That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..
Good morning all,.
I hope everyone is doing well this morning..
Lori ~ It was nice seeing you yesterday..
Ang ~ I hope your butt is getting better every day! That's not something I say everyday...perhaps I'll start..
Andi; Kori; Andrea; and Miss Lara ~ Hi all! I hope all is well and you guys aren't working too hard. Kori ~ Congrats on the scale; Andi ~ Water; water; water! Andrea ~ I hope you're feeling better..
Barb ~ I'm sorry about 1/2 of the twins. Does the doctor think the little guy has 'cat scratch fever' or does he think the antibiotics will keep it at bay? I'm glad your DD took him in when she did..
Sandy ~ I'm glad you had enough of the baby toe to paint..
Jo ~ I'll be stalking you on FB. I'll continue to pray for you. I'm with everyone else...we love you and want to know how you're doing. If Lori restricted this thread to strictly M.F., she'd have thrown me off here by now..
Darlene ~ How's Timmy? Your last post didn't sound good..
Erin ~ I miss ya. Sorry studies are such a beotch..
I feel like I'm missing someone...hmmm..
I don't have much new to report. Nevan and Nathan have been keeping me busy...trying to mediate for an 18 year old and 4 year old is not easy. They are both so damn stubborn!..
Mission for today:.
To take a good picture of myself! My new avi looks like a mugshot.
Although, I must have gotten into trouble with my shams, cuz I don't seem too disturbed.
"Self-disciplined begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward."..
Good morning Lauri and Lori. Love the quote this morning, it something I still need to work on. I do think about it but too many times still make the wrong decision..
Well my nothing planned day yesterday turned into a three ring circus after work. Took dd's for their eye exam and new glasses, which took forever. The youngest dd was hyped up on something and driving me nuts. The oldest who swore she had already finished all her homework had plenty once we got home and studying for a test was going no where. Also my youngest had decided that she is scared to go ANYWHERE in our house without someone being with her. So needless to say- they all tucked me in bed forst last nightOh and I forgot to mention that the computer was being weird last night and was making me mad.
And my Sat all by myself just got booked with taking my great aunt shopping for a DVD player and hooking it up for her. OK rant done for this morning...
Good morning shams..
Lara - and I thought I had it bad...yuck. Hope today is better..
Morning Ms. Lauri and Capt'n Lori too!.
AFM, happy day are paychecks are in a day early! Don't know why but don't care either...
Miss Lara ~.
I was thinking a tatoo of this a.m.'s quote would be good. I still have room for it. lol.
As for Great Aunt...how 'bout Amazon.com. lol.
Kids! Ugh! Gotta love 'em..
My DD, when I remind her to do her homework, says "you've already told me that 100 times!". But does it get done...NO!..
OOOH! I just got an email from Toys R US...for those of us that are broke...they have LAYAWAY this year for big stuff...bikes, game tables, doll houses, kitchen sets, etc. That's awesome!..
Normally, I'd be all over that...but Social Security sent me a letter saying they overpaid me by $1,000 or so and will be withholding that much...guess when...December! Poo-poo!..
I just ordered a couple of books for Nevan that are personalized...you know the ones...where he, Buddy, and Sissy are actually "in" the story? He'll love 'em...
When I took Nev to preschool the other day, he insisted on showing everyone a picture of he and Sissy (one of those from a booth at the mall). Of course, his idea of "showing" it, is shoving it in the face of anyone near him. Anyway, he shoved it in the teacher's face and she said, "oh, is that your sister? What's her name?". His reply: "Sister" and looked at her like she was an idiot. Poor teach!..
Omg lauri... love all your posts... LOVE the new avi. totally not a mug shot. good luck playing referee. mine starts later today..
Still at home trying to get ready for work, but phone keeps ringing about work... ugh. my kids have off today but I dont..
Hey lara... what a day. I got my new glasses yesterday too but minus the drama. girls are so tough. hope today is better..
Hi lori... love ya captain..

