You can't out-train a bad diet

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

The End of Over Eating by David Kessler: describes how people, places and environment influence our eating habits. Also delves into the mysteries of food science and marketing and their influence our preferences for taste and quantity.

"I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you." C. JoyBell C.

Have an awesome day! emoticon

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.- R. Frost
