I"m taking my first Disney cruise in 123 days! What are you doing to lose weight? As per the other thread, I'm doing Chalene Extreme from Beachbody, which is a 12-week weight/toning workout and it is great!! I highly recommend it. What about you?

There's great support over on the WISH forum in Disboards.

Plus, monthly weight loss and exercise challenges. I find it very motivating. The thing that has helped me most, though, is MyFitnessPal.com. And of course, eating less and exercising more. I'm trying to hit my goal of 90 lbs lost by my Dec cruise on the Fantasy. So far, I'm on track.

Good luck to you!

I have been doing myfitnesspal to count calories and exercising at the y. So far I have lost 4 lbs. Hoping for a steady 2 lbs a week. I would like to lose about 85-90 lbs. We cruise February 26th of next year. I am super excited!

Went back up a few and then back down. Sitting at 5.2 lbs lost. I have been doing the y 5 days a week. Power lift 3 x a week. Yoga twice a week. Spin once a week and step once a week. That is in the morning. I am also trying to do one mile in the evenings 3-4 times a week. This morning I did a 12:33 mile on the mill and that was with walking breaks! Jazzed about that. My current goal is 5 lbs every four weeks until my bday which should give me 30 lbs lost by September 13th.

Hi all! I'm also cruising in September & have a have a goal to lose 30-40 pounds but I'll be happy to lose at least 20!

I had the option of gaining extra credit in my health class by keeping a journal of my food and exercise intake. I started off at 198 jan 2013, by march I was down to 191.5.

3/2013 decided to take boot camp classes & continue talking zumba classes at the gym.

4/2013 no change to my weight still 191.5

5/13/13 decided to jump start/get off this plateau
I did a one day juice fast (white grape, apple juice, water & chicken broth)
Following 2 days, food rich in water (cantaloupe, strawberrys, banana for lunch, apples, mango & raw salad for dinner
Day 4/5 I brought back meat. But I left out all carbs, & dairy. Examples of breakfast was cantaloupe, spinach & eggs. Lots of greens & water

Day 6 weighed myself before bed & I weighed 185.5!!!

Didn't feel hungry, I had a slight headache because I hadn't drank coffee.

& it was noticeable! I finally was able to fit in my pre pregnancy pants (my DS is 2.7 years old) as you can tell I've taken my time to lose weight.

Today I measured myself & lost 6.5 inches throughout!

Last week I was overwhelmed with work so my eating schedule was a bit off.

This week I'm trying Dr, OZ 3 day cleanse. Nothing but blended fruit & veggies.

Just trying new things in order not to plateau again

Glad to be on this forum

My hubs and I are also cruising in September and I am on a weight loss plan directed by my doctor.

I started the end of May and have lost 10 pounds so far. I am on an extreme low carb eating way of life because I have PCOS. My body is essentially carb intolerant. I just got off a week long cruise to Alaska and lost 5 pounds so it can be done even while on a cruise. I am hoping to be down at least another 10-15 pounds by the time we cruise.
