HI everybody!
I would like to join wish. I started WW online about a week and a half ago and i have lost 10.8 pounds. I think I have lost this much too fast, but I am sure my weight loss will slow down. I am not starving (well there have been a few moments of hunger) and I am using all the points on my plan. I want to lose about 60 more total. I have been cooking ww recipes which are actually really good. My dh and I are going to WDW in December so I want to lose as much of the 60 pounds I need to lose as possible.
I am so glad to find a support group.

If you need support, we're here.
I'm quite a bit older than you, but I know how tough it is when you are a teen.
Are you following a health plan on your own or one provided by a doctor?

Good luck to you kiddo.

Hi! I just found DIS last week and I started going to Slim and Tone last Monday. Tonight I found WISH. I think this will be a great motivator. I was in pretty good shape (never "thin" but solid) until about 3 years ago. I am only 25 and I'm at about 200lbs. I NEED to lose the 50 pounds I gained in those 3 years. I am already starting to watch my meal portions and fat and calorie intake, and I think S & T is going to be a great exercise plan. Has anyone else had success with that program?

Good luck to everyone!

I'd love to join all of you!

It will be awesome to have a great support group to be inspired by!

I just re-started e-diets and will work out on my stepper at home. I'd like to be close to my goal weight by my 40th birthday (7-10-2007) and this change of eating habits and working out is my birthday gift to myself! (It's easy to let taking care of ourselves slide further and further down our list of priorities, when we are all so busy taking care of everyone, and everything, else.)

Like Winksst, I'm not "going public" with my plans, either. So, thanks for being here.

Hi. I'm in.

Back on the beach. My goal is 50 pounds. I've lost 40, think I gained 10 back. I really need to buy new batteries for my scale......

My family will walk in the evenings together. I hope to lose at least 25 by the time we go back to WDW in late November.

Count me in! DS4 is running me ragged, and I feel soooooo bad telling him "You go ahead, Mom's gonna rest here a minute." We're going back to WDW in 2008 (isn't that a long, long time from now?) and I'd like to be a normal size before we go. I hardly exercise at all, but I started walking in the evenings last week. I have also cut out my Dr Pepper every day, and only have one a week now. I want to start small this time. I usually try to make a huge, life-changing weight-loss attempt, and always fail miserably. Wish me luck!

I'm in too, please.
I was going strong this past spring, but slacked off and I've gained back nearly all of the weight I lost.
Re-joined WW online this week.
I have new motivation, I'm going back to WDW next month, and
I'm hoping the pictures from this trip will have a slightly thinner me in them.

Just consider the last time you lost the weight as practice. Now you have a better idea of what works and what doesn't. I'm off with my DH to lead a retreat on marriage preparation. There are always way too many goodies. Maybe by posting now, I'll be able to stay strong through the weekend. Good luck to all!

Hi everyone

I’m doing the Atkins diet. I am on week four and have only lost 7 pound. Those pounds were lost in the first ten days. Since then I have lost not a pound more and I certainly am getting frustrated. I use the Atkins advantage shakes for lunch. Morning I have omelet or just scrambled eggs. For supper I make it meat, a low carb veggie and water. Once in a while I will do a salad. I do drink coffee with caffeine in. I also take calcium tablets, garlic pill and flaxseed oil every day. Can anyone help me out as to why I am getting nowhere? Im am so frustrated I am ready to quit.

Hmm, with the low amount of carbs you are getting, I can't imagine why you aren't losing more weight. I lost 80lbs on atkins in a matter of 4 months... I was very strict on my carbs and if I got to a week and noticed I hadn't lost, I would review the week and see if I added something that could be a staller and would cut it out and would start loosing weight again.

If I had the patience to do atkins again that's how I would be losing my weight. But it got so hard to have to MAKE every meal, I was getting annoyed. You couldn't go to the cabinet and just pull anything out to snack on for the most part. And I got tired of meat! LoL.

So my suggestion is to look at what you are eating. There are certain things that one person can tolerate and still lose weight and somethings that they call stallers... might be low in carbs but something about it just doesn't sit right and you don't lose the weight as quick.
