Good morning! I am brand new here. Received my Medifast in the mail yesterday and will be starting tomorrow. Wondering how it will all taste, how hungry I will be ect..anybody have any insight for me or guidance? I am 48 years old but feel much younger! We recently moved from Ft Knox Kentucky down to Ohenix Cit Alabama, quite a change, but change is good and that is why I chose medifast!!..

Morning!! So good to see you here!!.

To be honest with you, the first few days will be a little rough....once your body gets past those days and into the fat burning state (ketosis) you will feel GREAT! We have some people in our group that have just recently started and I think they will agree that it is worth the "somewhat rough" first few days!!.

Everyone has different likes/dislikes as far as the food goes. Try something and if you don't like it...save it and pull it out a little later...amazingly our tastes change and something we may not have liked in the beginning is yummy to us later!!.

This program is AMAZING!! It has given me my life back! Good luck...keep coming here and let us help encourage you and support you!!..

Good morning Jemmies! Thanks to.


For starting the new thread and for.


For providing the link..

Welcome, new friend! Medifast is a great program! It is an adjustment at first, but once you hit the zone, stay there and Medifast will be the vehicle that will take you where you want to go! Stay close to the boards the first week. Read success stories, visualize yourself at goal........get it set in your HEAD. That's where the battle is. We are here for you. You can do this!.


- thanks for the compliment! I'm not finished yet, but I do feel great. You guys are going to have to help me determine my happy weight, k? In the past I have had a hard time grasping reality, so I need some HONEST feedback from people who understand. I am at 141.5 as of this morning. I'm thinking 135 or 130 might be a good weight for me. We shall see..

I have a bit of vacation hangover. Can't seem to get motivated to do anything, yet I feel a huge tidal wave of work coming in this direction. Yikes! Can I lounge or just one more day?.

I am down to the dregs of Medifast foods. My order should be coming this week sometime. Guess I'm going to have some soup this week. LOL.

Drink up and have a great OP day, everyone!..

Thanks for the kind words and support, Monica! I did have a lot going on, but I think that's why this program works for me. It is so simple! It took the guess work out of losing weight, and I could concentrate on all the other craziness going on in my life!.

Yes, I ordered my ring while I was at the beach. When it arrives I'll take a pic of my goal ring! I plan to look at it everyday and remember to NEVER go back into my cocoon...

Hey, Hey, Hey - This ole Grandma is back..

I've been at DD's house doing the graveyard feeding shift for 12 days and then my DD & I went to Fire Island, off the coast of Long Island (an ocean community that you take a ferry to get to - no cars allowed). We just relaxed and took it easy. I am totally in love with my sweet G-dtr. She is such a blessing - eats, sleeps and coos. I really enjoyed haviing that time with DD and her family, it was the best. I missed all of you so much and I am looking forward to things getting back to normal.


THERESA - I loved your pictures, you look gorgeous - beautiful and so full of life. CONGRATULATIONS!! Many thanks to you for all you have done to organize, and inspire our group. I will always be grateful and appreciative for your many efforts. You will surely be missed. {{{HUGS}}}.

DAWN - Thank you for posting the new thread - so nice of you to do this. MMMWWWAAAA!.

Welcome to the new Jemmies - This program is the best, I know you will do great. Looking forward to getting to know you..

Hey girls, so some bad news. I am ALLERGIC to soy. I am on my last 3 packets of soy free stuff (hot chocolate) and then I am out until my next shipment so I am distraught as to what to do until then but I cant risk continuing to eat all this soy..

Another issue I have been having is kind of an unknown illness. It started on wednesday with severe side pain and back pain ( I have felt the back pain before back in march when I got a kidney infection) and this feels very similar but the side pain is what is worrying me. I had my gallbladder out about 8 months ago and the pain is in the same spot so I am concerned that there might be something wrong ( something called after cholestectomy sydrome). I am going to the doctor tomorrow so please pray that they can find what is wrong with me and get it taken care of because I am in a severe amount of pain. Anyways, just wanted to let you girls know I havent dissapeared. So far eleven pounds lost. I am pretty proud...

