So key! How many of you have said "I'll be happy when I'm [insert weight]. I'll take better care of myself then. Start living my life then." Short answer, weight goal does NOT equal happiness. I played that game with myself so many times and never won, no matter how many times I reached my goal weight. If you give your power to be happy away to some goal or some one, you won't find peace or true happiness at the end of that road. It will always elude you. You will always need a new goal.
Start finding your self love and joy now. And thru the process of achieving your goals. It's harder, yes. But well-earned. And no one or no thing can take it from you again.
