Welcome

Welcome, Darcy! I have been through the abdominal hysterectomy thing and it is important not to rush things. So continue the small steps that you are taking and you will get to the point that you are able to exercise more vigorously. Make sure that you do not rush past what your doctor recommends, when she gives the ok, the ab exercises will really help your recovery and your cruise fitness goal!

I've decided I need to quit smoking, sooner than later.
Wanted to wait til I lost about 50lbs more.
Anyone else try quitting and losing weight at the same time.
Thanks,
Lynn

Hi-yes I quit smoking and started Atkins at the same time-lost 25 lbs and haven't touched a smoke since! My desire to be healthy overcame all my urges! Good Luck!

I've officially started my WISH challenge today. I rejoined the gym at work and went to a step aerobics class today. I feel great and I'm not in pain. I suffered from pubic symphisis when pregnant with our "little souvenir" and I couldn't walk in the later stages of pregnancy without pain. I still couldn't walk long distances, do strenuous exercise, or run without pain for over 1 1/2 years post partum. I enjoy going to classes at the gym; I seem to "slack off" when left to my devising my own workout routine. Why run on the treadmill for 1/2 an hour when I can walk for 5 minutes then go get a smoothie. LOL.

I'm not on the Atkins or South Beach diet; I'm just trying to make healthier choices and control my portions. I don't think I have the discipline to stick with a structured diet. I do want to read the Okinawan diet book though.

My goals: Tone up, go down 2 pants sizes, lose at least 10 pounds.

Talking

I think I will try the challenge as well. I am 35 y/o mom with 2 girls (13 and 9). I have never worn a bikini before and I want to wear one for my fiance' in September when we go to
DisneyWorld. This is my first time back since I was 9 y/o and my girls have never been. So I want to look good. I am taking prescribed medication and going to they gym as often as I can. I have lost a few pounds this month, but need to lose more. My fiance' thinks I look fine, but I don't think so. :space:

I"m going to Disney in March 2005. I've lost about 25 lbs since February, but seem to be stalling.

I am going to do the following:

-increase my water
-increase protein
-try not to eat when I'm not hungry (very difficult to do)

and do the following 12 Week Treadmill Workout

http://www.prevention.com/cda/featur...1-6545,00.html

Thanks for the thread!

Kim

Its time to do the
WISH Challenge
I need to loose weight and excercise. I have been excercising now for 3 weeks. But I haven't decided on a diet. I have just been trying to eat healthy and smaller more often during the day.
It is impossible not to eat after 6pm or 7pm like most people cause I get off at 6:30. I come home and excercise then I eat so I am eating at 8pm. But I am trying to make it a sensible meal.
I need to loose alot. But I would be happy to start with a first goal of 20 pounds. How's that?

Going to be lurking lurking. Hoping for some tips...

July


Update: I have been doing the Sacred Heart Diet for a week! I think I can follow this one. I get 2 days off after 7 days on. As long as I don't go crazy on my days off I think I will gradually loose weight. But with the thyroid problem I have it will probably be slow going..

July,
I have the same problem you do. I have a flex schedule at work sometimes I am home at 4pm and sometime 7pm. So I just try to eat at a regular time each day. Around 7am normal breakfast, around 1100 small to normal lunch (usually small) then at dinner what ever time I get home I eat really small so I can have a light snack before bedtime. I also eat buttlerless popcorn and dill pickles and drink lots of water. I of course try to exercise, I have kids and am single so going to the gym isn't always the thing I can do. I have lost 10 pounds in a few months just watching my intake.

Good luck.

Disneyfun2,
Well I just read on a tip somewhere in this board drink only water after 6pm. I am going to try that too! Thanks for the input!

I am just adding on so everyone here knows that I have a second goal to loose 20 more after the first 20.
Oops I guess that would make me have third goal too of another 20 lbs.

Yuck It seems like alot of hard work

July

Okay...I'd like to join the DIS WISH CHALLENGE. I desperately need to lose some weight and start living a healthier life. Last October-December I dropped a remarkable 35 pounds (unfortunately due to a breakup with my fiance). Although it was a sad time for me, losing the weight made me feel 100% better about MYSELF...which I really needed at that time.

Since then, I have fallen in love with a wonderful guy. The unfortunate part of this relationship is that he loves cooking and eating and trying new resturaunts and foods....this all adds up to added pounds. I have gained back 20 of the 35 pounds that I lost last year. I'm pretty depressed about the whole thing - especially since my WDW trip is coming up in just over 2 months now. When we first started planning in Feb. I was so excited because I actually thought I was going to be able to wear the bikini that I bought a few years ago...doesn't look like it's going to happen.

So....needless to say, I need some support from people other than my BF. He's 100% supportive of my wants and needs but as sad as it sounds, he contributes to the problem -- I'm not saying it's his fault at all....this is MY responsibility but it is just so much harder when that's the kind of things that you like to do together....eat!!

I'm going to get him to start eating healthier and working out more too in the next few months. Hopefully...together, we can all make our lives better and healthier!!!

I look forward to giving and receiving some great support on this challenge!!

WISH Challenge

Hello,
I am ready to join your group. I am a lifetime WW member although sadly I am not at my lifetime goal anymore. About 40 lbs away to be exact. We have plans to go to Disney World and cruise December 2005 and I will not go at the size that I am now. I have redeveloped bad habits and I will redevelope good ones. I need a buddy (preferably on WW) to help keep me accountable. Thanks for this board.
