Anybody try the Michael Thurmond 6 week body makeover?nm


I takes at least 1 week for the anesthesia to get out of your body. sm
It will take another 3-4 weeks to get your energy back and at least a full 6 months to 1 year to feel back to normal, whatever normal means?.

I has been 11 months for me now, and I am still tired more often than not.

I was up and moving around and taking long walks after the 2 week though. Back to work in 2-3 weeks. I had abdominal hysterectomy, so it may depend on whether you had abdominal or laparoscopic.

They say, lap-hys is better on the body and you are back to normal faster.

Hope this helps.

I do! I usually get mine at The Body Shop and Bath and Body Works. Thanks for posting that link. Do
That is my favorite show. I cry every week!!
exreme makeover
Yes, and having deaf people in our family this was truly a wonderful act.
RE: Extreme makeover
I cried right along with you.  Loved the mother.  She was so excited about everything.
It is her body, but now there is ANOTHER body inside of her. sm
Right now I counsel pregnant teens as I had 2 myself and regret that decision every single day of my life. I've learned over the years that God has forgiven me and that my 2 babies are waiting for me, but the guilt and shame that this decision ultimately brings isn't worth it. Besides, that baby sooo deserves a chance at life, love, and laughter. Don't you agree?

I agree with Ronald Reagan: I am Pro Choice - if the baby has a choice, then I am pro choice.
Did anyone see extreme makeover? I cried so much the last 15 minutes
Trailer Fabulous is on MTV tonight at 10 where they makeover trailers.
A glimpse into the real trailer parkers. Really they makeover real trailers for real trailer park residents.
Is there engineer week? Astronaut week? Veterinarian week?
Well Michael...

According to my sis-in-law who, with my brother ARE both florist, he's not gay either lol.. and the 6 little knee biters that call him Dad kinda confirms that.  So not all MT's or florists are gay

Michael re answers
Good to hear the change is working great for you.  My sister was an RN also until 52, got so burnt out and *retired*.  I think she is a "professional" RV'r now, traveling with her and hubby all over....in otherwords, enjoying the heck out of life.
Welcome to the board Michael

Hope we can all continue to give your a few laughs

It truly does get to be hilarious at times, just wait till one opinion posted starts a whole nuclear meltdown :)

No problem Michael
I'm used to overlooking errors that men make.
Gee Michael I am jealous she sm
didn't even reply to me! haha. That sounds really professional doesn't it? Obviously she is someone trying to work from home who doesn't have a clue and just trying to make some bucks. She can't possibly be experienced or she wouldn't put an ad in with the emphasis on computer skills and not MT skills! She is the loser!
Michael Jackson
I can't get enough of that guy.  His brothers Jermaine and Tito are very hot too and his dad, Joe, ain't bad either!
beyond Michael Moore
Perhaps you should check into the realities of the health care of those countries rather than take Michael Moore's word for it! You may find all is not what was presented in this very one-sided film. The grass is NOT always greener. I won't "flame you" as you said, but I would encourage you to do some research before jumping to conclusions.
Hello Michael and Welcome. Did you see this exchange about Franky Boy

See Below.  I copied these.  Please see the whole string.  I think it's on page three now, maybe two.  I split my side on this one.


Well, good morning "Frank" are you counting your piles of money?

penned in at the moment because of unethical practices of MQ,

but in essence you have "given" us to your competition. Your competition may have

been weakened by your siphoning off of MTs to work for MQ for a while

mostly because you became a monopoly, but with all the manpower

going to your broken competition and hospitals who are tired of being

manipulated with smoke and mirror business, see how good your name smells in

the medical field in about a year.

The resumes are flying like kites out there right now, can you see them?

Those are not clouds in your coffee those are your livelihood in the medical

field going up up up and away.

Enjoy your card game now. I think the slight of hand way of doing business

has just about seen its day.

