1. I am grateful for my family. It is sometimes easy for me to forget this when I feel overwhelmed by everyone’s needs, but I truly am grateful to have a family that I love and that loves me so much. There are so many people out there who have little or no involvement with their family. I have a truly positive relationship with my family.
2. I am grateful for my job. Not many people have a job that they truly enjoy. I have a job that I love and feel that I was meant to do. I need to remind myself of this when I feel tired or stressed.
3. I am grateful for Marianne and all that she does for me and my family. She is a true blessing in my life.
4. I am grateful for the spring that is upon us. I look forward to getting outside.

Random thoughts
I think that I am depressed. I have let so many things spin out of control lately. I am not even taking care of my personal self. Why am I doing this? Why can’t I seem to do the things that I really need to do even though there are such negative repercussions to not doing them, like not calling the car company, or doing my time sheets/notes. I think I should make an appointment with a counselor yet I have known this for quite some time and I still have not done it. I will do this tomorrow.

I have been feeling stressed and overwhelmed lately. I have a hard time saying no to people. I have this need to please everyone around me.

I am disappointed with my weight. I have been stuck at 188 for so long. I wonder though if this is true. While I know that I need to lose more I think perhaps in some ways I am content with where I am. I have come so far. And while I want to lose more I am having a hard time finding the drive/motivation/oomph that I had when I first started this journey. I am hoping that as I start training for the best buddies ride several things will happen: I will lose some weight which will motivate me to lose more, as I start exercising I will have more energy, more energy will lead to me feeling better about myself which will lead me to care more about myself.

I am going to try to do this daily. I am hoping that by doing this I will be more aware of my daily actions. I am not always good with follow through so if anyone reads this and just wants to send me a reminder to do my daily journal I would appreciate it. I am hoping that once I get into a routine it will just become a habit/ritual.

    It sounds like you have a plan. Maybe you need to reassess what you are eating. Also stress, can keep you from losing. I am in the same situation. I have been stuck now for a while no matter what I do. I think my body likes where it is.

    Good luck with your goals of smoking and getting things together.
