Ok I need to do this

I am at my highest weight other than being pregnant (and I am not pregnant ). I need to start eating better and exercising.

I am a mom of 2, married and have a fulltime job and my mom is dealing with Cancer and is very dependent on me. I spend my evenings trying to relax by:

1. Watching TV
2. Looking on the Disboards
3. VMK - just found and very addicting (I am glad they kick you out at 10 pm)
4. Reading

I have never been real motivated to exercise. I have been through the WW program numerous times. The last time I paid and went and didn't follow the program.

I was recently diagnosed with Low Thyroid and now High Cholesterol.

Any motivation or suggestions would be great. Thanks for all your help in advance.

PS I will go add the wish clip art.

Thanks to the weight loss thread in the theme park forum I have found this. I would really love to lose 100 lbs. So far I've lost 20. We leave for our trip on June 1 and I would really love to lose 15 more before then. I have been drinking more water, and generally just watching my portion sizes, as well as exercising each day. Even if it is just a walk around the circle with my kids. Good luck to everyone here. This may even be better than a WW meeting.

I would love to lose 10 lbs by summer. I am a pretty active exerciser already and trained for and walked a half-marathon on April 1st. I need encouragement from others to eat better. I plan on drinking more water, cutting back on junk, and watching my portions. I will continue my current exercise routine (Latin Dance, Kickboxing, Walking,and Strength Training).

I would like to join as well

I would like to join. I have 100+ to lose. I weigh 270 now and am only 5'. I would like to lose as much as possible by October 2007. Is this realistic? I am going to join WW, and do the "Walking to Disney challenge" as well. My home is 1028.7 miles from All-Star Movies (Which is where I will stay next trip). My Family Lives in Tampa and is bribing me with a possible WDW trip if I can do this.... I need to...

Any Help is welcome!

I think that is a very realistic goal, and very achiveable if you follow WW. The healthy weight loss is 2 lbs a week, so if you did stay at a steady 2 lbs a week, in 52 weeks you will lose 104lbs. You have over 52 weeks, so you can def. do it if you put your mind to it. Set small goals for yourself. Do not look at it as 100lbs, take it in small chunks, like 10lbs at a time, and when you hit your MINNIE goals, treat yourself to something(non-food related of course!!) Maybe a manicure, pedicure, a new outfit, etc...

Also make sure you get in your water for the day!!! It is so important!!! I always say whatever your weight is divide that in half, and that is how much water you should try for in oz's in a day..so you say your weight is 270 divide that in half and that is 135, so you should shoot for 135oz. of water a day. I know it sounds like alot, but it will really help in the weight loss. WW sells cups at their meetings for $5.50. When I first joined I bought one, now I carry it with me EVERYWHERE I go, I mean I take it to the store with me, to church, anywhere I go my cup is with me, and then I just sip it all day, and before you know I have finished 3 sups worth...it hold 34oz.

Anyway, good luck, and you can do it!!!!!

WOW, we have really picked up some new dis wishers. Welcome everyone. I haven't been on here much this past week.

I have been walking daily and doing tai bo. I've only lost about 1 lb., but I know I'm building muscle and it weighs more than fat. I'm not getting discouraged though because my pants are feeling looser in the bum and the legs. So, it must be working. This nice spring weather motivates me. Anyone who lives in the north can appreciate that.

It doesn't matter how much you have to lose, 20 lbs or 100 lbs, it's a struggle. Just remember we are all feeling the same thing.

We can do it and Mickey is going to love us!

Good luck to all.

sign me up

I am about 10lbs heavier than my ideal weight and would like to lose this by summer. I started the abs diet yesterday and have been doing power yoga for about 2 weeks. I also plan on upping my cardio and training with weights again. I worked out a lot last year but missed a few weeks and just got in a rut. My biggest challenge will definitely be eating well and making healthy eating a lifestyle change. Good luck to everyone.

Hi I am new here.. I want to join the challenge. I started my journey on January 26, 2005 at 296.5 lbs. I got down to 189 for my first trip to the World in early February. Since then I have been spiraling out of control. I am back up to 236 (holy crap thats 50+ pounds in 3 months ) none of my clothes fit, I've been eating just about anything and horribly large amounts. I went from exercising 3 hours a day 6 days a week to zilch! I really need to get motivated again.

I will re-start my exercise today! I will get on the treadmil tonight during Survivor and I will get up for my morning exercise tomorrow morning. Foodwise, I will be heading to the market over the weekend and I am back to my 1200 calories, 3 lean proteins daily, 2 high fiber starch, 1 healthy fat, 1 low fat dairy 2 fruit and lots of veggies and back to my 100+ ounces of water daily.

Welcome...
Boy, can I relate to that. I have done my share of yoyo dieting. I'm almost afraid to go on vacation anymore. I have trouble getting back in to the excercise when I come back.

Good luck to you. We can do it.

Hi

Hi! I'm new to the DIS and I really want to join here! I have 100 lbs to lose. I'm sick of being sick and fat!!!!! I will be eating sensibly and walking a minimum of 30 minutes a day, every day! One cup of coffee in the morning and then water water water! As much as I'm looking forward to my upcoming Disney trip it makes me sad that I'm going this heavy. Here's to new beginings! Going now to add the DIS WISH clip art.

Talking A dream is a W.I.S.H. your heart makes....

I weigh 255 lbs and hubby weighs 300. We drive truck cross country and sit on our fanny's all day long. I pledge to myself that I will park at the back of the parking lot and walk further. I will also do my TurboJam videos (MY NEW LOVE) daily, even if I only have time for the 20 min workout. I want to be healthy and beautiful.

SIPPORA HI! I have 100lbs to lose as well. Just go slow, that's the only way you will keep it off. And remember, Disney World is the only place on earth that everyone large or small is treated the same. Good Luck!

My goal is to lose 50 pounds by going to the gym at least 4 times a week, and modifying my diet to include less carbs and more fresh fruits and veggies.
