Hey Pam2 - perhaps not the most obvious one, but kind of does it for me:

"If you're going through hell, keep going." - Winston Churchill
Tracy

I actually have a body like Cindy Crawford, I just keep it well covered to protect it!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

♥ I am the captain of my soul ♥


Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.

Here are a few of my all-time favorites:

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Courage isn't having the strength to go on - it is going on when you don't have strength.”
― Napoleon Bonaparte

“You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down”
― Charles Chaplin

“It's not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power!”
― Robert Kiyosaki

"The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bulls##t story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it."
— Jordan Belfort

"I said 'Somebody should do something about that.' Then I realized I am somebody."
— Lily Tomlin

“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”
― Gautama Buddha

Hi Pam,
For motivation, I've taken to watching past seasons of "Biggest Loser" on HULU. Often I just fast forward to the end. I find it very motivational to see the transformation in the person voted out each episode.

Naturally, the season finale is always a motivational kick as well. Sadly though, the bulk of the show is empty calories, with little real guidance on diet and exercise technique.
