We will no doubt do a WISH meet at the Princess as well as meeting before and after the race at the W tent. Also, some of us will be scream teaming for the 10k that week-end.

If you ever wanted a WISH shirt or other WISH gear there is an order just starting that will close on October 15th so check it out if you are interested!
I am so looking forward to not only the meet but the have a big cheering section for the 10K, I don't know if the family will be up that early. LOL

I hope people will still be at the W tent when I get there. I'm probably going to need the whole time alloted to finish.

Where do I look for the shirt thread?

I"m here!! Don't start the party without me!! JK.... just jumping in to save myself a spot for October!!

Lisa, I'll admit here that the thought of running the numbers as a hostess has me a bit ill, so I am NOT jumping in to hostess an upcoming month... and that makes me feel badly, but I'd rather not set myself up for stress. I know, I know... it really isn't hard... but it made me crazy when I did it before. I am JUST NOT a numbers person!! But I'll coach any time it is needed!!

Looking forward to a FABULOUS October with you all!!..............P

Hi everyone! I am joining for October again. Seems like I had a decent enough September and hope to get the same result for October!

Lisa, I can take on December. I am moving house in November, so not sure whether I won't have a disruption of internet services. But by December that should be ok again. And hopefully hosting will help me stay on track through the dangerous holiday season! Even though I am afraid I am going to set myself up for a month of not a lot activity again like with the summer months... It will be fun anyway!

Yes, just to a nicer place! My current flat is perfectly fine, but some drawbacks. The new place will have a guest bedroom, a fireplace and is in a wonderfully renovated house from 1920 in one of the nicest neighbourhoods. Very happy about the change!

Count me in for October! With the season of sweets fast approaching, I need to keep on track. My goal is getting closer, with some hard work maybe I can hit it by Halloween (fingers crossed!).

Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA ... a lot going on over for sure. BUT we have set a date for our wedding and have begun reserving venues, I even found my gown. SO I am back! I have been working hard this month, and was successful the first 2 weeks in losing some of the weight I had gained back. Just trying really hard to get down one size before I finish paying off my gown and put in the final order! is running out! Anyway, hope I can reserve a space here for Oct I'd also like to host next month Help keep me on track!

I'm in for October! I'm staying on in the loser camp, as I really want to get back to my official WW goal. As of Friday I was back in the WW maintenance range, but I haven't seen that goal number in a few months, so I'm setting my sights on it this month. And I suspect I might have nudged a bit above the maintenance range after a weekend away with my sister... Here goes!

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Will PM my starting weight and goal tomorrow morning.
Thank you so much for volunteering to hostess in March! And thanks for hostessing in September.

The Princess still has a lot of WISHers but not quite the size of the January meets -- if by "big cheering section" you mean a few of us somewhere you'll have it made. And don't worry about people hanging around late because there are a lot of us who will be using up the whole time and you are fine.

The person who is organizing the shirt sale apparently has a big exam today so I imagine the post will be up later today or tomorrow.

Pamela! No worries on the hostessing -- it isn't fun for the hostess if they are stressed out for sure. I would be happy to be your weightkeeper any month that you want to hostess -- then you wouldn't have to worry about the number part. We know we can always count on you to help us keep the conversation going. It takes a village to run a successful challenge.

Thanks for volunteering to hostess in December, Magdalene! Your new place sounds wonderful - it will be a big job moving but then you will be ready to celebrate the holidays in your new home!

Thanks, Amanda, for hostessing in November! Sounds like busy times for you but a wedding gown is a good motivator for sure.

Excited to try this out for the first time!
I have a small goal, but have been unsuccessful in achieving it! Hoping this helps out!

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to coach this challenge and helped to fill in the hosting schedule for the coming months -- you guys rock!

I'm looking forward to all your PMs with your starting weight and goals. It is helpful for me if your subject line looks something like this "Weigh in 10/1/13 145 goal 5" and after that in your weekly PMs you can send the date and the number.

As we make our transition from Spectacular September to Outstanding October I will post a QOTD for the next couple of days.

QOTD Monday, September 30, 2013 and Tuesday, October 1, 2013: Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about your goals for the challenge and the rest of the year. You don't have to share numbers, it can be general.

I am Lisa and I will be your hostess this month and coach for the next few days. I've been doing the BL, and now WATP, challenges since 2009. I'm 53, married and have a sometimes cranky teen son. I will reach my goal weight sometime next year. It's taken me longer than I thought it would to get there but each and every challenge, year after year, I end up weighing less than I started. Thanks to several WISHers who inspired me I started running when I was 49. I ran my fifth half marathon in May and will be doing the Princess Half Marathon in February with all but one of my special group of friends who got me into this running thing in the first place. I've made lifelong friends and been to WISH meets at both Disneyland and DisneyWorld. I've done things that I never dreamed possible because of these challenges and WISH who gave me the courage to start.

My goal for this challenge and every month for the rest of the year is five pounds a month which doesn't sound like much but would be an excellent finish to a very good year.

Hi, Lisa! I am in for October and just PM'ed you my starting weight and goal.

Hi, everyone! I am Cam. I have been a WISHer since early 2005 right after my 4th heart surgery (which cured me of a potentially fatal condition that I'd suffered nearly 10 years). Once I got the clearance from my cardiology team, I started doing Walk Away the Pounds to lose weight and started training for my first-ever Half-Marathon, which was in January 2006 exactly a year and one day after that surgery. Since that time, I've done 2 full marathons, more than 10 half-marathons and other races of varying distances including more than 40 5Ks. I did a 5k yesterday and have the following races in my near future:
10/13 -1/2 marathon
11/9 - 1/2 marathon
11/28 - 5k
1/10 - 10K
1/11 - 1/2 marathon
2/23 - 1/2 marathon

I have done weight watchers off and on over the years, and have managed to keep off more than half of the 70 pounds I lost in 2005 and 2006, but a lot have crept back on. It is time to really crack down and move toward my ultimate weight loss goal and lifetime WW membership. My DH, Howard, and I are doing a 12 night Mediterranean Disney cruise next summer, and I know I will be much happier and will enjoy all the touring more if I can take off some considerable amount of weight.

I am happy to share this journey with all of you. I love seeing some familiar names and faces here!

Hi Lisa , thanks for hosting this month.. I am in with a 3 lb goal I fell a bit short of that goal in Sept but I'll just keep plugging along..

I am trying to following the Atkins plan due to having type 2 diabetes and having to give myself a shot for about 12 weeks - it was horrid so in Feb of 2013 I decided enough! during the first 12 or so weeks I'd lost 26 lbs but have slowly gained about half back so I am now on week 3 again but still struggle with the weekends - I want pizza and chinese and chips , so I am slowing figuring out some low carb almost taste like the same things. Haa.. I am soon to be (10/10) 43, I have been married to the Hubs for almost (11/30) 5 years who is almost 31 (11/23) and I have a DD who is turning 20 (11/18) and DS who is turning 17 (10/3) so as you can see I have alot of challenges coming up 4 birthdays, Thanksgiving and an anniversary..

I love the motivation and support all you ladies provide here.. Thanks ..
