Hi Tiffany - I too am a travel junkie and since I have not been away for 2 years, I'm doing a big trip in November this year. My motivation is very strong at the moment and I am hoping that meeting others with similar goals will help to keep me on track!

Hi, I am Tiffany! I am a little under 1/2 way to goal weight. I had been past 1/2 way, but had a bit of backslide over the fall/winter. I am nearing (8 lbs away) from where I had been in September. I am getting married May 31 and we leave for our honeymoon in Aruba June 6th. I want to feel confident in my body and my appearance while enjoying the sunshine on the beach as well as in my wedding dress. I look forward to getting to know each of you better. I am a travel junkie and see myself staying a part of this team long after the wedding!

Hi Kim - 2016 seems such a long way off but it looks like you are well on your way. I am doing mainly Zumba right now as I enjoy the music. The chair workout is a little tough, but I am hoping to improve of I stick with it. Up until my 20's I was always very fit and active - that's what I want - not to be 20 you understand - LOL - just to get fit and be active again!

Good luck with your challenge!

Hi I am not sure if anyone is here, but this is my motivating goal so if anyone else has a vacation related goal - seems like the place!

I have an amazing 6 week trip planned starting November this year - so have 7 more months. My main goals are to get fit and lose 40lbs - 5 lbs a month is the goal and at last count I had lost 3lbs last month.

Am interested in joining anyone who wants to work together towards a common goal!

Hi, I'm trying to lose about 10-15lbs by April 30th which is the day that I leave for my vacation in Jamaica for 10 days. So excited for my trip! I'm only 5'2 so every pound makes a difference. I have been counting calories, trying to eat cleaner and working out 4 days a week. I have been focusing primarily on running but realize that I need to add more strength training in to my workouts so that starts today. Here we go!

My name is Shaunte and I am on a path to living an overall better life - this includes being healthy in all aspects of my life. I am planning to go on a cruise in October or November with or without anyone else. I would like to be able to actually wear a bathing suit. I look forward to providing support and getting it in return. emoticon

Hi, my name is Amy and I haven't been active on SP in over a year. My father recently passed away and it's been a real wake-up call for me to not only get healthy, but to really live life to its fullest while I can. Next April I'm planning a trip to the beach somewhere (we haven't decided if we're going to do Hawaii or Mexico) and then in 2015 some friends and I are going to go to Italy! I want to look and feel my best not only for these trips, but in general. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi, I have been a member of this team for some time, but haven't posted anything until today. I let two wonderful travel opportunities pass me by due to my weight and discomfort in my own body. I have a cruise coming up with my sister. I want to fly in peace and comfort without having to buy two tickets or even ask for a seatbelt extender. I also want to enjoy the cruise without worrying that someone is trying to video tape me in my swimsuit for You Tube hilarity at my expense. I joined Spark Coach and am hoping that the extra support will boost my motivation and application of all the wonderful stuff I am learning from SP about nutrition, fitness, and wellbeing.

Hi,

I'm new to this team.

I have decided that if I plan a trip to a beach somewhere, that would be a good incentive to lose the 5 lbs a month that I made my goal on Apr. 1st of this year. So, that's why I joined Fit For Vacation. emoticon

Hugs,
Charlie

Hi All! I actually have 3 vacations planned for 2013! All for different reasons...
Trip 1: Taking my oldest daughter to Virginia Beach for spring break.
Trip 2: Oldest daughter's graduation / my 20th anniversary-Bahamas @ the end of May!
Trip3: Taking all 4 of my kids to Myrtle Beach-end of June

So I really need to get this weight off because it's going to be a fantastic year for us!emoticon

My goal for now is to lose a total of 50 lbs which I have been working on since right after Christmas 2012.

Hi I am Trisha 53 years old. Back in 2007 my then boyfriend and I got to go to Key West, Florida. We fell in love with the place and the ocean and have wanted to go back so bad. Back then I was big and it was hard walking everywhere and of course my pictures on the beach was not the greatest. This year my now husband of 3 years and I are planning on going back in October for Fantasy Fest and I always said when we went back I wanted to be skinnier and more fit so I could enjoy the island so much more. I have 9 months to get into that new body. So excited.

