:wave: Oooooh it's February... it'll be springtime before we know it! :wave:

This thread is all about the one reason we're all staying on plan today.. it helps to keep us sane and focus and can be a little or big thing!

Hope no one minds me starting this thread now... it's only a couple of hours until February here so here goes...

My one reason for staying on plan today is... it's my birthday! What better gift can I give myself than being fit and healthy :carrot:

Thank you for starting this thread :)

...because I am starting over with a vengeance, and I'm giving my poor body a chance to recuperate from last night.
...because I believe in treating myself with love and care, both physically and mentally.
...because being slim feels better then anything tastes!

I'm staying on plan this February because I started on Jan. 4 and I am feeling so much better already. Even though I know that no one else can see a difference, I can FEEL a difference!

I can't wait to feel even more fantastic (and 10lbs lighter) by March 1 !

Woo Hoo!

The one reason I will stay on my food plan is that I really want to have a sane relationship with food - if I plan my food and work thru the day to eat well - it's good practice for what I hope will be a lifetime.

I'm on plan today because my great weekend plans just got ruined by having to work. In the old days I'd have felt like I was entitled to a plateload of brownies to make myself feel better. Now I'm going to stick with my plan and unload my anger on the idiot who didn't do his job and ruined my weekend. Seems much healthier, at least for me. Maybe not for him.

My scale went up today and I have to bring it down!!!

famograham
02-01-2008, 02:24 PM
Because I went overboard last night, and I want to keep that to ONE day!
One evening of wild abandon, does not a failure make!

valpal23
02-01-2008, 02:58 PM
Because the number i saw on the scale this morning would make me estatic at my next WI.

Because I've forgotten how I used to look like when I was 120lbs once upon a time. But I do know it feels good!

Cassie - I love your comment!! And it's so appropriate for how I'm feeling today.

I'm staying on plan because I want to try & disassociate food with guilt! As long as I plan for it - and adjust my other meals - I should be able to eat anything.

I am staying on plan today, because it looks like I could lose a total of 20 pounds by Valentine's Day! I never said that "goal" outloud (or on 3FC), because I wasn't sure if it was possible. Now, it's looking quite do-able!

Also, I lost 3 pounds this last week, and I want to keep up the momentum.

Margaritachic
02-02-2008, 06:42 PM
Because I want to be a good role model for my daughter (born 12/5/01!)

I am staying on plan today because I ate extra calories last night (not the end of the world in the long run - if you know what I mean)- but, it feels better just to stay on plan.

aerotigergirl

I'm staying on plan today because the indiscretions from Super Bowl Sunday have made it to the scale and I don't want to be discouraged by it -- so I'm just going to keep moving along.

GirlyGirlSebas
02-05-2008, 09:40 AM
My One reason for today: I want to get into the 220's! I was just reviewing my weight loss for last year. On October 29, I finally got into the 220's.....then stayed there for a measily 2 weeks. Since then, I've played aroundwith the same 5 pounds....231-236. I think its about time to move on down!

I am staying on my plan today because I really want to have hope for the future....that there's a healthier person inside of me who doesn't always need to use food to be part of every emotion. I'll keep plugging along.

gr8smyl99
02-06-2008, 07:27 AM
Rhonda - I know you've been beating yourself up a bit for not moving down. BUT - just think if you weren't watching - that you could have gained weight!

I'm staying on plan today because I need to get out of this funk! I feel like the "honeymoon" is over - and I'm feeling overwhelmed with the amount of weight I need to lose.....

But - I know that if I don't stick with it - I'm only going to feel worse!

GirlyGirlSebas
02-06-2008, 08:28 AM
Yep, Beth...I could have gained instead of maintained. So, that is a silver lining.:) However, I'm not content to stay here any longer. So, my One reason for today: Get out of the 230's!

