LA Weight Loss - Just Doing It...Again.
08-13-2007, 11:48 AM
So here I am, back again.
Doing it on my own had at one point gotten me down to OneDerland and in true "me" fashion, I gave up on myself and my plan, thinking I had it licked.
So now, here I am again. I don't know how much I weigh, only that I'm back in the clothes I was wearing at my heaviest. I will face the scale tonight and add a ticker tomorrow. For now, for me, for the first time in almost a year, it's TO time.

Welcome back, Carmen!!! :wave:
It's great to have you back...I remember you from my last round on LAWL, too. My story is the same as yours...lost weight, thought I had it all under control, left these boards (which was probably my biggest mistake), and gained it all back and then some.
You did it before, you can do it again!

Tina and Katie - Thank you both SO MUCH.
I've been lurking...and just decided to dive back in on Monday come He!! or high water, and Monday it is.
I see a few old faces are back (or never left), which is great to see. Looks like a great group of folks here.
Tina - LOVE the brunette you.
Katie - You look great chick. Is that new bundle of joy yours???

No. nonono! That is my sister's new baby. He is 10 days old now, and what a sweet, awesome baby. This really is a great group. Thanks for the compliment. I feel great.

I'm on my 4th restart, and while it's coming off slower this time, I'm at least sticking with it so far.
You can do this!!!

Carmen!!! I am just trying to get motivated and back in the boards to lose my pregnancy weight and then some, but it was hard not seeing all those familiar faces...I did remember Katie, Lea Ann, Juliemarie, Tina, Dawn, Sherry, but it is great to see you too now! I am back at my lawl start weight after the pregnancy because unfortunately my babies were born weight 6 lbs each and not 30 :lol: It could have been worse, I guess!

Hmmm, 30 lb babies...yeah, could be worse!
