Want the latest Medifast Coupons?

Just enter your email address below and we'll send you secret Medifast deals every month.

First off, Any tips on starting the Medifast Diet? Many thanks for any comment. Another question on my mind: Other topics will be discussed that may not be appropriate for the easily offended..

Please discontinue reading Tough Love threads if they are going to cause you to become upset.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++.

Medifast is a wonderful program with many different types of support and a fabulous community. We understand that everyone is an adult and this is not a "mean" group. For some of us, we thrive on this program if we have a place where we are held accountable, where we commit to the program 100% and where we have a place to chat with others who feel the same..

What we believe:.

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

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

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

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

We commit to:.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8. Be honest with ourselves and our Medifast family and to stay 100% OP at all times. We also swear that WHEN (not if) we are having a tough time and feel like we may eat SLUDGE, to come to our Medifast family first and ask for support and help to get us through the struggle..

Getting the banner:.

We accept anyone who follows the Medifast plan 100% as written, but not limited to, the Quick Start Guide. We recommend participating on the team for 1 week prior to requesting the Tough Love Banner to ensure that compliance to our bylaws is do-able for you..

Anyone can start the thread. If youre the first one here in the morning, copy this opening post and create a post for the new day. Anyone is welcome to join, and if folks have additional ideas on how we can commit, we are happy to hear them!.

Good morning,Tough Lovelies! Thanks for the coffee, Cindy!.

GC, I've heard that the only Medifast that might present a problem is the RTD shakes..

I am back down a full two pounds this week, which puts me just about where I was, give or take a tenth of a pound, two weeks ago before I got sick. So, it's not a real WHOOSH, but I'll take it!.

Cindy, I agree about smacking anyone who complains about the heat today! After the winter we've had, 80 degrees is a VERY welcome change, even if it IS gonna be rainy and humid. Note to self: extra goop in the hair today.....

I've taken lots of other foods in my carry ons and as long as it's not liquid had no problem. I fly tomorrow but I sent a box to my dh ahead of time so I'll only carry 5 or 6 bars..


Yippee for losing !.


Yay on your loss also!.

My stomach hurt like heck yesterday, like I'd had lactose which I hadn't. I think it must be stress from having to fly and find a place to live. I am down 2.2 lbs to 178 even for the week, up a tiny bit from a day or two ago. I plan to make sure the bottom level of my house is cleaned up and finish up packing today. Oldest goes to the ortho at 4..

Have a great one everybody!..

I hate flying (to add to the rest), the doctor nicely gives me some Xanax so I don't come unglued during the turbulence. Five hours is a long time to be in a plane.

(it's really inconvenient to hate flying when your husband is a pilot LOL).


I bet next week you'll have a great loss, hope your PMS goes away soon!..

Sorry about the symptoms. Supposedly, I suffer from all of the above as well...sometimes hard for me to recognize until I'm holding a shiv to DH's throat asking what he meant by what he just said?

Anna! Too funny., I feel your pain. What was really horrible for me was when I'd have to fly anywhere when our little guy was a baby/toddler. I'd be stressed about flying, but couldn't take anything...Needed to have my scat together. It's really funny, though. We'd be boarded and (when we could, we'd fly business class) because of his car seat, it was so much easier. But he is all cool as a cucumber...and I am saying Hail Mary's under my breath!. I always tell DH, when we fly, you can tell who the AF Baby is and who the Army Baby is.....

I am not the greatest when we fly either, my doctor gives me zanex or ativan. Both help and make the experience tolerable..

That's funny. My boys also love to fly. I don't mind hauling kids and stuff through the airport, that part I can do.

Yeah, I think he no longer has to use a booster or a car seat any longer, either. Truly, that was just the "hassle" portion of flying..."he can't be in the stroller or the carseat, if he can walk, he can go through security by himself..." Then trying to round up all our stuff with a thousand people waiting behind us. That wouldn't be so bad, that part is a PITA, but not bad. It just adds to the stress level (the non medicated stress level!!) of my anxiety about flying. I have to admit, though, TSA and most every airline we have used are very accommodating and kind. Stewards and Stewardesses mid flight when I needed to go the ladies room, playing with and sitting with the Wee Beastie.

Anna: from sea to shining sea! You are going to have such a good time! Busy, but very, very good..

Congratulations on all the losses, Tofuties!.

I have posted yesterday didn't make it on site. It was long and rambling. Smile! God loves you!.

Enjoy your days and your muscles..

We enjoyed tow absolutely beautiful days on Sat&Sun, now 60s but still pleasant, even and the ground is wet. No big storms here. I was able to keep my window open all night!.

What a treat open windows are. I take my Claritan each day and I'm god to sit..

I keep losing weight. I joined a new weight loss program led by Colette Baron-Reid with active new members from all over the world. We can't weigh ourselves for 1 month and the class is 5 weeks long. We have to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. Big deal if you've been using food as emotional batting, but easy for me and MF..

I also signed up for Deborah King's on line course for Energy Healing.So, I'm a wonderfully busy bee right now. I had stopped listening to hayhouseradio.com probably about a year ago, but had signed up for long term members benefits. Hay House was one of the things that has sustained me all these yeras in bed..

Okay. I'll shut up now. Don't worry: God still loves each and every one of us very much..

I need breakfast and some coffee..

Enjoy your beautiful days, all who have them. It is drizzly and here and the world is turning green, the trees are budding and all my daffodils are smiling at me. Check on my Earthboxes yesterday. Some Wiley Opossum was digging around in my nice organic beds! YIKES!.

