I am new to LAWL (joined on the 25th March). Off to a shaky start since I got the flu right after, so actually "really" started on the 30th!
My name is Cathy and I am 52 years old (divorced), living in Salem, Oregon. My kids are grown (3 girls), although my oldest lives with me and is almost ready to graduate with her nursing degree! Other two girls live in CA - one is an architectural engineer and the other is an accountant. I am a counselor working for corrections - love my job, but I tend to be a work-aholic.
I joined LAWL because I have a lifelong history of being a yo-yo in regards to my weight. This past year has been a "regrowth" of sorts where I am learning to actually accept me as me and challenge the parts of me I don't like! Soooo...here I am. I want to be back down and actually feel good and in shape again! The rising scale was bothering me!
I guess I am looking to hearing all of your successes...and the rough spots. Get any hints (like I turned down the LA Lite bars due to $$...anyone else?). And love getting new recipes!
Glad I found this site!
