I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..

Comment #1

Good Morning PUGs!!!.

Just a quick drive-by for me. I'm off to the allergist this morning..

Also...it is fareeeeezing here! It's showing 3 degrees on my little temp gauge gadget on my computer. Three degrees..

And I couldn't find Ivan's mittens this morning so I feel like a big jerk sending him to school without mittens. I found them right after he left. J's friend used them Saturday when they went outside. Bad mama!!! Oh well, he just goes from the bus into the school, then back again..

Well, I'm off chicas! I'll try to check in later. mwah! (that's a kiss for you!)..

Comment #2

Morning ladies! I'm still not feeling 100%, but am WAY better than I was on Friday. Saturday I completely lost my voice, but still went to the roller derby. SO much fun! I REALLY want to take skating lessons and try out for the team..

Had a very low-key weekend. Lots of sleeping and soup..

From backreading-.

Sandi- maybe toss the chocolates in the freezer for you for maintenance?.

A couple years ago we bought my dad one of the Mr. Beer kits. Best present we had ever gotten him! He's a pharmacist so really into the sciencey aspect of it..

Congrats to everyone on their weight loss!..

Comment #3

Good Morning Ladies.

Have fun Dawn- Im sure Ivan will be fine.

Does he get outside time at school? probably to cold today.

I coughed until 12:30 last night and finally got up and rubbed some vapo rub on my chest and what do ya know it helped, I didnt cough at all after that. Thank goodness because I would have been pooped. I am so ready to be over this cold crap..

Comment #4

Morning ladies!! I have to catch up from last week but boo Monday. That's all I got for now...

Comment #5

Hi Dawn, Amy, and Christina!.

Amy- I tried vapor rub for the first time on Saturday, I don't think it helped me that much, but it does tingle!..

Comment #6

I dont dis-like Mondays but I really could have slept longer this morning, I sure hope work doesnt suck this week the lady I usually work with will be gone all week..

Comment #7

So my inept boss's boss just sent me an e-mail that had the entire corporations salaries listed on it in the forwarded e-mails below. Probably should have deleted that before sending it. I now know that 2 younger engineers makes more than me (by $750.00), an engineer that is my age makes WAY too much compared to the engineers at my facility (this kid makes 7500 MORE than our engineering manager), and that one of my accountant coworkers (who our boss has called useless on a regular basis) makes 5k more than me. I also know that most people at my company make peanuts compared to what their peers are making elsewhere. One of the hardest working people I know has been here 20 years and makes 1k more than me, way less than the sales team she supports..

What do I do with this information? Do I ask for a raise? Do I keep my mouth shut? Do I continue looking for employment elsewhere because I know that we are shizzy payers?.

Hey Ashlee!..

Comment #8

Good morning ladies.

Merz I'm glad you're feeling better!.

Dawn he will be fine, I hope you both have a great week at school! Did you ever get all your courses sorted out?.

Amy get better and hang in there....

My husband loves the homebrewing, he often has several batches going at once, all different types, all carefully labeled and he records everything about each brew, and his refrigerator is full of beer... good thing beer isn't my weakness..

As for me, my officially weigh-in is tomorrow, but the weekend went great and I've unofficially lost 6 pounds.

Also, by being so well hydrated, I actually had to get up when my alarm went off (instead of snoozing for an hour) because I had to pee so bad. So I actually got to have breakfast, I did CodyJo's breakfast sandwich. That woman deserves a medal. If you haven't seen her recipes check out the recipe board..

Time to get ready for class... since I've dropped PDE's in favor of computations, my MWF starts earlier. Yay MATLAB. Nonstop class/lab work from 9am to 6pm, then I get to do homework. At least I have food covered and don't have to worry about what crap I'm going to eat today..

Comment #9

Laserhen=Sandi? is that right.

Thanks I am sure trying, I am feeling alot better just trying to get this yucky stuff out of my chest..

Comment #10

Morning Frosty Foxes!.

It is so cold here too.

Dawn.

..it was 9 last I checked, now it's up to a balmy 12. I'm sure Ivan won't have outside recess..it's way too cold. Iz asked me if she should wear her gloves today and I said "YEAH". She routinely goes to school w/out socks though but today she had on Uggs to keep her feet toasty..

Mer.

Did you get a strep test? I'm glad you are feeling better! Knowing that kind of confidential info is a double edged sword, you don't really want to know that some people make more than you do and don't deserve it, but you can use it to leverage yourself a raise and/or get more money in your next employment..

