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.

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.

My turn! I am grateful:

--that I walked almost TWO miles on my lunch hour today and survived!
--that we are having another grandbaby around Christmas!
--that I was able to work out in my pool on Saturday for almost an hour! (even though the water was 78!!)
--that I was able to stay on plan ALL weekend!
--that I lost almost 10 lbs in a week!

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 :D
