Mental Health, Weight Loss, and Being Happy

So I took a break for the last little while because I’ve been struggling. Struggling with joy, happiness and loving myself. But I am back with a fight in me.

I’ve touched on it briefly before but I deal with bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Usually I can kick it’s butt but sometimes like everyone I have it kick mine. So my point? I started a side blog. It will track my daily dealings with my mental health, my improvements in physical health and it is pretty much an open journal to what makes me happy and better.

I will absolutely be back on the horse with these postings, but if you want to check in on my journey my blog is https://bepositivelyloved.wordpress.com/

Everyone deserves happiness, sometimes you just have to fight for it.

2017 Goals and Hopes

How do you define success? Is it losing 10 pounds or is it being comfortable in your body?

Ideally we think ok set this goal and than I will be.. happy, confident, satisfied, etc.

But it’s the “than I’ll be..” that gets us tied up in a pattern of frustration. Why don’t we set ourselves up for success? Let’s make goals based off how we want to feel and see our life and not by how we are going to get there. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to lose weight but ultimately I want to feel confident and love my body.

So here’s my top 3 goals and hopes for 2017:

  1. love my body and be confident
  2. feel joy in more aspects of my life
  3. feel strong emotionally and physically

What are some of your hopes and goals?
