One of my favorite Tweeps, Diz, wrote a post on her blog about being thankful. And while I do talk about being thankful from time to time, I think it’s important to focus on it more than I do.
Diz listed three reasons she had to be thankful, and I’m going to do the same thing. In life, good and bad things happen, but I choose to focus on the good.
1) I am thankful that my body is getting smaller. It is hard to see a difference at times, but when I look at pictures from April, I can see a little difference.
2) I am thankful that I have enough time and enough resources to concentrate on losing weight. My friend, Josh, says “the only time you have is the time you make.” And it’s true, but I’m lucky to be at a point in my life in which I can be as selfish as I need to be to get this done. 😉
3) I am thankful for the support I receive from my friends and family and tweeps and those who leave encouraging comments on my blog. It feels good to be reminded that even when it’s hard the rewards are great. So to each of you who has taken the time to encourage me, I thank you. Each encouraging word, whether it comes from someone at my WW meeting or in the form of a comment on Facebook or my blog, means more than I could ever express.
I am thankful for so many things, and I am enjoying the life I’ve been given more than ever before. I know I gush a lot, but I think it’s so important to keep things in perspective. And even though I wish every unwanted pound could be gone by morning, I’m happy to know that if I keep working hard, eventually it will be.
