Hope I'm not duplicating, but I can't find this thread and it's one that I use all the time.

So, one reason I'll stay on plan today: my first tri is only a few weeks away, and every ounce down is an asset.

How about you?

So that when my son asks me to play with him - I will actually feel like saying, "Yes! I'd love to play right now!" :carrot:

Because everything I do is the foundation for the lives of my girls. What they see me doing is what they will remember. Seeing me get healthier, and fitter, will hopefully foster good habits for them.

So true! Though I know my children love me unconditionally, I sometimes wonder what I must look like to them. I can't wait to feel more proud of the image that question conjures.

I agree completely, I know my girls love me as I am, but I want them to never grow up and be in the position I am in. I hope that watching my journey, and my work (we do talk about it), will help them keep in mind, through their lives, how bad eating decisions can impact their lives.

Because I don't want to see the scale go up again, like it did this morning (1.5 lbs). While I am sure it went up due to water weight, it's still a crummy feeling. That will keep me on plan for the day!

calluna
04-14-2011, 10:55 AM

Same here. My youngest son is about 2 1/2 and everday when I get home from work he says, "Mommy! You exercise today?" When I say Yes. He says, "Good job, Mommy! I so proud to you!" ...my lil' :angel:

Makes me want to work hard so he's "proud to me" every day!

Ohmydogs, what sort of pups do you have? I have two Great Pyrenees...

Calluna, I have a chihuahua cross (I know, you can laugh, she kind of belongs to my daughters) and a border collie/lab cross, and if it works out with this new dog, we'll have a Newfoundland. I had a Newfie but we lost her to bone cancer a couple of years ago, and it devastated me, as she and I were very bonded. I have finally decided I am ready for another one. I am hesitant to even mention her though because we did this all a few months ago, and the Newf we ended up with was NOT typical, she growled at the kids, attacked my cats, attacked my dogs, destroyed my house (literally chewed a hole in the door big enough for her to fit her 130lb body through) and busted 2 crates...totally not normal for the breed (she was NOT socialized properly). So I am very hesitant to say much about this girl until we've done a trial with her, and we know how it's going to work! But I am hoping!!

TWO Great Pyrenees?!?! Wow! That's a very large breed. I have a neighbor (tiny lil' thing) who has a white Great Pyrenees and a black Newfoundland. I always crack up when she comes walking by with them 'cause it looks like she's walking to ponies! They're very sweet and well behaved though...otherwise it would be a SERIOUS workout taking those two out for a stroll!

Beautiful dogs though...congrats!

Because I am less than 5lbs from my first mini-goal, which is 10% of my start weight....which means I am less than 5lbs from my first reward!!!

I am staying on plan today because I got the news from my nurse practitioner (like a family doctor) that the pneumonia I had in November, coupled with my pre-existing asthma, triggered seasonal allergies and now (worst of all) mild obstructive lung disease. Aside from taking the inhaled steroids, weight loss would greatly diminish its effect on me.

I'm also staying on plan because she's holding me accountable. I weighed myself in the office today and I see her in 1 month's time, at which point she says she wants to see that number on the scale go down and for me to set a goal of taking the dog out for a walk, rather than just playing in the back yard, every day for at least 20 minutes. I have to journal it and my eating pattern for her too.

So, now I'm behind held accountable to someone other than myself, and a medical professional no less.

I can't let her, or my doggie, down now lol

Well I will only be on plan for 2/3 of the day. My mother in law is flying in today, and taking us out for chinese food for supper. I have stayed on plan all week, and all last week so that I could enjoy tonight, guilt free. But I will be onplan for the rest of the day :)

Josie83

Because I know that no matter how good the food that my family is eating looks or smells, every pound closer I get to my goal weight is way more fulfilling! Also, even just losing the 11 lbs that I have, I'm already experiencing less ankle pain. :D
