To set up your ticker. Then when you want to update your ticker you just go to your bookmark, update and it will update it for you. No more copy and pasting. But you can still update you Medifast ticker for the boards. Let me know if you have any ???'s...

ROBIN!! W00T!!! Another mega-loss for your girl!! I know the feeling and it's not that TMI... I have not been solid for a couple days and feel like I am all blocked up.

I am hoping tomorrow my gut feels better..

Welcome Deb!!.

My NSV was fitting into a size 18 pants today... I can't believe it!! They are not old stretched out or stretchy pants either... from a size 24 to a size 18 in 6 weeks. It has been 14 years since I was a size 18..

On a different note... what is the Probation banner for??..

I not sure what's going on with me, but I sure am going slow again.

I'll have to really take a good look at what I'm eating... I know I'm on program but perhaps something is slowing my loss... perhaps cheese? or perhaps because I'm all out of bars and having to sustain on nothing but shakes... ??? Food comes Wednesday... perhaps then it will all straighten out. Till then I did get a 1.5# loss for the week and that is good on the heels of last week's 4# loss.

Welcome Deb!.

Hi everyone.

Boring weekend - watched a lot of football games..

Robin - WTG on the weightloss girl!!! WHEW!.

Marni - Still can't wait for the day I can walk into a store and buy a "normal" size off the rack. So many fun things out there.....in smaller sizes of course! By the way, what does NSV stand for?? Haven't been able to figure that out yet.

Deb, welcome to the purple team. I am fairly new myself. I will be finishing up my 3rd week on Wednesday..

Jessica, congrats on your NSV (still don't know what that stands for - LMBO). I can't wait to see results like that!.

Denise, glad you were able to figure out what was wrong but 1.5#'s is still awesome girl!!.

Alright peeps, I have to start getting ready for work. Ugh, we have a temp filing in for the other paralegal that is out on maternity leave and she is a real nutcase! I'm not looking forward to it. She blew up at me because I was on the phone with one of the bosses and I simply stated ".


Can't find it" Well, when I hung up she freaked that she doesn't like to be referred to as "she", that she has a name...yadda yadda. I was like C'MON!!! Its an english word, a sight word that my son was taught to use in Kindergarten, are you FOR REAL!! There was nothing offensive about it. This is only one instance. She also requests that her phone is on a specific side of her desk. A new one she said to me the other day was, "the next interview I go on I'm going to have to ask....do they want me to.


Or just.



This is what I have to look forward to...but I will try and bite my tongue (for as long as I can anyway). Have a wonderful Monday!! TTYL..

Hi everyone,.

It is a nasty Monday morning here in Beantown. We got about 5 inches of sleet and snow last night and it is raining ice right now. Getting to work was a *****..

Lost 3 pounds this week so I am happy. I kept track by week of where I was each week last year when I was on MF. I weighed exactly the same last year at this time. If I continue at the same pace I will make it to goal by the end of May..

Congratulations Robin on the 8.2 that is awesome..

Marni it is so exciting when you can shop in the regular size stores..

Denise - 1.5 is a good lose. Remember that some weeks are slower than others and somethimes it doesn't have anything to do with what you ate. I found last time around that every three or four weeks I would have a week that I only lost 1 to 1.5 pounds..

For those looking for clothes, I find that Kohls at this time of year has great deals. Everything is on clearance and if you have coupons you get a great deal. Last time I bought pants I got two pairs of really nice dress pants for work for around $10 on clearance..

Have a great Monday. Off to drink some more water......

Tonight is the night my kids come to work for dance classes and one has guitar. So the rest of my evening is usually as a referee... yay :/.

I got my grades for my last class of my associates and got an A (95.5%) even though the teacher was a @$%#*^%##!!!! and completely useless... Can't wait for the campus to be open tomorrow so I can open-up a can of OHNOYOUDIDNT!! on her sorry patootie..

1.5 pound loss is nothing to be upset with... you will flucuate with the amount of loss. When you first start... you get big drops. Then as you go along it steadies out a bit. You are doing great.

