Happy September Everyone!

This thread is all about the ONE reason we are going to stay on plan today. Of course there are TONS of excellent reasons to. But we're just wondering what's 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.

Because it's September. New months are like clean slates. And with the routine of school returning, my plan becomes easier to stay on. Had a great week last week, want to continue it for the whole month!

I'm such an all or nothing person! Today is my daughter's 14th birthday.... cake, ice cream, chips, bbq etc.... I will have to stay on plan completely or I'll lose it completely.. I know me!!!! I know what I'm going eat and hopefully when get in the pool before everyone gets here and swim some laps.

I'm staying on plan because yesterday I spent a total of three hours at the gym (I must have gone insane :crazy:) working my butt off every minute of it, and I know that if I weren't on plan, I couldn't even think of doing something like that.

Today I stayed OP because I want to get under 210. I'm not even shooting for onederland at this point; I just want to FINALLY be under 210.

I'm OP today because the scale has been moving downward every day this week (in spite of TOM, even!) and I want to keep up the trend. When I do what I'm supposed to, things go the way they should... pretty good incentive to stick with it! :)

Hi everybody! I'm staying on plan today because every day counts when you have a goal. I'm determined to meet my goal! My first one is 218 by Halloween, 199 by Jan.15th. And 177 sometime in the spring of '08. That will be my 100 lb mark! Yay!! Keep it up; we can do this. :)

Thanks LaurieDawn! The support I got here after my vacation snafu was invaluable, it really got me back on track.

This has been a really good week. Last Monday I was 2 lbs over my ticker weight, if the scale says tomorrow what it said today I'll be able to move my ticker down another lb, yay! :)

Today I am staying OP because the scale has finally started moving in the right direction again, but it's going very sloooowly, and I don't want to do anything to jeopardize the progress I've already made. So even though it's my low-calorie day, I am sticking to it, and maybe tomorrow the scale will tell me my efforts have paid off a little bit more.

I am staying on plan today because it is the best thing that I can do for myself and my family. I am tired of being overweight, and I am serious for the first time in my life. I can't wait to see what I look like 80 lbs. lighter! :)

Robin41
09-04-2007, 10:51 AM
I'm on plan today because it is hot and humid and I'm retaining water like crazy. My fingers look like little vienna sausages. I don't mind the water weight for a couple of days but I'm staying on plan so it doesn't turn into real weight gain.

Soon2BFitChick
09-04-2007, 11:08 AM
My reason for staying OP today is that I want to not be so fatigued at the end of the day. When I was about 25 lbs lighter than now, I had tons more energy. So I'd really like to see how I feel at 55 lbs less. :dance:

I NEED to be OP today because to be quite honest, I really don't feel like being OP. But I need to overcome that "blah" feeling and suck it up and just do it already. I need to stop letting myself get into these few days of "slipping". So far they've not been completely detrimental to my loss, but I know if I keep it up, they will be.

Same here, after 7 weeks you think it would be easier but I am starting to slump back into not wanting to go to the gym, thank goodness for my silly husband who goes to kickboxing classes with me. 6'5'' skinny as ever and no rhythm but he goes with me just to get me there.

So I am staying on plan to day cause if not I will have wasted this great start to my journey and I really want to be in onderland by xmas by the new year, or at least right about to be:)

I'm on plan because when I came home last night and looked to see what was for leftovers, I saw my mom's chicken parm and I seriously considered it for a second and then realized that I'd only be sabotaging myself. And I'll have you know my mom's chicken parm is awesome.

I'm taking it as a sign that I'm starting to have this healthy mindset firmly in my grasp and to not be on plan would only serve to weaken the grasp.

This is a weekend we started planning way back in February and my plan has me exactly where I was hoping I'd be at this time.

The One reason I'm staying on-plan today: When I retire, I want to travel, to volunteer for my favorite charities (like Habitat for Humanity) to hopefully spend time playing with my grandchildren. If I don't lose this weight and start exercising, I'll be sitting on the couch in my later years!

Soon2BFitChick
09-06-2007, 09:30 AM
The reason I'm staying OP today is that I'm exercising more lately and I don't want it to be for nothing! So my food has to stay right and it'll all work together to get me to where I want to be! :dance:

I'm staying on plan today because the scale hasn't moved much last week and this week. Which usually means if I stay the course, instead of deciding it's not worknig and getting lazy, I'll have a good drop next week.