Yay.

Charla.

For sticking to Medifast and no beer!!.

Amy.

Your night at the fun center sounded like....well Fun!.

I was feeling blah on Saturday (bad sinus headaches) but yesterday I felt a lot better and cleaned the house, organized a bunch of paperwork and was feeling more productive all around. I'm still working on mountains of paper and trying to declutter my kitchen. We got a cute little desk for my Mac and I'm working on it now..

Ri has a sore throat and a cough and an extremely busy week. I hope it doesn't get worse. She has her induction into NHS on Wed. night. We are all going to that..

My mom is doing really well. My sis is going w/ her to the docs tomorrow to get her stapled out and she'll be able to drive after that too. My bro has been going over a lot too so it's been much more equitable lately...

Comment #11

A hearty good moooooorning to my pinup sisters!.

*off to backread*..

Comment #12

Hi Heather!.

I did not get a strep test but I have no white spots in my throat. And it's feeling a little better. It hurt SO bad Fri night/Saturday morning. I looked online at 3am for remedies and found one that said gargle with vinegar. I tried it, helped a little. It hurt so bad that if a reputable source had said that gargling urine would cure a sore throat I would have done it..

Glad your mom is doing well! Yay for a new desk!.

Hey Taylor! You need to remove the * from your siggy...

Comment #13

I'm sure i've missed a lot in the last couple weeks, but i'll try to catch up as I go!.

Mer.

- awesome that you made it to the roller derby and are thinking of trying out! will your name be nightMER?.

Sorry you're still not feeling 100%. almost everyone I know has been sick at some point in the past few weeks. as for the job situation...i'd keep looking anyway because I know you want something different, but as long as you're there, you may as well ask for a raise! the worst they could do is say no. go for it..

Morning,.

Ash.

,.

Heather.

,.

Dawn.

And.

Amy.

! I get a chill just reading about the frigid temps where you live. when I check the local weather, they always reference the northeast at some point, saying "sure it's cold down here (30s/40s), but at least it's not THAT cold!".

Laser.

, way to go on your loss! i'm taylor, 28, nonprofit consultant in austin, dating ryan, no kids, no pets. nice to meet you!..

Comment #14

Thanks, mer..

All fixed!.

AFM: this year has gotten off to a pretty nutty start. I had that wicked stomach flu which knocked me out for about 5 days. then I was starting to get better, and right before MLK weekend, I got some other kind of flu. was running fever for almost a week, achey, major congestion... which turned into bronchitis. it's been pretty ridiculous.



During all that, I was.

Still.

Trying to do my shows and keep up with rehearsals. I had four shows last week, which all went really well! I only have two in the next two weeks, so I can take it easy for a few days. it's been really fun, though. on top of that, work has been insane. my research project is ramping up, and i've been doing focus groups for the last week. i'm getting good data, and i'm just ready to right the dang report and get it out there!.

I've missed you gals!!!!!!!!..

Comment #15

Morning!.

Glad you are feeling better Mer.

Heather- I missed last week, what happened wit yo mama?.

Amy- Boo on the cough.

Dawn- You are a wonderful mama, and burrrrr 3 degrees? ef that!.

I had a wonderful weekend minus my baby being sick all day and night Friday, he broke his fever saturday morning and actually had an appetite (you know he is really sick if he doesnt eat LOL) so he wanted to stay at my mama's house and I went out. I had a blast, seriously just walking into the bar/club, all eyes were on us. We had all the men all around us, it was kinda funny. One of them called me a suckerfish (not sure why) but I'm guessing because all of his friends tried to get at me at least once and I wasnt having it. It was like a chocolate factory tho.

I was really good and I looked HOT! Not to be all into myself or anything lol..

Then, yesterday just lounged with a bratty kid, omg! He was such a brat, he made some marshmallow disappears for his daddy..

Comment #16

Melly.

My mom had knee replacement surgery. Sounds like you had an awesome time the other night.

Suckerfish.

Lol!!! Good for you!!! Glad Alex is feeling better!! My kids are the same way, I know they are truly sick if they can't eat!!.

Ok..I am really going to work out now...

Comment #17

Sorry everyone has been so sick lately! Hope everyone feels better..

Tay.

- *GLOMPS* Glad you are back! Missed ya sister! And I love your suggested Roller Derby name for.

