Hi! I want to take the WISH challenge too! 3.5 weeks ago I started Weight Watchers and have lost 8 lbs so far. I began walking in earnest last week. Both me and dh have to lose weight, me-- for my kids so I can have more energy to play with them and dh because his doc told him to lose 20 lbs because he is at risk for diabetes.

I'm in. I am doing a low-carb thing, a lot of water, trying to start walking.
I started 1 month ago and have lost 14 pounds. Want to lose at least 75- 100. I would love to lose 50 before Disney in March '06. I will need all the support I can get to do that.

Hi everyone!

I would love to join the WISH Challenge! I am getting married on May 20, 2006 and don't want to have any regrets about what I should have done when I put on my dress!

I've started and stopped WW several times since getting engaged, but I'm hoping this is the time I'll stick with it. Basically, I will be following the WW plan but not going to meetings. I'm hoping to lose 35 lbs before my wedding.

Thanks for letting me join!
Mommy to a little princess (2) and a little mouse (5 months)!

Yup. I'm in. I have been planning this trip for 6 years and then life keeps throwing us a curve ball. The curve balls have started me stress-eating (aka binging on junk food waaaaaaay too much). I was gestational diabetic almost 15 years ago, and yet I am to the point of bringing home treats from the grocery store and binging on them when no one is home. How dumb is that?!!! I know full-blown diabetes could be just around the corner and yet I am having trouble stopping.

That said, I realized I don't want to cart this extra 15 lbs around on our trip to WDW on Nov 30th. Therefore, I have been walking my dog about 2 - 3 miles just about every day for the last couple of months, and I just started the Scarsdale Medical Diet this week. It is the only diet I have have ever done (14 years ago) to lose my "baby fat" when my first son was born, and it worked for me then (I have slowly crept up and down since then). I have already lost 3 pounds in 4 days, but got bad news today about something so ordered pizza for supper tonight instead of eating healthy. I HAVE to stop giving in to these impulses. I want to stop. Hopefully WISH can keep me motivated!!

Sign me up!

I need to:

1) stop smoking immediately!
2) exercise more consistently!
3) lose 10% of my weight so that I can fit into my clothes again!

I love the Dis, and am hoping that I can find inspiration here to meet my goals. Thanks!

Hello~~Would like to join in. Goal for me is 50# and to walk , and alot more. Heading into snowy weather pretty quick, so it will be mall-walking~just got to walk early before the smells of the food places in the mall permeate the air (I swear the smells contain calories ). My plan is to just cut calories(get rid of that junk/fast food) and improve what I eat. Looking forward to casting a smaller shadow in the Florida

Hi -- I would like to join the Wish Challenge. I just had baby girl #3 2 months ago and I need to lose 45lbs(12 left from pregnancy weight and 33 that I have needed to lose for far to long)! I want to lose the weight to feel better about myself, look better for my husband and to be a good role model for my daughters. I currently try to go to aerobics class 3 times a week but with school schedules, and baby I sometimes just make it 2 times. So my plan is to exercise at home when I miss class and join weight watchers online, and get and give help and support from other WISH members. We are planning on returing to Disney in May 2006 so I am making that my goal date which is about 7lbs a month!

I'd like to take the WISH challenge. I need to get healthy so that I can be around for my girls. Plus I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy and since my dad is diabetic, I have a good 80% chance of getting Type 2 in 5 years if I don't change my lifestyle.

I've been doing WW at home with the program I bought a number of years ago (and never did beyond a week). I started 5 weeks ago and I've lost 19.5 pounds so far. I have about 70 pounds to go. I am hoping to continue to exercise as I started that a month ago and don't ever recall exercising consistently before that time. I am doing Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds and this week I started alternating it with Billy Blanks' Tae Bo the Power Within. Water...I really need to get on the ball with that one.

We have a cruise planned on DCL for May '06 and I would very much like to be no more than 20 pounds from my goal by that time. Thanks for everyone's posts as it's good to know I'm not alone.

I'm joining today. I've already lost 35 pounds, but have at least another 25 that I want to lose. I pledge to eat more consistently and to walk at least 25 minutes a day. I lost my weight initially by eating more frequent meals. My life has changed a lot since then, so I've been plateaued. So I'm hoping that all your support and motivation will help me overcome that plateau, and keep reaching for that goal.

I've been visiting these boards for 2 months or so, and finally visited the WISH board. I (along with millions) started a dieta and exercise plan 1/1/05. I lost 10 pounds by mid-February. Then, I went back to my old habits. Always an excuse for not exercising. So, I am posting to sign up - hope it will keep me accountable. I need to lose 50 lbs. We are planning an Orlando trip in June 2006. If I don't get the weight off, I will not make in the Florida SUN!!! My plans are to exercise 3-5 times a week, drink water, and cut down on the bread.

Count me in!

I am trying to get back into the habit of excersizing/going to the gym 3x a week. DH and I go together and this is the first week that we have consistently made the effort. We are going on our first DCL this February and I would like to be in good shape for vacation.