A night with BF is makin me feel much better. nothing like some BCBC at 2 am to cheer a girl up! I'm crazy I know. but I make it work...
Where is that heart smiley when I need it?.
Going to try to get little one to sleep...he's been up since 2 am. This message, combined with Andrea's message, which, from the community page, looks to be from me, is kinda funny..."little one" @ 2 a.m...
Been a long time since I said this but - RUN'S DONE!!!.
This is me happy-being.
My new mantra - stolen from another MF'r but it's mine now....
"I can eat what I want.

"OFF" today and have SO MUCH to do... see you lovelies later!..

BF just sent me the funniest text "you are lucky I love you, cause santa doesnt beleive in you either". yesterday we talked about santa and that I am a scrooge... LOL...
Andi - love the pic. I did not show up when I first looked...
I used to say...I believe in Santa; the Easter Bunny; AND Mr. Right...
I have always adored this picture of you two. So sweet!..
You just ignore her beotchiness and have a GREAT time!.
OOOH! I could put the big butt curse on her. I try to use my powers only for good...not for evil. But I can make exceptions...
And in honor of the.
Marine's 235th Birthday.
Yesterday, I offer the following:.
God is busy right now.
If you don't know GOD, don't make stupid remarks!!!!!!.
A United States Marine was taking some college courses.
Between assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq.
And AfghanistanOne of the courses had a professor who.
Was an avowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU..
One day the professor shocked the class when he came in..
He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "GOD, if you are real, then.
I want you to knock me off this platform... I'll give you exactly 15 min.".
The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes.
Went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am GOD, I'm still waiting.".
It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got.
Out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him,.
Knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold..
The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently..
The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there.
Looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to,.
Noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked,.
"What in the world is the matter with you? Why did you do that?".
The Marine calmly replied,.
"GOD was too busy today protecting America 's.
Soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid.
Stuff and act like an idiot. So He sent me.".
The classroom erupted in cheers!..
That's what I gotz for now..
Much love to you all!..
LOL! You know we would totally be in the cell next to you girl! We got your back!..
Breathe girl! You are starting to sound like me, LOL! Sounds like kids are being very needy. Get some you time in wherever you can. Try and slip away to the gym that way your me time can also be gym time. Sorry the Saturday was ruined...
That is awesome Ang! Money coming early is always a good thing, no matter what the reason!..
Wow! How awesome! Although, I got stuck trying to get through the Kmart line the other day when I had to get to the bathroom. So many people in line, I thought I was going to pee myself!..
Oh, how cute! He will love them for sure!..
LOL! Trust me, the teacher was not surprised or offended. I am sure it's not the first time she has heard that or had it happen and it won't be the last. It still makes me smile when some of my kids tell me their parent's names are Mom and Dad..
Amen to that, my sister friend! You and me, we gotz this!..
Mucho love Andi! Try to enjoy the "OFF" day as much as you can...with the Mirena, and all the busy stuff to do...
THanks for remind me Sandy! I need to post how my week has been going. Will do that right away!.
Hope the group goes okay. If not, let me know, Arizona isn't too far, I can come and smack a beotch if I need to!..
Blessed Veterans Day to everyone. I.
Lauries story about the Marine in class. I will share that one for sure..
Missed checking in for the past few days =(. I had to drive back to La Jolla for reports and films for Timmy and still gathering some today. Both of his last tests showed multiple problems and defects. Truely good news/bad news. We need and wanted answers and cures, but the surgeries to correct are scary. Many decisions to make in the next few...I am grateful that we have the options and choices and calm time to make the decisions right now..
I hope to be good and do my best with my plan and the challenge. I do know that having you all as my Medifast posse cyber friends keeps it all at the front of my mind..
I will be back to check in later today between cha cha's and errands..
Hugs to everyone..
Get that organizing done, you will feel better about it! GLad Jack's face is getting better and the antibiotic is working...
This is so funny! I laughed out loud! Literally!..
You and Timmy are in my thoughts and prayers Darlene!..
OK, I am off to post on the challenge board and then....let the baking begin..
