08-02-2013, 11:27 AM
I will stay on plan today because I have spent way, way too many days off plan.

08-02-2013, 11:37 AM
I'll stay on plan today because I feel so much better when I do. (how do I forget that so easily when I am off plan?!)

08-04-2013, 07:03 PM
I will stay on plan today because despite what my frequent relapses into eating poorly may imply, my mind and body feel much better when I'm not overeating.

08-04-2013, 07:48 PM
Because despite working 50 hours this week and most days eating as I was working, and being exhausted from it all, I stuck to my plan, thus proving to myself that I really can do it.

08-04-2013, 07:56 PM
Because 6 years is too freaking long to be working on this!!

Because, in two days I'm seeing someone that I haven't seen in a very long time.

08-05-2013, 08:50 AM
I will stay on plan today because even though I can't give myself the world in a day, I can give myself a fighting chance.

08-05-2013, 11:01 AM
Because if I'm going to be here for another winter, I'd like to be able to wear one of my cute winter coats and not my 'fat coat'.

because I am 2 lbs away from the 50lbs loss mark :D

08-05-2013, 11:34 AM

Just because there is a tumultuous period at work and I have to handle an issue with an ex doesn't mean I give up on my personal goal of losing weight. I've got my priorities straight.

08-06-2013, 05:24 PM
Because I won't allow other people and their stress to control my choices.

08-06-2013, 10:28 PM

08-08-2013, 03:27 PM

08-10-2013, 12:46 PM
Because my body feels better when I stay on. Plan

Because I am down another pound and though I'm losing slowly, numbers are going down and that's all that matters.

08-10-2013, 10:14 PM
Because in 6 months I'll be so happy that I stuck with it.

08-12-2013, 12:30 PM
Because I just got back to the weight I was before the wedding I attended on the 3rd, and I'm going to another wedding this weekend.

Because I want to get to 199

08-12-2013, 01:53 PM

08-12-2013, 02:05 PM
because I am 1 lb away from the 50 loss mark !!!

08-12-2013, 05:15 PM

08-14-2013, 01:54 PM
because I hit my mini goal of "50 lbs lost" yesterday and can't wait to get into ONEderland already!!

08-15-2013, 10:37 AM
congrats nitrus29 on this big achievement!

The reason I want to stay on plan is I weighed in at 251.4 this morning and can't wait to be out of the 250s.

08-15-2013, 11:55 AM
Because I am 1.3 pounds away from 30 pounds lost!

08-15-2013, 12:14 PM
Because I want to get to Onederland!

08-15-2013, 01:44 PM
Because I am in the 260s finally! And I DON'T want to go up! And because once I lose 2.2lbs I will be the lowest weight I have been in 8 years. And because after I lose 4lbs I will be at my first goal of 50lbs lost!

08-15-2013, 01:49 PM
Because I've finally found the best diet to help curb my cravings for junk and I've been doing so well! Today marks Day 4!

08-15-2013, 02:47 PM
Because I still have hope that I've found the best healthy lifestyle for me. :)

Also because my mom is very overweight too and she is a diabetic. I struggle with weight the same way she does and I want her to see that even after all these years of struggling you can still change your life.

08-15-2013, 05:18 PM
Because losing 100 pounds is not that far away!!

08-15-2013, 05:36 PM
Because I have a whole weekend of temptation ahead of me, and I need a strong start if I want to avoid another 7.4 lb gain!

08-15-2013, 05:37 PM
Because losing 100 pounds is not that far away!!

Wow, not far at all! Get it girl!!!

08-16-2013, 09:23 AM
So many people close to a major milestone and we all know that the way to get there is to stick to plan!

This morning I weighed 201.0. I think that with a week of sticking totally on plan including exercise, I should be able to lose 1.1 and be in Onederland. However, if it takes 2 weeks I will still get there.

08-16-2013, 09:41 AM
3lbs away from my first mini goal!

08-16-2013, 10:16 AM
Because last time I weighed (I tend to weigh once or twice a week) I was at 201. I want to be out of the 200s the next time I step on the scale!!!

08-16-2013, 11:14 AM
Time2lose and everyone else getting close, I will be looking for you in onederland! No matter what u weight today, you CAN get there.
Today I will stay on plan because I don't want to ruin a good thing!!

08-16-2013, 12:12 PM
Because even though I'm up half a pound today, I know I've put in the work and I really didn't gain

08-16-2013, 12:19 PM
because I am getting closer and closer to my goal

08-18-2013, 09:08 PM
Because I am .4lbs away from the lowest I have been in 8 years.

Because I am 2.8lbs away from my first mini goal.

08-18-2013, 09:32 PM
Because I am so close to my first mini-goal! I can do it!

08-18-2013, 09:48 PM
Because I want to have "pounds lost" be more than "pounds to go"

08-18-2013, 10:28 PM
Because today, for the first time in almost a decade, I don't have to lose 100 pounds anymore. And now, every day when I get on the scale I can tell myself that I am at my lowest weight in 6 years.

08-19-2013, 03:11 AM
I'm staying on plan because today is 8 days binge free and I'm almost in the double digits. :)

Also because I don't feel like going off plan today. ^.^ Yay for not wanting to go off plan!

08-19-2013, 08:13 AM
Because after 5 days of terrible cramps due to TOM and not being on plan (and by that I mean not being able to exercise at all and barely eating), the plan is back on today.