I have a pretty lay low day, Was sick in bed most of yesterday but cant stay there, my back just screams when I lay down for too long. My throat and lungs really hurt...So I am going to do some gentle excercise and wash windows - YIPPEEE !!

Hi all!.

Sorry to be MIA, really busy weekend. No loss this week... I was on track then hopped up TWO LBS!!!! I also got my "friend" the same day... early... grumble... so I'm half blaiming that but also I went to a grill out and even though I withheld the bun I'm thinking those things are not the best for you diet wise...

Work harder this week.

Ren Garb update:.

I didn't go for the red fabric for my skirt ladies though red is my favorit color. I just found a really nice gold fabric for 99 cents a yard (turns out is should have been like $3 per yard but someone had placed it in the wrong bin. The cashier was very nice and said she'd keep it at 99 cents since it was their mistake) So this week I will sew it up and show the pics of my new outfit for the Ren Faire....

Gonna catch up on posts while I'm on lunch break!.

HI all you wonderful Jemmies,.

I've been out all day - went to Costco after PT then stopped at DD to drop off some stuff I got for her at Costco. Actually I just wanted to get some snuggle time in with Liv LOL. I'm OP today - glad to be taking care of myself again. I realize that being tired makes me vulnerable and not so eager to put in the time and effort to prepare for myself. Ahh, I still have so much to learn. I'm hanging in there and I want to do better.

I'll be back later..

Good Morning Everyone,.

Mo - Hey you, hope you are feeling better. Good to know that you are back on track. Feels good doesn't it.

I had an OP day yesterday too. Somehow it's harder to do this once you've gone off. I don't know why, just is..

Bttyelam - Welcome to our group.

Looks like you are off to a great start. I love the puddings too. Adding ice to your shakes makes a big difference. I like adding left over coffee to my chocolate shakes to thin it out after adding ice cubes..

Dawn - You're getting ready for school? Our kids don't start until the day after Labor Day - when do you go back? I can see that you are very ambitious - garage sales are exhausting. It will feel good in the end though, your house will be rid of any clutter and you'll start your school year with everything in order. Hmm, that sounds really good LOL, maybe I'll get started too. I did a little walking yesterday and I was thnking of you doing your C25K. How's that going?.

Sarah - Bah on the water weight - don't let that get you down. Look in the mirror and see the beautiful woman you are and how far you've come. You're a hottie, GF.


Shannon - I'm sorry you are going through a difficult time. I hope your doctor was able to help you. I love your bright attitude, hang in there sweetie..

Tricia - How did you make out with your labor problems. This is a crazy time for you. August always seems to be the time that schools are scrambling around to fill in positions that open up right before school starts - very stressful. Good Luck!.

I'm going to work now and then meeting up with friends for dinner. I'll try to check in later..

Have a great OP day - DRINK UP AND KEEP SMILING..

I am on day 3 of my restart and so far so good. Have to go to a dear friends 50th b-day luncheon today at a mexican food resturant and will order the guts of the steak taco and eat it, sit as far away as possible from the chips and salsa and drink, drink, drink my h20. Ilike eating my L & G with my family at night so Iwill save my Vegies for tonight. I went a little high in calories last night 1200 !!!! The Turkey is high in calories, low in fat, but 5 oz of the ground Turkey was 333 calories ?? how is that ? I'm bummed kinda bc I cooked up 5 - 5 oz Turkey pattys and broiled them for a few dinners this week and now I see how much it shot my calories up at the end of the day. Big bummer. I'm liking the omelet thing so much better so much lighter calories and tasty..

Ok my loves I am off to the Dr. for me , The dentist for Mason and then errands beore lunch..

Hi Jemmies!.

I had a rough weekend. My girls went camping with their Dad and his girlfriend. This was the first time in 3.5 years that he has even taken them overnight. I don't know why it upsets me so much still. I get really jealous and that is so not like me(at least it never used to be like me.) It makes me mad that he does things with his girlfriend that he never did with me for 20yrs, even though I used to ask him and wish he would (you know doing family stuff.) Its like they were a happy little family...they cooked together, played board games and went fishing...so of course my girls think it's just great! ARGHHH!!! I was lonely and depressed all weekend. Feeling sorry for myself...wondering once again why I wasn't good enough.