Hello everyone! I am Jennifer. I am a 29 year old mother of a 9 year old. Next August we are heading to South Carolina, and I am looking to get into better shape before we get there. I currently weigh 220, and am looking to lose about 1-2 lbs a week until we leave. I will be seeing my best friend whom I haven't seen since October 2009. I told her I was going to look completely different when she sees me next! hehe I sure hope so! I have a very inactive job. Today I have been standing at this desk for almost 8 hours now. I try to move around, toe raises..lunges when no one's around...at least until they get the cameras back up!

Hi, I'm Heather, and I am joining this team to help me get motivated to be fit for a trip to Peru this winter. We're going to be doing A LOT of walking and hiking, and when I get to the top of Machu Picchu, the only thing I want to take my breath away is the view, not the hike up!

I'd also like to get a cute, new vacation wardrobe to go with my 22 pounds lighter body, so I look good in my vacation photos. I have a vanity issue, I admit it!

Hello, I'm Holly and am planning a "warm" vacation for the end of January 2013. I still have about 41 lbs I'd like to lose before then. Although I'm scared, I have pretty much decided that no matter where I am in my weight loss journey at the time, I will be sporting a bikini, so obviously I want to do all I can to be the healthiest and most fit I can be before then. I would just love to at least be in "Onederland" before then (21 lbs to go!).

Hey team! My name is Emily, I'm working to get my healthy habits back to REGULAR habits, not only for my future health but also for my vacation this year! A friend and I are looking to hit up the Caribbean at the end of this Summer, and I'm hoping I can shed at least 15 of my 30lb goal by then.

Hello Everyone, I am 47 years old, headed for vacation in Myrtle Beach next week. I started on SparkPeople about 2 months ago, followed the Strength Training and have found cardio on YouTube, been trying to eat well. I have lost about 8 lbs so far, that is kind of discouraging, but I know I have lost quite alot of excess fat on my sides and stomach area, have not measured myself, but I do know my clothes fit better. I am a single mom with 3 kids, their father passed away 10 years ago, heart attack caused by being overweight and high blood pressure, he was only 47 years old, I am trying to due what I can to be here for my children for a very long time.

Hello everyone! I've been on and off Spark for years, and decided to make some permanent lifestyle changes now that I'm an influence on my 19mo old daughter. I've lost 15lbs since jan but the last couple weeks I have really gotten off track (and feel awful about it).

I'm heading to Gulf Shores in June and I know I won't be tiny by then (or ever lol) but I really want to feel better about myself, have more energy and be able to really enjoy the beach : )

Hi everyone,

I just joined this team because it seems like a good fit for me, seeing as how I'm planning on vacationing in WDW in October. I'm 34 and 60 lbs overweight and I'm tired of being fat and I'm tired of avoiding the camera. I want to look great, feel great, and I want to enjoy myself. I've done the vacations where I'm miserable and uncomfortable. I don't want to go on another vacation like that.

If I don't believe I can do this, then I never will. - ME

Hi Everyone! I just booked our first family vacay for San Diego in June. I lived there for a short time doing travel nursing and try to convince my hubby to move there, ha. Anyways, we booked for our 6th wedding anniversary and it will be just shy of our baby's first bday.

I am setting the bar high, all I can think of is first vacay pics!!! I am shooting for an additional 35 lbs gone by June 15th, 2012!!

Hello everyone! I have been losing weight on my own for quite some time now and joined SP in the late summer. I sort of plateaued at 196 and got side tracked but I am back into it. I am planning a trip for late August/early September and would really love to feel comfortable in my own skin and taking pictures with friends and family. Good luck everyone!

Hi everyone! My name is Kesia and I've been a Sparker for some years now. Just joined this group and have made up my mind that I will have at least one major vacation every year. What is life if you don't make it worth living?! Recently married this past August and I don't want to look like a water buffalo in a bathing suit! I've done it before and I know I can do it again....so let's drop this weight!!!

Hi Everyone, just wanted to say hello. Love the idea a of setting some goals before a vacation. I am heading to Disney World with my whole family in June and would love to set a goal of 50lbs by June. Good luck to everyone and hopefully we will all reach our goals and have great vacations.

If you always do, what you've always done, you'll always get, what you have always got!

