I had tricked myself into believing that I wasn’t the kind of person where good things in life where meant to happen. I always pinned my dreams on “someday when I lose the weight I’ll be happy.” If anyone out there thinks the same way, listen to me when I say it’s a bunch of crap. You are worth it. Most importantly, you can get to your goals. The only piece of advice I can dish out is to never ever give up. That’s the secret, just be stubborn as all heck and no matter if you gain/lose never ever stop what your doing. Currently I’m trying to live my life by my own values and making the best out of everyday I’m blessed to be here.
The quotes that motivate me: (I like quotes)
“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.” - George S. Patton
“Hard work, hard bodies.” - Jeff trainer from Gym
"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer” - Albert Camus
“We have in us what we will become” - Albert Camus
“Fear defeats more people than any one thing in the world” -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” - Muhammad Ali
“But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?” - Albert Camus
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” - Confucius
