There are many reasons to stay on plan today...but, this post is about the ONE reason you will stay with it today.

Let's share.

I’ll stay with my plan today (and I already refused to pick up sugar waffles this morning that a co-worker brought to work—so not worth it) because I feel great and I’ll be going to a water park this weekend and want to look my best in my bikini...I am receiving a lot complements whenever I wear it... so why wouldn’t I keep myself on track???
:carrot:

I'll stay on plan today because I feel so amazing about the journey that I'm on right now. I'm finally seeing some progress and it is so exciting.

Parveen

I will stay on the plan because I can run 3 minutes and walk 2 without dying! and people are starting to notice my weight loss!

Beverlyjoy
08-01-2008, 12:36 PM
I will stay on my plan today because I seem to have some momentum going here (stringing together many healthy days in a row) and I like it!! :)

mrs dorson
08-01-2008, 06:10 PM
because i did well in july (6 pounds) but i could have done better with less cheats and treats.

and today starts off a new month.

this is how we do it

I will stay on plan today because it seems like every time I think I've hit a plateau, I lose a couple pounds a few days later. Let's hope that's what happens this time! ;)

coachie
08-01-2008, 11:04 PM
Because I lost 20 pounds in the month of July....and I'm not stopping now!

Farseashore
08-01-2008, 11:33 PM
I will stay on plan today because my anniversary is a month away.

Naytally
08-01-2008, 11:42 PM
I will stay on plan today because my scale is broken and until it is fixed, I will not know how much weight I am losing, and this excites me!

Beverlyjoy
08-02-2008, 07:29 AM
I will stay on my plan today because I really want to get to my mini goal of 194. You see when I reach 194....my next mini goal is 189 (yes, the 180's). I really want it!

thistoo
08-02-2008, 08:34 AM
I don't post much, but know I'm over here quietly rooting for you, Beverly! We reached onederland at the same time and it's fun to watch your progress. I know you're going to get to the 180s very soon!

Today I will stay on plan because things were kind of on hold in July, and this month I want to post a great loss.

starchild
08-02-2008, 10:05 AM
I will stay OP today because I am amazed at this progress and I just want to keep it going!!!

Farseashore
08-02-2008, 10:46 AM
I will stay on plan today because weigh-in is only 3 days away and I really want more than a 0.2 loss!

Lyn2007
08-02-2008, 11:25 AM
Beverlyjoy, I am rooting for you too! I know you can do it!

I am staying on plan today because I am finally back to my ticker weight and I am *not interested* in going above it again. Ever.

foxxy511
08-02-2008, 11:55 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I got to lower my WW points today and I'm in the 240's again!

Beverlyjoy
08-02-2008, 12:47 PM
Thanks, Thistoo and Lynn! I surely do appreciate your support. I am a turtle moving slow but, moving forward.

Thistoo...I'll reach the 180's, too. I am thrilled for your great progress.
Lynn - I am so glad you are back to your pre-vacation weight. That's a wonderful accomplishment, so quickly.

Naytally
08-02-2008, 12:59 PM
I will stay on plan today because the owners of our community are throwing their yearly $70,000 picknick for the community members and this means pulled pork, chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs and a LOT of homemade 'dishes to pass'

I am retaining water like a mofo so I'm not going to eat anything that will make it even worse, and this means most of the food mentioned above!

Protein shake and fiber one bar, here I come!

mrs dorson
08-02-2008, 01:20 PM
it is the first of august. i can sense that fall is around the corner (hey, i live in oregon-it is cool here :dizzy:).

and there are 21 weeks to christmas day.

22 to the end of the year.

i really really really want to have lost 50 pounds...actually 60 so i can be in ONEDERLAND!!!!!


this is how we do it..........(still stuck in my head):D


:carrot::carrot::carrot::carrot:-------------that carrot gets down,huh?

Tai
08-02-2008, 03:16 PM
I am staying on plan today because I want to be able to fit into some new fall clothes when they come out.

Beverly, I know you will reach your next mini goal and will cruise right into the 180's!

