LA Weight Loss - Any Major Changes to LAWL in the last 2 years?

02-17-2006, 03:53 AM
Hello everyone.

I am curious to know if there have been many major changes to the LAWL plan in the last two years. I was on the plan and about 10 pounds from my goal when I fould out I was pregnant with my 1st child. The center said I could no longer participate while I was pregnant (that was March of 2004) Now I am interested in getting back into it, but am not sure if much has changed. I have tried to locate my food sheet, but haven't had any luck finding it.

Has anyone else been in this situation? Is so, what was your experience? Do I have to pay to start back up again? Any ideas or suggestions? I had thought of just doing it on my own (if I find my food sheet that is ;) I really need to start back though, as I have gained all the weight I lost, plus 15 lbs. (how depressing is that?? )

Alrighty, any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!

I'm new to the plan myself, but this happens to be one of the questions I asked my counseler when I started since. She said that if I get pregnant, or any other event like that just to let her know and she would put me on "hold" and when I was ready to come back just to let her know and we would pick up again where we left off. I would think that the same should have happened for you. I would call the 800 number and ask.
Good luck!

Not sure, but it seems like your center should do something for you here. I would definitely call and ask.

Thanks so much for replying Heather and Repo girl!

I did call the center. And the supervisor there said that since I had six weeks still remaining on my previous plan (before having to put it on hold when I got pregnant) that it would depend on how much I needed to lose now (pretty much starting over for me...ugggh) and she would subtract the six weeks from how many weeks I need and multiply that times $9.00 per week which is how much the weeks cost at the moment.

So if that was confusing (which I feel it might me) this is the deal. I can go back to LAWL and I have to sign a new contract and pretty much buy another package because 6 weeks is not enough to get me thru to my goal. At the same time I don't lose the 6 weeks I have left, I can use them up before I start using the weeks on my new contract. (Was that a bit clearer? I hope so! The first paragraph confused me!) :)

Thanks again!

YOU set your goal. Go in and say you just want to lose 12 lbs (that is 6 weeks with the guarantee, right)? Take the info they give you after that and try going it alone since you are already somewhat familiar with the plan. At least you'll get a food guide...

Thanks Mary! That is a great to know. I had not thought of that. I will do I was not really looking forward to going back to the center (I kinda got into it with them once before for not buying my bars from them) I bought them from ebay to save a little money. As I had already paid them SO much, I just couldn't afford anymore... anyway they had said my contract was voided because I did that. So I had to bring in my contract to prove it was not stated WHERE I had to buy my bars, just that I had to consume the LA Lites...and they backed off.

Thanks again Mary, that will really help me out a ton. I will let you know how that works out, as I plan on going in sometime this week. God bless you! :)
