And the foot bone's connected to the....

Happiness....what is it really?

It's elusive.  It's fleeting.   It's kinda lacking in my life. I have moments of happiness, but for the most part I'm unhappy with how my life is playing out.  For various reasons I feel or actually am boxed in, unable to change the path that I'm on.  It's like a roller coaster....I got on and I can't get off until the ride is done.  (I love roller coasters...but not this one called life!)

I pray for happiness. I try to figure out what would bring me happiness.  I want happiness.  But it's hiding from me.

The bigger problem?   Happiness plays a HUGE role in my weight loss efforts.  When I have a handle on things my weight loss goes so much better.  Case in point...early last year I had a handle.....and I was losing.  My world imploded and happiness fled and I started to gain.  Luckily I have stopped the gain but I am struggling with losing more.

To make matters worse...the lack of progress in my weight loss efforts contributes to the unhappiness.

So you see, it is all interconnected.

I don't know how to fix it.  But I am just going to march onward and hope and pray for a change!

I can so relate to this...sorry you are going through some hard times right now.

That's exactly what you're gonna do - March forward! You may be going through a lull, but you've made SO much progress - don't lose that!

I've always taken my life in 10 year periods. Each 10 year point is vastly different than the last - sometimes better, sometimes not, but always different.

My progress definitely determines my mood. Sometimes you gotta pretend progress is not a factor so I am glad to hear you are moving onward.

It is good to recognize the wins you have had rather than focus on the ones that may have been missed, maybe that will help :)

I'm having a problem with this right now myself. I'm extremely unhappy and it's hard to do all the right things and take care of myself when I'm so miserable. So, I get it. If you can change something in your life, though - do. I'm completely trapped right now at the whim of forces beyond my control, but I know it'll fade. And regardless, every day I keep trying to do right by myself. :)
