I would also love to take the WISH challenge

I am 5'4 and my starting weight as of Nov. 1 was 235 , I would love to get to a size 14 and around 165 lbs even though that is still too high of a BMI....but one step at a time, my first major goal is to get to 225

I am taking the WISH Challenge!

I need to lose 67#'s in the next year. I will be 40 next October and will be celebrating with my daughter on her 21st birthday at Disney World!

I want to be in a healthier place before we go. My plan is still undefined, but I have finally made up mind to get started. I start with no fast food, no soft drinks and a lot more water.

WISH me luck!

Hi, everybody!
Well, I think it's time. There are so many things I need to get a handle on in my life. The list of things I need to work on is always changing, but the weight is always right there at the top of the list. I believe I gave up years ago thinking that it was just too...hopeless. But I know it isn't. I'm better than that. I owe it to myself and my family to get it together. I think I'll hang around this board and see what I can pick up and decide on a plan from there.

I would like to join the challenge also, I'm just starting today. We're going back to WDW in April and I want to lose some poundage by then.

Last week we watched a video from our 2004 WDW trip and I was disgusted by how much weight I've gained since then, I was so thin back then! I quit smoking in the last year and have packed on the pounds, it's been a very rough road. I also know that this time of year is going to make this twice as hard for me since I love sweets and the Holidays are coming! *pout*

I just got back from a Land/Sea week. Between the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and 4 days on the Wonder I've gained 5 pounds. Yes, I can eat a prime rib at Parrot Cay when the Wonder is rolling through 8-13 foot seas. (I didn't believe it either, but I did it!) I've been fighting to lose even a few pounds for the past several months. Now, I need to set a new goal toward energy and stamina and weight loss before I go on a 17 day trip to the middle east. Besides, I've been talking to an old girlfriend from 10 years ago who knew me when I was 60 pounds lighter and running/walking 3-5 miles a night. I hope to see her for the first time in a month or so. How's that for extra motivation?

Making phone calls now to local gym and local WW. Thanks to everyone on here.... I love the way you all encourage and help each other.... I would love to be a part of it it you'll have me!!! My goal is to lose 35 pounds !! and keep it off !!

Hey, what a better day to start... Turkey day!!

A little late for my cruise that's coming up in a few weeks, but never too late to start. I'm looking to lose about 65 lbs. I'm going to start walking again, and maybe eventyally running and watching what I eat.

I like the WW points plan, but if I just eat a well balanced meal, and limit the sugar and fat, all should go well. My down fall is there isn't a french fry I've met I haven't liked.

The bigest loser has got me motivated.... I hope Suzie wins! And my 2yo DD! I love her to pieces, and want to make sure I see her grow up. Now to convince my DH to join me.

Take care, and keep up the good work people!

Hi, I just figured out I should check in here.

My story... Right now I am 3 pounds less than when I got married (not my heaviest before marriage ). My first goal is to be 20 pounds less my Wedding weight by our 10th Anniversary in May.

I never seemed to gain weight preggo (gained 24 ish lbs. and lost a week or two later) but nursing seemed to pile it on. I was 30 pounds heavier my Wedding weight once DD2 weaned. I lost 50 pounds after my DD2 weaned, with diet pills and exercise so I know I can do it. Diet stopped when I got preggo with DD3.

I did lose 20 with WW while nursing my DD3 but since then stopped WW and regular exercise and gained 10ish back in 1 1/2 years. (Boy talk about shock when I learned about portion sizes at WW. No wonder, I was clueless about what I had been eating, I knew it was bad but not that bad. )

After that my next goal is to lose 32 pounds more to hit the BMI goal of healthy weight (140) but I would be happy if it would just say 150.

I have always been heavy (123 in 8th grade is a vivid memory of shame in gym class) and as a child of divorce I have eating issues that I use food as a comfort item.

I so want to be a HOT Mama by our Anniverary. I have been saying that for a while but today is the day to get back on the wagon and stay on it. So I joined December challenge and 150 club.

Hi Everyone. I am new here. My name is Ali,and I am 27 years old. I currently weigh 388 pounds. I have hypertension( average reading 215/120),type 2 diabetes,and high cholesterol. I went to the doctor Monday,and he was frank with me that I didn't lose weight soon, I could die or have a heart attack. He suggested gastric bypass,but I really don't want to do that. I have never really exersised or cared about my weight. What do yall suggest?

Well I 'd say you took the first step and got involved with us. Go to the thread that say 150 lbs care to join. This a a group of us who are looking toward the 150's.. Full of motivation. My mom had Type 2 diabetes. She passes due to all the complications of the disease. She was a young 68. She, unlike you did not want to help herself and bucked the doctor's every chance she got. Instead of fighting with her to eat right and excerise, I just decided she would die doing exactly what she wanted to do. And she did.

I would say tomorrow when you get up in the morning walk around your drive way or someplace where you can start you new HABIT of excerising. Or walk in place for 5 minutes. Than the next day add an additonal minute or an additonal lap. You can do this, and we will be there to cheer you on.

Thanks for coming to us and letting us help you

Hi All,
My name is Wendy and I am taking the challange also.We just booked our Magical cruise for next December and I need to lose the weight also. I live in New Orleans and survived Katrina so this should be easy right!!Problem is I bought a new scale after we lost our old one in the flood and was stunned when I stood on it and saw 250 when did that happen. I don't know about ya'll but I swear when I look in the mirror it must be with skiny glasses on. So here we go ......
