First off, Medifast Diet with hypoglycemia? Hoping for any answer or 2. Another quick question... Our beloved Water Cooler at 575+ pages was becoming too "MUCH!" Here is a brand new thread that hopefully will be a bit easier to handle, therefore easier to keep up with all the SuGaR's! (.

S.

Hrinking [u].

G.

Irls [a].

R.

Ock!) Let's all meet here now! (until we again become too out of control and have to start a new-new page..

).

The original post:.

Inspired by another 100+er, Stajo!.

I love her motto in her siggie and in her posts..

Says it all, SHRINKING GIRLS ROCK!!!.

I think we need our own version of the guys forum's "water cooler check in " thead..

Here, we can regularly check in, even just once a week, to let each other know how we're doing..

After the lull experienced here on this forum, we don't want to lose anyone..

Lurkers and newbies, you are encouraged to hang out here and post too!.

We all need each other for our long journeys as we are all in this for the long haul!!!!..

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

I think we should keep it here so new members with over 100lbs to lose will join us. Many of us had/have over 100lbs to lose and I think we should stay true to what this team was created for. Just my opinion...

I was kinda thinking the same thing but in reverse? That we started out having over 100 lbs to lose and are there OR well on our way! We can be the help that others in this situation need. The cooler was there for us, and should REMAIN for new members! Just thinking! For now, the cooler stays where it is! (Not my decision, just my opinion!) Hugs & Smiles..

I really think that this is where it belongs. It started here for people with over 100lbs to lose and I think we need to pay it forward. As people get to goal/maint then maybe we can have a separate thread for transition and maint but I think we need to keep this thread as what it originally was designed to do, help people with over 100lbs to lose...

Hello Shrinkers.

- I found you! I had forgotten that this thread was originally for 100+ lbs to lose. I guess I'm not on the thread I should be, but would love to stay and encourage others. I couldn't have reached my original goal without all of you on here and everyone's encouragement! I feel like we're all.

Shrinker Sisters.

Now!.

So don't kick me off!! Please!?.

So is that a NEW banner, or for new people that haven't been on here? I'm confused..

Hope you all are gearing up for the Super Bowl and are armed with OP options! I'm not a big football fan, but I do like the super bowl....oh and the commercials! Have a great time at your parties if you're at one. My hubby & I are watching it solo and having an early dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant before the game starts...

Well, looks like we've been doing a little house cleaning! Great idea! There have been times I check this website on my iPhone and if I choose the water cooler to read it takes forever to load..

I've been checking in once in a while but not too many people have been hanging around the cooler...(maybe the boss has been looking LOL) Maybe this will refresh us a little. Well I went the whole month of Jan without weighing myself. I don't think I'll torture myself like that again!.

I'm getting excited...I'm leaving on our two week cruise on the 19th and I cannot wait to get the heck out of Michigan. I love warm weather...I don't know why we ever moved back here after we were transferred to North Carolina for 8 years. We should have just told them "no" and found another job down there. Oh well, water under the bridge. I have my whole wardrobe ready to go. Now I'm vacillating on whether I should take a Medifast break for two weeks or not.

I'm not thinking of going crazy...just low carb choices...lots of fish and seafood...and maybe fruit if it looks good. At any rate if I decide to go off, I already have a huge arsenal of Medifast foods to start the day I get back..

One week after we return I am scheduled for my first colonoscopy. I don't know if I will get kicked out of ketosis doing that or not. I called the dr's office and they said I could do all diet drinks, chicken broth and diet gatorade...that I didn't NEED the sugar drinks like apple juice or pear juice. I think I'm going to try it the diet drink route. Who knows I may even lose some. I know I'm going to have a heck of a headache anyway...it might as well be for a good cause.



I got a iPhone4 today...my 3G died yesterday, so I going to sync it up and play with it..it does all kinds of cool things. DH got one too even though his 3G was just fine..

I'll try to check in more often...and again good job on the new, fresh water cooler..

Everyone is welcome here no matter how much they have to lose. The original Medifast people that started this was for 100+ and I think it is a good idea to stay true to that concept. Either way, we all have something to contribute here and I hope we get more people to stop in and share their journey..

- great question! I love to see what others are having for their L & G's. I just got home, so since I was gone all day, I picked up a roasted whole chicken on my way home (yea, call me lazy) and have some fresh green beans roasting as I type this in the oven (my favorite veggie!). Super simple and quite delish...if I do say so myself!.

EMT.

- the bugs that are going around in the midwest are NASTY!! Sure hope yours is short lived. Take care..

Hope you all have a nice relaxing evening tonight. I will be having my usual "brownie" for my nightly treat! I so look forward to it every night! Keep thinking I should vary it up a bit, but then the evening comes and I just can't let it go!! Must be a bit of OCD coming out!..

- they are roasted on a rotisserie that constantly turns. The fat juices would drip off I would assume as they baked in the big rotisserie. They may brush them with something, but I pick all the skin off and eat only the white meat - hubby eats the dark, so it works out perfect. One whole chicken makes about 3 meals for us. I weigh each of my servings so I get the right amount. So I would guess (hope) that it would be pretty low in fat..

