Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another member here to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...

Hey PINKs!.

I just read up and caught all that enthusiam!!!!!.

Gooooooo PINK!!.

Such great WIWs!! NSVs! ....smaller sizes, bigger baggy pants, !!! LOL ....new weight decades! wow!!! And lookin' good in a size 10.



Is due some bling. (.


Where are you? worried about you.).


Has a new.


Cup! that's showing the.

Team PINK spirit!!.

I love to surround myself in special PINK things that are just for me to remind me of my.

PINK sisters..

Size 10 already! woo hoo!! You are lookin' small!! Gotta love shopping more and more! I like the second one for fall with the sleeves....did you buy them? (oh wait, I forget your west coast, you probably have nice weather year round.).


Good for you for getting back OP to finish the course! you will yell GOAL and it will be a glorious day on.


What are you going to do to celebrate at home?.


(((wish you have all your answers soon))).

I emailed with Pamouse and her son is in recovery now and doing PT..


My finger is not well....I cancelled my doc. appt. and already regret it. The infection looked like it was going to clear up...but it didn't..


Baggy pants!! can't wait to see the pic! GREAT NSV! time for new pants....I buy those HUGE black contractor trash bags and fill them with clothes to haul off. They are stronger and bigger than a standard trash bag and won't tear with the weight off the clothes. Those contractor bags are meant to haul off little scraps of lumber, etc from building sites. lol I get a roll of them same place I get the regular trash bags. look on bottom shelf at WM.


Cleaning out the larger sizes means you are going to have to start shopping soon for new clothes. I love fall clothes! the catalogs are already starting to arrive! btw, no happy about MY bday but am.

Totally happy about YOURs..

LOL Camping will be fun for your family! just last night I was telling my hubby that we need to go on a family camping/hiking trip SOON..the weather is going to be perfect!!!.


Fun shopping on the US side! I wonder what it's like in Canada. But I have my new passport so maybe someday I can find out! enjoy the day with your DS. I think it sounds like a good day of.




Thinking of you today....we are going to a chess tourney for my birthday. LOL I know that is a strange request but all five of my kids will play in the same tourney and I will be happy to have them all at the same one. btw, I like your hat in your avatar. I love hats...also LOVE scarves and they are ALL OVER the fall catalogs this season...I can't wait! I am soo glad you are.



SOOO good to see you posting on.


You sound soooooooo much better today! LOVE that your scale is dropping for you! Medifast works! "If you work the plan, it works for you!" is another Medifast saying. ~smile~ You have a whole team of.

PINK sisters.

Behind you (AND a real sister....


, are you lurking still from the T&M thread (which we lovingly refer to as the 'dark side')? LOL).


, sorry about the not good OP day, but you are doing the right thing about getting back OP ASAP..


Is the best thing for us to drink and I keep reminding my kids that it is FREE! LOL.

>>>PL likes free stuff<<< Your signature goes right along with our new fall.




You made it sound so simple to put that video on.


And there have been many.


Who have tried before! LOL. We had a good storm come through last night and had to get up and turn off all the laptops and lost electricity. We needed the rain but not the strong winds. Actually we could use more rain, I just wish it would rain and not storm, lol..

Congrats on 150s and on to the 140s!!! you are doing it!! gotta feel good!.

Yes, PINK has lots of "battle cries". woo hoo! Reminds me of that scene from Braveheart:.

Instead of freedom from the English...think freedom from the fat! hee heee LOL.

Hi, Pinks! I can't believe it is September already!.

Thanks, PL, for the cheering! I needed that!.

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale?.

I must admit, I weigh almost every day. I have a scale at home in my bathroom but it weighs a lot less than the one here at work. I use the one here at work because it also weighs ounces and it is calibrated to my doctor's scale. I jump on the one at home just to monitor if I have lost, but I use the one here at work Monday through Friday..

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)?.

Besides being a mom to some pretty amazing people? I would have to say the one I currently have. I am the senior legal assistant in my office and this is my career, not just a job. I love it and am very loyal and devoted to my attorneys and my firm..

3) What do you wear to sleep in?.

Depends on if hubby is home or not. If he is home, I usually don't wear anything because I love curling up with him. I feel safe with him there (he's 6'3", 300 pound, heavily tattooed big bear - but a mushpot). When he is at work third shift, I usually have on sleep pants and a tshirt...

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale? I weigh in once a week. I used to do it more often but it just made me crazy. And I keep the scale in the bathroom outside of the shower near the jacuzzi. That way I can't miss it..

