"Sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth, but because we finally realize our own." (www.livelifehappy.com)

Sometimes we are not strong enough to face our temptations. There is no shame in walking away. (in this case it is encouraged)

Been waiting for motivation? Se your own motivation. Run when you don't want to, eat a bowl of fruit when you want a bag of chips, and love your body when you look in the mirror. You're the only one holding you back. Now get out there!

One of our members suggested we have a thread where people can stop in and leave inspirational quotes and messages for each other. It's a great idea, so here it is!

Use this thread when you're having that extra hard day and need a kick in the behind to get rid of the lazies. Or stop in here when you think you've done enough ad realize you can do even more!

Here's a quote to start us off:

"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can." (Author Unknown)
