I am really into quotes. Sometime the right one can pump me up. I though it would be fun to share a couple of my favorites.

“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”
-Beverly Sills

and one I saw today of fb (posted on Michael Jordan's birthday)

“Limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.” - Michael Jordan

I live by this one. Every time I think about cheating I remember what it was like to be 210lbs and 23% bodyfat.

Funny- I've always hated this quote. Then again, I stay away from anything that focuses on "thin" or "skinny." You don't diet yourself healthy!

Yes you do. If I were morbidly obese, ran 5 miles a day, and ate 4000 calories of crap I would be much less healthy than if I ate 2000 calories of whole unprocessed foods and did free weights three times a week for 30 minutes.

I think Nat just means that the goal shouldn't be "skinny" - it should be "healthy" or "fit"... There are plenty of skinny people in the world that are not healthy just because they have a high metabolism or 'good' genes. Skinny shouldn't be the main focus.. so maybe the quote should say "Nothing tastes as good as fitness feels"... but it just doesn't have the same ring to it.. Smile

I'm quite sure Dr. King didn't mean weight loss, however, I choose to think of his words with that in mind. See sig.
"Diet" is a four-letter word.

Not weight loss related, but I LOVE this one:

"Only two things are infinite: The Universe and human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the universe."
- Albert Einstein.

...and learning that Kate Moss is the owner of the "nothing tastes..." quote, I felt compelled to take it off my signature. I can't stand her. Smile

"Losing weight is never about eating as little as possible"
- Kingkeld.
"You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.
― Eleanor Roosevelt
"Do. Or do not. There is no trying."
- Master Yoda.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
