You're right, making it fun is the key. I use the stationary bike as my reading time, where everyone has to leave me alone and let me have "me time". Sometimes I read things to improve my mind, sometimes I read vacation planning books (especially travel books). I wish I was coordinated enough to go on the laptop while I'm on the bike.

Arrow New to the W.I.S.H.

I'm new to this all but since I started my birth control I've gained more weight then I thought I would. I'm really irritated I use to be able to eat, drink, and do whatever and since I've been on it I can't. I've been needing to start this to lose the weight by the wedding next September so I really could take all the advice and help anyone is willing to share. I'm 20 and I have knee issues and a slight heart condition (nothing to serious) so I can't really run but any suggestions just let me know. Thanks!!!!
(can't post links yet but I'm trying to lose at least 30 if not 35)

WELCOME!! I think Weight Watchers has a heart-healthy specific plan and, Leslie Sansone (tapes & DVDs) doesn't run. Onward and Downward!

Thanks! I'll have to check into those. My future hubby and I are going to do this together and we took a first step today buying some healthier food and trying to eliminate temptations from the kitchen. We both still live with our parents so we got stuff for my house and I was so proud to toss out 10+ candy bars & such from the fridge! We have started walking a bit every night after eating, now the next step is looking into some professional type of help.

can I join?

I weigh about 260 lbs and am looking to lose about 100lbs.

I do wonder when I look in the mirror how it all happened, the weight just seemed to creep up on me.
I am determined to try and do something about this, so on with the epliptical trainer, and forcing myself to drink 2 litres of water daily (ugh!)

any advice would be helpful, and best wishes to all like me who wants to be a LOSER (in pounds that is!)

cheers!
Ella

Ella,
I'm with you! I joined Weight Watchers in March at pretty much the same weight you are now and have lost 53 pounds so far. I am also a member of the WW on-line community so I frequent the 100# to loose message board. You'll find men and women (mostly women) on every part of their weight-loss journey. It is very inspiring. Do you have a Weight Watchers meeting near you? I go every week to be weigh in even if I don't stay for a meeting. I'm doing the core plan.

Good luck finding a healthier you.

Teresa

But my dad, being 64 and hardheaded as a billy goat, road 173 last Saturday and has shocked his sytem into, well, shock. Since he did that ride, he's begun to pass a kidney stone, gotten a kidney infection, begun to leak urine into his parataneum and developed an irregular heart rhythm. Just goes to show the importance of hydration and keeping your eloctrolytes in balance. So all this has given me pause. Seeing my dad, the pillar of my existence, hooked up to a pca and a catheter, is a bit disconcerting.

I would love to join Wish. My weight has really affected my view of myself as well as life in general. I'm 5'3" and weigh 210 lbs. I managed to gain 30 of those within a matter of months... and don't remember it ever happening. I would like to lose at least 20 lbs by Christmas. My overall goal is to lose 65.

My wish

I am joining the weight loss challange. I need to lose 30 lbs.

The plan:

-WATER
-No soda (even diet)
-No fast food (:C)
-Less frozen foods
-No eating after 6pm (I've done this one for over a year now)

If I get brave
-exercise

Is it unreasonable to expect this to be pulled off by the new year?

I just noticed my ticker is Gingerbread men and my signature is a Mickey bar getting eaten.

That cann't be a good sign
