Wow - this board is amazing. I've been reading posts for a few days and I am just amazed at the support and friendliness here!
I just wanted to finally come out and say "Hi" to everyone and start getting to know ya'll. I have been doing LAWL with my Mom for about 3 weeks now and have lost 10.2 pounds. I absolutely love the plan. I never feel deprived and for the first time I don't feel like giving up on something after a few weeks. Hopefully I will stay in that frame of mind, but between the support of my awesome counselor and everyone here I know that I will be able to do it this time. I've tried everything out there it seems and I finally think I found the right combination of support and way of eating that will work for me. I enjoy going to the COD - it really helps to know that I have to remain accountable for the choices I make. I go 3 times per week - Mon; Wed; and Saturday's.
My mom seems to enjoy it as well. I am really hoping to see great results for her too, to try and get her off of some of the medication she takes for blood pressure, diabetes, etc. She has lost about 7.5 pounds so far.
I hope everyone has a great Friday! I look forward to getting to know you all!
