This thread is about starting our day off with ONE good reason for why we should stick to our plans. Of course there are literally tons of reasons, but we're just looking for the ONE thing that's gonna do it for you today. It is meant to motivate us when we start wondering why we're working so hard and thinking "Ummm, why are we doing this again?". Or simply just to reinforce our new lifestyles.

The ONE reason I'm staying on plan today is: You know what, nevermind I'm done ladies. I'm sorry, I just can't do it anymore. I've had enough. My plan is over with, history, it was good while it lasted.






Just kidding!!! April Fools!!!! I know, not funny. Sorry ladies. Forgive me.

Anyway, my ONE reason for today is: I can't wait to get into the 160's. It seems like such a NICE place to be. I haven't been there in a long time, maybe 16, 17, 18 years ago. More? I seemed to have blocked all scale number and years from my memory. Regardless of when, I am very anxious to get there - and SOON.

LOL Robin. You're so silly!

The one reason I'm staying on plan is because I've been an April Fool for far to long. It's time to change my life once and for all!

I'm on plan today because no matter what happened yesterday today is a new day, new week, new month and new beginning!

Besides, IT'S FINALLY BASEBALL SEASON!!!!!!!! It's been a LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGG winter!!!! Go Royals!

It's all about the scale for me today. I weigh in tomorrow, and I really, really want to see some downward movement in that scale. It's been far too long.

The one reason I'm staying on plan today is because it's the first of April, and I've been meaning to get started since August of last year! I think one shouldn't start on a Monday. 'Cuz Monday never comes (figuratively speaking). Also, since it's April 1st, I think to myself, what better day than to start today? I love the start of new months, for some reason. It promises something new.

LisaMarie71
04-01-2007, 02:20 PM
I agree about the promise of a new month, dawn2dusk -- and I'm starting to feel that way about each new day, actually!

I'm staying on plan today because I ate some junk food yesterday. I told myself when I finished the race that I would honestly eat whatever I craved, so some of that was junky stuff. I don't feel guilty about it at all, because I ran a flippin' 10k, after all!! But I do have to make sure I get right back on plan.

I'm staying OP today because a 1 pound loss will have me in the 220's and a 2 pound loss will have me at 50 pounds lost! Both huge and I'm ready for them! :D

And, I'm in some pain the last few days (hurts to even move), so all the more reason to stay OP for food.

boaterswife
04-01-2007, 04:49 PM
OK, I'm on plan today because I weighed in yesterday, and after being on plan all week I only dropped a quarter of a pound. Can you imagine the result if I had been off plan? EEEEEKKKK!!!!!!! So, while I'm not thrilled with the loss, it was still a loss, so I need to keep moving! Also, I just got home from walking 4 miles....I'm not about to waste that be eating junk!

missaprylj
04-01-2007, 05:39 PM
I'm OP because being home for a few days reminded me that this summer, I'm gong to see a lot of my classmates who haven't seen me in a year and I want to look BETTER than I did when I left... especially to the ones I don't like! :lol:

Ms Robin!!!

How on earth did you loose 110lbs in six months!!!!!???????? That is AAAAAWWWWEEEEESOME!!!!! Hook me up with your tips!!! lol

I'm on plan because I want to be!!!!! There is no reason why I shouldn't be, cause right now the only person I am responsible for is ME, MYSELF, AND I!!! NO KIDS, NO HUSBAND, AND NO ILL FAMILY MEMBERS, so I'm taking advantage of this life change while I can!!!!!

Yesterday I told my husband how high my weight had gone; I had previously guarded that number very tightly. He was shocked,:fr: as I expected, but at least there were no lectures (he's always been skinny):o.

I'm on plan today because this morning I overheard him on the phone to our good friend, 600 miles away, bragging about how much weight I'd lost, how much I was on track for more, and how he would support me later if I went ahead with a lower-ab surgery. Even if he personally was doubtful about the need. And he added that I wouldn't hear a word of discouragement from him.

What else can I do, but make him proud?:love:

The one reason I'm staying on plan today is because I (gulp!) signed up for a half marathon this summer, and I want to be carrying less of me over the finish line by the time it rolls around.

