Talking Getting Skisney for Disney May 2013 PTR 4/11: Day 1 Plan

Hello, you wonderful Dis-ers!! I am so glad to be back and planning a Disney trip for this year. We tried something else last summer and nothing quite measures up to a trip to WDW, does it? My DD turns 10 this year so we want to fit in a trip before she becomes a Disney adult. We have nothing set in stone yet and I am a little overwhelmed about visiting since our last trip in May 2011.

In the process of not going to Disney and not having anything to obsess over, I have gained a few pounds. If there's anytime I gladly pose for pics, it's in Disney and I refuse to be embarassed or hesitant about those pics because of a few pounds. Our Disney dates are tentatively set for May 18 which gives about 129 days (or 18.5 weeks) to lose some weight before our trip. Ideally, I would lose 2 lbs a week (or 37 lbs) by the time we left and if I did that, not only would I look good in pics, I would need a new wardrobe. But I'm aiming for at least 24, which would put me at my Disney lowest. So feel free to join me as I plan my trip and try to get back to the slim young thing I once was. I won't be posting my actual weight on here, but on Fridays, I'll post an official amount lost and an assessment of how I did that week along with my Disney planning. Seriously, planning the trip for me is as fun as actually going.

So, here we go again.......Yipppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

I am hoping to lose 8-10 before our trip (in ten weeks). I need to lose more than that, but that's my "hope" before the trip! Can't wait to see your plan! Have a fabulous Friday!!

I'm in. I would love to shed 26 pounds to goal weight. (I would love to be 10 under goal weight, so I can eat what I want and not worry about if I gain!) We are going end of August, so I am looking forward to see what your plan is. I am always the picture taker and it has worked in the past because I didn't really want my picture taken. Now that the kids are getting older, I want more pictures of me with them.

How It's Gonna Happen

Well, I've been through this weight loss thing before and what has worked for me consistently is calorie counting. So I'm going to try to keep my calories to 1200-1500 a day. Exercise is going to be hard since it's winter (and very rainy here in the Deep South) but I have a plan. I'm really competitive, so I'm going to make it my goal to get the highest score on ALL our Just Dance games on the Wii, especially our Just Dance Disney. Talk about getting in the mood for Disney!!! It has Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boo and Supercalifrajilisticexpealidocious on it. Those old Disney movies are just so full of magic for me...

I weighed myself yesterday and somehow, I am UP 2 lbs. What a way to start!!
On a motivation note, I saw a picture of myself on FB and I am so pumped at the prospect of looking like THAT again. If you want to see what I looked like for my first trip to Disney (senior trip in HS), check out my first PTR:

Every few days, I want to post how I'm doing on my diet and exercise and on Fridays an official weigh-in. I will NOT be posting my actual weight...we'll call my weight "T". So as of today, I'm at T+2lbs

If you're losing weight for Disney or just trying to lose weight period, please feel free to join me. I'll be glad to cheer you on!!

Up next, I'm working on my WDW plans. We're doing things a little differently than we have in the past as far as booking but be assured that no matter how much weight I lose, I plan on indulging at Disney!!

We are also going in May (5-11th) and I have let myself go. I know I can't expect to be model thin by the time we leave but I would be very happy to shed 20 pounds (or more!) before our trip. I have started counting calories, and have been upping my exercise. I have found the my fitness pal website and I Phone Ap a great help and I am already down 8.2 pounds since December 30th. I would love to join you guys!

Love your plan!! It sounds like what I need to be doing as well--except adding in treadmill, since I don't have Just Dance. The Just Dance Disney would definitely keep me motivated!

Last week was our first week back to work from Christmas Break for me. It was crazy-stressful! I am a stress-eater, so I ate like it was no one's business. Thankfully, I didn't gain, but I sure didn't lose either. We are at 9 1/2 weeks out, so I need to be getting to it!

Today, I made it back to my treadmill. The eating-monitoring will start tomorrow. It's easier for me to eat right when I'm at work (because I'm limited to my stuff). I am going to weigh in tomorrow, so I'll know what my "T" is, and then my weigh-ins will be on Thursday. Thursdays are my favorite days, so maybe that'll keep me motivated!

I can't wait to read about your WDW plans! I have a PTR in my siggie with our plans in it, too! So much fun to plan! Good luck this week with calorie tracking and weight!!

Exactly!! I've discovered the further I get away from taking a picture, the happier I am that I took it with them, no matter how I looked. And a major motivator for me is so I can eat what I want in Disney.

Welcome!! I am definitely interested in cool apps. I don't have a smart phone but I have found sparkpeople to be a great tool. One thing about going in May is that there is a chance you'll end up in a swimsuit at some point. I may try my fitnesspal on my Kindle.

Way to go on your treadmilling. You should be ready for that walking at Disney. I started reading your PTR...I have a son about your son's age.

We are going in June and I would like to lose some weight also. I work out at Curves 3-4 times a week. I do ok during the week since we stay so busy but the weekends are the worst. I tend to snack all day and we eat out a good bit on the weekends. Just Dance Disney sounds like something I need to look into.

Ok, I weighed in today, so I know what my "T" is too. I'm home with my sick DS today, so I am filling my Disney fix!

Hey! I'm joining in! I very much recommend MyFitnessPal. It's a phone app as well as a website. I have also gone through a journey. Lost 62 pounds then gained some weight back after the wedding, lol. Now, I'm back on the wagon! MyFitnessPal is great for calorie counting and exercising! Feel free to add me as a friend on there (ctinaditty).

I'll be rooting you on!

Oh my holy oats! Let's be friends!!! We are heading down the same day (5/18) and I have exactly 35 pounds I am trying to get rid of. We will be celebrating our (2 year) anniversary and DS 8 and DD 7's birthdays. So.... I am excited to go go go! I have already gotten off to a good start starting last week I worked out at the Y with Zumba and kickboxing and kept up with my calories. (I weigh in Frday but I sneaked a peek this morning and I am already down 2 though it is. Surely water weight )

Best of luck! Keep us posted.
