Well DH and I ordered "beach body" but I have not started yet. I plan on starting tomorrow.
I'm a teacher with 3 kids who need to be taken hither and yon. It is so hard for me to find time. DH has been telling me to send the program back because he doesn't think I"ll do it.
He started today and wanted me to. Well, there is one "Day of rest" and I thought mine better be Monday, since it is dance class and Brownie night with no time for a workout.
My plan is to have a slimfast shake for breakfast, two healthy snacks and a healthy lunch, work out after school, and a healthy dinner. 1200 calories, I hope.
If nothing else motivates me I took my MEASUREMENTS just now and YIKES!!!! No wonder my arms wave goodbye when I wave hello!!!:eek: I am guessing I weigh about 180 and am 5'7". I've been a little worse, but the best I have ever done on WW is getting down to about 170 and then stopping. I hope I am more motivated this time. I would like to lose 20 pounds in the 4 months I have left before our WDW vacation--or if not 20 pounds, at least look a LOT better in my sleeveless tops!!

Hi Robin! :wave: Good for you for not giving up! Wishing you great success that you can meet your goal before your trip!

My DH sounds like yours. I got several books on weight loss from the library plus a few novels. DH said the weight loss books would sit on the shelf unread until time to go back. Well I showed him and read every one. :p

You'll love the support you get here on the WISH board!

Take care!

:wave: This is my arm waving hi to yours!!!

Good for you!!!!! There is nothing wrong with starting over! :) I hope you enjoy the Beach Body tapes (program?) I've never heard of it, but the name sounds cool!!!!

You CAN do this!!!! 20 pounds in four months sounds like a great goal, but ANY loss in 4 months will put you closer to where you want to be!

I totally understand about the arms waving goodbye!!! If Beach Body includes some type of weight training, you will be the proud owner of some very sexy arms in no time!!!

Good luck! Keep checking in here! We're all behind you!!!
