Hi there maldon2012
I'm glad you found some inspiration in the quote. I too find inspiration in that particualr quote which is why I put it in my signature. In the past when I would start trying to lose weight (again!) I found it very discouraging at the thought of how long it would take...one of the many things that had me throwing in the towel before achieving my goal. This time, I really wanted to change my mindset and to push past those negative feelings, so I put the quote there as a daily reminder to myself.
Your scale may not be moving, but I bet your measurements are changing and given time, the scale will catch up! The scale doesn't tell the whole story so don't forget to take pictures and measurements too! It can be very motivating to see the changes in pictures!
You should stick around here and post in the weekly motivational thread. All of us there have had our ups and downs, but we are all there to support each other. Feel free to join us!
