Thankful is a State of Mind

Here are some of the things I am thankful for this year:

  • Not giving in to my food cravings.
  • Finding new healthy indulgences.
  • Maintaining the motivation to go to the gym regularly.
  • Weight Watchers for giving me the tools I need for healthy weight loss.
  • My boyfriend, Len, for making the journey with me.
  • Having discovered an amazing weight loss support group in my fellow bloggers.
  • My nightly bag of 94% fat free popcorn (couldn’t do it without you).
  • Being back in a size 10 (the 8’s are still waiting in my closet).
  • My personal trainer, Bryce, who makes me work harder than I have ever worked before.
  • My water aerobics instructor, Debbie, who is absolutely the best!
  • My determination to reach my weight loss goal.
  • Vita Tops, a yummy one point treat.
  • Dr. Praeger who sees that I eat my veggies in the best burger ever.
  • Fage, who makes me think I am eating something naughty when I eat my daily yogurt.
  • My scale for seeing me through my 21.4 pound weight loss.
I am so fortunate to have the support and encouragement of my family and friends. Thank you all. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. You don't look far from goal - what will you blog about then?

I am looking forward to reaching my goal and then my main focus will be maintaining. I think it is the most difficult part of the journey, based on personal experience. Staying at my ideal weight is something I have NEVER done. But I am determined, this time, to succeed. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm sure it will be delicious.