Mer.

! I also think you have inspired me to join an improv training class that I have always eyed but was too uncourageous to take..

Sandi.

- Glad all of your Sig Others are on board with your new healthy eating plan! And good for you not being tempted by beer, neither am I, though I would appreciate the chemistry side of the home beer brewing too. I am another person who can relate to inability to eat just one of ANYTHING, so if you ever want support to survive a moment, I am here for you! I was also excited that the constellation Orion is your hands-down star group too! Any reason for that for you? For me, it was a comfort growing up to locate it and know that it's there any time of year...

Comment #18

Taylor-.

I was actually thinking my name would be NightMerz (I think I posted that here awhile back).

There is a national registry and it can't be too similiar to someone else's name, so I might have to modify it..

Sorry to hear you've been sicky too, glad you are feeling better!.

YAY for your shows going well!.

Hi Melly!.

Poor Alex!.

Of course you got hit on at a club, you are one HOT princess!..

Comment #19

Welcome back Taylor.

Awesome Melly, sounds like a blast minus the grumpy kiddo..

NightMerz (pronounced nightmares).

2. Besides this thread are there any other threads or forums on Medifast that you visit regularly?.

I would write about my doggies..

4. Have you ever made a sock monkey?.

Nope but for some reason I have ALWAYS loved them and wanted to. I recently bought a sock weiner dog and unicorn. Sometimes I think giving a credit card to me is like giving one to a 8 year old girl..

, do it! it's so fun. it's pretty much my therapy. the theater where I take classes has 8-week terms, and when they're done, they do a week's worth of free workshops for people to just come and check it out. they're so much fun because most people are just there to try something new, or to be silly, and then some get totally hooked and never stop taking classes! like me..

Hey,.

Melly.

A little girl with a magic telescope, and whatever she sees through the lens, she's instantly transported there.

I haven't! I think they're hilarious, though. I almost got a sock monkey making kit at a white elephant...but it got stolen. boooo!.

Random favor-.

Could one of you check out this site:.

Random:.

We always pick out Orion when we're out in the hot tub. It's been really nice lately...just a bear getting in!.

Iz and I made sock monkeys over the summer and I have some left over socks from the project. We didn't make as many as we thought we would. Hopefully we'll go back to it...

Comment #30

Thanks Amers!!.

I'm debating whether or not to go to TurboKick today. I've heard that if you have chest congestion you shouldn't workout. Any thoughts?..

Comment #31

Merz my advice is to not, last night I got busy and couldnt breathe, then I coughed for hours.

Should I or should I not go to the Dr. for my sickness, it's been 12 days? my SIL is worried I'll get pneumonia..

Comment #32

Mer.

I couldn't see anything about Fresh Meat either...

Comment #33

Hey Girls! Today has been completely crazy! Just now able to get on. I will try my hardest to backread but am promising nothing!.

Nope Heather, I havent had one since last week, I just have this weezy cough. If I had Medical Insurance I would go, but I am torn because I dont want to pay $100. for them to just say your fine see ya later..

Comment #35

Ok. I finally finished backreading between work and phone calls! Whew. I feel like I'm informed now. Hope you're feeling better Mer and Ammers...

Comment #36

Thanks for checking Heather!.

Amy- 12 days is a long time to be sick, has it gotten any better?.

Hey Tiffany! When are you going out with boy?..

Comment #37

Mer- It has gotten better in some ways, it just keeps moving into another part of my body, it started with my throat, then was a sinus thing, then stuff nose/runny eyes, and now it's a cough so I dont know if maybe it's finishing up it's run on my body or what, I am thinking that this is the last step and that it's in my lungs and working it's way out. I dont know Im just sick of it. Last time I was sick for 3 weeks..

Comment #38

Anyways I better get ready for work, Im sure I will live. Im not coughing up anything green yet so most likely no infection LOL..

Comment #39

Roomie Update- I swear, it's like a soap opera. Feel free to skip if you are annoyed by drama!.

So Friday her new bf of 4 days (who she had met in person the preceeding Saturday) told her that he didn't see the relationship going anywhere. Roomie was pretty upset, and said "This always happens, I get my hopes up and then...".

I told her that she gets her hopes up too fast, which she reluctantly agreed..

Me: spending the night the first day you meet someone is NOT taking it slow.

Roomie: *flippantly* people keep telling me that.

M: Probably because it's true.

R: Well I guess I'm just a terrible person.

