Wow. Thanks for sharing that. I too have had some difficulty smiling lately. I'm not sure why but your story hit home with me and I think it might help me to do the same.

Something great just happened to me and I want to share it with all my fellow Sparks. Couple of months ago there was a wildfire near my home. I put a few things in my car, just in case. Fortunately the wind shifted and the fire came no where near my home, One thing I took was my wedding picture. When I went to hang it back up again, I looked at the woman in that picture. I was happy and smiling and my teeth were showing. A lot has happened since that photo, mainly that my husband died 5 years ago. Being curious, I looked at other recent photos and saw that I smiled but no teeth. It was like my smile was not fully developed, that I was holding back. So last weekend I went to my first TOPS Fall Rally and I had a great time. We got up and did Zumba dancing and POW, I could feel it. For the first time in over 5 years, my smile was fully there, teeth showing, dancing and not caring what I looked like. I felt great. Since then when I look in the mirror I see a woman with a real fully involved smile. Yep, a change is in the air.
Just ambling along to my goal. Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Off to goal weight I go.
