    I don't know if this has been posted yet or not but THE most important quote I've come across in my weight loss journey is: "Consistency is EVERYTHING." This has proven to be SO true. Also, "Eat right to lose weight. Exercise to gain muscle." MFP has proven to be incredibly inspiring and so, so helpful in my journey.

    Someone telling me "You have to learn to walk before you can fly." was what got me to face my fear and go into the gym. I repeat it to myself whenever I feel like I'm not making progress as fast as I want.

    "There is no end to this journey." When this truly hit home, it really helped to "remove the urgency" of losing this weight overnight. I will never reach a day where I am at goal weight, "cured" and able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want and still maintain. At this moment I am learning and living a new way of life, treating myself along the way and plan on continuing this way of life indefinitely.

    I really like this. I like how you pointed out that it helped you "remove the urgency" of losing weight. Because you are so right. When you get to your goal weight you still have to keep working to keep yourself healthy! This will help me "forgive myself" when I have had a bad day or bad week! And to just keep moving forward even if I fall off for a few days.

    Love this stream.

    I have lots, but the one I tend to repeat regularly..."What doesn't challenge you doesn't change you".

    Also with reference to the "losing weight is hard" quote, I also read one that said "losing weight isn't hard, losing a loved one is hard, child birth is hard, but losing weight isn't hard". Ya, I'm struggling with it too!!!
