about your hitting skillz in RD! The skating will come. I can see your determination. They better look out!.

We had 1st class once coming home from Florida {sigh} The kids really enjoyed it too. It would be nice for a long flight like Hawaii..

Amy.

..hope you feel better..

That sounds poopy!.

I worked out and went to Wallyworld. Excitement!.

Oh I just put my giveaway on my blog if anybody wants to enter!..

Comment #30

I did. I am so sore from my Monday work out called Get Chisel'd. It's good but tough! I did Sculptilates today..

Art week does sound cool! My kids both have Fine Arts week to display artwork and also the bands and choruses perform. It's pretty neat..

Ri has Spirit Week (s) and they wear all kinds of wacky stuff...

Comment #31

Woo, it is quiet up in here!.

Hello to.

Charla, heather, amers, carolyn, merz, tiff, ashtastic.

, and anyone else I missed???.

Like I said, vacation was wonderful, if a bit crazy. it was our first time to go on a cruise as a family (brother and I had never been, parents went on one for the first time last summer to alaska and loved it). our stops were in mexico, belize and honduras, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect..

Tip for the future... we'll never cruise during mardi gras AND spring break again... wow. there were about 500 college kids on the boat acting a COMPLETE fool. seriously. tying towels together and making ropes to shimmy over the side of their balconies down to the next floor IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEA.

Wowzers. I sometimes fear for the youth... I know I did some stupid stuff, but drinking mouthwash?! that's so disgusting and healthy!.

But I don't wanna focus on that..

Everything else was amazing! delicious food, gorgeous weather, amazing excursions we did cave tubing and mayan ruins. incredible! it was just so nice to be disconnected from everything for awhile. and I didn't think about work once!.

Heather.

And.

Carolyn.

, yes, I am back OP with a vengeance! in fact, I weighed this AM, and I was already down 4 pounds, which makes me think a good chunk of that was water weight. it feels good to be back OP! in a weird way, I missed my morning oatmeal and afternoon brownies...

Comment #32

Taylor.

Wow That sounds amazing (minus the crazy college kids..yikes!) Cave tubing?? What is that? I think it's great that you and your brother still travel w/ your parents!!! It gives me hope. I keep thinking we don't have that many more family vacations but hopefully we have LOTS more!.

I thought 11 pounds sounded like a lot. Yay for losing lotso water weight!.

I forgot to say hi to.

Ashlee.

!! *waves* I was in CH at The Container Store again on Monday. Love that place!..

Comment #33

Heather.

, for the cave tubing (which was in belize), we basically hiked for about 45 minutes into the jungle (mostly flat) with an inner tube, and then we got to the mouth of a huge cave that has water flowing through it. we had little miners' hats with a light on them so we could see what was inside of the caves, and then we floated through for about another 45 minutes until we came out the other side. it was pretty surreal! even though it was a huge, cavernous space, my mom got kinda freaked out and claustrophobic. the dark didn't help! overall, super fun, though. I love the container store, too!..

Comment #34

It sounds like fun but I'd probably be like your mom and a bit claustrophobic. Belize is a place I really want to go (and stay in one of those swanky hut resorts on the beach)...

Comment #35

Hey ladies! Where is everyone this week? Everyone already drunk on green beer? LOL, jk, of course beer isn't on plan...

Comment #36

Good Morning everyone.

Probably not, have roller derby practice. Might stop by a bar, after I shower from practice, but I'm betting I won't feel like going anywhere. Some friends are meeting at an Irish bar but it's 20 minutes away and they are getting there at 7:30. I'd hate to get there at 9 only to have them leave at 9:30..

5.)Is it corned beef tonight, or what it be?.

Idk. At derby, us Fresh Meat are supposed to stay for the regular practices, which are 7:30-9 (ours are 6-7:30). We take turns bringing food in, Tuesday it was taco salads! My turn is next week...

She - glad you are going to be getting back into jewlery!.

Carolyn and Melly - I admire you girls so much for going to school and working part time. I know that is not something I could do..

Merz - Have fun at derby! I really want to try that one day but I am accident prone so prob not a good idea.

Amy - hope you feel better.

