Gosh, I really had wanted to lose weight for my cruise. I started but then I hurt myself (not related) and had to go through 3 months of physical therapy. Then it was Thanksgiving and Christmas before I knew it.
So, after the new year I started up again. My local YMCA is having a fitness challenge and I joined and am doing well with it.
My goals, yes, are to lose weight but what I really want is to get off of the high BP meds. My goal for the cruise is to walk in the mornings, at least a mile. I would love to do the Castaway 5K but it's probably to late to start training now.

My Wish

Hello!
I have lost 30 pounds in the last 6 month by making small changes. I want to commit to some bigger changes. I will continue to eat healthy and I commit to walking at least a mile a day to start. Hope to up that number but I want to start with something I know I will do. Thanks for being my witnesses!

Hi! I would also like to join W.I.S.H
I am starting off above 300lbs. This is the heaviest I have been, ever. I had my son over 3 years ago and I have just gained and gained since then. Diabetes runs in my family and I continued to ignore the risks. I believe at this point that I have diabetes (appt. In February to test) and I can feel the effects the weight is causing.

My goal:
I want to be under 200lbs. Ideally around 180.
I want to regain muscle strength in my legs and develop upper body strength.
I want to eat healthier with less carbs and at least 3 servings of veggies a day.
I want to be exercising at least 250 minutes a week.
DH and I want to run the Disney 10k in 2014, hopefully followed by a 1/2 marathon. So, as I get healthier we hope to start training.

My Plan:
We are purchasing an elliptical for our house. The gym, my schedule and a kiddo just don't add up to the kind of working out I want to do. So, to begin, at least 3-6 fifteen minute workouts a week.
Walking outdoors, weather permitting, at least once a week to begin.
Limited to one 20oz soda per day, replacing usual soda intake with water. NO DIET soda.
Pizza only once per week. Veggies three times a day, in smoothies or cooked with yummy researched recipes.
Limited TV/electronics to set a good example for DS.
8 hours of sleep each night. (No more than 10.)

That's all for now.

Hi Tiffany,
A cruise sounds so fun! I too am wanting to set a healthy example for my Child (DD).
I started out at a 220. The first thing I cut out was sugared soda. I still drink Diet but not as much as I drank sugar soda. I have cut out processed food as much as possible so as far as carbs go I eat high quality whole foods like fruits and avoid processed carbs such as cake or white flour pasta. It has been slow go. But I am happy with that.
I am having a green smoothie every day. Greens, water a little whole fruit some stevia for sweetness (oh my, do I have a sweet tooth!) I feel so much better physically. My knees and my BP are better. Lost 30. Now I need to add some activity. I am walking 1 mile extra each day above and beyond whatever comes from housework or regular activity. I want to increase that, I want to keep my promise to myself, so for now that is my number! I hope you love the elliptical! I believe that as we go it will get easier! You have my encouragement! Go Tiffany!

We are tickled about the cruise! I'm still trying to convince DH that if we take our son, he won't fall off the ship. He can't get over the weird fear of it.
So about your green smoothie... What kinds of greens and fruits do you use? I've been planning spinach, pineapple, banana and maybe cherry. I'd love your recipe!
Thanks so much for the encouragement!!

May I tiptoe in and join? I'm delighted to find this forum because I somehow manage to tie in my fitness goals with my Disney goals. Like, if I get myself back in shape, the cosmos will reward me with a Disney vacation. Or what if I lucked into a Disney trip but was too self-conscious to wear a bathing suit by the pool or at my beloved water parks? I love water and I need to be able to wear a bathing suit. I'm 50 now and at my age that requires work. I don't need to lose much weight. Five pounds would be nice but it's not a big deal. But in the past couple of years I've gone loose and lumpy. I know exercise helps but I'm a homebody and have trouble talking myself into going to the gym. I shape up pretty quickly when I commit to it so I'm making that commitment HERE AND NOW! Recently I've been having a lot of trouble with muscle tension in my neck, chest and shoulders and I know regular exercise would help with that too. So why am I sprawled on my bed with a laptop right now?

I did work out three times last week, missed yesterday because of a minor health issue but I'm going to the gym today. Thank you for listening!

Mrs Eyeore - I love your Disney/health philosophy! I too hate dragging myself to the gym (though I didn't hate it so much before kids when I had more control of my schedule). So i have an extensive collection of workout DVDs. My favorites are the Shape magazine DVDs (redefining and transforming and abs are my favorite threE), and Jillian Michaels. Plus some pilates ones. I also now have a treadmill in the basement which really helps, but I find that the DVDs can really help with muscle toning as well (sometimes more). good luck!

I am a crazy person who loves going to the gym, but I would suggest finding some activities you enjoy. Maybe find a fun class at the gym, or experiment with all of the equipment to see if there is something you like. You can also go for walks, ride a bike, or do DVDs as Figment is suggesting here. I love the Jillian Michaels ones too. They are very well rounded. They can be challenging for beginners, but they have someone adapting the exercises in the video. Good luck!

Thanks keahgirl8 and Figment1990! I actually enjoy the gym once I get there and I feel great afterwards. I'm sure it's good for me just to get out there so I really want to make gym workouts a priority. I have a few DVDs and I'll look into the ones you recommended -- but if I can give myself that kick in the butt to get out of the house I need to do it! I also like to run outdoors when the weather is decent.

As for my Disney motiviation, it's totally delusional but it seems to be working so far...

I'm gonna start doing hour long workouts at lunch and half hour workouts at home as well as eating properly and cutting the coca-cola out of my diet. Here's hoping to lose a substantial amount of weight for Disney in October! (=
