Losing weight is hard work. In fact, I’ve been so stressed this week and overwhelmed with the to-do list that I’ve been eating and not exercising and I feel flabby. I’ve had this great transformation reveal and I’m proud of myself but overwhelmed and I need to refocus, cut myself some slack and get back on the horse to continue my transformation. This girl is far from done!

To help me get in the mood and realize that it is okay to have a few bad days without failing I’ve turned to some of my favorite weight loss quotes to inspire me and set me straight. I hope these are helpful for you if you’re struggling to lose weight or get fit. I get the struggles, the journey and personal battles and I hope these give you some comfort and inspiration.
