New Mantra

I was reading a friends blog today. It had NOTHING to do with weight loss. But there was something so profound that I had to share it! She said:

You can't quit on your worst day!!

I was blown away as I read this statement. How often in life do we fail to follow through with something because we get to the breaking point and say "forget it!"? Don't do it girls. When you get to the point where you think you're going to fall apart, pushing past it shows you how strong you are.

We learn so much when we overcome our struggles. We become stronger when we push past the desire to quit and DO IT ANYWAY!!

I LOVE THIS! Isn't amazing when we find pix of ourselves....and look at you now?! You totally transformed yourself, inside and out. You should feel very proud. xo

Oh Kari. You look so down in this pic. I hope that you don't have those feelings anymore. I'm so glad that you took the comp to heart and are becoming skinny and happy! Yay for happiness!

Your right, that is a good mantra. I will be saying that to myself every time I start to make an excuse for myself. "You can't quit on your worst day!!" So true, so right, thank you for sharing.
