11-02-2009, 10:18 AM

Because it's one day at a time and today will be the day that I get restarted again.

11-02-2009, 01:57 PM
Because I'm finally back in the 220s. I maintained at this weight from 2000-2003...it's a comfortable weight for me. Of course, I can't WAIT to get out of the 220s...but right now, life is good. :)

11-02-2009, 02:14 PM
because I managed to squash a plateau that was trying to happen and it feels good!

Because I only need 2lbs to get out of the 220's!

11-02-2009, 02:51 PM
Because I need to lose only one more pound to get my ticker moving again -- and that's loooonnnnnnggggg overdue!!!!!

I don't want diabetes!

11-03-2009, 02:40 PM
Because I feel so much better when I'm OP.

11-03-2009, 02:52 PM
Because I've been off plan for too long and clearly it's not doing me any good.

11-03-2009, 03:23 PM
Because I have a cordoroy skirt and tights in my very near future, and that scares me.

11-03-2009, 03:28 PM
Because I Love the thrill when my Wii Fit (Or the scale) tells me I lost weight, I just need to get out of the Obese catigory.

And because 43 days from now I'll be going to hawaii and want to make every effort I can to look my best by then.

11-03-2009, 04:27 PM
because I'm so sick of re-gaining and re-losing the same few pounds, I just want to see the 240s in the next 2 weeks!

11-03-2009, 04:39 PM
Because I have my period and if I stick with my eating, I'll see a nice loss at the end of this week!

11-03-2009, 05:34 PM
Because I can't WAIT to experience what it's like to be a normal weight! I don't want to delay it any longer!

11-03-2009, 05:43 PM
Because I'll see my mom in three weeks for Thanksgiving and if anyone will notice I've lost weight, it'll be my mom!

11-03-2009, 06:02 PM
because I have a kitchen stock full of healthy foods and have no reason not to stay on plan today.

11-03-2009, 06:35 PM
Because I want to stick it to my jerk ex who always said I could never be skinny. :devil:

11-03-2009, 06:56 PM
Because I didn't lose anything last week and I don't like that feeling. I want to see numbers going down.

11-04-2009, 09:47 AM
Because after poor choices sent me back up to 285.4, this morning I am back down to 283.8!

11-04-2009, 06:17 PM
Because I'm tired of putting jeans out out of the dryer, and have to get them "worn in" again, so I can breathe in them.

11-04-2009, 06:32 PM
because my weigh in day is tomorrow and I already know that the 7 lbs I lost last week when sick are all back and I would like to at least MAINTAIN my loss from 2 weeks ago. I hate that I will have to move my ticker back up tomorrow :(

11-04-2009, 07:00 PM
Because I'm off to a great start over the past 3 weeks, and I really want to go the distance this time!!

11-05-2009, 11:47 AM
Because my daughters party is this Sunday and I am determined not to see the scale go back up again!

11-05-2009, 11:54 AM
I want to see a loss on Sunday.

11-05-2009, 11:55 AM
I will stay on plan today because I am committed to a healthy lifestyle.

11-05-2009, 12:13 PM
Because I am so tired of seeing 232, 233, 232, 233, 232....

11-06-2009, 09:46 AM
I will stay on plan today because I'm shooting for a mini goal of 277. I can do this I can do this I can do this.

11-06-2009, 12:02 PM
I am staying on plan today because I now weigh 281.6!! I know I still weigh a lot but it was a 2lb whoosh that I was not expecting! :woohoo:

11-07-2009, 08:20 AM
I hope to make 100 lb weight loss by Christmas!!!

11-07-2009, 09:40 AM
Because I had a goal for Christmas and have not lost for some 8 weeks now.

11-07-2009, 09:57 AM
Because I've done amazingly well this past week and want to keep doing amazingly well!

11-07-2009, 10:08 AM
Because I'm taking a scale break, and that is NOT an excuse to eat whatever I want and make myself feel lousy.

11-07-2009, 11:54 AM
Because now I am seeing 232, 232, almost 231, 232 and I am 100% on plan so I KNOW if I stick with it I am due for a drop soon. I want to move my ticker!!

