I'm in for the next challenge, and no vacations scheduled for this one - just the HOLIDAYS APPROACHING!.

My start weight is 218.2..

And this is weight, OP, and water? (or exercise?).

Pam, I am SOOO sorry you cannot get relief from the back pain. I struggle with this daily, am on meds. Currently working on it again after much walking on vacation. I will hope that you can get some rest and recover before much longer. Does ice/heat help?.

Happy to have all these enthusiastic KISS'ers in the challenge! Good luck to all of us! Lillian..

Lillian I'm so glad you're back for our challenge! The moist heat has been helping the most and it is getting better but much clower than when I usually throw it out. Today is the best it has felt all week. I may still see if I can get in with the doc tomorrow. My grandmother on my mothers side had herniated disc and so did my Mom and her 4 siblings. I wish I could change my genes the way I can change my jeans! LOL.

What kind of back problem do you have?.

Hopefully we'll get 4 more folks tomorrow to start the challenge with us!.

Hugs and G'night,..

Hello all! My starting weight I'll say is 184.0 but honestly it's wobbled around a bit the last few days by about plus or minus a quarter pound. I need a distraction because my husband decided to start Medifast and he's an awful whiner. While my first few days of transitioning into the weight loss phase were rough, I just napped and got over it. He's sitting here grumbling at me constantly about how he's bigger than me and needs more food than me and the bars taste awful to him and he was much happier doing Atkins diet blah blah blah..

And THIS is why I told him he needed to read the literature. However, he'll never listen to me on that count. It's placed a much bigger burden on my efforts to stay on plan because I have to plan his meals as well as my own because I like a far wider range of vegetables than he does. While I can throw together a fast meal of veggie-burger + lettuce with a sprinkling of vinegar with maybe some other steamed veggies on the side he will only eat one of 4 different vegetables so I have to not only stock huge amounts of fresh tomato (which I don't eat) broccoli, asparagus and mushrooms (also that I won't eat) but I'm essentially having to fix twice as many vegetable dishes as I would normally. the only good thing about it is that my daughter has a HUGE variety on her plate LOL..

That's enough venting for now. I hope your back starts feeling better Pam and here's hoping to best for everyone trying to lose lose lose through the holidays!.

Hope we come up with enough folks for the challenge!.

I love your jeans/genes comment, Pam!.

I have a herniated disc (L2 L3) and something called spondylolisthesis. (my spine moves on itself, and can pinch the nerves). I am so much better because of exercise ( I could originally only exercise in the water which kept the pressure off my back).

With lots of physical therapy, months of swimming, 10 sessions of Rolfing (a deep tissue massage technique) and MEDIFAST!!! the weight loss and increased strength have made it much better. I am even taking a beginning Pilates class to strengthen my core muscles. I still can get myself in trouble if I don't exercise, or even if I do too much walking (the walking makes the spine compress) but I can go up and down stairs, walk more than 10 minutes, and I have reduced my pain pills to one a day..

Instead of spinal surgery my back pain medical doctor told me he would rather I have lap band ! When he made it clear that the weight loss could make that much difference in my back pain, leg numbness, etc, etc it just gave me MORE reasons to lose weight. But without the success of the Medifast program I would not have known how much better I could feel, and how much more I was capable of doing. It has been a lifesaver - finally, something works! If I do the program like it is designed, I WILL lose! It is such an empowering feeling!.

Hope the moist heat continues to help, and slowly but surely you will come back around! Take care, Lillian.

Even if we don't make 8 we can still challenge each other, and connect on the board!..

Last night I got notes from Sizzlingchef~~Patti and from Mishymel~~Micchele who has been with us before. Toni and I spoke last night (it was sooo nice to talk to you Toni!) and she has also worked hard to get more folks on board. As of right now I know of 7 but Toni may also have gotten responses too! I fwe don't end up with 8 WE ARE Going to do the challenge on our own! We are doing to well and this is the time of year where the support brcomes so important..

If you don't feel like eating OP, drinking your water, or exercising today.....DO IT ANTWAY!.

