One reason I will stay on plan today is because it's finally 2010 - and one step closer to moving to the US in August.

I'm going to stay on plan today because I only have 55 lbs left to lose which sounds pidily compared to 135 lbs to lose! So since I'm over half way there, why not keep going?

Because I've already started off the year right with a 5K run this morning, during which I set my own personal best time to date. This year I plan to prove to myself just how strong I am, and that starts with staying OP.

Ookpik
01-06-2010, 01:02 AM
Because I quit my job after 8.5 years and have to provide my own clothes...no more uniform for me (unless I get in the RCMP someday). I am going back to school to get my degree, and I don't want an increase in size, because then I'd have to buy more clothes and money's going to be tight! I threw out or gave away all the big clothes I had before I lost weight so I wouldn't have any "fat clothes" to go back to.

Beverlyjoy
01-06-2010, 07:27 AM

thistoo
01-07-2010, 09:56 AM
Because I overslept this morning, so I didn't have time for my usual 40 min. of cardio. Instead I did 30-Day Shred (level 2 -- I like the plank twists), since it's only 20 minutes. I haven't done it for a couple months, and I used to DREAD it because it was so hard. This morning it was -- dare I say it -- easy.

So I haven't lost any weight in nearly three months, but I've certainly improved my fitness a great deal.

Aclai4067
01-07-2010, 12:35 PM

Because last night was not great (life-wise, not diet-wise) and this morning I am going to have to deal with the stress of getting my car unstuck from the hill where I abandoned it in the snow. I can't control the weather or the damage my car suffered when it got hit last night, but I can control how I react to the stress. In the long run eating right will help me deal a lot more successfully than eating sugar and carbs.

Forgotten Quill
01-08-2010, 02:45 PM
...because I care too much not to stay on plan. It's simple. It's not complicated, but it's about as honest as I can be right now. I care about how I look about my health...but really about how I look.

I already know for a fact that losing weight is not going to help my Crohn's Disease, so I'm focusing on how I look, how my clothes fit and my endurance. I really need to get my endurance up...

soulnik
01-08-2010, 03:52 PM
I am going to stay on plan today because I have my first weigh-in on Monday and I NEED to see a loss so I'll be inspired to keep this up. I KNOW I CAN DO THIS! I just need to remember it works.

Because, even though it wasn't my weigh-in day, I weighed myself today and I'm down 1.5 lbs (AND it's a TOM week AND I didn't work out this week) so I'm psyched! I want to stay on track and GET OUT of the 300's by my birthday in February.

Because if I could host a party last night and STILL managed to stay on track, I can get through an average Sunday without going off program.

@Aclai4067 (Ashley) - Thanks! I don't know if I can afford them all but I figure the money I'm saving on eating out for every meal should be spent on trips for weight loss rewards!

Because my back hurts and I want to go back to my fitness bootcamp class but I'm afraid it will make my back worse. I think I need to get a few pounds off, relieve the pressure of all this extra weight on my back before I can step up my work out to such an intense level.
