F. Scott Fitzgerald : "Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat."

Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats." -Amos Bronson Alcott

This can apply to weight loss, but it's not really about motivation, but more of philosophy on life:

"Every time you wake up and ask yourself, "What good things am I going to do today?", remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it."
Indian proverb

It's not whether you get knocked down. It's whether you get up again.

If you want it, you'll find a way. If you don't ... you'll find an excuse.

Anything worth having is worth working for!

As much as I hate the structure of the sentence (ugh, it ends with a preposition! Can you tell I'm a technical editor/writer? ), I love the message.

Build A Bridge... And Get Over It... If I've messed up, fallen short of my healthy eating, slacked off on my exercise instead of beating myself up over it.. I build a bridge.. lol

The ones in my signature.

"Never go back, only go forward."

I don't know if it counts as a quote, but when I'm working out I frequently tell myself I can do anything for 1 minute when I'm trying to push myself to go just a little bit harder.
