I started LAWL 9 weeks ago. Having someone tell me what I can and cannot eat was the only way I figured I would get the weight off. I tipped the scales in Dec. when I was pregnant with my 3rd (Conner). Which was an unexpected 12 lbs. I guess I put on a few lbs more than I though I would. I have been overweight since I was 16. After my daughter Jennifer (which is 8) I managed to loose the babyfat. But I guess after my son Brayden (4yrs.) I gave up. I didnt care what my body looked like. Then this last New Years I promised myself I would loose it, and for good this time. I want to be healthy for my kids. Plus I want to suprise my husband, who is currently deployed to Iraq, when he comes home in Nov. I started excercising 3-4 times a week before I started the LAWL diet, and I think it has helped. I lost more in inches than lbs. these 9 weeks. I love the elliptical..........I am glad to have found

Hi JCook and welcome to the Boards. They are rather quiet today, but that's probably due to the holiday weekend. I don't post a lot but there is a TON of information in this forum and it's a neat little LAWL family. From what I have read so far, everyone seems happy with the program. Good luck to you; you have all sorts of motivation to keep it going - 3 kids who need a healthy mom AND a hubbie whom I'm sure will be happy to see you no matter what. Good luck and keep up the good work.

Welcome to the party Jcook! I'll just repeat what everyone else has said and say oh yeah, it's very quiet around here today. I imagine it'll stay quiet until wednesday.