11-08-2009, 12:08 PM
Because I finally saw the scale move this morning and it feels GREAT! The 220's are right there for the taking :)

11-08-2009, 12:22 PM
Because I didn't just go running and nearly kill myself on roller blades to ruin it all with bad food choices.

11-08-2009, 04:28 PM
because im feeling so much more energized

11-08-2009, 04:31 PM
Because I had a really great breakfast, snack, and lunch...no need to ruin it ..I only have 1 snack and dinner to go!

11-08-2009, 11:21 PM
because I'm loving fitting into some of my clothes again, instead of just the shorts that I wore all summer.... and i'd love them to fit even better.

11-09-2009, 11:12 AM
Because I did amazing this weekend despite all the junk we had laying around for dds party yesterday and lost weight!! I'm so close to the 270s!!!!!!

11-09-2009, 12:03 PM
I am staying on plan today because I am determined to lose some weight before the year is up.

11-09-2009, 12:16 PM
Because this weekend I climbed a mountain (albeit not a huge one or anything) and I made it to the top. I can't wait to do it again after I've lost another 20 pounds and see how much easier it is then.

11-09-2009, 01:56 PM
Because I love the way I am eating now.

11-09-2009, 08:09 PM
Because I read my Goal post in the Goal forum from October of 2007 and it made me REALLY want to get back to goal!

11-09-2009, 08:44 PM
Because it took me 3 1/2 years to get back in this mindset and I refuse to give it up again!

(and because I lost 8.6#s last week and want to do it again!)

11-09-2009, 08:48 PM
because i hate this plateau!

11-10-2009, 11:40 AM
Because I am focused, and I do not want to lose that focus. It just takes too much effort to get it back.

11-10-2009, 12:09 PM
because I've been just shy of those 240s for weeks now. It's time to get there

11-10-2009, 12:22 PM
I have to...I slipped a little yesterday...

11-10-2009, 12:51 PM
Because this is one thing I *can* control.

11-10-2009, 04:31 PM
I will stay on plan today because it helps control my stress level.

11-10-2009, 04:41 PM
I *have* to stay on point for the rest of the day! That small slice of chocolate birthday cake I had was deliciously dangerous... I can not afford to waste calories on cake! I want to be in a new decade next weigh in!

11-10-2009, 07:26 PM
Because I want to hit my first 10 pounds lost this week. Or come very close to it.

11-10-2009, 08:15 PM
Because I really really want to be able to run 10+ miles again. Heck, I'd be happy with 3 or 4!

11-11-2009, 02:55 PM
Because it is not just about the pounds.

11-11-2009, 03:15 PM
Because I want to see some definitive results when I do my monthly measuring in three days.

11-11-2009, 03:25 PM
Because I am looking forward to the comments I will get at the work Christmas party if I can wear the dress I plan to!!

11-11-2009, 03:38 PM
because I really want to reach my 20% loss goal-- just three pounds to go!

11-11-2009, 04:54 PM
Because I am so close to the 220's I can taste it (hmmmm, possibly a bad choice of word). It's so important that I concentrate on breaking this barrier because I haven't been into the 220's in years. It's like breaking a logjam for me.

11-11-2009, 05:37 PM
because I didnt stay on plan yesterday by any means and I can feel my motivation slipping. I need a good day to remind me that I can do this....

11-12-2009, 07:48 AM
Because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty and power of their dreams.

11-12-2009, 08:30 AM
I will stay on plan today because when I stepped on the scale this morning I saw 149.2!!! I haven't seen 140 anything since June or July. Calorie Counting IS working. lol OH-and upping my workouts from say, 30 min 2 or 3 times a week, to 45-60 min, 5 or 6 days a week...duh!? 130 here I come....

11-12-2009, 08:56 AM
I don't feel like lifting my stomach to get into those nooks and crannies while I shower.

11-12-2009, 09:30 AM
I will stay on plan today because I'm worth it, I really want to lose weight, but I'm not trying hard enough. So today I will make it the first day in a long time that I really am on program!

This is a good thread, it's almost blogging.

