Thanks everyone

@Wannabechef - thank you Got through the weekend with a healthy amount of crankiness... hahah.

Oh, @Floralshorts, I am SO SO eager to hit Onederland, I can't even imagine it. I have quite a ways to go, you must be just walking on air

@Starlightmintz - sounds good I have been having my shakes with Torani Sugar Free syrup - specifically English Toffee. So. Freaking. Good. I actually need to order more syrup. They have salted caramel! Chocolate chip cookie dough! Lemon! all zero sugar, zero calorie, zero fat, zero carb, zero everything. Wheee!

As for myself, I didn't lose this weekend, but I know why. I definitely didn't drink enough water, and had too much diet pop instead. My own dumbness. I corrected it today (much easier at work - I drink from a big 3 litre jug all day)

WooHoo @Fawks!! Congrats!!!
I love getting into the next "10th" down (if that makes sense)

Lesson I've learned on Optifast.

Never.... ever... trust a fart.


That is all.

Good morning or whatever~

Goddess,
On the advice of other Optifasters I bought several Torani Sugar Free Syrups before I started but my nutritionist says not to use them! She says that we're trying to retrain our brain to not crave salt, sugars, and fat and that those syrups can make the shakes taste overly sweet. I'm not sure I agree with her thinking but I'm giving it a whirl.

I'm sorry you didn't show a loss this week but man, oh man just look at your weight tracker! You're doing so well!! :cp
... and LMAO @ "never trust a fart"

Fawks,
You are amazing! Keep on truckin' ... we're watching you!

Floralshorts,
Onderland is such a big deal! What will you do to celebrate when you get there next weigh in?

How are you doing, Happyradio?

I'm still transitioning into full fast. I get about 1200 calories in 3 shakes and 2 small meals. 6 more days till I can go on full fast woo hoo!

Little tips from my nutritionist/center:
1 prune a day to prevent constipation
1 soup or 1/4 of a bullion cube or 2 dill pickles a day while the weather is hot to prevent lightheadedness

I am new to this site but had questions about your weightlessness, so please forgive me If I am posting In the wrong place. How much did the optima set run you , did you find discount savings? Also did you have excess skin after the weightless? What exercise routine/regime did you follow?? Please forgive me if these questions are too personal but I really really need to lose weight

Thanks for asking, StarlightMintz. I'm in the middle of week 5. Doing well. Down 17 pounds plus I lost ten before I began Optifast 800. I like the chicken soup powder, peanut butter and chocolate bars, and chocolate ready to drink shakes best.

Hi,
Your questions are a bit hard to answer. The cost of an Optifast medical weight loss program varies. Sometimes insurance will cover portions of it. Optifast centers offer free informational meetings and I suggest attending one of those to get the particulars.

People often do have excess skin after weight loss. Genetics, amount lost and age play a part in how much loose/excess skin.

I have been having a horrible last few days, cravings-wise. All I want is for something savory, not sweet. At first I thought the bouillon wasn't affecting me, but it does seem to cause water weight gain, so I stopped drinking it. I've begun counting down the days until vacation so that I can start eating food again. I'll be gone for 3.5 weeks in Europe so when I get back I'll probably Optifast for another month or so to get down to my ideal weight.

I don't know. I just feel extremely moody and grumpy. I want pizza and tacos so bad. Even carrots with ranch dressing sound like a delicacy to me right now. I kind of want to cry just thinking about all of this.

I guess the good thing is that I am down to 198 pounds from my starting 245.8.
