So one of the emails sent to me today from Spark was regarding Happiness. The whole I can be happy when I.....for many of us on this website it is my happiness can happen when I lose or I am a certain weight.

When I was young in very early twenties I had that mindset, as time went on I realized fat or thin, ugly or beautiful on the outside doesn't really matter when it comes to happiness. It is all about the person you are. Sure we all have our bad days and aren't "happy, happy, joy, joy" each and every minute, but we can view things in a positive way more often than not.

Taking time to enjoy your life, not letting others ruin what you do, being resilient, doing small acts of kindness, these are things that can make each day a bit happier. My weight doesn't make who I am, it is just how the world views me and I refuse to be one of those fat people on Dr. Phil saying how I can't have a life because I am fat, that is just a cop out!

Not looking forward to this week. Saturday will be the 1yr anniversary of my mother's death and notice I am not as positive this week. I will get over it, but it is going to take time.

    Oh, I am so sorry about your mom... Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is with you. Just pray about it. He knows your feelings, emotions and can handle your burden. Just give it to him. May you have a blessed and peaceful week.

First thanks CDNRAE, good advice and I do break it down....just have a hard time doing sometimes! :^)

So a co worker and I started talking about Ben and Jerry's ice cream, went to the website and noticed some really great new flavors. I had to do some shopping and found the flavors I thought looked good, so bought them. The good thing is, I only spooned out 2 tablespoons of each of the 3 flavors to taste them and put the rest back in the freezer. Normally I might have eaten at least one pint in the evening. It isn't much but I am proud of myself.