I hate when I feel like that. Anyway, I did not do so great but didn't do really bad either, not like it used to be. I stayed OP most of the time, but ate when it got to me too bad. I still need to work on that I guess. I wonder though if I will ever get over this stupid divorce and feel worthy again..

I had to express my feelings because as we all know, this battle is not just a battle against the food we put into our mouths. For me it is so much more; I can look back at my life and see exactly when food became my enemy, yet I still cannot make peace with it or figure out why I cannot get a hold of it and fix myself. I do not understand how I let it, and continue to let it, get out of control. It frustrates me and saddens me that food and the effects of it have such a strong hold on me, my life and my future..

Thanks for letting me vent!!..

Hang in there Melissa!.

One thing about Medifast and losing the weight I really learned to love and respect myself in a whole new way. I was always pretty confident but now it's much different I can't quite describe. It's pretty crazy to think and being that I always was comfortable with myself (never had cared to diet in the past cause I was happy as I was, finding out I had PCOS was what made me decide I needed to drop the weight) I didn't think I could improve my thoughts of myself nor did I think I needed to, but wow it's totally different... and like I said I can't quite describe it! I hope this diet and the success of it builds in you what it did in me, it's really quite a trip!..

Melissa, Hang in there, I second what Mary said. This is his journey, it's been 3 1/2 years you gotta let go and let God .. Sometimes it takes us being "pushed" aside so that the miracle can happen, and by being mad all the time you allow "it/him" to steal your serenity. Own the.


And make it.


!! Hang in there, eat to fuel your body..

- ok off my soap box.. love you !!!.

Sarah- Your getting so skinny, I LOVE, LOVE your dress, I think it ROCKS! and your doing this program just great! It shows !!!.

Dawn- I am sure the heat and getting ready for your garage sale would wipe anyone out. be sure to drink up and get some rest, you have a lot of little monkeys that are going to be "hanging" around soon, (school) and you need to be rested up !.

Deb- My Girl !!! so GOOD to see your pretty face ! Miss you chica,, be good out there !.

Bttlem- Your doing this, keep on the straight and narrow path. Its a good one. Drink , Drink, Drink, and rest when you can , bc when next week comes WATCH OUT your gonna feel like a new girl!!! I PROMISE !!.

Mary- Good choice at dinner, I am so glad you had a 100% OP day, I did too. I went to lunch for a friends 50th @ mexican and I ordered a steak taco w/o cheese and just ate the insides of it, dank 3 tall galsses of water and talked and talked , didnt miss the chips and salsa. I did notice how everyone was just inhaling them and the bite size chocolates by the handfuls that I layed out on the table for decorations..

I decided to not go to the dr. cancelled and went about my day. I feel better and rested. I also have been 100% OP and feel good, a little crusty in the chest but over all good. I am glad to be back on plan and feeling like I have control over this "for now" ..

Gotta go train a client and Lifeguard for a few hours. _ gotta get my Tan on ....

See you all tonight..

Hi Jemmies,.

I had to read 3 pages just to catch up on the posts! Go, go, go! I love the chatter..

It's been a busy week for me. I am leading a Worship Arts Camp, and today we had a family photo shoot. We have NEVER done that as a family, and I wanted to have some professional pictures taken before Kelsey goes off to school.

It's been an emotional week too. We are working through many emotions that have to do with leaving the nest and I think the girls are adjusting to my weight loss. Weird how when you change, it affects everyone around you. I've been kind of sad about some of the stuff, but know that it's all normal as they adjust. Anyway, without going into it, I have felt glad to have my Jemmie friends. People who have traveled this journey of transformation UNDERSTAND, and that is what I need right now..


- I hope the staffing is all worked out for fall. We have teacher training this Saturday and I'll know better then. It's kind of a stressful time of year, but exciting!.


- your dress is beautiful and you are looking fabulous. I'm so proud of you..


- You are so consistent, and such an encouragement to so many on this site. Bless you..


- I hope you are feeling better! What did the doctor say?.


- I've decided to call you.


