Welcome to 2013 and WISH Away the Pounds--January 2013 Edition
Losers and Maintainers welcome!


Quick overview:
Weigh in days
January 1 (starting weight AND goal for month in pounds)
January 5
January 12
January 19
January 26
January 31 (last chance; does not apply to maintainers)

Pm weights to Rose&Mike

Coaches for January
January 1-9 Rose
January 10-17 Pamela
January 18-24 Emily (ColoradoLime)
January 25-31 LisaH

Future Hosts:
February (LisaH)
March (Pamela)
April (Rose)
May (Dona)

How the challenge works:
After many years of the BL challenge we have decided to shake things up a bit. Change is good, right?

The goal of the new challenge is to meet your weight loss/maintain goals on a monthly basis. Results will be posted as percentages toward goal and your color will change as you approach your goal, similar to the exercise thread on the WISH boards. It is the hope that this new format will encourage some great discussions about weight loss, maintaining, diet, exercise and healthy living!

It is up to the hostess each month as to whether she wants to have coaches/Question of the day, mini-challenges, etc. It is her month, so she can choose to handle it how she wants.

Heres how the new challenge will work. It is going to be a monthly individual challenge. Each month is a new start. You are competing against yourself to meet your goals for the month. No one will know your actual weight (unless you share it) except the hostess for the month. NO GOAL IS TOO SMALL.

Let me repeat: NO GOAL IS TOO SMALL. A loss is a loss is a loss. Your color will change based on your % lost toward goal.

On January 1 you will pm Rose&Mike (hostess for January) your starting weight AND your goal for the month. On the weekend of January 5, 12, 19, 26, and 31 you can pm Rose&Mike an updated weight. On Monday nights the thread will be updated with percentage toward goal.

Here is an example of what the stats will look like.


Updated January 7, 2013
Minnie Mouse 25.00 %
Daisy Duck 12.00 %
Goofy 0.00 %
Donald Duck 33.33 %
Mickey Mouse 40.00 %


Weight Loss Goals:
10%, orange
25% bright pink
50% purple
75% turquoise
90% red--ALMOST THERE!
100%WISH green

In this case Goofy, put on a few pounds, but that will be reported as 0%. We are not going to call people out, but just report positive moves towards your goal!

Minnie Mouse had a starting weight of 110 with a goal of 4 pounds. At her weigh in she reported a weight of 109 with a percentage loss of 25%.

Your color will change based on your % loss. If you gain, your percentage will decrease, and your color will change, but no one will know your weight except the hostess. Only your % loss toward goal will be reported. Negative percentages will not be reported

Participants (other than the hostess) will not know your pound lost goal or actual weight unless you choose to share it with them.

Maintainers will set a goal for the month of number of weeks they would like to stay in maintain range (+/- 4 pounds).
They will weigh in on the first day of the month and then on each of the weekends. Their results will be reported as percentages along with their goal.

For example:
Pluto 1/4 25%.

Pluto has a goal of maintaining all four weeks. He put on 1 pound at the first weigh in, but is in his maintain range.

Maintainer Goals
25% bright pink
50% purple
75% turquoise
100%WISH green

It really is pretty simple. Remember, no one will see your weight or pound loss goal except the hostess unless you choose to share it.

Percentage loss will be updated once a week. If you miss sending in your weight over the weekend, no big deal, just send an update the following weekend. Please understand that this is a volunteer job and the hostess will only be updating once a week.

Hopefully I have answered all of your questions.

Good luck! I look forward to seeing everyone meet their healthy living goals!

This new challenge is all about goals! Your goals! I have shared a link about setting goals, but there are many more on the web if you google it.

Setting a weight loss goal can be overwhelming. It is hard at first to know what is attainable, too much, too little etc. And sometimes when we have a big goal in mind it is a little overwhelming.


QOTD--December 28, 2012
So since Jan 1 is still a few days off, I want you to start thinking about your goals.

Do you have a goal in mind for January, or even 2013? How did you come up with this goal? Is it based on pounds, inches, clothing size, or something else?

For the purpose of this challenge we are measuring pounds, so how does your goal fit in with the challenge?

Don't think so much about HOW you are going to achieve it yet, but think in terms of what is realistic and start breaking it down into smaller parts.

Share with the group what you would like about your goal.

QOTD--
I have a goal for January of 3 pounds. I want to set it higher, but I am being realistic, and know that the full marathon the second week in January will complicate things a little bit. My long term goal is to get back to 137 pounds. As of today that is about a 17 pound loss. Which sounds just huge to me.

In 2010 I started the Wish BL challenge with a goal to get down to 150. I did that and surpassed it in 2011, but along the way got sick and had to give up gluten which has been a huge transition for me. I understand that some people can give it up without ever thinking twice about it, but food and cooking are a big deal at our house so it has been a little tough for me. Ok, who am I kidding. We are being honest right? I spent most of 2012 pretty depressed and unhappy. I don't think even my friends or the folks I work with realized how bad it had gotten. But I am feeling better and a little more in control. Ready to get back to my lean, mean fighting weight!

Right now I am sitting a few pounds above that initial 150, so my first goal is to get back there.

So to break down my goals:
January--back to 150. (~3-4 pounds)
February--146 (~3-4 pounds)
March--142 (~3-4 pounds)
April--139 (~3-4 pounds)
May--137 (~2-3 pounds)

I am a little frustrated with myself that I put these pounds on YET AGAIN. But, I am catching it early this time and by summer time, I should be comfortably back in my shorts!

Remember, you do not have to share weights with the group if you do not feel comfortable doing so.

You don't even have to set a goal past January if that is too overwhelming right now.

Just try to start breaking things down into small, achievable tasks.

January goal.. I'm thinking 4 pounds. I have been stuck at the same weight for 3 weeks now and I'm determined to get the scale moving again. I think 4 would be attainable but of course, I'm hoping for more! Long term, I'd love to be at my personal goal weight of 135 but I have a very very long way to go to get there. I'd personally love to see a 75 pound loss in 2013.

Took some time off in December, but I'm in! I'd LOVE to lose 6 pounds this month, and I think I can do it. Woot!

My goal is 6 pounds for this month, but since I've started working with a trainer I realize that it may not happen since I'll be building muscle. I WILL be happy with any toning and inch loss in place of pounds dropping!

Bread. Crackers. Carby snacks. We just don't keep them anymore because they are awful for us!

All he said was that I since my parents have a history of high blood pressure, if my weight stays high, I will eventually get high blood pressure too (I don't right now... but I got his hint). It wasn't anything dramatic and it was a small comment, but it enough to make me face the music.

I realized what I really needed was a community to help me. I hope you guys here at the DIS can help me! I'll PM my weight and goal Jan. 1st!

Let's do this!
You are in the right place! This is such a great way to get support, encouragement and advice. Do you have a specific plan you are going to follow (like Weight Watchers), or has your Doctor recommended anything?

My health was a big kick in the rear for me. I was really paranoid about diabetes and my blood pressure was getting higher. Not in the "high" range but high for me.

I had bursitis in one hip years ago and it was so painful! I eventually got a cortisone shot and haven't had a problem since. Glad you are doing better. This is a great place for motivation!

I have a lot of things that I try to avoid -- I think popcorn is a huge one. We are a popcorn family! DH and I would have it several times a week. He is a popcorn master and makes it better than the movie theater. When I lost weight before I had to pretty much ban popcorn from being cooked. My family suffered but were mostly understanding. And no, plain air popped is not a "substitute"! I would rather eat cardboard. Of course sweets and chips/crunchy snacks are a big trigger too. I also try to allow myself a piece or 2 of dark chocolate a day but often I go past that limit. Currently I have several bags of chocolate that I got for Christmas that are problematic. I need to figure out a way to control it. I will probably go hide it upstairs and maybe just bring 2 pieces down in the morning. I rarely ever go back upstairs after I come down in the morning so if it is out of sight/ out of mind it will be easier.

At my job they keep bags of mini chocolate candy bars in the supply closet. That is going to be a huge problem too. I am going to just have to have will power. And of course people are always bringing in sweets and junk. It is harder when you just have to rely on willpower. I don't think anyone at work will join me in this so I am on my own. I am not sure yet how supportive they will be.

I will definitely need to be a LOSER after this holiday eating! Thank goodness I started the holiday at the low end of my maintenance range!

We are having our Christmas celebration with my extended family today, so I need to dash into the shower. TTYL............P

Plus it keeps me in check and still having something sweet to look forward to rather than indulging in a whole pint of ice cream.
OMG! I can't even buy Snickers Ice Cream bars-- I LOVE them! I could literally eat the entire box in one day (not saying how I know that ). I love ice cream too but I do okay with having it in the house. As long as it isn't Snickers Ice cream bars. . .

Happy Saturday! I did some breakfast experimenting this morning. I made 3 recipes from Pinterest to try to find some low carb breakfast options that I can make on the weekend and reheat during the week. I made a GF Cream Cheese pancake-- they were okay, think I need to tinker with the recipe a bit. I tried two egg dishes, a breakfast casserole with eggs and bacon that was really good, and an egg muffin that wasn't as great. I only had a few bites of each of them and I want to see how they reheat tomorrow. I always overcook the egg casseroles so I need to figure out the perfect timing so they are cooked enough that reheating them finishes the cooking with out them getting rubbery.

Next up I need to figure out snacks and lunch for work. I like soup and salad for lunch. Usually I have the soup about an hour or so before lunch, so it ends up being more as a snack, then I have the salad. I am very fortunate that where I work the other secretaries make breakfast around 9am every day so there is no problem with me heating something up and no one seems to have a problem with me eating at my desk as long as I am discreet about it. My trouble time is around 4pm, when I get off of work and get home. That is when I just start snacking on anything I can find. I need to plan out set snacks and stick to it. Unfortunately I found out that a lot of the snacks I used to have were what was making me sick so this will require some planning.

Better go clean up my kitchen. It is still covered with with my breakfast experiment mess!

Count me in as a maintainer! I'm up a few from the crazy December we had, but nothing unmanageable...my immediate goal is to drop those few extras. The WDW half should help with that!

I'm in!!! Having this WISH group when I lost before was such a great help and inspiration. I think my life is now at a stable enough point that I can successfully dedicate myself to weight loss again, and participate here regularly.

QOTD--December 28, 2012
So since Jan 1 is still a few days off, I want you to start thinking about your goals.

Do you have a goal in mind for January, or even 2013? How did you come up with this goal? Is it based on pounds, inches, clothing size, or something else?

For the purpose of this challenge we are measuring pounds, so how does your goal fit in with the challenge?

Don't think so much about HOW you are going to achieve it yet, but think in terms of what is realistic and start breaking it down into smaller parts.

Share with the group what you would like about your goal.
In the end of 2010 and first half of 2011 I lost 50 pounds. It was a huge accomplishment and the changes that I made I have mostly stuck with me. I have been able to maintain that with about a 5 pound swing up and down. At the lowest I had lost about 58 pounds but that last 8 never really stayed gone long enough for me to consider it a real loss. I have been on the upper end of the 5 pound swing for a while but as of today I am right at that 50 pound loss mark. Seems like a great day to go ahead and get started!

I have IBS and that has actually been really bad the last few weeks so that is really why I have lost the 5 pounds, but I will take it any way I can get it! Instead of overindulging for the holiday there was very little I could eat. I have to basically "reset" my system which makes it a great time to start back on healthy eating.

In the time that I have been away from the WISH board I actually did some research on IBS and found out about a concept called FODMAP-- that our body may not be able to digest many of the natural sugars in our everyday foods-- even the healthy ones. We know about Lactose Intolerance and of course the effect that beans can have on us , but there are different sugars in many foods that cause the same effect. If you have IBS I highly recommend you google and read about it. It has really been life changing for me.

So anyway, back to the question! (yes, I still like to talk a lot!). I have always focused on smaller goals. My total goal is another 30-50 pounds. I am not sure where I will find a good sustainable weight that I feel comfortable with. I think actually losing 50 (where the charts say I should be) would be too much for me. For Jan. I would like to set my goal for 10 pounds but I think that may be unrealistic so I will go with 7 pounds.

Off to go reread my South Beach Diet book. It always inspires me and it never hurts to review the "rules" to insure success!

Hopefully this will be the month to see that scale moving again!

Hi Liz! Hoping to be re-joining you as a maintainer soon.

Off to go reread my South Beach Diet book. It always inspires me and it never hurts to review the "rules" to insure success!
Glad you are getting used to your new schedule. I am debating a low carby kind of thing for a couple of weeks, but I am very on the fence about it. I had such a good system when I lost weight in 10/11 which just went out the window with the g-f stuff. Just not sure what I am doing now.

Isn't it funny how one thing will bother someone so much and someone else not at all. I can eat a can of beans a day (as long as they are rinsed) and I feel fabulous. But give me a piece of regular bread or a regular beer and I feel horrid. Hope that ibs flareup settles down soon.

Count me in! I have gone up and down a lot in the last four years and need something to hold me accountable! I am going to set a goal of five pounds for January. I would do more but I will be traveling for work and eating out quite a bit. Long term goal is 125lbs. I will shoot for 75 in 2013.
Thanks!!

No sad faces. It is a big goal, but one month at a time, right?
Welcome!

I'm in! I need some motivation. I was down at a great weight and then bursitis set in to my hips and I let it kick me down. I'm back and going to get myself back where I want to be.
