No matter what is happening in our lives... good things or not so good things - there are always things for which we can be grateful. Knowing this helps put life in perspective. It feels so good to acknowledge gratitudes. Studies show that doing this makes you feel good -and, also, you'll have a more positive outlook. :)

Please feel free to join in and share your gratitudes.

- grateful to be home and not having to go somewhere out of town. I've been mostly out of town since the beginning of August.

- glad to be back on line - I must get something to enable me to use the internet when not at home.

- Rachel is home for over a week now and is settling into her routine with her 24/7 aids, physical therapy and realizing it will be a long healing process for her shattered bone. I am so, so grateful she has come this far.

- I finally fell asleep last night... nearly 3:30 am. But - am grateful that it finally happened!

- my precious new grandson and his brother and sister :)

- good to see DS and family... glad we could help

- knowing that it is what it is - praying for all positive changes

- friends, family, you all, fb, internet, cell

Hi Beverly Joy and Cheryl. So good to "see" two of my favorite 3FC ladies!

I'm grateful for a wonderful husband who doesn't mind pitching in with meals and cleaning up the kitchen. He made a wonderful crockpot full of chili last evenng that I enjoyed for today's lunch and he made a grilled steak kabob dinner. It's so much easier to stay on-plan with his help.

I'm also grateful for finding an accountability partner here on 3FC and for the folks who post here daily.

1. Finally lost an inch off my calves - it only took 50 pounds before it reached the lower part of my body.

2. Finding terrific deals on designer clothes at my goal size on eBay.

3. Having fun using up my extreme diet foods getting ready for maintenance.

4. Enjoying watching body changes - the paper towel analogy is so apt.

5. Every time I worry about regaining, realize that I can't even bring myself to eat my full allowance of carbs and calories each day.

6. I love breaking into a run to cross a street and feeling so much lighter.

7. Walking about work and not having to apologize for moving through small spaces.

8. Not feeling like I should apologize for the groceries I'm buying at the checkout.

Howdy, y'all! I'd like to join this great attitude/gratitude thread, because it helps me stay focused when I call to mind what I'm thankful for. I'm a 58 y.o. retired physician, artist & writer, married with no kids. Workin' hard toward a projected weight loss of 220 pounds, though it may end up being less than that, depending on how I feel when I get close to my goal.

Grateful for:
—my wonderful Belgian friend Robine, with whom I correspond by email in French
—my sweet husband, who's supportive of everything I do
—the fact that on the Atkins diet, I can eat all the food I want without having to count anything, so long as it's the right food, of course
—my 51 lb. lost so far
—the leaves of scarlet, gold & orange in our yard
—my books, iPad & stereo
—the 3 Fat Chicks community, where I'm starting to feel at home :)

Lisa— What's the paper towel analogy?

Today I'm grateful
-for this thread!
-for coffee
-for nailing this hula hoop trick I've been working on and for having discovered hoop dance in the first place! It's given me so much confidence.
-for being a college student and have the opportunity to expand my mind so much.
-for being in the middle of a really cool book series.
-for having such a kick *** family. My mom and dad saw me doing so well with my new way of eating that they've decided to try it, although my dad keeps getting it mixed up with Atkins and asking me if he's supposed to avoid fruit for 14 days, even though I gave him the Primal Blueprint book. :P

BeverlyJoy, I also love Facetime. It is so great to see the grandkids when they live so far away.

* I am very grateful that I weighed in at 181.4 this morning. In my opinion, this is nothing short of a minor miracle. I am 58 and have not been at this weight since my early 20s. Even then, I doubt that I ever saw this number as I was gaining weight rapidly at that time.

* I am very grateful that I found my way to a low carb diet. I think that I can live with this for the rest of my life and that it will help me avoid the diabetes and dementia that run in my family.

* I am grateful for the doctor that set me on this path.

* I am grateful for the books and blogs that encourage me on this path.

Good Morning can I start posting over here too?

This morning I'm truly grateful for:
Dogs (Grooming is how I make money)
Happy "low maintenance" customers
my new electronic BP cuff and glucose monitor
weight loss (better BP and glucose)
Diet and exercise actually work for better health
My car
Spring!
3fc
People that don't ask/require anything.
Gurus that have come before me and did all the work. Then shared it.

Have been hitting too many rough patches so had better get back in here and look for the smooth places.

+ snowing today but it IS the end of March - a month from today it probably won't be snowing

+ my taxes are done and I don't need to pay as much as I did last year

+ although I had to put down my dear Disney, Jazz is filling part of the hole in my life :love:

+ my friends have been sooo supportive this month - even more than usual

+ the first part of the dental implant process is over - I was brave

+ I am so glad Doug is now on the Mill Board - he is so reliable

+ looks like Rachel's new play - "Desperate Housepets" - is going to be a success

+ aced the exam and interview to be the TPOC (www.tpoc.ca) Team leader - pet therapy

First I'm Glad this thread is here. What a nice way to end my internet day.

It warmed up in the afternoon today.
My dogs are my babies
Worked hard this week and feel good about it.
Work to do. It was really slow before.
My apartment is so peaceful and I have a beautiful view to me. (Big window/ big trees for living in the city.)
Delicious foods at the grocery and money to get some.
Good habits like making my bed.
"Ted talks" about being happy.
The "Happy" song from "despicable Me 2"
Good night everyone!