M: It doesn't make you a bad person, it just means you aren't taking it slow. Spending the night with someone, EVEN if you don't have sex does not mean you are taking it slow, so you can't call it that..

I forget what she said after that, but she mumbled something and retreated to her room..

She went out for pizza that night with a nice boy (friend of a friend who didn't even kiss her on their first date). Then on Saturday she met a boy at a club at the Roller Derby after party. They danced and talked and exchanged numbers..

Last night she went on a date with ClubBoy at Olive Garden, then didn't get home until after midnight (she has to get up at 5:30am for work). She said they drove around and went to Meijers and Walmart together and really just talked but did kiss. Roomie told me this morning that she really likes him, but feels bad because she has a date with another boy to a hockey game on Saturday and he already bought the tickets. I told her that was a GOOD thing because it would help keep her options open and she could date around before falling too hard. She sort of agreed, but I could see the heart bubbles coming out of her head for ClubBoy..

Sometimes I wish I could just shake some sense into her!!..

Comment #40

Morning PinUps!.

1. I know we've had this question before, but it's FUN! What would your roller derby name be?.

I really have no idea. LOL. Normally I would try to do something with Library/Librarian, but I am not sure I am going to be one much longer..

2. Besides this thread are there any other threads or forums on Medifast that you visit regularly?.

Yes, the 2011 One Day at a Time OP Thread. Nice group of people there..

3. If you were in a creative writing class and had to write a short story, what would it be about?.

I've actually been in several creative writing classes and written many short stories. I guess I would do one about a girl who is overly superstitious..

4. Have you ever made a sock monkey?.

No.

5. I want to make a delicious dinner for my friend on Wednesday. She can't eat pork and I want it to be Medifast friendly but add a carb side. What should I make?.

Someone said sweet potatoes and I like that idea. You could always make caulipotatoes. There are really good. I would do chicken and some kind of potato..

BONUS- L&G?.

Tuna salad..

Comment #41

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. I know we've had this question before, but it's FUN! What would your roller derby name be?.

Willameana WHIPLASH or Shleeper Holed (yesss, I made these up just now AND both are not taken!!!!).

2. Besides this thread are there any other threads or forums on Medifast that you visit regularly?.

Recipes - I troll there a LOT & improve upon/tweak existing recipes..

3. If you were in a creative writing class and had to write a short story, what would it be about?.

I'd probably take something that happened in my life, increase the instances of humor & pump it full of puns. The best story I ever submitted to a creative writing class was just that an experience that actually happened but exagerrated with even funnier dialogue..

4. Have you ever made a sock monkey?.

Nope..

5. I want to make a delicious dinner for my friend on Wednesday. She can't eat pork and I want it to be Medifast friendly but add a carb side. What should I make?.

I recommened.

Shredded Salsa Chicken.

Crockpot. When I ate it at my friend's party, it was served over a bed of white rice but I added it to a large bed of lettuce instead. Its very flavorful & Medifast friendly!.

BONUS- L&G?.

In the mood for taco salad..

Comment #42

Hey Carolyn! Are you considering a career change?.

MMM, you gals are making me crave Mexi!..

Comment #43

Merzzz.

, your roomie sounds a lot like a woman I lived with for over a year after we both left our husbands. She had to have a man, and every man she met that she liked, she would jump into a "relationship" with him and be convinced that he was her soul mate. I'm sorry to say she never really changed, at least not while I knew her. She is a FB friend now, but we don't really talk anymore. People like that have to want to change and be willing to work to change..

Tiffany.

, a date? Tell me more! I feel out of the loop given my absence over the last 2 weeks...

Comment #44

Merzz.

, yep, I started coursework this semester to get certified to teach the deaf. I'm hoping to start as a teacher of the deaf for the 2011 - 2012 school year on a provisional license which will allow me to continue and complete my coursework while already working in the field...

Comment #45

Merz.

- I really liked your RD name question! It got me thinking.

Tay.

- I am gonna see which classes at the local improv in Philly start..

Wish me luck! No, not luck wish me courage! And I hope you like the shredded salsa chicken! I sure do!..

Comment #46

Well Ladies I am heading out here in just a minute. Hope you all have a great day I will catch up when I get home this afternoon..

Comment #47

Hi Ladies,.

I stayed home today. I felt cruddy last night and today I woke up with a fever. SO I stayed home and slept all morning. I felt good enough to to come down on the couch. My hip was bothering me staying in bed..