Be sure to use the myplan section and track what you are doing. Make sure the carbs are between 80-100 and that the calories are between 800-1000. If you start getting under the 800 mark due to exercise... you may need to add another shake..

Make sure the water is kept up. Sometimes you need to up your water intake a little too... But do try the myplan section if you haven't. Sometimes condiments and little bits of things will add up when you least expect it...

Thanks, I rarely eat any snacks or condiments except for salad dressing and a piece of cheese for my healthy fat... even then I am positive it is lite cheese and measured lite salad dressing that fits the program. I used to enter everything in on the MyPlan and agree that it is excellent. It doesn't work too great with my browser tho (Safari - known problems) and between that and slow satellite internet I get frustrated with how slow it loads and crashes..

I was mostly concerned since I was 100% on plan and was GAINING weight. I'm finally back down to what I was 6 days ago. I knew there had to be a reason and I think between the DS supplement and tom I was gaining water and holding it. I'm staying 100% on plan and getting at least 84 oz of water every day... I'm a little weak and light headed, so I'm adding a bit of iron and I'm thinking perhaps an extra shake might not be a bad thing until I feel strong again..

Food arrives tomorrow morning!!! Happy Day!!! I'll finally have bars again!!!..

Just got the kids off to school and finally have some computer time..

Supposed to have GS Brownies today if the weather isn't bad like yesterday. The school closed down all after school activities. We had thunder, lightening, hail and a tornado warning...all here in So. Cal..

Jessica ~ Like your new picture!.

Christommeg ~ I hear you with the carb count. When I'm looking for marinade for my meat...that one is a challenge to find low carb ones. I even have to count my splenda in my coffee and baking powder for when I make my oatmeal bread. 1 carb per serving. I used to be that way too...counting fat and calories. Now it's carbs and protien..

Keeping onplan and your water intake up scores more than the amount lost... so it hurts the team more when you do not (or several) do not achieve 7 and 7 for those. It is important to be truthful in your reporting... but at the same time that gives you motivation to keep onplan and your water intake up. Hence the reason for the challenge... giving you that extra push and motivation to put your team up on top..

Of course we do not receive anything monetary or gift wise... just the satisfaction that we did good!.

And of course the losses that will come with doing good onplan..

You can ask Cori on this one.... that was one of my goals!!! To be able to go into my daughter's room and take her clothes... for me to wear! HEHEHE.....

My daughter got a little nervous not too long ago... and managed to lose a little weight and go down one size. So when we went school clothes shopping she would be in a size I wasn't going to be at very quickly. Then she went through her drawers and gave me her clothes that didn't fit and smiled... LOL She had some 9-11's that were too big on her... and she has gone into 4-6.

Of course it goes vice versa too... she can get into my clothes!.

The first time I took my 14 year old daughter shopping with me to Wet Seal and Hot Topic to shop for me... she was very "scared" at the things I was getting. Of course I was trying to find things to "shock" her with. And now... it doesn't even phase her. She looks for cute clothes for me now too.

But nevertheless she is excited for me to get cute clothes and loves going shopping with me now. My Christmas present that her and my son went shopping for included a pair of pants, a dressy shirt and some very skimpy underwear.... so I know my kids see me as a "hip" dresser now... which is very fun!..

Google has a new internet browser too... it is supposed to be better than firefox. I use firefox and love it. I never use IE at home...

Great job!!! Looks like you have the highest total for the evening so far... if no one else posts higher than you... you can proudly wear the following banner... until friday (then you better work hard to keep up the water to keep the banner... cause I think you will have a run for your water on that one!) Remember to take out astericks only..

Robin has earned it... I drank 3.5 of my big bottle but I don't want to do the math... lol Maybe on Friday I will track it better!! I did buy 2 new water bottles for myself from Old Navy... one small one (17 oz) with the sipper-top to have at bed and another that is 25 ounces.... only $5 and some cute designs! I love the metal bottles..

OK, waaaay past my bed time. Hugs to my girls.

And thanks foor all of the facebook adds!!!..

