Quote of the Day

This quote really isn't catchy or anything, but I like it.  I like it because it is simple and it is a fact.  I often feel this way when I think about my weight loss journey.  Sometimes I wonder what is the point because my goal weight appears to be so far away.  Then I'll decide to jump on the scale, mostly out of curiosity, and guess what.....I find that I have lost weight!

Hiccups that appear to occur while we are driving down the road of life don't always symbolize a setback.  Keep moving, work hard, and the results will come.

Bonus Quote:
A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.

Quote of the Day

Welcome 2012!  It's 3 days into the new year and I feel slightly overwhelmed focusing on all of the things that I want to do, that I shouldn't be doing, and what I am doing (sound's crazy right?!?).

One of the reasons why people look forward to the new year is because it symbolizes a fresh slate- an opportunity to start over and do better.  We all know someone (or maybe even ourself) who begins January with so much steam only to mentally run out of gas as the weeks fly by.

Today's quote is short and simple.  Whether it is in reference to love, relationships, work, or weight loss- "Don't let your past steal your future- move on."  The longer that we focus on the negatives, the longer that our success becomes delayed.
