Marni ~ Way to go on the NSV with everyone noticing how much you have lost!!!.

Molly ~ I was just thinking about Reenie today. I haven't talked to her or seen her on Facebook in a bit. I know she is really busy. I think Kristie talkes to her..


Donna & Laura ~ I'm ready to start tomorrow. Last 14 here we come!!!.

Donna ~ I'm starting the EA Active tomorrow...setting it to beginner. Good Luck to you. I will let you know how it goes. (OK...I know how it goes, since I've started it a couple times. It's the Finishing that I WILL DO THIS TIME!!!)..

Happy monday purps....

Haven't had a chance to post for a few days but still op after day 4 and feeling pretty good. I am feeling frustrated with myself for regaining weight, but hopefully I will start to feel better soon! I look at all my skinny pants I bought last year, and it seems like forever til I get back in them!.

Good luck on all of your mini competitions that you are starting! I wasn't able to keep track of my water yesterday, but I think I did okay..

I hope you all have a great day. I won't be able to post tonight as I will be running the kiddos around....

Have a good night!..

Cori, I did my day 1 but I think I messed up because my goals showed canceled so I reset and now it shows 0 of's. I think I lost my work out journal for today. I may work out again later, we will see. Funny running circles around board. I don't have a board but I bet I could find something to run around...

I've been sandboarding, and doing things I hadn't ever done before..

I suppose if you are getting toned up you will have an increase in weight. As long as sizes/measurements are going down - that's what counts...

Donna ~ Glad you did day one... I will pm you my # for any questions...call anytime. (will do in the morning) I restarted the 30 day but had to do the goals by what ever I wanted...don't much care about those...I set those for 7 days each. 500 calories burned for 7, 7 day w/o, and I forget the other. I just want to complete the 30 day challenge w/o missing a day. I do tomorrow and then a day rest...but I am logging in extra stuff...like walking (nike #) and I did house work and laundry and I counted it as an hour for today...

It doesn't weigh you like Wii Fit. Speaking of which...look at your ticker girl. I remember not so long ago...you were chomping at the bit for 160 to get the Wii System. You GO Girl!!! & Keep it UP!!! I'm so pumped for this 30 day Wii challenge. Oh' ya...before I forget...take your measurements...I am doing mine in the morning.

I thought I almost crashed DS computer today. Thought I would get on to do my Facebook Farming and then run a scan...next think you know I downloaded updated version of Adobe Reading and it did something???...Luckly for F11...restart the darn thing from 10/16. That boy would have killed me....

SO good to see familiar faces!! I finally moved closer to my job and am living a new life in a lot of ways. I am settling in wonderfully and still very happy. I found this thread the most inspiring and the best help in keeping me on track. My track has always been a bit outside the norm so finding the right combination of what "works" is STILL a huge challenge. I just purchased the body bugg which monitors calories burned in real time. Office desk job burns 60 calories an hour.

That's slow. Its help me get up and walk the halls in between patients....

So, gals (and guys? Mark out there somewhere?), where are we in this challenge? I will commit especially through the holidays....

Sandy! Hey girl (**tossed water balloon over your cubicle**)!.

Sandy ~ The AE Active is for the Wii. You set up this 30 day challenge and you do a bunch of different set exercises. Two days on, one day rest. The exercise changes each time and there is some running and walking in place following a track. You can also incorporate the balance board into it if you have one. It gives you a pretty decent workout...

Welcome Christy!!!.

Glad to have you in the castle!.

Our next weigh-in will be on the 26th. It runs for 6 weeks. So be sure to report every sunday or Monday! Very important...your stats are important for the team... without them it counts against us. You can always call or email or text them to a team member if you can't get them posted on the thread that will be designated for it..

Hang in there... make sure you get all your meals in. You need the nutrition, and the calories/vitamins/carbs are important. Too little can be as bad as too many..

Drink your water too. We like to do a water war or two here once in a while... where everyone drinks their water and posts how they are doing on consumption...

