No matter what is happenning in your life. . . lots of good things or not so good things - there are always things for which you can be grateful. It always puts life into perspective.

Please feel free to join in. It feels good.

- 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.

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!

I'm so glad I found this thread! Gratitude is the cure for so much ... whenever my son used to start with a "poor me" litany, I'd immediately rebut it with, "well, be grateful that you are smart enough and strong enough to overcome this."

Maybe it's time I start applying my advice to myself!

I'm grateful for ...

- being a great cook. I'm on a campaign to save as much money as possible, which means eating meals inside the home. I know about nutrition and I have the means to make healthy, good-tasting and inexpensive meals daily.

- having a healthy and loving family.

- having a support network (both online at 3FC and in real life).

- having a great job that allows me to make choices that many others on this planet can't make.

I'm grateful that I am finally quelling what seemed to be an irresistible urge for fats and sweets. I've been battling it for a while, and I'm not sure where it went but I sure hope it never ever comes back!

I am happy and grateful that two strangers have done me a good turn at no benefit to them. Some people think that the world is full of unkind and mean people, and I don't find that to be true.

I am grateful for beautiful spring weather!

I am happy to have a job that I like, and other employment opportunities if needed.

I am grateful that my son reads the fine print before making decisions that could have a significant negative financial impact on him.

Unfortunately, I can not say much about my diet this week. I am grateful that I am recognizing the need to be more attentive to my meals and my exercise? ;)

An email I received today and I thought I would share with my gratitude friends!

God's Boxes

I have in my hands two boxes,
Which God gave me to hold.
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black box,
And all your joys in the gold."

I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,
Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.

With curiosity, I opened the black,
I wanted to find out why,
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.

I showed the hole to God, and mused,
"I wonder where my sorrows could be!"
He smiled a gentle smile and said,
"My child, they're all here with me.."

I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole?
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go."

- a healthy day yesterday...always grateful for that

- That my friend, Fran, mentioned Dr. Beck's book The Diet Solution - and that I've read a book so helpful in my approach to living with food

- realizing that taking medicine I need is more important than seeing the scale go down..and that I still need to eat well regardless of what the scale says as a result of that medicine

- my grandson loves the zoo!!!