Star2Be
08-02-2008, 04:42 PM
I am staying on plan today because I can't believe how differently my clothes fit me already, and I'm only down 16 pounds! This is so cool. :D

x meowkat x
08-02-2008, 05:05 PM
I will stay on plan today because I'm only about 8 lbs. away from a 10% loss, and I'd love to see that on the scale! I lost about 5 lbs. during July...if I get my butt in gear and start exercising again I know I can lose 8 during August!

Dumplin
08-02-2008, 05:19 PM
i am staying on plan because........I also want to lost 10% of my weight and I am almost there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

Beverlyjoy
08-03-2008, 05:16 AM
I will stay on my plan today because it feels good to have structure around food - because, for me, there seems to be no in between. It's either on plan or bingeing. I'll take being ON PLAN!

Thanks, Tai!

thistoo
08-03-2008, 10:51 AM
I'm staying OP because I'm down two pounds, and I really want to be able to change my ticker again on Wednesday. :)

Lyn2007
08-03-2008, 12:33 PM
Because holy cow, I got to change my ticker FINALLY! It has been exactly ONE MONTH since I have gotten to move that ticker down. And it feels good! I wanna do it again, real soon :)

Farseashore
08-03-2008, 10:38 PM
I'm staying on plan today because Lyn has reminded us that Christmas is right around the corner, followed by a happy, healthy New Year & new me!

SunshineCA
08-04-2008, 02:49 AM
I stayed on plan today because I'm tired of yo-yo dieting! No more of that for me! :)

Beverlyjoy

because I'm finally happy with myself for sticking to something that will change my life for the better

thistoo
08-04-2008, 11:07 AM
Because I'm not far enough away from 200 for comfort yet. I have my sights set on the 170s; if I'm reallyreallyreally good, maybe I'll see them by the end of the month.

KateB
08-04-2008, 11:14 AM
I am staying on plan today becuase I have recommitted. I have been "coasting" for the past month although I have not gained anyweight, I haven't lost any either. I have recommitted to my plan and more iportantly myself!!

GirlyGirlSebas
08-04-2008, 12:06 PM

Beth, so glad to see you back here! Missed you.

dcapulet
08-04-2008, 12:59 PM
i am staying on plan today because looking my best for my 30th birthday in 6 months is very important to me!

wisher
08-04-2008, 01:09 PM
Because I recently entered into a pact with 4 coworkers to lose weight and get into shape by the end of the year and we'll be charting our weight and body fat percentage every 2 weeks. Now I'm going to be held accountable!

Star2Be
08-04-2008, 01:09 PM
I am staying on plan today because I do not want all of the foods I've already resisted to be for naught! :D

Yesterday I resisted peanut butter cups and tortilla chips (my FAVORITE foods), huge portions of pasta at a family-style restaurant with friends, AND the s'mores they made at the bonfire afterwards... Sheesh!

Farseashore
08-04-2008, 02:28 PM
I will stay on plan today because tomorrow is weigh-in and I'd like to see my ticker move this week!

Beverlyjoy
08-05-2008, 05:23 AM
I will stay on my plan today because my efforts seem to be heading me in the right direction.

gr8smyl99
08-05-2008, 08:02 AM
I will stay on plan today because I want to! And because I feel better when I'm being good to myself :)

thistoo
08-05-2008, 08:04 AM
Go Beverly! I knew you'd hit your mini-goal this time. :) Congratulations!

I am staying OP today because it's working. And when it comes right down to it, there's really no other reason!

Tai
08-05-2008, 10:36 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I like the sense of control and pride it gives me.

Beverlyjoy, you blew right past your last mini goal! Way to go!! 180's here you come.

dcapulet
08-05-2008, 10:48 AM
I will stay on plan today because working the plan works for me.

KateB
08-05-2008, 11:20 AM
Because I have a pair of white denim capris in my closet that I WILL wear!!!

Lyn2007
08-05-2008, 11:40 AM
Holy cow Beverlyjoy, I haven't been paying attention to your ticker. You are seriously just melting!!

