I'm having a hard time this year so far. I indulged during the holidays and then started induction after new year. I took off 8.5 pounds during induction and then nothing during these last three weeks. The ONLY thing that's going to help is kicking it up at the gym and making sure I'm drinking my 3 liters of water per day (which I'm very good about). I wish I could be more of an inspiration to you (other than this luscious piccie).

Keep up the good work and stay off the scale. It will drive you crazy.

Ok, I'm up for the challenge. I started my own personal challenge at the beginning of Jan. I started at a weight of 197lbs and I'm now at 190! So 8 lbs so far for me I'm going to WDW in May and my goal for that time is 165lbs. Im working out 3 times a week, staying away from white carbs and junk food and drinking LOTS of water

Good morning all!

Just checking in. As of today I have lost 25lbs!! Yay! It's not been entirely easy but since joining Overeaters Anonymous in Oct. It's been the best thing I've ever done. Like alot of people, I've tried all kinds of programs but this is the first time I'm feeling like not only is this working for me but that for the first time ever I feel like my weight loss may actually be permanant! I feel so much better both physically and mentally!

Wishing best of luck and success to all to acheive their weight loss goals!

I wish I could see some results here!

I started a regular walking program (on the treadmill at least 5x a week). Began this on January 3. Wore out my old treadmill and had to get a new one! I dropped 2 pounds (as you can see in my little thingy down below), but as of yesterday - they have returned. So in almost one month of diligence - NILCH! ZIP!

If I could even lose 4 pounds I'd be happy. I'm 50 and they say that women of my age have a hard time losing weight. Man, I guess that is so....

I did come here to find a support group and I am so happy for the success of you all -- but it becoming more discouraging to me as those all around are losing weight and I just can't seem to succeed.

Hi Kris {{{{ hugs }}}}

I can relate to how you're feeling. I ended up at O.A. after everything else I'd tried over the years failed. I cannot tell you how many times I tried one thing or another and either felt I wasn't getting anywhere or couldn't stick with whatever I was trying to do. There are some pretty great programs out there and some work for people and not others...for me it took realizing that I not only had a weight problem but a food problem. If you'd like any info. on what finally seems to be working for me, feel free to email me or PM me. Try not to loose hope, loosing weight no matter what program you use is tough...I still have a good 50 lbs or so to go to be where I'd like to be. Coming here to this board though is a great start I think though as we can all try and support each other and give each other tips we might never have realized we could try

Best wishes

I'm in!

Ok, here we go!
I am definitely challenged but definitely motivated!
I was a member of WW and it does work! Lost 35 lbs! Then, we went to WDW and I said hey I am on vacation.... long story short, that was the end of my ww! I only gained back 5 pounds, and have maintained, but I wish I had not fallen off the wagon!

I am not sure if I am going to do WW again or try the South Beach Diet... but I have started my walking routine again!
I think my rough goal is 60 lbs... but as I learned in ww, take it in small steps! So here I go!
I look forward to being encouraged by many of you, and to being an encouragement to you all as well!

Hi Zeke11,
I know how you feel, while I was off with DD I would walk her and our dog every day and pushing a heavy stroller and walking for 1/3 hour-45 min. per day - you would thik that would have worked but I never lost a pound in over a year. Dh felt (and said so in the nicest way possible) that if I really did want to see some results that I had to kick it up a notch and get my heart really racing. He said walking is great for overall health but hard to loose weight on it's own.

Sending you best wishes for a nice big loss this February!

Hey, I'm new and Thankful!

I've been reading the Disney forum for a few weeks now and I'm so excited to have come across the WISH forum! I've read a lot of places that highly recommend some kind of support group and I think I've found it. I've always been overweight, but I've finally started thinking I can do this. I started my lifestyle change the day after Christmas and as of this weekend I've lost 20 pounds! I've still got 57 pnds to go and hope to drop two sizes before going back to WDW this April. I'm looking forward to being involved in the forums!

Okay. I really need to lose at least 100 lbs. I am motivated in that I do want to be healthy. I want to find clothes that fit me. I want to be able to go out and not have people make fun of me.
However, I seem to have NO will power when it comes to dieting. I start out with all the best intentions in the world and I have never gone longer than 3-4 weeks on a diet. I have done WW, Atkins, South Beach, The Zone, traditional calorie, carb and fat counting.
Help! ANY advice is welcome, appreciated and desperately needed.

You can do it.

The thing that was most important for me was to start believing that I could be a slim person. I've always been overweight so for the longest time I didn't believe that I could do it. I would start diets and my brain would say things like "you tried before and didn't get anywhere" or "you'll give up after a week or two." Just do your best and give yourself a little faith and a little slack once in a while. And if you feel down or frustrated come to the forums.

Moonfleck: I'm so glad you're joining us here! That is awesome that you've lost 20 lbs since Christmas! If you don't mind me asking what sort of diet/exercise have you been doing so far? I really think you're going to enjoy it here, I've only been here a couple of weeks and the support is awesome!

I'm another new member to the WISH challenge!!! I've been procastinating way too long and need some support!! I wish to lose at least 55 lbs. Weight gain has been a battle of mine throughout my adult life. I checked into different weight loss establishments but they are rather expensive or they want you to take pills which I can't take. I'm battling high blood pressure which is one of the main reasons to lower my weight plus I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism which contributes to the weight gain, not to mention makes it harder to lose weight. Since I am now on meds to control this I'm hoping my attempts at weight loss will bring me some good results.

I look forward to reading about everyone's successes and encouragements!!

Thanks for letting me join in!!