I'm staying on plan today because I want to be healthy.

just_a_dreamy1
02-06-2008, 11:53 AM
Hmm...let me count the ways:

- I have a bunch of healthy food in my fridge that must not go to waste - I enjoy it too much!
- I want to go out to dinner on Valentine's and feel like I deserve a decadent meal.
- Each week that I don't binge is another $20 to my YMCA fund for next month!
- I need my money to pamper myself, not to waste on food.
- My face looks like a balloon after yesterday, and I want it to look normal again!
- My school bag is loaded up with healthy goodies to keep me from being hungry.
- I'm broke, so I can't buy junk!
- I want to look great in a bikini this summer.

famograham
02-06-2008, 06:48 PM
Because I REALLY want to wear the sexy black dress that Rudy bought me for Christmas two years ago!
I got it at my lowest, tried it on...it fit! It was a size large from Suzy Shier...I couldn't believe it! Then I proceeded to gain it all back and NEVER got to wear it out of the house :cry:

I want to wear it next Christmas.....or have it be too big!!! If it's too big..I'll make very good use of it while it does fit!

just_a_dreamy1

Ummm, because I have this HUGEST crush on Vin Diesel, and I just KNOW if I am thin and fit he will notice me!!!! How is that for Fanstasy Island!!;)

gr8smyl99
02-08-2008, 07:16 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I'm tired of being uncomfortable!

For the past 2 days I've been sitting in a chair where the arms are in a weird place, and are pushing into my fat thighs! Next year when I come out to this client, I want to be able to sit comfortably!

GirlyGirlSebas
02-08-2008, 08:20 AM
My One reason for today: My weigh-in is Monday and I want to be in the 220's.

Beverlyjoy
02-08-2008, 08:53 AM
I will stay on my plan today because it's important that I eat very carefully until they figure out my back pain and it's relationship to my gallstones. I will eat small meals, not real spicy and low fat....I don't want to trigger a gall bladder attack.

PS...I now have a new reason for staying within my plan.

Janis427

just_a_dreamy1
02-08-2008, 11:56 AM
luckyducky,

:lol:!! That was cute :)

The ONE reason I'm staying on plan today is because eating sensibly and taking care of myself is the ONE thing that I can control in my crazy life. I refuse to blame everything on the world, and eat as a result. **** happens. It doesn't mean that life stops...nor does the world revolve around me. I'm not using stress as a lame excuse to eat.

:cb: Go, me!

Cassie501107
02-08-2008, 04:28 PM
Ummm, because I have this HUGEST crush on Vin Diesel, and I just KNOW if I am thin and fit he will notice me!!!! How is that for Fanstasy Island!!;)

luckyducky
02-08-2008, 10:14 PM
Heee heee, I haven't had a crush on anyone for years and years, ( Orlando Bloom doesn't count,... he is WAY too young for me...). But, I have been watching all Vin Diesel's movies ( um went out and bought some more... ) and someday I will have a crush on a real life fantasy man... But, not today!! Today, I am staying on plan because it makes me feel better knowing that my battle against emotional eating is turing in my favor!!

gr8smyl99
02-09-2008, 07:27 AM

My reasons for today: It's PMS time of the month, so I want to eat everything in sight. I do, then I feel terrible for giving in to cravings when I know the right thing to do is just be sensible. Also, I desperately want to be under 210 at my WI on Thursday. Not sure I'm going to make it...:?:

Beverlyjoy

I love this thread :) Every once in awhile, I get an inspiring email that reminds me why it's worth it to stay OP!

Today, I'm staying on plan because...

Eating Well's article on binge eating really gave me hope. One of the points that it made is that bingeing becomes a habit that we associate with comfort. However, it is possible to train our brains to no longer associate bingeing with comfort...instead, we can start it thinking of more healthy ways to cope.

So the reason that I'm staying OP is because I'm retraining my brain!

It also pointed out that making things off limits makes them like a forbidden fruit. I'm not denying myself anything anymore, I'm just going to work it in or make a healthier version at home. I'm also going to make sure that I get enough to eat. This is about a healthy lifestyle, not a diet!

Lyn2007
02-22-2008, 01:05 PM
Because I am sooo close to the 230's!

Beverlyjoy