This is how I roast my green beans. My store sells bags of ready to cook fresh green beans, so I dump them in a big bowl. Sprinkle with a bit of EVOO and season. Spread out in a foil release lined sheet pan. I usually use a garlic & herb seasoning mix. I bake them at 450 for 25-30 min, then move to top rack and switch it to broil for about 5 min.

We eat them with our fingers like fries! Both my hubby and my favorite veggie done that way. Although, I do cauliflower, radishes, turnips, broccoli & zucchini all that way. Try it, you'll be amazed at how good veggies are that way...

I fixed some Italian sausage (turkey) and grated zucchini for my L&G. I slice and weigh out the sausage and just grate the zucchini raw, then for lunch I nuke the whole thing for a couple minutes. I like my veggies with a little chew to them, so I don't really cook the zucchini so much as heat it!.

I usually will make a batch which is good for a couple meals. I also love to pick up those rotisserie chickens on the weekends if I'm in a hurry. I haven't tried roasting different veggies for a while, but it's about the only way I like asparagus. Now that it's on my mind, I may roast some veggies this weekend! Thanks!..

Not much happening here except the usual. Oh, yeah!!! The plumbers did not install a pump correctly for my washing machine and when it started to drain the water was shooting out all over the place. It looked like a geyser!!!.

I called the plumber (owner) that night and he was here first thing in the morning. I guess his guys caught heck for that one!!! I did not want to get the guys in trouble but they were late for their next job and just did not finish mine!!! Thankfully the washer is on the cement part of my basement as the rest of the basement is carpeted..

- I have had the turkey sausage years ago on WW, and you really can't hardly tell the difference. Now, that said, I have not looked at the stats on the package, so don't know what the cals, fat, carbs are on it. The serving size may very well not be the amount you can have of reg. plain turkey breast..

I just wanted to say....I love the Medifast fruit drinks now! Hated them at first, but now...YUM! Still not a big fan of the peach tea, but then again, I never liked any peach tea. The only reason I got those is that they were included with some tropical punch packets I got for a steal on eBay. I do find them very strong and sweet though so I premake them the night before and put them in 16 ounce water bottles. Then when I drink them, I put about a quarter of the mix in a tall glass with ice and top off with water. By the time I'm done, I've got one Medifast meal in with 6 glasses of water! I've been doing 2 of these a day. Since they are on the lower calorie, carb and fat count, it also gives me a little more room to experiment with my lean and green. Just wanted to share! Hugs & Smiles..

Love this one! Thanks for sharing! Hope all my fellow SuGaR's are well! I've had a very busy weekend. I taught an EMT refresher class on Saturday, and I work Sundays and Mondays, so weekends really aren't my WEEKEND! Less than 5 pounds to go before I get the OK to start the C25K. I'm so excited! Lunch time~ I intended to make the Thai Meatball recipe that's floating around the boards but had to sub ingredients....so they turned out more "Greek Meatballs" but oh-so-YUMMIE! I made a large batch and had to IMMEDIATELY freeze all but one serving or I'd be passed out in the middle of a pile of meatballs on the kitchen floor right now! Love ya all! Hugs & Smiles..

Happy Valentine's Day!!!! Love all the graphics!.

EMT -thanks for the info on the fruit drinks. I am saving those and the strawberry, orange and banana shakes for the warm weather so I have something new to try after 6 months on MF. Where did you get a weight threshold for the C25k? from your doctor? just curious b/c I've heard of ladies weighing much more than you doing it..

My scale finally started moving again - hopefully it will keep up the momentum!..

I've had bad knees, torn ACL's, MCL's, dislocated patellas, torn meniscus', and a fracture just below my knee a year ago Novemember. To protect the fragile knees, my doctor wanted me to get into the 180's (no longer obese) to minimize the "pounding." Just being careful..

I do love my fruit drinks. They are so thick and sweet tho' that I've changed up my method just a bit and the cran-mango is a bit off, but I've come up with a great tasting treat! The night before when I'm preparing for the next day, I line up 6 1-liter water bottles, (2 Medifast fruit drinks and 1 calorie burn infuser) my blender bottle and my magic envelopes, along with one of the new Ocean Spray Cran-lemonade packs (like Crystal Light) Each Medifast fruit drink is mixed in the Blender bottle and divided between 2 1-liter bottles then filled with water. So each meal gets you an additional 7 cups of water! The Cran -Mango gets the Ocean Spray pack, gives it a bit of tartness, and better flavor. The next morning, I've got 6 liter bottles in the fridge to drink throughout the day..

This method works for me, and is an easy way to up H2O intake!.

I know that the Ocean Spray full pack counts as 2 condiments and admit that I am usually frugal with my condiment choices, but adding this hasn't seemed to hurt me....personal choice though, for sure!.

Yay! on the scale moving again! Glad to hear that!.

Off to work! Hugs & Smiles..