08-19-2013, 08:22 PM
Because I am the lowest I have been in 8 years. Every pound lost is a SV. Every smaller size clothing is an NSV. I want to keep having victories!

08-20-2013, 09:31 AM
Because this is working!

08-20-2013, 09:34 AM
Because I am almost at my first mini goal!

08-20-2013, 04:18 PM
because I need to get out of the 2teens already!!!

08-20-2013, 08:17 PM
Because my fat rolls on my back are definitely getting smaller and I want them GONE

08-21-2013, 11:44 AM
Because this is working and I want to see how far I can go.

08-21-2013, 12:10 PM
As of today I am down from 313 (heaviest) to 276... 24lbs of that has been since the 8th July.

I have to get below 230 before I can look at getting pregnant

08-21-2013, 02:50 PM
Today I will stick to plan because I'm tired of being the way I am.

08-22-2013, 05:22 AM
Because I am DETERMINED to make my September 1st goal of 229.8

08-22-2013, 09:39 AM
Because my knee still bothers me and I want to see if losing another 10 pounds will make a difference.

08-22-2013, 10:22 AM
Because I am 1lb away from 50lbs lost!

08-22-2013, 07:29 PM
Because everything I do or don't eat makes a difference and 199.4 is nice, but 198 will be better!

08-22-2013, 07:38 PM
Because i'm still wearing maternity pants only because i'm too fat to fit into my prepregnancy clothes and to stubborn to by ew clothes, it easier and cheaper to lose the weight.

08-22-2013, 08:00 PM
Because September is in less than 2 weeks, and I have some adorable fall clothes that I haven't worn in 3 years.

08-22-2013, 08:17 PM
Because I am 1lb away from my first mini goal! And I will be there before my self set deadline as long as I stay OP.

08-22-2013, 11:34 PM
One day closer to being a lighter, healthier and faster me! I can't wait to not be carrying all this around!

08-23-2013, 10:20 AM
I'm .8 away from my first mini goal! I can see an even 265 if I stick to my plan!

08-23-2013, 10:32 AM
Because I've lost 7 pounds so far and for the fisft time I know I can and I WIL DO THIS.

08-23-2013, 11:36 AM
Because this is the first day of the first vacation in close to 10 years, and I don't want to come back bloated and full of regrets, I want to come back happy and full of great memories!

08-23-2013, 12:23 PM
Because yesterday marked 2 months of staying on plan.....this is ALWAYS when I fall off the wagon (I never get past the 2-3 month mark)

08-23-2013, 01:07 PM
Because I just spent another summer in an ugly swimsuit that I hate but it fit me, and next summer I want to wear something that I like.

Because the women who work at my local Avenue are terrible and I would like to not ever have to shop there again.

Because my bff had WLS this spring and she looks awesome, and I'm too selfish to let myself stay fat and have to stand next to her.

08-23-2013, 01:36 PM
because even after losing all this weight someone who I met for the first time told me I need to try weight watchers!! :(

08-23-2013, 02:13 PM
Why on Earth would somebody say that to someone they just met?! :hug:It'll be OK, they just have a big mouth and don't know how hard you've already worked. Someday you'll show 'em all! Then they'll be sorry! *lightningcrash* Muhahaha!

Sorry. I got stuck in mad scientist mode for a while there. I love your avatar, by the way.

08-23-2013, 05:03 PM
Because today I was 199.2 and I really want to see 199.0 as it is a liltte personal goal reached.

08-24-2013, 02:27 PM
I went over plan by 500 calories combined the past 2 days and I don't want to slow down my loss. After a few days on plan those calories won't matter at all.

08-25-2013, 02:29 PM
Because after losing 7 pounds this month, my clothes are starting to feel a bit loose and that's an encouraging sign.

08-25-2013, 08:22 PM
Because I reached my first goal today and I want to reach my second one before Thanksgiving.

08-27-2013, 04:08 PM
Because today I have lost 101 pounds and I don't want to turn back

08-27-2013, 07:42 PM
Because even though I'm stuck in the 250's, I've reminded myself that I haven't been here since MIDDLE SCHOOL! Perspective is everything.

08-27-2013, 09:53 PM
Because lunch was off plan, and dinner is my chance to make up for it.

08-27-2013, 09:55 PM
because even after losing all this weight someone who I met for the first time told me I need to try weight watchers!! :(

That person sounds like an a$$. BTW- You're doing awesome!

08-27-2013, 09:55 PM
Because I already made a ticker and I plan to be proud of it when I can post it ;)

08-28-2013, 08:35 AM
Because when I tried to order food, the restaurant didn't answer any of their numbers, and it's a sign from above that I should stop being lazy and make my own food (I ended up having chicken and a salad instead of unhealthy stuff) :)

08-28-2013, 09:49 AM
Because my plan is working.

08-28-2013, 11:21 AM
Because I'm less than 4 lbs from my 5%

08-28-2013, 02:55 PM
Because I'm finally below 230 and even AF didn't push me back over. I want to stay under and never see that # again.

08-29-2013, 12:54 PM
Because I'm wearing a hole in the thighs of my favorite jeans and I really don't want to buy a new pair of size 22s when I have several size 20s just waiting for me to fit back into them.

08-29-2013, 12:56 PM
Because I want to see what the 180s feel like.

08-29-2013, 02:20 PM
Because last night was very off plan, but today is a new day and I'm not gonna throw in the towel over it!

09-01-2013, 10:52 PM
