Talking Quotes that inspire and motivate

I got this idea from another forum...it was so successful they made it into a sticky. I thought we could all write down our favorite quotes that motivate and inspire through out this journey. Mine is super simple, but so, so true.

"Failing to plan, is planning on failure."

What is your favorite quote or saying???

Mine has always been "Do not trade what you want most for what you want right now".

I like this one - "Nothing tastes as good as being thin FEELS"

And yes sometimes I have to repeat it over and over again in my mind. Or out loud.

I AM A GODESS! I AM WORTH IT!
I now walk into a room and think "Do these people like me?" I wish to someday walk into a room and think "Do I like these people?"

(this would be an awesome sticky thread. Some deays you need these kinds of encouraging, motivating words and it can be difficult to tell them to yourselfe.)

WOW Tracey - I REALLY like that qoute!!

My favorites today are:

If you REALLY want to loose, you'll find a way and if you don't want to, you'll find an excuse ~ it is all up to you.

Don't wail on the scale if you cheat when you eat!

Exercise and eating healthy is not a punishment; it is a gift to yourself.