So, dump it all out and start over when I can. Earthboxes are pretty quick from seed to.

Food, so I'll try again..

DH will be off and at home this week. He's taking me to 2 MDs appointments, so I think we'll stop and get some more organic soil and seeds too..

I feel like Elmer Fudd with a Wiley Possum!.

Love to all Tough Lovelies,.

Cheri, it's just added after your regular fill/polish. If you have polish, then they use a clear, thick gel and you put your hands under the UV for a couple of minutes. It dries super hard, and much faster than clear polish. If you just have the acrylic and nopolish, like I do, then it's a clear polish-like gel they use and you go under then UV. Since I'm starting with a fresh set, I think I will get a color - probably just white - and the gel on top. It protects the polish, too, and makes it last longer without the tips rubbing off. Nothing worse than handling some important papers at work and seeing a big, red or pink smudge mark from your nails on it!..

I am feeling pretty good today. Day 2 and 1/2 (let's just say 3) of no smoking and of course have been OP. Down some more this morning, just losing the weight I gained. I'm happy about that. My husband got the kids ready for school this morning without ever waking me up, so I got to sleep in! He's so good to me. Not much to do today except clean the house and wash clothes.

He didn't like it when I reminded him that they way he felt right then, is what I live with 80% of the time for the last 18 years and he either needed to suck it up and deal with it, or take action and do something about it.

I feel hungover today, not from drinking sludge but from crying all weekend. The guy I've been hung up on for years has truly put me in the friend category and chose another woman. I cant believe I've wasted so much time on him and also how easily I was tossed aside. Add TOM to this and I was a weepy wreck. But, I'm getting back on the horse and wrote a bunch of dudes online this morning. Plus, the scale is being kind to me and already showing a loss halfway through my week, and I'm just a few pounds from being at my lowest adult weight ever. Trying to concentrate on the bright side of a hard life...

Agreed. The swimsuit people are worse than the New Year's resolution people. At least they were when I did WW..

I am ecstatic to report that the person whom I wanted to choke with frozen broccoli, still in the bag, with a rusty fork, has choked herself instead! I love come-uppance! Please let me not laugh out loud.....

Sorry to hear about your dh and you having a flare up too!.


Hope the headache goes away..


Happy BIrthday!.


, I was lucky last time I flew to be sitting next to a pharmacist who informed me of the Xanax dose.

It was actually close to what my doc had said, this time I weigh 60 lbs less too...

I am going to have to leave the area and go laugh. I did take some Excedrin Tension Headache Relief and I hope it helps before the Diva gets off the school bus!.

Looking at some interesting new jewelry ideas, too.....

, I meant to say something and it exited my head. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with that guy. I know you know you deserve better, but that doesn't make it hurt less. It can sometimes make it hurt more because of the lost time and all. Thinking of you and hang in there...

De, Hope you and your DH feel better soon! Feeling crappy AND having to listen to a whiny DH sucks on multiple levels. I've been there..

Hello to all!.

Not much time to post...still, but wanted to congratulate all today's.


And extend my sympathy (and empathy) to all the stress and/or sadnesses I've read about today. I'm just so happy we have each other!.

Also a quick.

Happy Birthday.



! And congrats to.


For getting through LR..

Construction work and whatnot in my basement this week. Car on the fritz. DH in Hawaii for another 2 weeks. (Yes, Hawaii. It's not all roses for him though...he works from sunup to 10 pm most of those days. It is NOT a vacation.).

I will likely only be drive-by posting for the rest of the week but will definitely be reading. I've never had a group of cyber-friends quite like the Mfing TLers! I find the comic relief so refreshing!..

Hi Everyone!.


- let me know what you think of the s'mores, ok?.


I'm sorry I missed the whole thing about why you would want to choke someone with frozen broccoli and a rusty fork, but visually, I'm having a hard time figuring out you would do this... :-).


- I'm so very sorry about the cranky dh who needs surgery and your flare up! I have a dh/child at home who sneezes and it's moan and groan time, so I really understand!.

PomBerry with diet tonic.

That is a WHOA! Sitting here drinking the starwberry watermelon - YUM!!!.




Hello to all I missed!.

Wow, you're all moving so quickly... but I shouldn't expect less from the TL thread. I've been busy studying for my psych exam, and the closer it gets, the more concerned I am. This week is totally crazy for me! All I can hope is that the stress won't make me retain water (does that even happen?)... this week is pretty crazy for me. Thesis meetings, phone interviews (!!!), financial aid meetings...

So... that said... how's everyone?..

Claire - Stress may or may not make you retain water, but it can DEFINITELY slow or stall your weight loss. Just a thought, but since this is such a stressful week for you, why not just avoid the scale until it's over and you get back to some semblance of normal? The last thing you need is the added stress of worrying about what the scale is going to say. Missing a week of weighing isn't going to hurt, and might just help tremendously!..

I would do that, but I pay at WW to weigh in, so I feel like it would be a waste of money to not go... I know it sounds like a small price to pay for peace of mind, but I am quite poor. I was very annoyed when there was a snow day and the WW meeting was canceled (and there's not another one within 25 miles), meaning that my money was just wasted...

Oh, Melissa, every office has one. This particular woman makes the rounds - she hones in on someone and it's THEIR turn for a couple of days, and then she is on to the next person. So it's not just me. She is a mean and nasty person but good at the primary function of her job, so they keep her on. I try to see the good in everyone, but she has me stumped..

Off to the nail salon for some girly time with the little one! Then I'm shipping her little butt to the Y with her dad so I can make some jewelry!..
