It's great to hear about everyone's success recently! I too have finally broken past a plateau and have now lost another 5lbs! I am finally for he first time in years in the "normal" bmi range! Still have 3lbs left to reach my cruise goal and 8 - 10lbs to reach my overall goal! It might sound easy, but at this point the lbs seem harder than ever to lose.

I'm down 12 pounds since my first post.... 8 more until my first of 4 twenty pound goals. I have to break it up or the climb will look too steep. I am SO glad to have the support here and to read about your journeys.

I must say, that with each pound... probably each ounce, I feel an emotional pang of sorts. It's like I could map my body and say "this thigh fat here? Is my Mom's stroke. This thigh fat here on the other leg? is rape. My huge gut? losing our son..." and so on. And as sad and Debbie Downer as that sounds... it's huge. It's an amazing gift that this journey has given me: to actually deal with and walk through experiences that I blocked from my heart with food. I haven't just cheated myself from normal sized clothes and good health, but from living the life God gave me... good and bad.

I make no sense at all, do I?

I'm so glad I found this thread. I started WW about a month ago, part for the cruise and part because I'm ready to let go of the stress I've been carrying around. I'm a stress eater. Like CeCe, everytime I look in the mirror I don't just see the weight but all of those issues, betrayals and pain. I feel it all over again. I've decided to take a stand against it and move past. I've lost almost 10 pounds and am feeling stronger already.

We were originally going to be cruising in Feb 2013 but moved up our date to Nov 10. I'm a little worried I'm not going to be at the goal I weight I desired by November. But, I'm trying and keep reminding myself this is about feeling healthier and more energetic for my life and not just for the cruise.

Some really great goals and successes. Only 15 weeks to my next cruise with a goal of 20 lbs. more for a total of 65 lbs. The closer to my ultimate goal the harder it is getting to get to it. As someone else said, breaking it into mini goals helps.

Starting to work on my mini goals for the next 15 weeks. Building a calendar to map everything out including meal planning. I plan to have this all done by Sunday. I have signed up for the Run for the Cure on Sept. 30, and I plan to do another race in October. I decided to join a completion at the gym "Mission thin Possible". This will help with the motivation and includes weigh in, measurements and weekly motivations classes. And of course seeing my personal training twice week. Wow, if I really work at it, I will finally no longer be considered in the over weight category for my next cruise. I think this planning will also help build the excitement for the cruise.

Well I have self sabotaged again and went back up 1.5lbs. Everytime I finally drop I will then let myself eat too much junkfood for a week. Oh well, today is a new day and back to being healthy! I am starting with an apple & water for breakfast.

Hi

I have been lurking for a few days and decided to introduce myself. I am working on loosing some weight before my Thanksgiving cruise this November. I started about six days ago and so far I am down 5 lbs. Probably mostly water weight, but it makes me feel encouraged none the less. I am doing 1200 calories a day and exercise of some sort (bike riding, walking, etc.) every day. After reading about myfitnesspal here I checked it out and love it. My daughter saw me using it and she has started using it too.

Been there, done that. I hope you have more than an apple for breakfast. I believe my success has been partially due to eating a good breakfast. Recently, I switched to a higher protein breakie - two fried egg whites with cinnamon and a tablespoon of almond butter. This is from a person who was never big on protein. Now, I have protein in every meal. It helps to reduce the snacking.

Interesting that everyone is talking about sabotaging. The topic at tonight's class at the gym is about sabotaging. Hopefully my calendar and joining this competition will help me from falling into the sabotage pit.

Thanks to everyone for joining this discussion group. You are all my motivators.

My dh lost 50lbs in 4 months with take shape for life. It worked so well for him that I joined the program and became a certified health coach, like a cheerleader and advisor, to help him reach his goal.
My dh inspired me to get healthier and I lost 8lbs in 2 weeks..which doesn't seem like a lot but to me it was a lot!

Good luck everyone! And I'm so glad to everyone working towards their goal!!!
