i officially started my diet today. I will be SO depressed if I'm this weight on my trip. I lost a good amount of weight after seeing the pics from our first family WDW trip 2 years ago (I don't know do scales so best guesstimate -- 25-30 lbs.). I got down to about a couple lbs. away from squeezing into a 6. Last April when I went back with just ODS and my sister...... I went thru my closet and gave her ALL of my fat clothes for the trip, and bought myself an entirely new wardrobe. Now I've gained most of the weight back. I SWORE on this next trip I was going to get into some pics because I'm one of those people who never gets in pics because i'm always taking them....plus I hate how I look, so I sprung for PPP for this trip and everything. At this point I won't get in any of the pics. If I have to go out and buy all new fat clothes for this trip, I think it will really push me over the edge. It will put a damper on my whole trip. (life, actually )
Anyways, I lose best with low carb, so I had 2 HB eggs and a half a banana this a.m..... and I am already flipping RAVENOUS and it's only 10 a.m. It's so hard.

Talking

HE SAID "BOOK IT"!!!! Finally DH has given me the green light to book our April 2013 trip! )Well, I have had POR-Riverside booked for two months now..., as well as Chef Mickeys, Biergarten, and 1900 Park Square) But its finally official!

Amtrak Autrotrain booked 10 minutes ago... almost lost the room price, we got the last 2 at the lower price.

Now to finish my ADRs and surprise plan.

I had to make 2 promises to DH in order for him to agree, we have to surprise the kids, and not tell them until the day we leave, and I had to promise not to make any Tshirts or autograph books, or anything But its ok... we are going to DISNEY!

Off to update my signature!

Just had to share - I'm so excited that it looks like we may get a little bit of Disney Magic in 2014 - of the California variety!!! I convinced DH last night that I would be more motivated to run and get in better shape (which he's always on me about) if I had a really fun event to train for... like the Tinker Bell Half-Marathon at at Disneyland!

He was skeptical at first, reminding me that we have half-marathons here in town all the time. Well DUH! That's not the point. He said, "Oh, you think you need Disney as a reward then. " Yes, exactly

I was at first looking at the Princess HM @ WDW, but trying to get to Florida for a 48-hour trip was going to be very tough, California is much more practical for such a short time. It's a 2-hour flight instead of a 4-hour one, and LOTS more options for direct flights, even from our home airport here in Colorado Springs without having to drive to Denver. Then I realized the one at Disneyland is MLK weekend, so we'll even have an extra day to get back.

Now I just have to get ready to run 13 miles Although I'm sure it will be easier at sea level at least (we live at about 6000 ft). And maybe I won't be quite so depressed when our April trip is over since I'll at least have this little tidbit to look forward to

Oh this sounds just like me. 2 trips ago was sick when I saw in a pic how much I had gained. Lost it, got rid of al mt fat clothes and bought new. Now the new ones are too tight. REFUSE to buy fat clothes again so back to starvation. I blame the DDP for my gain NOT using DDP this trip, paying OOP. Maybe we should start a APRIL WEIGHT LOSS board... sounds like many of us are in the same boat

Food: ADRs are really up to you, but it's not that difficult to plan in one or two. I usually go for lunch reservations which has the combined bonus of being during the hottest part of the day and it's easier to make sure I'm in a particular park at that time. Since you'll have hoppers, it will be just as easy to get to a park in the evening as it would be to get to DTD.
Thank you!

I've been through this enough times; the first few days are just SO hard, I feel like I'm DYING of starvation, lol. I wish you could just take something to knock you out for the first 3 days...kind of like a detox, lol.

I've been saying I'm going to start practically every day for months now but today I MEAN IT!!! (hopefully )

Isn't there weight loss board on the DIS somewhere? We should check it out. Or else I can start a group on FB if there's enough of us interested, so we don't clutter up this thread.