That is the advice from Linda Spangle who has done Medifast herself and has now published a few books about sticking to a healthy lifestyle!!!.

Have a great day KISSers!.

Good evening Pam and all the Kissers. My name is Patti (SizzlingChef). I can be found on the Melting MFers along with Pam but I decided to join you in the Harvest Challenge. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and am very excited to be a part of this journey with all of you..

I have been at this program since March, 2008 and just need to jump start and get my head on straight. On 10/6/09, I became a grandmother for the first time and on 10/10/09, I lost my Dad to a 10 year battle with cancer. I know that he is finally at peace and I can now concentrate on me again. It has been a bitter sweet roller coaster ride these last two weeks but I plan to get my act in gear. I have a hubby, two sons, one dil and a beautiful grandson Nathan..

My starting weight for the challenge: 256.2.

I wish you all much success and look forward to posting here and on your thread.. Thanks for having me, Patti..

I am home with a sick child today- yes, "the" flu, so I hope to keep everyone else healthy..

I have been sticking to the program through some big challenges with my kids and I did not eat over it..

I will do it this time!..

Hi ladies - I was posting on the wrong thread...duh! Rainy yucky day here in the northeast, but will be out and about soon..

I have been motivated to stick to this plan so many times and just crumbled. I am hoping this time gets me to goal. Someone from the shamrocks posted something that has had me fired up and on plan for the longest time in over five months..

"It's a mind game every single day. SOme days are way freakin harder than others. How bad do you wnat it? That's all it comes down to. My belief is that every time you give in you become weaker. Everytime you get through a day, giving it everything you 've got - you become stronger. Your boday and most impt your mind..

After five months of staying the same I found this so motivating..

WIll check back in later - looking forward to chatting..

I am so excited to be on a challenge team with you guys. Glad we are back on the same team Pam, missed ya!.

For those of us who have lost & regained, and are back to "get it right"... Do you feel more motivated this time? I know I just want to get to the finish line, and go through maintenace correctly this time, and really keep it off! It's very frustrating..

What's motivating me today.. is this group. I am very competitve, and these challenges really help me stick to the plan, lol. I think that's why I like the wii fit so much, I am constantly trying to do better than I did the last time..

I am envious of anyone who doesn't have to deal with the Halloween candy. We have so many children in our subdivision, and alot of people that don't even live here, come to trick or treat here too. We always have lots of candy, and usually run out. Being a mother of two teenagers, I really think it's cute to see the little kids with their costumes..

I love the motto...


This plan really is simple.... just not always easy.. and I agree with the other ladies, this is definitely mind over matter..

Great to be here!.

What is Motivating you today?.

Today it would have to be that I put on my usual clothes for work, and they are too big!! my butt is sagging! lol.

Melissa- I do feel motivated, however, I was always motivated to do MF. After the very first time in 2008 I couldnt afford it anymore. Then every other time I got back on was a medical issue. Still trying to figure it out, but lately been feeling good so no worries for now.

Got my Water bottles out! I LOVE the water bottles from trader joes. They have a sporty top which makes it easier to drink, AND it holds 23.6 oz of water. Easier to keep track of. I drink 3 bottles at work, then a smaller bottle at night, then sometimes more. I am NOT a water person, I am addicted to Diet Coke Plus or Coke Zero!.

Hi everybody! Sorry I haven't had a chance to stop in yet. It's been a little nutty around here since I returned from the wedding in Wisconsin. Just now getting my head back in the game..

It snowed here (looks like two feet out my window) yesterday and today...in fact, it's still snowing. That makes it hard to get my walks in. I did get a Wii sport/fit thingy for my birthday. Anyone have any advice for setting up a routine? I like to run and walk and I hate lifting weights (boring). If there's a routine that you've programmed that you think would work for me, I'd love your feedback. I haven't had time to set up anything other than a little person who looks like a cartoon of me...and I just did that so I could go bowling and play a couple rounds of golf!.

For me this is my Plan:.

