Because I want to make myself and my bf proud. We realized that a lot of our problems came from both of us gaining weight and losing our confidence. I wanna get that back

I am staying on plan today because a new month is a perfect time to turn things around. I'm going to get rid of the pounds I've gained from mistreating myself.

P.S. :wave: Leah!

I will continue to eat on my healthy plan because - yes, it's true - I am getting close to onederland. I want to get there again some day.

I'm staying on plan because...My daughter is doing this and I want to show support by joining her and I am also worth taking the time for myself...it also makes me feel better mentally and physically.

I'm staying on plan because we went out to eat last night and even though I made pretty good choices I want to make sure it doesn't affect the scale this week.

I'm staying on plan because I'm scared of a heart attack. My cholesterol is borderline and my platelets are high so I know I'm high risk.

Because yesterday sucked so badly and I just need to shake it off and keep "gettin' 'er done!"

WebRover

...because I stayed on plan yesterday and dropped that pesky pound I gained last week. I want to keep the scale moving in the right direction. :D

This makes so much sense to me:

"I feel like there's a chance for me to start over.
And if I fall back into the same kind of things I used to do, then...
what am I doing?"

denialisnthappiness
03-02-2008, 05:05 PM
I'm here to fess up.. I fell off... AGAIN. However I caught myself after a week and a half (it was a month and a half 'break' before xmas). I think I've put just over a stone on (say 15lbs?) in that time (flipping heck!) I'm hoping some of that is water weight; if not then so be it - I was the stupid fool that binged when I KNEW what I was doing.

Heh it's not how many times we fall down; merely the fact that we keep picking ourselves back up right?

Onwards and upwards - on plan tomorrow because I feel SO MUCH BETTER when I eat on plan

(and for anyone wavering... falling off with that food... SO wasn't worth it... but you all knew that right ;))

Edit: I feel this sums it up perfectly!

GirlyGirlSebas

I've used this one before, but it's a perpetual motivator for me:

I've been pre-diabetic for years, but I do NOT have to become diabetic. Staying on plan, getting my weight down, and keeping up with exercise is something I can do right now to prevent a more difficult future. So I am staying on plan today!

I'll stay on plan today cuz I've been doing good since I started last month. I'm 199 lbs as of today and I want to keep losing, losing and losing more :)

marauderpig25
03-05-2008, 09:59 AM
I'm staying on plan because I'm tired of the 240s. I started off so quickly and then I aloud myself to cheat in the evenings. Since then I've been at a standstill if not gaining. And Europe will be so much more fun if I'm skinnier than I am now! I don't need to be afraid of loosing the body with which I've grown comfortable, but rather excited to be the me I feel inside. Yup. Corny but true. ;)

cw61
03-05-2008, 10:40 AM
Because this summer I want to walk around in skirts without getting a heat rash or having the fear that my thighs will randomly slap together in a large thunderous clap!

Lyn2007

Because I finally broke out of the 240's after almost 3 MONTHS and I never want to see them again.

I will stay on plan today because overeating will not solve anything in the long run.

gr8smyl99
03-06-2008, 05:54 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I will not stress eat! By NOT letting my boss stress me to the point that I eat, means I have taken a huge step forward :)

Pita09
03-06-2008, 07:19 AM
I just got a job and I will have to tuck my shirt in. If that isn't reason enough to stay on plan, I don't know what is! :eek:

GirlyGirlSebas
03-06-2008, 07:21 AM
Beth, does your boss need another :kickbutt:?

Pita, Congratulations on the new job!

My one reason for today: I want to prove something to myself and others...that I can do this!

Lyn2007

Because when I lose one more pound, I will be at my next goal... 237. I have not been below 237 in over ten years.

:goodscale
I'm staying on plan because being overweight is very difficult. So I ate about 1500 calories and hope I can keep it up. The alternative is to not be on plan, and gain more weight. I also like to buy my clothes off the rack, the main reason I'm on plan is that I won't be able to buy my jeans of the rack anymore. That means the trouble of getting them altered. I know I should be concerned about my health, but the main motivator is fitting my clothes and getting rid of this huge gut.

