100 lb. Club - One Reason to Stay On Plan~July
07-01-2013, 09:47 AM
I am just in shock that we are over half way through 2013! So let's do it again people, give us one (or many) reasons why you are choosing to stay on plan today!
Today my reason is that I have hit my highest weight in a very long time, and before I get all the way back down the slippery slope, I am going to reverse the trend and work my way back to healthy!
07-01-2013, 11:33 AM
Because I can see 200 and I really want to get below it!
07-01-2013, 01:14 PM
because I love getting compliments at work! So shallow, but it's true!;)
07-01-2013, 04:33 PM
Because I started to backslide at the very end of June. Here's to starting (and keeping) July on track!
07-01-2013, 05:21 PM
Because I want to see 199.8 by the end of this month! And this time I aim to stay there until I can go even lower:-)
07-01-2013, 07:41 PM
I am staying on Plan today, because I am crabby now, but it will pass, and I will be less crabby tomorrow! :D
07-01-2013, 08:25 PM
Because, I just want to feel better.
07-01-2013, 09:16 PM
because I want to see 199 by the end of the month. I don't want to get caught up in all this summer fun like I normally do. Please God help me with this .
07-01-2013, 10:38 PM
Because I can't afford NOT to do this
07-02-2013, 08:08 AM
because this summer can make a big difference . No soft drinks for me this month. Sugar Detox also
07-02-2013, 09:01 AM
because I want to be able to walk.
07-02-2013, 01:15 PM
Because I'm so sick of being ashamed of myself and hoping to never cross paths with someone from my past cause I don't want then to think "man, she got fat!"
07-02-2013, 01:30 PM
Because I'm tired of weighing in the 220s.
07-02-2013, 01:57 PM
I'm leaving on Thursday for a 1 1/2 week road trip to Colorado and my mom already bought a bunch of junk food to eat in the van on the way out there. I need to stay on plan so that when I gain weight on this trip* it won't be nearly as bad and I'll be able to jump right back on the wagon and continue my weight loss journey.
*I'm sure I'll gain weight as I can't say no to junk food and I usually develop a "it's my vacation and I can eat whatever I want" attitude on vacation.
Because it's freaking ridiculous that I've been in the 160's for FOUR MONTHS.
07-03-2013, 06:36 AM
Because today my main motivation is to be able to have a healthy pregnancy when my husband and I succeed on getting preggo!! :preg:
07-04-2013, 08:51 AM
One month until our honeymoon, that's my big reason today!
07-05-2013, 02:21 PM
I lost a good bit of weight this week, it was the perfect jump start I needed to stay on plan day after day!
07-05-2013, 03:15 PM
Way to go Pink Hurricane
my reason: because I can't take living like this anymore (no, I'm not depressed or suicidal, just sick of being obese)
07-05-2013, 06:00 PM
Because I want to be able to fit into my new-to-me winter coat.
07-05-2013, 08:39 PM
Because I'm finally over my two months stuck in the twoteens and I can see onederland right around the corner. I can do this.
07-06-2013, 07:45 AM
Love all of the reasons ladies! :D
Because my mood has completely elevated, and I want to keep that going!
07-07-2013, 08:13 AM
Because I weigh 287 today, and would like to be under 275 by Fall.
07-07-2013, 12:42 PM
Because I like how my muscles feel the day after a tough weight training session and the fact that I went seven miles on the bike yesterday in the same amount of time it usually takes me to do six.
07-07-2013, 01:10 PM
Because I was 274.8 this morning and it won't be long until I can move on down to the 260's and 250's thread!
07-08-2013, 08:19 AM
Because Onederland is in sight!
07-08-2013, 11:20 AM
Because my husband said this morning "Wow baby you have lost a lot of weight, I can see your hourglass figure again, so sexy!" :D So needless to say I am extra motivated and extremely hyper about him being able to notice too!
07-08-2013, 12:07 PM
because I'm starting to feel better about myself!
07-12-2013, 11:31 PM
I am noticing inches are coming off from my waist, and I want to keep that up!
07-13-2013, 07:23 PM
Because I watched part of "weight of the nation" (or whatever that documentary is called) and am more motivated than ever! (well, only watched the 18 minute video on youtube about stereo types, but that was enough!)
07-13-2013, 08:42 PM
Because I can see 200 and I want to get below it!
07-20-2013, 12:56 PM
Because I haven't lasted more than a week on a weight loss plan in about two years, and it's time to break that cycle.
07-20-2013, 01:11 PM
I'm with you Ashley!
I've regained 28lbs... & I need to turn this bus back around! Time to break the cycle. What helped me lose 40lbs before... was keeping the mentality to stop eating when I was 80% full. Which then got me to start cutting my meals in half & then eating them spaced out every 2 hours, instead of a whole big meal all at once. I also cut out fast food, soda & most junk food. Which I've steadily picked back up & is the main reason I've regained weight. & my energy level has taken a nose dive. I'm so lethargic these days!
