Default 3/28/08: new and looking for buddies!

Hi! i'm a 22 year old future teacher from l.a. i've decided to take control of my life, because i realized that i was using my weight as a safety blanket for not taking any risks!

i started lindora on 3/14/08 and have lost 15 since. My long term goal is to lose 100. i'm not really setting a time schedule for myself, as long as i don't cheat. i've started plans before and cheated and then have just given up!

anyone else starting around now? let's be buddies! we can post mini-updates here just to keep eachother going!


i hate feeling like i'm doing this alone, and i figure you guys might feel the same way.

Welcome Jayohwhy! I'm 21 college student, possible future teacher.
for those who are asking, I think Lindora is like a program that helps you lose weight. I think theyre only located in some states like here in California?? I think they measure you, weigh you, all that good stuff, and then set you up on a diet plan and follow your progress. Again, this is what I think it Lindora is from the commercials I see, but Im not positive.

hi all!

yeah, lindora one of those "medical weight loss" groups that exist here in southern california. what they do is that they start you on their diet using ketosis for weight loss [similar to atkins, but instead of no carb, it's low carb, low cal]. they have their own diet regiment and then they have these sticks that you pee on to see if you are in ketosis [i.e. burning fat].

I know how you feel. I get so impatient sometimes but I just try to remember that as long as I keep eating on plan and exercising the weight will fall off!