Taylor - LOL...our spring break starts on the 25th and I am excited. That means no tutoring for a week!!.

Okay back to work. I'm off tomorrow and runing around so I prob wont be on...

Comment #57

It really has been quiet!.

I do see some of you on Facebook..

Hope everyone had a good day. Tiffany, how is everything working out for you on the health front?..

Comment #58

Top o' tha morning to ya lasses of the PinUp world!.

Ok ok so that was supposed to be my greeting yesterday I started it three times but never got a chance to finish my message before needing to restart the comp at work & losing everything I had open..

Hope this message finds everyone well.

I have been trying my hand at going out & doing SOMETHING somewhere with someone every night in March. I missed the first couple days making arrangements for the rest but today is day 16 of my "staying social" Ashlee adventure..

It's exhausting & exciting, but rewarding..

Here's some highlights:.

I've made fast friends with a couple new people. I've stayed in a ridiculously fancy hotel suite & saw a comedian where my tickets were front row center! I hosted an event for my mom's volunteer organization & was gifted a SICK Coach bag as a thank you. I've been in & out of bars (which I NEVER do!). I saw Jeff Dunham in Philly with my family. I partied it up at a gay bar in celebration of my friend Ryan's 30th birthday two nights AFTER he & I shut Don Pablo's down by consuming dos pitchers of margaritas. I've reconnected to with several old pals that I have been too much of an antisocial homebody to go out with for several years..

I haven't seen my pillow before midnight in 15 consecutive days but I have been SO much happier..

The downside? I get through almost the entire day 100% OP only to have a diet & vodka followed usually by not OP at all in any way, shape or form items. It's hard to balance the restrictions of the plan with being adventurous & spontaneous but I am trying still..

I have no one to blame but me for wasting time eating Medifast if I am not 100%ing it but I have not been this freaking happy in YEARS..

Before my exfiance, I was this busy all the time. It's really nice to connect with my 20 year old self again. I have been double & triple booking myself with friends since plans change constantly but so far so good..

Here's tipping my glass of ice cold Cranberry Mango fruit drink meal to you all! Which does NOT taste like either cranberry or mango just as.

Xtina.

Said!..

ROFL @ your dig at the Cranberry Mango! If I drink it as is, I drink it as fast as I can because I think it is on the yuck side. However, mixed with a sugar-free Koolaid packet, it is pretty good!.

I'm glad you are happy, Ashlee...

Morning Lovelies!!!.

Glad you're not too hung over.

Ashlee.

And that you're having fun and enjoying life!.

Hey.

Carolyn, Merzzie and Tiffany.

It's so pretty today. We just went for a walk. I really don't have much planned today of course there's plenty I could do, but nothing I have to do...so I'm just going to enjoy it. The weekend looks busy busy...

Merzzie.

- How are your pet seamonkeys doing??.

I thought of this while in the shower today!..

Comment #62

Morning, glories!.

Ash.

, I love seeing you so happy. LOVE it..

I had big plans to "stay social" last night, and I ended up watching basketball at ryan's and falling asleep at 9:45. which was awesome in it's own way!..

Comment #63

I'm such an introvert! I have come to avoid most social situations unless I can't get out of them!..

Comment #64

This just reminded me that we bought a kit for Iz for Christmas but haven't tried it yet. She's freaked out by the pix on the box!..

Comment #65

Wow, this day has FLOWN by. Pretty busy at work this week..

Carolyn- Roller Derby is meh. I LOVE the girls and I am enjoying myself, but it's frustrating to not be improving as fast as I'd like. I have my own "special" drills at practice where I practice things like stopping and skating and all of the other girls do jumps and other stuff. I know I just need more practice, but I wish it would come quicker. I'm not giving up or anything, just aggravated with myself..

Ashlee- yay for staying social! Thats's an awesome plan! Your month sounds amazing..

Hi Heather!.

Ash- LOL on thinking about my seamonkeys! They are doing GREAT! The mated while I was on vacation, sad that I wasn't there to see it, but when I came back there were 3 pregnant monkeys! You can tell because the have egg sacs on their bodies. My coworker took care of them while I was gone and did a great job..

