Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. It was very cold here today even though the sun shined all day. Got most of the house all cleaned up, still gotta work on the extra bedroom and some more laundry...

Hi all,.

I had a tough week. I'm not sure how, but I think I slipped out of ketosis, or perhaps I was just stuck on a plateau. Either way it was yucky. Perhaps it was because I was so desperate to get out of the 240's and it wasn't happening fast enough. But I did squeak out a 2.5 pound loss. So I need to be happy LOL...

Thanks Donna for posting that... just haven't had a chance to do it. I've been out doing things with hubby and getting to the appts we have to get to..

I went to the neurologist for followup appt. Good news... another testiment to Medifast!!! All the labs that are normally off for those with gastric bypass and large amount of weight shed in shorter amount of time... were completely normal for me!!! (potassium is the only one I've had troubles with). My B12, copper, zinc, and TSH were normal! YIPPEE!! Anyways... the MRI of the lumbar spine was more eventful...

However the MRI results looks worse than I feel... so I guess that's ok. She asked if I wanted surgery... I said "no". We are still trying to locate the reason for the loss of feeling in the leg.

She is going to talk to me more about my headaches... since head injury too. I had asked her if she would mind... especially since I am going to need more midrin (headache meds soon). She said she definetly would...

A woman who gets to the point of the matter! YIPPEE!! Of course the next thing out of my mouth was.... "how stable is my back? Well, I mean, can I still sandboard?" LOL She smiled and almost laughed and said... "Ya, you can still sandboard!" and she put it in my record... "ok to sandboard" Gotta love her!! And at least my hubby heard it from her mouth!.

She agreed with me that for muscle toning and exercise... sandboarding is harder than running! LOL.

Then she said... "You really aren't going to sandboard anytime soon are you?" "I mean, it's cold, and wet out there..." I told her I did just recently and that there is wet board wax and dry board wax for sandboarding. So then she asked me if I was going to go snowboarding instead. LOL I told her my niece said she'd teach me! But I preferred the sand where I could go in shorts, tank top and barefoot!.

Anyways... more pics up on the website. I had an unhappy mother-in-law on the site that we weren't traveling 8 hrs one way to see them.... I made John call her tonight... at midnight... as she was posting. Sometimes they just don't think about the logic with their reasoning!..

Weighed in the Medifast center I go to. 2 more pounds gone! We also measured and did the Body fat analysis machine. I have lost 68 inches and gone from a BMI of 44.8 to 31.4 and Percentage of Body fat has gone from 51.7% to 29.8% (almost normal for a woman!)..

WOO HOO. I have about 10 more weeks of loss that I have paid for, but I might add a couple more depending on what I end up with in 10 weeks!..

Yeah Marni. You are so rockin' this program..

I painted my toes last night because I just know that any morning I could wake up and be at my goal. This is not an official weigh in, but this morning I snuck on the scale and was at 135.6. Yeah me!! .6 to goal. I have not weighed 135 sense I was in my late 20's - early 30's and I will be 50 in March. I am so excited..

Good morning (well afternoon now) Cori..

It is really quiet in here. I guess that I am not the only one who has been extra busy...

Marni!!! YOU are amazing!!! And Donna, You too!!!.

I'm trekking along here... I'm down 20 pounds with Medifast and 50 pounds overall since August..

Also, where are the team challenge results? Do they have them posted anywhere?..

I received this message from Chick... AKA Yankeefan for the Dream Team.... Regarding the challenges. Any thoughts?.

Subject: Future Challenges.

I'm pretty sure you know that Sue has retired for good from the scorekeeping of the challenges. Some of my team members are interested in continuing and need to continue through the holidays. What about your team?.

There are a lot of little challenges popping up, so some may join them as well. They want to stick with our Dream Team, but are afraid of the holiday havoc..

I was thinking we could do the weekly stats like always, then use a common thread for each team just to post the results. Without a scorekeeper (no, not me) we wouldn't have a summary or six week overall, but people could see how the other teams are doing and celebrate each other on a weekly results thread..

Any interest?..

Several bulging discs and an annular tear (ligament tear). According to the MRI results I should be in horrible pain all the time with my back. Funny enough... I'm not. So no surgery for me. I have had a lot of back surgery patients in our Skilled/Rehab facility and their MRIs look just like mine.


No explanation for the nerve though in the leg yet. I'd lost feeling in the leg before I started Medifast. Ignored it...cause it was probably related to my weight I thought. Well, As I've lost weight and such... I've noticed it more... probably cause I thought it would just go away as I lost weight.

Better get to figuring out why... and if anything can be done for it than get it done. Surgery was not in my line of thinking.... nor will I go that route unless it is essential to my quality of life..

So I go in for nerve mapping on Dec 29th and find out what if anything they can do. The neurologist is going to start looking at my headaches post concussion too. Cause I need to have a renewel of my headache meds and noone is really doing anything about them or following them right now. My Dr would eventually refer me to the neurologist for those anyways... so might as well start with her now...

Good morning all. Just wanted to drop by and say hi. I will not be joining the challenge as I am less than a pound away from goal and I would be a negative effect on your numbers. My goal for the last challenge was to be rid of 10lbs and I lost 11.

, my reward was to have my nails done and I have done that. Amazing, I am so into taking care of me and I love it. I just hope that my excitement continues. My New Years resolution this year will be to KEEP this weight OFF..

DH and I will be going to a Christmas party for DH work tonight at Ciccarellis, then on to the Mill Casino. I am excited; I bought the cutest little black dress, size 8.

, YEAH!! I will post some pictures over the weekend..

Happy Friday, have fun...

Denise ~ Way to go on your 16.5 lbs gone for this challenge !! Your Rocked IT Girl !!!.

Donna ~ Great job on you making your goal. I know you worked so hard. I remember when you were trying to get over that 160 hump so you could get your Wii...now look at you!!!.

Keep it up. I hope you will still continue to come here and over at the OP board. It's nice seeing you.....

Today I am washing all sheets and doing some cleaning. We have two parties tomorrow and I have a Ladies party on Sunday, where they do the present game...where you can steal gifts from each other then they are frozen...very fun..

Have a great Friday everyone !!!..