Beverlyjoy
03-07-2008, 06:25 AM
I will stay on my healthy plan today because I really want to see Onederland. Also, I feel physically better - so, hopefully, it won't be so very hard to do it.

gr8smyl99
03-07-2008, 07:08 AM
Rhonda - you can do this!!! I just know it :)

My reason for today is that I like how I feel when I'm not "stuffed"

marauderpig25
03-07-2008, 09:35 AM
My reason to stay on plan today is because I have a DATE this weekend :dizzy:and I want to look h-o-t hot!! That and we're going to have a drink or two, so I need to make sure I'm good for it.

The reason I will stay on plan today is that eating does not take away foot pain!

GirlyGirlSebas

Because I want to enjoy my weekend without resorting to food for entertainment, relaxation, pampering, etc etc etc.

valpal23
03-08-2008, 10:38 AM
Because 'pushing the envelope' with my food finally caught up with me and I gained a pound this week. No cheating for me today! (and I bought this amazing denim blazer in a sz 16 (actually an 18) yesterday - I want to be able to button it up comfortably!

Lyn2007
03-08-2008, 10:58 AM

Lyn2007

I am staying on plan because this is my life and I don't want it to be wasted hurting myself.

Gela
03-09-2008, 07:50 PM
Because I have had terribly pleurisy and sinusitis for a week now which has kept me from walking so I need to watch my calories even more.

bethz
03-09-2008, 08:45 PM
I am staying on plan because I binged and still stayed within my weight watchers point range...I even amazed myself...LOL :dizzy: Bethz

marauderpig25
03-09-2008, 08:46 PM
joylove26: Yeah, I've checked it out... I mostly go for the recipes as I've only been on the forums since January and haven't gotten too familiar with everyone yet. And I'd love to have a weight loss partner! Although sometimes I need more kicks in the butt than anything. :) I'm adding you to my friends list right now

aerotigergirl

joylove26
03-10-2008, 12:05 AM
McKinzie, I'm with ya on needing the kicks in the butt. They have some really great recipes there and it helps so much when they have the exchanges for them. I'm not usually much of cooker, but I do like trying the recipes to add variety. I need to make sure I don't get bored or I'll slip up.

Beverlyjoy
03-10-2008, 07:02 AM
I am on plan today because I made it thru a few really tough days with sane, thoughtful and healthful eating and I want to continue today.

gr8smyl99

I am on plan today because it works!! And it feels good to see results.... And I want to continue feeling that way :)

marauderpig25
03-10-2008, 09:23 AM
I'm staying on track today because even though my weekend was fantastic, what I ate and drank really shot me back a few lbs. For some reason, I don't mind it so much, but I know it's not good.

joylove26: I get in spurts where I won't want to cook either, but usually what I'll do is cook for the first few days of the week, and then eat leftovers for the rest so I don't have to worry about it so much. Congrats on the 25lb mark! That's awesome! I think you lost 5 lbs and I found them. lol, I'll be better today though. I've got to be.

aerotigergirl
03-10-2008, 09:33 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I am important to me. And, for the first time in my life, I've been able to string together two consistent months full of healthy eating. I want to see how long I can go...

GirlyGirlSebas
03-10-2008, 10:37 AM
Because I had a horrible off-plan weekend and I have no where else to go but back up from here.

pamatga
03-10-2008, 02:56 PM
it feels better than when I don't. I like how I feel these days. In spite of a crappy night's sleep last night , I still feel less fatigued today than when I had 10 hours of sleep but ate crappy!!

I feel healthier every day that I stay on plan.

I never realized how good I could feel until I changed how I ate. Who knew?

julzchiki
03-10-2008, 06:46 PM
I'm staying on plan today because for the last few weeks, I've been having problems with insomnia. Normally, I'm a very good sleeper and have no problems falling or staying asleep. But, as of late I've become increasingly more worried about my weight, getting older, health straining issues, work, school, relationships, life in general. It's worrying me so much that I've actually had problems sleeping. I think it's just another sign how crucial it is that I take control of my addiction with food and love myself. So, today it's necessary for me to stay on plan.

Because I'm feeling exceptionally tired (I only got about 2-3 hours of sleep last night) I can feel that my stress level is high because I'm worried about whether I'll be able to sleep tonight. And, if I don't sleep enough then I can't take care of myself well the next day. At the same time, it's an alarm that is ringing to let me know how crucial this time is for me.

I had a nice healthy salad for lunch today. Yippee! Afterwards (my 2 o'clock sweets temptation period), I wanted to eat something purely for the purpose of eating but I could sense that the desire to do so was purely because I'm tired, stressed, and wanting some food to fill the emptiness. I have Hershey's kisses behind my desk so I allowed myself to 2 of them and I surprassed the chocolates that were in the break kitchen and the cookies in my cabinet. The moment of desire has passed and I've stayed away from further damage. I'm going to start planning what I'm going to eat for dinner tonight when I get home so there are no surprises later.

I'm staying on plan today because it will make me feel more energetic, healthy, and in control. I am writing down what I eat (even the chocolates) and the amount I am drinking. Most importantly, I am going to exercise after work today. I just have to figure out what I'm going to do to move this body.

2beautiful2Bfat
03-10-2008, 07:19 PM
I am so close to my St. Patty's goal that now I hope to surpass it so I need to stay on plan to do that!!

gr8smyl99
03-11-2008, 07:20 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I'm only 3 lbs away from where I quit the last time... and more than 1/2 way to my first mini-goal.

And I think I'm not hating tax season as much since I have more energy, and I'm not angry with myself for eating so poorly. In the past, this time of year was just another excuse to overeat. And then part of me would dread when it was over & I had to start dieting.

Now I'm looking forward to the end so that I can use all this extra energy for fun stuff!!

I'm staying on plan today because PMS is NOT a reason to overeat!! It's bad enough I have to feel cranky - I don't need the additional guilt of overeating!

I feel better when I deal with my feelings, not eat them away :)

Hopefulpinkangel
03-12-2008, 05:57 PM

I'm staying on track today because even though my weekend was fantastic, what I ate and drank really shot me back a few lbs. For some reason, I don't mind it so much, but I know it's not good.

joylove26: I get in spurts where I won't want to cook either, but usually what I'll do is cook for the first few days of the week, and then eat leftovers for the rest so I don't have to worry about it so much. Congrats on the 25lb mark! That's awesome! I think you lost 5 lbs and I found them. lol, I'll be better today though. I've got to be.


Glad ya had a good weekend. I'm sure you will have no problem taking those few lbs back off.

I eat a whole lot of leftovers. When I cook, I intentionally make enough so that I can take it for lunch the next day just so I don't have to fix a whole other meal. Yea, lazy, I know :D

Thanks for the congrats. I'm sorry you found them but I'm not taking them back :p lol We'll just have to find someone who needs them to pass them on to.

My sister had lapband surgery in May 2006. I started my journey in May 2007. She is my older sister - the one who always made fun of my weight through high school - although she is incredibly supportive now. As of today, we are the same weight. So, for today, I am staying on plan so I can weigh less than my older sister. Of course, I hope she keeps up with me - she can just do it a pound behind me!

Im staying on track today so I don't turn out to be that fat mom hahaha. I really love the feeling I am staying healthy and how I feel after I finish my turbo or hip hop abs videos!!!:dust::lifter:

I am staying on the plan today, because I just bought some new jeans and they would like great if I just lost a couple more lbs.

I am staying on plan today because binging and overeating just screws up my head and makes me feel so bad about myself. Also, I am getting my blood labs on Tuesday - and hoping for a good outcome.
