Smile An attitude of gratitude - Feb. 24 - March 1

It seems that no matter where we are in the journey of life... if our food and life are in a good place OR if our food and life are not in the best place... It always helps to show gratitude. There's always something to be grateful for.

Got five? Want to share?

Please feel free to share daily or weekly or whenever you like.

I'll start - I am grateful for:

- willingness to try - and even though my food isn't "perfect" all the time, I am grateful that I am moving past the "all or nothing" thinking with food more than not

- a wonderful weekend with my family in Michigan. Celebrated my grandson's first birthday. He is a joy -

- fewer aches and pains today

- moving forward in my quest for health

- my family, my friends, 3fc, and my internet connections

I'm grateful:

-- that bad days always go away, and things always get brighter.
-- that failure doesn't exist even when you make mistakes, so long as you work on what went wrong and move past it.
-- that my DD's enthusiasm to "mexercise" is contagious.
-- that I am in more control over myself today than I was this weekend. =/
-- that it is spring time and just beautiful here.

--that I was able to stay on plan ALL weekend!
--that I lost almost 10 lbs in a week!

2. The snow has made the outdoors look magnificent
3. My baby literally making my DD and I hold our stomachs from laughing so hard. She is silly.
4. Good friends that you don't have to talk with all of the time... just pick up where you left off last time.
5. God's continued grace in my life

Today, I am grateful for -

- willingness to try

- to be happy to lose a pound in two weeks. There was a time in my life where this would be a huge disappointment and would throw me back face first into the feed bag. I am happy and content that the scale keeps going down. Like the tortiose and the hare....slow and steady wins the race. I can't do much exercise right now....so, I am so, so grateful

- ice and heat for my pieces and parts

- meditation - free seritonin

- my grandson, Alex and the joy I felt at his first birthday party
