I'm joining in!

I just restarted my weightloss a little over a week ago. I'd like to lose 2lbs per week until my trip in January.

I check my weight daily (helps keep me mindful of what I put in my mouth) but I record my weigh on Fridays.

My trip is 2012-01-02 and we're staying at POP. I've also been perusing the menus to make sure there are good options for me at the restaurants we've chosen. When we went in 2010 my trip to Disney put a serious slow down on my ongoing weight loss efforts because I went so off track. This time I'll try to take a more moderate approach.

So...

Oct 19 - I lost 3.6 lbs for a total of 3.6 lbs.
Oct 26 - ??

My wife has just lost 9 stone, and is down to her target weight now, so it can be done. Keep it all up guys!

My advice is to ignore all the diet fads (she has done Slimming World, WW, the works in the past) and just do a calorie controlled diet. That way you can eat what you want, as long as you take account of it. It is surprising how much you can eat if you just select the lower calorie options for stuff.

I need to lose about 1 and a half stone myself, now though, as I've stuck a load on with travelling on business recently. Living up to my DIS boards name!

Michelin Man was also my nickname in my Sunday League team when I came back after a year working away eating on expenses every night, sporting a spare tyre.

I can also recommend the Libra Android app - it is one of the few that you can enter weight in stones and pounds, and also calculates a trendline to work out your average weight loss per week, and when you will get to your target weight.

Great to see so many other people who are motivated into getting healthier and fit for their holidays.

So many great results you guys have had (it's great motivation to hear your results and ways of getting to it and will be great to be able to have like minded people to talk to.

I have to be honest I know I will put weight back on when I get out there as the food looks soooo good, but as long as I don't go silly I'm sure that I can get it back off, plus all the walking around disney should help with that .

I just may need help getting motivated some weeks as when I first started to lose weight it came off quite easily, the last two weeks I've lost nothing but I've been eating healthily and doing exercise. Hopefully just one of those times when your body holds on to the weight, maybe the exercise it building my muscles a bit and therefore the weight might be going there instead... I hope so .

As long as I lose a dress size more I'll be happy, It will be the smallest I've been since before my two girls were born 3 years ago.

So good luck guys will check back in on friday to see how you are all getting on and will report how I'm doing too.

I'm trying to lose a bit more than I need to because of this haha. I know I'm going to eat EVERYTHING so at least if I lose a bit extra I won't feel guilty

I go in one week and I will be taking full advantage of Disney Dining! I will be straight back on the diet when we come back. I'm hoping that being active will counteract some of the calories.

I fully intend to eat and drink my way around the WORLD.

I lost 21 lbs before we went and thought exactly the same as you do that all the additional exercise would counteract the additional eating ..... and it did I ate whatever I wanted including funnel cakes and fizzy drinks and only put on 5 lbs which came off within 1 week of being back home and back onto my usual eating regime

Really good to hear this.

I think looking at all the food blogs and websites on disney dining is actually helping my diet, as I look at the food and think mmmm, but don't bother going and getting the bad stuff from the fridge, I just keep looking at all the lovely treats I will be having when I go . So pleased to know that others can eat what they want there and not put too much on, 5lbs was really great disneynut

Some of you have had some amazing weight losses, huge congrats to you. We have decided thanks to lovely, helpful advice on here invest in the photo pass plus as the number of photos we have as a family with our 7 and 4 year old is pitiful (largely as I am camera shy, my place is behind not in front of the lens). Next August the intention is to rock that photo pass and get bored of looking at all the many family shots we'll get x

So pleased a few of you want to join in, have a great Sunday x

I am a huge fan of both ww and my fitness pal xxx
I am also on a mission to lose 56 pounds. Good Luck to everyone in their quest.

I found that I lost weight whilst in WDW. I was on the QSDP and didn't deny myself anything, all the walking and the heat meant I was drinking water so much and didt really crave any bad stuff.

Even some mornings the cinnamon rolls didn't appeal to me!!!!!

Official fat club weigh in tonight (ahem weight watchers) and I lost 1.5 pounds and that is with only being focused since Saturday which I'm thrilled about x

Disney weigh in on Friday which will be 40 weeks and counting, here's hoping I shift some more! This coming weekend and week are going to be shockers as it is dh's big 4...0 and we are travelling back to see my friends and family in Yorkshire!

Good luck to all fellow Disney Dieters!!!

How's everyone doing this week? Feeling good so far, logging food on myfitnesspal but actually counting ww pro points as well. So far so good! First weigh in Friday morning before meals out Friday night and Saturday night (ahem!)

If you've had a bad week, tomorrow is a new day! Good luck all x
