I am eating the coffee soft serve right now...delicious! I made mine with coffee instead of water and added way more ice than they said on the package. It tastes like coffee ice cream...like the actual thing! I'm actually almost full right now and have quite a bit left...I guess I will have to force it down.
Wow a yoga retreat! That sounds fun...
We want the dish on your time in the states AND the retreat..
I know you were a little concerned about how they would pan out..
Dish girl Dish. How was the retreat? Was it as good as it has been before for you?.
Please don't keep us hanging. I need to live vicariously through you LOL...
You look wonderful in your new picture!! Glad to see you back here again!!.
As for the new foods - the pancakes (both kinds!) are a THUMBS UP from me. I have to try to only eat them once a day because I do add the sugar free syrup and it has some carbs...
LOL!! Well, the states were ever so hard. I did REALLY try, but I did gain. Now, compared to the 15-20lbs I usually pack on during the summer months, I am SUPER happy with the 9lbs I gained this summer. I tried (most of the time) to make healthy choices, but I did indulge in some treats. late night hungers were met with a Medifast bar and water- a big change from going in mom's fridge and helping myself to all of the goodies in there!.
OH TxMaryK! The retreat!- FIRST- I AM NOT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL, AS FAR AS I KNOW MEDIFAST DOES NOT CONDONE THIS AND I AM NOT RECOMMENDING THIS TO ANYONE. THIS IS SIMPLY AN ACCOUNT OF MY EXPERIENCE. (Figured I ought to say that. LOL ).
Now, I am finishing up my 2 weeks now. I leave very early Saturday morning. This has been an absolute TREAT!!! It is so not about the weight loss here. It is a great, right, "light feeling" to rid your body of toxins and parasites! The fasting, meditation, yoga, colemas, herbal steam room, one hour massages every day, beach walks, mountain climb, the people, the knowledge gained...amazing! We even had belly dancing one night. They've added a fitness room since I was here last year and it is quite nice. I've had galvanic facials, a complete body scrub, body wrap, massage therapy...oh I could go on for days!!! I feel renewed and energized! Totally awesome experience. They can surely expect me again next year! If anyone has any questions, you can hit me in my message box...
Thank you Sandy!! It's good to be back with you guys!..
I just knew the retreat was going to be good and just what you needed. Of course Medifast won't "approve" it, but with the mind work you got to do, and the washing away of the old negative energy and allowing the renewing energy in, it had to be one of the best things you have done for yourself. I am so glad for you that you decided to go ahead and do it..
And to get to spend time with momma. Yeah!.
You learned how to make healthier choices and I bet last year you would not have been able to do the belly dance class and have as much fun as you did this year..
Enjoy your massage and think of me today as you relax in the feeling of completely and uterly taking care of your whole self, mind, body and spirit...
Wow that retreat does sound amazing. Where did you go?..
Welcome back! Great new avi pic! You look terrific..
Pancakes are awesome, especially with some WF syrup (I ate mine without syrup). I'm not a big ice cream person so haven't tried them yet...
Kisha...I wondered where you went! I missed the "i'm coming home stateside for a while" post!.
My pancakes and coffee soft serve are due Tuesday (Beth, thanks for the info on how you do your coffee soft serve!!!!!!).
Welcome back You look great in your new avi!!!!..
I just got a new order and I ordered the peanut butter soft serve and the chocolate chip pancakes. I tried the peanut butter soft serve last night and I really liked it. I don't think it tastes like peanut butter though, almost like caramel or butterscotch..
I haven't tried my pancakes, but I have s.f. syrup and also some WF chocolate syrup to try with them..
Stunning new photo! You look fantastic and soooo happy.
I have enjoyed the CC pancakes and eat with out syrup and on occassion will use some WF syrup. The PB soft serve was OK ... I have coffee soft serve coming soon - it seemed to get the most positive comments on the boards...
Hi guys!! Thank you to everyone for the compliments and the heads up on the products!! I am really happy to be back on the boards and posting with you guys! These boards help me focus and actually stick to this. I could not have made it this far without ya!! Thank you!!!.
I am at a fasting/meditation/yoga healing retreat in Phuket, Thailand. I don't want "hate mail" about posting info on a fasting retreat , so if you send me a message, I will gladly reply with the web address just so you can see what I'm talking about. I am completing a 10-day complete fast and then will have one day of raw foods. Again, not recommending anyone do this, just relaying my experience.
I think I will wait until the 20th to weigh (I'm a Friday weigher) in order to give my body time to readjust to Medifast and real food (my lean & green) again..
But, I have placed an order for the NEW STUFF!!! Can't wait to try it! I LOVE pancakes AND ice cream! WOOO!!! I am excited!..
So far I have found the regular pancakes are best when made into a microwaved biscuit with a Medifast sausage patty in between. The chocolate chip ones are better as pancakes or muffins. And so far the coffee softserve RULES... the choco mint chip just tastes like mint extract to me :/..
Waving HI to Kisha, so glad to hear from you, I was just looking at your page the other day wondering why we hadn't seen you about, then I remembered about you being in the States. Girl I'm so glad to see you back on the boards and looking GRRREAT, I was worried that the summer had derailed you..
Don't worry about those few pounds, heck I managed to put on 9 pounds in a couple of weeks over Christmas , the important thing is getting back on track when you get home, and just start rocking the program as you have right from the start..
I'm not sure if I could do the whole fasting and colonic thing, but having just started yoga, second session was last night, I can imagine what a spiritual and mental cleansing a retreat like that would bring, sounds wonderful, and an hour long massage every day, that sounds like sheer heaven..
Whatever the scales say on your first weigh in doesn't really matter, that is just the firm stake in the ground, and your starting point for stage two of this great journey..
HUGS, and a big smile...
Hi right back at you!! Thank you for the words of encouragement! I needed that. This retreat has been wonderful and I can feel a little anxiety as I prepare to leave to go back to Seoul, but I know I have to do this. Medifast has been a life changer for me and I am not even half way through my journey. I want to be healthy, so I have to jump back on this Medifast horse and ride it right out of fat town!!.
You look AMAZING!!! What motivation for me to see your pic on your posts!! Congrats on such a great success!..
