Oreos are my favorite, or anything similar! Lol! That neat that the profits go to charity.

Joining in! I am at the final lbs of my weight loss/lifestyle change. However, these are the hardest, its summer, and man ice cream is so good!! I started my weightloss journey last year in October and have lost 48lbs. I haven't been working out as much lately - some things have changed in my life that just have killed that motivation. : So heres to hoping this will help!! I started out at 200lbs with a goal of 150 - I am know in the 142-144 range with a 2nd goal of 140. I want to look good in the bikini I bought. I have have spent my entire life overweight - and it has hurt my self esteem. In October I started with a treadmill, then I added in the weight portions of P90X, I have switched to a primarily vegetarian diet. My weekly goal is 3 days of weights from P90X and 5 days of 3 miles on the treadmill at a 10% incline with speed ranging from 4mp-6mph........

Thanks I can't believe at one point in my life I weight 90lbs+ more than I am right now. I've been losing weight in increments since 2004 but this is by far my greatest success! I hope everyone on here keeps trying and doesn't give up. Sometimes it's so daunting but the fact I know I am so much healthier for my two little girls makes everything worth it!

As long as we keep trying we are all doing a great job!!

I am sitting here reading all of your posts and it is getting me motivated to get up and go! I have a very bad knee due to a sports injury! but riding a bike causes no problem at all. I am going to sign out, get on my bike, and ride for an hour.

Now I have to get control of my bad eating habits. I travel a lot so that may not be easy to do.

Okay, I'm obsessed with daily weighing. It has it's pros and cons but it's who I am, can't help it :-). I 'm not budging from the 3 lbs. lost days ago. It's very frustrating. So...today I'm doubling my efforts to eat lighter and exercise more. Hope to report a new lb. lost on Tuesday. Cool to have so many participants. Anyone know the current total?

Me, Me...I want to join in. We are going to WDW for my oldest daughter's 21st birthday in October so that's a great time to set a goal. I have watched my weight creep up a little more each year. I think I probably weigh more than I ever have (including pregnancy).

I think I'll set my goals at 10 pound increments as I know I'm easily discouraged. So Goal #1 - 10 pounds!

I've downloaded MyFitnessPal on my phone so I can keep up with what I eat and my weight. I'm not eliminating but I'm seriously cutting down carbs and sweets and watching my calorie intake very closely. I've done this for 4 days now.

Haven't weighed in yet or started exercising. I planned to start both tonight so how great that I found this thread and can have a group to hold me accountable. I'm going to start with the Wii Fit for a week or two to build up a little stamina because I'm in REALLY bad shape, and then add in one of my workout videos that I enjoy and know shows results. I've acquired several over the years and not stuck with them.

Well today was my weigh in day and I'm stuck at 8.5 lbs. It's been 5 weeks. I really wanted to hit 10 lbs this week (i was at 8.5 last week). I know I didn't do nearly enough excercise last week, so I guess that needs to be my focus this week. My biggest issue is time. I'm a stay at home mom, so I can really only excercise when my 2.5 yr old is napping, but that's also when I'm looking for a new job. I have to do my best to split my days so I can fit in both in a week. Today was job hunting, so tomorrow excercise

So how will everyone eat at WDW? I have SO MANY favorite restaurants and foods!!! I know I will eat very differently than past trips. We will probably skip the dining plan or use credits For DW mostly and I'll share or order a la carte. Except for character buffets 3 are must do..... Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, and Tusker House all have healthy choices. Or do a signature restaurant or 2 which have nicer, healthier choices.

I have a ton of favorites as well! We are doing TH, Biergarten, and T-Rex. We aren't planning on over doing it, but at the same time we're not going to restrict ourselves. Hopefully find a happy balance, after all, it's VACATION between walking and swimming, we should be fine.