NavyWifeDee
04-02-2007, 08:08 AM
Is because I have a 5k this weekend, and would like to meet my original goal of 248 by then, if not my new one of 245.

I have a big reason for staying on plan today. This morning DH was in the kitchen with me before he left for work. His employer started a company wide fitness challenge a few weeks ago, which he is participating in. He is also the captain of his team (they had to do teams, etc.). One benefit his company offers is reimbursement for WW fees at each 10% milestone, and with the challenge going on they've had a lot of people sign up for WW. So many in fact that they are talking about getting an "at work" meeting set up. So here's my reason for staying on plan....DH said he was going to go to work and recommend ME for the leader because I've accomplished so much. I told him that wasn't possible...not lifetime yet, etc., but just knowing that he is that proud of me and that he thinks I could impact all those other people, wow. To me, that statement he made this morning said 100x's more than any complement he could have given me. I need to prove to him and to myself that I can succeed at this!

Because even though the scale isn't moving, my body is changing. I've lost inches on my waist and thighs and arms. I don't get as tired easily and I feel like I'm developing much needed muscle.

reds ohare
04-02-2007, 10:27 AM
My one reason, is I'm ready to get out of this rut that I've been in for the last two weeks!!!! I stepped on the scale to find my 9lb loss for the month has dropped to a 5 lb loss. My goal is 10.

I've GOTTA get out of this rut. I know how to do it. I will not sabotage myself any longer.

I'm staying on plan today because I don't want it to take another 8 weeks to loose another 5 pounds. That is what it took for the last 5 and I'm getting too close to onederland, I want to get to onederland by the end of this month.

I'm so glad to see this thread! I'm losing focus and have been sliding back into my unconscious habits.

The reason I am staying on plan today is because I want to keep losing and feeling better health and energy wise. I want to feel good about myself and my efforts in losing weight. I am staying on plan today because I'm worth it. I deserve a quality life and good health.

We're having cake in the office this afternoon and I am staying on plan (away from the cake) because they are empty calories and the cake will not make my life better. That goes for the candy jar as well. Instead, I will go for a walk and enjoy the sunny, breezy day.

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is I have so much energy now it amazes me. And I want that to continue. I'm like the energizer bunny. I just keep on going and going and going. The amount of things I can get done in a day now is just amazing. I used to have no energy and would get so little accomplished. Now the sky's the limit in what I can do in any single day.

I'm OP today because summer is pretty much here (it's 76 F today already) and it gets brutal during July and August (it can get up to a 100 F!), I really don't want to roast in my long sleeved shirts and jeans that I wear to hide my body.

Also, I noticed a 0.5 lb loss from last night so that's pretty motivating, too. :p

I'm staying on plan today, because I've been feeling physically unwell for the past couple of days (is it gona be a flu or what?).
Staying on plan boosts my morale. So currently if my body is not too fit, at least my mind will be ;)

I am feeling yucky today. I have a terrible chest cold/cough/congestion/stuffed nose/headache thingy going on. And my 3 kids are all off from school. It's quite hectic around here and my scheduele is all up in the air. I HATE IT. But nevertheless I will stay on plan today. I can't imagine how much worse I would be feeling if I were still 287 lbs and this sick. Although losing the weight is no where near, that's no where near the answer to solving all my problems, it most certainly does make many, many, many things that much easier.

Dawn2Dusk
04-04-2007, 07:56 AM
I'm on plan today because it's TOM and... you know, it's weird. TOM really makes me feel good about my body somehow. Makes me want to work extra harder.

Also, I want my name to be on the Onederland list :D

NavyWifeDee
04-04-2007, 08:33 AM

04-04-2007, 09:01 AM

I went out for both lunch and dinner yesterday. I made good healthy choices and avoided the bread basket, but it was on the higher end of my calorie intake. Today I'll stay on the lower end!

Robin: I hope you are feeling better soon. I have a bit of a cold and sore throat as well, but what cracks me up is last week I was bragging to my mom that I had one of the healthiest winters in a long while. I really have fought off all the bugs that my kids brought home. Within five days I came down with this one. Maybe Taryn thought she would ruin my record with her germy little hands! :D

Casey me too!!! It's the first cold I've had since I started this journey back in September. I have fought off all the various bugs and viruses my kids have had this school year - up until now. Oh well, it was good while it lasted. I hope you are feeling better as well.

