Thanks! I didn't know they made a ranch one - I went to the store today and bought their last bottle!! I used it on my salad tonight and it was better than nothing....I think I'll have to use a little more than the recommened serving size tho.

Hi all! Hope you all had a great weekend.

WOOHOO I lost two pounds since Friday! I managed to do pretty good this weekend. We had no special gatherings. My hubby and daughter went our for brunch on Sunday. They brought KFC home on Saturday night....that about did me in. I broke down and had a chicken breast but that was it! I only have 5lbs to go to get where I was in January, then I will feel truly back on track!

I had a stressful day on Saturday. My husband's wallet was stolen. He had set it down on the counter and forgot it. When he went back to look it was gone! I had to cancel cards and we had to call the police to make a report. Such a pain and now have to worry about identity theft! I became son anxious that I had to take a xanax. I haven't taken one in three years!

Am much better today and have to trust things will go well!

Rockiand Crystal great job your weight loss!

Crystal I can't wait to hear how the Zumba class went. It looks like a lot of fun, but I can't imagine myself doing this!

Momofboys The center is having a shopping class on Monday. It is a fantastic class and I learned so much from it! You should see if it works in your schedule!

Thanks to everyone for the congrats. I'm positive that I'll see a good drop on Thursday @ WI. I think the weekends (no matter how strict I am) throw me off. I know I don't drink as much water as I should and I don't always get ALL of my drinks or pills in either.


Crystal..WOOHOO on that 3.5 lbs! That's great! Be sure to let us know about that Zumba class. Oh, where do you get these jeans you mentioned?

I got free samples from one of the others too. Thank you for the coupon code though. That might make enough difference to warrant ordering from them. I'll have to check it out. I'm still stalling on placing my order. I bought those 5 boxes today so I have another week now.

Also their grape concentrate is the same as the centers (I think it's called barichoice or something like that). And, if you put save10 in the coupon line you save 10%.

Great! I'm right on it.
I take these minerals too. They say it's supposed to help with energy (at least the ones they sell @ MRC anyway). However, I haven't noticed a darn thing. I'm still always tired. I don't have leg cramps though (but then again, I never did, except during pregnancy).

Ok, this will sound silly, but are you on the right or left in the pic? It's so small and you both look so young. What size are you in now @ 135 and what about your daughter? You both look very thin! I'm wearing mostly 6/8 now at 139.5, but I'm only 5'2" so I have a lot in my belly area still to get rid of. Can't wait to start wearing mostly 4s (maybe even 2s, that would be crazy).

UGH!! That KFC would have sunk me! I LOVE KFC. I could eat a whole bucket of chicken, a box of biscuits, a tub of potatoes, a tub of cole slaw and a tub of mac and cheese if you let me! Sorry about hubby's wallet. That just totally sucks. Also feel bad that you had to take a Xanax. Hopefully everything will be okay and get settled down again soon.

The chicken boullion is my favorite - love to use it with leftover veggies & chicken for chicken "soup".

Zumba Update: Wow! That was so much fun! I love to dance, so it was a great way for me to sneak in some pretty intense cardio. My work, kids, & hubby's schedule will only make it possible for me to attend one class a week, but I'd love to go to all 4. This morning I'm really feeling it in my legs. And, arms. And, back...
