WOW!

Vol. 3! This year so far, collectively we have lost over 600 pounds!

Obviously group support works!

The Rules?

Not really ANY rules, but we DO weigh on Fridays. IF you are weighed on a different day than Fridays (for Weight Watchers for example) just post the results on Fridays anyway.

Don't post your weight (unless YOU want to) just the amount you lost (or gained). Also, please bold the number in some way so I don't miss it for my spread sheet. The BIG and RED version seems to be popular....

-5.4 pounds

If you didn't lose or gain, we call it being a "SAMER" (which is better than being a "gainer", IMHO)

Along the way we have mini-goals hosted by our very own thread-dude, Aaron (aka WIDisneyfan or WIDF) Right now we're working on the 4th of July goal.

If you are just starting, we encourage you to take your weight number and measurements for progress purposes. These numbers are for your eyes only unless you WANT to share with us. Some people feel "accountability" is helpful.

But it's all up to you. Pick a diet or even just do your own thing, making good healthy choices for you.

We can help as several on this thread are at goal or nearing there.

You can post as often as you want, don't be afraid of being a "thread hog" (funny!). Sometimes the posts are food-trigger related so it helps just to say: "UGH! Someone brought a plate of cookies to work! Give me strength!" (for example).

This is a safe place and we don't bring each other down. We cheer even the littlest baby steps towards being healthy :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

SO! Let Volume 3 begin!!!

When I came in from church at noon there were three small deer in my yard! They are so beautiful. They continued to sit for a few minutes before something startled them and they ran into my neighbor's yard!

Who is on their way to WDW next?

My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary next year but don't want a party. Mom wanted a big trip with her kids and grandkids and we seem to have settled on celebrating a little early by going to WDW the week of Thanksgiving. Anybody have advice for going at that time of year?

Hope everyone has a really nice day!

    Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

    Well I exercised today. Went for a nice long walk with my Zack and the baby. About 45 mins. Then when we got back I was energized and tried running, outside, on the sidewalk, around people, and roofers, and neighbors, and children. Made them stop in their tracks. Not kidding. I must have been a sight. I made it around the block. But that's a start.


    Then I finally opened my exercise ball I got back in March, and did the instructional part of the DVD.


    Hope you all are having a nice weekend.

    Wendy hugs and sunshine for all you do for us. Thanks for your efforts, motivations, laughs, and providing a nice place to hang with others who care and support our efforts. You are one fantastic lady! Love you bunches.:lovestruc

    Thanks Wendy!!

    I conquered the conference food for the last day... left for one of the sessions that I wasn't interested in, went to the gym (45 min on the elliptical), and stopped at home for lunch before going back.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

    Hey all! Subbing over here! :)

    I haven't weighed in yet! I am up 1.2 lbs. But I'm feeling bloaty, and I'm breaking out BADly, so AF must be on her way. Hopefully next week will be an improvement. I am planning to amp up the exercise this week. I want to see a nice loss this week.

    DH did some landscaping in our front yard yesterday, and it looks SO great! We have had a big empty mulch bed out front for 4 years now. And now it has plants and trees and pavers and rocks. It looks great! I'll try to take some pics and post them.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    Mony - Thinking of you. Hang tough, girl!

    Spent the weekend with a lot of :love2: and :hyper2: and a little :rainbow:. We were leading an Engaged Encounter weekend, so lots of smooching all around, and lots of talking. We left for a few hours in the middle for a memorial for the long time (26 years) life partner of a dear friend. We went to a party Friday afternoon(and ate) , then headed to the retreat (and ate some more). At the memorial, there was fabulous Mexican food (ate some more), then back to the retreat (and ate some more). I was a samer on Friday. I doubt that is the case right now. Walgreen's had the 20th anniversary edition of Richard Simmon's Sweatin' to the Oldies on sale for $10, so I got a copy and danced on Friday (so there's a little more :rainbow: ). I like it because it's real music you can sing along to, and I always did love Richard Simmons (good thing he doesn't have rainbow hair). The clown talk made me laugh. When DD was about 3, we were watching the Electrical Parade at DL, and she and I were waving to all the characters. When Dumbo and the rest of the circus showed up, she yanked my arm down and growled through gritted teeth, "DON'T wave to the clowns Mommy!" I have to agree with her.

    The deer at the retreat center were very docile today. I went for a walk, and they walked up very close to me. Such beautiful, sweet faces!

    WDW at T'giving sounds SO fun. Your mom sounds like a kick to think of that.

    Thanks for getting us started again Wendy!!! I saw the little "Service announcement" yesterday and was wondering when the new thread would pop up!!! :hippie:

    Looking into doing some more planning for the trip in Sept. I am thinking of calling Disney and seeing if there would be a price change to do half at POR and half at the Poly. :banana: Hope I can pull it off!

    Have a happy day all!!! :hug:

    GOOD MORNING! :sunny:

    Thank you Laura for the pm saying I was missed. :hug:

    It's been fast and furious here since the beginning of June and I've been eating like there's no tomorrow. I'm embarrassed to be checking in as I haven't weighed for almost a month. And I'm not sure I want to.

    Hope everyone here is fine.

    Could someone give me the highlights of June so far?

    HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    Hey Peeps!!!

