Get Fit For Disney!

This group was originally started by some September 2011 travelers, but others are more than welcome.

I was going to say on the other thread that I don't ever use the word diet. It just has such a negative tone to eat. No one likes dieting. All I'm doing is trying to eat healthier and get more active. Like this morning my boys and I went for an hour and a half walk. For lunch I had a salad with romaine lettuce, onions, small cubed cheese, turkey pastrami and light italian dressing. I also had a few tortilla chips with a bunch of salsa and 1 very small cookie with a giant glass of water.

Count me in!

I'm hoping to lose 10-15 lbs. by my September trip. I've already lost 15, but these last ten lbs. are proving the toughest!

I'm here!

I'm keeping my goal small at 15 pounds by August 31st.

A crisp romaine salad actually sounds pretty good right now. I'm trying to enjoy salads more. I'm a vegetarian, but one of the junk food kinds! haha.....

My goal is to lose 20-25 pounds overall, but I don't know if I'll be able to lose that much by September. I'd sure hope that I can lose at least 15 by then!

I would like to join you for sure. I am sick right now, so can't work out, but hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon and I'll be able to get out (and up!). I'm reading a really good book from the library right now called Superfoods Lifestyle that is educating me on really great foods to choose. What are some of you doing to reach your goals?

What's everyone's favorite go-to healthy meal?

Mine is PBJ (w/ strawberry jelly). I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I often do and I'm having one right now!

Bread for whole wheat or whole grain benefits, the PB for protein and it keeps you feeling full, the jelly for a kick of sweetness to satisfy that sweet tooth. Perfect!

I'd also like for everyone to put there top favorite healthy snacks here. I'm thinking of updating the first post with our favorite snacks and other tips we discuss here.

I generally try to watch portion control. I like eating pre-packaged tv dinners or yogurt cups, things where I can say, "This is breakfast, and no more..." Limiting snacking throughout the day. Things like that. Rocket science, right?

No more baked goods beside bread (this is really hard for me because I love to bake, esp. cakes!), smaller portions, and exercising for at least half an hour every day but Sunday. I'm a vegetarian, and I've been trying to avoid those vegetarian junk meals like mac and cheese.

Pre-made veggie stew or do you make it? What's in it?

I'm in.
I currently follow a whole food, plant based, starch centered, no added fat food plan. I have lost 22 pounds, would like to loose another 5-10lbs by our September trip. Before we go Dh and I get up to a 3 mile walk every day.

Favorite snacks: Fruit any kind and veggies.

The veggie stew I make has leeks, potatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, and carrots. It doesn't sound like much, but once it all simmers together it's tasty! I'll post the recipe when I get home tonight if anyone's interested.