Any company that cannot ever give how a line is counted and show

the method an MT is paid - so that the MT can double check her "billing" is

not an ethical institution. We don't work for the suprise we get in the bank at the end of 2 weeks of chasing work around your company, we work for the

money. We are business people just like you. You, MQ, would not do business without a clear contract and yet you have expected MTs to

work on a line count that is by YOUR FORMULA which you can't share! How insane is that?

Why, yes, yes I am! If you don't like my company, please move on! This company has been in business for many, many years and I intend to keep it that way. None of you little peon transcriptionists can do anything to change that. I want only positive and productive transcriptionists working for me, and sorry honey, but you do not fall into that category. If I am such a bad, bad man, then why I ask, do you take my money every 2 weeks in your paycheck? Good golly ladies, get a life and leave my company alone. I do have lots and lots of competitors out there so go see how happy you are with them, but I will tell you right now this door only swings one way so don't come crawling back a cryin' saying you had it too good here - as the saying goes, "you don't know what you got til it's gone." For some, I understand that it will take you leaving to find that out and to that end, I say good riddens, adios amiogos, farewell, and goodbye.


Frank, I will go get back to work as soon as I

No need to fix your makeup - you look good either way, although I love it most when you wear your red lipstick - YUMMY. By the way, did you get your bonus I put in your check? You have been such an outstanding and dedicated employee and one that I truly respect. Keep up the good work. I have been doing my best to keep your work pool busy by taking the other fat and ugly people's work from them.


are you enjoying writing to yourself

hmmmmm. Good observation, Michael, please explain.
 What's the deal????
Took my wrinkled poster to a framing store - Michael's
It was like a miracle! You can hardly even see where it was badly wrinkled.
Some of the craft stores like Michael's carry them in funky colors, too. nm
Typically this week is a slow week in lots of places

because it is a big vacation week.  Typically things slow dow a bit in the summer too because people are putting off elective surgery, but at the same time lots of people going on vacation so it should balance out.   



Lowest runs $900 week, highest $1400 week (sm)
Get paid 12 CPL. Been doing transcription for about 12 years.
You and me both. I want my old body
You and me both. I want my old body
I don't know why any body would
...or financial advice and listing the amounts of their debts and other very personal issues. Each time I read such posts, I am amazed and shocked that people would do this.
body art
saw it in Philly; awesome!
I work 6 days a week every other week

Due to my company's payroll (it runs Sun-Sat), I'm able to work a rotating schedule with every other weekend off. Week 1 I work Sunday through Thursday with Fri, Sat, Sun off.  Week 2 I work Monday through Friday with Saturday only off.  Then I'm back to week 1 and get that following weekend off.

I've found that I'm more productive with shorter shifts and I have kids in school anyway, so I work a lot of split shifts during the week.  If possible, you might want to consider cutting back your hours to 30 hours and just work five 6-hour days in split shifts, 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening. 

No body issue
Yep, it has been done, next state over, young girl named Carrie Culbertson, missing now for close to 6 yrs?
They successfully prosecuted her ex-boyfriend and he got life..this w/o a body!
but she is 19 and it IS her body/life....nm
all they want is a warm body?
There are still body stresses.
Physically, the stresses are still the same, the sitting, and while you do not have all the heavy keyboarding, you still have neck, arm, leg swelling, back hurting, and all the little things that just go naturally with sitting at a computer all day. Your tendinitis should improve, however!
put nm (no message) in the body
all preached out already ms, busy body MT?
executive body scan???
Could this be correct?  Outcoming being discovery of gallstones.
Even the ones with the body for it should show a little modesty.
Stop and think MTBusy-body
A professional company, well organized, will have the specs on the accounts UP FRONT, on file, before you start the account. Did you not stop to think about that? If you are going to come down on the girl, come down on the company, where the problem begins. A well organized company has the specs on file, gives the preferences of the particular client and does not waste time sending preferences piecemeal. Geesh, did you not think of that?
start with the inside of your body
and drink a lot of water. The rule of thumb is 6 oz per pound of body weight.
Exactly- my brother is an ex body builder
and certainly very masculine, but he gets a pedicure every month - his wife is all for it (you know how those hooves can get, guys! LOL), whitens his teeth, highlights his hair, and shaves his entire body (left over behavior from body building days, no doubt).
Is anyone out there that is heavy truly comfortable with their body? sm