11-12-2009, 10:03 AM
Because I reached a new decade this morning and literally jumped for joy when I saw the scale read 279 this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11-12-2009, 08:47 PM
Because....I am going to onederland for my birthday in July

11-12-2009, 09:45 PM
LOL, DasBeat, good one!! :D

... because there is no way that scale is ever going to move down below 240 if I don't keep doing what I'm doing.

11-16-2009, 10:27 AM
I will stay on plan today because I really want to get to 199. During the holidays I am going to hold on to this thought. Getting to onederland is much more important to me than eating sweets and starches! Onederland is going to be my present to myself!

11-16-2009, 10:34 AM
Because I have finally made it into the 210's and I can finally see reaching under 200. And I am willing to put in the work.

11-16-2009, 10:56 AM
Because in less than two months I'm going to India for a month... the land of the tiny people! And I REALLY don't want to be the huge ginormous fat American chick any more than I have to be. *sigh*

11-16-2009, 10:56 AM
Because I reached a new decade and I will NOT let myself go back up! And because I am just 9lbs away from reaching a new decade!

11-16-2009, 10:58 AM
Oh and did I mention I'm meeting my online best friend of 4 years and "special someone" for the past year and a half finally? And that he STILL weighs 40lbs less than me??

Granted, when we became friends it was 130 (he put on a few haha)... but still!! ugh!

11-16-2009, 01:34 PM
Because I am in the worst possible mood today (hormones) yet it is not nearly as terrible as the worst possible mood ON JUNK.

11-16-2009, 03:41 PM
because making good decisions leading up to Thanksgiving will make it easier to make good decisions ON Thanksgiving!

Arctic Mama
11-16-2009, 04:19 PM
I'm going to stay on plan today, because there is no compelling reason NOT to! I am happier and healthier when I do, and darnit, I want to ring in the new year at 199!

11-16-2009, 07:12 PM
Because I'm tired of my male roommate saying, "You're heavier than I am." :mad:

11-17-2009, 01:30 PM
Ugh, Skyra, your roommate needs to grow up and worry about himself, not the people around him. :(

Today I am staying OP because I want to be proud of myself.

11-17-2009, 01:31 PM
Because I am feeling kinda down today and getting off plan will only make me feel worse.

11-17-2009, 01:37 PM
Overeating today, would only make my day that much worse.

11-17-2009, 01:56 PM
Because I am tired of carrying around an extra 200 lbs. Time to let it go.

11-17-2009, 06:10 PM
Because I have been hovering at 230/231 for about ten days now, even with being completely on plan, and I really, really want to get into the 220's. Finally. Please.

11-17-2009, 08:20 PM
Because getting to the 240s was such a struggle. I will not be returning to 250 and above

11-18-2009, 12:39 PM
Because I feel fantastic today and I know tomorrow I will feel even better if I stay on plan! AF is ending so I'm going to work my butt off (literally haha) to see a nice drop in the scale next week!

11-18-2009, 01:22 PM
Because this is just what I do now.

11-19-2009, 12:54 PM
because I let lack of sleep be my get out of gym free card yesterday, but I'm well rested today, no excuses!

11-20-2009, 11:45 AM
Because it felt SO GOOD to move my ticker down today! I haven't been 229 since April!

11-20-2009, 11:48 AM
Because I would like to see my ticker weight again, and then say goodbye to the 150s forever.

11-20-2009, 12:27 PM
Because I am 3lbs away from losing "50lbs" and I refuse to let anything else be more important.

11-20-2009, 02:01 PM
Mine is simple: Because I want to.

11-20-2009, 03:13 PM
Because I am so close to getting to onederland!!!

11-20-2009, 05:43 PM
Because I have been OP all day and I only need to get through ONE more meal & snack today. Then I'm good for the day!

11-20-2009, 05:50 PM
I will stay on plan (for the rest of) today because I want to hit 100 pounds lost before Christmas.

Arctic Mama
11-20-2009, 07:43 PM
Because I have to get below 200 to have another baby and I am itching to start TTC by the New Year. I can totally make it, I just have to be disciplined to stick to my plan like glue rather than contentedly sitting at a slower rate of loss.

