Figured I would start the new one for October since we've still been on the September thread!


One reason for me to stay on plan today is because I have been sticking with this for two weeks and I am not giving up on myself ever again!

I am with you on this one! Plus I want to be able to find an outfit I actually like and look good in for thanksgiving when we go see relatives out of state that haven't seen me since May when I was starting my weight-loss journey

- Because it's possible for me to weigh in below 290 this week, and I've been stuck above it for a very long time!

- Because I had a bad binge yesterday and it made my body feel AWFUL today. I definitely don't want to do that to myself again.

Because last night when my husband got home, I was wearing my black top that is cut like a really short dress while I was making dinner (I always wear it with jeans or capris but not around the house) and he immediately started complimenting how sexy I looked. Huge motivator for me :D

Because I'm only 4 pounds away from getting my BMI under 35. :dizzy: That's down from being nearly 55. :o

Also, I swear I'm noticing a difference in how I look and feel today. My "kitty got claws" shirt fits perfectly out of the dryer; it was way too small for me to wear earlier this year and while it's been fitting better, it hasn't been entirely comfortable until now. :carrot:

Happy Anniversary Elladorine!

Congratulations, Elladorine! What a great milestone!
Thank you ladies! :hug:

I might have overdone lunch a little (ate tapas and probably had one appetizer plate too many), but still kept portions small and got a lot of walking in! And dinner was great, ate at the Mirage CPK and they have a new little section on the menu with healthier choices and calorie counts! So I got their grilled chicken chimichurri (550 calories). :)

Oh, and on our trip to the mall my husband led me into a Godiva where he bought us some chocolate-covered strawberries. It's a little tradition of ours since it's the very first gift he ever bought me! Back then we had just started long-distance dating and hadn't even met in person yet! :dizzy: When we got married we had a bride and groom decorated set of strawberries to top our cake. :D Anyway, we each enjoyed two of the strawberries yesterday, a yummy treat that wasn't over-the-top in calories. :)

Oh, and while we were out I noticed I'd missed a call. When I checked my voice mail I found out I've got a job interview tomorrow! Nothing major, just a seasonal cashier position at a craft store . . . but because of my anxieties I haven't worked a "regular" job since 2007! :o I'm hoping I'll have a much easier time being on my feet now that I'm a good 50+ pounds lighter.

Anyway, a reason to stay on plan today is so I can be even stronger and healthier by the new year. :)

I fit into 16 jeans last night. :^: It's so surreal. And I'll admit it, even though I wasn't expecting it at all I started crying. :cry: I know I fit into 16's many years back but I honestly don't remember it. :dizzy: And to think I used to be too big to buy any jeans from the plus size stores! :o

I didn't think the realization that yes, this is really happening would hit me so hard, but I'm still used to the mindset that it takes 40 pounds or more to go down a size. So yes, definitely staying on plan today. :cloud9:
