:carrot: I cannot believe it's already May!!!! Let's do this people, another month to make the greatest so far in 2013. It's spring, the flowers are blooming, local farmer's markets are opening up left and right, and it's the perfect time to get in some extra exercise and really work on ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually!

What's your reason for staying on plan today?

Mine is progress, with having been eating cleaner for two weeks, I am really beginning to see some progress not just weight wise, but inches, my skin is starting to glow more, my mind is clearer, my emotions are more in check, and things are overall more positive!

Staying on plan because I am so very thankful for all I have accomplished and what I will continue to accomplish. Staying on plan also because it's a powerful motivator when we all join together and prove that we can do this!!

I'm finally scheduling my Doctor's appointment to get the pill! I've analysed my graph for the past few months, and should get a new low weight the week starting 13th May... I know it's completely counterintuitive to intuitive eating, but I need my number as low as possible when I set foot in that office again! Sometimes I forget I'm nearly 32 and responsible doc's WILL check your BMI much more stringently.

This is a really big deal for me, will improve my life in some major ways, and it would be an amazing birthday present! I just CAN'T be turned down for it a third time, I've been focussing on being able to do this for 6 months!

I think a few weeks of low carbing it and staying away from salt should do the trick, as will making my appointment for the most optimal week in the month. SO glad I've been daily weighing and tracking my graph for 3 months now, otherwise I wouldn't have nearly as much info about the best time to go for it! Man... I feel like I'm sitting my driving test all over again. I passed that the third time, and I hope this will be the same!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me! :D

Staying on plan today as I saw my reflection in the corner of my eye and stepped back to look again. Who is THAT? I don't even look like me anymore.

And today when I went to pick up some test results, the girl looked at my license, looked at me, looked back at my license and smiled. She knows me from being in there from time to time but still has to copy the ID info from it. I wonder if she would have accepted it if she didn't kinda know me?? I don't look anything like my license anymore! No hair color now, smaller face now, so different!

He's never slept on the sofa for one night of our marriage! But I have!! I get mad and leave, LOL!! And your wife is probably more reasonable than me. I mean, who would kick their husband out of bed for being 5lbs less than them? I think my diet is causing me to go insane!

He doesn't want the pizza, it's me trying to force-feed calories into him! He was actually afraid to tell me his weight when I asked (LOL!) as he knows I'm on the hunt for some 180s myself. And he's bought me so many clothes (even ones he doesn't know about LOL!) so I can't use that against him. I guess I'll just have to be happy he's healthy and skinny!

I'm staying on plan (i.e. not binge, not purge) today because I can. Because I am strong.

Also, because it'll be day 4 without a binge, and I found a new strategy to motivate myself: for every day without a binge/purge, I virtually put aside 20$ from my account that would've gone to purchasing binge foods (and that's a conservative estimate) to a "wellness fund" to be spent on luxurious items such as massages or really fancy clothers. Once I got a 100$, I'll get an awesome massage. So, only today and tomorrow between me having hard-earned a much-needed deep tissue massage :D

I am pretty sure that I felt those things BEFORE I had the urge to go and binge, yet I only became aware of them and experienced them AFTER I resisted it. Proficient repression anyway?

So, I'll stay on plan again today because I can. And it's Friday, so I won't spoil the almost-weekend mood :)
