A long time but within that stretch I've had to get back on the wagon. My advise is to ALWAYS attend meetings. IF not every week, every couple. As for the goal weight. Set something livable and perhaps about 5 pounds more than you really want to be. Gives you a bit of slack on those weeks you need it.

CONGRATS on maintenance. I remember when I hit my goal. Best accomplishment for sure

update

Update:
I have lost 50lbs since my last cruise in March 2013. I have another 60lbs to go. My next cruise is in 13 months.
I may not make my goal weight by then but I will be not only thinner but healthier by then. I will be in my family photos and will participate in the Castaway Cay 5K and get the t-shirt. Those are my goals.

Went to the doctor's last week and I had lost 31 lbs since I last saw him. My blood pressure was down and he took me off of my diuretic and I am still taking a low dose BP pill. He wants me to do all my labs and see him again in 6 months.

I am actually an online member. I'm not having trouble staying on track, just figuring out when I want to call it. lol

Me me!!

I am on a mission this year!! I have had a lifelong battle with weight, I've probably lost a million pounds over the years, which means I've gained back a million and one! UGH!!

Back on track again lately, working out 5 days a week at the gym, elliptical, arc trainer, weights. And I just started training for walking a half marathon in May.

My overall goal is to lose 80 pounds in 9 months, when we cruise on the Dream and also hit WDW. It's ambitious, but I typically average 8 to 10 pounds a month when I am really on the ball. So that's where I'm aiming, though really I am taking it week by week to look at the smaller, more obtainable picture. Baby steps to get there!
As my user name states, I want to be in pictures this trip!!! I always have an excuse to hide behind the camera, and it's time to be proud!

Thanks for this forum!

Sounds like a plan! Anything you are able to get off will make you feel better and improve your health.

I hear you about the loosing and gaining. If I had a dollar for every pound I'd be a rich woman.

Have a blast on your cruise!

Hi everyone! I'm DeDe and I'm on a journey to lose weight. I would love to lose 40-50 pounds before my Disneyland Vacation in December 2014. Not sure its reasonable, but I'm going to try. I've currently lost 16 pounds since the first of the year.

Help me stay on track!

Hello all! Today was my first visit to the WISH boards looking for others who are doing Medifast. I'm joining in here as well! I've got about 100lbs to lose. I'm at 237 right now, started at 250 3 weeks ago when I started Medifast.

Hey everybody! I am new to the WISH board. I am going to Italy as a nanny in July. I will be visiting Disneyland Paris, on one of my weekends off. I started my journey 2 weeks ago at 204 pounds. I haven't weighed since I started because I used to have problems with being obsessive about the scale. I have a doctor appointment on Good Friday, a little over a month since I started, and it will serve as my first weigh in. I am working out 6-7 days a week and tracking my food on myfitnesspal. I think I am noticing a difference, but we shall see.

My short term goal: lose 30 lbs by July 1st (4 months)
My long term goal: lose 74 lbs in a year

My goal weight: 130 lbs

WISH me luck!

Hi everyone.

I've been on the WISH boards for a little less than a week so I thought I'd better say hi here before any more time passed!

I started at about 175 (174.8) lbs. I've never weighed even close to that. I am 5'1". About 4 years ago I weighed 134, but due to a lot of big upsets I started emotional eating and indulged in a few too many adult beverages. I've cut that stuff out now and so far I have lost about 6 lbs. I weigh 168.9 right now.

I've been on WW for almost a month now, and it's been a pretty easy transition so far. My plan is to stick with that, but I'd also like to increase my exercise- I haven't been exercising much so far- and increase my fruit and veggie intake. Otherwise I will stick to what I've been doing, which is staying within my WW points for the day.

My goal weight is 149 right now, but I'd like to get back to 134 eventually. I just don't want to overwhelm myself. I often quit eating healthy when I get overwhelmed or think the goal is too daunting. I also don't have a goal date in mind. I'm taking things slow and steady.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone. . Just found this thread and love it!

I have a trip in June to DW and want to lose some weight, get healthy and fit before our trip. Ultimately I want to lose 110 LBS. I am using the Jillian Michaels program.

I wish you all good luck and remember to focus on the positive accomplishments no matter how small and do not beat yourself up for "falling off the wagon." It is okay, one day will not kill you! Just get right back on track and do not let one incident snowball into guilt. You can do it one day at a time!

So, as of yesterday at my Weight Watchers meeting, I have lost 61 lbs. Getting closer to goal! 49 lbs to go.

My cruise is 11 months away.

As of yesterday at my Weight Watchers meeting, I have lost 70 lbs.
40 lbs to go until goal.

Cruise is March 8. Even if I don't make goal by then, I will be much smaller than my last cruise which was at my heaviest.

Great job! You're an inspiration!
