Because I start back at spin class tonight (I've had bronchitis and haven't been able to breathe for the last 2 weks) and I would really like to be down a pound or two in the morning!

05-02-2011, 02:17 PM
because my husband deserves a beautiful wife!

Because I am worth it!

05-04-2011, 11:20 AM
Wow a tri, good for you!!

I will stay on plan today because I really want to see that goal weight on the scale in the next month or so!

05-04-2011, 11:23 AM
Because my health is important to me. We are TTC starting in August/September, so I want to be as healthy as I can be.

Because I really dont want to be fat again....I worked hard to lose the weight and I will have to remain on plan to keep it off.....

05-05-2011, 09:40 AM
Because I am tired of being ashamed.

05-05-2011, 11:22 AM
Because the first triathlon is the day after tomorrow.

05-05-2011, 11:37 AM
Slim CB said it so well, Because I really dont want to be fat again....I worked hard to lose the weight and I will have to remain on plan to keep it off....

I really have two options here..... Stay on plan in order to lose weight or even maintain or be off plan and gain weight. Going to the vending machine would be choosing to gain weight.

05-05-2011, 11:39 AM
Because life holds things that want to experience, and can't (or can't comfortably) yet!

05-05-2011, 02:20 PM

05-09-2011, 01:43 PM
Because I have been given glimpses of the type of life I want and being overweight is hampering that.

05-09-2011, 03:32 PM
Because I'm ready to get into Onederland and an overweight BMI.

05-09-2011, 03:59 PM
Because I'm finally 3 lbs within my first mini-goal...that I set 8 months ago and I refuse to go back the other way...also, a wise maintainer once told me: it's hard being fat and unhealthy, it's also hard to get in shape and be healthy, so pick your "hard". I've totally picked mine.

05-10-2011, 10:13 AM
Because if I continue to gain weight, I will soon be morbidly obese again.

05-10-2011, 11:16 AM
Because going off plan clearly doesn't work.

05-10-2011, 11:18 AM
because in the end, sheer determination will win out!

05-10-2011, 11:23 AM
Because I saw a picture of myself in my prom photos five years ago, and I want to be an older version of that beautiful person I saw.

05-11-2011, 11:33 AM
Because I am tired that people will or are judging me by my weight.

05-11-2011, 11:52 AM
Because I love being slimmer.

05-11-2011, 12:29 PM

05-11-2011, 01:16 PM
Because I don't want to worry that I'm too fat to do fun things like ride a horse.

05-11-2011, 06:30 PM

I will stay on plan today because no one else can do it for me. I am responsible for myself, and going off plan will not create a new, healthier, thinner me!

05-17-2011, 12:53 PM
because I want to get back below 200 pounds.

05-17-2011, 01:53 PM

05-23-2011, 08:57 AM
I will stay on plan in spite of the fact that I've been looking at the same number again for four days. I'm going to remember that it's not realistic to drop nine or ten pounds in two weeks, that most of that was water weight, and that if I stick with my plan, I'll lose a pound a week, or two if I'm lucky.

Enduring Infinity
05-24-2011, 08:21 AM
I will stay on plan today because seeing a .4lb increase thanks to sore muscles and the related water retention reminded me exactly how much I hate seeing gains on the scale!

05-24-2011, 10:26 AM
I will stay on plan today because I don't want to be morbidly obese again. It is a choice. I have to choose between that honey bun in the vending machine and being morbidly obese again.

05-24-2011, 10:33 AM
I will stay on plan today because I'm just 0.5lbs away from losing 75lbs total.

This last 25lbs has taken longer than the first two, but its been worth it.
