Hi, I want to join in the challenge. I started to get fit in August 2002, I wanted to prepare to celebrate my 50th birthday in Disney World on November 10, 2004! So far I have lost 100 pounds. I started at 306, I only get weighed at the doctor's office, I am expecting to arrive in Onderland on my next doctor's visit on June 28. I am 5'10'' tall and my goal is 170, my other goal is to wear my wedding dress on our 28th wedding anniversary on Nov 5,2004. We are staying at Shades of Green and so far 13 people are coming to my birthday party at the hoop de doo review. I am planning on getting my red hat at midnight at Howl at the Moon. I am looking forward to a support group that shares my love of Disney. I will try to figure out how to add my pictures. Janet Wilderness Lodge August 2004 Shades of Green birthday bash November 2004

Count me in!

My goal is to be 140 lbs. by the time we go to Disney in 2006. I am 5'8" and 240 lbs. Last February was my heaviest at 270 lbs. I then lost 50 lbs after giving birth to my son and I gained 20 back. So I have 2 years to lose 100 lbs. I plan to use the home gym we purchased at least 4 times a week and walk 3 times a week. I started drinking more water and less soda (even diet soda), I am cutting my portion sizes down and eating small snacks in between. I am also substituting Slim Fast for some meals but not all the time and not eating after 7 p.m. I do hope I can meet my goal because I really hate feeling tired all the time and don't want to ruin our vacation because I can't keep up. Good Luck to everyone else!

Lizzydoll, you are going about your fitness goals the right way! I started my quest for fitness the day before we left for Disney in August 2002. I had to rest at the Wilderness Lodge every afternoon, because I could not keep up with my family. It was nice reading by the fireplace in the lobby, but terrible to know you had no choice. Now they all tell me I walk too fast.

Smile Me too !

I would like to make a goal also. Since 1999 when I was pregnant I have been progressively gaining weight, and really haven't done much about it because I am still a fairly happy person. I have decided that I am no longer happy living in my fat body and I have to do something about it, NOW! I am 25 but I feel and look like I am 45, and I am ready to look and feel better. I have joined a gym, and my goal is to go to the gym at least 4 times a week, and to eat a low-carb diet and drink lots of water. I am 5'3" and right now I weigh 168lbs. My immediate goal is to loose around 15lbs in the next two months with eventually getting down to my ideal weight of around 125-135lbs. I am glad that this board is here to offer support. Thanks
Kim

Hi, I want to join the challenge too.
I moved to Florida last summer, and when I started my job, I noticed that my clothes that were a bit snug back home, were starting to fit and some were actually getting too big. When I went in for an annual checkup I discovered that I had lost almost 30lbs without really trying (just eating better here in Fla.), a blood test showed I had a low thyroid, so I started the medication, and I'm still losing weight. Right now it's about 50lbs, and I need to lose another 90lbs, hopefully before my 50th birthday in 2007. This is the first time I've ever been able to lose, and have actually kept it off. (I don't have comfort foods here that I had back home, luckily I don't like Krispy Kreme's).
So right now, I'm just watching the junk, and walking my dog (she walks me) as much as I can. I'm also golfing once a week.

Hi Moosysmom! I've seen your picture on other posts! Welcome to WISH. I'm fairly new (about a month) and also moved to Florida from So. California. My hubby and I retired in north east Florida. Since your picture is familiar, I just HAD to say hello. You couldn't have picked a better, more supportive group than WISH. Looking forward to seeing lots of posts from you! Hollyann

Thumbs up W.I.S.H. Challenge

As of today, you can count me in on the challenge.

My Goals:
1. To get down to 105 or down 2 dress sizes (I am now in size 10)
2. I want to get healthier and feel better about myself, I haven't felt good about myself in quite a while.

The plan I am using is very close to "The Zone"

Oh, although my user name is Jodistar...My name is Jodi

Started South Beach Diet 3 weeks ago - Love it! I always thought I ate healthy - South Beach has taught me so much about making better choices - I want to lose 10-15lbs and to keep making better food choices -

Talking I am in!!!

:thewave:

Count me in too! I have so far lost 58# on weight watchers but want to lose about 50# more before we go to Disney in November. I will need al the help I can get. The first 50# went off fast in 5 months but now the last 8# I have lost so far has been slow.

I have a 6 month old Black Lab that I walk twice a day so that is helping a little.

Tigger334,
I walk my 9 year old yellow Lab, or she walks me.
How is your lab walking?
She definitely helps me walk faster.
Welcome to wish.

Hello-my name is Darcy and I just turned 37 yesterday.
3 years ago I stopped smoking and went on Atkins and lost 25 lbs (160 to 135) I kept it off until this past year 10 lbs crept in!
Today is exactly 4 weeks since I had a abdominal hysterectomy. Prior to that I was an active person. I excercised regularly with strength training and aerobic exercise.
I am 5'5 and currently weigh 145lbs. I want to lose 10 lbs before our cruise.
My biggest set back is not being able to do much of anything due to rthe fact that recovery is slow and some minor complications occurred.
I am trying to watch what I eat and do upper strength training and some mild walking.
It becomes frustrating because my mind doesn't accept the fact that my body isn't able to exercise!
Hoping that these boards will help me find some encouraging words as I look forward to giving encouragement as well!

Darcy 37 yr wt 145 ht 5'5
goal 135 by cruise time 9/25
THE LAST 10 LBS ARE THE HARDEST TO LOSE
