Inspirational Quotes/Phrases.
I'm working on an inspiration/motivation collage/wall thing. I'm going to fill it with pictures of things I want - awesome shoes, to dance, babies, pretty dresses, stuff like that - but I want to put some words on there too. So far I'm thinking "Don't dream it, be it" from Rocky Horror. But I was wondering if you had any suggestions for other phrases/quotes that could work.

Or, you know, just inspire. :)

"If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up"

"Suck it up and someday you won't have to suck it in"

"When you feel like quitting think about why you started"

"I'm not there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday"

I have some on my kitchen so when I dive in I stay on plan :) Good luck!

How about that one about dancing in the rain? Something like "don't wait for the rain to stop, learn to dance in the rain". But it's better than that.

If I'm honest, the best ones are what other people say about me, sometimes negative, sometimes positive.

My favorite at the moment has to be the thinnest, fittest guy at work. This guy runs 10 miles to work most days and eats salad for lunch. We get on very well and discuss what's in the salad bar at work every day. He's my go-to nutrtionist. And he also gives me tips on running (apparently a one percent incline on a treadmill is a good way to simulate running for real outside).

Anyway, a few weeks ago at a work happy hour I overhead him (pretended not to notice) talking about me and saying to another colleague, "I know, but I could not have done that from where he was coming from."

I have been pretty thrilled about that.

Well, there's the phrase my son is fond of telling me:

"It's a WORK-out, not a play-out"

And, there's the one I tell myself. The background to this one is that I was slim when I was younger and I've put weight on over the years. So, I like to think:

"What goes up must come down" ! :)

I LOVE these!!! :) I sing the Dory quote to myself quite often! LOL!!

I also tell myself "Don't GIVE up....GET up!" on days I'm really having a hard time! :D

"You've come too far to be controlled by a cookie" ~ I read that on 3FC somewhere. Anyone want to claim it?

I have an entire board on Pinterest of inspiring quotes. This is the only one that I think fits for weight loss/fitness.

Love yourself first, and everything else falls into place. - Lucille Ball.

"I'm stronger than my challenges and my challenges are making me stronger." (from Pinterest)

"When I exercise, I wear all black. It's a funeral for my fat." (Saw that here on 3FC)

The quotes I live by are in my signature. Here's a couple more:

"Those who argue for their limitations generally get to keep them."

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

Also, I've made inspirational boards, I have a couple. It helps me to make them separate though. I made one for weightloss/health, and one for happiness/goals. They're both in my walk-in closet, just for me.

This is alittle long.. but I have this taped to my mirror in my bathroom:

YOU are destined to succeed! There's a recipe for success: start with a dream, add drive and a dash (or more) of patience and never, ever leave out hope. You've got all the ingredients inside you. There is NO stopping you now!

I find wonderful words of wisdom in (don't laugh) Woman's World magazine... the one with the new miracle diet every week. But their clippings of encouragement are just awesome!
