Choosing to be happy

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

I had two awful eating days yesterday and today. And right now I feel awful. I'm so full I feel sick, I ate an ungodly amount of calories, and I am depressed about my "failure".

Right now, though, I am making a CHOICE. I am choosing to be happy because:

It is Christmas
I have had a joyful Christmas season, and I am so blessed
I thoroughly enjoyed the food I ate
I am starting fresh right NOW
It was only two days. I have had bad WEEKS and bad MONTHS, and I can certainly recover from two DAYS
The only time I've truly failed is the time I don't get back up again- falling down is NOT the problem.
I am so EXCITED about where my life is going and the continued success I am going to have with weight loss.
I need to not be afraid of failing, but excited about succeeding!

Ok, great! I am back in a happy mood, with joy in my heart, because I chose to.

I'm still a little scared, so I will just remind myself of my mission statement:
I will live my life without fear: wholeHEARTedly, COURAGEously, CONFIDENTly.

Merry Christmas!

    I chose to spend 5 minutes logging onto spark people, and lucked out by reading your blog. Choosing to be happy is just what I was looking for. Merry Christmas emoticon

    You beat me to the punch. I was going to say, two days doesn't have to be three days. :) Besides, I have turned a bad two days into a phenomenol week and you can too!

    That is a great attitude to have. Two days will not undo all the hard work you have been doing to achieve your goals. Tomorrow is a new day to start fresh. Keep your chin up!
