Alrighty everyone let's make April the best month so far! Give your reason for staying on plan today, or as many reasons as you have! It's always fun to see what everyone's motivation is and it can be stuff you haven't even thought of yourself!


One reason for me to stay on plan today is because I found my biggest trigger, stress, to be the EXACT reason why I put on weight or put back on weight. I am going to stay on plan because no matter the amount of stress I am dealing with that can derail my exercise plans, I can always stay on top of my nutrition and eating healthy and not going over my plan.


What's your reason today? :D

I am staying on plan because today it the first day I have weighed in as "overweight" rather than "obese."

I never want to be obese again!

I am staying on plan because seeing a lower number on the scale is fun!

Yay I love that you moved into the overweight category Underwater! That's a wonderful feeling. And I agree with you rodeogirl!


My reason today is because after having gained, I weighed in the morning to keep a check, and I got a 4lb whoosh! Now back in the 230s, going to be in the 220s again before too long!

I am staying on plan because I want to go mountain hiking this summer, and the more weight I carry, the harder it is on my bad knee. Can't wait, I'm already starting to train!

I am staying on plan today because:

I go for a check up in one week and I can't wait to see the doctor's face when she weighs me and realizes I have lost 93+ pounds.

I think I got checked out by a man the other day - and it felt awesome! I want that to happen more often. :)

I am only 7 pounds from my next reward and I want it!

I feel like I can conquer the world right now... and I want that feeling to continue.

Today I'm staying on plan because yesterday I was not so much on plan and it's important to NOT let things turn the other direction.

I'm staying on plan today because I'm finally seeing the scale move again. I know I can do this! The trigger I eliminated was those 10 calorie sodas. I didn't realize that was setting me back. Bottom line: it feels good to eat good!

One reason to stay on plan is I need to update some of my clothes soon and I would like them to be a smaller size!

Staying on plan today so I can look awesome riding my new bike I bought at the end of last year. Spring weather is coming next week!

(This bike I bought last year was the only 28inch one I could find to fit my knees without hitting the handlebars. Got it home only to find out it had a 300lb weight limit and I was 320+/-. Was too embarrassed to tell my husband I might bend the frame or pop the tires so I never rode it, just kept telling him I wasn't confident enough yet to keep steady (yes, I lied...but I had to). Now I'm almost 100lbs less than the max weight, I hope this bike makes me look like a skinny-Minnie! Well, as much of a skinny-Minnie as possible. :) )

ichoose2believe
04-05-2013, 10:51 AM
Because when I tried on swimsuits I could fit in to a smaller size and the only reason I didn't buy was because of style instead of fit :)

1. Because all my old clothes are starting to fit! Love that
2. Because we moved our wedding date up a whole year and I have 18 months to look da bomb.

Michelle125
04-05-2013, 12:10 PM
1. Because I have no cycle and want to have a baby at some point.
2. I want to see my old self in the mirror again, when I was confident and proud of my appearance.
3. I want to swap clothes with my Mom. That is something I have not done since the 6th grade! I think I would cry if I could go into her closet and put something on. I went through my teenage and young adult years and now my 30's not knowing what it's like to swap clothes!

The weight limit thing is a HUGE one for me. We spent a fortune on a 500lb limit camping chair at Cabella's last summer, and I remember being humiliated when I came out of the camper when we were out east to see my brother in law sitting in it and joking about how huge it was. I've only used it like four times, but I don't even care if it's a waste. (and it isn't like I can't still use it). It's a huge progress marker.

I'm looking forward to jumping on my nephew's trampoline!

Keep Moving Forward
04-05-2013, 05:59 PM
Because I realized last night that if I lose 9.5lbs each month, I could be in onederland by Christmas, beating my ticker goal by three months! That's doable only if I'm diligent every day, which will be tough but SO worth it!

04-09-2013, 06:07 PM
Staying on plan because my supermarket receipt only had 3 categories on it today, "meat", "deli", "produce". The produce took up 3/4ths of the receipt and it made me happy. There wasn't one processed food in my whole order. The only reason for the deli is my husband likes it for lunch. Otherwise, it would have only been lean proteins and veggies! This time last year would have been deli, meat (ribs, chicken wings, burgers), and all processed crap (cookies, chips, coke, etc.).

Today was a rainbow of veggies and it was beautiful!!!

Back to IE basics!

I am staying OP today because I love eating what I want when I'm hungry, enjoying my food, eating like a thin person, and letting the weight take care of itself... Because it does!! It's only when I stress myself out and become obsessive about micromanaging things that I STOP losing weight, I become miserably depressed, I stop trusting the process to work. I've been doing that for a few months and it has NOT helped!!

