Famous Quotes about Weight Loss Diets

Marlene Dietrich, the famous actress, once said, "I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself." I couldn't agree more, so here are some of my favorite quotations about dieting for the purpose of losing weight.

I couldn't find out who wrote the TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) pledge, but it is excellent, and I want to include it here: "I am an intelligent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my injured ego or dull my senses, I will remember. Even though I overeat in private my excess poundage is there for all the world to see. I will take off pounds sensibly."

Mae West, well known and loved for her wicked humor, said, "I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond."

The entire cookie industry tells us that "A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand."

Daniel L. Worona is a well-known humorist who specialized in diet humor. He said, "Question: How do you get a couch potato to do sit-ups? Answer: You tape the remote control to his ankles."

Joe E. Lewis was an American comedian and singer. He once said, "I went on a diet, swore off drinking and heavy eating, and in 14 days I lost two weeks."

And we all remember that funny fat man, Jackie Gleason. Jackie fought his weight for most of his life. He said, "The second day of a diet is always easier than the first. By the second day you're off it." Yep!

Whether famous, rich, or extremely intelligent, all types of people struggle with their weight.  We are not alone no matter our situation. What makes you different is what you do to better your situation. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. My last qoute, Albert Einstein "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results." 

So if you are not happy with the way you are, what are you doing to change?
