Thumbs up

I just realized this part of the boards was here too! I am a 30-year-old mom of 3, and want to get to a much healthier place (hopefully) before we go for number 4. I have lost 15 lbs so far this year (good, but not NEARLY as good as it should have been, even with moving across the country in the middle!) and am at 171 right now. (I'm 5'4) I have been losing and gaining the same 5 lbs for the last 4 months and would really like to lose 20 lbs. At that point I'll be at my wedding weight and looking and feeling pretty good, I think! A better "goal" would be losing 30-35, but we want to get pregnant in the next 5-6 months, so... I would really like to get down to 150. I use SparkPeople to keep track of my calories and I go to a women's gym 3 times a week and do a 1.5 hours workout with lots of cardio and some weight training. I hope I can get involved here and give and get some support and motivation!

I'm pretty new to DIS boards (and am already completely addicted! ) but have been wondering what the WISH icons were for...I'm so glad I found it! We actually decided (my DH and I) to surprise my DD with a trip to WDW for her 6th birthday, and it's our motivation to lose some weight and get healthy (for all that walking ) We started a month and a half ago with my eventual goal of being to lose 125lbs!! I figure we have a year and 3 months or so to do it, and in the last month I've lost 23 lbs...I also use sparkpeople (like jaina) and run on my treadmill three- four times a week. I'm also really looking forward to the support aspect of it from this board

Bumping because I think I need to join this thread again. The WISH challenge was extremely successful for me last year when I was getting ready for my Halloween trip (lost 18lbs!). This year I've had no Disney trip to prep for and well...let's just say I've sort of fallen off the wagon.

I start college in January. Going back to school is a big deal for me so I've decided I want to be in decent shape by the time it rolls around. I weigh 3 more lbs than I did this time last year. Therefore, I'd like to lose seven lbs total by January. And this will be tough because of the holiday season. But I'm gonna do it!

Will be updating periodically. Anyone else joining on for the fall?

I am here and ready to lose...

I am down 10 pounds and just came back from a two week vacation, where I put on more than I wanted, but it is coming off quickly.

I am using loseit, and it really helps with the calorie intake and tracking all the food, if anyone wants to join and link as friends that would be great... Just let me know.

Hey everyone! I just signed up for my first WDW half marathon in January and can't wait! But with the holidays coming up I'm so worried that it will be too easy to fall off my training schedule and just sit around with friends and family eating way too much.

I would like to lose about 10 lbs. before the race. So that's 1 lb. a week. Easy right? Putting it out there in writing makes me feel like I have all of you watching and supporting me to meet my goals.

Looking forward to the challenge!

My weekly weigh in was this morning. Had my doubts but the results were positive!

It's been two weeks so far and I'm already down about three lbs. Four more and I'll be at my first goal. Let's just hope Thanksgiving doesn't set me back. No way I'll be able to stay away from the macaroni and cherry pie....

I guess the key will have to be moderation? Sure I say that now

I'm back and committing here!

I was very successful with Atkins and WISH a few years back! Right now, I'm not sure how much I should be losing? I've been teaching Jazzercise for 6 1/2 years and I am so much stronger, more lean muscle. Its the layer of puff over the top!

I'm down 13 pounds, and am going to start with a goal of 25. See how I feel then??

You at least have the right attitude!

Count Me In!

What I want
  1. Weight < 150 lbs.
  2. Michelle Obama Upper Arms
  3. Flexibility
  4. Be able to do 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups
  5. No migraines
  6. Energy
  7. Clear skin
  8. Walk (maybe jog?) the 2014 WDW half-marathon with DH (if the dates work out with our planned trip)
  9. Enjoy working out and lifting

I started doing the Primal Diet (grudgingly) with DH back in August. We didn't eat wheat or grains. I found that my migraines were much better (only had 1 that month!) and my face was beautifully clear. I also lost 7 lbs. Over the course of September and October I discovered that I get a migraine a day or two after eating grains. I also gained the weight back. So, back to the Primal Diet I go! I resolve to eat no wheat, very little grains (rice, gluten-free items), and limit my sugar and carbohydrate intake.

DH and I have turned our deck into a 3-season room and are going to use it for a home gym. On Black Friday we got the Marcy Pro Compact Trainer.

I also bought a book on lifting for women. I'm going to workout 3x/week for 6 months using the book's plan. I am also going to look for some work out or weight lifting podcasts to listen to on my way home from work for some inspiration.

So, that's it. Wish me luck.

Maplegirl, that sounds like a wonderful pkan and something that you can do.

Good for you!
