Hello everyone, this is my first post, so here I go:
My name is Nancy and I'm 37 year old from Indiana State. I started on the program on 8/29/06 and I'm on the Purple Plan. My S/C/G is 193/186/140. It's taking forever. The scale at home does not agree with the one in COD. And it's so hard for me to track my progress, if any at all. I only lost 7 lbs so far. I've been reading here for a while now, and finally decided to register in, so I can be part of such a wonderful group of people. You gals, are giving so much support to each other that is such a blessing at times. Thank you- Nancy

Hi my name is Ulanda, I am a 36 y/o WOC and I went back to LAWL on Monday 9/18 because they had an open house at my COD. I am determined to get this weight off once and for all because the big 4-0 is quickly approaching. I have so many cute clothes from when I lost the 32lbs 4 1/2 years ago(unfortunately, I gained it all back). I would like to lose at least 15lbs by birthday, but I will settle for 10lbs. I am currently doing Turbo Jam for my exercise which I would highly recommend, if you like fun cardio.

I don't have a lot of confidence in the workers at my center, but I have learned a lot about myself over the last 2 years. I think I know what to do and what not to do. This time, I have decided that if it's going to be it is up to me. My biggest problem is them always trying to sell me something different.

I hope to be able to offer just as much support as I am looking to get.

Happy losing!!

Hello Everyone,
I am Jessica, from Michigan. I am going to give the LA plan a shot. My friend is also doing it and it sounds healthy so I thought I would try it. I am married with 2 children ages 13 and 4. I am a caregiver for the elderely and going to school to become a nurse. I have been struggling with my weight since the birth of my son 4 years ago. I only got serious about it this past January. I was tired of getting tired so quickly and feeling slumpy. So I actually started attending the gym we paid for every single month and stocked up on healthy foods. I did great for 5 months and then fell off the wagon. I had lost 30 pounds and put back 10 over the summer. So..in a nutshell that is me! I look forward to getting to know you all.

~Jessica~

Hi All
Seems like there are many of us close to same start weight, age etc. I am Kristen, 36 and married with two girls that are 3 years of age and 20 months. Two pregnancies and the stresses of the terrible two/threes, potty training etc led me to losing a bunch of weight but putting some of it back on this summer. I met a lady in a class that had lost 70lbs and went to check out LAWL. The center I went to scared me as the staff knew nothing and were so obviously reading a sales pitch. I tried the center she went to and found much better staff. I had done a lot of research and heard all about the sales tatics but realized I can say NO anytime and I actually don't mind the bars.
I picked a goal weight but most important for me is to lose the 'mommy' body, feel fabulous in a pair of jeans with a Tshirt tucked in (!) and set a good example for my girls.
I am thrilled to have found this site as I have done WW in the past so am used to tracking but have to learn this whole system and look forward to the help.
Pleased to meet all of you!!!!

Welcome KrispieD!! These is an awesome place to be! I also saw a co-worker that lost a BUNCH on LAWL, that motivated me to join. Like I tell people: I'm the "fatest" Chinese that I know, and I'm tired of it. My goal is simple too: looking good in a pair of jeans and a simple white t-shirt tucked in. Great job on losing 7 pounds already!! It took me 2-3 weeks to lose that much. Will see ya around!

Welcome KrispieD & Samantha! We are always happy to get new "Faces"! I am sure you will find lots of help and support hare as I have. There is not a better group of gals anywhere!

There is a newbie forum thread you might want to check out and the rest of us "chat" on the Losers and Friends thread! It can be pretty quiet at times on the weekends but always rockin' during the week.

Hello Everyone.. Today I started my journey with LAWL. I am excited as well as anxious. So here is a little background info.. I am 26 with one little one. I am a military wife, as well. I have been overweight as long as I can remember. I have tried so many "fad" diets with the typical "yo-yo" effect.. Each new year I always promise myself that this will be the year and I will lose the weight for good. However with each passing year I gain more and more. So the final straw for me has been not losing much of my preggo weight and even gaining back some that I did lose. I am so tired of not being able to wear my clothing or not feeling good. I am ready to be the new me!!

I look forward to talking with you losers, sharing our journeys as we win some and lose some..

Default Hi, I'm Wilma .

I just signed up for LA WeightLoss just a few minutes ago, and because I'm a vegetarian, I didn't get started on the TakeOff quite yet. She says I can do that later. She did, however, give me the vitamin package, and she says on Thursday I can get my meal plans and food diary and all that stuff.

Oh, and... I'm 23, probably one of the youngin's. No children, not married yet. I'm in my special ed teacher's credential program at Cal State Monterey Bay. I used to be very into martial arts and fitness. I was vegan for 6 years, but I'm just a regular ovo-lacto now. And... I work for Easter Seals as a Respite Care Provider -- which is basically babysitting for children with disabilities.

That's all. And I hope to have as much success as you all have had. I'm at my highest weight ever right now... 234.8 according to the scale at the center.
