Love this quote - thanks for sharing

Here are some of my favorites:

Strength is the ability to break a chocolate into four pieces with your bare hands and then eat just one of those pieces. - Unknown

Here's to the girls who stay strong, even when they have every right to break down. - Unknown

Run from bills, run from mortgages,
run from your work, run from routine,
run from your fears, run from your worries,
run from relationships, run from committments,
run from handicaps, run from disadvantages,
run from your wants, run from needs,
run from this, run from that, run
run, run, run, run
run run
run. -cheasy but it was on a Nike ad

"You have been critizing yourself for years and it hasn't worked.
Try approving of yourself and see what happens." -Louise L. Hay

Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down. -Unknown

I'm not getting fit so some guy will love me.
I'm not getting fit so people can stare at me in a bikini.
I'm not getting fit for the compliments.
I'm getting fit so I can be healthy. So I can feel good about myself.
So I can be proud and say, "My hard work and perserverane really paid off."
So I can live a long and healthy life.
That's why I am getting fit for ME. -Unknown

Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit. -Unknown

One of my favorites: No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch. -Unknown

We're all in the same game. Just different levels. Dealing with the same ****, just different devils. - Unknown

A couple more running ones:
Whether it's 10 miles or one, you will NEVER regret lacing up those running shoes and going outside. - Unknown

I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't run, what they would give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I run harder for them. I know they would do the same for me. -Unknown

"Your body is the baggage you must carry for life. Having excess baggage, the shorter the trip!" - evilwoman

This one made me think of the baggage fees they charge now, so not only shorter the trip, but the excess baggage will cost you more!

I love quotes, I could read them all night...but I shouldn't...

Well, this isn't so much a quote as it is a thought.....when I am about to eat something that I know is bad for me and I'm in the middle of that moment of temptation, I ask myself: "Will you regret passing this up by tomorrow? Will you look back and wish you had eaten it?"

Clearly the answer is always "no". It reminds me that outside of that moment is the future, and my future self is always happy that my present self has made a good choice.

I thought this thread was really worth resurrecting. Take the time to read. One quote was all I needed to prevent a binge.

This is a great thread!

So, this first one I got from a beloved family member and I think it is so true in terms of weight loss:

"Life is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration!"

This one I learned in grammar school,

"The only difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is the way that use them."

I adore quotes and I hope you like those.

Well THE phrase that set me on a successful weight loss journey of 100 lbs (after being overweight and never trying to lose the weight for 17 yrs) was Albert Einsteins:
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"

That alone was an epiphany (DUH) and a light bulb going off in my head and i got the courage to change my eating habits.

Right now as i am in maintenance, someone posted on 3FC:
"I am not a victim!"

So i'll pull that one out and tell myself that if i want to eat something junky on my none cheat day and am feeling rather sorry for myself or if i want to eat and am not truly hungry

I saw this one the other day and it really relates to my journey.
"This is not about going back. This is about your life being ahead of you and you run at it!! Because you never know how far you can run UNLESS YOU RUN!!"

I really liked a couple of these quotes. I am going to try to read something in this website once a day. I keep looking for a quick, easy way to lose weight and keep it off and while I hold out hope for this in the future I don't know of any solution that fits these criteria now. So, that is my short term goal, just today on this website and grateful for all the posts.
