I'm jumping in. I have just signed up for the Princess Half Marathon. I want to lead a healthier life style. I know that if I eat better and exercise I feel much better.

My plan is to:

Cut back on my pepsi consumption. I am a pepsiholic.
Increase my water.
Stop eating when I'm full (I don't diet)
Eat breakfast every day!
Take my vitamins daily
Create and follow a running plan to prepare for the 1/2 marathon in March 2009.

Hey Weesignlanguage!
Good Luck! Check out this site called spark people dot com. You can plug in your food and exercise and your goal for a free plan. I don't work or advertise for them just have been using them for about 3 weeks. It's kind of fun.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Boy I didn't know this board existed... I've been on WeightWatchers for 15 months now - I've lost 69.6 pounds and have .4 more to go to goal

I'm challenging myself to keep the weight off for good this time.
I'm trying to exercise daily and keep a healthy outlook in all aspects of my life.
Your best life isn't necessarily your favorite life or the one you selfishly want. It's simply the life you're best at.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the acqua alta.

I have been hanging out on this board for a week now. I'm 8 days into WW and really need to take off this baby weight I've been carrying around for close to 18 years now. My "baby" is graduating HS in about 20 days and off to college in the fall. He's leaving the nest and so should the pregnancy weight

I've been lurking around here and have decided to join. I will begin to exercise which I haven't done for the past 12 years and look into the meals that I'm eating. I will climb my way to victory baby steps at a time.

Hello, My name is Kathy and I am a FAT WOMAN !!

I am going to join in and with the help of fellow "Dis-ers" Get my weight back on track.

2 kids 22 years of marriage, a c-section, knee and shoulder surgery have greatly added to my life and my waistline.

I am over weight by 100 pounds but otherwise in good health. No high bloodpressure or Diabetes.I have got a stomach muscle that has seperated from where it should be and I have a LUMP that protrudes and is very visable when I do sit up. ( Maybe that explains some of why I can not get that goold old Stomach muscle ache from doing situps or crunches.

I am starting at 251 pounds. There .. I said it.

Hi, I'm Tina & I have posted on this thread once in January & then never again becuase I didn't stick with my diet. Well, I'm Low-Carbing again & have been on for a week & 3 days now. I lost 35 lbs last summer and kept most of it off, but I want to lose some more before our trip in Sept. I started last week at 202 and today I weigh 196! My goal for our Disney trip is 170.

I'm in!

I have a 10 wek old DS who has not only given me his heart, but about 20 extra pounds and some bad habits this pregnancy! He is our second in about 2 1/4 yrs and I had 15 -20 extra leftover from DD! Needless to say, some crappy health has also stuck with the pounds and I'm finally tired of it all! And yes, tired seems to be one of the main issues. I can't blame it all on the baby needing to feed every few hours anymore either, he's ALMOST sleeping through the night! Yay Son! We've been very fortunate with both being pretty good night-time sleepers.

So here's my plan:
* approximately 40 lbs gone by using WW (I bought the "at home" kit with my BF last year about a month prior to getting PG, I am putting it back in the rotation as of last Thursday!). I have a nice formal dress I want to wear to DH's office Holiday party, that's my "hanging/in your face" motivator!!! It's currently approx. 4 sizes smaller than I am by my guestimates!
* better eating habits...kick the chocolate addiction that I decided was okay for this pregnancy...no wonder I had BP issues in the end? Oh and for some reason, I'm sadistically dehydrating myself...not just not getting all my water, but forgetting to drink ANYTHING. Again, no wonder I'm tired!
* as the "Kashi" commericals say... "Get off my Rump". I have videos, exercise balls, and good strollers, I plan to put them in use no less than 3 times a week and work up! I know if I start small, I'll start and continue!!!
* Lastly, DH and I have become weird night owls and are staying up into th ewee hours of the morning. I'm done, back to "normal" and trying to get up to bed after the late news!

So, hopefully I'l be able to update progress on these 4 items and have the kind of success I've been noticing on this board! Congrats to all those who have the GOAL sticker, hold a spot in line for me, would ya?

Thanks for a great place to do my "meetings"!!!

