I am happy to have found your topic! I successfully participated in LAWL in 2003-2004. At the time I went from 170 to 150, and settled in at 155. Now I only wish I could be back there. Of course it has been 10 years now, my weight has fluctuated primarily due to stress (marriage, divorce, vacation in iraq) and sharing food duties at times which took away my food control. I think I look good at this weight, even a little more, but I FEEL my best at or below 160. That also puts me just at a 25 BMI, which I think is best for my overall health.
So I am digging out my books and hoping I can get back on track. I don't remember it being difficult for me, although I did become a little obsessed, which I don't think is too healthy. Hoping for a balanced route this time around.
Today I am starting my greens and protein, halfway through the day, hating it!! I was a blue plan person before, and I am missing my carbs!!
Hope to share updates with you all.