So my reason for staying on plan today is, to catch up to Beverlyjoy. LOL :)

Farseashore
08-05-2008, 02:01 PM
I will stay on plan today because there's a smaller size in the clothing stores calling my name!

Beverlyjoy
08-05-2008, 03:05 PM
Thanks, Tai, Thistoo and Lyn!!! :) Finally - that cheerleader at my ticker did some work! Yes...so glad to have my next mini goal in the 180's. So exciting!

Lyn...come on into onederland. There's lots of room for you. I am saving you a spot. :)

Beverlyjoy
08-06-2008, 05:04 AM
I will stay on my plan today because I seem to have a new found momentum and it feels good.

I will stay OP today because I'm only four pounds from the halfway mark for my goal.

gr8smyl99
08-06-2008, 08:03 AM
I'm staying on plan today because I want to have a better - more sane relationship with food, and I want to be in control.

thistoo
08-06-2008, 09:39 AM
Ooh! Also, because I just realized that in one more pound I can change my avatar again!

Naytally
08-06-2008, 10:54 AM
I will stay on plan today because I didn't go to last night's weigh in for my weight loss challenge because my body was holding on to water weight and I did not want to put money in the penalty jar! I am hoping to lose at least 3 pounds by my next weigh in (Tuesday) so I can be down a total of 21 for the weight loss challenge so far :) I'm still in the lead with 6% down!

*does a little dance*

Lyn2007
08-06-2008, 12:23 PM
Because I am freaking SERIOUS this time, you lousy blobs of fat, GET OFF MY BODY. You are being EVICTED.

Star2Be
08-06-2008, 01:29 PM
I will stay on plan today because I didn't yesterday (the first day in a looong time!) and I felt TERRIBLE about it. I know it's a little unhealthy to feel so guilty about one slip-up, but I can't shake the feeling that I gained 5 pounds overnight... I'm afraid to look at the scale today! But the bright side is that I can use this experience to keep me from ever wanting to overeat again.

gumboot
08-06-2008, 06:14 PM
Well, my mother is in the hospital AGAIN for weight related health issues. This is the fifth time this year.

I am staying on plan today because I want to take care of myself so I don't end up in her shoes in a few years.

valpal23
08-06-2008, 09:31 PM
because I may not be in control about where I live or my current job but I can control what I eat and my activity level

mollymom
08-07-2008, 05:39 AM
I will stay on my plan today because I don't want to turn fifty and wake up fat and unhappy AGAIN on my birthday!

Beverlyjoy

I will stay on my plan today because I feel better when I stay on my plan and feel lousy when I don't.

gr8smyl99
08-07-2008, 07:51 AM
I will stay on plan today because that bloaty feeling is finally gone - and I feel so much better now than I did when I was overeating :)

GirlyGirlSebas

I will stay on plan today because I've hit my first plateau and I will not let it get me down!!

WarMaiden
08-07-2008, 01:13 PM
I'm staying on plan today because I'm constantly tinkering with little changes here and there to help with my weight loss and overall health, and consistency to plan makes it possible to test what works and what doesn't.

dcapulet
08-07-2008, 01:15 PM
I will stay on plan today because I don't have a good reason not to.

Farseashore

I will stay on plan today because I want to be healthy.

Naytally

I will stay on plan today because it is Thursday... The day I usually allow myself to splurge, but I will not!

H8cake
08-07-2008, 01:55 PM
I will stay on plan today because I love how strong I'm feeling. I hauled the trash can out last night and I was amazed at how much easier it is now. I used to huff and puff and drag myself up the driveway. It feels so good to be stronger and lighter. My hubby loves picking me up now too, I still worry he's gonna hurt himself though.

Naytally
08-07-2008, 01:59 PM
OH, also, NSV! I am staying on plan today because I got my blood pressure checked and its WAY down from where it was 6 months ago - it WAS 145/90 (prehypertension) and now its 118/65 (NORMAL!) This just means that I'm on the right path and becoming healthier every day I stay on plan!