I had a SP account and had lots of success with it, but I got off track and decided that with the new year I will have a new SP account that I can really hold myself accountable with. My name is Sarah, I am 23 years old and newly married. I live in Massachusetts. I'm finishing up my bachelor's degree in Psychology this spring and currently work as a preschool teacher. I'm a really friendly person so please send me a friend request on here! I love giving/receiving motivation! I can definitely get on your butt with tons of motivation if you ask me to! We're a team, let's help each other out!

Hi Everyone! I'm from Canada and I've been to: the U.S., Mexico, St. Maarten, Jamaica, U.A.E., Dominican Republic, Bahamas, St. Lucia, Panama, France, Belgium and Holland. This winter I'm going to St. Kitts and I have a cousin teaching in South Korea, so I'm tempted to head there for a bit this summer. I adore travelling and find it highly addictive! Now if I could only look good on a beach... lol emoticon

Hey Everyone,
Nikki here. After spending last summer in Europe and now living here I refuse to be the one that "wobbles" at the beach. I don't care what size I am I just want to be toned. My husband is French and I am Australian. In Australia I had always managed a normal amount of fitness but winter here is crazy! I saw snow for the first time! I also managed to hole up in the house and as a result have gained ALOT of weight. We have a few weekends in June and July and I just want to stand on the beach and feel confident. The girls here are skinny. I don't want that, I want to be healthy and toned.
Goodluck everyone! I think we can do it with some determination!

Heading to Cozumel, Jamaica, and Cayman Islands in May! I'm graduating this summer from college and scored a free cruise. My friend and I are both trying to lose weight for the cruise. I'm excited to begin the journey. My weight has yo-yod my whole life. I'd love to finally have it managed and to keep it off. I'm also hoping to go to Europe next year and want to look hot!

Hi everyone, I've joined Spark People to try and lose weight to my first holiday with my boyfriend in July 2012. I am currently at my heaviest and really feel determined to get to my goal weight for when I'm going away. I have tried many fad diets before, but have obviously not worked as I am in the position I'm in now. This is the first time to a website like this so hope speaking to other people in the same position and also regularly blogging will help me stay motivated in this life changing journey.

Hi Team! My family is planning to go on a cruise during winter 2013. I have ALOT of weight to lose so that I can really enjoy our itinerary and even participate in some of the extra adventures offered by the cruiseline. Right now I am too heavy to participate in any of the activities I wish I could try (Para sailing, bike riding, and horseback riding). I refuse to sing this same sad song once it's criuse time!!! I don't think I will ever hop into a bikini, but I do want to swim without fear of ending up as the butt of a joke on you tube.

Hello everyone, just joined the team today. Thought I'd stop in and introduce myself. I'm looking to lose 69lbs by sometime in 2012. I have an awesome Italian get away vacation planned and its become one of my motivators; that and wearing a bikini for the second time in my life. So far, I've lost 11.4lbs since October 7, 2011 and I'm hoping to lose 10lbs by the end of November.

Get it right, get it tight.

My name is Katie and I'm on day 1 of my weight loss journey. My motivation to START is a trip to the Bahamas with my boyfriend in just 15 days. My motivation to FINISH is a tropical vacation next year where I can strip down to a bikini instead of trying to cover up and hide from the camera.

I just have a whole bunch of bad habits including fast food, potato chips, pop, and next to no exercise. I'm motivated to change these habits NOW!

Hi, My name is Amy. I'm 32. This isn't my first time on SparkPeople but it's been a long time since I was last trying. I had weight loss surgery in 2007 and I've gained back 85 of the 185 pounds I lost.

My biggest struggles are emotional and stress eating. Things have been getting more and more stressed for me at work and I'm realizing that unless I start making a conscious effort to at least recognize how much I'm eating I'm going to keep gaining wait. So I'm hoping that SparkPeople and the wonderful community here will help put me back on track.

