Morning Losers!

I haven't checked in this week as I've been burried at work since it's a short week (and I had a short week previous to this one too!).

Today I head over to the hospital for an out-patient procedure, but before I go....I wanted to show off my new clippie!

Congratulations Sneezie and all the biggest losers! Keep up the good work!

Don't forget to PM your weigh in info to LuvBaloo tomorrow and your COW info to donac.

donac, I am glad to hear that they let you ditch the crutches. Did they let you ditch the 3 lb weight on your foot too?!? The freezer and sharing is a good plan to deal with those cookies.

maznorm, sorry to hear that you have been feeling sick and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

A belated Happy Canada Day to you, LuvBaloo.

Okay, losers, tomorrow's weigh in marks the halfway point for this challenge. Are you on track? Are you heading in the right direction? Have you reviewed your goals for this challenge and adjusted your plan to make sure that you get there? We're here to give you support and help when you need it but when it comes down to it, the only person who is going to get this done is you! You deserve the healthy life that you want and the fact of the matter is that getting there takes hard work and determination.

I looked at my post about my goals and my goal this challenge was to lose 25 lbs. Well, I've lost 11 so far. My goal can still be reached but I am going to have to kick things up more than a notch or two to get there. So I am ready to go!

Bonus QOTD -- How many days until your next Disney trip? I have 54 days to my rescheduled DL trip and 168 days until my WDW trip. I have to keep these days in mind to help inspire me to be in better shape these trips than I have been in the past.

Have a great day, losers!

Hi Jackie! You were posting while I was typing so I missed you. I can't see your new clippie but I am sure that it looks fabulous on you! Congratulations! I am closing in on my 20 lb clippie, too. Good work and good luck on your procedure. I hear that it is finally summer in Phoenix!

Oh, no question about it being summer here now! We did have a pretty mild June overall, but monsoons are here so it's hot and more humid than normal. While we don't get much rain in the valley, the thunder and lightening that rolls by many evenings makes it hard to do that end of the day swim. I don't know if little sister would appreciate my coming by at 6AM to swim.

Time to hit the shower....have a healthy day everyone!

OH....and it's 72 days till my DCL cruise...so that makes it 65 will WDW! WOOOO HOOOOO!

Hi all!

QOTD: Well, my goal for this challenge was to lose 25 lbs...as of my ww wi yesterday - which I will send to LuvBaloo tomorrow - I am down 21.8...only 3.2 to go to my summer goal! There are 77 days till my DL vacation in September so it is coming up! I have been doing the gym a lot and am hoping to be in good cardio health by then...I want to be able to do what I want there without worrying about huffing and puffing!

Have a great day all and congrats to this weeks biggest loser!


Sarah

Dropped sis off at the doctors this a.m. and she hit her 15 pound mark! I think that's what the new clippie says...

6:00 a.m. is Ok- it's the 5:00 a.m. time frame I can't deal with - NEVER think that if you are up for a swim that waking me will cause an issue - I can just roll over... you can use the pool anytime you want - this is your health we are talking about - besides I've been known to jump in and do some laps in the morning myself!

Wedding cake mania:

Guess what I'm doing today? Baking a wedding cake! I make about 15-20 wedding cakes a year from my home kitchen. And July is wedding crazy. So lots of cake. What to do when food surrounds you in your own environment? My solution is to make sure I count EVERY bite & lick and whenever possible (when I don't have to have my taste buds alert) I chew gum. I also make sure I have a bowl of cut up fruit on the counter next to the cake tops to remind me which I should be snacking on.

My QOTD has nothing to do with this, though. My uniform when I'm baking is a tye dye mickey head t-shirt & a purple bandana. It reminds me why I make the cakes to begin with: Disney money!

QOTD: What do you do to make a little extra Disney money? Or how do you save for Disney?

I have 240 days until I visit Disneyland for the first time ever. Then after that I'll do WDW again, but that trip isn't officially planned yet. I think I'm going to stay at Fort Wilderness for the first time ever on that trip.

I'm curious, why are multiple people posting QOTDs? Do we not have a coach this week?

Wow, Sarah! That is super that you are so close to your goal and the challenge isn't even half way done! All your hard work is paying off! You go girl!

Sounds like you have super willpower and a great plan to help you with your cake baking. I am sure that you make a lot of people happy with your beautiful creations. I always wondered do you as a baker have a back up cake in case something happens to the "real" cake -- I think of those videos you see of bad things happening to beautiful cakes.

I use my DVC to save for Disney. That takes care of my accommodations. I have APs for DL so that helps and I try and book my airfare on a cheap SW flight. WDW trips take more planning and more saving. Everything has to be paid for well before it is time to go or we just don't go. I just paid for my December airfare so all I need now for December is tickets and spending money. I can save that up in five months.

Oh, how exciting, a visit to Walt's first park. I love DL. I grew up nearby and worked there as a cast member many, many years ago. I can't tell you about Fort Wilderness, although it looks like it would be a lot of fun. I think donac likes to stay there.

Have a great day, losers!

Bonus QOTD -- How many days until your next Disney trip?

My ticker says a good number of days. That may change in the next coupleof months. Dh wants to go to celebrate his 55th birthday. (Mine is 6 months before his) So we may do that in Nov of 2010. My dsis may be graduating college (It took her 10 years)next May and one of my other sisters and I may be planning a trip for her to celebrate. I don't know when that will be but it may not be until next AUg because she is starting a new job in a couple of weeks.

As far as saving for Disney is concerned...it is a budgeted item on my dh's and my monthly budget. We want to go to DW and on a Disney cruise in 3 years...I am almost halfway to what we are budgeting for then. As far as saving for my more frequent disnyland trips, I work overtime and save a portion of that as well as getting an ap this year and chosing hotels with entertainment rates!

My family is considering Fort Wilderness for when we go in 3 years. For the ages my kids will be at that time I think it will be for the best. There really seems to be so much other stuff to do at that resort and we were going to be spending a lot of time over there anyway for the hoop de doo review and the nightly campfire/marshmallow roast/movie...plus there are 6 of us in the party so we will reserve a cabin so we can all stay together.

I don't have a specific trip planned yet. We really want to do the Panama Canal Cruise in 2011, but those dates aren't even set yet.

We put some money into our vacation account every month. Of course we occasionally borrow from it for major purchases, but it feels good knowing a little bit gets put away.

CONGRATULATIONS Sneezie!!!


Well, I donít know everybody yet, but I hope that everybody has a great 4th of July weekend. I know that some people are under the weather, and I hope that they are getting better everyday. Now as far as questions of the day, how did I get so far behind?

These are the ones that I found that I have answered yet.

Bonus QOTD: what are you going to do tomorrow and Thursday to ensure a good weigh in on Friday?

My DD and I are going to hit the gym an extra time this week to try and add a little weight loss insurance.

Bonus QOTD -- How many days until your next Disney trip?

We were supposed to be going on a Disney cruise in October, but I think that itís just not only to happen because I was laid off and havenít worked since February. We are trying to reschedule it for January 2010 Ė I donít know how many days that is, but itís a bit further than originally planned.

QOTD: What do you do to make a little extra Disney money?

I pickup every single penny, nickel, dime ect. that I find on the street. It amazes me that people will drop even a penny and not reach down to pick it up. Also, even though I am unemployed and drawing unemployment, I still managed to put at least a few dollars in my savings out of every check I receive.

If you are travelling this holiday weekend, please be safe!
