Just made a bet with DW......

Evening all!

DW doesn't think I can lose weight before our trip in october. Specifically, i have a little bit of a belly, and while it's not massive it's enough to make me self-conscious, so I want rid of it! Happy with the rest of me, just not the stomach!

So, she said those immortal words "i bet you won't lose it....." so i asked what we should bet so i have incentive, and after much thought we've settled on our discovery cove tickets - appropriate since it requires being less clothed than any other day - the loser pays for both of us

Wish me luck! She's goin' down.........

Oh good for you! Nothing like a Florida based incentive to seal the deal, lol. With those tickets on the table, she'd better start to budget!

You have your first supporter

Thank you!!! I also have support so far from our villa owner and also Laura, not sure what her username is on here (she's on my facebook list from here, we've become good cyberbuddies) but it's appreciated!

Another supporter here!! I'm in the same boat, albeit I only have 7 weeks to lose my padding that I've been slowly acquiring since Christmas and during revision!!

And there's nothing like being forced to wear a wetsuit to spur you on - I'm with you on this one!

I've been using the My Fitness Pal app on my iPhone - it's a great way to document calories and exercise! You can use it through a web browser too. Definitely keeps me on track - I recommend

Good luck, and keep us up to date

Good for you.

Another vote for my fitness pal, too. It's really great for keeping track of what you're eating and how much you're excercising.

I can't wait to start losing some weight once the baby's born!

Another supporter here

I put a fair bit on when pregnant and then subsequently put more on when I was stuck in hospital for the 2 weeks afterwards - I blame the hospital food! It was so horrid I was forced to make relatives bring treats from M&S for me lol!

I've got a bit more to lose before our Sept trip so going to start using My fitness pal after my trip to Centre Parcs Fri

I'm joining the supporter train!

I've got loads of time until I leave for holiday (31st October) but I'm starting to watch what I'm doing and eating.

I was on another thread here about weightloss to Disney, and I mentioned about looking at the Paleo lifestye. I did a paleo 30 day challenge where I ate whole foods, good quality animal proteins and avoided grains, diary, wheats and processed sugars. The result was that I lost a lot of body fat and build lean muscle. I also got a super flat tummy, so if its a wee tummy that you are trying to get rid off, consider looking at the number of grains/wheat and diary products you consume as these are known to cause intestinal bloating and many people are allergic to them without even knowing.

YOu might be able to loose the tummy without even trying

Rise to the challenge then! My husband and I started eating healthy on the 1st January .... I've gone from 10 stone 5 to 8 stone 11 1/2 and hubby's gone from 14 odd stone to just under 12 1/2 ...... No magic tricks, no expensive plans, just eating clean, unprocessed healthy foods and steering away from potatoes and bread. Top tip I can give you is to download the app myfitnesspal and count your calories ...,, best of all its free! Good luck mate,you CAN do it!

Wow loads of support, thank you all!

I'm not calorie counting or doing a specific diet, just making small step changes to my diet and upping the exercise level to gently burn off the extra, that way it will stay off easier and pretty much eliminates the dreaded yo-yo effect.

One of our friends commented she always puts weight on at WDW but i've only ever lost it, but then staying in a villa we do eat in a lot so our meals are more controlled, and we tend to take lunches with us most days to both save money and control our intake a bit.

Good Luck

Do lots of 'practise' walking for Disney - that really helped me last year I lost 3 stone, I'm not a gym person. Unfortunately I've put nearly a stone back on - blaming 3 weeks at Disney & Christmas

I'm starting again though once the clocks change (& get the OK after medical procedure booked for end of March).

Definately agree with the cut out bread part & count calories- that always helps me.