Hi, my name is Sandy and I am 24 years old. My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on July 17!!! Because of my husband's business, it is difficult for him to take time off during the summer, so we decided to postpone our anniversary trip until October. We will be going to LA, and visiting Disneyland, Universal Studios, and my husband's Southern California hometown, of Palmdale. I am very excited to go and am ready for October to be here. Before we go, I would love to lose my final 14 pounds. Here's to hopin'! emoticon

I am 25 years old female. I am 40+ lbs overweight. I am very tired of being fat. Everyday is a struggle for me. For my height (5'7") I should be at the most 149. I can not tell you when was the last time I saw that on a scale. I can not get below 180s. The missing factor in my equation is dedication. I hope to develop this quality with help of SparkPeople! n its great members! Nice to meet you all emoticon

Good Morning Jodi,
Thanks for that geography lesson I am so bad at maps and stuff heck I couldn't even begin to tell you where 1/2 the states in America are! emoticon

WOW you have been there 16 years! You guys must like it very much, that was a big chance you were taking CONGRATS on your boyfriend becoming your hubby. So, did you know Spanish before you went down there or did you learn as you went? Did you take classes? How were you able to adjust to the culture, food, etc.? I am always fascinated by people who move to other countries to live very brave of them. I have lived in Texas all my life just traveled to other places.

Have fun visiting your family in the States. That is just around the corner and will be here before you know it.

Maria

Saludos, Maria!

I live on the outskirts of Morelia, the capital of the state of Michoacán. Morelia is nearly equidistant between Mexico City and Guadalajara. Tamaulipas is on the northeast border of the country. If you cross the border at Reynoso, Tamaulipas you're in MacAllan, TX.

I moved here 16 years ago to be with my boyfriend, who became my husband a bit later.

Hello. I'm Jodi and I live in central Mexico. I'm going to the US on Friday for a little over a month. I have been watching my calories and losing some weight (11 pounds so far!), but getting out of the chair in front of the computer is a tough one for me. I look forward to taking on the challenge.

Hi I am new to the group. My name is Maria, I am 41 years old. I am married to the love of my life, we have three boys (25, 22, 18 and two granddaughters). We both work very hard and we both love to travel. Though, I am the one that can look at something and gain weight my hubby can eat whatever he wants and stay skinny...sickening I tell ya! emoticon

In March I went to Zurich, Switzerland (when they say it is expensive there, they mean it!).

July 23rd I am heading to Hawaii for a girls trip (BFFs). It will be our 30 year anniversary of knowing each other. I think I am bikini ready but even if I was I would still say I am not! emoticon

In August we are taking my oldest son, his wife and their two daughters, our granddaughters to DisneyWorld in Florida. I want to have endurance for this one the girls are 5 and 9 and tons of energy, they wore us out this past weekend when we had them.

In September (Labor Day weekend) I am planning surprise birthday trip to Vegas for hubby with some of my sisters and their spouses. I want to look my very best for my hubby for this trip.

And next year 2012 we are "planning" on going on a safari. I can't wait for that one, but hubby sent me interesting article that they eat alot of meals on safari and not really active, so will have to watch out for that, they even have SIESTAS in the schedule, my hubby is all down for that!

The catch is that I have a hernia, blood clot in my leg, and I have to have a hysterectomy BUT I told doctors if this is NOT an emergency and can wait to have the surgeries in mid September after my last trip I would do that. I don't want anything to go wrong before my trips and not be able to go on these amazing trips, if you know what I mean. I get checked once a month to make sure it is all good and not have to do it sooner, so I pray everyday for this and lots of other things to. So, I can't workout hardcore like I am used to and have to watch myself very carefully, so it is 10x harder for me to lose the weight right now and basically the only thing I can do is walk/jog.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ON THEIR VACTIONS AND THE AWESOME PLACES EVERYONE IS GOING TO.

Hey! I just joined but loved your post - especially giving up the keyboard and hitting the bike instead! Wanted to check in and check up, hope you made your goals and had a WONDERFUL time in Cabo!

OOPS sorry - I'm new at this posting stuff. This was meant for JSTCHLIN on this thread, guess I should have sent a private message.

Hi all! I'm so excited to find this group! I am getting ready to graduate medical residency in 2 weeks and then I have 6 weeks off (the first real "summer vacation" since high school!). My husband of 1 1/2 years and I are going to take a dream trip to Europe for 2 weeks, and then I have a bunch of smaller stateside trips planned. Bring on graduation and summer!

