I would like to lose 75 lbs to get to 150. I've started watching portion sizes.
I think thats my main problem.

I'm in! I am currently at 175 lbs., a size 12 and getting tight. I would like to lose 30 lbs. My biggest concern is getting healthy. I am recently an empty nester and now have that middle age spread. As you get older, it gets harder to take off.

Smaller portions and excercise are key for me. As long as I excercise I can maintain with no problem. The trick is getting there. (persistence!)

This support may be just what I need. We're planning a WDW trip in October and a cruise in April 2007. It's time to get it together.

Looking forward to losing together.

It's time. I have GOT to lose weight. I am so sick and tired of being heavier than I should be. I keep looking at this weight and thinking, "I don't need this. What's it doing here." I want to lose 70 pounds. So, count me in!

Well, time to sign me up. Before I had my daughter (about 8.5 years ago) I was at about 150 lbs. I'm short, but large framed, and my doctor thought I was pretty great at that weight (normal fat percentage, great heart). I never lost any weight after I had DD, and I've gained on top of what I put on when I was pregnant. So, realistically, I could lose almost 100 lbs.

Well, we decided to change our late Oct WDW trip to mid-Sept for the free dining. I know there are only 3 ways for me to survive the trip:

1. Remain submerged in hotel pool, call family frequently to hear about all the fun they're having in parks.

2. Rent ECV or convince DFiance (and friends) to carry me on litter (Cleopatra style).

3. Lose weight, start walking so I'm prepared.


Now, I'd get bored with #1, and while #2 sounds like it could be fun ECVs cost more than I want to pay and I doubt DFiance wants to tote me about. So, #3 it is.

Help me people, I love ice cream and sitting on my butt. This will be HARD!

I know this may sound like a stupid question, but how do I put my ticker in my signature.

I have tried it, but it won't go on. It just shows the html code. I did notice that the html code is "off". I can't seem to find how to turn it back on. I'm guessing, that's the problem.

Any suggestion?
Help!

Count me in, too. I'm starting today. I need to lose 70 pounds. Plan to exercise everyday, do WW on my own, and weigh in with 3 other friends each week to keep me on track. We're going to WDW in November and on a cruise in January. Would like to be well on my way by then.

I have to say, it sure is tough getting started. The first 3 days are the worst. I could be doing better about the excercise.

(My hisband has lost about 11 lbs. It took him about 3 months. When I look at him, I figure I can do it too.)

From my past experience as a yo yo dieter, i have found that tai bo kicks seem to be the best excercise for my stomach and hips. The trick is to do them consistently. In the past I saw a difference in just 3 weeks. I did them 5 times a week.

I am only going to weigh in once a week to start. It can be very discouraging when you don't see those lbs. go down.

I just needed to vent a little and check out the thread to remind myself I'm not the only one struggling.

Good luck to everyone.
keep those vacations in mind and keep plugging away.