Hello Team! I forgot to post my weight yesterday for out mini challenge ~ 163.8! Welcome back SANDY! I had an extremely stressful night last evening! My car was seized by the police at 7p.m. I had an outstanding debt of $1,500 for a credit card from 10 years ago. I went to court in 2003 in regards to this issue. You see, I am on disability and am considered permanently disabled, and because of this, I was considered judgment free. That means that yes, I am responsible for the debt, but until I am working I do not have to pay it. I even got legal advice before I went to court.

I tried explaining to the police what happened and they told me to call the plaintiff's lawyer in the morning. I was shaking because I was so upset, I could barely breath. My car is my only way to get to school, and I had to pick my DS up at work in a few hours. Well, as it stands right now, the lawyer's office told me that because they didn't know if I was working or not, they took the car. To get it back I have to pay a $500 towards the debt, $600 for a sherrif's office fee, $303 for the tow and storage! I have about $12 to my name.

Meanwhile I will be missing 2 days of school, and if you know about college, 2 days is a lot to miss. I already put a call into legal aid to get some advice because this never should have happened. I am also calling the Attourney General's office. My papers that have the information about being exempt from paying at this time also says that if you have certain property, such as a car, if you use it for work, or to find work, (which school is equivalent to) then they can't take that either. I am so sorry to go on and on like this, but I really needed to vent.

I am actually embarrassed by all of this, but we all have made mistakes in the past, and this is what they call wreckage from my past!..

Kristi, I weighed 98 lbs when I graduated high school. You have lost a whole 18 year old me. Have you tried picking Mike and Jillian up together and walking around with them? It would be a good reminder of what you were carrying less then a year ago..

BTW, excellent song choice for the purple team. It is nice to go where all our troubles are the same and everybody knows your name. Good choice..

AJ, welcome back. Im not sure if you were here when I started in July or not but all the same welcome back..

Cori, I didnt take my measurements. I do that on the 27th of the month so I will just stick with that. It is only a week and I like to see what each month brings (or should I say loses?). I came home from work today and changed out of my work cloths right away and did my day 2 of the challenge. I think that is going to be the trick for me. Just get right at it when I get home.

Christy, welcome friend. The kingdom is growing. Sometimes when I still need to get in another meal and I am ready for bed I just mix a quick shake, no ice or blending, and drink it down. It is so important to your health to get all 5 Medifast meals in along with a full L&G. Good luck to you..

Sandy, welcome back. It is nice to see you again..

Laura, WOW!! Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. Seems like there should be some repercussion there. You have a court order. Hope legal aid is helpful. Hang in there, dont be embarrassed. Stuff happens, and most, if not all, of us have had some not so good things happen in our past.

Thank you all for your support. Things got somewhat hectic tonight. My sister, who is suppose to wire me money tomorrow, told me she won't do it now until she talked to the lawyer first, (the money is coming out of my father's estate which is in probate now). Which I can understand, but she could not understand why I was upset and told me, (like I didn;t know this) that it is my own fault that I am in this situation. Yes, I know this but, should I be punished indefinitely for a mistake I made 10 years ago, and take the chance of ruining my chances at school right now because I can't get there? It is just very frustrating when you are dealing with family sometimes!!! Whewww, now I feel better!!!..

Hi Chris ~ Welcome to the Purple Castle!!!.

You need to set up a signature. Go to Edit Profile/Settings (orange bar on the left) then click on Edit Signature (first button on the left) That gives you options of what to put in your signature. Your signature is what you see under the _____________ on people posts. You get up to 4 banners and what ever writing. It's nice to incude your name as the first line then you don't have to type it in every time. When you copy and paste a banner you have to take out the ***BTW...


For the Ticker...I use.


And you can boomark it. The first time you copy and past the [url] to your signature then all you have to do in the future is click on bookmark, update, and it will do it for you to your signature..

Good Luck and again welcome and any questions...just ask!!!..

Hello, purple Peeps!.