So, I'm staying OP today, because obsessing over it isn't fun, and I want to be happy again... Like I did when I started this 20lbs heavier than I am now :)

Silverfire
04-10-2013, 11:12 AM

Don't even tell me that!! I'm on a mission to 199 and will let out a huge sigh of relief when I do. Are you saying the obsession continues??

And to keep on topic, staying on plan because I met someone today who couldn't believe I've lost 125lbs nevermind in less than 8 months. He was shocked, then I think he was staring looking for some kind of proof lol. Wanted to say, my jeans are a 14! Used to be a 28!

Haha, sorry Elvis :) The euphoria of Onederland is still there, don't worry, but no the obsession of watching that scale go down in numbers never really goes away. But, I will say, I can't see any lower number or maybe even goal ever comparing to the excitement of seeing 199 on the scale.

You are sooooo close and soon will experience that wonderful feeling yourself :)

I'm looking forward to jumping on my nephew's trampoline!

I spent several hundred dollars on a treadmill with a 250 lb weight limit not thinking at the time that there was no way I could be over two-fifty lbs. And I weighed myself in at 270 and I was just too embarrassed to take it back - and instead of dealing with the problem I continued to not eat well or excercise and tacked on another 40 lbs. I can't wait to be skinny enough to actually use it! I've had family members unknowingly tease and humiliate me when they see how far back my driver's seat is or how if we sit in a booth at a restaurant the booth can't be connected to the wall so we can move it. I don't think "skinnies" get how humiliating that can be.

I wanted to start the pill at 175, but... I think I'm going to see if I can get it while I'm in the high 180s. My doc's scale puts me up 10lbs in winter clothes and trainers, so I'll be wearing very light clothing when I go, lol!!

Getting too much performance anxiety around 175, I'm starting uni in 6 months and I want my TOM to settle down before then if possible. My BMI would be under 35, so I think I have a shot at getting what I want :D

So, only about half a stone until I can make my appointment!! THAT I can do :)

I will stay on plan today because I am 1.8 lbs away from ordering myself a tonne of new make up as a reward! i did have 3 cookies today, but it was the first time having them in ages and I am counting them in my calories.

I will be transforming my body back to where it should have been.:D

I am now the poster girl for Ideal Protein at work ...and the possibilities to change your life... I feel everyone is watching...I want to tell people it is possible if you want to change your life and live more healthy! On the flip side I know unfortunately that some would like to see me fail because my losing weight makes them feel jealous....and makes them feel Judged:?:

I Never Told Anyone At Work That I Was On A Diet Until They Asked......Now every morsel I eat ...or even how much Water I Drink is noticed :dizzy:

I feel a great deal of pressure to stay OP

I was told the other night innocently ...."Oh But I Enjoy Eating", So I guess she was implying that I don't like the taste of food.....soo it is easy for me to lose weight? Just let roll off my back! Common misconceptions if your successful on a diet you don't like Food! Soo it is easy for you:o hmmm I see:D

So I will continue on this diet Or I need to switch Jobs cuz the amount of rubbing my face in weight gain would be more than I could tolerate :D

Feel like I am soo exposed without any privacy trying to do my thing ...while everyone ......Gawks :o
Good luck to us all as we strive to be the people we dream of becoming:D,Roo2

I haven't gone off plan since last July and I'm not going to start now. First gain on the scale today isn't going to bring me down, I've worked too hard to get here and still have so far to go. Praying to God for strength to know this is just a blip along the way.

I confided in someone that I was really sad to still weigh 200lbs this week and she looked me up and down and said there was no way I weighed 200lbs. I swore to her that I did and she said I look much slimmer than that. I insisted she was just being kind and she said she wouldn't lie to me about something like this. :carrot::carrot::carrot:

I do feel slimmer this time around losing weight, I hope it's due to me breaking my neck exercising every day! :woops:

Staying on plan to keep looking slimmer than 200! :D

You never know who is watching you for inspiration....so just by you showing that it is indeed possible may help them from being discouraged and throwing in the towel in despair. Just my simply following your plan you may impact others without ever knowing it.

I want to be that ripple in the pond for someone, give them that ....oh yeah if she can do it ..so can I ! I feel a responsibility to give people who are afraid to dream ...look at an average Joe like me and say ...it can't be too hard cuz she did it!;)
T





This is why I try to be nice .....Cuz you never know who you will encounter that day....your interaction could have been the only positive thing that happened to them.....unfortunately for some people in the world this is there reality.
If we all take just a little extra time to extend ourself to others we can make the world a kinder place! :)



Good Luck to us all as we strive for our goals in life ....I wish everyone great

I will stay on plan because I have too much to lose if I don't. I'm hoping my dramatic weight loss will inspire belief from my doctors that I'm capable of carrying twins in my body. Whatever happens is not up to me, but I'm hoping that they'll give me a chance. One chance.
