Are you as addicted to Pinterest as I am?! I absolutely love going on there to dream, to be inspired, to learn, and to grow. And, okay, to waste a ton of time. I find so many interesting ideas from Pinterest everyday, and I just wanted to share some of it with you guys on a weekly basis. Hence Pinterest Perspectives.

F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my all-time favorite authors, and I love being able to introduce his work to new groups of students every single year when we study The Great Gatsby.  The way that he can string words together is nothing short of magical.   This quote comes from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and it really rings true to me tonight.

Of course I can relate the ideas to my weight; up to this point I can’t say that I’m proud of the way that I’ve allowed my weight to creep up and up and up into this unhealthy, morbidly obese place.  But I am proud of the work I’ve been doing, inside and out, to redirect my life.  To walk a different path towards health and fitness.

I’m so glad that I’ve found the strength to start over this summer.

This week I’ve decided to post a bunch of inspirational weight loss quotes. It’s my way of “cheating” because I know I’m not going to have a lot of time for long posts, but I definitely want to check in here regularly, and I need to keep my motivation up.

After each quote I post, I’ll make sure to add a few thoughts that the quote evokes.  I really find the words of others inspiring (I’d better! Since I’m an English teacher, and I LOVE the written word!), so I think I’m going to start doing this on a weekly basis going into the new year.  Probably on Monday, because I think we can all use a bit of a pick-me-up (or a kick in the ass, as the case may be) after the weekend.
