if you've seen my buddyslim page then you have probably already read my favorite quotes (as they are posted nice and big all over it lol) but here are a few of my absolute favorites:

"Rather the pain of dicipline, than the pain of regret"
- which is why I workout everyday, why I walk when it's raining, why I push through a dvd when my quad hurts from yesterday's workout--- I'd rather suck up that pain, and know I'M STRONG and unstoppable, than to have to weigh in on Friday and think about how much better I could have done and what a difference it COULD have made, and how I didn't own every day that week, how I lost time... more time, on top of all the years I've wasted already being fat.


"No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself"
- I've lost "friends", I get weird looks, somedays I hurt, somedays I cry, I don't "cheat", I don't indulge in things that won't help me lose weight, whether that be junk food, drinking, going out with friends to applebees, etc... but I want to be in control. I want to OWN my life, be the person I want to be, a person that I'm PROUD to be, inside and out, and no matter what the cost... it's worth it.


and my person motto:


"You must show no mercy, nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you. For your greatness will silence them all"
- We've all felt judgemental stares from strangers and even family. People will ask me about my diet + exercise regimen and then cristisize me: "oh, you're losing weight much too fast, that's not healthy" and I can only imagine the things said behind my back. Along with all the people who probably think I can't do it and can't be more than this and that I will break (like Viv's "friend" who tried to break her by taking her to buffet). I show no mercy, I pay no mind, I will do it, I AM doing it and in the end, my greatness will silence them all. which is why I also realllly love a lyric from one of Eminem's song which is:


"Imma be what I set out to be, without a doubt, undoubtably and all those who look down on me-- I'm tearin' down your balcony!!"


And the quote that that is my tagline and actually makes me tear up with hope, by my all time favorite author + philosopher, Ayn Rand:

"Train like an athlete. Eat like a nutritionist."

"Suffer the pain of discipline, or suffer the pain of regret."

"I make time. Not excuses."

"Obsessed is a word used by the LAZY to decribe the DEDICATED"

I didn't have a quote already, but I focus a lot on self-mastery. If I can practice making better decisions for myself, pushing beyond my immediate desire for gratification, I feel stronger. So I looked up self-mastery and found some good ones!

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they dont have any. Alice Walker

Its not that some people have willpower and some dont. Its that some people are ready to change and others are not. James Gordon

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do. Johann von Goethe



Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. Lao-tzu

My fave is not just for food, but I apply it to everything "You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it"

Kama is ready to take it all the way!

I can really eat that if I want... I just won't today.

One of my favorites is from a fortune cookie. It is something like "You cannot conquer if you do not fight".

Some of my favorites are

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

I fill all physical appetites in physically healthy ways
One day at a time

This junk food I want to eat today will not mean anything to me tomorrow but being healthy will

I eat to live not live to eat

It doesnt get easier, I just get stronger.

I can do anything I put my mind to

If you can dream it you can do it

"I'll sing for the ones who've fallen I'll sing when there's nothing left to lose. I know they're your dreams too. And I'll sing it all for you."

I am going to write down my favorite affrimations or inspirational qoutes on a flash card then carry it around with me everywhere I go. I figure it's time to get as mentally in this as I can. I figured maybe you all would like to share some quotes and sayings that help support you through weightloss.
Also actitivties you do like picturing yourself doing stuff at a healthy weight and all that jazz. This can be our daily inspiration.

"I'll sing for the ones who've fallen I'll sing when there's nothing left to lose. I know they're your dreams too. And I'll sing it all for you."
