lol That's one reason why I'm curious. I don't have one.

I did find some I liked yesterday on another site like:

"nothing changes if nothing changes"
"You cannot wish yourself healthy."
"What you do in private shows in public"
"You're too darn cute to be this heavy!"

I have several:
~ Persistence and progress, not perfection is the goal
~ I will choose WHAT exercise I will do each day, not IF I will exercise.
~ Enjoy the journey
~ All things in moderation is fine, but some things need a LOT of moderation.

From Michael Pollan: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. (food= real food, not processed, chemical, artificial, etc.)

Also, whatever I eat is a choice. "I am choosing to eat this... I choose to eat a second portion... " Keeps me honest- food doesn't just jump into my mouth!

I guess I don't really have a mantra, but sometimes I have to get all Tough Love on my self and these are the things I say:

--Suck it up, Princess. (Not original to me, but I have this note posted on my elliptical, covering up the minutes readout)
--Pull on your big-girl panties and get busy (also not original to me, but this is what I tell myself when that whiney 2-year-old in my head starts in about wanting cookies or not wanting to exercise)

The one that has kept me going is 'When the going gets tough, the tough get going'. I consider myself to be tough!

I really love that one alot!

Just do it- is one I am liking. Because I can sit here and come up with a million excuses why not but I just need to do it. period. the end lol.

But my favorite is- Life is a journey not a destination.

It reminds me that I am doing this for my life and that each moment and choice matters here and now.
