Weight loss to Disney
 
Yikes! It was 41 weeks yesterday until we go to Disney and standing on the scales I can confess that I have 62 pounds to lose. That's pretty much 1.5 pounds per week between now and 'D' Day!!!

Anyone else on a weight loss mission for the Mouse?!?

Good luck!

I don't have a weight loss mission exactly, but I do want to keep up exercising and start running more before I get there in 42 days - work hard and then celebrate any accomplishments at Disney (then keep it up)

Good luck, I too am on a mission to lose weight for our upcoming Disney visit.

I've tried to put up a weight ticker but it only shows the bar not the weight loss amount for some reason.

I'm working in kg rather than pounds so I have got another 23.4 kgs to lose (52 pounds ish) I've lost 13 kg (29 pounds roughly) since I started my weight loss back in June so I'm on a new target of about 0.7 kg a week ( 1.1/2 in pounds).

So I'll have to work pretty hard over the next few months before my trip in June.

It would be nice to keep motivated with other people who are have a goal like I have :).

Good luck ,magic megadegs and bandit90 :thumbsup2.

Yes I've lost 20lb's so far and DW (Groovee) has lost 22lb in 14 weeks. She's aiming to loose 3st over all which is what she gained from the medication she is on. I'm going with the flow. Aiming for 12lbs off by Christmas.

Magic Megadegs 10-21-2012 06:01 AM

Good luck guys. I'm pleased there are others on here in the same boat. Huge congrats on the weight loss so far that's awesome!!!

Doing well 2 days in so fingers crossed. 40 weeks 5 days to go!!!

I was in the same situation this year, I did a 150 days to loose my weight. I had 10lbs to go and when I left for Disney only had 3lbs I didn't loose.

Portion sizes, increased exercise and cutting out fizzy juice really made the difference for me.

I'm back to WDW next November so it's about 375 days until departure, so I'm joining this thread to keep on track and motivated!!

I joined Weight Watchers online in January and made my own target to lose 36lbs. It came off gradually and I am very close to my target. I won't reach it before we go to WDW, but I don't care because I know I look a lot better and I feel really good too!

Whatever you manage to lose before you go is still a loss. :goodvibes

I have about 6 months to lose between 25-30 pounds. I lost about 5 pounds this month without doing anything other than not eating junk and not drinking fizzy stuff.

I'd recommend downloading the My Fitness Pal app if you have a smart phone. It gives you a recommended daily calorie intake then you put in what you eat each day and what excercise you've done and it'll give you the total calories burned etc. It has pretty much every food you can think of on it too

Magic Megadegs 10-21-2012 06:51 AM

Lots of us then which is fabulous. I'll be weighing in every Friday morning as that is my 'D' day week date! I may not be brave enough to posture actual weight even in Dis land but I will post pounds lost (gained) etc and total to date. I kind of feel accountable then, lol x

Some of you have had some amazing weight losses, huge congrats to you. We have decided thanks to lovely, helpful advice on here invest in the photo pass plus as the number of photos we have as a family with our 7 and 4 year old is pitiful (largely as I am camera shy, my place is behind not in front of the lens). Next August the intention is to rock that photo pass and get bored of looking at all the many family shots we'll get x

So pleased a few of you want to join in, have a great Sunday x

I am a huge fan of both ww and my fitness pal xxx

This was my reason for doing it too. I rarely appear on family photos as I am usually behind the camera or feel too unattractive. I have got the photopass and didn't want to be positioning myself behind everyone!

OhanaSam 10-21-2012 07:19 AM

I'm exactly the same I HATE having my photo taken. I always run away or if I'm caught ill delete the photo or unread myself if it ends up on Facebook lol. We're also getting a photo pass and I don't want it to go to waste because I'm uncomfortable or think I look bad. Plus I want to be able to wear a bikini and not feel like a whale XD

Magic Megadegs 10-21-2012 07:39 AM

Love it, I was thinking I could become the new whale like attraction at Typhoon Lagoon! Kind of like Free Willy!!!

That's the felling most of us get before a trip to WDW so why not come along and join the weight loss thread for this month which is ideally just for folks like us who need the inspiration to lose a few pounds (blush or many more) we support you too. I'm weighing myself in the morning and will post too. You will see others with "Pooh bear" sizing in many theme parks not just WDW so don't get stressed out just try to be sensible about what you eat. Good luck, that app really is good you can use the barcode scanner easily to keep track of what you eat and exercise can be manually adjusted by how many minutes you do to tell you how many calories you burn off even better its free to download and use!!

Joining this thread as need to lose at least 40 lbs before the end of august next year. As I have always had an 'up and down' history with my weight this is proving more of a challenge now I'm in my 40's!

;)

xxpeplyxx 10-21-2012 09:40 AM

Fantastic post :-) glad to see others in the same position! At least I dont feel so alone on the Disney weight loss battle
I am also trying to loose weight for my Disney trip I have so far lost 3 stone since June I still need to loose another 3/4 stone by next august, but to be honest I already feel so much happier and confident :-) Ive lost the weight through slimming world! And don't even feel like I am dieting :-)

Look forward to seeing how well you all do! I shall post again once I've lost another half a stone :-)
