QOTD -- What is your favorite Disney song? It can be from a park, movie, play, etc.

Wow, I love so many of them, but I think I have to say my favorite is "Once Upon A Dream" from Sleeping Beauty. I've always said that is the song I would dance to at my wedding...still waiting for that...haven't run into my prince with "that gleam" in his eye!

QOTD -- What is your favorite Disney song? It can be from a park, movie, play, etc.

Disney has so many great songs, but my favourite is "The Bare Necessities"!

Its a lazy Sunday morning for me. I got to slip in a bit after staying up way too late playing Dr Mario with DH. Its a stat holiday tomorrow, and it feels so good to take some time to just relax.

My favorite Disney song is "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. I'm so glad I checked in here today. I was about to blow off my workout because it's late in the day and I haven't done anything, but it's just a walk today so there's no reason not to take it.

I had an accident with a clam plate and twizzlers last night. I did contain it to one meal, so I'm considering that progress. But, I consciously chose to eat it, so I have to live with the consequences. On the bright side, we have a good menu plan for this week, so it shouldn't be too hard to stick to it.

It is great to read everyone's summer plans. I am already looking forward to the long weekend for Memorial Day, that's when summer really kicks off for us.

Maria

My favorite Disney song.... I hope this doesnt make me sound depressing. But my favorite is "I will go flying no more" from Toy Story. It's just such a profound moment where ignorance is no longer bliss. And it make you finally see Buzz as a real person & start to love him. OK, ok, I may love Disney movies waaaaaayyyyyy too much.

My favorite motivational Disney song, however, is I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan. I have it on my MP3 player & when I really want to stop running & just walk I play it and it makes me keep running imagining Mulan trying to get to the top of that pole with just those ropes with the weights on the ends. Ya know what I mean? I identify with Mulan a lot anyway so maybe that's why.

(Be a man)
We must be swift as
the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force
of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength
of a raging fire
Mysterious as the
dark side of the moon

Oh, and I love what all the people training say too:

I'm never gonna catch my breath
Say goodbye to those who knew me
Boy, was I a fool in school for cutting gym
This guy's got 'em scared to death
Hope he doesn't see right through me
Now I really wish that I knew how to swim


I can totally identify with I'm never gonna catch my breath and Boy, was I a fool in school for cutting gym when I'm trying to run!

Today's QOTD is a two part question. Tell us a little about yourself and your goals for this challenge.

Hi, I'm Jessica. I've tried to do a few of these challenges before but, they didn't last. Hopefully the QOTD will keep me motivated to come check-in. I really want to lose 5-10 pounds before my June trip to the World. I want to try to look more toned.

QOTD -- What are your plans for the summer? How will your plans help or hinder your goals for this challenge?

My summer starts with an amazing 7 day trip to Disney World. The rest of my summer looks to be pretty much staying local. I will defiently be eating on vacation, but I'll be doing a lot of moving too. I hope it will kind of equal out.

QOTD -- What is your favorite Disney song? It can be from a park, movie, play, etc.

I love "We Go On" from Illuminations and the music from "Wishes" they both make me teary-eyed. On a less sappy note I like the Tiki Room Song.

QOTD -- What are your plans for the summer? How will your plans help or hinder your goals for this challenge?

Leaving for WDW June 20, and my hindrance is that we are on the DDP. How can I turn down those desserts? After our 7 days at WDW we aren't coming home, we're heading to Ohio for the next week to visit family. IT will be a little easier to get on track with the diet there, but eating out and traveling are always a challenge for me.

Next QOTD - fav Disney song: Hakuna Matata! It means no worries, for the rest of your days...

Here are the lyrics:

Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

Why, when he was a young warthog...
When I was a young wart hoooog!
Very nice.
Thanks!
He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savannah after every meal
I'm a sensitive soul, though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind
And oh, the shame
(He was ashamed!)
Thoughta changin' my name
(Oh, what's in a name?)
And I got downhearted
(How did you feel?)
Ev'rytime that I...
Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!
Oh... sorry.

Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
Yeah, sing it, kid!
It's our problem-free
philosophy...
Hakuna Matata!

Hakuna matata
[Repeats]

It means no worries
For the rest of your days.
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata
[Repeats]

I third I wanna be like you It's nice to be amongst those who 'get' you...
At the scottish festival a ladies choir sang for awhile and I whispered to a friendly older lady that they reminded me of the flowers in Alice in Wonderland. She asked me if I meant the animated one and said she'd never seen that. I just felt horrified. What rock had she been under??? Anyways my second pick would 'probly be Scales and Arpeggios from Aristocats. I used to play that song over and over on our turn table. The sad part is I was in my teens at the time. The glimmerings of early crazy cat lady I guess.

Thanks Lisa. I've been trying to drink a big glass of water first when I feel the need to eat and that does stop the craving sometimes.

we all have those days, and like you're planning, get right back on track and you'll be fine. It's letting it snowball that gets me in trouble.

You can't turn down the desserts, but you can make other smart choices. We did the dining plan for the first time in January, and I ate my desserts, but I didn't eat any fried foods, and I tried to get my water in, and with all the walking, I ended up maintaining, which was great. It's getting right back to program after vacation that messes me up. They were talking about this at ww on saturday, and my leader said there are 2 wrong ways to do vacation. 1. stick totally to the plan, and not indulge at all, and 2. go totally crazy and eat and drink everything in site. The middle ground is best- eat what you really want, drink what you want, but don't go crazy, and you will be fine. No worries!! Love hakuna matata.

that's awesome!!

I'd been doing good, and bought myself a box of the hundred calorie pack hostess cupcakes as a reward, thinking I'm on track, and I'll have one a night. Well, I ate the whole box yesterday. I guess that's one thing I can't have in the house. Today's a new day. Back on track.

I've got some catching up to do... I spent all weekend in bed sick and I'm just starting to feel like myself again.

Tell us about yourself and your goals.
I'm Vanessa. I'm 21 years old and my life goal is to work in guest relations. My goal for this clallange is to lose the 25 lbs I've been struggling with. I never had problems with my weight until I moved home from Florida in Jan. of 08. I gained about 30 lbs. I want to lose most of it before I go back in Aug.

My plans for the summer are to just survive. I am moving back down to Florida in the middle of Aug. (I check in the 19th to be exact.) And I want to lose some weight before I go back. I'm hoping this challange will be the motivation I need!

My favorite Disney song is either the soundtrack to Wishes (I know it's more than one song...) or "Your heart will lead you home" from the home on the range.
