I started the WISH challenge on Monday, July 31st (I thought I posted that day but apparently I did not). I am following the WW points plan but not attending meetings so I am thrilled to find this board. My plan is to lose up to 2 lbs per week, by following WW points and exercising, with a goal of losing 40 lbs by my trip to the Poly in December of this year. I have more weight than that to lose but that is my first goal. Good luck to all of us

I finally wandered off the Theme Park and DVC sections and found this thread. How cool!
I had surgery back in January to remove a benign tumor the size of a volleyball from my abdomen. It's been 7 months now, and I need to lose the weight I gained during my recovery. I did a lot of "comfort eating"-oh, I can have ice cream, I just had major surgery, oh, I can have cookies, I just had major surgery, Oh, I don't have to exercise, I just had major surgery.
Well, you see my problem. I could afford to lose about 20 lbs, but I really don't want to focus on the numbers. I want to concentrate on getting to the Y every day, riding my bike on the weekends, doing some skating and if I lose weight by doing those things-great, if not, that's ok too because if I'm doing that I'll be healthier anyway. I don't believe in depravation diets, because I know that whatever I try to completely eliminate will cause a binge sooner or later.
So, here's the plan. Mon, Wed-jog/walk on treadmill, circuit weight training
Tues,Thurs, Fri-swim fast for 30 min A.M., elliptical and
weights P.M.
Saturday/Sunday-biking, skating, b-ball-depends on
weather

For July, I worked out 22 out of 31 days, which is ok-but it could have been better.
So far this month, I'm 6 for 8. Again, ok, but not really where I want to be.
I'm joining WISH to help me stay motivated, get suggestions from others and to be a cheerleader for all the other members who are working so hard. If my love for Disney has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that we can achieve any dream with determination and courage and the help of trusted friends.

Thanks so much for W.I.S.H. I can't believe how encouraging it is to come to this board!

I'm joining the WISH challenge! I've lost about 20-25 pounds in the past year. My next goal is to lose 15 more. Then I'll determine my next step towards being healthy! I've been walking, and watching what I eat. I'm a teacher, so this summer has been challenging my eating--I tend to eat or bake when I have nothing to do! When school starts again, I'll be able to use the fitness center there, which I plan to use at least once a week in addition to my walks. Wish me luck!

Okay, I'll join. I'm at 200 lbs right now. I want to lose about 25 lbs by cycling 4-5 times a week. A pound every week or two would make me happy. So we'll see.

I'm signing up!

I love the idea of WISH and am really excited to sign up for it! I have been a long-time lurker and am looking forward to posting more and becoming part of the WISH group.

I want/will lose 60 by April 1st of next year. That's my goal! Lots of little goals along the way, starting with 15 by the end of September. So, we'll see what happens. Hopefully, GREAT things will happen.

I'm starting out with the 6 Week Body Makeover to get me going.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and posting lots and lots and lots!!

Hi Everyone! I have been on the DIS for several years, and just found this board. What a coincidence. I just ordered the Nutrisystem program for the over 40 age group. It is supposed to be here on Sept 7th. My oldest DS will graduate from college, and youngest DS will graduate from HS this May. I am contemplating making a big jump, and going back to college next fall. I have always been doing things for others, and have decided it is time to do something exceptional for myself! I am 41 years old, 5'6", and weigh 215 lbs.
I would like to loose 60 lbs. I have already started walking, and drinking lots of water. I have also gotten the stationery bicycle out of storage. Now I have to keep myself motivated, and use lots of Will-power!

Hi! I am taking the WISH challenge because I really need to get in shape, if I lose weight along the way that would be great too. My husband is deployed to Iraq and when he gets to come home for his R&R leave I want him to walk of off the plane and go "WOW ".

My problem so far is just trying to get started working-out. I have never been one to work ou, when I was younger and before kids i never had to worry about working-out or weight. I weighed all of 110 when we got married almost 12 years ago. I know that I do not need to weight that little again but I would just love to have a semi flat tummy and no love handles! I have had 3 surgeries on my tummy so it is my major project.

I'm holding steady at 195, down from 200 on 8/14. I've ridden the bike about 143 miles since then. I recommend cycling to anyone whose feet/shins are tired of walking/running.

If you want to stay motivated, get a non-stationary bike. It's like you're a kid again. I saw a re-run of Friends the other day where Phoebe ran through the park like a 4 year old, just enjoying herself and not taking herself too seriously. I think it's most important to find an activity that's fun and holds your interest over the long term.
