I actually like the chocolate pudding (I'm a chocoholic, so that may be why) but I think it is much better if you make it with milk instead of water (counting the milk as part of your dairy serving).

i just found this online, makes you feel really good doesn't it?


"L.A. Weight Loss Centers"
Information and Reviews

Balanced Review: L.A. Weight Loss Centers is a diet and weight loss program based on reduced caloric intake along with nutrition bars and supplements, behavior modification, and personal counseling. They focus aggressively on selling their nutrition bars called LA Lites, in addition to their supplements. By all accounts the bars and supplements are very expensive and are basically required purchases if guarantees of success are to take effect. Discounts are taken on the bars if long-term supplies are purchased, but that amounts to significant upfront costs as much as $1000+.

Most personal counselors are not independently trained social workers, but former clients of LA and are paid commissions on the LA Weight Loss products they sell, which presents a highly questionable conflict of interests. Based on received reviews for LA Weight Loss, there are considerable differences between individual centers and counselors. Some have adequately trained counselors and lower pressure sales environments, while others are the opposite. One thing is clear though from pro and con reviews: the program is expensive compared to its competition and often hard to know. They have settled out of court on a case alleging they falsely advertised the cost of their program.

The cost of LA Weight Loss seems totally unreasonable compared to alternatives. Most pro reviews elude to the cost as something that keeps them motivated, but there are better ways of maintaining your motivation without draining your wallet. We prefer more sensible, inexpensive programs such as eDiets that are conveniently on-line and accessible from your computer at home or office. If you sense you're being taken advantage of in the diet business, you probably are.

Wrigley: Congrats on the 20 pounds lost!

Deets~ glad to see it wasn’t that bad.

Carmen~ great job with the OP weekend! I had the catfish on Saturday night and it was delish. It was still kind of flimsy though so I put some Pam in a pan and browned it some. My DS was begging for more and at first he was saying “yuck, more diet food”

Julie, Emmy~ my weeks didn’t start until after my success visit.

Katie~ wow! What a night for you. Does the tea, taste like “normal” tea.

Ok, I am usually pretty good on remembering that Tom is coming and preparing for cravings (plus with BC, it’s a lot easier to remember) But it slipped my mind this time and on Saturday I was up a little and thought I hadn’t done TO in a while, I would do it to try to shake stuff up again on Sunday. I was so busy on Sunday with church and tree trimming it was no problem to do TO, but then last night I was have the biggest sugar cravings and since I have no sweets in the house. I pigged out on Lites. (how pathetic can you be to use lites as cheats) I had 1 ½ extra ones before i knew it. Then when TOM arrived this morning I realized what had happened and also realize where the gain came from…duh. So I wasn’t up today, still maintaining about .4 higher than Friday and hopefully I will be back down come Thursday.

Shennie -- Lites were one of my favorite cheats, too. In fact, now that I'm on maintenance, I use them (or luna bars) as cheats MORE often, because I'm only supposed to eat one a day, but I've gotten so used to having 2 a day that I often do anyway.

Default I'm legally back at COD and POP

Well my first trip back to COD wasn't that bad and I didn't hit the 170 mark on the scale so I was like (Okay I was close but NOT there )

My fav counselor was in a meeting and only two new counselors were available. The one I had was okay, I didn't have to explain my medical history with her becuz I told her Camile has it all charted in my file. I just needed to be weighed, given my bars, TO and will come back Wed. (Hopefully Camile will be free)

Wrigley - I agree with Juliemarie, if you make a couple 'friend' counselors it makes the trip alot more enjoyable. Once you get to know them, they seem way more interested in your progress. The one I like the best is Camile becuz she's my age, she is still on plan, she still needs to lose 20 pounds, her DH has a Harley, she has 'life happens' events, so all that makes her more human to me. Now the other one I like is Grace, she's all business, by the book and that's that. The managers are really there to get the people to sign on the dotted line and for the problem clients or atleast that's what it seems like to me

Okay so the little counselor told me that if I didn't care which TO I did that she thought since I've haven't been on plan for over a month that I should do the unlimited version. She said that people can lose up to 8 pounds on that one. Now there is no way on God's earth that will happen with me but at the same time I'll give it a try (since I'm trying to be an )

I did have a chocolate coconut almond bar on the way back to work and I must say - YUM. My other choice of bars was to get chocolate fudge brownie, BUT when I got back to work I noticed she gave me two boxes of the choc coconut almond Oh well, I just have to get the choc fudge when I go back on Wed..........(Not wanting to cause a stink becuz of )

I have half my water down, all my fruit, 1 starch, 1 1/2 protein, two veggie and one fat...........

Katie - Smooth Move tea - is that a LAWL tea? Don't get me started on how wonderful it is to be regular......

Later chicks....

Shennie- Yeah, it's not bad at all. I think that it kind of tastes like black licorice or anise. It is made by Traditional Medicinals.

Star- great job with getting back on plan. I know what you mean about making friends, i did and then they moved her. i think i am just frustrated with the fact that the girl told me the wrong thing,i was down and now i am back up again .

Icalled my old Coun. on her cell and she was happy to talk me off the ledge, so to speak. she told me that about once a month go ahead and do the unlimited TO that won't hurt you but of course no one told me that.

maybe when i get back from the cruise.

Dawn - I know, just when you make a good friend counselor at COD they go and move her somewhere else or she quits. THEN we have to be nice to yet another one, Trust me - it's happened many times to me. In the long run, it's worth the effort.

Someone (forgive me, I forgot who!) mentioned in one of the other threads that there is an internet special for week price, just $3! Its good through the end of the year so if anyone needs to buy more weeks, you can print out the page and bring it to your COD...it doesnt mention anything about having to be a new client. Hope this helps! I dont think the 4 extra weeks I bought at $5/wk will be enough to get me to 130. I am still on "their time" until I drop to my original goal of 135...once I am there, my purchased weeks kick in.
