Happy October 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.

I am on plan today, because I feel like crawling back in bed and pulling the covers over my head, but I will not, I will exercise, I will eat right!!! There is no reason not to, I like what is happening to me, and I will not be off plan because I am feeling bad!!

I'm staying OP today because I am about an inch away from fitting into my ball gown!

I'm also OP today because I've been nasty sick and it feels good to be well enough to exercise again!

This coming weekend we will be visiting the University that our son wants to attend next fall, so I won't be home for the weekly weigh in. In my eyes, that this just that much more of a reason to stay on plan, rather than an excuse to be off plan!

I am staying on plan today because being on plan is the only way that I can remain at a healthy weight. And I never, ever want to be anything else but a healthy weight.

I'm staying on plan today because I feel rubbish. I think I have another dose of tonsillitis/strep throat coming and I have PMT bloating so look like a puffer fish. But I got up and went running this morning (and it actually helped) and I'm eating a nice clean lunch and I'm enjoying it :D

I am on plan today because the scale went up a little( TOM's ??) and it is disappointing, but I will not let it get me down!!! I am worth this and I will not let anything stop me!!!!!!

I'm on plan today because with two weeks to go before my next weigh in, I'm possitive that I can be in the 140's if I just stick to the plan!

I see your ticker went down! :cheer2:

LaurieDawn
10-02-2007, 02:51 PM
Tricia - So very, very close to being overweight. Until the scale starts cooperating with me again, I'll live vicariously through you.;)

My one reason - Because my dad has serious health conditions that losing weight would help resolve, and after seeing my success when I went to visit him, he determined that he would do it. I've become his accountability partner, and if I fail, that would have an adverse impact on him. So, I just won't fail.

I have no choice. I gained 3 lbs in 2 days over the weekend.

25 is a huge milestone! You're in the groove now, baby!

I was rushing to go out the door to the gym, and I've been needing to do laundry in a serious way. (Just got it done! Yay! That should be an NSV in itself.) Previously, when I was in a bind for the gym, I'd sneak a shirt from my husband. Without even thinking, I tried it today, and it was too big to wear. Mind you - I'm okay with some oversize, but I felt like my 3YO trying on my 13YO's clothes. Nice.

Edit: I just realized that I posted an NSV in the One Reason thread. :o But I'm leaving it because I want to keep my "attagirl" to Amber there!

I HOPE EVERYONE FEELS BETTER SOON. I JUST WENT BACK AND READ THE THREAD FROM THE BEGINNING AND ALOT OF YOU HAVE BEEN SICK LATELY. EAT THOSE VEGETABLES AND TAKE THOSE VITAMINS.
The one reason I'm staying OP today is I finally hit the 160's and I feel so good. Here I come 150's. I can't believe I said that I haven't weighed that in over 20 years.

hellokitty81668

Because I don't feel good about myself right now, and going off plan will only make it much, much worse.

royalsfan1
10-05-2007, 10:55 AM
Because the scale seems stalled this week. After 2 OK weeks on weigh-in I'm now in another stall. I'm wondering if this is just the way it's going to be now that I've got less and less to lose? Anyway, I'm stalled again and I don't like it!

I am on plan today because the past 3 days I wasn't food wise... I didn't go way off plan, but went off enough that I probably gained a pound. So today I will break the bad cycle. I will not allow this to stop my goal, I will acheive it.

I'm on plan because I indulged a little extra for Thanksgiving Dinner, and I'm happy to say that instead of throwing my hands in the air and saying "well I've wrecked the diet, might as well eat this entire bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy" i got up this morning and had tea and some cereal and fruit and feel in control of myself. That's a cool feeling ~ like I've been eating like a child for so many years, the thought of cake enters my head and *BOING* i eat a cake! Now I feel like the grown up saying "well, if after you have all your nutritious food you still feel like it, maybe on little bite" weird, but awesome!

Because I want to feel good about myself when I lay down to sleep tonight.:)

Cassie - I LOVE this one! Yes - I torture myself at night when I'm not on plan. When I am on plan, I am almost always a little hungry (I stop eating several hours prior to bed, per Bob Greene's recommendation), but proud. So, if you're good with it, I'm borrowing it. I also want to feel good about myself tonight when I lay down to go to sleep!

GirlyGirlSebas
10-10-2007, 04:01 PM
(I stop eating several hours prior to bed, per Bob Greene's recommendation

I'm just curious, why does Bob recommend this? Do you sleep okay? Sometimes, I have trouble sleeping (hormones...argghh!) and, if I'm hungry, I have even more trouble.

LaurieDawn
10-10-2007, 04:52 PM
I'm just curious, why does Bob recommend this? Do you sleep okay? Sometimes, I have trouble sleeping (hormones...argghh!) and, if I'm hungry, I have even more trouble.

