:) I'm going to see an ex when I'm in CA on Halloween weekend. I want to be 266 or less so that I've lost 30 lbs since the last time I saw him. I was at 273 this morning. If my body will cooperate, I should be there.

10-07-2010, 09:14 AM
I really really really want to do this, and the only way to do this is to stay on plan - I can make it through another day to the point it becomes second nature!!

10-07-2010, 06:13 PM
Because this is day 4 of my weight loss journey and I stepped on the scale for the first time in years--it read EVEN MORE than I was anticipating. I feel like quitting since I'm 115 lbs from my goal and that seems like SO MUCH. I have to tell myself that the time will pass anyway--whether I'm gaining weight, staying fat, or losing it. And I'd rather have time pass and be losing.

10-07-2010, 08:51 PM
Because I want to be able to go to my closet and know that whatever I pick out will fit and look good.

Because after watching a Dr. Oz special on Discovery Health this weekend it scared the crap out of me to do what I need to do for myself and my family's health.

10-11-2010, 10:51 AM
because this is something I owe to myself and no one else, even though every one else will benefit. It's a win-win!

Because I'm terrified that I'll derail as I try to come back from medical issues.

10-11-2010, 05:17 PM

Why.... because this is for me. Not anyone else. I don't care if anyone is proud of me, I don't care if I impress someone... etc. I want to be proud of ME, I want to feel good about ME again.
