Wink Hi, I'm new to the group!!

Hi my name is Katy. I just joined LAWL last Thursday. I have lost 5.4 pounds already.

I joined because I needed to get my butt and lose the weight that I have gained over the last couple years. I am 29 years old, married and I live in Escondido, CA. I would love to start a family in the next couple years, so I think that losing some weight is a good start. When I started I weighed in at 198 pounds and my goal weight is 150 pounds.

I guess I need some encouragment about the decision that I just made by starting LAWL. First of all, I didn't know that it was SOOO expensive. I have already shelled out over $1000 for the plan and LA Lites. (even though I only bought about 12 weeks worth)

I read on some other threads, that I don't have to always use the LA lites. Is it true that I can use Luna bars? If so, that my make my wallet a little easier.

Well, I just wanted to introduce myself to the group.

Thanks

Katy

come on over to the monthly board and get some great advice and help.

Hey all I am new to all of this. I decided to be like almost everyone else out there and decided to lose weight as my new years resolution. Except I am finding this very hard to do. I joined L.A. weight loss because I heard a lot of great things about them. However I was never a 3 meals a day kind of person and right now I am on the purple plan and they want me to eat 3 times a day and snack twice. I feel like I am eating all the time and it doesnt feel right. It is also difficult doing it by myself and not having the support of friends and family. My goal is to be 30 lbs lighter by the end of april. And I am hoping that with the support of everyone on here and determination I can do it. I do have one question though. How do I add the weight loss ticker so it shows up when I post things? Thanks everyone I hope to be talking to you soon!!!

30lbs~ and congrats on a great choice. have you talked to your COD about being full all the time. The only way to gt your metabolism goign is to eat 5-6 small meals. i useto eat only eat 1 or 2 meals too, but you will learn to get use to the plan. try not to have a day full of heavy foods. And don't forget your water.

what part of chiocago are you in? come join us on the monthly thread.

Hello, ladies! My name is Erin, and I live in Bartlett, TN (outside Memphis). I joined LAWL yesterday. I am a Type I diabetic, so LA Lites are not part of my plan, nor is the Take-Off phase. So, I just got started on my plan (red). I'm just learning the ropes, but so far, I AM STARVING! I guess it will take a while to get the idea as to what foods work best for me. But I'm anxious to get losing!

I'm so glad to have found the thread!
