    I love it - clever, to the point, true.

    Also: it is adaptable. Ending a relationship is hard. Staying in a destructive relationship is hard. Trying to repair a relationship is hard.

    Studying at college/school is hard. Explaining to your parents you flunked out is hard. Living with boring, badly paid jobs is hard.

    The list could go on.

    This quote is so true it completely hit home it's hard looking at my self in the mirror when I'm over weight. When I feel good about myself my family is happier because I am. Plus setting a bad example for my son who is 11 and a bit over weight as well. - 3/15/2015   1:07:21 AM

    This is one of my favorite quotes. I have it taped to my desk at work. It's a good reminder that there is a downside to every choice, so I should pick the one with the most benefit. - 8/10/2012   12:25:13 PM

    As hard goes, I have not find maintenance hard as long
    as I stay focused on what I want. Hard was being fat
    Hard was avoiding mirrors and cameras. Hard was
    feeling out-of-shape. Hard was shopping for clothes.
    Hard was worrying about my health because of all the
    extra pounds I was carrying.

    Maintenance is wonderful and well worth all the effort of
    losing the weight. I love being thin and in shape. It is
    a glorious feeling I celebrate every day.

    Reading that quote, my first thought was "It's never been hard for me to stay overweight!". But on second thought, it IS hard to always be out of shape, always be sucking air going upstairs, having my cholesterol way too high, difficulty finding clothes that fit well, avoiding swimming parties and other fun physical activities, cringing at every photo I see of myself.... Ok, staying overweight is hard after all. I'll stick with the hard work of eating healthy and feeling great after I make myself go on a bike ride. I'll stick to the hard work that helps me wear a Large instead of a 2x. - 7/30/2012   2:46:59 PM
