Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. -Elbert Hubbard

That's my favorite quote. It reminds me that no matter how hard life is, it doesn't entitle me to eat candy or skip working out.
It's not only about adding years to your life, but also about adding life to your years.

For weight loss, I like to keep it simple:

Eat less. Eat right. Move more.

For life in general, I have always liked the less serious:

"The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made." - Jean Giraudoux

very funny !!! Don't we all learn to fake it sometimes?

I think I can live by the weight loss motto. I think that really works.

My favorite inspirational quote has always been: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined."

For running inspiration, I recently adopted: "Trample the weak. Hurdle the dead." Very Happy

@Green:That has been my favorite motto too!
1st goal: 180's
2nd goal: 170's
3rd goal: 160's
4th goal: 150's
5th goal: BMI<25
6th goal:get off my acid reflux meds
7th goal: 155lbs. weight
8th goal:get off my b/p meds


When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

I revert to the classic comedies for a number of life's lessons. From Animal House: "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son." - Dean Vernon Wormer, Faber College

"You have one true obligation, that's to contribute your best to the world. Visualize what you want & think big. Don't be afraid of what others think. We're all deserving of our dreams. Some of us realize it, some don't. You're not doing anyone any favors by living small. Embrace these truths and step up...the world is waiting."

I like this one: There are two things I can control in life: (1) what I put in my mouth; and (2) how I treat my body.

Same as Green and Doozy65. "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels."

I love it.

On my fridge as a reminder.. - "if hunger is not the problem, then food is not the solution"...

Other day, someone here posted that working out is not optional...she/ he can't opt not to go to job...therefore, she/ he is wroking out - I LOVED IT AND whoever posted that - thank you! It got me out of bed twice in last two weeks!
Cheers,

I keep mine in my signature so I don't forget them Smile

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

Yes. When you get the FatSecret result, simply type over that with the one you want. Theirs is horribly generous and does not allow fast weight loss. Consider this one: http://caloriecount.about.com/... ...
