Welcome to WISH

WISH = We're Inspired to Stay Healthy!

There are just about as many different programs as there are WISHers! BUT -- we all have the same end goal -- to lose weight and become healthier inside and out! Becoming healthy on the outside takes becoming a better person on the inside -- and THAT is what WISH has done for ME!

It's great to have you join us!

You will find instructions for the WISH clipart HERE. (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=326403)

Be sure to tell us about yourself [and post a picture too] on the WISH Family Album - which you will find HERE. (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=335034)

<b>SnowAngel</b> It's so great to see you here. I'll bet that you will do very well with Atkins, a lot of WISHers have had excellent success controlling their carbohydrate intake, including me.

There's a lot of advice and help here on WISH all you have to do is ask and we'll be there for you.

Will you do me a favor and post to our WISH challenge thread, as well? That just helps me keep up with my support group. That post is right <b>HERE</b> (http://disboards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=323029).

We have a special member clipart that you can add to your signature, if you wish. What we do is begin with a zero loss, no matter how much weight we may have lost before taking the challenge, and then every time we lose 5 pounds we can "trade up" to a new clipart if we want. There is a great post telling you how to add the WISH clipart to your signature right <b>HERE</b> (http://disboards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=326403).

I'm so glad that you decided to join us. I think you're going to like it here. We have WISHers following all different kinds of eating plans but they all have one thing in common, a desire and need to lose weight. That makes WISH a pretty magical place. Everyone here knows exactly what you are going through because they are going through the same thing.

Our common weakness gives us strength. Strange but true. We all pull together and help each other. So if you ever need help, comfort, support, advice, <i>anything</i>...we'll be right here for you. We're going to help you all we can and we know you're going to help us in return.
