Been lurking on this board for a bit - would love to talk to other dieters - been working on modified Atkins since Christmas - 68 pounds so far (still ways to go) - have trip scheduled for December and hoping to reach goal or close to it by then so can REALLY enjoy the park!

Are there guidelines for the WISH board? Where can find them?

Welcome!!! I've only been a WISH'er since April and I can't begin to list all the wonders it's done for me. Everyone is soooo supportive and there's lots of fun things going on that you'll find it a treat to be a big loser (sounds like you already are a BIG LOSER_ congrats on 68 pounds!!!!!)

You can start your own journal if you want to so others can be inspired from your success and help you through your struggles. You can ask for a Private Message buddy to help you through the daily struggles- they try to match you up with someone with similar goals. Ask any questions you have- and come and chat with everyone (I'm so tech challenged that each time I try to get into chat I'm mostly alone- guess I'm hitting the times wrong!)

Those are just a few things that can help ya- just hop on board!

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)
Everyone starts the challenge with the plain 'WISH' clippie and then earns 'loss clippies' in 5 pound increments for the weight loss DURING their participation in the challenge. I lost quite a bit before joining the challenge so I chose to add the 'total loss' amount in my signature under my clippie. Feel free to do the same!

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)

Looking forward to receiving links and being "official" member - I love the motivating and encouraging attitude of every poster I've read! Sometimes it takes someone going through the same struggles to understand and keep us going!

You're right - health issues were the motivating factor -that and all of the sudden, after being a single mom for 17 years, my kids are all leaving me!! My "baby" girl just graduated from high school last Friday and will be going to UNC-Chapel Hill in August - her brothers are 19 (moving out in August) and 20 (moved out last April) so I suddenly realized that it's way past time to start taking care of me and finding my own way in the world!

Thanks for the speedy response - looking forward to many posts to come!!
