I'm a newbie to both LAWL and TFC too! Welcome!
I'm really liking the program I need the structure and the one on one 3x week counceling weigh-ins.
I don't have kids, but I have 4 pets! (2 dogs & 2 cats) I got married last year (first & last time) at 40 yrs old. At the time I weighed 158 and wanted to lose 18 pounds.....somehow I gained 40 pounds in about 5 months! Some people call it happiness.....but I was feeling like a brautwurst about to burst!
The "Carb Cravers" like the bagel with cream cheese and tomato or the Peanut Butter and Jelly are a treat for me. I also buy a couple of Lean Cuisine meals for when I get stuck at work.
Baby steps.....but if you can stick with it, it really seems to be working!
NOTHING tastes as good as skinny feels!
