    "Believe in yourself and all that you are, know that there is something inside you that is bigger than any obstacle." - Christian D Larrson

    "Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours" - Swedish Proverb

    "Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it's the courage to continue that counts" - Winston Churchill

    "Our Greatest Glory is not in never failing; it is in rising every time we fail" - Confucious



    And finally a song which is soooo inspirational to me - I listen to it in the gym everyday and on bad days (especially from 2 mins 8secs!!):

    YouTube - Walk on the water by Britt Nicole (With lyrics)

    Anyone else got any to share?

    I dont see why? LOL People have read it, 1 person has even thanked you for it. My problem is i cant read the top 2 because they're too bright.

    One of my faves is below, its relevent to me because my nan died of obesicty! loved her food to much i guess!:
    "One should eat to live, not live to eat."

    Just when I read it back I felt like a wally for being all sentimental!

    I'll leave it - but I'll make the top two darker!

    Thanks for that song Phill - I love songs with good lyrics. I'm not a huge fan of musical tracks, but the lyrics are great!

    If you're not fond of sappy songs - how about this one?

    YouTube - Eminem - Not Afraid

    Warning: Explicit lyrics!

    Shabba - I really like that quote. So sorry to hear about your gran, but I bet she's really proud of you for taking your weight in your own hands now.

    I also heard someone say this last week:

    "Eat your food, don't let your food eat you"

    Quite liked that!

    the top one is very good :) It is a bit soppy but good when your feeling down!

    My gran would be proud, she was trying to lose the weight but it was too late :( I dont want the same for my and my little madam so its a good starting point!;)

    Mine is sort of relevant to weight loss although its context is nowt to do with it:

    "Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it"

    I suppose its the more eloquent version of:

    "If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got".

    Great thread!
    The two that spring to mind (not really weightloss though)

    Success rests in having the courage & endurance & above all the will to become the person you are however peculiar that may be.

    How other people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours. - I really should remember that one!

    I love this one! The idea of embracing being 'peculiar' is a great one. I tried being normal once, worst five mins of my life!!!! - that's a quote too!

    Morning all, big hugs and go get 'em today x
