Well Hi Ladies,
It's nice to see folks on the forum. I was somewhat active last year as I re-started the program in Jan 2012. Like many of you, I'd had success in 2005, again in 2007, again in 2008 - notice the trend
Not permanent loss, but up and down - and then my center closed.
I was up to 266 # last Jan and decided it was time to do something about it. I ordered the new program from the online business (well actually over the phone). And got the LA favorites pack at a great price (2 bottles of Take off and 8 boxes of bars once a month). The weight did come off pretty easily. And when ever we'd have busy times or travel, I just wouldn't worry about it. By about March or April, my hubby joined me. By August we'd both lost about 33 pounds. But then life got crazy. I did well maintaining for a while. But some personal difficulties and work insanity lead to the McDonald's diet
and I found myself back up in the 240s (and poor hubby had put back on most of what he'd lost in the first place).
So, it's back on track for us. Did kickoff on Mon/Tue and have been following menu 3 for Wed/Thur. Weight's working it's way down slowly. And I feel great. I'd forgotten just how yucky I feel when I eat yucky vs how great I feel when I eat better.
First goal, with maybe 5 weeks as the target, it to get back to the low point on my "ticker"
. And then onward and downward.
Good luck to everyone else.
I'm not the best about checking in daily, but I'll do my best to stop by once or twice a week.
