One reason I'll stay on plan today is so I can get in a good workout! I feel grody if I try to exercise after eating too much or not-so-great foods.

because I must get this weight off... as it will help my lab numbers be better.

09-11-2011, 10:20 AM
I'm looking at all the reasons posted here and realize I don't have to post one because everyone has given all the real reasons I am doing this. Thanks for the reminders.

I am staying on plan today because I committed to myself that this is how I eat - FOREVER. And I'm worth the commitment. And besides, it's 6 days until my HS class's 60th birthday party. I don't live in the town where I grew up, so I don't see many of these people very often and hardly anyone there will remember that I was over 250 pounds at our 35 year reunion in 2004. But it will be so cool to not be the fat one at the party!


April Snow
09-11-2011, 10:51 AM
because I had a really good week this past week, and I want another one!

09-11-2011, 12:17 PM

Because I wasn't on plan yesterday. Getting back up over and over after every fall is what has gotten me this far. I must never stop trying.

09-14-2011, 01:43 PM
April Snow thanks for the kudos.

Everyone thanks for the motivation to keep going.

09-14-2011, 06:00 PM
Because if I finish losing all this weight, I might be able to use the excess skin on my arms to fly. This would make cosplaying as Rocky the Flying Squirrel a cinch.