Sciana
08-07-2008, 02:27 PM
I'm staying on plan today because today is day 13 of being OP and it finally feels easier to do it! And, I've lost 6 lbs since starting two weeks ago!!!

Star2Be
08-07-2008, 04:00 PM
I will stay on my plan today because I feel better when I stay on my plan and feel lousy when I don't.
Ain't THAT the truth? My first (and LAST) binge since starting my plan has definitely taught me that. I don't care if it was my birthday - NEVER again!

I will stay on plan today because I finally got to move my ticker and it felt great! I've been going back and forth between my last ticker weight and my current weight for a few days, so I didn't feel comfortable changing it yet. But when I stepped on the scale today, it read exactly 245.0 lbs, so I'm claiming it! Yea! :dancer:

opimisticchick72
08-07-2008, 04:03 PM
Because I have finally put it through my seemingly thick head that I am worth it.

thistoo
08-07-2008, 04:30 PM
Yay, Amy! You are *totally* worth it.

Today I'm staying OP because TOM is looming, and my hormones will not be the boss of me. You do not get M&Ms just because you have to work tonight, hormones, so shut it.

Dumplin

I will stay on plan today because eating well and exercise help reduce stress, and I'm feeling a little stressed.

GirlyGirlSebas
08-08-2008, 10:48 AM
I will stay on-plan today because I love how it makes me feel!

SephyFowl
08-08-2008, 11:12 AM
Because I am freaking SERIOUS this time, you lousy blobs of fat, GET OFF MY BODY. You are being EVICTED.

That makes me feel good! I like that mantra.

OH, also, NSV! I am staying on plan today because I got my blood pressure checked and its WAY down from where it was 6 months ago - it WAS 145/90 (prehypertension) and now its 118/65 (NORMAL!) This just means that I'm on the right path and becoming healthier every day I stay on plan!
How exciting!

I hope you girls don't mind I am jumping in on this thread. :)
I am staying OP today because it gets easier the longer I go without a binge.

valpal23
08-08-2008, 11:41 AM
because I just finished one week of being 85% on plan. and I will do likewise for the week coming up :)

I will stay on my plan today because I lost three pounds in the last two weeks after very very slow weight loss. Just maybe, if I stay on my plan another day, I'll show another weight loss next week.

Dumplin

I'm staying OP today because TOM is awful this time around, and I don't want to end up gaining because of it.

valpal23
08-10-2008, 12:16 PM

Naytally

I am staying on plan today because I want to prove to my fiance that I can be the strong woman he needs me to be. I want to prove to my dad that I can lose 50+ lbs. I want to prove to my mom that I can be thin. I want to prove to my brother that I am not a "beached whale". I want to have more self confidence, and mainly, I want to have more energy and be more productive so my fiance does not get stressed out and have his ulcer flare up due to the stress of me just not doing anything.

I've avoided way too many social situations and not done so many things because I was afraid of being the fat girl and having people ridicule me. I want to be beautiful. I want to go out on the dance floor with my fiance and be able to dance all over the place and not have people laugh at me because of my fat bouncing around.

I will stay on plan today, and the rest of the week, because I want to see thats scale move down into the 260's and I want to get rid of half of myself already!

I am staying on plan today because one of my friends wants to go to Cedar Point (the best amusement park in the WORLD, conveniently located about 45 minutes away from my house ;)) this THURSDAY. I've been there about 100 times and even had a season pass the past couple summers, but I've never been able to ride the best 2 rides there, because I couldn't fit on them. It would be the most amazing thing ever if I could actually ride this time!!! :crossed:

My philosophy exactly! Though I don't call it "cheating" per se, because I always make sure I stay below my daily calories, heh. But if I'm tempted to use up some calories from something not-so-healthy, I make sure that I only indulge in the thing that I'm really, really craving. For example my favorite dessert is anything with peanut butter and chocolate (Mmmmmm... :D) so it's easier to resist desserts that don't have those flavors because I think, if I'm going to eat something unhealthy, it has to be something I REALLY want!! I'm glad I've discovered that attitude. ;)
