Happiness is not a destination

I've just heard this phrase used in relation to a healthy eating and exercise plan, basically saying if you're not enjoying the plan, if you don't think you can still be enjoying doing this in 6 months time, then you are following the wrong plan. This is such an important part of sticking to a plan long term, it simply has to be sustainable, has to be enjoyable, the actual process of getting slimmer and fitter has to make us happy TODAY 😊 because Happiness isn't a destination, it's a way of life 😊

Happy Weekend folks 😊

  • Hi Anna61 good one ....I like thatπŸ‘

  • I agree with that!

    Some people think I've been on a diet since January because I've been losing weight. I haven't. I've been eating to maintain the weight I want to be. I've avoided adding exercise I have no intention of continuing.

    When I reach goal weight, nothing changes; I'll just stop losing weight. I think you could call it the 'eat for the body you want, not the body you have' diet.

  • So true! :-)

  • I couldn't agree more Anna! My sentiments exactly! :)

    How are you, by the way? :)

  • I'm doing ok thank you, reduced my painkillers today and feel fine 😊 Walking my little 5 minute circuit 3 times a day 😊

    Looking forward to a weekend with my hubby and family ❀️

    You're doing very similar to me 😊 I'm 3lbs away from three stone . . . recent surgery has left me unable to exercise but I am still eating healthily so weight loss is a little slower but still going in the right direction 😊

  • Hi glad you are ok, I am on holiday at the moment drove down to Cornwall through the night and it's sunny now but I think rain is for cast.

  • As long as you see some sunshine 😊 Have a good time, Cornwall very pretty 😊

  • Thankyou and take care of yourself.

  • I am about to start week 12, have lost just over a stone and still as keen, if not keener. Wise words. Xx

  • Glad you are making a good recovery Anna61. I'm sure your 3lb will be gone soon. Take care of yourself and have a good weekend.

  • Thank you Cockneyblue 😊 Had another good nights sleep and woke up with minimal pain 😊

    Not stressing about weight loss just yet but I'm within a stone of my supposed 'healthy' weight which would be great 😊

    Have a good weekend 😊