I am sure I picked up the fever from the many little devils that have been sick...

Comment #48

Hope you feel better,.

Katie.

..

Amy.

, have a great day!.

Ashley.

, as soon as I get paid, I'm trying the salsa chicken!! I only get paid once a month, on the last working day of the month. In December, it was the 17th because of Winter Break. January, it is the 31st. So it will have been 6 weeks between paychecks!!!! I am so broke...

Comment #49

Whew...backreading!! Y'all are chatterboxes!!.

Mer-I'm glad you're feeling somewhat better. The raise thing....I'm not sure. I do know I'd be pi**ed though. You are pretty assertive, I see you figuring out how to wrangle a raise out of this information..

AmyI love vaporub! It always helps me. And Ivan won't be outside today I'm sure. I just felt bad about not covering his hands. It's COLD..

SandiI tentatively have my schedule set. The chem class is still full, but I've been emailing the prof, and she said it would be okay for me to come to class tomorrow. She also asked for my grades so that she could save me a spot over someone who may not be right for the class. Which is good, because I got As in chem and both bio classes. As for brewing, I'm a kombucha freak and always have a batch on the counter. It looks gross and people get weirded out by it.



MellyOf course you were the center of attention! You hawt!! Sorry Alex was sick. I know what you mean about the appetite thing. I get worried when either of my boys stops eating. Because they are constantly eating..

Hey Ash! Hello Heather!! and anybody else I may have missed (Tiffany, Taylor, Katie, Carolyn...)..

Comment #50

Carolyn- wow, that is AWESOME!! Good for you!!!.

Thanks Ashlee!.

Good luck and courage for improv! What do you have to lose?.

Hi Katie! Hope you feel better soon, being sick is no fun!.

HEY DAWN!.

Hopefully you will get into your Chem class!!..

No.

- I have nothing to lose! That's a good point. I love everything about Improv, always have but I think everyone else is funnier than I am. I will give it a shot & if nothing else, I have made some new friends..

I was pulled up as a volunteer for the Improv team that performed on our cruise ship in September of 2009 & it was very very fun. I have to get over this mindset where being "the fat girl" holds me back from doing things that I think only normal people get to do, like perform on stage. Hopefully joining an improv class is a step in the right direction...

- Love your RD names! And in response to last week's thread comment about hearing all the PUG's voices if you ever wanna hear my voice, you gots my numba yo!.

I am a chatty mcchatterson, so consider yourself warned!..

- I'd like to throw my support in the ring regarding you potentially starting roller derby! I think it would be AWESOME for you! It's a great competitive sport which appeals to your nature & at your height plus skates, you would kick some MAJOR booty girl!..

Comment #55

I can't roller skate, otherwise I would love to do Roller Derby! Paint me a lil' jealous..

I have so many things to say but I can't keep track of them! I'll just summarize it by saying I love you all!..

- WOW! 6 weeks between paychecks would have me hurting for money too. That must be hard. One of my FAVORITE things about the salsa chicken is the price! I bought one bag of frozen chicken breasts for about $6.99 at Wal-Mart & the offbrand medium LARGE jar of salsa at Wal-Mart for $2.29. For less than $10, I had enough "Lean" for over 6 different L&G meals AND my roomie ate a couple bowls of it over white rice!.

Walmart also sells a bag of frozen chopped green peppers for about a $1.50, I add that too for extra "green"...

- *tackles* You gotta do better than that!!! I need my daily dose of specific & hilarious commentary from Death Muffin!!!!..

Comment #58

Thanks Ashlee!.

Christina- I can't skate either, yet. I called and left a message at a rink that they recommended for lessons on my lunch. I am currently atrocious on quad skates (inline I do okay). I can't even skate one lap without holding the railing. I talked in depth to the coach (she is Kristie's friend and I met her at Kristie's bday party) and she said that most of the girls didn't know how to skate first and had to take lessons. I also asked her "be honest, is there hope for me? Because if I'm hopeless I don't want to waste time and money on this.

She actually saw me skate and told me that with lessons I would be fine.

Ashlee- There are a ton of overweight comedians! How could you think fat people don't take improv?..

Comment #59

In other news, I told my boss that his boss send out the payroll information with names and salaries to me. He was shocked, but knows there is nothing to be done now. He's also peeved that now my predecessor who is in Germany knows what everyone makes. I think he was more bothered by that than by me knowing..