I WILL do it!

11-21-2009, 11:40 AM
Arctic Mama~ awww, what a great reason to stay on plan! I wish you all the best with TTC :)

The reason I am staying on plan today is that it feels so good to look in the mirror and see someone I respect.

11-22-2009, 08:47 AM
Because it's about time. I've been destructive to myself for long enough.

11-22-2009, 11:04 AM
Because the numbers are going down again, and I need to keep it that way.

11-22-2009, 11:50 AM
Because I went off plan the past 2 days and I hate the way that makes me feel!

11-22-2009, 12:09 PM
Because I am now only two pounds away from my first mini-goal. Chug, chug, chug!

11-22-2009, 09:27 PM
Because yesterday was my 9th anni with DH and we went out and he would not stop gushing over how beautiful I looked. And because I weighed in at 276.2 this am! ANNNNNNNNNNND because I officially fit into a stretchy size 20! Heres to fitting into a non-stretchy size 20 soon!!!!!!!!!!!

11-22-2009, 09:57 PM
Because I want a better future.

11-23-2009, 10:31 AM
I will stay on plan today because I want to get to onederland.

11-23-2009, 10:51 AM
Because I really, really, really, really want to see the 240's!


11-23-2009, 10:56 AM
Because I am finally starting to really "get" how to do this without totally exhausting myself. Because I finally feel like I CAN do this, and so I WILL do it.

11-23-2009, 11:10 AM
Because I'm going home early December and would love to be lighter! (it's vain I know)

11-23-2009, 11:13 AM
Because my health and happiness matter.

11-23-2009, 01:49 PM
Because I am soooo close to losing 100 pounds. I'm at 38% body weight lost so far and losing 100 pounds will put me at 41%. If I stick with it I will be there before long.

11-23-2009, 06:54 PM
because this is that dangerous time of year; I've got to bring my A game!

11-24-2009, 07:45 AM
Because as of this morning I am officially back in the 'overweight' category of my BMI again, and I fully intend to stay there this time.

salsa chip
11-24-2009, 08:04 AM
Because as of this morning I am officially back in the 'overweight' category of my BMI again, and I fully intend to stay there this time.

Yeahhh go you!

11-24-2009, 10:41 PM
Because I've done so well so far, why ruin it now?

11-25-2009, 11:05 AM
Because I just weighed myself at 248 on my home scale (= 246.2 on ww scale) and I don't want to throw that away!

11-25-2009, 11:22 AM
Because I just looked at a picture of myself on facebook from 1995 and I'm OBVIOUSLY SKINNIER NOW!

11-25-2009, 12:02 PM
Because I feel good!


11-25-2009, 12:35 PM
Because I started the P90X fitness program this week and I am not putting myself through these intense workouts just to eat back my calorie deficit. (I haven't been this sore from a workout in AGES!)

11-29-2009, 10:55 AM
Because TOM started last night, and if I stick with my program I will hopefully see a decent loss when it's over.

11-29-2009, 03:04 PM
because reality is I am the only one that can make this change happen, I don't want to let myself down again.

11-29-2009, 06:03 PM
Because I really want to congratulate myself for losing the first 20 pounds, and I am getting closer.

11-30-2009, 01:45 PM
Because I deserve to give myself my own best effort.

11-30-2009, 01:49 PM
I will stay on plan today because I have regained 16lbs since the end of June and it has to stop.

11-30-2009, 01:51 PM
I will stay on my plan today because I just must do this - just get through today with food sanity.

11-30-2009, 03:36 PM
Just for today. I can do it. I need 2 do it. I want 2 feel better.

11-30-2009, 03:43 PM
Because today is the FIRST day of my weight loss journey :)

11-30-2009, 03:48 PM
Because Thanksgiving (and the 3 days after) sooo didn't go as planned. Now I'm back home and ready to get back to weight loss!

12-01-2009, 08:15 AM
Because blue jeans that are too small are painful!!!!!!!!!

12-01-2009, 09:13 AM
Because I am tired of letting myself down.