So my reason to stay OP today is, because I want to feel lighter & more energetic again!
07-22-2013, 07:25 PM
Because I will NOT miss the chub rub when it's gone.
07-23-2013, 08:29 PM
No one else doing this?
I will stay on plan today because each day I feel more confident than the last.
07-23-2013, 10:06 PM
Because I love the way my stomach feels when I am not bloated with excess weight and water!
07-24-2013, 07:24 PM
I will stay on plan today because my feet hurt, and I know this goes away when I'm lighter.
07-24-2013, 10:06 PM
Because if I keep at this one day my knees may not click as I walk up the stairs (I've already started to notice a HUGE improvement)
07-24-2013, 10:11 PM
Because I want to feel good and healthy for me once and for all
07-25-2013, 10:05 AM
Because I am only 10lbs away from my first goal!
07-25-2013, 12:10 PM
staying on plan because even though TOM arrived early I have my first 5K on saturday!! nervous / excited all at once !!! gulp! :o:D:o
07-25-2013, 08:05 PM
Because I'm actually kind of excited for weigh-in on Saturday, and I want it to be worth the anticipation.
07-26-2013, 07:59 PM
Because the end of today marks 2 weeks on plan, and I haven't done that in a long time!
07-27-2013, 12:34 PM
Because I had a good loss this week, and next week, I want to see those 280s!
07-27-2013, 09:11 PM
Because my previous low in February was 237...I'm almost there. Excited to start loosing some new pounds rather than the ones I lost earlier this year
07-28-2013, 10:47 AM
Because after this two-week vacation, I am now back at my all-time high if 258.8 and I need to get back in control.
07-29-2013, 06:39 AM
because my three days on plan feel so much better than bingeing.
07-29-2013, 09:13 AM
Because I see why I don't reach my goal I don't always pay attention to what I am eating or how much I exercising ! Because I have a wedding to attend in Sept and I want to look the best I can ! Because I am tired of wasting precious time ! I have no excuses it's me and my scales to battle this out and I am gonna WIN !!!!
07-29-2013, 09:57 AM
because I ran my first 5K this weekend and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and now I want to do better and run more :)
07-29-2013, 11:17 AM
Because I'm only 2.4 pounds away from my next mini-goal and I'm starting to see progress with my lifting program. Being able to see newly developed muscle trumps the slice (or two) of cake someone left in the break-room!
07-29-2013, 12:36 PM
Congratulations nitrus29 on your first 5K! I want to stay on plan because I realized how much I missed healthy, home-cooked food!
07-29-2013, 11:26 PM
Because August will be a challenging month, so I need some good momentum going into it.
07-30-2013, 08:37 AM
Because I am close to getting under 200.
07-30-2013, 09:39 AM
Because the scale said 289.6 this morning and I never want to see the 290s again.
07-30-2013, 11:08 AM
Because I feel so crappy when I eat bad
07-30-2013, 06:15 PM
Yesterday was Day 3 of healthy eating after a 3 month hiatus and I had soup and salad planned for dinner and came home to lasagna, garlic bread, chicken, white rice, stuffed grape leaves, chocolate silk pie and an array of Mediterranean sweets. I quietly prepared my dinner and went upstairs instead of eating with the rest of my family.
I didn't give in and I survived. I can do it for 2 more days!
07-30-2013, 06:31 PM
Because being obese has hardly done me any favours,, on the contrary it made me feel extremely self conscious, a butt of people's jokes and critiques, and unhappy because there were so many things I cldnt do and enjoy because of my weight issues!
07-30-2013, 08:07 PM
Because by staying on plan and having healthy habits, I feel less tired and can accomplish more in a day.
07-30-2013, 11:40 PM
Because my honeymoon starts this weekend, and I want to stay on plan for most of it!
07-31-2013, 08:12 AM
Because I can see 199 and I really want to reach it!
07-31-2013, 08:52 AM
Because I went out for a walk with friends yesterday and not only did I keep up with them, I outran them parts of the way. I wouldn't have been able to do that 30 pounds heavier. Staying on plan so I can keep on feeling awesome doing things I haven't been able to do before.
07-31-2013, 09:33 AM
because I realize that eating will not take away physical pain.
07-31-2013, 10:06 AM
Because I had a little too much sodium last night and I want to see the number on that scale back down where it belongs
07-31-2013, 10:11 AM
because July is done and the weight loss is getting slower.. need to keep on keeping on!!
08-01-2013, 07:31 AM
Because this morning I was 2 pounds lighter than Sunday, just by eating well and walking three times so far this week, so I want to keep going!
08-01-2013, 08:19 AM
Because I want to get under 200 pounds. I will probably post this everyday until I get there!
08-01-2013, 10:52 AM
Because I want to get under 200 pounds. I will probably post this everyday until I get there!
