Hello my LDL friends,

Today I have made a decision that I believe is going to be life changing for me. For so many years I have hid from the world. I didn't want anybody to see me because I thought I was so gross and such a failure. But I am NOT a failure, I am on a journey. Sooooooooo here goes....

First of all I added my latest pic to my avatar. Yup, that's me. Second I am adding some pics here. I am doing this for two reasons. First of all I am ready to face myself right where I am today. Second of all I want people to see that LDL really does work! :)

This was me on 2/10/13 at my 51st birthday. This was right before I decided to get back on LDL. It really was a beautiful day with my friends and family, but I was very aware that I am not happy carrying this weight.

Image

Image This was me after losing about 65 pounds on LDL the first time. I was at 292 here. It was the first time I had been under 300 pounds in years.

Image
This was me after losing 85 pounds on LDL. I was in two town then. I weighed 272 pounds in this pic. Can you see how healthy and happy I was? I'll get there again. LDL WORKS! :D

Blessed and Loved,
LP

P.S. If there are people lurking on the boards who have 100, 200 or more pounds to lose please know you are not alone. Please know that LDL WILL work for you if you follow it. I PROMISE! And above all please know that God LOVES you and wants only the best for you and LDL is it!

Little P., you are a beautiful woman, and you are God's creation, so use His strength and move toward your new goal of becoming healthy and happier. You know it can be done. I admire you in your honesty, and in encouraging others to join LDL . :ymhug: jf

Thanks JF. Probably nobody will know how hard this was for me, but I think it's important. I trust God and I know He's going to use it for good. :)


Blessed and Loved,
LP

LP I admire you so much - you are truly beautiful and you have come so far. I am so happy to be able to make this journey with you! We are on our way and we will have good days and bad days but I also know LDL works. I managed to lose 20 pounds two years ago. I did gain 10 of them back but I plan to take those off as well as more. I want to one day do the happy dance on these pages. Blessings my friend :))

Kudos to you LP for being honest and I know how you feel.
I was glad I lived so far from anyone who had never seen me after gaining 100lbs.
I hid too. I found some really embarrassingly fat picture of me just a few months before starting LDL in 2009.
I have shown them now to some new employees that I have shared this WOE with but never saw how big I used to be.
I know 6 months is a long time, that how long it took me to make a noticeable drop, but hang in there, in a few months you will be discarding clothes left and right.

One of our most successful LDL'ers Katie, lost around 100lbs in a year. Her goal was to be able to fit in and ride the roller coaster at Cedar Point! She did it!
Setting a goal like that is fun

I really like your new hair color/style, LP. It's very flattering! I know you'll be back in Two-Town again before too long. You have all of the tools and knowledge of how to do it. (Not to mention the support of some of us who love you very much!) :)
