Day 4 with me on phase 1 of south beach and it's getting much easier. The challenge will be the holiday parties I have this weekend.

I have to share , I am down 4 lbs already! I know it is probably water weight and I shoudn't get too excited but I seriously have been trying to lose weight for 10 years now and to see the scale finally moving in a downwards directions is a new thing for me!

Well done!! I think an upcoming cruise is motivation for a lot of us to drop a few pounds.
I decided a few weeks ago to ditch my scale as I was starting to obsess with it. So now Im just using my clothes as a guage. I can only report I went from a US12 to a US10 since mid October. Would like to see an 8 but not counting on it! Planning on coming home from the cruise a 14!

I'm joining the bunch! We cruise Oct 8, 2011 and get married October 1st.

That's a little more than a year and a half to go.

I've lost 35 pounds so far doing Jillian Michael's Master your Metabolism. She kicks butt!

I have another 70 to go. As Hgon76 said, it is a way of life...a mindset change. Exercise needs to be a regular consistent part of your week now.

It is really simple, it is calories in, calories out. In order to lose a pound, you need to save 3500 calories over 7 days. That can be done by burning it off with exercise, cutting calories or a combination of both. I aim for 2 lbs a week, so that is 500 cal a day I need to eat less of (my target is about 1400) and I need to burn 500 exercising. That is the constant for me. If I eat more, I need to move more.

I am using what they use on the Biggest Loser. It is a computer thing called the Body Bugg. It straps on your arm and monitors all day long your calorie consumption and calorie burn and lets you know where you are at with your targets. So if I haven't met my noon target for exercise, I can get up from my desk and walk a bit around the office.

And I joined with a friend so we keep each other in check. I have also started doing the Wii Fit plus and I think that's the key to any weight loss program -combining diet and exercise. I would like to be 40 lb less when I cruise at the end of May.
Thanks for the information sinnika, Jenny Craig looks great & sounds like it might be for me! The counselor keeping you motivated is what I need :-)

MY DW & I wanted to loose weight for our cruise back in Nov. We started back in last week of March '09. We set our mind to do this for us! We joined a local gym then got a trainer to get us on the right path. After 7 months I lost 65 lbs going from 248 to 183, while the wife went from 278 to 203 loosing 75Lbs. This was done buy eating right, not startving but reducing the calorie intake to 1300-1500, and hiting hte gym 6 days a week.

We have never felt better, even though I gain 10lbs back after our 12 day trip. I have lost all the weight gain and put muscle on. DW gained only 5lbs she has lost that and another 10lbs.

Set your goal and stick to eat, don't play with diets. Reduce your junk intake and eat helathy. I am a very picky eater and still found ways to do this.

Lots of grilled chickem wheat breads, apple sauce, steak, these are some of the things we ate. Never felt like I was starving or anything! Lots of good snacks as well.

I had my 4 week measurements with Jenny Craig. In addition to losing 8.6 lb, I lost 16 1/2 inches!!!! I'm doing 30 to 40 min on the Wii Fit plus every day! I'm feeling great too! At this rate, I'll reach my goal by our May cruise!

Okay, we have talked about it and think we will actually move you to the Cruise Meets Board. While you are not a traditional meet, you do exhibit alot of the traffic like a meets thread.

We feel that staying here at the Cruise Boards will also help you attract the membership which is most looking to Lose before (and maybe not gain on) thier Cruise.

Good Luck Everyone. I too will be stopping by once the Holidays are over. I know better than to start now, I am only setting myself up for failure.
