Want the latest Medifast Coupons?

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

Quick question... Has anyone tried the dietary supplement 'Medifast'? Does it work? Looking forward for any answer. Second question.. Since I saw that no one started the thread this Sunday morning I am so I have a place to post my final DM..



The H2H challenge is almost over. Have a successful weigh-in..

I would personally like to CONGRATULATE all the RED HOTS who stuck it out to the end. This was indeed a CHALLENGE that some of us could not accept, but we have learned a lot from this..

1) We are always here for each other.

2) What triggered our BLTS. Let's hope we can conquer that for the remainder of this holiday season..

3) That we have to work the program so that it will work for us..

4) ODAAT will get us healthy & OMAAT will get us to goal..

5) We need to drink our water for hydration & do our exercise for strength & toning..

6) We need the support of our friends..

I am sharing one last DM to help keep you STAY positive and motivated. If this offends you, I am not sorry. Get over it..



When we feel we have nothing left to give,.

And we are sure that the song has ended,.

When our day seems over and the shadows fall.

And the darkness of night has descended,.

Where can we go to find the strength.

To valiantly keep on trying?.

Where can we find the hand that will dry.

The tears that the heart is crying?.

There's but one place to go and that is to God,.

And dropping all pretense and pride,.

We can pour out our problems without restraint.

And gain strength with Him at our side..

And together we stand at life's crossroads.

And view what we think is the end,.

But God has a much bigger vision,.

And He tells us it's only a bend..

For the road goes on and is smoother,.

And the pause in the song is a rest,.

And the part that's unsung and unfinished.

Is the sweetest and richest and best..

So rest and relax and grow stronger ....

Let go and let God share your load..

Your work is not finished or ended ....

You've just come to a bend in the road..

~ Helen Steiner Rice ~.

Have a SUCCESSFUL OP day, GOD bless & {{{HUGS}}}. Over & out...

Hello Reds -.

Any takers on the co-captain front? I really can't take it on by myself because of upcoming family obligations..

I will try to write more tomorrow - time to put the kidlets to bed...

Hi Reds.....

I hope everyone had a great weekend... I took the dogs out for our weekend hike and got rained on again... I am 0 for 2 in guessing I can make it before the rain starts... I now know not to trust myself on this one....

Well, I am off to finish closet shopping.. I am finding lots of old stuff that now fits but my DH says they are all out of style.. regardless the closet needs cleaning...

Good Monday morning Reds!.

Gail - congrats on making it to the 20's!.

Connie - You are moving in the right direction - so what you are doing must be working!.

Susan - I always look up the radar online before I take the kids to the park or go for a walk. Wet dogs...yeck. I love them, but hate that smell. Busy work again this week?.

Nich and Blanche - Hope you are having a good Monday!.

I just ordered better running shoes from Zappos, so am excited to get them. I used to hate running, but now it is almost like meditation. Am going for 15 min. non-stop this week. 13 min. again today..

Hope you all are doing well - I am working on getting my OP number back to 7. This past week was not so good...

Blanche - Same deal, you are rocking the program..

Connie - Stay on the boards, we are here for you girlie..

Susan - I sent my doggies out this morning in the rain because nature called. They are both sitting under me all wet and smell horrible. I may have to give them baths just to get rid of the wet dog smell. Yuck!!! So glad we have rain today though as we sure need it..

Have a wonderful day Red Hots!!! ~N..

Hello Reds!.

Gail - I think we are getting the same storm here in MN. On the radar it looked like it covered over half the US. We are expecting 3-6" of snow today. The kids are really excited, but it will probably be too cold afterwards to play in it..

Terri - Happy Birthday!!.

I hope you are all doing well! If I need to cancel lessons tonight due to snow, I will BBL...

Well the snow has arrived here this morning. Every school in this area is now closed. Waiting to see about daycare. Thankfully, I have a flexible work arrangement and can work from home today so I don't need to drive this morning. Hoping daycare is open because I can certainly be much more productive without two little ones calling mommy all day!.

Have a good one ladies...

Ladies: Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a big piece of birthday cake and was nauseous after. I went to bed not liking the way I was feeling. I even woke up this morning still feeling a bit icky. I turned 41 yesterday if any one is keeping track. I want to get this weight off and be healthier for my forties and beyond..

Blanche: Nich will send you the code for the banner. Just copy the code and go to Edit Profile/Settings at the top of the page and paste the code in your signature. I didn't know for the longest time how to do it either...

Thank you. I will wait for Nich to send me the code. I knocked you off the high chair this week. It really was time for me to lose big. My body does what it wants to. I follow the plan the best as I can & let the body decide what it wants to do.

Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off & get back on the.

Good Evening Reds!.

Just finished shoveling...glad that is done! Here is a strange non-scale victory - I finished shoveling a lot faster than last year and was less sweaty. Hooray!.

Blanche - congrats on being biggest loser!.

Gail - How did it go with the kids today?.

Terri - I feel sick after I eat sweets too. Same goes for alchohol. I hope you had a nice birthday! I turn 40 in Feb. and had the same thoughts about getting healthy for my 40's. It is a lot better going into this birthday looking and feeling good!.

