Some of my favourites:

"You'll never achieve extraordinary results by taking average measures." - Skwigg

"You have to be the change you want to see in the world." - Ghandi

"Winners are too busy to be sad, too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful and too determined to be defeated." - Darryl Campbell

"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure." - Bill Cosby

"How can you possibly fail to meet your goal if you just don't ever quit?" - source unknown

And a weight loss related one...

"If you really want to lose, you'll find a way, and if you don't want to, you'll find an excuse. It's up to you." - source unknown.

Some of these really struck a chord with me.

Losing weight has given me a "Freedom" that I had never previously experienced as an adult... and I am LOVING it!!!

160kg (2004)... 73kg (2006)... Working on maintaining.
