LA Weight Loss - Hi! New here!

View Full Version : Hi! New here!

02-12-2006, 09:04 PM
I'm new to the board and just want to say hi! I have been with LAWL since 5/05 and I've lost 73lbs. I still have lots more to go but I'm so glad I found other people to chat with!

I'm currently STUCK - I've been weighing in the same for about 3 weeks, not having more than .2 losses. They took away one of my lites and are having me drink the hot cocoa in place of one lite, for one week. I'm anxious to see if this helps. I'm getting frustrated but I'm trying to be oh so patient.

Thanks for listening! :)

Dear ChrissyBee,
I wanted to say congradulations on you wonderful success! I am very happy for you! I wish I had your success! I just wanted to say that I am new here also, and I am looking for some buddies. I must let you know that I am 16 years old, going on 17 next month. (I've found that most people don't want to be friends with a 16 year old.) If your looking for a buddy and my age is no problem please contact me. If you wish, my e-mail adderss is . I look foward to hearing from you!

Hello! 73 pounds is absolutely incredible-- you should be so proud of yourself! It's too bad that the past 3 weeks haven't been going as well for you, but I'm sure you'll be able to come up with a way to jump-start the loss again.

You are so awesome, I wish I had had the tools to eat this way at 16--mabey then I would not have to be doing this when I have to because of my health. :hug:

Welcome Chrissie and Krissie!!

Chrissy- Look back a few pages on the Feb Losers and Friends thread, and check out what Gamababa3 has to say. She recapped an episode of Oprah with her trainer Bob Greene. He talks a lot about stalls and why they happen. It may help you feel better.

See you both on the threads!!!

Krissie, I have no idea what you weigh, but when I was a teen I was 145 and in a size 9..thought I was still fat (had weighed up to 180, but I'm JUST NOW getting back to 180 and feeling great about it). Anyway, as an adult I realize if I had just been serious about my health at your age I would be thin, because 145 is only fat to a playboy bunny, ya know? Anyway, good for you getting things under control while you have that rabbit-paced teenage metabolism.
