Oh no! We were hacked!

We were hacked. While we are not sure who is responsible, we were hacked last week.  I suspect it is some Nigerian Prince, but my IT guys tell me it is likely someone from Russia. Anyhow, we gave them the boot; but there were some lingering issues. On the technology side, they have been handled, and I decided to take the opportunity to give the site a refresh.  But, all of the old content is still here and functional! So for now, it is boring and bland. In the coming…

My Medifast Update #1–Down 15

I’ll keep this short and sweet. After a month, of eating flavored cardboard described as “nutritional food” I am seeing a lot of progress. Actually the food is not all that bad. There is some that is horrible (to me) and much of it is very tolerable to the point where I do not think of it as a chore to eat.
