Ok, count me in! I need to lose some weight! I would say probably about 30 lb. to start. I have lost weight in the past and have kept most of it off. We are going to Disney World in Sept. and want to lose weight before that. I will be hard for me w/ my DH.....he loves to eat and doesn't care. He says he wants to lose weight but when it's time to eat, he wants a lot! I'll make dinner and he'll say....is this it? It's so frustrating!! So I will need lots of support. He wanted to get pizza last night and I said no! I won out!!! Anyway, so here I am and I'm ready to get started! Lots of luck to everyone!

Greetings everyone: I'm really new to the WISH thread. I would really like to start exercising regularly again. I used to be a runner, but I dropped off when we had kids (DD8 and DD5 (Wednesday) ). I really would like to get back to running again. It's been so difficult for me to keep up with it though. I've always had a dream to run a marathon, and would love to do the WDW Marathon someday. Maybe even do a half marathon this year in Disneyland or WDW 2007. I could really use some support to keep me going. Are there specific threads to support people training for the Disney running events?

2010 WDW Half Marathon; Mickey's Halloween 5K; Wine&Dine Half Marathon
2009 WDW Half Marathon; Muddy Buddy Orlando 2008 Inaugural Exp Everest Chall
2007 Marine Corps Marathon 4:28:50 PR (Thanks again WISHers!)
2007 WL WDW Marathon 5:05.08 (Thank you WISH Racing Team!)

Ok....there's a reason I'm here. I would like to lose weight the old fashioned way! I've done it the "pill" way, but I gain it back. I started running last year and felt great, but didn't really lose any weight. I stopped running in October (DW vacation!) and have gained 16lbs! I would like to lose about 25-30 lbs. I currently weigh 165 and am 5'5. I don't have the money to do WW, or join a gym, but I do have a treadmill.
I have 2 jobs, 2 kids and a husband...time is not on my side.
I guess my question is...how do I take the time for me (excersize) and not feel guilty?

Count me in! I've been wanting to lose weight for the longest time, but could never get motivated. No goal as of yet, just to lose some inches off my waist! I plan to walk at least 20 minutes a day and eat healthier. Thanks for letting me join up!

Okay, it's official. I'm no longer a lurker! I've been reading & learning so much from you WISHers for the past 6 months. My starting weight was 237 and thanks to your tips and inspiration I have lost 43 lbs since July.

I celebrated my ONEderland achievement with a trip to Disney World to do the 5k and got inspired to do the 1/2 Marathon in 2007. I'm secretly dreaming of doing the 1/2 in Disneyland in September. We'll have to see how training goes. I'm looking for others who are training with MFM. I also look forward to sharing diet tips with all you South Beachers. This diet works!!! Let's do this together!!

Count me in. We are going on our first Disney Cruise in May - only 12 weeks away. I am hoping to lose at least 5 but I'd really like to lose 10lbs by then. I promised my husband I'd wear a bikini if we could go on that cruise. So I'm doing 60 minutes a day 5x a week (TaeBo Get Ripped Advanced), also added 15 min of weights and target toning 5x week.

Count me in! The reason I'm here is because I want to loose a couple of pounds before summer, so I don't have to be that embarrased in a bathing suit. Seems resonable, right?

I walk to my bus stop every morning (Which is a pretty decent legnth) and back again at the end of school. And I bring two water bottles to school and end up having to buy more! And if it's nice out, I go outside and run around with my brother and sister for a while.

I've always wanted to loose some wait but was never motivated enough. Here on the dis I hope to get a lot of motivation!

I want to take the WISH challenge. I have been working hard and have lost 55 lbs so far. I started on Atkins and lost 20 lbs with that. Then I altered it some, kind of a hybrid between sugar busters and atkins, and counting calories. I then went on a very limited caloric intake (about 800 cal) (Iknow, not healthy) and lost some more. Meanwhile I have always gotten a lot of exercise, and had to increase to about an hour of cardio a day. I tried Weight Watchers and it was a huge bust for me. 3 lbs after about 4 months and gave that up. I am currently on nutrisystem and that seems to be working now, have lost 8 lbs so far with it. I have 20 lbs to go. I am DETERMINED to make it ALL THE WAY TO GOAL. I am going on a vacation to florida..staying at thr Royal Pacific Resort, and want to look really good by then. Its June 9th. So thats 4 1/2 months for 20 lbs. Seems feasible doesnt it? About a pound a week would do it. I am psyched!

This is amazing - all of these people coming together to support eachother, regardless of what diet they're on, how well they're doing, etc. etc. It's so inspiring!!

I have soooo much to lose. I've been "going to start a diet tomorrow" for... wow, going on two years now! I gained 80 lbs. with my daughter, lost 50 on Atkins, and then went off it and ate everything in sight - gained it all back and more!! Well, it stops here! I'm going to WDW for the first time in the end of May and I want to look and feel better when I'm there!

I'm going back on low carb, it's just what works for me. If any of you have any good recipes - pm me! I'm always looking for new ones! Then if I can get back to the gym on a regular basis I think it will all fall in to place!

I'm really looking forward to being part of the WISH Challenge and getting to know you all! Thanks for re-inspiring me - I hope I can return the favor!

I'm taking the challenge!

I'm not sure of my exact weight yet...will find out tomorrow when I go to my first WW meeting in 3 years. Lost 50 pounds with WW before, but got off of it when I moved. I need to do a lot of work before my next trip to WDW in December!

Hello--may I come in, too? I am eager to get healthy and fit. My goal right now is 15 pounds by the end of March. Then I'll go from there. I need to stay motivated and serious about this. I walk about an hour a day, do some aerobics/resistance about 2 times a week. I need to control portions, watch snacks, and stay focused.

Okay, I'm committed now. I have 111 lbs to lose, and need to bring my BP back to 120/70. It's not high, it's just another of my health indicators, at 128/87 right now. I joined a gym 3 weeks ago, and have done at least 20 minutes of cardio 5 days a week, with circuit training 4 days a week. I joined WW online 2 weeks ago, went to my first meeting this week, and had already dropped 8 lbs on weigh-in...im psyched! Now I have to learn to control portions (this is my weakest point), and continue the rigorous workout schedule. Can use all the support and success stories I can get!

Count me in 100%!

I had lost roughly 80 lbs. last year. I gained back a little (okay about half) and couldn't handle it...have already taken 11 lbs. back off and am back to being down roughly 50 lbs. from where I first started. Today starts my path to the next 50 lbs.) before I go back to WDW in June!

I am so glad I asked in another thread about this. I am excited to have the support of my fellow Dis friends!

Once again with this time I am going to limit my calories to 1000 a day as well as carbs. NO BREAD, POTATOS, BUTTER, OR SUGAR. No eating after 7:30 PM and no snacking during the day. (This was a diet plan that a doctor in my local area assigned me.) It works if you work it and stick with it! Plus, EXERCISE EVERYDAY!
