Good morning friends. My wdw countdown has dropped to The 40's. So can't wait. This is one of my favorite parts of EPCOT and still gives me goose bumps. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ. Have a great day!😘

Wahoo at the 60 day Mark!! Fast pass selection day and I'm done. Can't wait.!!!!

Yay! How exciting! So in WDW, there is no way to get a fastpass if you haven't reserved it in advance like this? - BriarRose406  157.0 #2668 4:36PM
There still is. I think they only put so many on my Disney experience at 60 days. Then I think they release more at 30 days for those that do not have resort reservations but have passes and then again on the day of if you just arrive that day. Once you are in the park have used all your fp then you can select another if there are any available.  - mmddgp  1092.3 #7 4:51PM

Sorry for your experience! Unfortunately I know all to well your pain. I experience that issue a lot. I don't even look or shop for anything else if there is something I really want and it's a good sale. Because if you dare shop and take your time adding things to your cart the items disappear from your cart 😳.  Wish you better luck next time! πŸ‘πŸ½ - tvdisneylove  91.9 #3797 12:03AM

Good morning. It has been a while since I have been on. Not doing well with the weight loss πŸ˜ͺ I have gone to WW for 6 years, lost 50 lbs and now through yo yo-ing have gained it all back. I have decided to take a break from the meetings and weigh ins but hope to find support here more often. Looking to buy a fit bit and get motivated in the way of moving more than in food. I have my dw trip to  More...

I have a fitbit and I love it. I log everything into it, food, water, sleep, exercise. It really helps with eating because it logs everything so you know exactly how much to eat daily. I just have the flex, not the fancy one. - varela2892  64.0 #4433 2:46PM
Never had one but you say log into do you do this via you computer or phone ? I an very tech challenged  - mmddgp  1092.3 #7 8:39PM
Me too!  Love it - Ilovegoofy  68.3 #4319 8:44AM
mmddgp you log info in your phone via app that is free with phone. Super user friendly set up and updating.  - Ilovegoofy  68.3 #4319 8:45AM
Love my Fitbit flex. It does make you more reliant on the app to get info but it does the job.  - TiggersAndTinks  176.8 #2350 8:26PM
  It is both a app on your phone or you can use your computer. The only thing about it I don't like is having to charge it about every other day. I know someone who has a Garmin and the charge lasts for a year, it runs off of watch batteries.  @@@@@@mmddgp - varela2892  64.0 #4433 8:51AM
I have Fitbit Charge and I charge it every five days or so. Charges completely in one hour. I usually take it off and charge it in the morning before getting into the shower. I also charge at night if I'm soaking my muscles in the tub.  Either way I'm not missing logging any steps.  - Ilovegoofy  68.3 #4319 8:49AM
Have you ever heard of the book French Women Don't Get Fat?  It came out about 10 years ago.  I bought it on a whim, and read through it, I still pick it up from time to time. What she had to say about food and activity really made a lot of sense to me.  It actually helped me change the way I look at food and health.  We live in a society that sends such mixed and strange messages about food, nutrition, and our health.  On one hand, there's so much excess, on the other there's so much dieting and's no wonder we struggle to maneuver through all that!  I recommend having a look. πŸ’– good luck with your new journey! 😘🌺✨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.1 #339 8:46AM
Also, have you ever thought of doing a RunDisney race?  They are so fun, and encouraging, and you don't have to run--many people walk!  Fun family activities ☺️ 5k is 3 miles and pretty doable for people who are in basic good health and train.  They've been great motivators for me and my husband over the last few years.  Much less pressure during the race than I expected, too - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.1 #339 3:22PM
Thanks for the info on the book, I will look into it. I have done a couple area 5k and really don'tMind them at all. For me it is just getting in the habit of doing something, anything consistently. I do like the strategy of WW everything with in reason is allowed and also get in exercise which is a good balance.   - mmddgp  1092.3 #7 7:38AM
I always wondered if you have to run or can just walk. Thanks for the info and encouragement for everyone! - Ilovegoofy  68.3 #4319 8:50AM
If any one is interested, RunDisney is now doing "virtual" 5K races this summer, too.  That could be a fun motivator and something to do with family/friends!  You get a medal and everything.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.1 #339 6:33AM

Finally official. Made ressies today. Two rooms at port Orleans riverside for 7 nights for 10 people. Me hubbie youngest daughter all 6 grand kids and my granddaughter to be. Still need to book second part of trip up at universal. So excited!!!

I would highly recommend the Loews Royal Pacific hotel at Universal if you've not already booked something.  Getting the early entry and free express passes makes all the difference.  Harry Potter rides in each park can be completed before the park is open to everyone else.  Also the pool area is fantastic for the children.  Go to parks first thing, return to pool for lunch and then head back into the parks once quieter again.  Have a great trip :-) - beentoallbut1  924.3 #0 10:04PM
