Default One Reason You Will 'Be Good' Today

Hi everyone!

I'm new to this part of the site. I have about 10lbs to lose, maybe a bit more depending on what I look like after 10lbs!

I have stolen this thread idea from the 100lbs forum. I think it's a good idea!

My reason is:

1. Despite having a mini binge (eating 2 muffins when I am meant to be cutting out sugar), my plan seems to be working. I've just sneaked a peek on the scales and I am 154 (2lbs down). Now I am going to stop my ridiculous eating of muffins, go for a run and choose salad when I go out for dinner later!

Claire

Welcome Claire! I love this "stolen" idea!

My reason is:
The scale is finally working it's way back down after it jumped up when I started working out this week. I want to be 100% on plan so I can continue that trend and stop sabotaging myself with extra snacks, just because I worked out.

My reason is: The scale finally went down again, and although it's back up today it's also the first day of TOM so I want to kick butt and see a great whoosh by the end of the week!

Today my reason is I just bet my boyfriend I could give up all chocolate (except 25g of dark chocolate a day), sweets, fruit yogurts (the type with tonnes of sugar), cake, Diet Coke (ahhhh I consume the stuff like water) and alcohol when i'm at home alone (empty calories apparently). If i fail I have to buy him dinner every time. We're seeing if I can last until 21st July.

It'll be an expensive chocolate bar if I succumb!

I think I have someone to look and feel good for again. I know that I should be doing everything for myself and I am. But, knowing that I'm not the only one makes the biggest difference for me. It may not even that I'm doing this to look good for them, I'm just overall happy and when I'm happy with things I naturally take much better care of myself. I only wish that I got on track and stayed on it a loooong time ago.

Because I want to keep fitting into into these smaller clothes.

Because I am going out of town soon and I can use some wiggle room.

Because I really don't need all that junk anyway, and it's really not worth it.

My reason for today:

I managed yesterday without any of the things I banned and it wasn't that hard (beginner's luck?!) so why break a day old habit? :-)

Because i have been moaning about these last 10 pounds for about 4 years and it is time to get the monkey off my back!
And because I will feel happier to have accomplished staying on track, much happier than a beer or an ice-cream will make me :-)
Also, because I CAN stay on track and I WILL!!!

I'm being good today because I finally saw results today. I'm down to 137.2 from 140.2 yesterday. I don't want to go back up, and I know that I feel so good when I am good!
