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.

honestly i am a bit frustrated with not losing weight over the last week. i will stay on my plan b/c i am not discouraged by the weight remaining the same, just challenged to try harder. that is today's real motivation.

I will stay on plan today because I need to do this for ME! I need to make sure my needs are the focus, as opposed to those around me. I have a nurturing personality, so it's not easy, but it's time!:D

Thanks Numina, and you are right, it is the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The RCMP was my goal right from the start, two years ago, when I started my lifestyle change. Hard to believe, back then I had a hard time even walking, and now I'm doing cardio and weightlifting and actually in the RCMP system!

Star2Be
02-06-2009, 06:06 PM
I will stay on-plan today because even though some things went a little wrong today (not WL things, just life-in-general things), I can't let myself give in to emotional eating... I just can't.

Also, I have a planned indulgence meal tomorrow night that I've really been looking forward to, and it'll be all the more special if I can do it knowing that I was "good" today. I only have to wait one more day! :p

iminhere
02-06-2009, 08:44 PM
because I hate that sinking feeling first thing in the morning when I remember that I went off plan the day before and I know my morning weigh in will be bad.

Star2Be
02-08-2009, 12:10 AM
I will stay on-plan tomorrow because my planned indulgence tonight was absolutely delicious and I did not feel the slightest bit guilty, but now I'm right back on plan and looking to get a nice this coming week! :cool:

But ya know what? It WAS so much more special knowing that I truly savored every moment of it, cuz it's been so long since I've had anything unhealthy like that. In the past, eating a rich meal (and a delectable vegan dessert! ;)) would have been totally normal for me... An everyday, completely unremarkable kind of event... But instead, this time it was truly special. :)

Farseashore
02-08-2009, 08:49 AM
I will stay on plan today because every moment on plan makes me healthier.

I will stay on-plan today because I worked out last night for the first time in a while and it felt AWESOME. I didn't really want to do it cuz I didn't think it would be fun, but I knew that if I could make myself do it, I'd be sooo proud of myself--and I was! I felt so proud, and so strong and almost like a fit person. And afterwards I slept like a freaking ROCK! :lol:

I, um, kind of deviated from my plan for a bit this morning, because I was extremely disappointed with my weigh-in this week. :( Yes, obviously stuffing my face with chocolates is NOT going to help my weight loss efforts one iota, and I know that, but d*mn it felt good. Anyways, I'm proud to say that I didn't just throw away the rest of the day because of that; I snapped out of it relatively quickly and managed to keep my eating fairly light for the rest of the day! Yay!

Anyways, I will stay totally on-plan TOMORROW because I don't want to have another disappointing weigh-in. I'm so sick of that! :club:

I will stay on plan because I am getting frusterated with gaining and losing the same five pounds. It's frusterating because I have been pretty consistent with the losses since I started. Now this! Argggggh!

Because I'm tired of wearing the same 2 dressy shirts I have when I have a whole closet full of beautiful clothes that I cannot fit into.

I will stay on my plan today because extra food won't change the fact that DH was part of a big lay off at his company. Food also does not make stress or pain go away.

I second what Beverlyjoy said! I managed to put on 6lbs over the course of three days due to stress and grief eating. No more! Hunger is not my problem, so food is not the solution!

I will stay on plan today because I need to lose 2 pounds this week to meet my monthly goal. I set a modest goal of losing 5 pounds a month. I have exceeded that goal every month except Dec. Even with all the holiday eating, I still lost the 5 pounds that month. Now in Feb. my weight loss slowed down for some reason. I have only lost 3 pounds so far; so to meet my Feb. goal, I need to lose 2 pounds this week!

Long answer but I need it. Does anyone read the entries in this thread?

time2lose: of course we read them! Congratulations on your progress, I bet you feel great!

I will stay on goal today because I set a goal for myself that leaves me no room for failure. I entered into a friendly 10% by Memorial Day challenge with my mother, sister, and workout buddy, without consideration for the fact that 10% for me is a larger amount of fat-loss than it is for the other three women involved, significantly larger. I WILL STAY ON GOAL TODAY. I STAYED YESTERDAY, I WILL STAY TOMORROW.

It is great to hear that other people read this thread. I usually read a few of the entries above mine and get inspiration. But... I mainly post here to remind myself of why today is important, that every day is important and I can do this one day at a time!

This thread is great!

time2lose - I definitely read the entries on this thread! Probably more often than I actually post on it, even! Haha. Often, someone else's reason will be one of mine, too--or even something that I didn't realize was one of mine. :)

I stayed on plan today and will continue to stay on plan tomorrow because I am GOING to bust through this plateau--no matter HOW long it takes!! :club:

I will stay on-plan today because I might - just MIGHT - have finally gotten past my plateau. I'm kind of in shock, but I guess whatever I've been doing this week seems to be working. Let's hope today's weigh-in wasn't just a fluke. :crossed:

Because it occured to me that my jeans were really loose yesterday, which I attributed to having worn them two days in a row (you know how they're tighter fresh out of the dryer), but then I remembered that I had grabbed them off a hanger when I put them on... Dare I suggest I might be getting close to dropping a clothing size?

I'm thinking that's a great reason to stay O/P.

TJFitnessDiva
02-26-2009, 09:09 AM
lol because my shorts fell to my knees yesterday....good thing I only wore them around the house ;)

Plus I really love how I'm feeling since I started. I can now run around the yard with my boys and not feel like I'm about to die!

I stayed on-plan today and will continue to do so tomorrow because my a cappella group's quarterly concert is this Saturday, and I want to look HOT while I'm performing! I always think I sound good, but just for once I want to be the girl who really catches the audience's eye... ;)

I will stay on plan today because I need to lose 2 pounds this week to meet my monthly goal. Looks like I will make it! My ritual requires that I have the same weight 3 days before I can count it. This morning the scales showed the needed 339 and I am going to make allowances for the end of the month. If my scale shows 339 tomorrow morning, I am going to count it!

I will stay on plan today because I have so much to GAIN by losing! I also like the way I feel when I stay on plan, like I have control over this monster and that I don't have to be fat and selfconscience forever if I chose NOT to.

Another reason why I'll stay on-plan today is because I had a GREAT weigh-in today, and I don't want to do anything to mess up all the progress I've made this week! Woohoo! :yay:

WTG planning again, JennyW! Good thinking. :D

I will stay on plan today because my concert is TONIGHT, and I'm wearing a dress that is somewhat formfitting (shows off my curves pretty well, if I do say so myself ;)), and there's a teeny tiny infinitesimal chance that this guy I really like might be coming... So just for today... "Healthy" reasons for losing weight be d*mned!! It's all about the vanity tonight!! :lol:

I will stay on plan today, because I am STUCK and do not want to sabotage my efforts by going off plan.

I realized that I have been at this weight for two weeks now (my stats are incorrect...I have not changed them...I am back up to 300 lbs without understanding why). It is really frustrating and sometimes I feel like crying. I want to get out of the 300s and stay out. Thus, sticking to my plan.

Normally, I would just say, "Well, I am not losing anyway, so why not just indulge." But I am committed in a way I have never been before.

Anyway, this is a great thread and it helps to have someplace to go to make a daily commitment.

One day at a time...

Great job! It's really hard to stay motivated, especially when you're doing everything right, but your body isn't cooperating. Stick with it and you'll break this plateau before you know it!!!!

I will stay on plan today because I am an intelligent woman who manages over 40 people at work, so it is ridiculous that I cannot seem to manage the eating habits of one person...and I need to take control over this whole eating situation, not let it control me!!
