Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys.  If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.  ~Fyodor Dostoevsky


Today I awoke, went to the closet to decide what to wear..and there in the closet were loads of choices...When I was heavy I used to decide what to wear the night before...painstakingly looking for something that would "hide" the fat.  Now I am free of that tedious chore.. I just look and choose on the spur of the moment.. This may seem like a simple thing to many, but to me, one who has been overweight all her life.. it is a joy.
Being a normal size in a normal world is also a joy.. no more staking out the chairs in a restarant.. no more trying to figure out how to get through the turnstyle at the subway gracefully...no more squeezing into the seat at the movies....people no longer give me looks about what is in my food cart... All these nonverbal bits of unhappiness...gone!
Think of all the little every day stresses that just disappear by not being obese.. Some of these stresses are self imposed and come from within, others are caused by the environment, and yet others are caused by people( sometimes intentional sometimes not).
There are so many joys in losing weight it is just a win/win situation!
 May you stop and count your simple joys today.
