"A man who wants to do something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse."

I like this quote because I always find that excuses are the biggest reason people have trouble losing weight and sticking to their goals.

I just finished a book by Kim Bensen called Finally Thin!. She had inspiritional qoutes throughout the book, which was about her weight loss. A couple that I liked are:

"A moment on the lips, a long time on the hips."

"You don't have to do this FOREVER. You just have to do this for TODAY. Everyday."

I plan on posting these somewhere in my house as a reminder of what I have to do.



You don't have to do this FOREVER. You just have to do this for TODAY. Everyday. -- Kim Bensen, from her book Finally Thin!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. -- Jim Ryun

The goal is learning how to "do life" without using food to manage it. --Kim Bensen

Okay, I just saw this quote and wanted to share it with everyone. Do you have a quote to share?

"I never failed once. It just happened to be a 20001-step process." -- Thomas A. Edison

"A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."

-- Eleanor Roosevelt