I know I don't have time to be "bikini ready" in 3 weeks for the trip/cruise in Europe, but I'm hoping to maintain my fitness goals during all this travel and all-you-can-eat goodness. That's where I'm excited to get to know all of you, and hopefully be bikini ready for another trip next year :)

THanks for reading!

My name is Katie...and I am looking for some major motivation!

My husband is getting deployed in August, so to console myself while he is gone, a girlfriend of mine and I are going to....Jamaica! all-inclusive, of course :). But I definitely want to be in a bikini by then!

Also, next April I might be meeting my husband in Europe while he goes on a 2 week leave...i would LOVE to be thinner for him by then!

Hello everyone, my name is Mike. I have been on SP since April 2009 and began my journey in Jan 2009. I had lost 125 lbs by May 2010 but then with the stresses of life including our first house and 2nd child I gained back 60 lbs. This was the first time I consider that I have "yo-yo'd" in my life. The last 20 lbs came in December when I just needed a break and told myself mentally I would begin again in Jan 2011. And I did, losing a 1 whole lb last month. LOL. OK, so not the surge I wanted to start with but better then nothing. More stresses last month with the weather and financially... bla bla bla.

Anyways, I joined this team because I just found out I am going on vacation to Cabo to a friend of a friends wedding. 93 days and some hours from now I want to be back down in the 200s for sure and well into them.

I get online throughout the day but cannot and now will not spend much time at the keyboard instead I'll be pedaling away on my stationary bike and lifting light weights. Check out my page and past blogs. I appreciate in advance your warm welcome and look forward to getting to know you.

Take care and stay healthy

Hi, all.

I am a total travel junkie! My short-term plans are to get fit enough to do some particular hiking and bicycle trails in the Isle of Anglesey off of Wales this coming October. When I finally get to my goal weight my husband and I plan to rend a cottage in the Burgundy region of France for a bit to celebrate, biking around vineyards and such. :) I hope that'll be late spring of 2011, but we shall see. Also, when I'm more fit I want to go back to Hawai'i and try windsurfing again to see if I do any better than my utter failure last year!

Hi all! My vacation goal is less dependent on weight and more on me getting a better paying job, but nonetheless, I'm hoping to meet my goal long before our potential trip to Disney World in August of 2011! Happy to be on the team. :)

Hi everyone! My reason for joining this team is a trip to France I have planned later this year. I don't need to be bikini-ready, I just want less pain in my knees. I like being a tourist which requires a lot of walking!

Hi I am Sara, new to this team, but have been a Sp member for just over a year!!
I am eager to get healthy and fit for my group vacation in 2011.
When I joined last spring, I lost 20lbs for my sons wedding, but have put some of that back on over these winter months. So today I am making every effort to get back on track.

Hi from TN. Have the tickets and room for Puerto Rico beginning May 20, 2010. Really need to get motivated to drop some weight. Plan on hiking with my husband while we are there so I really need to build my endurance also.

Hello everyone! My name is Shelly and I've been a member of SparkPeople since 2006. I tend to become more active on the site when I'm trying to get myself ready for a vacation. I don't do too bad while I'm away from the site, but I do tend to add 10-15 pounds if I'm not tracking my food for a while. I guess I need that constant reminder that I'm eating too much (or maybe eating the wrong foods). I'm dedicated now as my husband and I are looking forward to our trip to Jamaica in March 2010 for our 35th birthdays!

Hi everyone, my name is Sofi and I have been a SP member for a long time but never really started using all that it has to offer until now. I am going on a cruise in December. I want to lose at least 20 lbs by then. My sweetie of course says I am perfect which actually sometimes is a henderence. yes it is great that he accepts me as I am but that means he isnt pushing me either. He will work out with me and do what ever I ask though. Of course he is a normal weight. I need to lose 47 all together but am working on 20 before my trip
I need all the help I can get but I know that real change has begun with meemoticon

Hi everyone! My name is Alison, and I am 31-years old, married, and the proud owner of an energetic beagle named Franklin. I've been on SparkPeople for less than a month, and I'm just now starting to dig in and explore all the resources and communities this site has to offer. In 47 days, my husband and I are leaving for a two week vacation to Australia. I've never been overseas before, and it's his reward for finishing law school and taking the bar exam. We have a lot of activities planned for while we're there, and while I know I don't have a lot of time to lose all the weight I want, I'd like to at least get in better shape so I have more stamina and energy while we're there.