I already have my celery! I'm cutting it up putting in Ziploc bags and taking it with me. Tonight is Family Fun Night at church and I'm bringing my bags with me. Same thing tomorrow night. It's after that is going to be tough for me. There will be candy in the house for weeks. My plan for that is if I'm tempted I will drink a bottle of water, write in my journal taht I can have that piece of candy later.

I will crochet for 30 minutes and if all that doesn't work call my coach...

You are worth it....we are all worth it. Once in the groove let's try and stay there. I keep repeating the words " How bad do you want it" I really want iT bad this time- more so than the candy which will ultimately make me feel sick. Today has been crazy since a 5 am wakeup from my cat the escape artist ( we put them in the basement at night and have a cat door which locks but they have figured out how to open it and how to pry away the tape we put on top). Cat was snuggling with me when the dog decided she would have none of that on HER bed. Dog lunged and growled at the cat, cat jump over my face adn now I have a huge scratch across my lower eye and up my forehead.

Will take pics - Hubby is a gladiator. Have to leave to go back to the kid's school for more Halloween festivities and then later this evening back again for a party....THEN my time to party with hubby. My plan is to have all my meals except for one and then bring a bar if I get hungry. There will be Karaoke which is always fun..

Good morning! Today the snow has stopped here (I'm in Denver) and the temps are predicted to warm up. With over 2 1/2 feet of snow, warmer temps should make for a nice big sloppy mess!.


, your plan for surviving halloween sounds iron clad! I love the celery idea. We probably won't have much trick or treat action around here tomorrow (snow is too deep). DH usually mans the candy bowl at the door, so I shouldn't have any trouble. I'll just keep myself busy online!.


, I've heard of Tae Bo but have never seen it. Is that a Wii Fit add on or a separate thing altogether? And yesterday came and went and I never did get around to fiddling around with setting up a routine. To be honest, DH hasn't showed me how to turn the machine on yet!.


, that Beck book is pretty good. I got through the first half of the book or so and then put it away for a bit to let it all sink in. I like the book because it's easy to pick up and put down often and always gain some new insight. And congrats on the new scale progress!.


, boy do I feel for you...I once had a cat scrape claws across my sound-asleep face during a leap off the bed toward the window. Not a good way to be awakened.


Your halloween plans sound really fun. Can't wait to see costumed pix. And what is the deal with you and McDreamy anyway?!!! Inquiring minds you know....

Hi Faith.

Toni are you getting the right amount of fat and water? Our bodies do need that fat and the water. Dry lips can be a sign of dehydration. Anything with caffiene can contribute to this and I know how you love your diet coke.

Make sore your drinking at least 1/2 your weight in water oz. Example if you weigh 200 pounds you should drink 100 oz of water. I know you don't weigh that much but round numbers are easier to work with.

Good evening everyone. I am SO glad it is Friday! It has been a crazy week of running around. Lately I have had an average of a one hour drive between patients. Crazy, but it's ok because I don't mind driving as it is my only alone time. I listen to KLOVE and get a lot of good feelings from that..

This week has been a struggle for me though. I switched to a lower dose of my blood pressure meds and I gained two pounds of water weight.

I can live with that as long as my BP stays down, which it is. But I have been struggling with cravings all week and today was REALLY tough. I wanted a Togo's Sanwich SO bad! I LOVE sandwiches and I ADORE Togo's. I miss bread so much it is not even funny. I had myself convinced that I could have one since I had gained two pounds anyway, so what difference did it make? I would start over again on Sunday, that would give me a chance to have some pizza with my friends after church tomorrow night, right? LOL! The crazy way I make excuses. Anyway, I fought and fought with myself and went past Togo's, but it was very hard.

I was not hungry and I was trying to figure out what it was I was needing that food seemed to be such a good idea at the time. I never did figure it out. I actually tried calling my cousin-in-law but she was not home, I told her it was a food emergency (I think that is what got me laughing at myself). Then I thought, I'll call KLOVE and request an uplifting song....no go, I could not get through, it just rang and rang and rang and rang, and then my wireless service would come on and say the call could not be connected. It just cracked me up more because I am not one to ask for help or support, ever...and the one time I try I get doors slammed in my face.

So I did and I got over it. Boring, I know, but it was an interesting story to me.

