Starting June 1, 2011

I will be going to Disney World in March of 2012 with my daughter, her husband and my 5-year-old grandson, Luke. I have over 100 pounds to lose and the Disney trip is my major motivation. I want to be able to keep up with that 5-year-old and not slow the rest of the family down.

I plan on using Weight Watchers, and my goal is to lose 70 pounds. If I lose more, that will be a major bonus! I will start a journal thread in a few days.

I am taking the challenge! I tried once before and that didn't last very long. But I just joined the Biggest Loser Summer 2011 challenge and that should be a good motivator.

I have no idea what my weight is right now, but I know it's over 200 lbs. I have always been slightly overweight, but when I started college in Fall '09, I gained the freshman 15 and then some.

I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which is a weight-double edged sword. Weight can cause PCOS but PCOS can also make it difficult to lose weight, but I'm going to try my hardest!

We're going back to Disney in October and I want to wear a bikini to Stormalong Bay, darn it!

I'm in. Only a little weight to lose, around 20 lbs. but I really want to be in the best shape I've even been in in my life. I realized I wasn't too far out of shape on our last trip to WDW and I wore DH out as I led us through the parks at warp speed to reach desired destinations before the rest of the crowds. I have an on the feet all the time 12 hour a day job so being on the go in no big deal, but eating poorly and making the right choices is. When pressed for time after a long hard day it is easier to dine out and grab fast food than eat at home or choose healthier options. But, I've gotta get serious and so I'm in too.

Count me in!

I have been on NutriSystem for the last four months and have lost 47#s so far but with summer coming it is getting harder to stay focused.

Good luck to everyone!

Thank you! I wish I could say I have reached my goal, but I am not quite half way. I guess it was way too many years holding onto the weight from my kids, but one is in college and the other is a junior. Time to get started so I can be around to see the grandkids years from now.

I need something to get myself motivated to lose some weight. I am tired of being tired. I have put on 20 pounds in the last 2 years and am having problems.

My ankles hurt constantly, I can't motivate myself to do things because they hurt. I take dance (except during the summer) and now I am not interested in that. Plus when I had blood work done a couple months ago, my bad cholesterol is up. I know it has to do with my weight.

I started the change 2 years ago and so I am now on a hormone patch. This is one of the reasons that I started putting on weight plus I quit smoking a year ago April. I have terrible chocolate cravings or sweet cravings in general.

Unfortunately I am a very picky eater. I don't eat vegetables or salads at all. Since I am not working, I really can't join a weight loss program.

Can anyone give me ideas on what to do to get myself motivated?

Count me in for the challenge. I've been overweight and out of shape for far too long. It's time to take control of my life!

Fifty & Fit

Yeah, that's my goal. I have used WW two or three times, usually quit due to financial constraints. Now, I've just quit again and am looking for something else to motivate me to continue on my healthy life path!

I'd like to lose over 50 lbs and be fit...And the journey begins today.

Count me in!

hey y'all This past sept I had my second child and gain 80lbs I have lost 35lbs of it but still working on the last 1/2 and its just not happening. So hopefully this will make me a bit more accountable. I have been using the lose it app which I love and trying to throw some work outs in. I now have 40 days to my trip so I would love to lose 10lbs before we go so I can at least fit in to my old fat cloths Wish me luck

I'm jumping in with both feet! I am in week 6 of reinventing myself as a healthy, active person. I've lost 12.8 pounds and am feeling dramatically better already. I'm using the resources and plan at sparkpeople.com. I don't use their meal plans, I create my own but use their tracking system to ensure the right calories and nutrients every day. I'm walking and doing strength workouts at home and will join a gym in September. My ultimate goal is to participate in a Disney Princess half-marathon. It's a dream I've had for a long time and never had the courage to say out loud, but now I'm saying it OUT LOUD - I WILL GET THERE!
