June 3 was my birthday...so I am/was grateful for the many many friends that took the time to tell me happy birthday. I am also very grateful for the gospel in my life...it is what has kept me sane these last few months.

I am grateful for the love and suppot from my family even though I'm back living in their house and they are helping to support me. I am grateful for my church that I joined in March. My church has helped me grow in so many ways and I found out about this website at church.

I am most grateful for my health and my husband and kids. This is ironic that this is the topic today as I just found out my brother in law has ALS and I have been thinking all day how much more worse life can be.

I am thankful for the support my husband gives me. He understands my great intentions but not so great follow through and is excited that I found this site. He believes in me as well as everyone on here that "I can do it!"

I am also thankful to have a wonderful job that I love going to. It helps to keep me calm and collected when I get frustrated at home. Being a massage therapist, how can you NOT find peace and serenity when rooted to Mama Earth :)

I am thankful for my wonderful hubby and 2 girls! Without them, I dont know that I would WANT to do this! Because of them and now, finally realizing it, I am doing this for me too! A long road ahead of me, but I can and WILL do it along with all of the amazing Spark members out there!

I am thankful for my hubby and kids - which is technically 3 things but I count the kids as 1. They have all been supportive of my journey on here and when looking at other kids in the playground or park and how my kids act most of time (except to each other) I know I am extremely lucky to have them!

I am thankful for my husband who had been so supportive in the last year (it hasn't always been that way). He helps me stay on track with my eating and with getting the kids in bed so I can have time to exercise.

It may sound funny, but I am also very thankful for my wonderful doctor. She is amazing and has worked with me in so many ways to get to where I am. She is encouraging in my weight loss journey without making me feel like I am under a microscope with my weight.

I am also thankful to you guys for always being encouraging and motivating.

I am thankful that it isn't raining today after weeks and weeks of gray, drizzly weather; and I am thankful that even though I had a kind of bad evening last night (very frustrating meeting with my boss), I didn't give in to emotional eating!

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

I am thankful for my sweet little dog. She was sick last night so we didn't take our usual evening walk. Aside from worrying about her (she's fine now) it was surprising how much I missed the walk as a time to decompress at the end of the day. She's quite the good influence on me.

And I am thankful for raspberries.

I am grateful for my health, having a boyfriend who loves me regardless of how much I weigh and who is supportive of everything I do, and being blessed with two beautiful little girls to raise. There are so many things I am grateful for, but these are the top three right now. Good question Jersey!
