Since my weight loss is so slow I can really identify with this one:

No matter how SLOW you go, you are still lapping everyone on the couch.

I helps me feel successful in what I do.

This one pretty well sums it up for me : Stop WISHING for it - start WORKING for it.

I also liked Bebarb149 quote : "If You're Tired of Starting Over,
Stop Giving Up".

First let me say because of this challenge I am finding so many more aspects to this Spark site than I ever dreamed we're here, like the motivational quotes and the daily quiz. Thank you!
I found two quotes that I really liked:

Life begins outside your comfort zone
You are one workout away from a good mood


Life begins outside your comfort zone

Faith does not make things easy.........it makes them possible!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

"Those who succeed are the ones who look in the mirror and see no change, but continue anyway, knowing they'll get there in time." - Sparkpeople

I love this quote and will add it to my signature. It speaks to me about my persistence in this weight loss journey. There are many times I don't see obvious changes, i.e. the scale or measurements, but when I look at other things I see that I am making progress. I track the good things I accomplish each day. The positive steps I am taking on my journey and that keeps me motivated, not the results on the sacle. The scale is a fickle mistress.

I like "Remember why you started". It is easy to forget why you started this lifestyle change. It was to get healthy. I have to remind myself of this everyday. I have really enjoyed this challenge. Thanks for do it.

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequte
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
We ask ourselves
Who mam I to be brilliant,gorgeous,talented, and fabulous.........
Actually............Who are you not to be?
We are born to make manifest the Glory of Goid that is within us
And as we let our own light shine
We unconsously give other people the permission to do the same.

Adults call it "Workiing Out". Kids call it "Playing". I love this one, since my idea of good exercise is hiking in the mountains or signing up for AcroYoga. My blood pressure has been down for the last few weeks, too!
