We will be on the same cruise! I have to get back in the gym, I haven't been in over a week! I have 10 - 15 left to lose and it is proving to be the hardest!

Okay, now I really have to work at it, so we can meet, and see our accomplishments. I have the picture from my Dec. 2011 cruise that I keep comparing myself too for motivation.

Even though I am working out 6 days a week and recording my food, I am finding it very difficult. I am half way to my total weight loss and the results are so great, I just want to cheat - like eating 5 chocolate wafers, and not recording them. I talked to my trainer today, after working off my ..... and she said it is not uncommon to get to this point, and just to think of the end goal. I am in the size of clothes that was my goal for Sept. I just have to think that I may end up wearing smaller sizes then expected because of the exercise. Wouldn't that be cool.

Yes! I have pics from our annual Disney Christmas pics so I can see the progression over the last few years. Righ now I have a pair of jeans my sister gave me hanging on my bedroom wall beside my bed. I want fit into them by cruise time!

Hope you enjoyed yourself. This weekend is my birthday, and then of course Mother's Day when my husband takes me out for brunch, so he does not have to cook dinner. I plan to hit the gym both days, and take the dog out for a walk. This should help counter balance any treats.

I hope you had an amazing birthday & mother's day! I still haven't made it back to the gym, I have hurt the tendons in my left foot and the doctor has me staying off of it for a few days. I have been using my hand weights for arm exercises and some ab stuff. I have been eating slighty better this week as well. I was doing so good for months and now I'm just having a REALLY hard time finding my will power again.

Had a great birthday and Mother's day, and was able to control the eating. I spent more time visiting people then exercising, but got back to exercise on Monday. Hope your foot gets better. For 3 months, not one day went by that I missed recording my food, and exercising 6 days a week. Now I kinda sorta record, and exercise more like 4 days a week. It shows, only a pound a week vs. 2 pounds a week. Heading to Halifax on Monday for 4 days. I should be able to get in the exercise, but not sure about the food control.

Well, I'm down 21 pounds! Nutrasystem is going great most days. Today was not a very good day but I did not get fast food like I wanted to! We are doing C25K and I am working out 6 days a week.

The C25K is an excellent concept. I am now working towards 10K. My dream is to run the WDW marathon, but half marathon may be more realistic.

It's really a great program. I am signed up for a 5K the end of next month and after that I am going to work towards an 8K I want to do in September. I would love to do a half marathon by the end of the year and there are two in my area I am looking at. I don't want to sign up just yet though. After the 8K I will take a good look at them and see if they are feasible for me to train for and complete. My only goal for the 5K is to jog the entire thing. I don't care about my time. If I do one of the halfs this year I just plan on finishing it. I probably wont jog the entire thing but as much as I can.

I just saw this thread! What a great idea! So inspiring to read others' successes!

I'm on the July 28th Magic out of NYC, so it's coming up soon! I've been working on weight loss goals since last September, but admittedly I've cheated along the way. Trying to stay strong!

I would like to lose 10 more pounds before the cruise, but I'm not sure how realistic that is. I've been doing Weight Watchers at home (the old points, not the flex points). I've also been going on the treadmill almost every morning for 45-60 minutes. Some days mostly speedwalking; other days walking/jogging.

My goal is to do the Castaway Cay 5K on our cruise. I would love to jog most of it.

Wendy

Just got back from a business trip to Halifax and the food was great. It was rainy and I did not get out for any of my planned 5K runs, but I did get some walks in. I have a feeling that I went up a couple of pounds.

For those of you doing the NYC/Canada cruise, Halifax is a beautiful, friendly city with lots of great food.

I'm at 11 days in on the Insanity workout

It is hard but very good. I do not have a goal weight, I'd just like to lose any mount and get back to exercising 5-6 times per week
Best of luck to all of you, and here's to being happy and healthy
Dee