I used to have trouble sleeping when I was hungry, too - and that may actually be why I dream about food three or four nights a week. (Oh, man - if dreams had calories - I would be rivaling the 1000-pound man right now!!) The book that I read said that sleep is better and more restful if you go to bed with very little in your stomach. I know that, now, when I eat close to bedtime, I wake up still feeling full, and don't want to eat anything for several hours after I wake. I used to feel this way all of the time in the mornings, and I'd be a little nauseous on most mornings because of it. Now, I wake up completely ravenous, and I am so excited for my high-fiber cereal or my fat-free yogurt or whatever I'm having for breakfast that morning. It took me a while to get out of the habit of snacking "just a little," but I remember something Oprah said in relation to this advice. She had been losing weight with Bob, and got stuck at about 180. She said that it didn't seem to matter what she did - the scale just wouldn't move. It wasn't until she gave up eating anything after 7:00 p.m. (not my cut-off time, BTW, as my bedtime is later than hers) that she moved off of the plateau. Now, she says she won't even let a single grape pass her lips. I find that this level of restriction is really good for me, as I have a tendency to eat "just a few high-fiber crackers" that can easily turn into many crackers and escalate into other foods.

Sandi
10-10-2007, 04:55 PM
Food is NOT what I dream about! :lol: (unless you count the strawberries & whipped cream!)

Cassie501107
10-10-2007, 04:59 PM
Well of course you can "use" it! :lol:

I am the same way though..if I've been off plan for the day, I feel terrible at night. If I've had a good day, however, I really lay there and give myself a mental "pat on the back", because I feel proud that I've had another successful day on this journey.

Doing well today!

Yeah Lyn -- congratulations!!! :)

Okay, I'm a night owl, so if you don't mind, I'll post for tomorrow --

I'm staying on plan today because I think I realized there is a difference in "my legs feel tight from working out" and "my legs feel tight because I gained 20 lbs in three months"!! I want to go back to the muscles and not the fat!!

Food is NOT what I dream about! :lol: (unless you count the strawberries & whipped cream!)

Too funny!!! :lol3:

Sadly, it's not about strawberries and whipped cream for me in my dreams. Just baked goods, it seems - cookies, donuts, cake. Not even stuff that I normally salivate over in real life.

If I have to hang out in the frigging bedroom all night to avoid food I will. But tonight is going to be on plan, for sure! Who puts the food in my mouth...........................Mug does.

Im staying on plan today and this weekend because I dont want to undo all the hard work I did this week. i will not binge over the weekend because I am worth it. I am worth not sabatoging my efforts with a few minutes of stuffing of face. I am so happy when I see the scale go down, and I want that feeling again.

:carrot:

I am staying on plan today because I want to be healthy. My nuclear family; mom, dad and sister are all having health issues these past few years. I see that as a wake up call for me to take better care of myself. I have been both gently prodding and praying that my sister will quit smoking. She was recently diagnosed with COPD and she smokes several packs of cigarettes a day. She is having a hard time quitting. I told her this past Saturday: don't give up trying---I have plans for us for our retirement when we get old and I plan on you being there.

My mom has been working with a R.D. on learning how to count carbs as a diabetic. I sent her a carb counter that she can carry in her purse. She controls her diabetes with her diet and pills. No insulin yet. She has lost weight as a result. I tell her how proud I am of her in how hard she is trying.

Now, to just get my Dad walking. He needs to for his PAD (clogged arteries in his extremeties) but he's almost 80 and he doesn't understand why people walk for the sake of walking. He's from the old-school where you only walked if you wanted to get from one place to another. I told my mom she should give him a short grocery list and then tell him he needs to walk to get it.:^:

I am 1000 miles away so I have to do a lot of coaching over the phone!

Ask any one who is sick---without your health what else is there???:(

Staying on plan today because I'm down 30.4!!!
Tomorrow is weigh in and I want to see just a tad more! When I make it to 281.88 I'll have lost 10% of my original body weight. :woohoo:
This is really working for me this time and I'm not about to blow it now! :yay:

Because I've just restarted (WW, Saturday), because I've gained 12 pounds since August, and because I can't stand looking, feeling, or being this fat any more!

I'm staying on plan today because I've got some penance to do for the weekend, and a whole 5 days to make it up before weigh-in!

Trazey, I love your reason! I wanna see days like this well into my 80s

I'm on plan today because I saw a serious drop on the scale, and because my foot is only aching now, not so painful I can hardly walk.

Because I hope to see a loss tomorrow. And because I again resisted the siren call of the burrito binge.....mainly because I remember how happy I felt last week.

I am staying OP today because the scale was kind to me at WI this morning, and I want to see more kindness next week! I feel like I'm getting stronger, and I love that feeling.

I'm staying OP today because the 270's are calling my name! Thirty pounds are already gone so a couple more should be easy.
