What better way to get motivated for success -- and the countdown to summer -- than to start the week with a few inspirational quotes.

All our dreams can come true - if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
Henry David Thoreau

You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
Richard Bach

If you're going to be thinking, you may as well think big.
Donald Trump

And finally... a few words of wisdom from Diet.com member SteffySue:

Life happens. It happens every single day. Some days life happens to be a little harder than other days. But if you let it life circumstances which are temporary, will make a permanent impression on your body. You have to eat well, 80% of the time to be at your best. That's a period at the end of that sentence. You have to eat right to be at YOUR best... not just best weight, YOUR best.

Most people, when they quit living a healthy lifestyle, quit one day at a time. You don't just wake up one morning and say to heck with it, I am just going to be fat and enjoy it. You managed to "catch" yourself before you let it get completely away from you. THAT'S GREAT!!! That\'s what maintenance is all about! To catch a lifesaver BEFORE you sink completely under!

Just set yourself back up right. Today, you will eat your veggies. Today you won't revert to junk food. Today, you will be your BEST!

"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do." This is all I can say :)
