I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I have inspired other people with my weight loss journey. I've had several people write to me and tell me that they are now pursuing a healthier lifestyle because of what I am doing. I think it's great that people are wanting to be healthier and are making steps towards that but I just cannot get it through my head that it's because of me. I think part of why it's so hard is because I am still so far from where I want to be. I look at the numbers and in the mirror and I am not even close to my goal. The other thing that makes it hard is that this journey has been such a struggle and I have fallen off the wagon so many times I should probably get a CT scan. Today a friend told me I had inspired her. It was super hard to believe today because today was one of those days that Oreo's and naps won over apples and exercise. I'm proud of my friend though, she's lost 30 pounds! (OK, I'm jealous too :)

I'm going to leave you with a few of my favorite inspirational weight loss quotes;

The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. ~ Benjamin Mays

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there. ~ Unknown

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure. ~ Tommy Kelley

If you want what you do not have, you must do what you have not done. ~ Unknown
