Default Thankful

First, I wanted to express my thanks for this great forum.

Considering tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, I'd like to ask everyone about what they are thankful for on their journeys to new and better lifestyles.

For me:

I'm thankful that my husband completely supports my attempts to overhaul my world.

I'm thankful that I love vegetables. Cauliflower is my favorite food!

I'm thankful that I don't have a huge sweet tooth.

I'm thankful that I have to take my lunch to work instead of getting tempted with restaurant or vending machine or cafeteria foods.

I'm thankful for all the love and support I've always gotten from my family. They never judged my weight gain, and they'll be ecstatic when I demonstrate my new approach to life.

And I'm thankful for you! Thank you!

What are you thankful for?

  • I'm thankful for a job that is challenging and interesting, enables me to work a flexible schedule, lets me work full time out of my home, and pays me enough to afford both a gym membership and a personal trainer.
  • I'm thankful for supportive friends who never fail to comment on how great I look.
  • I'm really thankful that my SO turned over the whole vegetable garden a few weeks ago so that I could plant the winter crop.
  • I'm thankful for raspberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, and winter squash. Soon I expect to be thankful for fennel, turnips, pea shoots, and snap peas.
  • I'm thankful for Trader Joe's.
  • I'm thankful that my SO is willing to try whatever crazy low calorie recipe I come up with for dinner and that he lets me steal a potato chip from his lunch every day.
  • I'm thankful for the sales pitch the staff at my gym gave me when I joined. Without their enthusiasm I never would have gotten started on this journey.
  • I'm thankful for the guava tree in my backyard (22 jars of guava jelly and counting!)
  • I'm thankful I have the next three days off!
  • I'm thankful for the self-discipline, determination, and competiveness my mother instilled in me.
  • I'm thankful the A's finally managed to win the first round of the play-offs and that I was at the clinching game, even though they went down in the second round. There's always next year! I'm also thankful the A's might be moving to Fremont!
  • I'm thankful for all my friends and family, especially my sister, my stepmom, and my SO.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wrote this for my blog, but thought that I would share it here as well....

I can't even believe how many things should be on this list, but here it goes....

I am thankful that I have three beautiful kids that are healthy, smart, and imaginative.

I am thankful that I have the support of my family when life throws me a curve.

I am thankful that I have friends that are so good to me on a daily basis.

I am thankful that I have a job that affords me the ability to take care of my kids and live the life that I am accustomed to living.

I am thankful that I have my health and that I am taking charge of my health before it is too late.

I am thankful for the beautiful home that I live in and the luxuries that we take for granted everyday.

I am thankful that I am a strong, independent woman that does not feel the need to have someone around to make her complete. I am thankful that I am in relationships because I want to be, not because I feel that I have to be.

Last, but not least...I am thankful for all of the shoes and purses in my closet and my brand new truck that I love!
If you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always gotten.