Hi Taylor!.

Heather- She has a Sea-monkey kit and hasn't started it yet? WOW, I started mine as soon as possible...

Comment #66

Aw, Merz, I'm sorry you are aggravated with yourself. Do you have perfectionist tendencies??..

Comment #67

Hey ladies! I had to come share with my Pin Up muffins....I got some news today that started out like this:.

"Dear Sheila,.

Congratulations! Your Nchol Froce clothing line has been selected by our committee to be showcased at Little Rock Fashion Week 2011 in Little Rock, AR.".

No, I'm not AT ALL excited or anything. Just some news I thought I would share..

Off the backread..

Comment #68

YAY SHEILA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so super cool! Congrats!.

I've been a bad pin up... absent all week.

From the boards....

I'm ticked.. in 4 weeks I have lost 4 lbs.... not very happy. I know some of you will say a loss is a loss.. but still it freakin IRKS me!..

Comment #69

Thats super cool Ashlee! I envy your new social life.. I am a dud these days, well Tanners social life is my life!!.

He had a guitar concert at school last night ! It was great.. hes doing well at it.. hes been choosing all his freshman courses.. and he has decided to do the IB program.. I am nervous about it but the counselors all think he can do it.. he got a 3.875 this trimester...

Hes just going to have to work so super duper hard.. I am nervous, did I say that already LOL! Plus with Football and wrestling and a grueling sports schedule,,,well he wants to try- he'll be taking 3 honors classes plus biology and he started algebra today so he can do geometry his frosh year ( I was a horrible student.. managed to graduate.. so was hubs.. so this is CRAZY to us..).

Merz- sorry you are not catching on as quick as you'd like, you'll get it!..

Comment #70

Charla, I'm sorry about the slow losses. I know how frustrating that is. Have you been 100% OP?..

Comment #71

Thanks divas!!! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself.

Aww, Merzzie. Carolyn mentioned perfectionist tendencies...hmmm...maybe you?!?.

I understand that though. Don't be so hard on yourself and just enjoy the ride! I know that has got to be fun!.

Charla, you already know how our bodies get at times. Don't stress. There's going to be a week that will surprise the hell out of you so give it time, chica. And wow! Tanner is a busy dude (and smart too)! If he's up for the challenge I'm sure he will succeed..

Carolyn, I am so loving your hair!!!.

Ashlee, from your FB posts these days, I figured you were kicking it on a major scale. HA! Have fun, girl!! Now that's how your single life should be..

Taylor, what's up mami!!!.

Did I miss anyone??.

I'll be posting my March giveaway Sunday! Be sure to check it out! Might be something you may like to have...

Comment #72

Well.. I had a few blt's not much..but a little, besides that yes...

I'll try to not get too frustrated and hope for a big loss this week!.

Thanks She... he's my babe!.

OOOHHHH another giveaway!!..

Comment #73

Um, saying that would probably be an understatement..

Sheila- I am having fun, but I know I would have MORE fun if I was better..

Sheila- OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Charla- why does it irk you? Are you in a race? If you are on plan, the weight WILL come off. Might not be as fast as you like it, but instead of focusing on the scale focus on the wonderful things you are doing for your body!.

~Tough Love~Also, if you aren't 100% on plan you shouldn't be upset about your loss not being bigger. YOU prevented yourself from losing as much as possible. There's no way of knowing how much you would have lost if you were on plan...

Comment #74

Yes Mer! I kinda am in a race lol! I want to win the $$ on the biggest loser thing at my dads work.. this next thurs they are giving away $75 for the 1st to date and $25 to 2nd.. then 600 in May! So yeah.. kinda!.

Yeah I suppose.. but I mean a lick off a spoon here and there ( and really only a couple) shouldnt have affected me THIS much I wouldnt think? My L&G are perfect and I am having all 5 meals.. and I've been exercising.. not tons, but some..

Last time I rarely had a 1 lb loss.. never 4 weeks in a row.. usually 2-3 lbs a week and I am doing nothing different.. just frustrating. It sucks to see $300 help you lose 4 lbs..

Thats prob my main complaint.... oh well I guess it is what it is.....

