New month and more reasons for us to keep going! I love all of the reasons from October, let's make November another strong month!

One reason for me to stay on plan today is because I completed Day 4 of the 30 Day Shred and was able to finish without stopping! Now to go from modified moves to advanced!

11-01-2012, 06:22 PM
because I am worth it .....

11-01-2012, 06:24 PM
because I just joined a local biggest loser challenge. Must keep those scales going down every Saturday ! I want onderland this year !

11-01-2012, 07:06 PM
I wanna b in ONEderland before end of 2012!

11-01-2012, 07:29 PM
Does anyone mind if I post in spite of not being 100 lb club?
I find you ladies so inspiring. I love this idea.

I will stay on plan today because it is day number one for me or a 12 week challenge, and I will start it off right.

11-01-2012, 08:39 PM
because I need to get into more of my cute clothes.

11-01-2012, 08:44 PM
Because I have been sleeping so good at night and my feet don't hurt like they used to.

11-01-2012, 10:53 PM
To set an example & to be an encouragement to my hubby.
As many to of you know, just a week ago he was in the ICU of the local hospital. He is diabetic iwth high blood pressure. He'd gone in for a physical to update his meds...anywhos, his heart was beating totally irregularly. Dr. thought he was on the verge of a heart attack. He celebrated his 52nd birthday today & I'm SOOOO THANKFUL!!!!

Yes, I want to loose the weight my health & well-being but I also want to have my hubby with me for years to come. I figure if I encourage him, we can do this together. His health & my health are like conjoined twins in our marriage. I feel if he is healthy, then I too should be healthy.

Pink Hurricane
11-05-2012, 02:44 PM
Because I want to prove to myself I am worth being healthy and fit!

11-05-2012, 09:41 PM
So my knees and feet stop hurting so much

11-05-2012, 09:42 PM
I need to start reading this thread to remind myself of all the good reasons to stay on plan. Thanks to all of you for sharing your motivation.

Here's mine for today: because it feels great to be able to do 25 "real" pushups.

11-06-2012, 12:47 AM
Because I'm hoping to have a decent weigh-in this week after not getting to do one last week.

Elladorine! That's awesome! I'm so happy for you...congrats!

Aw, thank you! :hug:

11-06-2012, 01:09 PM
Because I need to get through tonight in one piece and eating junk won't help with that.

Pink Hurricane
11-06-2012, 02:12 PM
Because my husband can pick me up and I can wrap my legs around his waist, first time that has ever happened to me, which gives me more motivation so he's not struggling as much! :D

11-06-2012, 02:32 PM
Because my husband can pick me up and I can wrap my legs around his waist, first time that has ever happened to me, which gives me more motivation so he's not struggling as much! :D

I love this NSV so much! Congratulations!!

Because I am taking my very active 17YO son on vacation in August, and I want to make him huff and puff trying to keep up with me! (Okay - I just want to do something super active and cool, like hike the Grand Canyon, without making him wish he was there with his friends instead of me.)

11-06-2012, 02:36 PM
Because falling off track every time I try to lose weight is not how I'm ever going to achieve my goal...I need to be stronger starting today.

11-06-2012, 02:39 PM
because people are noticing the hard work and effort im putting into the new me!

Pink Hurricane
11-07-2012, 12:48 PM
Because my last pair of small 18's and some bigger 16s are finally beginning to feel loose again!

11-07-2012, 02:50 PM
Because I need to earn my next charm.

11-08-2012, 04:08 PM
Because I like feeling good about myself instead of like a big failure.

11-08-2012, 04:21 PM
because I really want to attend my 30th college reunion and won't want to go if I'm not looking sharp!

11-09-2012, 07:31 AM

11-09-2012, 12:59 PM
Because the new Healthy Eating Class starts monday n i want my bloodwork numbers to be even better than last month!

11-09-2012, 01:59 PM

11-10-2012, 07:51 AM
because I want to have lost some weight when I go back to see the dietician.

11-10-2012, 11:58 AM
Because I just got home from a week long business trip and the scale shows a 1.5 pound gain. Dammit.

11-10-2012, 02:20 PM
IF I do not start today, then I will have to start another day and the job will be even bigger as I will probably weigh more. I might as well start today and save myself the extra work!

11-11-2012, 08:27 AM
because I would like to lose 2 more pounds before by Thanksgiving, if possible.

Misti in Seattle

Because I am only 9 pounds away from the weight goal my surgeon set for me in order to possibly do a much needed and wanted procedure.

11-11-2012, 10:54 PM
Because this stall has gone on long enough.

11-11-2012, 11:01 PM
Another reason to stay on track? I know remember what it was like to have a goal. I want to loose 25 lbs between Oct 5 & Christmas, so far I have lost 15.
Also my hubby is doing pretty well. He is walking with me nearly everyday. His diabetes seems to be leveling out & he is feeling soooo much better. That is an awesome gift to us both!!!

11-12-2012, 02:43 PM
I may have hit a plateau and need to be able to push thru it before it gets out of hand or i just plain give in to it!

11-12-2012, 05:23 PM
Because I think I very much might possibly be in the middle of a woosh. :carrot:

Those numbers on the scale sure look better on the way down, rather than on the way up.

Misti in Seattle
11-13-2012, 08:20 AM
Because I want to be part of the solution of the massive obesity/overeating crisis instead of part of the problem.

I bought the BEST new winter coat but its a bit to snug.

This month I really dont care about lbs, I just wanna fit in my cute coat!!

Misti in Seattle
11-14-2012, 07:08 AM
Because I put on my winter sweatpants and went somewhere, only to soon realize that the only thing keeping them from completely falling off of me was the drawstring!

Yay Garnet!!!

Because when I am sitting near the end of the aisle in church and someone needs to get by me to the middle, they can easily do so. And because I can now stand up without grabbing the back of the chair in front of me and pulling myself up.

Because I have always been a very active, social person, and I can't stand being unable (or not feeling like) being either when I am too fat to do things.

While I've been wearing one pair of jeans in a size 16 that my aunt gave me, I'm still mostly in 18's. But I recently bought my very own first 16's at Old Navy (on clearance, only $10!) and it feels great. :carrot:

Way back when I started all this I couldn't even fit into any jeans at the plus size stores. :o Watch out 14's, I'll be all over you very soon! ;)

Because at work yesterday someone told me "You look awesome!" And another person commented that I was wearing makeup... when I said "I always wear makeup" she commented that I looked like I was wearing more blush, etc. -- neat thing was that I usually DO wear blush but did not have any on yesterday... my complexion is just that much better!

11-29-2012, 09:28 AM
because the men are REEEEAAALLY starting to pay attention to me everywhere I go, and as a single woman, I LIKE IT! :D

Because the same person who asked me yesterday if I was wearing more makeup walked by again today and stopped me and commented about the makeup. I said, no, it is the same... and she stopped to take a closer look, saying "something is different about you." Then it hit her.. she said "You have lost weight!!!!" :) People are noticing, and my friends and co-workers are all being very kind and complimentary.

12-01-2012, 03:20 AM
Okay this is two :)

Because everywhere I go people keep commenting on how much nicer my face looks; also friends who have not seen me for a couple of months were amazed today.

Second... because today when I was directed to park in the inside lane of the ferry (driver's side door next to the wall) I was able to easily open my car door and get out and up the side around my car.
