My Pursuit of Happiness

Sunday, October 05, 2014

For the past 5 years I've been playing the diet game without lasting results. I'd lose weight only to gain it back, plus some. I've been unhappy for so long, that I forgot what it's like to be content. I had placed bandages on all of my emotional scars and hoped for the best. Including losing weight.

I finally had my "aha" moment after listening to Iyanla Vanzant. Until I faced the source of my unhappiness and do the work, I would remain on this roller coaster and never keep the weight off. I've taken the first steps to reclaim my life and my happiness and it all began with acknowledgment and forgiveness. Along with setting reasonable goals.

Well, I worked up the nerve to weigh myself today, and I LOST 5 lbs!! Finally, I found what works for ME!! I know that I have a long way to go, but as long as I continue doing my work, I'll remain on the path of my pursuit of happiness.

    emoticon Congratulations on -5! I recently was on Iyanla Vanzant website and honestly I had a difficult time narrow my choice to only one item, currently working on having a complete library of all her work. Ended up buying the daily devotional - Until Today.