LisaMarie71
04-04-2007, 10:16 AM
Get better soon, Robin!

I'm staying on plan today because of something more than a year away. My husband and I are hoping to go to Italy next summer. We went in 1998, and though I wasn't at my absolute heaviest, it was a bit miserable in terms of clothing and heat and all the walking I had to do. This time, I want to enjoy every minute without worrying about my weight or any kind of physical limitations.

sirak
04-04-2007, 10:18 AM
I am staying on plan today because the scale has not budged in two days.I am on plan and doing cardio, but it is my TOM. I might not lose in the next couple days but sooner or later it will dip !

RitzyFritz
04-04-2007, 11:33 AM
I'm determined to stay on plan today because JUST FOR TODAY I want to focus on all the right choices and not worry about yesterday or tomorrow. Then, when tomorrow becomes 'today,' I will do it again.

My one reason for staying on plan today is that I really want to be in the 190's when I go to my doctor's appointment on April 26th. And that's an evening appointment, so really I need to be at least 195-197 in the morning to weigh in under 200 at my appointment!!!

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is I am going shopping today with my 3 teenaged daughters (G-d helpe me). We haven't all done this together yet. We're actually making a family outing of it. DH is coming too, kicking and screaming of course. They're all home from school and we're going to a big mall not so close to my home. For the very first time in my life, I can shop in the same exact stores as my kids. I am soooo looking forward to this. This is going to be quite an experience I am sure. I wonder just how many times I will be shedding some tears. So yup, I will stay on plan today. Shopping is FUN again. Lots and lots of fun.

The reason today is I fit into a blouse I had fit in 10 years ago. I saved it beacuse I loced the colour and the style. (still in style) It did not even fit when I lost weight last time and I was 220. So I know I am doing it right this time. Whoo hoo:carrot: :carrot:

This top is perfectly matching my old (but beloved) pants. I'm gona hang these pants (and top) outside the closet, so I can look at them often. It's gona help me stay on plan.

So I'm staying on plan to fit comfortably in that outfit.

My reason today: Because I feel like I need to ramp things up. Am I the only one who feels like after a few weeks things get a little lax? As in getting busy and not being as vigilant? Maybe it is just me. Anyway...I want to be very alert and vigilant of what I put in my mouth today because I like the loss I have had so far, but it isn't good enough. I want more! :tantrum: :D

rockinrobin
04-07-2007, 06:00 AM
Today's ONE reason - The more I do this, the more I want this. To be fit and healthy and trim. I really feel as if this was the way I was meant to live my life. I simply love the fact that I have control and I eat incredibly nutritious foods. I know it's weird on my part, but I think it's just the coolest thing. I don't know maybe it's because in my former life my eating habits were a huge, huge source of embarassment for me. Something I had to hide. Not anymore. I am so proud of my food choices and the fact that I exercise. Haha, I exercise. Too funny.

I've had the week off from work and normally when I have this much free time, I've gained from 5-10 lbs. However, I've had my first loss in about 6 weeks, a 2lb loss. Since I'm losing again, this is my ONE reason for the rest of the month to continue on this.

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is, being a mere 5 foot nothing, having lost 119 lbs and weighing 168 lbs - I am still 15 lbs into the obese catergory. I have to get to 153 lbs to just be "overweight". I wanna be overweight. I am sick and tired of being obese.

Congratulations on your loss Robin, you are doing amazing.
I hear you about the obese category. I can't wait to just be overweight. I am slow and steady. Eventually I will become overweight. Imagine what a funny goal, to actually be overweight.
Once again congratulations on your success.
Oh yeah, I am staying on plan so that I can become overweight rather than obese.
Have a great day everyone.

My reason today: I discussed my mid-way goal with my husband this weekend (a romantic getaway for the 2 of us), and he was very excited about that. That just put the fire in me to try even harder. He is SO deserving of some time away - and with a wife that is slimming down!! :woohoo: LOL!

