I wish I would have seen this when I started. Congrats to everyone for their weight-loss and good luck to everyone still on their journey. I didn't quite make my goal but I was only a couple of pounds from it. If I can do this, anyone can. I had no motivation in the beginning but I just took it day by day.

name: Jessica
age: 30 but 29 when I started
starting weight: 165lbs
goal weight: 135lbs by October 1st
diet: tracking calories
exercise: walking/jogging on treadmill
weight as of 9/29/12: 137.6lbs

I haven't weighed in a while - I should do that.

But I just finished the 3rd week of Couch to 5K. My motivation to keep going is the thought of being able to do one of the runDisney races, hopefully in 2014.

A setback but not a defeat!

Having major back problems and may have to go on for ANOTHER surgery. I was put back on steroids over the last month and gained back 7 of the pounds that I had lost. I am down but not out. I have adjusted my goal for my cruise in October 2013 instead of our December 2012 trip. At this point my goal for my December trip is to just be able to walk and not be in constant pain.

Name: Lane
Age: 45
Diet: Portion control
Exercise: swimming laps, jogging in the pool and walking
Start date: June 15
Start weight: 250
Current weight: 245
Total lbs lost: 5
Pounds lost this week: +7
Pounds left to lose: 46
Goal before October 2013 Cruise and WDW trip: 175
Overall goal: 160

Total weight loss of 81.2 pounds

still counting calories, eating healthy and working out- slow and steady wins the race right?
Still plugging along.... Todays weight 186 Total weight lost 91 pounds

I had hit the dreaded plateau and did not lose a pound for several months! I finally started losing again late September and dropped 10 pounds in the past 5 weeks.

Diet: Nutrisystem
Exercise: Walk whenever I can. Work a minimum of 45 hours a week and two kids, hard to have a routine.

Well, I made it through Thanksgiving and still managed to lose weight. I'm down 8lbs and am now at 162. I've been keeping on track with the NurtiSystem except on Thanksgiving but I've also been keeping my calories at 1200 per day.

Disney Movie Marathon Marathon Challenge.

I am on board with you guys! I am ready to get in shape for our trip. I have a GREAT idea! See below under Exersize.

We are cruising in Feb on the Dream and following that up with a few days at Disney!

It will be my first cruise!

Name: Kara
Age:32
Current weight. 156.6
Goal weight: 145 (the super hard last 10 lbs)
Diet: Loose old school WW since that is what I know.
Exersize:
THe Disney Movie Marathon Marathon Exersize Plan!
Once my kids find out about our February Trip (to be opened at Christmas) I am sure we will start in on watching Disney Movies. My eliptical is set up right by our projection screen. So my goal is whenever they sit down to watch a Disney Movie to prep for the trip... I will park it on the eliptial for the show. My goal is to be able to make it through a full length animated Disney Feature at a certian pace by trip time!
Also some toning exersizes for buns thighs, and sit ups for my gut on non movie days. Right now I am doing it with Christmas Movies until I can call it by it's real name after Christmas presents are opened.

Anyone want to try out my Disney Movie Marathon Marathon challenge???
