Default Introducing myself

I have been reading the posts on this board for about a month now, so I thought I would introduce myself. I don't have any questions, I think everything has been answered in what I have read!

My name is Jennifer, I have been on LA since May 28th. I am 26 and have a 5 year old daughter and 16 month old son. My weight problems began with my first pregnancy and then got really out of control.

I tried WW, but it is not the program for me. After I had my son, I was wearing a size 24 pants (that was with the swollen belly, however.) I started getting serious about weight loss at the end of March. I gained 33 lbs with my 2nd pregnancy, and have lost all of that plus over 20 more.

I began dieting on my own in March, and was losing about 1/2 a lb a week. Since I have joined LA, my total weight loss (including what I lost in the 2 months before) is 29 lbs- 18 of that is from LA. I am now wearing a size 18 in plus sizes, and can fit into 16 plus, but not comfortably yet.

LA has been so great for me, my skeptical husband is talking about joining. We have a trip to Mexico coming up in October, so that is huge motivation for me.

I was on Blue plan with Lites, and am now on meal plan 3 with lites- I was switched Wednesday.

I am looking for weight loss buddies, to exchange emails with, those in a similar situation as me. I work crazy shifts, and my husband is a police officer and works a ton of overtime, so I am at home with my kids a lot.

I have the hardest time with emotional eating, and I have been having a lot of (female related) health problems, and when I am in pain I tend to go off track (I went off track a few weeks ago and gained 2 1/2 lbs in 2 1/2 weks

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Jennifer

Hey Jennifer,

I'm in Lenoir City & go to the West Knox LA center. Which one are you going to? I've been on the plan since February & am down 36lbs. so far. My mom & aunt are doing it as well & are doing great.

The one thing I've learned on this plan is you definitely need support because it is hard to do it by yourself. Welcome to the site!

Kathryn

Kathryn- I go to the South Knox center. I live North, but I joined at the South one because a manager there is married to one of my co-workers. I can go to any center, but I am just so comfortable with those ladies!

Kim -
Wow it's amazing to find someone who has heard of L.C., much less lives there. What part of East TN do you live in?

Kathryn