Because that is what you are going to be. Itty Bitty. Congrats on embarking on what will be a life changing journey for you! We are so glad you are here!.


- From the pics on FB, looks like you are doing some great hiking. You still look very skinny, girl! I'm proud of you, too!.


- It makes me smile when you drop in with your supportive cheers!!!!! Focus on the good things happening in your life! You deserve all the happiness in the world, skinny girl..


- What's happening on your end? I need an update, please!.


- ug, how I can relate. Let me just assure you that God is an amazing healer. Let Him heal you because the plans He has for you are amazing. Receive it. Embrace it. LIVE IT! You are precious and deserve to be loved completely and unconditionally.

You are a new creation!!!!!.

Hugs to all my other Jemmies. When I get the link for the photo shoot, I'll post it for anyone who wants to take a peek. I can't tell you what an amazing feeling it was to participate without being worried about FAT. Amazing. Dear God, don't let me every go back to that bondage! Dear Jemmies, hold me accountable FOREVER..

Ha ha, well if you are ever in town I can make ya one.

I usually can find pretty cheap fabrics; the one I'm making for my friend cost under $15 when buying a dress can cost well over $100 so needless to say I'm usually pretty busy this time of year... I generally just charge a free ticket to the Ren festival and the cost of fabric of course...

Hi girls.

Went to the doctor today and he thinks that we need to do a CT scan and he did a urinalysis. I am still not feeling good, but he didnt bring up the after cholescetomy syndrom which is what I was worried about so he is thinking it might just be kidney stones. I hope thats all! Anyway will keep you girls updated. Decided that I will continue to do Medifast just using all the non soy stuff, so I have to wait for my next shipment of stuff before continuing. Kind of a bummer, but just been eating 3 lean and greens throughout the day. Not really losing but maintaining for now which is all I can ask for until I get these new packets.

I have been battling depression for a long time and being sick really brings out the anxiety and depression for me, but I just have to keep going. It looks like all of you are doing great, keep it up and look forward to seeing more progress!..

Good morning ladies,.

I'm gonna aim for drinking my water today... my TOM is messing with me, I proclaim I am a daily weigher, and this up two pounds down two pounds back and forth game is getting OLD! Think anybody would know what it meant if I got a little red dot on my wall to throw darts at?..

Shannon~Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Glad they are going to do some tests to figure out what it is that is causing you the pain. Glad you are going to stick with MF...I know your choices will be a bit limited with the non soy stuff....but you will still lose!.

Tricia~Good to see you...I was figuring you were getting ready for fall. Hope everything works out with that. Any news on the dating front?.

Mary~Hope you have a GREAT day. Love the energy you bring here...glad you are back!.

Mo~You have to be about in ketosis...hope that burst of energy comes soon!.

Jill~Miss you hon...are you back from your parents yet?.

Deb~Love seeing your smiling face give us our advice....how are you doing? Give us an update when you can! Love ya!.

Melissa~Hang tough girl. I can relate to the confidence issues and such. Medifast did so much for me on the inside during my journey. We are all here for you when you need a little love/reassurance...just let us know! We got your back!.

Off to run on the TM....have been running for 2-8 minute times and a 5 minute time9with walking in between). Today is 20 minutes all at once! WHAT? Hope I don't die.....

Just keep telling myself "you can do one more minute...one more minute!"..

Good Morning all you Sexy Jemmies.

It's so hot here, I spent the day at the ocean yesterday with my DD and g-kids. The cool breeze was amazing, not to mention the freezing water. The ocean never warms up here, so it's always refreshing. I took a nice long walk along the shore, it was just a great day..


- Your words to Melissa were very dear and I think they touched all of us. Your prayer about bondage touched me too. I've come to realize that I need to hand that over to God. When I hand it over to Him it lifts - His will not mine..


- Shake those blues away girl. Sorry, I'm chuckling along with Dawn, you are very funny even when you are down.

Feel Better!.


- Keep your spirits up and press on. I sure hope you get some relief and that your Dr. gets to the bottom of what is going on. God Bless You.


- Go Dawn Go!!!!!.

I love the way you put your mind to something and just do it - YOU ARE AMAZING!!.