Okay - no more lurking - I am jumping on the bandwagon too!

I want to loose 40 pounds by Christmas and 20 by vacation in September - that means three months for 20 pounds....

My plan - reduced calories - reduced fat - taking Alli - better eating habits - exercising twice weekly - and using the Wii fit on off days

I will loose weight and keep it off this time

I have the Wii Fit too. It is a great workout! Plus, it's a lot of fun and it helps you with balance and posture, not just aerobics and strength training.

i would like to finally jump on the bandwagon too.

throughout all of middle and high school i was that "nice girl that never had a boyfriend because she was just too big".

i have recently (in the last year) moved to orlando to start a job at disney. because of family issues pertaining to deaths and unexpected cancer, i've had to put my disney dreams on hold until september.

because of money problems i had to put college on hold for now as well and at the moment, have no desire to return. however, i have recently done a lot of soul searching and have come to my door that i desperately want to open, and have realized i have waited and longed to open said door all of my life.

i have a crazy...crazy dream that i will give anything in this world to accomplish. i have to weigh between 95-100 pounds and based by my actual body frame, i am supposed to be small. but i want to weigh a healthy 100, and not be a sickly pole.

i have been loosing weight (through change of eating habits, but not to anything strictly "diet" worthy) but its just not coming fast enough. im only 19 and it feels as though "time is running out" and that ive got to get my butt into action before i lose my desire to make my dreams come true forever. it sounds a little Aclass chick-flick, but i really am quite serious.

i havent fully decided on what i can do to help myself. im kind of inbetween a new job right now and there arent any excerise materials in the house. i do however plan on taking 30-60 minute walks and of course watching the carbs and soda. i would really like to take a swimming or aerobic class, but money is a little too tight right now, and i really dont feel comfortable infront of others just yet. but i do have a dancing aerobic/cardiac workout dvd that i am going to start putting to some good use.

heres to hoping that mickey was right when he said "dreams come true".

I would like to join the W.I.S.H. challenge. I am 23 years old and I have hit my rock bottom in my weight. I am 5'3 and I now weigh 199 lbs. I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I weighed 125 lbs before I got pregnant with my now 4 year old DD. I have since fluctuated between 175-195 lbs for the past two years. I am finding myself short of breath after small tasks, and I am not happy with my eating habits. My goal is 145 lbs, and I hope by joining this board, I can achieve that. Here are my plans to lose weight.

Cut out soda completely, even diet
Drink water exclusively
No more fast food!!
Walk/Jog at least 30 mins every day

My mini goal is to lose 5 lbs before my July trip to Disneyland on the 2nd. That's 15 days from today.

Admitting what no one but my doctor knows.

OK, here it goes.

I weighed in yesterday at my endocrinologist's office (where I was getting final approval for my gastric bypass surgery) at an unbelievable 291 pounds. And I'm only 5'2". I'm 44 years old, and I can't even remember not being in pain.

My surgery will probably be in late August. I have a round of testing to do (heart, lungs, gallbladder, upper GI) before the surgeon can reserve a date. I'm scared because I've never had any kind of surgery (other than dental) - or even been in the hospital - before. But I'm resolved and ready to move on with my life.

It's very hard to exercise when even walking is painful. But I'm resolved to lose at least 10 pounds before my surgery.

My WISH is to lose 20lbs before the end of 2008 and another 30lbs in 2009. The thought of having to lose 50lbs has kept me from even starting, so I'm going to break it up like this to keep my goals manageable. If I can lose 3.5lbs per month, by the end of the year I will have reached a major milestone!

I have old sports injuries and plantar fasciitis, so many types of exercises are difficult for me, but for now since I am SO out of shape I am starting with yoga, some walking and extra work around the house. I'm also starting to use a core ball to sit on instead of a computer chair at work, and want to incorporate 2 short core workouts per day while at the office.

I'm also working to cut sweets and soda, eat healthier in general and keep my daily intake below 1,800 calories per day on a weekly average.

I LOVE food and don't ever want to have to give up "the good stuff" entirely but I want to be able to make better choices and eat better in general so that when I do decide to eat something sinful it will be more fun and less guilt!
