No matter where you’re at on your fitness and wellness journey, motivational quotes for weight loss can help reinspire you to make healthy choices and move your body.
Whether you want to lose the last 10 pounds or more than 100… losing weight can be frustrating and demotivating.
HOW DO MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
Your thoughts are powerful and what you focus your mind on matters… especially when it comes to losing weight.
The problem? Human beings are hardwired to do things that are comfortable and make us feel good…. and eating junk food and being lazy on the couch/bed feels better than working out and eating healthy foods like vegetables.
Processed foods, sugars, and foods with chemical additives are also very addictive. They affect hormones and neurotransmitter activity most and can have a negative impact on your thoughts, making it even harder to stay motivated.
Processed, inflammatory foods can also affect the gut microbiome. The bacteria in your gut microbiome – once overgrown can become pathogenic. Pathogens are living things and can affect your mood and thoughts, causing cravings for the things they need to stay alive…
They can also affect energy and mood, leading to a lack of motivation, willpower, and cravings making it difficult to feel like eating healthy and exercise.
This is why the voice in your head that’s saying “give up” or “this is pointless/hopeless” and “I can start Monday” is usually louder than the one that says “stick with it” and “keep going” and “we can do this.”
Negative thoughts can also induce stress and anxiety hormones. Stress releases cortisol which has an impact on weight and health negatively, too.
Motivational quotes can make thoughts, attitude, and self-talk more positive by shifting focus to feeling empowered and able to stay on track and make healthy choices.
A happier, positive attitude and mindset, makes it easier to feel good.
Feeling good makes it easier to make healthier decisions, like saying ‘no’ to processed, sugary junk foods, exercising, eating healthier, and taking better care of your body.
Motivational quotes inspire can cause positive feelings, make you want to leave your comfort zone, and feel like taking action.
The next time you’re feeling discouraged, use these motivational quotes as a motivational kick in the pants to get on track and/or stay on track.

Some notes about these motivational weight loss quotes:
These quotes are designed to help motivate those who need a positive boost in attitude and inspire action… and sometimes can make you feel ‘called out’… which doesn’t always feel great. If you have a negative reaction to any of these quotes I suggest asking yourself why and what you can do to feel better in a positive, productive, healthy way.
These quotes are not designed to serve as ‘toxic positivity’ or replace health-oriented choices. For example, you can’t quote yourself out of a gut microbiome or hormone imbalance… but you can quote yourself into staying motivated as you’re making healthy changes. See the difference?
Positive words can 100% alter gene expression, strengthening areas of the frontal lobes of the brain and promote cognitive functioning. They propel the motivational centers of the brain into action and build resiliency.
I hope these quotes helped inspire you to work on your fitness and wellness goals.
