Doing the Happy Dance

It’s Wednesday check in and I want to share that I am doing the happy dance!

I’ve been slowly and steadily losing weight and I’m finally at a place where I feel so much better. And it shows-inside and out. A few good wins added together can really make a difference in my attitude, which then spurs me on to continue.

The best thing I did for myself was to keep going. Even when I was discouraged with a very slow process, I kept going and I will continue. I have a way to go, but I know I can do it now.

And, I can enjoy life along the way.

I loved our Europe vacation this spring, and I ate everything I wanted at all of the birthday parties and summer celebrations. But when the party’s over, I reminded myself to get back on track and eat less and exercise more.

Looking at the process, I can see that I want it all. I want to enjoy life and be healthy and fit and EAT things I want to. Especially during celebrations. But I had to remember to stop the celebrating once it was over.

That took me longer to figure out.

So I kept going and little by little the weight came off. I’ll admit that I have help from my best friend and her weight loss clinic…shhh…that’s the real secret. But I’ll tell you more about that later.

I’m off to do some more happy dancing!

The last time I wore this dress was in 2012! (or should I say, the last time I fit into it?)