I'm going to work now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Make it a good day, Drink up and get up and move around..

Hey Ladies,.

Got my new order yesterday so I sampled the mint chocolate ice cream and plain pancakes, then this morning I tried the chocolate chip pankakes..

The ice cream was pretty good... I need to chip down the ice a bit better then it will be great. The pancakes will be good once I can figure out how not to burn them... it's an art..

Hi Jemmies,.

I tried the pancakes last night and loved them! Very yummy! I haven't ordered any ice cream, but I put everything into my magic blender and add ice - hot chocolate, shakes, pudding, cappucino, it doesn't matter. It all turns into a yummy frosty. Can you blame me? It's 107 degrees in Texas today! ARGHHHH!.

It's been kind of a tough week emotionally. We have emotions about leaving the nest mixed up with adjusting to mom's weight loss flying around. I hate that my moment of glory lasted for about a day before the drama began. I feel like I climbed up a very tall mountain, put my arms up in victory, and then got knocked down..

You know me, I refuse to stay down, though. There is just a lot going on right now. I also have an enormous amount of business pressure at this time of year..

I would be interested to hear any stories or struggles about how others reacted to your weight loss in a negative way. I know people get used to seeing us a certain way. I especially need to be sensitive to the mother/daughter issues with weight. Girls do NOT want to share clothes with mom. Let's just say that..

On a more positive note, I have been leading a Worship Arts Camp all week. On Sunday the children will present the entire worship service using visual art, music, dance, drama, puppets, etc...........It is really cool and I enjoy being a part of this creative process each year..

I did lose another pound this week, so I am well on my way to my new goal..

My ring did come in, but I'm not thrilled - so I'm thinking about looking some more. When I am satisfied I will post a pic!.

Nothing noteworthy on the dating front. I haven't had much time. I have established a friendship with a guy who lives out of town. We've been talking for 8 months or so and he is coming into town this next week. A face to face will be interesting. You can never really tell about chemistry until that moment..

Love to you all. Have a great Friday!..

~I bought some pancakes (chocolate chip) and they arrived today...looking forward to sampling those tomorrow!!.


~I walk on the shore sounds awesome.....when can I come?! ??? (shhhh-don't tell! How about on the 16th when I am supposed to be starting school!!) You sound so great...I am so happy for you!!.


~WOW! As always, a busy bee!!! Sorry to hear about the emotions at your house. I know it is hard when the kids go off to college. At our house it was even an adjustment for my DS when his sisters went off. I read your blog this afternoon. It is tough when people can't/aren't happy for us in our new bodies. It's as if they (some people) liked us better the old way.

Hope things get better!!.

I have had a GREAT day today! DS had another golf tournament this morning. It was beautiful out for it and he came in 1st. Then I went to school and got some stuff done-feeling better about everything there. Making L and G for dinner now...hope everyone has a good night!! HUGS!!..

I think my husband got some jealosy pains and still gets them from time to time. It's pretty hard for him to complement me and it's weird I get more compliments from almost strangers at work. He even tried to convince me to stop the diet, "haven't you figured out what to do without the diet now?" Grrr... I can't really say I have any good advice for ya other than I feel your pain....

Happy Saturday everyone!!.

I have had some coffee, did my morning TM run/walk and am now off to do some laundry/house cleaning!.

Hauling all the stuff I sorted through last week off to goodwill this weekend. DH said unless I really felt the desire to sit for 2 days and have a garage sale, that I should just donate the stuff...so no garage sale happened here!.

Have lots I.


To do today, but may just take it easy and read for awhile, too! Hmmm...work or relax?!?!?!?.

DH and are going out tonight...looking forward to a night out...been awhile. We so need those occasional date nights (even if it is just dinner and a movie) He is so busy with work lately that it gives us some "down time.".

Hope everyone here is having a great weekend!!..

Hi Ladies,.

Sorry, I have to make this quick. We are going to a wedding today. The heat and humidity finally lifted and so this outdoor wedding will be fun and (Comfortable).


Sarah - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY - KEEP STRUTTING THOSE TAIL FEATHERS BABY, he won't care about buying the food.

Dawn - I won't tell anyone your secret - I'll meet you at the shore.

