You won't be, I'm sure I need to find a current picture of myself where you can see my full body so I can post it over there. I think I have one on my old Geeks on a Plane PTR from this summer...

Man, she lost about 6 or 7 inches because of her health issues? That has to suck I like being tall

Well, if you work on it, maybe you can get close to 200? I'm waiting until November 1 before I really start working on it, although I've been kind of sort of working on it lately (watching portion size and such). Tonight, I brought a lunch to work (sandwich, grapes, and water) and then completely forgot I'd brought it and wound up ordering takeout Then I have my vacation, and before I go back to work, I'm spending Halloween at Six Flags, so I'd rather not be fussing about calories over the next three weeks. November 1, I'll start really working on it

I'm just praying my flight isn't full...I've never went on a Friday morning so I don't know how full it will be. Hopefully not many people are going to Disney that day!

I'm going to join the weight loss thread too!
I definitely will When I got on the scale yesterday, I'd actually lost about three pounds, and I'm not sure how I'm sure your flight will work out, though If you want, I can text you once I land in Orlando (because my flight's so early, but I land at 3pm) and let you know

Each of us has our own battles, I just wish mine was at 160! But I know if I was 160, I'd want to be 140, so I totally understand.
I've always been heavy, so I don't really "know" any different. The only thing I know for sure is that two years ago, I could fit into size 22 jeans. I can't now. Ideally, I'd like to get down to a size 14 or 16. Even my sister, who's the skinniest person in our family, is about a 12. Our family's just big.

I'm sorry you had to deal with all of that. I hope things are better now (weight issues aside) and that they continue to be that way.

I'm sorry you had to go through so much, I can't even imagine dealing with everything you have. Perhaps we should move this discussion over to the new weight loss thread and not hijack Dana's TR.
I don't mind the hijacking, it gives me something to respond to at work

So, today's Saturday, and you guys know what that means...

Name That Semi-Obscure Character Game!

This is round 4, so after this, there's one more (next Saturday) unless there's a tie, which it looks like there will be.

Remember, the first person to get it gets the point. No edits or second guesses Also, I want the proper name of the character not "___'s ___ in ___"

I am horrible at this game! I need to watch some disney movies that aren't just the kids favorites. We have Mulan somewhere, but I don't even think I have ever watched it.

Your final itinerary looks great. Won't be long now. I especially like the 3 MNSSHP part. I know that we will miss some things and will wish we were going to another one, but I guess that is what next year is for.

All the food talk and weight loss talk has me both hungry and feeling like I need to diet! I think the way to go is portion control, now if only I can atleast control that. I love food and don't love exercise!

Stinks that you have or feel you have to buy an extra seat. Atleast you know that way you will have plenty of room, and glad you were able to get it at the cheaper rate. Plane seats are never comfortable!

I'll have to check out the weight-loss thread when I get a chance. I need some motivation!!!

I'm horrible at some of the games I've seen on PTRs Mulan was pretty cute, considering what it was about. I love Mushu "Dishonor on your cow!"

Honestly, if I were going with my family (and was responsible for paying for that many tickets), I don't think I'd go to three parties. But I'm solo (technically), so I can afford it But yes, there's always next year!

I'm just like you, I don't like exercise and I love food But I'm working on it!

I'm not sure if I have to, but I'd rather just buy it and hope for the refund than fret about being asked to leave the plane or, worse, getting stranded in Baltimore or Jackson (the stops my flight makes down to Orlando). But yeah, at least I'll have more room

Come on over! It's a pleasant thread!

I got bored at work tonight and found a bunch of old Disney World commercials that feature adults instead of kids on YouTube Some of them were really sweet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahGsElNsaQM This was my favorite

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xqiD6tEZTo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2lqJFNIpdc This one's actually dogs, but it's so cute!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA93vBjD4EU You have to wait for the end for the Disney bit, though.

Just thought you guys might want some magic

those commercials were cute! I liked the last one the best...well, and of course the one with the dogs!

My favorite Disney commercial is the one where the kids are sleeping and Cinderella's horse-drawn carriage is coming down their street.

Glad you guys liked them I was lurking on the boards last night and wander into a thread that was basically parents vs childless/child-free adults and someone started linking a couple of those commercials in response to someone saying something about "there are no disney commercials without kids in them". I just thought those were really sweet
