Talking okay - I'm in!

Well here I go. I'm admitting that I am out of shape and need to lose weight. I need all the help I can get. I just turned 51 and have a wonderful husband and a 10 year old daughter.

Any suggestions on the best way to lose. Weight watchers, WD workshops, south beach - what do you suggest.

10 down, 150 to go. Doing Atkins, one day at a time. The walk around EPCOT will be some much more enjoyable next time! (I use this for motivation!)

Add me please

I have been doing Atkins but then took a break after my b-day and trip to WDW, I need to get back on track.

I saw a thread, that I can't find again that some of the people from WISH are shooting for the WDW 1/2 marathon in 2005.

That is my goal, I went to the gym at work today to re-register, I haven't been in years.

I talked with the fitness guru and he said that being able to walk/run the 1/2 marathon in 14 months was obtainable goal.

He showed me the pace for the 16 min. mile on the treadmill, I used to go faster than that for 5 miles at a time, when I uesd to work out, we talked about a training plan to get me going.

For me this will be the best way to get fit, I have such a hard time with diets but I used to to an exercise nut, if i can do it again the weight will come off.

Anyway here I am.

More trips than I can count/remember

Ready to take the plunge!

I've been lurking here just trying to get the guts to commit to this. I was just diagnosed with Poly-cystic Ovarian disease. One of the side effects is that I don't metabolize properly and as a result I am having blood sugar problems. My mom is an isulin-dependent diabetic and I want to do all I can to prevent that from happening.

I've been posting on the CB for a couple of months now, and I must say that this is absolutely the most wonderful group of people I've ever come across on the net. This is a group I fully trust for support! I have no formal "plan"....I just need to cut out the fatty foods and the processed carbs. I'm looking to lose 60 pounds by next July.

Exclamation Kiss this butt goodbye

Started training for the Kona half Marathon walk in Feb. Lost 20# and worked up to 6 miles then injured knee started complaining. Dr. said lay off and guess what came rolling back.....UGH! 20#.

Swimming did not have the same effect as walking so it's time to start walking again...not so far, not so intense....

My goal:

15# gone by January '04, 30# gone by June '04, and 50# gone by December '04.

Watch me shrink......

Welcome everybody!

Videogal1 : You have some great goals! They are also very realistic, especially with your walking program! Good luck and keep us informed of your progress!

Auggietina : Congratulations on your first 30 pounds! And, good luck with Atkins! I think it's a very easy diet to follow, and you'll find lots of low-carb support here on the WISH board!

Back to the drawing board. Well, not exactly.

My goal was 20# off before our Halloween cruise. I made it to 15#. Just back from the cruise and my weight is up 4.5#.

I exercised on the cruise but did not worry too much about what I had to eat. I did not want to miss any of the good food.

On to my new goal: 20# down by next long weekend at WDW in April or May.

Hi, I would like to take the WISH challenge. I will be "eating sensibly". My goal is to lose 50 pounds by October 23, 2004. I am very nervous and afraid that I will fail as I have in the past. I lost 70 lbs. quite a few years ago via Weight Loss Clinic but they have since closed their doors and I have now gained the majority of it back. I was never so happy as I was back then. I appreciate any help I can get from all of you. I also joined Curves back in the Spring. I haven't been there since July and need to get back in the routine. Thank you! Sandy

Dropping them pounds

Hi everyone... well, I just started reading this thread and decided to join the "Wish Club"... I have quite alot of weight I need to lose... I lost about 80 pounds but have put on about half... I'm not going to really diet like I usually do, however, I need to be more careful with what I eat and especially when and how often I snack. I plan on taking one day a week "off" so to have maybe a favorite dissert or a special meal, but plan on the rest of the week to be "good"... I belong to a gym that has an indoor swimming pool that have many classes for "water arobics"... it's fun, alot of work, but the hard part is getting back into the "habit"... I hope to succeed by my 25 anniversary in March... Thanks for this thread and support and hope that I can help and support others as well...