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)? I used to work on the lab "hot line" that physicians called when they needed information about tests, results, etc. That job actually paid me to read journals to keep up on new techniques, etc. I loved that!.

3) What do you wear to sleep in? Hmmm...depends on the weather and where I am. At home in warm weather, it is usually a pair of (sexy) lacy jammies....hard concept, I know. At the cottage, it is usually a tee shirt. However, winter times usually find me in FLEECE!!!.

Back OP today...I will NOT do any more back-sliding!.

Hugs to all the Pinks......

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale?**It depends on the meals I consume but I'd say at least every two to three days. My scale is in the bathroom so morning is good!**.

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)?**I love working critical care on an ambulance!**.

3) What do you wear to sleep in?**In the summer....tank top and panties..in the winter...fleece pajamas**.

WIW: 172.

Height: 5'5".

So, I'll chalk up last weeks no loss to my new gym regimen. I'm actually feeling very good but have noticed that I have to be careful about the length of the workouts. I"m finding myself very hungry later in the evenings and tend to lean toward the soy crisp snacks. In the past, I had a slower loss. At this point, it's not a bad thing to go slower but I don't want to become discouraged..

I hope everyone has a great OP night. I'll be doing an online tutorial on balloon pumps for cardiac patients. lol Have a great night...

My HW:.

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale?.

I do best when I weigh daily but I don't panic if it flucates on a daily basis (unless I deserve it.) lol I keep my scale on a piece of plywood on my closet so it will weigh more accurately than on the carpet. I have a full length mirror behind my mirror and weigh in the buff in the mornings. My DS cut a board to be the right size for my scale , made the edges pretty and then stained it to match my dark bedroom furniture..

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)?.

Hardest job I ever had is being a mom. The kids don't get easier with age! LOL (I just get older.) But my favorite job is Health Coach (HC). It keeps me on track on my own weight loss and is blessing in so many ways to help others..

3) What do you wear to sleep in?.

Heee heee...this is a long standing PINK knowledge that PL sleeps in the buff!! LOL.

It's the best way to sleep (I don't like night gowns getting tangled around me when I sleep.)..

Reminds me when I was losing my weight, my skirts got longer! LOL and I would step on them on the staircase! LOL ....here's another funny thing I noticed as I lost weight: my necklaces got LONGER!! (as my neck and shoulder thinned out). Isn't Medifast amazing!! woo hoo!! Medifast works! you go, girl!!.

My Team PINK's Wednesday Homework:.

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale?.

Well, I'm a closet daily weigher, now. I need the scale to motivate me to stay OP. If I see a gain I look back at what I ate, what I did (exercise,) and how much water did I drink, what condiments did I use, to see if those are the cause. Just like I can't eat the cracker or soy crisps, they seem to slow my weight loss down. So now I've omitted the my Medifast "I like" list..

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)?.

My most favorite job is being a mom. My job consists of so many things but I think this will sum it up and hopefully make you all smile or laugh, maybe both:.

Mom: Job Description.


Mother, Mom, Mama, Ma, Mommy, Momma..


Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an, often chaotic environment. Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call. Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities. Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required..


The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5. Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf. Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers. Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects.

Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next Must handle assembly and product! safety testing of ! a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices. Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product. Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work throughout the facility..


Virtually none. Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you..


None required unfortunately. On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis..


Get this! You pay them! Offering frequent raises and bonuses. A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent. When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more..


While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth and free hugs for life if you play your cards right!.

3) What do you wear to sleep in?.

In the summer, just bra and panties. Winter time - T-shirt or night shirt on top of what I wear for summer, plus socks...

Setae, Those are great pic's of the "light" damage. I remember a couple of years ago in Jan. we had a huge wind storm and the power was out at our house for 2 days, my family and I could hear the trees across the street swaying and snapping....kinda scary!.

There were many trees down across our main road as well. We have huge trees around here, Redwood trees that are a million miles tall, but in our back yard we have Pine trees and Alder trees that we need to have topped off because they are soooo tall and they could fall on our house. We have cut about 2 or 3 trees down in the last 12 years, but we need to cut or top off a couple more. That's a task my husband is trying to figure out because he cut the last few and he thinks that a professional should come in for these ones because they are so big and a couple are right next to our house. I am so glad that you guys are safe and sound!..

