Reason Wednesday

"Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realise that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way," Eileen Caddy

Hi there kitty kats!

This past weekend has been a good one for me in terms of realigning my goals and what I want in life - both within weight loss and outside of it too.

I just finished reading a comment that Sean of Daily Diary of a Winning Loser wrote on Kenz's All the Weigh most recent posting.

These words hit me so hard. Like bricks people. You all know by now that I love motivational stuff and I took some pieces out of his comment and have created a little sheet for me to read every day. I made a copy for my house, my purse and my work.

This is what I captured from the comment:

I have made an iron clad decision to change regardless of the circumstances or emotions of the day. Ultimately, if I am successful or not - it will not be because I chose calories or points, it will be because I made that unwavering decision to be consistent in my efforts. It will be because I decided to become really honest with myself about my relationship with food and exercise. It will be because I decided to make this time different than any other attempt - steamrolling excuses or rationalizations that try to give me an easy exit to my old behaviours. Can I just say - I am amazing in so many wonderful ways.

You see my lovelies - every single one of those words has touched my heart. Has penetrated my brain (has anyone seen Inception?? Amaze.)

I hope that whatever motivates each and every one of you on your journey, you keep close at hand to be a reminder of how amazing you all are and what you can accomplish once you put your mind to it.

Do it to it!



  1. You absolutely have the power---and you're right, you're amazing!

    I love the way you fit the comment to fit your situation.

    My best always,

  2. WOW, I just love that. As I move closer to my banding date, I am in search of anything that will motivate me. I have started before pictures and took measurements and also have a blog. This quote is so cool. I hope you don't mind, I would like to print this off and put it in my journal. I will defintely give credit and put by: Vaia via Sean Anderson.

    Thanks for the motivation and inspiration.

  3. That is a great quote. Thanks for sharing it with us. It is so TRUE!

  4. Amazing quote...amazing blogger/sister.


Speaking without thinking is like shooting without taking aim...I'd love to hear from you - just be nice to each other - and me :)
