Anyone know whether Disney will make a place available to zumba on board for an hour? One of the adult areas during the morning would be easy, right? Any idea who to contact? Anyone have any experience with this kind of request?

I will be on the Fantasy new years eve cruise of 2013 and hate to not do it for a week. And if I find a place to do it, anyone would be welcome to join me....

The December 29 sailing? I'm on that cruise and I love zumba! I usually go to 3 classes a week. If you can find a place, I'll work out with you!

Hello fellow lose before we cruise people.

I have about 40 - 45 pds to lose and would like to actually lose it all well before I cruise since I am doing the Goofy marathon in disney in January. Lots of work to do.

We are going on vacation starting tomorrow and I have been trying very hard to eat right these couple of weeks leading up to it. I have been successful and lost another 2lbs! Hopefully I won't gain it back these next few days! 8 -10 lbs. more to go before the cruise in November!

Very cool. I am only working on my first two songs' choreography now, but hope to have time to do more over the summer and be ready for leading classes when the kids go back to school in September.

Yes, the Fantasy for the New Years Eve 2013 (I know, 19 months, and counting)

Medifast

Ok, so I have tried WW, Nutrisystem, counting calories, LA Weight Loss, working with a trainer (lost 50 lbs 2 yrs ago this way), etc etc etc and now I am trying Medifast. So far in 3 wks I have lost about 6 lbs. Yes I have cheated here and there, but not too badly. No binges, etc.

I have given so much thought to my weight loss challenges and I have discovered I need two things for success

support/reinforcement and

not too many choices in food.

If I throw in a healthy dose of "I am important too and need to make taking care of myself a higher priority in this family" then I have much better success.

Why do I need these things? We spend almost every weekend with my in laws at the beach house we share...every day, everyone else eats donuts for breakfast, pizza for lunch, ice cream for snacks and sometimes dessert too. Junk for dinner. I am always being offered "just one cookie, a taste won't hurt, have a scoop, it's just a scoop, etc etc etc..." AAAAACK! So here I am, begging for support.

My ultimate goal to be in heaven would be to lose 50 lbs. My realistic goal is 30 to 35 from now.

Medifast is not bad. 4 or 5 soy protein based supplements per day plus one big or two smaller "lean and green" meals. Some of the supplements are quite tasty and I have not been hungry. But the weekly weigh in and brief counseling session help.

Anyone else trying Medifast?

My DH did it for a while but it just doesn't work for him now. He is not very successful at diets because he does not add in the fresh foods he is supposed to. He still thinks the less calories he intakes the better but he works out at least 4 days a week and he needs more than 1000 calories a day.

I am doing Nutrasystem and I talked him in to signing up. He is doing ok so far and I keep the house stocked with foods he can have. You are supposed to add in two servings of carbs a day and he refuses. He has talked to nutritionists and read so many books on weight loss but he just wont listen.

I have lost 2 more pounds. 7.7 lost so far on NS in 5 weeks. Over 24 lost for this year. I am working out a lot and participating in a few things on the W.I.S.H. board. Exactly 8 months until I cruise!!

This was the first time I ran without a break. today was not so good, more of a walk then a run.
Had to go back to see my comment from the beginning of May to see how I am doing.

The good news is that I ran 5K in 40 minutes and 30 seconds today.

The bad news is I have plateaued this month. I have not been tracking my food daily or going to the gym as often as I was up to the end of March.

I need a goal. The goal of losing weight before I went on the Fantasy was perfect. It really motivated me. So my goal will be - as soon as I lose 16 lbs. I will treat myself to the spa. I will strive to have this done by the end of July. I will meet this goal by tracking my food and not cheating (no more snacking at work) in my tracking and going to the gym 6 days a week. No more waiting Saturday and Sunday's for my DH to say he is ready to join me because it always ends up that I do not go. I will check in at the end of June on my progress.

I know I said I would check in at the end of the month, but I am pleased to say that I have broken my 5 week plateau. I lost 2.8 lbs. this week. I am on my way to my mini July 31 goal. It may be a little optimistic, but I am going for it. I need to lose 2 lbs. / week and I will still be short by a pound. I now have a longer term goal to meet. Just booked the East Bound Panana Canal. I expect to be 65 ilbs lighter than December 2012, and I have already lost 37 lbs. Only 28 lbs to go! I know the hard weight to lose.

I'm now down 31 pounds! All my old dresses fit me and I am so exited. We just booked a trip to Vegas in 6 weeks and I am hoping to be down about 10 more pounds by then. I have been losing about a pound and a half a week. I was doing Nutrasystem and I am still using the food but I have started counting calories. Keeping myself at 1100-1300 a day I started to be more consistent in my weight loss. I also finished C25K, I'm running three times a week, I get other cardio at least twice a week and have started strength training.
