So glad to hear your cruise was a good one! What is next on your cruise agenda?
When you run a marathon over 14 days, it is not too bad. And there is not better scenery then a disney ship to run. Okay, Castaway Cay and WDW are better. But just think, every time you run 3 miles, you burn about 300 calories - what a way to make sure that you do not gain too much on the cruise, and you still can enjoy all the great food.

51 weeks until the Fantasy NYE cruise. Today, I went shopping with DD23 and we were trying on the same clothes. I kept getting the size larger than her, and they just did not look right. We ended up buying the same dress in the same size. Still not sure if the style is appropriate of my age, but we thought it would be fun to wear in the summer, sitting on the deck drinking margaritas (hmmm, margaritas are not part of the healthy life style.)

Entering a fitness challenge today! It's an 8 week program. I'm pretty nervous about the " before" pictures. Wish me luck!

I feel like I'm cheating with you all working so hard to get the weight off. I'm having the gastric sleeve done next week.... not for the cruise, obviously, but hopefully at least 50 pounds will be off by then!

Good luck on your goals. I saw these posts as I was scrolling through and it jumped out at me as it is what I am thinking...lose before teh cruise. I love the idea of doing excercise on the boat. Different scenery and maybe keep up with the calories

Loribee- I did some working out on the Magic and it was great! Our upcoming cruise (11 weeks!) is on the Fantasy. I hear that the gym is smaller and it can be tough to get on the equipment :-( I usually work out mid-day anyway, so fingers crossed it won't be too bad!

Thumbs up

This is my first time posting on this thread. We (mil, fil, dh, dd, ds and myself) are cruising 10/13 dream. My mil, dh and I are all trying to lose weight before our cruise. We weigh in every Monday and if I keep at it, my mil will take me shopping before the cruise!!! I have battled my weight since high school with many female medical problems causing me to gain weight. 6 years ago I had a complete hyst at the age of 27. I am now 33 and heavier than I've ever been. My nurse practioner recomended I check out "The 400 Calorie Fix" book. The basic idea is 4-5 400 calorie meals per day making you burn calories consistently instead of your body guessing how many calories your next meal will be. In three weeks of following this method, I have lost 7.4 lbs!!! It has been soooo easy. Never did I think it would be this easy. Anyway, I'll be checking in here now as well for additional support.

Starting weight (3 weeks ago) = 265.4
Today's weigh-in = 258
Total loss = 7.4

Hello all. I've been on an extended absence fr these boards because after a year of logging my foods and eating on plan and running 5 miles every other day (plus classes etc.) I was just frustrated by the same 5 pounds up and down. My sister suggested I get my thyroid checked.
Ding ding ding we have a winner!
So now I'm on meds and ready to do this thing. Disregarding all the small fluctuations last year, I'm down to my last 18 pounds. So lets do this Monday!
Oh. And two weeks until my third half marathon.

Lol. I'm glad there's another cruise running nut like me. The longest single run I've done on deck four was just under ten miles (30 laps). But man it's the best views and so few people get up for the sunrises.
