Indygirl's words of wisdom: (Indyisms) Quotes by Beth Donovan

Don't wait to be thin to act thin. Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now. ~Indygirl

D.A.S. Dress the part. Act the part. Suck it up. ~Indygirl (my first mantra)

Aim for better every day, never perfect right away. ~Indygirl

I remember giving up my choices. That's actually what living an unhealthy life is about. ~Indygirl

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl (first spoken by me at the 2009 Spark Your Life convention)

One slice of pizza is always going to have less calories than two. ~Indygirl

Never treat your body like a garbage disposal for leftovers. ~Indygirl

If you think 'I may as well', then change it to 'I may as well not'. ~Indygirl

Lose, maintain, just don't gain. ~Indygirl

Tea and sympathy, not cake and apathy. ~Indygirl

Baby steps. Leaping in wears you out. Then you quit. ~Indygirl

You don't have to be perfect you just have to stick with it. ~Indygirl

Dream big, step small, and keep going. ~Indygirl

Look at weight regain like a bad haircut, it's temporary and will fix itself with proper care and maintenance. ~Indygirl

That which I cannot do now is my aspiration, not my defeat. ~Indygirl

Don't put your thoughts toward what might have been, put your energy into what is possible. ~Indygirl

Having a bad day is like getting a flat tire. You fix it and get back on the road; you don't have a tantrum & go around popping holes in the other 3 tires! ~Indygirl

When you make a wrong turn on the road, your GPS does not go berserk, berate you and drive you off a cliff. It calmly tells you to get back on track. ~Indygirl

Plateaus only SEEM to last forever, but if you kick and stomp and go at them, they crash to the ground and you can dance on their dirt! ~Indygirl

Find your inner CAUSE that requires a higher fitness level. THAT will be your rock. ~Indygirl

The point is that there is always something you can do if you think out of the box. In fact, throw the box away. ~Indygirl

Don't binge on something just to keep yourself from binging on it later or to get it out of the house. That's silly. ~Indygirl (guilty of it)

I lost my weight choice by choice. ~Indygirl

Remember to fill your life, not your stomach. ~Indygirl

Get healthy and fit like it's your career. ~Indygirl

Forget what negative/ energy drainers say and go the other way. ~Indygirl

Eat right, not light. ~Indygirl

Push yourself gently in the right direction, but don't push so hard that you push yourself down. ~Indygirl

Change your life and you change your weight, not the other way around. ~Indygirl

To get fat unglued, eat healthier food. ~Indygirl
