My favorite quote (Firecracker team)

"Focus on results, you will never change. Focus on change and you will get results." -Jack Dixon

I am one of those people that I either like a quote or I don't. I found this quote about 6 months after I joined spark and it just completely spoke to me b/c it basically sums up what you need to do. When you just do the changes you need to do and do the healthy eating and the proper exercising the results will come naturally. If you just focus on the results and weigh yourself constantly and get freaked out when you don't see the results then the changes you want to happen won't. I just really like the way the quote was stated and I have to remind myself every now and then not to focus on the results..just focus on the changes you want to make and be healthy and happy!

I have seen several quotes on spark that I like but can't think right now what they are. And I really like the campaign Nike did about the shoulders, knees, thighs and butt. I have those on my motivational collage. Bascially they are about not being "skinny." Be strong and sexy! Have's ok. It's sexy b/c it's healthy and you look strong!

That's it for now. I have the first season of True Blood waiting for me to watch!

    The best and most profound quotes seem to be ones that are simply said but oh, so true. This is one of them- a great one to keep as a daily mantra! It totally makes sense and is one to always remember! Thanks so much for sharing it!

    What a true statement if I ever heard one. I think that is why I get "stuck" right before going down to a new number, like right now I am stuck right around 140's. I change my thinking to the results. I want to get under 140. I should just be focusing on keeping with the changes, and let the results tag along. Thanks for the reminder.