I have had a struggle with weight my entire life. As we speak now I am on Weight Watchers.  I don't want to be model thin because I know that is never happening and some people aren't made to be that way.  I am tall, an inch from being 6'.  Before when I look at pictures I am thinking "Hey, I was not so bad.  I DID carry my weight well."  But during those times I thought I was horrible.  Now, just topped the scale to 300 and I am scared to death!  In the past year, since working from home and being depressed, I have put on an easily 50 lbs.  I weigh more than I weighed with being 9 months pregnant with my son. 

Anyway, I know for my health I need to get my weight down.  But the question is - if you are heavy, how do you feel good about yourself and your body, enough to let that stress go so you can focus on other things in life?  This consumes my every thought.  Sometimes I think I need to see a psychiatrist to get this matter resolved. 

I pray daily and ask God to help.  I feel if I can learn to have a better self image of myself that I CAN conquer this goal and lose the weight.

Tips please....I don't look at other heavy women as ugly and fat.  A lot of people I couldn't imagine being thin, yet they look great!  I just wish I could picture myself that way. 

BTW - in the almost 6 years my husband and I have been married, he has NEVER seen my naked, even when I wasn't so heavy.  It is always "give me the covers, turn out the lights" and never intimate without clothes on.  I want real intimacy.  I want to feel good about myself. How do I achieve this while in the process of losing weight?

Selling body parts in the US sm
There was a brief mention of a recent arrest (I believe it was in New York) of a phony business set-up involving funeral homes, etc., selling bone grafts, etc. from dead bodies (one was supposedly Allistair Cook's body of the PBS fame) and replacing these parts with PVC piping in some cases. These people made "millions" and the patients/families had to be notified. One man was practically crying because he had been told he has to be tested every 6 mos. for HIV, hepatitis, etc., since he had a recent surgery on his neck. They said it may not present itself for years in some cases. They showed some gentlemen being led away in handcuffs but the story was cut short. Anyone else know about this travesty and why so little else has been said about it or is there any web site, etc., that explains it in more detail? Would like to know morel I am very concerned for the recipients as well as the unbeknownst-to-them "donor" families.
Couldnt they just run a magnet up his body
No busy-body MT, just somebody who has your and dano's number.
And kill one of your screen names. You have been outed.
Don't be so quick to judge others by yourself busy-body MT!
No joke.

PS: Where do you get the TIME IN your busy schedule to prepare essays and lectures to MTs what with your "busy" MTing and getting degrees etc? How's dano? She seemed to back you up with essays also. Same hahaha. Worn out?
jokes on you busy-body MT. hahaha.
really can we get someone to look into busy MT's background before she receives one more report to transcribe regarding her unfortunate habit of psychopathic lying and associated protesting too much on MT boards? Who knows what lurks IN this deviant mind?
I also love to get nice body lotion
or bubble bath or great smelling candles are always good.
4 words; bath and body works
Head tired, body anxious
 Anybody else have symptoms where your head is tired, but your body is anxious?  At night it is the opposite, my head keeps running, but my body is tired.  I find it hard to focus on work, but if I take anything to help me concentrate, i.e., Adderrall, then I feel all my muscles tense up and my heart beat faster.  Its driving me nuts.  Anybody else have this problem and have a remedy?  Thanks!
Any body know of a family practice hiring PT..
I am currently working full time doing hospital work but things are slow all around for everybody.  I was hoping to find a small acct to supplement on a perm. basis.  Any help would be appreciated. I am new to this board so I hope it was okay to ask here.
