Welcome, welcome! I think I just added you to the fb page. You will LOVE it! It's always awesome celebrating special events with Disney, so you'll have a very memorable anniversary and birthday. Be sure to take some time to peruse this thread for some great info and to get to know everyone. You'll find that DISers are very knowledgeable and helpful, so feel free to ask any questions. If the folks here can't help, you can go over to the main forum and try your luck there. Cruising with Disney is truly magical, so it's a great place to have your first experience!

Losing it!

I am also going to post on the other message board, but curious if anyone else is working on getting in shape and/or losing weight for our cruise? I am starting today with the thought that I can dig deep before Thanksgiving, then enjoy myself over the Holidays. I know it might seem early but then if I don't do as well as I want to, I have a cushion (pun intended) of time with which to work. Feel free to hold me accountable, my sis and I are starting today!

Maybe our girls can hang out.
Like you, we have dinner together as mandatory (Even at home)!

DD14 will like the freedom, but she (shockingly) loves family time, except when we are being "embarrassing" or "ruining her life", LOL! She may spend a good portion of at-sea time reading in the cabin, unless she can find more extroverted friends on the ship! Is your daughter an extrovert by any chance?

The (fraternal) DD10 twins on the other hand would rip the ship apart with their boisterous energy...

I am...I had lost a good deal of weight before our panama canal cruise, and that made the more challenging excursions much more enjoyable, plus I wasn't mistaken for beached marine life nearly as much as previously...

However I've gained nearly half of it back, and I really want to get back down again. June makes a very nice target!

I always try to get down a few extra pounds before leaving on a big splash vacation, so I have some room to splurge. I also love to workout, so I enjoy visiting the fitness center onboard. They're generally some of the nicest workout facilities you're ever going to have the opportunity to use. On my last cruise (on NCL) I was on the elliptical in front of the windows, and my neighbor tapped me on the shoulder, pointed out to sea, and said, "Look!" Sure enough, there was a dolphin leaping across the waves. Can't really beat that!

On our last DCL cruise, DH, who works for USA Today, came up with a great story about how to enjoy a cruise without gaining weight. I'll have to see if I can scan and post the story as it's no longer available online.

We can do it! I lost weight last year also and recently gained a lot of it back and I want to get back to that more care free feeling, not having to worry about if my clothes will fit or not...Stick with it!

I started yesterday - lol!! Got back on the exercise bike. It has been on my mind a lot! Still plenty of time to lose before the cruise!