I'm on plan today because the day AFTER weigh in the scale showed 229. DRAT! Well, drat that it's after weigh-in...not drat that I'm there! haha So I'm on-plan because next weigh-in I'm going to be firmly planted in the 20's and on my way to the teens! I'd LOVE to be early for my Memorial Day goal!

Why I am staying on plan today
Tomorrow is weigh in--but the real reason is

I am tired of hearing my knees creaking

Slashnl
04-10-2007, 01:22 PM
I want to be in the 260's so much. One of my most recent low weigh-ins(before I put it back on again) was 260, so I'd like to get down there again and be able to progress past that. And then, looking further back to another low weigh-in, I'll be looking to get back to 240. THEN, I'll try to make progress back to my wedding weight of 212. And finally, on to my goal weight.

Then, we'll see how it goes past that point.....

boaterswife
04-10-2007, 04:04 PM
My reason for today is that I just looked through my WW quick trak journal/diary. I've felt as though I've been on plan all along, however I've been averaging losses of about a pound a week for the last 7 weeks. I know that should make me happy, but up until then I was averaging about 2.4 pounds per week. My meals and all still look the same, but obviously something has changed. I need to kick it into gear and maybe, just maybe, I'll have some larger losses to record again!

sexybrokechick
04-10-2007, 04:38 PM
My reason today is that I just exercised for 80 mins with my DVDS and I hope to add 20-30 mins of strength training later. I'm on schedule to hit my mid-summer goal in my sig and my other summer goal of weighing 200 lbs by 8/31/06. I just gotta keep it up.

I have to say it's getting up this morning and checking in on this forum that has given me much motivation.. and somehow... seeing that ticker at the bottom and HOW close I am to 199 (have not been there in 11 years) that visual thing, (what a great idea these are!) really helps..

And I have a sister that had gastric bypass and has lost 100 pounds that is coming to town (first time I have seen her) this summer. (she is now to the weight that I am..but much taller so I know she looks amazing!) and she is bringing friends.. I want to look good.. and have lots of fun when they get here.. I want to take them to the beach and some of the springs and feel comfortable in my shorts (not gonna be comfy in a bathing suit for a while!)..

I love this place.

My goodness! You've lost over 100 pounds! Just how many people does your doctor know who have successfully lost this much? He should be proud of you. I think you're amazing!

I really love my doctor partially because he doesn't think being overweight is acceptable. I really owe it somewhat to him being a foreign doctor. American doctors tend to ignore the weight issues of their patients unless there are complications. Foreign doctors tend to look at weight and think it is a major problem. At least that is my experience. Last time I saw him, I think I weighed 280 so obviously an improvement since :)

rockinrobin
04-12-2007, 07:49 AM
Nelie I couldn't agree more with you on the doctor bit. My doctor never, ever mentioned my weight. Sure I was glad to not hear the lecture, but come on, you're my doctor, you're supposed to be concerned with my health, is there anything more potentially harmful then being morbidly obese? When I started my new lifestyle I actually switched doctors, but I immediately brought up the subject with her. She's no great shakes on the subject either. Didn't have much advice for me at all.

Anyway, My ONE reason today is: Woke up with TOM and almost a 1 1/2 lb gain, I'm not freaking out - at all. But it's certainly enough to keep me on plan for the day.

Both of my doctors are this way. My very cute Persian family doc and my ob gyn (who is Chinese).
My ob-gyn even mentioned losing weight before I TTC again (I had a m/c in December).

My reason to stay on track for today:
I want to be able to bend over and tie/untie my shoes without feeling that I have been cut in half

I really love my doctor partially because he doesn't think being overweight is acceptable. I really owe it somewhat to him being a foreign doctor.

I am staying on plan today because yesterday I had a simply fabulous day. I was so ACTIVE, I was able to walk so fast yesterday. It's the fastest I've ever walked. It felt so great. I went clothes shopping and bought some fabulous stuff. I had a blast. I had so much energy and accomplished so much and all the while felt so slim and great doing it - which got me to thinking - why oh why have I wasted almost 2 decades being miserable and so terribly inactive and hating my clothing and on and on and on. I never, ever, ever want to waste another minute of my life not feeling my optimal best. NEVER. That's it - this plan of mine stays in place for the rest of my life. It is so very worth it. I love walking around with my head held high and a spring in my step.

