Thanks! I don't know if I have a lot of wisdom to offer, but I'll try! I think part of what helped me was that instead of looking at the circles on my plan as restrictions, I looked at them as permission to eat all day long, as long as I ate the right foods. I cringe whenever I hear about counselors telling people not to split portions, because I split portions all the time--it gives me more room for "grazing". Fortunately, the counselors at my center don't have a problem with it--in fact, at least one of them said they were going to suggest it to other clients. I'm not sure I could have done it as easily without the Lites (or Luna Bars) because I do have a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate, so I figured a diet that required me to eat two chocolate bars a day was just what I needed!

Okay clever chicks! I need help. My RE company is holding a selling contest from now thru the end of the year. The entire company has been divided up into three teams, and each team needs to have a name. My team doesn't have a name yet!!! The contest is being called "Sell-abration" and so far Team 1 is calling themselves "Team Won" (har har) and team 2 are "The Sellabrators". So I need something better than either of those!! Suggestions?!?!?

Hi Everyone,
My DSL line got out of whack, and I haven't been able to get on the boards for a while. I can tell you I definitely do better when I'm reading from you guys to get inspiration. We had friends from college come for the weekend. They have 4 children. We have 3. The kids had a great time all spending the night together. We went to see the touring version on THe Lion King musical. It was awesome!!! I was not OP and I'm sure the scales will show it.
I'm going to make a reasonable goal of 10 lbs. by Halloween.
Have a great OP day everyone.

This is so great to be here...the more I read, the more motivated I become! My goal for October is 10 pounds (seems to be the standard number). I just need 8 pounds to get into the 150's...yeah!

DD and I sat on her bed last night and laughed about our first day on LA Express. I told her about a clip I saw on Oprah once where a woman had gastric bypass the week before Thanksgiving. Her stomach was the size of a grape and she was sitting in her room in front of the video camera crying while her family was downstairs enjoying their Thanksgiving meal. She wailed into the camera, "I'm in mourning! I'm in mourning for food!" My DD and I rolled on the bed laughing because it was how pitiful we felt! It's like a day without bread isn't worth getting up for!

However, we are on day 2 and looking sooo forward to our program explanation tonight.

As for the sales pitch, I wouldn't have joined LA Weight Loss if the counselor had been wierd about that. I had gone in for the free consultation about a year ago and was seriously considering it. I told the sales girl that I needed to think about it and discuss it with my husband. I was still unclear about the program because she just went through the flip chart and the price sheet with me and I wasn't sure I wanted to plunk down money for something I didn't know anything about. Still, it was when she said, "I hope your husband thinks you're worth it." that made me decide not to. Oh honey, please! Who did she think she was talking to?

This counselor was very informative, showed me one of the program books and explained in greater detail what all was involved. It was her openness about the plan and her saying that the LA Lites weren't necessary for success that made me rethink the whole thing. I'm hoping that attitude sticks around!

Andi -- I got a similar comment when I joined last year - such as how much would my family support me -- I wonder if they've changed their tactics in the past year??

Carmen the Commissionaires - sounds like a 60's pop group?

Beth, sounds like we are trying to make sure we don't show up on What Not To Wear -- getting rid of those old clothes that do NOTHING for us.

Andi,
I'm so excited for you and your DD. Best of luck to both of you. I'll bet you'll both be very pleasantly surprised at how much your weight has dropped over these 2 days. I can't wait to find out!

Hello ladies,

Andi- that's awesome that you have such a supportive center. I'm still afraid to go in and lay down all the cash. I may need to extra support though, we'll see.

I hope everyone is having a great day. I'm on day 2 of TO with the knudsen's juice. It is going pretty good, and I seem to lose around 3 pds when I do it, so that's a good way to get back into the program. I hope I can stay OP and not stray. I don't think I've gotten through one week where I haven't cheated. My goal for this week (Tues-Sun) is to not go off the program at all. We'll see!!

Shennie - any bar that you pick that is between 170-220 cals, and has at least 8 grms of protein should be okay - look at the zone bars, the pria bars, etc. . .

HI All,
Andi- Welcome! The first time I went into LAWL, I had the same experience with a counselor. Too much pressure, not enough info. I probably would not have come back except that my mom did, and talked me into it. I am so glad that she did! I also have mourned food. Sometimes I still do, you know, when I see Pizza Hut commercials! Ha ha ha!

Mary- Maybe it is this time of year. My DH turns into a bear right about now, and sometimes is difficult clear through the holidays.

I sold a puppy today! Down to 2 big babies. Had more trouble with my tooth over the weekend. Stayed off of solids, but went back OP today. It is weird that for that whole week that I hardly ate, I did not lose any weight. Just goes to show that LAWL does know what they are doing. I got the insane notion that sewing Halloween costumes would be less money that buying, and set out to make princess dresses for my two little girls. $40.00 and 8 eight hours of sewing has proved me wrong. The dresses however, are so beautiful. I did not know I was such a great seamstress LOL. I think I may actually make some kind of a Rennisance style dress for myself. I have not made my own clothes since college.
I'm going to WI tonight, but not holding my breathe. It is, after all TOM.
Glad everybody had a great weekend! Katie

Hi All,

Mary- Wow, that must have been terrible. My pain is probably minimal to what you are feeling. My friends mom had her jaw wired shut to see if she could quit eating and lose weight, but she got too good at slipping hard candy and milkshake straws in there. She, obviously, did not lose weight. Also, it was very difficult for her to yell at her kids this way!

Went to COD last night, lost one lb since Friday. I have been thinking about my Halloween goal. I guess that what I really want is to break out of the 200's. This will feel like a real milestone for me. I have even picked out a new comforter set for my bed when I get there. It is burgandy satiney stuff, with sateen sheets. Its costs twice what I would usually spend, but I'm worth it, right? It's TOM for me, and my poor little kids are really dodging me right now. DH should, but hasn't caught on yet LOL. So I think that I want to work hard, get back on track, and lose 10 lbs. That would put me at 195, setting me up for the 180's by Thanksgiving, and then, knock on wood, 170's by Christmas? I can't even imagine how it will feel be at that weight. I think that I am going to drag my Gazelle back into the house to work out on. I lost a lot of weight last year on that thing, and my well intended morning walks have yet to happen. Excuse: Walking partner puppy, Vegas needs last shots. Truth: He had them last week. Next excuse: Don't want Vegas to walk through germs to bring home to make the puppies sick. Truth: Vegas is not allowed near the puppies because he plays too rough with them. See, you really can't lie to yourself. Ha Ha Ha.
Hope every one has a great POP day!
Katie
