Hello,

I'm Suzette. I live in Southern NH. I work full time for a major telecommunications company and I am fortunate (though, at times its not so fortunate) to be able to work from home, except when I travel (about every two months on average). I am married and mother of 3 sons, ages almost 15, 13 1/2 and 10. My sons are currently Freshman in high school, a 7th grader and a 4th grader. I enjoy downhill skiing in the winter. In the summer, I enjoy swimming. I also enjoy walking and working out at the gym on the elliptical trainer. I am an amatuer creative writer, particularly enjoy writing dark, epic science fiction, though, I also like historical tales as well.

I was a normal weight kid until I was about 7 or 8 then I ballooned. I lost weight when I hit puberty but then gradually, though late high school and college, I gained, finding myself 50 pounds overweight. After college and after getting married, I went to a place called Diet Center in the late 80s where I lost the weight, got to goal and kept it off for nearly 4 years.

Then...I started having kids and in matters of weight, it went up from there. Through having kids and a few job changes as well as moves a few times all over the country, as well as two years of injuries and female health issues leading to surgeries (knee surgery one year, follow by a hysterectomy the next) which kept me immobile (no exercise) and depressed (COMFORT FOOD OVERINDULGENCE!), I was pushing 40 and found myself over 150 pounds overweight. I asked myself the question we've all asked ourselves at a "turning points"''...."how did it ever come to this?"

I turned to WW and lost about 40 pounds online but then...nothing. I found myself battling the same 10 pound for 8 months when someone from the WW message board, through her own efforts and success, convinced me to go to LAWL.

So, here I am!

In two weeks, I've lost 8 1/2 pounds. My goal is to be down to my "goal" by my 20th wedding anniversay by May of next year. I know it is very doable. I like the program because it is VERY similar to Diet Center, the program which was most successful for me. I also love the bars.

This group is awesome and very supportive. Suzette

Thanks for the welcome..

Tina, your little girl (I'm assuming) is adorable. I love that "I'm up to something but I'm charming you with innocence" little smile on her face. She reminds me of a female version of my DS#2 when he was that age. Wonderful....

Hi all!
I haven't posted very much at all...but I've been reading other posts for the past 7 weeks. I feel like I know everyone here already!
I joined LAWL on January 20th and have lost 24.2 pounds so far. My goal is to lose 80 pounds.
I work at a radio station and get the program for free in exchange for my testimonials. So...without having to worry about paying for any extras, I'm on 2 lites a day and all the supplements. I haven't felt hungry at all and I'm sure it's the lites and supplements that help with that!
I stay motivated because I feel like everyone in town knows that I'm on this diet. Which is good. I know this is going to work...for a lifetime.
Did anyone see Wynonna Judd on Larry King Live last night? She actually went into a 'rehab' center for 7 weeks to detox from her 'food addiction'. I'm sure that cost a pretty penny! I wonder if she got in for free in exchange for her statments

Default hi new here

H everyone
I have been a lurker here but have really enjoyed reading the posts so I thought I should introduce myself. I was always chunky as a child - started dieting as a late teenager and that seemed to lead to the yo-yo factor. Just over 4 years ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I lost a lot of weight initially but slowly gained it back. One of the few that gains weight on chemo. After a 3rd reoccurence last year I really thought I have to get my life back. So I joined LAWL in January. I have to say all my experiences are extremely positive. Because of medical reasons I am not eligible for any of their supplements & bars so I am never asked. I have to say thanks to you all for all the recipes they are great!
Barb

Hi Kicker, and welcome!! Looks like you are doing great. Come on over to the Losers and Friends thread and say hello, that is where most of the daily chatter takes place.

Hi Everybody! I am fairly new to LAWL. Just starting my third week today. I have searched online for support, and am glad I found this forum!

Quick Info: I am 38 yo, mother of 4 (19 boy, 15 girl, 12 boy & 11 girl). I moved from NY to PA last July, and am currently attending a technical school for Practical Nursing.

So far I have lost almost 10 pounds. Although the weight did not come on over night, I wish it would go away quicker!

I look forward to chatting and getting to know everyone!