He said that he would mention it to his boss. We talked a little more about other stuff, and then he said that he would e-mail his boss to let him know that he just sent out salary information and that it would freak him out. I said (as I was leaving), "yeah, tell him I want a raise now." He sarcastically said "yeah"..

So at least I said something, but it was in a manner that could have been joking......

- That's encouraging about you + roller skates! As for me not thinking chubby people do Improv, it was more I didn't WANT to do anything where I am on-stage at my heaviest weight bc it was effects the kinds of jokes I can go for I am really good at self-depricating humor as a defense mechanism, but would like to explore humor that doesn't involve making fun of myself. I admire evry single one of the heavier comedians/comediennes for having the guts to get up there & let it all hang out sometimes literally!..

Amy.

It might be working it's way out of you. It kind of sounds that way and if you don't have a fever and you're not hacking up green stuff, I'd give it another day or so...just not too long! Do you ever use Mucinex?.

Go.

Mer.

With your boss! That's pretty funny!!.

Tiffany.

Yay for a date!..

Comment #62

I wanna do RD so so so badly. It's just too far from me now. It's about an hour away, and I'd need to go to practice 3 times a week, not even factoring in the travel for matches. I keep checking the local website to see if they maybe branch out this way, but so far nothing..

I was talking to Mark last night about me and working out, you know, like why I like the things I like. I came to the conclusion I just have this inner aggression in me that needs to come out somehow. I mean, I taught karate, did boxing, want to do roller derby. I believe in exercise as therapy, lol!!!.

MerI think your sorta joke to your boss at least plants the seed for him, you know? Then he won't be blindsided when you present your awesome case on "Why I Deserve a Raise" by Mer..

AshI think you should be on the lookout for a phone call soon. Just not today cuz it's CRAZY up in here!..

Comment #63

Christina- I had totally forgotten about your hair cut (thanks Heather!)!.

Did you get your bangs?.

Dawn- Luckily practices are pretty close to me (15 min away), and they only have 4-5 away bouts a year, which I totally took into consideration! Of course all of this is a moot point if I can't learn to skate. They have another fresh meat in the fall but I am HOPING that the spring fresh meat starts later rather than sooner. After seeing a bout, I REALLY want to do it!!.

As for exercise- maybe check and see if there are any leagues near you? For example, we have a Toledo Sport and Social Club that has leagues for volleyball, basketball, softball, touch football and even dodgeball!..

MONDAY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY!.

1. I know we've had this question before, but it's FUN! What would your roller derby name be?.

Death Muffin was my original....but I would also consider Afraidiation, (Isotope..hee hee), Cancer Cupcake, Patty Nuke hmmm...I'll think of more..

2. Besides this thread are there any other threads or forums on Medifast that you visit regularly?.

Nope.

3. If you were in a creative writing class and had to write a short story, what would it be about?.

A fairy tale. A funny one!.

4. Have you ever made a sock monkey?.

Nope.

5. I want to make a delicious dinner for my friend on Wednesday. She can't eat pork and I want it to be Medifast friendly but add a carb side. What should I make?.

I made a one pot meal recepie from a website with groud turkey, taco seasoning, real American cheese (the Deluxe stuff that's lower carb), and cabbage. Super easy...just cook until everything is done and the cabbage is soft. Gave the baby and my hubby some taco shells and they were uber happy with it while I made some lettuce wraps out of it for me..

BONUS- L&G?.

Salad with some cheese? Maybez? Dunno yet...

Comment #65

LOL!! So busy today. I'll be way more on my game tomorrow!..

Comment #66

Christina's bangs are super dee duper cute...or cayute!!! They bring out her sexyful eyes!!.

MerI don't really know that a sport sport would be for me. I'll check it out though. I don't really know where to start. I looked at meetup.com for my area and there's nothing there. Maybe I'll punch in leagues and look for my zip...

Comment #67

Dawn- I was thinking that you would be good at dodgeball..

It's a sport that almost everyone played a couple times but no one really excels at dodgeball. It's not like volleyball or basketball where most people in adult leagues played in HS (I'm assuming and know somewhat from experience)...

Comment #68

My picture from facebook. Still getting use to having to style them....definitely more maintenance..

Thanks Dawn! My hubby actually likes them too. Wasn't sure what he would think initially but he keeps telling me how pretty I look so I think I'm good to go..

