Because what I want long-term is WAY more important than anything I can sabotage myself with

This IS going to be my year to finally get this weight off and get off this roller coaster!

I'm fed up, I'm getting old, it sickens me to look in the mirror, I'm fed up with pain issues, I'm fed up feeling uncomfortable, I'm just fed up!:bomb:


Bring it on. :club:

01-03-2011, 06:58 PM

Because in the midst of all my forward motion I got my period, and I'm retaining so much water weight (6 lbs currently) that if you stuck me on a big red truck you could hook me up to a hose and use me to put out fires (TMI?).

Yeah, so I'm not going to put on real weight in addition to that because I've worked TOO DAMN HARD. The end. :)

01-09-2011, 07:13 AM

AZ Sunrises
01-26-2011, 02:10 PM
I want to get back down to the weight I was before the holidays. I was so stoked to get into 20s comfortably. Now they're too tight. :) They'll fit again soon, but the closer I follow the plan, the more quickly it'll happen.

01-26-2011, 02:29 PM
because the 2teens are calling my NAME LOUD and clear!

01-26-2011, 02:47 PM
because I have a 13 year old daughter that does everything that mommy does...
and that's not necessarily a good thing unless I can get my act together!

01-26-2011, 02:50 PM
The weight is coming off.. The number on the scale goes down everyday and I am finally realizing that I can do this.

01-26-2011, 02:57 PM

01-27-2011, 05:50 PM
I will stay on plan today because my weight has not changed much over the last week or so and I really would like to see the scale move again - downwards please! ;)

01-27-2011, 06:08 PM
:D I will stay on my plan today too because it will be a success & a small goal will be met. And I have to have small goals to keep successful. Yesterday was another story :woops:- not good - but that was yesterday & can't change that. Keep on moving on down everyone! :D

01-27-2011, 06:14 PM
Because I'm as sick as a dog and don't want to deal with the additional upset of the scale moving in the wrong direction :barf:

01-28-2011, 09:22 AM
Because I'll cry if the scale doesn't drop soon.

01-28-2011, 03:07 PM
Because I pushed myself so hard at the gym this morning and to just throw that effort away would be stupid

01-28-2011, 03:49 PM
Because it felt so damn good this morning to see a change on the scale.

01-28-2011, 05:25 PM
I am 66 years of age

My cardiologist said:

"Look around, you won't see any old fat men"

I looked around, He was right!!

The biggest problem we have is ourselves

01-29-2011, 07:01 AM
Because I felt so bad for that pizza last night but I still lost. I don't want to tempt fate so today is going to be clean so the scale can continue to go down.

01-29-2011, 10:26 AM
Because as of this morning, I weigh less than I have in more than 15 years!

01-29-2011, 12:49 PM

01-30-2011, 05:22 AM
I will stay on plan today because my trip abroad was so much better than it would have been 80lbs ago, and I want next year's trip to be at least 25lbs better still!

01-30-2011, 06:07 AM
Because I can. It's in my control now. Food is not the enemy anymore :cb:

01-30-2011, 09:46 AM
Because I feel really good! :)

01-30-2011, 11:30 AM
Because for 4 days now I have actually tracked what I've eaten...and it works! I've stayed under 1400 calories!

AND because I'm planning out what I'm eating so that there are no "surprise" visits to the kitchen!


01-30-2011, 01:26 PM
I don't want to fall in the same unhealthy patterns of my family and I hope I can motivate them to change their diets and exercise more too so I won't lose anyone close to me much sooner than God planned

01-30-2011, 02:45 PM
Because tracking works, and I feel good!

01-30-2011, 03:45 PM
Because I already splurged this weekend, and now it's time to get back on plan so that splurge doesn't turn into a GAIN!

01-30-2011, 05:56 PM
Because while I've made my splurges this past week fit into my allotted calories, I don't feel as good as I usually do and staying on plan will make me feel better

01-30-2011, 06:08 PM
Because I can't work out til I get over this flu, so I'm going to watch my calories like a hawk and NOT fall off the wagon.

*waves a quick Hi to morphomel* Hi fellow LV buddy! :D

01-31-2011, 08:20 AM
Because I havent had those funny feeling heart palpitations in a month, and I like that!

01-31-2011, 09:39 AM
I am not ready to settle for my current weight.

01-31-2011, 12:10 PM
Just because.

01-31-2011, 12:27 PM
Because while I've made my splurges this past week fit into my allotted calories, I don't feel as good as I usually do and staying on plan will make me feel better


01-31-2011, 12:40 PM
Because I've made smart and informed choices for a week now, and seeing the scale move - in the right direction!- in spite of a little treat here and there feels GREAT.