Mylife76, you're in the challenge just by signing in here. you have to log in on Sunday (or Monday?) with your weight loss, number of days on plan (OP), and number of days drinking enough water. I'm sure someone else has a more concise answer. Tell us more about you, Mylife76..

My goal is to log on once per day. Its been so difficult taking charge of making this a "priority" again. Sandi, Kristie, Cori and Molly! Hey again. I am SO happy to see your names again, it inspires me all over again....

Laura, tough times, girl. Here is the place to vent and gain support like from no other family member or friend. Let me tell you..

In your edit profile/settings is an area to edit your signature. You can take the team purple banner codes from the first page and put your team purple banner there... that way you aren't running around nekkid... and you can be a proud member of our team!.

Be sure to remove the astericks so the banner works (the astericks are there just so you can grab the code)..

You talk/discuss/chat here with your teammates. You can get support or even give it. Make new Medifast buddies even! Your struggles and your victories are always supported here..

On Sunday/Monday there will be a team purple weigh in thread. You will post your stats there. There will also be directions of how to post and the rules before you start posting. Once you enter in your start weight this Sunday or Monday (you choose which of those days to report) then you need to report your stats for the upcoming 6 weeks. Two absences and you are withdrawn from the challenge - but the absences count against the team... so very important that you commit to reporting.

This is a great big warm castle... unlike any other. Our theme song is "Where everybody knows your name" the Cheers TV song... cause everybody does know your name and cares about you!..

Wow kristie! that is very cool. let us know how it goes. they will be awed by your beautiful slim figure no matter what happens....

So cori, do you have a good Medifast brownie recipe? I have yet to reventure out into recipe land but will eventually need to spice things up a bit... can only eat so much cream of tomato soup..

Day 6, so weigh in is tomorrow morning. so, when the challenge starts this sunday, do we just change our weigh in day? can't remember how all that works..


Have a great day purple people!..

Hey Everyone,.

Been a bit bad for the past couple of weeks. I am back. Ready for the challenge Monday. Nice to see lots of the old folks back in the house. Shout out to AJ, Sandy, Molly and Mark..

This is the time of year when all the temptations start. Holidays are around the corner and I am a bit scared. Last year I had such focus because it was the begining of my weight loss journey. I have been totally out of control the past few weeks and treading in and out of Medifast over the past 3 months. Now I need to completely recommit and stay 100% OP if I am going to make it through the holidays and stay on track to finally get to goal. I will succeed and do transition the right way this time.

Talk to you all later...

Hello all,.

Boy this was a sad day. I went to the funeral of a 19 year old college freshman who dropped dead walking across campus on Monday. I hope none of you ever have to endure what I watched her parents endure this morning. Tell all of the the ones you love that you love them TODAY. Don't wait...

Hi purps. I was kinda been MIA yesterday but very much on plan..

Busy at work and had an NRA committee meeting last night so I have not been on the boards much. I am at work now so just wanted to stop by and say hi, no time to play..

Welcome all newbies and welcome back to our returning peeps..

I am feeling really good about the Wii Active 30 day challenge and really love the feeling after I finish my workout. I am committed to finishing the challenge and getting to goal...

Marni, this is a sad day. We as parents are not suppose to have to bury our children. It just does not fit..

I am a funeral director and unfortunately see this too often. There is never a better time than the present to say "I love you" as we never know when it will be our last chance..

My family never leaves each other without a kiss, a hug and an I love you...

Welcome Chrissy!!!.

I had a funny today. I have been after my daughter to give me her purple pants that are too big for her. She has been wearing them even though they practically fall off her. So I was doing laundry and started taking the jeans and pants that were too big for her. I found the purple pants. Put them on.


I'm going to have to start making sure I wash my clothes separate from hers. We aren't going to be able to tell who's clothes is whos!.

Getting closer to the 100# mark!!!.

I am starting to go through the laundry room and get rid of clothes that don't fit the kids or me... or just are stained or torn. Next will be my room! Funny I pulled out a pair of sweat shorts that I used to wear that were comfortable to wear before I started. I think I can fit into one leg now! LOL I may have to take a pic doing that!..
