I just wanted to say thank you to you all for sharing your stories. It is so helpful to read everyone's different stories ~ there is always something helpful there ~ something to be learned.
The most recent one for me, that is helping me keep me on track is what several have shared ~ a way of thinking ~ choices. That if I eat something that I could have made a better choice about ~ that I haven't blown it ~ that I just didn't make as good a choice that time. It is helping me get away from my old habits of thinking that with that "not as good a choice" ~ that I have "blown it" and then I be "bad" for the rest of the day, week ~ whatever. This way of thinking has sort of helped me keep going.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!
Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)
