I'm determined to reach my goal weight and maintain by creating and continuing healthy eating and exercise habits for the rest of my life. Everyone wants the outcome, but in order to be motivated to work towards it, day in and day out, you have to learn to get some enjoyment out of the process.

"Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again." -Richard Branson

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

“There comes a certain point in life when you have to stop blaming other people for how you feel or the misfortunes in your life. You can’t go through life obsessing about what might have been.”
- Hugh Jackman

"True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united." - Wilhelm von Humboldt

My DH can be both an enabler and a saboteur. When I'm weak he encourages my weakness and when I'm strong he offers temptation of the most irresistible kinds.
