Hello my name is Christina. I have decided to write up a post about my journey with LAWL as I am starting over.
I first began LA Weight Loss in 2004. I had been overweight for quite a while during my teens and when a coworker of mine told me about a program she was doing I was interested. I made an appointment that day and by the afternoon I signed up for the program at LAWL. I started at 181 pounds and within a year I lost 56 pounds meeting my goal weight of 125 and going from a size 18 to size 4-6. I admit after the weight loss I became a little vein and believe that is partially why I was unable to keep the weight off. I thought that I had lost the weight and I didnít need to do anything to maintain it so I never completed the maintenance portion of the plain.
I kept the weight off for about 2 years then began slowly gaining the weight back next thing I knew I was 200 lbs and miserable. I decided this year was going to be my year and am determined to get back on track. I want to be healthy and fit when I graduate at the end of the year as well as when I get married next year. I have already lost 11 pounds since the new year which I am happy about. My job is also doing a Biggest Loser contest and that has also got me motivated not to mention all the cute clothes i still have in my closet.
I only had the gold and green plans as well as the express after they changed to la free to live. I feel I had more success with the colored plans and they are what I used to get to my goal. I did not have the purple plan which is what plan I should start with first because of my current weight. I googled and searched the web for info and this is where I found 3FC. I was super excited to find this site because there are people who are still doing LAWL and everyone seems to support each other on here.
After reading on this site and others I found the purple plan as well as the take off plan done with oranges which is what did when I first started. I did debate on doing LA to your door but decided against it because I already paid money for my plan and did not want to pay more money if I feel I can do it with the materials I already have. I will be substituting lites with luna bars.
Wish me luck everyone I started take off this morning and so far so good.
