I'm new to WISH. My newest addition is five weeks old so it's time to get back in line. Before this pregnancy I had lost 20lbs with WW. I put 30 on while pregnant and lost 25 of that so I'm 5 pounds over what I started at. That's not bad but I still have a total of 35lbs I would like to lose before our next vacation. Since I've been off work I notice I eat more, snack more and excercise less. I tried taking the dogs for a walk at night but by the time I can find a spare twenty minutes I'm just too tired. Once we open up the pool I hope I can excercise some more.

Hi, I am pretty new to the DisBoards and I just found W.I.S.H.
I think it is great that there is a huge group of supportive people out there. And it doesn't hurt that ya'll are disney addicts too!
Anyway, count me in. I would like to lose about 40-50 pounds. but I will be willing to start with 10 for now. (baby steps)
Now I just have to work on my scrapbooking obsession!
Good luck everyone!

Hi everyone! I too need to lose about 45-55 lbs. I have been struggling with weight for all my life. I am so happy to have found you all!

Hi everyone,

I am also starting this new journey. I need to lose A LOT!!! I'm a Disney fanatic also and have been to WDW 4 times in the last 3 years. I've realized I just haven't enjoyed it as much as I should have. With all the walking, it's painful and hard to enjoy. I'm tired of making excuses. I've tried a few times before to lose the weight, but have failed. I'm 31 years old, and I know it'll be harder to lose the older I get. So no time like the present. I'm doing the Weight Watchers Online program. I have another WDW trip in December and I'm determined to lose at least 45pounds.
Baby steps.

Sooz

Joining up!

Hi everyone. I have been hanging around at the Trip Reports board since I joined but tonight I ventured out and found this thread. Great job!! I am hoping to lose 30 pounds this year. I would like to have 20 of that gone by the time we take our family trip to the WDW in Sept/Oct. I have just about 4 full months to lose. So I am going for the 5 pounds a month approach. Unfortunatley it has been pouring rain, day after day here in NH so I am stuck inside. I need to get motivated (the never ending rain and cold temps have not been very helpful) so I am hoping that by putting this message out here on the boards and adding my weight tracker to my signature that I will get motivated. In fact as soon as I post this I am going to get down and do 10 pushups and 30 crunches!! Whose with me!!!!

I understand the frustration with the weather. CT hasn't been any better! Though I have seen some peeks of sun this morning. Let's hope. I need to get myself moving! Have a trip planned in September and want to be able to go all day and into the night! (Also, those pics from the trip last year were scary )
You all have my support. Let's get going

YAH!!! I get to change my clippie. I've actually lost 6 lbs. I will be having back surgery in about a week and haven't been able to excercise so... to lose this was a major feat.

Good Luck to everyone!
We'll get there together.

Add me to the list of new WISH members. I need to lose about 70 pounds. I've been fighting it for 10 years now. Looking forward to pay day so we can join the local county fitness facility.

Count me in!

I just joined WW online about 1 1/2 weeks ago..and I'm already seeing a difference.

I'm not being public about my decision to shed weight so it'll be nice to have supportive friends online

My first WW goal is 17 lbs. I've already gotten rid of 4. Yay!!!

Looking forward to getting to know y'all!!!

It's working

Thanks to my new motivation to lose the pounds by announcing my intention on this board I have lost my first 3 pounds!!! I still have a ways to go but it sure was nice to see my weight minus 3 pounds when I stepped on the scale this morning. It helps that the sun has finally peaked out here in New England a few times!! I took my baby girl for a 2 mile walk last night and then tonight I rollerbladed her stroller for a little over a mile. Whew, I never realized how "steep" some of the hills in my neighborhood are till I tried rollerblading up them. But I feel good that I am doing something and by the end of the summer I will be able to rollerblade the whole 3 mile neighborhood with no problem, at least I hope so!! Anyway just wanted to wish everyone some good luck with their plans and talk to you soon!!!! Don't forget, even 5 minutes today is 5 minutes more then yesterday. Walk up and down your stairs for 5 minutes or try and do crunches for an entire segment of commercials, baby steps will lead to giant big leaps and bounds!!!

I just started reading a book called Fat is a Family Affair about why people become obsessed with food. I already know what I should be doing, now I'm trying to find out why I sometimes don't do it. I'll let you all know if it's any good and if I gain any insight.
