mamabanana, Katie and Stephanie,
When I first started LAWL I was going to COD 3x per week and I used their lites and I even purchased $400 worth of supplements thinking that if I was going to do this I would really "buy into it" and do the program. Then after a few months I started coming in to the COD twice a week, then once a week and I started fudging on the diet. So I did buy 10 more weightloss weeks last year after I was 10 pounds short of reaching my goal. I just figured that I didn't hold my end of the bargain by not coming in 3x per week and I started to stray.
I quit going in February out of frustration of being on maintenance but still needing to lose more weight but I did go back last week only because I still had 26 boxes of lites left. Looking back I should've remained strict for those original 25 weight loss weeks...I know, duh!
or maybe when I started stabilization and maintenance I should've went in to COD more often and maybe I would have slowly lost those last 10 pounds. I just get discouraged when I have to weigh in front of them and I'm still stuck in the 150s.
Oh well, this time 2 years ago I weighed 215 pounds and huffed and puffed just going up my stairs at home and now I am running and feeling great about it! So maybe I shouldn't be so stuck on a number on the scale.
Thanks for listening!
