While reviewing my weight loss action plan, found a quote that always puts things in perspective:

The process of changing from what you are to what youwould like to become can be either arduous and frustrating OR easy and rewarding. The effort required for both paths is the same.- Stan Goldberg

When I had a bad night of binging, or a weekend of having too much fun, or just have put off going to the gym...this quote really impacts me--

Here are some of my favorites, I apologize if some have already been posted


Sacrifice is giving up something good for something better

You don’t drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there

Success is the sum of many small efforts

The road to success is lined with many tempting parking spaces

It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow

Better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness

Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor

A diamond with flaws is better than a common stone that is perfect

The only job where you start at the top is digging a hole

There’s always free cheese in mouse traps but the mice there ain’t happy

A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for

These are 3 of my favorites.

I am beautiful as I am. I am the shape that was gifted. My breasts are no longer perky and upright like when I was a teenager. My hips are wider than that of a fashion model's. For this I am glad, for these are the signs of a life lived. ~Cindy Olsen

“I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.” -Douglas Adams


..."I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humainized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"If you have to eat a frog, don't spend too much time looking at it. If you have to eat two frogs, eat the biggest one first."


I now think of my dreaded exercise workouts as frogs. I saw my trainer last night when I went for my exercise class, and said to him, "I'm here to eat my frog."
I've spent most of today avoiding my run on the treadmill. I was trying to take a nap, but all I could think of was, "Darn it, I haven't eaten my frog yet! Better get it over with."

I've done it.
I love this!!

I think it was:

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.
So true!

There's no such thing as an ugly woman, just a lazy one

This one always motivates me to work a little harder! (:

I'm a noob here! But I've been reading stuff from this site for quite some time now, and it's great. I really love this thread, so I thought I'd put in my two cents.

"If it's going to be tomorrow, it might as well be today. And if it is today, it could have been yesterday. If it WAS yesterday, then you'd be over and done with it."

Just a few personal favorites.

Don't squat with your spurs on.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Making it in life is kind of like busting broncos. You're going to get thrown a lot. The simple secret is to keep getting back on.

Go after life as if it's something that's got to be roped in a hurry before it gets away.

Your body is the baggage you must carry through life. The more excess the baggage, the shorter the trip!
