Summer of my Contentment....

Tuesday, June 09, 2015

Today was weight watchers...and...I was actually LOOKING FORWARD to going! I wanted my starting point for my personal twelve summer challenge. I ...was prepared to accept that number on the scale ...whatever it would be. To my delight....I was down from the previous week by 1.4 I smiled.

I went and took my seat...my spot. Everyone has THEIR seat at the meetings. We may not always know each other's name, but we know we each sits! I thought of my friend Peggy....she also attends either Tuesday or Thursday meetings in her state..and we always post we will save each other a seat.

To my surprise...the topic was BE HAPPY and HEALTHY this summer.

Hello? What did I blog about the other day?

Yet...this went a step further.

Life is messy.....life...gets in the way. We want to quit....we don't want to "diet" anymore. YET...are we tired of eating healthy....counting points? ....or...just tired of what is going on in our lives?

I admit.....I have been TIRED a long time now. That has resorted to quick fixes that got me deeper in the weight game.

I have lacked balance........


Sherry ....was....good.....(as usual)........She reminded us that Life gives us Happy moments.......and what were ours? What makes you smile?

Many were sharing...and others were smiling....nodding their head yes....and sharing theirs.

For some....it was people...friends...family.....
.

some brought up nature......flowers...animals.
...etc.......


What it comes down too...it is what you VALUE....APPRECIATE ....in...your life. Sometimes we have to be REMINDED ...that ...Life is grand.

Our homework this week......is to write down...every day..a moment that made us smile............we are to use our weeklies......not stick them aside....but to USE IT......

and....

a light bulb went on..... emoticon

Sherry is always STRESSING our weekly. She does. I have never listened. I HEARD...but....didn't listen. I thought of the BOX I use to store mine.....recipes in some...I wanted to try...but...it is in the box...the box that gets bigger each week. The box...I only look into when I DUMP my new weekly. WOW...what a WASTE. I stuck my WEEKLY...in my FOOD TRACKER...to USE...to WRITE INTO.....to THINK AND ACT UPON.

DUH.


ADDED bonus.....each week we attend...for the next twelve weeks....we get a STICKER...in a HAPPY SUMMER BOOK....and....when the SUMMER ends.....and we get 10 stickers out of 12....we get a HAPPY FACE CHARM.


TWELVE WEEKS......

my SUMMER CHALLENGE...I decided to do PRIOR to this meeting.....

I had NO idea....

FATE....is SLAPPING ME IN THE FACE...


I may not be bathing suit worthy...but....

this summer...will STILL be one of CONTENTMENT.

    I am so happy you are writing blogs again!! I always enjoy reading what you are thinking about and what you are doing to stay healthy and yes, happy! It does seem as if every road sign this summer is pointing you to your 12 week challenge!! OK, happy face charm is nice, but I was kinda hoping it would be a flip flop! Hee. Looking forward to talking about happiness at my meeting tomorrow! We tend to be a crazy bunch so I bet I will smile a lot and probably laugh!! And, every body is bathing suit worthy!! Never forget that!! Welcome to your summer of contentment!

    I agree with Peggy....there is no reason that we cannot share things that made us smile....
    Mine for today? Reading Mary's Blog....even before she said about what made you smile...I was smiling!! Why? Because I oh so want for my Sis to be happy and content with herself.... emoticon emoticon and returning to WW's is such a great start!!
