Quote of the Day

This quote is a bit corny but it is definitely very true.  I know a lot of people who deprive themselves of so many things while they wait for their life to get better.  To be honest I've done it before too.  I have a few things in my closet that I refuse to give away because I dream of fitting into it again one day.  I also tell myself that I'll go shopping for (fill in the blank) after I lose a certain amount of weight or I fit into a certain size.

I have struggled with my weight since I was a small child so I know that any amount of weight that I lose is only going to be a temporary fix.  I am going to have to continue to exercise and watch what I eat (and the portions of the food) in order for me to maintain my weight.
Realistically speaking, change does not happen overnight and it's pointless (and potentially mentally damaging) for me to deprive myself of a new outfit because I am not physically where I want to be.  This does not mean that I should allow myself to indulge in food, but I do think that it's okay for me to reward myself occasionally during my weight loss journey.

What do you think?