    I just woke up! I was super hungover yesterday! My all girl weekend was excellent! Saturday night I think I polished off a bottle of Absolut Pear myself. I was trying to be health conscious drinking the vodka with sprite zero but i guess after you have 5 or 6 drinks health goes out the window!!
    it was a great weekend with alot of laughs, my fiance comes home from vegas tonight!

    on the diet front I have been maintaining for the past month. It pretty much boils down to the fact that i kill myself with diet and exercise during the week and then the weekend turn into a party in my mouth from fri - sun, typically during the winter/spring i usually only go out one night a week now with the summers and bbq & parties filling up my weekend it gets hard to watch. anyway thursday is 3 months till my wedding and it has gotten to the point where i have to start being strict on the weekends as well. i want to lose 10 more pounds and weigh 118 on my wedding day, the only way that will happen is if i cool it with the drinking and eating on the weekend for the next 3 months

    on a positive note though, when i do lose the 10 pounds (see positive thinking works!) then i know I will be able to maintain base on the lifestyle i am living, i think once i lose the weight for good, my lifestyle will be working out and dieting during the week enjoying myself on the weekend repeat,,,repeat

    fortunately this weekend coming up i have stuff going on but not bbq so i should be able to be in control better!

    Melinda!! :wave2: You are welcome here no matter what... this isn't just a diet thread, you are a friend and we miss you when you aren't around.

    Lynda, I am looking forward to pics!

    I had a pretty good weekend, even with my conference. Made it to the gym twice (3 hours of exercise) and managed to keep from eating much of the conference food other than veggies, salads, fruit.

    I have had two people comment on my shirt today and how figure flattering it is, including my QA lady who was like, you have lost so much weight that the shirt doesn't even look the same anymore. That is always nice.

    AF is in the house this week, so I am not expecting any weight loss. As long as I can control the cravings and wait until next week, I should be fine. Here's to hoping that I see 5s in my number in time for the 4th of July....

    Hi all! First things first, the July 4 challenge.



    Too many blanks on there! Where are all of our Peeps??? I know I saw a few of you checking in, so did I just not see your weigh in? :confused:

    Hope everyone had a nice weekend. My father-in-law's family has a reunion picnic every year, and yesterday was this year's picnic. I tried to behave myself the best I could with food, but I will admit that I had one or two (or 7) of the yummy desserts that people brought. However, the wife and I went for a nice long walk around the park after lunch, and I played football with the kids for about 1/2 hour. So hopefully that worked off some of what I ate.

    The other new development is that I started the Couch to 5k program this weekend. I'm frustrated with my lack of progress lately, and since I know that I'm eating all right I'm starting to turn my attention to my exercising. I know that if you do the same exercises for too long, they lose effectiveness because your body gets too efficient in performing them. And I also know that interval training (alternating between max-effort and a slower exercise) is supposed to counteract that. And the Couch to 5k at least starts you off with interval training. You jog for 60 seconds, walk for 90 seconds. Jog for 60, walk for 90. You repeat that for 20 minutes, and then eventually you work your way up to jogging a 5k. I will admit that I "felt" like I worked harder after my jog than I normally do after I exercise. So we'll see how that goes. (Although, I'm a bit embarssed to jog in public because I imagine the sight of me trying to move any faster than a snail's pace is a little :scared1: )

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    I have one of his tapes. I actually bought his weight loss program with the cards:rotfl:

    That's funny and I agree with her too

    GOOD MORNING! :sunny:

    Thank you Laura for the pm saying I was missed. :hug: [/QUOTE}

    :hug: Everyone is always missed when they post for awhile. Glad to see you.

    Lynda I can't wait to see pictures, we need to do something with our yard too, too much green needs more color

    That's awesome about the shirt :thumbsup2 AF visiting me too this week, dropped her suitcases yesterday morning

    Aaron One day I hope to start this. I think I need to lose some weight first because I don't even think I could jog for 60 sec

    Hi my peeps :hippie: This weekend was an ok weekend for me. Saturday was my mom's birthday but we ha her party at my house on Sunday. I got a receipe for shrimp on the grill (I marinated in it lime juice, onion, garlic, ginger) and then I also made a fruit chutney. I got the receipe from another board I go on. I felt like such a cook :stir: I had small 8 shrimp (probably the size of a quarter, no I'm not joking they shrunl once they were grilled) about a cup of rice and then some of the fruit chutney probably if I had to guess a cup of that too. Then I had ice cream cake and I had a Jell-O dessert (orange jell-o and peaches with cool whip in a Nello wafer crust). I should have made it a little more figure friendly but I didn't I don't know why, no one would have noticed at all. Next time I will. Anyway back on track today. Have a nice Monday everyone.

    Happy Monday Peeps!

    Trying to make good and smart food choices today. And write everything down.

    Job hunt is at a lull. Waiting for some people who are supposed to be setting up interviews with places to call me. I think I will call a couple schools that I sent resumes too last week. Just to touch base.

    In other news, my mom and I originally were going to go to St. Augustine with our dog mid-july. With the job hunt, I began getting concerned that I may have to cancel to start work (which is fine...a job is way more important). However it is getting closer to that time and I think the dates will work out even if I get an offer between now and then. Anyway, yesterday my mom and I are watching Samantha Brown's cruise weekend special and decided that we should try to do a quick cruise. We live 20 minutes away from the port and we could get an inside or window cabin to save money. Well the dates didn't work out so the cruise is out. I joke "we can always go to Disney World". She laughed and moved on. So a few minutes later she goes, "what kind of specials is disney having?"

    :eek:

    :faint:

    :woohoo:

    So the planning began! I may be getting another trip to Disney in the very near future. Originally our dates were July 16-19 because I might have to go up there for a job interview that week, but I decided I could just go up alone if I need to and stay with a friend that week. So now our tentative dates are July 9-12. So excited! I looked into the dining plan but I just don't think it is cost effective for us when I can get Florida resident tickets and room discount. We'd have to eat $500 worth of food to just break even with the cost :laughing: . Now we love to eat, but $500? No values are available so I think it will probably be POR. A favorite of ours.

    Anyway, I will keep you posted on everything! So excited to think that in less than 3 weeks I might be in WDW.

    Have a great skinny day everyone!
