Welcome Mariposa

I can relate. Ice cream is my weakness and everyone loves sitting on their bum, but from the looks of these boards, weve found some support.

We can do it.

Welcome to all our newbies! Onward and Downward! Best WISHes for success!

Normally this thread is just that, newbies making the pledge, but once in a while a fellow WISHer will drop in and say and and generally just let you know we're here, and you CAN do it!

I couldn't have gotten where I've gotten, and stayed where I got, without this WISH board!

I will not be doing a formal or named diet, just eating less, making better choices and exercising more. I hope to lose 50lbs by December. Thanks for being here!!!!!!

Hey WISHers! I am starting on a trek to eat healthy. I have "signed up" with a lady who does nutritional counseling and motivation. I need motivation, so I was willing to pay someone to keep me on track! I went yesterday and was weighed, measured, photgraphed and analyzed (body fat). I got some supplements, water bottle and calorie counter. So today, I have done a great job. My goal is 1200 calories (unless I excercise) and 20 fat grams and at least 64 ounces of water. Well, I went a little over and had 1255 calories and 21.5 fat grams. But, I have already had over 128 ounces of water so I know I'll get this excess water weight off at least! I am planning to go walking when I finish dinner. Good luck to me and to everyone here!

Count me in for the WISH challenge. I am new to this forum, but ready to jump in.

Ideally, I would like to lose 40 lbs, but I would be happy with 30. We are going on the May 2007 Transatlantic Disney Cruise, and I want to be able to comfortably wear a bikini by then!

My plan is to drink at least 64 oz of water EVERY day and exercise (walk, jog or swim) for 1 hour at least 5x/week. I already eat reasonably well with balanced meals and moderate portions. I know I don't drink enough water, and I need to exercise. Also, if I have a snack, it is not generally a healthy one so I need to make better choices for my snacks.

I have never done any sort of formalized weightloss program. I have always managed to take off excess weight by watcfhing what I eat and stepping up the exercise. When my 3rd child was about a year old, I stepped it up and was running 3-5 miles a day. A year ago, I fell and broke my foot in two places (not running, just walking down the stairs!). This brought everything to a grinding halt! The healing process was slow. It is only in the last few months that I have been completely pain free. I have not exercised at all for the past year. I now weigh more than I ever have except when I was pregnant. The pounds have got to go! I hope the wonderfully friendly people at the DIS will give the motivation to get started and stick with it!

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

I'm joining in! I need to lose 25lbs., but my first goal is 10 lbs by my trip starting the end of May. I've been changing some of my bad habits over the past 3 weeks, but I am restarting Weight Watchers today. I'm hoping to find the support I need here, since I never was comfortable going to weekly meetings and paying to weigh in. I'm familiar enough with the program to go through the process (Once upon a time I reached Lifetime staus...)

Good luck to everyone else!

I have come to the decision that I need to lose weight. I have tried so many times before only to fail. I have been sick recently with bronchitis so no exercising for me. Before that I was working 60 hours a week- too tired to do anything. I come to the realization that things happen beyond our control. Last year when we to Disney I was so out of shape that the walking really put a toll on me. We have exactly 5 months before our next trip. I would like to lose at least 30 pounds and be able to walk at least 5 miles a day. I have been going back to exercise, starting this week. I go to a local Ladies Workout Express. I went to Curves last year and after awhile of going I couldn't lose anymore. Ladies Workout Express is like Curves but more intense. The machines there are altered between low, medium, and high resistance on certain days. I believe that Curves stay at one workout level. On my non- workout days I am trying to squeeze a walk in between. I would like to get up to that 5 miles a day walking. I have started back to drinking my water and trying to stay away from the snacks. I have also began to eat more fruits and veggies. I feel really bad about the way I have let myself go. I look at last year's disney pictures and I look so big!!!!!!!

Today is my first day for eating healthier. I am starting weight watchers and I know it will be a struggle but I need to eat better. My problem is that I hate eating food...good food....I don't cook so it's just so easy to grab something quick. I am determined to eat better

My goal is to lose 20 lbs....

I'm in. I need to lose about 100 lbs. I realize this will take time, I am setting a small, medium and large goal. My large goal is 100 lbs. all together. My medium goal is 50 lbs. lost by the time we leave for our Dis. trip on Sept. 30, and my small goal is to lose 15 lbs. by May 30.
My plan of action is:
1. Some kind of exercise every day, walking on the tread mill, going to the gym, yard work, whatever as long as it makes me move.
2. NO MORE POP! This is a biggie for me. I love pop.
3. Portion control-I grew up being told to clean my plate, and I still do that today even when I am full. I'll still clean my plate, I will just put less on it.
4. No more eating after 7:00.
5. Drink water. I don't like it-but I am going to make myself start drinking it.
That's it. No "diet" for me, I just plan to start following these 5 simple rules. Wish me luck?!?