My water goal for Friday is 120 ounces. That is after I do my second weigh in..

I cannot wait to get back into my daughters closet.....LOL....Actually she likes it when we are the same size (shirt anyway) I will never be able to fit into her petite size 1's.....Not sure where she got that from......She loves it when I can buy cute little shirts, it makes her wardrobe grow.........

I think that it's the magical combination of slow Satellite internet and safari... Firefox only gives slight improvement but it doesn't have all my bookmarks like safari does and having all the apps open slows down my macbook something fierce... I should probably reboot more often, but .....

Morning everyone. I was so busy yesterday at work that I only managed to get in 85 oz for the day so I pass the banner on to Robin. I will do better on Friday..

So work is really busy. I am the controller of a venture capital firm and we are getting all the accounting records and financials ready for the auditors. They come in next week. I have a great staff but at this time of year there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I hate to wish away time but I will be really happy when April 15th comes and goes. Financial statements and taxes will be done! And I will be close to goal!.

Have a great Thursday everyone...

Everyone has told me to do a Makeover. I have lost 83 pounds and need to be a new ME, well I decided to get a hair cut. I have found a person and now need the guts to make the appointment. I have worn my hair like this for 18+ years..... HELP!..

Oh, Marni!! Can't wait to see the pictures. Ask Kristie about hers. She has had a lot of fun with her makeovers. I remember one day that she walked into my office and my chin about hit the floor. I think I almost started to cry because she was just so stunning..

I have not changed my hair in about 5 years but I like it this way. It is very curly so wash and go works for me. I think my biggest adventure in my weight loss has been shopping for clothes. I used to HATE it and now I LOVE it...(picture DH working overtime$$$$). I cant wait to see what you do..

I got in about 80 oz yesterday. I don't know what happened. Early morning mammogram, busy at work and then I had an NRA committee meeting until about 8:00. I will be glad when those are over for a while. Our banquet is Feb. 6 so it is crunch time now and keeps me very busy.

So I went to the dentist this morning to have my temporary bridge remove and the permanent one put on. While she was cleaning the glue from the temporary she hit a spot that about sent me through the roof. Sooo... back this afternoon for a root canal before the permanent bridge goes on..

Well Im done with my oatmeal so back to work for me...

Hi team! I had issues with fiber capsules and didn't know it. I was taking one to help with constipation, and drank lots of water. So I started taking two a day, until my bottle ran out. Amazing how much better I feel.


The fiber tablets. And no longer constipated..

I'm still hanging in there; had to quit Curves cause I couldn't afford it any longer. Now I'm thinking about getting a roommate. So many things to think about, one of which will be food. I'm worried about that. Your thoughts would be appreciated!..

Yes... I love mine (new me styles)! and OMG... I don't know when the good income stops from John's deployment overseas... I have a major shopping problem!.

I hated to go clothes shopping... now I absolutely LOVE IT! I have never owned so many pairs of jeans. I never wore jeans. I can't wait til friday to wear them to work and the weekend to wear them on..

Actually I tried to talk my hairdresser into something more daring this last week. She talked me out of it. I was going to go shorter for hair. But... she said with how thin my hair is... it wouldn't be flattering.

I am finally starting to head down, down, down a bit more this week. Maybe because of no TOM now. I guess I better go adjust my weight ticker. LOL.

I need to keep thinking down down down before John comes home. I want to be noticeably smaller next time I see John (DH)...

Oh.. Marni... here's a tip!!!.

Tell your hairdresser.... or beautician.... Do something new... that is flattering for me!.

You'd be surprised what they come up with and they will usually do something you will fall in love with! That's what I did!..

I lost 8.2 pounds for the challenge this week!.

I was rather dreading weighing this morning because my tummy still feels so full from last night - like I need to have a good poop (sorry TMI)..

I don't want to eat. I'm going to drink a lot of water and hot tea this morning. I'll get all my Medifast meals in sometime today..

We have a huge storm coming our way. The forecast shows rain ALL week..

Need to go get ready for church...
