Are there other threads to post on as well? I'm lost in this section of the DIS... normally I hang out in the Cruise threads...
Where do you get all the cute little WISH icons? What are all those challenges I see? Where are they.. a different thread?
Doing okay today. I really need motivation to get out and walk. It's 87 degrees with a heat index of 95º... ugh.

Are we still taking the challenge?!

I started my journal for accountability yesterday and I'm on day two of my challenge. Just reading these boards have given me so much support already.

I've checked out this board a few times and want to join. I joined WW two weeks ago and have lost 5.2lbs already. It's great to have a place to go to for support on non-meeting days. I'm hoping to lose 100lbs. I've tried different things and they worked but then I went back to old habits and I gain back so I'm hoping WW is the plan for me.

I am in for this any support will be greatly appreciated. I started my way to healthier living in June of this past year. I was going to Curves but we moved and I just can't seem to get there sio for now I am doing DVD's and eating healthier and watching portions.

I was measured at curves on 3/7 here are the measurements from that time.
BUST 43
WAIST 40.75
ABDOMEN 43.75
HIPS 47
THIGHS 27.5
ARMS 13.25
WEIGHT 215.25
BODY FAT 39.20%

And this is what I have as of 9/16
Bust 42.25
Waist
Abs 39.75
Hips 43
Thighs 24
Arms 12.75
Weight 191


I have had a hard time these past couple weeks I haven't really gained or lost anything. So I am coming to WISH for support and advice to help me work towards my goal.

Hi! I'm new on the boards and I'd like to join WISH. I tend to do a pretty good job of watching what I eat, but I get discouraged because I constantly seem to lose and gain the same 5 pounds no matter what I do. One thing I have never really been consistant about is journaling, so I want to give it a try.

I have been exploring the GI diet. I've been searching for a diet that focuses on reducing refined sugar and processed foods, and this one seems to do that. I know I still need to watch portions and fat/calorie content though. I have my handy dandy point calculator from when I was doing WW and I use it when I have nutrional content to plug in. Unfortunately none of the recipies from the GI diet books list nutritional content. If anyone can suggest a free calculator I would really appreciate it - I was spoiled by the one on WW.com. I know about fitday, but it doesn't do recipes.

For excersise, I am trying to follow the body for life plan (alternating cardio with strength training 6 days/week). I missed a day of cardio this week because I broke my toe the night before. It doesn't hurt anymore so I'm back on track.

What else? I'm 36 years old and weigh 195. I'm 5'3" small boned yet full figured. I think somewhere between 135-140 is a healthy weight for me. My goal is to lose 60 lbs, though I would probably be estactic with 50.

BTW, I have tried twice to start a journal, but each time I try I get a message that the thread is a duplicate of one I've started in the last 5 minutes, yet when I look for it - no thread. Huh?

Hello everyone! I've been lurking here at the DIS for several months. I recently rejoined Weight Watchers in an effort to lose weight and get healthy, so I thought I'd love to be a part of this challenge in preparation for my trip to the World next August! I look forward to being an active part of this board!!!

Talking OK, I'm ready....

I'm ready to take this challenge! The DIS has been very helpful to me so far, so after reading through some of the posts on this thread I think W.I.S.H. is for me. What a friendly and supportive group!

Last year, I lost 42 pounds in 6 months using a combination of Atkins and exercise--mostly walking. My weight loss goal at that time was 89 pounds. Since then I maintained for a while, but have gained back 5 pounds in the last couple of months. I've been going through a lot of personal crisis, so was pretty happy to just maintain without gaining, but now....I'm ready to get back to progress!

About me: 41 years old, married, full-time job, and mom of DD17, DS15, and DD11. My new goal is to lose 55 pounds, (and would LOVE to do it before our next WDW trip, June 2006) but I'm not sure which program is the best one for me. Atkins definitely worked, but I just can't see me restricting carbs so drastically for the rest of my life. Walking just doesn't seem to be getting me results like it used to, but it is the ultimate in convenience. I know that whatever changes I make, it will have to be for the rest of my life, or this body will slide back into it's old fat self in no time at all!

Please feel free to throw any suggestions or advice my way.

Time to get involved

Hello, everyone!

I'm new posting here. I joined the "150 club" thread, and that's where I learned about this one.

I need to lose about 30 lbs to get into the 150's. I have a little side bet going with DH. If I can lose 30lbs by February, we can go to WDW next spring (probably early May). Otherwise, we won't go until late fall 2006.

I haven't set up exact exercise goals or specific diet plan. I have a hard time keeping a journal. So basically I've done the following:
  • walk at least everyother day, at least 30 minutes each
  • strength exercises (sit-ups, etc) 2 nights/week
  • no eating after 8pm
  • drink water (5-8 glasses/day)
  • no more soda

After about two weeks, I've lost 2 lbs.

Good luck to all!

I'm in! I'm Ashe, and I've lost about 50 pounds so far, but have another 100 to go. I'm doing a combination of portion control and South Beach. I'm also trying hard to get in walking 2-3 times a week on the treadmill.

Thanks for letting me join in.
