Alright people let's make it another great month! :D What's one reason for you to stay on plan today? What worked or didn't work for you last month?


One reason for me to stay on plan today is because I finally have this nutrition part of my lifestyle change down, and the way I feel physically and mentally makes all the difference!

02-01-2013, 02:35 PM
Because getting down into the 2teens by the end of the month would be fantastic with a side of awesome sauce!

Silverfire
02-01-2013, 02:54 PM
I am going to stay on plan today because I don't want to be fat anymore. That's pretty much how I feel everyday :D

HelloNurse
02-01-2013, 07:23 PM
Because we're a month closer to springtime, and I would like to not look completely ridiculous in a dress this year.

The winter coat I have owned for over 10 years and worn like 3 times 10 years ago is almost able to be zippered (I can touch the 2 sides of the zippers, I just can't connect them!). It's a size Large and it will be a huge success to get this coat on. Hoping to wear it on Valentine's Day!

lunarsongbird
02-01-2013, 07:53 PM
Because last month made me SOOO over the moon happy- and I want to feel that again! And chase Ang into the 2teens! ;)

MizMelis
02-02-2013, 12:03 AM
because after going 5 days without grain and eating bread today(er yesterday ? since it's after midnight here lol) made me feel like major crap for the whole day. I don't want to feel like crap anymore(I now know that grain= bad for me so no more grain lol).
that's my reason to stay on plan !
Plus, I'd love to get back into the 2teens lol(I'm up to 223 at the moment).

Angihas2

Silverfire
02-07-2013, 10:31 AM
To make up for the terrible write off of yesterday... Beer, cheesy quesidillas, and some more beer. All the day before weigh in, stupid! (still lost .04 somehow) Back on track this week, hoping for a whoosh next week!

Roo2
02-07-2013, 10:52 AM
If you talk the talk you need to walk the walk!
Once you put it out there you must follow through or it will forever be a thorn in your side!
For me it all boils down to to knowing what you are really made of.
I believe it is easy to say the words ...putting actions behind them that 's what makes the difference.
I know there are numerous excuses I could think up why I can't do something...but in the end it would a pathetic rationale to protect my ego !
I try very hard to not tell lies to others So WHY SHOULD I LIE TO MYSELF!
So I go on, even when I don't feel like i!Sometimes I think I'm in that old movie with Bill Murray GroundHogs day ,where everyday is repeated and he can begin to predict what will happen everyday.
Good Luck ,

Im staying on track because, even though my weigh in today was up .6lbs (tom), I can see a difference in my body that is positive. And I know if I dont stay on plan, the scale wont change in the direction I need and want it to!

mnckrstn0
02-07-2013, 12:41 PM

MizMelis

elvislover324
02-09-2013, 12:37 PM
Trying to meet my Valentine's challenge goal. Weighing in Monday and then again Thursday. If I don't make it, I will surely be so close. Then hopefully the 2-teens quickly followup!

Because in 23 more pounds I am getting... ummm.... some much needed male attention.

My best friend of 25 years promised me that I could use him any way I wanted when I hit 175 as my reward. And after a 7 year drought, well all I can say is I hope he has a really good prescription plan (good old Viagria) and a good hospitalization program, because by the time I am done with him, is going to have to be admitted for exhaustion!

LMAO - I can't believe I just wrote that and put it out there.

Because when I lose weight I always get stuck at around 230 and I end up giving up and gaining it back. This time here I am stuck at right about the same spot... but instead of giving up I am staying on plan and working out like crazy and wearing smaller clothes.
