I had lost 13 pounds and have hit the wall. But, I fell off the wagon too. I just got myself an exercise cycle so I'm back on. I have exactly 4 months until my next trip.

Hey all

Ready to start taking the WISH challenge.
I need the extra motivation. Tired of feeling bad and never having any energy. Instead of looking at it as a diet, I am looking at it is as getting healthy and when the weight comes off, great no pressure to be thin, just healthy. Want to feel better and that in return will make all the difference to me. Started walking cycling 3 weeks ago going to start running at the beginning of Feb. Trying to take it slow to big up strength.
Going to sign up for the 1/2 Marathon 2012 as soon as registration begins....
So excited about my new journey!

Hi all!
I took my first steps toward a healthier life last year when I started running. I trained all year, and ran about 15 races, including my 1st 1/2 marathon! You'd think I'd have lost some weight in the process, but I only lost about 5 pounds total.
I'm at the very top of the healthy weight range for my height, so I'm determined to start eating healthier and continue running to lose at least 10 pounds.

Hey Everyone!

I'm ready to do this wish challenge thing.
My short term goal is to learn more about how I need to get healthy and lose weight, along with making sure I get enough protein and Iron! (and other nutrients too, those are just the 2 I am paying super attention to)
My long term goal is to lose about 50 pounds. But I want to make sure that it is a lifestyle change that I can stick with, so I know it may take a long time!
I've been tracking food and exercise on myfitnesspal for a few weeks, and its been great for me!
I'm also in a jazz class which is soooo much fun!
And I'm a 20 year old college student.

I think this is a great idea. My goal is to get into better conditions. Also loose some weight, but mostly fitness. I'm been out of commission with a fracture, so my first step is to start walking.

Hi, Eva here! I definitely would like to take the challenge! I am starting at 168 pounds and would like to be at 135 by my daughters wedding in August. I have a thyroid disorder that has put this wieght on me for about 5 years now. Before that I was normally pretty average sized. So losing this weight is going to take a combination of exercise and a healthy diet. My doctor said it will be tough, but it can be done. So I am dedicating myself to:

1. at least 5 workouts a week (2 days with weight training)
2. 1,400 to 1,600 calories a day
3. making myself move more during the day
4. training for my very first 5K run in May

I'm ready to get healthy again. I have 30 pounds that I need to lose. I had lost 10 by starting to run but stopped for a couple of months and gained those pounds back. I have been in two local 5Ks the past year and would really love to do the princess half marathon in 2012. So my plan is to train for the half marathon and lose some weight in the process.

I'm very new to the board, but am a longtime lurker, lol. I would love to be a W.I.S.H. member.
I am planning my first trip to the world in September, and at about 180 lbs on a 5'2" frame, my long term health goal is to lose 50 lbs.
But by the trip I just want to be able to walk at least 5 miles a day without feeling it.

DH and I just got a puppy, a Golden Border Collie (1/2 golden retriever, 1/2 border collie. She was free needing a home.) He has a LOT of energy so I spend my day mostly following around the house trying to keep him out of trouble, and when he has all his shots I plan on taking him for gradually longer and longer walks.

DH and I also stopped eating out/fast food (easiest way to afford the trip in the first place)

So, for September I want to lose 20 lbs, but I don't want to focus on weight loss, just upping my stamina so I can keep up with my very fitDH. And look good for the pictures lol!

Hi all,

I'm in. My goal is to complete the c25k program and to run/walk a 5k in the beginning of May. I won't be through the program by then, but I know I can do a 5k, just not running the whole way.

If I make it to this goal, I am hoping to follow it up with a race at Disney. The Princess Half Marathon seems like a lofty goal, though it would be fun. More realistically, I think the F&W event has a 10K, so maybe I'll try to do that.

One step at a time...

I would love to join this! I am at 208 pounds right now. An all time high with the exception of pregnancy which toped out only a bit higher. My goal is to be down to 150 before my next Disney trip which I believe is April 2012.

I am starting the C25K plan and plan on adding Zumba and walking as well. Focusing on veggies and fruits and whole grains deleting as much processed foods as I can.

I've lost 52 pounds on Jenny Craig so far, and I have about 20 more to reach my goal weight. I'm currently working on the Couch to 10K program with my iPhone app and I've signed up for the WDW Half Marathon for 2012. I feel better than I have in more than 10 years, and I'm hoping I can keep the momentum going for reaching my goal weight and then maintaining or possibly even losing more than that, as long as it's done in a sane, healthy manner.

I just need to win the lottery in order to have enough time off and money for my Disney fixes. That's all.

I'm here to announce my commitment to get healthier, especially by starting a regular exercise regimen and hopefully shedding some more of the extra weight that I have always carried. I want to feel good and be a good example to others, especially my son. I'm 5'9" and want to initially shed another 20 pounds, but eventually I would like to shed another 20-30 after that. I don't look my weight as I am a taller female and am well-proportioned; That stated, this extra weight has to go as I am feeling pain at times in my knees, hips and ankles, so it is really time to do this! One day I'd like to participate in a WDW run, but that is a much farther goal, I think.

I got back on the Wii today to do yoga/stretching and some strength training. I was cringing to think what my scores would be but was pleased that I have lost 8 pounds since I was last on it, more than six months ago. Also, my Wii age dropped to 28...since I'm 41 I was really pleased but I think that was grossly exaggerated!!!

Also, finally we are having better weather here and so I started the C25K program today. My son (12) and I are doing it together; a way for me to make sure individual fitness becomes entrenched in his lifestyle (he plays soccer and likes other sports) and for me to stay committed and for both of us to have a personal cheerleader. Unfortunately, we only got about half-way through before it started pouring rain (curse you weather-forecaster!!) I hope that we can head back out soon as it looks like it is starting to brighten up out there. I expect I will need to repeat week 1 at least once as I have never been much of a runner. I really like to walk and can sustain a fairly fast pace when walking, but running is a real challenge for me.

So glad that I found this area of the Disboards...I need some support and I'm willing to give that to others. I've always been one to champion other people's goals but not ask others to champion mine or to even share my own goals. This is a place where I can definitely start to do this within my own comfort zone!
