That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Happy Sunday peeps!! I posted a couple of pictures of me in a pair of size 14 slacks that were tight when I started Medifast on my page. Take a look. I can't believe it only took me five months..

Tomorrow starts week three of transition for me and I get to add dairy. I bought some plain fat free greek yogurt to try. This week was fruit and although I enjoyed it, I did find that if I ate it to early in the day it triggered sugar cravings. I started eating it later in the day and that seems to have worked...

Donna you are doing so well. T&M scares the bigebers off of me. I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician next Friday to go over the plan and make sure I choose Diabetic friendly choices..

I go to my internist tomorrow for a checkup. It will be my 6 month recheck! I do have to fast until my bloodwork and my check up. I am taking a bar in my purse to eat right away..

I also turned in my notice at Curves. After 810 times there, it is just not doing much for me. I looked at the LA fitness near me, and will go to 24 hour fitness tomorrow...

I was out of town this weekend. I'll post my weight tomorrow..

We went to San Francisco and had a great time - some walking, lots of public transportation and OP for food. It was just hard to drink enough water... hard to find a bathroom...

Good Monday morning everyone! Its actually a miserable Monday here in Jersey as it is raining and I'm sure the traffic on 80 will be so much fun!!.

Robin, boy do I wish I was in San Francisco right now. I've never been to California yet...but I will someday. WTG on staying OP!!!.

Marni, love the new pic and the new haircut!! You look great!!.

Donna, you look AWESOME! The pictures are great and I particularly love the one of the scale showing 134.4 - I can't wait to see that number!! It must be so exciting to see that! You're gonna have fun shopping for bathing suits this summer.

I am off to another interesting day at work with our crazy temp..

I just try and deal with it the best I can. Have a great day everyone!!!..

I posted!!! We have Sunday and Monday to post and I wanted to wait and see what the scale would to... glad I did because yesterday I was UP 3.5 pounds!!! Today I was down 5 pounds from all of it. So... I am happy I waited..

Robin, well done on staying OP on vacation!!! Did you have a nice time? Do share!!.

Donna, you are swimming in those pants!!! WONDERFUL!!!!.

Since the scale moved, I am feeling less manic. However the hubby and I are still going to adjust our eating for a couple days.... stick to shakes and eat earlier in the day. Also avoiding condiments and snacks. I don't think it is a bad thing to eat food as it comes to us (not spicing it up), it gives us the opportunity to appreciate foods (meats and veggies) in their natural form. And eating earlier in the day gives my body time to digest...

I think it takes me longer to digest food than most people. Additionally we will try to have a hot drink with each of our meals and log all of our foods into the Medifast site... we have stopped doing that lately..

Well, I have a kid with a doctors appointment today... time to get going. Hugs and loves!.

I managed to bring in a goose egg today. It has to be that I didn't drink enough water on the heels of a really huge week last week..

My official weigh day is Thursday, so you better believe I'll be flooding myself until then. Watch out on Wednesday! You all have been challenged..

San Francisco was a lot of fun. It was a quick trip. We have friends who have an extra home in the City. They are very generous about letting us use it. It's a short walk to public transportation so it's easy to get around. We went down to the Ferry Building and ran through Farmer's Market.

I wish I could've bought a bunch of veggies. There was one farmer who only sold mushrooms. He had probably 15-20 different kinds. Some were crazy looking. It was raining off and on, but that just made things more interesting.

On Saturday they had the March for Life right near where they were. The crowd was huge..

Later that afternoon we went to a family party (late Christmas). I hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving. They were all very supportive and telling me how great I look. It's hard to hear because I don't see it and I'm still mostly wearing the same clothes..

Off to the bathroom.....

What did you all have for your L&G today?.

I finally read how to make good eggplant. I cut it, salted it in a colander for 1 hour then rinsed rinsed rinsed it. I then used 1 healthy fat and put Olive oil and garlic powder in a baggie and shook the eggplant in it. Then I used my George Foreman Grill and cooked it. It was yum!.

I also took extra firm tofu that I took the water out of and sliced and put it in the baggie with some Butter no stick spray and garlic powder and shook it up. Then I grilled the slices. It was great!!.

What about you?..

Hey all! I finally posted.

Adrienne will post too, however, she had surgery on Monday and was off plan for two days as she battled nausea from the anesthesia. She had her knee redone... major ouch!.

Eggplant sounds so delicious! One day... for now I keep my meals very easy. I could easily eat the same thing every day LOL. Today will probably continue with ground beef - super duper lean from a grass fed pretty much organic cow on our property - cooked up with celery and what not on a bed of cooked spinach... at least until payday when I can go buy more shrimp...

I LOVE eggplant! However the thought of tofu makes me want to caulk my shower....

I have to highly recommend the recipe in the recipe section for buffalo chicken on celery salad... OMGOMGOMG... best L&G I have had yet. I used cooked shrimp and the lowfat blue cheese salad dressing (made with yogurt) I counted as my fat servings. It was really really delish! HOWEVER... Today I ate my L&G earlier in the day to avoid the rock in my gut feeling I get when eating too late in the day.

Great stuff, very filling..

I have to highly recommend the TSFL shaker with mixing ball... I made a shake here at work in it and it worked out great! I even made the strawberry (which I have had to choke down before in standard form) shake and it tasted just like strawberry milk. I guess my tastes are changing! Tomorrow is the same L&G as today..

X's and O's my beautiful friends!!.

I had cottage cheese. I kinda snacked on it through the day..

At dinnertime there was about 3/4 c. left. I mixed it with smashed cauliflower and some parmesan. It was really good and super filling..

I'm off to get another 4c of water. That'll put me at 16c for the day... plus some decaf tea...

Robin, I challenge you with water today!! I managed 19 glasses of water yesterday, my new record. I have only had two sips from my water bottle today... make me work for it.

My scale started moving again and I am relieved... I knew it would and logic told me it would... but I just had to control it myself..

Great start to a good day. I start my first bachelor's class today!!.

Congrats on the bloodwork Marni..........That is awesome..

So I am just starting TOM for the first time OP......I have to decide if I should or shouldn't weigh myself on Friday. I don't want to be discouraged. I do know why I cried when the cat ate my meatloaf now though and why everything has had me a basket case......Even through it all I did not have one single craving....A little hungrier this week and now I know why. I am one of those girls that don't get warning signs, it just appears...

Hard to say what you should do... to weigh or not to weigh. If you weight, you will understand what you body might do NEXT TOM... I know that I gain 2 lbs a day for the three days before my period and then as long as I drink a lot of water I will drop 1 lb per day (give or take) and the next week it will get caught up..

ROBIN!! I am on my 3rd bottle of water... 32+24+24... how are you doing darling??..

Wow, you guys were crazy on Wednesday with the water war. I don't think I could manage getting in that much water. Congrats, Robin!! Today is another water war isn't it? I'll give it a hoot but I know I won't come close to Robin..

My lean and green tonight will probably just be some grilled chix and broccoli. I've been having pizza for lunch! Anyone else try it?? There is a recipe on the boards where you use your chix noodle soups to make the pizza crust and then top with a little sauce and cheese - YUM! Its something different so I am enjoying it..

My new goal is not about weight, but body fat. I want to get my % of body fat down to close to 30 (It is about 38% right now). After that I will decide how much more muscle I need!!.