Yes, those Cinna Preztels are good and they take care of the crunchy snack craving and are as good as the crunch bars; I did not order those this time so we will see how it goes. I will have to order the crunch bars next time tho because I like them and I'm almost out. I like to have a variety of snacks. So your DD1 is doing Medifast too? That's cool it gives you a Medifast buddy....YEAH!!! I want my mom to Medifast with me, but I think she's more into another program...can't remember if it's Medifast or something else....see she like different types of foods than me, she is into more frozen lean cuisine meals and she doesn't care for oatmeal. I love oatmeal. She does like soups and shakes tho.

Good luck with that slummber party! I'm sure it will be fun! You might need to catch up on sleep the next day tho. Live, love and laugh! Then sleep!..

I was talking to a chessmaster the other night, a GRANDmaster, actually. LOL and he likes to hike mountains in his spare time.

Hi all!!!.

PL- all that white water sounds COLD!!! I actually did a rafting trip in South Carolina when I was in Girl Scouts about 20 years ago! OMG! Did I just say I have a memory that is 20 years old?!?!?! that makes me feel so old!.

Speaking of old, we have a LOT of September B-days here! Happy early birthday!.

Meshka- have you tried the oatmeal as a bar? I put one oatmeal pack in a small bowl (the size of the brownie tray) and 1/4 cup of water and microwave for 1:20. I let it cool for about 5 mins, and it's almost like a chewy granola bar. YUMMY!!!.

Aileen- My DH is also 6'3 and weighed 300 (now at 275 due to work and exercise) but, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Snuggling up next to him! I have found that I can lay up next to him, and kiss him now without having to move too much! THANK YOU MF!!!.

LOL at your answer about favorite job!!!! TOO funny!!!.

That is a great feeling to have!.

I read that you put your scale under your bed. that means you have to drag it out each morning? is it digital? If it is digital it needs to stay in one place so it can caliborate or "settle" or whatever it does to give an accurate reading. I don't move mine for that reason....i don't want to mess it up. lol I have to weigh on carpet so my son made that wood platform for me. Is there somewhere else you can keep it that it won't have to be bumped around?.

Sharon!!!! Wow! she has realllllllllllllllllly grown up! I remember even older pics of her ...she's beautiful and growing. Be proud, momma!.

Setae, ANOTHER typhoon so soon?? eek. What a cool way to compare your kids from now and ten years ago!!! amazing what ten years will do. makes me want to cry!! I know if I did that age comparison to my kids like that I would be choked up....my empty nest is coming...in ten years and look how fast THAT goes by! Beautiful girls! Which one do you think looks the most like you?.

FGS, nice OP! oatmeal bars, GREAT idea. Good for on the road. Yesterday was an all RTD day for me. Today I have already had two and about to have my third. I love RTDs and used to order one case a month but with the traveling I did this summer I upped it to two cases a month and now am spoiled. lol They are just tooooo easy!!.

I don't have a pic of my kids to share ATM but we just finished a project so I will show that instead. A few years ago my neighbor gave us an old vanity that my boys have been passing around (without the mirror) for a while now but I decided my daughter is growing up and needs a vanity. So my hubby painted it white to match the rest of my daughter's bedroom furniture (daybed and armoire) and put the mirror back on it. I was trying for a Pottery Barn kids look. see link, but for free! woo hoo.

Team PINK's Wednesday Homework:.

1) How often do you weigh? And where do you keep your scale?.

I usually weigh everyday once in the morning and once before bed....this way I have an idea where I'm at....this week has been different tho, I have forgotten to weigh a couple of times and after I've gotten in the shower I remember and say oh well next time..

2) What's the most favorite job you've ever had (past or present)? I would say when I worked at the mill as a Block Picker(I also got to fill in at other stations) but really enjoyed switching to the Clean up crew....I had more freedom and din't have to stay put all day..

3) What do you wear to sleep in?.

I wear a short sleeve night gown....don't care for pants unless it's winter and freezing out side then I layer up with the night gown, pants, sweat shirt and booties...then I wake up and take all of that off except the night gown and go back to sleep...LOL...

I work critical care on an ambulance. We only transport SCTU (specialty care/critical care patients). With today's insurance, you'd be suprised what insurance companies will put critical patients through in order to get to the right facility. It's really a shame how ill some patients are that have to get ground transport simply for insurance reasons. I understand when our helicopter can't fly but most of our runs should be lifted..

