Lynn Kaufman admits that she comes from "big, hearty stock." But after 30 years of being overweight, the Westside resident decided to get control. "I had gotten to a really scary number on the scale," said Kaufman, a veteran of numerous diets and 10 years with Overeaters Anonymous. At long last, Kaufman lost 42 pounds with Weight Watchers and has kept them off for two years. Of course, she needs to stay slim to keep her job as a Weight Watchers group leader.Spirited and passionate about health consciousness, Kaufman even drastically curtailed her hours as a personal injury attorney in favor of a far less lucrative career with the weight-loss company.
