Sometimes NSV's(non-scale victories) are a good way to keep being motivated.

Trying hard to start again - I've been somewhat successful in the past but surgeries, unwanted move and plain meanness I've ballooned back up. I really don't want to go on meds for high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Eek.

So my goal is to loss 10 pounds by Nov 2nd and 25 pounds by my birthday in February.

Don't quit is easy to say and hard to do.

And the corollary:
If nothing changes, nothing changes.

~ Randy Pausch

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."
~ Art Turock

A person told me once a quote that has also seemed powerful to me.

"If you always do, what you always did, you will always get what you always got!!"

Her mom told her that, and she didn't know where she heard it, but I loved it! If you always do the same thing, you won't grow, you won't learn and you will never make a difference. Change one thing today, then tomorrow and next month, your life could be going in a better direction! You are the only one who can make that difference!

“What you eat in private will show up in public.” ~Unknown
“Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork.” ~English Proverb
“Don’t eat anything your great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.” ~Michael Pollan