We do heart cath standbys at several hospitals and do balloon pump transports when needed along with trauma transports to level 1 trauma centers. Basically, while monitoring the numbers and helium...we're troubleshooting the machine. If anything should happen in route....i.e...balloon deflation...machine errors....we have thirty minutes to get them to a hospital and get the balloon out...

Yes, DD1 is doing Medifast with me. She got really upset when we took her clothes shopping. She had DH and me both trying not to cry, that's how upset she was about her weight. She started about 2+ weeks after me and finally het her 1st goal on Wed. - she lost over 10lbs. She is losing slowly, but she's losing.

I think us doing it together makes it a little easier. But we still have a ways to go. She passed up a slumber party because she said she knew she would not B able to stay OP, even if she took her meals with her. Made me sad, so we are both determined to stick with it and lose the weight so we can start enjoying island life and stop watching it from a far. I am definately going to mention camping to DH.

But we might just wait until next year. Depends on DHs job..

I understand, I was just panicking , just a wee bit, since I hadn't heard a peep from U. That vanity turned out great! Tell DH he did a great job. R U still going 2 change the knobs? I think DD2 (the one on the left with the big brown doe eyes), I've got friends form HS that swear she's like my twin. Funny thing is DD1 always gets mistaken for me. Its weird. Especially on the phone, even my family can't tell the difference between our voices.

My own sister has done the same. I think DD3 look more like my DH..

I forgot to say where I keep my scale for WEDs HW - I keep my scale in the dining area connected to my kitchen. I leave it in the corner & don't move it..


Found out this morning that Typhoon Kompasu did do some damage up north @ Okuma Beach & Recreation center. The eye passed over them and left downed trees, loss of power & communication. I think we were lucky to be down south. The place is closed at the moment while they do repairs and stuff..

I am sorry that it made you guys feel that way, but it would have made me feel the same if my DD was going through that as well. I get sad when things happen to my kiddos that shouldn't have....I totally understand. I'm so glad that she has hit her 1st goal...what a great feeling for her and you guys as well!!!

Dear PINKs,.

I am sorry for the delay in reporting in today....been going non-stop and am here now and need to ketchup but first gotta this to say:.

I am having my bday party at a three day chess tourney! LOL ALL FIVE of my kids will play at the same tourney (which is rare) and the chess folks will celebrate with us. Since my birthday falls on a long holiday weekend (which are traditional chess tourney weekends) then I thought to combine them. My kids think I'm crazy! LOL I am imaginig a family fun time. Three years ago I saw a picture of myself at my husband's 40th birthday party...it was horrifying and that led me to MF. So when starting Medifast one of my goal was to get my weight off before my own 40th. I didn't make it completely but OH WHAT a difference 150 pound loss will make on a body! LOL I am half my former size! ....*sniff* now....I am getting all choked up and teary-eyed from the thought..

The picture that started it all:.

(((Love you all and thank you for being PINK with me))))..

Hi PINKs,.

It is a.


Day outside...my DD must be feeling better from her earache because she is walking around outside enjoying the sun with cooler temps from the rain storms we had last night. I was looking out the window at one point XPECTING to see a tornado coming at me on the second floor!! LOL.


AWESOME OP sign you made, thanks for the link! I will try it! So glad your DD is learning healhty LG eating habits now and will get some weight off and know how to keep it off for life. Losing weight and maintaining is something that we all need to teach our kids as a life skill. Good job!!.


, aren't you the one that mentioned Garnet Hill the other day? I just got their catalog in the mail and J. Jill catalog. OH I love that one!! I drool at the clothes...all the fall catalgos are starting to arrive in my mailbox and looking at them inspires me to keep losing the extra weight. I want cute clothes in smaller sizes! LOL about the slots!.


, You put up a new avatar!!! You look GREAT and I can tell you have lost weight!!!!! You are beautiful!! Love the pretty flowers in there too! Now we need to get your weight loss ticker set up in your signature. Those are fun to make on the Medifast "community home page" look on bottom left corner for "ticker factory" then follow the steps. When you get to the last step it will give you a code. Pick the one for the 'discussion boards' then paste into your signature like you did the PINK banner..

You look sooo happy! Medifast works!.


Kids are exhausting. plain and simple. lol I like your chilaxing word. How are you doing on your water? When you think you want to BLT, first guzzle a whole bottle of water in one guzzle. That will help slow you down to give you a chance to come up with an escape plan. (((hugging you))).

My DS1 is loving his college classes. He is dual enrolled and comes home at night and tells me the funniest stories about his professors and classmates. Being homeschooled his whole life, it's pretty excitng for him and he tells the stories to make me laugh so much I have to hold my sides. LOL I like to sit on his bed and just let him talk. I cherish those moments!!!..

