HotWings, I love that quote! It rings so true for me; if I keep up my old habits, how can I expect any change in myself?

I just finished reading Walden by Thoreau and found a few quotes I really enjoyed:

"I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

I can't find the person's signature right now, but it caught my eye when browsing before I registered and really stuck with me.

I think it was:

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.

Soyrizo -- I believe that quote is in "yoyodieterinvegas" ' signature. And I agree, I like it, too. Another one I like is nelie's:
"Eat/exercise for the body you want, not the body you have." I always kept that in mind while losing weight.

Thumbs up Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Oh my gosh, I was sooooo close to bingeing out. I came close several times tonight, BUT, just about 10 minutes ago I was feeling desperate so I logged on and thought I might find salvation and I have by all your inspiring, funny and honest quotes. Amazingly I don't even really feel hungry at the moment. Not voraciously anyway I am going to go to bed and feeling good that I overcame another day of resisting temptation, rather than going to bed chastising myself for giving in and horking out. Thank you everyone!

I saw this same signature yesterday and of all the quotes on here this one struck me as the one I could use in my life. It can be shortened to a mantra- Pick your hard.

Love this thread. My quote is in my signature.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth

Yupp, definitely!! I used to dislike this quote because it always seemed a bit "pro ana" to me.

I am now lost about 25lb and am experiencing for myself that the quote holds true. When I want too much of a bad thing I remember what it was like to have as much as I wanted but be large and miserable about it.

Julibee, I LOVE these quotes. Especially the first one. Thanks so much for posting them! I am going to have to get Walden out of the library and read it again.

Okay call me cheesy, but I just read Jack LaLanne's new book (you know, the juicer guy), called "Live Young Forever." It's absolutely the most inspirational and motivational book I've read!
Here are some of my favorite Jack LaLanne quotes:

"You have got to take care of the most important person in the world, YOU!"

"Living is a pain in the backside, because you have to work at it. Dying, now that's easy."

"You eat everyday, you sleep everyday, and your body was made to exercise everyday."

"Would you get your dog up in the morning and give him a cup of coffee, a cigarette and a doughnut?"

"Exercise is king and diet is queen; put them together and you've got an empire."

It's always really hard for me to get back on track if I eat something I shouldn't. But, remembering this quote really helps me:

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there. -Anonymous

here are a few of my favs:

"Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit."

Napolean Hill

"When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal. "

Napolean Hill

"Every failure carries with it the Seed of an equivalent or greater Benefit."
Napoleon Hill

"We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are."
Adelle Davis

"Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness."
Hippocrates

"Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not!"

I LOVE this quote. I will have to remember this one whenever I am feeling down. Thanks for posting.

Hannah, love the last quote in your signature. Oh so true.

Gracie, love the Napoleon Hill quotes, especially the first. I find that to be very true in my experience.

Wow, What a great thread. Some Quotes that have helped me are:

"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."

"No one said you had to lose weight in a day...you will lose weight with ONE STRONG 'NO' AT A TIME."

"You cannot photoshop your real life, nor can the celebrities. They are the ones who are lying and in denial, not us."
