Melissa, welcome! you will meet many people here who are in the same pickle. I am one of them. I lose very slow to the point of utter frustration. Please join us in the journal section and start your very own. Thats where you get so much friendship and support and you can let it all hang out.

Four weeks ago I started with LA Weight Loss. At that time I weighed an astonishing (for me) 293 pounds. My goal is 170. My counselor claims it will take a bit more than a year for me to hit my goal. So far after 4 weeks I'm down 13 pounds. Wish me luck.

I want to be a W.I.S.H. member too! My plan is to do the FIRM exercise tapes, and follow their monthly exercise plan. When I do exercise I always think twice about what is going into my mouth, and whether I'm really hungry or just bored. I also will make sure I drink 8 glasses of water--I already do that So it'll be a good start. Next May my sister will be getting married down in WDW and then will be our family vacation. I want to look and feel good while we are down there celebrating, and for the pictures that will hang on family walls for the rest of my life

Good luck! I started doing the firm tapes that involve the fanny lifter except I dont have the fanny lifter, but I have the 3 tapes and the sculpting stick and just a regular step. I started doing the tapes in May of 05 and by July I had lost 15 lbs. I was watching what I ate but not that well. Then in July I started having slim fast for break fast and lunch and then a baked potatoe, green veggie and grilled chicken. I am also getting at least 8 glasses of water in a day. I try not to go over 1200 calories and I exercise about 5 or 6 times a week for one hour. Once every week or two I have a cheat day. I think the cheat day has helped me not to plato(Spelling?). Since July I have lost 12 pounds. Anyway, I know you will look great for your sisters wedding and how lucky is she to have it at WDW!! I am also trying to work hard for my next trip next May to WDW. So good luck and have fun on your trip!!!

Hi This is a great thread. Right now Im in a size 12 my short term goal is to get to a 10. My long term goal is to get back down to my original size 6. Wishful thinking on my part oh I hope not.

Congrats to all who have lost.

I've been checking out the posts here for the past year. I'm ready to step up to the challenge! My goal is to lose 50 pounds by eating more sensibly and exercising. This weight loss will help improve my blood pressure and prevent type 2 diabetes. I keep wanting to get started but find reasons to put it off. Hopefully with all the support I see here I'll really do this. And the biggest benefit will be if my DH sees my success and gets motivated also. Thanks for being here!

I want to join the WISH challenge. I will use portion control, exercise and yoga to help me become healthy, strong and lighter (Goal weight is 160). I plan on exercising aerobically 4-6 hours a week and yoga for 1/2 hour twice a week. For portion control - I will eat sensibly with normal size portions (will follow what WW recommends).

I've always been overweight and have lost and gained hundreds of pounds. I have tried many programs (I think I joined WW about 5 times) and most of them work. I just haven't found what works for me.

I think Oprah is a very good role model. She tried so many weight loss programs that failed for her, but she kept trying and finally found what works for her. I did the same thing when I quit smoking 12 years ago. It took me 5 times before I quit for good.

I'm so glad I found this site on DIS. I can't wait to visit often.

Okay... I saw so many of those little WISH Icons in peoples sigs on the Cruise boards that I just had to check it out. I have 2 cruises worth of weight to lose.... and then some... so my Dr doesn't put me on cholesterol medicine. I am going to try weight watchers on my own. I got the books from some friends and have tried the points thing for almost a week now. I have not weighed myself again since I am in Orlando at the moment and don't have a scale. I'm going to try and walk or swim every day too. Look forward to "meeting" all of you and getting some support. I really really need support because I have NO willpower.

Ok, I want to join the WISH challenge!
I just had a baby in April and I need to lose 120 lbs.
My goal weight is 140! I got a Gazelle for Christmas so I can walk on it every day.
I have no willpower and I hate exercise so this is going to be tough, but I need to start looking out for myself.

I also need to get in shape so I can walk around EPCOT without needing CPR!

Welcome Stacy... I just joined too.... we can be no willpower buddies...LOL. For example... right now I really have the munchies and I want to eat some snack mix or pretzels or popcorn or SOMETHING! Instead I am drinking water and playing on the computer so I don't think about it! I was really good yesterday.. did 15 laps of the pool. Thought I would need CPR afterwards but I made it. Today... rain rain rain so I'm stuck. Living in FL in the summer really puts the kybosh on outdoor exercise!!

Where is everyone??

Well I weighed my self finally this morning and I have lost 3 pounds since starting WW last week! Whoo hoooo! I never thought I'd lose that much in one week. Esp since I was bad last Saturday! I don't really feel like I've lost any though... but it sure is good motivation to keep going.
