AMEN!! I've been on the same rollercoaster. I've been thin, but it seems like my entire adult life has been battling weight and I'm tired of it! I want to wear cute sun dresses. I want to feel free at the beach, even in a skirted suit! I want to wear tube tops and not feel like my arms and chest are overflowing out of it. I want to wear my favorite pair of jeans with a tight tank top instead of flowing ones to hide my muffin top because I gained weight again. I want to feel sexy for my husband, and be a mom that my children can be proud of. So AMEN Lori! You go girl! I've started the same thing a couple of months ago - not a fad lose weight fast diet, but better eating habits, exercise regiment and a lifestyle change. So I commend you for putting it out there and I'll be here celebrating with you as you succeed!


LORI!!! I am soooo proud of you for "putting it out there." You are so beautiful, and you deserve to feel good. If you ever want a workout partner, let me know! Our "no name shop" above the garage is full of workout equipment. I'm on Day 3 of Twizzler detox, and I'm losing my mind. But, I'm determined to change my eating habits so I can have more energy and feel better about myself. You go, girl!!


LORI!!! LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!!! I am FOR REAL! I just went to the doctor today and was told I am diabetic. WHAT?!?! I was told I need to eat better and exercise - both of which I am known for NOT doing.....but I want to be around to watch my sweet Lucy walk down the aisle at graduations AND when she gets married - so I have to start taking care of myself. Let me know if you're game for having a seat mate on your roller coaster ride - I wanna be fisrt in line!

Lori - wow - you really touched me. I get it too - truly and really - and am still trying to get on that path consistently. You have an ear here.

Miss Paula

Is there a way I can email you!! I have a way I am working in this and it doesn't require any detox etc!! MY MIL, and 2 friends from church are doing this and you can be a part too!


You know, I am on a similiar journey. I am seeing the effects of the extra weight, and this has got to stop. I have been good for about a month and am wavering right now. I have talked to you about walking in the late afternoons, but have you noticed that I have not yet picked up the phone? It's very very hard to get started for me. Anyway, I am proud of you for making your battle public, and will gladly listen anytime and/or walk or bike with you, or share strategies or whatever.


Lori, I wanted to share my story with you -- I, too, have roller coastered -- Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Atkins, cabbage soup -- you name it, I've tried it. I had pretty much given up. Last summer I had what I call "divine intervention". Out of the blue, I had the thought, "I'm going to lose 100 pounds." I started praying about it, and I have never had so much will power in my life. I am half way to losing 100 pounds. Keep praying!

Your Mark

I like roller coasters too but I love you most my sweetest and bravest Lori. I am blessed to share in your life. We will complete the puzzle together...we will win together!


i am so proud of you...i always have been. i love you no matter what and am so blessed to have you for my sister. xoxo

I am on the same journey...trying to make better choices and I am not calling it diet anymore. I havent lost much at this point but I don't want to. I hate gaining it back. I will be following you on your journey. I am proud of you!
