Wow... whoever decided to put Disney and weight loss on the same website is a complete genius!!! What a great and wonderful idea!!

I would like to jump on board. I spent the majority of the last ten years skinny and rather unhappy. Then, a little under 3 years ago, I met a wonderful man, got engaged and married in Disney World, and have been very happy and pudgy ever since. I would love to get back to my previous figure and start cycling on a regular basis.

Hopefully WISH will help me reach my goals!

Oh, and I'm going to Disney again in Sept. and would like to be a litter hotter by then...lol.

Hi everyone! My goal is to eat healthier, start walking on a daily basis (perhaps even start running), and lose about 15-20 lbs.

Here's to a healthier life!

Hi all - I'm jumping right on in here as well. I joined WW 6 weeks ago, and have lost 11lbs so far, but still have 80ish to go... My DH is doing this with me, and it's great to have his support. (It's also annoying how quickly the weight is falling off him - he's lost 30+ in the same 6 week period!!!)

We have a land/sea trip coming up the week after Thanksgiving, and my goal is simply to feel better about the way I look. I'm moderately active, and am slowly beginning to incorporate more excercise into my life. I also have found myself struggling to drink enough water, even though I know I retain it if I don't. I just found WISH, and look forward to using it as a tool to motivate me. If all goes well, maybe my 4 year old won't even remember how big I am when he gets older.

Hi, I am starting the W.I.S.H programme today and I have heard that setting small goals are best to keep you motivated so in an effort to stay motivated my first goal is to not go back to the fridge for junk and to drink a tall glass of water (I seldom drink water first habit I would like to change) be back in a sec........................sorry had to run for that glass of water.....I would like to ultimately lose 55 pounds that's my long term goal, I currently weigh 198 lbs. I want to do this for myself firstly to be healthy and happy and for my family also to encourage my children to eat better and exercise more and to have happy healthy lives. I cant tell you how often I have started, took a day off, days turn to weeks, weeks to months and so on I am determined to make it up this hill once and hopefully for all

Starting today

I am starting right now. I am going back on my MS diet. No gluten, no eggs, no dairy, no legumes. Eating lots and lots of fruits and vegetables, and chicken..occasional fish (can't make it at home because DD is allergic and can't risk cross contamination). I will also begin supplimenting with fish oil and billiberry. Will start going to the gym 3 times per week and walking 3 times per week. No time to start like the present. I would like to lose weight but more importantly get my body back in shape and to stop that darn tingling in my hands and tone in my legs. It worked very well for me the first time I did it... don't know why I stopped. I can't remember a time that I felt better.

After a week or so of lurking, I'd like to join in!

My goals are to be in better shape physically and hopefully lose weight (quite a bit) along the way. I hate the scale, so at this point am basing everything on how my clothes fit.

I have been walking on my treadmill faithfully for over a month, just brought home my Wii Fit, and have been working the C25K program in (which I learned about on these boards!)

I quit smoking the end of January and told myself if I can do that, I CAN become fit.

I think it's fabulous that the DIS boards offers so many different areas! I have learned many great things on the DIS, and now I can add that I have been motivated by many different stories that I've read on here. Everyone keep up the great work!

After lurking in the WISH forum for awhile now, I decided to join in!

Right now my two main goals are to run the Disney half marathon in Jan 09 and to eat healthier/lose weight. I started walking in Jan 08 and walked a 10k in April. In May I switched over to the C25k program with my SIL (miabellrose) and we're on the 2nd to last week of that. I now have 6 months to get from 3 miles to 13. I'm hoping to find lots of running motivation here. My second goal, which I hope will be achieved through the above running along with eating healthier, is to lose weight.

So far so good - I went to my WW meeting at lunch today, and have lost 4.2 lbs over the past 2 weeks!

I'm struggling with things that are obvious, though - I'm still not exercising, eating enough fruits/veggies, or drinking enough water. DH brought the recumbant bike up to the bedroom, and he's been dedicated to riding it. Me - not so much . I should be thrilled that I lost almost 15 pounds over the last 8 weeks, but given that my starting point was so huge I feel like I haven't even made a dent. I go back and forth between elated and defeated. How did I get here?

Okay, enough whining. I'm going to get up right now and go refill my water bottle.

I've been lurking around here for a bit, posted a few times, and even started a journal so I figure it's time to make it "official" and take this challenge!

I've got two main goals for getting healthy - lose 35 pounds (I've lost 7 of those so far) and train for the Princess half marathon. I'm going to do this by drinking more water, watching my calorie intake, and of course, exercise! I'm doing the C25K program right now (just finished week 3) and hope to start adding in strength training on my non-running days.

I have been trying to lose weight on my own for months now, I have ended up gaining 5 pounds
I know what I need to do, I have been through WW twice now and really enjoy the points system.
I would like to lose about 80 pounds and I would like to have 50 of it off by my trip in March, I would love to be a little comfortable in the airplane seats and on the rides and walking around Disney. That's about 8 pounds a month, I know that I can do that.
My plan is to change things in stages and make each change a habit before adding something new, right now I am going to start to up my water intake and to stop eating after 7 pm (I tend to eat a lot in the evenings), after that I am going to start working out more, I hit the gym once a week and try to walk a few nights a week. I have an extemely crazy schedule and finding time to work out is hard right now, I want to have a plan though when school starts back up in the fall that I have at least 4 nights a week for exercise.

I am hoping by telling someone else my plan it will help me stick to wanting to be healthier, I know that if I lose my weight I can be off my blood pressure medicines. And along the way I want to be able to teach my sons about loving themselves and treating their bodies right.

I would like to join your challenge!

I am currently on WW. I am trying to get down to my old weight- 100 lbs. I am 4'10" and this is the weight my doctor and I discussed. I do get tired of people telling me that that weight makes me anorexic- just because it is an unhealthy weight for most people does not mean it is an unhealthy weight for somebody of my stature.

One thing I have difficulty with is the number of points. Being a very small person, I don't need to eat adult sized portions- but that is all restaurants serve! I think my father hit the nail on the head when he said it's not that I eat more than most people, it's that I eat as much as the average adult and I am not the size of the average adult.

I plan to get healthier by doing WW, and actually sticking with it this time. I have been yo-yoing now for several years. I graduate with my master's next May and really want to look good by then. I used to be a dancer and right now I will not take lessons because I feel like an elephant in a leotard next to all of these skinny minnies. I really want to get back into it but am not comfortable doing so until I can at least wear a leotard comfortably again.

I am focusing on the points/portion control aspect, and am planning to slowly add in exercise. I am waiting to have knee surgery in August for Plica Band syndrome, so I am afraid to do anything too intense at this point. I do try to walk my dogs several times a week, and walk to my grad classes when it is not that hot. I'm actually looking forward to physical therapy because I know they will help me get my butt in gear .

I'm joining today! I lost 33 lbs on WW in the past, but after having my DS 3 years ago, I put the weight back on and then some. I tried WW again three times, but for some reason it wasn't working. I just started Nutrisystem today, so I hope that works. I actually went to the doctor last night for a check up and he told me he wants me to lose at least 20 lbs. I actually want to lose 40 to get back to my goal weight. I'm very excited to get my old life and body back. I am determined to make this happen!

I'm signing up. I quit smoking 9 months ago and have gained 20 lbs. I wasn't thin before that, thanks to Katrina. So I've got 35 lbs to lose. I joined a fitness center two weeks ago and have been going 5 days a week. I'm up to 1 hour on the treadmill and working with the weight/toning machines. I've lost 7 lbs so far!