I look forward to being a member of the group!

Hi! My name is Renee. I have been a member of Spark for 9 months I think, but I didn't get active until November 7th, when I took a photo of myself after the doctors office weighed me in at 280!! My real starting weight is 277.6 and I have lost 55.4 pounds so far, because I wanted to, not because I was going on vacation. Now we have started thinking about a more tropical vacation this year around our anniversary in February, and I want to try and achieve greater success. We are thinking the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, or Puerto Rico....just depends on the best deal when it is time to go. BUT, I want to look as good as possible for when we do go!emoticon

Hey, my names sandra. I am going to cuba at the end of november..to get married..so of course i wanna look fantastic in my bikini's. Unfortunately i have a tendency to get insanely un-motivated although lately has been going a lot better. Im currently down eight pounds with another 15 or so to go. I would love to get back in shape especially since my fiance and i travel quite frequently..especially to the carribean and im sick of having to photo-shop photos.

Hey! I'm Shalynn and I have been on and off this website like nobody's business. (Always w/ the excuse that college stress was getting to me) But now I'm sticking to it by actually following the stages and focusing on goals. I hope to get involved w/ the spark community and tell my goals to my friends and family to keep me motivated.
My first goal I'm working towards is getting healthy by July when I go to Miami here in Florida. emoticon

Hello team, I've been a spark member for awhile now and lost sight of working on my weight since I've moved so frequently. Anyway, I'm going on a cruise to Alaska with the women in my family as a college graduation present to my sister and I. We're going in August so I've got until then to get in much better shape. I've gained 20 pounds since I got married and I would like to not look like a sausage in a swimsuit. I look forward to being healthier and in much better shape to go walking around at each of the stops and all over the ship.

I look forward to meeting all of you and hope we all enjoy our upcoming vacations.

Discipline is remembering what you really want.

Hi everyone. I started SP a few months ago because I noticed I gained about 10-15 pounds since getting married almost 4 years ago. My goal is to lose 10 pounds and tone up. We are going on a Caribbean Cruise this December (a long time to wait!!!) and I don't want to leave exercise until the last minute. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hello All! We are going to Florida in April. It's been a long Iowa winter so I'm really looking forward to the promise of sunshine in Florida. I am nervous though about fitting into capris and short sleeves and a swimming suit. I'm looking forward to having buddies to keep me motivated. I've been working to lose weight now for about a month. It isn't easy to break old habits. I'm anxious to hear some new ideas for exercise, snacking and weight loss.

Hello - I started losing weight with SP because I am going on a cruise with my entire family Feb 2010. My weight loss goal with SP is to lose 50lbs by Dec 2009, so I am so excited to actually be losing the weight. I'm struggling with the sweets and alcohol, but I know I can do it! If I do lose the weight, I'll be smaller than I was in high school, which is just awesome! I can't wait! I want to look good in a bathing suit again!

Hi, I'm new to SP. One of my goals is to lose enough weight by March- we're going back to Branson, and I plan to take pictures this time around... however, last year we went to Tennessee and I cringe when I look at our photos- that's when I actually see the proof of how much I've gained since I got married, and I'd like to have some pics that I don't mind looking at!!! After all, these should be some of my favorite memories, but I can't enjoy it when my fat is staring me in the face!!!

Hi all,

Almost every year my folks take my family on vacation somewhere warm in March. Since we live in MI that is really great. We've been to the Dominican Republic x 2, the Riviera Mayax2, the Pacific coast of Mexico x2, Jamaica, a Disney Cruise, and this year we are going to Puerto Rico. I am very excited. We used to stay at all inclusives but now we rent a house on the beach so we can cook our own food, etc.

Anyway, 10 pounds have crept back and I am feeling very bloated. I want to lose these 10 pounds before I go and I need your help. After the new year I am starting the 9th law way of eating which is a plan that is long term and seems to make total sense. Of course I am now eating myself into oblivion in anticipation of getting healthy, LOL! I honestly can't wait until next Monday when I will be home from visiting friends in Chicago and will have control of my kitchen again.

I hope to post here frequently and keep everyone UTD on how I am doing!
