Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

I am mother of 3 sons, step mother of 1 son, mother in law to 3 wonderful women, grandmother to 5, soon to be ...

Abraham Lincoln once said." We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. Do we see the glass half full or half empty.

There are ten benefits of positive thinking.

1. A positive mind attracts postive events ....imagine how many great things you will experience in your life.

2. Postiive thinking promotes great and harmonious relationships because you notice the positive qualities in a person instead of dwelling on their defaults.

3. You make a better first impression because people are attracted to
a kind and friendly person.

4. Postiive thinkers experience birant health and are less prone to
depression and are less prone to illness.

5. Positive thinking is the key to success because it allows success to
become doable and easier.

6. Positive people overcome stress more easily.

7. Positive thinkers see problems as opportunities for growth.

8. Positive thinkers notice the abundance of good things in their lives because they develop an attitude of gratitude.

9. Positive thinking motivates us to achieve our goals.

10. Beauty shines from within a positive thinker because friendly and
happy people are extremely attractive and the inner beauty is able to be seen by others.

Make positive thinking you daily habit!

So you say: "The truth is so mundane it's hard for most people to believe." So you feel it is better to feed people who have diabetes and heart disease who can't walk a step without pain ideas that there are miracle diets and drugs to help them lose the weight quickly? I don't think so. People especially in that category of obesity should learn how to eat healthy even if it is a MUNDANE topic!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on the blog about my latest jewelry creations. And you are so right . . . the photos I make for the shops show the piece alongside a ruler for that very reason.

Hope all's well in your world!!!
