There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

If someone has something bad to say about you, it's probably because they have nothing good to say about themselves.

Since I became a mom ten years ago it seems like I always make myself a low priority. When I'm losing weight it is proof that I am taking the time to put myself high on my list of priorities. In order for me to lose I have to plan time for exercise, track my food, and plan healthy eating options. All of those take time, and I'm very proud to say I am losing again!

peace from the inner torment

My personal affirmation that I created for myself when I was 300+ pounds-"I am a person of value regardless of what I weigh. I am here to make a difference!" Using the power of love, I lost 173 pounds.

I always enjoy the reaction from others; the "Oh wow!! I didn't recognize you!" reaction.
It is an empowering moment that helps me to realize what I have accomplished :)

My clothes are fitting better! Today I bought a blouse without trying it on and figured it would be tight but I will lose enough weight to wear it soon. Imagine my surprise when I got home, tried it on, and it was loose on me! Wow, I am so excited.

Of course the more general stuff - I like the feeling of accomplishment and shopping in the misses department instead of womens. But a specific little thing that makes me smile is being able to tie my sneakers on top, because I can bend over enough now.
