With a new year looming in the not-so-distant future, a lot of people (myself included!) are thinking about their New Year’s resolutions and all of the positive changes they hope to make in their lives. Whether it’s making healthier eating choices, committing to 30 minutes of physical activity each day, or abstaining from things like sugar or alcohol, weight loss always seems to be the underlying motivation behind many of the promises we make to ourselves on the first of the year.

The problem with making resolutions is that we start off pumped and ready to become a better version of ourselves, but unless we take steps to keep ourselves focused, motivated, and accountable, we typically run out of steam and give up.

One thing I find extremely helpful when I’m working towards a big goal is to seek out regular encouragement. Whether it’s a motivational podcast, an inspirational blog post, or a meaningful quote, finding something to remind me of the WHY behind what I’m trying to achieve can make all the difference when I feel like giving up.

If losing weight is one of your big goals for the year ahead, here are some of my favorite weight loss quotes to keep you focused and motivated on even your toughest days!
