Inspiration 101

Monday, January 26, 2009

Getting motivated is not hard!! What,,, are you kidding me, did I really write that!! Ok, getting motivated for a day is not hard, even two or three, or maybe a week. No it's not hard, but,,,,,,,,,, Staying motivated is!! I mean losing weight takes work, takes planning. Doing it alone is difficult and challenging to say the least. So staying motivated is a struggle for me. Especially if I feel I have worked so hard and then don't see the scale move.
So I have decided that I am going to read inspirational quotes often to keep my mind fresh and motivated. I'm going to read more of my sparks pages, also diet books and success stories, I'll read other peoples sparks pages etc. What ever it takes to keep me motivated and let me know I am not alone. Keeping educated and up on health and weight loss is the key to success so I must make sure I do that. That is my goal that I have set for now.
An inspirational quote I read the other day and loved is,,

You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.

-Chinese Proverb

Makes sense to me........

    Hey, I've been doing the same thing.

    Here's one of my favorites:
