LA Weight Loss - I'm back

View Full Version : I'm back

Hi everyone,

I have had a very hectic few months and fell off the LAWL wagon big time.

All of my staff at work was gone so I was manning the entire center alone for all of April, then spent a big part of may training the new people. I lost the first house I put an offer on (including my earnest money) at the eleventh hour, went crazy trying to find another house because I was due to be out of my home I was renting, lucked up on a great home, but I almost lost that one with a contract that had to be extended twice (terrible mortgage company) that meant that I have been living out of boxes at my old house and the new one for about 2 months total and it makes it really easy to live off of take-out and pizza.

I am still working about 50 hours a week (hope to calm down after the fiscal year ends on the 30th), taking two summer classes, trying to unpack and we have a stray dog that we have adopted and she is a handful. I have tried to get back on track with the plan a couple of times, but now that I have finally unpacked my kitchen I have no excuses left, so I am back and doing TO today and tomorrow. Scared to WI, but I am sure I am in the 160ís somewhere (I will WI after Iím done with TO)

Hope to get time to read through the threads and learn about all of the newbies since I left, but I wanted to start everything fresh including getting back on here so that I can get the support I miss.

Glad to back and glad that all of my crisis phase is over.

Katie, Heather, heather, Carmen, Barb, Beanie, Lori and everyone elseÖ I missed you guys.

You've had many of us worried, but it's great to have you here again! I'm sure you'll be back on track in no time.

Hi and wow what a handful you had to go through! I'm one of the newbies you spoke of, I just started two days ago but I'm already an addict to these boards. My name is Sommer. I personally hate that transition when you move in and you're not really comfortable being in it yet. Good luck with the new place!

Wow! I have been away since November and it is so cool to see so many of you still on here AND how much you have all lost! You guys are awesome!
I fell off LAWL, and have started back up over the last few weeks. Currently doing Take Off using the Knudsens (tastes sooooo much better!).
I am determined to make it! Thanks for still being here! It is such an inspiration! Enjoy the evening!