Good going on that walking girl..

Tricia - Sorry that emotions are riding high at your house. I have 3 daughters so I know what you are talking about. Envy is a funny thing, know that it's really not about you, it's about them not feeling good about themselves. Take a deep breath and hang in there, they will adjust..

Okay, I've got some work to do to get my sexy on for this wedding LOL..

Hey Ladies,.

Went to my friend's little girl's b-day party yesterday. It was pretty cool. I got to see the regulars that I normally see once a year at this party. I walked into the kitchen to get a water and I overheard someone say "OMG I didn't recognize her!" That was cool, plus got lots of comps. So that was a diet booster for sure.

Today I go to the Red Hawks game (Minor leage baseball team) in full rennisance getup in 90 degree weather... ha ha... this will be fun.

Anyway I'll be drinking my water for sure!.

Have a super Sunday!..

Good Morning Jemmies,.

We had a great time at the wedding. The weather was perfect and the setting on the water was incredible. It felt good to dress up and feel pretty and the compliments reminded me how much it's worth it to keep keeping on..

Sarah - WAHOOOOO on the NSV's. I bet you felt like a million bucks and I know you looked adorable..

Dawn - It's so funny about Deb and her Skinny Girl, she's always kicking my butt LOL..

Molly - Hey girl, get yourself on this site even if you don't want to. You never know what you will read that will inspire you and trigger something inside of you that will keep you going. I know when I don't come here I don't do as well. I think I'm okay, I don't have time for this right now - "WRONG" That thinking leads me to a doward spiral. So come on lift yourself up and JUST DO IT..

Hope all you great Jemmies are doing well - LET'S HAVE A GREAT OP DAY..

Hi Jemmies,.

I had a busy weekend. Saturday was teacher training all day. I have a great staff in place and excited for the new school year!.

On Sunday my Worship Arts Campers did two fabulous services. It was amazing. I love to see children in that pure and innocent act of worship..

Today I am hitting it hard in the office. My kids are on vacation with their dad so I am enjoying the no distraction time..

I have a couple of "friends" I am talking to in the evenings. I'll give you an update if anything develops, Dawn. lol.

I am meeting one special friend this weekend. We've been chatting on fb for about 8 months now, and have developed quite a friendship. (He lives out of state).

It will be fun to see him in person this weekend!.

Where are you.


???? I miss you!.

I hope you've all had an OP day. I swear I love the 5/1. I has become such a lifestyle for me I'm not sure I ever want to go off. Hah! I really enjoy the food and it is so simple!!!!.

Dawn, you are very pretty. I wish you would see yourself as others see you!.

Oh, I got my ring...........actually I didn't like the one I ordered so I headed to a jewelery store where I found another. It was more simple, but I liked the symbolism of it, so that left me $200 left over to buy a necklace too!!!!! I am very happy and I see my butterfly ring all day long every day. Every time I think of it I say to myself "You don't EVER have to go back into that nasty cocoon." It's a great reminder..

I'll take a pic soon and post it..

Drink up, girls!.

Good luck with your face-to-face meeting, Tricia! I can't wait to see pics of your ring, glad you found one you liked.

Hi Girls!!! I've really missed you all! I'm so sorry I've been MIA. I was gone a lot longer than I had anticipated after hubby got back from his trip, he met me and we spent another week at the lake house. It was wonderful. I'm back in town now and trying to readjust to "normal" life. Sounds like things have been busy for one and all!.

DAWN-you look HOTT in your new pict! Gorgeous lady!!!.

KATE-welcome home!! where in oregon are you moving? I used to live in bend....and have been to many parts of oregon since it's my neighboring state!.

TRICIA - hope things on the homefront are going okay it's hard because you're the SAME person on the inside - but your outside has changed...and with that comes a newer and happier inside as well...i know that sounds strange - but I think it's really hard for others who have struggled with weight see you succeed even though deep down they are probably very happy for you! I say GO FOR IT with the shopping and try the fours! I bet you'll be surprised!.

SARAH - way to go on the compliments!! you deserve them!!!.

LOVE and HUGS to you all! I promise to try to check in more faithfully!..