Toni, I get dry lips too. I keep chapstick in my car at all times. I know I drink enough water so I assume it is the caffiene. I REFUSE to give up caffiene! LOL!.

Well, have fun at the party Michele. Thanks everyone for all your comments and stories about your lives throughout the day....it is fun to get on here and read about everyone's day..

Good morning KISSers! Lucky for me I am not a huge sweets person. I do enjoy candy bars and have totally overindulged in mini bars on Halloween before, but it is not as big a problem for me as a full course Turkey dinner at Thanksgiving! Give me those rolls and mashed potatoes please!.

Have an awesome OP day everyone..

Faith - your story was inspiring not boring. SOme days are sooooo hard and you totally talked yourself out of what could havde been a disaster. Taling to yourself really works wonders sometimes! Those two pounds will go fast, just a fluctuation, not a real gain - you know that..

My candy is all set up by both doors and my middle dd is at a Halloween party. WIll be leaving soon to pick her up and then go trick or treating with the kids. GOtta see if the little guy will put anything on..

Party last nite was terrific. Lots of dancing, laughing and singing. I will post pics as soon as I have my computer back - I am on hubby's laptop now ..

Have a great day.

How is everyone doing? We are done with trick or treating! YAY!!! It is pouring out so I don't think we'll get anymore trick or treaters. I bought a candy that I really, really dislike to hand out so no trouble for me with leftover candy..

Tomorrow is the first of our weigh-ins for the challenge! If someone is up and on before me feel free to start the thread.

Tonight, when you see something you want to eat, but shouldn't, try the "it will be here next year (or month, or week). Sometimes, I do better if I just make myself think I am postponing the treat, not denying myself the treat..

Today is turning out to be a good OP day because I had a great weigh in today, and it has me so stoked! I am feeling totally re-energized, and makes me believe in the Medifast program all over again!.

Good luck to everyone on this week's challenge weigh in! Lillian..

Happy Halloween everybody!.

Got the grocery shopping for the week done, the laundry just about done (folding takes me f o r e v e r!), house all straightened up, managed to get my Wii Fit routine all set up...it says I have the physical body of a 36 year old...HA! Good thing there's not a camera attached to that thing..

DH is in charge of the treats tonight for all the little goblins so I'm not even going to look at it! And the annual family pumpkin carving contest is just about to get underway. DH and I started that when we were dating! It's just the two of us...he always lets me win..

I hope everyone has a safe evening whatever your plans. See you tomorrow at weigh in! (appreciative that our weigh in does not involve sports bras and network television!).

Hi girls. Made it through a rainy halloween. Not many trick or treaters and the baby fell asleep in the pourning rain in his stroller so was promptly returned home. Girls had fun though and the rain didnt deter their spirit. Loads of candy in my house now and the funny thing is I dont even have a desire to eat one single piece. THis is very unusual bc I usually pour through the candy and binge on it for days.

I am glad everyone seems to be staying strong and motivated despite the holiday. Liliian I think the way you are looking at it...that there will always be a time for these treats in moderation...is a wonderful plan. I am trying to keep that in mind every single day..

Jeanne - thank goodnes no sports bras and tv is right!!!!.

Morning Kissers,.

I finally have some good news to report about my SIL. She was able to move her legs and hands last night. This is a very big improvement over the last week and a half. The doctor still says that she is critical but at least she is responding now..

Now to the challenge. What is motivating me is the fact that my SIL did not take care of her health. I have seen up close and personal what that can do to you. So I am determined to take better care of myself from now on. I will be making sure that I stay as close to program as is possible for me. I am going to have to incorporate an exercise program into my plan and I will be getting in all my water.

In the last week and a half I have managed to gain 1.8 pounds but will be working very hard this next week to get that and more back off. I'm not going to beat myself up about it because I was in some tough situations during the last week. But I am glad that the gain was not any more than it was..

Ladies, we can do this for ourselves and we must do it for ourselves. No one else can do it for us. We are worth every minute of every day that it takes up to make this journey. Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday loaded with NSV'S and lots of water and good eating choices..
