Aloha Everyone,

I have just had my free consultation today at an LAWL center location here where I am located. And I am officially a LAWL member. I am starting tomorrow my LA Express 2 Day thingy. It sounds challenging but I know I can do it. I am glad that I have found this forum, because I believe we can help one another learn from each other's experiences. It is also to meet and make new friends. I hope to have a great experience here and I hope I can get a few answers when I come across them.

My weight goal is to lose 25 pounds in 13 weeks, thats what the LAWL consultant said is in the contract. So here I go! I have been on a lot of diets and they never worked. My major problem is portion control. My step-sister referred me to LAWL she is a success story, she lost 32 pounds in 4 months.

I had my doubts about joining because of the price, but the value is in the outcome of the results. Well this was long enough and it was nice to meet you. I was wondering if anybody had any advise you could give a newbie and if working out 4 times and week on the treadmill for about 15-20 minutes for now and situps about 200 daily is too much.

Okay it was a pleasure talking!

Mahalo Nui Loa,

:welcome: Melissa - Great to meet you too - Come on over to the Friends Feb 2006 thread and join us there!!! I think the workouts are good - not sure about how much - maybe Gymgurl can answer some of those questions since I think she is a trainer or knows alot about the working out stuff.....

Just make sure you tell your center how much youw ork out so they give you enough food. As long as you aren't working out over 2 hrs a day or something, I don't think it can be too much. You may not see the scale move as quickly, but your body will LOOK better if you do it. You will look smaller quicker.
