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

I will stay on plan because that is what i need to do to succeed. It is the only way this weight will come off of me.

I will stay on plan because the only reason I go off plan is emotional. I don't want to eat when I'm not hungry, I don't want to eat just because food is there! I want to control what I eat and be comfortable with that.

I will stay on plan today because I dragged my butt to the gym even though I hadn't planned on it! (Plans got changed, meaning I had the opportunity to go to the gym, so I went!)

I didn't do all that work just to stray off plan!

I'm staying on plan because, slowly but surely, it's WORKING! Also I walked in a 5K for women with much more serious health issues than fat to contend with and in respect for their struggles, I won't waste the good healthy body God gave me on bad food and laziness.

I will stay on-plan today because I can't believe I went to my favorite restaurant (or at least one of my favorites) last night and actually left without ordering a delicious vegan dessert! Where did all of this willpower come from? I am NOT going to give into the food just because my scale has been all over the place this past week... I'm standing strong. ;)

I will stay on-plan today because I got a very nice compliment from a friend yesterday. :) It's kinda funny, because I only just met him this year, when I was around 70-80 lbs down, so he never even saw me anywhere near my highest weight... But he actually noticed that I'd lost ~20 lbs since we met! How cool is that? It kind of makes me giggle that he has no idea how far I've really come--and it's a rush to know that even more people I meet in the future won't know, either! :sssh:

Because my legs aren't swollen, and that makes me feel much much MUCH smaller, healthier and happier than I did last week!

I'm even thinking about going back to Lane Bryant to buy that pair of olive-green capri-length cargo pants I was looking at sadly last week...thinking I'd never be able to wear anything like that because of my swollen, disgusting legs!!

THANK YOU LORD FOR THE TEXAS LOW-CARB ELIMINATION DIET!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stayed on plan today because I am absolutely LOVIN' dressing up this new body... I always loved clothes/fashion, but it simply amazes me how much more interest I've taken in finding things I really like, and actually putting a lot of thought into my outfits every day! I feel like I've become my own Barbie doll and I'm just like a little girl who wants to dress up her dolls in all the prettiest clothing... I just love, love, love it. :D

WhitePicketFences

I second that, MrsHomeStretch! I expect to officially weigh less than my husband in the next two weeks :)

My reasons are mostly scale reasons today ... I want to see the 170s! I want to be 178 -- 75 lbs down! -- by my birthday, the first weekend in June.

I stayed on-plan so far today and will continue to stay on-plan because I *know* that the small gain I saw today was not real... I *know* I didn't eat an excessive amount of calories or otherwise do anything that would cause me to gain... I *know* I have been doing everything right... So I am not - NOT - going to drown my disappointment in a binge! :club:

Plateaus stink. :(

I will stay on plan today because yesterday i ate about 500 more calories than planned. I need to stay on plan if i want to achieve my weight loss goals.

I will stay on plan because i can always choose at a later date when i am maintaining to have strawberry shortcake. that cake is going nowhere. for now i need to choose only healthy yummy foods that will help me move towards my goals. exta calories mean maintaining, not weight loss. i must remember that...

There are 5 more sitting in my refrigerator right now, and I have been feeling really strong urges to binge because I'm stressed out over a paper I have to right this weekend, but again--I DID NOT COME THIS FAR TO TAKE ORDERS FROM A COOKIE! :s: That is going to be my mantra until one by one, those cookies have sloooowly been savored and devoured over the next couple of weeks. I can do this! I am NOT going to binge just because of this stupid paper!

That is one reason for me to stay OP too!!! Another reason I will stay on plan is because Saturday is the day most people (including me) slack off!! So instead of slacking off, I will stay OP to prove that I can do it. I know I will feel better tomorrow too!!

I will stay on plan this weekend because this weight is keeping me from doing so many things that I want to do, such as moving, playing with my grandkids and living a long healthy life.

I will keep this in mind this weekend, while I have a houseful of my children and grandchildren. There is food in the house that would hurt my lifestyle changes if I let it, so I must remember that my long term goal is more important than momentary indulgence!

I stayed on-plan today because I completely refused to let myself get upset over the PMS gain I had today... Instead, I'm choosing to look forward to TOM coming up next week, because I generally have good losses during those weeks. ;) Hehe!

I will stay on-plan tomorrow because I'm going to be wearing a really cute dress that is waaaay shorter/shows off much more of my legs than any dress I *ever* would have been comfortable wearing in the past, and I know that staying OP is what enables me to wear stuff like this with at least a little bit of confidence! :D

I WILL stay on plan today because I accept the reality that eating obscene amounts of food is *NOT* going to help me write this paper that has been looming over my head... It's not going to help one bit, and in fact, it will probably just make me feel a zillion times worse. Hunger is not the problem here, therefore food is NOT the solution!! Gotta remember that.

I took one step towards staying in control today by throwing away some fudge another friend made while she was visiting. Even though it was "healthy" fudge I've now learned it's "trigger fudge" and I just can't have it. So, into the trash it went this morning! I feel 10 times better already!

I will stay on plan today because I am fighting the battle of the buldge and I have been defeated in the past because I was feeding the enemy.

Because today one of my best friends takes me clothes shopping for things to wear when I'm thinner!

^ Great quote! :D

I will stay on-plan today because, with a little luck, I'll be able to celebrate 110 lbs lost pretty darn soon! That's definitely something I don't want to delay! ;)

I will finish my day on plan because i have done great so far. When at the school fair i did not overeat despite lots of opportunity, i managed to get a run in and i am on track. no reason to ruin it.

I will stay on plan today because those chocolates in the bin are calling so loudly, and if I can resist them, I can resist everything!

I will stay on plan today because in one week we fly out west to visit relatives we haven't seen in a few years.

I will stay on plan because with so many social occasions lately i find myself maintaining instead of losing. I must stay on plan if i want to move forward and downward.
