Happiness is a choice

Somewhere along my weight loss journey I read and heard reiteration of the truth I've always known - that happiness IS a choice. As someone who doesn't usually work to hard to be happy (natural optimist), I have seen my own attitude deteriorate as I've struggled to undo the 40+ years of damage to my mental connection to food. It has been the scariest and hardest thing I have ever chosen to turn my thoughts and attitude around. Finally I am making real progress and feeling so much better ...
Somewhere along my weight loss journey I read and heard reiteration of the truth I've always known - that happiness IS a choice. As someone who doesn't usually work to hard to be happy (natural optimist), I have seen my own attitude deteriorate as I've struggled to undo the 40+ years of damage to my mental connection to food. It has been the scariest and hardest thing I have ever chosen to turn my thoughts and attitude around. Finally I am making real progress and feeling so much better about who I am and how I look.

I am a single mother of three adult kids who are attempting to leave the nest and try out their own wings. I am the third oldest girl (of 8 kids) in my family. I work as an QA for an aerospace company. In the past five years I've completed my Bachelor's and Masters degree programs while working full time. I was married for 19.5 years, and now divorced for 4 and finally figuring out who I am. It's amazing finding that you are more than what you think.

Looking forward to this journey!

Thanks for the encouraging words on my blog :) You're right, 17#'s of butter in a shopping cart would be an eye opener LOL. Keep up the good work on your own journey. Looks like you're doing great!
