I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.
I try to think of five things to be grateful for every day and write them down in a little book. It is often the same things, but that is o.k. I am grateful for: my husband, my children, my pets, the sun, friends. And this board. Still struggling, but I am here.
-that I'm healthy
-that it's sunny outside again!!!!!

-that I made it through my walk today
-for the love of my family and for the small things in life