I hope everyone is doing well! I started my Holiday baking today and into the freezer it goes. The big reception I am planning for a church leader on Saturday is coming together, and my Christmas shopping is winding down. I see the light!.

Be well!..

Hi Reds....

So sorry to have missed your birthday Terri... Happy belaed.... It is funny how we now don't enjoy the things we used to food wise...before Medifast you probably would have loved that piece of cake and now it doesn't settle well.. Medifast changes us like that...

I have been so crazy busy at work and not able to post much.. I have stayed on my exercise plan and with getting ready for christmas, thats is about all I can do....

Kristi - My birthday is in Feb as well... But I will be 47 and getting closer and closer to the big 50.... I want to be in the best shape I can possibly be for that one.....

See you all later ...

Morning ladies!.

We ended up with about 8 or 9 inches of snow yesteray. Daycare opened late but DH was able to bring them over after he plowed out the driveway. He has not been able to really kick this sickness going around completely and it's wearing him (and me!) down! He gets very sad during this time of year - it's just him and his mom left from his family - and he is still unsettled that she is in the adult home/assisted living facility. She is a very negative person - not happy there - but would not be/was not happy here either. So, even tho many times I just want to tell him 'suck it up' I practice what little patience my mama gave me and do my best to be sympathetic.....sounds pretty bad doesn't it. Ugh....Thanks for listening!..

Good morning Nich, Gail, Kristi, Susan & Terri. You are the only.


Yet still posting..



Thank you for the banner. You can see I got it. I can relate & sympathize about your computer issues. Not too long ago, I was experiencing computer issues. The new computer is serving me well so far..




Glad to see you are continuing your exercise. After they took that out of the last two challenges, I didn't hear much about exercise..


: you & your family are in my prayers. We got snow one day before Thanksgiving, but no more since. Prediction is for snow Sat & Sun. Quick recovery wished for all ill..


It appears no one wants to share the captain's hat wit you. I will pray that some RED comes forward soon. It would break my heart to see the.



Well, so long for now. Stay strong & OP. As the rest of you, much to do, Later then...

Hello Reds!.

It is darn cold here this morning. Forcasted high of 8. I watched my son get on the bus from the window...bad mommy, I know. Today is the first day my hip has been a little sore - I'm guessing from running, so I will have to see what happens..

Captaining doesn't really take up that much time. I try to check in most everyday and Nich and I alternated starting the Sunday posts. January is promising to be a little crazy for me - we are in the process of buying a town house for my mom so she doesn't have to take care of outdoor shoveling, etc. anymore. Also, my neice (who is pregnant and unfortunately in prison due to drugs) is expected to deliver in Jan. She is giving the baby up for adoption, but as a family, my sister and I are going to care for the little guy for a couple of weeks before the adoption is finalized.

My DH and I have considered adopting him, but with 3 kids already and this baby most likely having special needs, I don't think I could meet anyone's needs very well. So, you can see why I can't really take the captainship on my own. If worst comes to worst, we can sit this challenge out and do the next..

Gail - I understand what you are feeling. Sometimes as Moms, we are so tapped out, it is hard to be sympathetic with our DHs when we really don't get much back when we are sick. I hear this from my friends all the time. Good for you for taking the high road!.

I hope everyone is staying warm (heard it is even cold in CA!). Have a wonderful day!..

I've been keeping myself busy helping my friend and going to my water aerobics and THAT keeps me out of trouble !! I've been pretty good OP these past few days so.............hanging in there still NOT letting go !!.

Kristy, Gail, Niche, Susan and last but not least Blanche I do miss you guys but sometimes I just don't feel like being a burden on the thread so I stay away BUT I do think of you guys a lotYou were always there for me and STILL are and for that I THANK YOU !!.

Red hots!! Wow it has been a long time and a ton of things have happened since I last posted. To catch yall up, school is going well. I passed my comps in Nov! Woohoo!! I am finishing up a brutal quarter! I will be graduating in May with my master's! I recently took a trip to the states to welcome my grandson into the world! Nikolai William was born on Nov 15th, a healthy 7lbs 4 oz. I will be posting pics later! I have returned to Japan just a couple of days ago! Catch up on my program, well it has been on hold due to traveling but I am happy to announce that I actually lost 1lb and was able to maintain my weight! I have recommitted tot he program with the goal of losing 10 lbs by the end of the year! Well that is my life in a nut shell! I have missed the group and hope to be on more now that the quarter is almost over and the holidays are here!.

Morning Hotties.

I think I've developed an allergy to shrimp (sigh~).... I normally have salad with shrimp for my L&G because it's easy not to mention delicious. The last few times I ate it I ended up with what felt like a felt cylinder in the middle of my throat. Ok to breath but uncomfortable to swallow. So, I laid off a few days - ate some cooked veges w/boca burgers and it didn't happen. Last night I went back to the salad.

Nyesa - welcome home - we did miss you as Susan said..

Connie - you would never be a burden! Come back often for support....that's what we are here for!..
