I agree that there is no "end" to the journey on which we have embarked. Not until we "shuffle off this mortal coil."

I think too many overweight people think of weight loss as an intermission in their lives; they'll tough it out until it's over then get back to normal. I gained a lot of weight with my first pregnancy, which propelled me into WW way back when. I remember when I was pregnant with my second, the doctor told me that, believe it or not, it's easier to not gain weight during pregnancy than to have to lose it afterward. I have applied that logic to the rest of my life.

The glory of WW is that is where I found a way to think about eating which has lasted for decades. I used to think that thin people ate what I ate but got away with it. WW showed me how they REALLY eat. Years of observation bear that out. I have to weigh, measure and count and they don't, but that's about it. Once WW showed me what "normal" really was, why would I want intermission to end? The intermission turned out to be the real show.

Happy ending for sure is my goal. Due to unforseen happenings, this past time has been more of a struggle. I am now back full swing with exercising and tracking all the time. I will succeed because I have a plan. One day at a time I will get there, since this is my lifestyle and I need to do this for me to feel and look better. Thanks for the reminder and great thoughts on this. emoticon

I love this! Never thought of it like that but I have done it many times.

My story is still a work in progress now but at least I am working on it.

Many times I have shut the book and turned my back.

It is good to know that it was still here for me to open back up and pick up the progress again.

Mine may be a long story but it will be a good one with a happy ending also!

In time we all will have a happy ending. We just have to keep our eyes on the prize. We must all stick together. There will be highs and lows, but we will cheer cheer cheer

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

Blanche, that picture of Bob and I was made before I got to goal. Bob is a lot skinnier now as well.

"If you want a happy ending, it depends on where you stop the story."


Do we want a happy ending to our weight loss journey? Well that is a stupid question, of course we do. Problem is with weight loss there is never a end. Yep, no ending, because we have to continue to eat healthy and exercise daily to achieve the last effect we are looking for. How do you get a ''Happy Ending?" Very simply, following the healthy food guidelines, attending meetings, asking for help, tracking...even when you don't want to, and Believing enough in yourself that you can do this.

Many of us have stopped the story way too soon, but we keep returning to see if we can find that happy ending. So how is your story going so far? Do you need to do some editing by getting yourself back on track, or are you going to just stop right where you are now and close the book. The choice is totally up to you.

Make it a GREAT day.
Hugs to all,
Joan
