Quotes, Health And Wellness

With summer finally here, the struggle of trying to shed the weight of those few extra pounds leftover from hibernation season is real. You really want that cute little summer dress from last year to fit. You really want to look banging in that teeny red bikini you bought on sale from Target for your beach trip. Girl, I feel you!

Losing weight and keeping it off is super challenging — especially when you lack the motivation to kick start a healthy lifestyle. Motivation is key when it comes to exercise, diet and weight loss, but it's hard when those freshly baked donuts from Dunkin are only a quick car ride away.

Frankly, nobody on this planet has an easy time losing weight.

Whoever told you shedding some pounds would be easy was lying. Who has the time to go to the gym five times a week while balancing work, school, and kids? On top of going to the gym, who has time to cook healthy meals from scratch each night when Grubhub now delivers McDonalds? The struggle is very much real.

Remember you're not alone in the (seemingly constant) battle of weight loss — we all have had those weeks where we were certain we would wake up every morning at seven and go for a run. Did we run? No! Did we get a few extra hours of much needed rest? Heck yes!

Don't feel discouraged if you fall off the health wagon. Get back up and try again. Remember to set realistic goals for yourself. Or, if you don't feel like going to the gym right now, read these 25 funny, relatable weight loss quotes about wanting to go to the gym. Win win.
