Default When do you start the "pre-cruise diet"?

Well, last week I made the final payment for our cruise in Oct. Then I got on the scale........NOT GOOD. I need to lose 10lbs to fit into my cruise clothes. As of yesterday it was 4 down, 6 to go. When do you start? I plan to board early to start eating!!!

Marilyn;
This time I started six weeks ago for my December 29, 2001 cruise. If you are looking for an excellent way to lose weight...try Weight Watchers Winning Points. It really, really works.

I agree with Mary Lou, Weight Watchers is the way to go. You'll be amazed at how many grams of fat we consume each day without realizing it. I started my pre-cruise diet the begining of August for my November cruise..but I need to drop more than 10lbs. Whats the worst that can happen...I buy a new wardrobe, what a shame!

I started telling myself I needed to REALLY diet back in March. I don't think I was listening...so, now that we're 3 months away, I'm being very concientious about what I eat. I desperately want to get into a black dress I have, and if I make that goal, I'll be thrilled!

Mary Lou,
Funny you should mention Weight Watchers. Last Fri I went to Weight Watchers, they were closed but I saw the lights were still on, so I banged on the door. A very nice lady let me in when I explained it was an emergency 911 type... I was out of my 2 point candy bars. She let me buy a case (24 boxes) even tho they had cashed out for the night. It was that or ice cream at night!!

That is so funny. And I'm sure she understood that it was an EMERGENCY!!!
Have you tried the Skinney Cow Ice Cream sandwiches? They are only 2 pts. also.

Yup, tried those too Mary Lou. (That rhymes) I never actually joined Weight Watchers but my chubby hubby did so I followed the program with him. That's how I got hooked on the candy bars. PS, My hubby dropped out. If you see him on the Summit don't let him know I talked about him, ok? Mary Lou, have you tried the Wow potato chips? Yummy and no fat.

I won't say a word to your hubby!!! I promise. I don't do the WoW products....they don't agree with me if you know what I mean.

Hi - I just joined Weight Watchers yesterday (as Mary Lou knows). I need to lose so I can fit in some cruising clothes - hope I'm starting early enough for my January 4th sailing on the Summit. But, I still want to be able to look forward to enjoying Celebrity's excellent food. Of course that's part of how I put on the pounds - eating too good on my past cruises.

Four pounds in a week though is wonderful!!! My sister has taken metabolite, and lost 15lbs. but it comes off very slowly. (but stays off easier). I also pre-cruise diet, but I just watch my fat content--I get fat free everything, or eat lean cuisine for lunch and a light dinner.
good luck with it though--its sooooo hard to diet!!
Tracey
P.S. I also love the WOW chips, and I can't tell a difference with fat free sour cream or mayo.
