Well....I have no clue where I am at this week. I haven't weighed myself. I'm debating back and forth between weighing myself tomorrow or waiting until Saturday. I've eaten a whole lot of food!!!! Those 35 flex points have been LONG GONE. I've earned 60 activity points....I've only got 25 of those left...yikes! That's a whole lot of eating!

But I'm here! Today someone in a group that I am part of asked for quotes or things that we think and keep in our heads to help us in our every day are some that I came up with.

1. The old Army (I think it was army) jingle. "Be all that you can be" So perfect because so many times we DON'T live up to our potential!!!!

2. The nike slogan recently has hit me. "JUST DO IT" We sit back and let our worries and our self doubts hold us back. Why? What is the worst that is going to happen???? Just do it. No holds barred!

3. The only failure is not trying and/or giving up

4. weight loss related:
a. No food tastes as good as thin feels.
b. No exercise hurts more than fat does.

5. LIVE BIG! I got this one from my brother when my grandmother passed away a few years back. He said "she lived big" And it was true. My grandmother did what made her happy. She did stuff for a laugh and to make herself and others around her happy. She was generous to a fault but she lived big. She didn't do things in halves...she did them the whole way! She lived her life like everyday could be her last!

I'm a "just do it" fan. So easy to say, but sometimes so hard to do. And "do the next right thing"....small steps.

PS...I never could use my activity points, I'd always're lucky if you're able to use them and lose too.

I like that "be all that you can be"! It says it all :)

I like "live big". Your Grandma sounds like she was a neat lady! I also like "no exercise hurts worse than fat does". Because fat really does so many ways.

I LOVE number 3! Thank you for the kind words of support! I AM going to succeed at loosing weight. I know I'm going to have ups and downs.

my mantra lately has been...

Desire More, Fear Less!

I say it to myself over and over again.

Operation Give a Sh*T says it all too ;-)

Yes, just do it works. I walked into the gym the other day not feeling like working out when someone looked at me and said JUST GET IT DONE. That has helped me through my workouts...

I could be the one writing your post. I always use up my 35 points on the weekend. Wish I didn't need to eat so much.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I appreciate readers taking the time to comment. It validates some of the stuff that goes around in my brain.

Motivational quotes help me in so many ways... keep them near by.
