Maybe I'm doing something right?

Monday, October 19, 2009

So, if you saw me on the friend feed lately, you know that I haven't been feeling great physically or emotionally. I have a lot on my plate (just like everyone else, I'm sure) right now. I have been sick the last couple of weeks and my husband and I have been having some issues. Anyway, I am feeling pretty low, but I have been making an effort to at least ACT positive, even if I have to fake it.

Well, today (when I was feeling like a particularly fat, ugly, and terrible person) one of my co-workers came up and whispered "I have to tell you, you look very pretty. You look like you are happy." !!!!!!!!!! I was amazed. Here I felt like a total loser and have not been particularly happy at all, but I guess my efforts to put on a happy face are working. At least one person out there thinks I am the happy person I soooo want to be!

I'm going to keep plugging away at my troubles. I hope you all do too.

    Wow I am having the same kind of week. Issues with the husband are just making me sad. But I have finally realized that eating chips or a tastykake is not going to make me feel better.I have just been sticking to my plan of healthy eating and exercising even if I don't want to. SO I am very proud of you and your positive attitude. It's contagious. Thank you.

    The old adage is "fake it until you make it," so if you're not feeling that great right now but you're trying to act in a positive way, research shows your mood will fit your actions. I think that it's great that you are trying to stay with your diet even when you don't feel like it, and that you're not giving up, no matter what you feel you've done that might be against the weight loss plan you've set for yourself. Best of luck. emoticon
