- I stayed in my calorie range yesterday - I am grateful. I wanted to overeat, but I did not.

- willingness to accept my weight staying the same since I weighed two weeks ago. I've been away from home nearly 11 of thoses days and I did not gain. I thought I was careful enough to have lost some weight - but, really I am grateful to stay the same rather than any gain.

- Mom had a good doctor's appointment yesterday

- dh's sister and our neice are coming for supper on Easter. It's three hour drive for them - I am glad they are coming.

- friends, family, this site, internet, cell phone

Cathydoe - you'll feel so good when those taxes are finally done.

- Yesterday was a healthy day - I am grateful - and willingness to plan and try.

- today will be spent with many people that I love dearly

- so many bulbs in bloom - & I will pick some to make a bouquet for the table.

- a special day to use my 'good' china & Grandma's silver cutlery. It makes such a pretty table.

- family, friends, this site, internet, cell phone

I am grateful that I have love in my heart and in my life.

I am grateful that my daughter is healthy, well and happy.

I am grateful that I was able to help a friend in need recently and all turned out well.

I am grateful to have a safe place to live with many comforts.

Even though I only lost 2 lbs in March - I still had a great month. The fact that I didn't gain and was able to mostly maintain during an illness and a vacation is something that I dont think I could do before. I am grateful for all I have learned in my journey and thankful I am smart enough to know I have more to learn!
