Powerful Words!

This journey is about more than just weight! It is about a wholly healthy you (spiritually and physically). If you made good eating choices, were diligent about hitting the gym, and humble before God this week and still gained a little then no worries. Weight is one measure of progress, but your heart is a truer one.”
– Aaron, on pursuing whole health and not just physical health.

“It is because you have been freed that you are now free to order your body in a way that reflects your freedom.”
– Coach

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson

“Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against passion and your appetite. Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody. But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?”
-Kahlil Gibran

“Very few women ever get the chance to be loved so fully, so completely, so recklessly, and so passionately, without romance fudged in the middle. Kim, YOU are blessed!”
-Lisa Frey

We each progress at our own rate.  We are not competing against one another, we are challenging ourselves.
-Hanlie

“the stakes in this are continually being raised and I’m sure the enemy is on full alert doing whatever he can to stop this.  You and your impact, Kim are a fork in the devil’s eye because he stands opposed to the tidal wave of healing and goodness that you and your journey represent.  The lies, self-talk, and other bullshit are all attempts to halt or divert you from the exponential impact you are having bringing heaven to earth.  The devil is trying to put YOU in a box, silly him!!!  This is war and it won’t be easy, but oh how much greater is HE that is within you than he that is in the world.  Feel and believe that!”
-Aaron

“To me, the “Road to Beautiful” is not about a journey where the destination is beauty (one “method” of determining worth) but rather a journey of acceptance of beauty that is already there and has been there all along.”
-Aaron

“A little more living and a little less dying”
-JennyG, on why we keep TRI-ing

Those who, being really on the way, fall upon hard times in the world will not, as a consequence, turn to that friend who offers refuge and comfort and encourages the old self to survive. Rather they will seek out someone who will faithfully help them to risk themselves, so that they may endure the suffering and pass courageously through it, thus making of it a “raft that leads to the far shore.”
-Karlfried Durckheim

“It’s a beautiful day to hurt this much”
-Coach

“If it’s good up here(pointing to her head), it’s good everywhere!”
-G.I. Jess

“Weight loss is cool; but what you gain from weight loss, now that is AWESOME!” 
-Tate Eliason- trainer, coach, friend