I could have written this. For some reason this concept has now clicked for me when it never did before. I used to not be able to see past this week's weigh-in. Now it just seems so much more obvious that doing the right things will pay off in the long run.

I'm staying OP today because my TOM started this morning. After going crazy all weekend because my weight is not going down, it was such a relief to see why! (It's a little early, so I was worried that the weight was just not budging because my body hates me.) Which means that if I stay OP, at the end of the week I should see a loss. I didn't cheat this weekend even though I was frustrated and craving chocolate, so there's no reason to start now. I have my fingers crossed for two pounds, but as long as it's lower than 213, I'll take it.

In addition to the other, usual reasons I have for staying on plan, I've thought of another one to add to my list. Next May, I'll be taking the girls in my Girl Scout troop to an area wide campout. The last two years when we've gone and gone on the group hike I have felt like I was about to pass out. I am determined that this time, I WILL NOT have any trouble keeping up. Heck, the leader who used to lead them all the time quit, so maybe I'll even volunteer and lead it. But the only way to both either of those is to stay on plan so that when that campout comes around I'll be in better shape.

The One reason I'm staying on-plan today: Because its working!

All of my "before" pictures were on our old computer that crashed. I've been so sad that I wouldnt have any pictures for comparison. My Hubby (my hero!) was able to retrieve the pictures from the old hard drive yesterday. I was amazed when I saw the pictures of myself from last December. Wow! Everyday, I look in the mirror and I can't tell that I've lost weight. The number on the scale is different and my clothes size is smaller, but I don't think I look different. I was wrong...I can see the weight loss in my pictures. My stomach is less round, my butt is less bubbly, my arms are smaller....and my face is smaller. I've found renewed motivation and I can't wait to get even smaller!

I'm on plan today because if I stick to plan, I'm looking at a sensational weigh in tomorrow - currently down 2 1/2 lbs on last week.

Because I weigh in tomorrow morning and I'm really scared it's going to show no loss. I've been on plan all week but the scale hasn't been reflecting it this time. So, I'm hoping I get a happy surprise in the morning! :)

I'm staying OP because I need to break this plateau. I don't have any other choice. Besides I still feel good even though the scale isn't going down. Its not going up either.

I stayed OP today because I know I will end up with more MS flares... and the months I'll be confined to my own mind will drive me crazy if I fail.

I'm staying on plan today because the scale is still showing me in the 160s and I like that!

I've been fighting the same 10 pounds for the last two months. I'm ready to get this fight overwith, and the only way to do that is to stay on plan.

The One reason I'm staying on-plan today: I want to wear my incentive jeans. I squeezed into my size 22's yesterday....barely. If I don't want to breath or sit down, I could wear them now.:D But, in about 15 pounds, I can probably truly wear them.

My ONE reason for staying on plan today is.....we had a big family reunion this weekend, and although I didn't eat like I used to, I still had things I normally would not eat. SO - we're home now and 5 days till weigh in, and I want to be less than 187!

I did the thing that I have heard before- I ate a fast food and got sick this weekend. It was a special occasion. I spent my calories unwisely and was miserable for part of yesterday.

Today I am on plan because I learned my lesson yesterday.

I'm staying on plan today because I am disgusted with myself for the way I ate yesterday. I was enjoying a bbq with my sisters and their families, we talked and laughed and sat around and ate and ate. I ate too much and things I should not have eaten at all. In addition to already have a small gain a Saturday's WI, I'm just totally disgusted with myself. So today is OP with nothing but fruit and veggies in between healthy low point meals.

Because it's 2 more days to weigh-in and based on prelims its going to be a pretty good one. We've had a death in the family so today I will be resisting South Dakota funeral food like ham sandwiches with butter, potato salad, pasta salad, and brownies.

I'm on plan today because I caught a glimpse of my husband and I in a window yesterday and I wasn't hugely bigger than him anymore. I'm a little taller than he is but I've probably only got 20 pounds on him and that feels good.

OP today because so far, my plan to wow hubby with my loss when he comes home hasn't worked too well....scale has stayed pretty steady. But, there are still two weeks til he returns. And, I am 99% sure I am retaining water since TOM will be here in the next couple of days, so I expect that to go away soon. I hope, anyway.

I'm on plan today because I want to prove to myself that I can work different shifts and still stay on plan, despite my routine being changed.

I am staying on plan today to try to undo the last three days of horrendus eating. Starting over again.......I guess I will forever be "starting over" but at least I am not giving up......that is a huge plus.
