Hello all, just stumbled on this thread - haven't been on the boards much since we got home from Disney in September - just to depressed but now that we've booked again for next year, here I am.

I would like to 'delete' about 45 pounds before next August but I'm an up & down loser, you know, 1-2 pounds one week & then nothing the next even though I kill myself at the gym - I'm also diabetic which might have an impact - but I'm determined to do it, I've already lost about 32 pounds for March this year - not brilliant but little steps..... anyway, keep up the good work everyone xx

PrincessJasmine66 32 pounds is amazing! I am back on track from tomorrow following a week back at home eating and being merry when I suspect I would have put back on the 3 pounds I in week one x

Nine months to go and somewhere around 50 pounds to lose! I'm sure we can help keep each other motivated!!! I just booked and paid for our photo plus pass thingy this evening following its reduced rate and I am going to sure as heck be in all those photos, lol!!!

Hi

I have been sneaking a peek at this thread and just wanted to say that I started WW in June and lost 17lb so far. I thought it may be interesting for those that are worrying about putting weight back on whilst away.....

We came back from WDW this Thursday, after being there for 10 days, staying firstly at the BC and then at RPR Universal and I weighed yesterday to see that I have put on 6lb. This is my scales, as opposed to my official WW weigh in, which sometimes differs.

To be honest, I thought it would be more, as I ate everything, even 'fat' soft drinks at times. As we were on the dining plan, I had deserts too. I probably didn't eat as much as I would in the past, as I am more aware of portion sizes etc., but I still had lots of fries etc.

However, there were many times I could have taken the 'lighter' options, by way of salads, wraps etc., but I didn't!!

I am dreading going to WW on Thursday, which is my weigh in day, I am back about three or four weeks of weight loss in 10 days, which is a bit demoralising, but I think it will be easier to get off for a second time (she says with everything crossed).

Keep at it, it will happen! .

I have to say, it was lovely to be a bit 'thinner' this time, I wore capris and tops that I couldn't get into earlier this summer and with the heat it does make you feel so much better.

I keep slipping up so I'm afraid to weight myself haha. Definitely being good starting h this week though which shouldn't be too hard considering I have no money to mess up lol

Considering doing this 30 day shred thing that you can get on DVD which is supposed to be amazing plus you can actually watch it on YouTube for free!

Stoneyloon that's fantastic!!! Well done :-)


30 Day Shred is great but I'd certainly recommend getting hold of a couple of hand weights (2 or 3kg each) to add a bit more resistance to the workout :-)

No measurements today from me, my appointment changed to tomorrow am. Ill post as soon as I know anything :-)

No real weight target yet, I just want to get back down to 'normal' sized clothes....

You know, i think we're all doing fantastic & any weight loss is brill because it makes you feel sooo good! I was gutted with my first weigh-in after coming home because I gained 7lbs - I should say that I ate what I wanted when we were away, didn't deprive myself of anything at all, but getting back on the scales I wondered if it was worth it, but its only taken me 6 weeks to lose that 7lbs & I'm back & ready to go start again but its hard so any support will be great - i think we can all help each other

Weigh in today, after the excesses of last week delighted to say I am a quarter of a pound down (will translate that as stayed the same, lol.)

Time to 'D' day = 38 weeks
Weight lost = 3 pounds
Still to lose = 48 pounds

Hope everyone is doing ok. Good luck this week x

Well folks, today is my birthday and my wonderful BF has bought me a juicer and heart rate monitor so these thigns are going to help my weight loss journey!!

Still not been weighed or measured, but my jeans seem to fit me right away as soon as they have been washed and dryed - no more awkwards pulling and tugging to get them on and then praying to the jeans god that they stretch in time to look less obscene!
