Happy…what’s that?

Happiness is:

-waking up in the morning and looking at myself in the mirror and for the first time in 10+ years feel PLEASED by what I see.

-going on a 30 min run/walk in the neighborhood and coming home with only minimal discomfort in my knee.

-climbing 2 flights of stairs without getting out of breath.

-actually believing it when someone says I look beautiful, not thinking they were just saying it.

-believing that I can actually accomplish what I start.

-wearing shorts in public for the first time in 10 years.

-being free of addictive substances for 20 days. (in my case alcohol and cigarettes and junk food/fast food)

-realizing that I am strong. Physically and mentally.

-finally feeling attractive.

-sitting in any chair I want to.

-crossing my legs like a lady.


-having friends and family that have stuck by me through all of it. They listen to me complain, brag, grunt, gush, and still continue to come around.

-Being able to get my story out into the world.

-having a great home, a great job, and a life that allows me to concentrate 100% on my health.

-having someone ask me for help with their work out. Me….they want ME TO GIVE THEM POINTERS!!!!!

-feeling like I have a long life in front of me, instead of feeling like I’ll die in the next 10 years from heart disease.

-picturing my life and feeling good about it.
