12 day cruise on the new Royal Princess to see the Greek Isles, Italy, Turkey ...
tell me more about your cruise that you have already booked! Mine is still just a goal.

One day at a time and one decision at a time =
losing one pound at a time!

I am SO excited to find this team! My husband has challenged me to lose another 10 pounds (lost 30 so far)...if I make my ultimate goal he will take me on our second cruise! We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last year with our first cruise to the Carribean and South America, it was incredible. Princess was first class and we had a balcony suite, loved it! Every minute of the cruise was enjoyable from the entertainers at night (like Los Vegas style), gambling, time to relax and see the movies under the stars. My favorite time on the ship was watching the water as the ship cut through, the splashing noise it made and the sound just lulled me to relax. The ports of call are all pre-planned and no mistakes...no stress. We went snorkeling and saw the reef with tropical fish.

Looking forward to our next cruise...now to lose those next 10 pounds!
Thanks for the motivation!

Yep, I am on FB also.
I found out how to tag the threads you want to follow, so that helps. I am looking for hotel and information on LA. They have been very helpful.
I know we have 11 months, but it takes me awhile to get things together.
I am going to move over to the CC here and drop this thread. See you there?

I'm on the real Cruise Critic, but I find that hard to follow the threads. Probably somewhere to mark them so you get the responses. I have figured that out. Need to ck it again. I have some questions I haven't found answers too.
Maybe I'll drop this one. I can only keep up with so many..LOL.
I get stuck on Spark, Pinterest and the Cruise Critic site.

I'm here, just got new luggage for my first cruise starting the 18th. I am so jazzed but also a little scared because it has been so hard to lose 30 lbs, and I don't want to blow it on the cruise. What do you mean by setting my Spark page?

Hello!!! New Member to "Lose to Cruise!" here!!

Our next cruise - 12/4/11 - 12/11/11 on the Caribbean Princess leaving from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

We just returned from a Cruise 12/5/11 - 12/12/11 on the Carnival Victory also from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I REALLY enjoy the cruises from San Juan because they have only ONE SEA DAY. I don't really enjoy the "Sea Days" and prefer to be in port so this has been the best I've found so far. We've ALWAYS used Carnival before so this will be our first "Princess" Cruise. If anyone has sailed with "Princess", please let me know your experience.

Also, I had to pack my "fat" clothes on the last cruise and REFUSE to do so next cruise!!! I can use ALL THE SUPPORT you have to keep me motivated!! Anyone looking for a "Buddy", just let me know!!

Thanks!! Angela

You are so right. It IS the old members who are missing and I am guilty of that. Double bad since I am a co team leader. Can I use the excuse I've been working out instead???? Haha

Okay, after just having been on this team a few days, my question is: Where are all the "old" members?

It's soooo quiet here! All of you can't be on a cruise. Especially since school has started.

And this months goal is just drinking 8 glasses of water! The month is half over and the goal is only at about 25% I think.

Remember, you'll be planning that next cruise before you know it. You want to look good in your warm weather clothes. And I want to stay motivated!

I have been on Spark for quite some time, had not been active in a long time but planning our 3rd cruise for the first week of January so I want to get some weight off before that next cruise. The last one I had more poundage than I wanted so time to take care of that issue.

Hi! I am new to the team but have been on spark for a couple of years. I went on my first cruise in Febrauary 2009 and we just booked our next one in July 2011. I know it is almost a year and a half away but I procratinated last time and was not the size I wanted to be. SO, this one will be different. Plenty of time to get in gear and lose some weight!

Hi,
I have been traveling and we are in AZ. We are enjoying the 70-90 degree weather.
We will be here until April 11th and then on to Volunteering for the Baker to Vegas Relay race for the CA. policemen/etc. with another friend from RV Enthusiast who I met on SP. We use our Motor Homes (MH) for stations for the runners. There are 21 stations and after a week of fun we go onto Vegas for 2 weeks.
We are looking forward to a cruise to Alaska in August from Seattle WA

I hope everyone has a great day...

Where are you cruising to in Feb?

I used Chantix....it was the real turning point for me. I am thrilled that I have been smoke free for two years, makes traveling so much more fun and easier! Check out the Stop Smoking Team they have some great information and tons of support, even if you are just starting to get ready to Quit! emoticon