Yes... hairline fracture of my tailbone which included a grade 2 slipped vertebrae from a nasty horse accident 26 years ago. I now also have stenosis and pinched nerves from the slip and my weight..

I have also had stress fractures in my foot as well as a small fracture of my ankle. Oh and a broken finger... WOW, I guess I didn't realize I broke that many things..

Hello to eveyone else ... here is a cheater post (copied from another group I write with): for those of you who don't know me well, we have a family orchard with a cider house and estate winery..

The farm was hopping today - lots of customers - lots of families coming to pick apples, run on the trials and stroll through the walking gardens - I love it because people want to be there and I for sure feel like a better person there .... MIL had the formal dining room set for dinner tonight - I love that! during the summer we get more relaxed and eat outside but there is nothing like us all sitting around the dining room, laughing about the day and eating gramma's cooking (there are usually 15-20 of us)..

Happy (belated) birthday, PL! Hope your day went well!.

LeeAnn, I love to hear of your time on the farm. It sounds like your family is pretty special. Thank you for sharing these stories with us. Fall apple season here, too always means a trip to the orchards for us to pick apples for a couple of pies and some home-made applesauce. It is a ritual we have enjoyed since our kids were toddlers. I still love it!.

FGS, I will tell you what everyone here tells me....GET BACK OP right now! Cheating only makes us stay fat longer...LOL!.

Now, having said that, I am going to fess up: I was WAY OP this weekend. Or at least I tried to be. Talk about bum luck...for our anniversary I had decided that I was going to go OP for just one meal. We had decided to get some take out food to have in the hotel room on our way to Boston Saturday evening, so we stopped at an Italian place near the hotel. David ordered a meatball sub and hot wings; I thought I would order a Greek salad (dressing on the side, please) and a (gasp) piece of pizza! I ordered just one, figuring that was safer than ordering an entire pie. I mean, if I was going to be OP, at least it wasn't going to be a blow out.

The sub smelled wonderful. The wings looked great. The salad was huge. The pizza....wasn't in the take out bag. They had forgotten to put it in with the order! I checked the cash register receipt, and sure enough, it was on there and paid for.

Even planning to go OP didn't work! So I ate my salad and drank a diet Pepsi and that was that. Bummer!.

However, my NSV came the next morning when I took my shower and wrapped the hotel towel around me...with room to spare! Here at the house we have those gi-normous bath sheets, so I wasn't aware that I fit into a regular size towel!.

Hugs to all the Pinks!..

You know whats worse than being off plan all weekend? Having to own up to it and confess... I dont know what has gotten into me (besides off plan food!) Maybe the fact that I was running low op Medifast and decided to "stretch" it out. Well that didnt work!!! I was doing SO GOOD!!! I am very angry with myself! This is abou the same weight as I was when I went off plan last time. At least I recognize it this time. 3 days late, but recognized none the less... I think that I am at a weight right now where people are starting to notice, and I am starting to feel better about myself, and I think that one little off plan meal wont hurt.

1 leads to 2 and so on... I will not rob myself of my goal this time! I WLL BE OP TODAY!.

My shipment is somewhere in my city right now, so when I wake up, maybe it will be on my door step! I WILL BE OP TODAY! I WILL BE OP TODAY!!!.

I am here and I am OP...but need some serious ketchup. lol ("catch up" with things, not the red stuff. lol).

I had a long three day birthday weekend but am ready to get back to life now. The weekend tourney did not turn out anything like I planned. lol The kids that I thought would do well didn't and the ones I wasn't expecting much from, did well...but we all had fun and made a lot of memories..

This morning I started with LOTS of water (going to be perfect with my water this week) and a Swiss Mocha shake. I hadn't had one in a while and it was good. Then for my 10am, I had a Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal and hadn't had one of those in a while either....They are quite filling!! ...guzzling more water now.... Today I am taking my younger three on my walk with me. We all need to stretch our legs daily and SO MUCH of our lives is seditary these days. I've got our route planned out, something new.

Setae, LOVE your OP signs! You have some serious creativity running in your veins!.

Today I cleaned out all my big jeans and all my "fat tops" and put them in bags to take to Goodwill. There was one top I kind of liked, but I put it in there, too. Good riddance..

