Get in Shape & Lose Weight for August 2014 Group
It may be past August 2014, but we don't want it to end...

The "Get in Shape & Lose Weight for August 2014" Group continues to work towards our goals and support each other...

"A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive."

~Walt Disney

Are you going to Disney World (or Disneyland) in August 2014? Well guess what? It's going to be hot, you're going to walk at least 5-10 miles a day, and you're going to have to wear shorts (and/or dresses, skirts, etc.), tank tops and swimsuits. And it's less than 6 months away!

So set your goal to Get in Shape & Lose Weight for August. I see this a place for motivation, inspiration, accountability and support. So let's get started!

General Guidelines

Check in at least once a week on Saturday. (Sunday as an alternate.)

Stick to the Code... they're more like "guidelines" than actual rules pirate:
  • If I do any type of activity, I will see it as a positive thing.
  • Food is not my enemy. I need to give my body what it needs to be the best it can be.
  • I will try to do more for myself today than I did yesterday.
  • I will give myself permission not to be perfect.
  • I will take a short break if my body and/or mind really needs it. When I'm able, I will start up again without feelings of guilt.
  • I will do something good for myself/have fun/relieve stress.
  • I will try to get enough sleep and rest.

I'm in!! I need to lose 15lbs. My girlfriend lost 25lbs on isagenix. Has anyone heard of this?

I'm in too. I have been walking 10,000 steps a day for 3 weeks in a workplace challenge - so I'm pretty much done with dropping pounds. I need to do calistetics, sit-ups, leg lifts, and exercise stuff that will tighten up any flab. Once the challenge is over in 3 more weeks - I'll need support to stay on top of it and very much appreciate a Disney group to keep me focused.

Yes! This is me too! I would love to lose 20 pounds, but would be happy losing 15. ::yes::

I'm in! I hate having my picture taken so adding in the heat, humidity, AND shorts with a photograph that will stand the test of time.....

Ugh. :sick:

sktjcox 02-27-2014 05:40 PM

I'm another, "would love to loose 20 but will settle for 15!"

Mrs. M. Mouse 02-27-2014 07:18 PM

I'm in, ideally I'd love to loose 30-50 but realistically I am shooting for 15-20 and will be happy with that. I've been increasing water intake and reducing portion sizes. It's very easy to take an extra portion sometimes but I have to remember it's not needed nutrition wise :-)

I have a treadmill here at home and keep saying yeah I'll do that but then when we finish our activities for the day after work there's very little motivation left! Can anyone else relate???

I am in! My mom and i just started weight watchers last week, I stepped on the scale today for my first time since starting last Thursday! To my surprise i lost 3.6lbs. Excited to hear what others are doing to help them lose weight. Cant wait for our August Vacation!!

bobbie68 02-27-2014 07:36 PM

Hi I am in. I look at photos of me now and :scared1:.

I am in for 15lbs. but I will settle for 10.

I have been trying to do wii fit and just dance and watch my sugar intake.

Good luck everyone and happy weight loss!:goodvibes

Nurse_Mommy4 02-27-2014 08:00 PM

Count me in! I need to lose a lot more than 25 but that is my goal for August.
I am joining back up with my weight watchers at work group. I am too busy usually for the meetings at work but at least I can weigh in and have a little more accountability.:blush:

ETA: Maybe we should pick a check in day. You know where we share progress (and non progress) and encourage and celebrate with one another!

disneygrl704 02-27-2014 08:31 PM

I like the check in day idea. It makes it more real to me like I have something to answer to so I need to be motivated! I have been drinking water and watching carbs and sugar. It's hard because I only want to eat bread and pasta! I have dropped about 8 lbs in the past 3 weeks by doing this but I need to start an exercise routine to keep it off. I hate to exercise and I am seriously unmotivated to do so!

2jboysmom 02-27-2014 09:13 PM

I am in! I have started going to Zumba! I am doing weight watchers. I need to walk way more than I do right now. I would love to lose 20-25 pounds, but will take any! 1 pound at a time 1 step at a time! My main goal is to keep up with my kids at Disney.
