Weekend Quote – What do you want?

16 Comments 1525 views

People don’t succeed because the give up what they want the most for what they want right now.

My Boot camp instructor says this all the time and I think it’s genius! Now, why I didn’t remember it BEFORE I devoured the extra cheesy fried eggplant parmesan with an extra side of bread for dinner tonight, I’ll never know!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    This is a great quote! With your permission, I would like to use it to jump start some freewriting and goal setting with my Senior English classes in the next couple of weeks. I am also adding it to the quote I have taped on my computer at school. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for putting that quote up, Roni! I really need that. I have lost 60 lbs, and have been maintaining for a year now. Lately, I just seem to have lost all motivation. I have gained 5 lbs back, so not much, but I am just terrified that it is going to turn into 10, then 15. I get on track for a day, and then BAM…cravings hit and I instantly give in. I am going to put this on my refrigerator. Roni, did you ever find a time in your maintenance where you just seemed to lose all motivation…maintenance is definitely harder than losing in my opinion.

    Dude, I might need to tattoo that to my hand or something so I’ll never lose it! That’s great! Thank you so much!

    I’m going to repeat that one to myself until I remember it. Great way to think about goals!

    My WW leader says this all the time and it is soooo true. The instant gratification of food is what sabotages my weight loss efforts most of the time. It applies to all areas of life too, not just fitness and weight loss. Great quote to remember!

    I need to write this on my hand.

    I’ve heard that one before … it’s great advice to remember, though. I should have thought of that before I went on “vacation” and fell off the WW wagon for the weekend. I doubt One-derland will be mine today … :P

    This comment is so great. I have been using it over and over again when I’m working out or when I want to reach for something I really don’t need to eat. Thanks for sharing!
