I was looking around for this thread and found that it was closed due to 500+ posts, so here's the new one!

I am going to stay on plan because Easter just passed which means it's all that much closer to Summer! (bikini's, and shorts, and skirts, oh my!)

I'm going to stay on plan because I want my son to have a healthy relationship with food and never be "The Fat Kid". I owe it to him and myself to never live like that again.

I am going to stay on plan for 2 reasons:
1. Because I stayed on plan this weekend and was 1.5 pounds UP this morning. I am not going to give in to the disappointment.
2. I cleaned out my closet this weekend and I don't want to put any of those "too big" clothes back in there.

I am going to stay on plan today because it makes waking up and getting up in the morning so much better when I don't feel sluggish and icky. Instead I'm motivated to keep this going, because I look better, and I feel better, and people notice that! Plus, my life is so much more boring when I'm not working out. Going to the gym and classes, etc. gives me a whole new activity where otherwise I'd be sitting around at home on the computer or watching TV. That's awesome!

Viatre

Because I have lost 8 pounds already, but I know I have a lot more to lose before I will be happy with the way I look and feel.

Because I'm 2.5 weeks and 4.5 lbs away from my goal deadline.

Because I haven't been doing well the last few days and I need to prove to myself that THIS TIME I'm not stopping, I'm not stalling, I'm just moving forward until I reach my goal. And then I'm staying there.

Because my health matters more than my easter candy.

I've been having a bad week, so I needed more than the one reason!

TODAY I'm going to stay on plan because I have 2 days until weigh day and I didn't lose anything last week. (Which I'm okay with since it was vacation and my hubby and I 20th wedding anniversary and we celebrated a little.) So this week it was back to the grind stone and I'm working for at least 2!!!

Short-term - I'm going to stay on plan because my office is going to an expo in Las Vegas in mid-May and I really really really want to lose 10 lbs by then

Long-term - I'm going to stay on plan because I've wasted too many years being overweight, avoiding the camera, jealous of my rail-thin sisters, and unhealthy. I look at the "Goal Pictures" threads and see how little time it took others to take 45 lbs off. I can do it too!

I am going to be on plan today because I refuse to become any more of a yo-yo dieter than I've already been.

I am going to be on plan today because I now have half a closet full of pants that are too tight to comfortably fit me. I paid good money for those skinny-arse designer jeans and they're supposed to sit on my bottom! ;)

I will stay on plan because I planned it before hand. Did that make sense?

I knew today would be a ravenous hunger day due to TOM so I overstocked my lunch bag with extra veggies and good-for-me foods. As I type I'm filling that hunger with healthy nutrients vs. junk. Live and learn right? :)

I'm going to have to change this a little by saying... I am going to get back on plan, and then stay on plan. Over the past month and a half I have tried to heal a broken heart by going back to my old ways, by letting food be my comfort. :( Now, almost 10 pounds up I don't feel good, or look good. And of course, eating has done nothing to ease the heartache. SOOO... I am going to stay on plan because I know when I do, I feel better, I look better, I act better, I am able to deal with things in my life, and it really leads to just being a better me.

I'm going to stay on plan because it is one of the most awful feelings to lose 55 lbs, and then gain it all back the next year. I'm tired of starting over. I NEED to stay on plan because I'm not sure I have the will to keep starting over and swearing I'll do better next time. Once you fail so many times, it gets hard to believe you can do it. :(
