It's a great day to be alive

Saturday, July 20, 2013

I love that song (although I prefer the original Darrell Scott version to the Travis Tritt version) and that is how I feel today.

Today, I am thankful that...
1. It's gorgeous outside and it was 72 degrees when I went for my run this morning
2. I lost 2 more pounds and I am down to 231.
3. Back scratchers

Positive experience
Reading all the comments I received on my last blog, which was intensely personal, was very comforting. I was talking to my husband yesterday about how different this weight loss journey is than all the other times before. I've never maintained my changes this long, I've never lost this much weight before, I've never ENJOYED it before. I owe a lot of that to my SparkFriends.

I've got 31 pounds to go until Onederland, and I'm really excited about getting there. I think I may throw a party when I do!