If I veer off slightly, I veer off slightly. That is what a normal, healthy person would do. I want to be that normal healthy person, who has their weight under control. Who doesn't let a day of not so great eating get to them. Who is always within 5 lbs of their optimal weight.

I'm staying OP because I have experienced a lot of emotional issues lately (mother moved 2000 miles away, we had a wreck, etc) and I have felt myself losing perspective. HOWEVER, I have managed to keep my calories in an acceptable range; but I don't like the feeling that I'm losing the "fire." Gotta keep focus and stay motivated. :)

Ritzy, it sounds as if you've had a tough go of it lately. 2000 miles!!!!! Wow, that's a long ways away. Throughout my journey I too have had, lets call them highs and lows as to my motivation. But I think the key here is not necessarily motivation - but DETERMINATION and COMMITMENT. Motivation will peak and wane, it's the determination and commitment, IMO that will take us to goal and then keep us there. It's great that you managed to stay within your calorie range all through it, which certainly shows you are DETERMINED. And just because the fire is a little low right not, does not mean that it will not be renewed. I find this has happened to me many, many times throughout my journey. I think to myself, what happened? where did all that motivation go, the hunger and need to go on, and then ... boom -there it is once again. Hang in there Ritzy. SOMETHING will once again spark your fire.

I'm staying OP today because I need to keep things in perspective. Even though I have not lost lately, I haven't gained either. I have lost 19 lbs in 14 weeks and the turtle can win the race against obesity.

I am SOOOO staying on plan today because: I have 4, yup count em, 4 social events coming up in May. And they're all completely different groups of people. For the past almost 20 years or so I dreaded these things. Now I can hardly wait. I am so excited. The first one is on May 6. My DH's side of the family, aunts, uncles and cousins who have not seen me yet and haven't a clue that I have been losing weight. I can not wait to see their reactions, especially from hubby's one aunt who always said to me, "I bet you don't drink enough water." Yeah, like THAT was my problem. I have a gorgeous dress for the evening and I can't wait. OMG, I have a dress. I wouldn't mind being a few pounds lighter, that's for sure.

The One reason I'm staying on plan today is: I want to wear my wedding rings again.

Robin, I have this sneaking suspicion that you'll be walking on cloud 9 the whole month of May! Isn't it fun to actually look forward to social events again! I know I do!

I'm on plan today because summer is one day closer today than it was yesterday. And with summer comes the swimsuits; we spend mucho time at the lake and on the water, so not wearing a swimsuit is not an option! Enough said!

I want to stay on plan today because in four more pounds I have a BMI of just "overweight". In three more pounds I will hit 45. Infact I have only 14 more pounds to make my July 5th goal.
I might just buy me a new dress to walk around in if I hit that early. I am going to have to buy something as nothing fits anymore !

The one reason I'm staying on plan today is I bought a few shirts size Large and they fit!! I'm so amazed. I had bought some XL shirts and was amazed when they were a bit big on me so I figured I should order some L size shirts. I figured if I didn't fit them now, I'd fit them soon but they fit :)

I'm on plan today because it's exactly 3 months until my birthday and I am determined to be below 200 on that day. It will be the first time in 13 years that the numbers on the scale start with a 1.

I'm staying on plan today so that I can whittle away at that stupid upper arm flab!!!!

LisaMarie71
04-19-2007, 10:13 AM
nelie, great job on the size large shirts! I'm jealous, because I'm still in an XL. It's weird how different our bodies can be at different heights and weights. I think my problem, also, is that I'm so used to my clothes being big on me that I still want more "room" in my clothes than I really need. I'm looking forward to size L, and I've always been top-heavy, so I probably will never see an M!

My reason today is because I want to look good at the prom! So funny for a 35-year-old to care about the prom, but my husband and I teach at the same school and we're fairly popular teachers so everyone will be looking at us, of course. He's very attractive, so I want to look good on his arm. At last year's prom, I threw on some ugly old dress I'd bought years ago for a wedding, and it looked like a big sack. This year should definitely be an improvement!

