    Jill (aka gggoodgggirl),.

    Can I just tell you that you are amazing. Truly you are my inspiration (as well as Fraulein Steve). My sister began this journey exactly one month after I (just this past week). She has seen in only a month how motivated I am and we don't even live in the same state. Everytime I see helpful links on the boards, I try to point her in the right direction. This posting here really has "grabbed" so many useful tips, techniques and processes for all of us. So many thanks and I'm so rooting for you to get to your goals! awindycitygirl (Diane).

    Thank you!.

    My medifast center is having a "meet and greet" on Nov 10th and I am going to bring some of the suggestions. Especially the brownie one (which I now do 1/2 brownie 1/2 PB soft serve).

    First, let me just say that I just started today and have been a bit overwhelmed. UNTIL NOW. I just spent the last 30 minutes laughing hysterically at some of the information shared in the posts. I've experienced so many of the things talked about...such as leaving a protein shake my 100 degree car...with the lid on, only to get in and the lid explodes leaving the most horrific smell EVER! Thanks so much for thinking of the new folks. I officially have the will to continue!.

    PS...ever notice how people who need to lose a few pounds can laugh at themselves so much easier than the folks that have been thin all their lives and are professional self proclaimed fitness godesses??.