Because I've been a yo-yo dieter all my life, I have sizes right on down to my smallest, so I got the next size of jeans out of the basement. I like these a lot better. In fact, the ones I didn't like, I put in the Goodwill bag, too. Some were a bit big around the waist but small at the knee, and my knee isn't even swollen anymore, so out they went. I'm going to have clothes I like!..

FGS, get some sleep!! ((hugging you, nite-nite. lol)) Be careful and once you get back into the fat burning state to protect it ....i am preaching to myself too. "Protect your ketosis" is one thing I like to say..

Sharon, how are you today? thinking of you..

Leita, AWESOME on getting your bigger sizes OUT of the house! good ridance is right! you don't need them and you don't want them!.

If those sizes are out of the house you'll never go back to them. Onward and Downward to goal!!..

Hi PINKs,.

Here are some pics from this weekend...somehow I got throught the weekend without anybody taking a picture of me..

We forgot to take the camera to my birthday dinner, went to the car and then back in, only to find out it didn't have the SD card in it. LOL.

Anyway, here is pic of DS4 at the tourney (my youngest son). He was suppose to play in a easier division but there were not enough people so they combined it and he had to play tougher oppoenents. This made me decide not to take him to anymore adult tourneys for 6 months or more..

And this is a pic of my oldest son DS1. He started college classes now and is lovin' it. I still remember him as a little kid, more like the size of my DS4 is now. they grow up so fast!.

And this is a science experiment my DS3 and DD did...there are three layers: syrup, water and oil and the rock is at the bottom, the grape in the middle and the cork floated on top..

I am just having fun playing with my new camera. I need to get a case for it so I carry it in my purse without it getting scratched up..

Anybody with Actual Factuals and/or NSVs to report??..

Hey FGS, it was nice while we were camping...Fri. was pretty warm when we arrived about 6ish, Sat. was pretty hot when you were in the sun, but that night it started to get pretty cold while we were sleeping and I started to cover everybody up with more blankets. When I got up I noticed that 2 of our doorway bottoms were unzipped and the breeze was flowing right through our tent...my DD did that the evening before...grrr! So Sun. was windy, but a warm wind and Mon. was pretty hot in the sun...so over all it was pleasent..

Today is my DS1's 9th Birthday....he had a wonderful day. We brought cup cakes to school for him and his class. We bought him a skateboard and a helmet...he loves it. Now for his pizza party next Fri..

Hope you had a better day today. Don't feel bad about going off plan...I did it to this weekend....I had a great OP day today and I am moving forward again...that's what counts!..

Hello PINKs!!!!.

Sorry for being MIA all weekend...my cell phone battery was low and I didn't feel like hanging around in the bathroom and let my phone charge...LOL.

Today was my DS1 9th Birthday and he had a very special day. He had brought cup cakes for him and his class mates to share, played football in the drizzle/light rain, came home and the family had an oreo cookie ice cream cake(not me tho...I stayed OP!) and he opened up his present from us ~ a skateboard and a helmet, he just loves it!! We are planning his pizza party for next Friday night..

My NSV for today was staying totally OP!.

7:15am shake.

9:15am oatmeal.

12:15am vegetable beef stew with whole grain crackers.

Had 2 infusers today...1 in am and 1 in pm.

3:00pm chicken noodle soup.

6:00pm chicken breast and tomatoes.

Team PINK's Friday Homework:.

1) Got plans this weekend for Labor Day?.

Yes, We are going camping and it's my birthday....last year we went camping and it was both my b-day and then my DS1's b-day....It's starting to become a Labor day weekend tradition for us..

What's your plan of attack to stay OP?.

I packed my Medifast and lots of water...oh and the joggin stroller for walks with my DD...she gets tired of walking and then she wants me to carry her, she's 30 lbs and it gets tiring after awhile..

2) What do you collect?.

I would say pictures/video's of my kids and family. I have tons of them and still take tons more. I love to capture every moment...LOL.

3) Have you ever broken a bone?.

Yes I have. When I was about 10 years old I was skating at the roller rink and was waiting to cross from the middle of the rink to the other side of the rink and was knocked down by an adult and his skate landed on my right arm....this frctured my elbow and broke my wrist. Then about 2 years ago I slammed my right baby toe into the back of my couch and it swelled, bruised and was pretty sore to walk...the doc. said I broke it. Then last year I slammed my left baby toe into the back my DS1 foot and it was swelled(one of those instant stops your kids make right in front of you...didn't hurt him, just me)...not sure if I broke it, but it hurt...I never had it checked out...
