I started this thread so that we could share why we can go one day, one more week, one more month... and stick to this diet!
I can stick to it because:
my doctor will brag on me
I'll look great in clothes and I'll want to buy more
This Christmas someone will tell me, "you've lost weight haven't you?:carrot:"

just because I can do it one more day and it won't kill me...It will only make me healthy

because I want to be proud of how I look!
And I want my husband to be proud of me.
I want it to be fun to pick out clothes!
I didn't really feel bad 30 lbs heavier, but I hated the mirror and photos of me.
I feel great now and it's only going to get better!

because...I want to feel good about myself again. I started grad school this week, and we took our student id pictures. I thought I would be the only one who saw my picture. Nope!! The first day, the teacher had all of our pictures on the overhead to take attendance. All I could see was my big head compared to all of the small heads!That picture is my motivation to get this weight off once and for all!

because i went to weigh in at the center and after eating off plan for 3 days i didn't lose but i didn't gain either! So relieved! Next week i hope to have lost at least 2 lbs.

I am going to stick to this plan because I can see how carrying around all of that extra weight affected me. I was a mess physically and I feel so good now! I was a heart attack waiting to happen, and now my blood pressure is low and so is my cholesterol level! I believe I will be around a long time and will be able to be at my grandchildren's weddings and be able to hold my great-grandkids sometime in the far distant future.

RW Quilts,

I see you have lost a good bit of weight. How are you sticking with it? I am starting to get bored with the food I eat. Do you make things from the recipe book? I know I still have a couple of months to go.

rwquilts
09-14-2012, 12:23 AM
I didn't buy the cookbook, but have gotten a little creative with dinners lately. The stuffed peppers i had last night and tonight were really yummy. Breakfast and lunch are pretty standard and I don't seem to mind. I am feeling so good about myself and that's all the motivation I need. I get up at 5:40 and go to the gym every morning.

cmarty
09-17-2012, 07:46 PM
I sticking to this diet because someone at work finally realized I was losing...well she said those clothes look great on you...you look thin!!

I'm sticking to this diet because I am just beginning to figure it out! Signed up Wednesday, down 2.5 pounds Friday night (I realize that is just the swelling going down, so to speak). Still feeling a little weird, but I trust that will pass. I want the energy, the brain health, and to be able to take lots less insulin!

Because I have control over this.

Had a talk with my skinny-b*tch sister in law yesterday (who I love to pieces) and she reminded me that she is a marathon runner because running is an area of her life in which she has control.

I realized - I have control too? I'm by no means a marathon runner (would love to be!) but I DO have control over what I put into my mouth. No one is forcing me - it's my choice to take control.

I control this - this is my choice. :-)

I just started MRC three weeks ago and have been lurking here and reading the archives. Thanks for the support you have all already-and unknowingly-given to me. I am home sick today, and I want to eat a carton of ice cream, but I'm not going to. I. Can. Do. This.

**this is my new life..today, tomorrow, and my future. I no longer live my life to eat...I eat to live.

**I haven't suffered a migraine since day one on plan and I'm afraid to eat anything off plan because I don't want a migraine :dizzy:

**I've stuck to my HCG plan from day one. (June 1, 2012) I've done everything the way MRC has thought me. I love this plan and I've never cheated. No food is worth all I've accomplished!!

Welcome MrsRiker! I see this is your first post! I lurked for way longer than three weeks and wish I'd joined sooner - it's fun being able to talk with everyone about little successes and setbacks. I used to be able to eat a whole pizza too. I still could I suppose... I don't know if those urges will ever go away. The fact of the matter is I'm a glutton. But I'm choosing to not be anymore! I'm in control and love this plan. I'm sticking with it!

So let's see - I'm sticking with this diet today because my center just started a new client promotion game and if I move my game piece forward four more spaces I win a free box of HNS's. I got this!

Wow, so you suffered headaches too? I haven't heard or read that yet in these forums.

I suffered severe migraines until I started MRC. I haven't even had a slight headache since day one of MRC. It's changed my entire life!! I was seeing a neurologist for a couple years...taking prescriptions drugs of all kinds..the Dr tested all sorts of meds...ordered scans of my brain to see what was going on etc...nothing helped!! I was in bed 1-3 days a week with my migraines and throwing up with almost everyone of them...and now...not one single headache. The only thing I can think of is the horrible food and sugar I was eating all day. WOW!! It's like a miracle for me. I had suffered the severe ones for the last 10 years and headaches since I was 15!!

I really feel like this is what has kept me on plan to a tee...cuz I really don't want to have a migraine and I tell myself "if I eat that, I will be in bed with a pounding head the rest of the day"
