When I was on a long time ago, someone had started a thread called "Five things I am thankfull for today". For some reason I found that to be a bit theraputic at the end of a hard day. Now that I am back I can't seem to find that thread anywhere, so I figured I could start it up again. I hope that is ok with everyone, not trying to step on any toes. :D

Ok....so here I go....

So far today.........the 5 things I am most thankfull for are

1. My husband :love:

2. My best friend Zibbie :queen:

3. This website :grouphug:

4. My Tredmill :tread:

5. The Shining Sun :flow2:

Hope you all have a wonderfull day! :goodluck: :dancer:

John Cena is the new Marky Mark!...only with more muscles, and wrestling ability. I'll miss him while he's filming, too, but it will be fun too see him in a movie!

Yeah, a pic of him on the fridge might be motivation to keep a girl on plan :p

Hey hey hey.....glad you to see you guys like this idea. I loved it when I saw it a couple years back when I was on, so I figured I would start it again. Would love to take credit for the original idea, but can't. It was someone else who thought of it, and I think they are brilliant. Sure is a nice way for me to end my day. Hope everyone is doing well.

My five for today............

1. That my 84 year old Grandpa made a safe 4 hour trip to come and visit for the weekend. (Drove himself the whole way)

2. My fleece Hello Kitty blanket.

3. Hubbies new job.

4. Lip Medix

5. Family & Friends

Hey, hey, hey....I can'e believe I have found my old thread from 2004. Looks as if I was the last to post on 11-05-2004. I would love to start this one up again. Hopefully other people will hop on the 5 Things I Am Thanfull For bandwagon with me. Like I said when I started this up, I had posted on a thread like this along time ago. I went away and came back, and I couldn't find it, so I started it up again. Now....here I am again....went away...for a long time...back, and I think it would be nice. It was always a nice ritual for me. Made me remember that no matter how bad things seem to be, or how awfull the day was, there are good things in each of our lives.

Hope to see y'all post as well. Take care...:0)

Five Things I Am Thankfull For ...

1. This website

2. Family

3. The sunshine that was beaming thru my windows all afternoon.

4. My Yorkiepoo. Spike

5. Ice Water

Hi everyone - My daughter showed me this website and list and I've been reading posts all evening. I'm so impressed by the support and positive posts. I'm looking forward to sharing, learning and making friends on this list.

I just started (day 2) of the Fat Smash Diet - I think I'm having major caffiene withdrawls - I've had a headache for the last two days, but for the most part, I feel great.

I'm most thankful for

My daughter
My son
My health
My friends
and last but not least - my puppy dogs

Bye for now

1) THAT I'M GOING TO TUCSON FOR THE GEM SHOW TOMORROW. A biggie :)
2) Fitday/3FC for getting me through
3) Not losing ALL of my boobs with weight loss (although I miss my butt terribly)
4) My family, especially my mother who is STILL worried that I might be dead when she hasn't heard from me in... 3 hours. Seriously, we talked at 4pm, she called at 10 and couldn't get through, and SO relieved the next morning. :-P Jewish mothers are silly.
5) My blowtorch! Nobody understands me but my blowtorch. There's nothing like melting stuff to make you feel better - and you get pretty jewelry in the end!

Five things I'm thankful for today:

That it's a new day, and even though yesterday didn't go so well, I can start over.

That I made it through the whole day yesterday (and this morning) without weighing myself.

That I went grocery shopping and have a fridge full of good foods.

That today is a quiet day with no place to go so I can just hang out for a change.

For my exercise ball -- so that when Nicholas naps, I can exercise and still watch my court tv shows!!

I'm thankful...

1. ...that even though I have a terrible blister to show for my choice of shoes, I put together a great outfit for my performance tonight and looked stunning.
2. ...that I managed to find a single bandaid in my medicine cabinet.
3. ...that I did my DDRing BEFORE the performance, before I had this blister.
4. ...for my friends in the choir; they are such wonderful people.
5. ...that I found my cameral last night (after searching for weeks) so I was able to get pics of myself looking great for my SO.

Wow. That really serves to refocus the mind, doesn't it? I was just on AIM with said SO, whining about my blistered heel and the fact that my hip is really badly bruised from misjudging the edge of a chair...not actually that big a deal, is it? ;)
