    That's a good one to remember during plateaus, thank you :)

Hear hear! This is something most of us tend to forget - there is always someone who is worse off than you. Stay positive! Eventually we will all reach our goals.

    Wow, I just love this and from now I will try to remember this to help me to spur onward and downward, with knowing that my body is being loved by me. I have gained back 18# and have hated myself for it and it's time to change and believe in myself because I am learning better how to love my body and I'm worth being well taken care of and that means to get healthy, once and for all!

    I never really thought of this. I always see myself as the biggest person in the world. I thank you for reminding me that I am lucky to be the way I look and how far I have come. I am gratefull for all the good things I have achieved and I will think positive to continue to move forward. emoticon

    I always think of this when I start getting negative about my body. Some people would love to be where I'm at, so I should be thankful I'm starting with a smaller weight loss (about 25 lbs), instead of a larger one

    Keep up the good work!

    Thank you I needed the reminder of how far I've come.... to remember that this is a journey and that we all started at different distances from our goals.
