Happy weigh in day, Reds!.

I am checking in quick before we head to my MIL's for the big Vikings game. This week was a good one for me weight loss wise, and this next one will be a challenge with all the good food, but onederland is so close I can smell it. Wouldn't it be cool to be out of the obese category by new years..

I am thankful for all the support and friendship I get from the Reds as well. I wouldn't have been able to stick with this without you. I am thankful for good health and family, which has been on my mind so much this fall..

Well, time to go! Have a great OP day!..

Oh my goodness - I can't believe I didn't even get a chance to post yesterday! I did not have a loss last week but I did not gain either. I am greatful for that and that I've been able to pull my head out of my behind and get things straight in my mind..

Yesterday was the best OP day I've had in WEEKS! I managed to stay in the 900 calorie range...got some exercise in to boot. I was supposed to go to a pot luck dinner but my sitter came down with the cold going around so that fell through. Temptation avoided!.

Have a super Monday..

Happy Monday morning.


What can I say but just send out my usual DM & hope it touches someone..


Value in the giving. There have been times when the kindness of another person has changed your life for the better. And it's easy to see that kindness has the power to reach far beyond itself..

In the most difficult of moments, kindness heals and reassures. Kindness gives comfort, and hope where there was none before...

Morning Hotties.

Nich - NYC and the Christmas show was absolutely amazing. DH had never been. Never been on the train to NY either. His face was glued to the window of the train the entire time. In NY, we did some shopping at the biggest Toys R Us - it has a ferris wheel inside - and had a great lunch before the show. Then after the show we walked back to the train station.

As far as the trial goes - I have access to the testing website. All I have to do is use it and give feedback. I didn't have a chance to get too crazy yesterday but I did see it looks much quicker and easier the the current MyPlan. There is a spot you can drag and drop favorites. I want to see if we can make favorite meals.....I'll keep you posted!.

Have a great day...

A quick fly-by before heading out - Hope you are all doing well this morning. I have been having major swings in water retention lately. Not sure why as my food intake hasn't really changed. I ran for 7 min. on the treadmill yesterday!.

My newest NSV: When I went shopping this weekend, I tried on pants and skirts for a Christmas party outfit... All the size 12 pants fit, and I am in a size 10 for skirts! I was flabbergasted! I didn't love the skirts, but I almost wanted to buy them, just because they were a 10! Ended up with a great pair of black "tuxedo" pants that have a sheen to them and a cute form fitting top that is black and silver. My DH loved the outfit when I showed it to him at home...

Hi Reds.

It is your Tuesday Exercise Cheerleader! Just remember that exercise can help you stay on track, work off extra bites, and keep your spirits up... If you just get out there and try it, before you know it your rockin it...Walkin is great exercise and can be done anywhere.. walking in place in your bedroom counts... so let's rock our personal plan for turkey day this week....

I have been sick so I have not exercised since last Wed and sure can feel the difference.. I think my sinuses are clear enough to try running again today.. I am hoping this break also allowed my hip to completely heal as well... I plan on running the morning of Turkey day to make sure that I get my exercise in before all the I am too busy excuses start piling up...

What is your plan? have one and stick too it...

Have a great day..

Hi Reds,.

Busy time before the holidays but wanted to drop by to say hello and wishing everyone a safe holiday. I went up a little on the scale due to TOM but not a big increase so definitely happy about it. I have not even shopped for Thanksgiving yet...im the cook...ugh. I have two parties to attend on Dec. 12th and I am pushing hard to drop some extra weight and tone up a bit..this is my short term motivation. It seems that as soon as I start making headroom TOM happens and then it's a gain...oh well not much I can do about that..

Wishing everyone a successful Medifast holiday week!!..

Jennifer - very cool! Thanks for sharing your NSV. You are so close to goal and it is fun to see people actually experiencing what I am visualizing. I would love to see pictures too!.

Connie - sorry about your work! That sounds frustrating. I'm glad your water aerobics are fun and hopefully stress relieving. I agree with Nich - we are here to support you, so don't be a stranger..

Susan - I didn't know you were sick - glad you are feeling better. How is your running going? I plan to exercise Thursday morning too, which means getting everything packed and ready tomorrow. It is supposed to be cold and snowy at my sister's this weekend, so the walking I had planned may not work out, but will maybe bring a yoga DVD and encourage my family to partake..

Nich and Blanche - it is good to see BOTH of your smilings faces!.

I hope all of your Thanksgiving plans are working out! I already have my Medifast all packed and ready to go!..

