This has been such an excruciatingly LONG day!
First thing this a.m. I weighed in and found out I lost FOUR POUNDS this week! Woo HOO! Can't wait to tell my SparkFamily! Wait and wait and wait...here I am almost MIDNIGHT sharing the excitement! Sheesh it's frustrating not to be able to shout out to you all for such a long time!
This week I got nervous when a visit to Old Country Buffet over the weekend put my calories up to around 3200...so I buckled down to 1200-1500 since and voila! 205 is an awfully SWEET number! :-) I think the cycling of calories UP and DOWN has been helping me out.
Although I may not be able to pop in on my Friend Feed as I would like throughout the day, I sure carry your support with me throughout my day! So in the spirit of Thanksgiving I wanted to share these thoughts from Marlene of MotivateUs.com:
Thanks for not having
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Thanks for lacking knowledge
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Thanks for difficult times
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Thanks for limitations
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Thanks for challenges
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Thanks for mistakes made
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Thanks for exhaustion
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made the effort.
Thanks for setbacks
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Thanks for troubles
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
