OK so heres the hope: I would like to get to healthy weight and feel healthy again. I am planning on exercising daily no matter how silly I look or how frightening I sound.

I am feel good aobut my insides I just want the outside to match. I would really love to WOW my husband again honestly!

ANyway my short term goal is for April ideally it is alot to tackle but would dream of losing 60 lbs by then. My long term dream would be 99 lbs to be achieved by Christmas.

I want to let go of the negative self image and feel good about what I see in the mirror!

OK so got started by a Dr check up today all good to goa nd rode my exercise bicycle for 30 minutes so off I go.........................

Hi everyone, can I join?

I'd like to lose around 65-70 pounds. I've already lost 15 in the past year on LA Weightloss but I'm ready to step it up a notch. My motivation is a Disney trip in July. I really want to be able to visit the waterparks and wear shorts in the parks. Also, we always stay at the Beach Club and I've never visited the pool because I'm too embarassed to put on a bathing suit. So that's my goal!

Hey all, I'm in. I want to make positive changes to my lifestyle, to live long and be healthy for myself, husband and daughter. Over the years I have fought this battle and been riding the worst ride of my life, the YO-YO. It's time to get off that ride and on to better ones. This past December, I decided it was time to do something about my weight before I do irreversible damage (already have some, but with loses they will get better). December 30, yes before the big parties of the New Year I joined lawl, I need a lot of encouragement and to know I HAVE to face someone about it. Don't want to be embarrased you know. Two hurdles down (starting, and and working the program on New Years Eve) millions more to go. As I stated my plan is to use lawl, go one day at a time and begin a water fitness class. Leaner, meaner me, here I come.

I have to laugh, I finally get myself in gear to get myself back to WISH, and I get on the scale to see what the "damage" is that needs to get fixed...wouldn't you know it, my scale's batteries are dead!!!! ROFL!

I'll have to get my goal set once I get a pack of Energizers!

Quiet today

Everyone must be excercising...
I've been hitting the pilates trail and using my weights. Who would have guessed that pilates could work so well. It's amazing how good you feel when you start feeling those sore muscles. I feel like I'm accomplishing something.

I was actually down 2 lbs. this morning. I'm sure it's just water, but I'll take it.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Robin

Well not to brag but kudos to me, I started an exercise program today for the first time in about 8 years. It's two days a week of aquajog, but I'm doing something.

Robin - way to be motivated.

Jen - you've got the right mind set. Hope you find that bunny (energizer that is) real soon.

RSox - Welcome, and I just started LA myself.

Fidge - I'm working on my first "small" goal is 60lbs. I haven't set a date but I know I'll do it. My long term goal however is well over you 99lbs but yet to be determined.

Lorli,

Thank you for responding. I thought I was all alone.

We need to get some dialog going to keep everyone motivated and excercising.

I decided to start doing Tae-bo in addition to pilates. I used to do Tae-bo a few years ago and found my arms looking sculpted within 3 wks. It is also the only thing that seemed to get rid of my hips and saddlebags. (We all know how much we'd love that.)

I know many of you have vacations planned, so "Let's get Motivated."

I'm cruising (DCL) in Oct. of this year so I'm going to...

"Lose for the Cruise"

Let's Go!

Robin

I, too, need to do something. I am thinking about following the Body for Life program. Tried once before - I know it can work and I feel really sore after lifting dumbbells. The soreness is usually worst in the beginning but really lets me know I am making big changes in my body. I also want to walk around WDW wearing shorts. I want to go to a waterpark with my kids and think about what fun they are having rather than how fat I am. I want to lose about 60 pounds and hope I can get rid of most of the damage by the summer. I feel like I say the same thing every year, but I really need to make serious changes and need to "come through" for myself this time.

I want in! I signed up for the Minnie Marathon today. I have been so inspired reading about the Marathons this month. I have recently started walking/running again after having a baby (ok, he's 9 months old, but I've been really, really tired LOL). In an ideal world, I'd love to do Goofy in 2008.

Keep the stories coming.

I'm taking the challenge

I will be going to WDW again in early December 2007 and my goal is to lose around 80 lbs by then. I have lost that much before (for my wedding in Oct. 2004) but gained it all back The good news is that I know I can do it. I actually started last Thursday, so my first weekly weigh in will be tomorrow. I'm doing the Weight Watchers points program. I'm not attending meetings, just doing it on my own with some help from my Momma (susiejane) and Granny who are the ones going to WDW with me. I'm also trying to talk my husband into doing a 7 night cruise in September. We did the 4 night in September 2003 and loved it....it's actually where he proposed, after we ate at Palo's. So, I have a lot of motivation to lose for those two trips. If that isn't enough, I want to get pregnant and want to (need to) be healthy first.

I am starting today

I have just satrted my diet today. I am 154 and my goal weight is 130 although my secret goal weight is 120 or a bit less. I am doing a mix between atkins/southbeach both are very similar during first phase so
NO CARBS and will take a vitamin and walk on tredmill as often as I can.

Hi ladies. Joining in the WISH challenge. I also joined the Easter challenge. My goal is 15 pounds, starting today at 155. I will challenge myself to get back on the wagon with eating better and going to the gym to walk on the treadmill. I really enjoy the treadmill and am so proud of myself when I do it, so why do I not make myself go??? I was doing really well before Thanksgiving, going 2-3 evenings a week, right after work having my babysitter keep my daughter an extra hour. I guess it is just tough establishing new habits but I really need to do this for me!! I think I will go try to call the sitter right now and get it set up for Monday and Tuesday...already have other things going on the other nights of the week. Gotta start somewhere!!

Okay so I'm signing on! I started "dieting" on Jan 6th when I signed up for "biggest loser" at work. I've lost 7lbs as of the 20th. And I've been a gym member for a week. I'm exercising 4times/week. 30min of cardio on the treadmill/bike and some machines to help firm the unfirmable! I've a LOOOONG way to go but this is the start.

Ok, I'm joining WISH. I got back on my WW points a few weeks ago, since I had gained back almost all of the weight I had lost a couple of years ago. I've lost a few pounds since then, but my goal from now is going to be 10 pounds. I want to be able to wear all my thin pants again! And I think putting the clip art in my signature will be a good motivator.

(I know that's not a lot that I need to lose, but I'm only 5', so on me that's a lot!)