Edit: Sorry the pic is so big!!..

Comment #69

Christina- LOVE YOUR BANGS!! Seriously, they look really awesome. I'm not just saying that. They look good on you...

Comment #70

What's everyone up to tonight?.

I'm skipping TurboKick (still got a lot of congestion in my chest). J and Roomie have class, so it was going to be just me and the puppies but J called to tell me that he is skipping tonight. Normally I don't approve of that, but I'm really looking forward to cuddling on the couch with him..

So instead of eggbeaters, we are having salmon, YUM!..

Comment #71

Thanks Mer! The consensus has been very positive thus far. I may have to keep them for awhile...

Comment #72

Well ladies, time for me to go, have a super awesome night!..

Comment #73

Xtina.

- I <3 your bangs! You look awesome...

Comment #74

For me tonight:.

Going home to relax for a little bit then I'm running tonight. Probably going to do the last day of Week 2. I was going to run on Saturday but I got a flat tire on my way home from work. Major bummer. Got 3 "new" used tires put on the car on Sunday. (Used because we're not sure if we're keeping the car for much longer.

Not willing to sink money into something I'm not going to keep.) But I digress, I missed my day 3 so I'll be doing it tonight and I think I'm going to try to go to Week 3 on Wednesday. :.

: Freaking out a little about that but I'm going to go for it anyways. Bought some Spiderman reusable boo-boo packs at the Dollar Store for my shins after I run. Definitely trying to avoid them getting too "splinty". Then I'm still working on my homework. Final paper for my class is due Wednesday. So that pretty much sums it up. I'm sure I'll get stuck watching wrestling with my husband, in one form or another, sometime tonight as well...

Comment #75

Ash- Everytime someone says bangs, I think of this:.

Comment #76

Me tonight:.

Leaving in about 1/2 hr to pick up J from his friend's house. Then the boys are off to swim. Then home to cook dinner, give treatment to Ivan, bathe my dirty little rugrats, put them to bed, then get ready to unload the heavy ish Mark is bringing home from Ikea tonight, then get ready for school tomorrow!.

We just got a new tv for downstairs. The old one is having some funky color/blurring issues, and Mark is whining a LOT about it when he plays xbox. It's a 55 inch LED. So he is going to Ikea tonight after work to get the platform for it and we got some nifty shelving for alongside it...

Comment #77

Well the fever broke yeah..now just left with a nasty headache. I am sure that I will be fine tomorrow. I really need to be better tomorrow. 1. I have a huge to do list at work from being out of the office last week at meetings. 2.

3. I hate being sick..

I get sick very rarely now with Medfast but occasionally I get something odd. I was around a lot of people on Friday and the there was no hot water for washing hands. I didn't have my handy-dandy sanitaizer with me. NOT fun washing hands with cold water..

I did great at horse expo on Friday. I was tempted a few times but staying OP and getting to goal is way more important to me than food. I think my mindset to food is changing. What is funny is that I did have to bake some cookies and I have figured out how skinny people do it. They take a bit, chew a few times and spit it out. That gave me the clue of the taste of the cookie and consistency but it didn't go down the hatch.

Popped a stick of gum into my mouth right afterwards. That is pathetic but my cookie taster was not here. (Hubby)..

Comment #78

1. I know we've had this question before, but it's FUN! What would your roller derby name be?.

I have no idea. I would LOVE to do roller derby. I skated tons growing up but the closet roller skating rink is to hours away..

2. Besides this thread are there any other threads or forums on Medifast that you visit regularly?.

Daily Weighers. I also read Behavioral support because it has helped me..

3. If you were in a creative writing class and had to write a short story, what would it be about?.

I love doing creative writing. Mine would be adventures of Tuggy the Super Boxer. I would write how Tug's (My dog) goes on missions to help the dogs and cats in need of help. I have a bunch that I have written but they haven't gone far. Just my writing..

I inherited creative writing skills from my mom..

4. Have you ever made a sock monkey?.

No but I want one for my office..

5. I want to make a delicious dinner for my friend on Wednesday. She can't eat pork and I want it to be Medifast friendly but add a carb side. What should I make?.

I love making the salsa chicken. I sometimes use a can of Rotel tomatoes to add a kick. For the people that can eat carbs I add white rice. It is also real cheap to make. I might make it in a couple of days..

BONUS- L&G?.

Um..leftover turkey tacos, and making aspargus..
