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.
The biggest frustrating part about it all is that I really havent changed much. I do eat cottage cheese once in a while and I started that two one half weeks ago. But I dont eat it every night. Once or twice a week. I cut it out for 6 days and still lost nothing. I dont know if drinking more water would help.

You just got to love those Mickey Bars!

Hello Everyone...a new "WISHer" here. My name is Beth and I desperately want to lose 50 pounds. My husband and I are taking our 2 year old daughter to WDW in December and I want to lose as much of it as I can by then. I am new to the DISboards and just found this thread tonight. I would love to make some new friends on here who I can share my ups/downs with. Working out is hard enough but doing it alone is even worse. A little encouragement goes a long way. So...come on everyone who is in the same boat as me....we CAN DO IT!!! (smiles)

I am new here to the W.I.S.H. threads........

My daughter and I are going to try to start "eating healthy" together, as a team. My daughter is 13 and I beleive she weighs about 185 pounds, she doesn't want me to know her weight, but when I took her to the doctor for a broken toe, they weighed her and I snuck a peak without her knowing. She is at a very tender age right now and it has been the source of a lot of stress for her. My son is 9 and can eat anything he wants, he is very active, plays baseball, soccer, basketball, wrestling........... and it frustrates her that he can eat all he wants and stay thin. She has high 90's in school, including 99 in science and 98 in math, she is a great kid, but honestly she is very lazy. I take responsibility for most of that because I do not make her move.

I am 36 years old. I weighed in at 148 pounds this morning. My heaviest. My doctor says I should weigh between 128-135. Unfortunately, my taste buds are fussy (like my daughters). We eat meat and potatoes with some vegetables. Soda is an issue for us. Mountain Dew is an addiction that I have passed on to my poor daughter......... AWFUL i know........ But i did stop buying it when I get groceries and she has been drinking a lot of bottled water for the past couple months. But it hasn't made an effect on her weight thus far. I need motivation for her AND me. I am the mother buying the groceries, and I can control what she takes in, so that is my goal here. We are going to Disney May 3 - 10 2006. We have 282 days to "get healthier" and hopefully lose some weight in that process........... W.I.S.H me luck everyone ! If she will let me, I will try to post some pics of the two of us for a "starting point"..........

I thought about joining a weight watchers group or something similiar but she is very modest when it comes to her weight and I think the DIS W.I.S.H. boards just might be the answer for her, and me hopefully !

Good luck to all of you.............
me and DH DD19 DS15

Glad to be here!!!

I am pledging to walk after work every day the weather permits.
I will keep my ww journal every day, because when I do that, I always eat much healthier.
Lastly, after my son goes to bed I will only have one snack per night, instead of snacking all night long.
Thanks to all for the support.
I am looking for some motivation. I took this challenge in may, and just read my post, and want to recommit myself to it. I have been journalling almost everyday, and have been good about walking after work. I have not been only having one snack at night once my son goes to bed, and I want to do pledge to try harder on that one. I also want to increase my water intake. My goal before my WDW trip was and is to lose 30 pounds more. In the past 2 months, I have lost 8.4, not quite 5 pounds a month. Here's to today and the next four months!!! Thanks for all the motivation!!! Good luck to all of you!!!

Hi All -
I am also new here too. For medical rand personal reasons I need to lose weight. I am about 190 right now and need to get down to 150. I have in the past had good sucess with weight watchers and I am going to try it again. We have a very hectic lifestyle so I just need to be more motivated to cook our own meals in stead of going out !!
WISH me luck !!

I've been visiting the WISH board for awhile now but didn't realize until today that I never "took the WISH challenge" officially by posting in this thread! SO, here I am.

Started WW on January 10th and have lost just over 46 pounds since then. I am hoping it will be 50 when I weigh in next Tuesday (that would be a two week loss, I had surgery this week and missed WW weigh-in). We'll see though, I have been eating too much the past two days to get to that milestone this week I think. If not this week, it will be the next!

One of my goals is that when I return to the Poly concierge they won't recognize me! LOL! I have many goals actually, my dream goal is to lose 50 more pounds, but I have more realistic goals too, lol. My immediate goal right now is to lose 10 pounds in August.

Do you have room for one more?

I lost 30 lbs 2 years ago by exercising and cutting back on portions. Well, I've gained every pound back. No more, just the 30lbs LOL! I'm 5'4" and currently weigh 147. I honestly don't think I can maintain 117 but am shooting for 125 in reality. I go to the gym 3 times a week while my son takes karate. I do spin and body sculpting classes. Tomorrow I'm going to start my new eating and positive thinking. I have a lot of negative thoughts about myself that run through my head. I'm going to try to silent my inner critic and quit eating "just because". My son also has karate so I'll be at the body sculpting class. That's one good thing about his class being at the gym, I'm there anyway so I might as well work out. I've booked an October 27, 2007 Disney cruise with just my DS and I. I'm a single mom, in case I haven't mentioned that. I want to be able to walk around the deck and snorkel without wearing shorts with my bathing suit. I won't be wearing a thong, but I just want to feel confident and good in whatever I wear. I look forward to meeting you and us encouraging each other through this rough period in our lives. But, this too shall pass!

I'm new here too - and I guess I need to lose about 15kgs (about 35lbs). Got to start somewhere. I think I will be joining a local gym soon. Walking the dog is just not enough for me. Good luck to everyone else. I aim to be looking good for my Nov 07 trip to WDW.
