I'd like to take the challenge too. I already downloaded the December challenge clipart in my sig. I hope thats alright - if not let me know. I'm not sure how this all works yet.

I've lost 30 lbs since October 2005 - 4 months after my third child (dd1) was born I decided (although not all that into it really - only about 8-10 lbs) to try to start doing something about my "babyfat". She stopped breastfeeding in May 06 - on her birthday to be exact so thats when I really began my weightloss journey. Some women lose weight by breastfeeding but not me I held on to my round figure. I then lost 10 pounds by August when we went on vacation and then I came home and saw the pictures of our vacation and that motiviated me to get going (after I was done crying). From September to October I lost about 12 lbs and thats where I am now.

In December I just started some regular exercise - I figured I need to implement something to continue my weight loss and to get stronger. I am currently walking/running on the treadmill 3x per week for 40-45 min. each. I've started abs about 2 months ago. Last week I added some extra arm and leg exercises but have been very SORE! So I'm slowly plugging away at my weight. DH works alot (too much) and I only can really exercise when hes home - sometimes when DD1 is napping.

I hope to lose 15 more pounds hopefully for our May 07 trip to WDW. If I don't make it thats fine I am pleased w/myself thus far.

Not sure how many minutes to start out with since I just started. But I will try to keep up my current plan for December and then see how many minutes to commit to in January. Pls let me know if this is not ok!

Thank you!

I was totally inspired by watching the Biggest Loser last night and thought that if those people could lose so much weight that there is no reason I shouldn't be able to. I have been overweight since my teen years and it is now getting very out of hand. Ultimately I'd like to lose 75 pounds. I started today by walking 4 miles around my town. The weather is beautiful but I know it won't last. I'd like to join you all to keep my motivation up during this cold winter. I am a martial artist and do that 3-5 times a week, but I am planning to incorporate some walking and gym workouts on my off days. I really want to be healthy!!!!

Signing on! I need to lose about 30 or so pounds. I had done really well after having my son (now 2 1/2) but gained most of it back over the summer while my DH was laid off. Stress snacking is a big problem of mine. But, I am going back on Weight Watchers (without doing the meetings). I still am not sure how I'm going to work exercizing back in, but I'll figure something out. We have recently moved and no longer belong to the Y. I homeschool our three kids, so there is not alot of free time without them tagging along.

Signing on. Have about 150 lbs. to lose. Yup, to lose.

I am following the WW flex plan, but it is going very slowly. I am considering switching over to core - input from anyone who has done it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for letting me join in - I need all the support I can get.

I'm so excited that I found this forum
I'm planning a trip for late June-July and I'd like to loose a few lbs and tone up a bit so I can squeeze back into my Bathing suits

I'm 5'1 and at 120 (ahhh too many cookies & junkfood this Christmas!)
I'd like to get toned back into by 105-110 zone. So not too much to lose, but I'm always looking for new recipes and ways to stay in shape! Maybe this will be my ticket to success

I'm back!!! A prodigal child returns...I started with the 150 club thread tonight, and I need to get this lifestyle back in the forefront of my brain again, and not put it off any longer. I had to give back my weight loss clippies and then kind of disappeared into the woodwork - for a long time here - now getting the mentality back to renew my goals!!!

I'm a WW Lifetime member who has regressed after stopping going to meetings. I'm going to try this time on my own with WISHers help and see if I can make it work. If not, I'll make myself go back to WW meetings for the "expensive scale" that somehow strikes fear into my bones enough to keep me on track.

I'll make myself face the scale again tomorrow and start anew. Glad to be back!

Well Jen,

I can relate... I too am returning after several months of backsliding. I am now up to 180 lbs.... five lbs heavier than I was the last time I was attempting to take the challenge.

I have to do it this time. My dh and I took a Disney cruise last October, at which time I tried to lose 30 lbs before we left. (Didn't happen)

We have now scheduled a cruise for October 20, 2007. Guess what... Here I am again.

I would like to get down to 145-150lbs.

I see people losing 80, 100, 150 all the time and I am always so impressed with them. So, I figure if they can do it so can I.

Any tips from anyone to stay motivated would be a great help.

Good luck to everyone.

I'm joining in. I started WW online in February 2006 with the goal to loose 50 lbs. I lost 29 lbs before we went on our WDW trip the last week of September. I never really got back on the plan when we returned and then the holidays happened. I have of coursed gained some of that weight back but I have been too scared to get on a scale to see exactly how much. I have removed all the laundry hanging from the stationary bike and am back on the plan as of today.

Hey, count me in, would you? I successfully lost many pounds three years ago on WISH, but I'm back where I started from and now need to find my healthy self again!

My goal is to achieve a healthy BMI through exercise, portion control, and eating a healthy diet full of fruits, veggies, brown carbs, and lean meats. Right now my BMI is 31.

Here I go!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil. 4:13