Comment #75

Happy Saturday! I know this thread goes quiet on the weekends, but I've been out of touch for over a week and thought I better get back on board!!!! It's been a crazy past two weeks. I think last I was here was right before March 8th when my 14 year old daughter experienced an anaphylactic shock when we were exercising at our gym! We ended up at Urgent Care, transported to ER and admitted for an overnight stay! Next week we meet with an allergist because we don't know what caused it. It may very well have been chemicals the gym uses to clean the equipment.... Her blood pressure dropped so low that the nurse couldn't find her pulse! She was swollen head to toe and her eyesight got really sketchy! She said that she was seeing like a reversed exposure flourescent and than everything went black briefly. This was all very scary! They put her on benydryl and prednisone. We got home Weds afternoon (3/9).



Glad to be back....so last weekend through Tuesday my 3 kids and I spent some time in sunny San Diego, then Disneyland! Sooooo proud that I didn't gain a lb! I have to admit that I didn't pass up some of the indulgences but I stayed cautious. My daughter couldn't get enough of in-n-out Burger and I discovered the protein burger which is a patty wrapped in lettuce! I posted a bunch of the wedding pics on my facebook. You can find me at joy maloff-jara The profile pic is myself and my kids when we first got into Disney..

Weighed in today, after having not weighed for over a week and I dropped 1 lb. YAY! I know that I could have dropped more by this point, but I'm pleased that I didn't gain, so I'll take that. Back to 100% OP and looking forward to a successful month and hopefully getting close to goal..

I have a couple of questions if anyone can help me:.

1. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make the choc mint soft serve taste better? It's pretty much the only Medifast meal that I don't like and I have 2 boxes!.

2. I'm making pancakes for the first time....any suggestions on how not to ruin them?.

3. I woke up with a soar throat, congestion and just not feeling so hot....how might this affect my weight loss if I find that I'm actually coming down with some upper respiratory crap?.

Have a beautiful Saturday!.

Joy..

Comment #76

HI Joy! I am so sorry about your daughter- how scary! I had this happen to me a few times in cali- they called it versa vaga syncope? I hope that you can figure out what caused it for your daughter- very scary!!!!.

Awesome job on los8ing the 1lb while on vaca YOU ROCK!!!!!!!.

I added 1 tsp of pb to my shake and that made it taste good!.

I wouldnt use any liquid nyquil type products totally stalled me....

Ashley makes mini waffles out of her pancakes- me I just make one big one in a pan sprayed with pam....

I hope you feel better! I'll look for you on Facebook!..

Comment #77

Thanks Charla, I just started reading about the versa.....She had some of those same symptoms but never lost consiousness...and didn't have nausea. They were pretty sure it was an allergic reaction...I'm going to read more about it though and talk to the doc when we see her next week. Thanks again!.

Not sure whether it's easy or difficult to find me on FB. My name isn't common though. If you need to find it via email...id it's.



What is your FB name?.

Talk to you soon.

Ps The pancake turned out fine...I made it in one big pan AT THE SAME TIME THAT I WAS MAKING MY BOYFRIEND A BIG FAT CORNBEEF SANDWICH! lol.

I'm staying away from the cold meds... just taking Aleve... Enjoy the Sunshine!!!! It's so pretty outside today..

Comment #78

I hope you get it all figured out Joy.. it is scary stuff to black out. I checked out you and your fam on facebook! You are all so cute! Your kids are beautiful!! Where do you live?.

In Cali?.

How are you feeling today? I've been bored , hung out at home all day....

So Tanners helium balloon my Mom sent to the hotel for wrestling that we brought home somehow escaped the house last night or this am and was in.

AMY'.

S yard LOL!.

Tanner went and got it.. it's Coopers favorite toy now that hes overcome his fear of balloons.

Comment #79

Hi everyone, I was hoping to join the group. I have been on plan for two weeks and am down 6lbs so far : ) As a fairly shy person I decided that at the same time I work on my wieght loss I needed to work on letting my inner vixen out as well. Plus one of my major goals is to be able to rock the pinup/retro look this summer when my best friend and I go to Memphis in Aug for Elivs week...

Comment #80
