- my family, my friends, 3fc, facebook, internet, cell phone

I am grateful for this thread that made me think - and made me realize that if the thing about the bed is the only good thing to spring to mind, then I need to try harder to look for life's positives.

Thanks friends for missing me! I missed you too. :) I take a laptop with me when traveling, but it can be hard to find the time to check in. It is surprising how often I think of my 3FC friends in RL.

Today I am grateful for:

- Time spent with loved ones
- Confidence that I can get back on track after getting off this weekend. The belief that I "couldn't eat healthy or lose weight" stopped me from doing either of those for many years. The old saying "can't never could" is true.
- Wanting and looking forward to my good food now. Steamed squash and onions for supper tonight is something to think about today when the vending machine is calling.
- Air conditioning
- Family, friends, 3FC, indoor plumbing, cell phone, Internet

07-07-2010, 07:15 AM
- My plans took a few twists and turns but I stayed in my calorie range yesterday - always grateful for that

- air conditioning and ceiling fans

- folks that care about me

- family, friends, 3fc, internet, facebook, cell phone

- yellow cherry tomatoes. How can one wee plant in a pot produce so much?
- a spray bottle of water which sure works to cool me down in this heat
- my dogs who teach me how to relax

07-07-2010, 07:43 AM
Rosinante - Hang in there! It is good to look for everything we have to be grateful for.

I just realized I have gone over 30 days without a binge! Was I slightly off plan a couple of times, yes-- but only a few hundred calories- still below my maximum calories to stay even-- and I didn't give up and continue to eat, just quietly went back on plan. I am very grateful for what seems to be the start of a change in my relationship with food.

Today, I am not making a list but have just one item. A big one. The weight loss journey has been slow and gradual for me. I often forget how miserable I was when I started. A post here on the forum got me to thinking about that, remembering what life was like. This time I am succeeding where I always failed before. My quality of life is so greatly improved. I don't ever want to take that for granted. I am grateful to the Lord that my life has changed so drastically.

I am grateful that I am overcoming my fear of doing art, it does not have to be perfect and i love it that I started my day with art today. I am grateful that I am going something really productive today without fearing it and I love myself more for it. I am greatful that I am the weight that I am, that I have been making a lot of effort over the past 2 months to get to where i am. I also read something online that says sitting down as a lifestyle makes you fat! I have a desk job but I am not getting fatter, I am losing it yay! I am greatful that I am still on the beach, day 11 and this is something good for me right?

It's the last day of July and I am grateful for:
- my AC during this record-breaking heatwave
- the Pypers and their dogs - a delight to have around
- fresh beans from my garden
- nobody got hurt or arrested during the Fair
- the fun times during the month that balanced out some of the cruddy stuff
- figuring out The Mill accounting system - much more than I bargained for!
- two new friends in Book club
- Sierra winning the Youth Award
- my soccer girls are home safely and had fun

I am also grateful for being able to post so many good things!

:hug::hug::hug:I am grateful for:

+ a new day with new possibilities
+ the weight I am at today
+ my new hobby swap-bot.com
+ for the most part being able to work from home
+ the quiet of home (except when Bessie sees someone walking their dog by our house or when the mail person comes)

hi cathydoe

do you think you might know who this is so i can thank her for m new hobby?

i have taken up stamp-collecting again and postcard collecting and i have been motivated to take more and better photographs. oh so much fun. things to make and do and give and receive! :carrot::carrot::carrot:
