    Good for you! I'm following WW and I signed up for a St. Patty's Day 5K walk. We can do this!

    went to the Doctor's yesterday.
    I am down 15 lbs.
    My blood pressure was in a better place 128/80.
    I was having a difficult time with dehydrating because of sweating from exercising and having to take the water pill for BP. Didn't seem to matter how much I was replacing fluids. Doctor cut water pill dose in half, hope that helps.
    I have 85 lbs left to lose.
    Cruise is in 3 weeks. I have made a plan to exercise in the mornings. Limit myself to one soda a day. Choose a moderate breakfast and lunch. Use the stairs.
    I have already scheduled an appointment with a fitness trainer for the week I get back so that I can get back in the swing of things.
    Need to stay strong.

    I've started working on getting better! I picked up Jeff Galloway's 5K running program app for my phone and am finishing up week 2. I have a baby goal of running any 5K at my current pace of SLOW and the W&D 5K at the Disney recommended maximum pace of 15 min/mile this year! I also have a someday goal of either the Princess or Tinkerbell Half Marathon, but baby steps first!

    Good for you! Do you have trouble with that app? I thought about getting it, but read mixed reviews.

    You can do it. With your great attitude you stay strong. But remember even if you do fall, just get back up and live a new day from that point forward.

    I haven't had any issues with the app itself so far, just my body hating the regularity of it. I like that it tells you when to run and when to walk. I needed that, plus you can load your own music into the app and it will take the music and match it to the BPM you should be going on the runs.

    I'm finally back. I had lost 20 pounds and was still needing to lose 20 pounds when we found out we were finally getting to adopt. So we brought home our bundle of joy in June. So unfortunately I have been lazy since last June(only as far as exercise goes, I have been quite busy otherwise) and gained 10 back so I now have 30 to lose but would be happy if I lost 20. The last time I had run was in October. I finally got out there last week and ran and now its cold again.
    So my plan is to try to do step with my wii until it gets warmer next week and then its back to a running schedule. I've signed up for a couple of 5Ks and a 10K to make me have to do my running.

    As of today I'm down 35 pounds in 7 months.

    I am not new to wish totally. I have done a few of the monthly challenges and I'm over on the events/competition boards.

    I saw this thread this morning and I could definitely use more support and encouragement. I weigh 201 right now and have always gotten stuck on the way to onederland. It seems like Mt. Everest separates me and the other side.

    I currently work out 6-7 days a week and watch what I eat with fitness pal app. I walk or jog/walk, Zumba, aqua Zumba and do work specifically for your core.

    Looking forward to being a part of this board.

    Karen

    It sounds like you are doing everything right. Don't give up! You will be in onederland before you know it.

    Welcome!! :grouphug: You can totally get over the hump! I was just reading something about being sure to eat all your calories, so maybe that's an issue? Just a thought. You can do it! :cheer2::cheer2:

    PS Do you LOVE Kentucky? We hope to move there after we're done with school and I am so impatient!

    I just stumbled across this part of the DISboards and it couldn't have come at a better time!

    Backstory: I was athletic and active in high school and then I went away to college where I duel majored in aerospace and mechancal engineering and had no time to work out. I gained weight all through college. I got a job that required me to travel 75% of the time so I was eating out and working 80 hr weeks. When my Dad died suddenly, I decided I needed a life change and started to run to get rid of the stress from work and my life. I lost 60 lbs by making a point to put my health and workouts before work, watching what I was eating and giving up soda. After my weight loss, I got back into running, I had run track in high school and even went to States. I met my husband, got engaged and was motivated by my wedding dress. We ran the WDW marathon together shortly after we were married.

    So fast forward to now: We have been married 1.5 years and I have fallen back into some old habits, have gained about 20 lbs back and need some motivation. Once I had completed the marathon, I stopped training as I felt as I had reached my peak. My husband is 6'5" and weighs 170. He is a beanpole who eats non-stop. He is a 2.5 hr marathoner and eats like it. He is always eating and therefore I eat. Plus, there is so much junk food in our house, something I never had at my apartment. Hubby does all the grocery shopping and cooking, which I am thankful for but it is killing me! We are going on a cruise in May and lots of my dresses are tight or don't fit. I would like to lose 10 lbs before the cruise and then more weight once we get back. I hate the fact that I am back into the 200's again(in my defense, I am over 6' tall)

    So I am going to commit myself to:
    running 4x a week with spin class 2x a week and lifting.
    Stop eating when I am full (and don't keep eating just because hubby put it on my plate)
    Have hubby pick up healthy snacks (and hide the girl scout cookies)
    Put my eating habits in my hands and not my hubby's
    Elimate Alcohol

    hopefully this will keep me accountable!

    Those sound like excellent goals!! I definitely think it will help if DH knows you are trying to get fit. Maybe he can make smaller portions or you can use a smaller plate. :) Keep us updated! And have fun on your vacation!

    Had to stop by this thread since I hadn't in awhile and say that I've met my goal:) Started earlier this year at 136, as I'd been slipping into old habits since my past Disney trip in 2011. Back to eating better and it feels great. Original goal was 125 but stepped on the scale yesterday and was surprised it was 122. And guys- NO starvation involved. Three meals a day, especially breakfast! I've eaten a little junk too along the way, the key is simply moderation.

    So thanks again to the boards for helping me out. Guess I'd like to be 120 for my trip, almost there. After that, will just look to maintain. Oh and PS- first time I ever posted in this thread in 2009, I was 153. I've come a long way since then and the am thrilled! :D

    Terrified of starting this process. I am the person that doesn't set a goal without knowing I can achieve it. I'm not sure I can do this but I'm trying to tell myself "Baby Steps". I am 5'4" and 170lbs, two children (DD6,DS5), and I am in nursing school.

    I'm not sure how I am going to fit in time to exercise so my first goal is to improve my nutrition.
