I gather that WISH is a weight loss thing....but I can't seem to find "the whole story" so to speak.

I just started doing Atkins on 2/1/03...I'm doing great and breaking my sugar addiction. I'd love to connect with other DIS folks who are on the path to better health...

So, could someone fill me in?

WISH stands for We're Inspired to Stay Healthy. Kelsie recently started the WISH challenge which has brought a lot of us who want to lose weight together.

Lots of different eating plans are represented here and we are just one great big support group.

I'm also following the Atkins eating plan and have done pretty well. My husband has done even better.

Grab the WISH clipart and join us. It's great to see you here Lesley.

Welcome to the group Lesley!! :)

I too am new to the Atkins Plan, having begun it on Feb. 1st. Thus far I have lost 20 pounds.

So far I am incredibly happy with the results of Atkins, and I have to tell you that WISH has been a HUGE! part of my motivation.

These are some of the most supportive people I have ever been lucky enough to have come across in my life!

You have picked the right bunch to hang with! :p

I'm very impressed John! Wow! I'm down 14 as of last week's weigh in. I've still got far to go, but I know I can do it!

I was really very happy to find this group...as I know that here on the DIS people are so very helpful and supportive! I guess I need to wander off the DVC board more often.......:D

And its nice to have a common goal.....I know I'm looking forward to feeling more energetic and up to all the walking at WDW! And to feeling better about wearing a swimsuit!

Hi Lesley, welcome to WISH! I started Weight Watchers 10 days ago and joined the WISH board the same day. Like John said, this board helps to keep me motivated. I have lost 8 pounds thus far and enjoy the support and ideas I find on this forum.

Congratulations on your loss so far, that is awesome.
