To note, today ive been really healthy so far choosing fruit over chocolate/crisps for snacks. Its difficult BUT I keep telling myself that feeling good will feel better than any amount of chocolate.

While I'm not that optimistic about getting back into one for our next trip at the start of September, I would like to feel reasonably confident in my togs..I weigh on a Saturday so fingers crossed.

It's really nice to read all the encouraging comments, and great to have people who understand what you're trying to do..good luck everyone!

I'm trying to get thinner for Disney. I'm a size 20 and worried I won't fit on the rides I fitted in at Alton towers last year, but not sure what disney is like. I aim to drop 1-2 dress sizes by my trip. I'm using 'my fitness pal' calorie counter app and attending Zumba and walking my friends dog.

Welcome Jazzy!

Hope you loose the weight you're aiming for before your trip and beyond! I will say though, you will fit in the rides, believe me and esp if you loose two dress sizes that you're aiming for. There's many, many Americans who are very overweight, so the rides are adapted for bigger riders, both at Disney & Universal.

Saying that, let that not put you off, I'm sure you'd still be focused about loosing the weight, even if the rides weren't a factor! I'm using My Fitness Pal also, as my brother has had great success with it and is now 45lb lighter since last May! Feel free to add me, my username is Rach066, always happy to have Dis friends along for the ride

Hi Jazzy

I'm also on my fitness pal - stitch39

Don't worry I was a size 22 last time we went to Disney and I had not problem fitting into the rides, saying that I certainly would have felt happier a few sizes smaller that is why I'm using MFP and aim to loose before Disney next year

Good luck and feel free to add me, as It's been said there are a few of us from the DIS on there :smile:

You'll have no problems fitting on rides. I was a similar size a few years ago and had no problems. My motivation for losing weight then was that I'd found the flight quite uncomfortable. The seats were a little snug. The next time I went back I was a size 16 and I noticed a massive difference.

Good luck xx

Can you use my fitness pal for just tracking weight loss? I used to use it but can't really remember how it works now! Would like to join the fitness pal community but I'm doing ww so tracking in a book.
Yesterday I found out my mum who I literally do everything with went and joined one of those motivation weight clinics with out telling me (shes only 7lbs over weight) and I felt so upset and left out as we normally do ww together. I really can't afford the clinic thing it as I'm paying for our holiday! Anyway would love the extra sense of community on my fitness pal if its not a necessity to track all foods?? But to track your weight loss?

Bee86 if course you can just add your weight loss in a nice graph which is great as it can show your losses got up to 3 months at a time, good luck .

Hi

Hello all
My DW and me started a change in diet in june last year to try and loose weight and am happy to say it has been a huge success so far.
We started eating low carb.
http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf

I understand its not the easiest thing to do and it meant a complete change of what and how we eat , and it's not for everyone .
But am so pleased with the results that i just wanted to share with all you..

We are now soo looking forward to our May holiday and will be bugging the photopass photographers at every oppertunity..

Good luck to all you starting and congrats to all keeping up with whatever weight loss program works for you


Edit : 3 stone/42 pounds lost so far :-)