So I've moved to my new office at work which is much closer to home for me. My commute is literally cut in half and I now have and extra hour and a half in my day! Now, one would say that having to go upstairs to use the ladies room is a hassle. I am challenging myself to do exactly that. There is a restroom on this floor but - each time I need to use the potty I am walking up and down 21 stairs. I figure it's a good way to get some more movement in my day!..

Morning Reds!.

Just finished exercising and wanted to write before heading to the shower. I was pretty excited yesterday at Kohl's. I tried on a few pairs of size 16 jeans, and I was able to zip them! They were a little too tight in the waist for my comfort, so didn't buy them, but soon!.

I have been feeling a bit down lately too. My son, Aaron, who is 4 may be on the autism spectrum. My oldest, Ethan, is autistic and Aaron is so different, we didn't think he was too, but his teachers in preschool think we should get him screened. It is strange - he is still the same great kid, but for some reason this just pulls me down. My DH was pretty angry about the whole thing. I hope he comes around..


Blanche - what a great DM today. Thank you!!.

Gail - great idea about using the bathroom! With the number of times we have to visit that particular room, it could add up to a lot of stairs in a day! Good luck getting your shopping done..

Connie - You should feel really good about yourself that you keep trying. One of these days it will click and the perserverence will have paid off..

Olivia - Have a great Thanksgiving! Safe travels!.

Well, better get a move on. Be well and good luck getting your list done!..

Good morning on Black Friday!.

I stayed 95% OP yesterday. Had great turkey, sauteed asparagus and green beans. Passed on all the casseroles. My 5% of not being OP was probably an overserving of shrimp cocktail that I brought, better option than the cheesball/crackers, brownines and cookies staring me in the face. My mother makes the best apple pie I have ever had, it should win a baking contest or something. I cut two small pieces for my kids and I did have a small BLT from the cutting knife.

I drank a lot of water and brought some celery as well..

My husband (can you believe that) got up at 4:30am to go get a bike for DS and an electric scooter for DD. This was his first time doing black friday that early in the morning and best of all he was successful in saving some $$$..

My chocolate pie with the cinn pretzel crust was great. I am looking forward to the other half tonight while my family eats pumpkin pie from Kroger! I am cooking my own turkey with some sides today..

Have a great day everyone!..

Good Morning Red Hots!!.

I hope that everyone had a great Holiday. I was just too busy to stop for a second to post, sorry for leaving you all hanging on..


- So sorry to hear about your little one. I think we all know of someone who has a special child with autism and in my family it is my favorite Aunt Leti's daughter Leah who has autism. Leah and my son are the same age, 26 now and I can remember how sad I felt for my Aunt 25 years ago when she was having such a hard time with Leah, who we call Who Who. Today Who Who has such a rich life, she is able to sign so we can communicate with her pretty good. I cannot imagine life without her and my Aunt is such a strong person and God knew she would be able to handle this situation. You are strong and although I pray that your son is not autistic, I know that our God would never give you more than you can handle.


- You are doing such a great job on the plan. I have been messing around with it for too long and plan on really focusing on following your example. Stay strong and keep working the plan..


- How are you today?.


- Thanks for keeping the DM's coming..


- Great job on being 95% OP which probably did not kick you out of ketosis, so you will still burn the fat..

Hi REDs.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday spending time with friends and family...we did the double dinner deal first with my son (first time one of my kids cooked for me) and then on to my SIL's house.... lots of driving.... I didn't stay OP but never planned too..I didn't gorge myself but ate reasonbly... I had two wonderful NSV's that happened...I was looking for the blouse I wanted to wear for thanksgiving in the morning and came across a pair of size 14 pants I bought a few years ago that were too small and I never could wear.. I didn't take them back becuase I knew I would lose the weight. well here we are 3 years later and I thought what the heck...

They fit and were even a little lose.... I was so excited... that feeling made it real easy to not overeat... then I went out shopping today at Kohls and decided to get me a pair of pants on sale that were too small because I would need them soon... I tried on some 12's and they fit....I was so excited.....

I then decided to take the dogs for a hike in a new park I found... that way I could hike off the extra calories I ate yesterday....I started up a steep hill and it started sprinkling.. I looked up in the sky and thought I can make this... It doesn't look to bad, well I will never be a weather girl cause boy was I wrong....before I even made it up the hill, it was hailing and raining hard.. I decided I was too close to turn around and kept going...I was soaked but I hiked up a very steep hill in the hail and rain.... something I could never do before MF...

I hope you all have a great evening....
