"He has the right to criticize who has the heart to help." ~~ Abraham Lincoln

So true! More empathy and hands-on support and clearly expressed appreciation helps all of us. Less criticism & more helping is a good thing no matter what the topic.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

There's one I love about not doing something because of the time it will take because the time will pass anyway. :) Very weight loss-appropriate! And just health goal appropriate.
