  • Today I am thankful for:

    Jessica: her posts hit me at just the right time, and I am more conscious of my blessings and need to write them down and not just take them for granted each day, things to be expected - although I do work hard, many of my blessings are more emotional than material, and Jess makes me realize that somehow.

    My dad: for being 77 today and ok. He has been my source of constant safety, protector, and given me unwavering love all my life. He is gentle, quiet, hardly gets angry at anyone, has a very dry sense of humor, loves all people - no matter of circumstance , religion or race, his faith is strong, his love for my mother endless....hes such a wonderful dad. I get to spend part of the day with him today - I LIKE THAT.

    My daughter: She made me a BFL supper last night! Yummo!

    I think I have found my dress for the wedding in July. I have to run it by a few gf's, but I'm pretty sure. Woop. After a full day and almost giving up again - BAM! :)

    My scale: it dropped again, and I am almost in a new set of numbers! Woop!

    This community - the regulars AND the newcomers - through them I am getting stronger with each day, each dilemma, each event and special occassion. My mind is changing for the better. THANK YOU CREW!

  • Today I am grateful for:

    My husband who continues to show me, in so many different ways, that i am loved (we came home from the late show last night and he stayed up with me to watch my Body of Works DVD - IT CAME :), after it was over he looked at me and said "I can eat jus the way you are, i can do the things you are doing because they make sense and are healthy, if you are interested in a personal trainer then lets get you one, whatever it takes my lovely wife"

    Today being able to pass along to others some of the fortune that God has seen to bless me and my family with

    Knowing that i really can look deep inside of myself and see some changes starting - like finding a reserve that i never had before to be successful at something - hmmmm it gives me goose bumps just thinking about it  -   goose bumps are good :)

    The suport i have, from this community and my family,  this time around doing BFL - everyone is PRICELESS!!!   Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The coffee and breakfast that i can smell coming from the kitchen that my husband is making for me

    Today being a quiet day that i get to spend with my husband/friend just putzing around the house instead of going at Mach 7
