~No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined~ Harry Emerson Fosdick

~Nothing of importance is ever achieved without discipline. I feel myself sometimes not wholly in sympathy with some modern educational theorists, because I think that they underestimate the part that discipline plays.

How very true! In life, most things and greatness can be achieved through discipline. Of course other factors may come into play to decide the final result but without discipline, no greatness can be achieved. One particular area is in losing weight. Most people want to lose weight and some are looking for quick fix to their weight problem. If only they would realize that all they need is discipline to see them through the change in lifestyle and eating habit, they would not only lose that extra weight but permanently keeping their new weight.
