LA Weight Loss - Boy O Boy I 've got some explainin' to do

05-07-2006, 04:27 PM
FIRST, I'm an idiot!!! :( I want to apologize for just jumpin' in and tellin' y'all your business. Ya know the saying, 'a little bit of information can be a dangerous thing'? Well, I am a very good example. I thought about just starting over under a different name, but I was sure to screw that up too, THEN I'd have so many different names I'd gain 50lbs trying to avoid the facts!

My name is Maria, I'm from Oklahoma and I just heard about you guys. I'm in maintenance and apparently, in my mind, that makes me the KNOWER OF ALL.
I was reminded of humility this morning when I thought I was so cool pulling into church. There were people standing outside obviously waiting for my entrance, (NOT) Well GOD happened right there infront of everyone. My door got stuck (I have no idea) and I had to climb out the WINDOW! I immediately looked up and laughed. I really want to change and God apparently believes me, therefore I'm reminded.
I have stuggled w/every addiction. I would overcome one only to realize I had a new one to overcome, food was sure to be the last one, who knew know-it-all-ness was an addiction?:D
I have 5 children; 3 mine, 2(I hate using the word step)
I'm 5'8 and had blossomed from 120 up to 199. So I joined LAWL in Edmond in November. I reached my goal (160)early and was able to set 2 more before my weeks were up (140 is where I stopped). So, I really needed to behumiliated this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have really good counselors at our center (one imparticular).They aren't afraid to say they don't know and find out for me. They also didn't push the supplements (the lites, different story) anyway, I guess I assumed it was that way everywhere-WHATEVER! I hope you guys are forgiving and I can try again.

HMMM--I am curious--where did you think you overstepped? You certainly don't have to apologize for posting your thoughts and opinions--that's what this site is for.

We must be really offended by what you did...nobody can remember it :lol: I guess that means you're ok, huh?

I must still be recovering from the effects of my catholic upbringing:dizzy: You know, this happens alot. I'll feel yucky and mean on the inside, and I'll apologize, and who-ever says When? What are you talking about? I guessI don't come across as bad as I feel. ( issues with what others think, maybe?) I have to remind myself... what other people are thinking is none of my business. O gosh, anyway, Yes I'm this flippin' crazy:carrot: I'm just happy to introduce myself.
