May 20, 2011: Medifast Check In Number 2

Medifast Status: Day 18, Down ~16 lbs

I managed to make it in to my Medifast training session during lunch today.  It’s been a week and a half since my last appointment.  The summation is that I am doing well.  My ketosis levels are much improved from last week and my weight loss is now at a healthy, sustainable level.  My progress is good and I am roughly on target.  The slight increase in my food intake in the last week appears to be what I needed to keep me from “starving” even though I feel roughly the same no matter what I am eating.

I’ve discovered that there are a number of really interesting games available for my iPhone.  Notably the first three Final Fantasy games are now available as are two games that are an offshoot of the Assassins Creed family.  Unfortunately for me, I’ve already completely the first three Final Fantasy games recently on the Nintendo DS or else these would be perfect for me.  The later games which I am looking to play are not yet available on the iOS platform.  The Assassins Creed titles definitely interest me and I have downloaded one of them to give it a try.

I’m hoping that more Square-Enix titles like later Final Fantasy games and Dragon Question games and other LucasArts games like Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max and later Monkey Island titles make it to the iOS platform.  That would really be great.

These games really show how cool the platform would be if combined for the iPhone, iPod, iPad and… AppleTV.  I’d love to be able to take these games with me but play them on my Apple TV when I am at home too.  The AppleTV would be an awesome way to play many of these classics in a more traditional setting.  I’d buy tons of classic games that way.  These older style games are perfect examples of where this technology would really play well today and pave the way for a big move into the serious game market of tomorrow.