I totally didn't bake last night, opting instead to drag my sister with me to the gym..
Since I have the day off today, I am going to do the baking..
WIll check back in later, hookahs..
Quick check in from work. Does it ever end?..
Quick fly by to say hi and now back to the bathroom cabinet...
Hi lara... I'm thinking it really doesnt end....
Hi darlene.... thinking of you and timmy too..
Kori... enjoy your day off. glad the santa comment made you laugh..
Hi barb and lori at work...
Kori - you are welcome any time and she lives right across the street...
I'll come with Kori and we'll TP her house for you..
Barb-glad to hear GS is doing OK..
Lauri - love the story..
Darlene - sending you a BIG HUG..
I am done with piano practice and daily chat with MOM. Now off to golf. Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing and say hi. Be back later this evening...
Hi and bye from work.....
ANd Andrea it does end one of a few ways:.
1. you hit the lottery;.
2. a rich relative leaves you their mega millions.
3. Bill Gates thinks you rock and want you to be his next philanthropic venture; or.
4. you die (or go senile wherein you won't give a rat's a $ $)..
I'm in. I gotz the leather jacket; the tattoo; and the mug shot!.
Nevan is FINALLY asleep. I think I will follow suit..
Love you all!..
Wow... id be ok with any of those options, but I'm hoping for number 2. I dont play the lotto and in thinkin bill gates would not be impressed with me. senility may work also...
Wow....lauri and lori and ang... we got sandy's back!..
I'm running like a nut..
Late home from work, animals, eat, back out for mani that was supposed to be Sat but I had to change it last minute..
Wowordered my food Tues. morning and got it today. That's really quick...
And spork her lawn with flaming marshmallows....
Don't mess with the Shammies now.....
Wanted to tell everyone to have a good night and I'll catch ya tomorrow. Kori, WTG on all that baking. I could never do that cuz I love that stuff too much...
Outside errands done - on to inside errands - must write a paper - prep first - and write 3-5 slides on anti-anxiety meds... love this never-ending......
But how's this to keep us going - AND slow us down.
OMG... how do YOU stand the smell? never heard of anyone complaining of cookie smell. ????? 12 dozen is a lot. I think I need to make 8 for my exchange in december. did you make them from scratch?? girl, you are amazing!..
My teen is currently mastering the art of procrastination. he just keeps talking about all the work he has to do... oy vey. stop talking and DO something... can I go away someplace quiet and solitary... jail, even a hospital sounds nice. the kind with the quiet padded cell....???..
Fyi... I have decided to make the mock apple crisp for myself for thanksgiving desert and the Medifast brownie for my birthday. thought you all should know... LOL. I bore even myself!..
Heres a NSV story... a woman came to my office who I havent seen in about a year. she kept looking at me wierd and finally said "sorry to stare, but you seem a lot smaller now. what happend?" kinda weird but still nice to hear. I nonchellantly said "oh yeah. I lost some weight." as if it had been no big deal...
I have lost 62 freakin pounds. It should be shouted from a megafone to all!! woo, hoo... go me! ok, I have offically lost my mind!..
Andrea - I found your mind..
Thanks for all of you covering my back. You guys are great. I can think of so many great things we could do..
I like the video. We live right next to the mountains in Tucson and we have an expression - When the mountains are pink, it is time to drink. It goes with the 5:00 somewhere song...
Love all the chatter today..
I will try and post a link to our challenge tomorrow. If I forget, someone pleas kick me so I get it posted. Thanks...
Barb - can you tell where your food came from. Boy that is quick...
Lori - what color are we doing nails this week? I have a 4 week gap before my next appointment. Lady is out of town. So it will be Christmas colors for me next time...
Time to go make my L&G. Be back later. Hope everyone is doing OK. Seems like a busy day in Shammie Land...
Enjoy the mani. You need some happy, relaxing pampering time...
That really is. My next order is coming next Tuesday...
Oooohhh! I have sporked a lawn before but never with flaming marshmallows. I like how you roll, Andi, my dear!..