The one reason that I'm staying OP today is that the weather is absolutely gorgeous, and looking to stay that way for a while, and I want to keep up with my DH on our bicycles. Also I want to take my dog for a jog and actually be able to jog for more than 2-3 minutes at a stretch. Ooops, that was two reasons. :)

Hey ladies!

I hope it is okay that I invited myself!

The one reason I am staying on plan today is because I like the fact that my watch is no longer snug on my wrist. I middle finger or ring finger can now circle around my wrist and touch my thumb.

The one and most important reason I'm stay OP today: I am doing this for my health. I want to be around for my 19 y/o to have children as well as my 4 y/o to have children.

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is because I so very, very, very badly want to be in the 150's. I just LOVE those new "decades" and I'm thinking the One-Five-Oh's are a pretty decent one to be in. Can't wait!!!!

boaterswife
04-20-2007, 07:49 AM
I'm on plan today because tomorrow is weigh in day. I've been on plan all week, but just don't feel "lighter". I'm hoping the scale proves me wrong!

Mrs Quadcrew
04-20-2007, 09:25 AM
Liz....you're soooo close!!! You'll do it here REAL quick!! I can't wait to be that close to ONEderland.

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is that today was my weigh in and I am 2 pounds closer to the 2-teens! They're just around the corner, and I know I can get there next week if I stay focused!:D

sirak

I jumped on the scale and it didn't say 189.:o
I am staying on plan today because I know it is a fluke and this little blimp on the radar isn't going to get me down.
Even if this little bump is true I am going to get into one eighty something somehow !

royalsfan1
04-20-2007, 10:13 AM
I'm staying on plan today because this week is going well for me so far and there are still 3 days until weigh-in! I LOVE seeing that scale go down. I'm also on for today because I tried on my clothes hanging for "someday" in the closet and they are getting so much closer!

rockinrobin

I am staying on plan today because is is gorgeous and sunny and warm outside - FINALLY. And I want to be able to enjoy the outdoors. No more laying low for me. I am going to be active this summer for the first time in way too long. Oh yeah and have oodles and oodles of clothing to choose from while doing so.

The One reason I'm staying on plan today is: I really really want to break into the 230's. It seems like there is a barrier at 240 and each time I get close, I bounce back up. No more! I will break through this time!

I'm on plan today because I've done GREAT all week (if I do say so myself) and I'm not about to ruin it today! I've had a marvelous time cooking snacks for and serving meals to about 50 men on a spiritual retreat this weekend and I've been ON PLAN through the entire thing! Next week I'll be doing it all over again for about 70 women....and now I KNOW that I can do it!!!

Lisamarie- my scale did that for a couple of days right around that number and it was so frustrating ! I think it inched down a couple ounces a day.Suddenly it was at 190. I blame it on the scale being stubborn.;)
Thanks RoyalAthena-I would have never though buying a pair of shorts could be so wonderful.:carrot:
I am staying on plan today for my legs and my arms. I have this teeny muscle definition on my shins that I can watch flex. At dinner last night I caught Step MIL looking at my arm when I flexed in conversation. This stuff is begining to pay off.

I'm staying on track today because I realized I was full at Sunday breakfast, and there was still nearly half a plate full left. Also, I was able to wear a pair of jeans that I haven't worn in a while. I didn't go down a size, but it was a matter of different brands having a smaller size 18 than the one I usually wear. And I want to actually go down a size soon!

boaterswife
04-22-2007, 10:34 PM
I'm on plan, with no intentions of slacking! I put on two different pairs of shorts this morning that fit great....a few days ago they were still a little more snug than they were today. I also put on some pants that I've been wearing for a month or so, and DD said to take them off, they were too big. They weren't too big last week. So, in a nutshell, the scale may have only shown a 1/2 pound loss this week, but the clothing is telling the real story!

The ONE reason I am staying on plan today is: The alternative is not an option. I made a commitment to myself that I would do all I could on my end to obtain a better and healthier life. Forever. Though sometimes it's difficult, that really doesn't matter. A commitment is a commitment. Ya gotta see it through. I make commitments to people all the time for various different things. I would never dream of letting them down. Why let myself down?
