Hey all! I am really excited to find this board. I am 2 weeks on plan and have lost 12lb's! I did lawl back in college eons ago (okay only 5 years ago) and then fell off and didn't hop right back up.
I'm 25 years old and getting closer to my 26th birthday. GuLP and I really want to get a handle on my weight before it starts to really affect my health. My husband is super supportive, but he doesn't eat on plan with me really, but we are getting better at fixing things that I can have. And even though I still am making my daily stop at Starbucks, they are now use to filling up my water bottle for me instead of making my caramel macciato. heehee (they have good filtered water unlike my office)
I would appreciate any support from those of you willing to throw it my way. AND any advice on how to stick with a budget while doing this.
LOVE the board and am really happy to be here!

Hi All! My name is Jodi I have posted a few times but I thought I would introduce myself. I am married 13 years with 2 kids a daughter 8 and a son 2.
I began LAWL in 2004 and lost 35 lbs before moving to a new city and becoming pregnant. Now my son is 2 and I have had a horrible time keeping on track. But now with the support of this website I know I can do it. I have restarted the program. I am going to the center although I don't get much support there, every week I go in there is a new COD. Anyway I updated my weight because I haven't weighed for a while. I will weigh again on Friday so we will see how my first restart week went!

Hello!

I'm restarting my L.A Plan again. Did it in the past at the L.A center and had good results when I did stick to it. I've been off plan for a very long while now and looking forward to getting back on track again. A few changes this time around though...No lites and I REFUSE to go the center itself. I haven't had very good experiences there and I would rather do this on my own here, and with your support. Good luck to all that are on program. May we get our "happy numbers" in the end =)

Default New to LAWL, so glad I found this site!

Hi All!

I'm new to LAWL (Joined 2 wks ago and down 7 lbs). I tried WW a couple of years ago and lost, but I still figured out how to eat JUNK and stay within my points That helped with weight loss, but not healthy eating.

After some thinking, I've figured out why I gained my weight. They are 8, 10, and 11 yrs. old, and I love all 3 of them dearly. I had all 3 of my children within a short amount of time (39 mos. to be exact ). I kept 10 lbs. on with each of them and gained another 10 because I got LAZY about being active. I'm currently at 174 and would like to get down to 140. I just turned 34, and I decided I was ready to be the "old me" (the healthy, confident version...).

I know the only way I'll get to my goal is to find a healthy eating plan that I can live with, STICK with the plan, and EXERCISE. The exercise is the hardest part for me because I could SOOO be a gym rat! I was in college, (back when I wore a size 3 ), but my nearest gym (and my LAWL center) happen to be 50 miles away!

I'm hoping I can depend of some of you to keep me motivated and moving! I've been "hovering around" for the last couple of weeks, so I feel like I know some of you already. I tend to be incredibly shy, so it took me awhile to actually post! I guess this is the first step!

Looking forward to losing more!!

Hi Everyone!
I am married with no children and have been fat my whole life. In March of 08 i decided it's time to do something about my weight because I was so unhappy with myself and disgusted everytime I saw a picture of myself. I went to the center on March 16 and joined. I was very strict and stayed POP and have lost 29lbs on the plan. Then summer hit and my life got very busy and I strayed somewhat. I have maintained but am disgusted because if I had stayed on plan my weight loss could have been 45lbs instead of 29! I decided this past Monday to get back on plan and the scale is not budging!
I am upset that my center is closing! I need accountability and am depending on all your support and advice to get me through this! My friends don't understsand why I want to lose weight...they tell me I am just fine the way I am. I am a very outgoing person and usually the life of the party but with this weight loss I have to limit alchohol and they say I am not the same person since starting this program. So I am here to get support from all of you! Anyone have any advice on breaking this plateau??? I exercise 50 to 60 minutes 5 days a week!

Hi everyone! My name is Katie (some call me iggy) I am currently weighing in at 215 from 223. I have been on LAWL for 9 days, and I am LOVING IT. I have 4 kids ages 7 and under. I have never been this heavy, I was always around 198. I need to lose this weight now more than ever because I need a hysterectomy, and with that my doctor is going to do a tummy tuck for me. I have a very supportive husband who I have married to for 9 years! Anyways I look forward to getting to know all of you and being a regular member of this forum!

Hey there! I am doing LAWL but i'm telling my counsellor that i'm on bars from ebay- i'm actually using Luna's. Much cheaper, but not perfect.

Lots of good veggies are in season right now too. Good luck.

Hi Everyone,

I am new to LAWL too, I joined it on Aug 11,2008 after trying to lose weight on my own many-many times and never really succeeding. I am really liking this plan because I am eating more fruits/vegetables than I ever ate and also I am not starving myself. So, although I am not loosing like a lot of people here who lost 6-8 lbs in their take off or first week, I am still loosing weight, so I am very glad that I made the investment in LAWL program. I go to my center 3 times a week and come on this board almost everyday to see how everyone is doing and all the other important information that is shared here.

This is my 4th week and I have lost 8 lbs, so I am feeling very good about it. I think they will take my measurements this week and will change my plan from Monday, lets see what that is like! I am not using LA lites and I am on plan 4 right now.

Thanks to all of you for providing such great support here and I look forward to get to know the community

Got my "privilege" of using a ticker today so very happy about it

Ana

Hi everyone. I have to confess that I have been "spying" on you all for the past few days - lol. I have decided it's time to introduce myself. My name is Jodi and I'm a mom of 2 amazing girls ages 6.99 and 9, and been married for 10 years next month.
I have had weight issues for most of my life, yet looking back at all of my old photos, I don't look overweight at all. Part of the brainwashing from my peers, I suspect, that convinced me that I was fat.....
anyway, long story short, I finally got my head out of my butt and on November 2, 2007, I stopped smoking - YAY!!!. I have since gained 25 pounds. Since I was already 50 pounds overweight (for real this time ) that didn't help matters at all.
Anyhoo, I have been walking 2 miles/day with my Nordic walking poles - which I LOVE - and being so good about my food choices and NOTHING is happening. Can you say discouraged?? One of my bf's has been on LAWL for a few months and is having tremendous success with it. She heard that I was getting down and sent me all of her LAWL info. (I live in a small town of 350 people and the nearest LAWL center is an hour away). I am a research geek so I've been reading and reading and reading your posts on here regarding the plan and went ahead and started on the Quick Start on Wednesday and yesterday. I am VERY proud to say that I found it quite painless to stick to and am down 5 pounds and am to start my "journey" today.
I am a person who needs to be accountable and needs a good support group or I can convince myself to drop out of anything......LOL
I look forward to getting to know you all better and cheering you on in your successes!


Jodi

Hi there, I too am new to this board. I have been doing LAWL for 4 weeks now and I am down 8 pounds which they tell me is average so I feel okay about it. I have been exercising every day this week to see if it will come off a little quicker.
I am 42 and have two teenagers 13 and 16. I have been married for 18 years and my husband and kids are very supportive. I was thin all my life until I quit smoking 6 years ago. I gained about 25 pounds as well. It was terrible however I wouldn't take up smoking again now for anything.
I started LAWL at 176 and weighed in last at 168 which is very nice. I am hoping to lose another 10 in the next month. I like that I have to be accountable to someone and its nice to have a support group.
So hello everyone and goodluck to all of us!!!!!

I hear you on that one!!! I feel so much better since I have stopped - I just wish I could convince my gf who I mentioned above to stop smoking too. Good for you!!!! If we can do that, we can do anything!!
